On the podium

The last weekend of Olympic action awaits, and we're warming ourselves up for a weekend spent… Scoffing snacks and watching others exert themselves on the television. Of course, we'll be squeezing in a whole lot of gaming in between the various scheduled finals. Here's what we're playing.

I've got an absolute ton of games to play, and I still need to polish off Ratchet & Clank, but with the Olympics only coming around once every four years… Well, honestly I'm probably going to enjoy the final weekend of that.

Gameplay footage and the roster for WWE 2K17 has been slowly trickling out recently, which has given me an urge to play some virtual wrestling. I'll be spending my weekend suplexing people in WWE 2K16's Universe mode.

Alongside another racing game for review, I'll also be spending some time in the Titanfall 2 beta and World of Warcraft with my girlfriend. We're getting ourselves prepared for the new Legion expansion which is out next week (not that anyone cares after 12 years, of course).

It's geometry and platforming in Metrico+ for me this weekend as I hop back on the review train for Push Square. Other than that, I hope to fill my weekend with some Hyper Light Drifter and Titanfall 2's open beta. I've also got to attack a titan of a game for another review later next week, but I'm going to keep that one a secret for now. Wait, what? I didn't give it away!

I'm finishing Persona 4 and clearing out all of my backed up Fallout 4 DLC. If the weather's nice I may stay in and wander the verdant forestry of The Witcher III: Blood and Wine.

Once again I'll be playing through The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – I promise I'll finish it soon, though in a way I really don't want it to end. I'll also be playing Hitman: Bangkok, trying to find the most ludicrous ways of killing my targets (the best I've found involves a coconut).

I'm still meandering across the galaxy in No Man's Sky, making slow but steady progress towards the centre. You'll be able to read the start of my journey tomorrow in the first Mission Blog – give it a look if you can. Plug over. Meanwhile, I'll be playing a little something else for review, and if I still have some spare time, Ratchet & Clank is sitting half-played on my shelf, and looking very tempting indeed.

I am still working my way through Borderlands 2 on the PS4. Other than that, I might check out the Titanfall 2 beta.

Okay, we're out of gas – but there's still plenty of time for you to tell us what you're up to. What are you playing this weekend? Let us know in the comments section below.
