Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (September 25-26)

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, the FIFA 22 free trial with EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and of course, the Halo Infinite Technical Preview for those who were invited to it.

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

There are three games that I'm going to be devoting my attention to this weekend. The first is FIFA 22, as I'm still making my way through the 10-hour EA Play and Game Pass Ultimate trial that was made available earlier this week. First impressions are that, although I'm typically more of a PES fan, I'm actually liking this one a lot so far.

Elsewhere, I've picked up a cheap copy of the first Judgment for Xbox Series X following its appearance in Free Play Days last week. I didn't think it'd be my type of game, but I ended up absolutely loving it and deciding that I absolutely had to have it. The joys of Free Play Days, eh? You got an unlikely sale out of me, SEGA.

And unsurprisingly, the final one is the Halo Infinite Technical Preview. I managed to play a few games of the multiplayer last night, and it's really, really good. Can't wait for the full release this December.

Have a good weekend, folks!

The games just aren't slowing down, are they? Despite everything coming out, I'm still chipping away at all the side content in Lost Judgment (there's a lot)! I spoke about it earlier this week, but the school section is essentially a game in itself and is taking up a ridiculous amount of time.

Outside of that, I'm going to jump into Diablo 2: Resurrected (server issues permitting), and maybe, just maybe, dive into Death Stranding: Director's Cut on my PS5. There's just so many games and so little time.

Have a good one, folks!

Hello. This weekend I’m going to be playing an absolute ton of FIFA 22. Well, ten hours to be more precise, as that’s all EA Play’s trial will allow for now but still, plenty of time to ascertain whether or not its improved over last year’s effort which, for me, felt a little bit lacking in the defensive department.

Elsewhere, I’ll be jumping into Sable on Xbox Game Pass. I played the demo of this one a few months back and absolutely loved the art style but didn’t quite get along with the generic fetch quests and oddly lethargic traversal on offer. Hopefully I’ll find much more to enjoy in the full release.

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