It is time once again to ask the most important question to gamers when it comes to their hobby this weekend: Whatcha’ Playin’?

Ah, labor day weekend. The sweet, sweet release of a three day weekend for many of us begins tomorrow, and I’m very ready–especially considering we have some new awesome games hitting this weekend. I’m going to keep it simple and really narrow my focus this weekend on one of my most anticipated games of the year, with possibly a little mobile gaming tossed in for good measure.

 

Astral Chain

I don’t think I’ve ever played a Platinum game I didn’t like, and this one has pretty much all the right vibes going for it in every trailer I’ve watched. Gorgeous anime visuals? Check. Awesome looking robot looking buddies to help you out? Check. Gritty police procedural with enough wackiness to shake a stick at? Check, check, check. I’m really ready to get in there and mix things up this weekend.

 

Pokemon Go

Like pretty much everyone else on the planet, I played Pokemon Go on its initial release. Like 90% of the people that played it back then, I dropped it after the fad had died down due to a lack of features and constant bugs. Picking it back up over the past few weeks has created a new addiction and family oriented affair as I head out with my family to challenge gyms, fight raids, and spin some Pokestops on a weekly basis. It is really impressive how far this game has come in the time since its release, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that it gives me another excuse to take a quick jaunt around the neighborhood.

 

So what are you playing this long weekend? You checking out the newest mobile game Pokemon Masters? Jumping into Astral Chain? Checking off some games from the backlog? Let me know in the comments below, and have a fantastic weekend!

  1. Hey Daniel – glad to see your new website is up and running. Looks great! That Astral Chains game sounds interesting, curious to hear more about it down the line.

    I actually have some real time to game this weekend, so I’m looking at making progress on a number of things, in this priority order:
    1) Destiny 2 – last Iron Banner before Shadowfall and I have a number of triumphs I want to knock out.
    2) Forza Horizon 4 – some new exclusive cars I need to park in my garage over the summer week.
    3) Bard’s Tale I (remastered) – grind up some levels in the old computer classic
    4) Jump back into Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and get back into the story.
    5) Finish Blazing Chrome’s boss rush mode
    6) Wolfenstein: Youngblood – try to wrap up the remaining achievements and 100% it
    7) Try out World of Warships
