We here at TechnoBuffalo are lovers of all things gadget, gizmo and tech. Video games are a part of that world. As a way to share a little bit more about our editors and their weekend habits, we’ve decided to run a weekly feature every Saturday that dives into what some of the staff are playing.
Whether it’s Angry Birds or Bad Company 2, you’re likely to find a wide variety of titles and preferences here every time you read. Enjoy
Sean P. Aune – Editor-in-Chief
While I would love to say I’m going to be sitting down with a pile of 3DS games … I’m not. I’m hoping to finally get some serious time in with Arkham Asylum, and when I’m not doing that, I’ll probably be finishing up Angry Birds Rio. Oh, who am I kidding, it’ll probably be mostly Rio.

I’m not sure if I have time this weekend, but I’ma definitely squeeze in some Starcraft 2‘ing! Missed out a lot of play time recently and I feel super deprived. I’ve actually started playing Day of Defeat again – source unfortunately (the original isn’t supported on Mac OS). After entering in RTS gaming mode, I kinda forgot how awesome FPS’s were – correction.. are!

This weekend will largely consist of constructing massive buildings in Minecraft only to destroy them with excessive amounts of TNT. But when I’m not demolishing fictitious monuments, I’ll be starting my run through both installments of the Mass Effect series. I’ve never played them, but with Mass Effect 3 on the horizon, I figured it would be a good idea to get acclimated to the universe.
Joey Davidson – Video Games Editor
I’m set to explode this weekend. I’m working 3DS coverage for another publication and am currently staring at a stack of eight launch titles for the system that need reviewing. Talk about intimidating. I’m also playing the heck out of Swarm, and XBLA and PSN title from Hothead games. It’s incredible. I’ve included a gameplay video from the studio for proof.
Finally, a lot like Jack, I too am playing through Mass Effect 2. However, this is my third go around and I’m hoping to finish the story in time for the new DLC set for next week. That’s probably not happening, but a man can dream.
What are you playing for the weekend?
