Weekend Discussion

By Xav de Matos, Jul 10, 2010 8:00am PDT This week, and for the foreseeable future, I'm wrangling the Shacknews staff (follow us on Twitter) to find out what their weekend will look like. Basically, I want to keep track of them at all times because someone keeps using my coffee mug in the office and I need to find out who, ASAP.

The second part of my master plan is to attach every staff member's Twitter account to their weekly submission. A stroke of genius I learned at my old stomping grounds. The last part of this vast conspiracy is to include myself, as to not arouse suspicion. Foolproof, ladies and gentlemen! Wait. Should I be typing this here?
  • Alice O'Connor: I will be playing Assassin's Creed II in Italian, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 while swearing at the needless cutscenes, hopefully the final version of a game I've been collaborating on and maybe returning to EVE for a little Hulkageddon III: Summer of Gank.

  • Brian Leahy: This weekend I'll be watching Evo 2010, playing the StarCraft II beta, and Persona 3 Portable. I'm sure I'll play a bunch of games on my iPhone, as well. Who knows, maybe I'll try to power through ArmA 2.

  • Garnett Lee: Laughing while hacking through DeathSpank. A little more NCAA Football 11 before knocking out the review and who knows what else. DQ? Deadly Premonition? Singularity?

  • Jeff Mattas: This week I'll be playing some Borderlands and Left 4 Dead 2 online with my dad (thanks Steam sale!), work on my completionist playthrough of Red Dead Redemption, and check out the indie aerial-shooter DogFighter.

  • Xav de Matos: All this talk about Guild Wars 2 has got me itching to get back into the original. Starting fresh with some friends in the Nightfall expansion this weekend. I'll also continue my first run through The Witcher: Enhanced Edition and the first episode of the fan-developed The Silver Lining.
