Weekend Spent: Oct. 6-7 - What games are on your list?

Lucas: After a recent shopping spree of classic PC games, I’ve got a lot of sampling to do this weekend. First up will be Sanitarium, a point-and-click 1998 adventure that’s all about psychological horror. Then the first Far Cry, even though I own and still have yet to play Far Cry 2. If time permits, I’ll also dip into some La-Mulana. Yep--GOG got my wallet good this week.

Cooper: I’ve spent the last week cracking away at XCOM: Enemy Unknown for review (coming Monday morning), and I think I’ll continue playing it throughout the weekend to see how many other family members I can get killed. I also might try to go back into some games I missed, like Borderlands 2 or Torchlight II, if not to just get a slight whiff of their greatness before being whisked away to another review.

David: Let’s see. Ever since I got a copy of Dishonored the other day I’ve spent every waking minute either playing Dishonored, thinking about Dishonored, talking about Dishonored, planning out tactics and schemes for Dishonored, or cursing whatever I happened to be doing for not being playing Dishonored. I’m only missing out on dreaming about Dishonored in terms of having the full set of obsessional game behaviour, so this weekend I reckon I’m going to work on getting that one sorted out.

Justin: This weekend (on the strength of Sophia's recommendation), I will be playing the copy of LittleBigPlanet Vita that I bought yesterday. Loving it so far. My girlfriend and I are also playing co-op Borderlands 2 together, which is amazing. I still intend to play F1 2012 some more too. Oh, and high-score caning NiGHTS into Dreams HD is quite literally ‘Dreamy’, so I’ll be on that too, no question. Try to beat CatGoneCrazy on PSN. Game on!

Sophia: I am going to be marathoning it this weekend and catching up on all the games that I have yet to play. Sleeping DogsDishonored, and Darksiders II are due for some attention. I have also been distracted by some Plants vs Zombies lately, mainly because I now have it on the Vita and I am starting to enjoy playing games in bed right before I go to sleep. 

Brian: I plan on progressing further through Resident Evil 6. I’m actually quite anxious to see what the other campaigns have to offer. Aside from that, I need to brush up on my Starcraft II skills in preparation for the one day that I win the Blizzard lottery and get that magical email invitation to the Heart of the Swarm beta.

Sterling: I’m working on Fable: The Journey for Tuesday’s review (it’ll be live at 6 a.m. Pacific!). Funny enough, we’re experiencing San Francisco’s typical late summer heat, so my neighbors probably thought I was completely crazy sitting on my couch making weird gestures and shouting commands at my console. In my mind, I figured they thought I was playing Dance Central 2 sitting down. Either way, probably looked a little weird to them. Anyway, I’m hoping that by Sunday, I’ll be done with my review in time to test out the NBA’s newest Expandables, your 2012-13 Lakers, in NBA 2K13.

Lorenzo: Coming off my review of Dishonored, I’ve decided to switch gears from the stealth action and political dealings and get into some good ol’ fashioned zombie killing. I’ve started to play through the Leon campaign in Resident Evil 6, and I’m hoping to get through at least that one storyarch during the weekend. I’ve also found a new favorite class in Guild Wars 2 (the Guardian), so there’s that. Sorry, Norn Warrior. You have been shunned.

Henry: Busy week in the office after my extended stay in Japan, meaning I had to postpone starting Resident Evil 6 until this weekend. I know response to it has been mixed, but I’m too big of an RE fan to ignore it. On top of that, New Super Mario Bros 2 got its first set of DLC, so I’ll also be putting the new, harder stages through their paces too. And if I’m lucky I’ll find time to beat Bayonetta, but that’s likely wishful thinking.

That's what we'll be busy doing. What about you? Let us know in the comments below!

    Slowly ploughing through Resi 6. Finished Jake's campaign and I'm working through Leon's now. There have been some memorable momments, but overall the game's been feeling rather "meh", hence my slow progress.
  • taokaka - October 5, 2012 5:46 p.m.

    I bought and played through all of liberation maiden, it's only about one and a half hours long unfortunately but still good. But for the rest of the weekend I'll be playing the game of quit procrastinating and study for my exams.
  • unbeatableloser - October 5, 2012 6:18 p.m.

    Resident Evil 6 this weekend, dunno what Imma do for my birthday though...also maybe a little bit of left 4 dead 2 if i can. Haha got a bit of a zombie weekend planned I guess.
  • themarine28 - October 5, 2012 7:52 p.m.

    I've been in the mood to play some mass effect. Probably start off with the first one and make my way up from there
  • Evanesco - October 5, 2012 8:48 p.m.

    Arkham City and RDR
  • samsneeze - October 5, 2012 9:56 p.m.

    Rainbow Six: Vegas 2. I forgot how good this game was.
  • shawksta - October 5, 2012 10:12 p.m.

    My Brother bought Call of Duty Classic to play the game from its roots, as for me, im finishing off Symphony of Sorcery in Kingdom Hearts DDD, doing some online Pokemon White Battles (It doesnt get the credit for finally giving us Random people), and like Henry, tackling the NSMB2 DLC, i can say this, the Nerve-Wrack pack, REALLY IS a Nerve-Wrack, i still cant beat the second level.
  • t_skwerl - October 6, 2012 7:38 a.m.

    Another weekend playing Mass Effect 3's Multiplayer, in preparation for that new Collector dlc, Retaliation. Should be pretty sweet if they added Harbinger into it. "This hurts you." Yes, yes it does. Hurts so good. Going to try to finish Ada's campaign in Resident Evil 6, whilst trying to get those darned emblems and not get killed by flaming, chainsaw J'avo. Fun, fun.
  • Hig1134 - October 6, 2012 7:38 a.m.

    I've actually picked up Twisted Metal is awesome fun! Underrated IMO, even if it did get generally favorable reviews. Also, probably some Ratchet and Clank collection, and kick my buddies a$$ in NHL13 a few times!
  • J-Fid - October 6, 2012 7:53 a.m.

    Pokemon White 2!
  • m8605 - October 6, 2012 8:26 a.m.

    Mass Effect 1 for PC - still pretty early in the game I'd imagine. I'm on the Nouveria (spelling) planet. THat core puzzle game was annoying as hell. The only other game installed - Star Wars KOTOR but I haven't been playing that as much. With new generations of consoles coming out I'm debating how I should continue playing. I've stopped playing multiplayer games although the new CS is tempting. I've done away with BF3 since premium came out and I'm done with Call of Duty since last time I played I got annoyed with its save game (mechanic?). I was playing Assassins creed until ubisoft gave me issues with losing two hours of game play etc. If anyone can recommend me some top notch story driven games that'd be awesome.
  • Meleedragon27 - October 6, 2012 9:01 a.m.

    I'm gonna be finishing up Resident Evil 4 HD this weekend; downloaded it last week and I've been playing at least one chapter per night. Once I'm done with that, I'll either give Ada's campaign a try (I never had a chance to play it, since I only had the GameCube version of RE4) or I'll download Code: Veronica HD (never played it, would like to along with RE2). Regardless, it's gonna be another Resi weekend at my house.
  • Zeos - October 6, 2012 12:56 p.m.

    Finishing up Chris' campaign on RE6 then I'll start Jake's and maybe finish that too so I can start on Ada's.
  • pots555 - October 6, 2012 2:54 p.m.

    Just bought The Godfather: The Don's Edition on the PS3, so I'll give it a try this weekend. I am also starting Borderlands 2. But, in the end, I am just killing time until Dishonored.
  • winner2 - October 6, 2012 5:28 p.m.

    Going to be killing time until I get a chance to play dishonored. Got some birthday money though so I'm playing with the idea of buying a psp and getting a monster hunter game for it to give me something to play.
  • GoldenEagle1476 - October 7, 2012 6:11 a.m.

    Finally beat Mass Effect 3, which is giving me something to think about for the rest of the weekend.
  • silas-klug - October 7, 2012 12:36 p.m.

    Star Wars battlefront 2. Because I just bought it again for my PC. And it was my favorite for ps2. Good memories associated with it. Lots of firsts on it.
