Time to look back on the weekend! What did Friday, Saturday, and Sunday look like for our writers? What was the biggest news from last week and what are we looking forward to? These three questions will be answered in our Eyes on the Week(end) article!
We’re curious about your opinion and played games, so be sure to share your stuff on our social media channels!
It’s certainly been a weekend of significant laughter! Let’s just say ‘easy gamerscore’ titles have had me in stitches while watching Lewis playing them! Otherwise, I spent time on Battlefield I which has certainly been a change of scenery for me and I’m strongly considering playing this more frequently. Also went on GTA V Online and made a female character on Lewis’s account; plus my first kill! Finally, after many scares and jolting my shoulder, I managed to complete my first play through of Slender: The Arrival. I need to return for all the achievements I missed though as I failed to earn a single one. Oops…
Most exciting news of last week: As I do intend on getting back into Outriders with Lewis again, seeing the new endgame overhaul that’s coming with the Worldslayer DLC has got my attention. I’m also interested to see what Loot River will bring with it when it appears on Xbox Games Pass in May.
Looking forward to playing: Life is Strange: True Colours, Battlefield I, Stretch Arcade, AI: The Somnium Files, Resident Evil 7 DLC, Will You Snail?
Two working days in the weekend so I didn’t have a lot of time playing on my Xbox. With the limited time I played some Ayo the Clown and my recent addiction Roguebook. The attack combinations of Seifer and the support buffs from Aurora is my favorite duo, currently battling on 8x difficulty.
Most exciting news of last week: Halo’s roadmap made me excited again for Halo Infinite’s future. It has been a slow process for Halo players but things are finally speeding up. Can’t wait for season 2!
Looking forward to playing: Learning how to control my bike on MotoGP 22 is my main plan for this week.
Blessed news: I finally beat Elden Ring and it only took me 92 hours. Still: seeing the ending achievement pop was a mighty satisfying feeling and I’m actually aching to go back into it for NG+. Games like these don’t come around every year and I’m sure we’ll be talking about it for decades to come. I also beat A Memoir Blue this weekend, in a single sitting. It’s a narrative game without any dialogue about the bond between a daughter and her mom. Perfect Xbox Game Pass title that everyone should check out. Lastly, I started playing Chronos Cross: Radical Dreamers Edition. Can’t say it runs great on the Xbox, sometimes dropping to 10-20 fps and it has an overal blurry presentation for a rerelease like this, but I’m still happy I can finally play through the entire game.
Most Exciting news of last week: I saw the call for the Belgian booths at Gamescom and was instantly excited to go again. Definitely trying to visit this year as press and perhaps also from my new role as PR manager for our own PR & marketing company.
Looking forward to playing: Arise: A Simple Story has been on my wishlist for a while and the next-gen version just dropped into my lap for review. Will have my opinion up on the site soon!
This weekend I started playing The Living Remain. It’s a newly released VR title that I am also reviewing for LifeIsXbox, so stay tuned for that. It’s a zombie shooter built from the ground up by 2 people and it has some very nifty gun mechanics and upgrades system that was quite refreshing to see in VR. Sunday was mainly spent playing through Halo: The Master Chief Collection on PC as my brother hadn’t played them before. I always like switching between old & new graphics and the press of a button. Something so small in detail that adds a whole lot of wow, just never gets old.
Most exciting news of last week: Ghostbusters VR coming to the Quest 2! Made by the same studio that made FarCry VR, this will be a new campaign-based game that you can play with up to 3 of your friends or AI and take on various haunted locations. It looks great!
Looking forward to playing: More The Living Remain.
I spent the entire weekend grinding the multiplayer achievements of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. While they weren’t necessarily hard, they weren’t really doable on your own. Reaching level 60 took me 3 days, and I couldn’t have done that with the help of someone – I’m really thankful for their help! Besides Tomb Raider, I also spent some time playing Dead by Daylight. Decided to give The Nurse a try, and I’m doing pretty decently with her, to be honest!
Most exciting news of last week: The last few weeks have been a bit silent when it comes to announcements. However, they did reveal the release date for the new Kao the Kangaroo game, which is going to release on the 27th of May!
Looking forward to playing: I’m probably going to be playing the Tomb Raider campaign now that I’m done with the multiplayer achievements. And I’m also going to be playing some more Dead by Daylight.
Didn’t get to game at all this weekend as I decided to watch a bunch of movies instead. Watched Harry Potter 2-8 and The Godfather trilogy for the first time and Guns Akimbo which was a dumb but pretty fun movie to watch.
Most exciting news of last week: There was nothing I found interesting happening this week.
Looking forward to playing: My next review game and more Nobody Saves the World
I spent the bulk of my weekend playing Minecraft, delving into the mineshaft to drain it of it’s resources and deforesting the area around my jungle temple. Templetown, as I’ve come to call it, is now a walled settlement with a functional smithy, mine and farm. While I’ve still got ample space left I seem to find it difficult to think of what usefull buildings to make next. Besides that, I returned to Kamura when the urge to hunt some local megafauna in Monster Hunter Rise. My friend and I didn’t really work towards any specific goal so much as to clear off the rust that had built up by not playing for a month or two. One thing is for sure though, Elden Ring messed with what button is dodge in my mind. And lastly I played a bit of Shredders on Saturday morning. A blast as always, but one of the missions this time around was downright infuriating. I got through it in the end however.
Most exciting news of last week: With 29/07 Xenoblade Chronicles 3 got a release date. And even though it was met with silence by the rest of the team, I’m looking forward to this one quite a lot.
Looking forward to playing: More Minecraft! I’ve really gotten that itch as of late.
Hello, I’m Victoria. I’m from the UK and have been playing video games for as long as I can remember; back on DreamCast. I’ve pretty much fallen for Xbox since I was around eight years old and remember BioShock being my first game on the Xbox360. Although I find it thoroughly enjoyable to not only experience gameplay, I also find comfort in getting lost and engrossed in the online worlds that sometimes differ greatly from what we know. Another side of my Xbox passion would be achievement hunting and gamerscore. I thrive when I hear the little sound of one popping up on the screen and I’m always finding ways to work on my backlog when possible. Horror is my favourite genre so if you have any recommendations, don’t be afraid to send them my way!
