Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (April 30 - May 1)

Welcome to the weekend! We've got a fresh batch of Xbox Game Pass games to enjoy over the next few days, along with three more Free Play Days titles, two new Games with Gold, and over 500 (!) deals to take advantage of.

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

There are a few things I'm very intrigued to try this weekend on Xbox Game Pass, primarily the former PlayStation exclusive Bugsnax, which looks like a fun time. I'm also keen to check out 7 Days To Die, but I'll have to get it installed on PC rather than console, as the Xbox version is notoriously out of date at this point.

Free Play Days is looking pretty good this weekend as well — I'm always up for a skateboarding game, and Session is included with the bunch over the next few days, so that's on the download list. I'm also on a PES 2021 kick at the moment (sorry eFootball 2022, but you're just not doing it for me), so I'll probably play a few games too.

Oh, and I can't forget Yoku's Island Express which is included with Xbox Games with Gold for May! Somehow I've never properly come across that game before, and it looks absolutely brilliant.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

This weekend I'll be getting stuck into an upcoming Xbox Game Pass title for review, which I'm very excited about! After my time with the brilliant Road 96 this past week, I may be onto a bit of a winning streak. Let's see!

Speaking of which, once I'm through with that upcoming game, I'm going to have to revisit Road 96 to see everything the game has to offer. Its branching story paths provide some great replayability options, and to be honest, I just want to eek out every story beat from this one as humanly possible.

Hope you lot have a relaxing weekend!
