Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (December 23-24)

The weekend is finally here, and for some of us, that might mean an extended weekend into Christmas Day and Boxing Day! Whatever the case may be, there's plenty to enjoy on Xbox over the next few days - maybe you could dip into some recent Xbox Game Pass titles or take advantage of the Xbox Countdown Sale before it ends.

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

It's Christmas weekend, and that means there's family to visit and not necessarily much time for gaming, but I do still plan to spend some time with Hi-Fi RUSH and Disney Speedstorm over the next few days, both of which I continue be hooked on. The latter works really effectively with cross-saving on Nintendo Switch as well.

I'm still dipping into Football Manager 2024 on PC Game Pass here and there (it might be the best FM of all time in my opinion), and hopefully I might get a chance to dig into the Xbox Game Pass backlog from this month at some point.

Have a good weekend, folks!

I’ve been feeling under the weather recently so I haven’t managed to play anything that requires too much thought. So this weekend I’ll most likely slay some holiday hellbeasts with a handful of thirsty gods in Hades. It’s genuinely such a top class game and I can’t believe it took me this long to get stuck in.

I also made a Christmas resolution to complete Final Fantasy IX before the year ends and I’m quickly running out of time, so I think I’ll play some of that too. Finally, I have family visiting this Christmas and my mum is obsessed with her Meta Quest II. I have one too, so we’ll probably buy a game to play co-op on. Any recommendations? I’m thinking of Arizona Sunshine 2.

Merry Pre-Christmas, folks!
