Bonus question: What is the worst sound?

Ben Griggs (@braxwolf): The Elder Scrolls Online! Plus, probably some World of Warships and Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. I’m less than 10k ship experience away from the Bismarck in World of Warships, so that might become a focus.

Bonus question: the sound of your car colliding with another car.

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): I’ve got so much armor to make in Star Wars Galaxies Legends this weekend! But I also need to do more than just roll a new character in TESO and actually do some wandering.

The worst sound is bass booming from a song you can’t quite make out coming through your walls.

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): Well it sure as heck won’t be Phantasy Star Online 2, now will it?! So Final Fantasy XIV, and also I think the Mega Man Zero collection is on sale? Might grab that.

The worst sound is when an appliance you use on the regular makes an unfamiliar noise, followed by a low whine and the sound you just know means it is dying forever now.

Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): My primary mission this weekend is to tackle The Elder Scrolls Online’s Greymoor, but I don’t want to rush through that. Otherwise, I am just questing around in Fallout 76, deed farming Lord of the Rings Online, and waiting for Phantasy Star Online 2 to settle down.

Samon Kashani (@thesamkash): Still playing Starborne, but I am slowing down significantly. The game had a major bug last week that completely screwed over my alliance. I’m going to see this server through to the end but I doubt I’ll play in another one. I’m also playing through the latest Guild Wars 2 update. It’s very weird playing without any voice actors. One of those things you get so used to that you really take it for granted until it’s gone.

Annoying sound for me has to be someone biting their nails. It sets me off!

Tyler Edwards: Right now I’m back in TESO after a long absence. Not for Greymoor; I pretty much forgot that was even a thing until everyone started talking about the servers exploding. I’m just now getting to Elsweyr. I’m not sure it’s going to stick, though. On paper TESO is everything I want in an MMO, but in practice it never feels more than adequate to me. It’s quite vexing. Right now I’ve switched from my main to my warden to try to combat the blahs, but I’m not sure if that will be enough. I’d also like to roll a necromancer, but ugh… mount training…

Bonus question: Music you dislike but cannot turn off.

Pierre, patron: Going through the NG+ of The Last of Us. The game is very pleasant in NG+, as you keep the skills and weapons enhancements from your former playthrough, making the combats even more fun. I can’t get enough of the story, making the NG+ an overall very enjoyable experience. I’m having fun in Final Fantasy XI. May be it’s nostalgia but I’m really having a treat here. The quests and dialogs with NPCs in this game are well written and funny, sometimes touching, contributing to immersing the player in the game and having him deeply invested in the missions he’s given. Finally, I’m returning to Destiny; not Destiny 2, Destiny. I have been thinking about going back to this game for a while, and some friends from my D2 clan had the same idea. So, it’s a go as it solves the problem of finding trustworthy people to raid with; a lot of fun incoming, playing with them.

Bonus question: probably shrieks so high-pitched they make your teeth hurt, very painful indeed.

Every Saturday, join the Massively OP community and staff for What Are You Playing, our roundup of what MMORPGs and other games we’re hoping to play this weekend (with a bonus question or two for our amusement). Tell us what you’re up to! Go off-topic! And don’t forget to have fun!

Drew my GW2 Asura. I kinda wanna buy PoF, but i don’t have the money because of how the conversion works here ( 1 dollar is 6 reais almost, so a 30bucks xpac becomes almost 160 reais, which is STEEP ).

Thinking of doing cheap pencil commission sketches.

Anyway. Living through COVID. The Smite SPL is helping a lot keeping my head focused.

Watched a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket deliver Crew Dragon Endeavour into orbit this wekend. Who has time for video games? Okay, maybe I’ll make a little time for ESO, and (mostly) a few assorted single-player games. Be safe everybody.

The worst sound: that rising high-pitch sound that you instantly recognize as coming from the throat of one of your children as they collect enough oxygen to start crying.

I’ve been playing a lot of Evertale.

It’s got a decent offline story, which I haven’t beat yet. They also have a lot of events and stuff like that.

I surprised myself by using the auto battle system for events. It’s got a lot of grind, so being able to auto battle while I’m watching TV is nice. Auto battle makes it a game of assembling a powerful team and hoping it’s strong enough for the AI
(which often makes stupid choices) to win with it.

I even tried PVP, but I hated it. Game has a huge gatcha pay to win problem, which makes PVP pretty much impossible to win without spending a lot of money on the crystals you buy characters with. And, the characters you get are random, with different tiers, so there’s no guarantee you’d even get viable options for PVP.

If it wasn’t for the occasional free crystals and the offline story, I wouldn’t even bother with the game.

As for the worst sound, I’d say the excruciating crunch of a bone breaking, especially when it’s one of your own bones, and you know the pain is going to hit you soon.

Paul McCartney wrote that song when he was 16. And gave it to his girlfriend’s brother, Peter, to record. 1964. The Vietnam War had just begun to make an entrance in the minds of Americans, who thought it was going to be like every other war. My freshman English class wrote postcards to US soldiers already overseas. Little did we know that social upheaval and civil unrest lay ahead. Four years later, when I graduated high school, the entire landscape of our future had changed.

Playing Civ VI, getting a grip on the Maya. I always go to Civ when I’m depressed.

PSO2 is kind of absorbing most my game time right now. If I can be peeled off of that, probably some FFXIV.

Playing GW2 and ESO for mmos. I have enjoyed the new patch for GW2 but I really do miss the voice acting. Especially in a game like GW2 where there is voice work all over the place, the absence of it is really noticeable. As for ESO, while I like the new DLC, it feels really safe. I feel like it is the same formula they have been using for most of their content. At the very least I feel that this should have been an opportunity to add in another weapon, preferably some kind of magicka weapon as there is only Staff as it is right now.

Otherwise, I’m back into Borderlands 3. I’m hoping they add in another playable character. Also hoping that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order goes on sale for the PS4 sometime, would love to pick that game up.

umm…public decency statutes? Just a little SWTOR, and I had so much fun playing the little Thimbleweed Park mini game that I went back and purchased the full original game. Yes, I know it came out in 2017 but so what! I’m not a big fan of point and click, adventure game puzzle solving, but it wasn’t horrible on casual mode. Finishing that up.

Bonus question: I am torn here between the sound of a loud car stereo when the woofer has been busted out. How people can listen to that without going insane I just don’t know. The other is the proverbial chalk scratch on the board. I am certain my students get free entertainment when that happens in my class.

Since I just discovered PSO2 is out, I guess I’m giving that a go. A little bit of SWG and LoTRO, slowly leveling guys an hour at a time. Also, the Minecraft server I play on is having an in game high school graduation for several of the players who go to the same school.

Bonus: The sound of cheeto

I won’t live in a world with out fried chicken, and the most annoying sound in the world would be any time I hear a Trump speak on TV (I haven’t watched the news in years).

Disclaimer, everyone has a right to their beliefs (even if they’re wrong :D ).

Started up a new Alt in ESO, a Templar named Odin’s Righteous Spear.

“I don’t care what they say, I won’t stay in a world without:”

This is easy here… I won’t stay in a world without:
[x] The Most Annoying Sound in the World!

Anyways…! While I try to find a ten-hour version of that sound to play for everyone around me? I’ll be drowning out their horrified wails and shrieks of anger with some more Final Fantasy 14! I’m also staring down the release of Xenoblade Chronicles’s definitive edition while remembering I still need to beat XC2. Just some simple stuff, really.
