The Round Up – October 3rd, 2017

Another week, another Round Up.

It’s Tuesday!  You know what that means?  It’s raid day with the Destiny 2 crew.  I’m almost 300 light level (297), so I’m hoping to hit that tonight or this week with all the loot I’ll get (hopefully).  I’m still playing lots of Marvel Heroes Omega, pretty much every night.  I’ve also started getting back into FFXIV a bit more.  I’d like to have that Lakshmi Extreme doggo before the next patch, but it’s looking highly unlikely considering I only have 7 days (you know the drop rate is horrendous when I think a week isn’t enough time to get the mount) to get it.  Wish me luck!

Let’s see what’s on my mind this week………

Playstation Plus subscribers are getting some stellar games for October!

PS4 owners will be getting some solid (heh solid) games starting today.  We’re looking at Metal Gear Solid V – The Phantom Pain (Tactical Espionage Action) & The Amnesia Collection (Scary As Fuck).  I have yet to play Metal Gear, but I hear there’s an insane amount of gameplay packed in, so I’m sure it’ll keep me busy for a few weeks (maybe months).  This is a pretty amazing line up considering if you wanted, you could just throw $10 down for the month and pick these up.  Well played Playstation, well played indeed.

Black Bolt coming to Marvel Heroes Omega this Thursday

We already got the awesome Age of Apocalypse event pack last week, and now we’re getting Black Bolt this week?  My heart could burst with joy.  Will you be playing as the mute hero?  He’s always fascinated me as a character, and I’m stoked to level him up whilst screaming at people with his high pitched voice.  I have still yet to watch the new Inhumans show though.  Is it really as terrible as people say?  I’m too scared to watch it.

Blade Runner 2049 releases this week to rave reviews

This sequel has been getting fantastic reviews.  This was on my radar, but now it’s a must see.  I’m going to have to watch the original again though because I honestly don’t remember much.  It’s been years since I checked it out.  The last movie I watched recently was Lego Ninjago, so I feel like I’m in need of some smart, sci-fi action to kickstart my brain into properly functioning again.  Will you be checking it out this weekend?

Blade Runner 2049 opens in theaters this Friday.

Destiny 2 Faction Rally winner revealed!

MY FACTION WON (Dead Orbit)!  

But I already told you this was going to happen last week when the event started…… so it shouldn’t come as that big of a surprise to you…….. you’re upset?

This is awkward.

Final Fantasy XIV – Patch 4.1 get a release date

October 10th!  We’ll be diving into a bunch of new content.  New stuff includes Shinryu Extreme, Ivalice (FFXII, FF Tactics) raid,  a new dungeon, main scenario quests, beast tribe (Kojin), and my favorite of all – HILDIBRAND!  He’s making his return and I could not be more excited.  His questline always has me laughing.  I’m also really looking forward to grinding out that new gear (not).  So far, I’ve been very impressed with Stormblood’s storyline.  I’m eager to continue on to see how the fall out from Zenos tyranny will effect the rest of the story.  He was a great villain, but I’m hoping we’re going to get someone even worse.  How about one of those catfish guys.  They could make an interesting villain.  No?

Lastly, on a much more serious note, I wanted to offer my condolences to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting.  I wasn’t sure how to fit it into The Round Up, since I typically try to have fun with this, but it’s something that has absolutely been on my mind, and everyone else’s.  I can’t possibly begin to imagine what everyone involved is going through, but I hope one day these tragedies can just come to an end.  After watching the video footage of everyone just trying to find cover from the gunfire, I wanted to hold my kids tight forever.  It’s sad when you can’t even go to a concert (or anywhere for that matter), without fearing for your safety.  It’s a scary world we live in.  It’s times like this that make me want to dive into one of my favorite game worlds and just stay there.  Something needs to be done to put an end to things like this happening again and again and again.  Give your loved ones extra hugs and kisses tonight. 

That’s it for The Round Up, until next time! – NVJ
