Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (March 5-6)

The weekend is here once again! We're still busy ploughing away at Elden Ring over the next couple of days, but we've also got a few new Xbox Game Pass titles to try, another batch of Free Play Days additions, and a large set of Xbox deals to take advantage of. To be honest, we're spoilt for choice with games at the moment!

Well, I'm taking a mini break from my job at Pure Xbox for the next week, so while I kick back and relax a little bit, I plan to spend plenty of time playing some games! The first one I'm hoping to try is Elden Ring. Sure, it's not typically my type of game (I've barely touched Dark Souls), but the intrigue has got to me, so let's see how it goes...

As for what else, I might be playing a couple of games I'm not allowed to talk about just yet, so those will certainly be keeping me busy, and I definitely would like to check out FAR: Changing Tides, which just launched on Xbox Game Pass a few days ago. The reviews have been great, so it's on my to-do list for the weekend if possible.

See you in a week, folks! Have a good one!

This weekend I'll be spending more time luxuriating in the wonders of Elden Ring, by which I mean getting absolutely battered into bits by the boss I'm currently trying to hold peace talks with. It's taking all my time up so far, this one, but it's hard to complain when it's probably the very best game Fromsoftware have served up so far.

Elsewhere, and if I can somehow eke out the time, I'll most likely also spend a part of my weekend getting to grips with some slick racing action in the other big game that's just released on another gaming platform.

Have a good weekend whatever you're up to or playing!
