WRUP: Joystiq freshens up


Maybe you've noticed had a little refresh this morning? Maybe not. It's very subtle, but it should be easier to share stories with friends and give easier access to your favorite Joystiq editors. All our Twitter handles are right with our stories now, so if you're interested in the behind-the-scenes content (and what we had for lunch), go ahead and give us a follow.

What's everyone playing this weekend?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@Sliwinski, Twitch): Finals. And maybe some Don't Starve, because I need to see somebody clearly more miserable.
  • Anthony John Agnello (@AJohnAgnello): Getting my gluttony on in Kirby Triple Deluxe, laughing at Surge ads in The Longest Journey, and trying in vain to not be absolute garbage at Titanfall.
  • Danny Cowan (@db_cowan, Twitch): More Kirby Triple Deluxe, then more Albert Odyssey on the Sega Saturn.
  • Earnest Cavalli (@Ecavalli, Twitch): Hearthstone. Always and forever, Hearthstone. I'm this close to proposing to Hearthstone, and making an honest woman out of ... that faux card game. This suddenly took a turn for the depressing.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt, Twitch): Tetris, Dr. Mario and Super Mario Bros. I'll be in a cabin up north with my old NES all weekend. Mmm.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK, Twitch): I should probably be playing something fresher, but I'm stuck between Final Fantasy X (remastered) and Castle of Illusion (remade).
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek, Twitch): Going to hopefully reach the World Cup in 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, then check out Octodad on PS4.
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM, Twitch): Dark Souls 2 is kind of breezy compared to the original, but I'm still loving it.
  • Sinan Kubba (@SinanKubba, Twitch): Dangerously close to a triforce of Final Fantasy X, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13, and Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn. I do play other types of games, I really do.
  • Sam Prell (@SamPrell, Twitch): I'm gonna grab Thief and finally start looting the city of ... *looks up what the city is called* ... seriously? "The City?" Well, I can see this is going to be an Oscar-worthy screenplay. Oh well, I'm in it for the treasure. Also, hopefully I can catch up to Susan in FF14 and see if playing with someone is more fun than solo.
  • Susan Arendt (@SusanArendt, Twitch): Grinding away at Final Fantasy 14, which I'm not at all sure I like yet. Of course, I haven't figured out how to do half the things in the game, and I can't stand what my character's wearing, so that's part of it. Also taking a whack at Child of Light.
  • Thomas Schulenberg (@T_Schulenberg, Twitch): Real-life Tetris with all of my stuff and a moving truck.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav, Twitch): Brand new computer is built and it's a beast! I think I'll play something that really pushes the limit of my machine like Cookie Clicker. That has PhysX support, right?
