Weekend Warrior – Some Good Old-Fashioned Rest
It’s finally over! Video games are cool and all, but sometimes you just have to take a break. With another E3 come and gone, it’s time to kick back, relax, and not think about video games. Except for those of us who are still playing video games. What are you all playing? Let us know!
Jeff Cork – E3 is kind of an all-consuming time for gaming, so I’m going to carve out a nice chunk of time for doing literally anything else other than playing video games. Lawns don’t mow themselves, or at least they don’t until I teach my kids how to use the mower. Hey! That’s really boring! Moving on, I am playing something for review, and I’ve been having a good time with it so far. I can’t be specific right now, but take solace in the fact that an upcoming entertainment product is fun. What a time to be alive!
Emma Welch-Murphy (@EmmaMcmurphy) – This weekend we all finally get time off! We all had to come into the office over the passed weekend for E3 and after 12 days of gaming coverage, it’s finally over. I have a lot of freelance writing to get done but sleeping in is what i’m looking forward to most.
Joseph Stanichar (@JosephStanichar) – And that’s E3 in the bag! It was definitely busy, but I was surprised by how… not on fire everything was? Anyway, I have 18 hours at work this weekend, but when not doing that, I think I may give streaming a go! I’m considering playing Resident Evil 4 for the first time! Follow me on Twitter for news on when that starts.
Leo Vader (@leovader) – Gonna try and get adjusted to life in a post-E3 world! I’ll be keeping up with my Red Dead dailies and trying the new Rainbow Six ops. Thanks so much to everyone who tuned into our coverage, it was a super fun week!
Matthew Kato (@MattKato) – I’d like to play the Madden 20 beta, get some games in before it shuts down on Sunday. In the meantime maybe I’ll also finish Observation. I don’t mind it in small doses, maybe it’s because I’m a crap space station robot, and/or maybe I don’t want the gameplay to overstay its welcome. Either way, I’m enjoying it.
Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – I’m so very tired right now. I’m probably going to play Overwatch.
Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – I didn’t attend E3 in person this year, but it’s still a crazy week, even remotely, so I am looking forward to some rest. I am excited to try out Cadence of Hyrule and continue my journey in Days Gone, but otherwise I’ll probably mow the lawn and clean the litter box. You know – fun grown-up stuff that makes you feel alive.
Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – Hey, E3 is done! Wow, that flew by. This weekend I hope to play some board games and hopefully some Cadence of Hyrule. Oh, and catch up on a ton of E3 coverage from other outlets.
Blake Woog (@woog_blake) – I wonder how many games I’m going to say I’ll play over the course of all of these Weekend Warriors that I’ll never get to… I’m probably going to add to that list right now! If I don’t end up painting a deck, I’ll probably try to slog through Cuphead on Switch, and I’m hoping to start learning to speedrun, because I like video games and hate my hands.
