Weekend Gaming

I haven’t done one of these in a while, and I’m hoping for a good weekend of gaming, so now is as good as a time as any to ask: what’cha playing this weekend?

Me, I’m about five hours in to Batman: Arkham Asylum and I’m really itching to get back. I am really, REALLY enjoying Batman. Extremely engaging and addictive. It has a bit of a Metroid feel to the exploration and jumping around. What I find most compelling is that I’m not firing hot lead through a rifled barrel at the heads of the bad guys. I know that’s not Batman’s style, but having to be resourceful and creative is quite satisfying. Of course, punching out scores of bad guys is equally satisfying. I’m hoping to make more progress this weekend on Arkham Island.

If time permits, I hope to join the guys from the site for a little Left 4 Dead. If you’re playing the PC version, let us know if you’re interested in joining us for a buttomashing.com L4D night. Also, time permitting, I’d like to make a little more progress with Mass Effect and Fire Emblem: Dragon Sword on the DS. Here’s to hoping.

What’s on tap for you guys?


  1. Man I’d love to play batman, I still haven’t got it. For me I’m going to play a bit of tales of vesperia. Something to tie me over before Borderlands comes out.

  2. Left 4 Dead and maybe some Dawn of War II.

    My son and I have also been playing the tar our of the Dirt 2 demo and I’ve been secretly playing his birthday copy of Fuel.

    …and then there’s God of War on the PSP.

  3. Batman is eating all of my spare brain cycles. And I’m trying to start a Mass Effect career at the same time. And I want to get one of them (read: Batman) finished before Brutal Legend comes out.

    I think I’m going to have to give up sleep. Or work.
