Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (June 29-30)

Welcome to the weekend! If you're looking for things to do on Xbox over the next few days, we've got a bunch of new Xbox Game Pass additions, more Free Play Days offers, and a whole bunch of great sales on the Xbox Store!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

I haven't played much lately because of a growing Euro 2024 obsession, so my backlog's getting bigger! That said, I'm probably going to spend most of my time dipping back into Forza Horizon 4, as I'm very much in the mood following the news we've seen about it this week. It's still my favourite Horizon game to date for sure!

Elsewhere, I may have a couple of games to review ahead of their releases in July, so I won't divulge any information for now. I've also been playing a lot of Pro Evolution Soccer 5 for the original Xbox (via Xbox 360 backwards compatibility) in recent weeks, and let me tell you, that game is still one of the best football titles ever made!

Have a good weekend, folks.

I don’t know why I’ve decided this is a good idea, but I’ve picked up Elden Ring again. It’s safe to say I’m one of those guys who, instead of parries, blocks, or dodges, commits wholeheartedly to pressing RB when the enemy is mid-one-tap-swing. Yeah, I’m pants at the game, but I’m trying! I did beat Rennala the other night, so... progress!

Inevitably, I’m going to need a break from the constant “You Died” screen, so I’ve returned to Psychonauts 2 after a significant ghosting of the game in recent years. This is largely due to Nintendo Life’s Zion Grassl’s recent visit to see the Double Fine studio. Now we’re both watching the PsychoOdyssey documentary and playing through the Psychonauts games. It’s all good fun at Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp!

Anyhoo, best of luck to me and happy gaming everyone!
