PlayStation LifeStyle PlayList: March 23rd & 24th, 2013 – Barely Surviving Edition

March 22, 2013Written by Jason Dunning

It would be easy to pick on The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct for not living up to The Walking Dead name that Telltale Games built up with their episodic series, so we’ll go in a different direction and point out that BioShock Infinite is only four days away.

Here’s what everyone is playing this weekend:

Cameron Teague – An Odd Combo (@Cameron_PSLS)

Much of the same for me this weekend as most. Some NHL 13 and League of Legends to be played for sure. However, I got in my copy of Initial D: Extreme Stage, so I plan to put in a fair amount of time into that. I also picked up Labyrinth Legends on the PSN, so I might give that some more time. Oh and Defiance too, but I doubt that will happen because it doesn’t even look that great to begin with.

I’m finally through with Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory and the review is published, so I’m going to be taking a bit of a break (prior to writing up the rest of the trophy guide) and just playing whatever the hell I want to. I have a few PS Plus games that I need to dive more into, such as Vanquish and The Cave. I’ll probably work towards a platinum on a game in my retail copy backlog too as it’s been a few weeks since I got platinum number 72 and I’m really itching for another.

As is normal, the first leg of my weekend is handling production for the Bad Gamers podcast, after that, I will be getting ready for GDC this coming week. If time does permit, I might be able to do a Livestream of the Defiance beta if people want to check that out. Just let me know in the comments below, and I will get one figured out.

Jason Dunning – Nunly (@Jasonad21)

I’m about 25% of the way through Nun Attack right now (expect a review next week), and once I’m done that, I’ll finally be sitting down with God of War: Ascension to see what Sony Santa Monica has in store this time around.

Jesse Meikle – Amazonian (@Jesse_WM)

EB Games (Canadian GameStop equivalent) sold out of God of War: Ascension collector’s editions for pre-order, so I pre-ordered via Amazon, and Kratos’ prequel epic finally shipped to my address yesterday. I’m planning on having a ‘God of War Weekend’ by jumping into Ascension and playing as Zeus in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. I’ll be a very happy man, if I can break theme and squeeze in some Spec Ops: The Line as well.

Louis Edwards – Has Some Killer AB’s (@ftwrthtx)

This weekend will have me getting ready for GDC next week, but I know I’ll get in some MLB 13 game time and play some Dead or Alive 5 Plus on my Vita (review incoming). The Blue Jays finally called me up to the show in MLB 13, but now I have to work my way around Jose Bautista’s spot in the line-up and start getting more AB’s.

Sebastian Moss – Nostalgiac (@SebMoss)

I saw some people skipping with a rope and I realized I haven’t skipped in years, so I’m going to try that.

Vivas Kaul – Not as Nunly (@VivasKaul)

I think I might play some Plague Inc. and Nun Attack on my iPad, in addition to some DmC and Dead Space 3. Also, I might dive into some PC games like Kentucky Route Zero. Other than that it’ll be a very relaxed weekend.

Which games will you be playing this weekend? Let us know in the comments below.
