WRUP Again

So I've been playing MOTHERGUNSHIP, a first person bullet hell shooter. It's been fun. Not exceptionally deep though. No skill trees to speak of, not that many map types -room types is a more accurate description. But there are loads of guns to use against your robot enemies. And they're modular and collectible, so as you go along you can just keep stacking them up and making crazier and crazier armaments. It runs great, looks pretty darned good and is inexpensive. I recommend checking it out if you're into some fast paced, rogue lite, action.

An example of a pretty insane gun combo

What Is Everyone Else Up To?

Dr. S: Trying to cover some bs gaming event, getting stood up by my cameraman. Now hauling around equipment for two. Life is good when you're a freelance journalist

AJ: Halloween month continues… This week I’m finally playing through Batman: Arkham Knight. The batmobile sections aren’t as bad as I’d heard but they could be better. Still, it does feel satisfying that you finally get to use it. I may play some more Resident Evil Zero as well.

Greywolfe: i'm winding down some games this weekend. going to have to think about what to put in their stead. first up is book of unwritten tales, which has been a blast to revisit - so long as we don't do something the engine was never designed to do [like ddr. yes, seriously. ddr.] - then, i'm busy piling through the last little bit of shadowhand. it's been…an experience. along with that, there's some quest for glory 4, too. i'm not sure what i'm going to replace those games with. i've been thinking of playing infocom's wishbringer and and maybe also ghost of a tale, but we'll see.

Scroo: Probably some work for me this weekend. Hopefully I'll be picking up the rest of the parts I need for my PC build, which I'm really excited for. And I'll probably get some game time in the evenings. Maybe MOTHERGUNSHIP, probably some Vermintide 2.

    Hey everybody, I didn’t even realize the site was back up!

    I’ve been bouncing between Wolfenstein: The New Colussus and the Frozen Wilds DLC for Horizon Zero Dawn this weekend. A few days ago I wrapped up the main story in Witcher 3 so I’m taking a slight RPG break before I hit the two expansions. I have to agree with the masses, Witcher 3 was one of the best RPGs I’ve played. It wasn’t perfect but the story really kept me interested, especially as it started to wrap up.

    Looking forward to Tuesday, not only is the Spider-man DLC going to be out, but I have a new video card arriving. A week ago last Sunday I woke up and saw that Amazon had EVGA GTX 1070’s as a deal of the day, for $288 so I jumped on it immediately. Did I need a new card? Nope, but that was $100 cheaper than their lowest price I’d seen.

      What’s up Mr Tim?! Good to have you back. Hopefully we’ll have some new content again soon as well.

      I’ve also upgraded my system. Just built a Ryzen 2700x with 16gb of 3200 DDR4 and some M.2 in a Fractal Design R6 case. Hoping to snap up a new GPU as well soon. A far cry from old FX 8370 let me tell you. A buddy of mine recently got 1070ti and he’s thrilled with so far.

      I wish I could play Frozen Wilds. Unfortunately the expac won’t work with my copy of Horizon as it’s not a US region disk. So some day I’ll have to re-purchase a digital copy of the game and then I can check it out.
