I'm currently finishing up a rewatch of Deep Space 9, and I'm not sure whether I want to go to Voyager or Enterprise next.

I also want to say I recently started Lower Decks and I'm really liking that.

The 16" model isn't that much bigger than my old 15" one, partially because the bezel's smaller so the bigger screen eats into that instead of expanding the whole unit that much. It doesn't feel that different to me. If you felt comfortable taking a 15" model places I think you'd be fine.

I'm tempted to buy a new iPad myself, as my current one is getting old, and more pressingly, running out of storage. I'm just not sure whether I want to upgrade that or my Apple Watch next.

I don't pirate anything currently available, but I don't mind resorting to that for things that can't be bought new anymore. That's pretty much my policy across all media, as while I type this I'm watching episodes of a TV show I downloaded because it's not available anywhere legitimately. I would really prefer not to do that, both ethically and because legitimate releases are generally higher quality and more convenient.

When it comes to used games, I've been all digital for a decade now, so that's not really an option. I've rented games sometimes, but usually that's more of an extended demo, where if I like it I'll buy the full game.

Mine ends in a little less than a month....

I plan on looking into the D+ Hulu adless bundle, or the triple package if my computer continues to skip the ads on Hulu, which it was doing just fine, until this weekend. I can also get ESPN+ in a bundle for cheaper than D+ and Hulu adless bundled, then I might go that route.

I 'm guessing it has something to do with a Chrome update, but i"ve had adless Hulu for years without paying for no ads. Now when I encounter an ad... everything just stops. Not sure how to get past it.

But I believe there was a D+ thread as well.

on the other hand, Netflix is supposed to be launching a Ad Based tier for $6.99mo or something like that. so maybe that will also become an option.

Unless they changed it recently, if you want the bundle with ad-free Hulu you have to start with an ad-free Hulu subscription and upgrade to the bundle through that.

He can want it to be canon, but it's not. Paramount has been pretty clear over the years that only movies and TV shows are considered canon in Trek. Maybe he meant they tried to keep in in line with the show, similar to how some book writers try to keep their books in line with the canon but they are not canon either.

The game itself isn't canon, but there are a number of cases of things starting out in what's commonly referred to as "beta canon," the books/comics/games/whatnot, and later working their way into true canon sources. Most recently, the Odyssey-class Enterprise-F, designed specifically for Star Trek Online, showed up in the trailer for season 3 of Star Trek: Picard, making it canon.

For the theme of this I decided to go back and play more of Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow on the compilation they put out on Switch. The only Castlevania I'd really played before was Dawn of Sorrow, with little bits of some of the earlier ones on VC, so I'm pretty new to the series and I've heard this is probably the best one.

I didn't quite know how to count it, because I didn't play three of these games (Metroid Prime, RE4, and Twilight Princess) until they came out on Wii. I voted for them as played, but technically it wasn't on GameCube.


What started as a throwaway joke in a faux clip show has become a true prophecy. After years of vague hints the Community movie is actually happening!

All the main characters who remained for the show's final sixth season are officially in, with some hints that Donald Glover and Yvette Nicole Brown may be in as well.

Done and done.

Based on some of the stuff they’ve put on the service, broad appeal isn’t at all necessary for Nintendo to consider it. I’m pretty sure more people care about Harvest Moon than WinBack.

Amazing news. Who knows, maybe Pikmin 3 Deluxe doing well convinced Nintendo to take this game off the shelf and finish it. Regardless, I'm extremely happy to see one of my favorite series continue.

Neither of those games added anywhere near as much content as Bowser's Fury, which is a borderline full new Mario game. I was in the staff meetings for this, Bowser's Fury is what made the top 10 list, with 3D World along for the ride.

(3D World? A Wii U game? Really?)

It’s not just a Wii U game, it also includes a very substantial and very good new Mario game, which is what got it on the list.

That was my conceit for the theme but I wasn't really intending for it to work differently than a normal game, but I guess if that's how you want to take it that's fine.

Anyway, which of those final two was the bomb word?

Which must mean

Khushrenada finishes in 1st, which by his own admission just now means he lost!

The final bomb word has been chosen. So, Khushrenada, what's it going to be?

I can't believe Khush would go so far as to try to deceive someone, but his sneaky, underhanded tactics worked, and now he's a 50-50 shot away from repeating as champion.

Andy Richter was Conan O'Brien's sidekick when he first started doing his Late Night show, then he left to star in a couple pretty good but extremely unsuccessful sitcoms, then came back to join Conan on the Tonight Show and his TBS show that followed. He's also safe.

So what will it be, Order.RSS? Are you going to face TOPHATANT123 in the final, or will Khush's run continue?

As Khush said, the bomb word is in, so now it's TOPHATANT123's turn.

The first pick of the final four is in, and...

Khush strikes again.

We've now reached that last stages of the game. The original list of 10 has been whittled down to four.

BeautifulShy: A longtime veteran of NWR forum games, but someone who's never won Safe Words before.

TOPHATANT123: The first player eliminated in the last game, trying to go worst to first.

Order.RSS: Finished middle of the pack the last couple games, looking to break through here.

and, of course, Khushrenada, the defending champion who I'm sure would love nothing more than to win the game I'm hosting to repeat.

Khush has selected the bomb word for the fourth time in this game, so now it's up to BeautifulShy:

Which of these second bananas was the real hero of their story?

MASB has been, and always shall be, this game's friend, but there's no Genesis planet to save him this time.

You guys realize if Khush keeps getting to pick the bomb word that makes it a lot harder for me to screw him over, right?

I have too much integrity for that. Or maybe I'm just waiting until later so he gets his hopes up and then I'll rip it out from under him at the end. One of those.
