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.
Hopefully some more SSBB this weekend.
Was supposed to be going out of town this weekend but that didn't pan out. So I guess I'll be playing Ni No Kuni (just started playing it a few days ago and I love it so far), probably Skyrim (I just can't stop playing that game), and watching my husband play Heavy Rain for the first time. So far I've been watching him play for the past 3 hours or so and it has been hilarious (he has a really sick sense of humor)! I just cant wait to see his face when he discovers who the real killer is.
Me..? I'll be playing inFamous. I always had it on my PS3 (for free because of the hacking in the summer of 2011), but I always thought it was way too hard. I really don't know why. But now, with all this hype about Second Son, I decided to try it out. And, well... with the end of school coming, it'll be a summer ritual to blast Reapers heads with thousands of volts of electricity!
fallout 3,madden 12, watching the spurs and waiting for e3
Spec Ops platinum (damn you chapter 13!) and Demon's Souls. PS+ is for winners.
Personally, you guys'll probably be seeing me continue my maddening New Vegas hours upon hours onslaught, getting some more Metro in (LL), enjoying Remember Me and finishing that review, itching to pick up State of Decay, and blogging incessantly about how much I need to get my copy of The Last of Us. ;-)
Playing Anodyne, Prime World: Defenders and Lords of Football this weekend.
I'm actually really busy this weekend. I have to take another ACT, and then were all going putt putt golfing. Gaming wise, I'm going to be playing God of war Ascension. Just got it and its pretty fun. I also got the last of us demo so I have that to do as well. Also Jordolo got Army of two devil cartel so I'll be doing that with him. So really ACT, Golfing, Last of us, God of war Ascension, and Army of two Devil cartel. Also preparing for E3. Can't wait. Next weekend, lets just say, it will be pretty clear cause one thing is I'm doing mostly. Just 6 days. 6 freakin days!
Red Dead, Dark Souls, Morrowind, and a few others in between.
Tomb Raider and State of Decay.
Phoenix Wright HD Trilogy on my IPad, might watch the live action movie for the first time if I get in the mood, and if I can I might try wrapping up Ni No Kuni.
My summary consists of. Game of Thrones Finale on Sunday. A MUST! other then that a 2nd playthrough of FFXIII and playing some more of Bioshock Infinite. Booker your a killer!
I won't have much time for gaming so I'll just prolly play a little Overlord II (maybe I can finish it). Other than that watching F1, Falling Skies season premier and Sony's PS4 reveal conference (haven't seen it yet, so this is the perfect time to do before E3... and the only time :P).
State of Decay will be the only game I will get the chance to play this weekend, I am pretty busy but I do have Monday off so I am happy I get to watch E3 all day long!
Traveling this weekend so ill just be playing my 3ds, felt like getting into a new harvest moon so I bought HM a new beginning, it's actually really fun and relaxing. But other than that, go Bruins!!!!!!
I'm on Injustice Gods among us. Love that game
I got the Humble Indie Bundle 8 this week so I'll be plowing through all the great games I have. Not to mention playing some Civ V G&K multiplayer with my friend to warm up for A Brave New World.
Just waiting for 9:00 PM tomorrow, because that's when I can download New Leaf, and start my new life...
Rayman and Sly 3. Maybe some Oracle of Ages too.
I'm definitely going to play State of Decay, and will probably play some Splinter Cell Conviction with some friends. Other than that I may go out and buy TC: Ghost Recon Future Soldier. One of my friends just picked it up for $20 so I may buy it just for some fun 3rd person shooter action.
