Let me tell you something, you young’uns, everything you do these days is different from how it was when I was your age. Based on my hazy half-remembered childhood from some 70 years ago, keeping in mind that my memory is doubtful in its accuracy because I argued with you for a quarter of an hour that the host of Jeopardy was named Alan Trebek, everything was better when the only place you could play as a kid after school let out was the city dump. Back in my day, the dump was dangerous! And we liked it!
There were old fridges that could lock you inside if you climbed into them and some of your friends shut the door! There were dogs, I assumed! There were… did I mention the fridges? There were fridges! But these days, you all sanitize your dumps by encouraging children not to play in them! What with your video games and your rock music and your video games about rock music and your What Are You Playing and your rock music about video games and your Internet comics about rock music…
Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): It’s Adventure Week in Pokemon Go, which hopefully turns into Reclaim My Pant Size Weeks in real life. I’ll probably also play some Smash Bros at the console party (and Fire Emblem Heroes on my phone between matches if it ends up dominating the scene again). I feel like hitting up Sea of Thieves, but since I have so many social obligations, I may just do a few quick matches in Overwatch or Splatoon 2.
Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): I have a feeling that what I should do involves some World of Warcraft, but lately I’ve mostly just been feeling Final Fantasy XI and Final Fantasy XIV. Which, as good fortune would have it, are also what I should do. So that works out well.
Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): I’ve been leveling up a Rogue for the first time in World of Warcraft and am actually really grooving on it. Maybe it’s the pirate theme? Arrr! The holiday weekend should afford some extra gaming time, so I’ll be trying out a couple of new titles, catching up in Secret World Legends, and seeing how much progress I can make in Star Trek Online before the expansion drops.
