MLS is also looking at playing at Disney, and the NHL's plan involves two hub cities, one for each conference. The only American league that's planning on any travel anytime soon is baseball.

It seems like the NBA should do something along the line of what the NHL's doing, with an expanded playoff field and a round robin setup for seeding to get the teams back in form beforehand.

I don't finish a lot of games, but SteamWorld Heist really grabbed me and I just finished off the final boss. Of course, after priding myself on getting all the stars on every mission, one of my characters died when the boss had only 4 HP remaining and cost me one, so I know I'll end up going back and fixing that.

Yeah this is a good game, writing's decent too. Did you use all of the characters Insano? I kinda found myself sticking to a rotation of maybe the first 6 or so, there were 2 or 3 I almost never used because they arrived either underleveled or just seemed weaker.

I mostly stuck with the same crew. They were always the highest leveled ones I had and I was used to their abilities. I forget her name, but the one with the Kill Shot power was incredibly useful once you got the hang of planning around that ability.

The Switch has an incredible lineup of indie games, but I truly believe this game stands with titles like Celeste and Stardew Valley as among the very best examples on the system. Playing a turn-based strategy game from the side-on perspective really changes how you think about it, and the game offers enough different weapon types and special abilities to keep it fresh the whole way through. SteamWorld Dig got a sequel, which is also great, and I really hope Image & Form is able to go back and make a sequel to Heist that expands upon it to the same degree.

I haven't watched that much of the animated series, but it had some neat ideas. They really embraced the format, doing some things with alien crewmembers that would have been tough to pull off even with the effects budget of something like Discovery.

What's the point? We clearly just fundamentally disagree about this, nothing's going to change that. I never should have posted about this, I should have known this would be the result.

I disagree with your interpretation, so obviously I don't know anything about it. This is really the core of the problem we've had with this thread, where you act like your opinion is objective truth, and anyone who sees things differently is stupid and doesn't understand what it really is.

Star Trek at its core is optimistic but that doesn't mean every little bit of it has to be. Some of the best and most memorable moments of Trek are very dark and cynical. If you were to ask fans to name their favorite Star Trek episodes one of the highest vote getters would be In The Pale Moonlight, which doesn't paint Starfleet or the Federation in a much better light than Picard did.

Leif is the only one of those visitors I care about.

We got rid of the matchmaking forum when we redid the forums a little while ago because it hadn't been posted in in years. I think a full subforum for Animal Crossing would be overkill, it would probably only be a handful of threads and like Stratos said interest would probably fade over time. With the usual level of activity in Nintendo Gaming I think it would be fine to just have multiple threads going there.

To be honest Picard didn’t really grab me. I didn’t hate it, and I didn’t think it destroyed his character by any means, but I’m way more interested in Discovery season 3 than Picard season 2.

I'm sure I could find countless promo images for every Star Trek series with one of the main characters holding a phaser. Reading that much into that is just silly, but I guess I should expect that from you.

Wait you can download the Japanese SNES and NES apps from the US store? 


No, but if you create a Japanese eShop account you can download the Japanese versions of those apps and play them using the account tied to your U.S. Nintendo Online subscription.

Announcing an expensive new SciFi series right now is a pretty big risk, especially after Picard & Discovery Season 2 seem to have been near-universally derided by the Trek fanbase.

Don’t let the internet echo chamber trick you into coming to this conclusion. Yes, a very vocal segment of the fan base doesn’t like them, but there are a lot of people who did too.

Oh for those thinking this is some sort of return to Trek, Pike is holding a gun. We come in peace shoot to kill.

Right, they never once carried guns in the earlier shows. Classic oohhboy, reading way too much into minor things because he’s predisposed to hating this.

As for the Eugenics Wars, there’s a great pair of novels by Greg Cox that do a really good job of fitting them into real world history. A miniseries type of thing using them as a framework could be cool.

At the risk of kicking this hornets nest of a thread, today CBS All Access announced a new upcoming Star Trek series on the service that's obviously failing miserably with them, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. Ethan Peck, Rebecca Romijn, and Anson Mount will reprise their roles as Spock, Number One, and Captain Christopher Pike from season 2 of Discovery in what's meant to be a more traditional Star Trek series set on the Enterprise 10 years before Kirk took command. Anson Mount's Pike was one of the best parts of that season of Discovery, and this type of show had been rumored for some time, so I'm happy to see it confirmed.

Anyone who's been itching for live sports since the pandemic started should set their alarms for tomorrow morning, as the German Bundesliga is back! A bunch of games are kicking off at 9:30 a.m. Eastern, with the biggest game being the rivalry match between Dortmund and Schalke which is on FS1.

The Bundesliga is a really fun league, and I especially love it because about half the teams have American players on them. That Dortmund-Schalke match includes Weston McKennie, one of the young stars of the U.S. national team, for Schalke, as well as Gio Reyna, a top youth prospect and son of U.S. legend Claudio Reyna, for Dortmund. The league is also home to Americans like Tyler Adams, Zack Steffen, John Brooks, and Alfredo Morales, as well as the great hope of Canadian soccer in Alphonso Davies.

This could give credence to the rumors of those rereleases, but I think thee fact that they're releasing this original title in July strongly implies their planned lineup of original software in the back half of this year is fairly strong. If they mostly had remakes coming up I think they would have held something like this for September.

If you really don't mind, I'll be over in a minute. I think you'll have to add me as a best friend.

EDIT: I grabbed a couple reds and a white to get started. Thank you again.

Thanks a lot, Stratos, that turnip money means I've almost paid off my house for good. You've got a really nice town. I really hope I can get some roses sometime soon.

I can't believe they still haven't fixed The Simpsons on this service. I don't really care since I have the DVDs anyway, but considering people were complaining about that from day 1 and it's still wrong  that's just ridiculous.
The Simpsons will be available on Disney Plus in the correct aspect ratio by the end of May

Why is it taking this long? 🤷‍♀️

It is weird that it wasn't fixed right away.  You'd think they'd just have the files or whatever lying around.

Before Disney+ launched the show was on a site called Simpsons World that you needed a login for the FX cable channel to access, and it offered both versions, so they should definitely have the files available to them. It also offered the ability to listen to the DVD commentary tracks, which are great.

Turnips don't grow, there's someone who comes around on Sunday mornings selling them. The price fluctuates and the turnips spoil after a week, so it's all about buying low and selling high.

Yes, the older seasons that should be 4:3 are cropped to 16:9, sometimes cutting off jokes.

For those that play the turnip market is there a second best method of getting bells?

I mean are money trees still a thing?

Yes, you can still plant money trees. Every day there will be one glowing spot on your island, and if you dig that up you'll get 1,000 bells and can plant a bag of bells that will grow into a money tree. If you plant up to 10,000 you get three bags of that amount, and if you plant more than that you get a chance of getting three of that amount or else you get three of 10,000.
