WRUP: Someone no longer likes us on Facebook edition

Eliot Lefebvre

It finally happened. Like fools, we ignored the dire warnings of what would happen if we kept posting stuff about games you don't like or articles you didn't agree with. The worst has finally come to pass -- someone no longer likes our Facebook page.

We've been in shock here at the office. I've been hitting the rum pretty hard even by my standards, Jef is sitting in an empty bathtub sobbing, and Bree has been playing "Unbreak my Heart" on loop for about seven hours. We'd plead for that reader to come back, but he'll never see it. He no longer likes us. It's really the worst insult you could deliver.

Despite the fact that this traumatic event has left us as broken shells, we somehow managed to pull ourselves together long enough to put together an installment of WRUP. Click on past the break to see what we're up to for the next couple of days other than staring at the number of likes on Facebook, and let us know what you'll be up to in the comments.

@Beau_Hindman: I'll be switching to Anno Online for Rise and Shiny next week; it's from the same people who brought us The Settlers Online and it looks fantastic so far. I'll also be enjoying some more time in Defiance and PlanetSide 2. Both are such great casual games and both look amazing. I'm surprised at how much I'm enjoying Defiance. I'll be doing at least a little bit of roleplaying in GemStone IV and trying to see if I can peek into RuneScape's new HTML5 stuff.

@nbrianna: Guild Wars 2 for me. My guildies tell me we will be doing anything but Southsun Cove, so I take that to mean it's not going well.

@PsykopigAU: With my internet down, I am unfortunately MMO-less this weekend. But Skyrim calls me and I shall be adventuring as hard as I can!

@Eliot_Lefebvre: There's precious little time to be spent on things like enjoying myself this weekend, but I hope to fill what I've got with some Star Wars: The Old Republic. Maybe a few other titles, I've been feeling the pull of my offline library.

Jef Reahard, Managing Editor and Columnist Extraordinaire@jefreahard: Outside of a little TERA and a little DC Universe Online, I'm pretty much playing SWTOR these days. In fact, I think it's gotten to the point where it's my primary fun-time MMO, at least until ArcheAge learns to speak English or I learn to speak Korean.

Justin Olivetti, Columnist Extraordinaire and Senior Contributing Editor
@Sypster: I've dived head-first into the Southsun achievements in Guild Wars 2, so hopefully I'll get my cool tentacle backpack this weekend. I also have plans for a little Wildermore in Lord of the Rings Online, leveling up a new Guardian Fighter in Neverwinter, and trying out a hammer/shotgun build in The Secret World.

MJ Guthrie, Columnist Extraordinaire and Contributing Editor
@MJ_Guthrie: Weekend? What is this weekend you speak of? I shall most likely be swallowed up by real life, but getting into The Secret World and Darkfall every moment I can claw myself away from that wretched beast. If it sleeps, I might even get a little SWTOR in. I'm not holding my breath though, because that would be counter-productive and I wouldn't be able to play anything! Vile beast!

@RichieProcopio: This weekend I will continue to unlock the secrets of Southsun Cove and take part in the new living story content in Guild Wars 2. Karka. Why did it have to be karka? I'll also be playing some Neverwinter with the hopes of achieving max level sometime before the end of 2015. What? It could happen!

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!
