Today, in 1971, Joe Frazier beat Muhammad Ali at Madison Square Garden in what many call the Fight of the Century. So what do you have on tap for the next 48?
Stu Horvath: My plan had been to split my time between Tomb Raider and SimCity, but Dahlen got me hooked on Knytt Underground. So that’s me for the weekend. It’s good to have something to play on the Vita.
Chuck Moran: This weekend, I don’t know what is going on; there is some weather, there should be some gaming. I will let you know. On a lark I bought Fallout: New Vegas, so we shall see where that takes me.
Ian Gonzales: I’m going to dinner with the folks on Saturday, partaking in some tabletop gaming afterwards and then complaining about Andrea’s obtuse post-apocalyptic world view while watching The Walking Dead on Sunday.
Don Becker: Hacking NHL94 for the Sega Genesis to turn it into a 4-on-4 broomball ROM, then drinking with broomballers, then possibly brunch with broomballers. To think broomball season ended this week…
Garrett Martin: I’m headed to Austin, the absolute least weird city in the whole goddamned country.
Matt Marrone: Just taking things one day at a time.
Ken Lucas: Hanging out with an old friend tonight. Board Game Club tomorrow. Finishing up projects for Geek Flea V and some more Far Cry 3.
Mark Mariano: I’ve got four books that I’m currently doing the layouts for. I’d love to finish them all this weekend.
Steve Haske: I’m going to be buried in audio recordings and probably focusing on a bunch of work that just unexpectedly fell into my lap. In my free time I will probably gaze longingly at Skyfall or Blade Runner or one of the many novels I own and should have read in the past year. Or possibly the outdoors.
Richard Clark: I’m going to the Louisville Arcade Expo.
Sam Machkovech: I’m at 35denton.com!
Brendan Keogh: I’ll be finishing off Max Payne 3 on Saturday, and maybe going to play Johann Sebastian Joust in a park on Sunday like some kind of dirty indie gaming hipster.
Ryan Kuo: Making art and reading poetry…
Mike Rousseau: I decided to pick up Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD. With the way it’s broken up into smaller missions due to it originally being a portable game, it should be called Piece Walker.
Dan Crabtree: If there’s a bright spot at the center of the universe I’ll be on the planet it’s farthest from which is where my SimCity cities are, I think.
