Ah, the weekend! There’ll be no chocolate eggs this time — unless you were smart and saved some from last week — but there will be video games galore. At least, for all of us at Push Square Towers there will be.

I’m cheating on PlayStation this weekend to continue my playthrough of Earthbound, a game I knew next to nothing about besides it legendary status. I’m only about a quarter of the way through, but I can already see why it’s held in such high esteem.

This weekend, I will be playing The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe. I can’t give you any more than that, but you can read my thoughts on the game when the review hits next week.

I’ve finished Horizon Forbidden West (finally) so it’s time to move on to something new. I started Lost in Random, so I think I’ll continue playing that.

PS4 Slipstream has been recommended to me by three different people — with a Resort Islands track breezily recalling 1986’s OutRun, skimming behind traffic to surf the slipstream and corner drifting like in OutRun 2, as well as a graphical comparison to the more advanced Super Scaler road effects in 1993 arcade gem OutRunners — there’s no way I’d resist this retro-style racer.
What are you playing this weekend, then? It’s definitely a slow period for new releases, so plenty of time to dig into your backlog or revisit an old favourite.
