What are you playing: Beta Version

We ask Shackers to test our latest beta release of What Are You Playing? (Note: Online experience has not been rated.) So tell us, what are you up to this weekend?

7

A quick and early "Happy Independence Day" to all Americans around the world. For those with Monday off, that means an extra day of gaming. What are you up to this weekend?

(Click any editor's name to visit their Twitter page. Follow Shacknews on Twitter for regular updates and giveaways.)

  • Garnett Lee: If some holidays known for over-eating, this weekend begs for over-gaming. Uncharted 3 beta, Trenched, Dungeon Siege III for starters and then catch up, maybe Crysis 2? Oh, and finally wrap up my Torchlight XBLA play through.

  • Xav de Matos: Lots of Uncharted 3, Journey, Shadows of the Damned, Child of Eden, and my favorite game, Sleep!

  • Andrew Yoon: I am going to spend so much time playing Uncharted 3 and Journey.

  • Alice O'Connor: I'm spending much of my weekend on the move, so it'll be Cut the Rope and Grand Prix Story for me, games-wise.

  • Jeff Mattas: With an extra-long weekend ahead of me, I’ll be spending a lot of time at the beach. I’ll still have plenty of time for the likes of Shadows of the Damned, Frozen Synapse, and the Witcher 2. Might even upgrade my operating system.

  • Steve Watts: [Testing the beta version of 'Vacation']

  • Ozzie Mejia: After a week of birthday-related shenanigans, I'll be spending the weekend with the Team Fortress 2 Uber Update and Really Big Sky.

        Remember: Claim they lie, then backpaddle with B, that will give you a better idea about the evidence you need to show or whether you have it at all (in which case you Doubt).

      Playing Thief: Deadly Shadows with widescreen hack and high-res textures.

      Hmm, a mysterious ship has drifted into the Docks without a crew!

        i always seem to fail when trying to get the hack to work, seems to muck up control customisation or something. Great game though!

      The Witcher 2, which sucks, and Star Wars Battlefront II, which owns!

      I'm playing FF4: The After Years (as part of the FF4 Complete Collection on the PSP). Spent all of last week beating FF4, doing the extra dungeons and the Interlude story.

      Crysis 2, and maybe some Rift. These Steam sales are killing me... I have such a backlog of unplayed games it isn't funny!

      Got my 3DS, so I'll be hoofing it on BlazBlue and Street Fighter. Recently wrapped up Shadows of the Damned, and as usual, playing a spot of Black Ops multiplayer.

      After finishing Dragon Age 2, I had a desire to go back to play the older RPGs I never got a chance to check out. I've been playing Baldur's Gate 1 and 2, and Neverwinter Nights 2. Also playing Duke Nukem forever, which I'm not finding to be anywhere near as bad as, at least reviewers, have been saying.
