WRUP: Fallout Seven or whatever edition

Boy, the angry emails I'm writing for myself.

Folks, the big video game news this week was confirmation that Fallout Something is going to be released! Through powerful kung fu focusing mostly on kicks powered by guns, I’ve obtained some new information about the game that I somewhat bothered to remember. The game will take place in some part of Rhode Island on an average Saturday and features giant ants, even gianter ants, mutated beasts known as “mutated beasts,” a really mean guy named Steve Somerhausen, and ants so big that the earlier ants are no longer in the game because these ants are, like, so big you guys.

Are you going to be flinging yourself into the bathtub while fully clothed over this news? Let us know about that in the comments because it’s time for What Are You Playing! And it’s also the first time that we’ve got some of our marvelous Patreon backers in the mix for this week’s writeup, so let’s find out what people are playing for the weekend.


Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Marvel Heroes for me. I am all about the free stuff and cheap sales, and that game feels like a party on a normal day, forget a huge anniversary. See you guys there!

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): I might actually take part in the big Fallout sale that’s going on over on Steam right now; as of this writing I haven’t actually decided. I’m in a bit of a gaming lull whilst I wait for Final Fantasy XIV‘s expansion, but I’m sure I’ll find something to do in WildStar and World of Warcraft.

Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): Marvel Heroes‘ anniversary event XP is very, very hard to ignore, especially with a crop of new heroes under my wing, so I’ll be spending several hours speed-leveling a few heroes to the cap. I got Doctor Doom too, so I’m looking forward to taking the evil overlord out for a test drive. Apart from that, there’s plenty to do in WildStar, including setting up a brand-new house.

MJ Guthrie (@MJ_Guthrie, blog): I will be spending plenty of time on my chopper, cruising The Secret World. Other than that, it will be some reveling and loot hording in Marvel Heroes, some Landmark building with family and friends, a bit of ArcheAge farming on my new giant farm plot, some fort building and zombie slaying in H1Z1, and hopefully at least one Heritage Quest in EverQuest II. I have lots of gaming to catch up on after the last couple of weeks!

DirtyKlingon (@deekay_zero): Oh wow, the air is so thin up here! Anyway, I’ve been derping around in super casual mode in WildStar this week, as well as making plans to dip my toes into The Repopulation and see what’s what since the last time I popped in some months ago. Also finally got some much-needed dice rolling in in our Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition Western Marches campaign via roll20.net. Super-exciting fun times!

Jagmas (@jagmas, blog): I just got my Ark: Survival Evolved server set up, so I am hoping to spend most of my time playing there. If there is any time left over, I’ll split it between The Witcher 3 and a scheduled Shards Online playtest this weekend.

Brandon “KythasWraith” Adams: Between being deployed and “volunteering” for special duties, I hope to get some time in with both The Witcher 3 and Final Fantasy XIV whenever I can this “weekend” (I genuinely thought it was Tuesday today). I have to make that pre-Heavensward gil at some point.

Eliot,  your summary is bordering on insulting all Fallout fans…

On a positive note. …. This time we killed the final boss, got two magical dresses to drop, in a different dungeon. We were a full group of 4, though Paladin snuck off to play mini games so I was healer-tank again …. unfortunately the shoe boss grabbed back the perfect footwear as it involved the cashop and I refuse to pay to win ….. Misleading information about the boots of blinding speed, they wanted additional currency….

In preparation for Heavensward, i’m rushing to complete the main storyline (and all the subsequent additions from the content patches) so that i won’t lag behind once expansion is out. But at the same time there are so many things that i haven’t tried out yet – raising my chocobo, trying out the Gold Saucer, leveling up yet another class (Bard), as well as working on my Atma weapon. Oh well, at least i won’t be bored.
World of Tanks is still my main distraction when i’m strapped for time, albeit it’s really hard to do anything meaningful while on a free account if you’re playing high tiers.

It’s not too bad where I am at. I’m in the Air Force, and the joke goes “we don’t go anywhere without running water, hot food, and internet.” FFXIV has enough of a latency issue where I am at to take raiding off the table, but the rest of the game is playable (hell, the lag is unnoticeable outside of encounters that require incredibly fast reactions).

Why cant they just give the Fallout IP to the people who make XCOM? Problem solved.

SUPER PSYCHED for FALLOUT 4, as I am a HUGE fan of that IP !! :)

As to what I’ve been playing this week well MARVEL Heroes Online, was finally able to unlock the last of the heroes this week (WOOT!!) thanks to good old Eternity Splinters  “None may lay hands on DOOM”! lol

Also been playing some Elder Scrolls Online as my fantasy buzz needed some satiating leveling my Nord Dragon Night some who is now looking rather awesome in his newly crafted and upgraded Armour.  Also wishing desperately that Zenimax would add the ability to buy more character slots already as my Alt-ism is really being harshed in that game 7 (or is it 8?) slots is JUST not enough dammit!!  So many concepts and builds I want to try.

I loved New Vegas and I’m back to playing it while I eagerly wait for Fallout 4.  Extra special psyched it’s set in Boston (where I live), even if it will be alterna-Boston with very little in common with the real thing.  Seeing the office building I worked in all decayed and leaning to the side was a high point of Last of Us, so hoping for more of the same in Fallout 4.

Oh, and my usual ESO is on tap.

I am not going to mention how that particular dress would be highly inappropriate for a ceremony of that gravity but you get high marks for the braid! Now I just need to wash out my eyeballs and I’ll be good to go ….
