We're having another quiet one on the notE3 front, though we'll be back into it next week with streams including Ubisoft and Devolver Digital blasting their games about on the weekend.
What are you playing this weekend? Here's what we're clicking on!
I'm looking forward to idly plonking down seaside villages in Townscaper on one screen while an undemanding film plays on the other. Such lovely little villages. The obtuse combination of blocks that spawns a crane was a big surprise to me so I wonder what else I've not yet seen.
Animal Crossing got its big summer update yesterday, so I'm going to be spending my weekend dive-bombing into its oceans and snorkelling my way around to try and find my fav AC character, Pascal. I might also carry on my sealife adventure in Beyond Blue on PC if I manage to tear myself away, as I've been looking forward to this big whale 'em up ever since I first played it at PAX last year.
Last weekend I didn't play much of Desperados 3, because I am still silly. This weekend I will actually be less silly.
I've finished Dog Murderer Simulator 2020 so will continue my journey through my PC preview build of Death Stranding. It baffles and beguiles in equal measure, but man, if those desolate hills aren't a chill place to escape to after all this *gestures to general surroundings*
Well, Hades has released its final major update before full release, so that's my weekend gone already.
I will attempt not to play more Shipbreaker and probably fail. I have not yet died, or even damaged a major component, and I am proud of having taken apart my first Gecko with very little waste. Perhaps I will resume my campaign of piracy in Distant Worlds, or continue with my happy little Ostriv hamlet. I also have two more episodes of Dark Matter to watch, having foolishly put off the third and best season for far too long. Zoie Palmer is criminally overlooked.
But you, dearest reader, what are you playing?
