While humanity sent a robot the size of a jeep to Mars this week, most of our gaming feats look pale in comparison. Sure some of us are finally wrapping up some backlog titles, but....we put a giant friggin robot on Mars. Luckily you can too with the free Xbox 360 game where you do the same. None of us are playing that though.
Also - this is your weekly reminder to download (rate and purchase too) SCHAR: Blue Shield Alliance on Xbox Live Indie Games. Do it...because if you don't, alien babies will die a cruel death.
Nick "bapenguin" Puleo (@NickPuleo) - "I've said it for the past few weeks, but it looks like I'm at the ending for Mass Effect 3. So that's what I'll be doing."
Andrew "Cubninja" Gaskill (@cubninja) - "I plan on finally completing Diablo 3 on Normal, then never playing it again. Then I'll try to last longer than four minutes in Modern Warfare 3's Chaos mode. Finally, the wife and I will continue our latest trek through Borderlands. "
Mike "Pheriannath" Katsufrakis (@Pheriannath) - "I'll be working on taking my fighting game skills online in Persona 4 Arena. It's a game that shouldn't exist at all, but it's magnificent."
Marc "DjinniMan" Allie (@DjinniMan) - "After over a year of failure, my son and I will continue our quest to get past level 5-3 in Lost Planet 2. Even on Easy, it's rough. Or maybe we just suck."
Jason "OrigamiPanther" Love (@JLove55) - "I'll be playing some more The Secret World and A Virus Named TOM as I attempt to dethrone as many of the game dev's high scores as possible."
Paul "EastX" Acevedo (@SegaCon) - "I'll be enjoying Dust: An Elysian Tale, the best game in this year's Summer of Arcade lineup, as well as Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise, LEGO Batman 2, and Bejeweled 3."
Eric "smurphster" Murphy (@smurph_em)- "I'm helping my wife shoot a wedding tomorrow, so no gaming, but there is co-op involved! On Sunday, Tally and I are playing some Left 4 Dead 2 (PC), which you'll hear about in next week's TWIC."
Sam "Samoza" Tyler (@reelsamtyler) - Is lost in the Olympic Crowds
Locke Vincent (@LockeVincent) - "Mass Effect 3 multiplayer has sunk its teeth back in, call me in 3 days. "
Tally "xelissa" Callahan - "A little L4D2 like Eric said and poking through the backlog (some RTSs might be fun)."
Chris "The Lemko" Metz (@The_Lemko) - "Cold Stream and Awesomenauts are on my to do list, but I also want to download Hero Academy on Steam to unlock the TF2 team on my phone; very excited about this."
What are you going to be playing?
