The Queue: Localized disaster

It has been a week, y’all. Let’s just say that in order to use the only working bathroom in my house, I have to wedge an umbrella into the area above the toilet, and it sounds like a heavy rain just breaks out from time to time for no discernible reason. I haven’t slept more than two hours at a stretch since Sunday.

Anyway, here’s the Queue.

The Queue: The Devil you say

When I started grabbing questions on Friday I was pretty sure that I knew what I was going to talk about here. My Warlock was finally on the final stages of the Legion Order Hall, and I was going to push through that over the weekend. But then my favorite Mage friend got me a birthday present — Supergiant Games Hades. Folks, it’s fair to say that I haven’t been this captivated by a game in a long time.

I’ve played a few Roguelike games in my time, and Hades has blown them all out of the water. The pacing of the story and progression is so well tuned that I’ve never felt angry at dying while trying to escape from the Underworld. It just means that I’m on my way back to see Ms. Dusa and pet Cerberus. It also means another chance to run into Eurydice, who is voiced by the incomparable Ashley Barret. Supergiant has made some of my all-time favorite games, and I’m happy to say that they’ve done it again and then some with Hades. 

While I spend another hour listening to Eurydice sing, it’s time for — the Queue.

The Queue: Big honking fist weapons

Since the Shadowlands pre-patch I’ve been working on my fist weapon transmogs, farming up The Bladefist from Highmaul, Fist of the Deity from Gundrak, and the Abomination’s Knuckles from ICC. I’m annoyed that I didn’t already have the Abom Knucks, cause I used to tank ICC with them back in the day. But apparently I forgot to keep them, which is irritating because I kept literally everything else. Luckily, they dropped for me.

The new customization options mean that I’m basically spending gold to make my characters match their outfits, so I don’t think I’ll have any money in Shadowlands but regardless I do enjoy fisting. I know the horrible connotations of that, and I don’t care, I enjoy my new fist weapon playstyle just that much.

This is the Queue. I’m filling in for Liz. Let’s do this.

The Queue: Nine days!

We are only nine days away from Halloween! Have you bought a dangerous amount of candy yet? Trick or treating may be different this year because of *gestures vaguely* everything — but at least there are bite-sized chocolate bars! I’m going to say something controversial now too… I like candy corn. I think it’s tasty.

While I’m dodging the flaming pitchforks and angry mobs, I take you now to — the Queue.

The Queue: I see you

We’re all in the creepy spirit, so I had to change up the transmog to match. Rutherford is a great big scaredy cat though — he’s fine with commiting wide-scale murders, but there’s something about eyeballs that makes him have to take a sick day.

This is The Queue, where we stop eating candy corn just long enough to answer any questions you may have!

The Queue: Birthday Bear!

Hey, it’s my birthday! This is obviously the third reason why October is the best month. Honestly, it’s like the other months aren’t even trying. It’s gonna be pretty quiet for me here, nothing crazy planned. Maybe I’ll get sushi. Like a lot of sushi. Sushi makes everything better in my experience. Probably some cake too.

But before I dig into the cake, it’s time for — The Queue.

The Queue: RSTUV

I honestly didn’t even realize Mitch had named yesterday’s Queue the way he did, I was just going with an in-joke for my wife. When I tell her I have to write the Queue for tomorrow she almost always goes and, forcing me to say and the R because it makes her smile and I simply cannot refuse to make her smile, ever.

Anyway, this is the Queue. I’m loving the new customization options so, so much. I am going to run around punching everything.

The Queue: HMUFA

The third and final season of Kipo premiered this week, and it is fantastic. Like, across the board great. I binged the whole thing in one night and now I’m sad it’s over (especially because it certainly had potential for a lot more). But! I can at least recommend it to all of you in the hopes that you, too, will be moved by its awesomeness.

Anyhow, that’s my Kipo opening. Now it’s time for us to Queue.
