The lights are on
Many staff members (and one intern) are causing yet more chaos in Los Santos. Some of us are also playing some older titles, preparing for Pokémon X and Y, and going to see Gravity.
Tim Turi: This weekend I plan to make as much progress in GTA V as possible. I have a strong feeling I’m getting near the end of the game. While I’ll be bummed when the story is through, I’m ready to have my plate cleared for a big dive into GTA Online (assuming it’s up and running). Besides my car-jacking and heisting plans, I hope to jump into Halo: Anniversary Edition with a friend and blast away some Covenant and Flood for some nostalgic fun.
Jeff Marchiafava: This weekend I plan to check out more of GTA Online. I had some luck getting into the game last night, and despite a convenience-store robbery gone wrong (my partner thought I was shooting at him, but it was the clerk – I swear!), I had a lot of fun. Granted, it still eventually crashed and kicked me out of the game, but hopefully Rockstar’s continued server work results in some smoother gaming this weekend.
Ben Hanson: This weekend is just full of possibilities. I still plan on finishing Mario and Luigi: Dream Team before Pokémon comes out, but I'm losing a lot of steam around the 40 hour mark. I've also started losing steam with Grand Theft Auto V's missions; I still love the world and dinking around as much as possible though. Have a good weekend!
Kyle Hilliard: Pokémon pulled me away from Grand Theft Auto V for a while, so I am ready to make my triumphant return. I will continue to be playing Pokémon though, as there is still a lot I’d like to do in Kalos. Other than that, I think I will be going to see Gravity. I’ve been excited about that movie for a long time, based purely on Alfonso Cuarón doing something in space. He’s one of those directors that I want to see everything he does.
Mike Trinh: I’m looking forward to watching Gravity this weekend! Beyond that, I’ll be chipping away at the GTA V single player and possibly trying out Might & Magic Clash of Heroes, which is free on Xbox Live right now.
Isaac Perry: Guild Wars 2 continues to release some great free content over a year after release. I played some of the new Twilight Arbor content earlier this week and I look forward to wasting away hours doing it again and again.
Katie Seville: I hope to finally finish Bioshock and begin Infinite later this weekend. I know I’ll also continue to torment myself with information about Pokémon X and Y (I've finally decided on Y) that I’ve already read a million times. Hopefully seeing Gravity will distract me while I’m waiting.
