What Are You Playing This Weekend? (November 5th)

Ollie Reynolds, personal editor

So first of all I’m done Bayonet 3. I found it… not great, personally. Not compared to the first two games, at least. Still, I’m grateful to have experienced it after such a long period of development, even if it didn’t quite live up to my expectations.

On to better things, then! You all know I love good horror games, right? Well, this weekend I will continue my reading of the wonderful Signalis. I’ve only put half an hour into it so far, but that small amount of time has already indicated that this is a very special game, so I’m extremely excited to dive back in.

Otherwise, that’s it! I could start a game of Resident Evil: Village in third person mode if I have time, though I’ll probably save that for another day.

This weekend, place in the Far West! I just started playing Red Dead Redemption 2 last week, and I can’t live without it. The most beautiful and realistic game I have EVER played. My favorite genre of games is open world, so I knew I would like this one, but I didn’t know I would like this very much. I haven’t found anything wrong so far. Rockstar is simply amazing at creating living worlds. Around every corner there is someone who needs saving or someone who wants to start a fight. I never run out of things to do either. Do missions, hunt bounties, play poker, go exploring on your horse, this world is MASSIVE (and I’ve only explored a very small part of the map so far)! It’s really rare that a game hooks me this much, but man, it’s magic when it does.

We’re fast approaching the Wii U’s 10th anniversary and in my current game, I seem to be the only person in the world using the console as anything other than a door stopper.

I have friends over this weekend, so it seems like the perfect time to party up and see the console really burn on all cylinders. Nintendo Land seems like the obvious place to start, but as a game I would describe as ‘Yes, I am fine‘ (paste this on your poster), I hope we move quickly to something better like Wii Sports Club Where Mario Party 8.

I played through Twilight Princess HD this week – a Zelda title that I still feel is horribly overrated – so I can go on for a bit, though truth be told, I might end up getting The Minish beanie on the fantastic Virtual Console and settle in to play much better Zelda game.

When it rains, it pours. I don’t have anything to play with NieR: Automata and Bayonetta 3 at the same time, but here I am surrounded by the brilliance of PlatinumGames and little time to fully appreciate both games before the inevitable November deluge begins with Harvestelleand Arkanoid: Eternal Battle already look at the Switch cartridge slot. Nor should I overlook the outstanding bug-fixed Prodeus, a game that restored my feverish love for the FPS genre. The game of the week is Sophstar. A shmup that does everything right and dictates how you play it based on your ship selection. Simple and complex in equal doses, do not hesitate.

I received a Steam Deck for my birthday!!! It’s like a Switch has a buff. So, I put it to good use and played the latest games, right? No, I played Fallout: New Vegas.

Game time has been scarce over the past week so this weekend I’ll probably get into Bayonetta 3 a bit more. I’m having a lot of fun, I just haven’t had time to really dig in! I would like to be as sure of myself and confident as Bayonetta…and everyone needs a Rodin in their life.

Otherwise, I don’t have any concrete plans apart from lots of cinema releases! I really want to try Signalis – I’m a scary cat, but pixel art horror looks like my jam. I also really want one Super Mario Odyssey play again, so maybe I’ll throw that. But I also want to play SNES games – I haven’t played anything old in a while and I miss that special feeling I get in a classic SNES game.

As always, thanks for reading! Be sure to leave us a comment below with your weekend game plans!
