The Tokyo Game Show continues through the weekend, with our team bringing you previews and news of the latest titles -- like Final Fantasy: Infinitum Closure 23/482 [DuoTricem]-2 for mobile devices.

What's everyone playing?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@XanderSliwinski): Close to finishing up Tropico 4. Only have about six more missions, so that's like 12 hours.
  • Arthur Gies (@Aegies): I'll be spending some time with Red Orchestra 2, but I'll most certainly be playing more Gears of War 3. Hopefully I can get some Horde going, but co-op campaign is calling to me as well...
  • Ben Gilbert (@BigBossBgilbert): I've been at TGS since Tuesday and the only games I've played are Jetpack Joyride and Balloon Fight. I did get held hostage on a boat for five hours, though.
  • Christopher Grant (@ChrisGrant): I've somehow put the excellent (so far) Resistance 3 aside in an effort to rip through Gears of War 3 before its release next week. Oh, and I've got some PlayStation Move gear thanks to GameStop's 50% off sale, so going to try Tumble and maybe the LittleBigPlanet Move Pack.
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): Apparently I'm close to the end of Deus Ex, but this copy of Gears of War 3 sitting on my desk keeps calling me. I fear I may not be able to resist for long. Oh and on Saturday, I'm doing this.
  • Griffin McElroy (@griffinmcelroy): I just finished Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and now I feel like something way less sneaky. Gears 3 should satisfy that need fairly well.
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): I'm going to play Phantasy Star Online 2 until they kick me out again.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): Scrabble and Catch Phrase. It's my mommy's (<3!) birthday this weekend and her one and only wish is to have a game night with the family. She wouldn't mind getting a Jaguar XF though, if anyone's feeling saucy.
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): I'm going to give Apartment Hunter Tri a break for a few days and throw myself into the hateful, abusive arms of Radiant Silvergun.
  • Justin McElroy (@JustinMcElroy): You guys like Monstermind? I know I do. That's all I am anymore, a machine that destroys food and turns it into Monstermind playing energy.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): I think I might play Gears of War and Gears of War 2 for a bit, right before the FedEx man drops off Gears 3 on Tuesday. I've played the first two games enough, but I always like seeing the evolution of a series while the games are still fresh in my memory.
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): Still playing through Bastion, and pretending that I'm cool enough to play Gears of War 3 early. The COGs are really murdering those Grubs ... in my head.
  • Richard Mitchell (@SenseiRAM): Between now and Sunday, I'll be playing and writing about all the Japanese games. All of them, including Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, a bunch of Vita titles and a bewildering number of Final Fantasy games. Thanks to Sony I also have a new game: Avoid all boats.
  • Steven Wong: Leveling up my multiplayer character in Space Marine and maybe inching a little further in Jetpack Joyride.
