Even though I definitely planned this, it’s cool to wind up with two end-of-the-year Queues in a row. There’s a small bit of irony here, given my first answer to last year’s EOY Queue, but hey. Also, yes, once again, I am writing this with like 30 minutes before it goes live.
So, one final time for 2021… let’s Queue this.
Man, I really love Arcane. The only way this show could be better is if everyone was a dinosaur.
The past year has been pretty rocky, but there have been some things I’ve objectively enjoyed this year. Cyberpunk 2077 was a top tier favorite game for me in 2021, loved that. Arcane was super great, loved watching it. I think Wrath of the Righteous is one of the best CRPG’s ever made and have absolutely loved playing that game. Had a lot of fun playing and running D&D and other TTRPG’s, including a fun homebrew Mass Effect game we did here on the site. And several of Diablo 3‘s Seasons have been great. Plus, all sorts of cool new dinosaur news came out this year, I discovered Your Dinosaurs Are Wrong and kept watching old favorites like Eons.
So yeah, it’s been hard, but there have been some points of light out there.
This is the Queue. It’s the last Wednesday of 2021. I am running on fumes.
Between holiday weirdness and a general creeping malaise, I literally had no idea that yesterday was Monday until after dinner. Everything in my house is both figuratively and literally a mess. It’s supposed to be a high of 70F with thunderstorms today, in what I think is probably still December. In the distance, sirens.
This is The Queue, where you ask us questions and we definitely answer them on our assigned day.
Greatfather Winter has been good to us and we’ve all gotten our presents from beneath the trees in Ironforge and Orgrimmar. I like that the Rock n Roll Racers got to pop up again, even if they’re looking like they’ll never get their moment to shine in Heroes of the Storm.
I hope that your real-life presents were excellent and that you were able to have a safe and happy holiday if you were celebrating.
While I try and get back into the mindset of working, it’s time for — The Queue.
Boy howdy, do I enjoy sesquipedalian words. If only I’d written yesterday’s Queue, I could’ve employed “preantepenultimate”! But that’s neither here nor there. Here is here, and here is…
Yes, this is purely my opinion, art and game quality are both subjective, others may prefer a different game. I know all that. I also know that I’ve now played quite a few Assassin’s Creed games, and for me, the best one hands down is Odyssey. It’s three years old and it’s still the one I play the most, by a long margin. I played and liked Valhalla — Eivor’s a cool protagonist, I have no beef with her — but for me Odyssey is absolutely my favorite of the entire series, and it’s not even close.
And since it’s nearly the end of 2021, I felt like a replay was in order. So I’m back flinging myself off cliffs, playing the new DLC for both Odyssey and Valhalla, and generally having a grand time doing it.
In a bit of an ironic twist, as we begin the kids’ holiday week off school — where the days stretch into nights, both stretching into infinity — it’s also the longest night of the year in my hemisphere. I hope The Queue stays warm tonight. It’s gonna be a long one.
This is The Queue, where you ask us questions and we answer them between sips of cocoa — or herbal tea.
Seriously, how is it already the 20th of December?! I still have to bake, and decorate, and shop, and try and find a time to watch Spider-Man, and and and and…
While I freak out for a moment about all of the things I still have to do, it’s time for — The Queue.
Winter Veil is live and we’re heading towards the end of 2021 as the holiday season — both real and imagined — zooms by. It’s wild how we’ve already gone through another year, isn’t it?
But wonderful or not, timely or not, now it’s time for the Queue.
Happy Thursday, folks! It’s holiday season and… well, right now it’s actually in the 60s and very windy so it doesn’t exactly feel like mid-December, but hey, it’s still technically that time of year.
Coincidentally, a lot of today’s questions are themed around the holidays! So let’s dive in, shall we?
Queuedolph, with your nose so bright, won’t you guide my Queue tonight (in some parts of the world)?
