What we are playing is a weekly column that appears each weekend. Various staff members let the world know what games had them hooked the past week and which ones they look forward to.

John Laster – I’m playing some Uncharted 3 while taking breaks to level my Dungeon Defenders characters to 70. I got some sweet loot after playing with Trendy Entertainment during their community night. Also, check out DLC Quest. Best thing I’ve bought for a buck in a long time.

Perry Jackson – Not much XBLA but after blowing through the Uncharted 3 campaign, I’ve been digging through the multiplayer which is surprisingly deep. Managed to rank up a lot in my plays and looking forward to playing more. Now just give me Skyrim!

Ryan Reynolds – I just started the Grubbins on Ice add-on for Costume Quest and I’ve been busy playing Battlefield 3. I’m still dabbling in Gears of War 3, and I have Uncharted 3 waiting for me. The list of games I need to play through a second time is rapidly growing.

James Heiger – I played through DLC Quest. That is highly recommended. I also started Hydrophobia which I picked up on sale a while back.

Todd Schlickbernd – On the XBLA side I just picked up Guardian Heroes after a friend came over and we played together. It’s more fun than I thought it was, just not really a solo game. Once you’ve got a friend to play with it really is a lot more enjoyable. Other than that, just playing League of Legends and randomly increasing my completion rate in Saints Row 2 for some reason.

Nathan Bowring – Unfortunately, I haven’t been playing much of anything. Unless you count the Netflix app on Xbox Live. The Walking Dead is amazing by the way.

Nicholas DePetris – I’ve got an epic dance battle coming up the first weekend in December so I’ve been prepping by playing Dance Central 2. I cannot dance at all but it’s still a great time. I’ve also been finishing up Batman: Arkham Asylum and Torchlight, and started out Lego Star Wars. Finally, I’m starting up a new game of Saints Row 2 as I type this. So not a whole lot of XBLA but it has been a game-heavy week.

Damon Fillman – Ever since I saw the trailer for GTAV, I’ve had a sudden urge to play through the fourth iteration of the series, so I’ve been doing that. I know a lot of people dislike the game, but I consider it one of the best games ever made. Simply astounding. In the XBLA world I’ve been failing miserably at keeping orcs away from my portals in Orcs Must Die!
