What Are You Playing This Weekend?

As some of you might know, I'm in the US right now. So the games I would have traditionally given a go over the weekend will go untouched, because you don't bring a massive PC or console with you on international trips.

But one thing I did bring was my partner's 3DS, and a certain present that I got for Christmas.

That present was, as you can no doubt guess, Pokemon Moon. I mentioned in my favourite games of the year that I was waiting to get some time with latest game in the series, and as soon as I got a few spare hours (thanks, long-haul flights) I immediately fell into a familiar routine.

I love grinding the start of Pokemon games.

Case in point: I've got a full party, but I haven't ventured beyond Route 2. I've evolved an Abra from level 5 into a formidable Kadabra. I'm working my way on a Pichu. My starter Rowlet (which I've nicknamed Browlet, because I'm mature) is around level 15. I found a Magnemite along the way who is up to level 13, and I've got a Slowpoke who is at the same level.

On top of that, I've also fallen in love with feeding Grimer. He's so happy. He looks like the Cookie Monster.

Besides that, I've been working my way through Motorsport Manager on Android. I played a strange amount of Formula 1 manager games as a kid (it was on a demo disc, I think) and have always had a little soft spot for those types of games.

What are you playing this weekend?

    I'm planning on finishing Orwell! Also, if I'm honest, continuing to sink too much time into Mini Metro on my phone :D

    Going to try to finish the DLC maps of Vermintide on the highest difficulty: Cataclysm.

    Get to NG+ on FF15 maybe some more Shiny hunting on Moon. Want that Toxapex ;)

    Darksiders 2 now that I've finally progressed past the place I lost my save
    Maybe a bit more of the Alan wake specials

      I keep looking at DS2 installed on Steam, I seem to remember getting a few hours in last time and drifting away from it. I really should revisit it now that I have a much beefier PC, the framerate should be rock solid now.

    Will probably jump between Mad Max, Doom and Rise of the Tomb Raider.

    Also need to finish Blood and Wine. I don't wanna though, the thought of no more Witcher makes me sad. I'm not sure I'm ready to live in that world.

    I just picked up Watch_Dogs 2 yesterday and really enjoying it so far, pretty sure I will binge on that for most of the weekend.

      I was playing a bit of that before I flew out. It's ... I'll keep playing. That's all I can say at this point.

      Me too, bought it about a week ago. Wanted to complete the first one before I start on WD2 though, so I'm in the middle of that right now. Currently doing the "alone" digital trips. Goddamn they're a pain in the arse.

        I didn't actually mind the first one (despite all the flak it gets) I ended up getting the San Fran Edition from EB for like $57 of WD2.

    Diablo 3 - did the Anniversary dungeon with a fresh WD for the Butcher pet - one-shotting everything, Diablo included, which reminded me how ridiculous my terribly geared main WD was - he's running T10 with a couple of 2pc set bonuses and key legendaries. Might try and put together a proper build for him.
    FFXV - finished Costemark Tower, and looking to start the endgame dungeons if I get time.
    Otherwise, I'm planning to finally get to Last Guardian.

    And this is all assuming my PS4's HDD upgrade goes smoothly... *fingers crossed*

    I have got the last two bosses left in Lords of The Fallen. Sometimes I think I can finish it this weekend but then deep down I know I am kidding myself.

    So when I rage quit Lords of The Fallen, I will play Wolfenstein: The New Order and Hitman.

    Switching between Mad Max on PS4 & Knights of Pen and Paper +1 on my phone.

    Gonna have a go at painting my hero mini for d&d. kind of terrified because I don't want to fuck up. Also bought Watchdogs 2 since it was $60 on xbone digital store so I might give that a shot.

    My current favourite thing - Borderlands 2 :)

    ... I'll be on that one for a while.

    Literally just finished Rise of The Tomb Raider on PS4 in 4K..daylight - gaming on holidays whilst my family are out, what a treat. Will probably check Day of the Tentacle Remastered for something different, bit of Battlefield and thinking of picking up Dishonored 2.

    Just bought Afterbirth+, interested to see what awaits me there. I know the internet is a bit pushy about it but I don't care what they have to say.

    Other than that I'll be checking out the Diablo anniversary stuff across various Blizzard games.
