Valentine’s Day isn’t just one day this year. No, retailers are doing their best to spread it over the weekend, so screw it, we are too!
Whether you got a mountain of cards from secret admirers, or just one lonesome slapped together courtesy card from your mum, it doesn’t matter, because we here at Pure PlayStation love you. Just not enough to send you a card…
Here’s how we’re spending our Valentine’s weekend:
I’m sick again. Same shit, different weekend! I’ll be spending my weekend staring at my calendar, counting down the days until flu season is gone. When I’m not staring at the June and July, I’ll be playing some games. What games? I’ve no idea. I’ve struggled to stick to any one game recently. I’ve been playing GTA V, Saints Row 4, and Red Dead Redemption 2, so it’s likely it’ll be a rotation of those three.
Keen to platinum Yakuza 0 so I can move on with the series, but more likely to be in the man cave retreat with the PS3 having bought some ‘classics’ I never got around to. As if I don’t have enough to play, the hoarder in me couldn’t dismiss the chance to stack up on some more shelf real estate.
This weekend will mostly feature myself trying to get the Zombie Army 4: Dead War platinum trophy. I’m not sure I’ll be able to do so since there’s one for beating each level with a full team of four players. Plus, one for completing 144 waves of horde mode and I think I barely have half of that completed. I might also try starting Trover Saves the Universe.

I haven’t spent nearly enough time with Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as I would have liked. So if I get any spare time this weekend, I think I’ll bulldoze through the story, whilst humming the theme song incredibly badly to myself. Fly Away!
When I can pull myself away from my husbandly duties this holiday weekend, I’ll be continuing my journey through the wastelands of Mutant Year Zero via the DLC. It doesn’t reinvent the wheel and instead focuses on simply adding more of what made the main game so much fun to play. On the VR side of things, I’m still scavenging the city of New Orleans, looking for supplies and fresh zombie heads to cut off in The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners. I don’t know where I’m going to find the time, but I have to jump into Insomniac’s Stormland. The Oculus exclusive shooter is currently on sale and I just couldn’t pass it up. So far it’s pretty damn good.
Having properly enjoyed Darksiders Genesis (go read my review here!!) I’ll be mopping up the last few upgrades in order to become the most badass Horseman to have ever rode a horse. Once that’s done I plan on building a swimming pool and removing the ladders in The Sims 4 (is that still a thing?) and fingers crossed I finally get to DTF (down to Firewall Zero Hour) with my fellow PurePlaystationers.
After applying something called strategy, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a much easier hill to climb, and I am enjoying it a lot. When I don’t mind making a lot of noise around enemies, I can jump into Doom (1993). It’s still amazingly good after all these years, and it will give me my fix until Doom Eternal showers me in demon gore next month.
Having recently played Return of the Obra Dinn everything else seems to pale in comparison to what may be one of the most original games I’ve played in years. Thankfully I have Dreams so I’ll be spending the weekend playing around with it’s creation tools and hopefully quenching my thirst for unique experiences by losing myself in dream surfing.
I started another challenge mode run in Ratchet And Clank last night, so I guess I’ll be completing that. I’m also addicted to Puyo Puyo Tetris at the moment, therefore I will undoubtedly be shown up by digital competitors in that one.
