WRUP: To the cloud


Saving to the cloud has been part of our lives for a little while, but streaming games from a cloud can still feel like voodoo. That brave new world hit a milestone this week when Sony purchased Gaikai for a "new cloud service" at the healthy price of $380 million. It'll certainly be interesting to see what Sony does with its new magic set and how well it incorporates the new service into any upcoming (or current) products.

What's everyone playing this weekend?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@XanderSliwinski): After discovering Pokemon: Conquest only holds one save and I can't seem to remove it, I'm a little stuck. Discovered my Steam account works over in Europe, so I've been playing Bejeweled 3. It's really a great unwinding game.
  • Ben Gilbert (@RealBenGilbert): I'm heading to Pennsylvania this weekend to see the lady's family, so I'm playing, "Don't egregiously offend a bunch of religious suburbanites."
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): This weekend I'm hoping to roll over into red in Gears 3 and continue my snail-like progression in Mass Effect 3. I'm totally failing the galaxy, you guys.
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): I'm going to play the first two levels of Spelunky, forever.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): I hear this Pyrovision thing is pretty cool.
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): The 360 should be back online at the new place this weekend, so I'll be diving into Mass Effect 3's Extended Cut stuff.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): I'll continue my journey into the acoustic halls of The Atrhythm.
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): I'm just about done with Rayman Origins (finally), and have just started on Pokemon Conquest. Oh, and everybody get Outwitters on iOS: I'm toucansamurai.
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek): I really want to beat the rest of Barry Sanders' challenges in NCAA 13's Heisman Challenge mode, so I'll be doing that.
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM): I find myself enraptured by The Secret World. If I have time and/or the inclination, also Trials Evolution, Mass Effect 3 and Hero Academy.
  • Steven Wong: I'll be visiting some friends and family, so I probably won't be getting much gaming in... unless we suddenly decide to jump in Diablo 3, which is a real possibility.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav): Found my Wavebird controller and GameCube memory cards. It's time to revisit Metroid Prime, my favorite game last generation.
