WRUP: Twas the week before Christmas...

And all through the 'Stiq, the consoles were humming with no single brick. We've got a lot of games to play before the GOTY talk gets feisty.

What's everyone playing?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@XanderSliwinski): Having finally finished Skyrim I simply don't know what to do with myself. Mortal Kombat? Yeah, sure, Mortal Kombat sounds good.
  • Arthur Gies (@Aegies): I'm about to dip headfirst into SWTOR as the series of sequels to the KOTOR titles that BioWare told me it is. Then, maybe, just maybe, Back to Karkand will work!
  • Ben Gilbert (@BigBossBgilbert): Not a console was stirring, nor even a computer mouse. Then suddenly screens lit up, reflecting faces of joy, as explosions from Wake Island, announced "Battlefield! Ahoy!"
  • Christopher Grant (@ChrisGrant): [...]
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): This weekend will probably be full of Magic 2012 and Assassin's Creed: Revelations. I heard there's also this beta for Gotham City Impostors worth checking out.
  • Griffin McElroy (@griffinmcelroy): [...]
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): I have a lot mo to push in Pushmo, and a lot more war to secretly, yet melodramatically wage in MGS3.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): I'm graduating from university today, so from here on out I'll be playing this little game called Life. You probably haven't heard of it. It's really exclusive.
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): [...]
  • Justin McElroy (@JustinMcElroy): [...]
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): Now that I've collected the three things in Skyward Sword, I can begin collecting ... the three things. I'm also ready to pounce on Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD and scrutinize its beefed-up chickens.
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): I was planning to spend the weekend playing Star Wars: The Old Republic (as a smuggler named Skram on Keller's Void). But that MW3 update is suddenly calling my name...
  • Richard Mitchell (@SenseiRAM): I must play all the things. Zelda and Skyrim mostly, with some Trine 2. Maybe I'll throw in Phantasmagoria as well. Yup.
  • Steven Wong: Playing Star Wars: The Old Republic and mastering the ways of The Force.
