Grand Theft Auto V debuted in Japan but was edged out by Pokemon X and Y for the chart's top spot. If you skipped out on the (free) Half-Life 2 mod, The Stanley Parable, you can now get it with a fresh coat of paint on Steam (for $14.99). And, for a change of pace, Travis “Thomas the Tank Engine” Huinker reviewed Train Simulator 2014 and it's one of the best in the simulation genre.
What are you playing this weekend?

As I've almost finished Pokemon X (done with the main game for my review, just working on post-game stuff), and I'll be diving into Sonic Lost World for the 3DS review. Outside of that, I've decided to fire up another game on my Steam list I've bought but never played: Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. So far it's not too bad, but I find it puzzling just how many blaster shots one can take to the skull and still be able to fight back. Oh well, who needs blasters when you can just throw your light saber at them?

I have a nice rotation going on with Pokemon Y, Grand Theft Auto V (the hunt for the jetpack continues!), finishing up Lost Planet 3, and more FIFA 14. Boys, let me tell you something: never get sucked into FIFA Online. Creating your own pro and playing in 11v11 matches is insanely fun, but you lose track of time quickly.

I'll be putting the shades and trench coat back on for Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut. If you bought the game and its DLC back in 2011, the director's cut is only $5 on Steam. I loved the game when it came out and I'm eager to see the improvements they've made, at least to the PC version.

Change in plans for this weekend. I'll be playing the usual bits of MechWarrior Online as I try to level up the recently released Phoenix Mechs, but I'll also be spending some time with the Planetary Annihilation beta and an upcoming first-person shooter that I'm playing for review.

I demoed Terraria on XBLA and walked away confident I could build Windsor Castle if I wanted to. Now, six months later, after finally buying Terraria on Steam, I can't even remember how to place a door or put up siding. I've got some relearning to do. In EVE Online, I'm training up cloaking abilities so I can move unseen through hostile space lanes. Rewatching Firefly for the nth time is 100 percent the reason why I'm cultivating a career as a courier and salvager.

Playing the Super Mario 3D World demo got my nostalgia pumps flowing, so I've been hitting my SNES version of Super Mario Bros. 2 pretty hard. I still have no idea how I could beat this thing when I was eight. But more importantly, I've been geeking out all day about getting to review Telltale's first episode of The Wolf Among Us, so once I stop flying off the walls like a wolf cub, I'll get around to that.

I'm currently playing Pokemon Y. I often jump in every other generation and I'm glad I did for this one. Lots of cool improvement and features.

I'll be traveling this weekend as well, so it's more Pokemon X and Valhalla Knights 3 for me. Though I am contemplating taking my Xbox 360 with me so I can play Borderlands 2 some more. Those daily hunts are scratching a lot of itches that I have for new loot. When I get home I'll be diving back in to Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut and some Batman: Arkham Origins.

This weekend is an all superhero weekend for me. First up will be finishing LEGO Marvel Superheroes. So far, the writing has been excellent and the gameplay has been solid. Friday I should see the next game in one of my favorite series, Batman: Arkham Origins. Can't wait for this one as I had fun with it at E3.
