I read the report, I just didn't think you were serious about wanting me to do something about it. I thought you just wanted to share that it happened.

The nice thing about this game is you don't have to worry about villagers moving in and randomly wiping out large swaths of your flower growing areas like kept happening to me in New Leaf.

In New Leaf my final big project was to grow enough gold roses to line every road in my town with them. I'd like to eventually do something similar on my island in this game.

Thanks, thatguy, I wasn't feeling great about my chances of doing better than that this week so I cashed out. I like your town, your flowers are really nice.

5 and 6 are different, mostly due to the cast changes, but I’d still say they’re really good. The “replacements” in the main cast all do a good job, and I particularly like Elroy.

I think the smart way to go would to keep a couple things full time and then rotate between some of the tertiary ones like that and CBS All Access for the original content as it comes out.

57
I think there could be a place in the market for it if done right. It doesn’t make sense as anyone’s only streaming service, but a service at a lower price point that’s only original content makes sense as an alternative to higher priced ones that further splinter or duplicate the libraries of older content. I at least hope it lasts long enough to actually release the Foundation series.

58
Unfortunately the free version doesn’t appear to include Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet, the one thing on there I was interested in enough to subscribe for. It’s a comedy set in a game development studio from the makers of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and it’s pretty good.

I had the option of taking Stratos or Luigi Dude to kill with my power and I chose the wrong one. It's like Mafia crossed with Safe Words.

I think you mean GK instead of Stratos but the point still stands. You and 50/50 choices are a recipe for disaster.

No, the townie alliance had decided on the second to last day that we were going to kill Stratos and Luigi Dude, and I had the choice of which one I wanted to use my ability on and which one we'd use the vote for. If I'd went the other way I'd have survived until the end.

TalkBack / Deep Sky Derelicts: Definitive Edition (Switch) Review
« on: April 04, 2020, 03:44:24 AM »

Explore abandoned ships in this very deep but rewarding roguelike.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/review/53406/deep-sky-derelicts-definitive-edition-switch-review

Games with roguelike elements can often seem very daunting.  Deep Sky Derelicts is no exception to that, with a lot of complex systems needing to be mastered in order to successfully explore a series of spaceships. If you can get past the steep learning curve, however, there’s a lot to like here.

The complexity of Deep Sky Derelicts’ mechanics is immediately apparent from the character creation screen, the first thing you see when starting a campaign. There are eight classes from which to build a party of three characters, and each provides different strengths and weaknesses that aren’t clear right away and will likely require experience to truly get a good handle on. I ended up restarting a couple times early on before I found a combination that really worked for me.

The bulk of the gameplay in Deep Sky Derelicts involves exploring abandoned spaceships, the titular derelicts. The primary objective within each ship is to acquire the data that will help lead you to a mythical mothership full of treasure, but there are also secondary missions of varying difficulties that can net you extra money or gear that will help you along the way. The ships are presented as an overhead grid, which switches to a comic book art style when you enter a specific room.

Battles in Deep Sky Derelicts use a card-based system, where the cards in a character’s deck are determined by their class and the equipment they’re using. This is another area that seems very complex at the start of the game. Weapons and tools have different levels and special stats, and can also be modified with up to two add-ons. There are also skill points to be allocated as a character levels up, and specializations to choose from.

While the learning curve in Deep Sky Derelicts is very steep, as I began to really understand how the systems work I enjoyed it more and more. There’s a lot of replay value here with the different classes and the ships being procedurally generated, and a greater understanding of the mechanics helped me appreciate how well they all work together. If you enjoy deep RPGs in sci-fi settings, Deep Sky Derelicts is worth the effort.

One of my favorite shows, Community, was added to U.S. Netflix today. It's one of the best written TV comedies ever, and it's perfect for binge watching with lots of layered jokes and callbacks.

Not looking great for ol' insanolord right now, but I guess I'll Vote Lucario just in case things swing back.

I wouldn't really characterize either of my votes so far as bandwagon votes. I was just voting for Pokepal as kind of a joke and accidentally started a bandwagon, and I only voted for BeautifulShy because she was clearly going out and I was trying to help trigger the majority and get the game moving.

I just want to make it clear, on record, I don't need any in-game motivation to vote against Pokepal. Especially when Khush is the host.

At least the first time around Sony managed to get through two incredibly successful consoles before being done in by their arrogance. They couldn't even get through an entire generation with the PS4 before going back to their "You'll get a second job to pay for it" ways.

Oof, I just noticed those storage space numbers. If I'm getting Borderlands and XCOM I'm also probably going to need a new SD card.

MLB The Show going multiplatform drastically changes the calculus for me in terms of when I'd want to buy and which one it would be. That's one of my most played games every year and pretty much the only reason I've used my PS4 in years, but if I can get it on Switch or Xbox I have no real reason to buy a PS5. I'd be more likely to get an Xbox SeX for the few non-Nintendo things I care about plus GamePass.

I've been hoping for Borderlands on Switch for a long time, so I'm really glad to see that finally happening. I'm also very interested in XCOM. I'm not that interested in Bioshock, though I'd probably be significantly more interested if it weren't coming out the same day as those first two.

Holy ****, I forgot how Day 1 sometimes goes. I really just wanted him to stop talking that way and it seems like that got him killed. If it were someone other than Pokepal I’d be sad about that.

Vote Pokepal just to get him to stop talking like that.

One of my favorites is my dad's Pepperoni Stew. It's basically beef stew but with pepperoni in it as well, and the stock is part apple cider, which gives it a nice sweetness. A nice warm bowl of that is perfect on a cold day or when I'm not feeling great.

Some of that may be them trying to make people use the built-in smart TV functionality most current TVs include.

I don’t know about where you are, but around here several of the grocery stores offer delivery, but it costs extra and it’s probably swamped right now if they’re even still doing it under these circumstances. At the very least see if they let you order online and have them put it together so they can just drive up, have them load everything into your car, and drive right off. My parents did that today.
