Weekend Spent: Aug. 18 - 19

Hollander Cooper: I have company over this weekend, so it's all about party games. You Don't Know Jack, Scene It, a smattering of board games, and a healthy, heaping dose of sightseeing. 

Lucas Sullivan: With the latest Team Fortress 2 patch, the Mann vs. Machine horde mode is in full effect. I may have jump back into one of my all-time favorite shooters to prove the superiority of flesh versus metal, and maybe snag some items along the way. Plus, that awesome Kong King level (tying in with the release of Sleeping Dogs, which I need to get around to playing sometime soon) looks like the best Valve-made map in some time.

Henry Gilbert: My weekend will actually be spent on assignment. I'm going to LA to see a something secret for a preview (look for it next week). Since I’ll be travelling, I’ll bring along my 3DS to try and unlock the last of the secret levels in New Super Mario Bros 2, as well as play some more in SMT: Devil Survivor 2. I’ll also have my recently fixed Windows Phone, so I’m sure I’ll rack up some Achievements in casual games too.

Sophia Tong: I've been meaning to jump back into Minecraft. The last world I was playing in for some reason decided to start lagging, and it's impossible to play. I can't explain it, but I just have the urge to dig. 

Sterling McGarvey: In light of the kick-off to the English Premier League and La Liga this weekend, I will be playing some FIFA 12 with my friends before putting it out to pasture, once and for all. When I'm not kicking a ball around, I'll be brushing up on Beyond Good & Evil HD HD for our upcoming Game Club finale. I wish I had some cool "I'll be knee deep in Sleeping Dogs and Darksiders II" tales, but on-the-couch trash talk with my buddies and some catch-up time on classics will win out over "staying current."

Tom Magrino: So you may have already heard, but we’ve got this 24 Hour Gaming Marathon coming up next weekend, and wanting to do my part for charity, or whatever, I volunteered to run Team Fortress 2. Exciting, one of my favorite games of the last decade, hooray hooray. But here’s the thing: I haven’t played TF2 in about two years. I don’t know why I’m mildly embarrassed by that. It just seems, I don’t know, like I’ve done something wrong. Like I haven’t been doing my part to sustain the human cause, or I’ve somehow betrayed my humanity. It’s very confusing. Needless to say, I’ll be playing TF2 this weekend.

So that's what we're doing. What are you playing?

    Been working through Skyrim when I have the time. Work has been killer for me the past month and I haven't gotten more than two days off, which has really cut into my desired gaming time. Which would likely be spent playing more Skyrim.
  • gyromne - August 19, 2012 8:28 a.m.

    Been into sleeping dogs when I get A chance to play anything. Other than that still trying to finish New Super Mario Bros.
  • Meleedragon27 - August 19, 2012 7:28 a.m.

    I decided I wanted to focus more time on finishing a drawing that's been sitting on my computer for months now, so my game time will be pretty limited. Nevertheless, for Sunday I'm gonna see if I can't spend at least a little time playing Rayman Origins; I started playing it last weekend and loved every minute of it. I still quite a ways to go before beating the game, so I doubt I'll be beating it this weekend, but I aim to complete another world before I have to go back to work on Monday.
  • olio22 - August 19, 2012 5:39 a.m.

    Playing some multiplayer of the transformers demo, probably some bf3 and maybe a bit of Reach.
  • Stiltzkin - August 19, 2012 12:52 a.m.

    You're here now Magrino? Glad to see you back in the field. Hotspot OUT!
  • GR_SophiaTong - August 19, 2012 3:23 p.m.

    He's also on the podcast and our new releases show!
  • Corsair89 - August 18, 2012 9:51 p.m.

    I'll be juggling Xenoblade, Last Story, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, Advance Wars, Dream Drop Distance, Persona 4 Arena, The Witcher 2, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Catherine, and American McGee's Alice all while working, catching up with Breaking Bad, and reading A Storm of Swords(3rd book in A Song of Ice and Fire). I have a bit of a full plate.
  • F4N5EVERYWHERE - August 18, 2012 8:06 p.m.

    Finishing up Skyrim: Dawguard and playing through the whole MGSHD Collection on my VITA!
  • KnowYourPokemon - August 18, 2012 7:59 p.m.

    Been playing a bit of Awesomenauts and Half Life 2, just ticking the time by gaming wise until Transformers Tuesday!
  • Tyrande - August 18, 2012 7:32 p.m.

    i actually went on a shopping spree yesterday and bought Arkham city, darksiders II, sleeping dogs, dragons dogma, and ace combat. i seriously dont know where to start, or even if i should considering a have a bunch of games already started... i really wish i could stop time.
  • Zeos - August 18, 2012 6:43 p.m.

    I'm playing Arkham City again and I am probably going to play through Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga again.
  • taokaka - August 18, 2012 5:13 p.m.

    I've been meaning to continue my journey in persona 3 FES but instead found myself playing Alice madness returns. But while traveling to and from my Japanese lesson I've been playing sound shapes.
  • Greg53 - August 18, 2012 5:04 p.m.

    Still plowing away at my second playthrough of Skyrim
  • ludicololvr - August 18, 2012 2:40 p.m.

    Xenoblade Chronicles, Tales of Symphonia, and Dragon Quest IX as part of my unofficial "Summer of JRPGs"
  • GR_SophiaTong - August 18, 2012 10:15 p.m.

    The Last Story? We're doing a giveaway!
  • SDHoneymonster - August 18, 2012 2:39 p.m.

    No change for me - still barely got anywhere in The Witcher 2 but loving it, and I'm now slightly less confused by MGS4.
  • IceBlueKirby - August 18, 2012 2:26 p.m.

    Playing Skyward Sword mostly. I crapped out on it the first time I played it so maybe this time I can finish it. And if I get un-lazy enough to unhook my Wii and hook up my 360 (my TV only has one spot for A/V cables) I'll start Bodycount, just so I can burn through it and say I've actually finished a game recently. Barring that, I'll get my FPS fix from Half-Life 2.
  • ObliqueZombie - August 18, 2012 2:16 p.m.

    Gotta trudge through Heroic dungeons on World of Warcraft to acquire Justice in order to prepare my monk for the real world. It's a slag, but it'll be worth it in the end. Other than that, finishing off Pokemon Diamond on my fiance's 3DS, and loving every minute of the only generation I never fully played.
