What Are You Playing This Weekend?

Super Metroid. This weekend I am going to be playing Super Metroid. Why? Because why the hell not. Also because I expect my house to be completely swamped with friends and family this weekend and in the chaos I will most likely have to surrender my television.

So for the first time since I bought it, I think I will be using my Wii U in one of the ways it was intended to be used: everyone else will be watching TV and I'll be huddled in the corner, all anti-social, mad at the world and playing Super Metroid on the Wii U controller.

In a way I'm quite excited. These days I've found myself playing a lot of games I haven't enjoyed — BioShock Infinite, Tomb Raider. Well Tomb Raider was alright in parts, but I really didn't enjoy BioShock Infinite. After really loving Luigi's Mansion 2 I'm keen to stay on a roll and play games that actually remind me of the reasons why I actually love games. Super Metroid falls into this category.

What are you all planning to play this weekend?


    Maybe Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers.

    Same as last weekend - Assassin's Creed III and Luigi's Mansion 2. Amazingly, I have actually made progress in both over the course of the week! Still not loving ACIII, though, which I seem to recall was a fairly common complaint back when it released...

    I haven's played Super Metroid in ages.

    Thanks Serrels, now I have something to do :D

      Hey, be aware... there's apparently a bug that prevents crouching.

      see if you can't find a patched version first.

        Thanks man! I'm pretty sure it's solid, I'm playing it through the original Wii and haven't come across anything yet, so I should be sweet!

    I just got a new videocard so I'll be playing PC games with the graphics set to Ultra

    Bioshock Infinite looks so shiny and pretty

      Cool, what card did you get?!?! I love getting new video cards! Can't really justify one at present though. I did however, install a new 2TB hdd last night...wooo excitement plus!

      On topic, I just took the plunge and installed Arma2/DayZ last night. I'll be looking to figure out how to play that this weekend. I too will be playing some Super Metroid. Was up the other night to all hours playing in bed on the Wii U gamepad. After all these years it's still such a great game!

    Killzone 3. If I finish it, maybe start Infamous 2.

    Might try out some more Hawken. Though I should probably attempt to clean up my room and/or start reading up on the Oculus dev kit documentation.



      I was hoping the last spoiler was another +. But you're only on lame-o NG+? I am disappoint

    It's on like Donkey Kong.

    Yeah I'll be getting DKR3D tomorrow.

    But, Super Metroid is too hard! There's no tutorial telling you how to make Metroid crawl!

    I just finished up Sleeping Dogs and the first DLC. Not sure if I'll bother with the second DLC.
    I'm gonna be spending most of my time painting and playing Warmachine as the League is almost over.

    Not sure what game I'm going to go into next. Maybe get into Dark Souls as I got that for Christmas, 2011s Christmas, and I only have about 10 hours of gametime in that.

    Don't Starve. Every playthrough, I manage to survive just that one day more. The game is unforgiviing and addictive, it's like playing stuff back in the 90s

    Forget Pile of Shame month, I'm well into my Pile of Shame year! Really want to finish of Aquaria.

    Then it's a toss up between Crysis or Alan Wake (thanks Humble Bundle!)

    PS @markserrels - don't you dare put up a screenshot saying you're stuck and asking for help!

    BL2 with friends, Krieging it up and setting things on fire then making them explode. Outside of that will be Persona 4 Arena, Fire Emblem: Awakening, and maybe some Ragnarok Odyssey.

    Persona 4 Golden. Finally the Vita is getting some use. It is awesome!

    Birthday today - so i'm thinking Bee may have picked up my hints for Farcry Blood Dragon and/or Mortal Kombat Komplete.

      I hope you enjoy your socks, jocks and movie

        Movie? Pffft. If only i was so lucky.
        Navel lint, more like it...

          Wouldn't expect so, Bee is a classy lady (It is really hard to use the phrases seriously these days)
          I expect a movie or similar, something nice that you can enjoy together. Like The Piano

            If it's a movie picked by bee you can bett it probably has Jenifer Lopez in it.
            God bless her cotton socks.

    BF3 double XP weekend, so I'll put some hours in there with a couple of friends and crunch some levels, hopefully. Otherwise, it'll be P4G on Vita, or trying to get back into FFXI on PC if I can.

    New feature patch for Firefall today so that a lot.

    Bikini Samus with 75%+ item find rate Mark, or we shall be very disappointed.

    I have no idea what to play this weekend. I think i'll wing it.

    Hoping for some Portal 2 Co-op with the missus. I'll have to give her a go of single player first and see how she goes.

    'Last week to get this post grad unit done'

    Hoping to finish it off by Sunday 11 pm so I can move onto... you know... actual video games again.

    Original C&C, almost finished the GDI campaign.

    Tekkit, lot's and lot's of Tekkit.... Oh and some Fire Emblem on the 3DS most likely too!

    Up to chapter 11 on Fire Emblem, enjoying it enormously!

    Neverwinter Nights..

    .. not the Neverwinter MMO, the original 2002 Neverwinter nights. Not finishing the main campaign is the biggest beast in my pile of shame. It must be slain! [current save-game I'm playing was started in 2005 :p ]

    Age of Mythology, taking a leaf out of the 'only game for enjoyment' book
