The Queue: Thursday!

Oh hey, it’s Thursday! This also keeps happening — much like Mondays — but for some reason, I feel much better about it. You might’ve noticed too that I’m not Mitch. I know, I know — I was as surprised as you are to find this out. I’m pretty sure that I can do a pretty convincing Mitch impression though: Xal’atath! Void stuff! More Void Stuff! Tentacles?

The Queue: Happy Labor day!

Today’s a holiday for a bunch of people! If you’re one of those people — congratulations! I hope you can enjoy a well-deserved day off. Maybe find a nice secluded beach with comfy chairs and blended rum drinks with tiny umbrellas. If it’s not a holiday for you, forget everything I just said except for the drinks with tiny umbrellas, it’s never a bad time for one of those.

While I look for the perfect island to set up camp on, it’s time for — The Queue.

The Queue: Finally, N’zoth

It’s taken my guild a while, but we’ve finally reached Mythic N’zoth. Now we’ve got a mad dash of trying to squeeze in as many pulls as possible to try and get him before the launch of Shadowlands. Time is definitely not on our side though. Most groups seem to take anywhere from 200 to 300 pulls to get the rhythm of the fight down, and I don’t know if we have that many raid nights left. Plus those giant tentacles really hurt!

While I recover from the thrashing I received, I take you now to — The Queue.

The Queue: Crossing things off

Over the weekend I finally went and tackled the achievements I was missing from my Glory of the Argus Raider. Turns out that they weren’t that hard with our gear now. I had more trouble making it past Imonar the Soulhunter’s extremely long Sleep Canister ability than most of the bits for the achievements themselves. He likes to reapply it like a jerk before the first one has even fallen off! Well, aside from Aggramar’s — his achievement took a few tries.

I’m glad that my friend convinced me to come along because now I have that beautiful shadowy demon dog. It did make me think though. We run around collecting these demonic and otherworldly mounts all the time, what if that’s secretly part of the Old God’s plan? Soon they’ll have an army of Void beasts just waiting to drop unsuspecting riders to their doom.

But enough about what the dog may or may not be plotting. It’s time for — the Queue.



The Queue: Robo-monkey

We played Shadowrun again over the weekend, and once again my favorite part was my robo-monkey companion Bowie. So much so that I went and bought this Rebuilt Gorilla Bot in Warcraft and named it after him. He’s the best. In fact, I can’t think of a single game that wouldn’t be improved in some manner with the inclusion of robotic monkey companions. Need someone to watch your back in Fallout? Robo-monkey. Need help driving through the night to get that shipment of dynamite to Iowa in American Truck Simulator? Get a robo-monkey. What about gathering all of your crops in Stardew Valley — oh you better believe a robo-monkey would come in handy there. Especially if you planted robo-bananas.

While I think of examples of games that need more mechanized monkeys, it’s time for — The Queue.
