Our Weekend In Gaming: Grinding Our Gears

Don't even get us started on General RAAM.

Well, hello again!  It looks like it's time for another one of our weekly chats, and by "our", I mean "my", and by "weekly chats", I mean "one-sided descriptions of the staff's weekend plans".

If things seemed a little lighter on the news front this week, it's because the Co-Opticrew has apparently been reviewing every game in existence for the past few days or so.  Go ahead, try and name something we haven't reviewed.  Surprisingly decent sequels of crude Duke Nukem clones?  We've got that.  Viking-centric 2D brawlers?  Gotcha there too.  How about the latest in the "Buff Soldiers Wreck Enemies Of Humanity" genre?  Uh, duh.  Cutesy arcade RPGs?  Are you even trying at this point?

Look, my point is that the staff's been pretty busy this week, so we deserve a chance to sit back, relax, and drink in the weekend.  Let's check out what exactly that entails:

Nick Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "I think Mike and I are doing some Horde mode tonight still. Otherwise no time for gaming this weekend, but like Enoch - would love to try more Overwatch Co-Op!"

Jason Love (@JLove55) - "I will hopefully make my way through at least the third case in Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice, and possible continue my Wang-erific New Game Plus adventures in Shadow Warrior 2."

Mike Katsufrakis (@Pheriannath) - "Gears of War 4 and World of Warcraft for me, thanks."

Eric Murphy (@smurph_em) - "We've got a busy weekend coming up so there won't be much gaming for me. My wife and I might find time to continue our Halo 3 campaign in Halo: The Master Chief Collection."

Marc Allie (@DjinniMan) - "Gears is restoring my faith in gaming due to the awesome couch co-op! Also some Starfox Zero and sure, why not some Overwatch too?"

John Bardinelli (@itsamejohn) - "Cooling down from a few co-op games this week with the quirky and friggin adorable platform RPG Wuppo."

Locke Vincent (@LockeVincent) - "On the road shooting a music video, so it is all about Darkest Dungeon on the Vita."

Sam Tyler (@thereelsamtyler) - "Depending on whether the other half goes out I will be partaking of Gears of War Judgment, or watching soaps."

Tally Callahan - "In a bit of a lull for video games right now. I might hit up some Helldivers or check out the latest DLC for Battleborn."

Enoch Starnes (@enochstarnes) - "While my roommate and I plan on working our way through The Master Chief Collection, in all likelihood, we'll just be grinding for Halloween loot boxes in Overwatch.  Come play co-op with us!"

Perron Wiley - "With all the positive buzz I've been reading about Shadow Warrior 2, I'll probably be taking that for a spin."

How about you?  Has our barrage of reviews convinced you to try anything new this weekend?  Let us know in the comments!
