Our Weekend In Gaming: Tactical Cookware

I'll be honest, gang.  I didn't think we were gonna make it this week, and yet, and yet, here we are.  Another glorious weekend lies just around the corner, and by golly, we're gonna take advantage of it.  We better take advantage of it, anyway.  I'm holding a quiz Monday morning to make sure everyone had a great time, and if not, they're gonna be thrown in, like, Weekend Jail or something equally terrifying.

How the Gen Con Generation is Killing the Video Game Industry

Our Weekend in Gaming: More Like BORED Games, Amiright

The 51st Gen Con kicked off yesterday (not to be confused with "Gin Con," which happens every other weekend at my house), and board game enthusiasts have descended upon Indianapolis like a group of dire rats swarming a party of adventurers. Our very own Enoch Starnes is out there soaking in all that gaming goodness, in fact, so while the bearded man is away, the differently bearded man will play!

We are many. We are one.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Hive Mind

Word has apparently gotten out that No Man's Sky has real, honest-to-gosh co-op, so naturally the Co-Opticrew had to dive in.  Or rather, we will be diving in once the weekend starts.  Hello Games' oft-criticized 2016 release has been undergoing a steady redemption arc over the past couple years, adding in much of the feature set that folks expected to be in it in the first place.  What does this say about the state of game development?  Who knows, but we'll at least find out how much fun it is to explore a procedurally-generated universe with a few friends.

Is it still satire if it rules?

Our Weekend In Gaming: Grimdark - Tales Of Sci-Fi Misery

Moods must be too high around the office, because a couple members of the Co-Opticrew are dipping into the the latest and greatest in Futuristic Misery Simulators.  Part of me hopes that they'll return with tales of honor and glory, but realistically, I know their stories will mostly revolve around dying messily on a forgotten planet for the glory of the Emperor.  We should all be so lucky.

Who knew plundering could be so fun?

Our Weekend In Gaming: Spoils Of War

The Steam Summer Sale is finally over, taking the war on our financial wellbeing with it.  Most of the Co-Opticrew managed to stave off complete destitution, but we were far from impervious to Steam's Digital Delights.  Luckily, we have a fantastic way to cope with our newfound dearth of cash:  playing (or simply admiring) all our new games!

Our Weekend In Gaming: No Bosses Allowed

Whoooo!  Nick and Jason are too busy to respond to our weekly email, meaning this edition of "Our Weekend in Gaming" is a #BossFreeZone.  Get lost, authorities.  This weekend, we live our lives with no rules and no limits.  I'm gonna go play games I didn't even mention below, just to prove that this fella marches to his own dang drum.  I may even go listen to, like, a punk band or something.  Or at least some folksy protest songs.

Well, somebody's gotta fund Gabe's sword collection.

Our Weekend In Gaming: A Steamy Summer

The Co-Opticrew is getting somewhat hot and bothered by a certain Steam Summer Sale, but not quite as much as you'd expect.  To be honest, our tepid reaction to all those sweet, sweet discounts is likely due to the fact that we've already bought everything we could possibly want (and more, Locke) over the last year or two of sales.  Combine that with the fact that Steam has distanced itself from the fun, creative events of years gone by, and you've got a recipe for a week that will likely pass without a huge amount of celebration.

I suddenly have very strong feelings about Vivendi.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Sponsored By Ubisoft

While the Co-Opticrew's weekend plans certainly aren't dominated by Ubisoft games, they're getting their fair share of representation.  Maybe that's a testament to the lengthy support they've been offering for their franchises of late, or maybe it's a simple consequence of being knee-deep in the Summer Doldrums.  Either way, we'll be spending more than a few hours working our way through the best games France has to offer.

Death, taxes, and frenzied video game announcements.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Rise Of The Electronic Three

While it's most likely out of mortal fear, none of the Co-Opticrew is acknowledging the "biggest event in gaming" this weekend.  Instead, we're choosing to stave off the panicked rush of video game news for as long as our minds will allow, which means we're diving deep into titles that really get the dopamine flowing.  Be it through loot, quests, or leaderboards, we're keeping focused on contentment before the flood gates inevitably open.

Who are those lil' scamps gonna fight next?

Our Weekend In Gaming: Battle Kidz

There's gonna be a lot of hootin', a lot of hollerin', and a lot of smack-down-drag-out fightin' this weekend.  The Co-Opticrew must have built up a lot of anger in the last week, cause we're either chasing battles, chasing monsters, or chasing sourcerors over the next couple days.  I suppose it's good to a let a little rage out every now and then, as long as it doesn't end in someone getting fired cause they "smashed every fax machine in the tri-county area".  Or, you know, whatever.

Just your average three day weekend.

Our Weekend In Gaming: The Usual

The Co-Opticrew is mostly spending this Memorial Day weekend (or "Bank Holiday", whatever that is) with some familiar titles.  This may be an indication that Summer is Truly Upon Us, but it's certainly not a bad thing.  In fact, I think it's perfectly valid to spend some time in the safe confines of games you're comfortable with.  It's a scary world out there, why not spend some time with the things you know best?
