What Are You Playing This Weekend?

This weekend your temp ed has some Dad duty on the cards tomorrow, so I'll be playing some three-year-old friendly games.

That usually means a mix of kid hands on like Mario Kart Wii, Super Rub-a-Dub and Calling All Cars, and hands off as he watches me play some G and PG rated stuff. This weekend that's probably going to be some catch up on Forza 3 and Need for Speed Shift. And maybe some Vancouver 2010?

It's an interesting battle finding the right balance in a game that keeps them interested while you play but they don't. But the iPhone steps up there, too, as you can always bust that out so they can play something like Real Racing along side you, content in the sense that they're participating.

Of course, we don't just play games... just to get that out there before I'm labelled...

What's spinning up for you this weekend?


    Lots of demo's for me this weekend. AvP, Bad Company 2 and Heavy Rain.

    Will try and get some more time with co-op in Borderlands, put in a nice 4 hour effort last night. This game shouldn't be played solo, so much better in co-op.

      I tried the AvP demo (PC). The developers have a LOT of work to do if they want to release a good game. Game Matching for PC, unbalanced gameplay, confusing controls and a heap of graphical glitches. The only reason I may consider picking this game up is in the hope that the singleplayer is any good.

    Darksiders tonight hopefully. I'm upto the first boss and got sidetracked about 3 weeks ago & have been yet to go back (stupid IRL getting in the road).

    Otherwise I'll be playing the fun game of "long distance running training", in which I'm going for a 5-7km run today and probably tomorrow in prep. for a 10km charity fun run in a few weeks time.

    well, i haven't been able to finish fallout 3 yet so i have 2 do that some time before new vegas so that might be this weekend. But i have some games i bought on holidays that i haven't finished and i'm sure modern warfare 2 will find its way in some how.

    The first Mass Effect. To put it straight, I'm not a RPG fan because I can't stand turn based action. But I do love action and a great story. It wasn't until Fallout 3 that my attitude began to change and realised that action + RPG can become friends. Now 4 hours into Mass Effect I can't put it down and can't wait to sink into it's sequel!

    probably more DoW2 co op with a mate, and some BC2 beta if i get the chance

      Lucky you've given it a chance, you won't regret it, especially the sequel.

    Mass Effect 2 for me, finished the first one just the other day.

    It was pretty cool to go from 1 straight to 2.

    BC2 PC beta, also picking up a copy of Inglorious bastards and Family guy SSS dark side on blu ray. That will keep me busy over the weekend =)

    You let your kid play with your iPhone? If I had one, or really if I had BOTH, I don't think I'd be game to put the two together lest one baby does something terrible to the other.

      My 3yo is almost entirely fluent in iPhone usage. She can navigate the menus, recognise and open the games she wants to play & for the most part figure out what to do. Bejewelled 2 is her #1 favourite along with some drawing/doodle app that makes noises when you draw things.

    Demon's Souls for me! Loving the challenge ;)

    Battlefield Bad Company 2 PS3 Demo, already sunk about 3-4hrs into it yesterday, can't wait for the final release. Also, gotta finish playing through Dante's Inferno...it's a decent game, but just seems to be the appetiser before the real thing, God of War III. Oh an the AvP demo...if the matchmaking actually finds me a game....

    Mass Effect 2, taking my time playing through all the side missions and getting the achievements out of the way. Also teeing up a copy of Bioshock 2, already have one on preorder but I'm not sure which edition my local Gametraders is getting.

    I may see if I can get my hands on the Battlefield Bad Company 2 demo. If not, I'll get the AvP demo and have some fun! :D

    I'm gonna finish mopping up the achievements in Fallout 3... and if I can muster up the testes to finish Dragon Age, that'd be great too.

    Still playing Mass Effect 2.

    Picked up Mass Effect 1 for cheap yesterday, so I'll be playing that. Also downloaded Zombie Apocalypse and Pinball FX off XBLA last night, so I'll be spending some time on those as well.

    I'll be playing A Boy and his Blob and if I'm really lucky and my copy of Tatsunoko vs Capcom comes in the mail then I'll be playing that too.

    Probably not though. I bought off CD-Wow.

      Never buy from cdwow

    Just playing through Dante's Inferno and I'm going to give the Heavy Rain demo a whirl tonight if I can find a box of tissues

    It's black leather and capes for me. Bayonetta and Batman.

    Just finished mass effect on my laptop for the second time while holidaying in noosa. All set for me2 now!!!

    Last night I picked up Mass Effect 2 and Mirror's Edge incredibly cheaply, will be trying to divide my time between them, maybe GTAIV (to which I'm currently addicted) and Metal Gear Solid 2 (which I found last week), of course with kids I only have a finite window to play all these great adults only games!

    Aliens VS Predator demo on XBL
    Halo 3
    Modern Warfare 2
    Left 4 Dead 2

    And i might play some Heavy Rain demo and bioshock 2 (got it early from the webz) :D

    I'm on the fence, just finished Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. Which I got with my second hand PS3. Have to choose between continuing with my Fable 2, starting Bioshock again (never finished the 15% odd play-through I started last year) or trying out Killzone 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum or three of the other games I got with the 2nd hand PS3.

    Any suggestions, I'm thinking I should finish either Fable 2 or start and finish Bioshock.

    Going to atempt to finish off Darksiders and see how far I can get in FFCC: The Crystal Bearers. I'm only a short way through the game and it's combat is already starting to bore me. But I hear it gets better later on.

    I also wanna look around for a copy of Mass Effect on PC, which is really hard to find now, even though I saw like three copy's last week in Gametraders and some EB stores. I don't really wanna play it on 360, and I can't play Mass Effect 2 until I've beaten the first one. :(

    since it's now up on the PSN in AUS Final Fantasy 8 is now sitting on my final fantasy collectors edition PSP alongside final fantasy 7 and Dissidia in the umd slot, now i can take squall, cloud and tifa wherever I go, BADANG! Final Fantasy obsessed you say? Something has to occupy me til FF13 :P

    mw so sick off all the campers on mw2
