What Game Are You Playing This Weekend?

COMMUNITY QUESTION | Tell us about what you're currently playing.

For being a shorter week for the U.S. team than usual, it sure was busy! This week, Microsoft revealed the prices for both the Xbox Series X and the lower-powered Xbox Series S. While the PS5's price and launch date remains a mystery, we're hoping we'll hear about the platform's launch details sooner rather than later.

For this week, we're keeping Community Question simple. Tell us in the comments: What game are you playing this weekend?

After a couple hundred hours and change with Monster Hunter: World, I figured I was done for good. But then my housemate got into the PC version, so I'm once again running through one of my favorite games of 2018, this time in glorious 60fps. It's served as a terrific reminder of how fun Monster Hunter: World can be, especially when playing with a friend. Last night we prowled through the Rotten Vale together, successfully capturing three monsters in one expedition—and all this with the fearsome Bazelgeuse raining hellfire down upon us. No game does a better job of conveying a sense of epic scope than Monster Hunter: World, with its humongous monsters meeting in titanic clashes across its lush, multi-layered maps. Even with next-gen just around the corner, it's safe to say that I'll be taking on monster hunts for the foreseeable future.

I just wrapped a big review game, so I'm free in terms of work commitments for a bit. I'll likely be taking it easy this weekend and logging more hours with my friends in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. I haven't played for over a week since I had two reviews back to back, which included Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, so I'm eager to get back into it. Now that I'm free of both—though I might chase some skater challenges still—I don't want to jump into anything else that's super time consuming right now, so Call of Duty it is.
