Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (July 8-9)

Welcome to the weekend! As usual, there's plenty to enjoy on Xbox over the next couple of days including a bunch of new Xbox Game Pass additions, four Free Play Days titles, and lots of great deals as part of this week's sales!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

It's going to be more AEW: Fight Forever for me this weekend, as I continue to grind the Road to Elite career mode and try to unlock more minigames in the process. The game definitely has room for improvement, but on the whole I'm really enjoying it so far - and the key thing is that the gameplay is particularly great!

I might also jump back into a couple of new Xbox Game Pass titles this weekend - Arcade Paradise and GTA 5. You don't need me to tell you anything about the latter, but Arcade Paradise is a fantastic little simulation game that gets addictive very quickly, so I definitely think it's worth a download if you like the sound of it.

Have a good weekend, folks!

Halo Infinite has made its way back into my rotation since the recent arrival of a proper ranking system, so, that's something I'll be dipping into this weekend. The new multiplayer maps and are pretty darn good too - I'm having lots of fun with Infinite at the moment and I'm happy to be plugging away at the new progression system!

Elsewhere, the only game I've picked up so far in Valve's Steam Summer Sale is Metro 2033 Redux, so I'm going to start a new playthrough of that, I reckon. It's one pound fifty in the sale right now which is a complete bargain, and if you're looking for some first-party titles to grab on Steam while you're at it, Xbox Game Studios has a nice selection on offer right now.

Enjoy your gaming this weekend, PXers!
