What we’re playing…

It looks like it’s time for me to dust off my Street Fighter IV tournament stick. Looking through the list of games being played, it appears I’m missing out on Super Street Fighter IV. Sounds like it’s time for a trip to Best Buy.

While I go shopping, let us know the game’s you’re planning on playing this weekend.

Aaron Mitschelen: Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love; Borderlands, Civ 4, Record of the Agarest War. Yeah, that Record of the Agarest War.

Michael Aubuchon: Halo Reach beta, Uncharted, and QUAKE LIVE.

Caedmon Somers: Modern Warfare 2.

Matt Ponton: Super Street Fighter IV.

Kevin Kauffman: Red Faction Guerilla. Such a cathartic game.

Craig Lafferty: Just Cause 2, Halo: Reach Beta, and Super SF4.

Alistair Hatch: Halo: Reach Beta, Lost Planet 2, Alan Wake, and Bioshock 2.

Michael Musick: Even more Monster Hunter Tri. It’s a pretty perfect balance of challenge and fun. My 360 and PS3 aren’t too happy about it, though…

Rob Clark: Enjoying the old & learning the new of the Halo: Reach beta, Starcraft 2 beta, touring the dark underbelly of the stealth-type meta game of rogues in Wow (I’ve played on & off for years and never knew how different the gameplay was for the sneaky bastards)

Daryl Brigner: Blur Demo, Fallout 3 (With MANY mods, including FWE), URU Live if the server ever comes back up, and maybe some more Myst III: Exile.

Michael Lattanzia, QA: Monster Hunter Tri, lots and lots of Monster Hunter Tri, and Lord of the Rings Online.

Orin Tresnjak: Badman 2. If I can tear myself away from that, Just Cause 2. If I can tear myself away from that, maybe one of these other games that’s been piling up unplayed on my coffee table…

Dan Ross: FF13, Boom Blox, Neptune’s Pride, and (hopefully) Monster Hunter Tri.

Matt Killmon: StarCraft II Beta and Final Fantasy XIII.

Gary Powell: Nier and Way Of The Samurai 3.

Ken Barner: I’m playing with the heart strings of women. I also recently replayed a Newgrounds game a friend made called Souljapig. Twin little girls invited me to play with them in a hallway but I didn’t b/c they were creepy.

George Churchill: Still working hard on FFXIII and enjoying some Bad Company 2 from time to time.

Matt Grandstaff: Halo: Reach beta, Heavy Rain, Madden 10, and MLB 10. Or maybe just Super Street Fighter IV.

Nick Heller: I’m currently playing FIFA 2010 and Batman: Arkham Asylum.

  1. Michael Aubuchon: I believe you’re multiplayer lead on Doom 4. I hope you’ll give Skulltag a try sometime, if you haven’t already.

    A lot of people weren’t able to enjoy classic Doom multiplayer back in the day (either too young, or didn’t have access to a lan/dwango back when people played it), and Skulltag makes it easy and accessible and modernizes some things without destroying the overall feel of the game.

    Seventeen years on, it’s still one of the finest multiplayer experiences ever.

    Fast, exciting, and perhaps most unusual in comparison with modern multiplayer FPS, *hilarious*, due to the pure ridiculousness of situations you find yourself in.

    Yes FALLOUT WANDERER’S EDITION is metal postcard hardcore. A hot machine gun burn to the skin to cautarize a mind gone numb from a killing wound of boredom. I must prepare for the FWE Injection :D Havent played it in awhile so i might give this latest version a try this weekend. All the new stuff sounds pretty interesting. Thanks for the link Mr.Brigner :D

    Still enjoying my SUPREME COMMANDER 2 obssesion. Have yet to get past the Cybran campaign. Didnt check out skirmish mode yet since the campaign is so much fun and i dont want to ruin the surprise of any new units that have yet to show up like that DEVIL DINOSAUR looking lizard war machine.

    Enjoying a new mod setup of individually selected mods mostly retextures and some AlienSlof works in OBLIVION since my luck with overhauls has been lame lately.

    Also going to try to squeeze in some DRAGON AGE ORIGINS and LEFT4DEAD 2.

    I remember playing DOOM on dwango with my brother inlaw along with HERECTIC and it was amazing how complete and polished the multiplayer felt. It was just as action packed as the single player but in a different way due to constantly struggling to have the most frags. Talk about some great sunday afternoons with a peaceful afterglow the next day :)

  3. Just finished the CHAOS RISING expansion pack to DAWN OF WAR 2 this past Mothers Day. Truly a delicious consequances ending outcome worthy of the infernal devious powers of Chaos especially if one played as the good guy in the DAWN OF WAR 2 original. Now to see what happens if i resist the..temptation.

    Other stuff am playing:

    OBLIVION with OSCURO’S OBLIVION OVERHAUL
    RISEN thats one great soundtrack there
    LEFT4DEAD 2 The Passing level
    SUPREME COMMANDER 2
    FALLOUT 3 with the FWE mod
