Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (April 20-21)

The weekend starts here! We've got plenty of good stuff to try on Xbox over the next few days, including a few more Xbox Game Pass additions, the usual batch of Xbox Free Play Days titles, and a special XDefiant test from Ubisoft!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

Well, I've got a game I'm playing this weekend that I can't talk about, but you'll find out about it pretty soon. If I get any extra time, it'll probably be spent with NHL 24 as I'm very much in the mood for the playoffs right now! It's hard keeping track of it all when you're on UK time, but I'll be watching as many games as I can.

I've also downloaded the free Xbox demo for Penny's Big Breakaway, which immediately captured my attention when it released earlier this year. I'm hearing it's an extremely underrated game, so I'm very interested to check it out.

Have a good weekend, folks!

I'll definitely be checking back in with Ubisoft's XDefiant this weekend - the free-to-play shooter is currently undergoing a huge server stress test on Xbox that I'd like to contribute to. This one has the potential to become an FPS mainstay in the coming months and years, so I'm keen to see how it's shaping up!

Otherwise, I'll probably be playing some more Forza Horizon 3 over the weekend. I'm not sure why — maybe it's the sun finally peeking out in England — but I've been back to Playground's 2016 racer this past week-or-so and have been having a ball of a time with it. Off to the Outback we go!

Have a great weekend!

No point beating around the bush here, I’m fully invested in the Fallout universe right now. I recently started Fallout: New Vegas for the first time and I’m keen to crack on with that. But boy, oh boy am I busy this weekend.

I’ll be head down at my desk for most of Saturday, working away on something for you. But, I figured when my video editing mind gets sleepy I’ll take a break to play some New Vegas, or even Fallout 4. Man, I just want to play them all. Send help.

Happy gaming, folks!
