Whatcha playing this weekend, enthusiasts?

Pokémon Sun

The weekend is finally here, and for many of us, that means we can finally kick back and spend some quality time gaming. What does that mean for you? Whether you’re knee-deep in the latest release or cruising through your backlog, let’s hear what you’ve got planned.

I’m looking to dive back into a series that I have not played in over four years. With Pokémon Sun on sale for $10 at GameStop today, I jumped on the deal and am gonna go pick it up right after I submit this post. It’ll be my first Pokémon game since playing OmegaRuby in 2015. I am looking forward to relaxing with a nice, laid back RPG, though I admittedly know almost nothing about this particular iteration, other than that gyms took a few detours.

What are you working on this weekend? There are plenty of new games to try out, and lots more coming out in the next few days. Death Stranding just dropped yesterday, and seems to have cemented itself as the generation’s most shining example “you love it or you hate it.” Next week, meanwhile, has Pokémon Sword & Shield as well as Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Perhaps you’re buzzing in anticipation of one of these games, or maybe you’re knee-deep in your backlog. Whichever it is, sound off with your plans in the comments.
