TGIF: Gaming Trend’s Weekend Lineup

You’re exhausted, your eyes are strained, you’ve eaten way too much junk food and drank way too much caffeine. Your brain is bogged down with the overwhelming amount of gaming news it just had to process, but it was all worth it. E3 just wrapped up on Thursday and all the rumors and speculation can be thrown to the wayside. The games have been announced and the future is looking bright. The only issue is that this future is 2015 and beyond. Despite all the great games that were shown at E3 2014, only a handful of noteworthy titles are being released this year. This means that gamers have more time to delve into their existing backlogs before new games come out. Here’s what the GT staffers are playing:

I’ve been sick for the past few days and pretty much slept through half of E3. No games were played, so I plan on making up for lost time this weekend. I’ve been thinking about playing through a bunch of last gen HD remakes of last, last gen? games like the Jak and Daxter collection, the Metal Gear Solid collection and the Prince of Persia collection. I didn’t get to play those games two generations ago, so I’ll play those to be consistent with the whole “lost time” theme I’ve got going on.

I’m just hanging out with some of my GT friends before my flight takes me back home. This weekend will be likely filled with adventure and peril as I hang out in Highland Park.  I do have some Transistor to play, as well as some Broken Age. I have Godus around too – and a mountain of E3 stuff to go through.

After this fantastic week at E3 the only thing I can see myself playing between bouts of writing is Dragon Age. Since its release five years ago I’ve wound up stacking campaigns on both the Xbox 360 and the PC, partly thanks to Steam deals but primarily due to curiosity since the releases were so vastly different. Now, in order to see the ultimate fates of my Grey Warden Commanders and Hawks, I have pre-orders for Dragon Age 3 awaiting me for both platforms and still a bit of Dragon Age 2 to finish with certain characters. But now having seen a bit of what they and the Inquisitor have in store for them, I want all hands on deck.
