Happy weekend gamers! I hope you get plenty of gaming in on this fine weekend.

That’s enough about me, what about you? What are you playing this weekend? Sound off in the comments below.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Will Release This Year

2015’s Star Wars Battlefront left a lot to be desired. It’s not necessarily a bad game, but it does not live up to what Battlefront used to be. EA and DICE realize that and will fix that in the upcoming sequel.

EA’s CEO Andrew Wilson, stated in a recent earnings call that the next Battlefront game will be released this holiday season. It will feature a new single player campaign mode as well.

“There will be new ways to play, including an all-new single-player campaign, and much, much more that we are excited to share with our player in the months ahead,” Wilson stated.

Wilson also mentioned that the game will be bigger, have more locations, and more characters that span across multiple Star Wars stories. It’s safe to say Rogue One and The Force Awakens will for sure be included in this one. Check out the statement to shareholders to see for yourself.

“We’re sorry to say that on January 9, 2017, Microsoft Studios announced the cancellation of Scalebound. We are very disappointed things ended up this way, especially since we know many of our fans were looking forward to this game as much as we were.

Scalebound’s director, Hideki Kamiya, also took to Twitter to express how sorry he is about the game being cancelled, but he promises to work extra hard on Platinum’s upcoming projects. NieR: Automata comes out in March and Platinum also has two other announced games, Granblue Fantasy Project Re:Link, and Lost Order. Both games are yet to be announced for the west, but look/seem promising.

Happy first weekend of Summer, and it is a hot one! I hope you are able to get plenty of gaming in this weekend.

I will be playing some competitive Overwatch. The mode recently launched in Public Test Realm. I played a few games earlier and lost all 3. Hopefully I can win the last 7. Trails of Cold Steel will also be played and Tokyo Mirage Sessions just arrived in my mailbox today. I will probably play the first hour or so just to see how it is.

If you’re into fighting game tournaments, the big CEO tournament is happening in Orlando this weekend and it should be pretty good. Games like Street Fighter V, Super Smash Bros, MKX, Guilty Gear, and many more will all be featured.

That’s enough about  me, what about you? What are you playing this weekend?
