Now Playing: Chronicles of Scrolls Edition

Six of our staff members have fallen into a fitful post-E3 hibernation. Medical staff are on standby. The rest of us can get punch drunk on Zeno Clash 2, or see how Juno has apparently made The Last of Us one of the best games of the year--and perhaps of this console generation. But if you're saving your lunch money for a new console, you might be tackling that mean old backlog instead. 

What are you playing this weekend?

I'll be playing a couple of classics this weekend that allow me to travel through time as well as alter the seasons how I wish--yeah, I'm playing through Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages on the 3DS eShop.  Since I'm reviewing both of these games, I'm playing through Seasons first as I've beaten that several times before (with and without a linked password from Ages), then playing through Ages with the password from the end of Seasons, though as far as I know the "linked ending" is the same regardless of which one you go through first.

Let's see, I'll be playing End of Ten-Year Relationship Simulator 13, then some Moving Out of State. In between, I'll probably play a lot of FIFA 13, and if all goes perfectly, The Last of Us.

This weekend I am going to continue adventuring as my favorite superheroes in Marvel Heroes. I don't care what anyone says, it isn't that bad and has actually been a lot of fun thus far. Hopefully I will also get some time to head out on a few D&D quests with the Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara. All of this depends on whether or not I can resist the urge to spend more time with Mojang's Scrolls, which is a deadly addiction that I am currently nursing.

This weekend will be all about recapping the amazing stuff we saw at E3 this week as well as playing some of The Last of Us and trying to get caught up on sleep and food. The intensely frustrating thing about E3 every year is seeing some amazing games and then having to wait to play them. I'm somewhat tempted to buy some of the Borderlands 2 DLC as I really liked what I saw out of Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep this week and I really need to reacquaint myself with the game and my character.

Tutorials: done. Now, essentially, I'm free to pursue any personal or corporate objective I can think up in EVE Online. Just listening to chatroom chatter, though, tells me there's no money in scavenging for salvage. Still there's something about scanning down hidden sites around solar systems, poking my ship into darkened space ruins, and hitting occasional paydirt that appeals to my inner archaeologist.
