What are you playing: Carmageddon

Los Angeles traffic is about 1000x worse than ever, due to the destruction and subsequent rebuilding of a freeway bridge in the city. The locals, and the news, call it Carmageddon, which sounds like an awesome name for a video game. Waitaminute.

So, looks like I'm staying in this weekend. That's cool. Games need to be played. What are you playing and/or up to this weekend?

  • Garnett Lee: I played a number of things PixelJunk but I’m also enjoying Gion Matsuri in Kyoto over the weekend.

  • Xav de Matos: Half way through Dead Space 2, so I might finish that. I've also picked Black Ops multiplayer up again for a future write-up and, due to Jeff Cannata and Dan Trachtenberg convincing me on the latest Weekend Confirmed, I'm trying my hand at Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012.

  • Andrew Yoon: [Vacationing]

  • Alice O'Connor: I desperately need to spend this weekend asleep but there's pubs, parks, pals, Brink, Guild Wars, Saints Row 2, Natural Selection 2, and, I'm pretty, sure death.

  • Jeff Mattas: There’s going to be a lot of XBLA time this weekend, with Kill Team and Ms. Splosion man topping the list. BOOM!

  • Steve Watts: I might mess around a bit with NCAA 12 (I'm a newbie when it comes to college football), and I've decided to plunge ahead with replaying Final Fantasy 3/6. It's still fantastic.

  • Ozzie Mejia: Getting into Runespell: Overture and continuing the never-ending task of clearing out the XBLA backlog.
