WRUP-ish

Well here I am again. Late to the party. Well... more like gathering really. Maybe not even that, perhaps light social is a better term. Or maybe it's just a thinly disguised attempt at trying to think of something to write in this WRUP but it's not happening because not much is going on that I want to talk about. You don't know.

Oh hey! I did just read something about Cyberpunk 2077 having a release in 2019. So that's cool if it doesn't turn out to be completely false. Which it might because CDPRed have already said it would likely be 2020. Ehhh -grains of salt and all that. Read more

No New Content WRUP

Yeah we haven't written anything new since before last week. Hopefully Cody will write something about Tomb Raider, I know he's got that. I do think Greywolfe has something coming soon. I have nothing because I've stopped all spending on games in order to begin purchasing my new PC parts.

I just got my case yesterday. Fractal Design, Define R6 in gunmetal. Love it. Now I'm impatient and I really want to buy the rest of the list. But I have to be responsible and "pay bills" and "buy food" and other things less important than building a new PC, says my brain. But I'm keeping an eye on sales and it looks like I'll be able to save myself even more money as I go along. So I'm happy. Read more

Now to the WRUP

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

WRUP

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

WRUP Rabbit

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" 

Kick Drums and Red 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." 

Sunday WRUP

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.
