WRUP: AFK getting married


Sponsored Links

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!

Oh, hi. I wasn't expecting anyone here today -- we're closed. Closed for business. Yes sir, no WoW Insider today. Just a ship on autopilot until the next sunrise.

Why? Oh, you know, someone here at WoW Insider's just "AFK getting married." That's a pretty big deal. And while none of us were actually invited to the wedding (nah, whatevs, that's cool, I didn't want to go anyway), we did want to take the day off and pretend that was the reason. So yeah, this wedding here is kind of cool. And it's happening ... I don't know, somewhere in the Upper Midwest? Also there are puppets here? I don't know, I may just have had too many mimosas.

Congratulations, Adam. *pops champagne*

Adam Holisky (@adamholisky) /afk getting married

Allison Robert (@AllisonRobert) Some last-minute beta work, and then casting a critical eye at my banker on the live servers and deciding what stays and what goes. Also, ruing the day I threw out some Vicious Gladiator pieces to make space, because I got the hankering to transmog back into them and now they're out of the game. Sad beartree is sad.

Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) Likely writing, and working on a side project that doesn't actually involve writing for once! I believe we're also fiddling around raiding on Sunday, although what we'll be doing ... well, I've no idea yet.

Chase Christian (@madsushi) I'll be playing Path of Exile, a Diablo clone that's still in beta. I've been having fun so far, though it is very deep and complex.

Chase Hasbrouck (@alarondruid, @alaronmonk) Adam wins the thread. I've got family coming for the weekend, and they're sleeping in the room where my desktop is set up, so very little screen time for me. I just finished playing through Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions with my son, so I might pick up the newer one for his birthday.

Daniel Whitcomb (@danielwhitcomb) I'll be doing some late summer spring cleaning and otherwise taking care of business IRL, but if I have time, I want to run Binding of Isaac a few times and see if I can defeat the game with ???. I also need to do some spring cleaning on my WoW characters ahead of Mists of Pandaria, getting rid of old reagents and gear I don't want to keep for transmog purposes, moving stuff to void storage, that kind of thing.

Elizabeth Wachowski (@leeatwaterlives) The baby has restricted how much I can use the laptop, so maybe I'll work on some unfinished console games. Kingdoms of Amalur, Arkham City and Mass Effect 3 spring to mind.

Fox Van Allen (@foxvanallen) Certainly not doing anything that will trump getting married, so why bother?

Joe Perez (@lodurzj) Matticus is going to help me shake off my FPS rust in Counter Strike: Global Offensive this weekend. If nothing else I make really awesome bait.

Lisa Poisso (lisapoisso) Remember those auctions I talked about needing to get around to putting up last week? This week, I guess I gotta log in my banker and see what sold ... /sigh Not a fan of banking and auctioneering.

Matt "Matticus" Low (@matticus) Wallin' people and getting unbelievable headshots in Counterstrike: GO. WHOO!

Megan O'Neill (@slowpoker) Beta LFR or dungeons if no LFR. On live, probably doing 5-man achievements with guildmates to get their Volcanic drakes. (Heading South appears to be a popular last-getter.)

Michael Gray (@writegray) Now that the Humbling River is 4 weeks old, it's time to cast a critical eye toward all that pregnancy weight I put on. Which is like, a lot. So I'm going to start excavating a patch of land with a good old-fashioned shovel to build a new office space and figure the exercise will be good for me.

Olivia Grace (@oliviagrace) I can't take Adam on, but AFK Gamescom!

Robin Torres (@cosmiclaurel) Local carnival. Mists. Pirate Fluxx. Making sacrifices to the weather gods so that this heatwave ends.

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!
