Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (May 4-5)

Welcome to the weekend, and happy Star Wars Day if you're celebrating it! There's lots to enjoy on Xbox over the next two days, including more Xbox Game Pass additions, some Free Play Days titles and 200+ new Xbox Store discounts.

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

Well, considering it's May the 4th, I may dig back into LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens today. I recently picked up the big official guide book for it, so although I finished the main game almost a decade ago, I'm eager to grab all the collectibles and get a 100% completition for the first time in my history with LEGO titles. Wish me luck!

Aside from that, it's probably going to be more TopSpin 2K25. I'm really addicted to that game at the moment, and I'm spreading my time across the decent career mode and the online World Tour mode. I do still think it needs more content at some point in the future, but these two modes should keep me busy in the meantime.

Have a good weekend, folks!

I’ve got some gaming homework to do this weekend. My plan is to crack on with Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice before Ninja theory drops one of the most anticipated titles of the year - in my opinion. It’s already installed, I’ve just got to find time, sit down and get stuck in. Something I should have done years ago, if I’m being honest. But with less than three weeks to go before Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, I’m more than happy to have the time-pressure as my excuse to finally dive in.

Besides Hellblade, I’ve actually picked up a TCG. I know it’s not Xbox related but I’ve fallen head first into the world of Disney Lorcana. Heck, I even attended my first ever Lorcana night at my local hobby store - which was fun! I got thrashed 0-2 each game I played, but I learned a lot and enjoyed myself.

Hope you have a lovely weekend, folks!
