What we’re playing


This week’s “What We’re Playing” looks pretty similar to recent weeks. Halo: Reach, NCAA Football 11, Civ 5, Minecraft, and StarCraft 2 remain amongst the most popular picks. With more and more fall titles releasing (including the recent release of Dead Rising 2), the list is bound to have a major shakeup soon.

    Wonder how many of these i’ll still be playing when FALLOUT: NEW VEGAS shows up in the stores 😀

  2. My games are Dead Rising 2, Bioshock, and Resident Evil 5 Gold with PS Move.
    I should be getting my Platinum trophy in DR2 this week 😀

  3. Uncharted 2, oblivion, fallout 3 (even though I don’t have it anymore because I had it for 360 and sold it when I got rrod) gta4, kingdom hearts, prototype and I know I’m not gonna be able to put down New Vegas!!!

  4. i’ve got to finish Claptrap’s Robot Revolution (probably the best plot-based DLC for what’s just a shoot-em-up game) and my Fallout 2 char. my two Shadowrun characters are doing nicely. (tip: if you want a gang to move out of a sweet building, an armed attack VTOL makes a great motivator.)

    Bad Company 2 is still plenty of fun to play with friends, but now i’m waiting for any scrap of BF3 that might be out there… Medal of Honor T1 MP looks like a Modern Warfare 2 clone, no squads, and that’s unacceptable – looks like I’ll just be checking out the single player campaign.
