The lights are on
It’s the weekend again, and that means it’s time to unwind. Some editors will finally take a stab at the new Tomb Raider game. Others are going back in time to play some Super Nintendo greats, and a Dragon Ball Z role-playing game.
Jason Pfitzer: This weekend I will be trying my utmost to beat The Lion King for SNES. That, and I'm starting Chrono Trigger finally.
Ben Hanson: This weekend I'm going to continue playing Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm. The mission design remains fantastic and, despite dopey writing, I'm curious to see where the story goes. Other than that, I just checked out Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans from our game vault. It's the DS RPG from Monolith Soft that I never finished. I’m looking forward to starting over and finishing it; the game feels like a great DBZ RPG for the SNES. Acronym. Have a good weekend!
Tim Turi: This weekend I’m putting aside my recent quests in Dead Space 3 and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance for Tomb Raider. I’m oddly fascinated by protagonists that get the crap kicked out of them but persevere (e.g. Die Hard, Die Hard 2, Die Hard with a Vengeance, Live free or Die Hard). I’m really digging the interesting environmental puzzles and experimentation-friendly combat.
Jeff Marchiafava: The Humble Bundle folks managed to get me to buy another mix of awesome indie games, so this weekend I’ll probably be playing more PC games. For someone who doesn’t own a decent gaming PC, I now have over 30 games on my Steam account. I’m ready to buy a Steam Box whenever you want to start selling them, Valve…
Louis Garcia: I am still recovering from illness, but I may be able to remain somewhat awake long enough to play some FIFA online. I’m sick of crushing defeats, but I’m in the soccer mood after missing so many pick-up games because of my virus, and watching a Minnesota United FC preseason match this week, as well as Champions League matches. I’m also going to be visualizing monster-smiting strategies in my head before Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate comes out for the Wii U next week. I bought my console the other week (getting a great deal I might add) just for this game.
Kyle Hilliard: All I’ve been wanting to do since I’ve started it, is play Tomb Raider. As a fan of the show Lost, platforming, and environmental physics puzzles, I just want to keep jumping back in. It’s the kind of game that has been forcing me to stay up past my bedtime. This weekend, I plan on playing as much as I can. Also, I guess I should hang some curtains in our new home, but that’s secondary!
More Uncharted! I can see the end of the backlog!
Midterms coming up again (sigh), so I got a lot of studying to do. Going to see if I could squeeze in some Tomb Raider and a couple episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Now that Persona 2: Eternal Punishment is finally playable on the Vita, I'm suddenly motivated to finish Persona 2: Innocent Sin. I'll also continue exploring the huge labyrinths in Etrian Odyssey 4.
Chrono Trigger! :D
I was going to buy God of war Ascension, but I'm gonna wait this one out for a price drop, it doesn't look like it has that god of war feel you know? Plus new Gears Of War comes out Tuesday...I may pick that one up, but then there's also Tomb Raider....life of a gamer....
Enjoying my last 2 days of Spring Break. Till then, try to plat Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus, play EO IV, and Neptuinia mk2.
Will continue playing through Fallout: New Vegas. Not sure how I feel about it yet. When not considering the bugs, I would say that it is better than Fallout 3. The problem is that it really just feels like more Fallout 3 and doesn't really feel like it's own game. It's kind of just one huge expansion pack. I loved Fallout 3, but I played it so much that I'm kind of sick of it. Wanted something new, and New Vegas does not qualify.
Probably going to play Minecraft 360, and hopefully I'll get my Gears Judgment early access code tonight as well:)
