Four in February is upon us and the Joystiq crew is participating. The premise is simple: finish four games in the month of February. We've got more details in our introduction post. What are your four?

What's everyone playing this weekend?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@Sliwinski, Twitch): SimCity and starting 4iF with XCOM: Enemy Within on PC.
  • Anthony John Agnello (@AJohnAgnello): Word to the yoga wise: crossing your legs and saying,"Yogayogayogayogayogayogayogayogayoga!" will not make you float, nor will it instill in you the power to stretch your limbs to impossible lengths. While I will hopefully also be getting comfortably into crow pose this weekend, I'll be digging into Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Then: Four in February time! I'll start with Bucky O'Hare for NES because as far as I can tell it's IMPOSSIBLE.
  • Danny Cowan (@db_cowan, Twitch): I'm starting up Four In February with Virtual Hydlide. Actually, it's probably a good idea to play "replace my Saturn's dead battery" first. Anyone got a spare CR2032 laying around?
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle, Twitch): I won't be starting my 4iF this weekend like everyone else, so I anticipate I'll spend a lot of time playing Super Street Fighter 4 in-between disc golf and the Super Bowl.
  • Earnest Cavalli (@Ecavalli, Twitch): Thanks to this Four In February deal I'll be making my triumphant return to the wastes of Fallout 2 this weekend. I think this time I'll do a low intelligence run, because nothing says "savior of the Vault" like an muscular idiot solving all of the future's problems with guttural screams and an oversized cudgel.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt, Twitch): Holy wow, it's February already! This weekend is my anniversary so I should play the most romantic game from my Four in February list: Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK, Twitch): I'm playing OctoDad for laughs, and Tearaway to kick off my Four in February.
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek, Twitch): I'm kicking off my Four in February list with Tearaway. Let's do this! #4iF
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM, Twitch): As part of my Four In February, I'll be doing my damnedest to beat Risk of Rain on Monsoon difficulty. After that, I think it's time that I finally finish Enemy Zero on the Sega Saturn. I gave up on it as a kid and never went back to it. Let's see if it still feels as tense today as it did back then!
  • Sinan Kubba (@SinanKubba, Twitch): Diet 2014 early access
  • Sam Prell (@SamPrell, Twitch): Uh, hello? THE PUPPY BOWL, what else?
  • Steven Wong: All my stuff is still dismantled and packed in boxes... so I guess I'll be playing Unpacking.
  • Susan Arendt (@SusanArendt, Twitch): Taking a crack at horror puzzler In Fear I Trust, and making it through the winter in Don't Starve. I'm up to Day 29, and I have a mighty set of rabbit earmuffs. They are fashion forward and also delicious.
  • Thomas Schulenberg (@T_Schulenberg, Twitch): I'll be finishing up Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble, digging up my abandoned save for Donkey Kong Country Returns, and starting The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks as my first Four in February game!
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav, Twitch): Now that I've moved, it's time to set things up and get back to gaming. My buddy, former co-host and colleague Brian Leahy is pushing Dota 2 on me like an expert dealer. I must resist!
