Looking through the responses I got to my “What we’re playing” email this morning, it seems like most of the devs are spending their time playing some of the new RPGs that are now out. In terms of single-player RPGs, Penny Arcade: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, is already becoming a fan favorite at the office. Meanwhile in the MMORPG realm, Age of Conan is beginning to impede on precious World of Warcraft play time. You’ll also notice that Square’s newest RPG on the DS, The World Ends with You, is getting some serious attention.
After taking a look, let us know what you’re playing.
