The lights are on
Spring finally showed up to Minnesota, but you could have fooled us, because we're still playing inside like there's snow on the ground (actually there still is). This weekend we dig into our backlogs.
Jeff Cork: We’re recovering from our fourth winter-inside-a-winter here in Minnesota, so I’m going to try to enjoy the outdoors if I can. If not, I’m going to dig back into Skyrim. I’m playing as a summoner-type mage, and I’ve probably forgotten all of the controls by now. I expect to see lots of funny ragdoll deaths as I struggle to relearn everything. I’m going to see if I can’t get into Need for Speed: Most Wanted as well. While cars don’t flop around as hilariously in that one, failure is still rewarded.
Tim Turi: I popped in Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen not having played the original game. Despite the game’s complexity and lack of direction, I think I may continue to dive deeper. The combat and huge monsters are enough to keep me engaged. When I emerge on the other side of this weekend I’m sure I’ll know whether I’m in it for the long run or I’ll bring it back to the GI Vault.
Ben Hanson: This weekend I hope to finish off Luigi's Mansion for the 3DS, I've really been enjoying the game so far. It surpasses Super Mario 3D Land as my favorite game for the system. Other than that, I've got a wicked game of Neptune's Pride 2 going for some other editors so I'll continue to check in on our epic RTS space battle. I also plan on playing Playstation All-Stars, I'm embarrassed that it has taken me so long to get around to this one since Smash Bros. is one of my favorite series in gaming. Have a good weekend!
Jeff Marchiafava: This weekend I’ll be trying to get back into the swing of Tomb Raider, and spend some more time with BattleBlock Theater as well. Basically, I just hope I don’t sit around all weekend playing Super Stickman Golf 2 like I did most of this week. Not that I’m complaining about SSG 2, mind you…
Mike Futter: Believe it or not, I'm still playing Defiance. This weekend, I'm also going to put in a little bit of time with Borderlands. Whether I'll be doubling back to play DLC I missed in Borderlands 1 or finally getting underway in Borderlands 2 is anyone's guess. I've also got a real itch to play XCOM: Enemy Unknown again after writing the first story on The Bureau: XCOM Declassified last night.

Hanson, Luigi's Mansion is your favorite game for 3DS? Have you played Fire Emblem: Awakening? If not please do so it is one of my favorite games of all time, not just 3DS.
After adding a ton more PSN Points to my virtual wallet, I've been going download happy and enjoying Okami, among other things. I love the game's gorgeous art and running around biting people as a killer wolf god never felt so good. Beyond playing that, I might start up Journey this weekend, but only if I feel I have the time to completely finish it and not have any interruptions. On the not-so-fun side, I also have a history paper to write, so my game time's gonna a part of a very precarious balance between wolfing it up with Amatarasu and writing about a bunch of old Greek guys. Have a good weekend everyone!
Anyone ever play R.U.S.E.?
PS All Stars is worth it Ben.
Killzone 3, Heavy Rain, Dark Souls, and NBA 2k13.
I just bought a Wii u this week so I plan to stick to that system, alternating between Monster Hunter, Mario u and Assassins Creed 3, happy gaming all.
Starting The Walking Dead, hope I'm not disappointed, the show never did it for me and I'm only trying the game because I've heard it has a fantastic story from sources I trust.
Now that I've beaten Dishonored, I don't really know what to play. I could always go back and play the original Bioshock. I have been playing Mario 64 on the Virtual Console, so maybe I'll continue that. Or maybe I can go back and play one of the many rpgs in my collection that I haven't played yet.
More Defiance; more 2k13; more BO2; more NBA playoffs whenever I can watch & I might try and check out Pain & Gain.
More Fire Emblem and Dead Island 1 for me.
Terraria. So much Terraria. Also some Star Trek here and there.
