What Are You Playing This Weekend

E3 2017 is a distant memory and the temperatures have dipped to a somewhat more agreeable level (at least here in the UK, anyway) so it’s time to settle down for some serious gaming. With the release schedule slowly starting to thin ahead of the summer months, we have the distinct feeling that backlogs are going to take centre stage over the coming days. Here’s what we’re playing.

My mission to clear my bulging backlog begins with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, a game which I’m thoroughly enjoying thus far. It’s got a unique structure for a CoD campaign, but the action is top-notch as you’d expect, and there are a lot of cool sci-fi gadgets. Good game.

I was planning to play through another couple of the storylines in Code Realize but as I’ve just been sent a copy of God Wars: Future Past that will take up most of my weekend!

I'll be running laps and squeezing microseconds off my corner times in DiRT 4 and hitting meta humans with a mallet as Harley in Injustice 2.

I'll be finishing up my playthrough of Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair from the PS4 remastered collection this weekend. A great game on its own, but I don't think it quite matches the quality of the original, Trigger Happy Havoc. After that I'll be looking to start either Tales of Berseria or Kingdom Hearts, a series I am yet to dip my toes into.

It'll just be FIFA 17 and NBA 2K17 for me this weekend, as I continue my career modes in each game. The former follows the story of plucky League Two minnows Morecombe as they make their way to the Champions League, the latter is basically me calling for the ball excessively before being subbed off.

My gaming time this weekend will primarily be spent driving myself insane with Nex Machina, Housemarque's latest twin-stick triumph. I may also further my progress in WipEout Omega Collection if I grow weary of high octane, hard as nails arcade thrills... Wait!

Well, right now two games have their hooks in me: The Crew and Portal Knights. I seriously can't stop playing these two games.  So that is what I will be playing this weekend.

That's what we're playing, but what about you? Are you delving into your backlog, or playing something brand new? Show you know the drill in the comments section below.
