Everyone at GI seems to have two games on their mind: Overwatch and Dishonored 2. So whether it’s toppling aristocrats or moving the payload, everyone is looking to have a quiet weekend inside. What are you playing to battle the winter blues? Let us know in the comments!
Jeff Cork (@gijeff) – I’ll be spending the
majority of my gaming weekend putting a little cursor over bad guys and
pressing buttons. I’m hoping to wrap up Titanfall 2’s campaign, and then I’m
rolling right over to the new Call of Duty and Dishonored 2. And, of course, I
can’t forget Overwatch. I have to enjoy the pre-Sombra world while we still
can; things aren’t going to be the same once she joins the roster.
Javy Gwaltney (@Hurdyiv) – I’m going to drown myself in Dishonored
2, Infinite Warfare, and Cowboy Bebop. Like an adult.
Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – This weekend I’m going to be playing Dishonored 2 and
hope to finish off Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Good times!
Suriel Vazquez (@SurielVazquez) – I just got a PlayStation 4 Pro (the first PS4 I fully own),
so I have a lot of catching up to do. Who knows what I’ll play – Titanfall 2?
Hitman, which I can finally return to after playing the first episode and
thinking it was okay? The Old Hunters DLC for Bloodborne? The silver lining of
Dishonored 2’s PC version being shaky is that I can put it off for a bit, but
that doesn’t mean I’m not disappointed by it.
Ian Boudreau (@ibourdreau) – I’m planning on a quiet weekend, and I think turn-based
games are the perfect pairing for a cup of tea and cooler weather. So the plan
is to start fresh campaigns in XCOM 2 and Total War: Warhammer, both of which
I’ve enjoyed tremendously but not played nearly enough. They’ve added Squigs to
Warhammer, and who doesn’t love Squigs?
Dan Tack (@dantack) – Kingdom Hearts. I am a huge Disney fanboy (Omg, I love Donald Duck he’s so funny) and I love it when they use their franchises in cool ways. I absolutely adore coming back to games like Kingdom Hearts because they are like peanut butter and chocolate together, Disney and Final Fantasy are two of my favorite things ever. And when you add stuff like Oogie Boogie and Lock, Shock, and Barrel (My favorite team of villains of all time) and Halloween town the recipe is basically unbeatable. So when you ask me, what am I playing, I’m going to don a Fantasia Mickey Hat, strap on my FASTPASS armband and pretend I’m in the Magic Kingdom all weekend long.
Jeff Marchiafava (@gijeffm) –This weekend I plan on
continuing to plug away on the new Call of Duty. I’ve been mighty impressed
with both Titanfall 2 and Battlefield
1 this year, which leaves COD as the last big shooter of 2016. I’ve only
played a few hours of the single-player campaign so far, and I like some of the
things it’s trying to do, but I need to finish it up and try the competitive
multiplayer and zombies mode before I make a final conclusion about it. I also
hope to get in some more Overwatch time, because that game refuses to get old.
Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – No big plans for this weekend,
other than working on some review games. I also want to play Dishonored 2. I
played through the first level, and am eager to get back to it. I might make
some dinner. It will probably feature some kind of meat and some kind of
vegetable. It’s all very mysterious. I might also bug my brother for some
babysitting so my wife and I can go see Arrival. I haven’t been paying
much attention to it, but I do love good sci-fi, and it is getting reviewed
Kim Wallace (@kstar1785) – This weekend I’ll be diving into
Dishonored 2. Going to play Emily’s path first! I’m still hopelessly addicted
to Overwatch, so it’s a given that will be a large of part of my weekend. Other
than that, I also really need to catch up on Westworld!
Kristin Williams (@kristincreate) – I’m just working through the original Mass Effect, hoping to get a
good run through all three in before Andromeda.
Margaret Andrews (@sopheava) – Dishonored 2, Skyrim, Overwatch, and Titanfall 2 but not in
that order or I won’t leave the house until next Spring. I might also take
myself to that new movie Arrival because it looks mind-explodingly
– I’m going to try to do whatever I can to take my mind off what happened
during this nightmarish week, which means a lot of Dishonored 2. So far, it’s a
smart, very fun video game and I need that right now.
Kevin Slackie (@KSlackie) – After watching Blizzcon this past week I’ve hopped on the Heroes of the Storm train, so I’ll play through that a bit. I might try to grab some of the Pro Day sales tomorrow and play whatever I manage to find from that. Sunday is mostly going to be Animal Crossing and 30 Rock.
