Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (February 12-13)

Welcome to the weekend! Well, it's time to finally check out CrossfireX on Xbox Game Pass over the next couple of days, and there are plenty of other new Game Pass releases at your disposal as well. Elsewhere, Free Play Days includes the excellent Riders Republic this week, and there are hundreds of deals on Xbox right now, too.

Here's what we're checking out this weekend:

I know exactly what I've got my eye on this weekend — Riders Republic. We gave it an "Excellent" 9/10 here at Pure Xbox when we reviewed it last year, but I wasn't the one who reviewed it, so I'm keen to find out what all the fuss is about. It's included with Free Play Days until late on Sunday night, so plenty of time to get properly stuck in.

What else am I playing at the moment? Not much, really — I'm putting most of my focus on Microsoft Rewards and Xbox Game Pass Quests for now, so I've been playing stuff like Steep and Aragami 2 lately to get some extra points. Quake is also my go-to for doing the new PC-based Quests, and with those now in the mix as well, I'm getting around 4.5k Microsoft Rewards points per-week at the moment!

Have a good weekend, everyone.
