What Are You Playing This Weekend?

What Are You Playing This Weekend?

I missed out on the opportunity to play Skyrim last weekend, but it is so happening this weekend. I have the house to myself, my wife is gone to Melbourne — this is my time to shine. I’m going to sit on my comfy couch, order a stupid amount of pizza, put on five kilograms of bacon and play Skyrim.

But that’s not to say I won’t have distractions. Major League Gaming has its national finals this weekend, so I’ll no doubt be tuned into that on breaks. I’m also pretty hyped for UFC 139, with Shogun vs Henderson. Man, this could end up being the best weekend ever.

Anyways, what are you guys up to? What games will you be playing? There has been a good number of games released this week, the big ones being Halo: CE Anniversary and Assassin’s Creed Revelations.

Let us know in the comments below!


  • I’m away from my consoles and TV again this weekend… sob

    So I’ll be making do with my 3DS (Zelda, some NES games) and Binding of Isaac on my laptop. And lots of driving and family stuff.

    Stoopid family.

  • Skyrim, for some reason I can’t get bored with it… damn it!

    Might go out and get Assassins Creed:Revelations, just because i’ve played all the others and I liked them. Besides, I might get bored with Skyrim.. uhm.. or not.

  • Finishing Grand Theft Auto 4 since my Skyrim still hasn’t arrived in the mail from Melbourne yet (4+ days to Sydney??)

  • Finishing Tales of Symphonia co op, and Super Smash Bros Melee, probably timeplitters 2 in there too. We love us some gamecube.

  • I’ll probably be playing Halo CE Anniversary… although after playing the first two chapters I must say I’m finding it really boring… I replayed Halo CE on PC after playing Reach last year and I had a blast, but there’s something off-putting about a 10 year old game with modern visuals, it just makes the game feel very underwhelming to play.

    I could play it in classic mode but the simple landscapes and textures by todays standards make the game very dull to look at… no doubt 10 years ago they were top notch, but I think it’s time the original Halo was retired.

  • Skyrim, if it arrives (Come on Oz Game Shop!)
    Otherwise, 100%ing Arkham City and MVC3 in preparation for UMVC3

  • Seriously why can’t they spread these games over the summer? NFS:TR, Saints Row, AC:R and apparently my copy of skyward sword shipped yesterday 😡

  • Also looking forward to Hendo V Shogun. Wandy V Le and Faber V Bowles are all good fights.

    Hopefully be playing Skyrim if it has arrived from Ozgameshop. Anyone got it yet from them? Just got an email confirming Zelda had been sent as well ^.^

      • My copy of Uncharted 3 shipped from OzGameshop on launch day and it arrived this week. That was a quick delivery in my experience. So don’t be jealous Mark, I give you a rolled gold guarantee* that you’ll be playing it before GentlemanJ

        *Not an actual guarantee

    • My Ozgameshop orders have all been pretty prompt except for the last one. I’m not holding my breath that it comes today ready for the weekend. 🙁

      • God help me if they both come at the same time, no more epic battle for my attention has ever been fought. I may have to come up with a system to play both at the same time.

  • Skyrim and BF3, just hit Colonel rank 1, 99 more to go!

    On a side note, I just burped so loud I think I created a new Thu’un. Gusting Belch, overwhelming and disgusting all who get in its path.

  • I’ll be pinballing between MW3, Skyrim, & Sonic Generations. Crazy, but awesome time to be a gamer!
    Still have Skyward Sword & Rayman Origins to pick up next week yet!

  • Xenoblade and Arkham City. Will be pretty busy on both Sat & Sun though so probably won’t get much playing time. Looking forward to watching Moneyball.

  • This weekend ill be playing some Dungeon Defenders and Battlefield 3.

    I’ve clocked approx 50 hrs in Dungeon Defenders so far, and it doesn’t look to be slowing down at all… Really enjoying it!

  • Golf on the range at a new course, after a 6 hour drive for a xmas party.

    Then a return 5 hour drive (I know a shortcut for the way back) so I can play more Dark Souls Sunday night!

  • Saturdau I will be playing the “work” game.

    Pretty crap game IMO

    Anytime not playing “Work”. I will be giving much needed love to


  • My other half wants us to go to her parents farm for the weekend (3hrs away!)… I would rather stay home and play Saints Row 3, Forza 4, and maybe some Lego Harry Potter. So I’ve been dropping hints the last couple of days that I don’t want to go, and she should just go on her own with our daughter.

  • Now that I’ve finally got a new video card and can play games without my pc crashing, I’ve got a lot to catch up on! Think I’ll start with Bulletstorm, then Alice, Then load up crysis 2 with the texture pack, then Heroes 6, then perhaps skyrim! Lord only knows what other games I have forgotten about 😉

  • So many games to choose from!

    I just finished the campaign in BF3 yesterday, and have only scratched the surface on multiplayer.

    Had a few quick games in MW3, which left me rather unimpressed. BF3 just feels so much more intense! I’m keen to finish of the campaign in this, but hadn’t started it due to being part way through BF3’s.

    Played just under 10 hours of Skyrim, having a blast but I know this one is something I’m going to be playing for a looooong time, so I’m not overly keen to smash through it.

    Uncharted 3 has been put back on the shelf until the aiming patch is released. I made it as far as the chateau before I decided it would be best to wait. From what I had played it wasn’t overly exciting, but I’ve read it doesn’t really pick up until around chapter 12.

    Finally got my voucher for the ‘PLAY’ promotion on the PSN, so I’m also keen to check out Payday: The Heist.

    So many games, so little time!

  • Bee is heading off to the states – so i’m diving deep into my pile of shame!!

    I realllly don’t know where to begin, though!

  • Saints row three. All day errry day. I’ve already put 10 hours in and have only just finished act 1. There’s just something calming about nut punching people. Who knows. Maybe it’s my inner child.

  • I got the play Revelations for about 10 mins before my brother decided he felt well enough to play it. So me maybe some Guild Wars and more Skyrim.

  • Skyrim. I’m already done with Saints Row 3, and found it to be lacking to the second one, actually. For all the crazy pedestrian smashing goodness, it just feels cut down from the second one in terms of content.

    Still, going to go through again co-op, so it’s all good.

    ANYWAY… Skyrim! Going to be playing as my Wood Elf assassin mage sellsword dragon hunting alchemist enchanter armorer who also dabbles in making a gigantic pile of useless junk in his house.

      • It’s a great sandbox, but that’s all it really has going for itself. The main storyline is a jumbled mess. (What? Funeral? When? Oh shi-, *bleep* actually died? Off Screen? The fuck? Why is the syndicate out of the picture permanently 8 missions in? Goddamnit!)

  • I’d like to say I’ll be playing through Brotherhood so I can start Revelations but I’ll probably be stuck watching my bf play Halo CE Anniversary. I’ll have the encyclopedia from my animus edition to get me through though.

  • An Uncharted marathon from 1 to 3. After finished Uncharted 3 & loving it, I decided to start from the beginning and play through the whole series again.
    I would consider it as a Platinum play through as well as getting all 3 Plats would be nice. xD

  • A Test match that Australia might win or Skyrim? That’s my weekend conundrum.

    That copy of AssRev I have next to the TV has been taunting me, too.

  • In Adelaide as a WAG for my gf at a conference. Wish I was in Skyrim. Also Skyrim has ensured I won’t be starting any other games this year. Poor SR3, Uncharted 3 and GoW3 which are all sitting on my desk unplayed. At least I got through Batman.

  • Can’t wait for the weekend. About 30% through Uncharted 3 and Batman AC but can’t put Halo CE Anniversary down. Also MW3 and Mortal Kombat finally arrived in the post today 😉

  • Polishing off Uncharted 3. Still umming and aahing over Skyrim, perhaps I’ll use it to fill the lull in January.

  • I am in the middle of both packing and working.

    My boyfriend and I have an agreement not to buy MW3/Skyrim/Ass:Rev/BF3 until we have moved (in about 10 days).

    So this weekend I’m going to play some older games I already have…like…LoL! And uh, Arkham Asylum (because damn you not being out on PC yet, Arkham City!)

  • I started both Assassin’s Creed: Revelations and Saints Row the Third this week. I will probably try to devote equal time to both, and also some MW3 multiplayer. I don’t want to get rusty because I’ve even gotten started!

  • Sadly my copy of Skyrim from OzGameshop still hasn’t arrived so I guess I will be bashing around in Dungeon Defenders a little.. maybe have a few fights in Mount & Blade.. or soemthing like that.. it’s all just filler until Skyrim arrives.

  • I will be drinking beer at a 40th b’day camping party…with some fishing thrown in for good measure. I am unsure as to how I will cope with the real world though because every time I blink I see SKYRIM!

    I think I can do 2 days of real life.

  • Finished off Uncharted 3 last night, so the path is clear(ish) to finally have a decent crack at Battlefield 3. I really hate starting these online shooters weeks after everybody else… I’m currently level 2 which means no guns, no gear and no knowledge of the maps. Everybody else seems to be running round in the 20s and 30s and fully kitted out and actually knowing where they’re going. Gonna be a long climb up from here…

  • Finished off Assassin’s Creed Revelations just now, might fiddle around with the multiplayer over the weekend, but I’m looking at getting Skyrim as well, because I’m hoping the amount of content in there will last me for a few weeks until I can get some of the other big titles at Christmas.

  • Uhhhh I suck so bad at Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. I traded in MvC3 a month ago and my skillz have rusted SEVERELY.

    This weekend, I MUST PRACTICE!

  • I’m buying a new laptop tonight… so I might ask them to throw in Skyrim too.
    I keep the copy on xbox as my ‘pure’ run through… and cheat like a bastard on the pc version.

  • Most probably Skyrim.

    Also want to play a bit of AC 2.75 (picked it up on tuesday and still havn’t even looked at it, damn skyrim) and mabey some HeroesVI

  • Me oh I’ll be going old school and playing Dragon Age Origins and slightly new with Forza 4 online with a mate!!!
    Yeah I don’t seem to be able to get games as new release little things called wife, child and mortgage but at least I get t o see what is wor getting when the prices comes down…
    Thanks for that guys!!!

  • AssRev & Saints Row 3 are likely to get most of my gaming time over the weekend…

    That being said, I’ve being dragged to the new Twilight movie on Sat, need to mow the lawns and likely to have a BBQ on Sunday. Sooooo, not much free time.

  • Arkham City, hopefully some Shadow of the Colossus, and definitely some ‘AssRev’, as oggob so eloquently put it 🙂

  • Skyrim, and maybe some Saints Row 3… Halo and ACR can wait until I have some real free time. Also, hoping to get some real work done this weekend, as opposed to the Skyrim marathon that was last weekend 🙁 Got a 150pg report to write by Tuesday, and I’m about a quarter of the way there, so no games before 9pm 😛

  • Sad as it is, I’ll probably be installing Starcraft II and playing that, since I got it on Monday for $30. Amazing bargain, imo.
    Else Dragon Age – I’m not a triple-A the latest title gamer.

  • So many awesome games – I think this weekend I will flip between BF3 multiplayer, Assassins Creed II and Arkham City

  • Skyrim. Whether it be on Ps3 or Laptop… it will be Skyrim.
    Though I will occasionally take a break to pop in MGS HD Collection and grab me some dogtags…

  • I’m helping my wife practice for an interview and going to see a Reggae, band called KATCHAFIRE (NZ). I hope to get a little Skyrim and Uncharted 3 gaming in there some where too!

  • Hopefully will get a chance to play some Assassin’s Creed. The faster I finish it the sooner I can start Skyrim

  • Me? Finishing MW3 single player (should only take an hour or so) then, just to buck the trend, Skyrim. Which I got through Green Man Gaming. Awesome

  • Been punching through some more bf3 multi today, and mixing it up with skyrim…. Might switch over to xbox later tonight, play some reach. Oh and play move stuff out of storage tomorrow. Blah.
