WRUP: Jetzt geht's los!


Now... now we got ourselves a matchup. Microsoft's reversal of the Xbox One's intended DRM features was the kick in the pants the console needed to go from punching bag to contender against Sony's PlayStation 4. Competition is good for the consumer.

What's everyone playing this weekend?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@Sliwinski): The Last of Us has shown up in my house and I simply don't have the time. It's a test of will. A test of will I'll likely fail.
  • Danny Cowan (@Sardoose): After picking up the PS3 version thanks to PlayStation Plus, I'm playing through Saints Row: The Third again. Yes, I got all of the achievements in the Xbox 360 edition. Yes, I will get the platinum trophy. Yes, I'm totally hype for Saints Row 4.
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): Since I'm on the east coast for another week, I'll probably get back together with the old tabletop crew this weekend for some Risk, Dominion, Puerto Rico and Bang. When not doing that, I'll be playing XCOM and Solstice Arena on my iPad until I can get back home and finish Tomb Raider.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): Cleaning The House: The most dangerous game of all.
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): This on loop all weekend.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): [Chillin' with Mickey...the mouse.]
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): I'm at a wedding in Denver so I'll be teaching a bunch of old ladies the Electric Slide. Also, XCOM on the iPad: it's finally heeeeeerrreeee!
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek): Slowly getting over an awful cold, so I'll be playing any games that include blankets and chicken soup. And more Animal Crossing.
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM): Impromptu guys night thing this weekend, so I'll be playing Last Night on Earth if it kills me. Beyond that, gotta sacrifice dem souls!
  • Sinan Kubba (@Shoinan): I'll be playing E3-Flu: Extended Cut. I won't go into the details.
  • Steven Wong: The load time on this baby is taking FOREVER...
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav): EVE Online and The Last of Us. Basically what I wanted to play last weekend while I was sleeping.
