Weekend Gaming and What I’m Playing

So after finishing Mass Effect 2, I felt liberated and wanted to get to some new games. Funny thing is, I really wanted to get back to Borderlands. So I talked a couple friends into trying out the game themselves and the three of us have been running around Pandora at least once a week. I started a new character (Lilith) and am really liking this play through. I still mess around with Mordecai, but playing with friends is infinitely better.

I also started a couple online dynasties in NCAA 11, again with a different friend. I have a lot to say about NCAA 11, but for now I’ll just say I love all the additions to this iteration and the online dynasty tools are really, really cool.

Gamefly finally sent me Crackdown 2 and I’ve spent a few hours back in Pacific City. It feels distantly familiar but ultimately hollow. It is still fun to collect orbs and cause mayhem but I don’t know how much more I’ll be playing.

At a recent Gamestop Sale I picked up copies of Metro 2033 and Final Fantasy XIII. James is currently playing FFXIII, so along with Borderlands, I also started 2033. I’m only about an hour and half in, so I don’t really have an opinion yet.

I’m ashamed to admit I still haven’t played Blur, even though I picked it up weeks ago.

So I have quite a bit on my plate. That’s not counting how badly I am resisting Starcraft 2. What will you be playing this weekend?

  1. Is this Borderlands on 360 or Steam? I’m game for both!

    Also, I think the DLC on the 360 is half off right now.

    • We’ve got a three-man (well, two men and a lady) gang right now on the 360 and would love a fourth! We try to get in one or two sessions a week. I’ll let you know when we’re playing this week.

      (And we all picked up all the DLC this week from the sale)
