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!

I was telling Jason that it’s a slow convention year for us because we aren’t going to as many shows as we’d like to. That doesn’t mean we’re off the hook though! I think that I’ll spend this weekend working on my Krieg cosplay and maybe remake my Silent Hill Nurse head since that barely survived SydNova.
I’ve been playing a lot of Fallout 4 again (to no-one’s surprise) and I might go through my Steam list and see what I haven’t played a lot of. Did you know I tried to do a Steam challenge once? Where I didn’t buy any new games and tried to play every game on my Steam list in a year? I think I made it about a month before my friends started gifting me things to be buttheads.

Well, my Fallout Shelter has survived – and the spreadsheet with it – so there will be a chunk of my time dedicated to that over this weekend. That said, I have been given codes for [redacted] and [redacted], so I’ll have to figure out how to fit those in as well, plus there’s that Mario Kart tournament I’ll be going to on Saturday.
On my phone, I’m trying to find the best interpretation of old French card game Mille Bornes, which I’ve never actually played using cards, but fell in love with on the Commodore 64 (of all places). I’ve got a couple of different versions now, but jury’s still out over which one I’ll be keeping.

My Charismatic Idiot character in Fallout 4 is into her 30s without doing very much of the base story and only the introduction for the Automatron DLC. Should probably go rescue Nick Valentine right after a reorganisation of Sanctuary…
Saturday also marks the start of Season 7 in Diablo 3, which I intend to smash early and hard. Must have that stash tab before No Man’s Sky releases! (I will not reach this lofty goal.)
If you’re playing Diablo 3 don’t forget Player Attack has an in-game Clan and Community. Check this thread for details!

I think I’m going to play some Unravel as that showed up in my EA Access queue, ready for an adventure with that little Yarny fellow.
I’ll also be messing with some different video capture methods of older consoles for some upcoming Videogame Shoebox segments.
TV-wise my fiancé and I realised the other day that we never finished season 2 of Daredevil so might try to watch that? Might be able to sneak in a trip to the cinema for either Ghostbusters or Suicide Squad too 🙂

Like I have been most of this year, I’m going back to games from recent years that I missed. This weekend: Remember Me. Then probably some Overwatch and Dota 2 (TI6 has me in the mood!). As for movies, the girlfriend and I will be catching Suicide Squad despite the reviews – and I’ll probably enjoy it, similar to how I still really like Batman v Superman.

Hi! This is the first TGIF I have done! I’m based in the United States, so for me I guess this is more Thank Gaming it’s Thursday? 🙂
Either way, this weekend, I plan to finish Stranger Things, see Suicide Squad and continue trying to get my full and complete playthrough of Dark Souls 3 (I’ve had a busy month, haven’t had much time to play). I’m also planning on setting up an appointment to get my next tattoo, which will be Lord of the Rings related.
Well? What fabulous adventures are you embarking upon this weekend?
