WRUP: Bizzaro World Edition


We've entered (or is it left?) a land that isn't anything like our own. Up is down, down is left, and inside is at the bottom of the Marianas Trench. What is this crazy place we've gone to? And why isn't Mike Gray writing WRUP this weekend? It's because we're in Bizzaro World.

It's sorta like the comic book version, but a lot less action-y.

Today's WRUP is all about what you're not playing. Read along to find out what we've all given the shun to, and tell us what you're not doing too! Maybe we'll run into some odd creatures in Bizzaro World, like a recently-released WoW in space game.


Adam Holisky (@AdamHolisky) I'm not playing WoW. There, I said it. Happy? What am I playing instead? The first new game I'm playing is called "go outside and walk around a state park with the wife." I get great rewards for doing this, and I'm particularly interested in leveling up (I hear I get low-fat Ice Cream if I ding). The second new game I'm playing is called "spend Sunday coding." I get a lot of gold for that game.

And then I'm playing some Guild Wars 2... WoW will come on Monday.

Allison Robert (@AllisonRobert) I'm not playing Hearthstone because I'm tired of losing to people who have only just discovered the wheel. Then again, it is a form of community service. We all have our place in the Circle of Fail.

Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) I'm not playing Animal Crossing and my town is probably covered in weeds and full of strangers who have, in the absence of a mayoral role model, resorted to dark rituals to tell themselves what to do all day, and cannibalism. I'm also not playing anything else because I'm a very busy girl.

Dawn Moore (@dawnwow) I'm also not playing Hearthstone. Between PC gaming and my day job, I spend enough time at my desk so I really only want to enjoy Hearthstone on a tablet. The problem is I don't own an iPad so I'm either going to have to break down and get one, or wait it out for an Android version. I wonder which will happen first?

Elizabeth Harper (@Faience) Heroes of the Storm. I just don't get it!

Matthew Rossi (@MatthewWRossi) I'm still working on The Book with my friends (up to over 100k words, heading into the home stretch) - as for the game I'm not playing, it's Wildstar. Sorry, guys. I know you're all super excited about this one, but it leaves me absolutely cold.

Sarah Pine (@ilaniel) I'm not playing anything at all right now thanks to lack of access to a gaming-capable electronic device. All of you, enjoy your games for me this weekend!
