Weekend Discussion

By Xav de Matos, Jan 08, 2011 8:00am PST The snow finally fell hard on Toronto last night. It's a welcome change of pace from the dirty, muddy look the city has been sporting for most of the holiday season. Now, where's my shovel!

Here's what Team Shack will be playing this weekend.

  • Alice O'Connor: I'm hoping to spend the weekend reading or out and about but I'll probably end up playing a dash of Vanquish or Kane & Lynch 2 anyway.
  • Garnett Lee: It's the first round of the NFL playoffs and there are some great games to watch. The rest of the time I'll be finishing Uncharted 2, starting LittleBIGPlanet 2, and probably spending some time in the jungles of Bad Company 2 "Vietnam" online.
  • Brian Leahy: This weekend I'll be playing more WoW and SC2, though I do plan on turning my consoles on again this weekend to check out the Community Playlist in Halo: Reach, Vanquish, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, and more NFS: Hot Pursuit.
  • Xav de Matos: Since I have to get ready for some upcoming travel, I may focus my attention on handhelds for a while. I've packed my iPhone with new games, downloaded new titles for my PSP, and dusted off Chrono Trigger for my NDS. At home, I'll keep my focus on replaying Dead Space, perfecting rounds of Super Street Fighter IV, and tearing it up in Vanquish.
  • Jeff Mattas: [Shoveling sand. There's no snow in California.]
  • Ozzie Mejia: School's started, so I'll be hitting the books...and sneaking in some rounds of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.

  • Just went through Modern Warfare 2 from start to finish today and, yea, it's still my least favorite of the Infinity Ward and Treyarch CoDs. It's a hell of a lot better than Finest Hour and Roads to Victory, but generally the firefights aren't terribly interesting and that storyline is LOLtasticly poorly written hooah teenage military oscar mike fanfic too easy. Medal of Honor 2k10 was such a better single player game, and MW2 doesn't come close to doing justice to Call of Duty 4.

    I'm cautiously optimistic that the next Modern Warfare title will be better with a new dev team behind it, but we'll see how that turns out.
