At the races

Our bi-weekly weekend gaming discussion may be hitting the airwaves a little later than expected, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t time for us to disclose all of our delicious gaming plans. As always, this isn’t a one-way affair – we want to know what you’re playing, too. Don’t forget to let us know what’s keeping your PlayStation consoles busy in the comments section below.

I’ll be hitting the links in Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational for the PlayStation 3. I loved the PlayStation Vita version, so I’m hoping that this big-screen re-release also scores a hole in one.

I'm looking forward to starting Muramasa Rebirth, which arrived yesterday, but am currently playing Hotline Miami and WipEout 2048's Fury DLC – all on the Vita. With the hotly anticipated Killzone: Mercenary still to come, this feels like Sony delivering on portable gaming nirvana.

This weekend, as I'm holidaying across France, my Vita's finally getting the love that it deserves. After initially punishing it with the slightly naff Resistance: Burning Skies, I've more than made up for my malice by playing the excellent Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition and continuing the outstanding Persona 4: Golden.

I’ve taken a rather jovial approach to gaming over the last few weeks, with my focus mainly on High Moon's rather brilliant Deadpool and the quietly impressive LittleBigPlanet Karting. This is proving a much needed detox from the hyper-realistic first-person games that I normally frequent.

With the excitement surrounding the upcoming PlayStation Network retro remakes, I’m playing classic Mega Drive titles Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Strider. I’ve been scouring through the boxes and instruction art work, because Japanese Mega Drive illustrations are a pleasure to scrutinise.

This weekend I'll be jumping and probably cursing my way through Cloudberry Kingdom's relentlessly unforgiving platforming for Push Square's incoming review. In order to wind down from the indie game's brutality, I'll likely be continuing to rack up my KO count in Dynasty Warriors 8, in which I'm desperately trying to unlock the remaining hypothetical routes of the story. I can't wait to see how some elements branch out differently.

That's us, but what about you lot? Don’t forget to dive into the comments section and let us know what you’re playing – we read every reply. No, honest, we do.
