The lights are on
We're kicking off August right by clearing our backlogs, diving into undead drama, and getting reacquainted with some of the best indie titles of the past year. Also, one intern might have to spend another semester in school, though she probably has no objection to that.
Andrew Reiner: My sister is in town from Paris with her son, Sammy. Odds are, I'll only have short gaming sessions, which means Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Nintendo Street Passing for the next three days. A stupid hen just moved to my town and I have to work on making her want to leave. Wish me luck.
Ben Hanson: I'm not sure what I'm going to play this weekend. I still have a lot of The Last of Us to play though, but it isn't really grabbing me yet. Maybe because I edited our episode of Spoiled on it and know all of the plot details already. Outside of that, I'm sure I'll play some iPad games, I just downloaded Double Fine's Dropchord. Have a good weekend!
Jeff Marchiafava: I’ve been playing a lot of games featuring the undead lately, so I think this weekend I might take a break and focus on some of the 50+ indie PC games I’ve acquired over the past year. FTL, Hotline Miami, Frozen Synapse, and Monaco are all on the docket, plus a handful of new games I got from the latest Humble Indie Bundle – I can’t even remember what they are. I think I need help...
Kimberley Wallace: I am determined to finish Dead Space 2 this weekend. I’ve been trying to catch up on games I abandoned because I got busy, but always wanted to finish. Dead Space 2 is at the top of the list, and then I’m moving on to Deadly Premonition. True story, I’ve been distracted from Deadly Premonition three times now. I must right this wrong.
Mike Futter: In anticipation for the imminent release of Saints Row IV, I'll be diving back into Saints Row: The Third's Steelport to finish up the DLC I've got waiting for me. I'll also be playing some more Stranger's Wrath HD. If I'm very lucky, I'll be playing the gorgeous Dragon's Crown. As a promise to give things a second chance, I might also try to get my head wrapped around the first Pikmin title (on the Wii). I didn't enjoy it in my first outing, but everyone tells me its worth a second look.
Kyle Hilliard: I’ve been sharing my gaming time between Picross e2 and EarthBound. It’s been long enough from the first time I played EarthBound where everything feels new. I still need to finish Arrested Development, too. I’ve fallen way behind on that.
Liz Lanier: I have a ton of studying to do to finish up a summer college course, but I just got Phoenix Wright: Justice For All. So there goes my weekend… and my GPA.
Brian Albert: This weekend I'm making a trip back home to Iowa. I'll only be in a vehicle for about seven hours total, but that will be plenty of time to get through The Walking Dead: 400 Days. Being away from my PC means I'll need to take a break from Guild Wars 2, but that should give me some extra time to power through a few more chapters of Blood Meridian.
I recently got into medieval II total war again and I am really enjoying it. Its held up really well, I think I like it more than Empire total war, which is the one I've played the most. So I'll probably be playing that and catching up on game of thrones, and possibly playing some skyrim in between.
More Animal Crossing New Leaf for me, maybe I'll jump into God Of War Ascension, I picked it up at Best Buy for like $20 brand new. Go get it if you haven't already, the sale lasts until this sunday. I'm almost at like 5 Million Bells in animal crossing , I love that game!
Just scored a new copy of GOW Ascension for $20 bucks on Amazon but it's not here yet. Patience paid off on that one. NCAA14 and maybe either Red Dead, GTAIV, or LA Noire.
So many games in my backlog. Guess I'll try and tackle a few. Not even sure which ones to tackle first.
Still waiting for KH 1.5 HD Remix to come out :( I want to replay the first Kingdom Hearts SO FREAKIN BADLY, it's been too long! Also going to enjoy playing Re: Chain of Memories for the first time, well kinda, played the GBA version but not the PS2 remake.
P.S. Do a GI Live of KH HD, please! I would like to see Dan's reactions to the first two hours of KH.
Animal Crossing, Left for Dead 2, Sleeping Dogs, and PIKMIN 3!!! (finally)
Ico & shadow of the collossus collection. Tiny thief on my iPhone. Starting Stephen kings the dark tower
I just got Animal Crossing, Mario Kart 7, and Ocarina of Time for my new 3DS XL, so my plate is full. Poor 360 won't be getting any attention for awhile...
I should be continuing my journey through The Last Of Us but I've been sidetracked lately by DOOM 3: BFG Edition. I'm having a lot of fun with both of them!
Taking my nephew to go see Smurfs 2, on the gaming side I plan to finish my plan from last weekend, and finish a complete replay of the Prince of Persia series.
Planescape: Torment has been absorbing an unhealthy amount of my time recently (less than a week and I'm nearing the end I think). On top of that I'll be playing some more SMT: DDS2, just beat the first one and very much enjoyed it.
Final Fantasy 13 week still going. With a little Ac3 and Re6 finally got 100% on Ac2 over the weekend :D
Just started playing Final Fantasy XIII-2, and almost beating Super Mario Galaxy.
Before going to vacation to CA on Monday, I will be busy with family on Saturday and my best bud on Sunday. I'll probably play a tad bit of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. Finishing my first blog before I leave is also on my to do list. As is any summer school homework I need to do. My plate is very full this weekend.. Yay? Hope everyone has a nice weekend.
Just beat Borderlands 2 story last night, now I'm getting ready to dive head first into the DLC tonight. May mess around with State Of Decay some more. Might go see The Wolverine and 2 Guns.
