The lights are on
This weekend many of us are tackling back log titles like Batman: Arkham City, Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned, and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. What about you? Let us know in the comments below.
Jeff Marchiafava: This weekend I’ll be jumping back into the zombie apocalypse with The Walking Dead: 400 Days and more State of Decay. I also have the urge to revisit one of the countless games I haven’t finished. XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Batman: Arkham City are two recent games in my pile of shame, but maybe I’ll go way back to Skyrim or Fallout 3.
Kyle Hilliard: I really want to try and get started on EarthBound. For the past few months, I have been playing Candy Crush on my phone before falling asleep in bed. The Wii U GamePad stretches to the bedroom, and I want EarthBound to be my new before bed game. It will be familiar, but I think a long enough time has passed where I won’t remember the majority of the game, making it close to a new experience.
Tim Turi: I just finished my first sorely delayed playthrough of GTA IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony. I figured I’d cruise right onto The Lost and Damned, but I’ve been sidetracked by Rogue Legacy. The Castlevania-esque gameplay, generational progression, quirky inherited traits, and fun aesthetic have me hooked. I know what I’ll be playing this weekend.
Liz Lanier: After finishing Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (and thoroughly enjoying it) this week, I’m not sure what to tackle next. I’m thinking I will try to take on the next installments in the series to prepare for Dual Destinies. But, I’m open to suggestions from GI readers for what game I should play this weekend.
Brian Albert: I watched all three seasons of Game of Thrones recently (and started reading the books), so I'm really craving a great fantasy RPG right now. I haven't played The Witcher 2 yet, but I bought it during a Steam Sale. Maybe this is the weekend I'll finally jump in.
Completed the light campaign of Sacred 2 yesterday. So I'll either do some trophy hunting and start my dark campaign in S2 or... maybe start up GTA IV (Everyone seems to be doing it so why not join the fun. Although I'm not doing it in anticipation of GTA V... I'm gonna wait with that game for a while).
Saturday is the last day for DmC week. Not much progress the damn demons are causing me to get tantrums and pulling my hair -.- But Sunday time to get serious and get FF13 finish gotta end these backlogs. And also gonna keep playing ac2 I'm close to the fly swatter trophy 100% here I come! >:D
Still working through the side quests on Skyrim; all the glitches are starting to get pretty annoying, but the game is too awesome for me to stop playing despite this.
Fifa 13, Dynasty Warriors 8, and maybe a little Pokemon to tide me over until X and Y.
After finally playing the Borderlands 2 DLC, my brother and I are working through the campaign again. Also, I plan on buying a new laptop for "school" this weekend, should greatly boost my PC gaming abilities. And I plan on either mountain biking or going to a jazz fest on Sunday (maybe both) which should be sweet either way.
Rogue Legacy, Super Meat Boy, Far Cry 3, Dark Souls, The Last of Us, Injustice, Borderlands 2 and much much more!
Mostly a Vita weekend with Zero Escape, Blaze Blue, Soul Calibur, Sly Cooper, and Guacamelee. Also some PS3 time with Dark Souls, Xcom, and Red Dead.
I'll be playing more Borderlands 2, watching Soul Eater, and a bunch of stuff that I have on my DVR.
Dynasty warriors 8, when I'm not packing. If I somehow burn myself out on it, Disgaea 3. But I've played through every single DW, SW, and WO game a million times, so I sincerely doubt that this one will be any different. I imagine it will remain firmly ensconced in my PS3 for weeks to come, much like all its predecessors. As for my PSP, I'm feeling a return to Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2 Extend. COULD I be any more of a fan girl?
I'll be playing Skate. Yep, thats right. As in the first game! I've worked my way down from Skate 3 back to the first game and I have thoroughly enjoyed each entry but I wish that Skate 2 had had a longer set of challenges and that Skate 3 would have had longer DLC. And I am sorely missing some tricks that are not available in the first entry. Along with that I might dip back into Halo 3 multiplayer! I just bought the Mythic and Legendary map packs and will play around with those. I still think this is the best Halo game period. In my spare time I will probably play around with Pet Rescue Saga on my phone which I am enjoying a lot more than Candy Crush Saga!
I am taking advantage of the Steam sale there are a couple of games I am interested in. So I am going to divide my time between the 3ds and the PC I have a huge backlog of games for both. So that will be my day tomorrow playing games and watching tv as the heat wave continues here in the North East. Fingers crossed for relief from the heat on Sunday have a super wk end everyone happy gaming.:)
In between work, I'm going to finish up The Last of Us. After that, I don't know. I have a few options. I've got Saint's Row 3 and The Walking Dead sitting around, waiting to be played. But I've also got a Wii now courtesy of my brother, who gave me the Wii after he bought a Wii U. So I got close to a dozen Wii games to play as well. I may have to crack open one of those.
I will be continuing my first time playthrough of Dark Souls. I never really had a desire to get into the Souls games since all I heard was their difficulty and usually I don't care for that type of game but I really wanted a fantasy game and got it brand new on the cheap. The game has me hooked in with the nice tactical combat and overall feel of the world. I have 3 characters I am swapping across (Warrior, Wanderer, and Pyromancer) and I will be bouncing around those guys while I explore the world.
This weekend marks the 3rd week of my 31/31, so I will continue working hard to churning out the blogs as I approach the climax of my blogg'in ideas. I'm still equally hard at work on Final Fantasy IX in between Animal Crossing: New Leaf and spurts of Tekken Revolution. I also want to get around to playing Ace Attorney, but fear I may not have the time to REALLY start it like I planned last weekend. I may also try and get to snooz'in earlier as well and enjoy my introduction to Stargate Universe's first season. Audios and crush the mighty backlog!
If you haven't seen it yet, go see one of the coolest movies ever, Pacific Rim, it is AMAZING!!!! The action in it beats Avengers in every way.
I finally got platinum of Final Fantasy XIII! Right now I'm working on getting trophies of Devil May Cry 2, and in this time, now I'm watching Kamen Rider Decade. XD
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Black Ops 2, and a little World of Tanks Xbox beta.
Been playing Sly Cooper Thieves In Time on my vita, I think my wife is going to big me the COD for my vita also. I'm sure my son will have me playin Vice City on his ps2 and I also might play Unchated 3.
