Minecraft XBLA What Are You Playing This Weekend?

This will be my last weekend before E3 stuff starts and my last weekend with secret game. It’s been fun, but it’s time to move on. Thankfully, I’ve had to review Minecraft for Xbox 360 for another site. It’s just as addictive as the PC and mobile versions of the game — just a little tougher to navigate the menus. Of course Diablo III is on my to-do list this weekend. The question of course is demon hunter or monk?!?

How about you? What’s on your weekend playlist?





  • Smartguy

    Be a Demon Hunter. Why? I find more rare crossbows and quivers than any other item.

    Probably reading Blackest Night this weekend between working. It was one of the story arcs that the library did have, so I might as well read some story arcs like that for free. I'm interested enough in reading the story once, but I don't have much interest in owning it. Too bad their selection isn't bigger, but I should be able to stay busy with them for a few weeks or so.

    Other than that I might be online with either Batman AC, MW3, or Halo. Maybe even some Catan.

      Please share your thoughts when you're done! And also, props for supporting libraries.

    Gears of War 3. I just beat the game this week with my wife. (I have a few things to say to Cliffy about the series, btw).

    So, who's up for some 4-player co-op arcade campaign on insane and/or horde mode?!

    No concrete plans this weekend believe it or not. Mw3 halo anniv i may even open portal 2!

    Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer and Star Wars: The Old Republic

    I traded in The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings. I wanted to like it a lot more than I did, but I just think it was a bad port. The controls kinda bite, especially for the casting system. And because of the bad controls the difficulty level even on easy is absurd. I may pick it up later on the PC, but I don't feel like paying full price for a game twice in a couple month period.

  • Sandrock

    More Legend of Dragoon and Minecraft. I wish they would hurry with the updates. I want pistons already!

    I'll also be playing the new Paradise Lost album, which has apparently been out a month already. How did I miss this? (oh, yeah, I'm a parent)

  • Lunias

    Yeah, I'm sticking with Minecraft and the Xbox 360 version of Assassin's Creed. I nearly finished it on my PC, but then it stopped saving due to a DRM issue. Stupid DRM. Stupid Ubisoft.

  • SlickyFats

    Dragon's Dogma. Kinda got addicted to it.

    I honestly don't understand Minecraft. I haven't played it any further than on my phone, but I see it everywhere. But i couldn't figure out how to play

    • Lunias

      If you've got an Xbox, try the demo on that version. They've got a tutorial world set up that teaches you how to play, and it's mostly the same as the PC version. Controls-wise, that is.

      • SlickyFats

        No, I gave my 360 away. Oh well. I'll pull out my Legos

  • lceman

    The Xbox 360 version has a pretty good tutorial, but that's irrelevant to you now, I guess. I downloaded the demo and it does seem like there is a lot to get your head around.

    Still playing Skyrim…..

    I am beginning to feel like the guy in the movie PCU who is forced to watch TV to prove the Cain-Hackman Theory.

    Let's see who gets that fantastic pop culture reference.

    • Smartguy

      LOL

    • SlickyFats

      Pins & Needles!

      • Thundercracker

        I dont give you guys enough credit…I apologize

  • Iceman

    Where is Big Blak? I need to get some trash-talking out of my system. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt: Heat win in six games.

    ;)

      The refs called a technical foul on BB.

      • lceman

        …along with half the players on their team and Rivers. Ha, ha!

    • bsukenyan

      I'm debating between five or six games myself. I want to say five because of how poorly the Celtics were playing, and they just had a tough seven game series against the 76ers to wear them down a little bit. But they are still the Celtics and not to be taken lightly. The Spurs are who I'm worried about, and I don't think enough people have been paying attention to them until they beat the Thunder in game 1.

      • http://rpad.tv raymond padilla

        Disagree about the Spurs. Anyone that has been watching the playoffs knows that they're undefeated thus far and haven't lost since mid-April. They have the best coach in the league. Their core players have a ton of experience playing together. Their fundamentals and execution are fantastic. It will take major athleticism to beat these guys. Certainly the Thunder are capable, but their Q4 execution was poor. It'll be fun to watch if they can keep it together for four quarters to beat the Spurs.

        • bsukenyan

          While I agree with all of those things, that doesn't mean that most people are really giving them much credit until recently. I'm seeing a lot of people online around me just recently becoming aware of the Spurs because they are only paying attention to the Eastern conference. Sure plenty of people do know about the Spurs record for the past month or two, but there are a lot of people just now paying attention to them as well.

          • lceman

            I know nothing of the Spurs. I don't really keep up with the west coast basketball teams as much as I should. All I know is my prediction of a Thunder-Heat finals based on the little I have seen. I'm sure it could be Spurs-Heat, but I really don't care. I'll only watch the western conference playoff games to analyze the opposing teams and mentally match them up with the Heat.

            I hope Spoelstra is doing the same.

            -M

            • http://rpad.tv raymond padilla

              Of course Spoelstra is doing the same. He's Filipino! (I'm not really sure what that means….)

              • lceman

                You know, I was having a conversation with my wife last night on the highlights of the game and she made a comment of what a good coach Spoelstra is, but I argued with her that it wasn't just the coach or the players, but Pat Riley that we should all be thankful for. After all, the man makes it possible to have an amazing team and proper coaching staff to win championships… or at least get to the playoffs consistently.

                Now if only we could have a football and baseball version of Pat Riley, I think I could die happy.

                -M

                • http://rpad.tv raymond padilla

                  You have a baseball coach that praises Castro! What more do you want in Miami?!?

          • http://rpad.tv raymond padilla

            It might be regional. In LA, Lakers and Clippers fans are well aware of the Spurs' prowess.
