What Are You Playing This Weekend?

It’s funny, but E3 has gotten me all excited for the games I’m going to be playing in 2015, but a little less enthusiastic about the games currently sitting on my shelf. What am I going to play this weekend? Hell if I know…

I have a couple of ideas. One is to continue playing Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Mario Kart 8. Both great games that I am enjoying thoroughly.

Another idea is to finally start with Watch Dogs, which I only recently got a copy of.

My third idea is to get stuck into the Battlefield Hardline beta thing.

I also want to play InFamous: Second Son, which I badly need to catch up on.

Actually, now that I think about it. That’s a pretty awesome list of games to choose from.

What are you playing this weekend?


  • Watch Dogs. Might rebuy Red Dead Redemption again too. Getting a hankering to play through it again.

    • Hey, are you guys getting any graphics glitches with Watchdogs?

      I’m just seeing a lot of walls and stuff appearing on roads.

      I’m on pc with a 2gb Nvidia Gigabyte 750ti. Just wondering whether it’s just my card or if any patches are out?

  • Just got the Alpha code for Destiny so I’ll crank that on the PS4. That and I’m still playing Titanfall (PC). Maybe some Mario Kart 8. What’s more likely is I’ll have so many weekend chores I won’t get a chance to play anything. Getting old and responsible sucks.

    • Damnit! I still haven’t gotten my code. Are they only choosing some people for the Alpha????

    • Got mine as well!
      My brother got one but not my younger brother I think they only came out to PS+ Members by the looks of it ?

  • Will look to give the Destiny Alpha a run, basically this will determine if I want Destiny or not… at the moment I’m in the not really caring about phase.

    Trying to clean up some backlog also, so God Of War II on the PS3 is looking to be finished, as well as MotoGP 13 on the Vita.

  • BF4 on the 360. Sadly enough I gave it until now before I purchased it hoping that 99% of the bugs/crashes I heard about on the internet were patched.


    I’ll try and give it another shot after last nights dismal 4 / 6 games freezing on me. 🙁

  • Destiny Alpha.

    And outside of that, I finally got around to starting Nier so more of that.

  • There will definitely be bouts of Mario Kart with my 3yo son. He’s able to finish all 3 laps of the tracks now, so hopefully I can get him to improve to the point where’s actual competition…right.

    But otherwise too many games. I’m currently simultaneously playing and trying to finish Rage, The Wolf Amongst Us, Phoenix Wright 3DS, Spelunky (via hell), Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze.

    Meanwhile, I’m dating a virgin, I’m in this contest – something’s gotta give!

  • I think I’m gonna be taking my Xbone in to EB Games to ship off for repairment/replacement. Busy weekend any way, so not too much gaming other than some FIFA tonight.

    Console is doing a weird thing where when powering on, it powers on for half a second and dies. Once it’s on though, it stays on. It’s just it can take up to half an hour to get it turn on sometimes. Grrr

    • Hmm mines start squeaking from time to time, was thinking of shipping it away, maybe will wait until Dry July.

  • Wildstar, level 15 last weekend, jumping in this weekend to see what else the game has to offer.

    So far I haven’t fallen asleep so that’s a good sign. I play a lot of different games and most hit a snooze button for me.

    Otherwise I may pick up the forest or something on steam since every ones playing that and I’ve been too busy to join in the hype last week or so, but better late than never.

  • Finishing off my 360 back catalogue… Just 100%ed Darksiders 2, gone back to finish Darksiders 1 and remembering why I put it down…

    • Really? I 100%ed Darksiders 1 a couple of years ago, enjoyed that, then recently forced myself to finish Darksiders 2. I couldn’t stand it. Too derivative of God of War, not derivative enough of Zelda for my tastes.

      • For me it’s all the portals that’s killing it for me. Too frustrating/outright infuriating when required in combat. That and the health system. Just finished the Black Tower last night and the portal based fight felt far too luck based and I think I’ve picked up and put down the game about 3 times during that tower along. I just liked how Darksiders 2 felt more customizable (gear + skill point builds). They also stepped out the new gadgets and things and the portals were scaled back in a good way.It makes me really optimistic for the Nordic Games DS3!

        • Yeah, I’m really curious about what Darksiders 3 is gonna be like under new developers. With any luck we’ll get to see it in a year or two.

  • Mark, if you enjoyed inFamous and inFamous 2, you’ll find Second Son very familiar… I did enjoy it. Not revolutionary, but a fun diversion. I need to complete my evil playthrough, might do some of that this weekend when I’m not watching fitba.

    That or more Child of Light.

  • My weekend will be like this….
    Wildstar…Study….Wildstar….Melb TAY meetup…study….Wildstar….sleep

    • I’ve been hammering the Spies vs Mercs lately – I will be back on tonight

  • Wildstar! Really enjoying it so far, hope it lasts unlike the last 4 MMO’s I tried to replace WoW with 😮

  • Friend just went through a break up so my gf told her to come over on the weekend to play MK8 as it is guaranteed to make her feel better! I support this notion.

    I also picked up Dragons Dogma and looking for a chance to play it.

      • About 120 hours into Dogma. Just starting my third playthrough to get the Hero trophy and platinum. Love the game, especially the character customisation. My PC is so hot 🙂

        • I gave up fighting the Ur Dragon on my second playthrough, awesome game would have loved it if a mate could bring join game as their pawn. I still remember going out at night for the first time.

  • I intend to continue ignoring all my new games in favour of replaying oldies for some reason!

    Will probably finish replaying Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty this weekend. That is if I don’t get too distracted by Wind Waker HD.

  • Too much choice this weekend, Mario Kart 8, Finish off Pikmin 3, Watch Dogs, try BF: Hardline, and gonna have to give the Destiny alpha a try, I will also be watching the World Cup.

  • Watchdogs although my most desired feature was not included…SO wished they let you hack friends games!!!

    Also Trials of course. I’ve decided to complete the Top Roach Challenge this weekend. No idea if I’ll do it but will be fun trying.

    • I’m digging the Hacking/ Invading stuff, but it would have been nice to be able to specifically pick friends instead of randoms.

  • I’ll give the Destiny alpha a crack, but if I lose interest in that, it’ll be Watch Dogs.

  • I’ll be playing Final Fantasy X HD mostly. Aside from that, there will be a smattering of Demon Gaze, Etrian Odyssey Untold and Magical Drop V.

  • Mario Kart 8 and Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze for sure.
    watch_dogs on pc if the patch is released (*pisses self laughing) .

  • I’m playing the See-How-Long-You-Can-Stay-Up-And-Watch-Le-Mans-And-The-World-Cup-For Game.
    It’s going to suck.

  • Loving playing the PS2 PC emulator at the moment, especially my old PS2 RPG’s, of which to my mind there was a SIGNIFICIANT lack of during the PS3 cycle. Don’t like action RPG’s, much much prefer turn based, so PS2 is where it’s at for that.

    Finishing Suikoden III, then deciding whether to follow with Suikoden IV (though as I recall it’s pretty average), or take a break from Suiky and play Shadow Hearts 1/2

    I also have some Tales Of ps2 games (Abyss and Legendia primarly) to re-catch up on as well…

    oh and there’s all that World Cup action… busy weekend, so to speak.
    Thankfully I get another day off on Monday, yah for long weekends.

    • Suikoden IV was painfully slow. Start was great and then I spent half an hour to get halfway to the next destination by boat. Slow boat, too many encounters. Play Shadow Hearts instead, so awesome and strange.

  • Destiny alpha. Maybe some Anno 2070… I finished Watch_Dogs last weekend, and don’t really feel like going back to do side quests. Minecraft has sorta hit a standstill, as I don’t want to go mining for hours, but I need resources to progress.
    I’ve kinda come to the realisation that every time I get the urge to go play a huge, immersive RPG, I tend to gloss over The Witcher 2, which I’ve been stalled at the start of Chapter 3 (? I think?), so I might make an effort to get back into that… although after a 10 month hiatus, I’ll probably just end up restarting… There aren’t any big releases for the next month or so, are there? Oh, Divinity: Original Sin is in two weeks? Crap. I’ll leave TW2 until August, then.

    Destiny and Anno it is, then.

  • Waaaaaaaatch Doooooooogiiieeeees!

    Also some BF4, SWTOR and WoW. Can’t wait – can I go home now?

  • Going to continue with Saints Row IV since haven’t had a chance to play any since Monday. Might squeeze in snippets of Dark Souls here and there if I get sick of Saint’s Row IV being so awesome. If I wind up gaming through my wife’s naps I mgiht try and get further into Watch Dogs. I let myself get distracted with side missions instead of actually getting on with the story so I don’t have the strongest impression of it yet. At least when I did that with SRIV it still counted towards my progress/completion for quests my homies gave me.

  • I’m going to try and get all the way through Hanging Out With My Dad While He’s In Town. I should be able to knock it over in a couple of days. The level design is a bit dull and has more busy work than any exciting set pieces. The good thing it that it has some old sloppy code, so it starts to slow down after a couple of hours and gives me an excuse to put it to bed and find something else to do.

    • With the microtransactions they added in a recent patch you can buy a resource called “beer” that the FAQ says makes things more fun but apparently it has an odd progressive bug that makes the controls a bit wonky the more of it you buy

  • I always love this section. It lets me validate the fact that i somehow managed to get addicted to World Of Warcraft… again.

    I also have an itching to replay some PS1 Classics so let’s see how that goes.

  • Working through the back list myself. Shadowrun: Dragonfall, Typing of the dead overkill, HoN and hearthstone probably.

  • Apart from Blacklist, last night I came within a sliver of a health bar of defeating Chaos Witch Queelaag so the rematch is tonight (I worked out the stone armour has mucho fire resistance and if I tack on Havel’s ring I can jump around with gay abandon!)

    This time I’m bringing humanity, Mildred and some more patience!

  • Watching the World Cup. Hopefully I get a chance to play some Watch Dogs and Mario Kart 8 at some stage too

  • If i get a chance Watchdogs although could be Lego movie or Lego Marvel…… If i can stand looking at basketball i may do a 7 game series of this years finals.

  • Skyrim. I havent played a game since Dragon Age two came out. I just got a new apartment, a new couch and a huge TV. I am going to buy an xbox after work an play catch up. I have missed so many great games.

  • PS4 – Assassin’s Creed Black Flag. About 80% and pretty much finished the collectathon. Still loving it though, but not enough to do the MP trophies.

    PS3 – Dragon’s Dogma Dark Arisen. 120 hours and two playthroughs under my belt, one of which was a 7h speed run (stupid Madeleine going to Gran Soren by herself and denying me the quest line I needed for the Hero trophy!) Playthrough 3 commenced…

    Vita – Grinding Heaven for P4G persona fusions. Megidolaon is basically a win button against 95% of the shadows, and both MC and Naoto have it 🙂

  • Well the lack of email implies I didn’t get into the destiny alpha so presumably I’ll be playing the “editing the last of my videos so I can finally clear some HDD space” game. If I manage to finish that, I’ll probably play Murdered: Soul Suspect since it’s been sitting there for a week waiting as my reward for finishing editing

  • Probably Infamous again (on Good + Harder difficulty) Possibly Wolfenstein if I can scrape some moneys together!
