WRUP: where did it go edition


Whilst preparing to write this very post, we realized that last week had no What Are You Playing at all. Yes, we forgot about it entirely. We realize that many of you out there must have been shocked, perhaps even hurt. For that, we apologize. Please forgive us for our egregious error and help us atone for our mistake. There, with that out of the way, it's time for us to ask: what will you be playing this weekend?

Just rented ME. Hoping to enjoy it while the ice storm blows across Oklahoma this weekend. It's going to be a great weekend for gaming.

Mass Effect, unless Jade Empire calls too heavily, and I may switch to that, but I need to try and get jiggy with Liara, w00t!!

Oh, and maybe Project Gotham 3 (hey, I'm a 360 nube, and at 20 bucks it's better than 60 for PG 4! :P)

I rented ME

He's probably exploiting Blockbuster's "no late fees" policy to keep it for upwards of 44 days...

"can be beaten" sure. You can just focus on the main storyline and complete that part. But if you factor in the side-quests that most people would do, then you're looking at well over 40 hours of game in there. Oblivion is the same way. Some might focus on the main quest and "beat" it quickly, but most people are going to take a lot longer.

Are you sure you're not thinking of a different game Mark? My first pass through Mass Effect I went out of my way to avoid the main storyline/work every side quest i could/explore every planet... and when all was said and done that game clocked in around 35 hours.... I imagine main storyline only couldn't possibly take more than 15-20hrs to complete max.

Lately, I've been going back and forth between Mass Effect and Rock Band. One friend comes over every once in a while to "rock out" and work on the band world tour. I'm sure this weekend will be no different.

Hopefully, I will be finally finishing off Overlord. I may also break open NFS:MW, better late than never. I really need to get into Mass Effect & Assassins Creed still. Plus, Timshift is gathering dust as well!

I'll probably finish up AC this weekend. I have Kane & Lynch and The Simpsons game collecting dust. I need to either play them or get them back to Gamefly.

I'm sure I'll be hitting up some Rock Band, AC, TF2, and Guitar Hero 3.

I actually wasted a couple of hours the other night coming up with a bio for my profile on XBL. I've been checking out my FoF lists and see that very few have done that yet.

Have a great weekend everyone and be safe.

I'm definitely playing ME, still working on all the Acheevers in Orange Box, Just got COD 4 and Just Cause (Dont laugh) on a nice CC-Meijer price match/Deal (Meijer - BOGO 39.99 game - Meijer matched CC's 39.99 COD4 special, I took Just Cause for the freebers)...

My bro is coming over with Ass's Creed, and I'm getting my copies of bioshock and Darkness back after not having em for months... Still havent beaten any of em... Need to get DLC for bioshock...

I am KING of half beaten video games (545/1000 on halo 3)
