Weekend Warrior – On Either Side Of The Division

Posted on

The Game Developers Conference is starting next Monday, so many of the editors will be making their way to San Francisco to mingle, and probably also write about video games. For those making the trip, video game time might be light, but for everyone else, there’s plenty to play! With The Division 2 finally out the door, most of us will be spending time in Washington D.C. snagging loot. Otherwise, Devil May Cry 5 is still on a lot of people’s to-do lists.

What are you playing this weekend? Is anyone still playing Anthem? Can somebody tell us where to find this Carmen Sandiego we keep hearing so much about? Let us know in the comments.

Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – I am going to play my drums this weekend. I am writing it here in order to commit myself to it. I don’t play them enough, and it bums me out. Otherwise, I am still playing One Piece: World Seeker despite having beaten it. I want to do all the sidequests and get all the outfits! Other gaming commitments include Baba is You on Switch and finishing up Crackdown 3. Also, I am happy that Star vs. The Forces of Evil is back on TV. That’s a show not enough people talk about. It’s great. Finally, I will make a grilled cheese sandwich with mayo, so I can talk about my experience on the podcast.

Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – This weekend I don’t know if I’ll have any time for games, but I’m extremely curious about starting up The Division 2. I’ll most likely play another round of the board game Sheriff of Nottingham though. Good fun!

Suriel Vazquez (@SurielVazquez) – Washing away the disappointment of not being invited to the Mortal Kombat 11 online stress test with some Devil May Cry 5, and maybe from Resident Evil 2?

Javy Gwaltney – I’ll be watching a bunch of fancy-schmancy foreign movies (The 400 Blows, Seventh Seal) when I’m not playing DMC 5, The Division 2, and revisiting Red Dead Redemption II.

Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – I’m looking at getting in a ton of Overwatch as usual, but I’ll keep playing Far Cry New Dawn, Marvel Strike Force, and probably something else along the way. Who knows?

Imran Khan (@imranzomg) – This weekend, I’m going to play more Devil May Cry 5, like I did last weekend and all this week. I haven’t jumped into Son of Sparda mode yet since I’m still just exploring for secret missions and the like to get most of the skills before jumping into SoS. I also might play The Division 2? I’ve heard enough good things that it seems worth trying, at least.  

Jay Guisao (@GuisaoJason) – More Awakening this weekend. Also, sleep, sleep, and more sleep. Might play some Overwatch. Might get back into Final Fantasy IX. I’ll let you know, if I’m awake long enough. 

Hunter Wolfe (@Hunter_Wolfe) – This weekend, I’ll be playing catch up with the fourth and final season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead. Which means I’ll probably need tissues. Currently, I’m playing this super fun adult game called apartment shopping. What a time suck!!

Nathan Anstadt (@NathanAnstadt) – I’ll finally be finishing Final Fantasy Tactics. At least I better! It’s been haunting me since I moved to Minneapolis, so I’m hopeful that this weekend it’ll finally happen. Or I’ll find some St. Patrick’s Day festivities. Then it’s more Trials Rising and Call of Duty 4 for me.
