The lights are on
While editors morn the fact that we can't play SimCity, we've managed to find a few other things to occupy our time, such as Tomb Raider and cardboard box fort construction.
Tim Turi: This
weekend I know what I should play. I should beat Metal Gear Rising:
Revengeance because I’m a fan of the franchise and I want this game
under my belt. I know what I want to play, which is Tomb Raider. I’m
really excited about playing a character that gets the crap kicked out
of them but still perseveres (e.g. John McClane). But I’ll probably just
end up playing more The Secret of Monkey Island and Brütal Legend. Am I
Kyle Hillaird: We’re still disassembling our cardboard box fort after the recent move, but it’s starting to feel like a comfortable home that I can play video games in. I still need to finish Antichamber and Devil May Cry, but it is becoming increasingly difficult to hold off on Tomb Raider while I finish up those other games. Otherwise I will be sleeping and eating, but not at the same time.
Jeff Marchifava: This weekend I want to get back into FTL – I’m still halfway through my first campaign, and my crew isn’t just going to kill itself. After I fail to survive my trip through deep space, I’ll probably go back to blowing crap up in Red Faction: Guerrilla, because I find it cathartic. Maybe I need a vacation.

I plan on finishing up Dead Island with my brother this weekend and going with my friend tomorrow to his college's student orientation.
This weekend I'll be completing my third playthrough of Mass Effect 2, finishing GTA IV, starting a new Mass Effect 3 playthrough, and completing the Dragonborn DLC questline.
I'm going to wish I didn't spend $60 on SimCity inbetween some Battlefield 3, Tomb Raider, and Bit Trip Runner 2.
Been playing One Piece: Pirate Warriors almost nonstop since a few days ago, and don't really see that changing. Then again, I might start Okami at some point over the weekend. Also hoping to finish up The Shadow Rising.
I just started playing Xcom and I'm enjoying it alot more than I thought I would. Probably gonna play it as much as possible this weekend as well as completing the co op missions on dead space 3.
Most likely going to play Minecraft with some friends in between continuing my second play through of Red Dead Redemption and AC III. I really want to get SimCity, but I have to wait a little bit longer for the Mac version.
Probably finish Tomb Raider.
Between cabellas in the am and oz at night im gonna hack some limbs off zombies in dead island, such a fun game cant believe i ddnt get it earlier! Maybe some max payne multi, starting to get bit stale tho. And if all fails maybe bully
DmC Vergil's Downfall and Reading a book :)
This weekend I'll be continuing my complete rewatch of the whole Mad Men series in preparation for the new season next month. I'm also gonna try and finish the latest book in A Song of Ice and Fire. Maybe Ill throw in some AC3 multiplayer or some free MMOs on Steam. Just trying to keep busy until the new God of War next week!
