WRUP: Giant Robots for the Win Edition I knew prior to going to go to Pacific Rim that I was going to be a fan on some level. It promised to be dumb fun because I love huge robots, kaiju films and so I was thrilled. As it turned out, it was great fun and without the dread. It's not a scholarly film, but it's one that is full of love letters to the genres it inspired. There are homages but no need to dwell on the past. You can skip 3D because it didn’t use it to its greatest effect. But if you’re even remotely interested in the film, go take a look. It's worth every penny you'll spend and more. I could go on about the film I could wax poetic about the film, but WRUP isn't about the films we love to watch. It's all you need to know after you've gotten beyond the break. Feel free to let us know what you'll be playing on the weekend down in the comments. @Beau_Hindman: I'm something of a shooter nut lately, more so than I've ever been before. So I'll be spending time in PlanetSide 2, Defiance, and, most recently, Firefall which looks absolutely amazing. My wife has her gaming laptop, so we can play together and destroy things. It's not easy. I'll also be participating in RuneScape's Bacon Quest. It looks incredible, but the bacon jerky that they sent was incredibly bad. @nbrianna: I don't know where I'll be this weekend. Ultima Online will soon expire as well as my EVE Online Freebie has expired, and Guild Wars 2 has, according to some reports, devolved into an adventure involving jumping puzzles that have no exit. When World of Warcraft starts to look appealing again, I know I'm mad. Save me from the Steam summer sale! @PsykopigAU - I'm definitely going to Guild Wars 2 this weekend. However due to the frequent shutdowns of servers in the ocean I've been contemplating taking an hour or so to Star Wars: The Old Republic. It not only reminded me of the good times I had playing PVP on low ping servers and also how much I'm not playing the game anymore. @Eliot_Lefebvre - This is the last weekend of closed testing for Final Fantasy XIV so I'll be taking good care of. I have Star Wars: The Old Republic to finish before the next patch is released. I also have Star Wars: The Old Republic to complete, as well as a 3DS to play on. Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, Fire Emblem Awakening and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy are more enjoyable than any mobile game has any right to be. Runescape Wiki @irljasmine - Currently my gaming world revolves around Eorzea, my little archer. I am enjoying Final Fantasy XIV's A Realm Reborn beta quite a lot so I'll be taking in every bit of beta goodness I can. When it's time to get away from moogles, chocobos, I'll be trying to figure out how my town was constructed on top of so many fossils in Animal Crossing. It's an issue. @jefreahard: I'll be playing NCAA Football 14. Yes, I I am one of those guys. But, look at it this way. Georgia Tech will never win another national championship if it's not playing on another console. Oh and GT Legends is an old racing sim that I found on Steam. Best $2.49 I've ever spent. @MJ_Guthrie: I'm planning on getting the last of the guardian pets at The Secret World's anniversary celebration and I'll not leave until I get them! I'm just trying to get them all! I'm really only going to need two more (which unfortunately equates to many golem bosses). If I'm lucky, I might be able to join Fusang for my final one. Runescape Wiki If I manage to finish my set before the weekend ends, I will go weave some songs with my Songweaver Aion. I'll most likely go back to TSW for more golems. @RichieProcopio - This weekend, I'll be playing Guild Wars 2. This new-fangled achievement reward system has really tinkered with my OCD tendencies. I now think of the game as a long achievement meter that has to be full to the max. When I cross the finish line there's a hellfire helmet waiting for my Norn to don it and soak in the warmth. Things got a little awkward did they not? @Epykbeard - I'll be playing plenty of Wurm Online and some PlanetSide 2 to mix the games. Spartacus Legends is a favorite of mine on the Xbox and I'm hoping to play it for the rest of my life. Of course the Steam summer sale will make a mess of all these plans and I'll wind playing something new that everyone else beats three months ago, such as BioShock Infinite.
