GameStop stops taking your PlayStation 2 as a trade-in next month, EVE Online shared its tenth birthday with Orson Welles, and EA just announced The Sims 4 for 2014. By the way, if you were to buy The Sims 3 plus all of its expansions right now, it would cost you $539.78.
What are you playing this weekend?

I'll be spending more time with Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move
. So far I'm kind of liking it as it doesn't control like the past games. In fact, it's kind of like Pipe Dream
, of all things. It's a different way to play the series and requires a different strategy than the past games.

Now that my semester is over and I have a lot more free time outside of work, I'll be kicking Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
into high gear. I've been going back to Tomb Raider
to try and knock that off the list (47 percent complete) so it can go on the completed stack. Outside of that, I might indulge in some World of Tanks
while testing out a couple new mice and a headset.

I’ll be putting in some more practice with Injustice: Gods Among Us
. I started playing Hawkgirl who is now my anti-Solomon Grundy, Deathstroke and Aquaman spam weapon, and I have Green Arrow and Harley Quinn as my backups. I’ll probably be playing some more Zombie Tycoon 2
, which is a really fun real-time strategy for consoles. I have never been a fan of RTS because, for me, it’s usually clicking a bunch of boxes that fill your screen and I have no idea what is going on. Zombie Tycoon 2
simplifies all that, and what you have is a very fun and addicting game. Finally, I am about two years late to the party but I actually picked up and started playing Dragon Age 2
which I really enjoy. Now, I never played the first game. Why does everyone hate Dragon Age 2
again? Doesn't seem like anything is wrong with it to me.

I'll be spending some relaxing time on Far Cry 3
’s Rook Island, stabbing dudes, getting inked, and popping hallucinogenic substances. Other items on my to-do list include more Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
, and spending some quality time with System Shock 2

I'm in full-on review mode for Zeno Clash II
, so I'll be exploring the world of Zenozoik for the most part. I'm also wrapping up my reviews for all the cool tech Nyko released for the Wii U, so I'll be revisiting my modest Wii U library for some final testing.

Along with Mike, you can make that two for Metro: Last Light
. I love this franchise so much. And Mike, the second one is just as lovely. I have a preview build on the debug Xbox 360 with the first couple of hours of the game on it. You're in for a treat.

I plan to spend some quality time with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
and hopefully set some time aside for playing the recently-released Neverwinter

Another week a bunch more MechWarrior Online
to play. I've gone whole hog with a long-range missile boat build and I'm working on tweaking it so that I can safely deliver the "rain of pain" from a distance without taking any direct fire.

One of two things is about to happen. Either 1) I square away my EVE Online
account and start turning Gaming Nexus into gameEVE nexONLINEus as far as coverage is concerned--John loves this idea
--or 2) I flip through my recent shopping spree of Xbox Indie Games and start bashing them into my face one at a time: Snops Attack! Zombie Defense
, Kodu Game Lab
, radiangames Fluid
, and Quiet, Please!
I somehow managed to avoid the top 20 most downloaded, all of which have the word "miner" in the title.

I'll be playing Metro: Last Light
. Metro 2033
is one of my favorite shooters of this generation, so I can't wait to dig into 4A's sequel, especially since they have creative license to deviate from the book's story now. Other than that, I'll be putting more time into Injustice: Gods Among Us
and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
