WRUP: What is it about bobbleheads


Welcome back to Massively's What Are You Playing, the game where we tell you what we're playing this weekend and you tell us how bobbleheads make people with unusually fat heads really sad. Or just fly around in circles in Rata Sum giggling and photobombing screenshots. Whichever works.

@ceruleangrey: I'll be doing some dungeons in Final Fantasy XIV (maybe) and leveling my Warrior in Guild Wars 2 (definitely). Warrior is the only GW2 profession I don't have at 80, and I'm still trying to learn to like it. Having a sword that shoots bats helps.

@nbrianna: Man I love having just way too much to play! I know I'll be in Guild Wars 2 a bit, and I'd like to get Landmark's closed beta installed, and Diablo III is hosting another bonus XP weekend, and TUG is back on my machine thanks to Steam. I also have this strange urge to play Skyrim. All good stuff!

@Eliot_Lefebvre: My gaming-related flowchart for the weekend is pretty simple. 1) Get more stuff done in Final Fantasy XIV. Sure, I'll be tome-capped, but there's stuff to do. 2) Toy around with demos for my personal site. 3) Holy no PAX East is next week where is my toothbrush.

@Sypster: I have a busy weekend planned, so chances are that I won't be logging in very much. If I do, it'll be nothing special -- just leveling my Mesmer in Guild Wars 2 and my Lore-master in Lord of the Rings Online. I really do need to carve out some time to check out Landmark's new build, however.

@Shaddoe: This weekend, I will spend an awful lot of time leveling up my Imperial Templar in the Aldmeri Dominion in The Elder Scrolls Online. However, I will also spend some time in Star Wars: The Old Republic buying items that just hit the GTN from the latest Cartel Pack.

@MJ_Guthrie: I plan on checking out a new race and starting zone in Elder Scrolls Online and a different nightmare dungeon in The Secret World. Other than that, expect me to be lost completely in Landmark, stocking up the treasure in my maze for folks to find (assuming anyone has found those three chests and looted them!) and building the above-ground structures.

Shawn Schuster, Senior Editor
@Epykbeard: I will be splitting my time between The Elder Scrolls Online and the Landmark beta. This Sunday I'll be creating the ESO Choose My Adventure character during my livestream, and I'm really excited about that.

At the start of every weekend, we catch up with the Massively staff members and ask them, "What are you playing this week?" (Otherwise known as: WRUP!) Join us to see what we're up to in and out of game -- and catch us in the comments to let us know what you're playing, too!
