It’s not been a particularly busy week in the games industry, but Dreams’ release feels significant, not just because it’s a major game but because more big launches are right around the corner. Yes, delays mean that the schedule isn’t quite as crowded as it once was, but you better start thinking about cleaning up that backlog before you get snowed in.

I think I’m probably allowed to say that I’ll be playing Two Point Hospital this weekend, and as a Theme Hospital fanboy I genuinely can’t wait. I’ll also be diving in and out of Dreams, as I feel like Early Access creators have been waiting until launch week to publish their best work.

Dreams, of course! I'll be playing it as much as possible this weekend, as I'm working on something fun that you'll get to see pretty dang soon. It isn't Snacks on a Train, mind -- apologies. One day.

My terrible, horrible friend suggested my Rainbow Six: Siege squad try playing Rainbow again despite us all having given up on the game about a year ago. And now we're all hooked again and I don't know how to feel. But I do know what I'll be playing: Rainbow Six: Siege.

With a relatively quiet time between now and the inevitable PS5 launch later this year, I will be trying to clear some of my backlog. The past few weeks I have managed to clear Death Stranding, Days Gone, and Dark Souls III from my hefty backlog. This weekend I’m hoping to finish off the gargantuan Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
What are you playing this weekend? Have you got anything particular in mind, or will you just play whatever takes your fancy? Let us know in the comments section below.
