Weekend Warrior – End Of The Year Grind

by George Ash on Dec 01, 2017 at 07:00 PM

This weekend people in the office are mainly trying to catch up on the year's major releases and polishing off some nearly finished games. Let us know what you're playing this weekend in the comments below!

George Ash (@GeorgeEAsh) – Nothing new this weekend, I'll keep playing Heat Signature, which I bought on sale over the Thanksgiving break and have been enjoying. I'll also inevitably play more Overwatch, and may even pop back into PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds or Cuphead.

Cody Mello-Klein (@Proelectioneer) – This weekend I’ll mostly be catching up on some TV (Mr. Robot) and continuing my new game + playthrough of the Witcher 3 because time is a flat circle and I’ll never stop playing the Witcher no matter what you say.

Keenan McCall (@KEeNanMcCall525) – Honestly, it’s been a long week and I need to catch up on rest for most of this weekend. When I’m not unconscious, I’ll probably boot up some calming story driven games like What Remains of Edith Finch, Gone Home, and Tacoma. I’ve also got a personal tradition of playing through Metroid games in December, so I’ll be picking up Metroid Fusion and Metroid: Samus Returns again for some quick playthroughs.

Imran Khan (@imranzomg) – This weekend, I am doing my last minute Game of the Year checking with Ni-Oh, The Evil Within 2, and a few other titles. I’m also very, very close to beating Super Mario Odyssey’s hardest level, so maybe I’ll do some streaming of that if I can keep the swearing down to a dull roar.

Suriel Vazquez (@SurielVazquez) – I’m on the Finale portion of Cuphead, so I’m hoping to finish that up this weekend (possibly tonight!). Next I think I’ll start digging into Pyre, which is at the top of my pile of shame for the year. I also plan to revisit Soma to check out its new Safe Mode. The enemy and encounter design were my biggest issue with the game the first time, so I’m curious to see how it holds up without them.

Ben Hanson (@Yozetty) – The weekend is already here! I took a huge dent out of my backlog by finishing South Park and Horizon… not sure what’s next. Maybe I could play through another ending of Nier? Finish Hellblade? You tell me, comments section. Love you! Oh, and there’s a good cover reveal coming next week. Stay tuned!

Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – I recently wrapped up Star Wars: Battlefront II’s campaign, as well as Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, so now it’s on to Assassin’s Creed Origins and Call of Duty: WWII. The end of the year is fast approaching, so I’m trying to clean up any major releases I’ve missed. Maybe I’ll try my hand at Nier: Automata between those games.
