Weekend, what are you playing?

It's halfway through June already? That's fast. Summer is officially over for us here in the Philippines but there's still a weekend for hours of gaming on end! What are you playing?

Migoy: Technically I'm not home for the weekend so I'll just mention games I've played these past few days. Been spending a lot of time playing Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers (quite a mouth full ei?). The opening of the game is awesome as shit but then the game changes pace drastically. It's definitely not the game I expected it to be but I am enjoying it quite a bit. You can find some clips of my antics at the TooMuchGaming Youtube channel.

Since I'm going to be out for the weekend, I'll be bringing Phats (my PSP1000) for portable gaming fun incase I need a distraction. Gonna be bringing Dissidia 012 Duodecim as I am still playing that game. I'm also bringing Blazblue: Continium Shift 2, the combo system in the game feels very different compared to the firsy Blazblue so this'll be interesting.

Arlie: I've been playing Duke Nukem Forever since it was released for the PC. I really can't wait to finish it, and honestly I don't think that I will be able to (Yep, it's THAT bad). It is entertaining to some point just because of Duke's humor, but that's just it. In terms of gameplay, story don't expect much also, playing it just to see tits are not even worth it. It may be enjoyable to some people, but it just didn't meet on what I was expecting it to be. When Hong Kong PSN got back online earlier this week, I went back on playing L.A. Noire to redeem my free "The Naked City" Ad Vice Case and Badge Pursuit Challenge DLC off the Asian PlayStation Store. I'm going to get a Rockstar Pass with a friend so I could also get the other DLC cases. I also played Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds a while ago and I already finished Arcade for all the characters and a 100% Gallery for two gold trophies and a couple of online ranked matches (which I lost to almost all of them). What I've been looking forward to play this weekend is Outland and Alice: Madness Returns.



Quash: Arcade weekend!! it's all about arcade games for me this weekend. Took a break from the common genre's like shooters or RPGs so I went with games like Dead Nation, Super Stardust HD and Outland.

Super Stardust HD can be pretty addicting. Aiming for the highest possible score in the game is just enough to keep you playing again and again. I wish it had a couple more planets but replaying the planets over and over to reach a good score can still makes hours go by. Dead Nation? I mentioned this before that I've already finished the game. All I'm doing now is I'm finishing it in another difficulty for some trophies. I always tell people I'm not much of an achievement junkie, but I still bother with some achievements for some reason. Damn those virtual achievements!

Last but not least we have Outland. Tried the demo and I just had to get this game. I bought this yesterday together with my Rockstar Pass(for L.A Noire DLCs) and it's worth the 10 bucks. It has such a great game design and art style. A solid 2D platform game that gives you the old Castlevania feel. I haven't played a platform game in a long time so getting Outland was perfect. I'm like 3 hours in and the game is getting insane.
