Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (September 18-19)

Welcome to the weekend! We've got a bunch of new Xbox Game Pass additions to check out over the next couple of days, along with three more Free Play Days titles, and of course, the Call of Duty: Vanguard Open Beta.

Here's what we’re jumping into over the next few days:

There are a couple of games I've been playing a lot recently, and I expect I'll be diving into them again over the weekend. The first is Forza Horizon 4, which has really dominated my focus in recent weeks as the hype builds for Forza Horizon 5 this November, particularly in terms of the battle royale style 'The Eliminator' mode.

Elsewhere, I've become totally hooked on Football Manager 2021: Xbox Edition. It's so good to have Football Manager on console again, and while the controls definitely aren't as good as using a PC and mouse, I'm looking forward to seeing how Football Manager 2022 will rectify this when it arrives on Game Pass this November.

That's about it for me, although I'll probably check out Judgment with Free Play Days as well.

Have a good one, folks!

After reviewing Lost Judgment, I'm still going to be diving back in to complete side quests, wrap up some achievements, and of course, play all those SEGA mini-games over and over again.

There are also so many new Xbox Game Pass titles I want to try out too. Flynn: Son of Crimson, I Am Fish and Aragami 2. It's a pretty varied handful, but hopefully I can blast through one or two of these over the weekend. It's a great time to be a Game Pass member.

Outside of the realm of Xbox, me and my partner are slowly making our way through WarioWare: Get It Together on Nintendo Switch. It's an absolute blast and is filled with addictive mini-games.

Have a good one, folks!

Hello. This weekend I’m going to be pretty busy with all sorts of really boring real-life stuff but, if I do manage to crowbar in a little bit of Xbox gaming time, I’ll be diving into some more of the wonderful Tales of Arise. I’ve only just started playing this one over the past few nights and I’ve genuinely been sucked right into its captivating story and excellent combat.

I’ve also got Tails of Iron, Eastward, Aragami 2 and Life Is Strange: True Colors on my immediate to-do list and a brand new MyTeam to get properly stuck into in NBA 2K22 at some point. Absolutely no backlog stress going on over here, no sir.

Have a good weekend, whatever you’re up to or playing!
