Ah, Friday. The start of a weekend full of opportunities, such as: napping. Drinking. Oh, and video games.
We didn't get around to this last night, but it's still the weekend, and it's still a good time to gab about how we're going to spend time in the great indoors now that summer has finally arrived. Or for our friends in the Southern Hemisphere, what they're playing as they keep warm.
Rather burnt to a crisp here, coming out of Los Angeles, and not sure I'll be playing much of anything this weekend as I recover my mental faculties from E3. There's still a lot left to say from what we saw down there, and it's hard to break out of mental note-taking, since you can't write and play at the same time.
So I complained about moving cords through the back of my entertainment center in this post. Then I talked about playing a terrible seven-year-old game on the Xbox in this post. Now tying all of that together is this post, where we all turn out our pockets and tell everyone what we're playing this weekend.
As I mentioned in my review this week, I came to the Prototype continuity late. Now that I'm not hustled for time to pump out a review of a game the day after it releases, I feel like revisiting New York and finishing out the original Prototype, especially as I'll get to stomp around a larger-scale Manhattan before…
As Kotaku's weekend editor, my problem is the fact Friday is my hump day. Now, I know it's a lot of other folks' hump day too, but for different purposes. But when I talk about what I'll be playing this weekend, bear in mind this is like what you would be playing on your Thursday and Friday.
Fleeing from the NeverDead tyranny, the last Battlestar, Goodlactica, leads a rag-tag fugitive fleet on a lonely quest to a shining planet known as UFC Undisputed 3.
I got sucked back into Skyrim this week. My first playthrough didn't get very far; I was tromping around as a Nord warrior, and it didn't really connect me to my choices, and my choices to the story, as much as I would have preferred.
Last week when I was on vacation I picked up an original Xbox from a friend (some of you may have seen me Tweeting about that.) Considering the new-release doldrums we're in, this has been as good a time as any to reacquaint myself with some games I loved on that console but haven't seen since I got rid of mine back…
I have always said you don't need family for the holidays, you need family for after the holidays. This weekend kicks off the long slog to March, or April if you're really in a bad climate. For those who aren't hanging around their family, it's a good time to sink into a game and punch away at the dreariness of leaden…
This is the weekend I finally get around to playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Funny thing about picking it up today.
Is anyone reading this still on campus? This was my favorite time of the year when I was an undergraduate student. I stayed at school until they threw us all out, usually going four days to a week after my last exam. There's no better lifestyle than a college town at the end of the semester.
This week I rediscovered my love for DC Universe Online thanks to its "Lightning Strikes" DLC, to the point I was up at 1 am last night and swearing at the television when I couldn't connect to the server.
December is a fantastic month for video gaming. First, you get about four hours of daylight, so who the hell can blame you for staying inside all day. Second, all of the major releases have hit shelves, so unless you're waiting on something for Christmas, chances are anything you want to play is already in your drive…
Tuesday I fly home for Thanksgiving, so I have about 72 hours to get all the pre-holiday console gaming done that I want before those things go dark for a week.
Look at you people, all happy and smiling with your "Skyrim" and your "Modern Warfare." I'm winding up my time with Super Mario 3D Land, which hits shelves on Sunday. That's right, fuck off Bowser. I'm coming to kick your ass and there's nothing you can do about it because I'm dressed like a sparkly raccoon.
I don't know about you, but I feel like playing some MLB 2K11 after seeing that. Who knows what I'll feel like saying, doing or playing after the conclusion of Game Seven of the World Series tonight. Last night's epic was one of the greatest things I've ever seen on live television.
Payday was last week. Payday is this week. And PayDay is a candy bar. One out of three in my household ain't bad for this weekend. I'm looking to log some time with Overkill Software's crime caper Payday: The Heist (PS3, PC). You?
Another weekend, another couple days to spend on my Dark Souls obsession. As I grind my way through new game+, I find myself marveling at just how long this game is (again).
