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!!
