WRUP: Best geeky rom-com ever


Welcome back to Massively's What Are You Playing, the game in which we tell you what we're playing this weekend and you wipe away a tear because the Jedi Guardian who re-sparked Jef's flame for Star Wars actually stumbled into his post and they fell in love and got married because of SWTOR but not really. But wouldn't that make a great geeky rom-com?

@ceruleangrey: I might noodle around a little in Final Fantasy XIV, even though I'm still too far behind to get into much of the 2.3 patch content. Since the waypoints in Guild Wars 2 seem to be under attack by thorny vines, maybe I'll wander around and examine them and wonder what vines use to pay travel fees.

@nbrianna: I'm going to make it my gaming task this weekend to get in and do some Guild Wars 2 stuff, probably on my Warrior since I miss her sparkly sword and axe and her totally impractical but lovely leaf skirt armor and yes mom life is a fashion show!

@Eliot_Lefebvre/blog: I've got Final Fantasy XIV's patch 2.3 to play around with, and I should do some leveling of alts in WildStar whilst I wrap up summer festivities in Star Trek Online. I also really want to get further ahead in Final Fantasy IV and start chewing through a couple of games for personal projects.

@Sypster/blog: Other than doing a soon-to-be legendary The Secret World stream with MJ on Saturday night (now with more opera singing!), I'm going to be pushing hard to hit 25 with my Medic in WildStar so that I can hoverboard across the world. I also would like to run my Guild Wars 2 Ranger through the recent update before next Tuesday hits with yet more stuff to do.

@Shaddoe/blog: I've been working hard on selling items on the GTN for my guild. I want my guild to have some of the coolest stuff you can get when Star Wars: The Old Republic's Galactic Strongholds goes live. So this weekend, you will likely see me standing by the GTN selling my wears.

@MJ_Guthrie: I plan on trying to kill the Kaiden Tokyo boss as many times as possible in The Secret World this weekend so I can get the full set of of clothing and the pet from the anniversary event. I am also delving back into Elite: Dangerous with a long-term player who'll be showing me the ropes! Other than that, I'll be sure to mine more copper in Landmark; I almost lost my claims this week! And if there is still time left, I'll try to advance my story quest for my now level 50 Jedi Sage in Star Wars: The Old Republic. I might even throw in a few meals here and there, maybe a nap... maybe.

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!
