Our Weekend in Gaming - Abracadabra Edition

It seems the majority of the staff is hooked on Magicka and with good reason.  There's just something addictive about its co-op action and spell weaving - and something satisfying about exploding trolls into tiny bits.  Also shrubberies.  

Nick "bapenguin" Puleo - "I'll be haunted by Dead Space 2 this weekend with a bit of Magicka to help lighten the mood."

Marc "DjinniMan" Allie - "I will actually have some time for video gaming this weekend.  Right now I'm checking out About A Blob for review, plus we will flail about uncontrollably playing Dance Central a bit as well.  Also some LittleBIGPlanet 2."

Mike "pheriannath" Katsufrakis - "I've been pecking away at trying to finish Dragon Age: Origins before the sequel is released, but I've also been bitten by the Dawn of War 2 bug again, so I'll see about plowing through Chaos Rising with a co-op partner."

Sam "Samoza" Tyler - "A quiet weekend on the gaming front for me as I continue to tackle my backlog; this includes single play Medal of Honor and Co-op Transformers: War for Cybertron."

Andrew "Cubninja" Gaskill - "My sister is in town. She's the rugged, outdoorsy type. (She doesn't own a tv.) I will be hiking in the mountains around the Coachella Valley all weekend.  I did get her to play some Kinect Sports, which we enjoyed. I'll try to sqeeze in some DCUO."

Tally "xelissa" Callahan - "Some Magicka for me as well as well as continuing to unlock more cards from Magic: the Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers Expansion Pack 3."

Jim "txshurricane" McLaughlin - "I'm looking down the barrel of a busy weekend, so my time will be limited to Call of Duty: Black Ops in its various forms, and hopefully a return to Comic Jumper and Army of Two: The 40th Day."

Jason "Origami Panther" Love - "A lot of possibilities for gaming this weekend. Probably a little more Dead Space 2 on my New Game+ and continuing to try and wrap up the misadventures of Japanese HS students in Persona 4. Hopefully getting in some co-op with Dawn of War 2 and Magicka as well."
