Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (May 18-19)

Welcome to the weekend! There's plenty to enjoy on Xbox over the two days including the recent Starfield update, new Xbox Game Pass titles, a selection of Free Play Days offerings, and over 500 generous deals on the Xbox Store!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

Hmm, what to play this weekend? Well, Killing Floor 2 is currently 95% off on the Xbox Store and it's even part of Xbox Free Play Days right now, so that's definitely tempting me. I don't know anything about it, but it's worth a try!

Sorry to be boring, but the rest of my time will probably be spent with TopSpin 2K25 and Baldur's Gate 3 once again over the next couple of days. The exception might be the first Hellblade, which I need to finish before next week!

Have a good weekend, everyone.

It’s no easy task, prying me away from Hades 2 right now, but I’ve found myself vibing with Starfield again. That 60FPS mode is pretty darned great, not perfect, but good enough to get me exploring the galaxy again. That said, it’s still not the most interesting of games though, but I’m having fun for the time being.

Another game I’ve found myself plugging away at is Chants Of Sennaar. It’s this pretty puzzler that’s unlike anything I’ve played before. Basically, it’s like being really bad at speaking the local language and trying to piece together words to understand what everyone is saying. Then you solve puzzles and crack on with whatever you’re cracking on with throughout. It’s a newbie on Game Pass and I’m glad I checked it out. ‘Tis good fun!

Oh, and I've just bought this retro-looking indie game called Crow Country (which is hear is really cool), so I'll dabble in a bit of that too.

Anyhoo, happy gaming!
