Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 517 1

We're now mere days away from the release of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, which we suspect is going to dominate WAYP from this point on. Time for one last hurrah before Cloud and crew arrive, then.

Aaron Bayne

After sinking roughly 10 hours into it, I'm hoping to seriously spec out my station wagon in Pacific Drive this weekend. It's a much tougher survival game than I had anticipated!

Graham Banas

Between working on a review for the Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons remake and the fact that the vast majority of my friend group and I having playing Helldivers 2 religiously, I'm going to have my work cut out for me trying to do anything other than play games this weekend! Maybe I'll even break out my VR headset. I haven't played Beat Saber in a good minute. It's time!

Jaimie Ditchfield

My weekend is either going to consumed by more Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth or a very-fast playthrough of the original Final Fantasy 7. Next week can't come soon enough, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth looks fantastic!

Jamie O'Neill

I'm interested in learning more about a 1991 NES Sunsoft game called Ufouria: The Saga, before its sequel launches on PS5 on Friday, March 1st.

Khayl Adam

Like many, I’ll be riding that Helldivers 2 queue, so here’s hoping Arrowhead’s increased server capacity helps out. Failing that, Persona 3 Reload is there, although both will sadly need to be set aside for Final Fantasy VII Rebirth next week, which must take priority. Happy days, indeed.

Liam Croft

I'll be playing more Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, which is proving to be consistently excellent.

Stephen Tailby

I'll mostly be playing Penny's Big Breakaway this weekend, a 3D platformer from some of the minds behind Sonic Mania. If I get the time, though, I'll definitely be slipping in a few rounds of Balatro — that game has really wormed its way into my head.

That's what's keeping us occupied in the days leading up to Rebirth, then. But what about the rest of you? As always, let us know what you're playing in the comments section below.
