WRUP: Someone was really hungry edition

    
92
Everyone was wearing matching towels.

I don’t know how we got to the point of eating lobster, exactly, but someone must have been really hungry. Like, insanely hungry. Someone fished up that thing, and rather than deciding that it was proof that there were no loving deities in the world, the fisher thought “let’s boil that and eat it.” And then it was drenched in butter until the rubbery lobster meat became something palatable, which is somehow even more nonsensical than the fact that you’d look at this thing and think you should eat it.

But I don’t care about what you’re eating this weekend and you don’t care about what I’m eating. No, what I care about is the answer to the question of What Are You Playing. We’ll let you know what those of us on the Massively Overpowered staff will be playing along with some of our patrons, and you can let us know your plans down in the comments.

Brendan Drain (@nyphur): I’ve got 40 pre-fit disposable cruisers in EVE Online and this weekend I intend to lose them all in glorious yet fiscally responsible combat. I’ll also be trying to figure out what they’ve done to my elementalist’s traits in Guild Wars 2 and putting together a patch for DOSBox that should make some old games like Constructor and Master of Orion II touch-screen compatible. Busy weekend!

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Marvel Heroes. I hear they are having like 50 parties at once, and there are probably ponies and beer. But seriously! I’ve been playing around with some new-to-me toons: Invisible Woman and Star-Lord. So I’ll try to sneak in some playtime this weekend.

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog):Enjoying having a friend over by having us all play Final Fantasy XIV? Yeah, that sounds good to me.

Jef Reahard (@jefreahard): I’ll be playing Ark: Survival Evolved and pretending like I know what I’m doing when it comes to administering the MOP ARK server.

Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): I’d like to say that I’ll be checking out Anarchy Online‘s brand-new graphics engine — which I’d really like to do — but Marvel Heroes‘ Big 10 event has pushed everything else from my schedule. So much stuffs. So much loots. So wow. Must do it all. Must level all the things. Please send help.

Larry Everett (@Shaddoe, blog): This weekend, I’m going to do a bit of soul searching in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Server transfers are only 90 Cartel Coins, and I’m considering finding a second server home for PvE stuff.

Michael Gray: I made a water balloon catapult for my daughter to help encourage me to sprint during runs in the yard. So the game is she’s a pirate trying to hit me with a water balloon, and the only dodge I’m allowed is to sprint to avoid it.

DirtyKlingon (@deekay_zero): More WildStar and more D&D; June has been a great month. Sundial will also be here tonight kicking off my guild’s first meet-up, even though it’s just the two of us and my bro that already lives with me hanging out. Beers and barbeques abound, and hopefully he’s not a serial killer that goes extremely out of his way to find prey. (If you don’t hear from me this coming week, call the mounties.)

Brandon “KythasWraith” Adams: Another weekend down, and only a few more ’til I can smell the sweet aromas of home (unfortunately “home” is Oklahoma; Las Vegas I do miss thee). I’ll be flying for well over half a day over the weekend and plan to play some more of the Final Fantasy X remaster on my Vita while up in the sky, but I know I’ll likely log most of my time in Theatrhythm: Curtain Call or Majora’s Mask 3DS instead. Once I find my feet back on solid ground I will be resume my journey to level 60 in Heavensward. It’s been a great expansion thus far, and I am eager to see how the story plays out. I haven’t been this enthralled by a Final Fantasy tale since Final Fantasy XII.

Your turn!

I know the article was not intended to be how did we start eating said item but I’ve anyways kind of thought about this for years like there’s sum items that will ruin your day in a bad way if you ate them. How and when outsole found out lettuce was ok and poison ivy was not cool to eat lol there’s so many more examples but that’s one that came to mind…

They are referring to the former gear grind required to progress the main story quests; not zodiac, nor progression raiding. Square added all the required gear to the story quests with the expansion to allow those who were behind on their story to effortlessly finish it and get into Heavensward (cause story-gating). In case  player has come back to a point where their ilvl is too low for a dungeon/trial they are immediately at then there is crafted/vendor 115 gear to push them past the content and into Heavensward (I bought a guildie of mine full 115 vendor gear when we saw he was too low ilvl for Keeper of the Lake and he has had no problems since).

I.E. Not a troll in context of his statement. You’re just being belligerent.

Total War free weekend on Steam. No MMOs worth playing right now.

Having recently finished all the class stories in SWTOR (for a second time: I’ve done a dark- and light-side playthrough of each, now), I made a valiant attempt to play KOTOR 1…and succeeded! I put the difficulty on easy and forced myself to accommodate to the antiquated combat system, and ended up enjoying the living daylights out of the story. I just bought KOTOR 2 and started playing yesterday. It looks like more of the same goodness, with some small quality-of-life improvements. So I guess I’m only about a decade late to that particular party. :)

Enikuo JonBuck You get i90 gear just doing your Level 45 & 50 Class Quests. Then you rank up to i110 as you progress through the MSQ. Here’s an axe I got for completing the 2.4 content.

McSleaz The Gear Grind is entirely optional if you’re just doing the MSQ. I don’t care about Zodiac weapons. Just the MSQ.
