Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (September 4-5)

Welcome to the weekend! As usual, there's plenty to check out on Xbox this weekend, including a fresh batch of Xbox Game Pass additions, a wide array of Xbox sales and the free-to-play release of popular racer Asphalt 9: Legends!

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

This weekend is going to be pretty quiet for me because I'm on holiday / vacation next week, but I'm hoping to spend any Xbox time with the brilliant Psychonauts 2. Work has been busy recently and I haven't had much chance to play it, but given the incredible reception it's been getting, I definitely want to sink many hours into it ASAP.

I've also been enjoying going back through this week's new release of Golf Club: Wasteland, which is a unique little indie I highly recommend trying if you like the sound of it from our review, and Asphalt 9: Legends made its free-to-play debut on Xbox as well this past Tuesday, so that'll be going into the download queue as well.

Have a good weekend, folks!

After 100%ing Psychonauts 2 this week, I'm going to slow things down a bit with a few smaller games. The main one is going to be Sonic Colors: Ultimate, as I've got early access through the deluxe edition. I've heard nothing but good things, so will be grinding and dashing my way through tons of rings this weekend.

I also want to check out a few indies. On my agenda is Kitaria Fables, which looking at Push Square's review, sounds pretty enjoyable. I'm also going to spend some time with Crown Trick ahead of its Xbox Game Pass launch next week, so will more than likely share some thoughts with you all!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Hello. This weekend I’m going to be pretty busy with lots of different bits and pieces but I’m 100% going to putting aside a little bit of Xbox time to give The Medium another blast. The game’s release on PS5 has reminded me that I jumped into it when it first released, was enjoying it, but got sidetracked by other things and ended up forgetting to return.

Beyond this, I’ve picked up Madden 22 and am itching to get my franchise started as soon as I possibly can, I need to get at least some time in on it before NBA 2K22 arrives and devours the rest of my life.

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