Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (Nov 14th)

Welcome to the weekend! The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S have officially arrived, so there's plenty to be playing over the next few days including over 30 next-gen launch games, a massive batch of new Xbox Game Pass titles, and of course - a library of over 3000 backwards compatible games across three generations of Xbox!

Here's what we're playing over the next couple of days:

What aren't I playing this weekend? There's not enough time in the day to get to everything I want to try, but I'm very eager to play some Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4, Planet Coaster: Console Edition, Dirt 5, Gears Tactics and as many other optimised launch titles as I can for my Xbox Series X.

And those are just the next-gen games! I'll also be dipping into backwards compatibility with the likes of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 and Battletoads, and I'm also really excited by how smooth Just Cause 3 (finally) runs on the system - it's like playing a brand-new game! I'll definitely be spending some time with that one...

Have a good weekend, folks!

I'm currently in the process of moving, so if I do get around to playing anything over the next few days it likely won't be on an Xbox because I've had to pack everything up. Fortunately, I've still got access to a laptop and Xbox's PC library, so...I guess it's game on!

I'll probably be enjoying more of the same - Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Forza Horizon 4 and Sea of Thieves. Heck, maybe even Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition! I look forward to next month when Cyberpunk 2077 arrives and I can finally sit down with my Xbox Series X and have a proper gaming session. I should probably add Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered to that to-do list as well.

Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
