WRUP: Walking Dead sport talk


AMC's breakout hit The Walking Dead finally returns next Sunday, October 16, with its second season (Season 1 was added today to Netflix streaming). Some may watch the show for the drama, but we hope you watch it like a sporting event. See, you've played enough zombie games by this point that you know how it works when the zombie apocalypse hits. Go ahead, yell at those little league survivalists on TV, you know better!

What's everyone playing?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@XanderSliwinski): One level left in Tropico 4. It's getting cold outside, so I may see what's up on Steam that I could try out.
  • Arthur Gies (@Aegies): With any luck, I'll be playing some Forza 4 (bring me a dream, FedEx man!), and I've also got a little of some Rayman game or another on my coffee table. Otherwise, I'll be playing Write All of the Previews 4: WRITE NOW all weekend.
  • Ben Gilbert (@BigBossBgilbert): Shadow of the Colossus arrived earlier this week and I haven't play even a minute of it yet. Come to think of it, I haven't played even a minute of any video game all week.
  • Christopher Grant (@ChrisGrant): I've got a lot to choose from: Arkham City is going to take the bulk of my time, but I've still got Rage to finish up, and Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper, if I'm looking for a palette cleanser. Also, Monsters Ate My Condo. Always Monsters Ate My Condo.
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): Ranked Execution in Gears of War 3, that's my jam. If I take a break from that, I might finish up Deus Ex or start up Orcs Must Die! on my ehxbawx.
  • Griffin McElroy (@griffinmcelroy): I'm playing Batman: Arkham City and Dark Souls, and, just, God, I couldn't be more excited.
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): I'm just starting Solatorobo, which seems perfectly lovely so far. My progress will be impeded somewhat by the fact that I have God Hand on my PS3 now.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): I'll spend my time playing L.A. Noire and pretending it's Arkham City, possibly by making whooshing bat-cape noises every time I step into a vehicle or walk slowly through a crime scene.
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): [...]
  • Justin McElroy (@JustinMcElroy): Right now, I'm playing Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, which is surprisingly ... well, I'm not allowed to say yet. But it's surprisingly something.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): I'll be playing Rage, which the box says is from the creators of Doom and Quake. What could possibly go wrong?
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): I'll be at IndieCade for most of the weekend. When I'm not, I'm on Monsters Ate My Condo and Gears of War 3.
  • Richard Mitchell (@SenseiRAM): Killing gigantic monsters (and being killed by them) in Dark Souls. Beyond that, a few more attempts to enjoy the Battlefield 3 beta and dreaming of an iPhone 4S.
  • Steven Wong: Going to try to get in on the Battlefield 3 beta before it shuts down. Chances are, I'll be living life 15 seconds at a time.
