This is what is on my gaming agenda:

*Finish up a co-op play through of Halo 3 with the wife.  We are starting on the second to last chapter.  Which also happens to be my least favorite chapter in the game.

*Get the "Road Dog" achievement in Rock Band 2.  This is the one where you have to play a set in each tour mode venue.  I have spent 3 weeks on this.  3 weeks for 30 gamer points doesn't seem right.  But I refuse to give up now.

*Make some progress in Dead Space.  I rented this last week and have only gotten through the first chapter so far.  But I am enjoying it enough to continue

*Mess around with the skirmish mode in the Halo Wars demo.


So what are your gaming plans for this weekend?

Planning on finishing up Lost Odyssey.  That'll come out to about 35-40 hours spent on it in the last month.  That's probably the most concentrated time I've put into a game in years.

Tonight I should be able to finish up customizing my arcade stick, so I'm expecting a lot of Street Fighter HD Remix to test it out.

Other than that I expect I'll end up playing a good amount of CoD5 and try the latest patch for Sins of a Solar Empire: Entrenchment.

My girlfriend and I recently beat Gears of War on co-op, so we're playing through GoW2 at the moment.  This weekend, however, we will mainly be playing the multiplayer stuff with bots.  We're having a blast with it!

Just got COD4 so hopefully I will get to play this online.

Maybe one can convince some COD5 players to make one exception slywink.
Also hoping to do that Saints Row co-op and try out Viva Pinata, GUN and Moto GP06 which I bought
during the week.

I'm going to give Gears of War 2 a shot. I got it in a trade a week ago and haven't had a chance to put some time into it.

Ton of DS games I'm working on as well - Dragon Quest IV, Trauma Center, Picross, and New Super Mario Bros.

Same here. I bought it recently (a bargain at $10) after reading the big thread on it here. Definitely seems cool. I'll be trying to advance in that a bit.

Also I'll be continuing to try and hone my Company of Heroes skirmish skills.

I will also mess with Burnout Paradise, to try out the new patch.

Defense Grid is getting regular play, and I should wrap up the "story" mode this weekend.

First, I'll be playing the game "If we don't clean up the clutter in this house, there will be no video gaming!"

The next game will be "I'm not awake yet, I'll just game for a little while and clean the house later."

In other words, I'll be gaming all weekend...  Roll Eyes

And some of you won't believe this but I might be replaying Morrowind (360/ BC)... I should never have located the game and then turned on the console with it in it, apparently the several years that have passed, has not killed it for me.  Just one more time, maybe.  Roll Eyes

trying to get into Resident Evil 4...hasn't quite clicked yet, but i can see the potential so i'm willing to put in some more time.  other than that, i may hit up Fallout 3 for a little bit.  i'm almost finished with the main quest and only have a couple side quests to tie up, then i can put that beast to rest for a while.

Killzone 1:
Near the end I believe. Should be able to complete that.

Beyond Good & Evil:
Progress a little hopefully. Heading to the factory now. Game doesn't quite click with me yet, but I will attempt to finish it with everyone else.

The Witcher EE:
Just started Chapter 4. Been fun so far, foresee more to come.

STALKER - Oblivion Lost 2.2:
Been messing around with this lately. Progress a little more in it probably.

Unfortunately I doubt I'll get much, if any console gaming time.

Tonight was my usual 4 1/2 hour pool marathon with Moliere, and we're probably going to play again at his place on Sunday.  That'll most likely be the extent of my "gaming" for the weekend.  Plus, the more use I get out of my new cue the better received it'll be by the wife.

Well, I pretty much did what I said what I was going to do - except I actually put in some "guilt time" cleaning the kitchen today. Then I played Morrowind for several hours, like I knew I would, lol. If the game doesn't totally crash and burn on me, I guess this is my game to play between Persona 3 (finished) and Persona 4 (not started yet).

Maybe I'll even go back to my Khajiit avatar until I'm done with this playthrough of M'wind... if I can find it...  Roll Eyes

Tracked down a cheap copy of Tenchu Z and gave it a shot.  I know it got hammered in reviews, but I've actually been having quite a bit of fun with it.  It reminds me a lot of the first game in the series - both for better and worse.  The AI is still dumb as a stump and the graphics are so-so, but sneaking around ninja style is still pretty fun.  I doubt I'll keep it past the 7 day return period, but it fit the bill nicely this weekend.

I'm also still plugging away at FF Tactics A2 (86 hours, 230 missions complete).  I'm sure I could probably beat the game at this point (my main party are all around level 65), but I'd like to get to at least the 250 mission mark.  I'm debating firing up my Witcher save as well.  For some reason, the bottom simply dropped out of that game with me around the time I started Chapter 4.  I've taken a break from it for a few weeks, and maybe that'll get me reenergized to keep going.

We did finish the campaign on heroic but didn't get the achievemet because the game says we didnt finish chapter 7.  That was probably because we didnt finish that chapter in one sitting.  We plan on going back this week and replaying chapter 7 from start to finish.

I did play 3 or 4 skirmish games against the AI.  I've played enough of the demo to say that I will be buying this game the day it is released.

Plan was to get the Burnout Paradise patch/update and play that since I haven't really touched it since release.

Reality was after 3 races I was bored of it and put in Midnight Club: LA and did the most console gaming I've done in a couple months.

Achieved. Played a LOT of CoH, both sp skirmish and co-op with friends. I am starting to branch out in the game, trying to learn the German side, and plan to soon start getting into real, vs human skirmishes. I completed the first German mission in their Market Garden campaign in Opposing Fronts.

Never touched it. It has kind of lost some of it's luster after reading that you can beat the entire game with only one or two tower types.

I took another shot at the finale and failed again. It's hard to plan for that final map.
