What Are You Playing This Weekend?

A copy of Alan Wake landed on my desk Friday afternoon. From the brief time I spent with it yesterday, I’m confident it will be consuming most of my time this weekend.

I can’t say any more just yet. But you’ll be hearing my thoughts on Remedy’s “psychological thriller” next week.

What are you playing this weekend?


  • I hope you enjoy it; can’t wait to see the review 😀

    Anyway, I’ll see if I can finish Sam and Max: The Penal Zone, and will go see Iron Man 2 tonight. 😀

  • Hurry it up Dave!

    I haven’t had an Alan Wake fix in a while. Really wanna know some first impressions…

    • Agreed, looking forward to the first impressions of Alan Wake (already your comments sound promising though).

      In the meantime, it’s all Whispered World for me. Up to chapter 3 and it is the most amazing game I’ve played in a long time. Recommend it to ANYONE. If you haven’t got it, go get it.

  • Not too much, waiting for Steam on Mac, and drooling about Red Dead Redemption, best Birthday present EVER!

  • Probably some Final Fantasy XIII, StarCraft 2 Beta (I used to be good at SC 10 years ago, why do I suck so hard now?), maybe some Bad Company 2.

    Probably also playing the “Cleanup time because stuff is all over the house and I don’t know where anything is” game.

  • Super Street Fighter IV. Getting hurt bad.

    BF:BC, MW2.

    Maybe crack open Mass Effect I picked up for $5 from Game.

  • A tired UPS delivery guy showed up at 5PM yesterday with my bundle of Splinter Cell: Conviction, Assassin’s Creed II and Just Cause 2.
    Choices, choices.

  • Finish Sakura Wars then start on Monster Hunter Tri and continue with occasional rounds of Ogre Battle 64.

  • Really interested in impressions of Alan Wake – unfortunately no matter how good it is I’ll be putting my funds towards Red Dead Redemption. Really poor choice of release date – If it reviews well I’ll pick it up after it drops in price…

  • Seriously need to farm CPs for FFXIII, then maybe some Twilight Princess again, plus start playing Bioshock…

  • You bastard. Send Alan Wake to me. Now.


    God I can’t believe it’s coming out this month… Seems like it’s been years away forever… if that makes sense? I might even pre order it, maybe I’ll even take a day off work :p

    As for me, I’ve promised myself I’d spend a few hours in Battlefield BC2, but I’m also going to spend some time with Borderlands and GoW III…

  • Resonance of fate is really grabing me at the moment, far more than ff13 did. But i really should get around to finishing mass effect again so i can transfer my progres…

  • Been slaving away at Star Ocean 4 trying to get 1000/1000, so I think I’ll give the grinding a rest and play something like Red Alert 3.

  • Despite having Bad Company 2, I’ve gone back to BF1943, quite fun…

    Might throw in some Just Cause 2 also…

  • Still working through my Steam sale back catalog and partying like it’s 2004. Finished Armed and Dangerous this week and have moved onto Escape from Butcher Bay as part of the Dark Athena pack.

    I’m living in teh future!!

  • Monster Hunter Tri and then some Monster Hunter Tri and maybe after that a little Monster Hunter Tri.

    I can’t get enough!

  • Missed out on the Reach Beta codes bungie flooded their website with this morn (over 1000!) so I’ll be biding my time with Halo 3. Argh, anticipation!

  • Monster Hunter Tri, Starcraft II Beta, Super Street Fighter IV and more(lots more) Pokemon SoulSilver!

    I really need to just concentrate on one hardcore game at a time…but I just can’t help myself!

  • Alan Wake? Say… Red Dead Redemption comes out that same time…

    I’ll be hunting treasures and going on a hard/crushing walkthrough in Uncharted 2.

  • Just a bit of SFIV with my TE stick. I’ve got a copy of SSFIV coming to me from the UK but i feel it will be delayed for a fair bit thanks to mr. icelandic volcano.

  • Well, I’m looking to finish HAWX, which was much better than I thought it would be. It’s effectively Ace Combat lite, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
    That and play some more of the Starcraft 2 beta, and hopefully stop getting my arse kicked.

  • Not much gaming at all on the agenda because of uni work increasing 110% lately but looking forward to your Alan Wake preview which has got alot of my attention at the moment. Will be playing some Splinter Cell Conviction (i was late to the party) and some Split/Second demo – played it through a few times and seemed good.

  • Rented out Splinter Cell Conviction to play it, to see what all the fuss was about.

    If that’s the end of Sam Fishers story, it’s a pretty damn good way to tie it all up, really enjoyed it. Yeah it was short, but it was *damn* good. Loved EVERY moment of it, also love the new style of gameplay. Very cool.

  • Halo 3, heh with the Reach Beta coming out soon I’m eager to get stuck x100. Single, Multi, whatever mode it is in Halo, I always get stuck at the wrong moments.

    With a side serve of some Company Of Heroes Multiplayer.


  • I’d be VERY interested in Alan Wake…
    … if they were releasing it on the PC like they said they would!

    I own an Xbox, but i still won’t buy this game until they make a PC version

  • Just got my hands on Just Cause 2. Half an hour in I have no idea what I’m ‘supposed’ to be doing but what I will be doing is tooling around, shooting guys and grappling things to other things 😀

  • I played Just Cause 2 most of the time, mixed in with some Modern Warfare and Killzone 2 on Sunday arvo with a couple of mates who just got PS3’s.
