Weekend Warrior 10/11/13

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.
