Topic of the Week: What are you going to be playing over Easter?

Topic of the Week: Easter

It’s only a few days away, friends, a nice break from the monotony of the daily grind: the Easter bank holiday. 4 days of freedom back to back. But what are you going to do with all this extra free time. How are you going to fill in these four days? 

That brings us to our Topic of the Week: what are you going to be playing over Easter? There are a couple of egg-themed games of course, and if JC is your bud you could probably even find a religious game or two, but maybe you’ll just diligently work through your massive backlog. I know you have one. Let us know in the comments. 

As always, I’ll get the ball rolling. 

I’ll be splitting my time between relaxing on the sofa playing Bloodborne, and by relaxing I do mean shrieking in pain as I die over and over again, and trying to finish some of the games that have been languishing in my Steam library. I think I might go on an adventure binge and finish Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments -- which I’ve already gushed about -- and maybe the first two episodes of Dreamfall Chapters. 

On Sunday I’m being dragged to my mum and dad’s for a big family meal, but I’m a man on a mission, so I might have to sneak my laptop in and find a quiet corner to play something that it can actually run, like Darkest Dungeon or Besiege. 

Anyway, that’s enough from me. What about you fine folk? What will you be playing across Easter?

I am actually going to be Live Streaming Watch_Dogs. Lets see if the vitriol is justified.

This is a giant waste of your Easter, Shriven. I think we'd all rather watch you eat a chocolate egg.

That's not very nice...luckily, you're not a very nice man, eh!? *giggles*

Second thoughts, that does sound like a terrible game to stream.

Any suggestions?

I have no suggestions. I hope this has been of some help.

A week of visiting family leaves me banished to the iPad over easter. I would have played Hearthstone but I forgot my authenticator. Again. Suggestions for decent iPad games are very welcome.

Had I been at my PC Pillars of Eternity would be likely. I didn't play it on release because I was half way through a World of Warcraft trial and wanted to get my use out of it. I might have been playing WoW.

Killing Floor 2 (hopefully), If Steam Upcoming titles is correct.

More Far Cry 4, it's a fun sandbox with lots of toys, want to try the co-op too.

War for the Overworld leaves EA shortly, GG

I've started Pillars of Eternity, but some of the Ye Olde America voices are grating on me. That and the fact it's bloody hard. But I shall persevere and hopefully see the light that others are proclaiming.

I also have the Talos Principle. I enjoyed and stormed through the demo, but for some reason my brain has turned to mush and I can't solve anything in the full game.

Other stuff in my library is indie game "The Escapists" which deserves a bit more attention as it seems good (as Mr. Hogarty pointed out), plus Alien Isolation which I'm a bit scared to even run.

Epoch mod for Arma3. Been having a lot of fun playing that with friends lately.

Not much because I work in a hotel, specifically the Overnight Audit, so pretty much any holiday is just another day that I don't see to me. That being said, with what little time off I do have, a combination of Scholar of the First Sin, Alien Isolation, and Binary Domain - the latter two where on sale recently so I picked them up.
