I finished part one of Later Daters and now I'm moving onto To The Moon. I've heard good things from my co-hosts on this game. I'm also planning to finish up Sayonara Wild Hearts and play some Dauntless this weekend too. Oh, and I can't forget Animal Crossing!
Phil Hoff - Reviewer/Site Contributor/Co-Host of The Nindie Focus Podcast
This weekend I'll be spending more time on a deserted island (Animal Crossing, fighting through hell (Darksiders Genesis), getting my sportsball on (MLB the Show 20, Car Soccer), and helping get a dying man to fulfill his last wish (To the Moon). Oh... and spending time with a dinosaur, tune in to the Nindie Focus podcast to hear what game that is!
Mike Ryan - Reviewer/Site Contributor/Host of The Controller Throwers Podcast/Co-Host of the Nindie Focus Podcast
This weekend I'll be working towards my Ring Fit Adventure theme in Tetris 99. I'll also be knee-deep in my garden with Animal Crossing, and thinking of starting The Evil Within.
Christian Kobza - Site Contributor/Review Editor
This past weekend was a particularly productive one. I finished my first playthrough of FF7 Remake, I officially caught myself up on the Gears franchise by finishing the Gears 5 campaign, I returned to the Yakuza franchise after a year off by playing through Yakuza Kiwami, and I took advantage of the Stadia two month free trial by playing through Gylt - the service’s sole exclusive - beginning to end. This weekend will probably be less productive as I start my second playthrough of FF7 Remake while I bide my time until Gears Tactics releases early next week.
Jordan Lemos - Co-Host of the Nindie Focus Podcast
This weekend I'll be continuing the FFVII Remake after hitting the best section of any game ever, Wall Market. I'll also be continuing my journey to being adequate enough at Valorant, and continuing my playthrough of The Council, a game I didn't even know existed until last weekend.
Adam Chanto - Reviewer/Site Contributor
This weekend I am finishing up FF7 Remake’s story. So far it has been a blast, and I cannot wait to see where it leads! If I don’t feel jaded at the end of it I may pick up Resident Evil 3 Remake.

I don’t have anything new that I’ll be diving into over the weekend but I will be revisiting Super Smash Bros on the Switch as a few friends and myself will be duking it out in multiple arenas. Other than Smash I’ll be spending some time on Rocket League with my Xbox Clan trying to get some ariels and sweet goals!
