Today is going to be the longest Friday in memory due to the work I have to get done, but I'm looking longingly to tonight and this weekend, where I probably won't game that much, but will be getting in at least some:

DQVIII
Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time


and

I may revisit Guitar Hero again in preparation for a trip to see my niece and nephew. They now have the game and I'm all interested in doing the duelling guitars thing.

Nothing at all.  My 360 is dead, and nothing on the PC currently has my attention.  Guess I will be watching a lot of TV.

Super Robot Taisen for me and maybe I'll finally get around to trying out the Saint's Row demo.

Arkon - Your 360 is dead?  When did that happen?  Starshifter just lost his not too long ago and had to replace it.  I wonder if that mean I'm next!!??

/gets on knees and prays to the 360 gods of vengence

This weekend I am planning on playing lots of college basketball on the 360 I hope.

Gotta work every-other weekend and this is a weekend that I must work, so strictly PSP.

Getting back into Metal Gear Acid˛, still enjoying the heck out of Tekken: Dark Resurrection, and small bouts of Megaman: Powered Up are planned on lunch breaks and whatnot.

(if THINKING about playing Dead Rising counts, then I'll be doing quite a bit of that)

Last night, the disc tray won't open unless I use a paper clip to pop the manual eject.  Even then if I put a game in, it doesn't register as properly closing.  MS is sending a prepaid box.

Well, my weekend started yesterday (Whoo hoo for 4 day mini-vacations of doing nothing!).

I played Rise of Legends until I finally realized I hated this game.  (1st mission of the Cuotl campaign, where you have multiple armies, which forces you to deal with the absolutely SHITTY unit AI in this game, as you have to babysit your troops or they all won't fire back.)  Played tons of titan quest too.

My weekend looks like this:
Titan Quest (my 2nd character, a Spirit-Warfare asskicker)
Probably trying out the newly acquired BFME2.
At least one Tb game from the following: Civ4, GC2, Homm5.
(Apparently, I love acronyms.)

Wierdly, I have not fired up my PS2 in weeks, and I have almost a dozen games in that unplayed backlog as well, as well as half dozen unfinished games.

Just picked up a DS Lite yesterday, so I'm going to try and beat New Super Mario and start on M&L:  SSS.  I might also see if I can track down a copy of Summon Night anywhere today.

I'm going to try to finish the last level of Halo.

On Monday Gamefly said they sent Call of Duty 2 and Perfect Dark Zero.  They still haven't arrived.  What's up with that?  They must be using turtles or something.  Anyway if they show up I'll play those.

Between Chromehounds, Summon Night, maybe some Kameo (never finished that), and my recent purchases of God of War, Ratchet: Deadlocked, and Devil May Cry 3 (ah, I love $20 games biggrin ), my weekend will be rather busy game wise.

Influence negated to use of the wrong word.  The gaming gods are most displeased..... :wink:

Well, tonight I'm going to bed early as we're making a road trip to GenCon tomorrow, and Sunday will hopefully be State Fair day (I needs my deep fried Carnie food fix!), so I'm not sure if I'll get much video gaming done this weekend.

Same here, with a dash of Dead Rising thrown in for variety.

I loaded it up briefly last night and it looked pretty impressive. The helicopter ride was cool but the pacing of the opening scenes was a bit weird. Anyway, should be a fun title now that I get to start up with the zombie-killin'.

P.S. I picked up Mario Kart DS yesterday so I might try that too.
P.P.S. But I think a great deal of my weekend will be spent watching The Shield: Season 3 DVD. That show is like crack.

GameCube will see action this weekend, probably Mario Kart, Mario Party, and I intend on sneaking Baiten Kaitos out to give that a try.

The PCs will be seeing action. I pulled out The Guild to brush up on in preparation for The Guild 2.  I missed playing it anyway.. I also plan plenty of Company of Heroes action, and perhaps some BFME2+Clords action on Saturday when we have company over.

Still without my 360, so I'm back to the PC for the time being.

Put me down for Titan Quest, and Flight Sim 2004 (the recent talk prompted me to reinstall it).

Oblivo-crack.   As in crack cocaine.   I'm hopelessly addicted.

Wife and 1 of my kids is out of town.  The other kid is spending the night at the sister-in-laws house tonight.

Lord help me get some sleep tonight.

I'm confident I can finish up Summon Nights tonight, since I have my finals match ahead of me, so that's that on that.

Received the shoddy Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth guide yesterday.  It's a bit disappointing.  Was hoping to have a bit more artwork and such.  But yeah, had to 'collect' it because I'm a nerd like that.  So yeah, going to start up 'hard' mode on Valkyrie Profile Lenneth this weekend.

Perhaps some Dead Rising if I'm in the mood.

And some PSP titles, like DJ Max Portable and perhaps some Tales of Eternia.  My import copy of Every Extend Extra MIGHT come today/tomorrow, but I doubt it.

I hope to get a few more DW5:E achievements out of the way.

Oh, and I hate EA. Farking Bastages borked the AI in Burnout Revenge. I smell a new thread coming.

Oh, I might fire up some PC gaming. I may play more of that demo for Dark Messiah.

Looking forward tot he arrival of Ouendan and Touch Panic on Monday, not to mention Ninety Nine Nights next week.

Working late tonight...probably playing WoW tomorrow night. I've lost a bit of steam on Partners in Time after about 20 hours. Been playing magnetica some more and have managed to get through some more of the quest levels.

Just don't play more than 4 or 5 minutes on the Dark Messiah demo or you might accidentally finish it.
