What Are You Playing This Weekend?

Sad news: I think I'm gonna lay off The Witcher 3 for a while. Batman: Arkham Knight is out, and Splatoon is slowly starting to take over my life. What are you playing this weekend?

Batman: Arkham Knight — I'm really looking forward to getting started with that one. I've loved previous games in the series, and I love how rewarding it is to just make Batman move around. When you have that core concept nailed everything else is just gravy.

Splatoon. Goddamn, I'm just so into that game. I can't even explain it. It's just so easy, so cool. It's a weird word to describe a video game, but it's fashionable. I love it.

What are you playing this weekend?


    Continuing Mother 3, may even return to Cities: Skylines.

    I'm also really tempted to play The Witcher 2 now that I've finished with 3.

    Going on a road trip to my parents' house this weekend. After 9 hours' driving each way I'll probably just continue with Persona Q and maybe some Project Diva F 2nd.

      Got to the second world in Persona Q, I love P4G & P3P but the spin offs just don't seem to do it for me.

        Yeah, I played P4G and P3P. I'm also in the second world in Persona Q. I'm finding it OK so far, but kind of hard even though I'm only playing on normal difficulty. I find that I run out of SP fairly quickly and have to go back to base to heal. Maybe it's designed that way. I'm really hanging out for P4D but no idea if/when it will be released in EU.

          Yeah, I knocked it down to easy because the repetition of getting so far in, finding a shortcut, heading back to base, rinse repeat, was getting to me.
          Seems I'm not a big fan of that style .

          P4D isn't my thing, love the music & music in general, but have no rhythm & get no joy from those types of games.
          I'm also really freaked out by the soulless faces stuck on the motion capture bodies.

          Just picked up Devil Survivor Overclocked again last night & managed to beat the fight I was stuck on months ago. Hopefully that means I'll be finished before Record Breaker comes out in October.

    Yoshi's Woolly World arrived at my house yesterday. Tonight I'll be putting a good few hours into finishing my week off with some cuteness. :)

      Me too, I've got a mate coming over and we're going to play the co-op. Lots of trolling will be had. It is possibly the cutest thing I've ever played: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CIV_FxIVEAAlCas.jpg:large

      hell's yeah... woolly balls of Yoshi poop... win!

    Dark Souls 2
    Devil Survivor Overclocked
    maybe some Bloodborne
    maybe some Devil Summoner Soul Hackers

    Got the shits with Freedom Wars, thinking of getting rid of it.

      What is the world like in 2016?

        The hoverboards are pretty good but I'm sick of being forced to put pictures of my genitals online.

        Amazing. Abbott was kicked out and replaced by someone competent who got everybody in Australia Google Fibre within 3 months..

    I'll be dividing my time between FF14 Heavensward and Yoshi's Woolly World, which is just adorable!

    Given the state of Batmangs on the PC, I'll probably spend most of the weekend in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

    Got that MMO itch again and with an awesome looking expansion around the corner, I am keen.

    Ark: Survival Evolved. Been a loooong time since I've been sucked into a game like I have with this one.

      I've been looking at that. How does it compare to DayZ or is it more like Rust?

        More like Rust but (in my opinion) more content. It's still very much Alpha - the optimization isn't great so be prepared to play at 30FPS and have the odd bug/glitch but the developers are very active and there are patches basically every day.
        And you can eat your own poo.

    Will be playing Yoshi's Woolly World, Batman: Arkham Asylum (that's right, I said Asylum) and Lego Jurassic World. Also, the usual AdVenture Capitalist and Clicker Heroes.

    Probably more Splatoon.

    Though might get the 64 out for some Lylat Wars action. Also suppose I should crack out Yoshi, although I still have Kirby sitting there waiting to be looked at.

      Splatoon. Even after I hit level 20 I've been stuck in a cycle of buying clothes to see which perks they have.

      It... It's not stopping!

        That is exactly why I fire it up on or around midnight every day, then play a few rounds of Ranked.

        Though for the last week or so, all I've been getting is a single low-level shirt. No shoes, no hats. Just a shirt.

        The other night it changed things up by giving me a mid-level shirt AND a pair of shoes!

    Batman! I even skipped GYM yesterday to play BATMAN!

    If I finish that I'll get back into FF14 that I just bought. Maybe even finish Stanley Parable or give another run to FTL.

    Going to visit my parents tomorrow. Need my dad to finally look at why my car lights keep going out.

    Also have D&D on Sunday, maybe now I'll talk about the problems I'm having with the campaign.

    I might also try applying to Kotaku. Most likely have little chance, but can still do it for fun.

      One does not simply finish The Stanley Parable.

    Probably will end up finishing Witcher 3. I'm well into the final 3rd act now and doing well in terms of equipment and skill layout, so it is definitely a possibility. However, I do want to try to get superior griffin armor set completed.. so there's that.. in any case, I'll be playing Witcher 3 again

    Fuck Batman, I'm gonna play this cool little game called Bloodborne. Up to the second nightmare, all optional areas done, LET'S DO THIS!!!

    Also "String Yoshi".

    I actually finished Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure last weekend, much to my surprise.

    I'm going to try and start up Persona 3 Portable again...

    ... or, I'll just watch Natsume's Book of Friends.

    Her Story is out! Really looking forward to this.

    World of Warships - Just going Open beta if anyone wants to join! If not this weekend then definitely within the next few weeks.
    And Batman Arkham Knight!

      World of Warships is a cool guy. Everybody should go get involved.
      Totally a paid endorsement.
      Still true though.


    Planetside 2 and Driveclub ps+ edition on ps4. What a time we live in.

    I grabbed fallout 3 goty edition during the week. Got the itch to play it again after seeing fallout 4. Maybe some farming simulator 2015.

    Hoping to pick up a copy of Yoshi's Woolly World today too.

    I'm bouncing between World of Warcraft (Patch 6.2 dropped the other day, need to get to work so I can raid with my guild), Batman: Arkham Knight, LEGO Jurassic world & J-Stars Victory VS+

    Witcher 3, been playing it slow, only just hit Novagrad, about 40 hrs in.
    Also got first LAN gaming session in our new office tomorrow night, way better layout now.

    I'm about to start a months nursing placement in rural South Australia.

    I'm bringing my xbox with Witcher, Halo MCC, Batman, Mass Effect & Super Meat Boy (BC).
    I'm bringing Deadwood, and a few other TV series.

    If the place I'm staying doesn't have internet, or the TV isn't HDMI I'm completely boned.

      Handhelds are a schmodsend in these situations

    My wife is revisiting Fallout 3 which will probably tie up my steam library (thanks to family sharing) so I'm going to try and knock some games off my 360/One pile of shame since I'm taking a possibly very extended break from Destiny. Been telling myself I'll play Watch_Dogs at some point, let's see how we go.

      Having been hooked on Destiny for the past several weeks, I can sympathise: finished the story, levelled up from 20 to 30, gained rank in the FWC, gotten legendary weapons in every slot, buying a completely useless engram from Xur, hitting more public events than I care to count and spending every other night in the crucible I've decided to kick the habit the long way I know how - by selling the damn game!

      This weekend I'll be playing Sunset Overdrive which I bought the other week and still haven't played!
