Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (June 3-4)

Welcome to the first weekend of June! If you're looking for ways to keep busy on Xbox over the next couple of days, we've got a bunch of new Xbox Game Pass titles to check out, three more Free Play Days offerings, and a fantastic Family Time Sale on the Xbox Store - although keep in mind there's an even bigger sale happening next week!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

The only game that I definitely know I want to play this weekend is Street Fighter 6. I'm not a big fan of the fighting genre by any means, but SF6 caught my attention instantly, and the incredibly positive reviews have tempted me to get on board. It's going to require a lot of hand-holding, but hopefully the World Tour mode will help with that!

You know what else I'm planning to dip into? Let's Sing Queen. I know that's a bit of a strange one, but it's on sale for the first time in ages as part of the Xbox Family Time Sale, and I just can't resist belting out a few Queen tracks every now and again! I still think it's a lot of money for what it is, but I'm not sure I can resist picking it up...

Have a great weekend, folks.

I'll be busy wrapping up my top secret review of an upcoming Game Pass title this weekend - so be on the look out for that soon! Elsewhere, there are a few other games I'll be chipping away at over the next few days.

I just picked up Aliens: Fireteam Elite as part of the recent Super Saver Sale, so I'll be heading into some more of that this weekend. I really enjoyed it before it left Xbox Game Pass, so I thought it was worth adding to the digital library for £12 or so! Blasting away at Xenomorphs is just too much fun in this game.

Outside the world of Xbox, I might be playing a wee bit more PlayStation over the next few days. Sony has just unleashed a huge 'Days of Play' sale over there, so I think it's time to re-sub to PS Plus and tackle some of that library.

Enjoy your weekend, PXers!

Ahoy folks, this weekend I’ll be getting stuck into the dark and disturbed universe of Diablo IV. This time around I’m building a devastating, chonky, werebear druid.

Outside of my escapades across Sanctuary, I’m keen to check out Game Grumps’ new horror game, Homebody. I’m a long-time fan of the Grumps games, having dabbled in plenty of Dream Daddy (for roughly two years the Dream Daddy theme song was my ringtone!).

I’m also going for a little road trip this weekend, so best to pack my OLED Switch for the occasional Tears of the Kingdom session.

Happy gaming!

On my Xbox Series X, I'm working my way through Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. I'm not very far into it, but that's largely because I'm preparing to jet off to an unspecified location for an unspecified gaming event next week, so my spare time is rather limited at the moment! I've completed a few main missions and I'm slowly but surely building up Mother Base. I suspect this one will keep me occupied for a good few months!

It’s going to be all quiet on the Xbox front for me this weekend as I think that I am finally, finally nearing the end of Tears of the Kingdom on Switch. Of course, by “end” I am talking only about the story, which frankly means that I have only done like, what, 0.4% of what the game has to offer? Let’s get this one rounded up to a neat 0.5% so I can feel like a real #ProGamer.

I’m sorry Xbox, maybe I will return to you one day once Link stops consuming my every waking moment…
