Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (January 14-15)

Welcome to another 2023 weekend! It's been a fairly quiet week for Xbox outside of the Developer_Direct announcement, but we've still got a few new things to check out over the next few days, including a free demo for One Piece Odyssey, a free next-gen update for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, and another massive selection of sales!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

The game I'm trying to play the most at the moment is STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order on Xbox Game Pass, as I've never quite managed to finish it, and I want to get it wrapped up before Star Wars Jedi: Survivor arrives in March. The problem? I find it so creepy! I hate spiders in games, and Dathomir in particular is absolutely crawling with them. I'll get to the end eventually, but it's taking me longer than I'd like.

I also started playing Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice over the Christmas period (I know, I'm really late to the party with this one), and I've been having a brilliant time with it so far. It's the kind of game that benefits from full immersion and a great pair of headphones, so I'm so saving that one for the late nights when my fiancée has gone to bed.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

I decided to set myself a new year’s resolution to complete 12 games this year… like, all the achievements (something I rarely do). I’m hammering through my first choice Death’s Door and I believe I’m on track to bag my first 100% game of the year! Props to my fancy new Steam Deck and Xbox Cloud Gaming - It’s been super convenient and easy to jump back in whenever time allows!

Have a nice weekend, folks!
