Please note, the following is to be read if you are not Kyle only. If you are Kyle, do not read beyond this warning note. Only non-Kyle reading past this point!
Kyle is stupid and dumb. He thinks we are friends but we are not friends because I don’t like Kyle. His fashion sense is stupid and he smells really bad. Kyle is a dumpster man from the trash heap and he deserves to be sad all the time.
All right, guys, now that Kyle has probably read that first paragraph and thinks that we all dislike him, it’s time to get ready to discuss our intervention for the painkiller addiction that he is doubtlessly suffering from! Here’s the plan. Stephen, you’re bringing chips and dip. Michelle, you’re bringing the jackhammers. Kyle, you were already supposed to stop reading. Paul, you’re the member of this friend group none of us actually like, not Kyle, so if you could just stay home that’d be great. Pauline, you’re on What Are You Playing duty. Trish? You’re obviously on stationary bike.
Bonus question: What’s your favorite kind of Halloween monster?
Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): Pokemon Go and Animal Crossing are on the list for sure, but I’m kind of thinking about hitting up a VR title. A friend dragged me into VR Chat recently and I actually had a horrible time. Because of people. I’m sort of wondering if it’s specifically the VR player base. Maybe Star Wars Squadrons, since it’s on sale on Steam.
For the bonus, man, I’ve never really thought about it, but reading Chris’ reply… maybe sentient scarecrows, especially if they have a pumpkin for a head. Headless horseman in a close second. Something about a flaming gourd looks cool, reminds me of the season, and somehow doesn’t make me think too much about pie.
Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): It’ll be City of Heroes again for me mostly. I’m trying to play some combos I’ve never tried before. I’ve also got a chore list in Star Wars Galaxies Legends; my droid vendor is woefully understocked, and I’m getting low on pudding, so there’s a few hours of crafting ahead of me.
Ghosts. Always been my favorite imaginary undead, the more spectral the better. Bonus points for wildly cackling skeletons though.
Chris Neal (@wolfyseyes, blog): This weekend is probably gonna be mostly dinking about in new ships in Elite: Dangerous – namely more noob core mining in my Asp Explorer or dogfights in my Imperial Eagle – or perhaps a bit of monster hunting in Dauntless. I also have this rather specific desire to play Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, but we’ll see if that urge plays out.
My favorite is any monster version of a jack-o’-lantern, though special props to the one in The Secret World. Something about that kind of monster delights me during the Halloween season.
Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): Some Final Fantasy XIV, probably, but other than that I don’t know. It’s going to be a kind of busy weekend, so I might just not have a lot of time to devote to gaming.
I’ve always had a special love for animated suits of armor, for some reason. Bonus points if it has a pair of glowing points of light instead of eyes.
Sam Kash (@thesamkash): My crew and I really are enjoying Rogue Heroes. It’s still pretty buggy but no show stoppers for us. I haven’t committed to The Elder Scrolls Online yet, but I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately so there’s a high likely hood that I begin that journey soon now that it’s on Game Pass.
Favorite Halloween monster would be vampires. Sparkle vampires did put a bit of a damper on the overall vampire mood, but I still like the classics.
