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.
