I know I have been asking for a second summer, after Scotland had a glorious fortnight in June then gave up, but woof I did not expect this. Too hot! And when I have too little time to fully enjoy it. I should find a solution for that. In the meantime, what are you playing this weekend? Here's what we're clicking on!

Did you know Anthem is still online? I downloaded BioWare's doomed looter-shooter while poking around sci-fi/space games on Game Pass, and honestly expected to be greeted with an error message or endless loading spinner. Thought it was a mistake. Thought it might be a funny post. Instead, it's still around? You can play it? I'm trying playing it? It seems not good? But I like my exosuit?

I'm working this weekend, so much of my time will be spent writing Starfield guides. I'm trying to still make it feel as weekend-y as possible, though, so I'm playing D&D one evening and will also make sure to check out the Payday 3 open beta with some pals! Oh, also melting. It is too hot.

I was being fatuous about it last week but I do genuinely like Starfield. I've already found the secret lair of a Space Batman, rescued a stranded ship full of 200 year-olds, and won an argument against Adam Jensen's dad. Onwards!

At long last, I'm going to try that there Starfield. I'm hoping to get a reasonable chunk of it under my belt this weekend, to finally see what all the fuss is about, but if all the grey and beige end up making me do a hard NOPE out of it, I hope to fill the time with some lovely Trine 5.

Starfield. I'm playing Starfield. See that planet? You can go there. After you select it on a menu. And wait for a few loading screens. There's not much on it, mind. But that's OK. I think it's pretty good. Games are nice.

is in for it.

But you, reader dear, what are you playing this weekend?
