Weekend Gaming: Spring Break Edition

1352293438_3c76a6fbeb_zThis coming week is Spring Break for the young buttonmashers, so we’ve been playing a family trip to the Big Apple. I’ll be driving the majority of the way there, so while we’re on the road they’ll be jamming with their 3DSes and Fire HD’s while I slave away in the driver’s seat. I don’t anticipate a whole lot of gaming for me for the next week or so.

Of course, being the Buttonmasher that I am, I am planning on a trip to the Nintendo Store in New York. Besides filling up our 3DSes with Street Passes, I’m looking forward to the kids’ reactions to two floors of Nintendo gaming Nirvana. If there was such a place when I was 12, I’d have to be dragged out, kicking and screaming. The Statue of Liberty has the history and the Empire State Building has the views, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to be Dad of the Year when we walk into the Nintendo Store.

But we aren’t leaving until Sunday, so in the meantime, it’s extremely possible that I pick up a copy of The Division before I head out of town. I think the communal love-affair with Diablo III has waned and we’re all looking for something new to play. Right now, The Division has risen to the top of everyone’s wishlist.

And you know, with the game set in Manhattan, I could actually say I need to get this game. It’d be a great way to ahem familiarize myself with the city.

Especially if the Apocalypse hits while we’re there!

What are you playing this weekend?
