The weekend is a sacred time, especially if it’s marking the beginning of a well-deserved break.

I’ve been staying with my parents for the last fortnight, helping them out while my Mum underwent (and recovered from) pretty serious surgery. On top of Xbox preorders dropping out of nowhere this week, and then PlayStation the week prior, it’s been a long couple of weeks.

So, I’m really looking forward to some time off. I’ll get precisely a week with my fiancee, which is nice because we don’t often get to take time off together.

The weekend really isn’t much of a time for video games, or at least not in my instance. I haven’t seen her in a while, so I imagine we’ll be out doing things — maybe hitting up the beach if it’s not too cold, enjoying some movies, going for a road trip, and just unwinding as much as possible for the mania that October and November will bring.

At some point, however, we’re gonna hit up a few board games. One of our friends is arranging a Twilight Imperium day, which seems funny to me, because everything I know about that game suggests that we will one million per cent not be finished in a single day. But we’ll probably be very tanked by the end of it.

At some point, I’ll want to finish one of the bush trips I was doing in Microsoft Flight Simulator — there’s something wonderfully cathartic about those. I’ve also got a couple of books to finish reading too, and I’m working my way through The Expanse again.

What are you playing this weekend?


  • Maybe some mount farming in FFXIV. I’ve got PSO2 Episode 4 story to finish before Episode 5 comes out next week. It is truly weird, since 4 takes place on an alternative Earth. Sega came under some flack since they censored the story, cutting out one scene and modifying another.

    However they included references to the cut scene in later dialogue which makes it sound much much more suspect then the original scene was.

    Other than that… not sure really. Probably more SAO:AL at least. I got my weeklies done in RE2 Remake already.

    • Im not a big fan of the storymode… i mean its great that they got rid of the tedious matter board system… but by reducing it to cut scenes n boss fights only reaaaaaallllyyyy removed a lot of the context by encountering the events as a map mission.

      Like literally from the 1st story section when you encounter Matoi… I dont think anyone realised thats actually a timeline change of the tutorial mission where you go right instead of left at the fork as it is just a cut scene where u see Matoi

  • Still playing Dead Island definitive edition… trying to finish my Logan run

    I was considering playing d3 again but after loosing interest about a month in on last season I think im done with the game… theres just no incentive to keep going for me since i am technically farming the same gears again until i hit that dmg cap of getting ohko and the monsters become dmg spongy till u get that ancient or whatever the next stage of rareness of legendary/set gears are. Add to the fact each character build is dictated by the sets so unless i find the set interesting or matching my style its not really fun anymore.. and even them some build are more opimised than others..
