What are you playing this weekend?

Dusting off my adventure games skills and trying Curse of Monkey Island.

Roguing toward my first "win" in Dead Cells, courtesy of Xbox Game Pass (PC).

Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory is out now on the Epic Games store. Gonna give that a shot, used to love that game, back in the day.

I’ve been playing a bit of Jedi: Fallen Order. I’ve been digging it and got to the point where the story is pushing me along.

Might squeeze in some Red Dead Redemption 2 as well. I’ve gotten back to it recently. Meeting a lot of strange strangers.

Total War: Three Kingdoms
It's gorgeous, and there's a lot going on in the strategy/diplomacy system. Now if only I could figure out what I'm doing.

Tetris 99
Stream sniping, because Invictus doesn't kick my butt enough already.

Titanfall 2
Ironically, since I played it for the first time on PC earlier this year, I didn't check out the multiplayer until they gave it away with Playstation Plus.

I've been playing Forgotton (sic) Anne, which I think is a fantastic game. How come it has gone unnoticed since its release last year? Could it be because of its ridiculous title? In case you know nothing about the game, it's a 2D puzzle platformer with some dialogue options that looks just like a Studio Ghibli movie, so that alone should be reason enough to check it out (provided you like anime, of course). It is lots of fun and visually stunning, and I think more people should play it, so do yourself a favor and do so!

A lot of PUBG. Got a stream going on Mixer. Going on air tonight at around CEST +1 11 PM.

Playing on Xbox One. Come by the stream if you wanna hang out and watch some aggressive duo plays.

I got through Neocab, and I am pretty sure it is going on my GOTY list.

Oh, I have it and love it. And yes! It feels like a bit of Miyazaki and Tezuka that is simply magic.

I'm so glad to hear this! It really is magical. I am about to start the third act, so I don't have much left to do, but I am really loving the story. It truly is like watching a Miyazaki movie full of quirky, whimsical characters, and I can't wait to see how it all ends!

I'll probably be splitting my time between Yakuza 0 and Mass Effect: Andromeda.

I'll be primarily working on Monster Hunter: World, and maybe some Battlefield 1.

I've been playing The Surge 2. Feels pretty good. It has some of the things I didn't appreciate in the first but I'm enjoying the level designs.

Trails in Cold Steel 2Continued pretty hard 38 hours in. Rean and the gang go weapon shopping and continues to ignore his classmates feelings.

Plan for this weekend: More Dragon's Crown (Vita), some Wild ARMS 2 (PS1), and top it off with some Monster Hunter World Iceborne (PS4).

Looks like I'll be playing Resogun with my sister and Nioh by myself. Also, I might start Man of Medan in online co-op mode with my sis as well.

For me, since the Yule Festival has begun, it'll be plenty of Lord of the Rings Online, as well as some Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor and still trying to pass my flight test for Air Hauler 2. Probably also some Strike Fighers 2 and Destiny 2.

I think I will try to knock out Eliza this weekend.

I’m going to play some more Titanfall 2 campaign (I think 3 chapters ), try the turn based mod for Pathfinder Kingmaker - Below the Stolen Lands, and probably some Automachef.

I will mostly be playing the 5 year olds birthday party this weekend, I think it’s in the survival horror genre. The graphics are quite garish too having installed the patch to my house last night. To regain sanity hopefully it’ll be some slay the spire tonight.

Might give Read Dead Online a try

Nioh

Mostly NG+ and warming up my hype meter for Nioh 2.

I highly recommend going for a 'good karma' run, in order to get the best ending. It's a bit of work, but it's so much more satisfying. Best of luck!

I've been enjoying all the games on the shiny new pc, but depending how I feel It might be lay in bed and play switch kind of weekend.

I have got to finish Spiderman this weekend. After that, I think I'll try out Warhammer 2. I hear they greatly reduced the time it takes to end a turn.

I did my best, parcels were passed and statues of a musical nature were played. Might od on left over cake with my slay the spire now.

Stepped up my Divinity Original Sin campaign since I kind of want to start with the CRPG Club for their next game. I've beaten Braccus Rex and boy, it was a tough one.

I got a new PC during black friday week (yep, that's a week now), so I'm kind of all over the place, playing 5 year old games on ultra setting
Played a tiny bit of: Tekken 7 (I'm terrible at these games, it's more of a nostalgia thing), FIFA 20 (because my son loves watching me play it), Rocket League (same reason, although I'm playing this game much less than I used to), Forza Horizon 4 (this has to be one of if not THE best car game I've ever played).

Most of all, I'm playing good ol' Heroes of the Storm because it's still amazing and because my friends play it and Fire Pro Wrestling World, because with 1200+ hours in, this is my version of GWJ Podcast EU IV

It ended up being an all-multiplayer weekend, which I wasn't expecting. Tetris 99 and Titanfall 2. The new team mode in Tetris 99 is surprisingly hard. Feels like people are getting scary attack multipliers out of nowhere.

Out of curiosity, I have most of the big names in that genre to complete. I've dabbled in all, but haven't serious committed to any. I'm curious as to whether anyone has recommendations for the order of the following:

Nioh
Dark Souls
Bloodborne
Sekiro

Any thoughts?

I'd probably suggest:
Nioh
Sekiro
Bloodborne
Dark Souls

Nioh feels incredibly sloppy to control after a From Software game. I tried going back to it at some point after playing a lot of Bloodborne and it just felt... bad. And then I'd play the rest in order of decreasing speed / forgiveness of combat. Sekiro is very fast and aggressive, Bloodborne is kinda fast and somewhat aggressive, and then Souls is slower and more methodical.

I dropped like 20 hours into Dragon Quest Builders 2.

Not quite sure how that happened, lol.

I have a few new-to-me games installed and ready to play (Monster Hunter World, Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II and Rise of the Tomb Raider), but I just can't bring myself to play any of them. And I've been really keen on Monster Hunter for a while now - the only reason I hadn't bought it day one was because I had a baby and it's not the sort of game you can just put down for an hour at a moments notice. Now our routine is kind of sorted and I saw it at a good price, so I bought it. And yet, I can't seem to find the interest or motivation, even though I know I'd love it.

Instead, I am starting a new Animal Crossing: New Leaf. The gaming equivalent of comfort food, I guess.
