It is Friday, and there is no better way to spend the weekend than playing a new release, or continuing a game that you’ve been playing for a while. Either way, it is time for Weekend Gaming.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon (Xbox 360, PS3, PC) – A game themed after 80’s action films? Check. A protagonist with the name Sgt. Rex Power Colt? Check. Sweet laser weapons and chrome sharks? Check. This standalone expansion to Far Cry 3 looks insanely awesome, and according to Andreas, it is. It looks like an absolute blast, and you don’t need the Far Cry 3 base game to play.
FEZ (PC) – The incredibly popular Xbox 360 indie game was released for the PC this week. The puzzle game stars the character Gomez as he finds out that his world is a bit different than he originally thought. It features some unique ways to solve puzzles, and some really great platforming. Just be prepared for your mind to be blown!

FEZ – Since I did not get FEZ for the Xbox when it was initially released, I thought I would try it out on PC to see what all the hubbub is about the game. I’ve played for about two hours, and I am hooked. The puzzle solving mechanics in the game are great, especially when you are manipulating the world around you to change the perspective. I can’t wait to play it all weekend.
L.A. Noire – This was really cheap on Steam last weekend, and even though I’ve beaten it before, I really enjoyed the game. I’m interested to see how the PC version compares to the Xbox 360 version. I already know one way it will be superior: no disc swapping.

Defiance – I am playing more Defiance this weekend as I am enjoying the MMO Shooter crossover in this interesting universe. It is hard to judge a game like this before putting some decent time into it but it seems alright.
