Bonus question: What’s your least favorite sort of candy?

Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): Pokemon Go and Pokemon Unite will both get some time, and maybe New Pokemon Snap. Monster Hunter Stories 2 needs some attention too since Capcom really added some hard content (or at least, harder than before, as my hunting partner’s yet to max out a single top-end item).

Anything that’s main ingredient is dextrose or uses a lot of [color x] [number y].

Ben Griggs (@braxwolf): I’ll hit some New World and World of Warships.

Least favorite candy is black licorice, hands down. How do people eat that stuff?

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): I’ve been pretty sick this week, so hopefully I’m better this weekend and can get in more New World time.

I don’t like coconut or a lot of nuts, so those are always an easy pass. Yeah, I’m that person who trades away all her Snickers at Halloween, what.

Carlo Lacsina (@UltraMudkipEX, YouTube, Twitch): Diablo 2: Resurrected boi. I am having so much fun with that game. I’m working towards getting to max level on my sorceress and I’m thinking of doing the Holy Grail challenge! For those not in the know, an unofficial challenge in Diablo 2 is to collect all of the unique and set items in the game and it seems like a nice project to get into!

Chris Neal (@wolfyseyes, blog): There will very likely be a lot more New World, as well as a bit of City of Heroes and probably some Actraiser Renaissance. That is one good remaster, friends.

Anything with white chocolate almost immediately gets a hard pass from me. White chocolate is, frankly, an affront to the candy world. Second place is nougat, which is the confectionary form of wall insulation, and is often used similarly: to fill empty space in a candy bar.

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): Probably going to be mostly a single-player weekend, although I do have a new project to (slowly) work on in Final Fantasy XIV that will be taking up some of my attention.

Dark chocolate is generally just too bitter for me to really enjoy it that much, so I steer clear unless it’s been paired with mint. (An exception is made here because black licorice, as we all know, is not actually candy but poisonous lies disguised as a confection.)

Sam Kash (@thesamkash): I’ll be playing some New World. I don’t know if it’s the server changes they made or simply fewer players logging in but I’ve been able to play with less wait time. I’ll also be knocking out my Halloween dailies in Guild Wars 2.

Bonus: Least favorite is definitely anything coconut or grape flavored. I love real grapes but artificial grape is the worst!

Tyler Edwards (blog): New World and D&D.

Bonus question: I’m not really a big candy-eater, so most of it, I guess? If it doesn’t have chocolate, I probably don’t care.
