WRUP: A star-studded event featuring Power Ranger David Yost


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

Well, it's time to write WRUP again. Really, it's one of the most stressful days of the week. I only get one chance to share a miscellaneous video dredged up from the bowels of the internet, and if it's not good, I run hundreds of thousands of weekends.* So which to choose? Rapping Joan Rivers? Welcome to Paducah? Or something risqué that will no doubt get me fired from having to do WRUP, ending the living nightmare once and for all?

(*Estimated page views may not match actual WRUP readership.)

Oh, by the way, if you're a fan of the video I share each week on WRUP, you should go visit my friends at Everything is Terrible. They're curators of the awful, responsible for about 80% of the videos I use here for WRUP. And they're coming to a town near you to air their newest video. If you've never been to an Everything is Terrible show, you haven't lived. Seriously. Do it.

In the meantime, it's the weekend, and that means it's time to WRUP. What are you doing this weekend?

Alex Ziebart (@AlexZiebart) Mass Effect 3. I will not rest until the galaxy has been saved. Oh, and I'll be working on more Neva Cora. Probably. If the Reapers don't interrupt me.

Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) I think I might catch up on some Skyrim this weekend, it's been awhile since I've had a chance to play. Raiding on Sunday, and ... that's about it for the weekend really!

Chase Hasbrouck (@alarondruid) ME THREE (this would have been funnier if I were actually the third person to reply). Mass Effect and WoW are the only two series that are worth buying release day to me, IMO.

Dan Desmond (@antigen_) You guessed it: Mass Effect 3. I could pretend that I'm going to look at another game, whether that's SWTOR or WoW, or even think about buying Assassin's Creed: Revelations, but I really can't see myself playing anything other than ME3.

Daniel Whitcomb (@DanielWhitcomb) Mass Effect 3. Single player, multiplayer, whatever. I'm gonna take down some Reapers for Emily Wong.

Dawn Moore (@dawnwow) Probably little to no games this weekend. I want to write and practice riding my motorcycle. I really need to come up with a name for her. She's so small that I was thinking some reference to a tiny and adorable game character. Like Teemo from LoL. But I want her to be a girl so all I could think of was Navi, but that implies she's a bit annoying. Any ideas?

Elizabeth Wachowski (@leeatwaterlives) Mass Effect 3. I was finally able to give my Shepard the purple hair she so deserves!

Fox Van Allen (@foxvanallen) ( Instead of playing video games, I'll be going to see their scores played in concert instead. Murmurs and I are going to Distant Worlds at Symphony Hall here in Boston, and it's going to be awesome.

Joe Perez (@lodurjz) I'm still not playing ME3, as much as I really want to. I'll be playing LoL, WoW, and doing some writing. Oh, and Mario Kart on the 3DS because, well, it's Mario Kart!

Josh Myers (@PostColloquial) I am not playing Mass Effect 3. Sadface.

Kelly Aarons (@Cadistra) I'm actually going to be doing a livestream of me playing the free, Unity-based horror game "SCP-087" on Saturday night! Come on by and watch a grown woman break down into a gibbering mess of tears and cursing! Aside from that, I'm really hoping to get some WoW and Devil Survivor 2 in. I managed to convince a coworker of mine to use the new Scroll of Resurrection, so now he's got a goblin on my server. Bonus question: Vatican cameos!

Mathew McCurley (@gomatgo) See Alex and Matticus and anyone else who said Mass Effect 3. Also some League of Legends and some World of Warcraft. I am introducing someone new to the game.

Matt "Matticus" Low (@matticus) Mass Effect 3. Mass Effect 3. Mass Effect 3.

Matt Walsh (@Rhidach) It will be a miracle this weekend if I manage to remember to feed myself, with all the Mass Effect 3 I'll be playing.

Megan O'Neill (@slowpoker) I will be playing the "Procrastinate Spring Cleaning As Much As Possible" game, which involves writing things, gearing up my troll priest, and farming the ICC 5-mans for my druid's transmog gear.

Michael Gray (@writegray) I'm having a home-chore weekend. Time to make a new round of beef jerky, dry some fruits and veggies for snacks, and we're brewing an exciting new chocolate stout recipe. Also taking measurements for a bedroom remodel to make room for the Shieldling. With all that out of the way, will be soliciting beta reads for my book. Just saying.

Olivia Grace (@oliviadgrace) I think I might be the only person who's not playing Mass Effect 3. I'll be playing ... wait for it ... wait for it ... yep, that's right, WoW again. Just for a change! I think I'll be resurrecting a "friend's" account and giving myself -- er, I mean, my friend who is also called Olivia ... a level 80 mage. As Fox didn't give us a bonus again, I reckon we should play Mornington Crescent. I'll start. Ladbroke Grove. Yeah, I went there.

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!
