WRUP: Gears of Joystiq


Congratulations again to Josh Smith, winner of our Joystiq T-shirt contest. You'll be able to pick up his Joystiq-inspired design and one by Cory Schmitz soon at TopatoCo.

What's everyone playing ... besides Gears of War 3?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@XanderSliwinski): Getting in as much Gears of War 3 Horde mode as possible. I may dabble in the deathmatch. Maybe. Also, want to finish off Tropico 4, which has a substantially sized campaign.
  • Arthur Gies (@Aegies): I'll be playing the "make sure someone can feed my cat" game while I get ready for a trip next week to see some games. In the meantime, I will demon hunter it up in Diablo 3, get in some Horde in Gears 3, and play some more RE4 HD.
  • Ben Gilbert (@BigBossBgilbert): Gonna try my best to finish Deus Ex and get right into Gears of War 3. Also, I've gotta spend some quality preview time with Rochard and Sideway, which is to say, "I'll play the preview games and nothing else, and then be disappointed in myself come Monday."
  • Christopher Grant (@ChrisGrant): With Gears of War 3 in the bag, my plan is to ... probably replay Gears of War 3. Arcade Mode, co-op, Beast Mode, Horde Mode ... where to start?
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): Gears of War 3! I'm currently level 36 -- if I don't hit 50 this weekend and unlock my boy Hoffman in multiplayer, then I will be very disappointed in myself.
  • Griffin McElroy (@griffinmcelroy): I'll be finishing up the co-op Gears 3 campaign before watching the Packers/Bears game on Sunday, finally emerging from my cocoon as a newborn Bro.
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): I'll be playing the wackiest indie games of tomorrow at Fantastic Arcade.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): My roommates and I just decided on a group Halloween costume, and to mentally prepare, I'll play some TF2. And Minecraft. Also, I'll secretly edit fairy wings onto Jordan's Gundam models for every Oxford comma he uses this weekend.
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): My car is hemorrhaging cash money in the shop all weekend, so I won't be able to attend any of the fantastic fantasticalness at Fantastic Fest. Sorrows will be drowned by El Shaddai, Gundam model building, and secretly editing Oxford Commas into Jess' posts when she's not looking.
  • Justin McElroy (@JustinMcElroy): I bought Gears of War 3, but haven't had time to play it yet. Hoping to dip into that and some more Adventure World on Facebook. Don't you judge me.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): I'm planning to alternate rapidly between Gears of War 3, Catherine and Bloodrayne: Betrayal. Let's test the fragility of my brain!
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): Gears of War 3, Diablo 3, and LoL: Dominion are all games that are waiting at home for me while I'm out of town at an improv festival. So it's GoatUp and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn while I'm still out on the road.
  • Richard Mitchell (@SenseiRAM): It's a monstrous weekend for me, with hellish helpings of Diablo 3 and Vampire Savior.
  • Steven Wong: Going to take advantage of this Sega sale and try out Space Channel 5: Part 2. Also picked up FEAR 3 on discount, so I'll be giving that a spin too.
