WRUP: Gamescom exhaustion


Gamescom 2012 in Cologne, Germany, continues through the weekend and we're already tuckered out. Hey, if this show causes an Imperial Stormtrooper to get lax on duty, we don't expect judgment passed on us. Check out our latest posts from the show and, if reading isn't your thing, check out our nightly podcasts, featuring a slew of awesome guests.

What's everyone playing this weekend?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@XanderSliwinski): I won't be home until late Sunday night after covering Gamescom and GDC Europe all week. There won't be time for games, but I really want to get back into Dust: An Elysian Tale as soon as possible.
  • Ben Gilbert (@RealBenGilbert): At the German zoo, the animals had better speak German. Also, planning to disown Jordan over his sudden fascination with Magic: The Gathering.
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): I'm counting down the days until Dead or Alive 5, hoping to wrap up what I have in the backlog pile before then: Mass Effect 3, Dust: An Elysian Tale and Max Payne 3 as soon as I go rescue it from Ludwig's apartment.
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): I'm working on my third and fourth music game reviews of the summer. I didn't expect that to happen!
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): I want to go to the zoo.
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): Because of my roommates' terrible influence, I am now knee-deep in Magic: The Gathering, which, up until this point, had been a nerdism I'd resisted. I'm playing a white/black standard deck I built from boosters, with Crusader of Odric, Rhox Faithmender and Sublime Archangel forming the dominating crux of my exalted/lifelink battle strategy.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): [...]
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): I have Mass Effect 3 and Darksiders 2 both sitting on my coffee table. And that's probably where they'll stay until I have time to play them.
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek): Scouting defensive ends and outside linebackers to place in my new 4-3 scheme for my team in Madden 13 this week!
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM): This weekend will be devoted to sightseeing in Cologne and flying back to the states. And maaaaybe another round of XCOM at the 2K booth.
  • Steven Wong: I'll be playing Good Cop / Bad Cop in Sleeping Dogs.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav): Maybe I'll try out the PC re-release of Final Fantasy VII that I finally got working.
