WRUP: Cannot has edition

Michael Sacco

Every week, just at the start of the weekend, we catch up with the 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!

Since Liz is at E3 this week, Adam offered to organize this week's WRUP, asking everyone to submit their favorite lolcat from our lolcat wars in team chat. Unfortunately (or is it fortunately?), almost no one did. So you cannot has lolcats. What you can has is a rundown of what the team's up to this weekend. They're not entirely dissimilar; just replace "I" with "Alex" and "cheezburger" with "Borderlands," and the effect is pretty much the same.
  • Alex Ziebart (@alexziebart): I'm still enjoying Borderlands. I haven't been playing it a lot, just getting a level here and a level there, so it's been a good time waster. This weekend is also the festival from my old grade school up the block from where I live, so I'll probably spend a lot of time there with some old friends. If I can fit it in between those things, I'll probaBZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzZZZZzzzzBZZZZZZT
  • Allison Robert (@AllisonRobert): Sleep. House-painting. More house-painting. More sleep. It will be glorious.
  • Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey): ICC25 - we downed Deathwhisper on HM, so now it's just Putricide, Sindragosa and LK. ... I am not looking forward to Sindragosa.
  • Amy Schley (@wowlawbringer): More bar prep, as always. I'll also be at the local Shakespeare in the Park festival. Nothing like Richard III's "Now is the winter of our discontent" while we're sweating in 85 degree heat.
  • Daniel Whitcomb (@danielwhitcomb): I'm actually plugging along much as normal. I should have Shadowmoon Valley's quest achievement done this weekend, then I'll move on to Netherstorm, so as long as Cataclysm doesn't drop tomorrow, I'm hopeful I'll just be able to take it slow and steady toward Loremaster. I also may run the Mass Effect 2 Overlord DLC on my Renegade Shepard to get the Data Hound achievement I missed on my Paragon Shepard and to look at some of the conversation trees I missed or skipped.

  • Joe Perez (@Lodurzj): Celebrating our confirmation kill of 25-man Lich King, and our successful forays into hard modes. Getting ready to tackle more of them on Tuesday. Dungeons and Dragons with the friends Saturday where I get to introduce my Shadar-Kai rogue to the party and stun lock me some mobs! After that still working on my Dresden Files RPG campaign, it is almost ready for my unsuspecting ... I mean adventurous group of gamers!
  • Kelly Aarons (@Cadistra): I'm playing the game "Weekend overtime at my full-time job." Then I'll be playing "frantically get comics done." As for favorite lolcat? Hmm ... tough one. I'll have to come back when I'm not replying to this from work.
  • Matt Low (@matticus): Not playing anything this weekend. Probably will be busy BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ BZZZZZZZZZZZ BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ World Cup soccer.
  • Mathew McCurley (@gomatgo): This is one of those weekends where I wrote a giant list of things that I have to get done, and if I get half of the list complete it will be a giant victory. Fun times. I think I might be going to Ikea. There's a corner of my living room that is begging for a bookcase.
  • Michael Gray (@writegray): This weekend, I'll be playing "host Father's Day."
  • Michael Sacco (@mikesacco): Considering finally unlocking West Elizabeth in Red Dead Redemption.
  • Rich Maloy (@stoneybaby): Crazy weekend ahead with a packed schedule. I'm being interviewed by the Rawrcast on Friday. The weekend proper will find me having quality time with the girlfriend one day and working with @gomatgo on a great idea he's got brewing the next. Evenings will find me alternating between "Angry Stoney" and "Motivational Stoney" as Big Crits continues to work on Sin 25. I lol at all your lolcats.
  • Robin Torres (@cosmiclaurel): Lego Universe Beta, STO, and some WoW of some sort or another. But, more importantly, I'm in the market for a replacement casual PC game for Plants vs. Zombies. I think The Spawn and I are finally tired of it and I want something else fun for us to play together. Any suggestions?
  • Tyler Caraway (@murmursofadrid): I won't be playing much this weekend as I'll be in the process of moving! Yay new places! Who doesn't love doing that?

The weekend is the perfect time to kick back, relax and enjoy some game time. Are you an achievement junkie? Can't get enough raiding? Rolling a new alt? Considering taking the leap into roleplaying? Whatever your favorite way to play World of Warcraft, let us know in the comments what you're playing this weekend!
