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

Welcome to the weekend! We're spoilt for choice on Xbox over the next few days thanks to some major recent releases (including a bunch of Game Pass titles), three Free Play Days offerings and more fantastic deals on the Xbox Store!

Here's what we're playing this weekend:

There's so much I want to play this weekend! NHL 24 and EA Sports FC 24 are constantly in my rotation right now, Hogwarts Legacy has been calling to me again, Rock Band 4 dominated my Friday night last week so who knows what this weekend will bring, I'm in the mood for Hi-Fi RUSH as well... if only there was more time in the day.

I'm also properly addicted to Disney Speedstorm again since its free-to-play release. I think it's the ability to easily connect my Xbox and Nintendo Switch accounts that makes it so tempting... I often start the day with a few races in Speedstorm on Switch, and then keep going on Xbox Series X in the evening.

Obviously there's Forza Motorsport as well - I'm holding off on that one until it hits Game Pass!

Have a good weekend, folks.

Craig Reid, Video Producer

Ahoy folks! I’m looking forward to a bit of a chilled out weekend this time around. I’d like to achievement hunt on Assassin’s Creed Mirage - which is the first AC game I’ve liked since Brotherhood. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the condensed nature of it, the city of Baghdad and also that I’m a master pickpocketer now!

Outside of this, I’ll be lining up on the multiplayer grid for some S-rated safety driving in Forza Motorsport. It may feel a bit short on content but the game is absolutely solid and I’m loving it. I’d also like to complete Cocoon because, well, it’s just sublime.

Anyhoo, happy gaming!
