The Frosty MacMurphy: Take one part Scotch, one part eggnog, one part motor oil, and one part expired eggnog. Put all of that stuff in the garbage. Pour some vodka on the rocks and drink it, you idiot.
The Sparking Maladjustment: Add two parts vodka to five thousand parts fruit juice. Put an umbrella in it. Add some glitter (edible preferred). Serve over white rice and beans.
The Humbert Humbert Hulk: Take two parts whisky, two parts additional cheaper whisky, and two parts much cheaper beer. Add in one part barbeque sauce and an entire orange. Serve in a martini glass that has a beer cozy.
The: Take fourteen parts liquid nitrogen and add your hand. Put your hand in liquid nitrogen. Do it you piece of
The Internet Manbaby: Take a break from the comments. Seriously, guy, we’re worried about you. This isn’t healthy and it’s an excuse to not grow up. Please.
The What Are You Playing: Take it away, folks!
Bonus question: What’s your favorite holiday?
Favorite holiday is Thanksgiving, no doubt. It’s one of the least commercialized holidays in the states, involves cooking good food that makes tons of leftovers, and we get several days off (for discount shopping). What else could you want?
Andy McAdams: Continue to plod my way through the Stormblood MSQ in Final Fantasy XIV. When I get frustrated with the gating and the cutscenes every 5 minutes, I’ll probably jump over to My Life at Portia. Or Rimworld as I’ve gotten the urge to pick that up again.
Favorite Holiday: St. Paddy’s Day! Though I think it has more to do with my abiding love of the color green and fiddles than anything else.
Ben Griggs (@braxwolf): Taking advantage of the XP boost from the Jester’s Festival in The Elder Scrolls Online and putting some levels on a couple of my sub-50 characters. Also, throwing pies at as many faction leaders as I can find. If I’ve got any extra time, I’ll keep working on my baby Imperial magplar that I just created this week!
My favorite in-game holiday is probably the Jester’s Festival, although the Harvestmath festival in Lord of the Rings Online is a close 2nd thanks to the incredible Haunted Burrow.
Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): I don’t know! I’m sure I’ll be dipping into Star Wars Galaxies. Ultima Online just got a patch, but I cleaned out my house a few months ago, so I’d need to resub and unload all my toons again, and I’m not sure I have that in me. Last night I tried to talk my husband into playing Guild Wars with me and my son, but that went nowhere (boy does he not love that game like I do, hah). Maybe Elder Scrolls Online. Maybe.
Not big on holidays since most of those in our culture aren’t relevant to me. I do love Halloween, though, and I’m a big fan of anything with lots of twinkling lights like Diwali.
Carlo Lacsina (@UltraMudkipEX): Getting into week 2 of the Black Desert Online old moon event. I’ve got some critiques, but I’m so glad its going on! I’ll definately be playing that. Aside from that, I’ll be spending my weekend flying home from Long Beach after a teacher’s convention.
My favorite holiday is Memorial Day because its the unofficial start of the slow summer months!
Chris Neal (@wolfyseyes, blog): In between bonking my hammer against raw metals in Legends of Aria, I plan on taking another stumble around the Torchlight Frontiers alpha, whaling on monsters in Dauntless (still mad at myself for that stream), and also getting my face absolutely rocked in Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy. Yes, this game is tough and I suck at rougelikes, don’t @ me.
My favorite holiday is easy: Halloween. It’s spookytime Christmas for me, with all of the delightful creepy decorations and the fall ambience and the candy and the colder weather and the candy and the candy….
Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): Aside from watching the Final Fantasy XIV fan festival, I will also be… playing FFXIV. Also Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Granblue Fantasy; the latter just added a new dual-wielding class, that’s my jam.
There’s no holiday better than Halloween. Seriously. Nothing better.
Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): That MUD Starmourn sure caught my eye when we did a post on it this past week, so yeah, I might actually check that out. Other than that, it’ll be more Moria delving in Lord of the Rings Online and perhaps a session with my dedicated Dungeons & Dragons Online group.
Mia DeSanzo (@neschria): My husband wants to do spring cleaning this weekend, but I will probably sneak away to play some games. I will probably play Dawn of Man, as I sometimes leave my villagers with minimal supervision, so I can do that while doing chores. Likewise, I have some beer to brew in Black Desert Online, which my character can handle without me. For more active gaming, it will be Project Gorgon and Riders of Icarus. And maybe back to BDO.
My favorite holiday is Halloween. Candy, horror movies, and dressing up like the weirdo I am– what could be better?
MJ Guthrie (@MJ_Guthrie, blog): I plan to build, build, build, and build some more. Mostly in Outpost Zero, but maybe some in Conan Exiles, too. I also hope to get some Subnautica. I guess this weekend is all about survival.
Speaking about survival, my favorite holiday is by far Halloween. It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Tyler Edwards: I’m now delving into The Division 2. It seems to be pretty much like the original, but with perhaps a bit less personality. I also need to finish farming the last few tickets to evolve my Indrik in TESO, and if I have any time to spare after that, I’ll play some Anthem.
Bonus question: I don’t really celebrate any holidays anymore, so mostly they bum me out. I do like checking out the decorations people put up for Halloween, so I guess I’ll go with that.
