What Are You Playing This Weekend?

What Are You Playing This Weekend?

What do you think I’m gonna be playing this weekend? What kinda dumb ass question is this? I’ve been waiting a goddamn 100 years for my game to be coming out – you think I’m gonna be stuck at home playing Sonic the Hedge-ama-hog? Hell no.

So yeah – in addition to playing my very own video game, which is in stores now – actually it was in-stores yesterday thanks to those no-good sons-a-bitches over at Toys R Us and EB Games, but I digress.

Anyway – I was saying – this weekend, in addition to playing my own game, I’ll be playing your sister, your mum. Hell, even your Grandma if she puts on that nice dress she has.

But… [sigh]what are you playing this weekend?


  • Since the -log has been disabled in the full version, and the console commandline hasn’t been cracked yet, I probably won’t be playing Duke Nukem this weekend… Although no matter how many times I tell myself that’s a lie.

    I doubt I’ll be playing it all the way through though, just enough to get a taste… Damnit, I’m playing the whole thing and I just don’t want to admit it!

    Otherwise it’ll be Red Faction, Witcher 2, more Bad Company 2, or possibly Assassins Creed Brotherhood.

    I have taken all of next week off work just to play games, so I’ll probably end up getting all those games completed.

  • Same thing I play every weekend Pinky… L.A. Noire, MtG, plus some added 3DS virtual console games. Maybe Outland too.

  • I’ll be playing ‘how many Pigcops can I beat to death while under the influence of steroids and beer’.

    After finishing DN3D again (that’s gotta be the fifth time) last week, I’m guessing the number will be about….5000, but my math sucks when I’m under the influence.

  • Hmm good question. SO many games to play.
    Im over the halfway point in vvvvvvv and i have died 1000 times so more death in that game i think. Also plants vs zombies which is really addictive and maybe some trialz HD if i feel up to it.

  • I think I’m gonna play me some Barbie Horse Adventures. I’ve been meaning to finish that for YEARS!

    Wonder what Duke thinks of *them* apples? Yep, I’ll be feeding my horses apples.

  • I can’t pick up DNF until next week (at the earliest) so I’ll probably being playing duke 3D on the XBLA and crying salty tears of shame.

    Possibly some Crysis 2 multiplayer. Also, my friend loaned me a copy of Brink and it’s not terrible.

  • I am pretty much going to be playing Madden all weekend, got to get my practice in before Madden 12

    other then that will attempt to finish LA Noire but its just so boring I am finding it hard to bring myself to play it anymore!

  • Going to be playing Duke Nukem Forever Duke. Why the hell would I play anything else? Anyone else who wants to play something else can blow it out their ass. 12 years to wait, good to have you back Duke

  • My vid card is weaker than a pig cop waiting for execution atm, do it’s doubtful i’ll be playing duke 🙁 Most likely Mortal Kombat I’d say. Maybe more Secret of Mana

    • Good luck with that kid. My ‘sister’ is as ugly as shit. And you best make an appointment with the Doc in advance if you want to play soccer with my testicles.

      Everyone knows that Duke’s got BALLS OF STEEL.

      • I’m going to take Dukes mum, Dorothy Nukem out for a nice steak dinner… and then I will never call her again.

  • Battlefield Bad Company, some Frozen Synapse, and most likely not DNF. Sorry Duke, you’re looking worse than an octogenarian’s shrivelled testicles after a dip in an icy pool in the Arctic. But I guess that means more twins for you, eh?

    • Hells yes. Awsome series, around the same time as Duke 3D! It is all coming full circle. They just announced the 4th in the series so I am hoping it will be half decent. Anyone seen anything at E3 about it? Seems like duke’s kind of game too…

      • Na nothing else heard about it 🙁
        Yeah, we setup 6 old P4’s to run it, with old CRT monitors, just to really feel nostalgic!

  • Duke Nukem Forever. Because I wasted so much time with your game when I was 10 years old, running the shareware version on my mum’s PC. It was THAT game that made me grow my Fistbeard.


    YOU ARE MY GOD! I can only hope to be as manly, badass and fucking ace as you are.

  • My pile o’ shame was 2-4 games a week ago.

    Now it’s > 25.

    I’m going to finish Uncharted tonight (if it kills me!) and then tackle Uncharted 2 over the weekend.

    After that, I have a myriad of franchises to get into (including every Final Fantasy game ever released on any Playstation system, all Metal Gear Solid games, Farenheit and Heavy Rain, Bully: Scholarship Edition [which is REALLY surprisingly fun, better than GTAIV by a mile], KOTOR 2, and I’m sure there are some I’ve missed)

  • Well I just bought DNF, so hopefully that.

    Ace Combat Joint Assault
    Enslaved Odyssey to the West (just started that last night, it is pretty fun)
    Dead Nation
    AC Brotherhood

  • DNF… Rift… Dirt 3… Red Faction Armageddon… maybe others…

    finished adding all my games to my ign profile and i have waaaaaay too much to play

  • SSFIV Arcade Edition and Beyond Good and Evil HD on PS3, try and get my Space Marine Captain to level 20 on DoW2 Retribution Last Stand. Maybe level the Chaos Sorcerer, but that’s pretty painful till you get teleport.

    Debating starting Link’s Awakening DX on 3DS….. it still doesn’t feel right though, I grew up on the original green and grey version. But, I’ll have to make peace with it.

  • I’ve got an order of DNF being shipped to me in Japan, but wont be here till monday :(. I’ll probably try to finish Crysis 2 this weekend.

    Initial reports of DNF are that it’s… very bad. I played the demo and had the same thoughts, but thought the full version would fix a lot of problems. Apparently not. The biggest things I’m reading that they got ‘wrong’ with DNF:

    -Duke is juvenile, not badass. He is supposed to be Ash Williams, and DNF made him Superbad
    -The controls are sluggish and restrictive – the FOV is horrible and the mouse acceleration is worse
    -Quick Time Events. Do i have to say more?
    -Two limits on weapons and regenerating health. I know this has become the ‘standard’ but this is NOT duke. Duke does not hide behind rocks. Duke rips out a pig cops spine and then patches up bullet wounds with a first aid kit. The two weapon limit is also very frustrating, as many weapons in duke’s arsenal are very situational (such as the shrink ray), meaning you will often find yourself ditching them for more practical weapons (like the rail gun)
    -The vehicle controls are horrid. Again, something I was hoping they improved from the demo which they apparently havent.
    -The AI is really stupid. Like, REALLY stupid. It’s a shame that a game like FEAR, released years ago has smarter AI than new releases.

    The humor and the ‘consolfied’ elements are what I’m dreading. It looks like duke will go out not with a bang, but a whimper.

  • On my way to JB to pick up my copy of DNF!!!!

    Other than shooting aliens all weekend, I will be playing M&M: Clash of Heroes & Outland.

  • I’m unfortunately pretty busy this weekend, but I will find time to play Infamous 2, Minecraft and, time permitting, some Dirt 3.

    I won’t be playing DNF, although I might rent it in a couple of weeks.

  • I’ll be playing Minecraft, Magicka, Company of Heroes.

    What, Duke is an admin?

    Oh, I mean “While I listen to Van Halen and AC/DC”.

  • I’m gonna play the best goddamn game of Furiously Studying for University I have ever played. Top score for me, I can see it now.

  • no more heroes: heroes paradise!!!!
    whitch makes me think, who’s idea was it to have the subtitle of the game be the same word as the last word of the series? it’s hard to say…

  • Staring at Steam hoping they mess up and switch “Pre-Load” over to “Play” by mistake… otherwise there will be no Duke for me this weekend.
