*deep breath* There’s a Nintendo Direct this week! And it was chock-a-block full of games. But the important news is that wefinal, know the name (and release date) of the Breath of the Wild sequel. RIPPING OFF The sequel to… The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Honestly, a lot less mouth. And that box is… good, art.
Elsewhere, we breaking new Zelda trailer extremely detailed and look back Xenoblade Chronicles 3 developer History of Monolith Soft with Nintendo, who happens to be working for Tears of the Kingdom. But we also took the time to review Pokémon MMOs like Temtemand we were impressively!
Now, some of our great writers have shared their plans for the weekend below, and we’d love to hear from you guys in the comments section below! Happy reading!

Remember when I left on vacation and believed I would finish Xenoblade Chronicles 3 during the aforementioned absence? The 100th hour is coming up on my save data and as far as I can tell I’m near the end.
Add a splice of SD Gundam Battle Alliance intense combat and heavy upgrades along with the sad realization that I’m nowhere near as good as I remember being Radiant Silvergun and that’s my weekend sorted out… Assuming I can stay away long enough Splatoon 3, Saga River City Three Kingdoms and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle CHEAP. 48 hours is not enough.

I just downloaded it Harvestella demos – I don’t usually bother with demos, but this one I thought required me to try it myself. I like farm games, but I’m not a huge fan of the Square Enix JRPGs… they’re too long and have too many characters. Admittedly so are farming games. But it’s different!!!
So far, it looks good but it’s a long cutscene. I hope I can do something soon. Also, is it me, or is it almost exactly the plot of Bloodborne???

With recent gameplay demos of Bayonetta 3 leave me feeling a little… well, fartsfor lack of a better word, I went back Bayonetta 2 trying to get myself back in the mood. I’ll get back to the first game, but I’m not sure I’ll have time to get through both before the end of October, so this will have to do. And yes, it is still a masterpiece in action gameplay!
Elsewhere, I’m playing through Death Stranding on PS5, with all those ‘Director’s Cut’ additions and other stuff. It’s a really nice game to relax when I want to relax; Walking through the beautiful terrain while listening to the wonderful music of Low Roar is sure to make for some memorable moments. It took me a few tries to really appreciate Death Stranding, but now I can’t get it enough.

Blimey, it’s a Direct. At least for me. I have some work to do this weekend, so I won’t be playing games too much. Because I think I need more RPGs and farming simulations in my life, I’ll take the demos for Harvestella and Jack moves on Switch. But I won’t be silent about the new either Theatrhythm game, The last bar lineso to satisfy my appetite i am looking for my 3DS to play some Curtain call!
Honestly, it will probably be a Final Fantasy weekend. I was pulled back Final Fantasy XIV on PS5 thanks to ‘Operation Callback’ – so that’s any other free time I could have gone. Oh good. See you all next week!

This weekend will be like the last for me: a struggle for any quality gaming time! I recently moved house and any free moment I have is surrounded by towers of still unpacked boxes that make me feel guilty watching an episode of Boys before going to bed instead of packing everything up.
I’ve been trying to play a game a bit over the past few weeks and I’d love to be able to spend some more time on it – for the sake of rating it for your lovely people. Please touch the artwork So far has been a great company, a handheld puzzle tool with impressive visuals and a great sense of humour.
The premise is too complicated to explain in the space I have here, but this video that I linked to a while back depicts the developer himself who did a great job of rolling things out.

I‘had problems starting a new series of games this summer but never committed to finishing them, but that changed this week! I managed to transfer the credits to Sixth Monster Attack, Elite beat agent, Crocodile back and even Immortality on Xbox. Door of death & Digimon Survive) I’m thinking it might be okay to start something new!
While the campaign for Splatoon 3 looks super hot, I think I had this incredible urge to break my GameCube and play through something on my old CRT tube TV! I started Metroid Prime earlier this week and while I really should stick with it since I’ve never played it before, another part of me wants to dive into Main quest discs I own for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time… The classics will always hold me back, I swear. But now Ao Dai about to convert and Omori is collecting dust on my shelf! What do I do? Someone, please send help!
As always, thanks for reading! Be sure to leave us a comment below with your weekend gaming plans!
