New Year WRUP

Geez you guys, Dr. S. is gone again it seems. It's like he got his PhD in 'Not Wrupping' amirite.... I'm real funny. And handsome.

Well anyway, hopefully everyone had a good holiday. Mine was good too, thanks for asking. I got to see family and friends and eat way too much food and food related products while imbibing fair quantities of beer and wine and oh, I got to play a bunch of games. I'll tell you about that below.

In a matter of hours we can give a one finger salute to the uhh... year... that was 2017 and as with last week we here at the ol' Twinstiq hope you all have a great New Year celebration. Be safe and to quote Rufus from "Bill and Ted's" -Be excellent to each other.

I think I'll probably just be spending mine playing games because I'm not really feeling the crowds this year. So with that in mind, what's everyone playing?


Greywolfe: i'm playing: let's reinstall the computer. [but also children of the zodiarcs, because i'm scratching my ccg itch. it's not /really/ a ccg, but it is kind of fun.]

Andrew: Fast RMX and Mass Effect 2

Yoda: More Elite for me!!

Truelegendkiller: So much. I'm still making my way though The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. God that game is beautiful and amazing. Still playing Mario Odyssey. I picked up Mario Cart 8 Deluxe and Liz and I have been playing that. She also got me Skyrim Special Edition on Xbox so I've been playing that for fun and messing with what little mods they have. Oh and Cuphead... You know, when it doesn't make me wanna throw a controller out a freaking window!

Scroo: Yeah I've also got a lot on my plate. Christmas was a pretty big game influx with the winter sale going on. Of course I'm still loving the slow paced satisfaction of MudRunner but on top of that I've recently installed Shadow of War. I dislike saying it but, it's been very enjoyable. The nemesis system is improved a lot and the game itself is much more challenging than Shadow of Mordor was. I refuse to support the DLC and lootbox nonsense it wants to shove in my face though. Sniper Elite 4 is also quite good, big maps and lots of stealth game play. But again, loads of DLC that I won't be buying. New PC games in my list include: Steep, Superhot, Elite Dangerous and the original Lost Planet. And to add to the pile this new PS4 has Bloodborne, Horizon Zero Dawn and it's own copy of Shadow of War. Horizon has been rather awesome actually. A bit of the best of Skyrim, Tomb Raider and Far Cry in a world nearly as large and potentially deep as The Witcher 3. You'll never convince me that it wouldn't be better on PC though. I'm enjoying a veritable game feast and if New Years turns out to be quiet I'll be happy just having a few beers and playing them all night long. (On a side Note, hopefully all this new game play means we can get some more actual writing done and not just WRUPS again)
