Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue Ninety Nine

Welcome to What Games Are You Playing This Weekend, our light-hearted feature where we talk about what games we'll be enjoying this weekend. This isn't all about us, though, as we'd love to hear from you in the comments below.

Now let's get into what games we'll be playing!

This weekend, I shall be revisiting some old-school original Xbox titles. Mainly because I've had the thing in pieces this week as the launch HDD decided to finally die after some 15 years. That's some hardcore build quality, right there. Anyway, she's back up and running now, so I think that aside from my usual foray through soccer games of varying quality levels - International Superstar Soccer 2 will be the starting point - I'll be rolling back the years with some third-person action. Jade Empire is calling out to me for some reason, and there's always a hankering for Jet Set Radio Future going on...

Of course, there's always Quantum Break to finish, as well...

I acquired Dark Souls III this week, so I'll be spending a lot of the weekend alternately "Praising the Sun" and swearing horribly as I struggle to get to grips with the mechanics again. So far I've taken out the first boss, and got 4 achievements, so I'm feeling pretty smug. I don't think it will last, however...

Other than that, I have an appointment with an APC in The Division's Incursion, which spent most of last night messing me and my team up. I'm also enjoying racing through the Porsche Expansion in Forza 6, so I'll try to get a few laps in over the weekend. There is an achievement for doing a lap of VIR in under 1:30, and so far, even in my F1 car, I can only do a 1:32, so I'll be trying to get that sorted.

I'm gonna check out Axiom Verge on the Vita. Excited to finally play it as I'm a big fan of Metroidvanias.

I will be playing more of Letter Quest: Grimm's Journey Remastered; a turn based RPG/word game which I am thoroughly enjoying (review to follow)! My addiction to The Binding of Isaac continues to hamper my social life and any downtime I have will most likely be spent scouring the basements of Isaac's world trying to defeat Mega Satan and collect all the possible items and endings before tackling the new expansion. All of this is, of course, just an excuse to further procrastinate on my completion of Far Cry 4, which I have promised to finish before purchasing any new full price titles as the easy access of digital titles on the Xbox One continues to be my financial downfall.

I'll be giving most of my attention to Bravely Second! I've been super excited for that game ever since its announcement.

Besides Bravely Second, I'll also play some more of Quantum Break, and check out the Windows 10 version I got with my digital pre-order.

Lastly, I'll also be playing some Epic Dumpster Bear, which I encourage all Wii U owners to look into because it is one of the most bizarre games ever.
