Welcome back to Massively's What Are You Playing
, the game where we tell you what we're playing this weekend and you tell us that you really, really need a fat chocobo
to ride and nothing else will do. We're sure you're planning to ride it, not to put it in a fat microwave and see whether the Peep experiment scales up. For science
: I'll be trying to get a handle on my Therian Saga
account. I have four characters and just can't keep up. I need to choose one and have some fun. I also need some time in PlanetSide 2
, simply because I have been too busy writing on my soon-to-be-completed book to shoot some baddies. I'm also digging on TUG's
alpha and will be looking into Villagers and Heroes
: I'll probably go see Scarlet off in Guild Wars 2
-- we won't miss you, my dear! And I'm torn between checking out Path of Exile's
minispansion (totally a word) and availing myself of the XP piñata in Diablo III
: I'm on a bit of a low pulse with Final Fantasy XIV
right now, although I plan to log in to hit my Myth cap and such. I'm in the midst of another Mass Effect
playthrough for no real reason whatsoever except that I love the series and I felt like playing through again. Oh, and I did launch a brand-new project yesterday
, which should be of particular interest to people here, including anyone missing Storyboard
. Most of my immediate plans, however, involve taking advantage of better weather to hike out a mountain until I literally can hike no more... then going right back after a little food to do the same dang thing.
: Lots of iRacing
and Black Flag
going down at my house. And also a little bit of the sweet, sweet sandpark that is ArcheAge
. Can I say that? Yeah, I can say that because really, XL Games
. A year and nothing to show the West? Really?
I might continue dabbling in LotRO
too, but I've already hit the level cap prior to reaching the Westfold, so I guess I'll be running around doing Helm's Deep quests for no discernible rewards!
: Right now I'm engrossed in my Ranger's journey through Guild Wars 2
. It's been a while and I've missed many aspects of the game, so I'll be pew-pewing things across the landscape while I cross the final stretch to 80. Other gaming prospects include The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 2, exploring Enedwaith in Lord of the Rings Online
, and maybe even reviving an old RIFT
character or two.
: This weekend, I will spend most of my time on the Star Wars: The Old Republic
test center. I have plans to play the new Tython and Korriban flashpoints multiple times to not only understand the mechanic but gather the information about the story so that I can incorporate it into the my characters' storyline.
: I've gotten my kill Flappy achievement on my Templar in The Secret World
, so I will be trying to finish that up on my Illuminati. Then I have to figure out what to spend all those fragments and slivers on! Other than that, I will be puttering around the Massively Golden Yacht in EverQuest Next Landmark
and enjoying wandering aimlessly around a certain Russian beta soaking up its awesomeness. As requested, I'll also be checking out the Dominion side of WildStar
in a livestream today.
At the start of every weekend, we catch up with the Massively staff members and ask them, "What are you playing this week?" (Otherwise known as: WRUP!) Join us to see what we're up to in and out of game -- and catch us in the comments to let us know what you're playing, too!
