Weekend Warrior – A Little Bit Of Everything

by Jason Guisao on Mar 01, 2019 at 07:00 PM

March has finally arrived! Games like Metro Exodus and Anthem are still dominating our free time but this weekend we're all making space for other fun-filled endeavors. We'll be watching movies and playing board games, but what will you be doing this weekend?

Nathan Anstadt (@NathanAnstadt) – The siren song of Final Fantasy Tactics still calls to me. Otherwise I’m making steady progress in Metro 2033, which is proving to be a pretty good time. Then I’ll be playing as much Trials Rising as possible.

Hunter Wolfe (@Hunter_Wolfe) – For intern movie night, Jay selected Princess Mononoke, so I’m excited to watch that. I’ve been at the end of Metro Exodus for, like, three days now, so it’s time to finish that up. I’ll need a palette cleanser afterward, so there’s probably some Marie Kondo on my agenda.

Joe Juba (@Joejuba) – After looking forward to Anthem for months, I’ve only had a few hours to play it in the week since its official release. That’s going to change this weekend, when I can fully dive into to BioWare’s shooter to see if this is finally the game-as-service that can keep me hooked for the long term. And if it’s not, I’ll just sit quietly dreaming of Dragon Age 4.

Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – I have a lot planned outside of gaming this weekend, most notably watching UFC 235, but when I am holding a controller, I’ll be playing Far Cry New Dawn and Overwatch. Maybe I’ll continue my slow progress through Resident Evil 2. Oh, and Marvel Strike Force because I’m addicted.

Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – Got some dinner plans and some Anthem plans and some going swimming with Reiner plans. It should be a good, but quiet one this weekend. I will also probably watch Into the Spider-Verse a fifth time. That’s a good movie.

Imran Khan (@imranzomg) – This weekend, I’m going to try and play some Dead or Alive 6 online, but the lack of a way to play with friends is a real bummer that might limit my time with it. I started playing Hyrule Warriors again, but this time on the Switch, and it really cements that it might be my favorite Warriors game, so I expect some more time with that. Beyond that, I ended up working a six-day week, so I’m going to probably rest a whole lot this weekend.

Leo Vader (@leovader) – I got this little control peripheral for Premiere called the Shuttle Pro, I've been trying to get comfortable with that because I've heard it speeds up editing. It definitely at least makes it more fun so far, it's got a fun wheel to spin around that makes me feel like a DJ. On the gaming front, more Siege and I guess more Far Cry New Dawn if a friend wants to play co-op but I sure feel like I've played enough of that after only a few hours. The secret second skill tree that has superhero skills has got me curious though. My friend keeps double jumping around me. This is not a joke. I should probably see what that's about. HAGS!

Jeff Cork – It looks like Minnesota is going to get more snow, so I'll be forced to spend the weekend inside. Rats. I'll be splitting my time between Overwatch, Far Cry New Dawn, and the new ToeJam & Earl game. Don't sleep on that last one -- it's super fun!

Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – This weekend I’ll be playing more board games, because I have a sick obsession with Betrayal at this point. Other than that, I might keep playing Ape Out which is surprisingly cool. Then there’s always Anthem sitting there… taunting me to get past those stupid forts… Have a good weekend!

Javy Gwaltney – I’m going to be finishing up my hockey journey with NHL 19 and continuing my Hitchcock marathon with North By Northwest!
