WeekEND gaming (3.3.17)- What are YOU playing?

Seems to be the week of regret for gaming for me. I could have been playing Horizon Dawn, however I cancelled my pre-order at the last minute, it seems everyone is stating how awesome it is. I don't pre-order a console for the first time since 1995(?) and now I read how awesome the games for the Nintendo Switch is. Well at least I won't be homeless by sticking to my budget I'll purchase HD and a Nintendo Switch later in the year. In the meantime i'll take solace talking way to much about Persona4G to drive Mags a bit further to the edge of his sanity

To those with consoles and games I wish I had...along with everyone else...

What are YOU playing?

I don't see Purple Santa as the retiring type. I see his endgame as more the "...And nobody ever saw him again" type of deal. ~ Dav

Hell, 'derail'? This is like calling the surface of the sun 'warmish'. Somewhat lacking in appropriate magnitude~ Jpublic

Darksiders 2 - Finally done 100% my 32nd Platinum. Not as good as the first game but still a lot of fun to be had.

I don't know what I'm going to start next. I wasn't thinking of Breath of the Wild right away but damn the reviews. Hopefully the Wii U version is solid. Could also do FFXV or Fallout 4, all long games though. I don't know...

My gaming diet is going to consist mainly of Torment, Horizon: Zero Dawn & Ace Attorney: Spirit Of Justice. Might also go see Logan. Woo.

I am also regretting not getting preordering a Switch, and will be picking one up the first opportunity I get.

While I wait I shall play Xenoblade Chronicles and Subnautica. May try to get the quad back in the air as well, but I am really thinking I want to wait until it is warmer.

I'm fine with not having a Switch. I've got Shovel Knight to play instead! :P

And XCOM. Still enjoying XCOM.

It's probably going to be a pretty laid back weekend. I may take the kids to the zoo since they've got a dinosaur exhibit that just opened up, but that'll likely be about it. Otherwise, just some relaxing and house work. Oh, and I really need to start car shopping, though I'll likely just look online a bit to price things out. Gaming should be pretty good this weekend:

Horizon: Zero Dawn I hit the open world last night and damn. I want to do EVERYTHING.

DanganRonpa Another Episode Ultra Despair Girls I just love typing that title out. I've got to be getting close to the end of Chapter 2 at this point, and man, I can't overstate how much I love this game.

Final Fantasy XIV Weekly stuff, Dark Knighting it up.

Nice try, Purps, but I'll be too busy basking in the glory of Hyrule to be bothered about Persona. The same goes for YAC and Subnautica.

Happy Switchmas indeed!! Y'all can guess what I'll be playing:

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Boom! My hype levels are through the roof.

The Journey Down Chapter Two - Chris and I will likely wrap this up tomorrow.

Snipperclips - After finishing The Journey Down, we'll be moving on to this gem. It looks great!

Pushmo - Man these late game puzzles are tricky. I'll make at least a little more progress on this. I'm close enough to the end that it would be silly to put the game down now.

Torment: Tides of Numenera - I rather wish I hadn't started this, because now I don't want to put it down. This game is very fun in small 1-2 hour sessions. Just enough time to do a quest or two and learn a little more about the world. I'm only around 5 hours in, so still very early.

The magnanimous has more to do with the carousing Mags did once upon a time

I have an unfortunate number of plans this weekend due to family events, but I'll be playing Nintendo Presents: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for my Wii U video game Nintendo system platform.

Bah, you guys and your new system. I'm over here hyped for Path of Exile's new league that starts later today. They run temporary leagues/seasons with special rulesets and mechanics that last ~3 months each before shutting them down and moving everyone's characters over to a standard, permanent league and starting up a new temporary league with new mechanics. This league's special mechanic are item you can use to activate any 3 of of the 17 previous league's mechanics at once so you can mix and match any of the past leagues. Should result in some crazy results and late nights this weekend.

I'm in a similar situation to Drew. I'm busy almost all day tomorrow and half of Sunday, so gaming time will be limited. Thankfully I'm off all next week! Though even next week is getting rather busy. Sigh, adulthood...

Tales of Berseria and Toukiden Kiwami. I should probably try to play some more Overwatch since I wanted to avoid taking breaks between events, but I'm not sure if i will. I'll probably try to catch up on some more TV shows.

Pretty decent Humble Monthly, but the thing that really caught my eye is that The Witness is in next month's bundle.
