What Are You Playing This Weekend?

Easy one this weekend. I will be cantering across New Austin, shooting rabbits and losing all my money playing horseshoes.

What? There’s a story? Actual missions?


Who else is playing Red Dead Redemption this weekend?


    • Slowly making my way through the story in Redemption, in between poker, and bounties, and obtaining new outfits, and scouting for new horses… looking forward to mexico, and possibly coming across one of the numerous human/animal glitches.

  • We are having some rainy weather here in Canberra today so it is perfect gaming weather. I think RDR is going to be the pick of the weekend for most console players.

    I am definitely going to put some good hours in to RDR this weekend. I might pick up Mod Nation racers as well so the wife and I can play PS3 together. Buuuut, that may not happen when I get sucked in to RDR.

  • Was going to buy it last night, but all the shops shut at like 6pm. What a jip! Oh well, I was having second thoughts anyhow.

    • Dude, give us the word on Alpha Protocol, i was hyped for this game for awhile, and in the last week it seems like all the love is gone.
      Dud or what?

      • yeah the reviews you see around are pretty accurate, the gameplay feels garbage if you’ve played mass effect 2. I’m enjoying the story but I wouldn’t really suggest it to anyone.

        At most it’ll just make you wish you were playing mass effect.

  • I’ve got a copy of Red Dead Redemption Limited Edition for PS3 sitting on my shelf, but I can’t play it until I can afford a PS3 in early July, it sure is a pretty box though 🙂

    Otherwise, I’ve been playing Half Life 2 on Mac 🙂

    • Gameplay-wise, the ending is a bit disappointing. Story-wise, however, it is excellent, leaving as many questions as it answers, while still bringing the narrative to some sort of conclusion.
      I’m eagerly awaiting the DLC.

      This weekend: RDR and Pokemon HeartGold…

      • Sounds interesting but I like my games to end when they end, and DLC to be an optional extra. I would fear that the only way to really get to the end of this story would be to keep buying DLC, which may never end, a bit like Lost.

    • I played that this weekend too. I put it on hard to to stretch it out longer…or so I thought. I didn’t like it. The story seemed like it was written like a 15 year old kid who was trying too hard. Maybe they should have just asked Stephen King…Back to Resonance of Fate for me.

  • havent taken red dead out since i got it. my name is my gamertag, feel free to hit me up for a game anyone

  • Playing RDR single player, just go into Mexico. May sprinkle in some Multiplayer, and a clan night for Uncharted 2 with Double Cash

  • Red Dead all the way… might try and put some time into the Single Player this weekend, have basically played about an hour of Single Player… and well over 24hrs in Free Roam!


  • little Alpha protocol little blur

    finish off the story in RDR then i might leave it for a bit

    Modnation racers(hopefully the mentioned load time patch comes faster 😛 ) because its offically replaced the hell out of mario kart

  • Im going to get stuck into Lost Planet 2, see how we go hey.

    Also will be playing Football, but with such little relevance to gaming I will leave it there.

  • I didn’t enjoy GTAIV (I got annoyed with the constant backtracking and travelling etc when dying in missions so gave up) so I’m passing on Red Dead Redemption, at least of for the time being.

    Currently playing Final Fantasy XIII. It’s funny that everybody bags it out for the lack of free-roaming, but that actually makes it far more enjoyable for me- I never finished X or XII because I got so distracted grinding levels and stuff that I got bored and lost interest. FFXIII is keeping me focused on the task at hand and it’s great.

    Also achievement-whoring Wolverine, just got the hard mode one left. Normally I don’t go to so much effort for achievements but the “complete game” status is sooo close I can’t help but go for it…

  • Bioshock 2. I’m just getting through it slowly at my own pace.

    Nothing satisfies me more than laying out a ridiculous combination of mini turrets, trap rivets, proximity mines and then watching it all blow up nicely when the splicers come along.

  • I’m terrible at the horseshoes too. I might just have to wait for the Playstation Move so I can blame my inaccuracy on my actual throwing skill rather than my “golf-swing-meter” game skill!

  • Supreme Commander 2 PC (playing right at this moment), new Prince of Persia, and as much as I dislike FF XIII, probably will spend 4 hours grinding to gain some XP.

  • yeah in between nursing this hangover i’ll be playing a bit of RDR and MW2 as always.. feel free to hit me up.. PSN: Cephalxn

  • Just finished No More Heroes 2. Probably move ontp FFXIII if I’m bothered to overlook the straight lines…

  • finished Alan wake and Red dead redemption in 3 days not much to do in red dead achievements are easy playing alpha protocol Ben 10 rise of hex Pokemon platinum and dragon ball raging blast

  • Super Street Fighter IV! I now have a reason to download the PS3 update, I put it off since it came out which was probably more than a month ago. I’ll probably get my butt kicked online but oh well!

  • I’m actually done with RDR, played a bit of MP this morning and that’s that for a while. ~30 hours in a week is enough. Hired ModNation Racers for the rest of the weekend.

  • Oblivion and some awesome Mario kart wii action have taken up my Saturday. Nothing is more fun and frustrating at the same time than playing Mario kart online 😀

  • My lovely wife got me two Gundam models (1/100 Strike Noir and 1/100 Avalanche Exia)for my birthday 🙂

    I DID plan on playing Red Dead this weekend.

  • I finished RDR the other day, I was about to complain about the length of the game… turns out it was me who caused me to go through the game so quickly.

    It’s too addictive, there have been times where I’ve wanted to stop, but I just couldn’t. Something always came up (wanting to play poker, then bed, do oooone bounty, then bed, nah screw bed, I wanna do some missions).

    Never once felt like a chore.

  • No More Heroes 2. Such an awesome improvement over the first one, which I loved immensly anyway.

    Brought Yoshi’s Story for Virtual Console. Girlfriend and I are competing for best scores.

  • Playing Lost Planet 2 on PS3 all weekend.. Loving it. If you love Demon’s Souls, Monster Hunter or just a game with a good challenge, you’ll love Lost Planet 2.

  • Bad Company 2 Multiplayer, and a little Bioshock 2, trying to rank up but getting very shitted off by the explosive corpse perk, one of the last unlocks. People seems to run into a room just to die so the corpse can do all the damage, Meh!

  • Yes, it was certainly Red Dead Redemption all the way over the past weekend. Snagged my Deadly Assassin outfit last night – stylish and Dead Eye-rific!
