What we’re playing: Shoryuken Edition

chunli.jpg

There’s plenty of great new games to be played this week (Dawn of War II, Halo Wars, GTA IV: The Lost and Damned), but the office was certainly a buzz over the release of Street Fighter IV. Talking with others at the office, it definitely feels like an arcade experience when you’re playing against other guys online. As I type, I’m nursing some pretty severe thumb blisters.Here’s hoping we can generate some interest for an office tournament played within our theater. That would be amazing.

We hope you’re all having a great weekend. Let us know what games you’ve been playing…

Dan Lee, Artist: Retro Game Challenge (DS), Street Fighter IV (360), Rockband 2 (360), Valkyria Chronicles (PS3)

Joel Burgess: GTAIV, Gears of War 2, Morrowind.

Liz Beetem: Dawn of War 2 and House of the Dead: Overkill, which is awesome and anyone who likes horror anything should buy it! It is the Dead Alive of videogames.

Chris Esko, Gameplay Programmer: Finishing up Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts, Gear of War 2 – Horde mode, Fallout 3.

Mike Dulany, Programmer: Street Fighter IV, Flower

Ben Carnow, Trog Wrangler: I’m playing Dawn of War 2, and House of the Dead: Overkill. If you have any love for the lightgun genre, exploitation films or things of quality you should purchase Overkill.  A crazy-polished experience and some of the most condensed fun I’ve had with a game in ages.

  1. Fallout 3. Finally continuing from the last spot where I got killed way too much. I left and returned with a vengeance! And now apparently I am the master of evil.

  2. I finally got Left 4 Dead on the 360, and got the Resident Evil 5 demo, which is awesome. xbox Live are running a promo for Gold members to give Braid for 800 points this week only (instead of the usual 1200) so I grabbed that yesterday.

    On the PC, I had a brief go on Morrowind – ah, such fun times we’ve had! – and I’m still clinically addicted to Diamond Twister on the mobile phone.
