Geekend Update 8/21/15

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

Jordan Loeffler, Editor in Chief: Could this be the weekend I finally put The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt back into my PS4? I think it might. After all, I’ll have to put SOME time into that thing before Big Boss makes his September 1 entrance.

Myles Farrington, Executive Editor:Well, it has been quite a while since I had to fill one of these out. You folks can thank good Harry Loizides for bringing this one back. Anyway, my weekend is shaping up to be a normal one. I go to the gym, eat and then return to hibernation until Tuesday (reset day for Destiny). All this I do in wait of The Taken King DLC… and I might play a little Binding of Isaac in the mean time.

Harry Loizides, Executive Editor: I’m not sure if I’ve been living under a rock or what, but I finally started playing Mario Kart 8. Boy oh boy have I been missing out! I’ll have to venture into the online play to see if it’s just as amazing.

Jesse Webster, Senior WriterOk, I admit that I traded in The Witcher 3 a few weeks ago, and now that I got a chance, I bought it again digitally. So, I’m back on that. I was going to do New Game Plus, but I must have screwed up a save, and now must do it all over again. Oh, well. I’ll be playing that as I wait for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is out.

Aaron Dobbe, Associate Writer: For once, my weekend isn’t completely packed with busywork to do! I’ll be using this time to catch up on all the recent Splatoon content I haven’t had a chance to play with yet. I will also be continuing my ever-so-gradual playthrough of Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, which is proving to be a real challenge so far even for a series veteran like myself.

Adam Leonard, Associate Editor: I’ll be spending the weekend taking a quick break from gaming while I finish up my review of the latest Danganronpa game. Then I’ll be back to it as I begin reviewing Until Dawn next week. Just counting the days until I’m feeling a certain Phantom Pain

Esteban Cuevas, Associate Editor: Final Fantasy VII! I’ve been playing it again on PC and having a blast. I might also play something else as a friend of mine might be coming over to hang out but nothing’s planned so far.

Darius Purse, Associate Writer: I really haven’t played anything these last few weeks, but this weekend is looking like a good time to finally check out Rocket League and finish some more levels in Trine 2.

Landon Luthi, Associate Writer: I have been busy with some older games like Mario Golf: World Tour and every NES Mega Man lately. I will begin my fourth attempt at beating the new Terraria content come Monday and will likely break more stuff in my apartment. After my sad attempt of redemption, I will eat fourteen buckets of fried chicken and cry myself to sleep every night until Super Mario Maker is released.
