Want to know my favorite weapon for just about any online multiplayer game? The mute button.

In fact, it has become my best friend while playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. I've heard piercing sound effects, heavy swearing that would make a sailor blush and one player who insisted on singing Lady Gaga tunes.

On the one hand, it disrupts communication and planning with random squadmates in a team setting. But I'll accept the sacrifice if it means saving my ears from out-of-tune renditions of "Paparazzi."

With that song stuck in your heads (sorry!), here is my weekend gaming menu:

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2: Tried the Chopper Gunner killstreak reward for the first time recently. Loved it.

The Saboteur: There seems to be lots of baggage with this open-world, WWII action game, between the Pandemic studio consolidation and the bizarre DLC that adds nudity. We'll have a review next week.

Assassin's Creed II: Still haven't touched this game yet. Hoping to pull myself away from Modern Warfare 2 long enough to get started.

Tony Hawk: Ride: Why do I get the feeling I should prepare a bag of ice and some Tylenol after playing this?

Readers, your turn. What will you play this weekend?
