Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (March 11-12)

Welcome to another March weekend! There's plenty to keep you busy on Xbox over the next couple of days, including a few new Xbox Game Pass additions, four great Free Play Days titles, a massive set of Xbox deals with over 500 games on sale, and the arrival of the surprise Resident Evil 4 remake demo earlier this week!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

Most of my focus right now is on the release of WWE 2K23 next week, so I might dip back into WWE 2K22 in anticipation over the weekend. A quick playthrough of MyGM sounds like a good idea for a lazy Sunday!

I also picked up LEGO CITY Undercover recently which I'm hoping to spend some time with in the near future. I've played it before and consider it one of the best LEGO games, so I'd like to give it another shot on Xbox this time.

For those wondering, I did enjoy Diablo 3: Eternal Collection on Xbox Free Play Days last week, although I didn't get to play as much as I'd have liked. Fingers crossed it finds its way to Xbox Game Pass before the end of the year...

Have a good weekend, folks.

I'm still plugging away at Mafia 2: Definitive Edition after picking it up for dirt cheap on sale the other week. So far it's been really good fun and the storyline is thoroughly engaging. I wish I'd played this earlier!

Other than that, I'm yet to properly dig into Halo Infinite Season 3, so I'll definitely be putting a bit of time aside this weekend to try out all the new content 343 has delivered. Squad up, Spartans!

Have a good weekend, all.

Hello. This weekend I'm gonna be blasting away at a few bits and pieces for review, so that'll be taking up most of my gaming time. However, I will 100% be putting aside a little quality me time to dig into Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin (a game I picked up on release and totally forgot I owned!), as well as finally getting around to wrapping up the Series X version of the Dead Space remake, which is just incredible really, innit.

Have a good one!

This weekend I'll be jumping back into Halo Infinite to try out Season 3 of the multiplayer. It's been a long wait, so I'm glad it's finally here. So far, I'm quite impressed - the bandit weapon is a nice addition to the Spartan loadout and the new maps have also been a blast.

Apart from this, I'm also returning to Destiny 2. I've been far less consistent with this one over the years. I did complete the main game at launch but never really gave the expansions a chance, so I'm now aiming to work my way up to the Witch Queen and the latest release Lightfall.

Happy gaming, everyone!

Hey folks, this weekend I’m going to put the majority of my focus into Eastward. I picked it as my third game I’d like to 100% this year, so wish me luck! Outside of the quest for completion, I’m going to hop back into Halo Infinite’s Season 3 update. I recently uploaded my initial hands-on impressions to our YouTube (share some love on the vid, pls, my poor, poor ego).

Finally, I bought 2005’s Resident Evil 4 because it was on sale for £6-ish. I wanted to see what the fuss was about before I tried out the Resident Evil 4 Remake demo.

Have a lovely weekend!
