Hello, parents! There’s no need to be alarmed, it’s just me, your friendly neighborhood superhero! And you’ve no need to fret; your children are completely safe with me, Entirely Avoidable Hazard Man! With me around, your children won’t hurt themselves by tripping and falling, they’ll hurt themselves due to the variety of hazardous materials and environments that could be quickly removed if I had expended even the slightest effort to think about it!
First, let’s go for a ride in my wonderful knife car, filled with haphazard razor blades, jagged metal, sharpened dashboard, and possibly some expired bottles of fruit juice. Then they can enter my Lair of Ignored Building Codes, complete with rickety staircases that lack railings, open holes which could easily be covered by the tipping pile of lumber nearby, and exposed nails and wires! We can go trick-or-treating together, when I take them to visit my neighbors who only give unwrapped candy and unhygenic fruit!
So rest easy, parents, because Entirely Avoidable Hazard Man is on the case in my bright costume which strobes intermittently to trigger epileptic fits. Please, let us know how safe you feel in the comments here on What Are You Playing.
Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): I have a lot, but I’ll be trying to get more/better Mewtwo in Pokemon Go this weekend since it’ll be so much more common. Oh, and Chikarita for community day will happen, I guess. I haven’t subscribed to Nintendo’s new (required for online play) system, but I do kind of want to hit some Splatoon 2. We’ll see what happens.
Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Definitely doing some Star Wars Galaxies, and I want to go get some fall stuff done, not that it feels like fall out there. I wish more MMOs did fall as an experience, not just Halloween. I should really branch out to some other games. Maybe when our workload lessens, I will go back to Guild Wars 2; I’d really like to play through the season now. So like, November.
Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): I’ve finished the main push of new story content in Final Fantasy XIV, but I’ve still got plenty more to do with the new patch and on alts, so that’ll be my main focus. Probably some other lighter stuff here and there.
Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): It’s a busy weekend for me, so probably not much gaming. I am trying to wrap up some tricky Northern Mirkwood quests in Lord of the Rings Online to make progress in that zone, and I do need to get a whole bunch of Drustvar quests done in World of Warcraft to unlock world quests.
