WRUP: Virtual insanity


It's what we're living in.

What's everyone playing this weekend?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@Sliwinski, Twitch): Want to try out Mercenary Kings, Dungeons of the Endless and... maybe, InFamous Second Son. Just not sure about time investment in the latter. Too much homework. Oh wait, I also have that strategy game with Marth from Smash Bros... I can't remember what it's called now.
  • Anthony John Agnello (@AJohnAgnello): Last weekend I got hopelessly lost in South Park and loved every last minute of The Stick of Truth. The amount of specific writing in that game gave me fits of existential panic. There's episode specific and joke flavor text on every junk item! This weekend, I'll be getting hopelessly lost in Seattle with Infamous: Second Son. I enjoyed the first hour of that game, though it's slow to open up. I like smoke swooshing all over the place, though, so it should be a good time.
  • Danny Cowan (@db_cowan, Twitch): I might finally play Dark Souls 2! Nah, I'll probably just spend another weekend playing Sega Genesis games. I just got a copy of Rocket Knight Adventures, so that sounds like a good weekend project.
  • Earnest Cavalli (@Ecavalli, Twitch): I plan to be very lazy this weekend, moving as little as possible, and reserving all of my energy for rapid mouseclicks in Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt, Twitch): After talking with Sam about Ether One on the podcast, I kind of have to play that game. Creepy, pretentious and brilliant – sounds like my kind of game.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK, Twitch): I have to drive a motorcycle through some insane obstacle courses.
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek, Twitch): A whole bunch of MLB 14: The Show. I got 14 strikeouts in my first AA appearance in Road to the Show; I'm working on building the next baseball phenom with a rocket arm.
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM, Twitch): I have an improv show on Saturday, so that will be fun. Video games? Hmmm. Probably Dark Souls 2 and Bravely Default. I don't really play Bravely Default though, I just build my village. I have over 80 citizens. It's a problem.
  • Sinan Kubba (@SinanKubba, Twitch): Sleepless in Seattle 2: Infamous Second Son.
  • Sam Prell (@SamPrell, Twitch): Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD. Which means I will be reading a book the entire time, so I don't miss out on any items or ultimate weapons. Following a strategy guide: it's fun!
  • Susan Arendt (@SusanArendt, Twitch): I shall be making star babies galore in Conception II, and then bringing them into immensely dangerous dungeons. I'm a horrible parent.
  • Thomas Schulenberg (@T_Schulenberg, Twitch): I need to clean up my town in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - I've planted so many trees that I can barely see fossils at this point. I'll probably also find more time for The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, since I enjoyed clearing its first dungeon so much.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav, Twitch): [...]
