God, last week was scary. Amid our holiday slumber, this author forgot what day of the week it was, and forgot about WAYP. Fortunately, Assistant Editor Liam Croft came in with the save. If he hadn’t, that would have broken a streak stretching all the way back to 2013. Thank heavens, eh?

I’m still playing Watch Dogs Legion, although I must admit its structure is beginning to wear on me now. I do like the game a lot, but it feels like it’s run out of ideas as I near its conclusion. Will definitely be finishing it and some of the side-missions this weekend, though.

I think I’m going to have a crack at Immortals Fenyx Rising this weekend. I nabbed it on sale but I haven’t had a chance to take it for a spin. Some people say it’s just another Ubisoft open worlder, while others reckon it’s one of the most overlooked games of 2020. I’m looking forward to making my own mind up!

I’m currently half-way through Demon’s Souls, and I’d love to take another chunk out of it this weekend. It’s a stunning remake, and I’ve been having a great time with it so far. I’m taking it slow, but my strength-based knight is gradually becoming a force to be reckoned with.

After all the excited chatter surrounding it, I’m playing 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim. Two prologues in so far and it’s interesting! I’ll also make some time for Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War with friends in amongst watching FA Cup matches.

While I initially took a break from Final Fantasy VII Remake over the holiday break, I think it is about time I return to Midgar. As with most RPGs I play, I’ve been slowly making my way through it these past few weeks, but as someone who never played the original, I’m really enjoying where the ride is taking me. If I have time, I’d also like to continue my playthrough of Resident Evil 2 (2019), as I’m trying to work through as much of the Resident Evil franchise as possible before Resident Evil Village arrives in the coming months.

While I’d love to say I’ll be playing Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, it breaks my PS5 every time I try and play it, so I’ve just been waiting since it launched to actually play. I guess that’s kinda cool. I’ll use the time I was gonna put into Miles Morales to finish up Star Wars: Squadrons I think, since I haven’t actually finished it yet, and I really should.

I’ve been getting some Beat Saber and Pistol Whip sessions in as exercise during this lockdown, so I’ll be loading those up again. Outside of that, I’m also planning to complete The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel, having reached Chapter 6 on Wednesday. If all goes to plan, I’ll be immediately starting the sequel, too.

After claiming the Platinums on both The Last Campfire and Watch Dogs Legion earlier this week, I will be starting up Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. I may also dive into a few indie titles on the side: Maneater and Carto.
