It’s always a good weekend when you know you’re finally getting your last Pfizer shot. (For now, at least.) That always means you need a day or so to recover, which is where video games come in.

Some friends of mine have got me intrigued in Valorant again, and it’s been interesting seeing where Riot is headed with the latest maps. I still wish something like Counter-Strike would adopt a newer engine with some of the elements that Valorant has — hell, even just consistent 128-tick servers for matchmaking would be a good start.

There’s a couple of other things on my plate, although they’re all under embargo at this stage so I can’t say an awful lot. One of them is another Australian game, which is a plus, and another one is a very excellent indie title that will probably be my final review for Kotaku Australia. Which is a bit bittersweet, but also kind of fitting.

What are you playing this weekend?


  • Far Cry 6 and Genshin Impact it looks like.
    With some Lego Marvel, Ratchet & Clank and Kingdom Hearts III with the little fella.

  • My husband and I are playing NFS Heat together, having it on the TV at low volume so we can do that (one pair of headphones for the TV/Playstation) is actually a bonus because of the terrible music in the game, continuing to prove that I will never not miss NFSU2 or NFSMW which were incredible in every way including the soundtracks. For myself I’m finally going to play GTAV, just need to get a couple mods sorted out first.

  • Getting towards the end of my Saints-Row-a-thon with just Gat out of Hell and Agents of Mayhem to go. Alas, I’m lacking in people to do the coop achievements for 4 and GOoH with, particularly since I only play the uncensored version of 4.

    Other than that, not sure. I’ve been bouncing off various games all week. Maybe some Mary Skelter, or some Agony Unrated.
