What Are You Playing This Weekend?

What Are You Playing This Weekend?Dragon Quest IX, StarCraft II, Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, Scott Pilgrim, Hydro Thunder, Red Dead Redemption (still!), BioShock 2’s Protector Trials DLC, Lost Planet 2 co-op (still!), Puzzle Quest 2, Kane & Lynch 2, Alan Wake: The Signal…

Who said winter was a dead time for gaming?

So that’s my weekend of gaming lined up. What’s yours?


  • Scott Pilgrim isn’t out until Tuesday…

    I’ll still be playing Castlevania HD, and maybe some more SC2.

    • I’m sure Mr Wildgoose has been lucky enough to recieve the game before the rest of us…and I doubt you will see it on PSN before Thursday.

      As for my gaming, I wll be playing SC2 and Demon’s Souls.

  • Yakuza 3, Half Life 2, NBA 2K10, might re-start Halo 3: ODST in split-screen.

    Alan Wake: The Signal is waiting for me, too.

  • DQIX arrived off play-asia during the week and I am about three hours into that and forsee it consuming my weekend.

    I also discovered Minecraft and bought the paid version of that last night, so that is going to take up a heap of hours, also.

  • More Blur. Maybe go back to Just Cause 2 and mess around, that was fun. Bit of a slow time for games if you’re not into Starcraft 2, really.

  • Demon’s Souls!
    Went back to it after Andrew’s Reader Review. Kind of wandering aimlessly between worlds rather than progressing though.

    Man Centipedes of 3-2 gross me out. Bug-scorpion things are bad enough, but hey, putting HUMAN FACES on it is just the icing on the cake.

  • I picked up DJ Hero a few days back for $49, and I’m enjoying once I worked out how to play it. Did some StarCraft 2 with some mates last night, which was awesome, and that was just Multiplayer, I’ve hardly even tackled the single player yet. I think some Burnout Paradise and Red Dead, once again I’v hardly touched it, AND I put a new XBOX 360 on lay-by this week, so will get that soonish…., and want to order the signature edition of Gran Turismo 5……

  • I borrowed Animal Crossing: Let’s Go to the City from a friend the other day, so I’ll be playing that a bit. Also I’m playing through Kingdom Hearts again.

    How’s Dragon Quest IX anyway Dave?

  • I might finally finish metroid prime this weekend. Then on to mp2 🙂

    other than that, I don’t have all that much free time this weekend. Tap defence on my iPod will probably get a little play. I’ve been addicted to that this week.

  • finish off me some SC2 campaign

    and then im not sure Borderlands DLC was on the agenda but with the rumors of the new stuff im not sure if i should w8 and do it all at once

  • I’m going old school this weekend. Still working my way through Might and Magic 7 that I started last week! Loving every minute of it!

  • MW2 – trying to finish High Explosive on Veteran (we’ve got 2 stars!)

    Gears 2 – We’re on wav 14 for Insane.

    inFamous – Evil cole on hard difficulty, about half way through the story

    And some LBP, because of that new trailer released earlier this week makes me want LBP2 even more!

    Also, I might pick up Lost Planet 2.

    • I think with MW2, high explosive of the top of my head is the second last one. There is a YouTube clip that shows you how to complete it on veteren, you should look it up. Its very easy to complete.


      • True, but it’s so much more satisfying when we complete it on our own merit and not just figure it out via the interwebs. I felt like a genius when I did that arkham asylum challenge where you had to blow 3 people up at once. A genius, I say!

  • Though I have Crackdown 2 to start, Singularity waiting in the wings, Read Dead to finish (still… also) and Cat Physics on my wife’s phone… I know that the moment I boot Starcraft II the weekend will disappear in a haze of multiplayer skirmishes and pathetic attempts at getting gold achievements in all the challenges.

    I hate RTS, really I do… but Starcraft is a whole different beast. Try it, people. You might be surprised 🙂

  • Finishing off MGS:Peace Walker and then getting started in Star Ocean: The Last Hope and possibly Resonance of Fate if I’m bothered to relearn everything.

  • I’ve got some mates over tonight. Games we shall be playing:

    Goldeneye (N64, no Roms for me!)
    Quake 3 Arena
    Unreal Tournament
    Doom III
    Star Wars Battlefronts II
    Battlefield 1943

    It will be GLORIOUS.

  • Just got Puzzle Quest 2 on the DS, I’ll also be playing God of War Collection, Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena and some Bejeweled Twist.

    I pre-ordered DQ IX (which will be a first for me) and I plan to get K&L 2: Dog Days and Mafia II in the next coming days.

  • Still trying to put time into FFXIII… is it bad that I kinda have to force myself to try and finish this game? =\

  • Double header in football means less gaming this weekend but I’m dying to get Dirt 2 over with. I loved the first game but with No2 the last 3-4 hours seem like a major grind. Also so keen to get onto the god of war collection as I missed them the first time around.

  • Gonna try finish off the DMC series, about 3/4 way through DMC2. After that it’s onto Brutal Legend then a second play through of Killzone 2. Might be more than a weekends worth but my guitar also needs playing.

  • Rented and beat Modern Warfare 2 yesterday. It was pretty fun. Soap looks like he could beat the crap out of Chuck Norris. Today I’ve just brought Oblivion on Steam and I’m currently downloading it. I already have it on 360 but I decided to get it on pc so I could get some mods for it. Also I’ll be playing a bit of L4D2 and TF2 like always.

  • My guitar, LAWLZ.

    A REAL ONE too!! Not like Guitar Hero or any of that shiz!!
