Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (August 26-27)

Welcome to the weekend! If you're looking for ways to stay busy on Xbox over the next few days, we've got more recent Game Pass titles, multiple Free Play Days games, some big new releases including Immortals of Aveum and Armored Core 6, and over 500 deals available on the Xbox Store highlighted by a special Survival Sale!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

It's going to be a quiet one gaming-wise for me this weekend as I'm off to Wembley Stadium for AEW All In! Therefore, I might spend my Saturday building the hype by playing some AEW Fight Forever, which just added its fun (and ridiculous) Stadium Stampede battle royale mode earlier this week. Definitely good timing!

My wife and I have also been dipping back into my beloved The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series as she's never played through the entire series before, so hopefully we can make some more progress. She knows how the first two seasons end, but not the third or the fourth - it's the latter I'm particularly excited about.

Have a good weekend, folks!

Well, it's gonna be all about Armored Core VI: Fires Of Rubicon for me this weekend as I get to grips with FromSoftware's latest for our review, which we'll drop early next week!

I fully expect this mech epic is gonna fill all of my available time over the next few days so it's a good thing that what I've played thus far has been absolutely cracking. Early impressions are that this is the best AC of the long-running series, with super slick handling, some incredible bosses and great performance on Series X. Let's hope it keeps up the high standard.

I must admit, I’m not actually playing a lot at the moment. With Starfield just around the corner, I’m hesitant to get stuck into anything too meaty right now. Having said that, I’m still enjoying the odd match or two here and there on The Texas Chain Saw Massacre; it’s a lot more fun than I was expecting.

I’m also playing through a bonafide Xbox classic (apologies, Nintendo fans), and that’s Conker: Live and Reloaded. I’ve got such great memories of diving into the multiplayer levels and slashing the heads off those dastardly Tediz (using bots, of course, I had no friends). Finally, though I haven’t started yet, I’m tempted to play through Alan Wake Remastered and Control again ahead of Alan Wake 2 in October. We’ll see what happens with Starfield first.

Have a great weekend!
