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.
Warriors Lair came out today on Vita, so I will ber playing that, and maybe some Killzone 2 or 3.
Mass Effect 3
Etrian Odyssey 4 and Spec Ops: The Line. Also, waiting for Tomb Raider!
The Walking Dead Episode 5. Like a great book, I don't want this to end.
Hopefully finishing up MGR: Revengeance and also some legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Advent Rising. Oh and finally watch Argo.
Knocked off DmC and Sly Cooper recently, so it's time for me to get some new games! And by "get" new games, I mean "move onto other games in the stack I have next to PS3 that I need to play"! So, I'll probably move onto Valkyria Chronicles and Eternal Sonata. Or perhaps Dishonored and XCOM.
playing through Dead Space 3. So far I'm loving it.
I just bought Crysis (Xbox 360, having a lot of fun but the movement is way too slow) and inFamous: Festival of Blood so I'll be playing those. I'll also hop on Halo 4 to play the new DLC FFA playlist (the new maps are amazing).
Persona 4 Golden, for sure. Finally picked up Mark of the Ninja on Steam so maybe I'll give that a go, but really outside of P4G, it'll depend on what I'm in the mood to play.
Finished Xenoblade Chronicles at long last--longest play time of any single playthrough of a game for me, ever. Finished Borderlands 2 with the girlfriend.
Downloaded The Cave on the Wii U and trying to finish Uncharted 2 on PS3.
I will (hopefully) finally be able to finish the Walking Dead game. I never was able to play Ep. 5 due to a glitch, but my boyfriend found a way to fix it the other day. So I finally get to see what all the game of the year commotion was about.
Finished Dead Space 3, so might just mess about in Far Cry 3 until Tomb Raider arrives. Also have to move all the furniture back into the correct positions after building work in my living room.
I just recently finished Dead Space 3 and I give it a 10 out of 10, amazing game, I didn't want it to end. I also just recently got back into Witcher 2 in anticaption for Witcher 3, what a great game. But I will most likely spend most of my time playing Mass Effect 3 multiplayer, it is sooo addicting and I must say that I don't think that I've played a better multiplayer. My N7 rank is somewhere in the 300's and I still have all kinds of weapons and characters to unlock. Thanks Bioware you all did a wonderfull job on the game..keep it up.
Again DmC was off track last week, and play GoW Ascension demo again game looks awesome :)
Gonna try to get some Metal Gear Rising in, but hopefully get to beat DS3 in co-op and maybe I'll finally get around to playing Dishonored
I'll be completing my second playthrough of Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3. Some GTA IV and maybe Skyrim.
