WRUP: Two weeks until PlayStation 4


We're just two weeks out from the launch of the PlayStation 4. If you're getting one, what's the plan? Gonna camp out in front of the neighborhood Best Buy? Pick up a Costco-sized package of Twinkies for your friendly GameStop associate to hold one for you on the side? Or do you plan to sit outside until you hear the rumblings of the Amazon-sent UPS van?

What's everyone playing this weekend?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@Sliwinski, Twitch): Finally going to finish The Last of Us! It's going to happen.
  • Danny Cowan (@db_cowan, Twitch): I'm finally playing The Last of Us, months after everyone else has finished it. It's pretty dang good so far! I'm also going to check out Puppeteer this weekend, on Susan's recommendation/insistence.
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle, Twitch): Now that my Battlefield 4 review is finished, I'm super excited to play what I hope is a most hilarious train wreck of a game: Beyond: Two Souls.
  • Earnest Cavalli (@Ecavalli, Twitch): I never played The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker in its GameCube incarnation. It's my only failing. Hopefully I can make up for that this weekend with the Wii U's HD remake.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): [...]
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK, Twitch): [...]
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek, Twitch): Now that I have my brand new Xbox 360, I plan on playing WWE 2K14 all weekend long, attempting to break The Undertaker's WrestleMania streak.
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM, Twitch): I suppose I should find out how well my PC runs Battlefield 4. Beyond that, I might take a break from games and practice my ukulele. I'm also reading Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency for the first time in years.
  • Sinan Kubba (@SinanKubba): Dual Destinies (wahoo), Sonic: Lost World (awwww), and Beyond: Two Souls (dunno yet).
  • Sophie Prell (@SophiePrell, Twitch): Outlast and the Legacy of Kain series are on sale on Steam so THAT'S tempting the crud outta me. Can a backlog or return to any of my MMOs protect my wallet? Stay tuned!
  • Steven Wong: I will continue punching crime in the face with Batman: Arkham Origins, and perhaps I will be committing crimes with Payday 2.
  • Susan Arendt (@SusanArendt, Twitch): I have started training Pokeymans, and I have much to learn. Also playing Device 6 and Waking Mars.
  • Thomas Schulenberg (@T_Schulenberg, Twitch): I know I'm supposed to be doing the badge thing, but I'm too busy filling my Pokedex in Pokemon Y. I'm also learning how many new evolution requirements Game Freak has added since I last played one of these games.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav, Twitch): I've been streaming all kinds lately! Rocking my new PS4 controller I've played Killzone 3, Battlefield 4 and plan to test out more stuff. It's outstanding and about one million times better than the DualShock 3. (Admit it, that controller is terrible!)
