Weekend Spent: Nov. 3-4 - How are you spending the weekend?

David: Once again, my weekend is going to be consumed by the meta-game of emotional wrangling that I’ve discovered is unlocked when you link up XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Dishonored . I really should get back into the creative paranormal sandbox murdering of the deceitful and unjust. I want to. I keep really, really intending to. I love creative paranormal sandbox murdering so much that Dishonored is categorically one of my two Games of the Year thus far. But XCOM is a compulsively absorbing mistress. In fact four times this week I’ve found myself playing it without even realising I’d switch my PS3 on. I really don’t know how this is going to pan out. But I’m going to try to play Dishonored. Wish me luck.

Justin: I’ve got so many games screaming for my time, but I think Borderlands 2 is still going to win out. I’ve bought the DLC pass, though I’ve promised myself I won’t load it up until I’ve hit level 50 in the main game. Currently on 43. Great game, especially in co-op.

Ryan: I had been planning on a nice weekend away with my lady friend--but now she's going to visit her family, so that means I've got a date with Assassin's Creed III. Hell, maybe I'll even light up some candles and cook myself a fancy steak dinner. Yeah. I think I'll do that.

Brian: After putting it off all week, I need to pick up a copy of Assassin's Creed III this weekend. Unlike Ryan and his fancy steak dinner, my meal will consist of Doritos and Mountain Dew.

Sophia: In the spirit of Halloween, I’ve been playing some Left 4 Dead 2. Ok, so that $5 Steam sale had something to do with that. But it’s been fun! And much more fun when I play with actual people. I think I’m going to revisit Dishonored and try to get through at least one mission without slaughtering everyone.

Lorenzo: Who isn't going to be playing Assassin's Creed III this weekend? I know I am. I picked up my copy earlier this week and I can't wait to really dig in and spend some quality time with the game. Aside from that, I'll also be jumping into Skylanders Giants for review, so keep an eye out for that soon.

Henry: This will be another weekend balancing work and personal games. Like most of the folks on here I’m going to dive as deep into Assassin’s Creed III as I can, but I’ve got a review to finish too. I’ll be enjoying Paper Mario: Sticker Star--look for the review early next week. Hopefully I can get both those taken care of so I can start enjoying Halo 4 on Tuesday.

Cooper: This is the first weekend in a while that I’m not grinding through a review game, so I’m planning on taking it easy. I might spend some time running (heh) through Assassin’s Creed III’s multiplayer, though, finally getting some time with Wolf Pack. Anyone down to play?

    Gonna be replaying all of the Halo games until 4 drops Monday night. Started Reach last night, got to the 9th mission, so I imagine Halo:Ce will be done with by the time I go to sleep.

    ACIII. I imagine I'll be playing only that until Christmas.

    Going for my 93rd playthrough of Torcher Arsonist of Evil. Plus, finishing up MGS Snaker Eater 3D and starting on MGS 4 (which amazingly I still haven't played yet).

    I'll be finishing up Virtue's Last Reward during the weekend. Then I'll be preparing my body for Halo 4.

    I finally got to pick up four games I haven't had the chance to play. I got Fable 3, Dark Void, Crackdown, and Brink. I will hope to play through some of them. I am insanely pumped though for Tuesday for Halo 4. Master Chief here I come!
  • samsneeze - November 2, 2012 6:54 p.m.

    Take Fable III back.

    I will be going to my girlfriend's best friend's, one year old's birthday. Next I'll be off to a wake in the same day. So I'll be meeting both extremes this weekend. Then finally I'll probably be drinking, playing AC3 with my bud, and protesting on Sunday; because we can't stand for the no-selling of alcohol on Sundays, so we protest in earnest in our own way by drinking! In his apartment... having a good time.... Secluded off....because someones gotta have a good time! So were taking this bullet for all of you! Remember that, were fighting the good fight.

    I'll be potentially doing a Lord of the Rings movie marathon for the lolz. Game related, it'll be between Ass Creed 3 and Fallout 3, which I've picked up again after ages.
