It's understandable if you didn't buy new video games this week, since a record-breaking number of you are on Amazon spending your lunch money on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One pre-orders. The Gaming Nexus staff will let you know which way they're leaning in this console showdown in an upcoming group article. Regardless, watch your wallet--can't throw a dead cat without hitting a summer video game sale somewhere.
What are you playing this weekend?

I got a tad behind with the Oracle games, but I finished up The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons
and got the password to use in Oracle of Ages
. Hopefully I'll be able to finish that up within the next week. Beyond that, I also finally started Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
so I might play some more of that as well.

I'm reviewing Super Splatters
so that's probably what I'll be playing this weekend. I enjoyed the first one but the sequel feels a lot more polished, and I'm getting a kick out of its sense of humor. I'm also doing a little retro gaming: my annual 100 percent playthough of Metroid Prime
. You know how you reread your favorite book every year? It's kind of like that.

This weekend I'll hopefully have Magrunner
wrapped up so I can finally focus on The Last of Us
and, of course, more MechWarrior Online
. I'll also attempt to make progress on my replay of Half-Life 2
which continues to be as awesome as I remember it.

I'm chronicling my adventures in EVE Online
. The first entry begins with an honest appraisal of my character's cheek bones in the mirror, and ends with a Stockholm syndrome-like appreciation for my faction's coyote-ugly ship designs. If I could only play one video game for the rest of my life, this is the one I'd bring with me to the desert island.
