Well I've been putting together a parts list for a new PC build and it seems like I can do it for a lot less than I was figuring I'd have to spend. I won't need a new GPU right away because I won't be getting a new monitor right away for higher resolution. So that will save some money up front. I've also got the hard drives I need already so I don't need to buy those. But I'm going to need a new case, CPU, motherboard, PSU, and RAM. After that, I can work toward a GPU and monitor separately to make the whole project more affordable. Read more
Look, nobody ever said we were professionals or that we had deadlines and that we would be on time with everything here. We have a reputation to uphold after all. So a late WRUP or two is to be expected. Get off my back. Read more
Last night was a birthday party. Hopefully someone with their head screwed on straight will write a better WRUP and replace this one...
I might be getting Camaro to rebuild so that's potentially exciting. Gonna go look at it today.
What are you guys playing this weekend? Read more
Did you miss us? Well, who could blame you? Read more
Another week under all our belts and a whole mess of bull shit in the world. Throw on your headphones, plug into some music, and let's just play video games until we forget what weekend it is :)
What games are we playing for Memorial Day weekend?
Greywolfe: those daily things. plus, since the lp for banjo kazooie moved, i got to do some of that, too [i'm playing alongside someone who's let's plays i like a ton. when she gets something done in her game, i do that thing, too.] - i also downloaded moonhunters and am looking into that a little, plus, since i have the dumb card game itch - which is all i've been doing for the past two months - i just decided i'll boot up a REAL game that doesn't have dailies or any nonsense in it, so i'm replaying magic: the gathering, by microprose from 1997. it's an infinitely more fun game than "can i beat the current, dumb metadeck on the ladder."
Andrew: More ACA Neo-Geo games. There will surely be some Forza 6 and Dragon Ball FighterZ in there as well.
Yoda0vgs: Finished my Death March run of the Witcher so I'm off to play some Hellblade, Styx, And Dota
Scroo: More Vermintide 2 and plenty more Battletech. I've yet to finish God of War so I should do that as well if the time allows this weekend. I've been working a lot lately so we'll see how much gaming I actually get in
Trulegendkiller: Been catching a case of the deer hunting mushrooms that Cody made me sell to the Digimon that no one can remember the name but we're all pretty sure it was 10% luck, 20% skill, 15% concentrated power of will, 5% pleasure, 50% pain with a chance of cloudy skies just after it rains.
Dr. Strangethumb: "won't be around this weekend for the WRUP"
"Some people find it with devotion, some with gold and with bourbon
Some like praying to the blue sky, some like putting on a disguise,
But I prefer kick drums and red wine."
Nice and chill Saturday so far for me, but the real question as always is:
What games are we playing this weekend?
Greywolfe: So, i'm still doing daily quests in bad games. more magic: arena, more magic: duels and more eternal. although, i've more-or-less been terrible about duels and eternal. so, who knows? :P - i played a bit of tome [tales of ma'jeyal] and had my guy die in one of the starter quests, so i guess the lesson i'm supposed to learn is "don't go into crypts unless you're over-leveled." i'm also about midway through banjo kazooie, which continues to be a wonderful game [wonky camera and awkward swimming sections notwithstanding.] - i'm so glad i tried it out a few years ago.
Andrew: Still rocking the Neo-Geo titles. Maybe some Dead or Alive 5 as well.
Yoda0vgs: On the last Mission (after not doing most side quests in the full game) of Blood and Wine, then finally some Hellblade and Styx!
Scroo: I've been doing some tying of loose ends in God of War before I finish the story and man, that's been such a good title. Surprisingly complex. Still enjoying Vermintide 2, especially since loads and loads of fixes and tweaks in the last patch have improved performance and balance. And I plan on fitting in as much Battletech as possible
Trulegendkiller: Being a fucking pimp (according to cody)
Dr. Strangethumb: "Not at home and forgot to do the wrup."
First things first.
Stories: The Path of Destinies is currently free on Steam.
Oh, and The Flame in the Flood is free on Humble. (Although I didn't like that one as much as Stories and only for another hour at the time of writing)
So let's get this done quick before the deal is over.
What is everyone playing over the weekend? Read more
Because life is strange.
Anyway, what is/has everyone (been) playing over the weekend?
Thomas: Played some Fable Fortune (the CCG). Shame the playerbase is almost gone at this point. Really solid CCG otherwise.
Scroo: Hopefully more Vermintide and God of War. I'm also planning on picking up Battletech cos I'm a sucker for XCom style mech combat. And it'll be late by the time this gets posted but, Friday I'm doing some chalk art for the local Butterfly Festival.
Cody: Still going through Blood and Wine. Hoping to start Styx this weekend if I got some free time
Tru: Well playing more God if War (hoping for a new game plus soon) but I just picked up the expansion for Horizon Zero Dawn so I'm going to start a new game plus of that then move onto the expansion
AJ: Star Wars: Episode I Racer and more ACA Neo-Geo stuff.
Greywolfe: daily quest things. but also OH MY GOD A REAL GAME. yeah. i've beat it before. but eh. i don't care. i'm replaying banjo kazooie.
What games are we playing this weekend?
Greywolfe: what is wrup? baby don't hurt me. don't hurt me. no more. and all that. i am basically daily questing my life away: magic: arena [which has had an economy update. it's weird] and magic duels [which lives to fight another week] and eternal. i was playing torment: tides of numenera, but i've been awful and haven't touched that in a week or so. i know. i'm not playing real games. i understand. lol.
Andrew: Arcade Archives, all weekend long! I've just discovered that the revamped AA (Neo Geo) titles, as well as the three available Nintendo ones (Mario Bros, Punch-Out, and Vs Super Mario Bros), are every bit as fun as any of the old-school titles available on 3DS or Wii U. Also, while many of the Virtual Console games for some reason look unappealingly darker and less colorful than their original versions, the AA ones are crisp, beautiful, and picture-perfect. In addition, they are the arcade versions, meaning that they are graphically superior anyway and, in some cases, even more fun to play. Now I kind of want to see all the Virtual Console games to come to the Switch via Arcade Archives. One can always hope, right?
Yoda0vgs: Gnna try to crank out a lot of Blood and Wine then move on to Styx
Scroo: The usual for me mostly: Vermintide 2 and God of War. That is if I can take a take a day off to play games. I've been so slammed with work it's hard to have time to play anything for any measurable time.
Trulegendkiller: Hating on wool carpets. Why make something so soft anyway?
Dr. Strangethumb: Wondering why Tru is so down on wool carpets. They feel good under the feet of a god...
God of War, guys. God of War.
