Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (August 19-20)

Welcome to another weekend! As usual, there's a lot to enjoy on Xbox over the next few days including new Xbox Game Pass releases, four Free Play Days titles, and a whole bunch of great deals to take advantage of on the Xbox Store!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

I'll tell you what I've been hooked on since it released a couple of weeks ago... Quake 2! I was never a big Quake fan back in the day, but these remasters have been absolutely excellent. I've also been playing it exclusively on PC, so it gives me a good excuse to put my gaming PC and the PC Game Pass library to use for once!

I've also been inspired to return to my Xbox 360 following the news of the Xbox 360 store closure, and while I'm not necessarily going to buy anything, I've got games I'd like to dip back into. 007: Blood Stone is one of those titles, and another one is the best tennis game of all time, Top Spin 4! What a fantastic console the 360 still is...

Have a good weekend, folks.

Part of the ship, part of the crew… that’s what I’ll be chanting this weekend as I dive head first into my peer pressured purchase of Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew. I’ll admit, I honestly didn’t know this game existed until just recently and I’ve had a really nice time with it so far. The characters are voiced so well!

Outside of sailing the seven seas for booty, I’m going to drop into a few games of big bloody murder in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre! If you’re playing, lemme know and I’ll keep an eye out for you in the lobbies!
