Even though we were all pretty sad to see that Red Dead Redemption 2 was delayed this week, we are still going to keep practicing the lingo and anticipating a future where we kill varmints, make criminal types reach for the sky, and ride into the sunset after saving (or maybe robbing) a one-horse town.
We cannot spend all weekend becoming better cowpokes, so here is what we will be doing in between learning to lasso a calf and catching up on sleep.
I’ll be having a go with Alchemic Jousts this weekend for review, and after that I’m gonna download the NieR Automata DLC after being emotionally scarred by the base game.
I will be scaring the begeepers out of myself with some asymmetrical slasher goodness in the newly released Friday the 13th: the Game (review forth coming…if I survive). After that it will be some family screaming and arguing with 4 player split screen couch co-op racing in Mario Kart 8 deluxe. I can’t think of a better way to spend a memorial weekend.
Alien spiders!!! Yes, I’ll be once again diving into Farpoint’s co-op to fight against the onslaught of alien spiders. It’s good fun getting online with a mate – or even a stranger for that matter – and working in tandem for the good of humanity. Now if only that could happen in real life… When I’m not blasting alien fools with my sweet PSVR Aim rifle, I’ll be jamming out in Rock Band 4 to The Killers. My band’s name? The Thrillers. Yes, I know, I’m pathetic.
I have a little something for whatever mood strikes me. I will be spending some time exploring mental illness in The Town of Light. If it is too heavy, I will be taking a break with Torment: Tides of Numenera, which I have wanted to play after reading Dom’s original review. I will also be giving Overwatch another try, since there will be a free weekend event.
After finishing the Farpoint campaign, I’m gonna finally try to get into a co-op mission with Pure PlayStation czar Chris Harding. We can blissfully defend spider planet while we pretend to actually understand each others accents. Should be fun had by all. Also, in my downtime, I’m playing PS one classic Chrono Trigger on my Vita.
