After the sunshine of the Easter weekend, it’s all feeling a touch gloomy, isn’t it? Fortunately, it’s the weekend, so there’s always room to cheer yourself up with some good old video games. Here’s what we’re playing.

I never thought it would happen, but I’ve been playing No Man’s Sky all week. I’ve now plundered an intergalactic fortune, and will be spending my weekend searching for the perfect planet to build my base on.

Well, when I wrote about playing Disco Elysium last weekend, I thought I'd be finished by now — but an unfortunate bug scuppered my progress for days. I think I've found a workaround, but even if I have, it's still such a shame that the game's so rough on PS5 at times. There really is quite a special experience buried under the wonky controls and technical issues.

Since my Resident Evil marathon is on hiatus until Resident Evil Village comes out, I figured now might be a good time to finally tackle Ghost of Tsushima. Looking forward to seeing what the game has to offer!

With 12 weekends until the PS3's PS Store closes, my next two colourfully presented 2D suggestions of Disney's Action Game Featuring Hercules and Mickey's Wild Adventure, are both charmingly animated. They're on the UK's store currently at a PSone Classic price of £1.69, plus it's worth into-the-screen chasing your way to the GameHut YouTube channel for Jon Burton's insight as the designer of Traveller's Tales' retro games.
What are you playing this weekend? Is there anything new you're planning to dig into, or will you be revisiting a classic from your archives? As always, let us know below.
