What Are You Playing This Weekend?

The weekend is almost here which means we all need to begin planning Gumby Fun Day! What will your day of fun involve? For me, I'm jumping back into Sword and Sworcery because I never finished it and I feel that I should. How about you? What are you playing this weekend?

Back in March I bought Sword and Sworcery on iPad. I never finished it because I got stuck and, to be honest, I didn't really know what I was doing. I think I was just expecting it to be super easy and transparent because it was on iPad. Well, I guess I was wrong! So that's what I'm playing this weekend. How about you?


    Mates birthday so it will most likely be, who can drink untill they pass out game.

      Dads 50th birthday tomorrow, wifes christmas-do tonight, no gaming at all unfortunately.

    Mario Kart 7. Whilst drunk. At the local.

    Also, Skyward Sword and Uncharted 3 if I can find the time.

    Collecting Riddler trophies and riddles in Arkham City, think I'm over halfway now. lmao @ the assholery of Batman when he's interrogating Riddler's men. Strangely enough I think I'm having more fun now than I was playing through the story. Also I try using the Batclaw to collect the trophies, even when I'm 2m away from it lol, it just looks cool. I'm also sleeping at around 2am and getting to work late...it ain't easy being Batman! Seriously though I need to sleep earlier :/

      I'm with you on the Riddler trophies. I always LOL at how polite Batman can be after interrogating.

      'How many bones do I need to break?'
      'Please don't hurt me! I'll tell you everything!'
      'Thank you.'

      Aww, such a gentleman. *THUMP*

      But yeah, the challenges are kind of more fun than actually running around following the story. Not that the story's bad, I've just had more fun roaming, spotting fights, trophies, riddles, etc.

      Trying to get more of those navigational/gadget challenges. Those are tough.

        I'm still waiting to hear ONE SINGLE THING from these interrogees, as soon as their ready to talk he smashes them into the pavement.

    Mario kart 7 as of tommorow.

    3d dot heroes, it is awesome! it crashed on the water temple boss and i only saved half way through...

    If I can find time between work and my sister's engagement party - SKYRIM!

    Arkham City, got to get through it this weekend!

    So I'm not committed enough to the idea of Skyrim to pick it up on xbox360 like I do all my normal games, so I'm going to wait until it's like $20 on steam and add it to my growing list of games I will play for about two hours then get bored - given this is how it went with Oblivion, I can't exactly expect Skyrim to be any different until proven otherwise.

    Thankfully, my old-ass PC will actually run Skyrim (according to the 'can you run it' webapp), hopefully it runs it better than it ran Alpha Protocol though.

    So with that said (as an explanation as to why I'll be one of the few people who doesn't answer 'SKYRIM' in this thread), I will probably play MW3 and if it's well behaved, I might try and knock out Assassin's Creed Revelations. At the moment it's in the naughty corner for constantly screwing me over by making Ezio glitch out and flail worthlessly in circles instead of throwing a knife at the cowardly templar den captain I need to kill.

      pessimism much?

    Skyrim, BF3 and PES 2012 hopefully...

    Don't worry Tracey, I don't think many people got past the point where you actually had to wait a month or something for the moon to rise to keep playing (without changing the clock). Given that youn have reminded me about, may have to revist it.

    Other than drinking, Skyward sword it is as it has won the battle between it and Skyrim for my attention.

    AC Revelations and Demon's Souls. I keep psyching myself out of Demon's Souls, but I'm going to give it another go, because I (think I) enjoyed what I've played so far!

      Quick anecdote: I bought Demon's Souls back when it came out. Played for 2 hours - got thrashed repeatedly... thought, "What the ...? This isn't a game!" Loaned it to a respected gamer friend, who promptly completed it, gave it back to me, and told me "that was awesome, thanks!". Decided to try it again on this advice, and the love affair began soon after. It almost didn't happen! Stay with it Shane, and the rewards will follow!


    AC Revelations and a bit of Batman. Skyrim is officially on the backburner until Christmas break. **Runs for cover**

    Making my way through Batman AA before AC and I'm loving every bit of it......so good!!

    But it's Stearosonic tomorrow so it depends on how big the hangover is on Sunday A's to how much gaming there will be :p

    Mario Kart 7 hopefully.

    Once more, 3DS Friend Code - 2492-4140-7879

    Battlefield 3 for me. I'm past level 10, so it's starting to get more fun (it was fun anyway, but *more* fun is better) and I want to get past level 20 as soon as I can because apparently that's when it really shines.

      Even at Colonel 4 ( Rank 49) it's still fun ^_^


    If ozgameshop deliver it to me today! :S
    *crosses fingers*

    I should try to get back into Skyrim before I lose the urge to play it. I went to play it last night, but after finishing Skyward Sword the night before, the swordplay in Skyrim just felt so clunky...

    I guess if there was any game that would make me crave motion controls in more games, it would be Zelda. :P

    Skyward Sword. Its consuming me! The only game ive played this year that im having trouble putting down. Its magical.
    Also some co-op Rayman Origins & Little Big Planet 2

    I am away mountain biking with my ladyfan this weekend. However, tonight we're having a night in and I am hopeful she will just want to sleep on the couch whilst I play Skyrim! She asked me this morning if it was a 2 player game - at least she's trying. Hehe.

      But it is two player. The second player gets experience points for fetching beers and after about 3 beers they unlock the "buy pizza" perk.

        I was thinking it might me more of a vin rouge evening, McGarnical. However, you're right, there's nothing more hearty and robust than swigging from a tankard of strong brew whilst traversing the rustic tundra of Skyrim's cold locations. And I don't think it will take too much grinding to attain that all-important pizza perk.

          The vino is a good point, but it's an alternative path on the skill tree. I think it leads to a cheese platter but I'm not sure because I've been putting all my points into the Healesville microbrew category (White Rabbit shout out!).

            Nice work on the White Rabbit. I love their dark ale! You may know this already, but they're owned by the Little Creatures guys. Anyway, I might sink a few points into both. Nothing like mixing it up and seeing what happens!

      I had something similar. I was playing skyrim and my wife asked me if I would be interested in playing a two player game but she disappeared into the bedroom as soon as she said it! It was very rude so I stayed up playing skyrim.

        Very strange. And what's with the lace underwear? Isn't she cold?

          I did have that thought. The best thing now is this morning she told me I can stay up playing single player games every night now. I love my wife.

            Thoughtful of her to put your quilt on the couch too.

              Yes, I think there is quit ea clear message here.
