All right, people, it’s time to keep your eyes open for doppelgangers. In this article, we’re going to let you know about the secret techniques to ensure that you are not taken by surprise by doppelganger intruders. First, however, we have to ensure that you’re not a doppelganger.
You might think that you’re not a doppelganger, but that’s just what a doppelganger would think. And if you say that you’re not a doppelganger, that’s exactly what a doppelganger would want you to say except it would actually want you to say you were a doppelganger as part of a double fake-out only to prove that you are a doppelganger.
So let’s start the test. Question one: Answer this What Are You Playing with what the human you’re doppelganging would be doing if not for being replaced by a doppelganger. Then, report to doppelganger prison. We will win our war against the doppelgangers by smashing mirrors, or as I call them, “doppelganger windows.”
Bonus question: Where in your home do you tend to eat dinner?
Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): I’ll probably do some chores in Star Wars Galaxies Legends this weekend, but then I want to dip into something else. City of Heroes has been calling to me, and honestly I keep thinking about the couple of hours I spent in Guild Wars last weekend and really missing it, so maybe I’ll head there. Having a very very 2003-2005 moment in my house.
We live in a duplex that doesn’t have a dining room, just a kitchen bar that doesn’t have space for all of us at the same time, so we kinda eat all over the main floor (it’s all one big room), usually with the kids at the table to minimize messes. Not very traditional, but I don’t mind.
Chris Neal (@wolfyseyes, blog): Alpha 3.9 of Star Citizen and the new Hunt Pass of Dauntless call me forth, and I will answer. There’s also some Final Fantasy XIV stuff to be done, but that will mostly go back burner this weekend methinks.
We don’t have a dining area in this little hole of an apartment we have, so dinner is take at my computer desk. Which is fine, really. If we did have space for a dining area I’d probably still be doing the same thing.
Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): I’ve managed to bring myself to do a little reputation farming in World of Warcraft. As a treat. Otherwise, it’s FFXIV and games to review. Also I still need to finish Final Fantasy VII Remake, huh?
My wife and I at one point had a rule about eating dinner at the dining room table. At this point it’s about 33% at the table, 33% at our desks, 33% in the den.
Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): Fallout 76 and Lord of the Rings Online’s recent updates are playing tug-o-war with my interest, but I’m not complaining! I’m trying to hit level 20 in Fallout 76 to start in on the factional quests, while I’m about done with the zone quests of LOTRO’s latest region.
We usually eat at the dining room table or standing in the kitchen.
Samon Kashani (@thesamkash): Starborne – for it is everything. Alongside that, I still need to play Guild Wars 2 SAB. But I can’t quite pull myself away from Valorant. I must hate myself because I am terrible at it – constantly yelling – but still logging in. And I really want to play Crowfall too! Too many games, too little time!
Bonus: I eat at the table. Except for breakfast, which I now eat at my computer because I need to get my production and ships sent out for Starborne.
Tyler Edwards: Same as last week. More We Happy Few, possibly with a side of Reign of Terror. WHF is a very big game; I’ll be at this a while.
Bonus question: At my computer desk. I live in a small bachelor apartment (starving writer, yo), and that’s pretty much my only option.
Pierre, patron: Another very busy week at work, with little time for gaming. So, my WRUP contribution will look like last week’s very closely: Final Fantasy VII Remake and The Last of Us are still my games of choice this weekend. As I mentioned last week and as expected, I’ve given up on The Elder Scrolls Online for the moment, but after watching a promotional stream I’ve had a World of Tanks relapse after many months of sobriety. Yes, this game is a hard drug; it’s not really good at all in my opinion, but I can’t avoid coming back periodically. It doesn’t last for long, so stay tuned to know if I’ll still be playing next week.
Bonus question: Depends on if I’m in a hurry or if I have time. For a fast lunch or breakfast, I eat in my kitchen. But for dinner or when I can take my time, I eat in my living room, very often watching a TV show episode; 40-45 minutes is just the proper duration to go with a meal.
And you MOP readers, what’s up for the weekend? I’m wondering…
