WRUP: Tips to having a great date when you’re both just sitting in your car for four hours edition

    
61
This is nice, right? Just being in a car?

So actual dates are stupid and gross, right? Not necessarily! You can trick your date into having a great experience when the whole night just consists of you sitting in your car for four hours! Here’s how to probably make that happen, why not, it could happen.

  • Remove any vermin from the car before the date. Look, if you’re just driving to the restaurant, she might not notice the cockroach fighting with the rat in the backseat. But if you’re in the car the whole time? Ask the roach and rat to leave until the date is over. Drop them off someplace nice.
  • Say “this is nice, huh?” every fifteen minutes. Your date will not think it’s remotely nice, but contradicting you would be rude.
  • Have a minimum of two bottles of Snapple in the glove compartment. You don’t want your date to think you’re just avoiding actually going somewhere, so having a full cooler is right out. A couple of beverages, though, help speed the time away.
  • You can get away with making three “wrong turns” that result in 10-minute long detours. Any more than that and your date will suspect you intend to drive toward the nearest pier, jam down the accelerator, and then leap from the moving vehicle whilst shouting the name of a professional wrestler.
  • Do not drive toward the nearest pier, jam down the accelerator, and then leap from the moving vehicle whilst shouting the name of a professional wrestler. Doing this can ruin your chances of getting an OBE.

If this process worked, please don’t tell us about it in What Are You Playing. Just let us know what you’re playing this weekend. That’s what the name means.

Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): ​Is catching up on sleep a game? No, but seriously, Pokemon Go is happening. Actively, not just pressing the button on my Go+. I fully intend on trying out the new friend system. Got about forty locals added already, but if any MOP users want some long distance gifts, check my Twitter for my code. Splatoon 2 has a Splatfest going on too. One of the kids in my PoGo group just got it for his birthday after surviving to middle school with no video games (long story that ends with the mom not worrying about her son getting “addicted”), and he’s been wanting to talk games. I figure I can get in a few rounds to keep my street cred with the younger gamers, hah.

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Aaaahhhh. Welp. I bought Project Gorgon and Staxel and a singleplayer indie 4X game on the Steam sale. My damage wasn’t too bad! And I’m gonna take advantage of the Trove sale. So I’ll probably be in some or all of those!

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): The school year is finally over, purchasing my house is finally almost finished, and maybe I can focus on doing stuff in Final Fantasy XIV and Final Fantasy XI again. Hopefully. I do need to head down to see my in-laws on Sunday, though, so there are limitations.

Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): My MMO gaming will probably be centered around working on a Horde alt for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth and maybe a little bit of Northern Mirkwood questing in Lord of the Rings Online. Aside from that, I’m pushing forward in both Fallout 4 and Pillars of Eternity. It’s a good summer of gaming so far!

MJ Guthrie (@MJ_Guthrie, blog): I will actually be tromping about ARK: Survival Evolved in tech gear and playing with the building there, so that will take a chunk of time. I might have also finally purchased House Flipper. Gotta get some remodeling done! I will also be spending plenty of time in Secret World Legends for the anniversary event. Other stuff will be played as it strikes my fancy and I find free time.

Your turn!

Hey, I thought first that we should share the experiences in the car back seat from our teenage days. I am disappointed :)

Anyway, I have started to play ESO after being disappointed completely of Bless and I have decided finally that I want to start raiding again in WildStar. I finished only one raid there. Also I will try out Crew2 beta tonight.

I want to try to get into ESO, but for some reason I can’t. I guess I do need my hand held because sometimes because I’m overwhelmed with choices. That’s also why I can spend hours in a sandbox, but still get nothing done – but it’s fun :)

Anyway, this weekend I finished up Neverwinter’s event and I’ve been just hanging out and doing quests here and there. I’m going to try out the foundry, too.

Quite interested in a certain footy match that is playing today. Finishing up Summerset, quality experience all round…..

But, they made the end boss look like someone cosplaying as the main boss (best way that I can describe it) while turning them into a ‘muahahaha’ cartoon villain.

That kind of let me down.

I’m still trying to figure out what OBE stands for. Order of the British Empire? Obsidian Energy? Out of Body Experience?

Today I’ve already played Warframe, Overwatch, and Stationeers. Tomorrow will likely be more of the same. I may dip my toes in some of the other titles I bought from the Steam sale, but those are the three I’m likely to focus on.

I saw 2001: A Space Odyssey in 70mm yesterday, it’s all part of the 50th anniversary thing.

I had never seen a film from that era projected the way it was intended ever before, only ever the home-video re-releases.
Heck i’ve barely seen any films projected in film before honestly, been digital most of my life, so it was fun seeing all the scratches and occasional frame-jitter.

Just this week I watched for the first time since I was a bored affected high school student many (many) moons ago – Barry Lyndon – Kubrick’s least talked about film. It was fantastic. See it if you can. With the state of today’s film I do not think there will ever be as talented a director as he was. Art film is done.

This week: I think it’s Pride this weekend, so I’ll probably be doing something about that…

Also this week: Poking at Blade & Soul. And finishing up my tenure Legion before BfA decides to kick in.

…with that, have a happy and pink one! And also a great week and weekend folks! <3

Bit far for me to actually see the small nuances.

It’s also a excuse to make you post screenshots <3

Well, my moving plans got postponed due to rain, so I was able to finish all content in the Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion with plenty of time (even that secret boss, though it took me many attempts to get a good strategy down). Even though it’s not strictly MMO content, I will probably share a few pics tomorrow to show a little bit of what I’ve been up to. Now today I can finish up the orange juice Splatfest (team pulp!) at my leisure and continue boxing up stuff. I’m not sure I have any solid MMO plans for this weekend, but I think I’ll get back into that once my move is completed.

If Splatoon was a PvE based MMO, I think would be really interested in playing it. I don’t think it is though. I am not even sure in runs on a normal computer. So /de geso. :(

Sadly it’s Nintendo Switch only and the biggest emphasis is on the PvP battles though there is some single player and co-op PvE. It’s too bad because the colors and style are amazing. Nintendo, expand the Splatoon universe to more people please!

And like Windows, Switch should run on everything too! >.<

There are calculators that run Doom.

There is a PvE mode though! It’s just purely skill based and makes everyone use the same equipment, so that awesome shirt or cute hairpin you bought gets replaced by your work uniform ;(

I’ll be playing World of Warcraft and Paladins Strike when I’m not working this weekend. I have a few alts to level for BfA (assuming I stick around that long, my attention span for MMOs is fickle these days) starting with the Demon Hunter and Warlock.

I’m also pretty sure I will reach diamond rank in Paladins Stirke this weekend. They made some questionable changes in a recent update but nothing too off putting. And I’m so far impressed by how the VP in charge of Paladins Strike is so communicative with the community on Twitter, addressing the concerns with the patch and even pointing people to a few civil discussions on reddit so that the dev team can get more feedback.

However at this very moment I’m playing “ when will my bag show up on the carousel” at the airport. Right now they are averaging 4 bags every five minutes so this might take a while. At least my bags are clearly labeled with WoW and Starcraft patches so they are easily identifiable.

Despite my claim I’d never really get involved in the Battle Royale craze, I actually did mess about with some of the free versions the last couple of months to see how I’d get along…including PUBG Mobile, Ring of Elysium, Free Fire, and even a bit of Fortnite.

I know the official PC PUBG may be waning, but I picked it up during the sale, including an extra 20% (from Green Man Gaming) off the already 30% discount.

I’ve played 5 matches.
I don’t believe I’ve yet landed a shot on a single player.

My tally:
-Killed twice without ever spotting who attacked.
-Lost a (very) quick gunfight at about 50 meters.
-Killed whilst outside the safe zone (I never could find a vehicle, and was too far to make it sprinting).
-Death by Misadventure (ran myself over after exiting a speed boat too quickly).

Good times. ;)

rarely even get any hits on other players but still quite enjoy the game a round or two at a time now and then.
