Mario 3D All-Stars! Also continuing my playthrough of Kingdoms of Amalar Re-Reckoning and probably some Overwatch. Comic Tracer skin is available until the 28th for getting nine wins in Quick Play, Arcade and Competitive. Have a great weekend everyone!

Wow, there are a lot of really great games that have just released. This weekend I'll be playing some WWE Battlegrounds, Hades, and Super Mario Sunshine. I'm absolutely loving Battlegrounds, think WWE meets NBA Jam. Have a great weekend everyone!

This weekend, I'll of course be playing the normal three reoccurring games. Continue clearing out floors in Luigi's Mansion 3, and will probably find another horror-y game to start to dig in to. Getting the itch to jump back in to Friday the 13th too... Or Dead by Daylight. Choices choices choices.

This weekend I'll be reliving my college days with some Mario 64 via the Super Mario 3D All-Stars game, punching some bad guys in Streets of Rage, and maybe finally play some Mega Man 11.
Jordan Lemos - Co-Host of the Nindie Focus Podcast
This weekend I'll be diving into Mario 3D All-Stars to play Sunshine and Galaxy for the first time ever. I'll also be checking out the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (phew that's a mouthful) multiplayer alpha that is going on this weekend on PS4. I'll also be playing the full release of Hades on Switch that launched yesterday and trying to escape from my mean dad, Hades. I may also be diving back into FFXIV now that I've recently unlocked machinist and have made my way into the Heavensward expansion on my free account.

I’ve surpassed the 100 hour mark in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 and still have dozens more hours to go if I want to reach level 100. Since I could only take so much, I took a break from all the skateboarding earlier in the week by playing through Hyrule Warriors to prep for the upcoming Age of Calamity and also finished the campaign in Marvel’s Avengers. This weekend I’ll be hopping back on the THPS 1 + 2 pain train as I inch myself closer and closer to its platinum trophy.

This weekend I will be checking out Journey of the Broken Circle on Switch as well as the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Alpha. Different ends of the spectrum, but really looking forward to both!

I'm not sure what I'll get into this weekend. For sure I'll be playing some Rocket League on and off. I have an idea for making a game though so I'll brush up on good ol C# again and see what I can do to get a prototype going.
That's what we are playing, what are you all playing? Let us know in the comments below!
