Every Friday we’ll post Weekend Gaming, which will be a summary of some of the new releases you should be paying attention to, along with games that we plan on playing this weekend.
Crysis 3 (Xbox 360, PS3, PC) - The latest entry in the popular Crysis series is now on store shelves. You continue to play as Prophet, trying to take down the evil CELL corporation that has taken control of New York City. It features some of the best graphics seen this generation, and a freakin’ bow and arrow. That should be enough to get you excited for the game.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengence (Xbox 360, PS3) - The newest Metal Gear game doesn’t focus on stealth, but on intense combat with a futuristic sword. Raiden features as the main character as you slice and dice through the single player. Andreas reviewed the game, and he seemed to really enjoy it.
Brandon’s Weekend Gaming
Crysis 3 - I’ve played about four hours of the single player campaign, and I am enjoying it so far. I have never played a Crysis game before, so this is new to me. The whole suit idea is pretty interesting. But the best part about this game is the bow and arrow, called the Predator Bow. It has an excellent feel to it, and picking off enemies from a distance is extremely satisfying.
The Witcher 2 - I am still chipping away at this game. I have advanced past the tutorial of the game, which runs for a couple of hours. Now that it is starting to open up, I’m starting to get more interested in spending more time with it.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown - One huge mistake playing this game is thinking you’ll be able to play for a hour or so and put it down. I started playing this at midnight the other night, thinking I would beat the first few missions before going to bed. Next thing I know it is three in the morning. I haven’t played it since that night, but that is what this weekend is for.
Andreas’ Weekend Gaming
Crysis 3 - I will continue to take part in ‘The Year of the Bow’ and am excited to dive deeper into Prophet’s story in Crysis 3. I love the Maximum powers in the Crysis series and CryTek always makes it fun to mess around in a sandbox. Plus, who doesn’t want to mess up aliens and play in a post-apocalyptic overgrown New York City?
Darksiders 2 - Unfortunately I never got a chance to play Darksiders 2 at launch and even more depressingly, THQ has been shut down since with Vigil being one of the victims – until Crytek purchased the studio and formed an American outpost – full circle on my weekend, right? The second entry into the Darksiders franchised was well received and I am curious to see if I will enjoy it as much as I did when playing the original Darksiders.
What will you be playing this weekend? Let us know in the comments!
