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.
Animal Crossing has taken over my life. I typically only have 3 hours a day to devote to gaming during my work week and it takes up almost all of that time. I have hundreds of flowers that I water since I typically play late at night and have to keep the Night Owl Ordinance for the shops to stay open. But in a way, I don't mind. It's really peaceful to dig up fossils, pluck the weeds, and water the flowers. But I feel bad since I want to play other games. >.< SMTIV is still calling my name. =(
Going to be on my 3ds xl for a good part of the wk end I hurt my Knee really bad 2 days ago so I am kind of bed bound or chair bound. My husband brought me the Doom BFG collection for me so I will try to play that this wk end as well. Got some movies and shows I want to watch as well so my wk end is jam packed have a great wk end everyone.:)
Have a great weekend guys! Kim also reminds me that I have to play the rest of Dead Space 2.. I dropped off at chapter 4. I will be enjoying my new 3DS XL with Fire Emblem this weekend though!
finishing neptunia and agarest zero...
Hopefully I can finish Red Dead Redemption this weekend. That game is a monster. Other than that I'll play more Dota 2.
Well I had a root canal yesterday & two teeth pulled today so besides being drugged up & being on a straight Ramen diet I'm gonna take it easy & stay in all weekend! A couple of episodes till I finish Game of Thrones & I'm really hoping that Joffrey will fall on his freaking sword. I'm playing through XCOM but after getting my entire squad pretty much wiped out I'm hesitant & scared to start again. Also wanna finish my Witcher novels so I can start The Witcher 2. If the games u inverse is anything like the books it's probly gonna be my favorite game of this gen. & it may be considered heresy in some circles but I couldn't finish The Last of Us. It was great, intense, challenging, & mature, but I just couldn't get all the way invested into it. :(
I think it was because how much I keep thinking about The Witcher. Have you ever thought about playing a game so much that it ruins another experience for you because I'm pretty positive that's what happened.
Just got through watching The Conjuring and it was meh. As far as the rest of the weekend plans go, I'll probably be trying to finish up Darksiders 2 and also play Crackdown and Cloudberry Kingdom.
I'm gonna try to finish up Fallout 3 this weekend. I've really been getting into it. I've always been into post-apocalyptic types of games but I have to say that Fallout 3 is the best at immersing you into the end of the world.
Saints Row 3,GTA 4,Metro Last Light this weekend.
Halo 4 and Borderlands 2.
Working on my first playthrough of Assassin's Creed, hoping to finish it by the time Tales of Xillia comes out on Tuesday.
Kim, no more excuses. You gotta play Deadly Premonition before it starts feeling dated!
Right now I am really just playing games I feel like playing. I am just waiting until Aug 20th comes around when I will pick up a few games. I may go back and pick up MGS 2 after taking a long break from it.
Not much gaming wise this weekend. Besides work, I might rent some recent movies from Redbox and I will be going to a party at a friend's house Sunday.
I'm finally getting to the end of my first playthrough of Chrono Trigger. Just need to complete some sidequests, blow a giant levitating fortress out of the sky, and destroy an ancient evil bent on obliterating all life on earth. Y'know. Typical JRPG stuff.
I will be playing Bioshock and maybe some Injustice.
