- Garnett Lee: [Who needs weekdays when you've got the weekends?]
- Andrew Yoon: I am trying to rush through Sleeping Dogs so that the Shacknews community can get a review.
- John Keefer: After being eaten by a grue last week and using up one of my many lives, I have crawled back into Mass Effect 2. I have less than 2 weeks to get into Mass Effect 3 so I can get the new Leviathan DLC coming. I really want to know more about the Reapers.
- Alice O'Connor: I intend to dance until the world ends. Should Saturday dawn, by some terrible stroke of misfortune, I'll curl up in a park with wine and books.
- Jeff Mattas: I’m so excited that some new games came out that I don’t know what to do with myself! Okay, that’s a lie. Darksiders II, Sleeping Dogs, and Papo & Yo. Really hoping to check out Dust: An Elysian Tale as well.
- Steve Watts: I'm still digging on Sound Shapes and The Walking Dead, but I'll be treating myself to a new Mario game on Sunday as well.
- Ozzie Mejia: I'll be trying to stop the machine uprising in Team Fortress 2 before picking up New Super Mario Bros. 2 on Sunday."
- Tyler J. Smith: The cel-shaded wasteland of Borderlands beckons me once more, since its sequel unlocks additional content with a saved game. Time to finish some downloadable content! I managed to get through The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned with a max level character, but everything after proved to be more troublesome. Time to absolve myself of that particular sin.
