What are we all playing this weekend?

Happy Bandcamp Friday, something I didn’t know existed until two weeks ago when Alice0 mentioned it. But that sounds good! Celebrate by buying music from small artists, even if that music has nothing to do with video games. Am I allowed to promote non-gaming stuff? Hmm. Not sure. We’ll see if a game sniper (no-scope, natch) knocked me out by the end of this article or not. In the meantime, here are the games we’re playing this weekend!

I know it’s probably amazing to hear myself say this, but I haven’t played the Young Poirot detective game yet, a situation that surely needs to be addressed. Plus, I enjoy New World, which I play entirely on my own as a whimsical pirate duelist.

I’m not sure if my brain is up to par this weekend, but the new Outer Wilds expansion is hard to resist. Mainly because the sooner I play, the less I will hear about surprises from people who marvel at them.

This weekend, I finish Deathloop. I don’t know if you’ve heard it, but it’s quite decent computer game.

No more Halo Infinite for me this beautiful weekend. Big Team Battle has landed as well, which should mean classic 12v12 carnage. Hoo boy, what a treat.

After only a few weeks at RPS, I need a vacation just to get away from this horrible lot. This means no PC (and unfortunately no New World), so I’ll be relying on my Nintendo Switch to make it through the week. I should really go back and finish Monster Hunter Rise, but I think I’ll be spending my time on Game Dev Tycoon instead. Playing Startup Panic as part of Steam Next Fest (which features some awesome demos) rekindled a spark of business simulation that I haven’t been able to shake since.

Imogen is on vacation.

I’m working on one last Minecraft world before the Caves and Cliffs Part 2 update. Although as usual I play it incorrectly away from exploring, rather building, mining mining or manufacturing anything.

ActRaiser came out the same year I was born, what is it?

Living man, there are too many great video games I want to play right now, but I’ll probably continue my journey with Sable and ActRaiser Renaissance this weekend (with my morning dose of Dorfromantik on the side, of course).

In what I’m sure is a fairly familiar story to many, for the first time in many months, I’ve started a new Valheim game with the family. It took a little while to get back to the nitty-gritty, but now we’re steadily moving forward into the Bronze Age, and I’ve also leveled an entire (albeit very small) section of the Black Forest near l Appearance as a reward for the Gray Dwarf attacks that undermined my early attempts at building houses. I now refer to my ax only by its real name, “Conflict Escalation”.

In a rare burst of focus on one game, I actually finished the main story of Life Is Strange: True Colors in time to grab the hype for the Wavelengths DLC released on Thursday. This bonus chapter sounds like the most fan-serviced part of an already very fanservicey game, but since I am absolutely one of the fans benefitting from this service, I’m not going to pretend I’m not excited to play it. Then, if time permits, I will hopefully return to The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, which I was really in until True Colors came along and monopolized my full attention.

But you, dear reader, what are you playing this we-BLAT! BLAT!
