What are you playing this weekend?

The weekend is finally here, which means you have nothing more important than playing some games and enjoying doing nothing.

At least, we’re not going to do too many other things.Sure, we play games for work all week, but sometimes that means we’re not playing what we want real Wanted to play, then it was late and we were tired so we had to put off playing something else.

Thankfully, the weekend is the antidote, and here’s what we plan to do over the next few days:


Connor Makar, Staff Writer – Battle Royale Weekend

This weekend, it was all about the battle royale for me.

I’m planning to start a whole bunch of them to make sure I’m fully catching up and understanding where they are. I especially like some of the less popular people who may have been unpopular in recent months.

Completely accurate battlefield It’s the one I’m particularly keen to dive into.


James Billcliffe, Guide Editor – Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD

I’m on vacation this week, so what better time to start another 100-hour RPG game that I’ll never be able to finish?

Loading on my Switch Lite (and for some reason no less than 3 main series of Pokemon games) is Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD.

My relationship with Final Fantasy is kind of weird because I love the world and the aesthetics, but have never really done a couple of them. What I did manage to get through (and really, really like) was Final Fantasy 15, which seemed like a real introduction to the series, so we’ll have to see how I deal with the more revered parts of the pantheon.

I’ve always felt like these big RPGs play nice on a handheld, where you can plug in and out, so who knows, I might even see the midpoint before it goes back into the drawer.


Kelsey Raynor, Guide Writer – Celeste

I had to delve into video game soundtracks this week, which made me want to revisit some games this week. Namely, Celeste.

I think I ended up listening to the soundtrack for most of my work this week, and when I bought it for my Switch a few months ago, I never spent as much time playing games as I liked. So, it doesn’t feel right not to spend more time on it.

Other than that, I plan to eat a lot of chicken dumplings.


So, this is us. What are your plans for this weekend? Planning to humiliate your pet like Tess did so many months ago? I hope not. It could be seen from her expression that she didn’t care too much. That, or she prefers the Xbox to the PlayStation.
