Andrei Dumitrescu: There’s real world football to watch this weekend in the Premier League and there’s virtual football to play in FIFA 13, the game that seems set to dominate my gaming weekend once more with its improved mechanics and its constant unpredictability.
I am deep in the first season of my Liverpool manager career, and I am already thinking about cutting down the length of the half to 4 minutes in order to speed up the process.
But given the way FIFA 13 plays, I need time to see how the competition is playing and how I can break down their defense and get chances to score.
At the same time longer matches make for more interesting stories to share with friends and give me more chances to try out new players and better moves.
When the football, both in real and virtual forms, becomes too much for me, I will also play a little more FTL, trying to get a second victory over the end game boss. Andrei Dobra
: This weekend I’m continuing my cooperative adventures as I’ll continue to play Borderlands 2
alongside my wife and continue my experience with a review copy of the upcoming Worms Revolution.
After finishing Borderlands 2 with the Commando, I’m now going through the game with the Gunzerker and, alongside my spouse’s Assassin, it’s quite a great experience, as she hangs back and kills enemies with her sniper, while I go in guns-blazing while dual-wielding my array of firearms (and usually get killed in the process).
When I won’t explore the harsh environments of Pandora, I’ll be inflicting all sorts of mayhem in Worms Revolution. While it’s been a while since I last played a game in the series, it still manages to retain its classic feel while adding some much-needed enhancements, like impressive physics effects.
I just hope that the local Versus matches between me and my wife won’t result in a divorce anytime soon.
