Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (February 18-19)

Welcome to the weekend! If you're looking for Xbox content to keep you busy over the next few days, we've had a bunch of new Xbox Game Pass titles this week, there are two fantastic Xbox Free Play Days additions, the XDefiant technical test is ongoing, and there are over 350 new deals on the Xbox Store as of this past Tuesday!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

To be fully transparent, I'm probably not going to be playing a lot this weekend due to matters relating to a recent loss in the family, so it's a struggle for me to fill this out! If I do get some spare time, I'll likely spend it with Hogwarts Legacy as I continue to progress through some side missions and just enjoy exploring the world around the castle.

That said, I did also buy AVICII Invector in the ID@Xbox Gaming Together Sale this week, and although I've only played a little bit so far, it seems really good! It reminds me a lot of another great music-based game called Aaero, which was given away as part of Xbox Games With Gold back in 2021. Definitely happy with that purchase.

Have a good weekend, everyone.

I'm playing something super top secret right now on Xbox, which I can't discuss just yet, so that'll likely take up most of my gaming this weekend. A busy one ahead!

However, if I can set a little bit of time aside I may also jump into the xDefiant 'tech test' to see what Ubisoft's upcoming shooter is all about. I'm actually up for something that plays more like a classic CoD game than where Activision's shooter has headed in recent years, so I'm definitely excited for this one if the team can nail it.

Have a great weekend, folks!
