Sometimes you just want a couple of days inside to chill, have a good sleep in and unwind. And also blow a hell of a lot of stuff up virtually, which this weekend just became uncannily suited for.

A major content update was pushed out for ULTRAKILL this week, adding a new location, new secret level and interestingly, new difficulty levels. I’m pretty fine with the challenge of ULTRAKILL as is, but if you’re someone who just wanted a bit more time, or if accessibility was a concern, there’s now a Harmless and Lenient option, which is great to see.

A whole new texture pack has been included as well, which should be a fun thing to explore. Plus, in case anyone’s forgotten, the original DOOM level is a custom map in ULTRAKILL:

How can you not want to play this?

Beyond that, I’m looking forward to some friends, some recharging, and a bit more Monster Hunter: Rise. I’ve got a new SN Pro controller to test out, so that should go perfectly with that.

What are you playing this weekend?


  • D&D, actually! The grand finale to the last year’s campaign.
    Hopefully some Sea of Thieves with the wife and brother. New Season fresh off the… calendar.
    And of course, the wonderful new Binding of Isaac expansion needs some love, too.

    It’s a good time to be alive!

  • Yakuza 3. If anyone else is going to do the remasters, I found an amazing tip for the pool. Aim with your controller, then when you press the button to do the shot, use your mouse for the drawing back and hitting. Theres an issue with the remasters where if you’re using any type of controller, it’ll just send the ball off in random directions.

    Likely the new FFXIV MSQ from patch 5.5. Already did Diamond Weapon and the finale of the Nier raid, which was absolutely fantastic.

  • I decided to download Conan Exiles for PC (and went nuts with mods)
    so that (single player at the moment),
    Assassins Creed Valhalla
    Call of Duty WW2 on PS4

  • Not going to have much time this weekend so gaming will be limited

    Likely squeeze a few days of Ancestors in, need to back fill some mutations now that I have worked out the mechanics better

    Also grabbed a SD card for the switch finally so some Diablo is on the cards. Likey also push through another few levels of Trine 3

  • Voxel Tycoon for me. Early access game, seems like a cross between Transport Tycoon and Factorio.

    Fun so far, the emphasis is really on the industry side of things. Its bare bones in how it guides the player as well, so after a brief tutorial (can really run through it in about 2 minutes) you’re on your own.

    And there seems to be plenty to unpack and learn as well. I think I’ll be learning with this one for a while. With no hand holding, I’m already on my third restart as I learn new things.
