We’re teetering on the precipice of gameageddon. Our super secret review document is filled with titles, reviewers have been assigned, and Push Square Towers is awash with complaints regarding the length of certain releases. Anybody would think that we’d entered the third circle of Hell or something. Still, with such animation behind the scenes, it means that there’s plenty to talk about in this week’s WAYP. Let’s get started, shall we?

Sammy Barker, Editor

I’ll be spending my weekend on all fours, desperately trying to avoid an extraterrestrial with an overripe banana for a head. Alien: Isolation arrived late this week, but I’m putting myself through prolonged sessions of terror in order to bring you a review. The things that we do...

Robert Ramsey, Associate Editor

I’ll keep this one quick: Destiny's weekend gear guy has an exotic Titan helmet for 13 strange coins, and I have 12. Be kind to me, utterly random and stupid loot system.

Ben Potter, Video Editor

This weekend, I'm finally going to return to everyone's favourite video game location, Seattle, courtesy of inFAMOUS: Second Son's prequel, inFAMOUS: First Light. Now, I'm unsure whether I'm going to enjoy it quite as much as I did the full-blooded release [The combat’s better – Ed], but as soon as editor Sammy informed me that the Platinum went down easier than a slice of neon pie [What? – Ed], then my mind was made up – I had to add it to my collection.

As this week marks the beginning of the game release silly season, this weekend will be spent either driving along the sunny coast of Southern Europe in Forza Horizon 2 [Does not compute – Ed], or battling some downright ugly Orcs in Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.

Edwin Garcia, Reviewer

About a month after its glorious launch, I’m still playing Destiny. Yes, I know, everyone seems to think that it’s boring [It is! – Ed], but I’m 92 hours in and am planning on finally completing the Vault of Glass. I might sneak in some Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Super Smash Bros. time, too, since those are the hip games to be playing right now.

Graham Banas, Reviewer

After having played some Destiny and some NHL 15 quite a lot over the past couple weeks, and leaving surprisingly unsatisfied, I'm really hoping that the one-two punch of DriveClub and Alien: Isolation have it in them to right that wrong. If they do, it's going to be one Hell of a week!

Jamie O’Neill, Reviewer

I've an appetite for old school 1990s hack-and-slash games recently – especially with a key retro title in the fantasy brawling genre arriving free on PlayStation Plus next week – so I’ll boot up my PlayStation 2 to revisit The King of Dragons on Capcom Classics Collection Volume 2.

Simon Fitzgerald, Reviewer

This weekend, I will be driving around my remote control car in an attempt to hack my way through Watch Dogs: Bad Blood. Other than that, I will be playing a few different games: Destiny, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Battlefield 4, and Child of Light.

That’s us, but what are you playing this weekend? Are you still hooked on Destiny, or have you moved on to bigger (and better) things? Air your agenda in the comments section below.
