WRUP: You meant completely free edition

in space

Apparently I got a new game for free on Steam. I wasn’t really planning on it; I just saw a little advertisement saying that Race the Sun was free for one day only, so I decided to check it out, figuring it was one of the many games out there that has a free play weekend or day or whatever. It wasn’t until yesterday that I realized it was, yes, completely free for that one day, that I now own the game for a price of zero dollars. I’m not quite sure how I feel about that.

I guess more companies going the EA/Origin route of having periodic free games works out for my game library in the short term, though? That’s something.

What Are You Playing is free to read, of course, but it always has been. It’s free to read every day. And it gives you a good idea of what the Massively Overpowered writers are playing alongside our Patrons. You can let us know what you’re going to be up to down in the comments, too.

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Realistically, I won’t get to play anything, as I’m in full moving mode over the next week! But I have Marvel Heroes, Trove, and Project Gorgon loaded up and waiting for me if I can sneak in any time. Re: Gorgon: an old-school sandpark that Justin actually likes has to be worth a try.

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): I suppose I’m kind of predictable with Final Fantasy XIV and World of Warcraft eating up my weekend routine, but hey – there’s roleplaying to do and fun to be had.  It’s worked thus far.

Jef Reahard (@jefreahard): EverQuest II mostly, with some Lord of the Rings Online summer festival because I feel the need to get every one of those stupidly pointless deeds.

Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): Project Gorgon has me well and hooked, so this weekend I’ll be seeing if I can get cursed into being a cow so that I can live like a cow, play like a cow, and be victorious like a cow. I’d also love to make progress with my Bounty Hunter in Star Wars: The Old Republic (even with 12x on, it’s still a long journey!) and get into some WildStar fun. Also I’ll be inviting players into our new Marvel Heroes supergroup, so look Sypster up if you’re online!

Larry Everett (@Shaddoe, blog): We are doing a bit of restructuring within my Star Wars: The Old Republic guild, and we are reinventing the guild’s store so that it can be more social and carry over into the new expansion a little bit better. Then of course, I do have raid on Sunday like usual.

MJ Guthrie (@MJ_Guthrie, blog): I’ll be totally immersed in EverQuest II (both the TLE server and regular) as well as ARK: Survival Evolved. I am not even going to pretend I have time to do anything else; any extra time I find will be in one of those two games.

Tina Lauro (@purpletinabeans): I don’t think I’ll get much more done than a little leveling in World of Warcraft and my Guild Wars 2 dailies. I’m busy doing a load of housework, research, and packing before I go off to Germany for Gamescom on Tuesday! Excited, me? Never!

Brandon Michael Adams: Finally, a weekend not surrounded by dirt, and in my own house no less. Once the initial shock over seeing the color green wears off, I plan to host a party for my roommate this Friday, seeing as he is about to deploy. This of course will be followed by plenty of hungover weekend Final Fantasy XIV, as I question my friends as to why they would let me cause such suffering to myself (grinding both Scrips and Tomes; maybe the drinking too). I may even sneak in some Dragon Age: Inquisition. I have to work on that backlog at some point, right?

Your turn!

After hitting 60 on NIN in Heavensward i didn’t have the heart to jump onto BLM, my other main job, right away so on a whim i tried out DRK. I had been told it was “squishy garbage” but im currently lvl.58 and i’ve solo tanked everything but odin and ifrit extreme with no problems. It might be because i’ve played the dark knight equivalent in every mmo from FFXI to WoW over the last 15 years but this just clicked for me in a way no mmorpg tank class has in years. Maybe its just the whole “run in with a giant claymore like guts” element to it, or the interesting job story that was a little more introspective than edgelord batman knockoff i expected. 2 More levels to go and 3 of my old WoW guildies are jumping back into XIV after exhausting 6.2 and i finally have something i can boost them on -not that i havent been doing that on a SUM friend who did the same earlier last month anyway :p

I think i like it mostly because it doesnt ‘feel’ like a tank but just a melee dps with taunts. Normally tanking classes feel slow and heavy, this feels like im just a DPS running in to get something off the healer like a bad Alexander trash pull. Fun stuff, already got a fully upgraded Law set for it and kind of tempted to start spending esoterics on DRK gear instead of NIN, just depends if i can get into Alexander Savage in a big way or not.

Aside from that still playing Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, for 4 player drop in multiplayer boss fighting its killed any and all fun i had in other smaller online multiplayer games like Diablo 3. Its been like 6 months and the free dlc keeps rolling in and im still like 40% done, and MonHun Cross is already on its way!

I think WRUP for me will be the same every week until an actual MMO comes out. Nothing to play but ARK.

Yesterday I played a bit of Guild Wars 2. Completed my dailies and helped some guildies in some dungeons. Ran around Silverwastes for awhile. I’ve mainly been playing Fallout:New Vegas for the past week. I’ve had it for months but haven’t really given it the proper attention. So far I’m enjoying it a lot. I love the crafting/modding aspect of it with the weapons, and the stories are fun. I’ll probably be playing it for quite some time. I’m not using any mods for my first run through. Just straight ‘vanilla’.

SWTOR! Made my Inquisitor – human species despite my preference of making an alien (I dunno, it just happened!). Done Korriban and Dromond Kass and its parallel flashpoints, Lv 18. No more alts until I unlock more species -_- (I have 4/8 of the classes started).

Actually tried Skyforge! Almost 1000 prestige. Its… okay? Better than the closed beta I tried, but I’m definitely not invested yet. I do prefer story, and Skyforge’s efforts at it are.. damn shallow at best. Really pretty and flashy and the combat is sometimes fun though.

Tried KOTOR2 with its recent patch and the restored content mod. Cool!

Tried RIFT’s Nightmare Saga Act 2 but it wanted Ghar rep so I’m gonna.. give it a bit of a break for now until I’m willing to do dailies/weeklies/experts/nightmare rifts/zone events like the typical RIFT endgame routine that I haven’t done in a good while.

Silverbourne deekay_zero Estranged Well…  

I bet Khem Val trimming bushes in his own special way would scare the neighbors.  Sounds promising.

I’ve been keeping it low-end this weekend.  I’m also kid-free, so I’ve been trying my best to cram so much stuff into 48 hours as I can. I practiced with my web dev stuff because I have to be just a little productive this weekend. Then, I quested a bit in Runescape and hung out in DragonRealms since they have some new crafting systems in since I played last. I also got into a browser RPG called Cantr. It’s super slow paced, but I like it.  I wanted to quest a bit in EQ2, but I need to sleep eventually.  I’ll try again in 2 weeks.

Ditto. Well, not collecting dust at the bottom of FG, but totally sucked back in. Lovin’ the TLE
