WRUP: You'll play it ... eventually


The Steam Summer Sale is currently on, which means millions of people are buying games they're convinced they'll play at some point. You know, in the future. When they have time. Tell us again what your backlog is looking like?

Anyway, what's everyone playing?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@Sliwinski, Twitch): Hearthstone and waiting for the Naxx expansion. Come on, Blizz. I need it. I want it. Just put it out already.
  • Anthony John Agnello (@AJohnAgnello): Face breaking seems to be the only viable option for victory in UFC! Like Susan, I will actually be taking a break from video games over the weekend. I will be going to the beach and leaving behind all of my electronic devices save a 2005 iPod full of ridiculous music to accompany my reading Hammer of the Gods: The Led Zeppelin Saga. It's going to be amazing.
  • Danny Cowan (@db_cowan, Twitch): It's about time I dive back in to Drakengard 3. I'm also playing the original Resident Evil again, this time on Saturn. Everything about that game is basically burned into my brain at this point.
  • Earnest Cavalli (@Ecavalli, Twitch): I'm spending the weekend with EA Sports UFC. Maybe I'll learn how to convincingly submit an opponent, or maybe I'll continue my surprisingly effective "just kick that dude's head off" strategy through a lengthy tour of the Light Heavyweight division.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt, Twitch): Child of Light on Xbox One. I've decided it's time to use this thing for something other than the World Cup.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK, Twitch): I'd love to try Child of Light, but I have a feeling this weekend will be claimed by Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate.
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek, Twitch): I'm going to be breaking faces all weekend in EA Sports UFC. A little disappointed I can't call my career mode fighter "The Dentist."
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM, Twitch): I will shovel with honor and dignity in Shovel Knight.
  • Sinan Kubba (@SinanKubba, Twitch): What's that? I can't hear you above all the World Cup.
  • Sam Prell (@SamPrell, Twitch): I finally picked up a Wii U, so my days and evenings will be full of hot rubber-on-asphalt action, by which I mean Mario Kart 8 and Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed.
  • Susan Arendt (@SusanArendt, Twitch): Nuthin', 'cause my PS4 is busted. I'm also just kind of not in the mood to play anything at the moment.
  • Thomas Schulenberg (@T_Schulenberg, Twitch): After I catch up on sleep I'm gonna burn like, six consecutive hours on the couch with Watch Dogs and Forza 5. I'm also gonna start The Witcher 2 - no no, I mean it this time. Really!
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav, Twitch): I'm hunting the Grey Wolf in Sniper Elite 3 for review.
