WRUP: Moving forward, there are going to be some changes around this prison edition
New prison rule #1: No one is to use “shiv” as a verb any more. Last month there was a big debate over whether or not someone was shivved or just stabbed and we want to avoid that in the future.
New prison rule #2: Just because you’re in jail doesn’t mean that you can’t display a standard of culture, so we are instituting a new mandatory ballroom dancing class for all prisoners running for two hours. We’ll have a rotating schedule for that.
New prison rule #3: Please consult with the guards before enacting your escape plan. We’re not going to stop you, we just want to be able to time dramatically running down the hall at the last moment so that everyone is very excited.
New prison rule #4: The ballroom dancing class has been cancelled. Yeah, we realized that was never a good idea. Finishing school visiting hours are still on.
New prison rule #5: Let the guards know What Are You Playing and whether or not they will need to break up any arguments over cigarettes which may result from it. We don’t want any more arguments over cigarettes. You shouldn’t be smoking anyhow, it’s bad for you.
Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): Actually, I’m a volunteer at Anime Expo in Los Angeles, so not much gaming beyond Pokemon Go on Sunday. So much Squirtle Squad hype! Also, no spoilers, but the My Hero Academia movie premier made me feel things. Careful who you watch it with this fall!
Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Not Guild Wars 2? I’ll probably play some Trove, and maybe I’ll get a chance to dip into Project Gorgon this weekend. Last weekend I didn’t get to play anything at all, which broke my momentum/pattern a bit, and this week I’ve been swamped in work and kinda just don’t want to sit in this desk anymore, heh. We’ll see.
Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): There’s Heaven-on-High farming and such to do in Final Fantasy XIV, I’m actually getting pretty close to the fabled high-level rank in Granblue Fantasy, and I have so many single-player games competing for my attention. So I have lots of options.
Matt Daniel (@Matt_DanielMVOP): I think I’m going to be jumping back into Final Fantasy XIV to check out Heaven-on-High and get caught up on my story quests, thanks to some prompting from Eliot. Aside from that, I’ve recently rolled up a fresh Monster Hunter World character with some friends of mine (just in time, coincidentally, for the MHW-FFXIV crossover that pits hunters up against FF’s Behemoth), and this time I’ve resolved to use only weapons I’m not already familiar with; I’ve never touched the bow in the entirety of my Monster Hunter career, so I reckon I’ll be trying my hand at archery and probably getting brutally murdered by some big nasties in the process.
MJ Guthrie (@MJ_Guthrie, blog): As I am at TennoCon this weekend, pretty much all my time will be spent immersed in Warframe. Not that I’d even have the time, but I can’t log in and play anything else anyway since my laptop’s power cord is back home on my desk.
Patron Pierre: Destiny 2 and State of Decay 2 for me this weekend. I’m tempted to do another playthrough of the Uncharted games on PS4 (starting from 1 and going all along to 4 and even to the Lost Legacy episode), we’ll see… On the MMO front, Eliot has tempted me a lot with his CMA on Final Fantasy XI. FFXI was my very first MMO and nostalgia hits me harder with this one than with any other MMO. But it will eat up so much of my time… Time will tell if I yield. :D Enjoy your gaming weekend dear MOP readers!
