What are we all playing this weekend?

We have less than a week until the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee long weekend, so don’t forget to book your pets to be dyed red, white and blue before it’s over. be too late. Every grooming parlor will be filled with patriotic puppies and cats. Don’t forget to brew a giant pot of Coronation Chicken (or, like me, Coronation Tofu) to keep you going through the coming week of endless festivities and forced celebrations. If you get tired and that arm waving the flag starts to sag, you’ll be in on it. But first, what are you playing this weekend? Here’s what we’re clicking on!

I’m at the start of what promises to be an awful cold, and things are spinning around in my head and colliding in ways that don’t make sense. I think Norco has vowel sounds similar to “Morbing”, as in “It’s Morbing time”, then I spent several manic seconds trying to come up with a joke like “It’s Norbing time!!!” like a baby trying to force the square peg through the round hole.

This weekend, I will play against Norco.

I am setting up a new working PC. I know I don’t have as many games and software installed as I do, but for the life I can’t remember what was on the old PC. I guess that shows how non-essential all of this was. Although I remember at one point some weird open source software that is so essential to my daily computing that I don’t even consider it software, just an external piece of a thought process. And when that happens, I hope I can remember his name.

I’m going on vacation with my family next week, but I’ll take my laptop to continue with Age Of Empires IV and Old World. I hope to find some time to dig into Hardspace: Shipbreaker and maybe try out Floppy Knights on Game Pass as well. Other than that, I’m going to eat ice cream and sit on a deck chair with a straw hat. Plus my laptop, of course.

Another weekend, another badminton tournament. More bananas, more sweat. Maybe this time tuna pasta and Lucozade. The people I’m going with aren’t massively into games, but they do play Apex Legends here and there, so we could all have a few games after the tournament. I’ll fix my sore legs with a little judgment when I get back on Sunday too.

Grow fat from strength, Hayden.

As much as I would love to continue with V Rising, I know deep down that I won’t have much time for games. With Kenobi, Stranger Things and the premiere of Exandria Unlimited: Calamity to watch, I’m going to spend the weekend drowning in #content. I recently downloaded Destiny 2 and may spend some time going through the tutorial again, but the story wants me to bounce back pretty quickly.

A friend wants me to play co-op Sniper Elite 5 with him. Since it’s on Game Pass, I agreed, on the condition that if any of us are offered the opportunity to perform a non-lethal takedown on a literal Nazi, we decline.

I’m still on a big strategy spree right now, and after trying out a bunch of different games last weekend, I finally settled on XCOM: Chimera Squad. I’m having fun so far! The big slow-motion breach sections are my favorite, and I especially like zapping bods from afar with my little drone buddy. He’s a keeper, that one.

I downloaded Destiny 2 again. The reason I downloaded Destiny 2 again is because I heard someone say the words “Destiny 2” on a podcast and got such a serious Pavlovian response that scared me a little and I had to sit down. I have so many games to finish. I shouldn’t waste my time creating a new character in Destiny 2. Please help me. Please. I beg you.

I recently launched a V Rising multiplayer game with a few family members, so I’ll probably be spending a lot of my game time on that this weekend, sinking my little fangs into bears and nuns. I also saw that my beloved Rocket Bot Royale got an update, and you can now effectively set up a weapon loadout for yourself at the start of each match, which really shakes up the game.

I had never really thought about playing video games on vacation before, but that was before Animal Crossing: New Horizons became the first game to convince me to play every day. Of course, after two years, I have extracted almost every drop of pleasure from island life on Bæover Bay; but like a splinter under my skin is the only solitary work of art that I still need to complete my museum. I just can’t face the thought of little prick Redd finally showing up with him now only for me to miss him. So my Switch will accompany me on my getaways this week; and, since that’s the case, I might as well spend an evening with a few titles from my obsessively large library of murder mystery visual novels. I mean, they’re basically beach reads if you think about it.


But you, dear reader, what are you playing this weekend?
