The holidays are just around the corner, and before you get busy shopping for presents, decorating, buying food for the upcoming party, and visiting family members, take some time for yourself to play some games. .
This weekend, we’ll revisit Los Santos, step into the matrix, put on the witch’s hat, and once again attempt to pass information on to our inner Master Chief.
Here’s what we’ll be playing this weekend.
Connor Makar, Staff Writer – GTA Online, Encryption
This weekend, I’m afraid I don’t have much time for games. It happens, adult life, etc. But, I took some time to rest and relax.
First, I’m totally going to spend some time on GTA Online this weekend. We’ll have a big new content update later this month, and as you’d expect, you’ll need a bit of cash to get in. That meant for me, it was theft time, and my bank account bulged somewhat.
Next to Encode. If you haven’t tried it, it’s a great little indie game based on a mysterious card game. It’s one of those games where you really can’t say too much, or risk spoiling some of the special sauce the creators have poured over this adorable thing. Grab it if you can and go blind if you want to have a good time.
Finally, as is typical of me, I will be participating in a fighting game this weekend. One of Arc System Work’s older titles, Blazblue Central Fiction, received a netcode update and a big discount. These provide a good enough reason to learn some combos and get killed by guys who haven’t stopped playing it since 2015.
Sherif Saed, Staff Writer – Halo Infinite PC
Time to spend more time (heh) with Halo Infinite. I love its multiplayer feel so far, even if I wish 343 had used a more friendly, time-based battle pass model, but no the challenge-based system it currently uses. I also wish there were more maps, but that’s something that will likely improve over time.
Of course, since I’m looking for more Halo content, I can’t wait to get started with the Halo Infinite campaign. I’m one of ten people who enjoyed Halo 5’s campaign, and I even appreciated Cortana’s aggressive arc from Halo 4. This looks to be a sequel to that, even if many of my questions about it. what goes on in the interim certainly won’t. solved.
If the story isn’t all there, I hope the gameplay keeps me hooked. Considering how satisfying it is to play Infinite multiplayer, I have high expectations for single player. Alex’s Halo Infinite Campaign Review says it’s a near-perfect blend of modern open-world design and the freedoms found in the classic Halo sandbox and its contained missions.
For all accounts, it’s going to be a great time, and I can’t wait to jump in and grapple with Jackal shields.
Stephany Nunneley, News Editor – Wytchwood,
This weekend I will give Wytchwood an effort. It was just released yesterday, December 9, and it looks pretty glamorous.
Developed by Toronto-based Alientrap who brought you the pretty stellar Apotheon, Wytchwood is a handcrafted adventure game set in a land of gothic fairy tales and fables. As the old witch of the woods, you’ll explore an eerie countryside, gather magical ingredients, concoct spells, and “pass judgment” with an unpredictable cast of characters and creatures.
The game has a lovely rendered storybook art style and allows you to collect, collect, cultivate, and craft various ingredients such as poison toads, newt eyes, and bottled scares.
You can also research and create different spells and spells that can turn people into frogs or trick them. Meanwhile, the world promises to be filled with stories, colorful characters, and stories fit for a fairy tale. It also has puzzles you will need to beat to best defeat the strange monsters that inhabit the forest.
It sounds pretty fun, and that’s what I’m planning to play this weekend.
Tom Orry, Editor-in-Chief – The Matrix Awakens: An Unreal Engine 5 Experience
Oh my gosh, isn’t this a bit cool? I talked more about this adorable next-gen visual in one Full article about The Matrix technology demo, but it’s so good, I want to bookmark it again. BILLIONhe Matrix Awakens: An Unreal Engine 5 Experience is something people use PS5 or Xbox Series X | S should download and play immediately.
There aren’t many games here if you categorize games as interactive experiences that challenge you in some way, but there’s plenty to do. I’ve replayed the track car chase scene a few times already, just to soak up all the features of Unreal Engine 5 and I’ll be back to roam the city a few more times. ‘ got the job done for the week.
I can’t wait for some proper Unreal Engine 5 games to be released. Hellblade 2 coming soon to Xbox Series X/S and PC, and that looks pretty good, too.
