The lights are on
Next week, most of the Game Informer team will be covering E3 from Los Angeles. Before we descend into madness, we're going to celebrate the weekend with achievement hunting, zombies, and some time outdoors.
Andrew Reiner: My weekend begins with that horrible Star Trek game. I don't know why (achievements), but I feel I need to complete it (really easy achievements). Next up on my stack is Remember Me, followed by State of Decay. I'm also going to plow through all of Breaking Bad: Season 5 on Blu-ray. On my flight to E3, I'm playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf and reading as many New 52 books as I can.
Jeff Cork: E3 is coming in a few days, in case you forgot. For that week, nearly every interaction I have will be focused around video games. I’m going to spend my brief weekend outside.
Kimberley Wallace: E3 is upon us, so I'm going to be spending this weekend packing and prepping for it. I’m looking forward to surprise announcements, hoping something I wasn’t expecting in the RPG realm pops up. I'm also trying to finish Metro: Last Light before I fly out for E3. Other than that, I'll be watching the Blackhawks game on Saturday. Hopefully, they put away the Kings, so I don't have to check my phone like a crazy girl during E3 for scores. Happiness is the Blackhawks winning the cup.
Ben Hanson: After finishing up the excellent Gunpoint and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, this weekend I hope to dive into State of Decay. I've heard some mixed opinions on the game, but I'm in the mood for some stupid open-world fun and the zombie/survival angle adds a nice twist. Outside of that, I'm going to continue playing Ron Gilbert's new match-three game on iOS called Scurvy Scallywags. I've played it for an hour or so and am really impressed, it is much better and much deeper than I imagined.
Mike Futter: On my six hour flight to E3 from New Jersey, I'll have some time to catch up on some portable titles. I've been meaning to dive back into Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (if only to hear his triumphant, 'I did it!'). Animal Crossing: New Leaf is waiting for me on my 3DS, also. On my Vita (yes, I still have it and I'm bringing it to E3), I just picked up Soul Sacrifice. I hear good things, and I'm interested to see how it plays. Finally, my iPad is home to Warhammer Quest and an as-yet unannounced title that has been captivating me.
I might not get much gaming done at E3, but my trip there is covered.
Matt Akers: I’m finally getting around to playing the Assassin’s Creed series. Just got my copy in the mail for Xbox. I also borrowed a friend’s DS for the summer, so I hope to finish 999 and get started on Pokémon Pearl. I may sleep some, too.
Brian Albert: Our review of State of Decay wasn’t shining, but I’m still going to check it out. Liz might continue her playthrough of L.A. Noire, so if she does I'll hang out and watch her destroy the beautiful city with her, um, spectacular driving skills. If I have extra time, I want to check out Scurvy Scallywags and Gunpoint.
Just started Remember Me no comment yet not enough time in to make an educated decision on overall quality. I will be trying to play through it fully so I can pick up The Last of Us next week. Very excited for that. Have a great weekend GI community.
Gamewise, mostly Remember Me, State of Decay, and DCK Returns on my 3DS. Other than that, my weekend will be full of Game of Thrones awesomeness. Finishing up A Clash of Kings finally and can't wait to see how intense the season finale is going to be. Hoping the show doesn't lose momentum after that crazy last episode.
Mass Effect 3,Batman Arkham City,Battlefield 3 and waiting for E3 monday
not much this weekend. probably just more Fire Emblem and Luigi's Mansion.
White Knight Chronicles II (New Game+) and Zelda: Oracle of Ages
Fallout 3, Bioshock Infinite, Skyrim and probably some Dishonored
Since i finally finished everything Skyrim has to offer and sent the Ebony Warrior to Sovengarde I'm going to be continuing in Call of Juarez Gunslinger and most likely starting up Blood Dragon. If I get tired of first person gunning I will continue my quest to finish Son of Sparda mode in DMC so I can access Heaven or Hell mode.
Going to play some of my backlog games plus a couple of new games while I wait for Animal Crossing New Leaf go arrive in the mail. Other than that I will probably watch some movies and some shows on the dvr have a great wk everyone.:)
State of Decay for me. It's not a polished game, just incredibly fun and addicting.
Just finished up god of war ascension. Don't want to be in the middle of anything when I start the last of us, so ill probably just go back and play the sleeping dogs DLC that I bought during some psn sale a while back. Also may try to finish the far cry 3 coop trophies for my platinum.
