WRUP: An early harvest

Better question this week: What aren't you playing? The floodgates are open and the year is off to a strong start with almost too much to choose from.

What's everyone playing?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@XanderSliwinski): Must play Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, but I may have accidentally pocketed the copy of SSX that Ben is supposed to review.
  • Ben Gilbert (@RealBenGilbert): Doin' flips and shit in SSX all weekend, with a super fresh review coming on Feb. 28. KEEP IT LOCKED!
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): I'll be going through Alan Wake's American Nightmare during the night hours this weekend. The rest of the time I'll probably be one of the handful of people playing Gears of War 3 online. So close to 100!
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): I'm going to infiltrate a Russian jungle wearing a giant picture of my cat.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): Borderlands, Borderlands, does whatever a Siren can; shoots a bandit, smallish size; catches skags, just like flies -- Lookout! Here come the Borderlands.
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): I am going on a Journey.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): I'm reaping what I've sown.
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): I am strongly considering participating in a game jam this weekend and making my own game. Otherwise, it'll be Kingdoms of Amalur. And not SSX. I hate you, Ben.
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM): I may dip into the hard mode on Asura's Wrath. Beyond that (deep breath): Super Mario 3D Land, Lumines: Electronic Symphony, Nexuiz, Blazblue: Continuum Shift, Skyward Sword. When I'm not doing that, I'll be reading Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
  • Steven Wong: Finishing up the single player for Syndicate this weekend, then aggressively upping my company stock in multiplayer.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav): A little Alan Wake's American Nightmare between constant replays of the Unit 13 demo on my Vita.
