FIFA 16 will feature a woman on its cover for the first time in the series' 22-year history. A new NASA-funded study lays out plans to return humans to the moon in 2021. And the most sexist male gamers are usually also the least skilled.
What are you playing this weekend?

I've been playing a rather unhealthy amount of Rocket League, but I plan on jumping back into The Witcher 3 at some point, as I have neglected the game far too much lately. We'll see what wins out for "most played" because both games are insanely fun.

I've heard conflicting things about Batman: Arkham Origins, and considering I'm wrapping up Arkham City again, I decided to take the plunge. Here's the funny thing though—the Arkham Origins Complete Edition only came out in Europe, so I was forced to buy the U.K. version from Amazon U.K. I'm crossing my fingers that the DLC vouchers will work on my NTCS-region PS3. If not, I will be quite cross, I say!

I'm finally getting around to playing Super Mario Galaxy. I don't know how I missed it; not only is it Mario, but it's one of the highest-rated games of all time. I'm looking forward to being able to sink enough time into it to really get invested this weekend. I will also be cracking into Master Quest for Ocarina of Time 3D. I've played the regular version more times than I can count, and it'll be good to have a few curve balls thrown my way.

Hadouken! This weekend is going to be focused solely on the Street Fighter V beta test for me. There are only a few days to play, and I intend on making the most out of it and fully exploring the game and all six available characters.

I think I'm about to wrap up The Witcher 3, so I'll be digging into The Red Solstice a bit to see what that game is all about. After that I think a bunch of Rocket League is on the docket and maybe a return to MechWarrior Online as well.

For couch co-op with my five-year-old, I got LEGO Star Wars III (upon her recommendation). She's having a blast, but each level's objectives are weirdly obscure. I spend most of the time running in circles, guessing at what to do next. Daddy needs some Witcher 3 time, though, so once the kiddo is tucked in for the night, I'm making the rounds through the Northern Realms.
