WRUP: Quiet, we are watching our stories edition

Eliot Lefebvre

Keep it down, now. We here at the Massively offices are watching our stories. These stories are very important to us. They contain a large number of cast members, and it is vitally important that we keep up with each and every one of them. During our story time, we don't want to hear about how RIFT is shutting down or World of Warcraft is launching an expansion about narwhals or Camelot Unchained is actually just Super Mario World with a few new sprites. We're watching our stories.

If you're so bored you can just read this week's installment of WRUP, which contains all of the Massively staff's plans for the weekend. Well, the plans of those not too involved in watching our stories to reply. These are really important, you see. Here, just sit down and watch with us. Or read our plans past the break and let us know what you'll be up to in the comments -- that works too.

@Beau_Hindman: I'm playing a ton of games for different pieces. The new RaiderZ expansion area has been incredibly fun, but it destroys my poor gaming wrists. Although I wrote up my Champions Online Second Wind piece already, I'm still enjoying the game and will be seeing how much more I can tweak my character. I've also been given a chance to get back into Guild Wars 2, so I'm excited to jump back into that for more than just several hours. I also need to look at The Lost Titans some more and try and get some time with Mechwarrior Online, and I'd like to get some time in RuneScape, but honestly it probably won't happen until next week.

So, I'm playing a lot. Hopefully I can squeeze in time for a drink with friends and of course Game of Thrones night. We bought a lemon cake in honor of cheese boy.

@nbrianna: If my internet gets fixed, I'll be farming baubles in Guild Wars 2 because shinies. If not, I'll be weeping quietly in a corner.

@Eliot_Lefebvre: I've got so much Star Wars: The Old Republic to play you don't even know. If you had asked me three years ago about the Hutt Cartel I would have changed the topic, but I find that I am now infinitely interested in Hutt Cartels and the rising thereof. Also have one last stretch in Star Trek Online before the conclusion of my Choose my Adventure series.

@irljasmine: Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider. I'm MMOless for another week, so I've been sinking all of my gaming time into Tomb Raider and mobile games. I'm playing this silly house decorating game called Line Play where the entire point appears to be putting stuff in your house and visiting other people's houses to see what sort of stuff they have. Gathering the gem currency to buy tiny, digital bathtubs is close enough to grinding leatherworking in World of Warcraft.

@MJ_Guthrie: Although I will have really only one day to game this weekend, I totally intend to dive deep into The Secret World (I'm learning how to better gear my Lumie), Neverwinter (it's time to check out the healer), and some EverQuest II (new house means new decorating project). I might even squeeze in some SWTOR just to move my little smuggler along a bit more, but don't hold me to that one!

@RichieProcopio: This weekend I will be jumping into the Neverwinter beta so I can once again struggle with only having two character slots. I've also been playing copious amounts of Minecraft with my two sons and so I'm sure this weekend will be filled with saving them from creepers and wondering where all my diamonds have gone.

At the start of every weekend, we catch up with the Massively staff members 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!
