It's!!!... The Weekend Playlist.. encouraging your gaming hobby since 1961, the year in which many courageous souls known as the Freedom Riders made strides forward for the civil rights movement when they ventured into the American south in a bus. In May 1961, so as to test a recent decision by the Supreme Court allowing for de-segregated bus transportation, a group of blacks and whites took a bus headed to New Orleans thru Alabama. On several stops in Alabama, the Riders where assaulted, specifically in Anniston AL on May 14th, 1961, where their bus had its tires slashed by an angry white mob and firebombed. The mob then tried to have the Riders burn to death inside the bus, but they escaped, only to be severely beaten by the mob. After this terrible episode, the Riders where even refused medical treatment by local hospitals. All this occurred, by the way, with local police authorities cooperating with violent white angry mobs coordinated by the Ku Klux Klan. These days we think of this savagery as unbelievable, but such was the stranglehold of racism in the American South at that time. The Riders were eventually able to reach their New Orleans destination, after getting worldwide coverage, and their impact was felt on the civil rights movement ever since.

So.. changing gears.. what will be your gaming pleasure? It'll be another working weekend for me, so what little gaming time will go to city-building in Anno 2070 and pwning a few noobs on League Of Legends. How about you?

This weekend is wide open, as the gf is working 9-9 today and tomorrow at her new job, and 12-6 on Sunday.

I've been enjoying Dirt 2 on a break from Grid, and I have the newest Tiger Woods as well.  

On the iOS front, I have over a dozen games of Hero Academy and a couple games of Nightfall up and running.

Skyrim - having too much fun with my Khajiit Archer/Thief


maybe some Football Manager 2012 - guided Aston Villa to the EPL title and Barcelona has come calling for my services but I don't think I'll take it.  Took me a very long time to build the Villains into a competitive team

BF3 360 - MAYBE. That patch is pretty shitty all around. Depends on if my group feels up to playing anymore.
MW3 360 - Not really feeling this anymore as of late. Can't seem to return to the zone while playing.

Picked up Xenoblade today with the art book but probably wont fire it up for a while yet. Actually have huge urge to play through Zelda Wind Waker again after hearing some of the music on Youtube recently.

Playing the only game I have right now:  MLB 12: The Show.

I'm still going through tons of reviews to find out what are the PS3 must-haves I've missed over the last several years...

unsure.  maybe a mix of rayman origins on the 360.  picked it up a while back when it hit $20 and I kept on seeing ads and videos for it, so it kind of pushed its way into my consciousness. 

I have to decide if I want to bother with ssx.  unlike the epic fun times I had with all three of the ps2 games, I just can't seem to shake the frustration levels with this one.  too many gotcha moments in the tracks.  I feel like I spend more time looking for pitfalls than epic places to shred,  plus the loot mechanic is pretty shallow in the payoff department.

Played a few hours of 'Anno 2070' and some 'League Of Legends'. Mission accomplished. It was a decent gaming weekend.

I was completely off base.  I played some Borderlands and set up the hockey tournament and that was about it.

Shinra Mansion in Final Fantasy 7...'Lost Number' was not as tough as i remember

Played about with Kinect that i got a few weeks back,not overly impressed yet,didn't mind the demos of Gunstringer and the golf on kinect sports 2,and Kinect Adventures was better than i was expecting but not something i want to play for hours on end,usually half hour here and there is the best...and not just because i get knackered easily Tongue

Haunt Demo was ..eugh....don't want to step up and down(and have to do over exaggerated steps) on the spot to move forwards
