WRUP: Awaiting Sherlock


"Xbox, make Sherlock debut faster!" Useless! For those in the States (who haven't used the internet in some dark way), Sherlock's third season premieres Sunday night on PBS. If you don't know what all the fuss is about, the first two seasons are on Netflix.

What's everyone playing until Sherlock?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@Sliwinski, Twitch): Don't Starve. Like, a lot.
  • Anthony John Agnello (@AJohnAgnello): After weeks of forcing myself through the first three (out of five) cases in Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, I'm officially quitting the game. The charming weirdoes of the previous games have been replaced with a bunch of jeering dummies, and I'm sick of the game just telling me what to do every second. I'm turning my attentions to more noble pursuits: murdering the turkey in Don't Starve. I'll show him. I'LL SHOW HIM BUT GOOD! ... I'm also going to play some Senran Kagura Burst. Don't judge.
  • Danny Cowan (@db_cowan, Twitch): I'm still trying to 100 percent Saints Row 4, but there's so, so much stuff I haven't done yet in virtual Steelport. Some co-op Rayman Legends is also on the docket.
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle, Twitch): I'll be busting mad kickflips in OlliOlli on PS Vita this weekend.
  • Earnest Cavalli (@Ecavalli, Twitch): Despite my therapist's objections, my masochistic relationship with Battlefield 4 continues unabated.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt, Twitch): Dungeon of the Endless! I'll probably die a lot. Maybe not as much as Susan, but a lot.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK, Twitch): I'm going to try Risk of Rain when I take the rare, unlikely break from Broken Age.
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek, Twitch): More Tomb Raider and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for me.
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM, Twitch): I will be desperately trying (and failing) to stop playing Risk of Rain. It's insane how perfect this game is for me. As someone who works from home, that's a dangerous thing.
  • Sinan Kubba (@SinanKubba, Twitch): Totally judging Anthony while playing some Persona 4 Arena.
  • Sam Prell (@SamPrell, Twitch): My pokemon got infected with the pokerus, which is apparently super rare and good to have, especially if you're into EV training (which I am not). So if anyone out there wants to trade me a Mew for my infected Oddish (what? Totally fair trade), I'm totally down for that. And yes, I know Mew wouldn't be legit. But it's okay, trader. It can be our secret.
  • Steven Wong: I will be moving some stuff to my new place this weekend, so I guess I'm playing real life Stacking.
  • Susan Arendt (@SusanArendt, Twitch): I am attempting to make it to Day 10 in Don't Starve. I spawned into a map that was covered in spider eggs, and then a mecharhino chased me and killed me. I did, however, snatch a tallbird egg and cook it, as payback for all the times that dang thing killed me. Mmm....delicious revenge omelettes.
  • Thomas Schulenberg (@T_Schulenberg, Twitch): Barreling my way through Donkey Kong Country again was so satisfying that I've decided to just keep going. I've only ever cleared Donkey Kong Country: Diddy's Kong Quest once (didn't grow up on it), but I'm looking forward to reclaiming Dixie Kong's hovering abilities. I'll also keep going with Persona 4, which I've just started and am really digging so far.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav, Twitch): Moving to a new place soon. Moving is the worst. It's figuratively killing me so much that it might be literally killing me. My only respite is playing more Splinter Cell: Blacklist on PC. Anyone playing multiplayer? Add me on Uplay: XavDM.
