WRUP: I'll take 'Things Only Blizzard Can Get Away With' for $500, Alex


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 that you will reveal what you'll be playing this weekend... next week. Because that is how you and Blizzard roll.

@ceruleangrey: I'm going to be crafting vast quantities of things in Final Fantasy XIV because I need money if I ever want to have my own personal house when that comes out. Also, Grand Company quartermasters are total suckers who will give me over 200 of their currency for a single salt cod. No wonder they need help from adventurers.

@nbrianna/blog: I'm going to be playing life-size Tetris with everything I own and a POD too small to fit it all. Real-life moving makes me long for the simplicity of MMOs, where I can just put my horse in my backpack. Wish me luck!

Eliot Lefebvre, Contributing Editor
@Eliot_Lefebvre/blog: I've got various things to do in Star Trek Online, WildStar, and Final Fantasy XIV. That should hold me over for most of the weekend, but if I've got a little extra time, I'll probably play around with some sadly neglected single-player stuff. Or just start working ahead on Final Fantasy IV.

@jefreahard: Dabbling in Firefall and ArcheAge, despite the fact that I hate (HAAATE!) playing pre-wipe builds. Can't help it, though. For all its faults, AA is giving me the virtual world feels because there's just so much to do and it's such a welcome departure from the past decade of feature-deficient grindpark crap.

Justin Olivetti, Contributing Editor
@Sypster/blog: I've taken a break from my Medic in WildStar to concentrate on my baby Engineer for a while instead. So I'll be doing all of the challenges I can handle, looking for a new guild (my old one doesn't talk that much), and creating yet another awesome house. Other plans are for a little Dungeons and Dragons Online adventuring and some Lord of the Rings Online hardcore leveling.

@Shaddoe/blog: This weekend will be a mix of the Rakghoul Event in Star Wars: The Old Republic and testing guild capital ships on PTS. My ship completely disappeared, and I'm hoping the devs are able to restore it. I am also still working on my single-player run-through of Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2 in preparation for the launch of Dragon Age: Inquisition.

MJ Guthrie, Contributing Editor
@MJ_Guthrie/blog: As much as it might seem pointless at times to dive in and do so much when you know it will all be wiped, I just can't get enough Landmark and ArcheAge! I'll be splitting my gaming time between these two still-no-release-date games: I am on a building spree in Landmark and having tons of fun with my new build, and I can't resist hopping in to tending my farm and do trade runs in ArcheAge.

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!
