WRUP: melting faces edition


We're going to go out on a limb this week and guess that lots of our readers (and at least 2/3 of our bloggers) will be playing Guitar Hero III this weekend. That doesn't exactly make for a compelling edition of What Are You Playing, but what can you do? We suppose there might be a few folks out there rocking some Virtua Fighter 5 or The Simpsons or TimeShift, but we've learned not to underestimate the power of Guitar Hero III. Regardless, we are required by law* to ask you what you will be playing this weekend. So, what will you be playing this weekend?

*Our lawyers note that we are required by law to inform you that we are not required by law to ask you the above question.*

*Our lawyers said no such thing. Nevertheless, we feel it necessary to inform you that the above statement and the statement to which it refers are, in fact, jokes.

I'll be playing some GH2, yes, GH2, since I just got it.

Now... my question to yous is... what kind of psychopath can actually play on Expert? i can't even seem to play on hard. is it just that I need a lot more practice?

started Jordon on Expert and it blew my mind. I even went into practice on slowest and I couldn't fathom how someone could do that.

Those responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked, have been sacked.

Practice and you'll be okay -- if you just play for an unhealthy amount of time every day in a few weeks you'll be rocking Expert too!

guess i'm in that 3rd of your readers who won't be doing up GH3.

i WILL however be playing orange box (just beat portal the other night, effin awesome game). so i'll go back to HL2 and picked up the Simpsons game. and its actually a lot of fun, gameplay isnt anything to write home about, but for a long time fan it is pure genius.

once cod4 hits though...

Teh Halo 3, of course, and some Puzzle Quest. I'm debating whether to pick up GH3 today... I'm just hesitant to purchase anything with Mass Effect 3 weeks away.

I've been without a system for a week. I just got my new Holiday Bundle Elite. My old system is now in the hands of my girlfriend who has enjoyed GH3 and is bringing to me this weekend.

Looks like GH3, Orange Box, and Halo 3 for me this weekend. I might check out Forza 2 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance since I now have those in my library.

Everyone have a great weekend and be safe!

Nothing really on 360. I might pick up Hellgate: London today. I would like to see that hit 360, personally.

Maybe some Lord of the Rings Online too.

Just finished all the OB has to offer and I'm getting bored with both Halo and TF multiplayer.

I'll be playing Dementium on my DS this weekend.

I would LIKE to be playing Ace Combat 6 or TimeShift but neither are "must buys" in my opinion. They're definite bargain bin titles or rentals if I can find them but they aren't begging me to drop $60. Well, maybe AC is if I get bored. Some Live dogfighting would be awesome.

I'll be playing TimeShift! This game is awesome, the campaign atleast. Online is so dead it's not even funny. It's disappointing.

But the campaign is awesome. You have to be smart with your time powers to hide, recharge your health, fight enemies and even solve some not so obvious puzzles(crates on conveyor belt, anyone?)

So yeah. Timeshift FTW. And maybe I'll force myself to play some more Blue Dragon. Even though I hate Blue Dragon...it's so long. Maybe I'll sell it.
