Weekend Spent: Oct 13 - 14 - Are you playing The Walking Dead?

Shares

Cooper: After hearing everyone freak out about how good the last two episodes of The Walking Dead have been I think I’m going to have to bite the bullet and dive back in. Sadly, this means potentially replaying the last two since I lost my save (the horror, the horror), but I figure it’s a small price to pay for being able to talk to everyone about how great Telltale’s game series has become.

Henry: Too many games, no time to play them. Both XCOM and Dishonored are tantalizing potential weekend wasters, but before I jump onto either of those I’ll finally start up The Walking Dead. I’m a huge fan of the comic, but I’d been saving the series till now in hopes of marathoning the episodic game. Though from what I’ve heard about the game’s intensity, I’m not sure my heart can take all four chapters in one day.

Sophia: The Walking Dead game is soo good, I think I will play it again this weekend. I wish Cooper and everyone else would just play it already so we can discuss. GET ON IT.

Sterling: Can we just go ahead and call it a Walking Dead weekend? Outside of something else I absolutely, positively can’t talk about that I’m reviewing, I’ve been thinking a lot about the events of Episode Three and just how jarring it was. Part of me can’t prepare for how much more sucker punched I can get, but we’re going to find out. I don’t think I’ve had one of those “Psst! Go outside and let’s talk about what choices you made” moments since Heavy Rain, and if Telltale keeps this intensity up, I imagine it will culminate in a Game of the Year contender for me.

Lucas: History has been made: I actually finished a game I set out to play during the previous Weekend Spent (Sanitarium, which I highly recommend to adventure game aficionados). I hope to keep the completion streak going by taking a stab at Far Cry 2, mixed with playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer and feeling bad about myself when I can’t win a single match.

Tom: People are telling me that Dishonored is awesome. Amazing. Totally radical to the power of bodacious. I’m being told these things, but basically all of these people? As of now, they’re liars. Or bad at their job. Or something, because I’m an hour in, and this game’s putting me to sleep. This weekend, I’ll be returning to Dishonored--not because I want to, but because right now, I’m increasingly convinced the world has gone mad.

Lorenzo: It looks like I may have another weekend full of undead monsters trying to bite my face off. I’m (slowly, but surely) chugging along with Resident Evil 6, but I’m thinking it’s about time I catch up with the last two episodes of Telltale’s The Walking Dead. Then there’s XCOM: Enemy Unknown and its enticing tactical awesomeness to consider too. I really don’t know what I’m going to do. There are so many games!

Brian: This weekend will be spent playing Dishonored and living vicariously through Corvo Attano. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be an assassin? Speaking of which, there are only three days left in our Dishonored Sweepstakes, which would make you one step closer to actually being an assassin. Sort of.

    I spent the weekend playing RE6 and RE4 with a little Outland and Scott Pilgrim thrown in for good measure.

    The new TV episode of Walking Dead premieres Sunday! Been playing Dishonored, going through stealthy but killing everyone. I beat the game yesterday, but I've barely scratched the surface of this game. Definitely warrants multiple playthroughs.

    Picked up Dishonored, and so far loving it. Hunting down every Rune and Bone Charm(among other collectibles) is too much fun, and when it comes to actual gameplay, it's even better. Might start getting into God of War Saga, haven't gotten into one of those games for a while, and I want to be prepared Ascension.

    I WAS gonna play some Minecraft, but then I fell into an inescapable pit of lava and lost everything. Now I'm going to finally play WoW and maybe hit 90, but odds are I'll just have to work and sleep.

    Halfway through my second season in my F1 2012 career and still really enjoying it! Also trying to hoard as much cash as possibly for the next month or so of big releases. Wish me luck!

    In between revising for my last exam I'll be playing dishonored and watching cowboy bebop. From my experience with dishonored so far I can safely say I am horrible at the game, I've just given up on trying to get the bone charm at the end of the pier in the second mission because I just alert all the guards in about two seconds and I'm trying to keep my killing down to a minimum. On top of that it takes a real pro-gamer to get killed by a fish, not a big fish, poisonous fish or even a gun wielding fish, just an ordinary fish.

    I actually have the "Walking Dead" game because it was free on PS+ but I never even started it - and I don't watch the TV series either. So I bought a game I don't really care because it was free. I just realized it was a non-logical thing to do... Anyway, this weekend I'll probably play Mass Effect 3 (around 7 hours in, REALLY enjoying it) and Borderlands 2 (probably over 25 hours in, and again REALLY enjoying it). I actually bought Dishonored today for 45 bucks but I don't plan on playing until I finish either ME3 or BL2. I might also play F1 2012, BF3 and Kirby's Return to Dream Land in spare times. In other words, I kinda have no f******g clue what I'll be playing.

    Probably going to be playing mass effect 2 this weekend or dishonored. That game looks amazingly fun!

    i will be turning 33 this weekend. i will be celebrating properly. by properly, i mean ordering a pizza whilst hanging out by myself, playing xcom, and catching up on the walking dead.

    Well, I'm still trying to split my time between: Dishonored Borderlands 2 Metro 2033 (just got on Sream for $5) Skyrim (love me some modding)

    Dishonored baby!
