The lights are on
This weekend, some GI editors are taking a break from GTA V with new releases like Pokémon X & Y, Beyond: Two Souls, and The Wolf Among Us. But mostly everyone is, you know, playing GTA V.
Kimberley Wallace: My mission is to finish Beyond: Two Souls this weekend. I liked what I played of a preview build, but it was only the first hours, so I want to see how it all turns out. Other than that, I’ve been also playing GTA V; one day I’ll finish! I also have my preorder set for Pokémon X. Too many games. Story of my life.
Jeff Marchiafava: After falling off the GTA V bandwagon this week, I hope to finally finish up the single-player campaign and spend more time with GTA Online. My fledgling hoodlum is falling further and further behind – I’ll never be able to buy my own mansion at the rate I’m going.
Joe Juba: I've got a review game that I'm pretty excited about, so I'll be digging into that over the weekend. Hopefully I'll also find some time to finish up Beyond: Two Souls and crank out a few more levels in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. I'm interested in Pokémon, too, but my current schedule means that I probably won't get to start it this weekend, which may be a blessing in disguise.
Mike Futter: I'm going to carve out some time to play the first episode of The Wolf Among Us. I'll also be sitting on the couch with the kids on Sunday, opening up far too many Skylanders and taking Swap Force for a ride. I might also try that GTA V thing that everyone is talking about. Finally, my dog gets really freaked out by the noises sectoids make in XCOM: Enemy Unknown. That makes for good times.
Kyle Hilliard: My daughter’s birthday was earlier in the week, but we will be continuing the celebrations through the weekend. When she’s sleeping, however, I am painfully overdue for some Grand Theft Auto V time. I’m also excited for Pokémon’s release this weekend. I'll finally be able to start trading and playing with other trainers.
Isaac Perry: I’m thinking of trying my hand at Dota 2 again. Also, I need to finish Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs.
Katie Seville: I’ll be picking up my copy of Pokémon Y in the wee hours of the morning tomorrow, and I plan on playing it all weekend. I recently started Bioshock Infinite, but I’m sorry to say that it’ll probably be on the back burner for a while.
Mike Trinh: I feel like I’m going to be saying this for a long time, but I will be playing GTA V this week. Not even close to finishing that game. I might also distract myself by trying out a game or two from the latest Weekly Humble Bundle while patiently waiting for Pokémon X to come in the mail.

Animal Crossing New Leaf (GOD! That game won't let go of me!). I'll also start reading The House of Hades at some point. I've also got a 20% off coupon to Barnes and Noble so I'm heading there tomorrow to get a Minecraft Lego set.
More GTA V for me. Don't officially know how far I am, but it feels like I'm getting towards the end.
My copy of Gears of War 3 broke yesterday, but I just picked up a replacement today. You know when they say 'you don't know what you have until it's gone'? I do, so I'll be playing it probably all weekend. But I got back into XCOM over the scant twelve hours between when it broke and when I got a new copy, so I'll try not to neglect that. I want to finish this time.
I just got Heavy Rain. When I finish that I may start GTA Online.
Beyond: Two Souls, I really like this game! And some Grand Theft Auto V. I still have to finish up the story for that.
I'll make a new GTA O character I guess. Stupid Rockstar lost my old one, ah well I didn't get too far at least.
I still didn't finish Far cry 3 so I will make another attempt at it. I just finished dealing with Buck and man did I hate that guy especially when I found out what he was doing. I probably should try to finish my presentation on lady murasaki, I gotta make room for school sometimes.
I've been invested in KoA: Reckoning since I got it free and plan on playing more of that, along with a healthy amount of Wind Waker HD.
Picking up Pokemon X tomorrow!! Finally! Will probably play something co-op or multiplayer related too, most likely GTA V. Also finishing up Supernatural Season 8 this weekend so I don't get behind again this year. And of course The Walking Dead on Sunday!
