Gaming for the Weekend – 8/20

by Joey Davidson | August 20, 2011August 20, 2011 10:00 am PDT

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 Aune – Editor in Chief
The price drop by Sony this week of the PlayStation 3 finally made my jumping on that train irresistible.  One 320GB pack with a Move Controller later, I have completed my collection of the current generation of consoles, and upon recommendation of our own Joey Davidson, I also now have a copy of Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction.  Time to fire this baby up and see if I can recapture some of that PlayStation/PlayStation 2 excitement I always felt.  Oh, and some Minecraft, but that’s a given.

Killian Bell – Associate Editor
This weekend I’ll be playing Grand Theft Auto III on the Mac. I completed this game way back in 2002 when I got it on the PlayStation 2, but to this day it’s still one of my favorite games. It hit the Mac App Store earlier this week and I’ve been itching to play it since. I’m not ashamed to say that I’ll be carjacking for most of the weekend.

Mike Perlman – Editor
In my house, we have an FC Twin for oodles of hot NES and SNES action. In addition to our traditional Tetris battles, I think I’m going to attempt Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest. The goal this time is to beat it before the time limit expires for the ending in which Simon Belmont lives. In reality, I probably won’t have the patience for that, so I’ll continue my Tecmo Superbowl season with the Giants. Whatever the case, it will be an NES or SNES adventure, given the fact that we don’t own a console that’s younger than Sega Genesis.

Joey Davidson – Video Games Editor
I’m splitting this weekend between something new and something I haven’t played in several months. I’m reviewing Madden 12 for another publication and have been playing that quite a bit leading up to the embargo date. I’m also setting up a night of Halo: Reach tonight. There’s a gametype I’m dying to try. Here it is in video form.

What are you playing this weekend?
