The lights are on
Borderlands 2 comes out next week. In preparation a lot of us are cleaning off our gaming plates. Time to finish games like Mark of the Ninja and Sleeping Dogs.
Tim Turi: I’m got my hands on an advance copy of Borderlands 2. This is going to drive most of you crazy, but I think instead of playing that game, tonight I’m going to have some drinks with friends and work on my Resident Evil 4 playthrough. After that I’ll play a bunch of Borderlands 2 as the Ninja character while peppering in some Mark of the Ninja and Rock Band Blitz.
Kyle Hilliard: I’ll be playing a game for review over the weekend, and we’re having a visitor from out of town. Our guest has a baby who is the same age as my daughter, so it’s going to be a house with 100% more baby in it than usual.
Ben Hanson: Magical games from the holiday season have started flowing into the office for review, but I hope to keep playing some of the games that I’ve committed to. I’m really enjoying Mark of the Ninja, so I hope to blast through a couple more hours this weekend. There is also Final Fantasy IV on the DS consuming my free time, I went in skeptical of the port but I think that it looks great and I love the circle-pad of the 3DS. That might be it, but we’ll see if I get swept away by some of the mysterious and unreleased games floating around here. Enjoy your weekend!
Kimberly Wallace: Since NHL 13 came out this past week, I'm devoting my weekend to it. I've already explored Be A GM mode, but now I'm finally ready to play against others online. It should be fun to see if people are check-heavy this season, since if they miss one, the consequences are greater than ever before. It makes me wonder if people will think before they check and play less aggressive. Guess there's only one way to find out!
Jeff Marchiafava: This weekend is my last chance to finish up Sleeping Dogs before Borderlands 2 takes over my life. There’s zero chance of me actually finishing it, but I’ve enjoyed the game way more than I thought I would. I also plan to play more of the excellent XBLIG title Gateways. If think you’d like a fun 2D Portal-esque puzzler, definitely check it out!
Jason Pfitzer: Tonight I am going to celebrate my brother's 5th year anniversary with his lovely wife at the Shout House Dueling Pianos, which has never been anything short of a fun time. Tomorrow I am going to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival in Shakopee, MN with some of my college buddies. As for Sunday, I'll more than likely just sit around and destroy people on cRPG.

I wanna finish off Sleeping Dogs before Borderlands 2 but I doubt itll happen. Also gotta keep trudging through Darksiders 2, nowhere near close to beating that.
Im going to be playing alot of the fifa13 demo also plenty of fifa12 trying to get to division 1 im currently in division 2,then probably hit up some RDR free roam, im defenitly picking up borderlands 2 next week
I'm hoping my AC adapter arrives before the release of Borderlands 2. It just had to die on me before this game hits the shelves!
This being my first week back to school, the fire is one again lit under me to do my best. I always feel so guilty playing games, because any sense of accomplishment is brought down by the knowledge that effort could have been put towards my comics. but...
Mark of the ninja has obsessed me since your test chamber, and Skyrims hearthfire keeps me going back lately as well.
Trying to plan a giant Skycity in Minecraft. Writing goals, making blueprints, and estimating needed resources are hard. Almost got it though. The EATS road will be awesome. In addition, Zelda: Twilight Princess, Halo 3, and Xenoblade will be played too. Can't wait for MGS:GZ, Halo 4, & RE6!
I finished up Darksiders II earlier this week and have jumped back into skyrim. I downloaded the first borderlands on PSN, which has been great so far. I also plan on working on my backlog once I figure out where to start.
Got nothing going on maybe some resident evil 5 and madden 13 but I don't want to start anything because borderlands 2 is around then corner if anyone wants to play my psn ID is drewmink all my co workers aren't getting borderlands so I would rather play with real players then solo, alright then lol
I'm playing Darksiders II, Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Arena and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 this weekend. Should be an awesome weekend.
Really should get around to finishing Darksiders 2, especially as I've got Borderlands 2 coming next week. It's a tough life.
Resistance 3 and NSMB 2
Feels weird to say but I am pretty much getting rid of all of my current games except my open world ones. Unfortunately for me I'm out of money so I have to make the sacrifice to get some new holiday games.
Fable 3 work some borderlands finishing and vampire smile
Hopefully will get a ton of mass effect 3 out of the way. Then a bunch of football and work
Going to play some Transformers: FoC, and whatever else I can in my free time from work this weekend. Then after Tuesday it will just BL2.
Last weekend I was going to tear through the remain trophies for Final Fantasy XIII. Until I saw Borderlands for free on PS+.
Since I've heard so much, I downloaded it and have been absorbed ever since. That is my weekend.
I don't have that much college homework! I'm getting some new 3DS games today or tomorrow.
I'm spending my weekend most likely playing Dark Cloud. Just recently beat Darksiders 2, and Flower. But once Borderlands 2 hits, i doubt you'll see anything else in my system.
