WRUP: Inefficient good ideas edition


Wow, the Twitter app on the Xbox Dashboard preview sure is exciting, let's use the on-screen keyboard to tweet something:

W-H-A-T-space-I-S-space-E-V-E-R-R-backspace-Y-O-N-E-space-P-L-A-Y-N-backspace-I-N-G-space-T-H-I-S-space-W-E-E-K-E-N-D-question mark.

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@XanderSliwinski): Borderlands will be played significantly this weekend. Definitely a multiplayer-centric game for maximum enjoyment.
  • Andrew Yoon (@scxzor): My PSP Go has become a godsend thanks to jury duty. Still working on PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe, and hoping to download GTA Chinatown Wars in time for even more days worth of sitting around doing nothing.
  • Ben Gilbert (@BigBossBgilbert): Resisting the urge to buy Borderlands with all my might, I'll be playing Canabalt on my iPhone whilst carting to and fro between GameX. I've been told that Dante's Inferno and Bayonetta will be there, but I've been fooled before.
  • Christopher Grant (@ChrisGrant): With Ben and I headed for GameX in the outskirts of Philadelphia, I'm not sure how much game time I'll have. However, while there, I hope to play the game of: Drink Beer at the Sly Fox Brewery in Nearby Phoenixville. Oh, also Uncharted 2.
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): I'll be playing the game of I Hate Ben and Chris Because They Never Invite Me to Anything. Also: Uncharted 2. I'm at the Monastery and, boy, is it amaaaaayzing!
  • Griffin McElroy (@griffinmcelroy): It doesn't look like I'll have a whole ton of free time this weekend -- whatever little bit I do have I'll likely spend playing WoW or the LittleBigPlanet Water Beta.
  • James Ransom-Wiley: My folks are visiting this weekend, and I'm hoping I can fool them into thinking Uncharted 2 is a totally awesome movie that can't be missed. Who knows? It's worked so far on the girlfriend.
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): I'm going to participate in a quest at Britannia Manor. For reals.
  • Justin McElroy (@JustinMcElroy): I'm gonna try to finish up Kingdom Hearts: 525,600 Minutes/2 Acts, while I think about how nice it'll be to go home next week.
  • Kevin Kelly (@gadgetguy): Like Griffin, I sold my free time to Satan this weekend. But if I manage to score some, I'll have to throw a dart at a board and select Uncharted 2, Borderlands, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, or Stranglehold (which I just picked up for five bucks.)
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): It's time for an in-game road trip! First, through the impeccably rendered hairpins of Dirt 2, and then across the badass landscapes of Brütal Legend.
  • Randy Nelson (@DangerPenguin) Believe or not, I'm still on my first playthough of Uncharted 2 ... because I don't ... want it to be over. I'm also going to dive into Borderlands co-op, so if you're on my friends list and playing it, hit me up!
  • Richard Mitchell (@SenseiRAM): I'll be headed to Memphis, Tennessee for the Sister-in-Law's gigantic Halloween party, so not much gaming for me. I did just buy SingStar though, so maybe I'll cart that up there.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav): I'm hooked deep into Borderlands, so I don't expect to be rolling with anything else. Well, except NHL 10... but that's only because I'm legally required to play it as a Canadian citizen.
  • Justin Glow (@justinglow): (Vomiting rainbows.)
