The Game Informer offices got bombarded with snow this week, but after we work up a sweat digging out our igloos, we'll curl up under some blankets and play some games. What about you?

Ben Hanson: This weekend I'd love to keep playing Strider on PC but it keeps crashing on me. Outside of that, I hope to finish off Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. It is downright stupid how hard that game is. I've shut it off in frustration more than six times, but it will always bother me if I don't finish it. Have a good weekend!

Jeff Marchiafava: I’ve spent so much time shoveling snow this week that I don’t even know what day it is anymore; it’s just snow. If by some miracle I manage to get enough of a break to play some games, I think I’ll go for something that takes place in a warm and sunny location – maybe Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

Kyle Hilliard: As far as video games go, I plan on diving into Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Bill Nye the science guy will also be at the Mall of America, so I plan on attending that. I guess he's doing some science experiments or something? To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what he will be doing, but I will be in the audience shouting, "Beakman rules!"

Danial Tack: I'll be playing a game for review that I don't think I'm allowed to talk about it yet, but I've got 20 hours in and the weekend will be putting another layer on top of that.
