Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (October 22-23)

Welcome to the weekend! There's plenty to get stuck into over the next couple of days, including a bunch of new Xbox Game Pass additions, three more Free Play Days titles, the arrival of major releases such as Gotham Knights, the free-to-play release of The Sims 4, and a massive Shocktober Sale with over 600 games on offer this week!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

There are just too many games that I want to play right now. A Plague Tale: Requiem and Persona 5 Royal have jumped immediately onto the Xbox Game Pass wishlist after we gave both titles incredible reviews earlier this week, and I'll probably be starting the latter at some point this weekend. I've never played Persona before!

Another game that I've been testing out recently is Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, which has perhaps become a bit lost in the shuffle considering how busy a week it's been for new releases. It seems really good so far though, and hopefully I'll be able to share some thoughts on the game here at Pure Xbox sometime next week.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

I'm going to continue playing Amnesia: Rebirth this weekend after my review just went live; I've been enjoying it a lot and I might have to give the game's 'Adventure' mode a spin as well!

Sticking with the topic of horror, I may also see what Frictional Games' Soma looks like once I'm through with Amnesia. I've never played this one and judging by the reception it got when arriving on Xbox Game Pass last week, I probably should try it!

Have a good one, folks.
