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. Keep up with the rest of our writers’ chatter by following each individual staff member on Twitter. Do us a favor and follow us @XKFans while you’re at it too.
Andy Tran- I’ve been really getting into Borderlands 2. The game is such an improvement from the previous installment. I have the PC version along with an Nvidia GPU. The PhysX is a great addition and just a small thing that makes the game that much more amazing.
Ryan Reynolds- Well, for starters, I finished Rage. And discovered that it had an extremely disappointing ending and the whole game’s story goes no where. Then I played the Resident Evil 6 demo. While Leon’s scenario was entertaining enough, Chris and Jake’s were dubious messes. Some serious questions need to be asked about some of the game’s mechanics and design choices. I’m hoping the final game holds up better when everything is pieced together.
Sean Prideaux- Torchlight 2 released this week. Its certainly Torchlight but with new classes and with friends. Single player is decent and worth getting into, if only to play with your friends. I hit 80 in Guild Wars 2 and stopped playing a day or two after. I will go back to it but I got a little burnt out.
Ryan Fennel- My time was equally split between XBLA and Borderlands 2. Borderlands 2 is exactly what I thought it would be. The game is incrementally better than its predecessor in about every single way. On the XBLA front, I split my time between Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Minecraft, and Joe Danger 2. I fear that the community surrounding CS:GO may already be dieing. It is sad since it is a great game. I highly encourage all of you to go out and support this title. You will always have me to team up with!
Nate Hubler- This week I barely had to game at all. But when I did I progressed slightly farther in Warp. I also picked up the Humble Bundle 6 which I can’t wait to get in to even though my backlog is still filled with Xbox games and Android Humble Bundle 3 titles.
Scott Waldyn- I was superbly busy this week, but I managed to snag Dragon’s Lair (on sale) and give it a go. I tried it Kinect-style, and I realized I may be a little too slow to the punch for helping Dirk Daring save the princess. It’s fun if you’re looking for a quick adventure, but it feels a bit repetitive too.
