What we are playing is a weekly column published every Sunday. Various members of the team let the world know which games have had them hooked over the past week and which they’re looking forward to.
Ryan Reynolds- I spent my day off this week replaying Episode One of The Walking Dead right before I sunk my teeth into Episode Two. I’m really enjoying the games and I’m looking forward to Episode Three. I also played quite a bit of Mass Effect 3 multiplayer. What did you guys think of the Extended Cut content? Finally, while I did start a Monk in Diablo 3 this week, I only played it for about 20 minutes. I think Diablo may take the cake for disappointment of the year.
Scott Waldyn- In my free time, I started playing the Dawnguard DLC for Skyrim. I haven’t gotten too horribly far in it, but from what I’ve played, I am definitely enjoying it. I love hunting me some vampires. Other than that, I played through Episode Two of The Walking Dead. While I loved Episode One, I thought this next installment was even better. It’s so drenched with tension and some tough choices.
Sean Prideaux- I also played The Walking Dead Episode 2 and it is easily making this series a strong contender for game of the year. On the other end of the spectrum I was “playing” Steel Battalion: Heavy Armour, the less said about it the better. Its also a good few weeks for 4x strategy games, I previewed Endless Space which is very good and out next Wednesday. Also I played the demo of the Gods and Kings Expansion for Civilization V; now I can’t play Civ until i buy it as the new stuff is amazing. I also picked up Shoot Many Robots on sale and its pretty fun.
Andy Tran- I finally sat down and sunk a few short hours into the Battlefield 3 campaign. It’s surprisingly good and on-par with Modern Warfare 3 and slightly better plot than Ghost Recon Future Soldier. If you own the game and like many others – just play it for the multiplayer I suggest making a pass at the campaign. It’s worth your time and quite challenging on hard difficulty – and also I needed to get the most out of it after spending an extra $50 on the “Premium Pack”.
