What are we all playing this weekend?


Is this week at Saturday already? They grow up so fast...

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

Adam: I'm going to spend some time with grappling fest Fire Pro Wrestling World. The plan is to create a stable of RPS wrestlers and then lead them to glory against the best that the independent circuit has to offer. Graham "The Hammer" Smith will be our leader.
Alec: I'm sticking with Iron Crypticle, the highlight of this week's Unknown Pleasures. It's exactly the kind of game that fits into the small gaps between taking a child to birthday parties and picnics in the park and explaining to them that we can't actually do any of those things because it's bloody raining again. DID YOU KNOW: if you already own Iron Crypticle's predecessor, Iron Fisticle, you get it as a free upgrade. Check yer Steams!
Alice: I shall be Plunking that Bat, same as every weekend. My wrist is caning after a week at the keyboard but I'm too damn foolish to stay away. I quite fancy being up some hills in the rain too, and this weekend looks set to deliver that opportunity.
Brendan: I'm still building my underwater space castle in Subnautica. I have something called a "Moonpool" now and I intend to look at it long and lovingly. I might go deeper into some jellyfish caves, where I will suffer an intense and insufferable unease in search of small bits of shiny metal.
Graham: I'll be playing Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, no doubt, by hopping in for cheeky games before bed. I love it so much. But I've also installed a handful of other games that I've been meaning to try from across the past year - Little Nightmares, Inside, Mafia 3, Edith Finch - and one new game, Edmund McMillen's just-released platformer The End Is Nigh. I hope I like one of them.
John: [John is fired, of course. He always is. I'm starting to think he tries to get fired as the weekend nears so he can skip having to write this. He always comes crawling back pleading for his job on Monday morning so, really, it'd be a lot easier to simply tell me WPAPWPWAPWPAWPPTYWT. -ed.]
Philippa: This weekend I will be playing Football Manager 2017. I should also visit the lumber yard. If there's time I will try to fit in a spot of assessing some ancient Greek statues.

But you, dearest reader, what are you playing?
