WRUP: Polarization


Welcome back to Massively's What Are You Playing, the game where we tell you what we're playing this weekend and you try to convince us that there's no place for nuance or constructive criticism in the MMO genre because this is war, so pick a side. If you criticize one aspect of a game, that means you hate the whole game forever and ever, right? Right?!

@ceruleangrey: I'm going to do some map completion on my alts in Guild Wars 2 because I need transmutation charges and practice playing different professions and an excuse to take dozens of screenshots of my alts.

Bree Royce, Editor-in-Chief
@nbrianna: The new dailies set-up in Guild Wars 2 has been enough of a turn-off that I went looking for something else to play and found it in the most bizarre place imaginable: Villagers and Heroes. Man I am a sucker for a cutesy sandbox.

Eliot Lefebvre, Senior Contributing Editor
@Eliot_Lefebvre: Aside from a couple of projects I'm working on for my personal site that involve demos and vampires, I'll be playing through the ArcheAge alpha and roleplaying in Final Fantasy XIV.

Jef Reahard, Managing Editor
@jefreahard: The Elder Scrolls Online and Marvel Heroes here.

Justin Olivetti, Senior Contributing Editor
@Sypster: I'm going to try to remember to log into WildStar's beta at least once a day to save up all of those, ahem, boom boxes, but past that I'll probably be fiddling around in Guild Wars 2. I need to collect all of the skins -- all of them! Lord of the Rings Online needs some of my time as well, as the Hobbits can't take themselves to Isengard, even with directions.

Larry Everett, Columnist
@Shaddoe: I think this weekend is all about personal projects; I've got some that I'm working on. But I am going to step into ESO and Star Wars: The Old Republic so that I don't fall too far behind guildies.

MJ Guthrie, Contributing Editor
@MJ_Guthrie: I have finally poked into Marvel Heroes, and now I have to add a new game into my (very disorganized) rotation! I'll be enjoying my new free hero there as well as trying to figure out that one investigation mission in The Secret World that still has me stumped. Add in cruising around in Landmark -- and maybe building a something or two -- along with a bit more ArcheAge and my weekend will be full. Except I also miss EverQuest II...

Shawn Schuster, Senior Editor
@Epykbeard: It's my last week in Elder Scrolls Online for Choose My Adventure, so I'm going to make the most of it. I'm sure I'll still play the game (and probably this CMA character, along with alts) after this month is over because I'm really enjoying the game so far.

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!
