Something for the Weekend: Let’s play games!

Rich has left me in charge of Something for the Weekend, he really shouldn’t.

Anyway, I though I would take a quick look at what you could be playing this weekend, first up, it’s time to bust some criminals in LA Cops…

LA Cops

LA Cops is a fast, action packed 3D top down shooter, set in the seedy underbelly of 1970’s LA where you control a maverick bunch of cops, playing by their own rules. Partner up and remember, in LA Cops, your buddies always got your back. Let’s forget the rules and start cleaning up these streets, our way.

Ori and the Blind Forest

Ori and the Blind Forest tells the tale of a young orphan destined for heroics, through a visually stunning action-platformer crafted by Moon Studios for the Xbox One. Featuring hand-painted artwork, meticulously animated character performance, and a fully orchestrated score, “Ori and the Blind Forest” explores a deeply emotional story about love and sacrifice, and the hope that exists in us all.

Jet Car Stunts

Feel the thrill of supersonic racing, miles above the ground! Drive a Jet Car, a hybrid between a racing car and a jet plane, and race your way through the most devious tracks full of jumps, loops, free falls and sharp turns. Packed with improved tracks, new cars and new game modes, this is the definitive version of Jet Car Stunts on any platform!

If none of those take your fancy, why not sign up to EA Access and grab your help 10 hours of Battlefield Hardline? Also this weekend if you are an Xbox Live Gold member you can have yourself a free trial of Dragon Age Inquisition, but wait, there is more! Lets not forget that to celebrate being a year old, all of Titanfall’s DLC is free to download.

Personally I’m hoping that GTA V’s heists mode starts working properly, I can dream right?
