Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue Four

Posted by Sammy Barker

Fresh to death

The heavens have opened where we are, which should give us the perfect excuse to spend the weekend inside. But regardless of whether the sun’s shining in your neck of the woods, we want to know what’s keeping your consoles busy over the next couple of days. We’ll go first, but don’t forget to leave your gaming agenda in the comments section.

Sammy Barker, Associate Editor

I intend to live out my childhood fantasy this weekend and find out who is the superior superhero in Injustice: Gods Among Us. Keeping with the comic book theme, I’ll also be pretending that I’m a superman in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD, and I may even find time to make some new friends in Thomas Was Alone.

Mike Mason, Assistant Editor

I'll be staring into the coffee to reach a verdict on Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut for Push Square's review. It's an acquired taste for sure; we'll let you know whether it's worth venturing into the strange world of Greenvale soon.

Jon Wahlgren, Editor at Large

I’ll be playing Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. I haven't put as much time into this as I would've liked, so I hope to slice and dice my way through to a cyborg apocalypse.

Ben Tarrant, Staff Writer

This week has consisted of me reviewing Dead Island: Riptide, so I’ve been busy removing zombie heads and exploring a tropical paradise. This weekend, though, I intend to renovate my Hearthfire home and mop up some quests in the brilliant The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Robert Ramsey, Staff Writer

I’m grinding my way through Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen this weekend in order to write up a review for this glorious re-release. Aside from the frequent giant griffon attacks, everything’s going rather smoothly.

With our gobs given a good workout, we’re handing the microphone over to you. What’s keeping your consoles busy this weekend? Let us know in the comments section below.

I will be finishing up Dead Space 2. I'm looking forward to your Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen review Robert. I was going to get it this weekend but then I saw Tomb Raider on sale on PSN and went with it.



ShogunRok said:

@Splat - I'm glad you're looking forward to it. We'll be reviewing both the re-released original game and the expansion together as a whole package, so be prepared!

Playing Mortal Kombat (online, trying to boost those Respect Points) and GoW: Ascension single player.



Splat said:

@ShogunRok - I'm pretty sure I'm going to get to end up getting it. I just figured I would grab Tomb Raider while it's on sale. I'm actually kinda glad I didn't get Dragon’s Dogma when it came out because the re-release sounds like the better deal.

Yay, I'm playing Skyrim as we speak. Haven't really had time for the expansions at all. Same goes for GTA4, I've been playing TBOGT for the first time too.

I'll be putting most of my gaming time into Injustice but MLB The Show and Draw Slasher will also be worked into the mix.

Finishing Bioshock, Dragonborn DLC and toying with Catherine.
Dragon's Dogma was a game I always planed to play but somehow missed the first time around. The phrase "glorious re-release" for Dark Arisen has certainly sparked my interest. As Star Trek seems to be fighting it out with Colonial Marines for the worst Movie adaption of the year, it just may be my next purchase.

Borderlands: Playing again, no clue why, just love it
Donkey Kong Country Returns: Love this game, alot harder than you would think
Sonic & Sega All Stars Transformed (Vita): gotta get the S rank stars!!!!!!!



Slapshot said:

I reviewed WRC: FIA World Championship a few month's back and after I figured out that disabling all of the assist and modifying the game's difficulty settings a bit turned it into an actual "rally racing" title that worthy of playing, I still haven't put the flipping game down. Haha

Okay, I lied. I played through BioShock Infinite and a whole bunch of other stuff too, but yeah... still playing WRC 3... and Pandora's Tower on Wii... Guacamelee!, and Fire Emblem Awakening.



CanisWolfred said:


I too look forward to your review. I wanna see how it improved on the original, since that one sounded like an otherwise great game that simply had some problems holding it back.

Anyways, I'm playing BioShock on the PS3 with my bro. We're about a third of the way through already. Spooky stuff, surprisingly.

Dead Island Riptide with my Co-op friend and man my left thumb hurt after all those Judgement kills



Visiblemode said:

Finishing up Bioshock 2 in order to move on to infinite. I know it's not a direct sequel but I even like to play spiritual successors in order. Bioshock 2 was massively underrated btw, imo. Even I was a bit hard on it at first because it's hard to compete with the story of the first game. However if you hang in there the gameplay definitely shines and is really fun.
