Ben Berry - Staff Writer/RROD Survivor
I'll finally be finishing BioShock this weekend now that my 360 is back. Also, I'll be delving further into NHL 08.
Elliot Bonnie-Staff Writer/Newly minted Sony Fanboy
This weekend I am exploring the world of Half Life 2 in the Orange Box for Xbox 360... as a big console gamer now I finally know what all the hype was about. This is one of the best games I have ever played and I haven't even touched the other games included in this collection. We also may see the resurrection of a Sony fanboy as I plan on purchasing a PS3.
Randy Kalista - Staff Writer/Still has Big Daddy issues
Sorry, I'm a storyboard whore, so I gave up pretty quickly on the Halo 3 boomfest -- that song's played out its hook (but I understand that I'm in the minority). So I'm going back to where it's hotter under the water, under the sea, with BioShock. I'm also comparing the dismal lack of gameplay differences between the hunter, the martial artist, and the friar in The Chosen: Well of Souls .
Matt Mirkovich - Staff Writer/Portal Problems
I picked up Orange Box so I will be playing some sweet sweet Portal in an effort to get my cake. There better be a cake at the end. I've also got Final Fantasy Tactics on my PSP now, happy days. I guess I'll try to get the last couple of achievements in BioShock, damn you Sander Cohen you ruin everything!
Tyler Sager - Senior Staff Writer/Intergalactic fever
I am still working Sins of a Solar Empire and an as-yet-to-be-named title, all the while trying not to let myself download Puzzle Quest for the PC.
Charles Husemann - Editor In Chief/Freeman complex
I've already kicked the tires on Team Fortress 2 so my weekend will be spent playing through Half Life 2: Episode 2 and trying to get Portal running on my machine. I also have a feeling I'll be doing a little fragging in the Unreal Tournament III Beta/Demo.
John Yan - Senior Hardware Editor/Ant Lion-phobic
I'm going to try and get as much of Half-Life 2: Episode 2 out of the way as I can and maybe hit some Portal if I have t he time. With the release of the Unreal Tournament III demo, I'm going to put the new Microsoft mouse through it's paces on that as welll.
