WRUP: What to do if you want to attract a lot of ghosts to your house for some reason edition

So you want to attract a whole lot of ghosts to your house for some reason. Well, far be it from us to stop you! Here are some important tips to consider for this goal.

  • Make sure you live in a reality where ghosts are real. This one probably isn’t one, based on lots of evidence, but if you’re really gung-ho about it don’t let that stop you.
  • Location is important. If your house is located on an ancient burial ground, so much the better. If your house is located on an ancient burial ground which was itself located on a burial ground, great. If not, just go dig up some burial grounds and dump them in your front yard, that should anger up the spirits just fine.
  • Provide a welcoming atmosphere. A bright, airy, well-lit living space is great for human beings, but it’s like living in a tin room full of dog farts for ghosts. Make sure the place is dank, full of mildew, and covered in cobwebs.
  • Offer all the accoutrements of home. Considerate haunted homeowners make sure to provide lots of chains to rattle, old paintings to possess, and suits of armor to pose in hallways. If these things are beyond your humble means, use plastic chains and pose discount action figures in the hallway.
  • Write down why you thought this was a good idea. It’s a really awful idea, and writing down why it seemed like a good idea will help you when you are later asking why you thought otherwise.

We hope all of these things help you with your goal. Let us know how things are going in the comments of What Are You Playing. Or let us know about your gaming plans, that works too.

Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): ​Stop, stop! It can’t be the weekend yet! I have so much more to write!

Pokemon Go will probably happen a bit due to the quests. If I get enough work done, I might do ARK Park again, just to check out launch a bit more. I’m kind of debating about picking up Project Gorgon and/or Sea of Thieves, but… I’m so behind on gaming right now (sorry Overwatch, Monster Hunter Online, The Elder Scrolls Online, and all of those Steam titles I’ve only half-finished if that).

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Trove Trove Trove Trove. Also probably some Guild Wars 2 Super Adventure Box, but mostly Trove. Trying to decide whether to splurge for the new class or just keep grinding my current ones!

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): The usual stuff in Final Fantasy XIV and World of Warcraft, probably tossing in some PixARK to mix things up. Also continuing reading through an RPG line that’s finally dead after an unexpected revival, but that’s not really playing something.

Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): I think I might have more time than usual to game this weekend, but there are more games than usual from which to choose. I wouldn’t mind a couple of long sessions on the RIFT Prime server to push my character toward level 50, some more time getting to know Project Gorgon (if I can figure out some hitching issues), and good ol’ rep grinding in World of Warcraft.

Patron Pierre: For this long (3-day long) Easter weekend, I have nothing planned except gaming and leisure time, that’s so cool :D I’ve started playing Far Cry 5 and I like the game a lot, so many dead cultists on schedule this weekend :D . I’m still playing XCOM 2 too, and aliens will join cultists in the slaughtering process ;-) . And I’ll probably add some World of Tanks and PUBG time to get my share of PvP gaming. Enjoy your gaming weekend MOP readers, and let us know what are your plans in the comments.”

Your turn!

I’m moving away from my mobile gaming binge, keeping a few around but otherwise waiting until a new phone (this year?) to go to the rest; for reasons of processors and batteries.

A little messing around in other games, but mostly RIFT Prime. Mostly reaching my goal for my first month: ‘done’ (except long term stuff like rares and artifacts) Freemarch, Stonefield, and Scarlet Gorge mostly. Working on wrapping up SG and progressing through Scarwood Reach. Maybe I can get some Prime Challenge stuff done, but I doubt it and I dislike their system for it – why have people rush this? Likely getting a pack that includes up to 60 more days.

More WoW, more ES: Legends, adding in some ESIV: Oblivion. After yardwork and Easter candy.

Played Shroud a bit and wasnt very impressed. Quests are bugged, combat is dull, no voices, progression seems pretty simple.

Played new SC patch, peformance seems better, but still not much to the game yet.

Struggling to find anything to play.

Trying to take advantage of the long weekend to get some rest after a non-stop year so far.

Main target this weekend is to get through the Clockwork City story in ESO, so that I can jump straight into Summerset Isle when it releases. I still have plenty of older content to do in ESO, but the minor story connection between these two means I want to get it done now.

Also been playing some more Ghost Recon Wildlands, I enjoy the game and have been playing it on and off since release when my friends have been about. Ghost War remains a surprisingly good PvP addition to the game, given that it launched as just PvE. And a friend and I did the whole of the Fallen Ghosts DLC yesterday, which was entertaining as well.

My list of games I need to play is increasing though, I have both FFXV and Ni No Kuni II purchased and waiting to play on Steam. Not to mention still having the latest free content in FFXIV to play through. But one step at a time.

Wow, Pierre, my gaming schedule is Far Cry 5 and XCOM 2 as well, though I supplement that with Ark and FFXIV.

Write down why you thought this was a good idea.

Are you kidding? I’d open up a Bed and Breakfast. But call it a “Dead and Breakfast.” Do you realize how many people would shell out good money to sleep in a haunted house? And if they get scared and run off during the night you won’t even have to feed them that breakfast.

This week: Stuck with the folks this weekend, so no games for me till I return. :(

Also this week: I think it’s Easter this weekend, I also think it’s April Fools this weekend too. Probably why my parents have been serving me Xmas cake. o.O

…have a great week and weekend folks! And in whatever you do this…err, double holiday! <3

realised i had the platinum just from log in bonuses to get Nidus in Warframe so along with chasing the last coouple of trophies in Monster Hunter World thats been my saturday.

Also made the dreadful mistake of buying Rainbow Six Siege on PS4. literally every single make i have tried has had someone on my team turn and kill everyone else with friendly fire and end the match. I looked it up and its a MASSIVE problem with the console version as so many tweens see it as an easy way to make ‘funny epic rage montages’ for youtube, ubisofts done nothing about it and when i asked around on the reddit and such the response was “yeah on console you literally cannot use matchmaking anymore those guys broke it, you do premades or not at all” and since nobody i know plays it thats not at all for me.
I’ve played games for a very long time and never seen such a straight up “this kills your potential new user influx dead” like this. Easily the worst videogame experience i have had in at least a decade. Apparently its fine on PC but unless you have the friends for a full team avoid this game like the plague. You are more likely to get a successful match out of the 20 people playing lawbreakers.

I guess but its rare? i’ve played a grand total of 12 hours over 2 years apparently so maybe its changed?

Farming some Kuva in Warframe‘s new Kuva Survival mission so I can finally build the Harrow, Nidus, & Octavia ‘frames. I’ve had most of the parts for them for months now, but always put it off because I find Kuva Siphons way too awkward and annoying.

Mostly playing Spellforce 3, which I picked up this week and am enjoying immensely. A dialogue-heavy fantasy RPG/RTS hybrid with graphics and gameplay of a type similar to Pillars of Eternity, it was apparently rather buggy and broken when released in December but seems to’ve been all patched up now. ~touch wood~
