I have to play unpacking boxes because we just moved. I installed the Diablo 3 beta last weekend but missed out on playing it because the cable wasn't hooked up yet. I was screwed out of some gaming goodness.

Guild Wars 2 is an open beta as far as NDA, but the only way to guarantee a key for the first weekend event is to prepurchase the game.

I'm letting the smoke settle down on GW2 before I dive in so this weekend will mostly be spent doing yard work, fighting allergies, and the inventory of more treasures at the house.

Busy weekend for gaming but hopefully some Witcher 2 and tying up a few loose ends on Skyrim.

BF3, Walking Dead: Episode 1.

Finally finished the main quest for Skyrim, so I will probably be playing BF3 with some friends.
Unless I pick up The Witcher 2. Then I will have to cancel everything except bathroom breaks and the minimum required sustenance my body needs to work a controller.

You should make an event out of it. Set up a date and time to stream the walking dead episode 1 live, invite EvAv viewers to participate over the stream and take suggestions from chat on what decisions you make in the game. (then go play your own save file because we made you get everyone killed)

Let us know in the mmo forum if Tera is the train wreck everyone is making it out to be. Personally I dislike asian mmos but the freestyle action of Tera has me curious. (if I can stand looking at it longer than 5 minutes before my eyes bleed)

Add me to the GW2 beta group.

shindakun 04-27-2012 12:08 PM

I'm going to be streaming GW2 for a while, twitch.tv/shindakun drop by and say hello.

Going to tackle Bioshock. I swear it, I will not start Mass Effect 3 before Bioshock and maybe Planescape: Torment. ... I'll probably start Mass Effect 3.

But between bouts of homework, I hope to finish Freespace 2 (LOVE gog.com) and get deep into Triss ... uh...I mean The Witcher 2:EE.

I have been considering grabbing a flight stick to play some flight titles. Unfortunately, the one I want to reload is Crimson Skies, and that barely worked on the hardware it was designed for. Couple that with the MS stick the game was designed to use being outmoded years ago and you see ... this probably will not happen.

Get a CD for your TG:16 and get Godzilla!!!! It's such a good fighting game I hope you find it for a decent price.

Going to play 'work' tomorrow morning. Which is this title where you wake up at 4am to go run around and do a ton of not fun shit. Though after eight hours, I'll be free.

No clue what I'll be playing. Possibly some League of Legends or a little FFXI.

ElektroDragon 04-28-2012 08:25 PM

I will be playing The Walking Dead (on PS3 since you get a Platinum vs max 500 GS!), Journey, Trials Evolution, Mortal Kombat, and Amalur.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 06:54 PM.
