Weekend Gamer: What are you playing?


With projects due on a drop dead date next Thursday, my weekend will be filled with playing work. Which brings on the question: What are you playing this weekend?

Halo Reach, Tribes Ascend, Puzzle Strike, and Yomi. Along with that, I will be hanging out at the local game shop and probably explaining to my friends how I got ripped off at last week's MTG prerelease (Stupid prize payout structure caused me to win half as many packs as I should have won)

I'm enjoying The Witcher. I'll be poking around in Vizima when I'm not doing family weekend stuff.

I'm off on a guy weekend. I'm sure some games will be played, but I plan on doing more cooking out, drinking, and shooting the shit than gaming. It will be a nice 3 day break from the wife and kids.

I might log some time in on Skyrim on late Sunday night.

Trials Evolution, Legend of Grimrock, Kingdoms of Amalur, Witcher 1, and maybe some PS3 games.

Yes, I need to still slog through Resistance 1. I have Resistance 2 and 3 sitting on my shelf. I need a second life.

I just beat Legend of Grimrock...it's been awhile since I've been inspired to follow a game all the way through, but it was 95% a blast, and I loved hunting down the secrets and leveling my characters. I hope to see more from those guys...

But, that means on to the next challenge. I've been ramping up on tutorials in preparation for some serious Civ5 play, and ready to go back to Witcher 2, which Grimrock distracted me from.

Perhaps, also some Fez, Arkham City, Fallout: NV or Skyrim. The latter 2, though, just feel like disconnected quest lists.

With little to no rain, the yard will not need my attention. So it's going to be Burgertime on a real grill and then catching up on some Steam gems, Breath of Death VII and Cthulhu Saves the World. I've let my XBL gold expire and don't see going back any time soon. Backlog of GOG and Steam games that will finally get the attention they deserve.

I've gone back and am replaying Torchlight on the PC. Also I'm hoping on some couch time to play Darkness II and KoA DLC that I bought weeks ago, but haven't started.

Prolly more Magic, maybe a little DCUO. Think I'll have to load up this Arkham City challenge stuff too, since I got the add-ons in the sale.

Tera Online and Endless Space. Really enjoying the combat in Tera and Endless Space shows tons of promise and is already very good as an alpha.

I tried to like BioShock. I really did! ... but I didn't.

Planescape maybe. Or Fallout 3.

I had the same reaction to Bioshock...couldn't care about the world, the characters or the mechanics. I miss my original System Shock, which was wonderfully atmospheric, and didn't feel forced. Bioshock just felt forced...then again, it also felt just like SS2, with the same twists, but I think the similarities helped make the feeling of being forced more prominent. Same game by the same developer...
