WRUP: Spot the real names of actual Transformers edition!

As many of you may know, I am a fan of Transformers, which is frequently ridiculous. This is as evident in the names as it is anywhere else. Thus, I encourage everyone to guess which of the following Transformer names are actual names used by characters and which ones are completely made up. No, you don’t get to know how many are real. And here we go:

Slayride, Windbreaker, Guiltar, Wingwaver, Blue Bacchus, Randy, Sling, Darkwing, Gutcruncher, Blowpipe, Zap, Slapper, Daytonus, Oil Slick, Deep Cover, Autostinger, Carzap, Hydradread, Landshark.

So, which ones are real? Please leave your guesses down in the comments below. Also, since this is What Are You Playing, you should probably let us know what you’re playing in the comments, too. That is ostensibly the point.

Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): ​Sadly it’ll probably just be Pokemon Go. Maybe I’ll do some The Elder Scrolls Online. See, it’s my last weekend of con prep before GDC, so I’ll be waiting for last minute calls/contacts (welcome to the sausage factory). I’ve learned that attempting anything fun or social the weekend before a convention guarantees last minute long distance calls that ruin my outing/play session. I hate being “that guy,” so if you see some overly polite guy hugging the outside corner of the supermarket with his phone, please be sympathetic!

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): I’m easy this weekend: I’ll be in Trove, with which I am currently obsessed. Will I burn out before the expansion launches, most likely at the end of the month? Maybe! Who knows! Enjoying it while I enjoy it.

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): While I’ve got a (hopefully quick) meeting about buying my first house on Saturday, most of the weekend will be spent in World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy XIV, and Warframe. You know, more or less like it always is.

Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): Company is in town, so probably reduced gaming time for me. Ironically, this comes at a time where there’s more to play than ever, including jaunts in RIFT Prime, the release of Project Gorgon on Steam early access, Lord of the Rings Online’s Northern Mirkwood, and a dozen other things on my list. We’ll see what I’ll get to by Monday.

MJ Guthrie (@MJ_Guthrie, blog): I’ve been away from my dinos all week in ARK: Survival Evolved, so I am looking forward to getting back in and going for a ride on the rock drakes. There is still much to gather to finish up my castle on the cliff construction project, so there will be building as well. Other than that, I am hoping for more time in Subnautica and Secret World Legends. There is apparently a new zone to get ready for in the latter and I am still in Egypt!

Patron Pierre: I’ve been drawn back to XCOM 2 this week: I love this game, So, I’m going to kick some alien asses this weekend (and probably get my own ass kicked lots of times, because things don’t always/rarely go as planned in this game :D). On the PvP front, I try to play World of Tanks as apparently I’m addicted to it, but this game gets more and more frustrating. I play fair, mostly firing standard ammunition, and using gold (i.e., armor piercing) ammunition only for the heavy armored tank encounter. But the way to play these days is far from being fair: Everybody seems to go full gold. That’s the issue with PvP games; you can’t expect people to play fair if it gives them what they perceive as a disadvantage, or if playing unfair can maximize their chances of winning (isn’t there a saying about nothing being fair in love and war?). Main consequence: I’ll probably end up going full gold myself, when I get tired of losing 75% of my games. Enjoy your gaming weekend MOP readers and share your own gaming experience with us in the comments. I love reading those every week. :D”

Your turn!

I started leveling a male Ferasen Engineer in STO last week. He’s already up to level 40.

And I again want to state that Transformers is a perfect setting for a full AAA MMO.

More WoW as I level a Nightborne Warlock. Some TES:Legends since I’ve a Hearthstone wall. I keep telling myself I get some EVE time in but usually run out of time what with Kids and all.

This weekend is the end of my favorite two-week long foreign film festival, so playtime has to be cut. Took the grand kid to his first foreign film with absolutely no English. He hung in with the subtitles very well and enjoyed the film. Now, that’s my kind of grand kid. I will squeeze a little SWTOR play in. Somehow I have three characters in Balmora at the same time …sigh. How many times can you go in that Balmora arms factory without going insane?! I’m sure there is a pysch study on that somewhere.

trying to clear all the quests in Legion just to keep my main ‘up to date’ and boy is it kind of a mess if you waited for the final patches. Other than that i went to comicon in birmingham and watched Michael Rooker have a few hundred people whistle and yell ‘i’m mary poppin’s y’all’ which was a memorable experience.

and got some great discounted swag inbetween the sea of funko pops and off mould bootleg chinese nendoroids.

Popping into mobile etc games, but otherwise pretty much all RIFT Prime. Completed Freemarch except for final rares and artifacts. Progressing through Stonefield but taking my time! Goal for this month (before I decide to sub or not) is to get through Stonefield, Scarlet Gorge, and Scarwood Reach if I can, to fit the Prime Challenges.

Update: Actually managed to finish almost questing in Stonefield. Just a couple Carnages left, then the dungeon, camping around for remaining zone events and unique rifts, maybe fishing some more, and I’ll be on my way to the Gorge..

This week: Avoiding anything green…as this weekend is St. Fratboys Day apparently. :(

Also this week: WoWstar Allied race prep, Lyn Gunners and securing naming rights to character slots in respect to those…

As for example, I have yet to roll Paladin class in WoW. Mainly because I can’t really get behind the race selection. It becomes even more of a premium Goblin side to which I am currently focused on. And the choices are B’elf which I already have as a Demon Hunter as a non-Goblin species. And the other is the Tauren, proper…to which is a race I really respect, but I can’t get myself to play. It had been rumored that the new anf eventual Allied Troll Zandasomethin’ may have a Paladins as an option. Blizz seems to be oo’ing and ah’ing over this…but wouldn’t it be cool to roll a Troll Paladin? Anyroads, this has left me securing a name for this to camp on my toon roster. And in hoping a bit more good news comes my way…as I am sorely needing it.

Have a great week and weekend folks! <3

Planetside 2.

In case this hasn’t been mentioned already, for the Transformers fans out there, Transformers: Prime Wars. First two parts are out, third in May believe.

Second part allot better than first. Has a few of the original 80s movie voice actors in it.

It’s a web series where the episodes run about 10 minutes long and it’s made for an adult audience.

Subnautica, and Surviving Mars, with some Guild Wars 2 thrown in.

Very cool. Thanks!

Just seeing Rodimus Prime and Starscream standing next to each other made it worth the price of admission. And the relationship between Megatron and Prime is just classic. It’s really cool what they did with all the characters, and the story in general.

Guiltar? Isn’t that what your significant other turns into when you spend too much time gaming?

So for me? Well, the sun is out and winter is over, well, at least here. Time to put gas in the old Harley, maybe change the oil, kick the tires, charge the battery, and head out! That’s the plan.

Next week, I have a lot of work and BnS to cover so, I will purchase Sea of Thieves and wait to install it the falling week or something like that. And guess what is back on my radar? Battlefront II. Yup the visuals and game play is too good for me to pass up now that EA removed all of that progression via loot box bullshit.

But yeah, it’s still BnS for me. I’ve made my way into a competitive clan that raids several times a week and is clearing all the top tier content. It will be a busy week in the clan next week. And… I don’t know. I’m still enjoying it a lot. It scares me a little. LOL!

So I’ll leave you with a little slice of Dawn of Khanda Vihar, a low level raid. This is a pug group, btw. So any of you playing, hit me up and we will go in there and grab some loot!

i like how you timed the dancing to beat kicking in in the song here :D sometimes that happens in my videos but it’s usually unintentional :D

Reader

Yup. It was intentional but it was a pain in the ass.

In WoW, trying to level up a Void Elf as fast as possible, that’s all.
