WRUP: Here are all of the neighborhood kids’ houses rated edition

So, like, Kyle’s house has the really big TV and the Xbox, but Kyle’s older brother plays on it a lot and Kyle mostly wants to just play kicking games when he can’t play on the Xbox. Mike’s house has a big yard but his dog poops everywhere and he says his mom doesn’t care at all. Timmy has a really great pool, but he has a really small yard and his dad yells at anyone who runs in the house, so you get kinda bored unless he lets us play on our laptops.

Olivia has a lot of really cool toys but she also has a lot of weird ones and she doesn’t like people touching them too much. Melanie’s mom is super cool and lets you watch R-rated movies without even checking, but she never has any good snacks, just lots of granola bars. Neil’s house is back in the woods and he always wants to let us know what he’s doing in What Are You Playing. Jackie has two lizards and sometimes she lets you hold them.

Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): I’m sure everyone can guess that Pokemon Go is on my list, especially since Kangkaskhan will be in town. There may be some Dauntless going on as well, but it depends on my job search efforts

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Probably nothing! We’re headed on a trip to see the eclipse, so I’ll probably be gaming from my phone from the absolute middle of nowhere if all goes to plan. Feel free to hit me with your faves for Android, peeps; I haven’t loved much of what I’ve tried in the last year or so!

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): More stuff to do in Final Fantasy XIV. Will I ever run out of things to do in the game? Probably, I’m being pretty aggressive with this expansion. But it’ll be a while.

Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): I’m being a jerk (on purpose!) in Lord of the Rings Online as I run Ale Association quests with the ultimate goal of snagging that snazzy goat mount. What’s a few face slaps and spilled beers compared to that?

Otherwise, I’m midway into Transylvania in Secret World Legends, so while I’m not quite “caught up” with the content cap, I should be on target to hit it by this fall. I’ve been musing heading back to Star Wars: The Old Republic, but time hasn’t really worked out for me lately.

Patron Pierre: I’ve been away from my gaming platforms these last weeks but I’m back home now. Back to my casual sessions of The Division and Destiny. The launch of Destiny 2 on PS4 is close now (September 6th), and when the game is out, I will probably spend most of my gaming time in it. During those last weeks, I tested coop play of Ghost Recon Wildlands and got a lot of fun in this critically underrated game. After a CoD-like GR: Future Soldier episode that I hated, Wildlands is back to requiring some mission preapration and tactical thinking, instead of rushing into action mindlessly as in Future Soldier. And thank God, the bot-partners that stole the game from you and did all the work in most occasions in Future Soldier are not here anymore when you play coop games.
Enjoy your gaming weekend MOP readers. Cheers!!

Your turn!

No time for MMOs >.<, final week of my degree so I need to actually do stuff for once.

But I did sneak in some Sonic Mania from time to time, that's great.

And this week: Utakata is always emphasizing her pigtails, because with out them I would always look like this: (See: Image attached). :(

Also this week: WoW and my experiments with PvP. (Hey, I want those weapon artifact unlocks!) And how I found out there are no Elin Gunners released for TERA for this past week on the North America side of things. (I seemed to be much more fruitful with the as for mentioned PvP.) /sigh

Have a great week and weekend folks! <3

I have been trying to play ESO however the lag in that game has gone up to 330-340ms. It has really become unplayable from Australia so unfortunately I will have to cancel my subscription, which will leave me playing zero MMO’s.

On the non MMO side I have been spending some time playing an early release game called Factorio. Sunk many hours into it and still only scratched the surface.

I’m playing Overwatch, of course, and Minecraft. I also just finished West of Loathing, which is completely charming and totally worth buying.

I’m planning on trying out some gigantic. Diving deeper into BDO (The game is a little overwhelming). Work on my Hearthstone decks. Maybe some Overwhatch, HoTS, or FF14 on Sunday. Have a great weekend everybody and enjoy the eclipse.

I just bought all the parts for a crazy overkill computer so am playing the waiting game. My current gaming PC can still run most things at medium but its nickname is Ol’ Shocky for a reason. I’ll scavenge the SSDs from it and maybe by next month I will be able to get a new 1440 monitor for PC Overkill by the time it all arrives.

Probably Final Fantasy XIV and League of Legends will be the two main games I play this weekend. Likely will poke around some other games but for now those are the two that have been taking up most of my attention.

Also waiting with bated breath for a certain thing next week that aye can’t be talkin about.

Brianna and others mentioned the eclipse, so I wanted to add that I live in north Nashville and we are under siege by travelers and traffic :). Been seeing some bare shelves in grocery stores. Regardless, Nashvillian’s are happy to have all the visitors!

I have been involved in astro imaging for a long time (when I’m not gaming!) and was asked to track the sun for our eclipse party at work. (300+ people expected). So of course, I’m over the moon (pun) getting asked to do this, and being a space nut, I hope I don’t hyperventilate before I can get to the party. I will use my telescope to show the image of the eclipse on a 20 foot monitor.

I was just out this morning practicing, and noticed 3 new sunspots just showed up this week in time for the eclipse, and wanted to share the image.

Otherwise, it’s Overwatch as usual. Just hit level 500 last night. Pharah main.

That is a great idea, and a very nice scope. You’ve inspired me to drag my old Meade out of the shop. Now I need to find my box of filters…

Added a blank image so the snapshot doesn’t hog the page.

On-topic, this weekend I may play a bit of Conan Exiles, and I need to rewrite my Target scripts for my Star Citizen setup. After I rewrite the gcode for my printer (work comes first).

We’re gonna hit southeast of Nashville, between it and Murfreesboro. I’m hoping to find a spot that’s not really crowded off of I-840, east of Smyrna. :)

Reader

That’s a good place to try. Good luck!

Yep that’s what I was telling my wife. :) I go up that way all the time when I’m trying to avoid the traffic heading into Nashville on my motorcycle. I-840 is nice and quiet by comparison. lol

Reader

oh, I should post this disclaimer to everyone planning to view the eclipse – please be careful! Really, really easy to harm your eyes in seconds. And I would not ever trust looking through a scope even though it has a good solar filter. Too many things to go wrong. Even though I have a very trusted solar filter, I only use a camera to view the sun on a computer.

My Mother was telling me I should pull my blinds down for this eclipse. I had to explain to her that I won’t go blind (no pun intended) if I leave them up. However, there significant damage to my eyes if I viewed the entire thing without eye protection directly. I think some folks believe the sun emits death rays during this though. o.O

Reader
Skardon

lol – death rays! I’ve heard some other wild stuff as well.

Reader
Utakata

Every time I keep hearing this eclipse thing, I keep thinking of this:

“All that you touch
And all that you see
All that you taste
All you feel
And all that you love
And all that you hate
All you distrust
All you save
And all that you give
And all that you deal…”
