There’s nothing better than a chilled weekend where you roll the dice and get completely screwed by RNG.

That’s the wonderful journey I’m going on this weekend, praying to RNGesus for the best cards possible in Hearthstone Battlegrounds. The auto battler mode has gone into early access as of yesterday, and it’s accessible on all devices, which is nice and convenient.

I’ve also been working my way through Observer on the Switch, a cyberpunk horror game that I drunkenly played through the opening of many moons ago and have been keen to return to ever since. It looks like absolute garbage in handheld mode, and the controls are still wonky, so I’m a little torn between whether I finish it on the Switch or just grab a copy for cheap on PC.

Observer Explores The Scary Side Of Cyberpunk

The image above is that of a woman trapped at the moment before her violent death, endlessly repeating the combination to a secret door she'll never reach. It's just one small sliver of the sci-fi mind-fuckery that awaits in the Rutger Hauer-voiced cyberpunk horror game Observer.

With any luck, I’ll also finish the Modern Warfare campaign. Thoughts about that next week, but it’s definitely the most interesting Modern Warfare campaign in recent times.

What are you playing this weekend?


  • I’m playing the moving game. It’s super grindy but hopefully will be completely conquered this Saturday, then finish up a few small side quests on Sunday.

  • Terraria on PS4 just got a big update, as well as an event with new mechanics. So I guess I’m dusting off my save file and … playing Terraria?! I can already feel the nostalgia vibes.

  • Finally finished off Spider Man last night, so I might go back for a bit of Dead Cells, as well as a bit of PES 2020 and Modern Warfare.

  • I wanna finish Red Dead 2 or Outer Worlds before Jedi: Fallen Order comes out. I probably won’t though. But I’ll be playing one of those and some Diablo 3.

  • For me I’m playing Luigi’s Mansion 3 this weekend as well as New Super Lucky’s Tale.
    I’ll get Mario and Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games for the Nintendo Switch next week before my father and I head off to Bendigo next weekend for the annual Bendigo Swap Meet as Christmas is arriving early as we know it.

  • The new ‘Professor Layton’ game (starring a new character whose name I forget) drops today so maybe that (though it is a touch pricey). And also Pro Evo 2020. And some Control, I think.

  • I’m playing the driver games
    …not the car chase ones
    …the reinstalling and configuring ones after Windows fell over from a RAID0 setup going kaput
