The lights are on
We are all busy working hard here at GI, but this week we get a nice little break between bringing you the best gaming coverage. This Turkey Day we will be busy stuffing our faces with food and our consoles with delicious games. What are your holiday plans? Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
Kimberly Wallace: I’m heading back to Chicago for the holiday, and I couldn’t be more excited because I’m seeing my nephew for the first time. He was born on Halloween! Other than spending time with my family, I’m going to try to get some gaming in. I’d love to finally finish Assassin’s Creed III. My brother also got a Wii U, so I have a feeling I’ll be schooling him on it. Have a great holiday everyone!
Andrew Reiner: I'm once again hosting my misfit Thanksgiving. This year I'm expecting 15 to 17 people. In addition to unhealthy feasting, one room is set up for co-op gaming. Another is dedicated to football. To Last year, we poured Coke over the turkey. People loved it. We're doing it again this year. Pouring soda on a turkey makes it better. Seriously. Look it up on the Internet. Hope you all have a great holiday break! And good luck to all the Black Friday shoppers who are braving the crowds!
Joe Juba: I'm still going strong on Lego Lord of the Rings, and hoping to hit 100% on that sometime over the holiday weekend. When that's done, I can finally get back to Assassin's Creed III, which I kind of stalled out on. I want to see what happens in that game, but I'm not willing to just power through the critical path; I like being thorough with the side missions, but that also means that finishing an Assassin's Creed game tends to take me a long time.
O’Dell Harmon: I am going to try catch up on some Adventure Time and Regular Show. Once I’m done with that I will beat Donkey Kong’s Crash Course in Nintendo Land! Along with finishing XCOM and hopefully Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance. I might catch a Black Friday deal or two if I’m lucky.
Ben Hanson: I have no idea what I'm going to play this weekend. I'm thinking about checking out the remake of Lufia 2 for the DS from the Game Informer vault, but I might just sit around and wait for my Wii U to arrive. Nintendo Land is a great holiday game.
Jeff Marchiafava: After frantically trying to play every big game over past few weeks for GOTY considerations, I’m going to use Thanksgiving break to lazily play the games that I want to play. That will probably include Halo 4 and Far Cry 3, and maybe a little Minecraft for good measure. I’ll probably jump back into XCOM too, since my universe still needs saving.
Kyle Hilliard: Aside from hanging out with the in-laws and eating way too much food, I'll be playing Wii U exploring the Miiverse and maybe beating the Halo 4 campaign. Every time I turn that game on, I get distracted by multiplayer. Also, Assassin's Creed III.

Happy Thanksgiving, Game Informer staff!!! I will be dealing with family while thinking about my Wii U ;D
Family's coming over or something. More importantly I'll be getting some more time with my Wii U! :)
Pretty much what I'm going to be doing over Thanksgiving weekend is go to my grandma's house and have a nice meal and chat with family and then spend several hours on end playing Persona 4 Golden, eating leftovers.
BEARSONA!!!......Maybe...... Thanksgiving is a time for family, after all.
I have absolutely no plans for Thanksgiving and my family will not get together this year. So I will probably eat some tacos and play some Black Ops 2 and Twisted Metal: Black unless something comes up.
This is just a regular week(end) for me, so I got no extra plans. Still playing VCII DLC (planning on finishing all that the game has to offer by the end of the month). Also gonna be watching the final F1 race of the year (just like any other F1 race), hope Kimi can hang on to his 3rd spot in the championship. And curious to see who will take the WDC crown (prolly Vettel :P).
Trying to Platinum Gravity Rush still. I finished all the DLC packs at 100%, and now I'm trying to get my 2nd Platinum trophy. I hope I will, then find a place wih GOOD working Wi-Fi that actually works so I can sync my trophy information with the PSN server, and update my PSN account.
Resident Evil 5 and 2..odd combination I know.
I'll be playing Sleeping Dogs, which is surprisingly awesome , and maybe taking advantage of the single player challenges in Assassins Creed III. I'm hoping to roll credits on Mass Effect II so I can finally play my month old copy of Mass Effect III (gotta love corrupted save files). Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving everybody!
Well, I do not have a long weekend this week and I do have to work on Thanksgiving so I have no plans for a big feast but gaming wise I'll be with Zero Escape, Persona 4: The Golden, Resident Evil 6 and some Borderlands 2 with a side of Halo 4. Now that is a gaming feast!
Turkey, Black Ops 2 Multiplayer, Football (Bengals), Brewskis, and continuing my studies into the art of finding wild edible mushrooms...no big whoop.
Eat myself silly and maybe start the Zone of the Enders collection. Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Happy Thanksgiving GI staff and everyone else spending Thanksgiving with my family tomorrow. After tomorrow I am going to be playing some scribblenauts unlimted and Planetside 2. Might try and get some Need for Speed Most Wanted in and lego lord of the rings and whatever game I can find that I need to play through and finish. Might go out for Black Friday not sure on that yet have a great holiday wk end.
