What Are You Playing This Weekend?

Almost always, the weekend is the best for nostalgia trips.

Something I’ll be checking out over the weekend is the beta for Kartrider: Drift, the sequel to the Korean Mario Kart-esque MMO. I remember a few Counter-Strike friends getting hooked on Kartrider, having discovered the game because they’d also gotten hooked on PangYa!, the over-the-top Korean golfing MMO.

KartRider isn’t really like Mario Kart – that’s just the easiest way to describe it. There’s actually a little more in common with fighting games, especially with the defensive item usage. The drifting mechanics aren’t as sticky as Mario Kart either, and the sense of scale between the karts and the tracks gives the game an extra dimension of speed.

KartRider‘s cool, so I’m keen to see how the sequel is shaping up. Beyond that, I’ll be smashing out more drafts in Gwent, which is probably the best CCG I’ve played on phones. Until Legends of Runeterra drops next year, anyway.

What are you playing this weekend?


  • Started Kingdom Come: Deliverance last weekend so I’ll probably keep plugging away at that. It’s not bad so far, but geez it doesn’t really move along too quickly, at least early in the game. Hopefully it picks up the pace later.

  • I bought Celeste on the Nintendo e-shop sale i was worried i’d hate it but i cannot put it down. I am not usually a ‘tough platformer’ kinda guy but its fantastic.

    Also want to start Control. I bought it the day it came out but waited for the bugs on the Xbox One to be fixed…

  • Dragon Age: Origins (which I’m playing for the first time – I’ve only ever played Inquisition before). I finished the main game last weekend, and now I’ve started Awakenings, which is really great. Especially for an expansion.

  • Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order
    Fallout 4 (Making and Testing my Mods)
    My Time in Portia (From Humble Monthly)(I like it, it is cute)
    and maybe something else depending on the remaining games from Humble Monthly
