I am yet to hear a Christmas song being played on the radio, but I’ve got a feeling that after this weekend that’s all set to change. So, now might be a good idea for us all to make the most of our unseasonal music before the repetition starts. Or perhaps we should all put our gaming headsets on and refuse to take them off until January…

Still, with so many gamers relying on an army of couriering Santas to deliver a certain box before the big day, maybe we’ll have more luck if we get fully into the Christmas spirit. That means baubles with your cheeri-hohohos, folks, and swapping Spidey’s red suit for another, albeit, less flattering one. Not to mention, being good between now and then.

But that last one is nigh on impossible, surely?

Anyway, that’s enough festive talk for one week. After all, this isn’t Pure Christmas! So, how about you share with us your plans for the weekend, and we do the same with you? Be warned, though – the term PS5 crops up quite a few times in the chatter below; let’s just say three of the team did unmentionable things to get themselves a PlayStation 5…

Chris Harding

This weekend I’ll be locked to my desk catching up on videos for our lovely channel (Check out Pure Play TV here – there’s even a rap about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla!) and playing some games for review. Thankfully, I’ve got some decent stuff on the backburner with Spider-Man: Miles Morales, as well as the family-friendly Lunch-a-palooza. If I can get inside my Quest, I’d love to shoot Jeremy a couple of times in Onward VR, and maybe, just maybe give that new Star Wars game a go, too.

Yasmine Hubbard

I feel like a big kid lost in a candy shop. Why? Because I finally got a PS5 yesterday! I don’t know what to play first. I could take Astro to the beach, catch some bad guys with Spiderman, or embark on a whole new adventure with Sackboy. Either way, my weekend will be filled with lots of gaming, and lack of sleep.

Stuart McLean

The weekend is finally here, and that means only one thing in Casa Del Stu – PS5. Other than moving for food or drink or the occasional poo, I don’t plan on moving for my gaming chair to the point that I plan to get my money’s worth from this weekend alone. Between reviews, Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Assassins Creed: Valhalla I have plenty to keep me occupied between now and the early hours of Monday morning.

Jeremy Peterson

I’m gonna spend the weekend finishing Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge on the Quest. Okay, it won’t take the weekend because it’s only a 4 hour game, but it’s a fun shooter so I’m gonna take my time and record some good video for the review. Hopefully I can pry Chris away from his video and husbandly duties long enough to play some Onward. When I’m not doing that, I’ll be scouring the internet for a way to scavenge my very own PS5 so I too can be one of the cool kids.

Jason Frye

When I’m not working on reviews, I’ll be splitting my time between Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and replaying God of War on New Game+. The latter is still such an excellent game and draws me into its polished world so easily.
I’ll also continue planning Black Friday purchases. Finding the best bargains and speculating about which games will make the cut based on potential price drops is always a game I enjoy playing.

Hannah Ellis

I have, unashamedly, restocked the PlayStation 4 backlog. So, my weekend will comprise of many installs and new starts. But it’s exciting to be experience something new for the first time – especially when I don’t have to depend on Yodel…
