The lights are on
Many people were out of the office this week to cover Gamescom. Those of us left behind will use the weekend to go to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, play some of the Summer’s new releases, and revisit some great old titles.
Josh Straub: Minnesota Renaissance Festival. 'Nuff said.
Ben Reeves: Vegas baby! Oh, that was last weekend. I guess this weekend I'll take it easy. I'm busy playing Darksiders II and New Super Mario Bros. 2, and I finally caught up on Breaking Bad, so I'm looking forward to this weekend's episode.
Kim Wallace: I’ve decided I want to play something scary this weekend. Some of you gave me recommendations on Twitter, saying that Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Slender are my best bets. We’ll see if they can make me shake in my little Converses. Points, if you guess what movie I’m referencing with that last line. (Hint: replace Converses with another type of footwear.)
Dan Ryckert: Heading to LA for Summerslam!
Ali Rapp: My sister, her husband, and her baby bump are visiting Minnesota this weekend, so I'll be hanging out with them on Saturday. And apparently on Sunday, my partner is taking me on a super secret surprise date. Wahoo! I hope it includes some Borderlands co-op. I'm playing as Lilith. Phasewalk is the best thing.
Jack Gardner: I’ll be eating delicious Indian food and going to the Renaissance Festival with friends. On the gaming side of things, I’ll be finishing Enslaved and delving into Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Also, I’m still trying to find time to go see The Dark Knight Rises… (hangs head in nerd shame).
Email the author Jack Gardner, or follow on Twitter, and Game Informer.
Darksiders 2! Such an addicting game, glad I bought it!
Dream Drop Distance.
Same as last weekend: RE:ORC and GTA:LCS
Also my parents' wedding anniversay is on Sunday. I'll be spending the day with them.
I won't really have much time for games :( instead I will be doing some drinking and working on putting together a weeks worth of lesson plans for my 7th and 8th grade multimedia class and trying to find a new place for my fiance and I to live.
More Fallout 3 and Rayman Origins for me. Might be able to finish Rayman tomorrow, so I could be starting another game before the weekend is out.
I'm going to start Darksiders 2 (currently sitting next to me on the couch waiting for my son to go to bed) and trying to get further into disgaea 3. Item world keeps getting in the way of the story
Looks like I'm going camping, so I'll probably just bring my PSP.
Darksiders 2 and Mass Effect 3. Anyone want a fire-dealing glaive in Darksiders 2 (PS3)?
I'll be serving as the squad medic in Battlefield 3 this weekend. I love how well that game lends itself to playing with friends!
Gonna wrap up Persona 3 FES and then maybe play some Skyrim or Fallout New Vegas after that. Maybe go outside.
