PlayStation LifeStyle PlayList: April 13th & 14th, 2013 – Avocathrowdown! Edition

April 12, 2013Written by Jason Dunning

We reviewed Guacamelee! earlier this week, with it getting an 8.5, but how many people in the PlayStation LifeStyle staff are playing it this weekend?

Anthony Severino – Shocking Pulse (@Sev_Anthony)

Motherfucking BioShock Infinite. That’s my whole weekend now. This is what happens. I don’t play games because once I get into one, it consumes my entire existence. And that’s exactly what happened now that I cracked the seal on BioShock Infinite. I did so for my review of the PULSE Elite Edition headset, and I’m so glad I did. I am loving this game.

Cameron Teague – King of his Domain (@Cameron_PSLS)

I recently picked up Binary Domain and Spec Ops: The Line, so I think I will try and get some time in on both of those. Neither one seems that great so far though, so who knows. Outside of that, I think plenty of NHL 13 to get a bit of practice in for VGHL Season 7 and then of course some League of Legends here or there. Oh and when I find some extra time, a little more Initial D: Extreme Stage.

Chandler Wood – Playing With his Wand (@FinchStrife)

I finished 100% of the trophy list for Saints Row The Third: The Full Package this week and have now moved on to playing Darksiders II, which is probably what the entire weekend will be spent playing. I may take some time to master more wizardry with Wonderbook: Book of Spells, which is a surprisingly well done, interesting concept overall, and worth the $12 I spent for the book and the game on Amazon. I may also go a little crazy and dig into my way-back backlog to try to finish games that I started years ago but have yet to Platinum.

Dan Oravasaari – Bad Boy (@FoolsJoker)

This weekend I will probably be attending to a family matter that I have been to attending to all week, hence my inability to be around as much. Past that, I hope to finally get around to finishing BioShock (unlikely), as well as taking advantage of the Defiance XP boost that is going on right now. Also, I hope to be shooting and editing the much anticipated return of Bad Gamers.

It’ll be a weekend of some Crysis 3 playing for me, and I’ll probably put some time into Magic 2013 since I bought the expansion pack.

Jesse Meikle – Choices (@Jesse_WM)

This weekend I’ll be spreading my gaming efforts across Disgaea 3: Absence of Dentention, God of War: Ascension, and Guacamelee!. I’m a huge fan of 2D sidescrollers, so I’ve been having a blast playing Guacamelee! conveniently across my Vita and PlayStation 3. I also find that Disgaea 3 seems to become exponentially more fun as you further entrench yourself in it’s deep strategy RPG gameplay. The characters are hilarious and have wonderfully awkward and complex chemistry.

Louis Edwards – Baseballin’ (@ftwrthtx)

With my wife out of town all weekend, I’ll be playing a game I can not mention until next week. I’m sure I’ll also get in some MLB: The Show time since I can’t seem to live without my baseball.

Sebastian Moss – Simple (@SebMoss)

I finally have power so I can finally play BioShock Infinite. And then I’m going to play it again. And again.

Vivas Kaul – Helpful (@VivasKaul)

This is going to be a busy weekend, so I might not get much gaming in aside from Guacamelee! and continuing my 1999 run on BioShock Infinite. So I’ve decided to dispense some advice for the other playlisters this week:

  • Cam, keep on truckin’. Binary Domain’s story gets good. Plus, it’s a short game.
  • Sev, we’ll see how much you like BioShock Infinite after you see the ending.
  • Chandler, Darksiders 2 is a pretty awesome game. Though given the story and the fact that there may not be another for a long time (if ever), it may end bumming you out how it ends.

What are you playing this weekend? Let us know in the comments below.
