What are you playing this weekend?

Ticket to Ride - Pass and Play on iPad with my wife. Just picked up the Europe map and we're really enjoying it.

X3TC X-Tended. Damn grubber

I agree completely. I'm replaying it right now (about halfway through Life of the Party) and everything about it (barring the graphics and some of the voice acting) is just great. Definitely not a case of rosy glasses at all.

I'd *like* to be playing something new and hot, but I'll probably just play something old and comfortable while drinking multiple Manhattans, then later I'll be praying the children don't wake up again in the middle of my wife and I having sex.

Don't be jealous, young Turks!

SUCH SLANDER WILL NOT BE TOLERATED WHILE WE'RE ON WATCH!

How many games have anything like that now, or even NOLF's sociology. I'm struggling to think of much in the last five years.

Myself - Lots of things, mostly The Witcher 2 and TF2

@ PlainGrey. Yup, on 360.

Cool, let me know if your up for some co-op. I've a temple guardian at lv 50 gold and probably a few other silver characters knocking about

I have a bronze character who's like level 3 (I just dl'ed it the other night). I'll let you know in several dozen hours!

Bioshock, Peggle with the wife, and Bastion if I'm feeling inspired to give it another chance.

I'm currently powering through a final Mass Effect campaign before retiring the game. This time as a male complete renegade humanity-first Vanguard dick.

Ha, well I've no problem starting over and I've a friend who'd probably be up for starting a new character too - here's the Sacred 2 character builds wiki:

Worth a glance even if you want to most learn as you go along

Going to concentrate on taking some kingdoms in Mount & Blade. I have a feeling I might have to remake my character.

I had planned on finishing Hydrophobia and Atom Zombie Smasher this weekend, but those plans were preempted by Bad Company 2, which has reminded me why I love the Battlefield series so much.

This weekend:

* More Spectromancer, League of Heroes mode. Have now clocked 30 hrs in the game, and am still hooked.

* Portal 2. Finally got into this one after letting it lie dormant since launch. It really takes off once you meet Glados.

* Singularity. It's OK. I'm mostly plugging away to remove it from the pile, and add it to my 2011 finished games list.

* Borderlands. Fun for a mindless more-levels-please shooter, in short doses.

* Vampire:TMB, with fan patch. Hopefully this will hook me.

and will dabble in Bejeweled 3, Hoard, Sims 3, and may finally try and get into Tropico 3.

Hopefully some Portal 2 with my wife.

Quoting myself because it's the exact same stuff as last weekend. Bastion hasn't held my interest that well, but I'd mainline Sacred 2 if I could.

I will be finishing Eufloria and attempting to control my DX:HR cravings with EYE.

My refurb Nook Color finally arrived today, so I expect that to take up most of my spare time this weekend. Hopefully some Android gaming (other than Angry Birds) will be had. As for core gaming, I might continue playing through Portal 2 (bought during the summer Steam sale).

Out for the weekend, only the laptop with me. Probably some Spiral Knights, since it will run. Maybe some Torchlight if I can shake off the rust.

Most likely some of the indie games I picked up in various Steam sales.

Probably some EU3. If Crusader Kings drops gets a daily deal at the gamersgate sale, I'll pick that up and play it.

Probably wrapping up my first re-play through of Mass Effect 1 with Lady Shepard and then a game called "catch up on work".

May consider starting a second play through of ME1 with Lady if I don't feel like playing the non-Mako ME2.

I was planning on playing Shogun 2 and watching MLG but if people keep posting bloody Deus Ex 1 Screens I may have to reconsider...

I'm still on Darksiders, Bastion and EDF:IA, like last week, buti started to play Pocket RPG on iPad (big pockets) this morning, and am hooked.

Same again, maybe some TF2 now that I have a new PC.

What are you playing this weekend? (Aug 19-21 edition)

Pour moi, c'est:

* Defense Grid - working on finally finishing up the last few missions after a long time lying dormant

* Dirt 3 - thanks, Luggage!

* Magicka - my new obsession. QRQRQRQRAm2 FTW!

* Singularity - It mostly bores me, but i'm 2/3 through it so I press on to get it off the pile.

I, uhhhhh, threw in Final Fantasy IX for nostialgia. I think I'll be rockin' that one pretty hard.

I like the image-based posts here. Much better than just some text.

I'm planning to finish: IMAGE(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/archive/d/d7/20100212023242!Alan-wake-0.jpg)
