The Queue: Happy (belated) Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s day to all of the dads out there. I hope you had a good day full of fun times, and just the absolute daddest of dad jokes. I spent the day hanging with my family — eating and making merry. Luckily, none of us were turned into piles of ash by evil Warlocks. It was a good day. Also, it was really long apparently, who knew?

Now that it’s over, it’s time for — The Queue.


The Queue: WoW needs pistols and hand crossbows

I don’t really know why, but for whatever reason my preferred Cyberpunk 2077 build is focused around pistols and quickhacks. It’s similar to this build that focused on blades and quickhacks, but trading out blades for pistols, and it’s heavily reliant on the Comrade’s Hammer one-shot pistol that does ridiculous amounts of damage because it fires one big grenade instead of four normal bullets. It’s slow to reload, but that’s fine, because I use the reload time to use some quickhacks like Contagion or Breach Protocol to damage and debuff my opponents.

Anyway, I wish World of Warcraft would introduce pistols and let Hunters dual-wield them.


The Queue: I like this screenshot

I think it’s a good transmog set and it’s a good place and staging. I enjoy it.

Yes, I can too enjoy things. I enjoyed all those sick exclusives for the Xbox at E3 this year! I’m looking forward to the new Arkane Studios game, Redfall, just because it’s vampires instead of zombies. In general I’m looking forward to seeing what Obsidian and Bethesda get up to as Xbox studios.


The Queue: Take Control

I just beat Control. Not only did I beat Control, but I got the platinum trophy for doing all of the achievements in it, then I beat both of the expansion packs and did all of their achievements too.

Have you ever felt like a game was written directly for you? Because that’s what Control felt like to me. It checked so many of my boxes that I was hooked from the first minute.

You play as a woman named Jesse Faden, led by the entity in her head to the mysterious Federal Bureau of Control — the government agency in charge of keeping the Weird™ stuff under wraps. From there you explore a sprawling interdimensional office building full of secrets and artifacts with wild powers. What powers you ask? I dunno how ’bout the power of flight? That do anything for ya? That’s levitation, holmes.

I’ve heard it described best as what would happen if the Ghostbusters were in charge of the FBI. Which pretty much nails it. You can even get it for free this week on the Epic Game Store if you wanted to check it out. I wholeheartedly recommend it!

While I take a break from ripping fire extinguishers off of the wall with my mind and launching them at transdimensional entities possessing office workers, it’s time for — The Queue.


The Queue: Now, where was I?

With the summer comes a constant state of interruptions. Between requests for snacks (which I’d intentionally put in a reachable place in the pantry) and complaints of being bored, I’m bored, I’m so booooored, even though I planned super cool activities like exploding soap and ice cream in a bag, I can’t really sit down and just write something like The Queue until everyone is in bed — and of course, one kid wants to stay up past her bed time, and the other is still in the habit of needing me at 3 am, so focusing on anything is

Sorry, I needed to get a kid a bowl of cereal. What were we talking about?

Oh, right, this is The Queue, where you ask us questions and we

Wait, where was I? And where’s my bear?
