Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue Eleven
Posted by Sammy Barker
Bigmouth strikes again
The weekend has crept up on us like Sam Fisher in Splinter Cell: Blacklist. We’re mere weeks away from the onset of the autumn onslaught, which means that this is your last opportunity to clear up your backlog in preparation for titles such as Rayman Legends, Killzone: Mercenary, and a certain next generation system. But what’s keeping your current consoles busy over the next couple of days?

I’m playing Killer Is Dead, but I can’t really talk about that. I will be filling my downtime with BreakQuest: Extra Evolution and Floating Cloud God Saves the Pilgrims in HD, though. I’m absolutely determined to 100 per cent finish the former.

Every so often I get these urges; they're completely natural urges, and everybody has them. I get the urge to race fast cars. Fortunately, PlayStation Plus has me sorted this month, with the wonderful Need for Speed: Most Wanted. That’ll be my weekend of gaming, then.

This weekend I will be firing up my brand spanking new copy of DmC: Devil May Cry – I’ve kept moody Dante waiting too long. I was planning on playing a bit more of the new Tomb Raider, but I just can't get into the gameplay. Sorry, Lara!

I'll finally be getting around to playing The Walking Dead: 400 Days this weekend. I, as with many others, adored Lee and Clem's journey through Zombieland, and so I can't wait for the second season later this year.

If I get the chance, I'll return to two tough-cookie PlayStation Network games that I recently completed on the PlayStation 3. The first is WayForward's tip-top Castlevania-esque side-scrolling game BloodRayne: Betrayal, and the other is Killzone HD. Even though I Hel-gasped at the difficulty of both games, I had a lot of fun, and I’m eager to dive back in.

It's all about Zone of the Enders: HD Collection this weekend, as I try to finish off the original title. The only problem is that it really hasn't aged very well. The objectives are far too vague, the constant dialogue bogs everything down, and the gameplay is supremely repetitive. I can only hope that the second game scraps almost everything but the combat system – I seriously need my mech fix.
