More On: What we're playing

Ben Berry - Staff Writer

I'm not doing any gaming at all this weekend. I'm doing everything else I need to get done before Rock Band and Mass Effect come out. Cleaning the living room, getting the carpet cleaned, cleaning the garage, you name it. Gotta have a clean house before I start living the rock n' roll lifestyle next week

Ample amounts of Call of Duty 4, College Football, and Assassins Creed. The girlfriend and I might head over to Bed, Bath, and Beyond, but I'm not sure. I don't know if we will have time.

As the dutiful Nintendo fan, I've been soaring through the heavens in Super Mario Galaxy.  Needless to say it's quite good, but it hasn't blown me away yet the way Twilight Princess or  Metroid Prime 3 did.  This is surprising, becuase is has the most jaw-dropping graphics I've seen on the Wii.  Maybe it's because everything is oversaturated with candy colors, but that doesn't change the fact that Nintendo has pulled off some miracles with their little puddle-jumper of a console.  As far as Galaxy goes, the question isn't whether or not you should buy it, just if it's ultimately better than Mario 64.

I'm swearing an oath on the Assassin's Creed!  The crusades must be stopped!  Le Parkour for the win!  The Holy Land is my playground!  God knows your lonely soul!  The streets will flow with the blood of the non-believers!

Dan Keener- Staff Writer
This week on the 360 I am playing Viva Piñata Party Animals, Shrek N Roll, Call of Duty 4, and Halo 3.  Last week of College Football, so game playing should pick up a bit after that.

Matt Mirkovich - Staff Writer
So before the weekend arrived I was able to beat Call of Duty 4, Guitar Hero 3, and Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions. Now that I get to fly home for the holidays I'm going to be working on Front Mission, Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker, and Fullmetal Alchemist Card Game all on the DS. When the lights go out though it's time for more Silent Hill Origins. That butcher is mighty creepy, but he's no pyramid head.

Umm.. I'll be doing something Massively Effective this weekend.. or maybe I won't.

Rachel Steiner - Staff Writer
Still on and on with the Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker. Synthesizing monsters, levelling up, and saving the world is the place for me!

Charles Husemann - Editor in Chief
After finally finishing Conan this week I'm going to be devoting all my gaming energies into Uncharted: Drake's Fortune which appeared on my doorstep today.  Between gaming breaks I'll probably try to get in a little Witcher action and get in a little time with Call of Duty 4.  I'll also be resisting the urge to sneak over to Shawn's house and liberate what-ever may be Effecting him this weekend.

John Yan - Sr. Hardware Editor
I'm going in deep and going in hard with Call of Duty 4. If Crysis comes in I'm definitely going to make time for that.  Also, I'm going to try a little Scene It? Lights Camera Action for a change of pace.
