Elder Scrolls Online shows signs of going free-to-play in the near future. 9-1-1 dispatch in West Palm Beach, Florida, now apparently fields technical support calls for PlayStation Network. And the FBI arrested one person allegedly involved in the Lizard Squad DDoS attack on PSN and Xbox Live over Christmas.
What are you playing this weekend?

It's a new year, which means another attempt to whittle down my Steam backlog. I did get myself a late Christmas gift and picked up Tales From the Borderlands, which I hope to check out this weekend. I might also hit up Ultra Street Fighter IV to try and improve my skills with Vega a bit more.

I'll be getting back to Bayonetta 1 and 2 as I work away at my Wii U backlog. I'm also tempted to play through Wolfenstein: The New Order again. To wrap up the weekend, I'll be heading back into The Long Dark, which I picked up during the Steam sale. Nothing beats avoiding the freezing cold outside like freezing to death in a video game.

This weekend I will be staring at both Far Cry 4 and Dragon Age: Inquisition, biting my nails trying to figure out which one I want to get lost in for the day. I may revisit my recent Dark Souls II replay as well; Vendrick has been lurking in the back of my mind for about a week.

Thus continues my five-years-late trek through Dragon Age: Origins. Once I complete Origins and Dragon Age II (it's waiting in the wings), I'll reward myself with a shiny new PlayStation 4 and a copy of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Treat yo self!

I'll be enjoying the classic Suikoden 2 on my Vita. I'm also slowly working on completing Far Cry 4, and I'll be picking up my free copy of D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die on XBox One and trying out the latest game by Swery65.

After putting 20 hours into Dragon Age: Inquisition, I finally finished Act 1 and was in awe by how much more the game opened up. I'll be spending the weekend exploring Skyhold, talking to companions, closing rifts, and digging deeper into a game that seems to never end.
