WRUP: Better baby names edition

Argyle Farts. Mumu of the Pyramid People. Simon, Kyle, and Snorkums. Subject Name Here. Damp. I Have a Human Brain. Relogaz of the Sunless Sky, the Crawling Breath, and the Haze of Pain. Julia Roberts But Not The Julia Roberts. Longsword +1. Hurry Hurry Hurry. Genetic Payload. Mu.

Or just name your child after an entire song’s worth of lyrics. Suggestions include “Birdhouse in your Soul” by They Might Be Giants, “Machinehead” by Bush, and “Take it Outside” by Barenaked Ladies. Keep this in mind before you reproduce!

Also, it’s What Are You Playing, you know how this works by now. Let us know what you’re playing in the comments down below!

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): I’ll likely be working on the new house a ton this weekend, but if I get any gaming time, I have Trove and Marvel Heroes waiting for me, plus my Ultima Online account is on to rescue my house and qualify for the free expansion!

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog):I suppose I’m a big boringly predictable with Final Fantasy XIV and World of Warcraft, aren’t I? Fun just the same, though.

Jef Reahard (@jefreahard): I dunno. My The Elder Scrolls Online reinstall lasted for about two days, and neither Lord of the Rings Online nor Star Wars: The Old Republic are doing it for me right now. I may do some crafting in EverQuest II, or I may just make this an MMO-free weekend.

Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): My SWTOR Bounty Hunter is now in Act 2, so I want to keep the momentum going with her. Also, I want to become a cow in Project Gorgon. However, with Odin’s Bounty active in Marvel Heroes, I predict that any non-superhero plans will get derailed right quick.

Larry Everett (@Shaddoe, blog): I am currently rebuilding my guild’s website, rules, and roleplay. I’ve officially taken on leadership of the guild, not just filling in. So that kind of stuff will take up the crux of my weekend. If you’re interested in popping back into Star Wars: The Old Republic, you can join me if you like. Our guild does a bit of everything. We’re smaller, but we do have a max XP boost and a flagship.

MJ Guthrie (@MJ_Guthrie, blog): I am deeply immersed in a new game called Family Vacation, grinding out the achievement “see as much of Ireland as possible” this weekend! The graphics here are stunning, real high quality. And oh man, the shinies!  If I end up in a place with WiFi by the end of the night I will pop into ARK: Survival Evolved to check on my dinosaurs, but that’s about it for me.

Tina Lauro (@purpletinabeans): I’ll be catching up with Guild Wars 2 now that I’m finally back to my gaming PC! I was really missing my own games and characters while I was away, despite all the fun stuff I got to play during the event.

Pierre: I made the mistake of watching some Skyforge streams and it made me want to check if this game works for me, so Skyforge it will be this weekend. I also felt compelled to go back to Final Fantasy XI (yes XI, no missing V at the end here) and I’m enjoying it. Of course, it’s ugly when compared with FFXIV but I find the quest lines more interesting, I feel more invested in the lore, and I feel the game is more challenging than its younger brother. But I may be partial in my judgment because FFXI was my very first MMO, and I had such a good time gathering so many joyful memories playing this game…

Your turn!

peyo01 Loopstah “The only problem with FF XI is the mandatory subscription, making this game quite expensive for an older MMO.”

Funnily enough, i tried registering for the trial version of the game and apparently they are all out of keys…

Nordavind Did you know, some countries actually have laws… like a list of names that would not be legally recognized if you chose them. Always found that funny, baby names requiring government intervention.

I woulda joined up with Larry’s guild, but then I realised, you know, I have like no idea what server it’s on. I know, there’s only like 8, but it could be any one of them!

Bannex19  You can still like aspects of themeparks and still hate the themepark model at the same time.

Also there really aren’t any good sandboxes out yet that offer a compelling PvE experience.

My pigtails are the same color (or colour) as ham. But they’re kosher though…
…that said, yep almost forgot to post something here, as I’ve been distracted by indulging in a manga marathon…so was taking a break from the online gaming scene. But when I get back: WoW, TERA and WildStar  for me.
Have a great weeks! <3

MJ Guthrie LiKao This pretty much sums it up. I started playing WoW about a year into BC, that’s all I played or really knew for years. Started reading wow.joystiq which lead me to you guys and the rest is history, my gaming collection went from 2 to probably 150. Sad I just don’t have the time to really get into them all, I don’t know how you do it.

Going to hit up some SotA.  I haven’t played in a few releases.  It can’t still be THAT bad, right?  Right!?
