Our Weekend In Gaming: One Long Weekend, Please

Most of the Co-Opticrew has an extra long weekend coming up, and we aren't about to let it go to waste.  You won't find us groggily staring at a blank Netflix screen at 3AM, no sir.  Nobody's gonna catch us lying in a pile of Four Loko cans while Avril Lavigne's "Sk8er Boi" plays faintly from a nearby 6-disc CD player.  Not a chance.  We've got work to do, and by "work to do", I mean "video games to marathon through."

Our Weekend In Gaming: Microeconomics

While financial experts around the world are working out just how badly the pandemic will affect the global economy, the Co-Opticrew has taken it upon themselves to bring about their own miniature economic investigation.  First, we're taking an in-depth, undercover look at the safety conditions of dwarven miners.  Then, we'll be figuring out how a monetary system is in any way possible on a remote island with approximately ten inhabitants.

Are we sure it's not Tuesday again?

Our Weekend In Gaming: Wait, what?

Let's be real with each other.  I'm not positive what time of day it is right now, and I'm definitely not sure if it's Friday.  The Co-Opticrew seems to be responding to my investigatory "Weekend in Gaming" email positively, though, so I'll take that as a sign that I'm in the right half of the week, at least.  As time continues to blur and meld into one interminable day, I'll try to keep things straight with our weekly(?) get-togethers.

Our Weekend In Gaming: As The World Turns

Gears are turning around the world as folks create plans for re-emergence, but Co-Optimus HQ is still buckled down for the foreseeable future.  That's not the worst situation, though, as there are plenty of new games to sink our pale, sterile claws into.  Maybe when summer rolls around, we'll start looking wistfully out our windows again, but for now, things are golden.

We came, we saw, and also a third thing.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Sweet Victory

Victory reigns supreme this weekend at Co-Optimus HQ.  Whether it's a cross-country move or a really hard platformer, we've met the task head-on and thoroughly conquered it.  Unless, that is, you include bonus DLC, like extra levels or all the things that need to be done after a cross-country move.  As a matter of fact, we may need to cancel that all-night celebratory rager.  We've, uh, got some things to take care of.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Shake It

The Co-Opticrew is both movin' and shakin' this weekend, and we won't stop until we get what's rightfully ours.  On the movin' front, that means a new house and a new life.  Shakin'-wise, we're looking for an ungodly amount of fruit (and hopefully none of those dadgum wasps).  Be on the lookout for our next weekly check-in to see if we achieved either of those things.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Cold Turkey

The Co-Opticrew is cleaning up our act this weekend.  We've spent far too long wringing the last droplets of enjoyment out of some recent releases, and honestly, it's starting to look a little sad.  Just imagine what our grandchildren would think if they heard about the time their dear old grandparent was found sobbing next to an empty DOOM Eternal case.  I shudder at the possibility.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Self-Isolation Blues

The days are starting to blend together here at Co-Optimus HQ, but based on my series of chalk lines homemade calendar, I think the weekend is about to start.  There was a small blip of game releases that happened a few weeks ago, and it seems that the Co-Opticrew is trying to wring every last morsel of entertainment out of them.  Hard times, indeed.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Animalistic

The Co-Opticrew's going whole hog on this weekend with a slew of intense, over-the-top video games.  First off, we'll be RIPPING the arms off DEMONS, then we plan on CRANKIN' some baseballs into the STRATOSPHERE.  Once that's done, we'll be focusing on ways to FINANCE OUR HOME LOANS with RESPONSIBLE PAYMENT PLANS, and afterward, we'll get back to SLAYING katana-wielding GHOSTS.

Fighting demons or being indebted to a raccoon, take your pick.

Our Weekend In Gaming: We're All Doomed

Appropriately, the Co-Opticrew is spending this weekend researching the potential results of a global apocalypse.  Granted, the situation they're analyzing is more, uh, demonically-focused, but you might as well be prepared for all outcomes, right?  With any luck, we'll emerge from the weekend with a greater understanding of how to double jump and rip the limbs off any monstrosity that looks at us funny.

Truly an art form.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Indoor Living

While most of the world crumbles under the weight of a thousand toilet paper rolls, the Co-Opticrew is maintaining a strict regimen of staying indoors and keeping our social distance.  Luckily, co-op gaming no longer requires everyone to be on the same couch, so our plans aren't terribly different than normal.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Crime Time

The Co-Opticrew is dipping a toe into some morally grey areas this weekend (just to see how it feels, of course).  Our intentions are thoroughly journalistic, but I suppose we can't help but keep our digital, ill-gotten gains.  Will this serve as a gateway experience into deeper, darker flights of fancy, or will the pressure of doing something really mean scare us back into lawfulness?  Find out next week on another exciting episode of "Our Weekend In Gaming"!

It may rust, though.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Metal Will Never Die

The Co-Opticrew may be slowly emerging from the dark recesses of winter, but that doesn't mean the dark recesses of our hearts are going anywhere.  As testament to that fact, we're spending the weekend immersed in the metal lifestyle.  Whether it's through the wailing of guitars or the gnashing of skill trees, we'll be paying tribute to the most brutal of music genres the only way we know how.
