What Are You Playing This Weekend

This weekend folks, this weekend. Finally I will break the seal on my copy of Batman: Arkham City and see what all the fuss is about. But what will you guys be playing this weekend?

I've had a copy of Batman lying about for a while now, but I've been busy trying to finish off Gears of War 3. I've started to get it into my head that I can only play one game at a time. I don't know how happened, but it's ruining me!

I'm literally close to tapping out. Next month's line-up is literally terrifying to me - Battlefield 3, Assassin's Creed Revelations, Zelda, Modern Warfare 3, Uncharted 3. I'm starting to resign myself to the fact that I simply won't be able to play all of them, so it's time to prioritise.

But, yeah, Batman is fairly high in that list of priorities. As is Zelda, Assassin's Creed Revelations and Uncharted 3. The rest are just going to have to hold off until the post Christmas lull.


    I might start on Monkey Island 2 SE on the iPad. It's probably been a good ten years since I played it last. It will take the pain off not having access to PC Batman yet.

      Side note: Is Alice Madness Returns worth playing? I like old school platformers, but was put off by the reviews.

        If you're a fan of art it's worth sitting through. The gameplay is a bit meh and repetitive. A bit like El Shaddai; it's all about that gorgeous art. (And I am a fan of many art forms, that is what got me through both of them.)

          Thanks, man. Certainly looks spiffy looking, that's for sure. I've been known to double the playing time of games compared to my sister 'cause I spend so much time taking in the little details. Might wait until it's a little cheaper, though. Thanks again.

    I know what you mean about playing one game at a time. Im the same.
    Ive even given up on attempting to platinum Deus Ex because Arkham City is out now and I cant do both lol.

    So Akham City this weekend and every weekend until Skyrim is out. Then bye bye life


    Dead Rising 2 : OTR and DXHR. Seriously addicted to the sandbox mode in DR2.

    I will be playing the most super fun game of doing Maths Questions for Revision for exam on Monday. But among that after a few months and a tonne of updates I have decided to give Minecraft a spin again and boy it has changed, when rain happened I was like "what the hell happened to the sound, did by speakers break" but other than that, building up a quite a big backlog to do when exams finish on next friday.

    Finally managed to get into the shops last night (thankyou late night shopping) to pick up my copy of Forza 4, so that will be the game I play for the next month.

    Forza games always captivate me for about 2 months then I stick them in the 'abandoned game' drawer where they sit until.....well I am not sure, nothing has ever come back out of there. THere could be a million dollars in the bottom of that drawer and I would never know.


    and should the planets align and my Dark Souls finally arrive in the mail, I will spend some time with that.

      This pretty much sums up my situation too.

      And Mark, if you get around to playing Batman, here's a pro tip: Ignore the side missions. Fly around a bit while playing through the main missions, sure, but there's just so much stuff to do. It's overwhelming and you'll be playing this game alone till 2013 if you try to do all the side missions!

    Rage. If I finish that before the weekend is done, more Dark Souls.

    Impatiently waiting for Batman: AC CE to arrive. Hurry up Royal Mail!

      What are you playing Rage on?

      I'm on xbox and the movement feels really 'floaty'.

        I'm in the 'box too and haven't noticed any floating. The sensitivity is higher than I'm used to so MBTV felt a little panicky and frantic but the movement has felt good to me.

          Ever ridden a quad bike that had that much grip?


    Will pick up my CE after work today, but thanks to WB being awesome, I've had my second free copy of the game since Monday and have been enjoying it immensely!

    All I want to do is play video games this weekend but I cannot. I must resist all urges and finish writing this gosh darn thesis.

    Why can't there be a thesis-writing video game where every sentence I write that is scientifically correct gives me ten points. I unlock achievements for finish 5 pages, 10 pages etc.
    I'd do it.
    Gamification baby.

      Same thing here mate. Wish I could level up in "writing thesis" and actually get better at that darn writing ^^

      Will try to get some time in though with SC2 and BFBC2. One needs a break every now and then ;)

    If my copy of Rage turns up today, I'll be playing that. If it doesn't (Which it's looking likely it wont :( ) then I'll either be playing Crysis Warhead, Batman Arkham Asylum (replay before AC), or Uncharted 1 and 2 if time permits (replay before U3)

      Me too, RAGE has taken forever to get here. This is the longest its taken form ozgameshop. Batman better not take this long!

        Rage quelled. My copy just turned up, now to go shoot me some mutants!

          Quite appropriately... FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

          My copy is still not here :(

    Metroid Prime Trilogy!

    After hearing good things about it on this website, I finally decided to buy it from Ozgameshop. To be honest I didn't really like it at first, but once I cleared the first level and learnt the controls it's much, much better.

    Enchanted Arms. It's 6 years old and the voice acting is horrible but man I'm a sucker for a good JRPG, especially when it has the cliche anime storyline

      I found the final boss fight surprisingly engaging.

    I shall finallt start on Assassins Creed Brotherhood, then be ready for Revelations.

    I have the weekend to myself mostly and I have nearly finished a whole pile of games lately (finished AC2 in about 2 sittings last weekend). Might have to purchase Dark Souls after reading the article Tracey and Mark did and all the positive things everyone else is saying.

    FYI ozgameshop finally have the Wii remote Zelda bundle up. Already preordered and started the waiting game.

    bought arkham city yesterday but probably wont have a chance to crack it open till sunday - mates bucks all day tomorrow - bring on indoor paintball pew pew!

    This is my last weekend before the Christmas pagaent season consumes all my free time.

    I'm still waiting on Forza and Batman from the UK...

    So, it'll be Rage, Deus Ex and Ass Bro.

    Batman, and assuming that the DLC code works, finally with Catwoman content unlocked. WB stuffed the launch for EU customers

    I'm currently waiting to board my 14 hour flight to return from my 4 week honeymoon. I will be purchasing Batman, Fifa and Rage as soon as I touch down. Can not wait!

    I'm finally going to get a decent chunk of time with Batman.

    Prepare to be fussed


    But I've also got Forza 4, Rage and Fifa 12 to get stuck into.
