Welcome to Player Attack’s TGIF, a weekly feature where we discuss 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!

Did you know World of Warcraft finally allowed the best race in the game to play the best class in the game? Yes, you can finally play as a Gnome Hunter. And Gnome Hunters get mechanical pets. Starting with a mechanical bunny at level 1.
The Legion expansion pack is out next month so I may as well resubscribe now. That’s definitely the reason, not the Gnome Hunter thing.

I bought Overwatch earlier this week and I’m hooked. Also for anyone in Adelaide, I’m playing in a (really awesome) production of Wicked at the Shedley Theatre in Elizabeth until July 30! Come have a great time and say hello!

This weekend will involve watching my bank balance fall dramatically while I weep as the countdown to my wedding in November means I actually need to pay for it…crazy, right?!
After spending the last few months working through The X-Files for the first time I’m finally almost done! Just the new mini-series to go so maybe I’ll get to that?
Gaming-wise though I’m thinking of moving over to PC for my Overwatch playing as I actually know people playing it on that platform. Chuck your battle.net id’s and lets get some Player Attack games going!
Have fun out there!

This week, I took my niece and nephew out for a long walk to catch Pokémon. We’d planned to just wander aimlessly, drop by a few Pokéstops and see what we could spot, but the morning ended up with me claiming my first gym! I stayed in control of that thing for about an hour, which is particularly impressive when you realise I’d owned it with a tiny Sandshrew with a CP of just 74. So proud.
In other news, after spending so much time away from my desk, playing all sorts of mobile games, I’m pleased to confirm that I’ve actually started playing something on my PC, and I’m hooked. It’s so much fun – I was up way past my bedtime yesterday completing quests, and I can see a lot of my weekend disappearing behind a keyboard, exploring and micromanaging and looking after my new favourite characters.
(I am, of course, playing Fallout Shelter, which is out now for PC.)

And that’s the team’s plan for the weekend. How about you guys?
