Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue One

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

We could be heroes

Before E3 we posted a few features where members of our team listed their gaming plans for the weekend with some witty prose, and you did the same in the comments below. As we all like talking about games and weekends together, we're going to make this a regular feature every two weeks. Same time, same place.

We have plenty of weekend plans to share with you this week, so let's not waste any more time on the pre-amble.

Disclaimer: non-Nintendo games and products are mentioned. Read at your own risk!

James Newton

Heroes of Ruin — I've been looking forward to this ambitious 3DS title since I played an early version about a year ago. Hoping it lives up to my expectations! If anyone wants to play online, add my Friend Code: 4983-4959-3402.

Rayman Origins — Having played Rayman Legends on Wii U this week I'm really looking to getting to grips with the 3DS prequel. I've enjoyed what I've played of it so far, though it's not quite as good as the home console version.

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown on PS3 — I'm starting to get my head around the retooled Sarah, whom I've dressed as kitschy SEGA icon Ulala from Space Channel 5. £3.69 well spent, that.

Tom Whitehead

Heroes of Ruin, Heroes of Ruin and then some more Heroes of Ruin: I won't have many opportunities for gaming this weekend, and this looks like a title happy to swallow up what little spare time I'll have. I don't often rush out and buy games on launch day, but the concept and demo have pushed all of my buttons, simultaneously. By the time this is published I'll have played the trade-in game and procured a copy, and I'm also happy to exchange friend codes for some online play: 4253-3469-6599.

Mike Mason

Xenoblade Chronicles — Months after UK launch, I'm still chipping away at this a few hours at a time. I'm currently around the 50 hour mark; might this weekend be the one I complete it? Probably not.

Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure — I finally picked this up just before E3. As a lover of SEGA and music games, this is a game that I can't stop nodding my head to.

Jon Wahlgren

This weekend I'll be wrapping up Lollipop Chainsaw on PS3 for review and hopefully resume slugging through my backlog. I'm considering either continuing the trek through Xenoblade or picking Donkey Kong Country Returns back up again after unceremoniously dropping it after two stages when it released. Or maybe I'll get started on that Red Steel 2 replay I've felt like lately. Or Bastion, for a change of pace.

But yeah, Lollipop Chainsaw. Jeez.

Corbie Dillard

Lost in Shadow — With all of the E3 impressions left to write, I doubt I'll have much time, but I've been having this nagging desire to finish up Lost in Shadow for some reason. I loved the game, but wasn't able to finish it up the first time around. There's another part of me that wants to get back into Xenoblade, but I know I don't have the time for that one right now, so I'll just stick with Lost in Shadow. I still consider it one of the true hidden gems of the Wii era. If you haven't tried this game out yet, see if you can track down a copy. It's amazing.

Desiree Turner

Tales of the Abyss for me. It came highly recommended by my favourite quartet of Tingles in the Chat Room, and to be honest it's shaping up to be just the kind of 'cool-down' game I needed after finally beating Xenoblade.

Philip J Reed

Complete playthrough of Bionic Commando (Game Boy version), because I finished it recently and absolutely loved it. I'm also going to be picking up Mega Man X2, which I'm downright ecstatic has finally come to the VC. Then I'm going to try to beat Bezerker99's high score on Bird Mania 3D. Nobody out-birds the Chicken!

Christopher Ingram

I'll be tearing the shrink wrap off my new copy of New Play Control! Pikmin 2 for Wii and diving into Olimar's world head first. I won't have the chance to play it before this weekend, so Saturday morning can't get here quick enough.

When I'm not playing Pikmin 2, I'll be busy playing Gravity Rush for PS Vita and NimbleBit's new iOS title, Pocket Planes.

Ron DelVillano

I'm finally going to dig into The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword this weekend. I woke up this morning with a craving for some good Zelda action, so starting in on this one is at the top of my list.

Marcel van Duyn

Ys Origin — XSEED's been doing an awesome job getting Nihon Falcom games on Steam (PC), and although I've already beaten it, the perfectionist in me can't call it complete until I've got all achievements!

Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure — I've got a huge backlog of DS games, so I think it's finally time to start taking the number down a bit, starting with this surprisingly good action platformer.

Joe Walker

Mega Man 2 — I've been listening to the soundtrack while driving lately which has created a hankering to tackle Wily's robot masters in the series' best entry.

Pokémon White Version — I've still got a few more things I want to do before Black and White Versions 2 hit, and with Pokémon Conquest dropping shortly I won't have much time!

Kirby's Epic Yarn — My wife and I still haven't finished this for some reason.

Star Wars: The Old Republic (PC) — Yeah, it's not Nintendo but this game is my comfort food and I loves me some Star Wars. I just rolled a new Jedi Guardian and I'm having a blast. Darth Bandon server represent!

Jamie O'Neill

Jet Force Gemini — I have intended to return to Rare's 1999 Jet Force Gemini for ages, I was waiting for a large chunk of time to play it to completion, but I'm just happy to restart the N64 sci-fi adventure now. I will also grab the "Defeat the final foe after collecting every Red Star Ring" trophy in PS3 Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II.

Phew, that's a lot of games. So what will you be playing? Let us know in the comments below.

"Heroes of Ruin". All the way until the 3DS battery runs out. What a GAME!
@James: Here is mine 4983 - 4921 - 7488

RevolverLink said:

Donkey Kong '94 and Donkey Kong '94, with some Donkey Kong '94 sprinkled in (also Super Metroid - I really want to beat it this time!).

I always knew Donkey Kong was supposed to be good, but I really wasn't expecting this little puzzle-platformer to be so fantastic. Certainly the best 100 Club Nintendo coins I've ever redeemed.

JAMES GAVE HIS FRIEND CODE!

I don't have HOR, but I will still add you. My FC is: 4725-7951-6337. Will get it when the demo comes out, though!

Anyways, here are my plans for the weekend:

Today
Mother 1 + 2. I need to beat that stupid monkey cave before I go on vacation, as if I don't, I may get lost on the way.
Donkey Kong JR. I want restore points to save my scores, but they aren't here yet. When they come I will play it to death!

Tomorrow
Mother 1 + 2: I am going to vacation, so this game will help me on the way up! If I make it through those monkey caves...
Mario Tennis open: My friend in my vacation area has a 3DS, so I will be playing this with him.

Sunday:
Brain Age express: I need to get this done, I just need to find out how to solve my 5th sudoku puzzle. EVER.
Prince of Persia GBC: I love this game, and I love the fact that you can get into a debug mode-esq area in the last level, so I will be messing with it this weekend.
Mario Kart 7: Club nintendo competition, so I will be glued to this game.

NPC Pikmin 2, like I have every night this week so far for about an hour or so worth of time. Saturday it will get more playtime.

When I'm not playing that, probably continue my hero mode run of Skyward Sword....
And when I'm not play that either, Donkey Kong '94!!!

I just got Skyward Sword, so I'll play that. I've also found I really like Lego Star Wars III. When I'm on the go, I bought Golden Eye 007 for the DS, I'll play that.

FiveDigitLP

FiveDigitLP said:

Minecraft, minecraft, and more minecraft! (On PC, that is.) I found this server that has a great community and have been spending way to much time on it.

I also just started Uncharted, so I'll probably continue playing that this weekend. Maybe a little AC: Revelations (360) on the side too, if I have time. Still have yet to beat that one. It's not as fun as the others.

Oh yeah, and then we're having a classic gaming convention in town, so hopefully I'll get some good street passes there. If I do, then I'll certainly be playing Find Mii II and getting me some good puzzle pieces.

For me it's going to be Epic Mickey & Warioland 4. I decided not to get Heroes of Ruin until I've read a few reviews. The demo was ok, but I wasn't completely sold. I might pick it up at a later date if reviews are postive.

Lately I've been going back and picking up DS games I may have missed. Right now I'm playing Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword. After that I'm going to finish up Kirby Mass Attack, and after I type this I'm acutally on my way to Best Buy right now to pick up a copy of Monster Tale I saw there the other day.

I've been so busy, that my Games have just been piling up haha.

Skyward Sword and Resident Evil 4 Wii for me. I would be playing Mass Effect 2, but the seller I got it from on Amazon sent me a 'new' copy with the DLC code expired... Gonna send it back...

Oh, and also playing Mega Man X and Metal Gear Solid for the first time if I get enough time.

The list at the top is only my "Now Playing" list. Outside of that, I have 57 games that I haven't even touched! It sadens me when I see that... :-(

I am playing Dark Souls on my PS3. I never got to finish it before so I went back and started it all over again. I'm almost finished with my first playthrough, when I'm done I'll go back to finishing Xenoblade Chronicles on my Wii. I also just got Hot Shots Golf for my PS Vita and I am loving it. :)

Moshugan said:

I'm going to finish up Ocarina of Time 3D (finally) and maybe play some of the GBA games on the 3DS. And of course I'll be devouring another chunk of Risen 2! I find it very entertaining what with all it's flaws. (I'm addicted to Piranha Bytes games.) Actually, it's much better after the big update.

Moshugan

Moshugan said:

@TheN64Dude Wow! That's awesome. Retron 3 is an absolutely ugly machine, but it's great that there exist. My SNES, Megadrive, N64 and Gamecube are still working great though.
Ironically, my Wii is the only Nintendo console that's started having problems. It makes this hideous noise whenever a disc is playing. Haven't thought of getting it repaired since Wii U is coming shortly.

Nothing, until my place finally gets finished as far as decorating goes. Thanks a lot OCD for making me a complete anal perfectionist. Yet being an artist has a lot to do with that as well! I haven't gamed in over a month, the last was Tetris on the 3DS's VC. :p

I've got over 10 new releases unplayed in my collection with my pre-order of Pikmin 2 for the Wii being the 11nth. I'm feeling extremely overhwlemed...Again. Time to shut up and play. :p

I've finally gotten stuck into The Last Story and - roaring JRPG clichés aside - I'm finding it to be a great game. Heck, my first session was 5 1/2 hours, and I only turned it off because wrestling was on!

Mega Man 2, F-Zero X, Super Smash Bros 64 & maybe some A Boy & His Blob on the side. BTW Corbie you're probably not reading this, but if you are where did you get Lost in Shadow? That game is rare as hell, took me a year and a half to find A Boy & His Blob, but I still can't find LiS!

DRLAdmin

DRL said:

I desperately need something new and engrossing. Any gems released recently? I have all current home consoles (no PC though). Otherwise, I'm just going "retro" and making love to my N64. I'm okay with this going either way.

Lew3107

#116

Lew3107 said:

@d-lister If you don't already have it (and shame on you if you don't), get Xenoblade Chronicles. It is the best RPG ever released in my opinion. If you're looking for retro games, everything on NeoGeo. That'll keep you for a while :)

DRLAdmin

#117

DRL said:

@Lew3107 Shame on me most definitely - I honestly forgot about that one. Didn't have the time for a new game when it was released and it just slipped my mind.

Lew3107

#118

Lew3107 said:

@d-lister Well, trust me, make sure it tops your list when you buy a new game. It truly makes other games look pathetic; coming from a guy who has logged in over 800 hours on SSBB, Xenoblade Chronicles is the best Wii game by a long shot!

Resident Evil Revelation: havent beatn all raid mode stages.
Asphalt 3D: rented it first since ridge racer 3d wasn't good for me was also skeptical about asphalt since they got similar review scores, bit ended up enjoying the game A LOT! Its a really fun game, and for being a launch game it has pretty good graphics. Bought it, can't wait for next asphalt on 3ds.
Call of Duty MW3: I know their a lot of nay sayers but that's my franchise and need my daily dose of it. Hope COD:BO2 hits 3ds.

Ah Jet Force Gemini, when Rare used to make really awesome games. Makes me want to play it again. Saving all the little furballs was such a pain though. :x

Playing me so more Resident Evil: Revelaitions.

Bassman_Q

#133

Bassman_Q said:

Hmm... lessee... I just FINALLY finished Skyward Sword, so I'll be playing other games this weekend. It's probably gonna be as follows:

On Wii:
Donkey Kong Country Returns, as I just was able to snag a copy for $30 instead of the usual $50. Also, I might play some helpful servings of Kirby Super Star or Monster World IV (VC) on the side.

On DS:
I think I'll try to finally beat Amoebattle this weekend if I have time. That 11th level got me so bad and stuck, it's not even funny. Then, I could also attempt to work my way to getting the Gold Trophy in Plants vs. Zombies. To cool down, I'll probably play some levels of Penguin Patrol on the side (no pun intended).

On PSP:
If I have time on top of playing the other two systems, I'll continue my story mode playthrough of Dissidia 012: Duodecim. Or maybe just play some arcade mode battles, as the story tends to be painfully dragged along. In between, I'll try to get further with the PSmini Velocity, which is crazy awesome. Or maybe finally beat Super Stardust Portable.

B) Take a crack at one of the best Zelda games ever (so I've heard) A Link to the Past.

Kid Icarus, and maybe work on some Master Quest 3D. With my sister starting to play the game, it's motivational for the latter, and the former is a no-brainer. Next weekend, I'll also be playing Heroes of Ruin(DARN YOU LOCILISATION TIMES) and if I don't finish a good bit of it by then, Pokemon Conquest.

@FluffyNinja I was talking with @JonWahlgren the other day about Jet Force Gemini and he raised similar points to you. Hopefully I will have a review of it ready for Nlife next week, I want to make sure that I play through the entire game again first, so that I can be thorough when I re-analyse its content. Perhaps we can chat about it further when the review is live, I just need to find the time to complete the full game.

Meanwhile, I managed to earn the 'All Red Star Rings Found!' trophy in Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II. I really enjoyed the replay value of exploring each level and the way in which searching for the Red Star Rings adds to the longevity of the game. I especially like the areas like Through the Sandstorm, where you can see the Red Star Ring, but there is a risk in using Tails to hover and fly to reach it. Admittedly, I had to check the Internet to work out the placement of the Red Star Ring on Sonic Coaster Rails. Tut tut!

I think that Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II is such a fun game, I hope that it is released on a Nintendo system one day.

@ThomasBW84 and @James
Could you add me? I'm getting Heroes of Ruin as soon as it comes out here in NA. My FC is 3909-7508-7026. As for what I'll be playing, I've been having a Zelda craze, so I've finally decided to actually spend the time with Skyward Sword that it deserves.

I'm playing:

  • Heroes of Ruin (alone, still need to find one or two reliable 3DS gaming partners / friends)
    and:
  • Skylanders Spyro's Adventure
    Maybe I'll try to continue on:
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. I'm about 70% into the main story, but I find this game very lacking in the story part.

I really like this feature. Don't really know why i haven't commented on one of 'em yet.
So far i've played Heroes of Ruin and VVVVVV (user level: 333333). With election work and watching our national team's game this evening i hope i can find the time to do the Daily Quests in HoR today.

@SuperSonic95 can't log on there either not sure why, if I press log in it just loads my profile and shows that I'm logged in, if I return to the forum, it just says "log in" like before.
