Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (April 13-14)

It's time for the weekend! As usual, there's lots to enjoy on Xbox over the next few days including a bunch of new Xbox Game Pass titles, three more Free Play Days additions, and lots of great offers in the ongoing Xbox Spring Sale 2024.

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

Is anyone else in a massive wrestling mood at the moment? WrestleMania was absolutely incredible last weekend (and I'm a huge AEW fan as well), so unsurprisingly I've been playing a lot of WWE 2K24 lately. It's the best entry in the series to date and absolutely packed with things to do, so I'm sure I'll be playing plenty more of that.

I think it's time for me to check out Shadow of the Tomb Raider on Xbox Game Pass as well. I enjoyed the 2013 reboot back at launch, but 2015's sequel actually put me off a bit - I felt it was too heavily focused on near-endless shootouts. I've heard the third game in the trilogy alters the balance a bit, so I'm ready to finally conclude this saga.

Have a good weekend, folks!

Raise your hand if you’ve started watching the Fallout series on Amazon Prime! Last night I watched the first two episodes - and really enjoyed them - but it did give me a major case of the cravings to play Fallout 4 again. Saying that, a part of me wants to wait for the next-gen update it’s gonna get at the end of this month. Toughie… what do you think? Wait or play?

Besides the wasteland talk, I’m going to get stuck into Unicorn Overlord again. I genuinely can’t get enough of it. It’s too good folks, too good. That said, I do fancy checking out Botany Manor now it’s on Game Pass. It was already on my radar but since Nintendo Life gave it a good review score it’s certainly piqued my interest.

So that’s about it for Xbox gaming, I do fancy playing a bunch of Mario Tennis on my Game Boy Colour so I’ll probably play a match or two on that. Anyhoo, happy gaming folks!
