Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (April 9-10)

Welcome to the weekend! If you're stuck for what to do over the next couple of days, we've seen a few titles hit Xbox Game Pass including MLB The Show 22, plenty of new games have hit the market including LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, we've got two more Free Play Days titles to choose from, and of course the Xbox Spring Sale is now live, allowing you to take advantage of hundreds of discounts on the biggest games.

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

You can probably guess what I'll be playing this weekend based on the two big releases of the past few days. The first is LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which I reviewed here at Pure Xbox but didn't get anywhere near achieving 100% completion in, so I'm going to be sticking with that great game for a long time to come yet.

The other is Sony's MLB The Show 22, which I've barely had a chance to touch so far. It's so great to have the MLB The Show series on Xbox these days, and I really enjoyed last year's game, so it'll be good to get properly started with a brand-new entry over the weekend. Plus, you get 10 free DD packs with Game Pass, so that's a bonus.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Hello. This weekend I'm going to be diving into a bunch of stuff on Xbox, including Godfall Ultimate Edition, MLB The Show 22 and Chinatown Detective Agency.

I've been meaning to give Godfall another go since falling off the wagon with it on PS5 way back when it first released so am looking forward to diving in there to check out any improvements, and have been patiently awaiting the release of Chinatown Detective Agency, so I can't wait to crack into that one.

Elsewhere, I'll be jumping into Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga's co-op mode to blast through the three trilogies with my kids. I've already completed the game on Switch, which is an amazing port, but can't wait to get stuck into the shiny Series X version over the next few days. Have a great weekend!
