WRUP: A brief rundown on the new version of the site edition

SO many things.

Why did you pick this new theme?
Well, because we never really picked the old theme, we just found something that worked during our month-long melange of panic, excitement, and delirium in 2015. Seriously, absolutely none of us was certain of what was going on during that period of time. I think at one point I briefly considered converting to whatever that religion is that reverse penguins.

Is it working right?
Well, if you’re reading this right now? Yeah, probably! Otherwise… well, I guess not. Or maybe we reverted. So you tell me. I hope so!

What advantages does this new theme have over the old one?
Lots! I assume. You’re talking to someone who had a car for a year before realizing that there was no need to be scared of changing the radio presets, I have no idea what this new thing is capable of and at this point I’m terrified to ask.

Why did you choose this specific color scheme?

Who’s Zorblax?
We have already said way, way, way too much.

Is every What Are You Playing going to be like this from now on?
Probably not, I was kind of snippy about ruining the usual streak of this feature anyhow.

Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): I’m super excited about the new Pokemon Go raiding event despite having those Pokemon already (and nearly full capacity to boot!), so that’s happening, as well as hopefully a trade session of ten to help me clear space. I may also play some Undertale for the game’s birthday on Saturday.

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): So here’s the thing. If the site overhaul has gone well, I’m going to be playing the harvester game in Star Wars Galaxies because I really neglected my harvies the last week or two while we worked, and there’s nothing sadder than pixel mining installations that are literally on fire because I forgot to pay their maintenance. However, if it’s the site that is on fire, I’ll be playing a brand-new online minigame called Everybody Panic instead.

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): There’s not actually a lot of certainty about what I’ll be playing. Sure, I’ll dip into Final Fantasy XIV, but the patch is out on Tuesday and I’ve accomplished most of my before-patch goals. I’ll tool around a bit on World of Warcraft, maybe. There’ll be some things to do in Granblue Fantasy. But for most of my time? Honestly, no idea just yet.

Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): It would certainly be nice to hit 120 on a character in World of Warcraft one of these days, but I’m trying to diversify my gaming time with other titles like Dungeons & Dragons Online and The Elder Scrolls Online. Also, I’m logging into WildStar to pay my respects.

Your turn!
