There’s plenty of great new games being played these days — Dawn of War 2, Puzzle Quest: Galactrix, Street Fighter IV or more — but after seeing the above photo at 1Up — I figured we had to feature Killzone 2. I’ve heard a lot of great things about the game, and I look forward to sitting down with it.
Here’s the rest of the games we’re playing this weekend…
Craig Lafferty, Senior Producer: Killzone 2, Zen Bound, World of Warcraft.
Jay Woodward, AI Programmer: GTA IV: The Lost and Damned, iDracula, and more of the Battlestar Galactica boardgame.
Chris Esko, Gameplay Programmer: Puzzle Quest: Galactrix, Rock Band 2, trying to resist buying a new computer to play Dawn of War II.
Sam Bernstein, QA: Chrono Trigger, Halo 3, Left 4 Dead, and Team Fortress 2.
Ryan Lea: Braid, Gears of War 2.
Fred Zeleny, Doctor of Spaceology: Puzzle Quest Galactrix and the Battlestar Galactica boardgame. Taking war against robots and colored hexes requires eternal vigilance, galloping paranoia, and chain combos.

Louis Riley: GTA IV DLC, Street Fighter 4, FEAR 2, Left 4 Dead.
