Axe nicely

The nights are drawing in and the skies have turned a subtle shade of grey; the summer's officially over and it's time to start thinking about investing in a new woolly jumper or three. The good news is that while the sun goes on annual leave, games are beginning to release, and while we're not quite in the thick of the silly season just yet, it's right around the corner. Hype!

I'm going to be popping pills and nodding my head to filthy saw waves like a crazed drug addict this weekend. No, I'm not off to Creamfields or anything like that – I've got to pump out my Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 review as it's a little late.

It's the last weekend before Rise of Iron launches, so I'll be trying to add to my pile of strange coins in Destiny. I can see Sammy shaking his head from here.

I'm increasingly getting the feeling that Destiny is actively trolling me. Every time I finish what I think is the last quest on my log, it promptly serves up another. I will not give in, but I'm running out of time if I want to achieve my goal before Rise of Iron drops. It's not all Destiny this weekend, though, as I'll be playing the Dead Rising Triple Pack, and serving up some zombie smashing action to a live stream at some point Saturday night.

I'm reliving some of my childhood's best memories with a replay of Final Fantasy VIII right now, and I'm absolutely loving it. I'll also spend some time on the superb PES 2017: Pro Evolution Soccer which, after spending about two days pulling in licences and kits via option files, is now finally presented as well as it plays.

I'm jumping back into No Man's Sky this weekend for a fresh dose of slow, chilled out space exploration. When it all gets a bit too lonely out in the cosmos, I'll come back down to Earth to play some Rocket League and Worms W.M.D with friends.

So without any betas or games having free weekends, this weekend I am returning to the Borderlands series with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on the PS4.

Short but sweet this week, then – but with almost 100 comments last time out, we're sure that you'll do the talking for us. We just have one question left to ask: what are you playing this weekend? Let us know below.
