The weekend is for Luke Plunkett reminding you that you can finish the story in The Witcher 3 but still have more Witcher to play, so you should just do that already.
The weekend is for taking a long nap after E3. Also taking a break from hearing about video games to actually play some.
The weekend is for press conferences about video games. Also, maybe playing some video games, but probably just hearing about new ones.
The weekend is for eating those tasty yogurts you’ve been so excited to eat that you keep saving them, even though you could totally eat the ones you have and then buy more. Also, video games.
The weekend is for having a three day weekend, the perfect length of weekend for doing the requisite weekend tasks of social stuff, chores, and doing absolutely nothing. (All weekends should be three days weekends. Just saying.) Also, video games.
The weekend is for packing because you’re going on a solo vacation to Iceland next week, which is exciting and a little scary! But planning is stressful, so probably video games.
The weekend is for usually writing some funny thing here about your weekend and then also mentioning video games, but you’re playing Prey for review so that’s all you’ve got.
Weekends are for going to sing karaoke for your friend’s birthday but never knowing the available songs because all you know is 90s punk rock, musical theater, and obscure hymns from the 1800s. Also, video games.
Weekends are for going to see another play with a friend because you’re being very cultured lately. Good job, you. Also, video games.
The weekend is for having a friend stay with you and debating between actually cleaning the house/buying food or just kicking your dirty laundry under the bed/ordering pizza. Also, video games.
Weekends are for agreeing to go see A Doll’s House with your friend so spending tomorrow morning brushing up on your Ibsen because you don’t remember that play at all. Also, video games.
You did it. You finally got that sweet armor set you’ve been assembling for days. You look like a million bucks. Time to parade around town being shiny AF and... oh no. You found a new chest plate with slightly better stats. Have fun being a damn circus clown for the next 20 hours.
Weekends are for reminding yourself that even though the workout routine you just started isn’t super impressive, you gotta start somewhere, and getting some exercise will make you happier than lounging around. Also, video games.
Weekends are for your roommate being away so you have no shame about sitting on the couch and shouting at the TV while eating nothing but pizza for two days. Also, video games.
While all of us at Kotaku are big fans of typing, a handful of us have started taking our love of keyboards to the next level. There’s nothing like a good mechanical keyboard, especially when you take extra steps to make it your very own. I’ll show you what I’m typing on if you show me yours.
Weekends are for admitting that dish you made in your crockpot really didn’t come out well so you can give up on eating it and try something new. The crockpot is great because, while it does its thing, you can play video games!
Weekends are for returning those shoes you bought because you keep putting it off and if you end up running out of time on the return you’re gonna feel like an idiot. Also, video games.
I hope you’re all enjoying your Switches if you bought one/if it actually arrived/if you don’t own an aquarium. My parents wouldn’t let me have Nintendo stuff as a kid, so I kind of missed the boat. Luckily this month is packed with awesome games, so whatever your preferred platform, there’s plenty to play!
This isn’t a picture from The Witcher 3. It’s complicated, OK?
I’m in The Witcher 3 for the long haul, readers, and damned if I’m not taking you down with me.
