Ronda Rousey is the latest victim of EA's sports-cover curse. PornHub suffered a notable dip in traffic after Fallout 4 launched last week. And Star Wars: Battlefront's season pass will introduce four expansions and 16 new maps to effectively split up the playerbase. Not like it, you will; but buy it, you might.
What are you playing this weekend?

This weekend, my wife and I will introduce my niece to the joys of Rock Band 4. We'll see if it resonates with her generation like it does with ours. With the Hearts of Stone DLC for The Witcher 3 behind me, I will be turning my attention to Star Wars: Battlefront and, possibly, Fallout 4. I know everyone is knee-deep in the wasteland, but I am waiting for the first few patches before throwing myself into the game.This strategy worked for me with The Witcher 3.

"The light is green, the trap is clean." That Ghostbusters quote always jumps into my head whenever my review plate is empty. It means I get to play whatever I want. And whatever I want equals Fallout 4. I personally haven't been this hooked on a game since Red Dead Redemption — though, let's not get crazy: Red Dead Redemption is one for the ages. Fallout 4 hasn't completely proven that to me yet, but it's been years since a role-playing game has gotten me hook-line-and-sinker like this Bostonian wasteland has. If, for whatever reason, I need a breather, I'll backtrack to Life Is Strange. But I wouldn't count on it this weekend.

Much the same as last week, the Fallout 4 wasteland beckons, along with some Rock Band 4. However, I do intend to get into some older games on the Xbox 360 and PS3 now that I have all my consoles single sourced into my home theater room.

Most of my weekend will be spent knee-deep in Fallout 4. I still haven't found a suitable club for career mode in FIFA 16, so I have found myself fiddling away with Rocket League when I only have a few minutes to play, instead of the longer sessions I like to put into Fallout.
