Get the Fantas in the for the lads – it’s Friday! For most of us that means walking away from the day job, school, or college, and getting hunkered down for a weekend of gaming. It’s also bloody freezing outside, so that’s a great excuse to stay in and shut out the rest of the world.
Another great reason to stay in this weekend: new games and free trials galore! Here’s what the Pure PlayStation team is doing this weekend.
I’m on holiday! No more work for a week! Yippy-kay-yay! It means I get to spend the entire weekend at home playing games, writing about games, and dreaming about games. That last part isn’t a joke – I’ve genuinely had nightmares about Firewall Zero Hour. Speaking of which… As there will be an influx of new and inexperienced players due to the free trial weekend going on, I’ll be teaming up with my co-Pure PlayStationeer to boost my ego by shooting novices from scummy angles and hiding my jammers in the cruelest of places. When I’m not giving myself a not-needed ego boost, I’ll be working on some reviews for you to read.
I’ll be clearing up trophies in Detroit: Become Human for the platinum and playing a game for review. I may also dabble in a few short indie games I have in my backlog like Burly Men at Sea and Tacoma if I fancy a change of pace.
There’s a few free to play weekends tonight in Override and Jump Force which might get some attention. However, I will force myself not to play something new considering Jan 29th is suuuuuper close now.
I will be sliding from FIFA 18 to FIFA 19, and steering Coventry City to a Premier League win. Or more likely tackling myself out of each and every game. Those referees have it in for me, I tell you!
It’s a Firewall Zero Hour free weekend, so I will definitely make time to take some new kids under my wing, or shoot them in the back, depending which team they’re on. I’m also playing Genesis Alpha One for review, and I’ll probably drop a few more hours into that. The weather sucks here, so it’s a good excuse to stay in and bore the wife to death with video games.
I will be punching, kicking, and slicing more clothes off female shinobi as I finish up SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal for my review. So far, it’s actually more tame than the last game I played in the series. I would like to finally play the Resident Evil 2 demo. If I have extra time, I would like to participate in the trials of Override, Jump Force, and the demo of Eden-Tomorrow. It’s more than I can possibly accomplish this weekend, but that’s OK.
Having tried (and failed) to gain my VR legs I am determined to give it another go, so I plan to not run before I can very slowly crawl and start back on Beat Sabre (giving Creed a miss for the time being). I also need to finish off the last of the Spider-Man DLC, and my OCD won’t let my trophy percentage dip simply because I haven’t completed New Game +, so all in all that should take me right up to Monday.
So that’s what we’re doing this weekend. What are your plans for the weekend? Will you be dipping into any of the free trials that are going on, or will you be going back to an oldie that’s been sat in your backlog for so long it’s starting to physically rot? Head on down to the comments section below and let us know.
