Weekend Warrior – Something Old, Something New
February is a big month for gaming, with huge titles like Anthem, Jump Force, and Far Cry: New Dawn knocking on our doors. Some Game Informer editors are catching up on their backlogs as they ready for the month’s biggest titles, and others are diving right into new games like the stellar Metro Exodus. Let us know in the comments section below what games you’ll be playing this weekend!
Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – This weekend I’ll be starting my journey in Anthem on PC! Other than that, I’m sure I’ll play some more Apex Legends and also keep playing Kingdom Hearts III on PS4… My apologies to all listeners to The Game Informer Show podcast for sharing my opinions on Kingdom Hearts III so far. I’ll keep at it. Have a good weekend!
Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – I’m spending this weekend playing more of Wargroove and, of course, getting some final loot boxes in the Overwatch Lunar New Year event. I need that Reaper skin.
Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – This weekend is pretty low key. I plan on playing a lot of Tetris 99 (we’ll have a full review of that soon!), Crackdown 3 (I like that game a lot more than Jeff Cork), and probably some Kingdom Hearts III. I’ve also got big romantic dinner plans for Sunday and I don’t know… maybe I will sneak a movie in there somewhere.
Nathan Anstadt (@NathanAnstadt) – I might be playing a bit of Dragon Ball FighterZ, because I played some this week, and I had forgotten just how much I like that game. Otherwise I’m going to get my platinum trophy in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and take some time to check out Crackdown 3. Also Final Fantasy Tactics is still there. I should really finish that.
Hunter Wolfe (@Hunter_Wolfe) – Now that I’ve finished my second playthrough of Kingdom Hearts III, I can finally address the placement matches I’ve been neglecting in Overwatch. Does Junkrat still love me as his main? We’ll see! Outside of games, I’ll be doing movie night with my fellow interns Nathan and Jay. I’m going to make them watch Deadpool, which my parents got me for Christmas so I could “bond with the interns.” They also got me Deadpool pajamas, which I will be wearing.
Suriel Vazquez (@SurielVazquez) – Dropping onto King’s Canyon as a Storm and telling Mr. X to “Get Over Here!”
Jay Guisao (@GuisaoJason) – Now that I’ve discovered a love for life’s simplicities, I will be planting and harvesting mounds of vegetation with my girlfriend in Farm Together. When we’re not busy making money and ranking up our land, we’ll be destroying goblins in the Black Desert Online Beta. Of course, I’ll be attempting to collect a ton of SR in Overwatch (if I can chisel out some time for it!). But as for tonight, I’m going to take it easy with my roommates and watch a funny movie or two.
Imran Khan (@imranzomg) – This weekend, I’m going to spend some time trying out Metro Exodus and seeing if I like this one better than the other games. I’ve always respected them, but never really got into any. Maybe this time! I’ve also been enjoying Momodara on Switch, so I expect to play more of that.
