We're like doomsday preppers, but with video games, and also we're not insane.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Stockpiling

The Co-Opticrew has begun to emerge from their various comfort food-induced comas, which means that the preparation for a harsh winter must begin.  We've already stocked up on almost all the necessities (food, water, firewood, virginal blood to conduct our nightly Yuletide rituals, bedding, etc), so that leaves just one final item:  video games.

Our Weekend In Gaming: A Peaceful Transition

Ah, and we're back once more.  Soothing, isn't it, coming back to this little bastion of peace once a week before diving straight into a weekend of debauchery?  There's some small comfort in knowing that every single Friday, you can read about the Co-Opticrew's plans before transitioning into those of your own.  As you read through each answer, let your workweek troubles fall away until you're left with nothing but high hopes and a huge thing of tequila.  Where'd that tequila come from?  Good question.  I can't tell you it appeared because you read all of our responses, but I also can't tell you it didn't.

I'm unreasonably proud of this title.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Kamehamehuh?

It's the freakin' weekend!  You know what that means, gang.  It's time to dance in the fall leaves, drink cider on porches, and further our all-digital futures.  Gears of War 4 continues to eke out an existence in the caverns and alcoves of our collective minds, but it too shall fall away with time.  What better way to replace it than with Civilization 6, a grand tale of empires rising and colliding and - ... hold on a second.

The hottest track of 2016.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Civilization Remix ft. Sean Bean

Hello, again!  We've arrived once more at the end of the week, and just in time, too, as Sean Bean's own Civilization VI is finally out.  It seems like most of the Co-Opticrew will be busy with other ventures this weekend, but sooner or later, they'll hear the sweet siren-song of Sid Meier's latest release.  They'll try to resist.  Oh, how they'll try.  But none will be able to withstand it for too long.  I'd estimate that, about three weeks from now, the Weekend in Gaming posts will begin to dwindle as the staff slowly drifts out of reality.  Soon after, we'll assimilate with the Gandhiverse, completing the cyber-ritual and finally deifying Sid Meier.

Our Weekend In Gaming: The Most Spectral Time Of The Year

October is well and truly upon us!  "But Enoch," I can hear you saying, "technically, October was upon us last weekend."  I hear those voices of dissent, and to them I say: shut up.  We play by my rules around these parts, and I have the final say on when things are or aren't upon us.  Plus, I had other things to talk about last weekend.  Specifically, car things.  More specifically, car things down under.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Cruisin' AUS

Racing's on the mind this weekend, folks. The Co-Opticrew has gotten a taste of the latest in the Forza Horizon series, and now we just can't get enough. It's like they say: Once you pop, you become addicted to cruising the Outback in pursuit of growing your brand and enticing more fans to join your absurdly destructive car festival until you're a dust-covered husk of your former self.

Get a load of the new folks.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Fresh Meat

Ladies and gentlemen, I have the pleasure of introducing the two latest additions to the Co-Opticrew: Perron Wiley and Brian Harrison!  Naturally, in accordance with the 1986 edition of Gaming Journalism Customs And Bylaws, we'll be conducting a series of hazing rituals throughout their first week of employment.  Get this:  first, we have them "writing articles", and once that's done, they'll have to "play video games".  Then, once they think they're finally out of the woods, they'll be "telling dumb jokes on Slack".

Our Weekend In Gaming: One Unstoppable Attorney

At long last, the Co-opticrew has another chance to relax and reflect on what seems to have been quite the busy week.  More and more, the staff here is returning to its local gaming roots, indicating our growing desire for face-to-face interaction.  Through couch co-op, board games, and roleplaying games, we've trended back towards the chance to sit down with a few friends, chat about nothing in particular, and work towards a common goal.  Perhaps that will change in the future (especially once VR co-op becomes more commonplace), but for now, we're mostly content to sip on our beverages of choice and talk smack about the lines of code that oppose us.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Hail to the Chiefs

Good afternoon!  The Co-opticrew is recovering from the PAX West News-A-Thon, and to reinforce the fact that we're all totally human and not at all cyborg journalists attached to a central hivemind, we're each doing so in our own, unique ways.

Our Weekend In Gaming: The Legion of Shame

Ah, September is finally here.  As marked by the release of the latest Madden iteration, game releases will soon start piling in, flooding our living rooms, and darkening our windows.  This time around, I think we're mostly ready for The Releasening, but to make sure that's the case, we're either dipping back into franchises we know and love or finishing up lingering reviews.
