I've been knocked down for the count with some sort of strange African virus this week and it sounds like Mike has contracted it as well. Perhaps, just to be safe, you avoid playing any games in co-op with either of us. The rest of the staff, those healthy bastards, will be enjoying plenty of gaming this weekend.
Nick "bapenguin" Puleo - "I'll be attempting to keep both of my lungs. In between coughing fits I'll be finishing up Deus Ex and wrapping up War in the North."
Marc "DjinniMan" Allie - "..."
Andrew "Cubninja" Gaskill - "I'm going to try to blast through the main campaign in Skyrim, revisit Shadows of the Damned, school Locke in Twisted Metal (I don't need no reverse!), and try that Syndicate demo again, this time with a friend (or three). And Dark Souls. Always Dark Souls."
Mike "Pheriannath" Katsufrakis - "Like Nick, I'm pretty sick, so I'll be taking it easy. If I feel up to gaming, I'll probably play a little more of KoA: Reckoning."
Paul "EastX" Acevedo - "The famous EastX will be going after the last 2 Achievements in Choplifter HD, plus cruising through Neverdead for next week's review. He'll also stare longingly at Final Fantasy XIII-2, wishing for the time to play it"
Jason "OrigamiPanther" Love - "Half of my weekend will be spent working, but with the other half I hope to play more Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and Shank 2. I also want to get some more time in with the Syndicate demo, so LFG for Colonel Enrico Gabron raid."
Eric "smurphster" Murphy - "My Dungeon Defenders itch needs to be scratched and Kid still needs to save the Bastion. I'll probably squeeze in a few more rounds of the Syndicate demo as well."
Sam "Samoza" Tyler - "I'm almost done with the cruelly ignored RAGE and will partake of some more Call of Juarez: The Cartel - a game so flawed, that its kind of fun."
Locke Vincent - "It's a backlog weekend for me. I'll be playing many hours of Heroes of Might & Magic VI accompanied by Just Cause 2 and Final Fantasy 13. "
Tally "xelissa" Callahan - "I will be plugging away at The Darkness 2 for review on Monday."
How about you, Co-Optimus Community? What will you be playing this weekend?
