Weekend Warrior – Pointless Reboot #32832: Go Go Power Rangers!

First, it was Transformers and GI Joe, then they massacred the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and now Hollywood has set their sights on the next kids' show in line, Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. Like all the rest of Tinseltown's big-budget reboots of dated-yet-beloved franchises, Power Rangers is sure to be little more than a cynical cash grab. Still, maybe there's a chance that the film might actually be Morphenomenal.

The GI crew will be busy doing their own things this weekend, mostly trying to wean off of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in an effort to give a chance to Mass Effect: Andromeda. What are you up to this weekend? Let us know in the comments below!

Manon Hume (@ManonHume) – I started rereading the Death Note manga the day before the Netflix trailer came out, so I’m excited to finish that this weekend. I also got sucked back into Sunless Sea by the iPad announcement this week, so between the two of those, I’m ready for a dark, chill weekend – just how I like it.

Dan Tack (@dantack) – Playerunknown's Battlegrounds - Jumping out of planes, picking that perfect sniper position in the pouring rain, dodging the red zones, and trying to be the last one standing.

Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – This weekend, I’m playing Mass Effect: Andromeda, Overwatch, and enjoying the Water Festival event in Pokémon Go.

Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – This weekend I’m going to be playing a lot of Mass Effect: Andromeda for our new Game Club! Lord knows, I’d give an arm and a leg to be spending more time with Zelda instead, but you know… what are you going to do?

Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – I think I might, possibly, maybe, be almost ready to put down Zelda. I’ve put in about 125 hours and have about seven shrines to go before I have completed them all. I don’t have to do all the Koroks, I don’t need to photograph everything, but I do want to see every Shrine. After that, maybe Mass Effect? I’m leaning toward Nier: Automata. It’s going to be tough to move on from Zelda. I don’t know if you know this, but it is a very, very good game.

Zak Wojnar (@ZakWojnar) – Unfortunately, I probably won't be able to play much this weekend, but if I can, I will continue my Yakuza 0 journey. I have about 25 hours logged over the course of the past month-and-a-half, which is simply not enough, especially considering how much I am enjoying the adventures of Kiryu and Goro. But hey, these Game Informer and ScreenRant articles don't write themselves, know what I mean? It's not so bad, though; I've listened to London Calling and Music from Big Pink literally every day this week, and I don't see why that shouldn't continue through the weekend.

Jordan Leendertsen (@Bad_Durandal) – This weekend I’ll begrudgingly finish off Netflix’s Iron Fist. I’ll then probably top off that incredible experience by downing an Old Fashioned while screaming the lyrics to Skid Row’s “18 and Life”, as is tradition in my native land. I’m a few missions away from the end of GTA V, so I might top that off. I’m mostly afraid of what might happen to Michael, he and his wife are such a great couple. There’s also Horizon, which has giant robot dinosaurs. So I guess that’s cool. Even with all of these slick games to play, I know I’m just gonna end up playing more Overwatch, because Overwatch is an eternal pit from which there is no escape. Watch your back Orisa players; Pharah is comin’ for you.
