Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (April 8-9)

Here we go again with another Xbox weekend! This week, we've been treated to some new Xbox Game Pass titles which you can check out, we've got four Free Play Days games live right now, and don't forget the massive Xbox Spring Sale 2023 has also begun, with hundreds of titles discounted until April 20th. Time to get your wallet out!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

I don't know about you, but I really enjoyed WrestleMania 39 last weekend, so I'm definitely in the mood for some more WWE 2K23 over the next couple of days. It helps that it's my favourite WWE game to ever grace Xbox, and I still haven't dipped into the likes of MyGM and Universe as much I want to. I've still got one eye on AEW: Fight Forever as well, especially following the announcement of a big Wembley show for AEW this August!

I also want to spend some time with EA Sports PGA Tour and PGA Tour 2K23 this weekend. If you're an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate member, you can try both for free over the next couple of days, and I think it'll be really interesting to see how they match up. In any case, it's nice to have two mainstream golf games on the market again!

Have a good weekend, folks.

Craig Reid, Video Producer

Ahoy folks!

Who’s up for a long weekend of gaming? I know I am! When I’m not chowing down on my Reese’s Easter Egg I’ll be dredging up the sinister dwellers of the ocean in DREDGE. I’m just captivated by its charm and horror tones. Hoping to make good progress with it this week so we can have a chat about it on PX YouTube.

If the depths get to me too much this weekend, I’ll take regular sea breaks on Forza Horizon 5’s Rally Adventure. Genuinely a big fan of trading racing lines for co-driver callouts in iconic rally fashion.
I might also… just might... bag myself Dead Space as it’s included in the Xbox Spring Sale 2023.

Happy gaming!
