Man, it’s Baby Yoda’s world! We just living in it. The little green fucker has taken over our pop culture zeitgeist and for good reason: they’re equal parts adorable and fantastic. How the fuck you doing, friends? Hope you’re hanging in there. I’m in the dregs of the semester, pulling myself through the shit-flecked glass shards that is the last few weeks of the Fall.
But! It ain’t all hopeless. I got a lot of things to look forward to this week. And next! And, Baby Yoda is at the center of my glowing existential heartbeat. Every moment between now and Friday is just time to burn until the next episode of The Mandalorian.
Anyways, this is Monday Morning Commute! I hope you’ll join me in listing what you’re enjoying this week. What you’re looking forward to enjoying. And, anything and everything on your pop culture mind.
I’ll go first!
Hey friends! It’s time for the Open Bar! The chance to hang out with the denizens of Space-Ship Omega throughout the weekend! In fact, it’s the only place and chance to hang out with (Bateman and) me this weekend! I know, I know. Will we ever stream again?
We will next weekend!
And the following week, we got a special stream on Thanksgiving! Seriously!
You know how fucking long OL has been around? This ain’t the first time I’ve used “Please Stand By” as a MMC title. That said, it felt apropos as fuck, so I’m rolling with it. As well, I must confess, I didn’t realize I was reusing it until the url generator inserted a 2, but here we are.
Straight-up? I miss you fucks! The semester hit, and blammo! I fucking disappeared in a cloud of dust. I suppose it’s to be expected, but I suppose I don’t think it’s acceptable.
Oh sure, I share articles. And, like, one or two of you appear to comment. But, a good old-fashioned fucking Monday Morning Commute where we hang out? Shoot the shit about what we’ve been enjoying? Been too long. Far, far too fucking long.
So, I hope you meanderers, lurkers, and longtime friends come out in the comments section!
Here’s what I’ve been digging since the last installment.
‘Borderlands 3’ may be dropping September 13 and an Epic Games Store exclusive. Thank a deleted tweet for the info, whoops!
Borderlands 3-related technical issues seem to be a thing, folks. Last week, Gearbox just flat-out couldn’t get their debut trailer working. That sucked. Now, a deleted tweet may have revealed the title’s release date early. That cool.
I got no words, man. This franchise means so much to me, and I’ve waited so long for Borderlands 3. Like, to the point where I actually got teary-eyed during the trailer debut.
This…this Borderlands 3 teaser trailer is my everything.
I have been so, so fucking patient. Waiting for Borderlands 3 for nearly, what, seven years? But, it appears my watch may be over.
Rumor: ‘Borderlands 3’, ‘Gears of War 5’, ‘Just Cause 4’ and more leaked by Walmart’s Canadian website
Fucking classic uber-fail by Walmart’s Canadian website, folks. The Great White North’s iteration of the Big Box Blight leaked a slew of upcoming gaming titles. The only consolation? Most of them were already expected to be coming down the pipe.
I have been patient. Coming up on four years patient for a proper sequel to one of my favorite games of all time, Borderlands 2. As a reward? Nothing. Silence. A crappy spin-off game. And silence. But that is about to change, I guess. Borderlands 3 has been confirmed to be Gearbox’s next game. And while I don’t think the game will be arriving anytime soon, just to see it acknowledged, just to see it acknowledged as coming gets me excited.
Borderlands is going to be making the hop from video game to movie. Wee! Yay! And even though I know they’re not directly (or at all) correlated, this news just makes me want a third title in the game series even more.
