Bloodborne PS4 PlayStation 4 1

This is it, folks – this is pretty much the last week before the release schedule goes absolutely mental for the holidays. Assuming you’re not already playing something new, then this may be your last opportunity to clear up your backlog. Good luck.

I polished off the first Shenmue last night, and it was pleasure to replay that game. I’m now on to Shenmue II, though, and I intend to take this slowly because it is very much my personal favourite game of all time.

I've only gone and got myself invested in a brand new Diablo III character, haven't I? A mere mention of that game is enough to give me the urge to go back for another run, and since there's a new season going on, the temptation was simply too great.

I have plenty of games to be getting on with this weekend, but first and foremost on the agenda is Donut County, a game about sending things tumbling down a hole in the ground. A review is on the way, but not before I also finally get started on DOOM.

After putting off starting Stardew Valley for multiple years, I've begun playing it, and now I'm not sure if I'll be able to stop. Someone send help!

I haven't checked out any August 2018 PS Plus games yet, so I'll download Draw Slasher on my PS Vita. I don’t actually know anything about Draw Slasher, except that you control a sword slashing ninja via finger-swiping touchscreen controls.

Embracing the uber-nerdiness of Warhammer 40k Inquisitor: Martyr which takes the Diablo format to space and playing Shadow Awakens to review which is a wicked cheap-'n'-cheerful top down combat heavy adventure, too.

Not been playing anything new but I have been going back to my favourite game of all time, Bloodborne. I may be on my 7th playthough of FromSoftware’s gothic masterpiece but this game never gets old for me.  

What are you playing this weekend, then? Are you prepared for the onslaught of the new releases incoming? Look for cover in the comments section below.
