I can’t believe it’s already here, but the Extra Life marathon, while I’ll attempt to play video games for 25 hours over a weekend, is THIS weekend. I’m not sure who is less ready for this–me or my husband, who will have to take care of two kids pretty much by himself most of the weekend. I still need to plan snacks, a schedule of sorts, and what games I’m going to play.
From the poll, I’m definitely playing the following games:
- Tomb Raider;
- LEGO The Lord of the Rings; and
There’s one vote for Batman: Arkham City and for Dragon’s Dogma, but I’m going to lean more toward Dragon’s Dogma just because I’ve had several people ask me to play outside of SGR back when the game released. And I’m not in the mood to be trapped with some stealth. Yeah, I’m wimping out, but them’s the breaks.
If I need a bit of a distraction, I’m also going to play Saints Row IV, since I really want to finish that game and I’m bummed I just ran out of time with other game releases and, well, my baby son. I think that should be more than enough, and probably more than I can play in 25 hours time.
If I do happen to run out of stuff or I just get sick of what I’m playing, I’m going to check out Telltale’s new episodic game, The Wolf Among Us. Hopefully that won’t scare me as much as The Walking Dead did.
