What Are You Playing This Weekend?

What Are You Playing This Weekend?What are you guys planning to play this weekend? Me – I’ll be playing precisely zippo, since I’m going for a weekend snowboarding! Actually, I’m only a little bit excited about the snowboarding, since I’m not really that great. I’ll probably drag my 3DS along for the ride!

I still have Ocarina of Time to get through, so I’m thinking that once I finish snowboarding, and I’ve iced down my buttcheeks appropriately, I’ll try and blast through some of it. There’s a large group of my friends going, however, so I suspect I might get roped into something else during the trip.

What are you guys up to this weekend?


  • I too am going snowboarding this weekend, however this weekend will be extended by 8 days…

    … And will be in NZ 🙂

  • More Dragon Age and 3DS games like Resident Evil and Dead or Alive. I’ve also been powering through Outland, and while I can’t say that I really love it, I’ll stick it out to the end.

  • I’m also away for nearly a week, so not much.
    Maybe Minecraft if bored, because I know the pc where I’m going can run that, lol

  • Well, I have more home renovations to do this weekend plus I’ll be entertaining guests, but I will probably be tinkering with Minecraft, might try out Just cause 2 as well as try and do some of the Fallout New Vegas DLC.

    I was planning to play Team Fortress 2, but I played some last night and it’s really quite unenjoyable. I don’t know how people subject themselves to it.

  • I’ll be patiently waiting for Deus Ex, but as well as that if I get the time i’ll either be blowing stuff up in Just Cause 2 or blowing stuff up in Battlefield BC2..

  • I’ll be completing Toy Soldiers: Cold War to wrap up my Summer/Winter of Arcade coverage. Started off well, but started to get a bit sour. I’ll also log some time on SSFIV: Arcade Edition which I picked up cheap from JB yesterday.

    Next up: The PSN Play. I’ve bought each game, but won’t be able to review them on the week-to-week basis on account of flying to Thailaind for about 2 weeks at the end of September.

  • I went snowboarding for the first time last month, it was awesome!! (and painful)

    As for this weekend, I’ll be playing OoT 3D, and try to grab more stars in Mario Galaxy…so shiny…

    ..and anxiously waiting for Xenoblade to ship/arrive.

  • Planning to play a classic, Vigilante 8: 2nd Offense. Such an awsome classic, sad to see Luxoflux is gone. The slogan at the begining everytime you play the game is different which would always make me laugh.
    The opening slogans were even better in Star Wars: Demolition, from the same creators of Vigilante 8. Loved playing as either the Snowspeeder, AT-ST, Boba Fett or Rancor.

  • Finished Dead Space on Impossible last night and got the “Concodrance” Officer trophy. Nice one there, EA.

    So I am gonna start up Dead Space 2. If it’s half as good as DS1 then I am going to have a good weekend.

  • I’ve started a new Demon’s Souls game after realising I’d borked up my first character, so I’ll be slicing through that.

  • i will be playing either batman aa or witcher 2 if i get witcher 2. Killing time until deus ex and RO2 being my next games to play.

    • Also killing time waiting for RO2 and Deus Ex. Picked up Burnout Paradise yesterday, so going to give that a burl.

  • Well thanks to all the TAY peeps, I’m hooked on LoL so will probably be playing a fair bit of that. Although my free day tomorrow has just been half filled with my uncle and aunty’s baby shower, but hopefully that doesn’t go for too long!

  • Picking up a 3DS tonight & FF Tactics on DS, hopefully my order of 3DS games arrives in the mail today too:)
    I might also pick up Res Evil 5 Gold Edition too, as I never finished it

  • I finally got a computer that can actually run Team Fortress 2 decently, so I will be practicing that. I’m pretty terrible at the moment. 😛

    I do enjoy playing Medic though…

  • Meh, I’m going to knock over L.A.Noire DLC or AC Brotherhood DLC. A true sign of boredom. I’ve even finished my pile of shame. Lets face it. We’re all waiting for Deus EX.

  • Trying to fine-tune my Gouken in SSFIV:AE

    Halfway through Catherine so I’ll try to finish that.

    Starting Demon’s Souls

  • Picked up FarCry 2 off PSN this week, after having failed to get into it back on my 360, I’m going to sit down and give it whatfer. Everyone keeps telling me how amazing it is if you’ve got the patience for it.

    Got my copy of MGS3 Subsistence from eBay today as well. =D Shall be sitting down and indulging in some MGS3:S too!

  • wow! just can’t believe things on steam got even worse – The Warhammer 40K pack for the weekend deal is $179USD on the Australian store but only $99USD on the American store …

    This pricing hiking is getting worse daily …I’m stunned and shocked at the was steam is going at the moment.

  • I’m going to be putting more time into the very worthy peacewalker. What I won’t be playing is iOS games-exept for the retro rpg’s, I’m tired if the unsatisfying, compromised gaming experience the iPhone provides.

  • Mafia II finally!
    – both my copies arrived on the same day (Collector’s Edition from MightyApe and Director’s Cut from Ozgameshop) so I have all eight DLCs and a pretty artbook and soundtrack CD!
    – for anyone after a similar bundle (PC version) it’s <$20 for the CE with the physical bonuses and the Made Man DLC, and $25 for the DC which has a disc of the patched up 'GOTY' edition and another disc to install the other four car+clothing DLCs and all three of the Jimmy and Joe DLCs (including the one that was previously a PS3 exclusive/only purchasable on Steam from Eastern Europe)

    I might also try to play some Section 8: Prejudice… though I am not one of those lucky ones for whom GFWL is not a horribly dysfunctional inconvenience (I think my gamertag is taken by an alternate version of myself from an offline account with no LiveID… so I'm stuck with some random name instead… plus it keeps messing around with my hotmail login settings!)

    And if I decide to be sociable then perhaps also some uncut L4D2 or some EDF: Insect Armageddon (such a silly game; my current preferred loadout is Tactical armour (can place turrets/mines/radar) with a shotgun that fires swarms of homing rounds in three round bursts, and a grenade launcher where the grenades fragment into clusters of heat-seeking missiles!)

  • I will be playing Fallout 3 : New Vegas. Finished Old World Blues recently, planning to do more of the main story and hook into another DLC.

  • Going to aim to finish Bastion. Will be I think the second game this year I’ve managed to get enough time and keep interested long enough to finish. 🙁

  • Been working non-stop for almost 2 weeks. Finally a weekend where I can sleep-in, relax and game.

    El Shaddai arrived yesterday. The animation is just WOW!!! 😀

  • Ok, big list this weekend….., GTA 3 on Mac (bought it just now), On PS3, Portal 2, The Saboteur, GTA IV, Mass Effect 2, Ratchet and Clank: Crack in Time, Metal Gear Solid 4, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, StarCraft 2, Killzone 2 and 3, Burnout Paradise, Duke Nukem Forever, Assassin’s Creed, NBA 2K11 (Jordan challenge is addictive) Red Dead Redemption, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune, Gran Turismo 5, and I think that’s about it!
