What we are playing is a weekly column published every Sunday in which various members of our team let the world know which games have had them hooked over the past week and which ones they’re looking forward to.
Ryan Reynolds- I have finally jumped on the Minecraft bandwagon. I picked up the Xbox 360 Edition of the game early in the week and I now know what all the fuss is about. I’m constantly thinking of what I need or want to do next. I’m not a very talented crafter yet, but the game is taking up a lot of my time, and I’m certainly enjoying myself.
Scott Waldyn- It’s begun. I’ve started my descent into Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor. Such a beautiful, vivid and potentially wondrous game designed around a device that can barely track my full-motion lever yanking and button pressing. How many times will I die of “smoke inhalation” (because the game doesn’t register my movements) before I give up? Only time will tell.
Nate Hubler- I’ve been playing two games recently. The first is Fallout 3 and is fantastic. I’ve invested the most time in sneak and lock picking and I’m having a total blast. The second game on the other hand is Battleship. It was at my local library so I chose to check it out based on the poor reviews. I must say it isn’t really horrible, but it is mediocre at the best of times. There are only 7 missions, I’ve done 5 so far, and most are a half hour long. However I’m playing through on hard and that games does in fact get brutally difficult in some points.
Sean Prideaux- My Darksiders “Apocalyptic” run though is going pretty well so far. It’s getting me psyched for Darksiders 2; even if I’m not likely to get it anytime soon. I also briefly headed back into the world of Guild Wars to check some stuff out and ready my Hall of Monuments for GW2 (another game I’m not likely to get soon). I’ve also played some of the Natural Selection 2 beta and Dust 514 beta; both of which are looking pretty good. Shame my net is up and down too much to make use of them though.
