WRUP: We game in peace. Always.


"Thank you, to the people of Earth, for embracing our mission of cooperation and understanding. Furthering our efforts, we've decided that we will also share the interactive entertainment interface system of our home planet. Through the diplomatic initiatives employed on our world between what Earth knows as 'corporations,' we have but one entertainment product. The interface is placed on the back of the user's neck and connects directly to the brain through a harmless transfer of chemicals and electrical impulses. All users are connected around the world to each other using a proprietary network that can also translate language in real time. We wish to show you that our technology can not only assist humanity, but also entertain. The device will be available soon. Until then, we wish to know what you are all playing this weekend?

We are of peace. Always."

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@XanderSliwinski): I will make my way through Gay Tony, also really need to try Torchlight.
  • Andrew Yoon (@scxzor): I really hope I play games this weekend
  • Ben Gilbert (@BigBossBgilbert): I'm forging a murderous trail of revenge through 15th Century Florence ... and if I can find the time, I guess I'll play some video games. I was thinking Flower, maybe? Just joshin'! It's Assassin's Creed 2 all weekend long, friends!
  • Christopher Grant (@ChrisGrant): ...
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): Modern Warfare 2 is always buzzing in my ear, telling me where the tangos are at. But, my true goal for the conclusion of this week is to start and finish Assassin's Creed 2, with some Borderlands sprinkled in as a palette cleanser between sessions. I'm a level 41 Siren and close to getting all of the Achievements in the game, so I wanna find those Claptraps and get to level 50 before I start some new characters for their skill-specific Achievements. Oh, and the game totally robbed me of the 12 Days in Pandora, Blood on the Tires and elemental kill-specific 'cheevos, so I need to go for those with a new character.
  • Griffin McElroy (@griffinmcelroy): I'll be playing Call of Duty: Borderlands 4 Dead Tactics A2 vs. 100: Dark Cloud edition. That is to say, I'll be playing all of those games at an expedient rate, which will make them seem like one. I'll let you know how it goes.
  • James Ransom-Wiley: Doing my darndest to forgo the Assassin's Creed ... during my dear friend's wedding.
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): Phantasy Star Zero continues to delight me. But now New Super Mario Bros. Wii is here, and I don't know what I'm going to do with all this delight. There's too much delight in this house!
  • Justin McElroy (@JustinMcElroy): With Wirehead and Dracula Unleashed finally behind me, I can finally move on to more modern FMV games like Gabriel Knight II: The Beast Within. Oh graphics, why did I ever waste my time with you?
  • Kevin Kelly (@gadgetguy): I'm at Board Game Geek Con in Dallas, where they have more board games than I could ever imagine. Seriously, their checkout library looks like the Smithsonian for game geeks. So far the most popular title is Dungeon Lords where you're a dungeon owner trying to outfit your dungeon with traps, monsters, etc. I may never come home.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): I'm pretty sure life is setting me up for a debilitating fall if it has granted me a chilly, rainy weekend with Dragon Age: Origins, Assassin's Creed 2 and Star Trek on Blu-ray. I'll become unbearably paranoid if pancakes also show up.
  • Randy Nelson (@DangerPenguin) It's a "His & Hers" weekend here at the ranch. Hers: God of War Collection and New Super Mario Bros. Wii. His: Assassin's Creed II, Modern Warfare 2 and the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 multiplayer beta. Now two figure out which half of the TV is mine, and which half is hers ...
  • Richard Mitchell (@SenseiRAM): Modern Warfare 2 has thus far impressed. That game has more dramatic jumping moments than any other game in recent memory. As in, other characters yelling "JUMP!" at you. Beyond that, it'll be Torchlight and maybe some Demon's Souls. Then it's time for GOTY slogging.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav): ...
  • Justin Glow (@justinglow): (Wears a human suit.)
