This is a new piece we’re starting to let our readers know what we have been playing for fun over the past week.

John Laster – I’m playing Outland, or at least I will be once I can stop staring at how pretty it is. Also big thanks to all you guys who came out and played Hydro Thunder Hurricane with us yesterday!

Steve Melton – Just finished The Da Vinci Disappearance DLC for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. Going to get back into Crazy Taxi and Rock Band 3 for a while until I can get Portal 2 on sale.

Tyler Cameron Since I’m too poor for anything good in retail right now (*sigh* one day, Mortal Kombat and Portal 2) and I’m still waiting for my wife to decide she wants to play the Gears of War 3 BETA with me, it’s been all XBLA for me. I’m still enjoying Section 8: Prejudice very much, but I got back in to playing Battlefield 1943 and Hydro Thunder Hurricane. I also picked up Banjo Kazooie on sale this week, rekindling my love for old Rare games. Afting that, I plan on digging in to the beautiful looking Outland.

Kaitlyn Chantry – I’m taking a break from Dragon Age 2 to play Another World on a DOS emulator. I’m gearing up for this summer’s release of From Dust by playing Chahi’s 1991 masterpiece. So excellent!

Andrew Crews – This week I finally finished up the Lode Runner DLC and it was literally the worst thing I have played on the Xbox 360. I also took a few hours and played through Nin2-Jump which is a fun little game that supports a great cause. At only 400MS points, everyone should buy this game.

Ross Adams – Finished Bulletstorm and Portal 2, one was substantially better than the other. Still playing lots of Mortal Kombat but my weekend will also be filled with Outland and Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes, which I finally got round to buying.

Jonathan Cole – Almost finished plowing through Section 8: Prejudice campaign mode while also spending a bit of time with the great multiplayer. Rented Mortal Kombat for the weekend and having a blast with it, despite my total worthlessness with fighting games. Finally, continuing my Dwarf Noble playthrough of Dragon Age.

Damon Filman – I’ve spent this week finishing up Portal 2; I’m really close to the end now and have loved everything so far. I will be ditching the Xbox briefly this weekend to play the next episode of the Back to the Future game.

James Heiger – I have been playing Catan with my friends.  Its a great way to make them not my friends anymore

John Drawdy – This week has been completely taken up by the Gears of War 3 BETA which I am loving oh so very much. I also have found a few minutes here and there for the campaign in Section 8: Prejudice, not to bad so far.
