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.
It’s the end of the week… again. And it’s the Friday Queue… again. So let’s get to it.
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.
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.
Ah, to be a former Alterra employee building my own spacious underwater seabase piece by painstaking piece.
This is The Queue, where you ask us questions and we can totally answer while we go find more titanium and watch the Nintendo panel. Multitasking is a thing, it’s fine.
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.
Life, like an immense crowd of dragon whelps, can be pretty overwhelming. But like clockwork, the Queue has returned.
Anyone else feel like this week has been twice as long as normal? Thankfully, it’s almost the weekend. Almost.
Today, though, we Queue.
You can’t, because I love photo modes. Absolutely love them. Loved them in Odyssey, in Valhalla, loved watching what people did with them in Spider-Man, and I’m currently abusing the heck out of them in Cyberpunk 2077.
This is the Queue. I love photo modes. Go ahead, say their power has corrupted me. I care not.
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?
