What Are You Playing This Weekend?

Well, England didn’t win the World Cup – although it must be a nerve-racking weekend for our resident Croatian reader. This author’s been backing France since before the tournament started [Stealth brag – Ed] so it’s hard to see anyone other than Hugo Lloris lifting the trophy tomorrow, but stranger things have happened. Feels written in the stars for Kylian Mbappe to bag the winner, though, doesn’t it?

Due to the football I’ve barely watched any of Wimbledon, so I’m hoping to catch at least a little bit of that this weekend. On the gaming front, I haven’t really settled on anything and so my backlog remains as big as ever. I think I need something to really sink my teeth into before the holiday rush starts in earnest.

The arrival of Monster Hunter: World's summer festival has got me playing Capcom's finest once again, and after a long break, it feels great to get back into the swing of things.

I’m back on reviewing duty once more. This time, I’m turning my attention to Danger Zone 2, a game attempting to recapture the magic of Burnout’s Crash mode. I’ll also be exploring Sapienza as I get back to Hitman.

This is the first free weekend I’ve had in ages, so I plan to make the most of it by playing a few different indie games that I’ve been dying to play. I plan to play Xenon Valkyrie+, Reverie, and I’ve also just had a long awaited package delivered from Play-Asia which means that I’ll also be giving Sir Eatsalot a go.

This weekend will revolve around playing a little-known game that just released called Earthfall. It attempts to be the next Left 4 Dead, and you can look forward to my review early next week. Elsewhere, there's always Fortnite.

I will be continuing Bayonetta this weekend on the Xbox One, I am looking forward to finishing this one so I can start Bayonetta 2 on the Switch.  I have been enjoying it a lot it's really a shame that the Bayonetta series has become a Nintendo exclusive.


That's what we're playing this weekend, but what about you lovely lot? You know the drill, so let us know in the comments section below.
