The lights are on
The first of March transitions quickly to the weekend, and there will be plenty of gaming going on. One editor is playing Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, while others are going back to games they haven't enjoyed in a while.
Kayla Herrera: After writing my feature on Alice: Madness Returns, I plan on reinstalling it on my laptop and playing through it again. I love a good, whimsical journey into the mind of a madwoman.
Ben Hanson: This weekend I'll continue zoning out to podcasts and playing Runner 2 on my Wii U. It's nice to play that thing, even if the battery life of the Game Pad repeatedly cuts off my playtime. Oh, and that game is great. Other than that, I'll probably continue playing Starcraft 2's campaign and whatever else floats my way. Have a good weekend!
Kyle Hilliard: My family has officially moved from our old home, and we now live in a cardboard box fort inside of our new home. This weekend, I hope to play a video game. Outside of mobile distractions, I have not been able to play a game for personal gratification for quite a while. The TV is set up, and the Xbox is plugged in though, so the only thing in my way is exhaustion. Otherwise, I will still be unpacking.
Jeff Marchiafava: Once again, last week’s plans went off the rails; while I managed to put a couple of hours into FTL, a weekend screening of Dredd got me in the mood for blowing up a bunch of crap in a science-fiction setting. Solution? Red Faction: Guerrilla. I was about 75 percent through the game when I got sidetracked by other games back in 2010 and never went back to it. After a rough relearning phase last weekend, I was back to razing huge buildings with my trusty sledgehammer (and a rocket or two… or 10). This weekend’s plans include a little more FTL, and a lot more Guerrilla. More games need physics-based destruction!
Matt Kato: Undoubtedly going to spend some time on FIFA 13 again this weekend, mainly in some of the various online modes. Of course, online play is its own ecosystem with its own vagaries and styles of play. I've never been a huge online player, so this will be me more acclimating myself to everyone's tricks of the trade as much as it will be about winning. I also have it in my head to get better at my free kicks on goal. There are always those times in a game's lifecycle when I rediscover my love for it in a new way, whether that's exploring a new mode or refining my gameplay. It's always nice when you can say that about a title you've spent your hard-earned money on.
Louis Garcia: After convincing Kato to join my FIFA 13 Pro Clubs team, I think some more online soccer may happen this weekend. After his performance in our first two games I’d say we signed a great player – I just hope he doesn’t become a wantaway midfielder seeking a bigger and better club because to be honest, most seasons we’re in a relegation battle. Seriously – we make the English Premier League’s Queens Park Rangers look like Manchester City. Other than that, I will play some pick-up soccer and hope my knee doesn’t get too sore. If it does, I always have Battlestar Galactica waiting for me.
I'm hoping to get further in Darksiders 1 and maybe DNF.
Im finally gonna get back into Dishonored, its been waiting to be finished for a long time.
I'm replaying Drawn to Life.
Cyris 3 multiplayer is very fun besides that some Blops 2 a lil NBA 2k13 and maybe some Arkham City
I'll be continuing my second playthrough of Amnesia: The Dark Descent with the developer commentary on this time (more games need to do this.) I also downloaded Penumbra: Overture off of Steam and I may start that sometime this weekend as well.
Let's see what I'll be doing...
a) Enjoying some more of Crysis 3.
b) Trying and failing to allot an equal amount of tiem to Metal gear Rising: Revengeance as well.
c) Blogging on GIO, posting to Tumblr, and exploring elsewhere online.
d) Enjoying myself and not worrying about going to work on Monday, because of a well-earned respite.
That's my game plan.
ME 3,Halo 4,RDR,Skyrim and forza horizon,hoping tuesday comes quick
Guerilla is always a prime candidate for blowing a weekend on.
Hitting the soccer fields saturday; gaming wise idk im determined to get better at ssf4 ae but I just cant play on my own; I need someone nxt to me talking trash or a created lobby with 4 or 5 of us talking trash lol. Anyways I'm starting my 4th play through of RDR love that game and will get to some Bastion on that game plus mode and maybe I'll throw a lil bit of halo 4 multiplayer for an hour or so.
Grabbed Tom Clancy's HAWX for $5 and it's surprisingly pretty good (though that OFF system is really dumb), so I'll plug away at that. It's also reignited my interest in flight sims/action games, so I've been thinking about going back to Ace Combat: Liberation and Birds of Prey and dusting off the flight stick. Other than that, some Halo 4 and Dead Space 3.
Probably going to watch Twitch user Stivitybobo speedrun Banjo-Kazooie and attempt to beat his own world record. If you like speedruns or Banjo, do yourself a favor and check him out. It's super cool to see some of the stuff he does to beat the game in about 2 and a half hours. Other than that, I FINALLY got a copy of Fire Emblem: Awakening, which means I won't be seeing the sun till Monday morning. Have a good one, everybody!
Patiently waiting for Tuesday so I can play Tomb Raider. Also pretty interested to see how this Assassin's Creed Pirates in gonna work on Monday. Gaming wise it will be Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 with some possible Dead Space trickled in. Also bought Journey with some free PS store credit I recieved for re-upping my PS Plus subscription.
I hope to finish up Doom 3 BFG for PC; which is a great game btw, still very fun. After that I'm not too sure, maybe finish this Professor Layton and the Unwound Future I've been puttering through. It'll be a relaxing weekend overall.
I just opened Etrian Odyssey IV and can't wait to start playing. Other than that I'm going to make more progress in Ni No Kuni which I think I'm about halfway through.
I'm gonna play some WWE All Stars (I have some wrestlers to unlock). Also, I may finally start LA Noire!
