Aside from occasionally tricky puzzles, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is a great addition to the bottomless LEGO series. Telltale revealed that we'll play Clementine in The Walking Dead Season 2. And in this week's Free-to-Play Friday, Travis talks about Path of Exile, "what Diablo 3 should have been."
What are you playing this weekend?

With FORCED out of the way and my Pokemon X review pretty much done outside of actually writing it up, I'll be diving into Sonic Lost World for the 3DS. I'll also be doing some classic NES gaming for the upcoming Extra Life Charity Event on Saturday where I'm planning on streaming some random NES games throughout the day. Will definitely need some Mt. Dew for that one. Soda Stream just won't cut it.For anyone interested in checking out the stream, I'll be playing from 8 a.m. EST Saturday morning until at least 8 p.m. with the occasional break for food and such. The stream can be seen at either www.twitch.tv/neoscyther or www.neoscyther.com/streaming.html.

Much of the same from the last couple of weekends. I'm still working towards 100 percent on Grand Theft Auto V, but I get pulled away by playing FIFA clubs with friends online. I'm still deep into Pokemon X as well. Maybe another time I'll get back to some games I haven't beaten yet.

Can you dig it ... sucka? Yes, this weekend I will become immortal as I continue to relive history in WWE 2K14. Thirty years of WrestleMania mode is so much better than I was expecting, and it's been so much fun reliving all of these historic matches over the last 30 years of WWE history. This game also has, in my opinion, the best roster ever in a WWE game. Razor Ramon, Hulk Hogan, Diesel, Bret Hart and others are all so much fun to play. I also appreciate how much they bumped up the difficulty of the AI. In previous games, I could play on Legend, the hardest difficulty, and easily beat them. I am only playing on hard in WWE 2K14 and I am getting my roody poo candy [expletive] handed to me on a constant basis. The game does have some problems but it's probably the most fun I've had with a WWE game in a long time. To quote Matt Striker: "It's a mark out moment. I'm markin' out, bro!"

It's a Wii U kind of weekend for me. I'll be trying to wrangle the family together for another go at Wii Party U so I can have a better idea of the game for my review. I'll also be checking out Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures.

I'll be reviewing recently released The Dark Eye: Demonicon from Kalypso Media, while also spending some quality time with Batman: Arkham Origins and Battlefield 4. Lastly, I plan to hunt zombies in recently released Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2.

This weekend I'll be switching from MechWarrior Online over to Battlefield 4 to log some multiplayer hours for my review. Hopefully the servers hold up and that there aren't any major bugs in the multiplayer portion of the game. The fun part is determining what are legitimate bugs and what are issues due to folks trying to run 64-player servers on poor connections or insufficient hardware. My early testing so far seems promising but there are still some odd things, like how med packs seem to have minds of their own when thrown.

If publisher Nordic Games gets me a copy by the weekend, I'll be Temple of Dooming through Deadfall Adventures. It wears its Indiana Jones influence on its sleeve, combining a 1930s aesthetic with Nazis (of course), the walking dead, and an architectural fetish for the Seven Wonders of the World. If Deadfall Adventures doesn't show up, then I'll be strip mining asteroids and shipping trade goods along the space lanes in a newly acquired ORE mining barge in EVE Online. It's, uh, more engaging than it sounds.

I'll be finishing my playthrough of Alien Rage on XBLA for review this week. After that I'll continue to catch 'em all in Pokemon Y and start Batman: Arkham Origins.

I've got Disgaea D2 that's like, "Why aren't you playin' me bro?" And I'm like, "'Cause Disgaea, I got Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn all up on me, dude." Then Batman: Arkham Origins and Pokemon X are both being horribly neglected. At least things are quiet, for now...

If things are going well, I'll have Batman: Arkham Origins off my plate before the weekend. I'm almost to the endgame, but a weekend session isn't out of the question. Then, of course, there's Battlefield 4, which I will be knee deep in as I try to build my character up again. I'm going to try my hand at some flying with the flightstick and throttle setup.
