There’s tons to tuck into this weekend, as the PlayStation 4 enjoys arguably its last large trickle of new releases before Christmas. Sure, there’s still Just Cause 4, Battlefield V, and Darksiders III to come – but they can’t compete with the triple-whammy of Hitman 2, Fallout 76, and Spyro: Reignited Trilogy.

I’m right at the very end of Red Dead Redemption 2, a game which I’ve thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish. It’s consumed my playtime for almost a month, but it’s been worth every minute.

It's more Fallout 76 this weekend as I slog through the 15fps wasteland in order to bring you a review. The most frustrating thing about it is that Fallout 4's addictive gameplay loop is here -- it's just buried beneath a much worse game.

Now that the review is all wrapped up for Spyro: Reignited Trilogy, I’ll continue gliding about and collecting gems as I aim to grab the Platinum for Spyro 1. I’ll also dip into Tetris Effect and Red Dead Redemption 2 if I get the time. Man, we really are spoilt for choice at the moment.

This week I am losing my mind trying to get SS rank on every level for Tetris Effect. When I am not playing that, however, I’m relaxing with Valkyria Chronicles 4, enjoying the tales of war and anime.

I finally finished the Red Dead Redemption 2 story, so it's time for a break. I picked up the Spyro: Reignited Trilogy and got the platinum for Spyro 1 which was a huge breath of fresh air after so much Red Dead. This weekend is Ripto's Rage!

My excitement for the 3rd December release of the PlayStation Classic is building nicely. I've a bunch of EDGE reviews and features from 1995 to read to get myself into the PSone launch mindset, and I plan to play Jumping Flash! and Battle Arena Toshinden, too.

It's games, games, games this weekend. One day I'll finish Red Dead Redemption 2, but besides that I'll be heading online to play more Battlefield V for review, and I hope to fit in a bit of Fallout 76 for good measure.

Gosh am I glad I booked this week off work. I’ve been revelling in my love for platformers with the Reignited Trilogy, a fantastic throwback and aesthetically pleasing remake. I’ve explored Appalachia in Fallout 76 so far without being torched by a Scorchbeast. I’ve also succumb to the nostalgia and immersion wrought by Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee.

As I get closer and closer to the conclusion of Red Dead Redemption 2 I’ve been drawing my remaining time in the old West by also playing The Forest. This survival horror game plays on primal human fears and leaves you stranded and alone in a world with the odds stacked against you. Not only is it an enjoyable survival experience it’s a clever demonstration on how effective atmosphere is in a game.
