WRUP: Enjoy the smooth flavor of Mrs. Patter’s Bacon-Fried Cookies edition
Guys, we could not be more excited to start getting in on the branded content game, and we’re starting with endorsing Mrs. Patter’s Bacon-Fried Cookies! But we promise you, this won’t really affect our content, which is refreshing and fried in the grease of simmering hog fat just like Mrs. Patter’s delicious cookies! Available in all sorts of wonderful flavors, like Strawberries & Bacon, Vanilla Custard & Bacon, Peanut Butter & Cheese, and of course, Blueberry & Broken Glass & Bacon That Doesn’t Taste Right!
We’ll still be bringing you all of the same great MMO content you’ve come to expect, it’ll just cover a wider spectrum. Like which flavor of Mrs. Patter’s cookies to enjoy with your favorite game, or why Mrs. Patter’s Meth & Bile cookies help you stay focused during intense play sessions, or which games have GMs most willing to call an ambulance because you are eating a kind of cookie the FDA has prohibited from sale in the United States. Let us know what you’re playing down in the comments of What Are You Playing, and the best response gets a free box of Mrs. Patter’s Bacon-Fried Cookies (Now With Less Asbestos, Probably)!
Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): Pokemon Go is happening but so is Overwatch because Moira’s out and I am in love. It’s not ’cause she’s a redhead and I have a weakness, but because I feel like I’m playing some kind of vampire/bloodmage healer, in a shooter. I still don’t think her art style matches the rest of the cast but she’s so fun, I’ll need an outdoor game to make sure my muscles don’t atrophy (and that I’m prepared for next week’s feast).
Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): I dunno! I logged into Ultima Online yesterday and puttered. I considered Marvel Heroes, but I just can’t even bring myself to do it. I’ll probably play some Trove with the kid, and I’ll definitely be playing games on my phone – I gave Pocket Legends Adventures a spin and really liked that, so maybe more of it. And if I get time to duo with the husband, Guild Wars 2 is likely, but ahead of the holidays, overlapping free gaming time has become a challenge.
Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): The usual stuff; Final Fantasy XIV, Secret World Legends, World of Warcraft, NaNoWriMo, whatever that game is where you sit in the bath for an hour and feel bad about your life choices. Mega Man 8? Sure, that’s probably it.
Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): Believe it or not, right now I’m having the time of my life in Dungeons & Dragons Online. These highly scripted and varied mini-dungeons are a blast to play through, especially with optional challenges, and I am looking forward to touching the new expansion one day. Other than that, some WoW Warlock leveling and Lord of the Rings Online questing are on my plate.
MJ Guthrie (@MJ_Guthrie, blog): There is plenty of Egypt for me to work my way through in Secret World Legends, and a million things I still want to do in EverQuest II. There are also a number of the survival sandboxes that I want to dip back into, but I can’t quite choose. ROKH? Life is Feudal? Osiris? Hellion? And we know how bad I am at decisions.
Pierre, patron: I’m trying to max two characters in Destiny 2 before the launch of the Curse of Osiris DLC on December 5th. I hope I’ll be fast enough, so that I can join as many new activities as possible with my clan (they are all maxed out today, they’re so much faster than I am). On a sadder note, I was really shocked by the news of Marvel Heroes closing shop. I’ve never really spent a lot of time in the game, but I’ve only heard positive comments and praise about that MMO. It’s always too bad when a good game has to end like this. And I’m also thinking about all the players who liked this game and will not be able to enjoy it anymore; all my support goes to you guys, I hope you find another MMO of choice soon. Have a nice gaming weekend MOP readers. Cheers!
