Top o’ the mornin’ to ya, Game Informer readers! St. Patrick’s Day is upon us and while some of us will join in the revelry, it’s also a good weekend to avoid the chaos by playing some games. Of course, you can always bring some portable game to the festivities and have the best of both worlds! Hope you all have a safe weekend, and that’s the bottom line, ‘cause Stone Cold said so. (Also, happy 3:16 day!)
Brian Shea (@BrianPShea)– I’m traveling to GDC this weekend, but not before I play a bit more Yakuza Kiwami and Overwatch. Once I pack my bags and hop on the plane, my gaming will be confined to portable experiences, so likely Pokémon Go, Pokémon Omega Ruby, and maybe some Mario Odyssey or the Breath of the Wild DLC.
Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – Oh man, this weekend I’d love to sit back and catch up on some games like Ghost of a Tale on Steam but I’m travelling up to Duluth, Minnesota to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. It should be a good time, and maybe I can find a nook to go play Puyo Puyo Tetris on my Switch or something. Have a good weekend!
Leo Vader (@leovader) – Last night, I discovered a simple but satisfying competitive card game called Punch On in the Tabletop Simulator workshop! It’s in the prototyping phase but is already very fun and playable, and I look forward to getting some friends together to play more of it. I will also be sitting in solitude thinking about how I lost my Silent Assassin rating in the last 30 seconds of the latest Hitman Elusive Target and lashing myself for my misdeeds. I only need one more Silent Assassin for the final costume unlock!! It’s been eluding me for months!!!!! Help me Jon!!!!
Suriel Vazquez (@SurielVazquez) – I’ll be diving into a bunch of random stuff this weekend! My friends have gotten into Vermintide II, so I’ll be playing that. I’m also super-curious about both #Wargames and The Silver Case: 25th Ward, so I’ll probably peck away at both of those. I’ve also been entrusted to teach Javy Dota 2, so maybe we’ll party up and get started on that this weekend.
Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – I played and enjoyed Bloodborne back in 2016, but never saw it to the end. Last night, I randomly decided to jump back into that old save file, and was surprisingly able to find my footing again (thanks to Imran!). I plan on playing more of that, but I also want to take my kid to go see Early Man. I’ve got my fingers crossed it is still in theatres. I suppose I could just go and check instead of writing this up, but that sounds like a lot of effort.
Jon Bowman (@MrGameAndWrite) – I won’t have too much time to game this weekend since I’ll be heading to Chicago to celebrate St. Patty’s with my college buddies. I’m already lamenting my decision to drive rather than take a train and replaying Night in the Woods on my Switch, and I’m sure I’ll lament it even more on the drive back. I still plan on taking my Switch, but I refuse to take it anywhere other than the apartment I’m staying at to avoid leaving it behind somewhere and trying to piece together the night before to track it down, which sounds like a great idea for a screenplay, but a terrible nightmare in reality.
Robbie Key (@RobbieKeyV) – After managing to smoke Bill Williamson out of Fort Mercer, John Marston and I are travelling to Nuevo Paraiso, Mexico, to take ’em out in Red Dead Redemption. I have no problem saying I’m enjoying RDR far more than I have with any GTA game, and I’m even more excited for the sequel that made Call of Duty break its traditional early November release. Other than that, I’m going to kick off my first time playing Superhot for a written and video review for my blog, a Halo 2 playthrough on legendary difficulty with my cousin, and maybe make some kind of delish dish.
Joey Thurmond (@DrJoeystein) – After leaving destruction in my wake throughout Crete and Atlantis, I'll be continuing my adventures throughout the God of War series with Ghost of Sparta. It's significantly better than Chains of Olympus so far with a great hook! I'll also be getting around to trying Warhammmer: End Times - Vermintide with a group of friends with some Call of Duty: WWII peppered in here and there. I've got a load of writing to do over the weekend as well, which I'm excited to dig into!
