It's an extended holiday weekend, and we plan to use that extra time to better ourselves and the playing games.

Jeff Cork: I downloaded Call of Juarez: Gunslinger last night, and I’ll probably blow through it over the weekend. After that, I’m going to play some more Resident Evil 6. I’ve only put 30 or so minutes into it now, and I’m hoping that I get to the part that made everyone so mad. I’m also in the home stretch on Dead Island, so I may as well wrap that one up. Also, grilling.

Ben Hanson: This weekend I'll be hanging out in a cabin on a lake, so I'm planning on spending some quality time with my 3DS and the new (unreleased) Animal Crossing. Other than that, I might bring my iPad and catch up on some of the new games from Firaxis.

Kyle Hilliard: I finished off Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate recently, a game that had been staring up at me from my backlog like a sad puppy. Now it’s time to pick from the rest of my litter/back-log for a new game. Otherwise, I picked up Cloud Atlas and would like to watch that, and want to get caught up on Veep. On Sunday, however, it’s time for new Arrested Development. I’m still undecided if I want to watch the whole series in one sitting, or space them out. I’m leaning towards the latter.
