WRUP: The Shepard of Dawnguard


We imagine a significant number of folks will revisit Skyrim (if they ever left) this weekend to explore the Dawnguard expansion pack. If not that, perhaps they'll be checking out BioWare's fuller conclusion to Mass Effect 3. If neither of those are on the docket, there's still plenty to play. We laugh through our tears of joy at the idea of a summer lull.

What's everyone playing this weekend?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@XanderSliwinski): I'm going to give Pokemon Conquest a spin. I have absolutely no idea what to expect. I also have a bunch of German board games on my iPhone: Scotland Yard, Ticket to Ride and The Amazing Labyrinth. You remind me of the babe.
  • Ben Gilbert (@RealBenGilbert): I'm sure to be done with Dawnguard by the time this goes up, but I'll probably still be murdering mortals this weekend regardless. The sun is for LOSERS.
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): I'll need to find an oversized novelty coin to flip this weekend, because I don't know if I'll play Mass Effect 3 or Dawnguard. Decisions, decisions!
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): My review copy of Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is on its way, and I'm hoping to lead some chibi amnesiacs through a musical nostalgia tour that they won't appreciate on account of the amnesia.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): Can I say "crossword puzzles?" Are those still cool? What if I say I'm doing them in pen?
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): I'm moving this weekend, so all my games will be in boxes. So, probably quick rounds of SimCity Social between heat strokes.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): I really need to catch up on some DLC in-between all the usual TLC, so I'll roll through Mass Effect 3's Extended Cut and Harley Quinn's Revenge in Batman: Arkham City.
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): This weekend, I'm headed to New York City to perform in UCB's Del Close Marathon. I'll be bringing my DS and my iPad, and playing Golden Sun: Dark Dawn and Squids Wild West.
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek): I'll be kicking off NCAA 13 this weekend!
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM): Penny Arcade 3 is just wonderful, so plenty of that. Also, Hero Academy, Quantum Conundrum, Hero Academy, Mass Effect 3 and maybe some Hero Academy.
  • Steven Wong: I will see if the Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut will fill the overwhelming emptiness I've been feeling since I first finished the game.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav): Thinking about running through the Splinter Cell HD Trilogy, looking to go complete stealth. Follow my Twitch account to watch me play it!
