Welcome to the weekend! The big release of this past week was Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, so a few of us might be playing that game this weekend, but there are also plenty of recent Xbox Game Pass titles, three more Free Play Days games, and a whole bunch of great deals to take advantage of on Xbox over the next couple of days.

What to play, what to play. I'm in that position right now where I'm desperately awaiting LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga but it's not here just yet, so I'm playing little bits of things in the meantime. Shredders is still getting my attention even though I've completed it, for example, and PGA Tour 2K21 is a game I keep going back to for a casual round of golf here and there. It's a great way to just kill 30 minutes or so.
To be honest, I'm probably going to spend most of my time with the Xbox Series X version of Grand Theft Auto V though. I haven't yet started the story again (I'm still making my way through the side missions all these years later), but GTA Online has been getting my attention a bit, and even though it annoys me in some ways, I'm having fun with it.
Have a good weekend, everyone!

I was considering finally picking up Far Cry 6 this weekend with its free trial/discount period, but then I remembered about Halo Infinite's campaign. I still haven't been back to clear the map and to be honest, I might get my Far Cry fix from there.
I'm also still chipping away at Gran Turismo 7 over there on PS5, although I have now finished that Cafe Menu list! There's still plenty to do though, and I'm using that to avoid the temptation to buy anything new this weekend... my backlog is pleased.
Have a fine weekend you lot!
