Weekend Warrior 5/31/13

The weather is finally starting to cooperate here in Minnesota, so we’re going to celebrate the nice temperatures this weekend with lots and lots of video games. Indoors.

Ben Hanson: This weekend I hope to finish off Call of Juarez: Gunslinger. I thought that I was sick of the FPS genre, but this game is really hitting a sweet spot I didn't know existed. Outside of that, I have Tomb Raider sitting around making me feel more and more guilty with each day of negligence. Then there is always the draw of Hero Academy on my iPhone. 

Jeff Marchiafava: Once again Humble Bundle convinced me to buy another pack of awesome indie games, so I think I’ll spend at least some of the weekend playing games on my laptop. I sadly still have to finish Tomb Raider too, and Blood Dragon isn’t going to download and play itself. 

Tim Turi: This weekend I plan on finishing up Metro: Last Light. I’m enjoying it much more than Metro 2033 so far, and look forward to seeing the post-apocalyptic adventure through to the end. In other news, I started playing Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, a GBA game that I have on my 3DS. So far I like it. I’ve never beaten a Fire Emblem game, so we’ll see if I stick with it.

Liz Lanier: I’m taking advantage of my free time this weekend to catch up on some shorter titles I’m embarrassed to admit that I have not played yet. I’ll start off with Journey, which has been sitting on my PS3 untouched for far too long. Then I will be playing The Unfinished Swan and Limbo. If time and my old VAIO’s capabilities permit, I’ll move on to play To the Moon.

Brian Albert: The new Humble Indie Bundle was too tempting to pass up, even though I already own a number of its games. I liked the odd exploration of Dear Esther, so I’ll probably check out Proteus, which I’ve heard is sort of similar. Of course, I could just play Dark Souls again.
