We never stop playing video games. That’s a fact. Even after we call it quits for the week we still look forward to getting home and continuing our digital conquests. It’s our life blood. So we thought it would be fun to share with everyone what our gaming intentions are for the weekend so you guys can get a sense of what we're playing and enjoying on a weekly, non-formal basis. Yes, this concept isn't new to the internet. But hey, we kind of want to join in on the fun. Can you blame us for that? So without further ado, here’s what we’re playing this weekend that will forfeit any semblance of rest…
Also, since we've caught up with the rest of the internet and now feature a comment section, sound off below to let us know what your gaming plans are this weekend.
Joey Davidson: This weekend, I'll be in Japan with Erik. Yeah, crazy stuff. That means the two of us will be fighting for our lives as we head to local arcades, find some Japanese nerds and throw down the gauntlet of challenge next to some Gundam games. We suck at them, sure, but we must show them the American way!!!
I'm still slogging through Plants vs. Zombies on XBLA. There's so much replay value that I might still be playing it a year from now. I haven't even cracked through the co-op or vs. modes.
Finally, things have quieted down on my new game front and I might dive into Mass Effect 2 or Borderlands. Both games have been dormant for months now and I desperately want to return. I guess we'll see. Have fun, Joey & Erik!
As an added note, you know things are bad when I freely choose to go look at books in a bookstore rather than play my PSPgo (I’m one of those types that can’t read “grown-up books,” it’s comics or bust).
So now that my handheld plans are dashed for my time spent in Japan, I guess the only real gaming option left is to play Portal 2 with the buddy I’m out visiting. Being the good friends we are, Joey and I picked up a copy of Portal 2 for the fine gentleman who’s letting us stay at his place free of charge. When we’re taking a break from all the eatin’, boozin’ and Japanese baseball gamin’ (?), we’ll probably huddle around a TV to either run through co-op, or just watch our friend experience Portal 2’s fantastic single player mode for the first time. Yup, Portal 2 is one of those types of games, one you can just sit and watch and enjoy it without ever touching the controller.
