There’s a lot of common ground this weekend on what the devs are playing. Mostly notably, several folks (Joel, Jeff, Phil, Daryl, and Jonah) are returning to PlanetSide. For those that missed it, it’s a classic Massively Multiplayer First-Person game that was originally released back in 2003. Outside of that, folks are playing Wii Sports Resort, Worms 2: Armageddon, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, (re-released on Xbox LIVE arcade this week), Gears of War 2 (with new DLC out), Secret of Monkey Island (whether it’s on iPhone, Steam or 360), and much more.
