Also, it’s What Are You Playing, you know how this works by now. Let us know what you’re playing in the comments down below!
Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): I’ll likely be working on the new house a ton this weekend, but if I get any gaming time, I have Trove and Marvel Heroes waiting for me, plus my Ultima Online account is on to rescue my house and qualify for the free expansion!
Jef Reahard (@jefreahard): I dunno. My The Elder Scrolls Online reinstall lasted for about two days, and neither Lord of the Rings Online nor Star Wars: The Old Republic are doing it for me right now. I may do some crafting in EverQuest II, or I may just make this an MMO-free weekend.
Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): My SWTOR Bounty Hunter is now in Act 2, so I want to keep the momentum going with her. Also, I want to become a cow in Project Gorgon. However, with Odin’s Bounty active in Marvel Heroes, I predict that any non-superhero plans will get derailed right quick.
Larry Everett (@Shaddoe, blog): I am currently rebuilding my guild’s website, rules, and roleplay. I’ve officially taken on leadership of the guild, not just filling in. So that kind of stuff will take up the crux of my weekend. If you’re interested in popping back into Star Wars: The Old Republic, you can join me if you like. Our guild does a bit of everything. We’re smaller, but we do have a max XP boost and a flagship.
MJ Guthrie (@MJ_Guthrie, blog): I am deeply immersed in a new game called Family Vacation, grinding out the achievement “see as much of Ireland as possible” this weekend! The graphics here are stunning, real high quality. And oh man, the shinies! If I end up in a place with WiFi by the end of the night I will pop into ARK: Survival Evolved to check on my dinosaurs, but that’s about it for me.
Tina Lauro (@purpletinabeans): I’ll be catching up with Guild Wars 2 now that I’m finally back to my gaming PC! I was really missing my own games and characters while I was away, despite all the fun stuff I got to play during the event.
Pierre: I made the mistake of watching some Skyforge streams and it made me want to check if this game works for me, so Skyforge it will be this weekend. I also felt compelled to go back to Final Fantasy XI (yes XI, no missing V at the end here) and I’m enjoying it. Of course, it’s ugly when compared with FFXIV but I find the quest lines more interesting, I feel more invested in the lore, and I feel the game is more challenging than its younger brother. But I may be partial in my judgment because FFXI was my very first MMO, and I had such a good time gathering so many joyful memories playing this game…
