Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (June 1-2)

Welcome to the first weekend of June! There's plenty to enjoy on Xbox over the next couple of days, including a bunch of recent Xbox Game Pass titles, some Free Play Days offerings, and lots of great deals on the Xbox Store!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

It's all about Baldur's Gate 3 for me at the moment. I started getting back into it properly again last weekend, and now I'm hooked and really looking forward to the adventure ahead. It's one of those games that I wouldn't usually be enticed by, but BG3 feels like it's in a league of its own... a truly special game that I'm going to savour!

Elsewhere, my Football Manager addiction has kicked back in again - so if I suddenly disappear from Pure Xbox, you'll know why! It's the kind of game that I could play for 24 hours straight without barely noticing the time...

Have a good weekend, folks!

This weekend I’m planning on revisiting the Gears 5 campaign with some friends (if I can wrangle any of ‘em up). I just think now might be the time to…y’know, remind myself of some things. But mainly because I’ve been craving a blasting locust to bits gnasher in hand. Might even take Gears of War: Ultimate Edition for a spin on the ASUS ROG Ally too. Craig just wants his Gears fix I think.

Outside of this I’ll no doubt spend some time sweating it in XDefiant casual lobbies. The achievements were fairly easy to get so far. The only two I’m missing now are the level 50 ones, then I’ll have another cheeky 1000 gamerscore banked. Nice!

And finally, when I’m not feeling all ‘shooty-shooty’ I’ll be tucking into the retro spooky vibes of Crow Country. I blame PJ for this one, he talked it up and now I’m having a good time with it. Your fault PJ, your fault.

Happy gaming, folks!
