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

Posted by Sammy Barker

All of the day, all of the night

With the curtains closed on another week of work, it’s time to put away your pens and focus on some good old gaming. Once again, we’ve managed to coax several Push Square team members into sharing their plans for the weekend, but we want to know what’s filling your itinerary, too. Feel free to submit your schedule for the next couple of days in the comments section below. Go on, we won’t bite.

Sammy Barker, Associate Editor

I’ve got so much that I want to play this weekend that I don’t really know where to start. Top of my agenda is Sniper Ghost Warrior 2, but I’m also hoping to dig into Guacamelee! at some point. I’m also pretty excited about Table Mini Golf on the Vita. What? I’d rather play that than actually, y’know, watch the Masters.

Mike Mason, Assistant Editor

As part of my final drive to destroy my backlog, I'll be blinking my way through Dishonored on the faithful PS3. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to manage a stealth run – it’s so tempting to use the powers for nefarious means.

Jon Wahlgren, Editor at Large

I’ll be playing Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Coming down from the world of BioShock Infinite, I'm in that annoying window where most games seem a little less rich. I have faith in Platinum to slice me out of that funk with what so far seems like a positively nutty entry in Metal Gear, another world I enjoy visiting.

Asher Asghar, Staff Writer

It's round two of Star Wars Pinball (specifically the sublime Empire Strikes Back table) and Persona 4 Golden for me. I love the former’s old-school high-score appeal, while the latter has won me over, despite my initial frustrations.

Robert Ramsey, Staff Writer

I’m on clean-up duty this weekend. After finishing Guacamelee! for our review, I’ll be trawling back through a few areas in the hope of finding a few bits and pieces that I missed. Now that I have access to Juan’s full arsenal, finding everything should be easy. Other than that, I’ll be jumping back into the lovey-dovey Tales of Graces F, another game that’s in need of 100 per cent completion.

Simon Waldron, Staff Writer

After staying up way past my bedtime last weekend to finish up BioShock Infinite, I'm hoping to play through more of Metal Gear Rising: Revengence – and get to bed on time!


So, that’s what we’re up to – but what about you? What’s keeping your PS3 and Vita busy at the moment? Let us know in the comments section below.

I just finished Demon’s Souls which was great. I might try to grab a few more trophies for it.

I'm also thinking of picking up the first Dead Space which I have had been thinking about getting for awhile now.

Just decided to give Assassins Creed 3 a try after finding it cheap in a store. Desmond is still a tool of massive proportion, but the new setting makes a change from the stale digital Italy of Brotherhood and Revelations.

@Splat I'm impressed that you finished it so quickly. I never completed it but I remember spending a lot of time on it.

This weekend I'm finally getting back into rock band 3 after like 8 months on hiatus.

@ztpayne7 - I have a bad habit of when I start a game only playing that game till I beat it or get tired of it. I have never been one to jump around from game to game. I don't know why.

I am playing Guacamelee. Trying to finish up 100% before I start it on hard. Some of the secret area platforming parts can really be very challenging. Curse you Tree Tops!!

I am playing Tomb Raider PS3, and Urban Trials. I got all the stars, but am working on finding all the money. I wish I was playing that new Metal Gear, but the red box did not have it lol.
