Today in 1954, Canada and the United States agreed to construct the Distant Early Warning Line, a system of radar stations in the far northern Arctic regions of Canada and Alaska. Why did they do this? To protect themselves from the Soviets! This knowledge might come in handy next week, during Soviet Week on Unwinnable. What are you doing this weekend?
Stu Horvath: This weekend is IndieCade East, kind of a GDC 2013 warmup. Gotta keep those conference muscles limber, right? This weekend also marks the likely end of our Risk: Legacy marathon. Four games left until the world gets its name! Hint: it will probably be something that involves my name and a pun of some sort.
Chuck Moran: This weekend I am going to IndieCade in New York with Stu. I will bore him about how much fun I had playing Risk: Legacy with him. I would like to do some co-op gaming on Friday. Far Cry 3, Borderlands 2 and Halo 4. Hold me and love me.
Don Becker: A return to the scene of Unwinnable’s greatest triumph: Boston, Massachusetts. Only this time without Chinese food and death rays.
Matt Marrone: It’s a weekend of Valentine’s surprises. That is all I am at liberty to say.
Ethan Sacks: Heading out to California for the Oz: Great and Powerful junket. More importantly, for my semiannual stop at In-N-Out Burger and Amoeba Records.
Erik Weinbrecht: So apparently a meteor hit Russia. This weekend I’m building a fallout shelter.
Mark Mariano: Chillin’ like a President all three-day weekend long.
Brian Taylor: I am 31 now.
Steve Haske: Work, a trip to see a videogame art exhibit, a crazy Seattle indie show and hanging out with Machkovech and other newly local friends. It’s a shame I’m broke!
Sam Machkovech: Taking Steve Haske on a sexy, sexy date to check out the Smithsonian’s Games-As-Art exhibit and the band Buke & Gase.
Brendan Keogh: Last weekend I decided to give Dark Souls another try after failing miserably at it over a year ago. This weekend I will try to find my way through Blighttown and probably fail miserably.
Mike Rousseau: I’m going to spend the weekend working my night job and thinking about why writers need night jobs. Also, preparing for Revengeance. By that, I mean you should look for me in the newspaper tomorrow next to “White Guy With Sword Bisects Entire City.”
