WRUP: There is a hidden message about a chocolate cake in this week’s WRUP edition

This should be easier.

Round 1: Floorb vs. Mongoose, Will Examplename vs. Brick Moneyshield, Metroid Glort vs. A 1967 Printing of The Lord of the Rings, Harble vs. Darble
Results: Brick Moneyshield is a gigantic boor and should be force-fed garbage, he was disqualified. Metroid Glort attempted to use the Ice Beam while J. R. R. Tolkien astrally projected and kicked it in the face. Harble and Darble merged into one like merging with V’Ger. Floorb.

Round 2: The People vs. Larry Flint, Floorb vs. Harbledarble, Haberdasher, A Chocolate Cake
Results: Enya got the Time Stone and rewrote the remainder of What Are You Playing in one of her made-up space languages so to be honest I’m not altogether sure.

In summary, I don’t sleep well. What are you playing this weekend?

Bonus question: What’s a movie you didn’t like much when you first watched it that you’ve liked more on re-watching?

Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): Probably Pokemon Go and Splatoon 3 here, with dash of Orna if I can muster up the energy.

Honestly, the original Star Wars didn’t do much for me as a kid; I felt like they talked too much and the lightsaber fights were boring. A lot of Luke’s whining and the political stuff just went over my head as a kid, but made a deeper impact as I got older and saw it additional times.

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): I’m not going to have much time to play anything this weekend, realistically, and none the weekend after, so I’m in a bit of a holding pattern until we’re back from our trip. But I might duck into City of Heroes or Lord of the Rings Online anyhow.

Can’t think of one I liked much more later, but I sure do have a long list of the opposite.

Carlo Lacsina (@UltraMudkipEX, YouTube, Twitch): No MMOs for me this weekend, but Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth and a 12-pack of Guiness is in my future!

A movie I didn’t initially like was the Warcraft Movie, but if the chance pops up, I’ll watch it these days.

Chris Neal (@wolfyseyes, blog): My family and I all got the same random urge to return to Star Wars: The Old Republic, so I’ll be experiencing a new-to-me class story in full and maybe even get to see more than the one dungeon now as a result. Otherwise I’ll be continuing to make my way closer to the multiplayer hub in Nightingale and interspersing it all with more Helldivers 2.

Bonus: Titan A.E. is a film that springs to mind. Now I should say that I enjoyed the film enough the first time I watched it, mostly because it was a new Don Bluth animated film, which I haven’t seen in literal years to that point (and Bluth animation is a childhood staple for someone my age), but I also did find the story to be pretty routine and the lack of blend between hand-drawn animation and CG animation to be jarring. In retrospect and with later viewings, the animation styles do still clash but also kind of give it all this unique feel I appreciate, and the story’s cheese is comforting in these otherwise droll and depressing times.

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): Some review games and a bit of Final Fantasy XIV will fill out my weekend well enough. Also I’ll probably work on my newest CoH character here and there.

The first time I saw Napoleon Dynamite, I honestly found it pretty boring and didn’t much care for it. Like, I recognized where the jokes were supposed to go, but they just weren’t landing. On subsequent viewings my esteem for it ballooned significantly, though; I feel like maybe my first viewing went through the lens of being annoyed at a perceived element it wasn’t really putting forth in the first place. Now I’ll happily hold it up as an expert example of the form.

Tyler Edwards (blog): I’ll be leveling alts in World of Warcraft and progressing my season pass in New World.
