Our Weekend In Gaming: When the Boss Is Away Edition

After almost three and a half years, our ever faithful and totally fearless leader Nick is taking some time off for a well-deserved vacation.  While he unlocks achievements like "Made a Sand Castle" and "Forgot Suntan Lotion", the rest of the Co-Opticrew are getting in some gaming this weekend, instead.  Maybe it won't be quite so nice as the beach, but it's still a grat way to relax and unwind.

Nick "bapenguin" Puleo - "I'm on the beach!"

Marc "DjinniMan" Allie"We're having company over and the game room will get a big workout: my MAME cabinet, Road Blasters, pool table, ping pong, etc.  For the rest of the weekend, League of Legends and some Humble Indie Bundle stuff."

Mike "Pheriannath" Katsufrakis - "I'm traveling this weekend with little time for games, unfortunately. However, I've been playing Diablo 2 on with a friend when time allows, so hopefully I'll get more of that in before I leave!"

Jim "txshurricane" McLaughlin - "I'm in the process of getting a new Android phone, so I'll be checking out the game offerings on the Market. I'm also thoroughly enjoying Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, and if I have time I'll play some Black Ops to test its connectivity on the Call of Duty Elite beta."

Andrew "Cubninja" Gaskill - "I'll try to get in a match with the Brink boys this weekend.  After that, Bastion is calling."

Tally "xelissa" Callahan - "I'll be playing more League of Legends as well as some E.Y.E Divine Cybermancy for review."

Paul "EastX" Acevedo - "Jeez, I hope I get to play something this weekend. I have to work on weekends, so it's hard to squeeze gaming in sometimes. Will at least be seeing the Smurfs with the family (not looking forward to the film). On the plus side, having lunch with someone from Twisted Pixel in Austin on Thursday!
