With that I ask: what will YOU be playing this weekend?

I’m pretty sure I know what I’ll be playing, for better or worse.

Please be safe out there, friends. Cheers. <3

  1. Ah, I love it when you get a game like that. One that makes you want to forego sleep just so you can enjoy more of it. I was like that with Final Fantasy XIV back in the early days, though I’ve fallen off that train (well, the MMO/multiplayer train in general) pretty hard now! I have still been known to stay up very late playing an RPG I’m particularly enamoured with though…

    This weekend I will be… hmm. Not sure actually! Hopefully I will have finished Project Zero 5 this evening as I want to write about it today. I will likely record some videos of Atari 8-bit and ST games as well as my weekly racing game, Warriors and New Game Plus videos, but for “pure pleasure”? I haven’t decided yet. I’m weighing up whether to get ahead of the game for the features I intend to run in January by starting something completely new, or delve into some Sonic titles I didn’t have time to cover during my Sonic month a while back.
