With doubt surrounding the Ni No Kuni sequel, a few of us have taken kindly to its positive reception and are going to delve into this whimsical, Ghibli-esque adventure this weekend. With Brigitte’s addition to Overwatch, some of us are going to see if Reinhardt’s squire is up to snuff in the meta. What are you going to conquer this weekend? Be sure to let us know in the comments below.
Jon Bowman (@MrGameAndWrite) – I’ll be playing The Show, assuming the early access period for those who pre-ordered it is actually real. Also, this might be the weekend that I finally try out Warframe. I’ve finally begun to notice a gaping hole in my life since I hit the wall with Destiny 2 a while back. I need some sci-fi shooting in my life, and I think I’m ready to get back out there and find that game.
Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – This weekend I’ve convinced myself that I’ll get into Ni No Kuni II. I’ve tried 3,000 times to play and get into JRPGs as much as when I was a kid and have had a tough time. Maybe this one though, maybe this one. Other than that, I hope to find time to play A Way Out with a buddy. Have a good weekend!
Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – I am hoping to see Isle of Dogs this weekend. I unfortunately (stupidly?) missed Early Man while it was in theatres, so I plan on doing my best to not miss this stop-animated feature film. Now that my review for Sea of Thieves is complete, I plan on returning to games I want to play just for fun, which I think is Bloodborne, right now. We’ll see.
Robbie Key (@RobbieKeyV) – Sleeping. I want to sleep and eat fried chicken, at the same time if possible.
Shea (@BrianPShea) – I’m traveling back from GDC today, so I’m looking forward to sitting down and playing with Brigitte in Overwatch once I get home. When I’m not doing that, I’ll likely continue Yakuza Kiwami. I’m also hoping to put a bow on Pokémon Omega Ruby.
Daniel Tack (@dantack) – Bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers with garlic aioli. Applewood bacon fresh jalapenos cream cheese and of course the special stuff – smoky gouda and some Parmigiano-Reggiano. Garlic aioli is a must and of course some light accoutrements on the side for additional flavor and taste.
Joey Thurmond (@DrJoeystein) – I’m going to be taking it easy after a busy week. My Friday night plans are to push back the Skaven hordes in Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide with my favorite guys and play Overwatch with another good friend. I might try to play some God of War: Ascension over the weekend, but I mostly plan on catching up on some reading and other friends.
Leo Vader (@leovader) – Playing Rainbow 6 Siege, my team will be finishing up our first ten matches of ranked (which we’re finally graduating to from casual) and seeing where we get placed! Somebody told me to turn off some Windows 10 setting about mouse precision and I’m immediately ten times the shooter I used to be, so my love affair with Siege is far from over. Beyond that, I’ll keep chipping away at Yakuza Kiwami! I always sit down intending to make progress and walk away two hours later having only done side missions and activities. I need to finish that story before The Song Of Life! HAGS!
Jeff M (@GIJeffM) – I took a much-too-long hiatus from Monster Hunter: World while reviewing Kingdom Come, but I think I’m finally ready to get back to the action. I also might spend more time in a secret game that must not be named, and attempt to wrap my head around Surviving Mars’ tutorial-less colony building. I don’t get it, but I want to!
Kimberley Wallace (@kstar1785) – I just picked up my pre-order of Ni no Kuni II, so I’m excited to dive into that this weekend. I really like what I played of it at TGS and Joe’s review only made me more optimistic about it. Even though I’ve completed Monster Hunter: World’s story, the fun never ends. I beat Deviljho twice already, but I’ll need to capture him a few more times to get his sweet gear. Other than that, Overwatch is always a guarantee for me these days. I’m really digging Brigitte. She might be a new main for me. Not only is stunning people with her shield fun, but she also can be a huge asset in how much she can buff teammates up (especially in increasing their max health). I’m sure that will get nerfed eventually, but for now I’m loving it.
