WRUP: We'll be here


From all of us here at Joystiq, to all of yours: may the holiday break be happy, healthy and festive. We'll be here, tending the fires and doing our thing. Feel free to stop by and wave.

What's everyone playing?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@Sliwinski): With Far Cry 3 done, I dive into one of the many indie darlings of the year: FTL.
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): This weekend I'll be playing a lot of Anomaly Korea on my iPad, XCOM on my console and probably Mirror's Edge on my computer – because it's always been too long since I've played Mirror's Edge.
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): I'm exclusively playing Vita games right now: Knytt Underground and Persona 4. Remember the Vita? This thing is pretty neat!
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): [...]
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): I am at the mercy of the Steam sale. Just, sell me whatever you want, I'll buy it.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): Finally, finally finishing The Walking Dead, and then attempting a delightful, clumsy co-op run through New Super Mario Bros. U.
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): I plan to continue my year-end console game run with XCOM and Dishonored. Also playing the Penny Arcade card game on iOS, and Battle of the Bulge, and Deepworld. All so great.
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek): I've been tapping on Double Fine's new iOS game, Middle Manager of Justice, along with the iPhone version of You Don't Know Jack. Both make me giggle a lot.
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM): I've been in Florida for a week, so I think it's time for a tropical getaway with Far Cry 3.
  • Sinan Kubba (@Shoinan): I'll be flying too close to the sun with Kid Icarus: Uprising, as well as putting more time into Halo 4 and Torchlight 2.
  • Steven Wong: When I'm not testing the limits of my creativity with Scribblenauts Unlimited, I'll be getting together with family to play Borderlands 2.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav): I'm in Toronto for the holidays, so it's mostly gaming on the go this weekend. Persona 4 Golden on the Vita, Cook Serve Delicious on iPad, and FTL on my MacBook Air.
