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.

Perry Jackson – Been playing some of the Shadow Hunters DLC for Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet for review which should hopefully be out shortly, it’s pretty hard by yourself! Other than that, been going through the archives ranging from Super Mario Galaxy 2 to Mega Man 3 waiting patiently for Batman: Arkham City this Tuesday.

Ryan Reynolds – Still playing Gears of War 3 primarily. Making my way through the campaign on Insane with a co-op buddy right now. Looking forward to Batman: Arkham City this week and I also got invited to the Diablo III beta. Very excited to sit down and play it.

Jonathan Cole – I’ve been taking time to revisit some older games that I haven’t gotten a chance to check out or shelved after they lost my interest. I beat Vanquish early in the week, which proved to be a truly unique shooter. Now I’ve moved on to Fable III and Bastion, both of which I hope I can knock out pretty quickly.

John Drawdy – I have been all over the place this week, from old school classic Bubble Bobble to MLB Bobblehead Battle. I played a lot of Orcs Must Die!, finally getting to the end; now to just go back and five skull everything.

Nicholas DePetris – I’ve been playing Gears of War 3 and Outland, and I’m working on finishing Lego Indiana Jones with my girlfriend. I’m going to spend the weekend revisiting some games that I’m partway through, such as Brutal Legend and Saint’s Row. Gotta finish some of these up before the holiday releases hit!

James Heiger – Currently playing a lot of Sega Bass Fishing. I am working on a mini-guide which should be coming up soon!

Christine Mitchell – I picked up Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes in the recent sale and have been playing a lot of that. Very addictive. Also still loving Orcs Must Die!, and have been going back through that trying to get the 5 skulls achievement now.

Damon Fillman – I’m still hooked on Gears of War 3, but I’m also killing tons of orcs in Orcs Must Die! If you haven’t played that yet, I hope you SERIOUSLY consider it.

Todd Schlickbernd – After hours and hours of Orcs Must Die!, I picked Gears of War 3 back up for a short time until Dungeon Defenders came in, which I’ve since been playing to absolute death.
