What are you playing this weekend?

I'm supposed to be playing Company of Heroes for my pile commitment... but instead I'm playing Evoland, because it's fricking brilliant.

Still trying to finish up Far Cry 3 inbetween matches of DOTA 2. I need to finish up the story so I can move onto Bioshock... and Tomb Raider... and the rest of the pile.

Space Station 13.

I still suck at it, but the depth and *gasp, I'm really going to use this word* emergent game play is astounding. It would be interesting to have a goodjer server/game night for this. The stories that each match creates are interesting. I spent my last game toiling in the cargo bay, delivering crates and keeping supplies moving to different departments. I watched as those around me slowly became insane, and witnessed the station janitor beat himself to death by bashing his broomstick into his head. Myself and 2 coworkers managed to make it to the escape shuttle, only to find it covered in blood, guts, and infested with killer clowns who then proceeded to murder everyone.

I picked up this on Saturday and it's consumed my weekend in between Spring cleaning, laundry, groceries, and other assorted adult things:

It's a completely delightful way to train on my new fightstick. A strong shot of nostalgia that makes me feel old because 1) I'm old and 2) I suck at Street Fighter 2

More LEGO: City Undercover because ITNEVERENDSOHGODTHERESSOMUCHLEGO!

Ahem...

I also started a fresh play through of Vampire: Bloodlines and probably more mod-infused Torchlight2

Additionally, that recent trailer for DS2 is making me want to see if I can slip back into my long dormant Dark Souls play-through without having to restart the thing from scratch.

Pinball & Arcade games! Board Games, Starcraft II campaign, Binding of Issac, spring cleaning

Gravity Rush, most likely. About 2/3 of the way through. May or may not finish it this weekend.

Might fit in some Dragonborn as well. Totally enthralled with being in the land of the Dunmer again.

Infamous and Morrowind and maybe some Ctulhu Saves...

You missed a rune AND the Sokolov painting in that mission!?

Forget that tax nonsense - you've got a mission to replay!

I totally did forget that tax nonsense! Well, not "forget", more "decide to do later in the week". I also didn't play Dishonored, and just played GRID all weekend. But I did do some Gristol ghosting during the week too.

So even though posting what games I will play typically means I won't actually play them, this weekend's plan is more:

But I guess that means it'll actually be a lot of:

Pinball, board games, Sonic Generations

Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward and Paper Mario. Another good contrast.

I just gave up on Sonic Generations the other night. Maybe I'm getting old, but it just wasn't any fun. The levels were placing enemies/traps intentionally to break my flow through the level, and that's no good when what I enjoy about Sonic games is getting up to speed and just zipping through.

I like it (I was almost all the way through when I put it down last) but then I like this sort of thing. Sonic Colors was better though.

Magic Online, Magic in person, and possibly some Bioshock Infinite but the $@"'jing checkpoint save system means I'm afraid to play unless I have two solid hours. Unbelievably poor design decision.

Date night, which will consist of cooking and, hopefully, teaching her how to play either Miskatonic School for Girls or the Resident Evil Deck Building Game.

Which for other girls might be considered a horrible time, but I think she'll dig it.

Other than that, who knows.

I think we all know. Oh yes, we all know.

Finally joining the ranks of those who are playing Bioshock Infinite.

Getting my Bioshock Infinite groove on, and getting some board gaming in with the boys. They're relatively new to board games, so I'm thinking a lineup of Munchkin, Risk: Legacy, Talisman (or Relic, if I decide to be weak and pick it up), and maybe Thunderstone: Advance (if they're feeling adventurous).

In the home stretch of Bioshock Infinite.

Also, more Borderlands 2, Spec Ops: The Line, and may finally dive into XCOM.

I'll hopefully be able to finish off the final few missions of Sleeping Dogs today.

Tomorrow I'll be boardgaming Space Cadets with some friends.

I'm a few hours into the game, and I can already tell that it will likely be my personal "2013 GOTY that didn't release in 2013". Loving it so far!

I will mostly be playing do stuff for my mother-in-law, but when I can sneak away, I'll be running with the newly released OOTP 14.

Dark Souls. Getting killed by some asshole invader & losing all progress. Then...MORE Dark Souls.

Pip pip, my good man! Best of luck with your weekend endeavors!

Pinball, Pathfinder, and whatever indie games will run decently with integrated graphics on my i7 while I try to suss out if my PC problem is related to my graphics card.

I jumped back into Strange Journey and finally got past the part that had stumped me.

More Persona, PSP style, when I'm exercising. Gotta get a couple of levels up to use my new Personas. I'll probably enjoy some odds and ends too. Nuns with Guns and maybe some Mortal Kombat on the Vita.

Fire Emblem: Awakening. It's strange how this streamlined strategy series can turn into such a sprawling, open-ended mess -- and be improved by the transformation.

The older Fire Emblem games had a press-your-luck quality, with character permadeath set against the need to use your weakest units in combat in order to train them up.

This entry feels toothless so far -- not because it isn't challenging, but because there's lots of optional stuff to do that allows you to choose how difficult you want your experience to be. That said, all of that new/extra stuff is pretty entertaining.

I grabbed this on a lark and was stunned at how fun it was. I'm genuinely considering buying it.
