Welcome to another weekend! The next couple of days are dominated by E3 2021, of course, including Xbox and Bethesda's massive E3 2021 showcase on Sunday, but there's still plenty of other goodness to check out on Xbox including a batch of new Xbox Game Pass and Free Play Days titles, along with the huge Xbox E3 2021 sale!
Here's what we’re jumping into over the weekend:

It's E3 2021 weekend, so you're not going to find me playing too many games over the next couple of days, although I am very keen to play more of Wreckfest's recent Xbox Series X 'upgrade', along with Dragon Quest XI S which isn't typically my type of game, but thanks to Xbox Game Pass I've been really enjoying it recent weeks.
When I'm not busy covering the news for E3 though, I'm going to be diverting the majority of my attention to the start of Euro 2020, which kicked off last night. Wales are starting their campaign in the tournament today, England are playing tomorrow, and I'm going to fill in the gaps by playing the official competition inside eFootball PES 2021!
That's it for me... have a good weekend, and we'll see you for Xbox's big E3 event this Sunday.

Well, it's E3, so you probably won't find me playing much, but I will be squeezing in some things between conferences. Mostly, I'll be sticking with CrossCode, an Xbox Game Pass title I've become enamoured with. It's a weird hybrid of Sword Art Online and Zelda, but works so well. It also has a beautiful art style that makes every frame a stunner.
As for everything else, I'm going to be a bit of a traitor and play on my (new!) Game Boy Advance SP. I picked one up in a local retro gaming store with Banjo Pilot and The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap. It set me back a bit, but I've always wanted to play Banjo Pilot as its the only game in the franchise I've never played, and Zelda is an all-time favourite. Getting my Rare fix in some way, at least.
Enjoy the E3 weekend, everyone!
