What are you playing this weekend?

Not enough days on weekends. Two is not enough. Okay, sure, Friday night is important, so maybe 2.5 days on the weekend can be considered. Still, it’s short, and there never seems to be enough time to do what you want before work starts again.

But time is what you create. We plan to use some time over the weekend to play games.

Over the next few days, we plan to delve into the backlog of RPG games to try and get someone into the game and enjoy playing a alcoholic and amnesiac detective while playing some high-risk and high-reward games.

That’s what we’re going to play this weekend.

Dom Peppiatt, Featured Editor – Disco Elysium, Spelunky 2

It’s been a long week and I’ve gotten used to my new role at VG247 and struggled to stay awake as I (stupidly) tried to dry out for a month to give my liver a rest after Christmas excess. What better way to relax and get rid of my nuts by acting than playing? Disco Elysium? I could be a rabid communist cop preaching the apocalypse, investigating what seemed like a small hole at the center of reality, while freely guzzling whatever booze I managed to get my hands on magpies from the poor streets. martinez. Ok!

I play when I’m not pretending to be an absolute disaster for humanity Spelunking 2 Join my non-gaming buddies as it’s one of the incredible additions to Xbox Game Pass this week. I introduced it to her last night, and after about 45 minutes of trying—and failing miserably—to pass the first level, which she called an exit, we went to play something less stressful: Peggle 2. Well, we thought it would be a little less stressful, but she ended up typing me a word, and I can’t bring myself to type here… let’s see if the weekend gets a little better, okay?

Dorrani Williams, Video Producer – Escape from Tarkov

I will play this weekend Escape from Tarkov. I’ve never been in the mood to play EFT, but now I’m looking for some high-risk, high-reward games. One of the most satisfying feelings is getting into a budget-loaded raid and killing a player who came in with all the best gear. It will get your adrenaline pumping.

There’s really nothing like Escape from Tarkov, but it’s not for everyone – the skill cap is very high, new players get on badly, and you spend more time managing gear than actually playing the game and real weapons Processing time also has a steeper learning curve. But it would be fun if you could ignore those things and take the time to learn and understand the game.

Also, as usual, I will play Apex Legends. I’m in the Diamond tier now because the season is coming to an end, and I want to make a final effort for the Master tier. Wish me luck!

James Billcliffe, Guide Editor – One Stupid Mass RPG

Right now, I have tons of pots boiling over the range of Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and PC.

On PS5, the main game I’m dabbling in is Horizon: Zero Dawn Getting ready for the Forbidden City next month, but I got the updated version too death stranding, final fantasy 7 and Jedi: Fallen Order, along with the rest Ratchet and Clank: Rift compete for my attention.

Then on Xbox, like I said last week, I add the DLC to mass effect trilogy I’ve never played what was marked as an absolute must.and always playable Forza Horizon and FIFA 22 Ready to fill any gaps.

But then it’s over Metroid Fear – An equally awesome and incredibly frustrating game – threatening to become elusive, unable to return with each passing day.

> Still, I installed the highly rated indie game here east on my computer. Pray that I will see the light soon.

Sherif Saed, Staff Writer – God of War (PC)

I had a great time on the PC version God of War 2018. As you’ve probably seen from our tech review, this is a pretty solid port that delivers most of what you’d expect, even if it misses some key elements and ends up looking no better than PS4/PS5 nice.

Still, the major framerate boost, DLSS support, and sharper overall visuals got me hooked on this game again. I’m almost done with the main story, but I want to do some cleanup this weekend. Most of the land in the Nine Lakes has appeared, and I want to clear all remaining quests and pick up any collectibles I missed there.

I still have some Realm Tears and other odds and ends to deal with before the final push. When I originally played the game on PS4, I only had two Valkyrie battles left, so I wanted to get them all done this time as well.

In addition to allowing me to spend more time with the game’s combat, this playthrough has given me a deeper understanding of the story’s narrative and its layout, especially as a Norse mythology fan.

Stephany Nunneley, News Editor – God of War (PC), Pokemon Snap, and probably others

I don’t have a PS4, so I’ve never played God of War (2018). Thankfully, Sony decided to put it on PC, so brought it to Steam, and I’m going to try it out over the weekend. I said give it a try because my partner is also a huge God of War fan and we’ve both played every other game in the series so he wants to play too. I can let him try it first. Depends if I feel charitable (wink).

i didn’t finish potion craft, I played a bit on vacation. So, I’ll probably jump back sometime in the weekend.

As I shared with you before, my mom is totally addicted to Pokemon Go and Pokemon. She quickly becomes an expert on which type works best with another, and what you have.Since she loves Pokemon so much and she hasn’t really played any video games since she tried Pitfall and Frogger on my dad’s Atari, I’m going to lend her my Switch and pick up a copy Pokemon Snapshot for her. I thought it would be a good introduction to modern video games, plus it’s a Pokemon game. I’ll probably show her how to play it and how to use the controller in a few hours, but it’ll probably be fun for both of us. I’m going to turn her into a gamer!

Tom Orry, Editor-in-Chief – New(ish) Mortal Kombat Movie

I can’t write about Wordle every week, I thought to myself before thinking I saw last year’s Mortal Kombat movie earlier last week. To my surprise, it really wasn’t that bad, but it wasn’t that good either.

To me, this all feels a bit like a modern Marvel movie full of blood. A group of superhumans team up to take on a group of superhuman villains. The biggest surprise was that there was no real tournament, although it was mentioned every five minutes. Kano steals the show and is by far the most interesting character, although that’s probably because the others are pretty dull outside of their abilities.

There’s enough winks and nods to fans (or just casual players of the game) without going overboard, but the whole thing ended in such a weak way that I’m really shocked it’s over. That’s fine when a movie sets a sequel, but it’s like you might expect the first hour of a 10-episode Netflix show to end.

All in all, this movie is good. 5 sawed in half / 5 sawed in half.
