While in the real world it's felt like it's never going to stop raining, the gaming world has been suffering a drought of epic proportions. While before Christmas there was a metric-ton of big-hitting titles, gamers have been metaphorically parched at the start of 2014.

Yet as the rain abates and the first tulips begin to flower, the gaming world opens the floodgates. This fortnight sees the arrival of South Park: The Stick of Truth, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Thief, and of course Titanfall. It's all set to be a gaming overload, so what are you GDers playing this weekend?

JON - I’m going to be dedicating my entire weekend to those foul-mouthed kids from South Park. I’ve started tucking into the meaty-looking feast that is South Park: The Stick of Truth, with the aim of finishing it up in time for a review on Tuesday morning. I have no idea how long it is, but I’m going to presume that with Obsidian behind the wheel I’m going to look like Gandalf the morning after a big night out. Come Tuesday I’ll expect I’ll be capable of blurting out profanities that would make Geralt blush.

FELIX - Thief: I am going to benchmark the crap out of this. I might play it as well, but really I want to see what sort of PC you are likely to need to get a suitable performance out of this latest stealth em up. We will find out what graphics features are best to turn up to max and which ones you wont miss when you turn them off. Then, if I can be arsed and you guys want me to, I will throw down my review of Thief for the whole world to see.

KATIE - Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2: I’ve had this game a few days now and so far I’ve got fairly significant reservations about some of MercurySteam’s design decisions. However, I love a good bit of over-the-top blood and guts, and it’s a good chance to cater to my inner Goth, so I am giving this game more of a chance to impress me. I should have a review up for this early next week, so if you fancy hearing my thoughts on the game head back in a couple of days!

AUNTARIE - Nothing spectacular here for me this weekend, if anything I'll be getting down to playing some classic Minecraft!

TZZSMK - I'll be playing and reviewing Thief 4!! So far the benchmarks and performance are looking promising...

HEAVENISHELL - I'll be refreshing some of my older gaming memories. I haven't got around to playing games like Road Rash and Need For Speed II SE for a while, so it'll be good to get back to them. Later on in the weekend I'll be trying out Turbo Dismount, which was recently reviewed by Phatchops. I think the game looks interesting - considering its low price. :)

WOLCAN - Hopefully I'll manage to get some free time during the weekend to put some hours in to Battlefield 4. Maybe I'll improve my skills a bit, as right now I'm not even close to the best players. Also I will try out The Elders Scrolls Online beta; hopefully it will be at least a bit enjoyable, I'm not usually into games like The Elder Scrolls.

So it's over to you guys and gals now, what have you got lined up to play this weekend?

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and maybe even a bit of Star Trek Bridge Commander if I feel like blowing up multiple AI controlled, overpowered ships :D

I temporarily gave up on catching up on latest games because 1 game literally takes months to download for me. I still have 4 games in my library I haven't downloaded since Christmas sale especially Deus Ex: HR, I don't even expect to be playing it this year lol unless I get better internet. IT sucks in my country.
