Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 526 1

There's a big, new, shiny PS5 exclusive on the scene, and we expect it'll be a popular pick this weekend. Yes, Stellar Blade is here, and it's well worth checking out if you're in the mood for some good old-fashioned monster-murking action. There's lots of other stuff to play, though, as our team shows with an eclectic mix of PS5 and PS4 titles.

I'm taking to the high seas this weekend in Sea of Thieves. I've been keen to check out this game for years, and now that its sailed into our PS5 home shores, it's finally time! In single player land though, I think I'm going to try and squeeze in a little bit of Fallout 4 now that the PS5 update has dropped.

I've been heads down on Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes these past couple of weeks, only occasionally surfacing for some Helldivers 2. For a change of pace, I plan on checking out the PS5 update to the best Fallout game, Fallout 4, a hill I'll die on alone, with only the ever-faithful Preston Garvey to watch my back. Time and increasingly demanding baby willing, I might even check out this TV adaptation everyone raves about!

Liam Croft

I'll be jumping between the new PS5 version of Fallout 4 and Stellar Blade, both of which I'm excited to start playing.

Robert Ramsey

If you had told me I'd be playing Fallout 4 again, in the year 2024, I would have questioned my own sanity. But here I am, enjoying my wasteland adventures for the... fifth time? Sixth? The gameplay loop is still so addictive!

Stephen Tailby

I have some unfinished business with Dave the Diver, so I'll be hopping back into the Blue Hole this weekend. I'm also very tempted to grab Hi-Fi Rush in the PS Store sale, as I've been wanting to play that for a while now.

That's all we've got this time, but what about you lot? What's on the agenda this weekend? Let us know what you're playing in the comments section below.
