It’s no surprise that our offices continue to obsess over StarCraft 2 (and still play World of Warcraft), but this week it’s Minecraft — a game that’s self described as being “about placing blocks while running from skeletons” — that’s getting highlighted. The latest version of the game is currently in Alpha and can be downloaded here. You can also play Minecraft Classic for free.
Here’s the full list of games we’re checking out. Now… what are YOU playing?
Peter Sokal: StarCraft 2, Darksiders, QUAKE LIVE, and potentially some Ikaruga.

Orin Tresnjak: StarCraft 2. Addictive game, that.
Jeff Browne: Minecraft and Red Dead Redemption.
