The Geekend Update: 4/4/15

Weekends are meant strictly for gaming; at least that’s what we think. Here is where you can find out all of our crazy plans for the upcoming weekend!


Courtney Osborn, Editor in Chief:

I’ll be logging more hours in MLB 15: The Show, continuing my win streak as the Royals!  When I’ve had enough baseball I’ll most likely continue my 3rd playthrough of Final Fantasy XIII.  Both games will be streamed over on our Twitch channel off and on this weekend so be sure and check it out!

 

Myles Farrington, Senior Editor:

I don’t know what I’ll be playing! I have Bloodborne, Helldivers and PlayStation Plus games galore, but I’m feeling like I need to go into hibernation until Mortal Kombat X and House of Wolves. I dunno, maybe I’ll go outside… Nah.

 

Shawn Richards, Senior Editor

I have re-found my addiction to The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. I am also going to be hopefully finishing my Nuzlocke of Pokemon: Omega Ruby. I am already in pain. You will be missed, Mine? and Leaf Ninja.

 

Brian Hoerst, Associate Editor:

Obligatory streaming notice: join me, Jason and Ryan on Twitch.tv/MONGplays at 11 a.m. ET Sunday for our weekly NHL 15 stream. Last week I won a game for the first time, so you probably won’t see that happen again. Go #CBJ!

 

Lucy Pallent, Senior Writer:

Amiibo are dead to me! Instead, I’ll be playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3D for the next 48 hrs!

 

Aaron Dobbe, Associate Writer:

I’m going to cry about amiibo for 48 hours.

And I guess I’ll be playing some games. Planning on revisiting Super Mario 64 via the Virtual Console, and probably continue trophy hunting in Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus and Mirror’s Edge.

 

Benjamin Luthi, Associate Writer:

I have the next five days off, so my goal is to be as unproductive as possible. It’ll be Minecraft, Pokémon Shuffle, Animal Crossing, and Professor Layton, all sandwiched between copious amounts of cereal and sleep.

 

Landon Peterson, Associate Writer:  

I’ll be continuing my losing streak against a certain electrified Bloodborne boss this weekend.  Once I’ve gone 0-18 with said boss, I’ll become a mayor in Animal Crossing: New Leaf thanks to Club Nintendo.  Have a great weekend!

 

Ryan Amirault, Associate Writer:

This weekend I am prepared to die many times in Bloodborne. That’s really my main focus, though I’ll dabble in other things as well like Destiny and Resogun (two games I always come back to). Happy Easter everyone!


What games are you playing this weekend?
