Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (May 7-8)

Welcome to the weekend! There's plenty of stuff to check out on Xbox over the next few days, including the new release of Evil Dead: The Game, more Xbox Game Pass titles, three Free Play Days titles, and the massive set of sales!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

I'll tell you what I found on Xbox Game Pass thanks to Microsoft Rewards earlier this week - a game called Mighty Goose. It's a Run & Gun shooter that I fully anticipated I'd be playing for a couple of minutes just to complete the punch card and then move on, but found myself pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed what it has to offer. I'm not really a Run & Gun fan, but I'm definitely going to be playing more of Mighty Goose over the weekend.

Elsewhere, I'm planning to jump back into Forza Horizon 5 this weekend to complete the Microsoft Rewards punch card for that game, as well as just make some general progress and maybe play some of The Eliminator.

That's about it for me I think! Have a good weekend, folks.

Evil Dead: The Game is the order of the weekend for me, so I'll be digging into this asymmetric horror title to see what's what. After having a good time with Friday the 13th a few years ago, I've got high hopes that Evil Dead can deliver some of the same thrills, potentially with less bugs to boot. Expect some impressions of this one on the site real soon.

Other than that, I've had an odd itch to go back and play some Killing Floor 2, so I may well go and scratch that itch. This zombie-slaying co-op game is a hell of a lot of fun with friends, and I highly recommend it for fans of anything horde-like!

Have a great weekend guys.
