WRUP: Guess the person edition

Sometimes, our work chat is mature and productive and focuses on useful things. Sometimes I just use it to come up with creative burns. These are all things I typed on Friday and they’re funny. Names omitted, though! Guess the person.

He looks like someone stretched a human skin on an animatronic frog’s body from a children’s musical show. At six years old, his mother sent out invitations to birthday gatherings because he was never going to a party. He has a great personality in the same way that a blank notebook has a great plot. He looks how ordering a two-liter soda for yourself feels. If he were Native American, his spirit animal would be an empty manilla folder. In high school his list of “character concepts” for D&D looked like his algebra homework.

Have fun speculating or just reusing these in the comments of What Are You Playing! Or just let us know what you’re playing this weekend. That’s fun too.

Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): ​Probably just some Pokemon Go for community day since I have E3 articles to write, which sucks, since some of the games and people at E3 reminded me of what I have on my gaming To Do list. Ah well. Maybe I can do pirating again next week or so.

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Trove again for me. Sub still going! Finished the pre-Geode quest line this week, so now I am back to my normal haunts. I’ll also be trying out at least one of the games I put on my summer to-try list, pulled from all the crap I’ve bought on Steam but never tried or finished. Just not sure which one yet!

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): I’ve got some tasks and RP in Final Fantasy XIV, finishing up my Final Fantasy XI, and also now I have more stuff to do in Granblue Fantasy… which I will all try to fit in between various antics like finishing my house purchase. Whee.

Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): I am up to my radioactive armpits in Fallout 4 right now, but I might tool around with a new World of Warcraft Horde Shaman and dig deeper into Star Trek Online’s Victory is Life expansion.

MJ Guthrie (@MJ_Guthrie, blog): I’ll be helping some friends forge their way through an instance in Lord of the Rings Online. Then with leftover time I am going to split between some survival games, likely ARK: Survival Evolved, Conan Exiles, and Subnautica. Of course, something new and shiny might come along and distract me… (like the House Flipper that I so want to dive in and try).

Your turn!

This week: I don’t really have much to say. :(

Also this week: I also leveled a Druid in WoWstar. Well…it was the last of the Class Halls I hadn’t seen. So I took some Birthday money I had left over…and bought a Cheeze Level Booster, in case I didn’t level her the proper way in time before the 8.O BfA Patch kicked in…

…I am not sure what to think of them though, as I never had a Druid that high before. But they’re sort of a Gnomish Army Knife in a cat suit. Anyrates and anyroads, I would of prefer if my Troll’s Cat Form was a Miqo’te instead. o.O

Have a great week and weekend folks! <3

Not much gaming. Been churning out content for a D&D 5e/Pathfinder Setting I plan on Kickstarting. Got done with the races for the 5e version today.

I did manage to get in some No Man’s Sky and Skyforge on PS4 and a good deal of Pokemon Go. Got a Shiny Larvitar

Also, I have been playing Pokemon Ultra Moon, but took a break to work on the Pokedex as well as my competitive team for Pokemon X.

Finally, I have Revelation Online downloaded on my computer. I wanted to play Blade & Soul but gave up trying to get it to install. So my backup’s were BDO or Revelation Online. Revelation online seems closer to B&S and I love the wings/flight, and while I like the time I’ve spent in BDO more than my incredibly brief experience with Revelation online, I think I wanna wait to see if BDO ever does come to console. What does the Massively Community think? Is Revelation Online worth a casual playthrough, or should I just go ahead and redownload BDO on my PC?

Always wanted to go back and try a SWG emu again (going with Legends because that’s the only game I knew of SWG), but they all ask for discs. So I went on Ebay expecting to be charged like too much, but then I found a bloke in NSW selling the damn collector’s edition of the game for $18, so I snagged that up right and easy. Everything inside in mint condition.

Planning on moving out, so that’s going to be something and a half.

One of my other big loves is football. So gaming will take a backseat for a few weeks. Although I might play POE2 here and there.

Levelling up my new Trinity Prime in Warframe. I don’t think she will replace Octavia or Inaros (or Ivara), but it’s always fun to mess about with a new frame.

Also, a bit of ESO. I’m trying VERY hard to like the Warden, but it’s simply not a fun for me personally as my primary Bosmer Nightblade.

Finally, having installed Bluestacks on my desktop PC, I can play some of the mobile games I favour from my phone or tablet…except on the larger screen. Webzen’s Shot Online launched a few months ago, and as it’s the weekend of the US Open golf championship, I’m enjoying the synergy. The visuals don’t translate quite as well, of course, but it’s a game with fairly solid physics, and I enjoy playing with others all around the world (the South Koreans seems to be particularly adept). ;)

I’m playing World of Warcraft again. So far that has been 1 hour of setting up all of my addons and 30 minutes of actual game play. Why do I ever uninstall this game? I always come back to WoW eventually; at this point that’s a given. Why do I insist on putting myself through this every time?

The main reason I’m playing is because I’d like to get another character or two up to 110 before BfA. I’d like to get all my characters to 110 but realistically that will never happen. That train hasn’t left the station since stopping in Pandaria. So far I have a Priest and a Monk at 110 and I’d like to also finish leveling my Demon Hunter and Rogue, both of which are already at 100+ and maybe my Warrior which is still somewhere in WoD.

Other than WoW, there are a couple of mobile games I’ll be playing, Paladins Strike mostly but also checking out the new mobile version of Ark. The poor optimization in Ark has kept me from ever purchasing the real game, well, that and the fact that I don’t really enjoy survival games. Paladins Strike has become one of my favorite games to play when I only have a few minutes for a game. I like how this mobile version plays even better than the hero shooter version on a Steam.

I’ve decided I’m just going to wait (however long it’s going to be) for Blizz to launch the Vanilla WoW. I’m sure, as many have said, that it won’t be a s fun as I remember, blah, blah. But I’m confident the nostalgia will be strong enough to enjoy it for a while. I look forward to getting after some of the more exotic and elite pets for a hunter, and hoping for some old-fashioned Southshore/Tarren Mill brawls on a PvE server.

Mom’s birthday tomorrow, so hectic weekend for me. We’ll go to a party today and tomorrow we may have lunch together.

Outside that, same old, same old. Fallen Earth is taking quite a bit of my attention now. It’s a really clunky game but i’m enjoying quite a bit. I also took to maybe later play a Wrath P-Server so i can twink on 79. No pressure to raid, and the pvp scene is quite decent.

And drawing. I’m drawing a lot. Too much, actually.

Got into a new “project” of sorts, called Project A E S T H E T I C S. The gist is simply me trying my best to relearn how to paint while attempting my hand into assimilating the aesthetics of pixel art, neon art and mostly retro art, something like that. Don’t ask me the minute details, please.

First character is just a sketch of my japanese druid, Neimi. She’s mostly a vagrant, deeply faithful and curious, and a bit naive.

The rest are the two drawings i did for the project. It’s a hellish path, to relive and relearn painting.

Catch ya lata.

I know that your art can get hectic sometimes, Bruno, but I really enjoy seeing the things you create. It’s all very interesting from here.

Be well, pal,

Too much is purely subjective, as long as it’s fun… draw on! And thank you your sharing your work.

Wrap Up E3 edition for me. Yes, I’m taking the opportunity to throw some E3 stuff in here. Guess what type of person I am?

Winner of E3 this year? Not EA. All bias aside, they really didn’t present anything worthwhile. Anthem, if you have seen the actual extended gameplay and not the trailer stuff, is going to be worth a look. But that game didn’t require E3.

Game Winner of E3? Cyberpunk 2077. All of those who were invited to the 50 min demo presentation, where they went from character customization to advanced gameplay, had nothing but glowing reports. Better than Witcher 3, from what I gather, in every respect. And it is an RPG. A single player RPG for those who need that in their lives. o/ *raised hand*

Most talked about Fallout 76. Heh. You guys know whys and therefores on this latest gaming saga. I’m looking forward to it, either way. I posted enough about that. Heh.

Best Indie: Sea of Solitude. Player tries to discover why they became a monster. Drama and fun gameplay. What could be better?

And there is more, much more, on the horizon. It was a very good year for E3 this year.

In the meantime, it is more Blade & Soul for me. I’m scheduled for my first run in a top tier raid tomorrow. A scary proposition as it is my first run and I don’t want to let the team down. In addition, the events dropping on the 20th will keep me busy.

And dare I say it, it’s back to the Switch for filler game time. Fortnite is on the list and more Splatoon 2.

That is it for the coming week. We will see what else pops up on the radar. Have a great week everyone!

I saw the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer that was released, and I am extremely interested. Even if one deducts 20% potential rating on the grounds of “possible hype-y bullshit”, it still looks fascinating! Gonna be keeping my eye on this one!

Anthem looks very slick, but I’m just not feeling it right now. It looks like Firefall and Destiny had a baby, and I’ve already played and liked both of those games. We shall see.

Wishing you a great week, Rafe!

Indeed. Anthem is still less revolutionary than Casey Hudson would have you believe. So we will see, but it is getting more interesting as we get more and more info.

Bonus point week in SWL went very well. I almost completely filled out the ability sheets for all 4 of my weapons other than some elites and the capstone abilities to get the themed outfits. On the last day I brought the alts out of storage and completed enough Kingsmouth quests to get them a full bar of starter abilities. Now that my main is well into Egypt I’m going to start actively questing with one alt and then roll out the other after the first completes the Solomon Island region.

The usual frustrations with gear/progression are starting to irritate me, along with a brand new frustration in the form of the agent system; seriously, 60+ hours of gameplay and not one single frickin’ agent dossier as a quest reward. I’m getting tired of looking at the same 2 generic faces and running the same missions for crap rewards, so other than the weekly special mission that actually gives you something decent I’m ignoring the system.

In spite of that, the visual and gameplay variety of my three characters keeps me going, along with the realization that when my main reaches Transylvania I’ll start playing content that’s completely new to me.

For what it’s worth, I really enjoyed the Transylvania zone once I got there in the original Secret World. One of my favorite zones in the game.

Not exactly what I expected (which was a good thing), but enough interesting bits throughout that I felt it was worthy of the name Transylvania.

Enjoy!

All I can promise myself for this weekend is to play some of the Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion. Watching the Splatoon 2 World Championships finale at E3 reminded me why I got into the game in the first place. The energy was really electric with lots of great plays by the teams, some of which left my jaw dropping, they were so unexpected. The crowd was really excited, too, which adds to my feeling that Splatoon 2 is such an infectiously fun game.

Now I’m going to go inevitably fail a few times in my attempts to rescue an Octoling from the underground. I’m trying to 100% the content before the Splatfest next Saturday, when I’ll also be completing another round of moving stuff out of my apartment. How am I going to get it all done?

You’ll manage it soldier! Those Octolings are counting on you! :-)

Thanks! I’m doing better on the challenges than I thought, lol. As of now, it seems like I could finish everything if I play later tonight. That’s the first time I’ve blazed through gaming content in a long while, and it feels like a nice change of pace. Soon my Octoling will join the other newly-liberated ones enjoying fun in the sun. :P

Reader
rafael12104

Well, I’m not sure how it will all get done, but it will. One way or another. ;)

Ah but not to worry, Splatoon 2 will always be there later too. I’m tackling it again this week. It is so much fun.

Isn’t it great? What kind of weapons do you like to use? I find myself gravitating to long-range ones like the Jet Squelcher and Splatlings, but I try to practice with a variety in case the maps don’t mesh well with those types.

Reader

You should play in the comp itself. I betcha would really kick some tentacles if you did! /de geso

Being more competitive would be fun but I am too shy at the moment to actively try and find a team lol.

Well you’ve got good stuff to look forward to IMO. So much happened on the Spla2n front! If you get a chance, be sure to check out the uploads of the World Championships but a few of the opener games are weirdly out of order on Nintendo’s Youtube.
