Tasuki commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Well my list of this weekend is as follows

DS --Castelevania: Portait of Ruin-- Just about to wrap up this great game just in time for Halloween. Next up for my Retro Halloween Dungeon of Horrors will be Castlevania Circle of the Moon.

Wii U --Mario Kart 8-- Getting the itch to race around the tracks this weekend so I might fire up this great game again if I get time.

PC --World of Warcraft-- The new preexpansion stuff is out so its time for me to start going after the Iron Horde.

Thats all I can think of now if I remember anything else I will add it later on.

Tasuki commented on Poll: Do You Prefer Linear or Open World Games?:

Doesnt matter to me in all honesty. It depends what I am in the mood for. Some days I like a huge sprawling city to run around in and explore and just have some fun in when I dont feel like playing the main game games like GTA V or Infamous Second Son or even World of Warcraft. But then again when I am strapped for time and just have time to play a game I like linear games like NSMBU or Dust.

Tasuki commented on Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas to Get A New Xbo...:

Honestly I would rather see an updated version of Vice City rather then San Andreas. I can understand the reason behind SA because its the same city as GTA V.

I could never get into SA personally and enjoyed the characters and ciy alot more in VC. I am hoping that GTA 6 will be a return trip to VC since GTA IV had a revamped Liberty City and GTA V had a revamp SA. Its time now for a revamp Vice City.

Tasuki commented on Fox Delays Hitman Movie 'Agent 47' To Avoid Cr...:

Didnt they have a Hitman movie a few years ago or am I missing something?

Anyway I agree I dont see this movie being a big hit in the theaters unless it has some great oscar worthy performance which I dont see happening. I can see it becoming a cult hit though.

Ok well my game time might be be limited this weekend due to work and birthday celebrations. Going to try and tackle the following.

PS4 --Dust: An Elysian Tale — Hopefully I will be wrapping up this great game this weekend at least story wise.

DS — Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin — SInce I will probably be away from home most of the weekend I am looking to sink some time in this.

PC — Heroes of the Storm — Blizzards MOBA has me hooked big time. This is game is great when you need to sneak in some quick game time like I will have to do this weekend.

@DRL: That was one of the reason I am opting for the Wii U version over the 3DS version. I have heard to many horror stories from people with their circle pad breaking from Smash. That and well I want to be able to play with my friends when they come over using my Wavebirds B-)

Well I will be continuing my Retro Halloween Dungeon of Horrors gaming this weekend. I finished Castlevania: Bloodlines last week so now its onto Portrait of Ruin on the DS. Other then that I will also be playing the following.

Xbox 360 — Mortal Kombat — Finally picked this game up during the sale and I am looking forward to seeing what all the hype is.

PS4 — Dust: An Elysian Tale — One of my favorite games from last Gen. Looking to sink in some major time on this one and hopefully I will finish it.

PC — World of Warcraft — Trying to get my 5th level 90 character for an achievement hopefully I will get it this weekend.

That should keep me pretty busy this weekend.

@Emanouel: Lol i hear you there. My problem is that when I see a great deal on a game on Amazon, Gamefly, or even places like Target or Best Buy I usually always buy the game. Then there is the free games I get for XBL Gold and PSN+ once a month. I still have to finish Velocity 2X and Halo Reach not to mention New Super Mario U

Now with Driveclub and Dust coming out next week and me going back to some Retro Halloween goodness it will probably be awhile till I finish those too. I guess at least I have plenty of games to play. B-)

Anyway not that that is over and I said my piece.

This weekend will be the start of my Retro Dungeon of Halloween Horrors a yearly Halloween tradition that some of us started on Nintendolife.

http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/retro/the_haunted_house_of_spooky_and_scary_retro_classics?start=200

Anyway this weekend I will be starting things off with Castlevania Bloodlines on the Genesis. Also plan to play a bit of Zombie Ate My Neighbors on the Wii VC with my son.

@DRL: If you are doing the review for Dracula X then Dave please do a favor and do not call it a port of Rondo of Blood. Alot of people make that mistake but it is not a port of Rondo of Blood. Yes its similar but because NEC didn't want one of their games on another system Konami had to make Dracula X from scratch. Saying that it's a port is like saying that Super Castlevania is a port of Castlevania. Please dont make that mistake like so many others.

Tasuki commented on Destiny's Magic Loot Cave Gets Nerfed:

Now what they should do is remove the items that people got from the cave to even up the playing field. I mean how will that be fair to people who start Destiny now?

Either leave it in or remove it totally but don't just remove the cave and say ok its fair now.

Tasuki commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Alright so after today I have a three day weekend coming up so I am hoping to tackle some games.

3DS — Super Smash Bros (Demo) I was lucky enough to get a code for the unlimited one from someone. Really excited to check this one out since this is my first foray into Smash Bros. I messed around with it a bit during the week but due to work couldn't get too much into it. This weekend I will begin my journey to becoming a Smash Bros pro lol.

PS4 — Velocity 2X — I need to get some more XP to get the next level I am on open so I guess I will be revisiting some older stages.

Xbox 360 --Double Dragon Neon — For some reason I have been in a brawler mood lately and this game is quite good. I just recently beat it but I want to go back and grab some trophies.

Xbox — Gucamelee STCF — Or whatever its called. Going to get back into this since I havent played it for awhile due to being sick and work and all kinds of other stuff getting in the way.

PC --Hearthstone-- I think this weekend I might stop by the tavern for a few hands at Hearthstone been having the itch to play this game again. I still need to finish Naxx.

Isn't that the same day GTA V comes out as well? If it is who's bright idea was it to go against a GTA game on release day?

Well I got to play the lay in bed and run to the bathroom game due to a nasty stomach bug I had. Its was so bad I didnt even open up Destiny yet. I did feel a bit better Sunday night but for some reason I was in a retro NES kick so I played Contra and Chip N Dale's Rescue Rangers.

Tasuki commented on Xbox Parody 'Destiny Fragrance' Campaign in Ad...:

Ok so its ok for MS to tie up exclusives like the next Tomb Raider game but the moment Sony does it to them they get all hurt and resort to this stuff. Very classy MS, very classy.

Maybe if you didn't alienate your MS fans with your original polices you wouldn't have to resort to this?

Ok time for my weekend list

PS4 — Velocity 2X — Really enjoying this game alot probably the best Indie game on the PS4 right after Resogun

Xbox 360 — Guacamelee STCE — My son and I are really enjoy this one alot. Funny thing is if it wasn't for you folks over here at Pure Xbox I would have never tried it. Thanks again guys :)

3DS — Warioland II — Still playing this one mostly at night when I am in bed winding down from the day.

PC — Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft — Well since my WoW sub ended this is the closest thing I have to WoW till payday. Been also having the itch to play it for awhile now.

Tasuki commented on Exclusive: Guess What? Your 100% Save File In ...:

I have to admit I am loving this game and honestly I would have never even tried this game if it wasn't for you all here at Pure Xbox. My son and I are having a complete blast with this game. One of the best things of this games is all the nods the give to various things in the game.

@Gamer83: I know you will but I had to give you a hard time. Heck if I had the money right now I would pick up an Xbox One too. Still maybe not having the money right now might be a good thing and I can score a sweet deal on one this Holiday season.

This weekend I have Saturday off but work Sunday so not too much gaming.
My computer is still dead and now I have hit some financial problems so no new games for me for awhile (Had to cancel my Destiny and Smash Bros preorders) but lucky for me I do have a huge backlog and with the free games from XBL and PSN I should be ok till I can get back on my feet. Anyway enough rambling.

Xbox 360 — Well I picked up Left 4 Dead as part of the Games with gold sale and I have to say I am really enjoying this one even more so then the second one.

PS4 — Probably NBA 2K14 with my son

Wii U — Mario Kart 8 and Dungeon and Dragons Chronicles of Mystara which I picked up for $1.75 (Thank you Deluxe Digital Promotion)

3DS — Warioland II

I am thinking that maybe I can clear out some of my backloggery and then trade those games in to get some newer ones.

Tasuki commented on September's Xbox Games with Gold Confirmed:

@DRL: Monaco is a great game especially with friends over its one of my friends and mine favorite couch multiplayer games.

So glad that its free with gold next month cause now I can have it when they come over to my place.

And smart move making Halo Reach free but I have to wonder whos going to be playing it with Destiny coming out next month.

Tasuki commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Well with the vid card going out on my PC and it being awhile till I can replace it my choices are a bit limited.

So it looks like I will be sticking with the consoles this weekend.

PS4 — NBA 2K14 with my son of course

Wii U — Mario Kart 8 I recently have the itch to try online mode again. Even though I am not the best I do enjoy online mode.
Super Mario 3D World — Finally got a chance to play this great game one of the best Mario games I have played in a long time.

3DS — Warioland II I got this as my Club Nintendo elite prize and I must admit its an addictive game.

So hopefully I wont be sick this weekend although I have to work (figures the one I get off I am in pain in bed for the weekend).

So with Thursday's announcement of the next expansion for World of Warcraft hitting November 13th I reckon there is alot of work I need to do before then so I will be starting on some of that this weekend.

On the PS4 front probably a bit of NBA 2K14 with my son while we wait for Diablo III to hit on Tuesday.

If I get some time I am thinking of tackling Mega Man Unlimited on PC. Which is a fan made Mega Man but it really feels more like a true old school Mega Man game more then a fan game, it's done that well.

@SuperKMx: For my arcade racing fix on the Box you can't go wrong with Project Gotham ;). Nice choice on WWE All Stars btw I love the game it heck of reminds me of the old WWF Arcade games in the early to mid 90's.

@DRL: Here I am just like I said last week man :D. So nice to see what everyone is playing and I have to say your wife seriously rocks, wish my wife did that when I was married lol.

Ok well with that said I will be playing World of Warcraft so close to getting another maxed level character in that game as well as an achievement that I can taste it lol.

On the PS side of things might play a few games of NBA 2K14 with my son, we are both really hooked on that game, I haven't been this hooked on a basketball game since NBA Live 98 on the Playstation, yeah its been awhile.

Also might have a few friends over tonight so that means some couch multiplayer madness with some Mario Kart 8 and NSMBU on the Wii U and some Fist Puncher on the Ouya.

Happy gaming weekend everyone. :)

@DRL Absolutely man. I honestly look forward it every weekend. I know that Nintendolife and Pushsquare runs the article sometimes but you guys have it every week and its great. I like reading what everyone is playing over the weekend. Even if I don't comment elsewhere on the site I make sure to comment there even if I am a day late (sadly I usually work on the weekends).

Well mostly played World of Warcraft on the PC this weekend but I did get together with a buddy Saturday night for a few hours of Left 4 Dead 2. Also managed to get in a few games of NBA2k14 with my son on the PS4 and a few minutes of Mega Man 3 on the 3DS.
