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

Posted by Sammy Barker

Smiles like sunshine

The sun has set on another work week, and like many of you, our attention is firmly focused on another weekend of gaming gluttony. To maintain tradition, we’ve caught up with a number of team members in order to learn what’s on their agenda over the next couple of days, but we’d love to know what’s keeping your consoles busy in the comments section.

Sammy Barker, Associate Editor

I’ll be dodging the intermittent showers currently drenching the centre of England by staying cooped up indoors this weekend. I’m having a blast with my PlayStation Vita at the moment, so I’ll probably be playing more Soul Sacrifice. I also appear to have developed an attachment to the middling Farming Simulator, which is ironic considering my reluctance to actually go outside.

Mike Mason, Assistant Editor

The latest PlayStation Store sale has seen me grab Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch for the princely sum of £17.99, and after two evenings of strife, clearing my hard drive, and downloading 21GB of data, I'm just about ready to play. Hopefully I'll find a couple of hours to get started on the Studio Ghibli adventure.

Greg Giddens, Reviews Editor

I've just downloaded Final Fantasy VIII onto my Vita, so I'm hoping that I can spend some time with the classic JRPG over the weekend. I’ve always enjoyed the game’s complex mechanics, and I still remember it being one of the most visually impressive titles on the original PlayStation. I'm hoping that the years haven’t washed away its appeal.

Ben Potter, Staff Writer

This weekend I'll be polishing off the trophies in Dishonored for that illusive 50th Platinum Trophy. It's taken me a long time to finally get around to playing it, but I'm thrilled to announce that the good reviews were totally justified.

Ben Tarrant, Staff Writer

I’ll be playing some more of BioShock Infinite on 1999 mode, reaching desperately for that Platinum Trophy. I may also sink to the depths of the original BioShock once again, as I’ve been missing Rapture. I guess it’s going to be a bit of a BioShock-themed weekend for me.

Robert Ramsey, Staff Writer

This weekend I’ll be hard at work trying to master Persona 4 Arena. I’m not a huge fan of technical fighters, but I gained a confidence boost when I thought I was playing on the Beginner difficulty, only to realise I was actually winning on Easy. Yeah, I’m just that talented.

Simon Thornton, Staff Writer

I'll be adorning my cuddly little dwarf with all kinds of loot this weekend in Lord of the Rings: War in the North. It may not be as good as some of the Lord of the Rings games from the PS2 generation, but I’m having lots of fun playing multiplayer with friends nevertheless.

Now that we’ve given our gobs a damn good workout, we’re pointing the spotlight in your direction. What’s on your gaming agenda this weekend? Let us know in the comments section below.

Epic said:

Just finished Sleeping Dogs so now I don't know what to do I think I will just play a bit of Zombie Tycoon 2 Multiplayer for a while.



TromboneGamer said:

Fuse Demo and... the rest of my gaming will likely be on other platforms. Primarily Monster hunter on 3DS though.



Squiggle55 said:

No time for me this weekend. Play for me. If I have any time at all I might fire up the Rayman Legends Challenges App on Wii U.



hYdeks said:

I have the same mindset as Greg I guess, because I will be playing...

Final Fantasy VI on PSP, never played it before, been playing alot of FF lately.
Final Fantasy XIII on PS3, better game than I thought, love the combat
Borderlands 2 PS3, gotta level my Mechromancer up to lvl 61



Splat said:

I just got the Platinum Trophy for Sleeping Dogs today but will probably keep messing around with it.



Snorky said:

I'm really loving Soul Sacrifice at the moment! (Except for people trolling you and knocking everyone away from the boss sacrifice).



rastamadeus said:

Tomorrow I'll be starting Virtue's Last Reward while also playing around with Sly 4.



neumaus said:

Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires, and if I get bored, then I'll play one of the games on my Vita (just got Nun Attack last night :3).



Ginkgo said:

Dragons Dogma primarily and finishing Dragon born on Skyrim (hmm there may be a theme there). Intermittently playing Catherine and still have to get back to Bioshock, which I don't seem to have enjoyed as much as most. Will finish it, but it may be my last Bioshock game. Got bored with the first one too.



Gamer83 said:

Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Really liking this game, much better than the disappointing Invisible War which almost turned me away from the series.



Strofan7 said:

Assassins Creed Revelations and Mafia 2...trying to platinum some of my old games lying around.

Those damn feathers...



Slapshot said:

I'm still whipping and slashing my way through the towers of Pandora's Tower (Wii) and absolutely loving it. At some point though, I do plan to get through the FUSE demo today, as well.

@Mike Enjoy! Ni No Kuni is fantastic and a pure joy to play.



Sanquine said:

Did not have much time to play games this past weekend . Is there a review of Persona 4 Arena? I would like to see what Push Square thinks of the game.
