Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (June 22-23)

It's time for the weekend! We've got plenty to play on Xbox over the next two days including a few new Xbox Game Pass additions along with three more Free Play Days titles, and there are also hundreds of new deals on the Xbox Store!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

I haven't yet had a chance to play Still Wakes The Deep on Xbox Game Pass, so I feel like that's a good candidate for this weekend. Walking simulators can be a bit hit-and-miss with me, but everything I've seen of this game so far suggests I'll enjoy it, and our 8/10 review here at Pure Xbox suggests the same as well!

Elsewhere, I'm still enjoying the wonderfully clunky Police Simulator: Highway Patrol expansion, and I've also started re-downloading Starfield to check out some of the new Xbox mods that are now available. All I need is an arachnophobia mod, and then I'll be ready to put 100+ hours into the game...

Have a good weekend, folks!

This is the first weekend since being in Downtown LA for Summer Game Fest where I can slow down and just… play a game. Well, as I write this I’m re-installing Elden Ring on my Xbox Series X. I don’t have the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC, but it’s easy to get swept up in the hype, y’know?

Besides being the ‘hype-sheep’ I often find myself becoming when folks get excited, I’m also playing New Super Lucky’s Tale too. Honestly, it caught me off guard because I thought the game would be awful. It’s not bad at all!

Happy gaming, folks!
