WRUP: Turn on the faucet


As we make our way to the tail end of August, it's almost time for the deluge of games to begin into the holiday season. Walking Dead finale, Destiny and Sims 4 are all launching in the coming weeks. Then things really get flowing!

What's everyone playing this weekend?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@Sliwinski, Twitch): Hearthstone daily quests to relax and I still have much to do in Rogue Legacy. So very, very much.
  • Anthony John Agnello (@AJohnAgnello): Going to probably dive back into Sailor Moon Another Story on SNES now that I've got a spare hour or two to do so, then heading back underground in Metro Last Light in Metro Redux. That game looks ridiculous on a beastly PC, but boy is it grim. That's why I listen to Ben Folds Five's song "Underground" while playing it.
  • Danny Cowan (@db_cowan, Twitch): Putty Squad and Deception 4. And Hay Day. Always Hay Day.
  • Earnest Cavalli (@Ecavalli, Twitch): The Demon Hunter on my PC is laughing at the level 31 Barbarian on my PS4 from deep within his Paragon Levels, so I'm going to be spending the weekend with Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition, making something useful out of my giant axe man.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt, Twitch): Something happy. Fez? Battleblock Theater? The Walking Dead?
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK, Twitch): [...]
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek, Twitch): Madden 15. I'm talking REAL football, SINAN!
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM, Twitch): Diablo 3 on PS4 is excellent, y'all. Also, fingers crossed, my Oculus Rift should be here soon. So I'll probably look up any virtual horror experiences I can find.
  • Sinan Kubba (@SinanKubba, Twitch): Tales of Xillia 2. I thought I'd try a JRPG for a change.
  • Sam Prell (@SamPrell, Twitch): The girlfriend has started playing DC Universe Online and, well hey, it's free and I can't resist trying an MMO. So... that.
  • Susan Arendt (@SusanArendt, Twitch): Dragon Roomba 2 (aka Danganronpa 2) and probably more Diablo 3. All the really good dyes are on the harder difficulties, I've learned, so now that I'm level 50, I think it's time to up the ante. My monk will have an all-pink outfit. This I promise.
  • Thomas Schulenberg (@T_Schulenberg, Twitch): I've never played the Diablo series, but Diablo 3 Ultimate Evil Edition showed up on my doorstep this week. Time to see what this legacy is all about!
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav, Twitch): I bought a set of Dominoes and will attempt to not get schooled by my mom who is visiting me in LA from Toronto this week.
