What Are You Playing Thanksgiving Weekend?

This excellent holiday has given many of us a long weekend of gaming. I’m planning to use to finish up some odds and ends in Dragon Age: Origins. I have one achievement to nab and it’ll be a piece of cake…but that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop playing.

I’m hoping my friend from Sony gets off his ass so that we can play some Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 online. His family is local, so he has to see them for Thanksgiving, but he’s coming back for Ignition Shane’s birthday on Sunday, which means he should be able to free up some hours on Saturday or Sunday for MUA2. If not, he’s just a lamer.

Lastly, I picked up Brutal Legend in yesterday’s batch of Amazon Lightning Deals. To my amazement, it arrived today. That’s pretty awesome. I’m looking forward to playing this one. I’m thrilled that Double Fine was able to partner with a strong publisher after its ordeal with Activision. I’m especially thrilled for the hot programmer that worked on the game (hi Anna!).

As always, I want to know what games you plan on conquering this weekend. Anything different or special since you had a few extra days?

  1. More MW2 and L4D2. I have about halve the campaigns beat so far. Once I memorize the layouts of each campaign, I can start trying it on expert/realism.

  2. I am going to beat Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion this weekend! Then, it's going to be Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine and then I'm done with RPGs for this year. GOTY versions are such a great value.


  3. Uncharted 2 is having another 2x money weekend, and it looks like they added at least one brand new map to multiplayer.

    Outside of that, not a whole lot of gaming as the step son is up for the holiday. AC2 finish will have to wait until he leaves on Sunday. Last three chapters will be the death of me.

  4. guitar hero 5 with the whole family, madden 10, hopefully I will finally be able to get to play some Wolfenstein, and the wonderful RTS called "homework"

  5. I spent the majority of my Thanksgiving weekend working at Best Buy selling video games. I did manage to finish off Assassin's Creed 2 and if I get time tomorrow morning I am going to play Fifa 10.

  6. @rbee90 – I think Uncharted 2 made a case for being one of the most entertaining games ever this weekend. The multiplayer had my father-in-law spellbound while it was on (despite the fact that it was Doughnut weekend and everyone looked like they had gained 200 pounds lol), and my 8 yearold step son was messmerized by the Indiana Jones esque story (so much so that he corrected me when I flipped Chole and Elena's names).

    Also, Fat Princess + 8 year old = pure win.
