What are we all playing this weekend?


The weekend is upon us! Before I ask wwppwappapwatw, I want to know: what you are doing to prepare to play this weekend? Me, I've got a routine - though of course I own tools to handle my own Cyber Razor Cut.

What are you playing this weekend? Here's what we're clicking on.

Adam: I've got my eye on pretty roguelike Tangledeep and cute medieval city-builder Kingdoms and Castles, but I'll probably fritter away most of my time on Out of the Park Baseball. It's 2020 and I might finally win the World Series with my shoddy Mets.
Alec: [Alec has been fired -ed.]
Alice: You bet your botty I'm playing Plunkbat. I've still not managed a win, only a second place that was so very close, but I'm still having a lark wandering around an island, picking up guns, bantering with the lads, and searching for those elusive Blue Hi-top Trainers. They really make my outfit pop, though obviously I enjoy the thrill of the hunt too. I'll almost be disappointed if they become a permanent unlock like most of the other clothing.
Brendan: I'm playing Pyre, the new fantasy wotsit from the Bastion people. It's... well, you'll see. I've also begun playing Final Fantasy IX, for some god forsaken reason. I've never played it before but it's the one that always appears in internet jokes and I think that has seeped into my psyche over time. It sure is a Final Fantasy game, and that's what I was craving.
Graham: I played and completed Inside last weekend. That's a masterpiece, isn't it? Much better than Limbo at communicating what you need to do in each area without simply killing you, and with better physics. Plus just totally beautiful. Adam has convinced me that the correct followup to this is What Remains of Edith Finch, so I'll try that this weekend while also plugging away at platformer The End Is Nigh. It has grown on me but it's no Super Meat Boy.
John: Gosh I hope I can find some time between the twin horrors of a 3 year old's birthday party and reclaiming our back garden from 3ft high meadow to play some more Kingsway. Flipping crikey, it's great. I have no ambitions beyond this.
Philippa: This weekend I will be playing Overwatch. I could also visit the Statue of Liberty. If there's time I should try to fit in a spot of confronting some Warhammer figurines.

But you, dearest reader, what are you playing?
