What Are You Playing This Weekend?

God Hand was once described as being "like writing a friendly letter by hand while wearing brass knuckles". I am not entirely sure what that means, although I do know that I now have God Hand on my PS3 thanks to my brother's downloading skills, so I guess that is what I will be playing this weekend. How about you?

I'm coming into God Hand knowing very little about it, but when friends and colleagues have exploded with excitement all over Twitter about its PSN release and Tim has described it as "the friction of a cricket bat against an oncoming Harley Davidson", I can't help but think that God Hand might actually punch me in the brain and have me enjoy it.

So if I come back brain damaged next week, perhaps we'll be able to blame video games.

What are you playing this weekend?


    I'm halfway through my Splatterhouse replay, think I'll finish that... Probably some Gears 3 with any other spare time I have.


      The Witcher 2 (2.0)

      Dead Island

      maybe some Fable 3 PC too.

      Oh and some Gears of War 3 of course.

        Back to back long weekends! God must love gamers (pity he took Steve Jobs too soon though).

    Dark Souls! Plus I will finally be getting the last couple of achievements for Mass Effect, Finally!
    and some mp Gears and Space Marine.

      Mass Effect 1 or 2? If it was 1, how many playthroughs does it take to get them all?? Seems like it must be lots.

        Number 1, never had Tali enough to get her cheevo, plus I never used AI Hacking and last time I finished a was about 1000xp short of level 60. So I should be able to get the last of these pretty quickly, I have just been lazy is all.
        Should take a few playthroughs to get them all, mainly because of the character specific cheevos.
        Mass Effect 2 only took me 2 playthroughs to get all the achievements.

          The thing I found with 1 was that the companion ones were super picky. I definitely used Garrus and Liara for the "majority" of the game, but it apparently wasn't enough because I might have changed them out a couple of times.

          But agreed on 2. I've played it through once and have everything except the insanity difficulty one.

            Yeah, with my first playthrough I think I just got lucky getting one companion cheevo, after that I made sure to use the same people for all main missions and at least half of the secondary ones.
            Though, saying that, I do remeber getting a character cheevo mid-way through the virmire mission. Weird.

              Oh one thing with that is you won't get the chevo by just doing the main story - you need to pad it out with most or all of the side missions apparently.

    Gears 3 for me. Would like to finish the campaign in Hardcore.

    GOD HAND! Say whatever else you will about it: it's the most godhandly game out there!

      I know it was you that made Tracey play this game. I know it.

    Ooh, ooh, same thing I've said every thing for about 3 months - Dragon Age: Origins (now over half way explored apparently!) and Ocarina of Time. But now with added Space Channel 5: Part 2. Up, Down, Up, Down, Chu, Chu, Chu!

    More Disgaea 4 as the story mode is longer than first thought and Dark Souls if I can find a copy.

    I'll probably go retro, play all Alex the Kidd titles, for one more time.

    Hopefully finish my "Super Hard Makes you cry tears of manliness" difficulty play through of Mass Effect and then (even though I promised this last weekend) I WILL finish ICO, actually maybe not because I'm upgrading my computer this weekend for BF3 so I may be playing the beta.

      It IS really hard on the higher difficulties. And clunky, compared to the sequal. Soooo sick of my femshep collapsing on herself, and that "seath-syth-overture". Sigh...

    Going to give the very buggy BF3 beta another go. I hope it is not like this when it released.

    Also continue with my Deus Ex replay. So many things I missed, like the racist black hobo...

    Ico - just got the sword, sh*t's about to get real...

    NBA 2K12. Hugely out of form so far, so I've been getting smashed when playing "simulation" mode. Plus, having Garnett injured immediately doesn't help.

    Also Dead Space 2.

    LoL and Minecraft! After seeing examples of 'monster drops' I am going to create a 'player drop' using a really high railway! Then when they fall to their deaths I can harvest their goodies!

    Having just finished Resistance 3, might look at a Co-Op run on Superhuman inbetween both ICO/SOTC.

      did i miss something, ICO and SOTC are out????

        Indeed you missed something, they were out last week...

      Hey oggob, have you got the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta/Demo thing?

        Haven't received any emails with a code, though I know it's available under my PS+ sub, just need to download it.

          Yeah, I figured you'd have it under PS+. Send me a message if/whenever you want to play it, it's great fun!

    My lovely wife rocked up with a copy of Gears 3 the other day. So i'll be killing a few hours with that, and mixing it up with a little Space Marine MP.

      good choice :)

        Its actually getting really hard, I'm a COD addict, and I am not used to dividing my gaming time so much:P but I am loving gears 3 and space marine. Great games.

    RAGE RAGE RAGE... I must admit... the megatexture technology used in idtech 5 does wonders on performance... the engine is so well optimised, and thegame looks incredible...

    But has anyone actually gotten the level editor to work? In may Tim willits stated that it was as easy as bringing down the console and typing 'id studio'. Well that command is unrecognised, but ive been mucking around with it and found that the command 'idstudio' is recognised but doesnt do anything... perhaps you need to be in a dev mode?

    Just picked up Rage last night, and was up til 4am playing it. Had to get up for work at 7, and now sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting for the time to pass so I can go home and pick up where I left off. I think this will consume most of my weekend. Oh, and if I can find a shop that will break the street date for Forza 4, I will probably play that too.

    Bee an i are babysitting her little sister - so probably nothing that she can't play.. :(

    Luckily i got in a little bit of space marine last night...

    I don't know. I finished everything I had lined up at the moment.

    Well, there's Starcraft 2, because I need to continue learning to suck less at that. Then there's also Demons' Souls, which had been abandoned but might help tie me over while I wait for Zavvi to deliver Dark Souls.

    Oh, and Infamous 2 which I bought during Shameless Gaming Month, so only played the very start of before putting aside to focus on my older games.

    So there are options but which one I take will be a mystery.

    Probably just going to end up playing Gears 3 Horde mode over and over again.

      Sucking less at SC2 is a full time job, Trjn. That's why I gave up :(

    Just finished the awesome Gears 3 campaign, so want to get stuck into some multiplayer action.. though might be hard to squeeze in some gaming this weekend as I'm off to the hunter valley... grr not enuf time!

    Any Gears players, feel free to add me: gunni3

    Dark Souls and Deus Ex HR. Should hold me for the weekend. =)

    I downloaded Costume Quest on the PSN because it was free for plus users (having bought it on 360 and not gotten very far with it). Already ploughed through about half of it last night so I reckon I'll finish that and then maybe go back to the 360 version haha. I bought Dark Souls and it has already made me cower in the corner, so I'm not sure I can face it. And then there are Colossi to slay, though it breaks my heart to do it to most of them.

      I downloaded Costume Quest too - fired it up last night, and it's actually a lot of fun! I felt weird because I stopped playing Dark Souls for an hour or so to give it a go. Might have to try and finish it off this weekend - there's also a DLC for it, for about $5 - might have to check it out....

    Minecraft 1.9 pre-release 3 and maybe some co-op Dead Island.. and some BF3 lolbeta.

    Dark Souls, Driver: San Fran, Persona 3 Portable and... Err, maybe keep going on my second run of Persona 4, mainly because I want Izanagi No Okami or whatever.

    But mainly Dark Souls.
