The staff is still mopping up the back log from 2011's Fall rush of gaming. It's ok, sometimes what needs to be done needs to be done. And with things this spring looking like they are clearing out and moving later and later...well...lets just say we might be able to ease up on the pedal a bit for trying to burn through the backlog.
I'd also like to welcome our new News Editor, Chris Metz, to the staff this week as well as a new baby in the Co-Optimus family as Andrew and his wife gave birth to a little lady named Arya. Congrats!
Nick "bapenguin" Puleo - "I know I said it last week, but perhaps this is the weekend I finally finish Saints Row the Third."
Marc "DjinniMan" Allie - "I will be playing more Lord of the Rings War in the North, and probably some NFL Blitz, as well."
Andrew "Cubninja" Gaskill - "We're adjusting to life with our new baby, which means midnight gaming for me. I've been screwing around with The Darkness, Shadows of the Damned, and Skyrim."
Mike "Pheriannath" Katsufrakis - "I started a new character in Skyrim. I have a problem."
Paul "EastX" Acevedo - "I'll play some more Onechanbara Z: Kagura and Rayman Origins, plus maybe another random game or two. I really should go back and finish my second playthrough of Batman: Arkham Asylum so I can finally start on Arkham City. But will I do it?"
Jason "OrigamiPanther" Love - "Snake here... Operation "Beat Mike Golf Sierra Papa Whiskey Hotel Delta" is nearing its conclusion... I should be ok as long as- !"
Eric "smurphster" Murphy - "I'll be working on my backlog the best I can. Halo: CE Anniversary is still at the top and Bulletstorm is up next but I'm sure you can persuade me to play Gears of War 3 or Dungeon Defenders."
Tally "xelissa" Callahan - "I'll be catching up on my backlog as I anticipate a bunch of new games at the end of January/ beginning of February."
Sam "Samoza" Tyler - "I plan to get on with some Batman: Arkham City and then perhaps play some local XBLA co-op games."
Locke Vincent - "I finally finished Deus Ex Revolution so it is on to something new and exciting, feeling a little gaming choice paralysis. I can always turn to rhe Elemental: Fallen Enchantress beta, as it has its hooks in me and I'm sacrificing sleep to play 'just one more turn'."
How about you, Co-Optimus Community? What will you be playing this weekend?
