Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (February 4-5)

Welcome to the weekend! If you're looking for something to play on Xbox over the next few days, we've been treated to various new Xbox Game Pass titles this week including Age of Empires 2, we've got three Xbox Free Play Days additions that are live right now, and there are also various new deals live on the Xbox Store!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

Fraser Gilbert, Editor

I'm playing something I unfortunately can't talk about at the moment so, yeah... that's my weekend.

That said, if I do get any spare time around it, I'll be jumping back on Hi-Fi RUSH as part of the Pure Xbox Game Club for February 2023, which you should totally go and join on the Pure Xbox forums!

You know what I've also been playing lately? NHL 14 on Xbox 360 with custom music! What's alarming to me is that the game feels highly reminiscent of NHL 23 on Xbox Series X|S, despite the two titles being almost a decade apart...

Have a good weekend, folks!

Craig Reid, Video Producer

I’ve got SO many games in mind for my weekend playfest but I think I’ve whittled it down to just two… maybe three games. First one and my main focus is the rhythmic action Hi-Fi RUSH. I’m 6-7 hours in and loving every beat of it. Like Fraser mentioned, it's in the Pure Xbox Game Club for February 2023, so it’ll be cool to get involved in the PX Forums!

Elsewhere, I’ve just bagged myself the Ultimate Edition of Riders Republic which has been heavily discounted on Xbox this week along with numerous other Ubisoft games. To round it all up, I’d love to squad up with friends and really get into the thick of Battlefield 2042 now the classic classes have returned in the latest update. I’ve enjoyed what I've played so far, but it’s definitely an adjustment period.

Well, that’s me. Have a lovely weekend, folks!
