The question that comes around every weekend: What are you playing? We at Press2Reset already know what we’ll be doing but how about you? Check out our staff’s picks for the weekend and let us know what you’ll be up to!
Graham McCann, @GrahamSMcCann - I’m playing Deponia to write up a review. I am also into Hitman: Sniper Challenge, which you can get for pre-ordering the game. Even though it is just one mission, and you are in one place with a sniper rifle, it is actually really fun. And of course, I will also be playing some Diablo III.
Marcus Mac Dhonnagáin, @M_M_DH - Well this week I’ll be donning my power armor, strapping on my jump pack, revving up my chainsword, loading my Bolter pistol and swearing my holy vows to the almighty Emperor. Yes, I will be playing Warhammer 40K: Space Marine! The campaign thus far has been very enjoyable. Hopefully Richard, our resident Warhammer 40K lover will be joining me for a round of co-op as well. Other than that I’ll also be delving into the Noir-laced action-adventure that is Max Payne 3.
Chris Root - This weekend I shall be housesitting for my parents, so I’ll be taking care of livestock (well, a dog anyway) and helping out with some planting… so I guess you could say I’ll be playing a real-life Harvest Moon. On the off chance I have any time to spare, I’ll probably try out the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier multiplayer, and I’ve had a hankering to go back and start a new playthrough of Fallout: New Vegas again.
Randy Lamberson, @RandyOnP2R - This weekend is going to be very exciting, mainly because I will be playing the game of don’t forget anything as I am packing up my stuff for E3. During the time when I am not thinking about all the new games I will be playing I will be visiting an old friend, Batman: Arkham City. Harley Quinn is out for revenge and it is up to me – I mean Robin! – to stop her. I also might do some co-op with Aaron on Portal 2 (I finally discovered how to access the Peer Review DLC that came out months ago!)
Michael Aber, @wtf_mike - I recently picked up all the Phoenix Wright games for the DS and am almost done with the first one. Currently I am playing Dr. Who and the Eternity Clock and when my roommate isn’t playing co-op with me I’m working on completing Bioshock 100%. Hopefully if time persists I can pick up Max Payne 3. I love third person shooters and need something new besides Uncharted.
James Gardiner, @keltar93 - Since I just finished Super Mario Bros. 3, I once again find myself in the awkward in-between games state, where my interest in starting anything is diminished by the impending wave of E3 news. Thus, I intend to fall back on a combination of my three mainstays: Team Fortress 2, Battlefield 3, and Left 4 Dead 2.
Aenne Schumann, @PeachyAenne - With my recent discovery of Desura, I have been playing visual novels and point-and-click adventures nonstop. I will be playing Flight of the Amazon Queen and whatever other point and click adventure games I can get my greedy paws on. I’m addicted and I cannot be stopped.
Sean Knight, @SeanDKnight - It’s been a busy week for me and the weekend isn’t looking any better. However my paranoia levels will be off the charts as I play DayZ. Now that there is no longer the bandit skin to identify player killers I’ll be avoiding everyone. But if I’m not being paranoid and scared I’ll be lounging about as I built up my city in Tropico 4.
Richard Hayden, @HaydenOnP2R - It happened again. I was innocently walking past the game store and before I knew it I had bought two old games that I don’t have any time to play because of all the new ones. And Minecraft. Anyway, since you asked, I picked up Bayonetta and Too Human (it was very cheap) and will try to squeeze them into my hectic schedule, which still includes Witcher 2, Max Payne 3 and Doctor Who and The Eternity Clock.
Anton Wegenast, @VirusSixZero - I am right about to finish Mass Effect 3. All I need to do is log some multiplayer time to get my Galactic Readiness rating higher. I also plan to push a bit farther in the Ghost Recon: Future Soldier campaign. I’m always up for co-op, and GR has been a long-standing favorite of mine. Depending on how quickly I can finish Mass Effect 3, I might jump back into The Witcher 2. I love the story and the world, I just need to finish ME3 before the new ending DLC drops on us.
Sam Neal, @SnealIV - I really want to explore gaming’s history, and play through more of the classic titles for SNES that I have gathered over the last year such as Secret of Mana and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. So then naturally…I will spend most of my weekend playing League of Legends. My friends and I all decided to start playing the game again a few days ago, and now I’m hooked. For better or worse.
Tyler Zehner, @TylerZehner - Listen! E3 is next week, so I will only have time to play Riiiiidge Raceeeeeer! However, I do feel my body is ready to battle at least one million troops and the not-so-big version of a Giant Enemy Crab – it all depends on how much Mr. Caffeine I’ve had that morning. If I manage to squeeze in any extra time, I will be continuing my playthrough of Dragon’s Dogma, so wish me a Good job, Jeremy!
Nate Hales, @nhales80 - I am going to take a break from games this weekend to catch up on some much needed exercise and rest….who am I kidding, there is no way I am going to do that. Nope, I will be balancing my time between Minecraft and Diablo 3 (mostly Minecraft), with the occasional bouts of ME3 when I feel like a break. Also, I will be making a return to The Last Story now that Sorcery (check out the review) is out of my system. So yeah, exercise and rest can GTFO – there be games to play!
Jonny Neeves, @Jonny_Neeves - Still thoroughly enjoying Max Payne 3, a game which continues to defy all my expectations. Having completed it on Hard, I am planning a run-through on the notorious Old-School difficulty level, hence I’m planning a meditation session beforehand to cope with all the stress of being killed repeatedly. Other than that, I’ve been playing Toy Story 2 on the PS1 for reasons unknown. It’s not a terrible game, just an extremely dated one, but there’s enough there to maintain interest for a while so I should hopefully finish it.
Melissa Kay, @THEquadskater - Gotta…catch…’em…all. Between Heart Gold and subbing in a few rounds of Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer, I might dig up something from Ye Old Backlog. I also have some Sailor Moon manga to consume.
Marc Lynch, @MarcOnP2R - Well I’ve decided to take a bit of time off from Diablo III to catch up on some building in Minecraft. Other than that, I recently picked up a copy of White Knight Chronicles for my PS3 and could also be getting into some previous gen gaming on my PS2. Deus Ex: Human Revolution is still staring at me from my backlog though. I didn’t ask for this!
