Given that most of my weekend will be occupied with moving - or facilitating the move of my partner into my place - it only seemed appropriate to find a shot of the best item from Metal Gear Solid 5.
Boxes. Moving boxes. A whole lot of them. That'll be my game this weekend, real life Tetris. Throwing out cardboard boxes, unpacking other cardboard boxes, cleaning, moving a bed and just generally shifting shit about the house.
Not particularly exciting. But practical! And it will save both me and my partner literally hundreds of dollars a week because rents in this state are top-notch fucking bonkers. Don't even ask how much.
Should things actually calm down and I get time to game, I've got three things in mind:
- Destiny: Because I've racked up something stupid like 80 strange coins over the last fortnight. Xur sold nothing but garbage last week if you were a Titan, and if worst comes to worst this week I'll just buy exotic engrams and crush them for the shards. I'm almost 380, which is nice since I'm looking forward to Wrath of the Machine.
- Chroma Squad: the officially licensed Power Rangers RPG! It's jolly good fun so far.
- Final Fantasy 15: Keen to see how it runs on the PS4 Pro and how much oomph you get if you're just playing at 1080p.
I also picked up Redout over the Steam sale, which totally nails the sense of speed. I don't know whether I like it more than Formula Fusion at this stage - the way FF lets you upgrade different parts of the ship is really neat - but FF is still in Early Acccess, so there's that. The new cockpit mode looks cool though.
What are you playing this weekend?
