What Are You Playing This Weekend

It's the weekend already? Maybe it's a sign of age, but man, these weeks seem to be flying past. Terrifyingly fast. What are you folks playing this weekend?

I'm still plugging away at Dishonored. I tend to just play one mission at a time. The game is quite interestingly paced like that — one mission at a time is just perfect for me. I take my time, I explore the world, I slowly uncover the objective, take care of it, and I feel as though that's enough. I'm happy to just turn off the console and do something else for a while. Dishonored is a top game on many, many levels — and I feel as though it sort of suits my lifestyle in a strange way.

Anyways, I'm pretty close to the end, and will hopefully manage to wrap it up in time for the insane month of November.

What are you guys and girls playing this weekend?


    Darksiders. Started playing it for the first time this week. Took a while to get going and I wasn't too sure about it at the beginning, but really loving it now.

      Same thing happened to me, then I hit the 10 hour mark and lost interest.

    Finally started playing through the Witcher 2. Been years since I played the original.

    Starcraft 2.

    Got placed in Bronze league last weekend, won every game since then and have been fluctuating between being top of my division and somewhere in the top 8. That just won't do. My pride dictates that I get out of Bronze and into a more respectable league, like Masters.

    Surely that's not too dramatic of a jump for someone that barely plays the game and is rather kind of crappy.

    EDIT: Looks like the ladder's locked. No promotion for me. Will still play.

      Weekend of solid playing and you could get to Diamond or Platinum. Back before they nerfed protoss rush I figured out an awesome strategy of building my first pylon and gateways directly outside their base so I could pump out units quicker. Went from bronze to diamond in 3 days. A few good players could defeat the strategy and it was easy to spot later on once you know what to look for, but for those 3 days I dominated :p

        The old proxy 2gate. Still works. It's even been done in high level tournaments.

        Honestly, I don't want to cheese my way up the leagues. When I first played, I got placed in Platinum and then lost every game because I didn't know what the hell I was doing.

        I'll work my way up properly. I don't really mind which league I'm in, as long as I keep improving.

    Skyward Sword (got it off a friend recently) and Zero Escape - Virtue's Last Reward.

      Enjoy, skyward sword is an awesome game- hope you have fun.

    Just finished medal of honor: warfighter so wont be playing that so i guess Forza horizon

    Just finished my stealth/ghost play through of Dishonored and have start a more violent second run. But this weekend will probably go to Xcom as I just bought yesterday and found myself playing all night last night. Both awesome games :)

    Just got dishonored on pc from ozgameshop for 36.99 (with $10 discount voucher)!!! So I'll be giving it a crack alongside borderlands 2...

    Doom 3 BFG Edition (PS3). The old-school traditional style FPS returns! Way better than I thought it would be.

    NBA 2K13, DOA 5, & Super Mario Sunshine

    NBA 2K13, DOA 5, & Super Mario Sunshine

    Borderlands 2 DLC with friends. Dark Souls DLC (Well, once I get to the point I can access it) with no friends. HyperDimension Neptunia with a gecko that sometimes crawls on my roof.

    Guild Wars 2! They are in their first Halloween event and it's fascinating.

    Probably a bit of Captain Scarlett and her Pirate Booty DLC ... I made the mistake of going into it in True Vault Hunter Mode by default and didn't realise till I was at the leviathan because it just keeps murdering my level 41 Zer0. I'll beat it one of these days!!!

    More Borderlands 2, will finish off the slaughter arenas, do the Pirate DLC and then start True Vault Hunter Mode.

    Don't forget, Gearbox will be handing out 5 Golden Keys over the weekend starting on Saturday Morning, Sydney time.

    I wanted to be playing the digital copy of the Vita's Street Fighter X Tekken, but Sony forgot to put it up on Thursday... It's really weird, all the DLC is there, but I cannot locate the actual game on either the Vita or PS3 stores. So, Doom 3 BFG Edition it is!!

    Dark Souls DLC if I can get motivated to if not.. i'm not really sure maybe some random Xbox 360 game or I'll replay Uncharted 1 or 2 since I replayed Uncharted 3 last week.

    I'll be playing some Smash Bros Melee tomorrow morning with some mates, followed by Rock Band at a mate's Halloween party.


    Rocksmith, Uncharted 3 and Dishonored. Mostly Rocksmith though, I'm plugged into game even though I'm a real guitarist.

    If I get a chance to do any gaming I'll be continuing my XCom iron man play through. Just lost one of my max level heavies so I've got to start training up a fresh squaddie :(

    Halo 4
    Campaign is too Short though.
