What Are You Playing This Weekend

What am I playing this weekend? What am I not playing. Jesus. There's Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Super Mario 3D World, Assassin's Creed IV, Pikmin 3, Wind Waker HD, Resogun. I am overwhelmed. I don't know where to begin. Have mercy everyone.

It feels like everything just hit me at once again. It's intense, but at the same time I feel as though I am truly enjoying the games I'm playing. It's been a while since I've felt that way. The new console launches really have invigorated me. It's a good feeling to love video games again.

What are you guys and girls planning to play this weekend? Let me know in the comments below.


    I'm going to visit my Grandmother from Saturday morning till Monday. I *guess* I'll have to make do with portable games like Zelda, Phoenix Wright and Pokemon. Sigh.

    Probably keep playing the Warmachine league I'm in. Other than that, probably finally finish Dragon's Dogma.

    Since some people have moved on to the Xbone there's really nobody else to play games with.

      How many hours do you reckon Dragon's Dogma is? I got it free off PS+ a while back but haven't got around to downloading it. Is it worthwhile?

        It's the non-Dark Arisen version and I'm up to the second last main quest. Currently have 51 hours of playtime. But I'm also doing all side-quests and notice boards.

        If you include side quests, I'd say about 45 hours at the very least.

        And yes, it is very worthwhile. I loved every minute of it.

        I recommend playing as the archer.

          Even if every main mission started cancels/fails certain side quests, which I always hate.

            Yeah, the game certainly isn't perfect.

            But despite a number of flaws (i.e., no fast travel, poor narrative, bland art style), I loved their pawn system, gameplay, boss battles, level design and some really cool music too.

            Happy to give Dark Arisen a go once my backlog is all cleared up.

              I thought that the art style was pretty decent. Particularly when it comes to the equipment and weapons, a nice variety of design.

              Fast travel does exist, although limited. Need to use Ferrystones to travel to Gran Soren, and wherever you dropped your second Portcrystal (which can increase by 1 up to 10 for each playthrough).

              They fixed that in Dark Arisen, making Ferrystones cheaper, adding in more Portcrystals and placing a couple of permanent Portcrystals, including one in Cassadiris.

    With the Steam Sale on at the moment I will say that anything is possible
    Or, Ill just add to my Steam Library of Shame

    Ass Creed 4, Killzone! Hooray for PS4! Leaving work early to go pick it up.

    I finished Ryse during the week, and since I was unable to get a PS4, I'll be continuing with Dead Rising 3 and Forza 5. I'll also be buying Need For Speed: Rivals, Madden NFL 25, Lococycle, Powerstar Golf and maybe Zoo Tycoon as well, so I'll be trying to get in at least some time with all of those.

    Oh, almost forgot, I'll be picking up Splinter Cell: Blacklist 5th Freedom Edition, EB have got them fairly cheap - $47, and some of the Series 2 Disney Infinity figures, and wave 2 Skylanders: Swap Force figures (for when it launches on Xbone next week), but I don't think I'll have any spare time for any of those last three.

    It's the last board game day of the year tomorrow, so that's going to happen. Hoping to bust out K2 and see how many of us struggle up the mountain.

    I'm really looking forward to Mario. Definitely going to spend some time on that.

    XCOM: Enemy Within mostly, with some Guacamelee and Etrian Odyssey IV on the side. I'll probably slot in a few rounds of Droid Assault too here and there.

    Zelda Windwaker + A Link to both worlds + Reading my Zelda Treasure Chest i just received http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0804161380/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 from Amazon ; Yes i am a big Zelda Fan :D
    Cod Ghost;
    And probably Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix :D
    Oh and the game at Gym where I struggle to do my exercises

    Wind waker, link between worlds, mario 3d world, pikmin. Good times.

      I want to get Mario 3d world but got no time to spend on it + its stupidly expensive (local copy) for a 15 hour game

    I'm having a break* until Bravely Default.

    *...and by break, I just mean i'm not buying anything new until then.

    Mario 3d World and Zelda: A Link Between Worlds here.

    Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
    Madden 25

    WoW If I can get some of my friends to buy it. $15 for the entire collection.

    Mario! Picking up my copy from Big W soon as they open tomorrow morning

    Probably mostly Forza 5, maybe Dead Rising 3 if I can do it without spoilering my wife.

      Geez. If you and your wife want to spoiler, you don't need to tell half the interwebz.

        I'm getting old, I can't spoiler like I used to. Sometimes a guy just has to brag.

          Fair enough. Some days I just search the web for half an hour or so and do nothing but spoilers.

        As long as it's him doing the spoilering, and not someone else.

    I finished a LBTW (fantastic Zelda game, dungeons are a bit short and easy, I died once throughout the entire game), so now to finish Mario U, and play some more Pikmin 3.

    Also will play some BF4/Hearthstone.

    I'm tossing up between whether I next buy WW HD or Mario 3d World.

      Don't have my Wii U anymore, but I would totally buy SM3DW over WW HD.

    I don't know how you guys can play so many games at once. Only so many hours in the day.

    I'll be doing a little bit of Skyrim, and the odd game of street fighter 4. That's it.

    Magicka: Wizard Wars

    Great game already considering its only in alpha!
    Would recommend it to anyone who played Magicka or likes MOBA-ish style games!

    MARIO! Who needs a PS4 or XBox One? (me actually but I will CONSOLE myself (see what I did there?) with MARIO!!).

    Oh, and writing 120 end of year school reports, which is a fun game all of its own. :(

    Persona 3 Portable on my Vita: started dating Mitsuru and still only about 100 hours in...
    Saints Row 3 on PS3: starting to grow on me a bit. Might try to get the platinum if the challenges aren't too time-consuming.
    FIFA14/Resogun/Contrast on PS4: getting delivered today!

      Resogun is pretty ace.

    BF4 and Ghosts double XP weekend - will be BF4ing on PC, Ghosting on PS4. Any time I'm not doing either of those will likely be spent with WoW, or possibly sating my urge to get back on GW2 again.

    Super Paper Mario for me.

    Just beaten Merlee's Mansion.


    Knack and Killzone.

    I want Mario as well but might hold off on buying it for a little while so I can concentrate on PS4.

    I'm thinking about trading in my CoD:Ghosts (Xbone) copy towards something else...namely Forza/DR3/Ryse.
