What Are You Playing This Weekend

I am stressed. I have too many things to play. Xbox One, now the Kotaku PS4 unit has arrived. I have A Link Between Worlds, Tearaway. Argh! Too much choice!

This is not intended to be some sort of humble brag. I am genuinely stressed. This is one of those moments when I have to choose wisely when it comes to how much time I'll spend with each game/console. Most likely the PlayStation 4 will take priority in the lead up to our Australian hands on with the device early next week. Most likely I'll play the games I've been holding off on for next gen: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag for example, or FIFA 14. This is one of those moments when playing games for fun and playing games as a job gets all caught up in the cross stream. First world problems I guess, in the best possible sense.

Too much choice. And I'll have to hold off on games I've been super excited about, like A Link Between Worlds in particular. I'll probably have to stop playing the games I'm genuinely enjoying and want to continue with — Pikmin 3 and Wind Waker.

But still, it's one of those good problems! A PlayStation 4 and an Xbox One. In my house. A hunk of good games to play. This is what we've been waiting for. I'm genuinely excited!

What are you playing this weekend?


    Hopefully Link Between Worlds.

    I pre-ordered it from EB Games, but as it comes out on a weekend and Australia Post doesn't deliver on weekends it seems I'll get it on Tuesday.

    What a bummer.

    Otherwise, I'll just play some ACIV:Black Flag.

      I believe they're doing weekend deliveries in the leadup to Christmas, so keep an eye out for their courier.

      Also, completely unrelated, but I just read this which is awesome.

      My original comment has been awaiting moderation for half a day because it has links in it, but you should probably know so you don't miss it that Australia Post does deliver on weekends during the 48 day lead-up to Christmas. You can read about it on their website.
      Granted that still means EB have to put it in the mail on a weekend which they might not do.

      [Edit: Just read your comment later down the page...]

        Thanks for the heads up but it didn't end up coming :( EBGames website estimate is on tuesday, so I cbf waiting so I'll just go and buy it today and return the shipped copy.

        Bit of a bummer

    I'm gonna live in the past: Wind Waker (just saved at the final battle) and GTA V (it's soooo last gen). I'll probably head down to Big W to grab Zelda as well.

    Cod ghosts mp (yeah yeah, i know, i won a copy) and some far cry 3.

    Hoping to grab Zelda.

    Not sure I'll be able to play it yet though, unless the postal gods smile upon me and grant me my parcel.

      Cheat code. If it's on a courier service look at the tracking information, if it says it's arrived at the depot but doesn't say it's on board for delivery, ring up, get them to hold it at the depot and go pick it up. All you need is ID with your address on it. It's more hassle for everyone than it's worth most of the time, but if they don't do weekend deliveries it'll get you your package Friday rather than Monday.

        I don't think it is. Just a free shipping thing from Hong Kong. Always so slooooooooooooow.

          Owch. Regular mail is running on weekends in the lead-up to Christmas, hopefully that softens the blow a little.

            I hope mine arrives via Australia Post this weekend in that case

      Sign up for a free parcel locker from auspost. Choose a location near you. I use it for amazon and other international deliveries too. Only thing they dont accept is Toll, Fedex, etc...
      Ive been using it for a year now and love picking up my parcels after work or the weekend. (Accessible 24x7)

        i just get everything delivered to work. i can't stand the post office.

    I'm playing WWE 2K14 on Saturday so I can finish the 30 Year of Wrestlemania livestream I've been doing (via wildtalkradio.com) for the last few weeks. Other then that I'm going to take time off from gaming till I get my PS4 next Friday

    A Link Between Worlds of course. I just finished a 100% run of ALttP as a refresher, so I'm all prepped and ready. If some bright spark breaks street date today I will be sleeping very little this evening....

      That would be great

        Apparently Gametraders Mcarthur Store has broken street date. See their Facebook page.

        ...and now JB is apparently selling it. GAME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'll be too busy watching Day of the Doctor and the new MLP for much gaming ... might pop animal crossing back into the 3ds for a few minutes to see how everyone's doing now I've been gone for a few weeks.

    Planetside 2 - it is double exp man already until sunday!

    I ordered a Zelda 3DS XL but EB Games over-sold pre-orders and cancelled mine. So a sad weekend of hate towards EB Games awaits me. Also Wind Waker.

    I am genuinely stressed.

    Same. I don't have a PS4 yet but I held off on Pokemon Origins until the English dub so I'm waiting for the final episode of that and Doctor Who's 50th as well. I've got some stuff on tonight. I just made a ton of money at work which unfortunately means I have to actually do stuff.

    Today has that twilight zone feel like by the end of the day I'll be a broken man screaming regrets about getting everything I asked for.

      Oh yeah. I also discovered Wednesday that the Pokemon TCG has an official online client that can be played for free. Turns out I love that game.

      It doesn't help that I went to bed early last night, woke up two hours later fully refreshed and didn't get back to sleep until 6AM (where I woke up two more times in three hours and eventually decided to just stay up). I'm pretty scattered so I can't figure out what I've got and what I'm waiting for.

        Teehee. Playing Super Luigi Bros via the XBOX One to test out the HDMI input. Works pretty smoothly so far. Now I just need to test it with a PS4 and a hub. The XBOX One may actually make this the first generation where I've truly got all the bases covered.

        [Edit: Nooooo! There's a slight lag on the input that makes the game just that little bit less responsive. =(]

    I'm currently in a league for Warmachine/Hordes and will be playing/painting some stuff for that.

    Keep on playing Dragons Dogma, maybe some Halo: Reach or ODST.

    Arrrr, gonna be tryin to finish off Black Flag this wkend..

    Also got me that new iPad mini so will be checking out that new Deus Ex on it and Oceanhorn (Some calling it the iOS Zelda)

    XCOM - Enemy Within = So addictive.
    May start Black Flag.

    Tearaway. So far it's been an absolute blast. Loving every second of it.

    A Link Between Worlds on my Zelda 3DS XL. hopefully i get to pick it up at 9am tomorrow morning from EB games.
    But tonight I will be trying to finish A Link to the Past

      You can do eeeet!

        i just finished the first temple in the Dark World. Marathon gaming session ahead me thinks.

    Deadrising 3, maybe more of the single player for that new AOE 2 HD DLC a little annoyed they didn't voice over any of the stuff.

    In 10 years of PC gaming I've never dabbled with mods so I'm going to try my hand with Fallout 3 and Skyrim

      Hey Cufcfan616 I have been modding Skyrim for ages. Its amazing what you can do to vanilla Skyrim, it looks and playins so much better now with all the mods and I am having a blast. There are some amazing mods out there. If you want some structure to your modding search for STEP on the Skyrim nexus mod site, they have a great guide to what mods work well together. Have fun!

      Go for it man. No hesitation.
      I have friends that have become pc gamers just by them taking interest in my pc with Skyrim running mods.

    Same as every weekend for the past four years: Job.

    By far not the most enjoyable game. Rewards okay though.

      I don't like that game. It makes me sad =

    Rogue Legacy... just one more turn dammit!
    Then prob BF4 and HoN to break things up.

    Queenscliff Music Fest on Saturday, then Diablo 3 couch co-op with my lady all day sunday for recovery... oh yes.

    I have been downloading AC IV for two days on PC and I hope it is ready to play tonight. I am also finally playing Skyrim after many months of modding. I am enjoying my PC and feel no desire to get a new console.

    Forza 5, Assassins Creed 4, Battlefield 4, Killer Instinct and Fifa :D

      Xbone boo hisssss.
      J/jk. How is it. You spent a small fortune there.

        Awesome, exactly what I was hoping for out of an all in one entertainment and gaming system back when Sony announced the PlayTV. The new Kinect is actually useful, voice commands are pretty natural, and games run really well. Also dead silent unlike the previous gen of consoles.

    Zelda 3DS XL awwww yeah! !!!!
    Also finish Shadow Warrior.

      This guy speaks the language of my people.
