With a wait of more than a decade for a sequel, it’s no surprise that StarCraft 2′s release this week is a big deal at our offices. What does surprise me, however, is that more people have mentioned they’re playing Limbo — the creepy puzzle/platform title that’s getting a lot of buzz on Xbox LIVE Arcade. That being said, I’m sure we’ll be seeing StarCraft 2 on What We’re Playing for some time… probably until the year 2025.
Here’s the full run down of what we’re playing. Fee free to star with us the game’s you’re playing.
