The lights are on
We are getting the heck out the Game Informer offices because it's time to celebrate the holidays, and catch up on all those video games we have been putting off all year.
Tim Turi: Over the holiday break I’m hoping to play both new and old favorites. I really want to get together with my cousin, who helped introduce me to gaming at an early age, and play a bunch of old Genesis and Super Nintendo games. I want to finally beat Far Cry 3, Borderlands 2, and Dishonored. Street Fighter X Mega Man also has me itching to go back to the classic series quite a bit. Oh! I think I’m getting a Wii U for Christmas, too, so I may be playing some Nintendo Land with friends
Jeff Marchiafava: I’ll be using the holiday break to catch up on the best games of 2012. Including Far Cry 3, Borderlands 2, and hopefully finally finishing XCOM: Enemy Unknown. I also have a couple of games I’m expecting as Christmas gifts, like Valkyria Chronicles and Tropico 4. Sounds like someone is going to be a smarty pants in the New Year.
Kyle Hilliard: After bouts of sickness both personally and from other members of my household, I am looking forward to a break of scaled back responsibilities, hanging out with the family, and lots of video games. I have games that I still need to finish like Call of Duty: Black Ops II, some I need to start like Far Cry 3, and I have double experience vouchers for Halo 4 that are just wasting away doing nothing. I also have plans to watch a lot of James Bond movies.
Joe Juba: I still haven't finished a bunch of games that I had hoped to by this point, but that's not going to stop me from starting up a new one! I grabbed a copy of Dragon's Dogma, so over the holidays I'm hoping to dive into that one. I'll also be playing an assortment of mobile games, because it's easier to do that when you're surrounded by family.
Andrew Reiner: My holiday break is once again dedicated to 100 percenting a few of this year's releases. The first game on this list is Far Cry 3. I'm going for all of the idols and achievements. Next up is Sleeping Dogs. I loved the hell out of this game, and can't wait to see what the DLC has to offer. Borderlands 2 is the final game on this list. I already have the new DLC, and hope to finish all of the campaign and DLC missions before I return to work in early January. Happy holidays and happy gaming, everyone! Be safe and warm!
