WRUP: Introducing the Quintorail edition
Let me ask you something, folks. How often have you tried to take a train in this country only to find that it was running on a single rail? “Almost never,” you say. That’s right! Not because the United States has horrible rail transit and has generally neglected that form of mass movement in favor of a destructive highway system, but because more rails are better! Monorails literally hate you and want you to suffer. So we’ve designed the ultimate American rail car, the Quintorail!
It just makes sense, right? More of something is better, isn’t it? And the Quintorail has five, count ’em, five rails, taking up more than twice the resources for no additional speed or stability! It can also be derailed by a penny on the tracks. Or near the tracks. Or shouting the word “penny” loudly from the street. Or the driver having pennies in the cab. Let us know what you’re up to in this week’s installment of What Are You Playing before riding on the fantastic Quintorail! Right now it only services one stop, which is sitting and rusting in my backyard, but it’ll turn around soon.
Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): So yes, Pokemon Go will happen as usual, but oh! Oh god! Oh sweet, merciful raptor god, Monster Hunter World. I just… there’s so much to do, and I don’t feel like I’m grinding (yet)! That will be my weekend, aside from making sure I get out a bit and interact directly with humans before putting up the digital barrier and once again stalking virtual prey with my meow-cenary palico friend or other human friends on PS4.
Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Presumably Guild Wars 2, since that’s what I’ve been messing around on this week, but I haven’t gotten to play in my trio, and I’m a little bored of playing it alone, so maybe I’ll dip into something else instead.
Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): I want to clock in a few dungeon runs in Dungeons & Dragons Online this weekend as well as take my Death Knight to Argus and complete that questline (I’ve been dragging my feet on that). I am finishing up Life is Strange: Before the Storm and am looking forward to diving into Railway Empire, which just launched this week.
