WRUP: Every MMO needs a theme restaurant


Welcome back to Massively's What Are You Playing, the game in which we tell you what we're playing this weekend and you tell us which MMO needs a theme cafe more than Final Fantasy XIV. I'm thinking an EVE Online greasy spoon would be a hoot.

@ceruleangrey: I just picked up Landmark when it was on sale, and now my upgraded rig even runs it OK (mostly)! So I'll be marking land. My better half grabbed it too, and as predicted, she's taken to it like a digger wasp to dirt. Currently she's hollowing out what she calls her "mountain fastness" and turning it into a shrine to Cthulhu. I think. I couldn't find my way into it to save my life, so for now her secret is safe. I haven't built anything this time around myself because 1) I'm too emotionally connected to my old claim still, and 2) I just discovered grappling hooks and have been grappling things a lot.

@nbrianna/blog: Most likely I'll poke my head into Guild Wars 2. I miss it to bits! I've also been going through all my DVD binders and sorting my old games into keep and pitch piles. Man, The Sims games kinda have a lot of disks. Bonus: I found my copy of Star Wars Rebellion and am aiming to try reinstalling it for kicks. Truly one of the best Star Wars games! Don't look at me like that. I'm serious.

@Eliot_Lefebvre/blog: I've got some stuff to do in Final Fantasy XIV, and watching Guardians of the Galaxy has me more jazzed about WildStar (a game I already have been enjoying, obviously). Aside from that, a bit of Star Trek Online in the mix and possibly picking up some more portions of my neglected single-player library.

@Sypster/blog: I'm trying to finish up the third episode of Guild Wars 2's new season before going back to (sigh) working on my personal storyline. Being a completionist is tough sometimes, y'know? I'm also downloading Dungeons and Dragons Online right now to give it a return whirl, although a new character in Lord of the Rings Online might forestall that. In other news, I will never get to the endgame of any MMO, ever.

@Shaddoe/blog: It's been a hectic week for me, and it might be a hectic weekend, too. I will likely continue my attempt at RP revival in Star Wars: The Old Republic. However, I do want to step out of MMOs for just a bit because I'm looking forward Dragon Age: Inquisition, and when I play a sequel, I like to play the originals first. I might make time for Origins and DA2 this weekend, too.

@MJ_Guthrie/blog: A little Lord of the Rings Online festival, a bit of The Secret World, a smattering of Landmark building, and a helping of ArcheAge beta. But mostly, I'm going to be leveling up in vacationing! Gotta hit that cap before it ends. =D

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!
