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.
We sometimes link to online retail stores. If you buy something from our links, we may make a small commission which goes towards keeping the lights on and coffee in the pot.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
