What Are You Playing This Weekend?

By Sam Quirke, 5 months ago
It's a new month, and it's going to be another busy one for new releases. What will you be playing this weekend to start the month off right? DEAD OR ALIVE 6 just came out, and Tom Clancy's The Division 2 has an open beta ahead of release. We've had Trials Rising, DiRT Rally 2.0 and The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame all release this week as well.

I'm always tempted by the Trials games. Then I remember that I am terrible at them.I'm always tempted by the Trials games. Then I remember that I am terrible at them.

For me, I have just a few pesky Hidden Orbs to track down in Crackdown 3 before happily putting that game away for good (and probably cancelling the Game Pass – I got my £2 worth). To my shame I find myself addicted to Lightwood Games' continuous Pic a Pix Series output — there's something about Picross that just calms me down after a tough week. As such I will probably finish off Pic-a-Pix Pieces this weekend on the Vita, and likely pick up the new Pic-a-Pix Classic. Anything to distract me from life's more difficult questions, like "how terrible are the Pokémon Sword and Shield starters' evolutions going to be. When are they releasing? Will I have to buy a second Switch so my wife doesn't take all of my Switch time away?"

I'm also sorely tempted to pick up Jurassic World Evolution, which I have heard good things about. It's currently deeply discounted in the UK and EU PlayStation Stores. With such a huge backlog, I shouldn't... but...

Anyway, that's enough about me. I want to know what you're playing! Let me know in the comments, and Happy Friday!
