WRUP: You literally said cheese though edition

Ham ham ham ham ham.

You did. You literally said cheese. I asked you what you wanted for your birthday and you said “cheese.” I don’t care if it was a joke. You literally said cheese. I got you cheese. I got you so much cheese. There is an entire truck outside, and it is stuffed with cheeses. Yes, it’s a pickup truck, not like a tractor trailer. I’m not rich. I just knew you wanted cheese and I wanted to get you cheese. I was paying attention! You said cheese! You literally said cheese, though!

Dramatic pause.

Has this ever happened to you? Your well-meaning friend got you far too much cheese, more than anyone could want, and then tries to defend the action by pointing out that you literally said cheese? Here at the Fordwell Cheese Institute, it’s situations like this that we either exacerbate or prevent, one or the other. We literally follow you around and make sure you never literally say cheese under any circumstances, even if you’re asked what kind of pizza you want or if you want cheese on your burger. Contact us now in the comments of this What Are You Playing. And don’t worry – we accept payments in cheese.

Bonus question: What’s the thing you remember being most scared of as a child?

‚ÄčAndrew Ross (@dengarsw): Doing my usual games for exercise, but I wanna hit the new Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion hard. Have had a lot of real life issues come up but I’ve been enjoying my time a bit more than I expected, even though my old hunting partners are MIA.

I had different phases, so I’ll share a slightly humorous one: as a kid, the light in my room looked like the round part of the Starship Enterprise. Yes, I knew what that was at three, even though neither of my parents were sci-fi fans. The problem was that, when the lights went out, I thought it talked. I would scream, and my dad had no idea what I was talking about. My mom would turn the light on, and I’d be fine, but my dad would sneak in and turn it off, and then I’d wake up screaming. Maybe this is subconsciously why I can only enjoy so much Star Trek…

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Star Wars Galaxies Legends likely. Been doing some cooking and vendor restocking this week. But I’ve also been tempted by Trove again, and maybe City of Heroes, so we’ll see. I may just wind up doing nothing as it’s my son’s birthday and we’re building my husband a proper workshop in our dank-ass basement finally.

The movie Poltergeist absolutely terrorized me.

Chris Neal (@wolfyseyes, blog): I’m primarily going to keep on leveling up my new Guild Wars 2 Elementalist this weekend as I slowly grown into a place of comfort with the class. Other plans include more Red Mage leveling in Final Fantasy XIV and helping some friends out with early hunts in Monster Hunter Rise.

The ritual scene from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom had me shrieking and running away in terror as a kid. To this day it’s still uncomfortable for me to watch.

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): Got a game to review and my usual FFXIV stuff to do this weekend; it’s been a really rough time for me lately, so honestly I’m trying to make this weekend very refreshing, uplifting, and pleasant for myself as much as I am able. That’s my goal.

I had a recurring nightmare as a child that there was a wall in the hallway of the first home I remember living in that would slide open. Inside there were several glass exhibits, like in a zoo, with all sorts of animals that were supposed to be in there… but the exhibits were always empty, and as I crept inside I realized that there was a lion that had gotten loose and eaten all of them. Then I could hear him and I had to find a place to hide, but there wasn’t anywhere to hide. I thought that if I could just get back to my bed, I’d be safe, but the lion was between me and the place where the wall had slid open and I couldn’t creep past…
