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

Welcome to the weekend! Cyberpunk 2077 is probably going to be taking up many Xbox fans' spare time over the next couple of days, but if you're not interested in that, we've also got a few new Xbox Game Pass releases, another batch of Free Play Days titles, and well over 400 deals included as part of this week's Xbox sales.

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

Is it time for me to finally dive into Cyberpunk 2077? Well, given that it has a free five-hour trial on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S now, I may as well give it a go. I've got more than enough Microsoft Rewards points to take advantage of its 50% Microsoft Store sale as well, so if I take a liking to it, I know what I'll be buying this weekend.

Aside from that, I could be playing one of a few games — Judgment, Rock Band 4, NHL 20, Hades and Mass Effect Legendary Edition are all in my rotation at the moment, so I'll see what takes my fancy over the next few days.

Have a great weekend, folks!

Well, look, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't going to spend quite a lot of my weekend playing a game that's exclusive to another platform, a game about giving great big robot monsters a good kicking while gliding round a very fancy-looking open world, but I will also be continuing my next-gen playthrough of Cyberpunk 2077 in order to see just how improved it is all the way through to the end.

I'll also be continuing to have loads of fun with Infernax, a fantastic indie Metroidvania that hit Game Pass this week and has been pushing all my old-school side-scroller buttons in just the right way. We've even got a little review of that one inbound over the weekend, we like it so much.

Have a good weekend whatever you're up to or playing out there!
