WRUP: The end of #4iF


And here we are at the end of Four in February. How'd you do?

What's everyone playing this weekend?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@Sliwinski, Twitch): Diablo 3 Loot 2.0. It's like a totally new game or, possibly, the game we all wanted in the first place.
  • Anthony John Agnello (@AJohnAgnello): Like Sinan, I am an utter 4iF failure. Just because I can still make it all the way through some NES games does not mean that I can defeat all NES games. I have paid for my hubris with embarrassment. Time moves on, though. I'll be playing a bunch of Eidos Montreal's new Thief over the weekend and, as I'm way late to the party on this one, some Mario Kart 7 as well.
  • Danny Cowan (@db_cowan, Twitch): Reviews got in the way of my 4iF playthroughs this month, and it's with a heavy heart that I must admit I've failed. I beat a handful of games in February, but only one of them was on my 4if list. I am shamed. I'll drown my sorrows in Strider this weekend.
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle, Twitch): I too didn't finish my #4iF because I'm a dumb loser who is a big dumb idiot. As for this weekend, I'll like get in the usual amount of Street Fighter and hopefully find time to play through the Left Behind DLC in The Last of Us.
  • Earnest Cavalli (@Ecavalli, Twitch): [...]
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt, Twitch): I'm so ashamed. I'll try to knock out at least one Four in February game this weekend: Amnesia. I deserve to be scared silly.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK, Twitch): I'll be traipsing through Dracula's abode in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. Sometimes you have to grab it by the shoulders, shake it and yell, "You're an action game! You're an action game! Snap out of this stealth stupor!"
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek, Twitch): I beat two games this month, and I'm actually pretty happy about that. I think I'll reward myself with some Need for Speed: Rivals action, though XCOM is calling my name.
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM, Twitch): I successfully cleared Risk of Rain on Monsoon and earned every achievement. I beat Silent Hill: Shattered Memories again. I had to review Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 (and I enjoyed it), so I'm subbing that for Monkey Island 2. By the time you read this, I will be madly plugging away at Enemy Zero, trying to escape all of its invisible monsters before the clock strikes midnight on Friday.
  • Sinan Kubba (@SinanKubba, Twitch): I've successfully played 0 of my 4iF games. I did play four games in February though, and I'm taking that to the bank.
  • Sam Prell (@SamPrell, Twitch): Vel'Koz has come to League of Legends, so I plan to play mid lane like a drum. And this other thing I can't talk about. As for 4iF... we don't talk about that.
  • Steven Wong: I'm not sure how much time I'll have for gaming, but I'll try to set some aside for Strider.
  • Susan Arendt (@SusanArendt, Twitch): I think I'll probably skip gaming this weekend in favor of catching up on as many Best Picture nominees as I can before the Oscars on Sunday.
  • Thomas Schulenberg (@T_Schulenberg, Twitch): I beat Spec Ops: The Line and got pretty far in The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, but that's it from my #4iF list. I beat Super Mario 3D World and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, though - does that count for anything? As for what I'm playing now, I've finally started Earthbound! That will be my go-to for free time, unless I accidentally play Warframe until 2AM again.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav, Twitch): I failed you and myself by completing exactly zero games selected for my Four in February. Reviewing The Last of Us: Left Behind and covering events (like the Titanfall preview and more) took up that time! On my off hours? Yep... more Battlefield 4 on PS4. I'm hooked.
