The lights are on
The Minnesota State Fair is going on this weekend, so a few of us will be checking that out. Otherwise, we'll be taking the three day weekend to play a lot of games.
Ben Hanson: This weekend I'm playing a little game I like to call "moving an entire house". It's like Tetris, if the play field was 8 miles long and each Tetris block was a box filled with books that made you sweat while carrying it. Other than that, I'm looking forward to continuing my love-affair with Disney Infinity. I started it last night and am really impressed. I'm an insane fan of The Incredibles and it is already the best game based on that license. There are a lot of really smart decisions that went in to the design of that title. Have a good weekend!
Kyle Hilliard: Lots of Rayman Legends. A little bit of Saint's Row IV. The state fair might get thrown in there. Maybe a nap?
Jeff Marchiafava: This weekend I plan on preparing for GTA V’s impending release by playing more GTA IV. I started playing the game again last week, and getting accustomed to the game again has been a bit rough. Rockstar has refined its controls a lot since 2008 though, so I’m not particularly worried about running into the same problems with GTA V.

I'm making my way through Ni No Kuni still (Great game!) and finishing up my Jak and Daxter series run through after beating Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (Not so great game! Thieves in Time that is). I may fit FFXIV: ARR in there, provided that the login issues are fixed, or at the least better than what they are. Though, in all honesty, a lot of this weekend may also consist of waiting in agony for Rayman Legends. That game looks absolutely outstanding.
Stress, drawing, poetry, and maybe a little Civ V.
I'm hoping to finish Saints Row 4 this weekend and also play more Hatsune Miku Project Diva F. I'm enjoying both games immensely.
Never finished Limbo, so I though I'd go ahead and do that. Also might play some Black Ops 2 multiplayer.
My gaming life is absolutely consumed with Animal Crossing New Leaf right now. It's hard resisting the urge to fiddle with the date/time on my 3DS. I also picked up the app Nightjar yesterday. So far it's a fascinating game.
Sonic All Star Racing Transformed is $5 on Amazon this weekend. PC version. Will play that until the FF14 servers are stable.
I love what I played of it so far though. WoW veterans will look down on it but I'm a former FF11 fan and 14 is really slick, fun, and beautiful on PC.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist for me this weekend. Great game so far!
I'll be on the Killzone Mercenary beta for most of the weekend, and putting some time in with Persona 4, Limbo, Battlefield 3, and Dark Souls.
Planning some Super Smash Brothers Brawl tournaments with the family, might play some Settlers of Catan too. When I get any time to myself I'll probably look for another Super Replay to watch (just finished Blue Stinger...wow.) or try to get into Splinter Cell Blacklist some more.
This weekend my family and I will be taking a roadtrip to visit our parents(haven't seen anyone but my mom in months). Also gonna use this as an opportunity to check out the flea markets in Washington D.C. and see if we find any good old games. After that going to visit my pregnant god-sister and talk about baby things. And then tomorrow afternoon we've got a cookout to attend. So all in all I won't be getting much gaming done this weekend. =( However I will have my 3DS so perhaps I'll be able to sneak in some Animal Crossing, and a few other games.
I'm all about animal crossing new leaf! I'm maxing out my house which is turning into a mansion. Thanks to Dan Ryckert's awesome strategy, it's surely paying off! Thanks Dan!
Finished The Walking Dead on the vita today so this weekend I'll probably be playing Killzone beta. It is so fun and I'm sure Aries will be playing Drake lol.
