Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (April 6-7)

Welcome to another weekend! There's plenty to enjoy on Xbox over the next couple of days including loads of new Xbox Game Pass titles, a fresh batch of Free Play Days additions, and hundreds of discounts in the Xbox Spring Sale!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

As usual, I can't keep up with all the recent additions to Xbox Game Pass! Ark: Survival Ascended is definitely now part of my backlog, as is EA Sports PGA Tour, but I think Lego 2K Drive is going to get most of my time this weekend. I'm a sucker for a good racing game, and what I've played of it so far has been pretty enjoyable.

In terms of games I actually own in my collection, it's probably going to be Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown that commands my attention. I'm really not fussed about the story in that game (which is a shame), but fortunately the excellent platforming and combat makes up for it. It's the most fun I've had with a PoP game to date actually.

Have a good weekend, folks!

Recently I’ve been on a bit of a puzzler streak, playing games like The Entropy Centre, Portal 2 and the like. I even bought a £6 (at the time) indie game called Re:Touring that has a similar vibe, y’know the one vibe I’m talking about, right? Going into a room with cubes, buttons and beams, using your brain ripples to solve the problem, then progressing through the next increasingly challenging room? Yeah, basically that again. I really like these games and think they’re super satisfying once you figure ‘em out.

Also, I’d love to dip back into Unicorn Overlord because, well, I am obsessed. The only reason I’ve paused on it is because I’m actually reviewing my first game for Pure Xbox (how exciting) and there simply aren't enough hours in the day.

Before I wrap up, I’ve been on a bit of a tear with Battlefield V too. Did you know it’s six years old now? Six whole years! It’s still a phenomenal game so I’m sure I’ll be pouring an hour or two into it this weekend too.

Hope you have a lovely weekend and happy gaming, folks.
