Now that the G4tv.com crew has had time to decompress from E3 2009, the gang can get back to "normal" video-game schedules. On tap for this weekend is a wide variety of excellent titles, including inFamous, Peggle, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10, a couple of Final Fantasy games, and more. Read on to see what your favorite G4 editors are playing. When you're done, leave a comment and let the G4 community know what you're playing this weekend.

inFamous

Sterling McGarvey: I’m being a good friend and helping a buddy move across town on Saturday, but in between doses of Icy Hot on Saturday night, I’ll be zapping around Empire City with inFamous. I’m a few weeks later to the party than my peers, but E3 wouldn’t schedule itself. I started it Sunday, but after two bleary eyed mornings in the office, I decided to wait until this weekend when my eyes can bleed freely.

When I’m not zapping gangs of mutated criminals, I’ll be driving myself bald playing Trash Panic, the weirdest downloadable game you can buy for five bucks since Noby Noby Boy. It’s a PSN Japanese puzzle game that’s as difficult as it is intriguing, yet I can’t stop playing it. Imagine a physics-driven Tetris, but you have to destroy the puzzle pieces. You can shatter light bulbs by dropping them as fast as possible, but how will you trash a damaged LCD TV? Can you burn the garbage without the carbon footprint dropping your score? To make matters worse, if three undamaged pieces of debris fall out of your trash can, it’s Game Over. It’s a game that seems to enjoy punishing the player, but I can’t stay away.

Final Fantasy XIII

Patrick Klepek: Look, even though I didn't care for Final Fantasy XII, I'm really looking forward to Final Fantasy XIII. As a huge fan of Final Fantasy X -- but not Final Fantasy X-2, dear lord, not Final Fantasy X-2 -- the latest installment looks right up my alley. I managed to sneak a copy of Advent Children, which comes bundled with a demo of Final Fantasy XIII, out of Billy's office, and in addition to taking in the Blu-ray version of Advent Children (I haven't seen it yet), I'll be fumbling through a bunch of Japanese menus and seeing if I should still be looking forward to Final Fantasy XIII. Oh, and a little thing called Ghostbusters. The game's coming just in time to convince me that I probably need to own yet another copy of the movie. But, but, but it's in high-definition!

Peggle Only 99 Cents On iPhone For A Limited Time

Jake Gaskill: I foolishly purchased the iPhone version of Peggle for $1 yesterday, and, as Patrick warned, it has kind of taken hold of me and won't let go. It truly is one of those games that you think you can play for just 10 minutes, but then you look at the clock and two hours have passed. PEGGLE!!! Assuming I’m able to pry my hands off my iPhone, I will most likely get back to my most recent re-play through of Splinter Cell: Double Agent, which I started after Conviction blew me away at E3 last week. I also want to pick up Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10, but I haven’t decided if that’ll be this weekend or sometime in the coming weeks. Although I still haven’t decided if I should get it for Wii for Xbox 360, so I’ll probably just end up debating about it and then falling asleep. Good times.

Wii Punch Out!!

Adnrew Andrew Pfister: My first real “normal” weekend living in Los Angeles is going to feature firmware updates (now that I have working Internet in my apartment), E3 trailer downloads, World of Warcraft patching, more attempts at taking down Great Tiger in Punch-Out!!, continuing my Mass Effect playthrough, and maybe even picking up inFamous…because I’m starting to feel left out. It’s definitely an audio/visual weekend for me.

Prototype Review

Brian Leahy: This weekend I’ll be playing “finish moving into my new apartment,” though I’m sure I’ll find time to play Prototype, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 Wii, and Street Fighter IV. Prototype is very fun, but the combat system is DESPERATELY missing a block button. The dodge roll isn’t cutting it and the ability to block is a staple for a melee-based brawler. What do you think?

Final Fantasy VII

Raymond Padilla: I downloaded Final Fantasy VII off of PSN. When the game came out for the original PlayStation, I thought it was above average at best. A decade later, it's still the most overrated game in the series. So why did I download it? Well, I'm much more into FFVII's world after watching Advent Children and playing Crisis Core. Now that the FFVII universe has been fleshed out, I want to see if the original game will be more enjoyable. At the very least, I'm sure the story will make a helluva lot more sense.

This weekend I'm also giving Virtua Tennis 2009 for Wii a shot. I should be getting Grand Slam Tennis next week, so I wanted to see if Sega's implementation of Wii MotionPlus is better than EA's. Lastly, I'm going to get my fight on in UFC 2009: Undisputed. I've been watching MMA since Royce Gracie dominated the field at the first UFC and have become a big fan of the sport. I'm just bummed that my favorite fighter, Carlos Newton, is no longer with UFC. Not only is he fun to watch in the ring, he's also a total anime nerd (he calls his fighting style Dragon Ball jiu-jitsu), an avid gamers, super smart, and really nice.

Stephen Johnson: I’m playing inFamous this weekend. I’m taking a vacation next week, and I’m going to play inFamous then, too. I’ll probably be playing inFamous in a few months time, and, hopefully next year I’ll be playing inFamous 2: The Heretic.
