Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (March 25-26)

It's time for another busy weekend on Xbox! Yesterday's release of Resident Evil 4 might be taking up all your time over the next couple of days, but if not, you've got a new Xbox Game Pass arrival to enjoy, three impressive Free Play Days offerings, the Diablo 4 open beta, and over 500 Xbox Store deals to take advantage of!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

I'm still very much enjoying WWE 2K23 since its release earlier in March, so I'll be playing more of MyRise, MyGM, MyFaction and much more over the next couple of days. I might also spend some time with Marvel's Midnight Suns as part of Xbox Free Play Days - the game looks great, and this is the perfect chance to try it myself.

Oh, and I picked up Not for Broadcast following its release on Xbox earlier this week - it's a little known game, but I played the Steam demo a couple of years ago and ended up loving it, so when I saw it was coming to Xbox, it was pretty much a no-brainer. That's definitely going to be taking up some of my time this weekend.

Have a good weekend, folks.

This weekend I'll be mostly getting stuck into MLB The Show 23, which I'm adamant I'm going to stick with this year, and I'll also be diving into some more Valheim if I get the chance.

Of course, like most of the rest of you, I'll also be plugging away at Resident Evil 4 Remake. I've just finished up my third playthrough (hey, somebody had to do the guides) and it speaks volumes about how good it is that I'm itching to get started on a hardcore run to unlock the final few bits and pieces I haven't got yet. I'm never getting tired of this game.

Have a good one!

My Steam Deck should be here for the weekend, so a fair bit of my time is going to be spent testing out bits and pieces on Valve's handheld PC. I've already picked up the incredible Forza Horizon 4 on Steam - I'm ready for that one to take over my life again!

On Xbox, I'm playing a little bit of something I can't talk about just yet, and I'll probably be playing the Resi 4 demo over and over again until I can get my hands on the full game. Soon is the word on both of those, folks.

Have a jolly weekend!

Ahoy PX friends! Since our 10/10 review I’ve been non-stop with the Resident Evil 4 Remake. Looks like I'm heading towards my third completion of Leon’s rural retreat, so I thought I’d spice my gaming up this weekend by playing… Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, Resident Evil: Code Veronica X and Resident Evil 0.

Outside of my somewhat residence in the land of Evil, I’m going to make up for missing out last weekend by checking out Diablo IV. Who am I kidding? I’ll probably park my butt on my beanbag and play Resi 4.

Happy gaming!

This weekend is all about Resident Evil 4, baby. This is quite comfortably my most anticipated game of 2023, and from what I've played of it so far, it's definitely got the potential to be a Game of the Year contender. Then again, I've yet to play Dead Space, so we'll see...

I will say though, since I know the original RE4 so intimately, the changes applied to the remake are incredibly jarring (in a good way). What do you mean I have to put fuel in the lake boat? What is this madness? It's wonderful though, I love it.
