Week 10! What are we going to do to celebrate the tenth consecutive week of our longest running feature? We’re going to do the exact same thing we’ve done on the previous nine weeks, that’s what. If you’re only tuning in for the first time this week then let us give you a run-down of what happens: each and every Friday (except last week… that was a Saturday) the Pure PlayStation team gathers together to let you know what we’ll be playing over the weekend. As always, we encourage you to join in with your planned weekend antics down in the comments.
There’s a big Japanese games sale taking place on the European PS Store over the next two weeks. It’s already after making an entire twenty vanish from my wallet in the name of Dark Souls 2 and that’s exactly what I’ll be playing this weekend. I started From Software’s series way back when the Black Phantom Edition of Demon’s Souls hit Irish shores. I purchased Dark Souls and Bloodborne on day one. Yet somehow I’ve neglected playing Dark Souls 2 and 3. Wish me luck for this weekend – I’m definitely going to need it.
My weekend will be spent getting back into Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The new content in the latest update has been enough to get me to dust off my copy and make a bit of time for Drake’s last adventure. I’ll probably end up getting annoyed and quitting to go back to the single player – those trophies won’t collect themselves!
In addition to the aforementioned, I’m still working my way through The Witcher 3, Fallout 4 and The Division. Three RPGs and not enough time. First-world problems, right?
It looks like I’m going to be playing a lot of Battlefield 4 this weekend. I’ve turned my sister over to Battlefield after years of being a Call of Duty fan, so we’ll be playing the online suite while passing the controller after every death. Yeah, we’re kicking it ‘old-skool’. It’s been a long time since I’ve played Battlefield and it’s just as awesome and frustrating as it ever was. The tanks, planes, and choppers make for absolute carnage and a great atmosphere, but half the time is still spent getting killed by someone who’s gone prone hidden near an objective. Which is all part of the game I suppose, however it’s still a lot of fun to play an FPS with the immense freedom you get from BF 4.
Conor is Pure PlayStation’s resident Irishman. Naturally that means he’s constantly slurring his words and turning up stinking of Guiness with a potato in his pocket. It’s not all bad though, because Conor is also a PlayStation nut. When he’s not doing his best Father Jack impression (Father Ted, watch it) he’s got a DualShock 4 in his hand and a Vita in the other. Yeah, we don’t know how he manages it either.
