Playing primarily Hades and My Hero One Justice 2. With a few rounds of Overwatch and Hotshot Racing. Have a great weekend everyone!
Roger Reichardt - Co-Host of The Nindie Focus Podcast/Reviewer
I'll be doing more delving into the depths of Hell this weekend in the absolutely phenomenal game Hades. It's the best roguelike I've ever played, and is definitely my contender for game of the year. The game mechanics, the writing and story telling, the artwork, the music, it's all great. If you haven't picked it up, you really need to!
Phil Hoff - Reviewer/Site Contributor/Co-Host of The Nindie Focus Podcast
This weekend, I'll be spending more time realizing that I'm old and that my hands are broken as I continue mountain climbing in Celeste. Also need to finish getting the Tracer Comic book skin in Overwatch. Plus a new Rocket Pass dropped this week. I should probably quit my job so I can free up some time.
Mike Ryan - Reviewer/Site Contributor/Host of The Controller Throwers Podcast/Co-Host of the Nindie Focus Podcast
This weekend, I'll be partaking in the Rocket League Llama-Rama, and earn some goodies for both the car soccer game and Fortnite. I'll also be prepping for Halloween in Animal Crossing, as well as reliving the good old days with Mario 64.
Christian Kobza - Review Editor/Site Contributor
I finally got the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 platinum I've had hanging over my head for the past few weeks. With that finally behind me, I'll be spending my weekend with the next game on my Yakuza list - Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise.

This weekend I’m all in on Hades. I’m not giving up until I successfully escape the underworld.
Kyle Federline - Site Contributor/Host of Parent Quest/ Co-host of The Spectacular Comic Book Podcast/ Co-host of the Real Dudes Podcast
With a new Rocket Pass releasing I’ll be spending most of my weekend trying to unlock some stuff in Rocket League. Over the last couple weeks I’ve been working on trying to stream more regularly on Twitch which has lead me to the idea of diving into a game that I’m not to familiar with...No Mans Sky. Trying to figure out what games to stream overwhelms me but No Mans Sky seems to be the perfect game, especially with the new update dropping.
Karrington Martin - Site Contributor/Co-host of the Real Dudes Podcast
Does watching Trevor Bauer pitch for the Cincinnati Reds count? Oh you meant video games! I bought NBA 2K20 on Xbox and Switch and I might finally play a major sports game outside of Madden for once ($5 total for both purchases). I was thinking about playing Hades as well seeing a ton of love for it recently. Also since I'm on vacation actually testing out Game Pass streaming since it has had a full release.
That's what we are playing. What are you playing? Let us know in the comments below!
