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

Welcome to the weekend! There's plenty to check out on Xbox over the next few days, including more Xbox Game Pass additions, three excellent Free Play Days titles, and over 600 games that are currently on sale on the Microsoft Store.

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

Fraser Gilbert, News Editor

Another weekend, another chance to hack into my backlog a bit! That said, I've definitely got my eye on Trek to Yomi with Xbox Game Pass, and perhaps I'll get a chance to try out Overcooked! All You Can Eat with Free Play Days.

eFootball PES 2021 is still my guilty pleasure at the moment, but I have to admit I'm playing it on PC due to the modding capabilities on there. It's a real shame that the series never received any kind of importing feature on Xbox (it did on PS4), and I also feel a similar way about custom music features in Xbox One, Series X and Series S games - they were removed after the Xbox 360 generation, and unfortunately have never properly returned.

Oh, and I want to get back into Fortnite and try the non-building mode, so that's on the download list too.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

Hello. This weekend I'm gonna be diving into both Trek to Yomi and Loot River on good old Game Pass, as well as continuing to support my seven year old son who has developed a terrible addiction to Descenders.

I've also just got back into Halo Infinite in time for season 2 kicking off so I expect I'll be getting my backside handed to me repeatedly in Last Spartan Standing over the next few days. Have a good weekend whatever you're up to or playing!
