Welcome to Player Attack’s TGIF, Thank Gaming It’s Friday! A weekly feature where we talk about what we’re doing over the weekend whether it’s games, movies, TV, books or anything else! We’d love to hear what you’re up to as well – heck, you might come across some like-minded people and become super friends!

Oh, hey there.
In between trying to complete a god damn thesis, I will definitely put some hours into Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, which just released on Steam, because Nostalgia. I also have been smashing TRON Run/r…
…and way too much Facebook Messenger Basketball….
I’ll also be watching AFL. Because football is back!

I’m not playing many games this weekend, because I’m in Poland!
Player Attack is in Warsaw for the World of Tanks Grand Finals, which start in about 10 hours from now. We’re chatting to everyone we can find: Pro gamers, casters, Wargaming staff… you can catch it all in a big episode of Player Attack when we get back!

During the last week I’ve put an unnecessary amount of hours into Trackmania: Turbo. My reward was becoming #1 in Canberra, #2 in Australia and, more surprisingly to myself, #41 in the world! At the time that was out of 404,000 people! I was truly chuffed! I’m probably going to retire on top so I don’t have to experience the sadness of watching my standings fall as people topple my records. It’s Trackmania, they WILL be toppled!.
I’ll be checking out the new Final Fantasy XV: Platinum demo and tidying up the last couple of missions of The Division.
It’s also my Wrestlemania weekend so yay! Was technically last weekend, but I’ve been very good and not looked anything up so I can sit down with the guys and a few beers.

Star Wars: Galaxies?
This weekend’s plan involves hitting things with sticks! Big things, small things, anything to maybe get me a step closer to Jedi. It’s a long road, it’s probably not worth doing, but if I get there I can take some lovely screenshots. And get slaughtered for being a poser. It’ll be great!

Ah, Friday! Hello! This weekend is all about Oz Comic-Con for me. So, rifling through boxes of comics and admiring fantastic cosplayers. Then maybe reading a little bit of Nineteen Eighty Four by George Orwell in my down time.
Jessica | @dotarray
I too am off to see the Wizard! The Wonderful Wizard of Oz… Comic-Con, that is. I’ll be running around with a camera and a microphone and chatting to exciting people – watch this space to see who I run into!
…games-wise, I’ve just started Undertale (yes, finally), and find my PC procrastination hours are being sunk into Mini Metro, which is an amazing blend of zen relaxation with occasional moments of exquisite frustration.

Finally all moved in. I’m currently fighting with my phone line, my internet provider and anyone who will listen over my lack of ADSL connection. Once that’s all up and running, it’ll be a proper home. You know what they say… Home is 10.0.0.1 (or something like that.)
