What Are You Playing This Weekend?

The weekend is for probably getting to the work I didn’t get to during the week, goddammit. But some of that work is video games, so that’s something.


This week’s Cyberpunk 2077 previews got me itching to play some cyberpunk games while I wait. I never actually completed my no kill/no detection run of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, one of my favorite stealth games. While I finished Mankind Divided, I rushed it a bit. I’m wondering if it’s worth popping back into one of them this weekend.

What about you? What are you playing?

Just started Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It’s got a lot of staples I’m not a huge fan of (“slide down the thing while stuff happens all around you,” “look for the very obvious vines/rocks/grates along one very specific spot of wall to climb”, etc), but the overall presentation of the game is keeping me interested so far. I did roll my eyes a little when the first destination was Ye Olde Jedi Temple, because I think Star Wars is more interesting the further away you get from that stuff, but I’ll keep on trucking for now. [And yes, I know it’s right there in the name, but after the grimy boots-on-the-ground opening, I’d rather the story stay on that “Jedi on the Run” thing than go back to the cosmic balance of Light/Dark on a grand scale stuff.]
