The lights are on
Now that E3 is over, we finally have time to catch up with The Last of Us. Unfortunately, the excitement from last week might have been too much for our news editor, Mike Futter.
Mike Futter: This weekend I will be choking people in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and decorating my house in The Last of Us. I think I have that right...
Tim Turi: I just beat The Last of Us last night and have been processing the game’s subtle, mature story ever since. So with that grim experience behind me, I turn my eyes to the feel-good experiences of State of Decay and Metro: Last Light. Thank god I’ve been consistently immersed in the colorful saccharine world of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, otherwise these would be dark days for my gaming routine.
Kyle Hilliard: When I am not nursing my Picross e addiction, I will be skipping through the wastelands of America with Joel and Ellie in The Last of Us. I also need to finish up the new Arrested Development season, and watch the last episode of Game of Thrones. We were in Los Angeles for E3 when it aired.
Ben Hanson: This weekend I'm going to be playing a lot more State of Decay. It's janky, but it's an unbelievable survival RPG on the 360. I'm really, really enjoying it. Other than that, I'll probably buy turnips from a boar or something in Animal Crossing.
Jeff Marchiafava: This weekend is going to be all about surviving the apocalypse. I’m about halfway through The Last of Us, and hope to finish that up – I’m enjoying the game so much I might even check out the multiplayer. I already want to try another playthrough of the game on a harder difficulty, but before I jump back in, I’m going to check out State of Decay. I followed the development of the game for over a year, and with E3 behind us, I look forward to finally getting to play it.
Matt Akers: I’m replaying KOTOR for the iPad now, and my goal for the weekend is to finish my romance with Bastila. She’s much sassier than I remembered, and I kind of like it.
Brian Albert: I’m only three or four hours into The Last of Us, so I need to finish that before I move on to anything else. I think enough people have talked about State of Decay that I’m now obligated to check it out.
Gonna play some good 'ole RDR and might even make a return to CoD.
Speaking of TLoU, I need to churn out my review sometime soon...
Hoping my copy of Last of Us will arrive this weekend...
I think I may pick up Animal Crossing: New Leaf after work because my friends/co-workers won't stop bringing it up and I'm getting increasingly jealous. I've actually never played anything in the series, but I've been told you only have to play for 15 minutes or so to get you through everything you can do that day, which is attractive to me; some days I won't play any video games because I don't feel like sitting down for 2+ hours to make a significant dent in my gaming process, so it'd be nice to have something to play every day.
I'll be playing The Last of Us pretty much exclusively.
This has been a much needed break from the busiest week of school work I've had all year and am using every moment to soak in The Last Of Us. I don't think I've played a game with such an intense and emotional opening scene. Other than that I decided to take a little trip down memory lane with Locoroco 2 on my vita (they really need to make a new one designed for the vita) and Condemned 2: Bloodshot
Last of Us is unbelievable.
Well I went to see World War Z on Friday and also picked up Batman Arkham City, so looks like I'll be playing that this weekend!!!
Just finished the last of us and I have to say bravo to naughty dog they may have created the game that defines this generation of consoles easily the game of the year nothing is even close WOW !
All of thesse games sound cool
