The lights are on
Many of us are still playing Diablo III, while some of us are depressing ourselves by playing Max Payne 3. The rest of us are playing Minecraft. Is there anything to do on weekends beside play games?
Kyle Hilliard: It’s a long weekend, and I beat Max Payne 3, and I am not all that interested in Diablo III, so I am not sure what to play next. Dragon’s Dogma maybe? Or some XBLA Resident Evil 4? Or maybe I will grab a Vita and play some Gravity Rush? I’m really struggling to make a decision here. I might go get some pizza with Jason Oestreicher, as well. No promises.
Jeff Marchiafava: This weekend I’ll continue switching between the explosively violent shootouts of Max Payne 3 and the peaceful world building of Minecraft. Last night I found a crescent moon-shaped island that I built a secret lair underneath, complete with an entrance hidden behind a waterfall. Last time I played Max Payne 3, I shot a bunch of dudes in the face. Video games!
Tim Turi: This weekend I’ll be continuing my quest to quell the forces of hell. I plan to continue trudging forth as my main Barbarian, while passing along new gear to my lower-leveled Demon Hunter. I love the cycle of feeding my alt character new gear. It’s so simple, and always keeps me playing at least an hour after I intend to stop. Oh, Diablo III.
Ben Hanson: A certain anti-social part of myself is looking forward to listening to podcasts while playing Diablo 3 by myself tonight…in the dark…with a blank expression on my face. After that I’m going to embrace the fact that it’s Memorial Day by visiting my lake lot with some friends for some cold swimming sessions followed by heated Ping-Pong matches. Also, inspired by Cliff Bleszinski (Epic Games) and Mikey Neuman’s (Gearbox) Twitter exchange I will be playing Body Harvest for the Nintendo 64. It was made by DMA (pre-Rockstar North) and I’m looking forward to some janky N64 open-world action. Have a good weekend!
Jack Gardner: After I have finished climbing a nearby mountain to shout to the world that I now work at Game Informer, I’ll be delving more into Diablo III and Valkyria Chronicles. I’ll probably also find some time to play some League of Legends and watch the sweet Norwegian film, Troll Hunter.
Ali Rapp: I'll be continuing my Skyrim binge (I'm currently working on getting my smithing skill up to 100) and going to my sister's sleepover. My sister is in her 30s. That's not weird, right?

Finishing up Uncharted 3, Binary Domain, Sonic 4 Episode II and Batman Arkham City. Why did I not finish up Batman and Uncharted before? I have no idea. Can't remember. But I left a few chapters of each, so I'll knock 'em out this weekend with Sega's shooter. ALL of these are excellent games.
I've got Xenoblade, Deus Ex, and Portal 2 on deck after that. As well as a Japanese Import (Another Century's Episode R for PS3). I hate being "backed up". Its awesome that there are SO many great games out there, but man. I always feel like there are games to buy every month. And because of recent events, I really feel compelled to pick up Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning now. Especially since EA FINALLY WORK UP and knocked down the MSRP! I know I wasn't the only one putting some blame on EA for keeping it up by $52 for a new copy online, which is ridiculous for a game that came out in February.
Well, actually, the UK import version of Reckoning is only $40. EA still has the local version at $51, good thing the PS3 is region free. Jesus christ EA - when the import is cheaper, YOU'RE NOT PAYING ATTENTION.
I've been sessioning X Men 2: Clone Wars for the Sega with my buddy. This game is tight!
I'm switching between Max Payne 3 and Team Fortress 2...
I was pretty disappinted with Max Payne 3 (I'min the process of writing a review right now), and actually traded it in for Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. The visuals are amazing, much better than Reach's. The strange Forerunner architecture looks beautiful and the open landscapes, especially on the mission "Halo" look beautiful, and much better than the bland landscapes seen in Reach. I'm also revisiting Skyrim.
Im such a nerd i just love me some diablo not. I also would love to binge on some gayrim oh sorry skyrim. in diablo im lvl 14567 and hav 6 mystic cracker jack stix, 9 *** magic shoes laces and i have the power to shoot gay juice out my butthole. in skyrim i have the sacred armour of gayylord mcgayballs im a freaking loser who plays these things called rpg that suck. be a man go to gamestop and pick up GHOST RECON and grow a set of these things called testies u fruit cakes. i didint see one editor mention anything about a game that wasint for mythic flamers.
i have been playing Max Payne nonstop and beat it on hardcore already and i just need a couple more levels with old school mode, but i also made a secret house underground with a glass ceiling for the roof in minecraft.

Oh there's a new GI editor? I'm a bit behind, huh.
