WRUP: Pugs of War

We don't know why anyone even tries to reach Level 50 in Gears of War 3's Horde mode with a pug. They're worthless, it's like herding cats. They don't even have thumbs.

What's everyone playing?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@XanderSliwinski): Reached Level 48 in Gears of War 3 Horde mode. Maybe finish those last 2. Still have a few levels left in Tropico 4.
  • Arthur Gies (@Aegies): [...]
  • Ben Gilbert (@BigBossBgilbert): Between bouts of run/prone/run/prone/run/prone/shoot in Battlefield 3's beta, I'll be sinking time into the currently on sale Outland and trying to figure out why people prefer the Kinect control option in Child of Eden (spoilers: I won't figure it out because it's not very fun using the Kinect to play Child of Eden).
  • Christopher Grant (@ChrisGrant): I'm actually splitting my time between the long-since released Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper and the not-yet released Rage, which I think balances out quite nicely. If I'm not playing one of those, I should probably check out Horde and Beast modes in Gears of War 3, eh?
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): The playoffs kick off this weekend (that's sports, you guys) so I'm kinda pumped for that. In my downtime, I'll be playing mostly Gears of War 3 -- eh, who am I kidding? That's all I'm going to play.
  • Griffin McElroy (@griffinmcelroy): [...]
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): I can't break out of this Wizorb habit. I assure you, the developers of Wizorb had nothing to do with that joke.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): I'm going to a strip club for the first time this weekend. I realize that's not a game, but I can't really think about anything else right now.
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): After discovering that the local arcade has a custom-built Mortal Kombat kabinet, I'll be spending the weekend reteaching myself how to play Ermac and Kitana on a fight stick.
  • Justin McElroy (@JustinMcElroy): I'm gonna continue to play Rage, unless Skyrim comes in. I don't think it will, of course, but what if it DOES?
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): [...]
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): I've told myself I need to finish Bastion and LA Noire before I buy Gears of War 3. So wish me luck.
  • Richard Mitchell (@SenseiRAM): After ... 25 hours? 30? I've cleared the initial difficulty hump in Dark Souls and am now truly enjoying myself. Let's see how long that lasts.
  • Steven Wong: Going to see if I can beat the final boss Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes. With the luck I've been having, it should take me all weekend.
