Bonus question: What’s your favorite car that you ever owned?

Andy McAdams: Probably more Minecraft and The Elder Scrolls Online. I’m really enjoying the Elsweyr content so far; on the other side, work was a bit stressful this week and there’s nothing quite as cathartic as literally shaping the world around you to your whim in Minecraft.

I’m not a big car person – so I’ll just say the first new car I got – a Subaru Impreza
Ben Griggs (@braxwolf): I’m going to continue playing through the Dragonhold DLC in TESO, and will most likely jump into World of Warships to spend a little time on the premium ship that I purchased last week, the Atago.

I owned a black 2001 Hyundai Tiburon that was an absolute blast to drive. It was a small, light car with a 2.0 L engine and manual transmission. Very snappy and responsive. It felt like I was flying a TIE fighter! A lot of people think that particular model is ugly, but I liked the unique look. Alas, the back seat was too small for child car seats, so I eventually had to sell it in favor of a mid-sized sedan. Welcome to parenthood! Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): I’ve been mostly playing Star Wars Galaxies Legends, so I’ll probably keep to that. I need a new side thing, fam.

Favorite car… probably the one I have because I picked it out myself. Our cars have always been really boring workhorses, though, and we run them into the ground. When I was little, my dad had an old Plymouth Horizon TC3, and that was pretty cool. Chris Neal (@wolfyseyes, blog): The alternate job leveling project continues in Final Fantasy XIV. I’ve taken up Pugilist and am starting from the very lowest lows, but I’m also not trying to stress over it too much. There’s also a bit more Dauntless and Star Citizen to dink around in, as well as some Planet Zoo sandbox mode for those moments when I just want to relax.

My favorite car I ever owned was a 2007 Ford Crown Victoria. That thing was comfy and responsive and was just lovely to drive. I loved that car. Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): Aside from my usual FFXIV stuff, I took the time to get a character in World of Warcraft up to the point of being able to do the anniversary content (which hadn’t been a priority recently based on… well, have you followed that game the past year?), so I want to do that because I want an evil dragon mount on my account. That should pretty well set me for the weekend.

I’ll absolutely second Chris about the glory of the Ford Crown Victoria; my wife and I had one and it was an absolute dream to drive. Its only weakness was gas mileage. My second favorite is our current Subaru CrossTrek, which is a great car and would be a great car even if it weren’t bright orange. But it is bright orange. That makes it better. Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): Right now I’m trying to push far into Lord of the Rings Online: Minas Morgul so I can offer up some first impressions next week. Apart from that, I’m leveling up my Machinist in FFXIV and playing a healthy bit of The Outer Worlds. Mia DeSanzo (@neschria): I will probably drop into ArcheAge Unchained for a little bit. I have had a pretty hard week, so I will be keeping it low key.

I have a Toyota RAV4 that I am fond of. It’s red. And I once had a GMC Sonoma that was by far the most useful vehicle I have ever owned. Samon Kashani (@thesamkash): I’ll be all over ArcheAge Unchained. I finally reached a hostile zone, so hopefully the real fun begins soon.

Favorite car was my first Eclipse. Boy howdy! I thought I was so cool! Zoom zoom, vrooom! Tyler Edwards: I started on Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Onslaught expansion yesterday, and I’m already almost done. Even for the low price of one month of sub, I feel ripped off. It’s a thimble of content, and worse still, it’s so boring. Once I’m done slogging through that, I might play some Anthem to show off my new Quarian interceptor, or perhaps continue leveling Stetmann in StarCraft 2 co-op.

Bonus question: It’s adorable you think I can afford a car.

I’ve just been playing visiting my wife for an hour a day (their rules not mine but hey) Grim Dawn, and watching Mars on Netflix. Generally avoiding people and MMOs where I might have to talk to some one I know.

I’m in old school gaming land this weekend, partially because I’m fighting a nasty cold, so I’m couchbound. I pulled out my old copy of Oblivion GOTY Edition for the 360 and fired it up on the Xbox One, where I’d swear the graphics are better. Sometimes there’s no substitute for gaming from the couch. Meanwhile, I got my son a copy of the GOG version of Diablo so he could try it. And I got my original copy of Diablo II LOD working under emulation on my linux box. Good times for all.

My favorite car? Hmmm. My wife’s Forester with the heated seats and moon roof has been a lot of fun to drive … but my favorite was probably my first car, a 1982 Toyota Starlet hatchback, which I bought while I was in college. $1500 used, with low mileage and in great condition. Standard transmission. It was no longer available in the US and parts were often not available from Toyota for this particular model, so I had to hunt them down at the local junkyards to keep it running. It was totaled in an accident, and the insurance company of the guy who hit me paid me twice what I originally paid for the car, and let me keep it. I pulled the dents, bondo’ed it up, then drove it for another three years. Then I passed it on to my girlfriend (now my wife of 25 years) who drove it for another three years after that. Man, that car was awesome!

D2 LOD. Ah… yes. Those were good times. You got it running on Linux you say? Nice! I used to mess around with Linux a good bit. Love it.

Did you use a VM or did you go with Wine on Linux? I could get some games to run, but the overhead was too high to make it viable.

Reader

Nope, just vanilla wine. D2 is OpenGL, s0 it’s always been fairly easy to get running on wine. Given how old the game is, overhead isn’t a problem, and anyway wine has come a long way in terms of overhead. I’ve played WoW (private and retail), LotRO, DDO, EQ II, Landmark, TSW, and probably a few other MMO’s I can’t think of right now under wine. I haven’t owned a windows PC in at least a decade.

Reader
rafael12104

Interesting. Heh. I’ve been looking for a reason to purchase an HD. So, I’ll be a new fairly cheap HD and dedicate it to Linux and games. That sounds great to me!

I picked up The Outer Worlds for my PS4 this past Monday, and that’s basically all I’ve been playing since then.

Hour after hour, eager to see what comes next. It’s been a long time since I’ve enjoyed a game to the level of “I can’t stop playing, and I don’t wanna stop!” :-)

Is it perfect? Of course not. We all know that no game is perfect, but it’s near enough to perfect for me, at least.

The game trailers, for some reason, make the game look like it’s a comedy, or some kind of science-fiction parody, but it’s not. Maybe their marketing department was trying to get a piece of the Borderlands 3 crowd? I dunno …

Oh, there’s comedy in the game, but it comes out of the characters and the story, as happens in real life.

What is the game, then? It’s a science-fiction single-player RPG game that, on one level, is a very affectionate homage to the Firefly TV series.

There are intentional echoes of Firefly all over The Outer Worlds game, including a running joke about cargo that will make any Firefly fan chuckle in recognition. You’ll know it when you see it, and I’m not going to spoiler it here! :-)

Design-wise, the game looks like it was made with a variation of the game engine developer Obsidian used to make Fallout: New Vegas, in that it’s stylized, rather than trying to be near photo-realistic, as in the Mass Effect series.

It does very much evoke the feel of the best of the Mass Effect seies of games in it’s “a captain gathering his (or her) crew, and leading them on wild adventures” aspect.

You can play as a male or female captain — your choice of what to create — and there are six separate NPC characters you can recruit to come aboard your ship in the early stages of the game.

You can also reject, or banish, any characters you don’t like — but of course, you’ll lose any mission content those characters might have otherwise led you to …

There’s no crew romance options that I’ve seen, but I confess, I wasn’t really looking for them too hard. There may have been a brief “Flirt” option or two that I passed over.

In terms of tone and detail, the game actually veers closer to the Bioshock series than one might expect.

This is not our probable future in space, per se. It’s got a retro-tech feel at points, and certain aspects of the science in the game do not line up with our real-world science. It’s an alternative future, to be sure.

And, like the Bioshock series, there’s a strong element of social satire (i.e. satire in its original meaning of critical commentary and analysis) working in the background of this game.

I suppose, given how often developers Obsidian have been screwed over by interfering game publishers in the past — hired on to projects, and then having their release timeline impossibly shortened happened more than once, for example — I expect the devs relished the chance to offer some commentary on the subject of capitalism and corporatism run completely and utterly amok.

You do make choices in the course of the game which affect how certain plotlines play out, and not all of the choices are a clear win-win all around. Sometimes, you’re just doing the best you can, and sometimes — like Mal Reynolds and the Firefly crew — you’ll have to be bad to do good.

I think Obsidian’s got a genuine hit here, and I love it, personally.

If you’re at all interested, maybe check out some gameplay footage on YouTube, since (as above) the trailers for the game are sort of off-note. Don’t watch too much though — even the early gameplay spoilers certain things

I gotta go play some more!

Love to yas, my friends. Take care of yourselves, and each other,

Bonus: I’ve never owned a car. I don’t drive, and trust me, you’re all safer for it. I’m one one of those people who has no “feel” for driving whatsoever.

Reader

Yes. The Outer Worlds is everything that you say and more. The sleeper hit of the year. Not sure it will get game of the year because the press coverage is so low. But anyone who has played it knows the RPG goodness.

And, sadly, it must be said, Bethesda could take a lesson on game development from Obsidian.

Reader

Thanks, Rafe. I agree. I keep reminding myself to mention the game to my gamer friends (including my gamer friends here) because, as you intuit, with all the games dropping between now and Christmas (including the much-anticipated Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order), I fear that The Outer Worlds may get lost in the shuffle, and I feel it deserves better.

Gamer pals are always saying, “I want a fun game that’s not just the same old, same old” so I try to remember to say, “Try The Outer Worlds — it may be what you want!” :-)

Cheers, pal,

Cars? Oh, I love cars. My fave of all time? 1967 Camero SS just like the one in Better Off Dead down below. Never owned one but I love it. My fave cars that I have owned? I have two: 1982 Datsun 280ZX (it was a little race car) and a 2012 Chevy Camero SS convertible (pure muscle and pure fun). I’ll stop because I could go on for hours. Lol.

So this week and next week my gaming schedule is booked. I’m still playing Outer Worlds, and not regretting a minute of it. I don’t have enough time to play as much as I want, but I moving right along in the game. Great RPG!

Still working my way back through ESO and I’m enjoying it. A true MMORPG! I’m discovering many things that I overlooked before. Got my fresh start Sorc to level 20 and I plan to cap soon.

I’ve put aside Destiny 2 for now, but only because I don’t have the time, and yet I still play Anthem because the combat is so much fun.

Fallout-first. Yes I am a sub. And I’ve created my own world, as it were. But this two has take a backseat a little bit. I’m not part of whatever class warfare is going on and as soon as I can mod it the way I want, it will be a main stay.

And on top of all that, I’m thinking about Death Stranding. Oh, I know that game might not be for everyone, but I want to try it out. Unfortunately I don’t see a way of trying it before buying it so I may have to wait.

On my radar: BnS Lyn Assassins, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

The Datsun looks like a really fun car. You don’t see many of those on the street any more.

Reader
rafael12104

It was a little race car. As you can see, all engine. Lol. No, you don’t see them much these days. Collectors love them and a restored one costs a bundle. I would love to get an old beat up one just to tinker around.

They are a blast to drive. Too bad the ignorance of youth kept me from understanding what I had on my hands.

Once I get some more room to park the things I’m in the market for either a 60s era Ford Falcon or a ’64 Galaxie 500. They aren’t crazy expensive at all, you can find convertibles and they look cool. Probably easy to tinker with.

Now that I have a Jeep, which ironically is more expensive BECAUSE of it’s engine simplicity, I’m trying to learn a little repair beyond simple oil changes.

Reader
rafael12104

Oh, yes the Galaxie. I have a friend who has one and is restoring it. I get jealous looking at it and the work he is doing on it all on his own.

You will be surprised how much you can do with a simple engine. Learning how is part of the fun.

Likely going to be hunkering down and grinding more Dead By Daylight since I have a lot of petal offerings to burn on my Survivors and it’s mostly free extra bloodpoints. Also will be on Final Fantasy XIV doing whatever, probably tomestone stuff and maybe poking into Hydatos to see how the 5.1 changes have affected it. Might also dip into a bit of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 again because every time I go back to that game there’s new stuff to do in it. Then I guess I might also consider picking back up The Outer Worlds and working more on it. But I haven’t felt super compelled to keep going with it.

Bonus question: I’ve only ever had one car so far, a ’97 Honda Accord, so I guess I don’t have a choice but to pick that one.

I’m having an atomic blast with my return to Fallout 4. I’ve been itching for a Fallout FPS game so here I am. I’m thoroughly enjoying every second of the radio music in that game, and I’ve gotten into settlement building more than I expected.

Also, I had my first encounter with the Glowing Sea region of the game, and that’s a unique take on unease and dread I’ve not encountered in a video game before.

Have a radiation free weekend all!

Loved the music. Even after I’d heard all of the songs and they kept repeating I just sang along while I was killing bad guys.

I loved Fallout 4. It was so much fun.

Saving up for a Nissan Skyline R33. I’ve really wanted one for a very long time (since the first iteration of Gran Turismo on the PS1). Early next year is the target date.

As for gaming, having already logged more than 150 hours into Destiny 2 since its migration to Steam (on top of the hundreds of hours prior since launch more than 2 years ago), Red Dead Redemption 2 arrived at an appropriate time for me to take a break from the former.

Of course, I’ve only played about 2 hours of the actual single-player campaign, and invested much more into Red Dead Online. I’ve been pleasantly surprised at the lack of hostility from other players. I enjoy the relaxed pace, even as accumulating funds is not an easy task, as I’m enjoying the scenery, collecting herbs and the occasional pelt. It’s all quite lovely, interspersed with the occasional bits of shooting and violence.

I’d be remiss, of course, if I did not mention I’m also enjoying England’s tour in New Zealand (Cricket), where the weather has been better than normal for Spring, and the the Black Caps are representing well enough. The 5th T20 takes place later today (it’s Sunday morning already), and much more to come this month.

Right.
Well, it’s mostly due to the whole right-hand-drive thing.
Nissan claimed the engine configuration was so precise it could not be adopted to accommodate for the way you Yanks drive from the left side. ;)

Regardless, the most recent iteration (simply called the Nissan GT-R) can be had in the States for about $100k USD. Also a fabulous vehicle, btw.

The stomach’s all better this week so I’m playing Eat and Drink Everything with the cheeseburger and ice cream DLC. For my regular playlist I’ve been focusing on the SWTOR class stories. In LOTRO I’m stuck in one of those leveling lulls before I can continue the main quest, and I’ve barely touched SWL other than a short daily session to make some currency and upgrade gear.

Bonus: My current car is no slouch (06 Dodge Magnum), but my favorite is still the first: 68 Camaro, brought to my attention thanks to John Cusack and Better Off Dead.
