It’s the weekend and it’s time to relax and play a video game or two.
Some of us, especially me, are not playing anything this weekend because the PC is still sick. Or so. The beautiful motherboard light is orange and blinking slowly and won’t turn on. So either my RAM broke, the power button magically broke, or the PSU wore out. I always thought the PSU either failed or just works, but what do I know about the inner workings of computers? Nothing at all. I do know how to turn one on though.
Other members of the VG247 team plan to get their game this weekend while spending time off screen. Here’s what’s going on:
Connor Makar, Staff Writer – Warframe
This weekend I’m afraid to report that again, war frame sank his fangs into me. I can’t help it, it’s the perfect game to just boot up and lose a few hours. I’m hoping this time around to finally cross a few long-term goals off my list, including finally getting the illusory wolf sled… wouldn’t that be nice.
That’s kind of the problem when you’re the live service type I guess. I seem to keep bouncing around the same 5-6 games. I’ll burn out on one, then I’ll just remember another one I haven’t touched in a while and jump right back to it.
With Destiny 2 getting a new update later this month, I’m confident that this will be the next big one, which means I should probably make sure I’m sufficiently prepared for it. I promise I’ll try to do some chores too, believe me.
Dom Peppiatt, Features Editor – Elden Ring
No, you’re a year behind everyone else. After flashing my way through Bloodborne (everybody hail the threaded stick!) and dipping my toe into Dark Souls to celebrate the annual Return to Lordran event, I finally decided to bite the big golden orb and to boot elden ring.
They were fine; it is sublime. I don’t think I’m as excited about the open world as the world in general, but I really enjoy the way the world reacts to you, the bizarre lore that underpins it all, and the way that you can create your own challenge by picking at places you really shouldn’t until you’re at least a few levels stronger.
But my weekend will not only be clouded and grateful. On Saturday night I head to Shepherd’s Bush to see Dance Gavin Dance live (finally) – a band I’ve followed for almost a decade and are doing a show in my hometown. The joy! The carnage! The nonsense! So I’m looking forward to jumping around in the crowd and yelling along to lyrics like “endorphin orphan morphing, lemon cheese alike” or “clip-clop, clip-clop horse comes in and beats up your parents”… while I think about that Horse that came in and beat me up in Elden Ring. Post-hardcore and video games – finally together.
Kelsey Raynor, Guides Author – Arcade Bound!
I’m meeting up with a friend this weekend who I don’t see often, which I’m really excited about. They’re also a big fan of gaming, so let’s actually go to the arcades! That means we’ll inevitably be spending most of our time on OutRun 2 SP or Crazy Taxi.
On top of that, I’ll probably force her to play Borderlands 2 with me and continue my endless Civilization 6 campaign when she goes home. I’m currently playing as Scotland and in the midst of a war with a random city-state that I’m losing so wish me luck.
That’s pretty much us. What about you? What are you playing this weekend?
