WRUP: Introducing the Sega Box edition
Did you really think that Sega was getting out of the console business just because of the Dreamcast’s enormous failure? That’s just what they wanted everyone to think, releasing a series of terrible Sonic games to lull their rivals into a false sense of security. Now, with Nintendo having just released its own new console, Sega is proud to reveal the Sega Box, on this website for some reason!
The Sega Box features a fully immersive gaming experience with its launch title, Sonic Aquatic, when you fill the box with water and stick your head in. But quickly. It features seven USB ports, four of which randomly work when you boot up the system, and can run off of electricity, kerosene, or ennui. It also features 300 gigabytes of onboard storage which cannot be accessed, a dance pad, an undisclosed number of spiders, and free wi-fi if you’re already paying for it in your home. Also, it always answers What Are You Playing down in the comments. You should do that, too.
Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): I can tell you what I won’t be playing: my own Nintendo Switch. I still haven’t been won over to be a day one buyer, and as a Nintendo fan, that breaks my heart. I’ll be playing some Pokémon Go, probably some Fire Emblem Heroes, and (not Nintendo related) possibly try out Crowfall (finally), but I’ve got some social engagements to attend, one of which may involve an old mutant or two.
Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Same as usual for me – I’ll be in The Elder Scrolls Online noobing around on my new toon, and I might play some Guild Wars 2 as well. I also need to figure out why my Crowfall account isn’t working properly!
Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): I’ve been struggling with trying to settle on a viable alt in World of Warcraft lately. Nothing plays quite as fun or smooth as my Death Knight, that’s the problem. So I guess I’ll be working on hashing that out, as well as doing some more Transylvanian madness in The Secret World and Hobbiting around in Lord of the Rings Online.
MJ Guthrie (@MJ_Guthrie, blog): I don’t think I will have much gaming time as I try to cram in all the visiting I can with people this weekend. I might try to experience a little Grand Theft Auto IRL during the 9 hour drive back home at the end of the weekend, but I’m not sure I could lose the coppers as easily in this version as I can in the online one. Also car repairs would break me unless I manage a bank heist first… The most I will likely manage is feeding Ark: Survival Evolved dinosaurs and maybe some TSW challenges for my gravity skates.
Patreon Patron Pierre: “After a few weeks knee deep into lots of paperwork following recent sad events in my family, I finally found some time for gaming this weekend. I was called back by The Division (once an agent, always an agent :-) ) and will contribute pacifying Manhattan in these troubled times. I bought Horizon Zero Dawn on my PS4 and I must say I hadn’t played such an excellent game for a long time. It’s almost perfect :-) and may be my GOTY for 2017, we’ll see, the year is far from being over yet. Speaking of which, I saw some videos from the last Zelda and I’m sure there are many good reasons to enjoy this game, but having played Horizon, for those glorifying Zelda’s open world and beautiful landscapes, I just have one advice: go to your ophtalmologist and have your eyes checked (and from this moment, all the Nintendo fanboys have a wish to skin me with their bare hands). Enjoy your weekend MOP readers, cheers!”
