What we are playing: Week of August 7
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.
Steve Melton – I took a break from the 360 this week to take a trip down memory lane. In the course of three days I played through Star Trek: Voyager: Elite Force, an amazing FPS set in a captivating universe. Highly recommended. Still workin’ through Beyond Good & Evil HD as well.
John Laster – Finished my move. Honestly, I would rather have been moving mountains or slicing fruit.
Nathan Bowring – After a week of surgery and recovery (shout out to Ernesto!), I get to go back to gaming. Playing Assassin’s Creed II, Halo: Reach, and a certain upcoming Kinect game. Kinect is never a good idea after surgery, no matter how addicting and fun.
Jonathan Cole – Like John, I’m moving out of the house and thus much of my time has been spent on getting everything together and ready to roll out. Aside from that, I’ve been busting my backlog to bits by finishing Bulletstorm, restarting Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and beginning Final Fantasy IX on my shiny new PSP Go.
John Drawdy – Played a little bit of Torchlight finally getting the full 200g out of that and have been hard at work on a secret project.
