What are you playing this weekend?

I've fallen back into Endless Legend the past few weeks, so I'll be continuing with that on the PC. I think I'm close to finishing my current game playing as the Necrophage faction--I'm currently overrunning the AI Roving Clans player who is closest to winning, and at least going by game score I'm way ahead of the other players.

On the Switch, I expect it'll be more Wargroove and maybe some Darkest Dungeon. Clearly I'm in a strategic sort of mindset.

Hearing this thread talked up on the Call this week inspired be a better record keeper!

Spoiler:

I will be going all Corey Hart in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. First time, despite my love for the series.

I also expect to be murdered at Smash Bros. Ultimate at a gathering this weekend!

The Division 2 Beta, an hour and a half played maybe. Come March looks like this will be one of my ultra rare full price purchases for the year on release.

Weekend time. With Red Dead 2 finished, I want to dabble to find that next big game.

DRAGON QUEST® XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age™

Red Dead Redemption 1: Restarted it and makes me really want a remaster version. RDR2 makes the original feel like a mobile/handheld version of the game.

Trails in Cold Steel 2

Oh the dance card looks full this weekend...

Spoiler:

Apex Legends - with randos & GWJ
Starcraft 2 - co-op with coworker
Command and Conquer 3 - let's give this old game a fair shot already
Titanfall 2 - replaying campaign on Hard
Tooth and Tail - will I even have time for this?

More Rayman Legends, and still attempting to beat the last level in Alienation. I defeated the last boss, and died while waiting to be evacuated. So close!

Welp, a ton of stuff has some out lately, so for Space Game Junkie, I'm gonna try to cover all of these:

If I have any time left for myself at all, I want to try more of this to see if I like it:

Which will likely lead me to reinstalling this for another playthrough:

Hopefully more of this as well:

And I'm currently trying to learn this, which I think I'm enjoying:

Should be a very good, yet busy weekend overall.

A few things this weekend:

  • Finish setting up the computer that I hook up to my TV (I formatted last weekend for some dumb reason)
  • Maybe see if I can finish Super Metroid (SNES)
  • More Persona 5 (PS4)probably

Today I'm checking out Respawn's new shooter for the first time...

Looking to polish off a few things this weekend, viddygame-wise. I want to get the final trophy pending in Abzu, polish off Soma, finish my second playthrough of Timespinner along with the final handful of trophies from it, and continue with playthroughs of Dead Island and Persona 5.

Playing Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna expansion.
Still a lovely combat system.
My Switch is actually getting used for the first time in like a year :O

How difficult is Alienation in general? I started the campaign with a friend but I remember we didn't make it very far.

Well, I've been playing on easy, which has been challenging enough for me. I haven't had too much trouble (maybe died once or twice in every level) to get to the final mission, but that's the one that keeps kicking my butt over and over again because you have to defeat three different bosses, and there are no respawning beacons, so if you die you have to start from the beginning. I love the game, but I wish that last mission was different...

Finished The Division 2 Beta and feel the need for some ott shooty action. So rather than settle back into Trio of Towns or Rhythm Paradise have been downloading Just Cause 3 overnight. Hopefully get to dive in this evening

Oh and the boy and I have started playing Don't Starve Together couch coop world. He's really enjoying it.

A weekend at home sick has been a bummer, but it's also been a good time for gaming. Yesterday I finished the third palace in Persona 5 and got ever closer to the end of Act 2 in Dragon Quest XI. I'm not sure what I'll feel like today, though I'm a little burned out at the moment.

Welp, things took a different turn. Ended up uninstalling Apex Legends and reinstalling Titanfall 2. So wonderful on the new rig.

Also spent time installing the Battle for Middle Earth games so I can finally okay those campaigns. So fun.

Started with horro games. The Coma and The Evil Within 2

After finishing up Hellblade, I jumped back into Assassin's Creed Origins for some light relief. Maybe I'll stick with it this time, but I don't know. It works pretty well as a "background" game, anyway.

I had plans to study, maybe play Wargroove and definitely start Resident Evil 2.

But instead, I played over 10 hours of Apex Legends and have no regrets.

Got about 4 more gold medals to earn in Red Dead Redemption 2, and I'm done.

I passed you going in the other direction. Set Titanfall 2 aside for a moment to play a couple of drops of Apex Legends and see what all the fuss is about.

You dirty son of a bitch.

Finally started Worms W.M.D., and I'm having a great time. It's basically like my beloved Worms 2, but with nicer graphics, so how could they go wrong?

So many titles of interest. So little time.

Likely a mix of Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Final Fantasy XIV

I'll be having the TV to myself for 3 whole nights on the trot, so...

Destiny 2.
X-Com 2.
For Honor.
Rime.

Plus a board game get together on the side.

Basically this weekend is playtime.

I should probably finish Titanfall 2 before I think about an Origin Ya Basic subscription to check out Anthem.

But that's assuming I can tear myself away from Tetris 99, which is an... interesting assumption.

Between this and Wargroove I need to get myself a Switch and soon.

When not hacking every terminal in sight (more Deus Ex: Mankind Divided), I'll be doing my best to be a very good boy in Wargroove.
