Weekend Warrior – This Is How We Suffer Through The Winter

by Ben Reeves on Jan 15, 2016 at 01:00 PM

Winter is in fully swing and the icy winds are bearing down on the American Midwest. On a cold winter's day, nothing could be better than cuddling up with a great game. There aren't a lot of new releases, but we're still playing catch up from last year.

Let us know what you're playing in the comments!

Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – I'm playing The Witcher 3 and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. In the off-chance I find any spare time in there, I might continue Undertale.

Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – My wife has a friend visiting from out of town, so we’ll be hanging out reminiscing about the old times. Otherwise I’ve got a review game I’m working on, and am going to help my sister pick out a new TV, which is one of those things that is surprisingly fun. I might also play some Bloodborne, but I’m not making any promises.

Jeff Marchiafava (@GIJeffM) – This weekend I plan to log some hours into Zen’s new Force Awakened pinball tables, which will probably lead me to playing a bunch more tables that I’ve been neglecting. If that’s not enough Star Wars, I’ve also been hankering to finally give Battlefront a serious shot, or I might just give the sci-fi nerd in me a break and jump back into Fallout 4’s Commonwealth.

Andrew Reiner (@Andrew_Reiner) – My weekend is a blank slate and I don't have many games to catch up on. I may jump into Oxenfree, but I should probably catch up on my TV show and movie watching, which consist of Better Call Saul, Black Sails, and The Martian. If anyone has any multiplayer ideas, hit me up on Twitter.

Mike Futter (@futterish) – This weekend, I anticipate building my first PC. It’s going to be a beast and, provided I don’t screw it up, I’ll probably be spending a lot of time getting it set up, installing games, and learning the true meaning of the world “ultra."

Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – This weekend, I'm most likely going to spend an embarrassing amount of time with Minecraft on PS4. That game has consumed my soul in the best possible way, it's a complete blast. Other than that, I'll struggle to reclaim the high scores among friends for every song in the new Amplitude. I also want to check out the adventure game Oxenfree, I'm hearing good things and I'm always up for something a little different. Have a good weekend!

Tim Turi (@timturi) – I’m still plugging away at EarthBound, which I continue to adore. The Wii U’s easily accessed save states are helping me progress through the game more evenly, so hopefully I won’t lose steam. I’ve always been replaying The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and hope to finally acquire the Master Sword this weekend.
