WRUP: What your favorite type of soda says about you edition
Cola: Who knows or cares.
Sprite/Sierra Mist/7-UP: You want to have soda, but when someone gives you a cola of some sort you’re all like, “whoah, not that much soda.” So then things are sort of all right.
Ginger Ale: You’d probably have fewer stomachaches if you’d stop eating all of that aquarium gravel, but it tastes like stingy candy.
Fruit soda: Stupid juice not bubbling on your tongue. You need to feel alive. Come on, bubble on my tongue, you orange-flavored mess that has probably never even been in the same room as an orange.
Grapefruit soda: Your name is Phillip D’Antonio and today is your first day of fourth grade.
Any of the above, but you call it pop: It’s called soda. Jeez.
Whale soda: Mm, you can really taste the baleen.
Flavored seltzer: Why are you this way? Why do you do this. You come into my home, my home full of soda, and you ask me for this flavorless water with bubbles that tastes like nothing. How can you do this to me? How do you live? Get out! I have no son!
WRUP soda: This isn’t a soda. It’s What Are You Playing. Let us know what you’re playing down in the comments, and stuff.
Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): I’m still getting over my cold, but even if I have to be in my car, I won’t miss my Pokemon Go EX Raid. First time at this park, and it’s one I’d been fighting at since I came back to the USA. It’s a sentimental thing.
Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Bizarrely, I’ve spent my gaming time this week in Ultima Online, ostensibly getting everything ready to deactivate but actually just playing, so maybe I’ll stick around a while longer. I also poked my head into Trove for the free mounts (woot) and might go back in there this weekend too. And Guild Wars 2 – I’ll probably go check out the lunar new year stuff, but man, their events never make me want to do any of them.
Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog):The usual round of World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy XIV, and Project Gorgon should keep me fully occupied. I still do have Final Fantasy XII to start playing, so that might fit its way in there too.
Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): I’m trying to finish up the Black Book of Mordor in Lord of the Rings Online but am finding my will to slog through this expansion at an end. More than likely, I’ll be working on various World of Warcraft alts, trying to reach level 10 in Dungeons & Dragons Online, and maybe returning to Final Fantasy XIV. Shh. Don’t tell Eliot.
dk, patron: This week I’ve been putting WoW on the back burner for a bit to check out Staxel, the Minecraft-meets-Stardew-Valley super new early access game that is super adorable. I’m also logging into Space Engineers to watch my friends do space engineering things, tinkering about in Star Citizen, and playing around a bit with Avernum 3 Ruined World remaster, which I have been been patiently awaiting for like the past eight years from when Spiderweb first starting remastering the series. I might also slip into some Heroes of the Storm (where I decided to spend some leftover currency on some fresh skins(, water my plants in Viridi, and get the postponed Divinity: Original Sin 2 static campaign session done. Even though I’ve got a lot of games on the roster for the past few weeks, I’ve been super chill about all of them, just taking them on in super-duper casual ways.
Pierre, patron: Monster Hunter World has proven to be an exceptionally good video game; I’m quite exclusively playing MHW these days, and I would recommend it to any MMO player as there are many similarities between MHW and an MMO. Grinding is at the heart of your character’s progress, and you always find something to do, both for brief and long gaming sessions. I really appreciate that whatever you choose to do in the game, it’s your choice, not some kind of absurd specific requirement you need to fulfill to unlock loot or leveling caps. I may find some time to play WoW too, but I’m afraid that as I am addicted to Monster Hunter, I would not waste even a minute in Azeroth. And you MOP readers, what are you playing?
