For those of you who care, it’s Super Bowl LV this weekend, which means Brady vs Mahomes – and, er, a live performance from The Weeknd. For the rest of you, it’s another good opportunity to play some video games. Whatever the case, let us know what you’re playing in the comments section below.

I've been getting my juices flowing for the forthcoming Super Bowl by wasting an unreal amount of time in Madden NFL 21's Ultimate Team mode. I currently have an 89 overall team with some real studs on both offense and defense, but I'm targeting that coveted 90 overall rating.

I think I'll dip back into Destruction AllStars here and there this weekend. It isn't perfect, but it's got something at its core that's keeping me interested. Really interested to see how the game evolves in the coming weeks and months. Elsewhere, Sackboy: A Big Adventure still needs playing; I've neglected it long enough.

After weeks of talking about it, I can confidently say that this is going to be the weekend where I finally finish off Resident Evil 2 Remake! If I finish early enough though, I'd like to go back and tackle more of Final Fantasy VII Remake, since that has been on hiatus for over a month now.

I've discovered hidden away on the title screens of the first two Turrican games that I can access a music menu by pressing R1, so between playing Amiga games on Turrican Flashback, I'll be listening to some of my favourite Chris Huelsbeck tunes like Turrican's Jet Pack Attack and especially Turrican II's Traps.

I’ve been mostly playing Okami HD. The game had never really been on my radar until the PS4 remaster came about and I’ve been pleasantly surprised by it so far. I’ve also decided to start anew on No Man’s Sky having installed the PS5 update. It feels like a totally new game compared to the one I loaded up back in 2016 in the best way.
