Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (April 22-23)

Welcome to another weekend! If you're looking for ways to keep busy on Xbox over the next couple of days, we've got a bunch of recent Xbox Game Pass additions including The Last Case of Benedict Fox, there are four more Free Play Days titles to get stuck into, you can try out the free Street Fighter 6 demo on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, and hundreds of discounts are also currently live on the Xbox Store.

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

I'm having a bit of time away from work over the next week, so I might actually get some time to properly play a few games! To be honest though, I've been totally wrapped up in Disney Speedstorm over the past few days, and I wouldn't be surprised if I end up spending way too much time with it throughout May as well.

NHL 23 has been in my rotation lately due to the excitement of the playoffs in real life, so I might spend a few hours practicing my goalie skills in the World of CHEL. Oh, and I need to try the Street Fighter 6 demo without a doubt — I don't usually get too hooked on fighting games, but this one looks particularly fun!

Have a good weekend, folks.

I'll be spending much of this weekend just waiting for Redfall to be honest - it hits Xbox Game Pass on Tuesday and I'm getting rather excited about another freaking Arkane game coming out in just a few short days!

Elsewhere, Infinity Ward just added Plunder mode to Call Of Duty: Warzone 2.0 for the first time since its mainstay addition to the first Warzone, so I might give the new mode a go. I particularly enjoyed this playlist in Warzone 1 because it was quite nice and chill, which is a bit different to the main battle royale modes!

Have a lovely weekend.

Ahoy PX Gang!

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is probably what I should play… but I haven’t completed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order yet, so I’ve got to hold off for now. Big sad for me!

Instead, I’ll be booting up the zombie hack ‘n slash playground that is Dead Island 2. I’m just two achievements away from 100% and I want ‘em! Is anyone else struggling with the Trick Kick challenge (to jump kick three zombies)? No, no-one… just me, huh? Shame.

I’ve also just completed Deathloop in time for Redfall! I’m going to chase some achievements on Blackreef too. Turns out, your boy Craigo is an achievement hunter!

Happy gaming, folks!
