Every week, just at the start of the weekend, we catch up with the WoW Insider staff and ask them, "What are you playing this week?" -- otherwise known as: WRUP. Join us to see what we're up to in and out of game, and catch us in the comments to let us know what you're playing, too! This past...

Boys and girls, today's edition of What Are You Playing is brought to you by the number 4. Can you count to 4? Sure, I knew you could. What special things can we learn about the number 4 today. Let's see. 4, as in the number of players allowed in Halo 3's online co-op. 4, as in the number of cases o...

Well folks, here we are writing up the first WRUP of September 2007. In a mere eighteen days, Halo 3 will be gracing our Xbox 360 disc trays, where it will likely stay for the foreseeable future. That means we have just shy of three weeks to finish up all those other Xbox 360 games that are sitting...

With so many games coming out this week, and a handful of demos too, 360 gamers have a lot from which to choose. The choice for us is still the same honestly, as we just can't get enough BioShock (though we may slip in a little Puzzle Fighter, time permitting). With great summer releases few and far...

We spend a lot of time here at X3F reporting on games that require hours of isolation from loved ones. We more or less direct our readership to dedicate their precious hours to solitary gaming endeavors. Sure, you might be connected to Xbox Live with other gamers, but what about the flesh-and-blood...

Everyone relaxed? Good. As you sit there (relaxing, remember) staring at your fat wallet, you should probably be aware of the storm that's approaching. Starting next week with BioShock (unless you win it from us of course), the torrent of Xbox 360 releases begins. BioShock, Blue Dragon, Call of Duty...

If you haven't played the Stranglehold demo by now, we'd be bold enough to venture that you've missed out. By all accounts here at X3F, the game is a blast (quite literally). Filled with liberal amounts of death and destruction, it's pretty much an action gamer's dream. As our own Dustin Burg put it...

Despite the fact we had accepted that it would happen eventually, the loss of a console has taken its toll. We're angry and confused. We've been short with our friends and family. The other day, we stooped to playing Gamecube to dull the pain. It didn't work. We miss all of our dear online friends....

Perhaps you've taken the time to download and play the Dynasty Warriors: Gundam demo that appeared on Xbox Live Marketplace yesterday. Perhaps you haven't. We're going to go out on a limb here and suggest that you take the time to do so. Not because it's a good game necessarily. No, not for that. In...

After a one week hiatus -- induced by the delirium of E3 -- What Are You Playing is back. We couldn't imagine a better "welcome home" present than Bomberman Live on Xbox Live Arcade. If you haven't tried out Hudson's new multiplayer title -- a return to the series' roots -- you owe it to yourself to...

This is it folks, the last Friday before the first kinder, gentler E3. For most, gaming plans will go unchanged. For a select few, a weekend full of travel means that portable gaming time is nigh. Still others will ditch games entirely, opting instead to obsessively watch trailers of games they want...

Despite this week's torrent of new releases, one game stands out from the pack. We are of course talking about the latest from Starbreeze, The Darkness. Yes, the verdict is in, and the critics are taking a shine to the gruesome first person shooter. We're also getting the thumbs up from our resident...
