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?
Email the author Ben Reeves, or follow on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Game Informer.
With my disc drive dead I'll be focusing on my PSN games for the next few weeks at least. Working on getting to the inverted castle in Symphony of the Night and snagging the last of the Back to the Future trophies. Oh and BREAKING BAD!!!
I will be playing Dragon's Dogma. A lot. Absolutely fascinated with that game, and I'm loving every minute I spend with it. Also might pop in some Crysis 2 or ME# for multiplayer with my cousin.
Work, Skyrim, Lotro, and war movies. Lots of war movies =)!
I just got back from taking my kids to the zoo yesterday, so I'm tired and I don't plan on doing anything but sitting on my butt this weekend. I've taken a break from playing Dead Island and have started playing through the first Infamous again. The first time I played as a good guy, this time I plan on being evil to the core. I just finished A Dance with Dragons and I have to say that it might be my favorite entry in the series (my favorite had previously been A Storm of Swords). So needless to say, I'm planning on watching the next episode of Game of Thrones on Sunday as well- ONLY 2 EPISODES LEFT!
Rented Silent Hill: Downpour this weekend and I really wish I could like the game more but so many things about it are just frustrating me to no end. It shows alot of potential but so far it's the weakest in the series to me. Other than that, just back log games like Deus Ex: HR and LA Noire. Maybe try to finish ICO since I've only played SoTC on my HD collection disc.
Ali Rapp is an imposter, giving us girl gamers a bad rap(p). Even a momentary glimpse at her gamerscore or Raptr account should be more than enough proof, and half of her Twitter posts are about having sex with her boyfriend. There's already far too many women pretending to be gamers in the media. Shame on Game Informer for birthing another one.
Max Payne 3, Diablo III, and Xenoblade, I'm real impressed with how good this game is.
I'll be continuing to peg away at Jak 2 this weekend, I was never able to beat Jak 2 as a kid and have been able to breeze (well kinda) past the parts I got stuck at and I think I can finally beat it. I also plan on playing some Dungeons of Dredmor, picked it up months ago played it the first week I had it, but stopped, I don't know why, the game is amazing, some of the best five bucks I ever spent.
I will also be spending a fair amount of time anticipating Torchlight 2 and Resonance.
Playing through Nightmare difficulty on my unkillable monk on Diablo 3 and solving murders in LA Noire. I've almost completely lost interest in the Jak HD collection.
Diablo III, Starcraft 2, then reading some comics and my book, then hanging out with my friends on sunday
Ghost Recon and Minecraft for me.
Been playing Ghost Recon Future Soldier; when I'm not playing that, I'm playing GT5.
I got a pretty full weekend, so not a lot of time to play, but when i do get the chance, i'll dig more into Tribes Ascend (really fun, highly recommend, and it's FREE!!), some Skyrim, and i'm trying to decide whether to get Diablo III or Dragon's Dogma. Decisions, decisions.
