Rey: Sometimes she thinks about the fact that there are cats out in the galaxy whose owners never once pick them up and say, “Hello, my little fur monster.” This makes her cry for half an hour.
Han Solo: One time somebody called him “Han Solame,” and whenever he thinks about it, he needs to hide in a storage container and cry it out.
Chewbacca: He knows that Han is crying about that insult, but he won’t open up to Chewie. Also, mange.
Mace Windu: They were out of Ithorian sprinkles at the ice cream place.
Anakin Skywalker: dead secret wife, lol
Luke Skywalker: He is also crying about “Han Solame” because that was just mean. But he’s not hiding; he’s crying in full view of everyone. He’s literally just sitting there crying and blowing his nose. It’s actually kind of awkward to watch him. You want to say something about it, but what do you say to that?
Yoda: Answered What Are You Playing, he did. Live it down, he can’t.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Mange.
Bonus question: How long do you think an ideal vacation lasts?
Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): Pokemon Go and Unite will get love because I love Halloween-themed stuff. I want to say Monster Hunter Stories 2 will get love as well, or maybe prep work in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to pull it off.
I think it really depends. I can’t imagine traveling to, say, Japan for less than a week, two weeks being good if you can afford it. But just to take some time off locally or in your own country? About a week.
Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): I think it seems wise to hit pause on New World for a bit while they sort out their stuff, but eventually I’d like to transfer and get back to our original server. It’s gonna be a busy weekend for me, so if I get gametime, it’ll probably be SWG Legends, though I’ve also been tempted by Guild Wars 2 and City of Heroes lately.
What’s a vacation? I think I tend to prefer more shorter vacations – I’m pretty tired after about four days of traveling. I’d rather have two four-day trips than one eight-day trip. But realistically, we didn’t go on many before COVID that weren’t just holiday trips to see family, and we go on none now, so it all seems very foggy and distant. Someday we’ll get back to weekend roadtripping all the time…
Carlo Lacsina (@UltraMudkipEX, YouTube, Twitch): It’s raining for once in the California Bay Area, and it feels like a good time to play some Elyon and Diablo II and III! Hopefully the week is not too busy so I can just have some time to play the games and chill for a bit. Other than that, maybe squeeze in some BDO and Swords of Legends. The kid is getting a little bigger, and I might have time to play the games!
As for a vacation, three weeks. I like staying home for my vacation, but my wife likes to travel. She can have the first two weeks when we travel, but I want the last week to stay home and play video games all week
Chris Neal (@wolfyseyes, blog): I’m thinking I’ll fire up some Guild Wars 2 this weekend, particularly since I’ve both been swept up by a bit of FOMO/expack hype and given some good advice by a couple of MOP staffers. I also want to pull together the Porg Squadron for some space-based shenanigans in Elite Dangerous, and I might also bop around in Trove for a little bit.
Two weeks at minimum. Ideally, anyway. Having that much time off gives enough time to uncoil and fully appreciate that you’re not forced to work so much, in my opinion.
Sam Kash (@thesamkash): Nothing has changed for me lately. I’m still smashing through New World and gobbling up my Guild Wars 2 Halloween events. Although I admit New World is really putting a damper on my GW2 game time. I’ve actually missed some dailies!
Bonus: Ideally? Vacation is never ending! Vacation of the mind! Realistically though, I’d say a work week. Saturday through the next Sunday. 8 days!
Patron Pierre: After a few very busy weeks (again…), I will probably have some time to play this weekend. As some friends have built a clan in New World, and I watched a few streams that confirmed this trending MMO seemed really enjoyable, I have joined the clan. Even if I progress slower than the others, I like spending time exploring and grinding in this very classical but well polished MMO. I focus on PvE content for now but will probably try the PvP content in the near future. I’m still playing Final Fantasy XIV too, but I put it somehow on the backburner as I don’t have enough time for two MMOs. I also decided to go back to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey as I never completely finished it and really enjoy this recreation of ancient Greece. Last but not least, with my best friend, we have started a coop campaign in Far Cry 6. ¡Viva la revolución! (yes I speak Spanish too lol).
Bonus question: An ideal vacation should last at least two weeks (yes we can do that as we have a lot of vacations in France) as I think it’s the minimum duration to detach yourself from work and feel totally free and relax.
And you MOP readers, do you have a lot of gaming on your plate as I do this weekend? Let us know in the comments and enjoy your weekend.
