The lights are on
The weather in Minnesota is still chilling to the bone, so there will be a lot of gaming going on this weekend. Someone promises to finally continue Far Cry 3, while others will visit the frights of Dead Space 3 – as well as the frighteningly horrible Aliens: Colonial Marines.
Ben Hanson: This weekend I'm going to start playing Ni No Kuni. I'm not the most excited for the game, but maybe I'm just slightly burned out on RPGs. On top of that, I recently started playing Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty's campaign for the second time in preparation for Heart of the Swarm. I loved that game when it came out in 2010, and the campaign has held up remarkably well. Play it now. Alright, have a good weekend!
Jeff Marchiafava: Last weekend I tried to use reverse psychology to get myself back into Far Cry 3. Turns out it didn’t work – I just ended up playing a bunch of pinball instead. In addition to Ubisoft’s open-world shooter, I’ve also got The Witcher 2 on my plate for this weekend. Which game will win out? Probably pinball.
Jeff Cork: I’m planning on playing some more Sleeping Dogs this weekend. It was one of those games I didn’t spend much time with, and I’m enjoying it a lot. I might pick up Dead Space 3, too. That one seems like another one of those polarizing titles, and I always like to see what’s going on with those types of games for myself.
Kyle Hilliard: I like to play games is alphabetical order, which is why after finishing up Dead Space 3, I can finally start Devil May Cry. I also need to finish Antichamber, which breaks my alphabetical pattern. Never mind.
Andy McNamara: PlanetSide 2 and Dead Space 3 will rule this weekend, with a fair amount of Clash of Clans when necessary. In an odd twist, we have some game developer guests in town this weekend, so going to hang out with them and perhaps see a super secret game. What can I say? I'm willing to go the extra mile and "work" on the weekend.
Andrew Reiner: I have a busy weekend planned. Kelly and I are still trucking through Ni no Kuni. I would imagine we're over halfway done with the game. We're playing it at a slow pace – finishing all of the side quests and obtaining as many monsters as we can. When we aren't playing that game, my time is going to Dead Space 3 (which I love), and two games I'm firing up for the first time: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and Aliens: Colonial Marines.
Matthew Kato: Hope to be digging into Far Cry 3 some more. I'm not that far into the game, but I can already see some of its potential. I'm hoping to be surprised even still! I've been nibbling around the edges of the game, and hope to get substantial enough time this weekend to really explore it.
Louis Garcia: My girlfriend is coming up from southern Wisconsin, so that means we’ll be enjoying some Dead Space: Extraction and LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7. Since we just rewatched the Alien movies, as well as Prometheus, we may also rent Aliens: Colonial Marines just to see how terrible it is. We had such high hopes for the lovable Chestbursters!
Kayla Herrera: Since failing to find the missing Xbox copy of Silent Hill 2 that was delivered to my house, I plan on spending the weekend getting back into Borderlands 2 on my PC. Back when I had to review it, I played it for hours and hours. There is so much to do, and so many side quests that it never gets tedious.
Well, I got midterms coming up. So I have to get started on that :(. Otherwise, I'll continue my run of Final Fantasy 7. Man, I never realized how boring those Fort Condor battles are. I might just skip them all until the mandatory one for the huge materia.
I'll be playing lots of Fire Red and Mass Effect on the SP side, and for MP, Trouble in Terrorist Town with friends.
Dead Space 3, and some Fire Emblem.
Im doing the exact same Kayla! I got Borderlands 2 during the steam sale and have been playing it every night for the past week. So much fun! I also plan on playing some more Fire Emblem: Awakening and some Dead Space 3
Nothing much this weekend, I am just waiting for Metal Gear Rising to come out in a few days.
I will be continuing my quest to beat Dark Souls. This is my 2nd play through and it is going much better than last time.
When I can't take Dark Souls anymore I will play some Halo 4 and Fez.
Dead Space 3 (great game), the usual Black Ops 2, and Halo 4 Spartan Ops :)
I'm going to complete Eragon on hard with my brother and going to finish up Hydrophobia. Tomorrow I'm going over to a friend's party so I'll probably won't remember much.
Maybe a bit of Just Cause 2, BLOPS2, and dirt3/forza
MGS HD Collection, Ni No Kuni, Spyro the Dragon, Fire Emblem Awakening, and anything else I get the chance to play.
