Weekend Warrior – Taking Little Bites Out Of The Great Grecian Apple
This weekend most of us are getting lost in the massive open world of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey or popping off shots in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Mega Man 11, Maple Story 2, and Forza Horizon 4 are also in the mix. Otherwise we’re just chillin’. Per usual, let us know what you’re doing this weekend in the comments section below.
Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) - My video game time will be split between Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout mode and Assassin's Creed: Odyssey on Google's streaming platform, which is pretty decent! Call of Duty has a setting where you can turn off the gore and make the zombies look cartoonish. I don't know if that will be enough to make me feel comfortable playing it around the kid, but I really appreciate that it's an option. Otherwise it will be a lot of relaxing after last weekend's (and most of the week's) birthday party extravaganza.
Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) - This weekend, I have the good problem of having too many awesome games to play. I’m back from a vacation, so I’m planning on enjoying the consoles I was away from last weekend. I’m about 15 hours into Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and I’m loving it, but I’m always tempted to go play Forza Horizon 4. I like both games a lot, so it’s hard to choose between them when I sit on my couch. Add to that Black Ops 4 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and I’m absolutely drowning. No way I’ll get to all of them this weekend, but I’ll do my best!
Jill Grodt (@Finruin) - This is my weekend for Assassin's Creed: Odyssey! The bits of stolen time I’ve put into that game have barely made a dent and Red Dead Redemption II is looming on the horizon. But I may not be progressing in the story because I spend about half my time looking at the walls and pottery; musing on the game’s choices in the nerdiest way possible. Also, Halloween is coming up quick and I’m thinking I should start looking at costumes before everything is sold out.
Leo Vader (@leovader) - I’ve been playing through Sleeping Dogs again and damn that game holds up. I’ve also been playing Maple Story 2 with some friends for pretty much no reason. So I look forward to those this weekend! Best time to be a gamer… ?
Ben Hanson (@yozetty) - This weekend I’m planning on relaxing and sitting back with even more Forza Horizon 4. There’s always the lingering juggernaut of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode, so I’m sure plenty of folks will want to play that and I’ll go along for the ride. I love battle royale games and have had a blast with this thing so far. Also, I beat Wandersong last weekend and think you all should take a look at it if you like Night in the Woods or even something like Paper Mario. It’s a damn delight. Have a good weekend!
Suriel Vasquez (@SurielVazquez) - Thinking about changing my PSN handle to "WHERESCASSANDRAIBNEI" and raiding Dr. Wily's lab with my fireteam.
Imran Khan (@imranzomg) - I’m stuck on Wily 2 in Mega Man 11 because I refuse to use items. I am going to be spending every waking second of the weekend trying to do it.
Javy Gwaltney - [Gritty Voice] BLACKOUT.
JP Gemborys (@JPGemborys) – This weekend I’m thinking of maybe trying some Scandinavian food while I’m in Minneapolis or checking out this barcade that everyone’s been telling me about. Other than that, I’m going to try and do some writing, then get sucked down the YouTube wormhole and possibly finish the Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages.
