MOOD SWINGS #2
Besides being the obvious side effect to a hormonal outburst, “Mood Swings” is a weekly editorial crafted by our editor Jay Tee, alongside contributions from the JTGA team. It’s like a series of extended tweets; 60 to a 100 words each, ranting or raving about something terrible / great that’s happened to us that week in our gaming lives. It serves as a weekly collection of random musings designed to provide a snapshot of what we’re doing, things you should be excited for, and stuff to avoid as you navigate the choppy waters of this wonderfully unpredictable hobby.
Anything, from reactions to a new game announcement, surprising breaking news, to our cat just nibbled our thumb sticks, can be found here. It’s partnered alongside our brand new YouTube series “Keepsake”, a JTGA community collection of classic gaming moments. You can check out the latest episode here.
Each “Mood Swing” will be tagged with either a green, yellow, or red Tarp badge. This represents a visual indicator of our reaction.

The naysayers will lament the console controls, but I for one found Ensemble Studios’ (RIP) attempts at button mapping to compromise where it made sense and overall work well with a pad.
REJECTION BURN -
or 2 -
Needless to say, I’m forced to bail and continue the loop over and over again, either facing rejection or having to lead a group of utter misfits. My advice: don’t play The Division if you can’t handle leadership or rejection very well.
It’s all fun and games until someone in your group has to answer a call of nature, or are so invested that anything less than HYDRA levels of perfection and you’re given the boot.
BETA BE BETTER -
The Yank and Shank is wonderful[ly awful]. I mean, as a mechanic, it’s incredibly satisfying, but as you can see from the above shot, it’s also extremely gruesome.
RALLY ON ME -
Even though I’ve done most of the missions solo (which on Veteran difficulty is BRUTAL), I’ve been itching to try the assortment of different locales with players online. 4 player co-
