Our Weekend In Gaming: Everything Is eSports Edition

I'm still holding out for competitive bandana folding.

Welcome back to the weekend, fellow co-op enthusiasts!  This time around, the Co-opticrew is quickly realizing that nearly anything can be eSports if you try hard enough: jetpack shooting, car soccer, furniture packing, even wedding photos!  I actually lettered in wedding photos my senior year of high school.  Would've gotten a scholarship too, if I hadn't sprained my index finger at a particularly raucous reception.

Anyway, we've also got some dungeon crawls (of both the tabletop and virtual varieties), monster rampages, and masked vigilantism on the agenda.  Check it out!

Nick Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "I'm checking out Duskers, upping my K/D in CoD Black Ops 3 beta, and playing some more Halo: MCC."

Jason Love (@JLove55) - "More Marvel Heroes for me, will finally be checking out the raids this weekend."

Mike Katsufrakis (@Pheriannath) - "I have three sets of people to help move, so I'm playing the 'how much beer can I get in return for all these favors?' game."

Marc Allie (@DjinniMan) - "I picked up a collection of Monsterpocalypse figures.  It's basically Godzilla/Power Rangers the tabletop miniatures game.  It is as if I have seen the sun for the very first time."

Eric Murphy (@smurph_em) - "My wife and I are shooting a friend's wedding this weekend so there won't be much gaming for me.  Maybe I'll squeeze in some Sniper Elite 3 on Sunday."

John Bardinelli (@itsamejohn) - "Tinkering with some game dev tools I grabbed, then indulging in some old school Metroid, because I can!"

Sam Tyler (@thereelsamtyler) - "I'll probably hop on down to the Tesco to check on the latest ZX Spectrum releases!"

Locke Vincent (@LockeVincent) - "Summer Rocket League Master series as well as some good couch stuff with the family.  May have to show Sportsfriends to the family."

Tally Callahan - "Guild Wars 2, tabletop games, and weekly Pathfinder!"

Taylor Killian - "I'll be poppin' Zeds in slow mo on Killing Floor 2 and battling back the eternal darkness as a huge-nosed swordsman in Dark Souls 2."

Enoch Starnes (@enochstarnes) - "I'll be diving deeper into the latest Killing Floor 2 update, engorging a Valkyrie in Gauntlet: Slayer Edition, and maybe doing a bit of emergency Shrimpers"

How about you?  Are you training to be the next professional Dwarf Fortress player, or enjoying something a bit more casual?  Let us know in the comments!
