The North East United States is in a heat wave, so that means it's time to strip down to your underwear, strap an ice cube tray to an oscillating fan, and play some VIDEOGAMES. The staff has plenty on their plate this weekend, which is surprising after a solid week in which we reviewed a ton of co-op games. But the fun never stops at Co-Optimus HQ.
Nick "bapenguin" Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "I'll be working through Spec-Ops the Line when I get a chance but it's mostly wrapping up Blue Shield Alliance."
Mike "Pheriannath" Katsufrakis (@Pherinnath) - "Hopefully my weekend isn't too busy, but I should be playing Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 on both my PC and iPad. I might dip back into Diablo 3 a bit, but I also have a game of Civ V to finish up as well. Oh, and Gravity Rush. VIDEOGAMES."
Marc "DjinniMan" Allie (@DjinniMan) - "LEGO Batman 2, Magic 2013, and some Diablo 3 here and there, for me."
Andrew "Cubninja" Gaskill (@Cubninja) - "I'll continue the experiment in lunacy that is Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor. When it gets especially heinous I'll use Sniper Elite V2, Diablo 3, or Max Payne 3 to try to bring myself back from the brink of insanity. "
Jason "OrigamiPanther" Love (@JLove55) - "I'll be taking my pale self to the beach. So if you live on the East Coast and you see a sudden bright flash around noon tomorrow, you'll know what's up."
Paul "EastX" Acevedo (@SegaCon) -"I'm planning on some Virtual-On Force and Iron Brigade, plus a smattering of the original Final Fantasy on Windows Phone."
Eric "smurphster" Murphy (@smurph_em)- "I can't get enough Ghost Recon. GRFS, GRAW, & GRAW2 are all possibilities depending on who's online. I'll also spend some time on my Minecraft server."
Sam "Samoza" Tyler (@reelsamtyler) - "Tell your friends, all your friends - I will be playing LEGO Batman 2, as well as watching England vs. Italy in the Euro Quarter Finals!"
Locke Vincent (@LockeVincent) - "Unplugging from the grid for the weekend to go camping. Will be doing some board games, some of which are even co-op: Letters From Whitechapel, Arkham Horror, and Shadows Over Camelot. "
Tally "xelissa" Callahan - "Not sure what I'll be playing this weekend. I'll just have to see what mood strikes me."
Chris "The Lemko" Metz (@The_Lemko) - "TBD"
How about you, Co-Optimus Community? What will you be playing this weekend?
