The lights are on
Even though working at Game Informer is great, it's still hard work. Sometimes we need to take a break from playing and writing about video games to...well, play more video games. It looks like many of us plan to spend this weekend relaxing, catching up on recent releases, or digging through some older titles. What are you guys up to?
Tim Turi: I've been in a weird
place with games, recently. The most obvious game I've gotten around to
checking out is Watch Dogs, which actually seems alright so far. Other than
that I've been playing the first game from Monolith (Middle-earth: Shadow of
Mordor dev), called Blood. It's an old-school FPS with tons of gore and crazy
weapons like a hairspray/lighter flamethrower. I'm also diving back into World
of Warcraft to scratch that MMO itch. We'll see how long that lasts, though.
Jeff Marchiafava: This weekend I
hope to get a little more time into the Destiny beta. I've been playing as a
Warlock this time around, though I don't like the hover ability as much as the
Hunter's speed double jump. Beyond that, I'd really just like to kick back and
play some Zen Pinball 2, and see if I can steal some high scores from my fellow
Ben Hanson: It's the weekend! I
haven't thought much about what I'm going to be playing, but I'm looking
forward to going on a Tron marathon (maratron) tonight with Tim Turi and Jeff
Cork. They've never seen the original or the sequel, and I remember being
surprised by how much I enjoyed both. Other than that, I'm hoping to finish off
the campaign for Cannon Brawl (the 2D RTS on Steam) and play some local
multiplayer. Oh yeah, then there's Transistor to finish up as well. But I've
been saying that for a while.
Dimitri Gedevanishvili: If I
have any time for gaming at all this weekend, it's going to be spent playing
Destiny or Crown of the Sunken King as I wait for The Last of Us Remastered.
Wayne Stainrook: I recently picked up Shin Megami
Tensei IV again, much to the chagrin of my free time... oh, who am I kidding? I
have nothing better to do than fuse pig kings and leopard men together in the
Cathedral of Shadows. Maybe I'll even finish it and get it over with!
Samm Langer: I'm going to do an open
water dive to get my certification in scuba diving! I'll also give the
Destiny beta a shot if I have time.
