WRUP: Foxman edition

How did we get here? This place is crawling with too many games. Smells like ozone. I never thought we’d be here for this long. We’ve survived shutdowns of games, the site shutdown, crowdfunding, commenters, personal crises, even that stupid hurricane. How many different ways can you get someone to sit in front of a computer for hours, weeks, months at a time?

Lots, apparently. Maybe we should have written that screenplay about the sassy robot.

It doesn’t matter, though; you’re the original. A big-shot writer, remember? You can fly! Or at least you can write about people who know how to fly. So the next time you type “What Are You Playing” and ask the community to respond to all of the stuff the Massively crew is getting up to over the weekend, it’ll light up a million monitors.

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Oh, why lie: I’m back in Ultima Online and really enjoying it. May as well keep at it a few weeks before I get sucked into the inevitable time-vortex that is Guild Wars 2. I’m in the middle of a major switcharound of my UO characters’ skills. Up first? Converting my fisher/gardener into a rares thief.

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): I have no idea; moving and personal stuff have made this an awful week. I’d like to get some time in Final Fantasy XIV and World of Warcraft, as is the custom.

Jef Reahard (@jefreahard): Eh, I don’t have much time to game this weekend. I might manage a bit of Star Wars: Uprising.

Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): Right now I’m installing the Sword Coast Legends head start, so I’m definitely curious to take it out for a spin over the weekend and see if it’s worth the ravings I’ve heard. Also, Marvel Heroes is hosting an Odin’s Bounty weekend, and papa wants some loot.

Larry Everett (@Shaddoe, blog): I’m still hopping around in Star Wars: The Old Republic. I’m going to have to buckle down and finish decorating the guild stronghold. I’ve got all the major furniture in place; now it’s just a matter of adding frills.

MJ Guthrie (@MJ_Guthrie, blog): I’ll be sailing around in ARK: Survival Evolved, as well as replacing some dinosaurs (R.I.P. Poly, sniff).  I’ve also got a few more goals that are keeping me more active in ArcheAge lately, and I might be popping into Skyforge and/or SWTOR with friends. Come to think of it, I am really missing one friend so I will head into Grand Theft Auto Online just so we can go steal some cars together! That will make it all better.

Patreon Donor Thatchefdude: Taking a break from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain to work on my crafters in FFXIV. Also, Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 launched this week, and I love soccer, so I’ll probably put a couple hours into that.

Patreon Donor Pierre: I’m still really enjoying Vana’diel this week, the world of Final Fantasy XI, exploring, fighting, fishing, wandering aimlessly, definitely love to relax here. I stopped Skyforge out of boredom: this game is too repetitive for me. I had another World of Tanks relapse, but the MatchMaker is not kind with me and losing (or winning too easily) over and over because of an obvious lack of balance between opposite teams is extremely frustrating. So I’m looking for a second MMO to play for a change from FFXI… I think I’ll look at MOP writers’ and readers’ WRUP contributions to find new ideas.

Your turn… don’t lead Pierre astray!

Nate Woodard ManastuUtakata Elder Scrolls Online is worth playing for the story and quests. You might be able to get something out of endgame with a good guild and if you like PvP there’s Cyrodiil(zergfest) and imperial city(not tested yet, probably a more condensed version of Cyrodiil). TSW is the same but with a more stellar story and worse combat but better character building(and a smaller PvP focus).

Groupcentric MMOs… they are kinda not in fashion atm, you should probably look to a coop experience instead. Diablo 3 is great fun with a bunch of friends, e.g., and there’s the upcoming Sword Coast Legends which looks pretty promising.

Besides that I can suggest the Horus Heresy novels, from which I devoured like 20 in a row, and I am still eager for more(but I don’t have that much more to go <.<), I’m also in the process of rereading Pratchett(alas R.i.P. to the great genius). You can literally read everything from him. Bland novel suggestions, I know, but that’s what I’m focussing atm.(With a few sidetrips to the Warhammer Fantasy novels)

I don’t understand the foxman, and I feel really sick to my stomach when I look at him. I feel as if he is a demon from some eldrich dimension full of shitty kindergarten drawings. 
Anywhores, I am resubbing to WoW because that’s what I do when I get depressed. I feel better knowing that at least I have this half-baked-gutted-shell of and rpg. Hopefully the crushing absurdity and poor quest writing will either make me realize that the hellscape of a life isn’t so bad,or it could be the final straw and I’ll definitely end my own life.

…then since WildStar and GW2 have already been suggested, you could try:
1) FF XIV (sub based) – deep story, enriched playing environment, amazing community. But a little slow, retentive and noodley on combat and progression. 
2) TERA (freemium) – XIV on cocaine, fast paced. But comes with creeper overtones and feels like grinding boars in Goldshire to max level at mid levelling point.

ManastuUtakata Nate Woodard I don’t know Manu.. I am pretty bored with the current nothingness. Heh.  MMO is the preference, the flavor doesn’t matter.

RickMills1 Nate Woodard Two excellent suggestions, but they are two games that I’m not in the mood to play right now, especially GW2.  Me and that game just aren’t getting along right now.

Koshelkin Nate Woodard I read every night, mate!  As far as games go, I’m looking for an MMO. I love the Multiplayer aspect of them.  I’d also like something easy to get into and out of.  As far as the flavor goes, I have no preference there.

Almost no video games! Tried SW Uprising and didn’t like it. Tried to play Dragon Age Inquisition but didn’t find the time. Played a bit of The Secret World with my boyfriend, but that was only a few missions at the Franklin Mansion, we’ll be moving on to the rest of the zone… sometime. This is taking forever haha. No other MMO playing except waiting for SWTOR:KOTFE (may play other content in meantime) and RIFT’s Planetouched Wilds (may mess around with other content, play story alts, try to progress Nightmare Saga). Main priority is to play Dragon Age: Inquisition as much as I can, then expand into all the DLCs (preferably on sale so I don’t spend more than $30-40 for everything including cosmetic stuff), get that over with, finish my Mass Effect trilogy canon playthrough and maybe more, before Andromeda releases in 1-1.5 years. Phew.

ManastuUtakata Silver is not easy on a Monk – those little bunnies don’t want to die with the weak AOE the monk has :)
Just keep at it – after doing it a bunch you’ll pop through and realize the method.
Love the drawing – maybe you should consider Landmark for a game? :)

Nate Woodard You could try some GW2 Free to Play to see if you like it – and WS will be hitting the Free to Play for trying out soon also.
