Weekend Warrior – In The Groove

by Nathan Anstadt on Feb 01, 2019 at 07:00 PM

As we all start to thaw out after the polar vortex made a long stop in Minneapolis, we have plenty to choose from this weekend. There are finally a good grouping of games out as we enter February, and we'll be splitting our time between Resident Evil 2, Wargroove, Kingdom Hearts III, and... Contra 3.

That's what we're doing, but what will you be doing this weekend? Are you ignoring games this weekend to watch some football? Let us know in the comments.

Javy Gwaltney – I just can’t put down Resident Evil 2 despite playing both runs. I’ll probably make time for some more Wargroove as well.

Imran Khan (@imranzomg) – This weekend I’m going to mop up the post-game stuff in Kingdom Hearts III, which should be easy because there’s not a ton of it. There’s a couple of other games I have in my backlog, and I haven’t even touched Resident Evil 2 yet, so I’ll probably spend all weekend deciding what to play and then not play any of it. I also have a weird urge to play Contra 3? We’ll see where that goes.

Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – This weekend I’m planning on playing a fair amount of board games. My friends want to play more Splendor, and I’m still trying to wrap my mind around that one. I’ll also be watching the Super Bowl with some friends, and we’ve all agreed to soak one chicken wing in Last Dab hot sauce and then eat the spiciest wing of all time if the Patriots win. We have fun. Have a good weekend!

Jeff Marchiafava (@GIJeffM) – I have fully embraced my life as a virtual cowboy, and as such plan to continue plugging away at Red Dead II this weekend. However, everyone in the office seems to be losing their minds over Farm Together for some reason, so I may check that out as well. I’m pretty sure the blistering cold just broke their brains, but better safe than sorry?

Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – This weekend, I’m hoping to finish Persona 4 Golden. I’ve been playing it the entire year to this point, and while I don’t love it quite as much as Persona 5, it’s not far behind it. In between clearing palaces and maxing out social links, I’ll play Overwatch, Wargroove, and Resident Evil 2.

Hunter Wolfe (@Hunter_Wolfe) – I’m determined to finish Kingdom Hearts III this weekend, even though I know I’m a solid 20+ hours from the credits (and secret epilogue!) I’m even further away if you account for the time I’ll spend snapping selfies with Sora and Co. and baking berries au fromage with “little chef” Remy. If I’m feeling really adventurous, I’ll dive back into my “second run” in Resident Evil 2 as Claire. But if I’m being honest, I probably won’t. I’m declaring a moratorium on all other games until I finish Kingdom Hearts III!

Leo Vader (@leovader) – I'll be back playing the Road To SI event in Siege! I have been missing that mode all week. I'm also getting breakfast with my grandma. And I'm gonna talk her ear off about Siege!!! Woo!!!

Jay Guisao (@GuisaoJason) – This weekend I have a much-anticipated date with the wonderful worlds of Kingdom Hearts III. But, let’s be honest, I’ll probably be playing dozens of hours of Overwatch with my squad. And maybe if I can carve some time out of my busy gaming schedule, I’ll FaceTime my family and watch the Super Bowl. Here’s to seeing Belichick and Brady shed some salty tears on Sunday!

Suriel Vazquez (@SurielVazquez) – My plans include trying as hard as I can to resist playing more Wargroove, hopping into a Javelin with Leon Kennedy, and visiting Videl.

Nathan Anstadt (@NathanAnstadt) – With Red Dead completed, I now have my sights on unlocking the full roster in Smash Ultimate. That story mode sure does go on for a while. I'm also still slowly making my way through Final Fantasy Tactics. Also it's time to see get some Minneapolis pre-requisites out of the way and see the Mall of America! 

Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – Resident Evil 2. Kingdom Hearts III. Gymnastics. How to Train Your Dragon 3. Museum? Melting snow.
