The lights are on
This weekend we won't let silly things like obligations and responsibilities get in the way of our gaming time. We're trucking across rural Germany, surviving the zombie apocalypse, and booking some time with our beloved handhelds. What about you? Let us know what you're playing in the comments below!
Ben Hanson: This weekend my sister is getting married, which is a huge bummer because it eats into my gaming time. She's a selfish monster. I hope to squeeze in some Animal Crossing here and there. Have you heard of that game yet? Also, I borrowed a racing wheel from the office and am playing a lot of Euro Truck Simulator 2 on my PC. I know it sounds lame, but slowly and carefully driving a semi across Germany has its moments. Maybe we can record a Test Chamber of the game and role-play as a driver and hitchhiker or something. Have a good weekend!
Jeff Marchiafava: My gaming plans for last weekend got derailed by babysitting and house work (when did I become an adult? This wasn’t part of the plan!), so this weekend I hope to actually get to The Walking Dead: 400 Days and play more State of Decay. By now I’m sure my settlement has been completely ravaged by zombies, and I’ll spend most of the time babysitting NPCs and doing chores to maintain my safe house…wait a minute…
Tim Turi: For the past week I’ve been into Rogue Legacy. I intend to finish the addictive, roguelike platformer, but it’s getting a little repetitive right now. This weekend it may be replaced with some Shadowrun Returns, however. I dig the game’s XCOM-like combat and engrossing sci-fi/fantasy hybrid story. The environment reminds me of Blade Runner, which is a world I want to be lost in all the time.
I will start EarthBound.Dragon’s Crown will follow that.More Picross e2.
Mike Futter: This weekend, I'll be revisting Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD for a game club podcast with friends. I'll also be playing more State of Decay, working through the STAR Labs missions in Injustice: Gods Among Us, and taking on the kids in some Super Smash Bros. Brawl. If time permits, I'll also dive into something on my 3DS and/or Vita.
Brian Albert: Instead of playing The Witcher 2 last weekend, I finished The Last of Us. Considering I've heard spoilers discussed around the Game Informer office, this was probably a wise decision. I couldn't get into Red Dead Redemption when I first played it, but I think I might not have given it the chance it deserved. I'll start it this weekend if I can find a cheap copy somewhere.
The Last of Us MP. It's great!
Last night I picked up Shadowrun Returns after listening to the GI Show discussing it. I've been playing constantly and my goal is to finish this weekend, even while making time to go see the Wolverine with a lady friend. If I finish Shadowrun it'll be on to the Walking Dead which I picked up during the Steam Summer Sale but haven't dove into yet.
I just have one trophy to go for Dark Souls, so I'm going to be gunning for it. After that I'm going to be playing more Darksiders 2, I got it way back when it first came out, but there were so many releases at that time I got sidetracked and never came back. I love the music of it, and even though the graphics get wonky sometimes, it's still a fun game.
I plan on finishing Half Life 2 and maybe starting up the witcher 2. I may also continue Mark of the Ninja and hopefully I dont play Civilization V because I lose track of time way to much.
Second playthrough of TLoU, new game + on hard.
Still playing FF13 series or just FF13 gonna continue to next week. This game is honestly frustrating to level up and upgrade asap but I still love the series I can't believe I'm close to finishing FF13-2 than FF13 the cruel irony ._.
I'm going to be playing ACII this weekend, and maybe I'll dive into State of Decay again. Otherwise, I will probably end up playing something completely unexpected when I see a bunch of friends playing something.
NCAA Football 14 dynasty mode, FIFA 13, and GTAIV. Sunday I'm gonna watch the CONCACAF Final US vs Panama. Not sure yet what else I'll get into but plenty of games on backlog I need to clear up.
I'm playing Borderlands 2, mowing yards, and watching Soul eater.
I'll try to beat a particularly difficult level in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and then I will also play some Animal Crossing, Monster Hunter, and Game and Wario.
I have Shadowrun Returns, Rouge Legacy and Serious Sam 3: BFE on tap this weekend.
I'll be playing more Darksiders 2, Battleblock Theater, Just Cause 2 & trying to decide if I want to start a new AC3 game since my 130+ hour save has been corrupted. I may also try my hand at playing Evony. I'm going river rafting tomorrow so after that I'll finish up season 2 of Breaking Bad & marathon season 3.
Ncaa 14, dishonored and a little dark arisen. And some kinda multiplayer, halo 4 or me3.
Finally got that gaming rig I've been wanting for awhile, the best part is i got it when the steam sale started so i bought a couple of games lol. So for me this weekened I'll be hitting up The Witcher 2, Chivalry warfare (I like this game alot!), and tomb Raider if i can get it to install for some reason I can only get it to about half way then steam crashes its really annoying, if somebody knows what the problem might be, some help would be deeply appreciated THANX! Some other games I bought on steam are Bastion b/c its awesome, and Natural Selection 2.
Maybe I'll get back to Persona 3, or Bioshock 2.
Don't really have any new games to play, so I'm just sticking with Black Ops 2. It's double xp weekend after all. I'll spend most of my time watching It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia though. Just started watching this show and I feel ashamed of myself that I'm only now discovering it.
Euro Truck Sim is a blast! Highly recommend a gamepad and mapping look to right stick and turn signals to left /right dpad.
I will (hopefully) make some progress on Red Dead Redemption. That game is a monster.
