Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 531 1

And just like that, an epic week is behind us, one which saw us play host to yet another State of Play livestream, as well as mark the re-release of MultiVersus. Here's what we're playing this weekend.

Aaron Bayne

I'm busy chipping away at The Finals battle pass as well as prepping for Destiny 2: The Final Shape. But after going to see Furiosa at the cinema, I'm also revisiting Mad Max, a supremely underrated game in my opinion.

Graham Banas

In addition to working on a review for Sushi Ben, I'll probably be dipping into some XDefiant, as well as The Finals. Gotta get a few more tiers on that The Finals battle pass before the next season starts!

Issy van der Velde

This weekend I'm going full nostalgia mode and playing The Simpsons: Hit & Run on my GameCube. I should also dive back into Elden Ring to prepare for Shadow of the Erdtree.

Khayl Adam

I’m playing something for review, but to mix things up I’ve been getting my Elden Ring character ready for Shadow of the Erdtree. I started a NG+ run, and beelined for Volcano Manor to do some stuff I missed last time. I'll need to get the skills up again in order to beat Radahn afterwards, but it’s good to be back!

Liam Croft

After eventually bouncing off it on my first attempt, I'm on a new playthrough of Baldur's Gate 3. I feel I better understand the game this time around and have now invested more time into it and made less progress than the first time — a perfect combination. I'm hoping I can stick with it this time.

Stephen Tailby

I've been quite enjoying the revived MultiVersus, so I'll be properly digging into it over the weekend. All the new characters seem really fun to mess around with; I'm quite fond of The Joker, which I wasn't expecting.

That's everything keeping us busy this weekend, then — but what about the rest of you? What games are you playing and why? Let us know in the comments section below.
