WRUP: Angry dot jpeg edition

For my next trick, I'm making Prowl.

The image above is a picture of Prowl from IDW’s Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye, which is an utterly great comic that you should be reading and hopefully already are, so I don’t need to tell you that. Prowl is a jerk. Prowl gets very angry when things don’t go exactly his way.

Do not be Prowl. Do not flip tables when you have issues with pre-orders or when your 13-year-old game goes into maintenance mode with one final storyline or when someone says that a game that’s having issues might not have a bright future. Be someone better than Prowl. Although turning into a police car would be pretty sweet. Especially that new armored one from…

What Are You Playing, right. We talk about that past the break. Let us know in the comments!

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Guild Wars 2 most likely for me. I did find Elder Scrolls Online terribly tempting, but I don’t have the cash for two full-price-a-year-after-launch boxes lying around right now for obvious reasons, so I’ll have to be patient. Gotta say my husband and I have also been discussing giving The Secret World a serious go, but this is probably not the month for it, giving the insanity around here. We’ll see!

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): I never wanted to move again, but here I am moving to a new place, and I hate moving so very much. The new place is pretty great, though. I’ll be trying to fit some Final Fantasy XIV and World of Warcraft in once everything’s been brought around from one spot to another. It’ll be a bit disjointed.

Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): I might not be doing much gaming this weekend, although I do want to at least log into Marvel Heroes to snag that sweet goodie bag they’re giving out. Right now I’m hooked on getting characters in different MMOs all the way through the current content and then park them for upcoming patches and expansions. I’ve done this with Star Wars: The Old Republic and The Secret World and am pushing to do the same for Guild Wars 2, RIFT, and Lord of the Rings Online.

Larry Everett (@Shaddoe, blog): The Elder Scrolls Online‘s Justice System encouraged me to fall behind on leveling my new character. So most of my weekend will be attempting to level up my Nightblade, but what’s most likely going to happen is that I will see one person I can pickpocket from during my quest chain… then another… then another… did I mention that I’ve been pickpocketing elite NPCs? Talk about fun! Then I find that random guy on the road and I become a bandit. It’s too much fun. Wait. I was supposed to be leveling, right?

Mike Foster (@MikedotFoster, blog): Same as always! Dota 2 and League of Legends. Marvel Heroes for CMA. And maybe some Dark Souls? We’ll have to see what the weekend brings.

MJ Guthrie (@MJ_Guthrie, blog): I will actually be in Guild Wars 2 for a little, believe it or not! But most of my time will be advancing my Tokyo story mission in The Secret World and enjoying the chronoportal event in EverQuest II. I am excited to show more of the game off to friends who just joined me there! I’d also like to squeeze some H1Z1 in and maybe see if I can get in a group to check out EverQuest‘s anniversary quests.

Tina Lauro (@purpletinabeans): I’m obsessed with the new camera controls in Guild Wars 2, particularly the option to lock the camera to a character’s eye level, so I’ll be running around taking a crazy number of screens shots with a whole new perspective. I’m also going to be levelling another new character on a new-to-me server in World of Warcraft with some friends. I don’t know what class or race I’ll choose yet, though!

Your turn!

TESO, actually. In a shock move, I grabbed the Imperial Edition and Explorer’s Pack for about $57 and logged in to create some characters and fiddle with addons.
I did not expect to buy in because of the expense, but the ability to get the “top” edition with “preorder” bonuses for less than the retail price (the going rate really is $60 for the game right now on normal retail sites) proved to be too much for me.

Leveled my ‘anon alt’ in TSW through all of Kingsmouth, putting her in QL3 greens and blues. Leveling means doing all missions I can do when on the basic QL for the zone, not collecting all lore or achievements, etc. My anon alt is my 4th character, of the same faction as my main (so I’m refreshing myself on faction mission messages), and made the most to just mess around on, without being ever recognized for my normal naming method. I’d like to get all my characters through Savage Coast so I can just pop on any to help my bf if he returns to TSW this year (he’s 1/2 through Savage Coast, though I wouldn’t mind if he just totally restarted progress since he’s been gone so long). My main sits on his Transylvania mission and Elite dungeon progression, to be going to Tokyo once I feel like it, have the time to invest into it, and the spare money for the Tokyo Pack.
Been playing a bit of Dragon Age: Inquisition, but its so full of annoying bugs by this point (a patch to fix an exploit turned out to remove all Amulets of Power in chests, things that give skill points to characters!!) that I’ve just backed away. Its so… sad and lame by this point. Fix this, Bioware. Its March. I’d love to enjoy your game but I can’t even play it on the right settings, it crashes on me, and even the main game mechanics don’t work properly. There’s great stuff here but I can’t even enjoyably access it. No way in hell am I buying DLC until the game is at least fixed enough for me to play more than a few hours without getting annoyed.I’ve just been popping into Rift, but not doing much. I’ll finish Tarken Glacier questing soon enough, move into Tyrant’s Throne and more endgamey activities. Or just go back to Mathosia/Brevane/Dusken and look at my missing achievements. I’m irked that they’re removing IA achievements without working out a PROPER solution about it (reduce the requirements and put them all in their own section? kay? KAY?) and they’re seemingly removing Classic Hammerknell from the game (not proven since its just been shown on PTS that the achievements are gone, but WTF??????). I’m getting bothered to the point of just, well, not bothering. So far, when my income is back, I find it’ll be going into TSW content, ESO price, and FFXIV subscription instead of Rift. (Maybe SWTOR at some point but I need to do other stuff in it first, like Makeb)There’s some other games that I’m part way through. Terranigma playthrough is still ongoing (SNES), Machinarium I intend on finishing up. And other stuff.

Honestly I don’t usually mind angry people on forums/in threads, because usually when I see angry people it’s as comments in threads and it’s because not-angry people were knowingly riling them up. I don’t know if I’d call those people trolls or anything – I guess some people just like making people upset. I tend to blame the cause of anger, not the angry person. Of course, rage threads exist that are just there to rant and rave, and those are silly, but I just sorta ignore those because I know what to expect from the main post. Comment threads that devolve however, are a different matter sometimes. :P

As for what I’ve been up to – Guild Wars 2! I’m antsy about making my revenant, but I ended up buying and using another character slot to make something unrelated. I made a sylvari engineer! I was going to make it human, but I used the makeover kit to preview humans, sylvari, and charr. I like the combination I had for human, but I LOVED the combination I had for sylvari and charr. I ended up going sylvari because I had a great name/face/concept idea for the engineer I decided to use. The charr combination I came up with I may use later, but not sure which class I’d use it for. Maybe warrior, as I haven’t spent any time on one. The human issue made me realize i may be happy with some of the default options if I go that route for my revenant. As for beta invites, I didn’t receive one. Oh well – I’m just hoping this means it’s launching sooner rather than later. I wanna start my revenant!

I also made a Dragonknight in ESO – rerolled one of my characters as I decided I wanted a new appearance and it was pretty low level. I saw a Deltiasgaming video that showed off his build and I fell in love with the appearances of some of the skills and decided to try the class out for real this time. :) It’s been great seeing so many people around ingame again.

Winter quarter is over, and I am celebrating by playing some ESO, Disgaea, and whatever else I want to play!

BriarGrey Twitticle  Perhaps its just a pet peeve. I may be way off and falling in the pitfalls of my own perspective.
I think both of your examples are correct, heavens ward, skyward, looking to the heavens, etc… and heaven sward. Except neither are spelled “heavensward” canIsimplyconnectanywordstocreatenewgrammaticallycorrectdefinitions. Again might be a pet peeve. Still bought it, so I guess I am not that peeved. :)
