What Are You Playing This Weekend?

Well, I finally managed to unpack my consoles. Everything's connected up to my TV and all is right with the world. I turned on my PS4 for the first time in a while and — of course — was confronted by all sorts of updates.

But yeah, that's alright I guess. It's the nature of the beast nowadays.

The game I'm most keen on playing? I think it's Velocity 2X, which is free for PlayStation+ subscribers this month. I've heard some amazing things about it and, from what I can tell, it's a game that does some interesting things with interaction and sound. This is one of my favourite things in video games, and the reason why I love games like Child of Eden and Everyday Shooter. Really looking forward to playing it.

I also got Sportsfriends on PlayStation+, which is a stark reminder that I need to get some more DualShock 4s. Goddammit. I don't have cash for this!

What are you guys and girls playing this weekend?


    Lego Marvel with the missus tonight.
    D3 and possibly some Dead Rising 3 the rest, with some Baldur's Gate on my phone.

    Diablo III....and Destiny......in my dreams.

    Only purchased a PS3 earlier this year, so most likely Shadow of the Colossus HD as I've never played the original.

      You're in for a treat.

      (treat = emotional scars)

    Might check out Velocity 2X, given that it's free and all, but I honest-to-goodness am going to start bloody Deus Ex: HR on Wii U this weekend. Been planning to for weeks, just hasn't happened.

    Oh, unless I start playing 2+ player Diablo III on PS4. Crap.

    Probably going to the Moscow Circus. Also wondering what to do about Fathers Day.

    Fiinshed a Link Between Worlds, maybe move on to another 2DS game.

    Maybe go through my backlog or start recording some Halo 2 footage.

      ...wait, are you in or around Ballarat? (If the Moscow Circus is still there, I mean. Otherwise this question makes no sense.)

        In, the Moscow Circus is in Ballarat for two more days. Why?

          Oh no, I was just curious - I grew up in the vicinity of Ballarat and was up there last weekend to visit the parents and I saw the circus was in town :) I sometimes forget how small the world is!

    Because I recently picked up a PS4 I'll be continuing with Infamous: Second Son, probably some Diablo 3, and maybe a bit of The Last Of Us: Remastered. Also want to try out Velocity 2X, Don't Starve, Transistor, The Last Tinker and try and at least make a start on Oddworld: New 'N' Tasty.

    And of course on Sunday (Father's Day) I'll have to play some Octodad: Dadliest Catch.

      Almost finished my Good Karma playthrough, will finish again on hard evil karma for the platinum, I bought TLoU:R but haven't started yet. I got the free ps+ games haven't tried Velocity but the Sports friends one was minimum 2 players (only have one controller) and I think it requires a Move?

        I've got a Move, but haven't used it yet, been thinking about getting a few more coz the Target near me has them on clearance for 15 bucks each.

        There are some Sportsfriends games that allow two players to use a single controller

    I'm in the middle of a Saint's Row marathon so I'll be playing SR The Third mostly. There'll probably also be some Atelier Rorona Plus (Vita) and Etrian Odyssey Untold in there too.

      SR series seems like a really odd choice considering your penchant for technical JRPG and strategy games... Never seen you mention anything else.

      ...That's right, I'm a Kotaku comments voyeur and have developed perceptions of each regular commentor's gaming behaviour...

    Super Puzzle Platformer Deluxe, bought it in the Humble Bundle the other day.

    On call this weekend, so assuming I don't get interrupted incessantly - Disgaea 4, Danganronpa 2 (still haven't played the first, so that's a free pass for now), Velocity 2X and Don't Starve GE came out on Vita this week alone. Then there's continued D3 on PS4.

    I'll be finishing Wolfenstein: The New Order (wish someone would mail that guy some cough drops), Rocksmith 2014 (learning some Cake songs) and probably Gran Turismo 6, again.

    I'll be finishing off Risen 3, and then maybe try some of the new Tomb Raider. maybe. who knows what I'll feel like when I finish off Risen. Perhaps I'll play it again as a bad guy! Maybe not right away though. That'd be a pretty mammoth effort.

    Volgarr the Viking!

    Diablo 3.

    Haven't even finished the first act yet, I'm just playing it in short bursts.

    Battlefield 4, yeah, I'm the one guy still playing that.

    I am going to finally get my first ever platinum tonight with Infamous Second Son. Beyond that I really want to check out Walking Dead Season 1 but I can't figure out whether my save on PS3 will carry over to PS4 when I play season 2...???


    Mostly playing Tales of Xillia 2, but switching over to Orcs Must Die: Unchained for a few matches here and there.

    Arkanoid, Time Pilot & 1943. Have to replace a button on my machine first, my nephew is BRUTAL at smashing the buttons.

    My wife finished Black Flag last night while I played Minecraft and drowned out any possible spoilers by listening to old podcasts, so my weekend will predominantly be trying to finish Black Flag before Destiny arrives next week. I still want to enjoy the side content but I will probably wind up doing a marathon push through the story late Sunday.

      Black Flag is amazing. i am surprised anyone has left it this long to play.

        I took a long break from Assassin's Creed and didint finish Brotherhood until Revelations came out, then took a long break from Revelations because I wasn't enjoying it. Still picked up ACIII (in a sale, despite hearing it wasn't very good) and got Black Flag for $50 about 6 weeks ago.

        My plan was to finish Revelations, see what ACIII was like (expecting to hate it), and move onto Black Flag.
        What actually happened was I still really disliked Revelations, sank about 35 hours into ACIII because I really enjoyed it, and I think I have about 20 hours in Black Flag and I don't think I'm even halfway.

          I could never get into the AC Franchise at all. i never really enjoyed the first game and then just avoided the rest. Picked up Black Flag on a whim and it is definitely my fav game from last console generation lol :) sunk well over 200+ hours into it including some multiplayer too.

    Mostly work of warcraft (sic). with probably a splash of Starcraft 2 or Diablo 3 thrown in.

    DC Universe Online, and I might try to finish off Assassin's Creed 3.
