The only gaming thing I know happened this is BlizzCon, mostly because my parents actually take time off work to watch it. Because my parents are, somehow, bigger gamers than I am.
You’ll Be Saying ‘Thanks For The Memories’
Because a new build challenge has started! It’s about being thankful n’ junk! Want more of a description than that? Too bad, because the thread I made for it is super barebones! Kidding! Probably.
Over Just Watching?
A couple of initiative takers have started work on unofficial weekly schedules for Overwatch, so that players in our community can group up outside of official Overwatch shows! One thread, started by @cheesey126, is focused on PC play and can be found here, and the second thread, started by @infinitysorcerer625, is focused on PS4 play and can be found here! The PS4 schedule is currently TURBO only, as meeting up on PS4 is a slightly more difficult prospect involving more friend wrangling.
If you’re interested, make sure to post in the respective threads! These schedules don’t have the benefit of a game like TF2, where we have an official server they can use and the visibility that comes with that. So it’s up to you guys to help get these things started!
November 6th to 18th-ish – Thanksgiving Build Challenge!
November 19th-ish – Thanksgiving Challenge Show!
Every Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday! – Official TURBO TF2 Schedule!
Every Thursday and Saturday! – Unofficial PS4 Overwatch Schedule! (TURBOs Only)
TBD – Unofficial PC Overwatch Schedule!
DeeKay: No problem, if you need anything else, throw me from a cliff, drown me, I’m here
Upon realizing Discord is psychic:
MissBlow: HOW the FUCK does it know I’m playing Minecraft?!
aughts, unprofessional: magic
MissBlow: I hate magic.
aughts, unprofessional: but not a kind of magic, right
aughts, unprofessional: can’t get on freddie mercury’s bad side, he’s a pinball wizard
aughts, unprofessional: wait
MissBlow: I was JUST listening to a ton of Queen!
MissBlow: Was that magic too? That you knew I was listening to Queen.
MissBlow: You guys are freakin’ me out! :O
First up, a cooking series that focuses more on the fundamentals and history of a dish than its recipe, all couched in an 8-bit gaming aesthetic, and this week: chili con carne. Then, well… well. And finally, super duper cute Becky.
Time for the next installment of Adventure AWESOME! Last week’s results were:
1. Camp out for the night – 0
2. Get back on the trail – 2
Meaning the winner was ‘On the road again.’. Enjoy this week’s installment!
The rest of the hike is made in a mostly annoyed silence: Caligula pouting, Santa sneering, and Sherlock in blissful thought. Whatever comes of Santa’s mistrust and Caligula’s mercurial nature, Sherlock’s confident that he’s on top of things. He’s not about to be caught off guard again.
While Santa and the Ghost of Caligula argue over the definition of ‘pretty close,’ they were only two days away when they stopped at the supermarket. A meteorite roughly a mile and a half wide and two miles long sits in a crater far too small for the rock to have fallen here. Thick, metal pipes exit the meteorite all around its perimeter and enter the dirt. Caligula floats over to a particularly large pipe and points at a hatch on its side with a number pad next to it.
“For maintenance,” he says. “Very secure, only way to sneak in.” Then he hmph’s.
“I don’t suppose you know the message for that panel?” asks Santa.
“We can’t all be magic,” says the ghost, crossing his arms.
Santa takes some magical powder from his bag and blows it onto the keys. The pad sparkles but nothing seems to happen.
“It’s tupping warded! Magic ain’t cracking that,” Santa says.
As Caligula smirks, Sherlock leans in and takes a close look at the panel. “Mustn’t have been in use for some time: No oil on the keys for the powder to stick to.”
“Only other way in is from the territory’s subtrain station. That’s…” Caligula floats up and looks around before pointing to the East, “six days that way.”
1. Tell Santa to get creative.
2. Ask Caligula to phase everyone inside.
3. Enter via subtrain.
Reports are like books. You read them and then you go to sleep. Because they’re boring! Come back next week for more sick self burns.
