Nintendo Gaming / Re: What will Nintendo release in 2021?

Fun! Though I'd have argued I got partial credit for the Zelda anniversary one. Nintendo did celebrate it with stuff and we did get an upgraded remake from the Wii (not U like I said). I'd argue I get 1/4 points for it so I can break my tie with Mop it up ;)

Things FEEL more settled down but we'll see how well that goes. Would like to join in.

Current free games are the new Tomb Raider trilogy including all DLC. Will be available until 1/6 so extra time to redeem.

Did I miss yesterday's game? Possibly. Today is an early access game called Second Extinction. Looks like you shoot dinosaurs so could be fun.

I sent it in just now. Apologies, things have been...rough. If they keep up I may just abstain from future games until things settle back down. For some reason I lost the ability to login on mobile so its been a surprising challenge to get down to my PC to get on the site.

I missed Shenmue but then I'd have to buy the other two so maybe its best for now. I've noticed they will repeat games sometimes as this current one Remnant from the Ashes is already in my library so it will probably come back again some time, especially since it is published by Epic.

Apologies! Completely missed this notice due to some personal issues I won't get into here.

All you lovely people at home are so gracious!

Updated thread title for Hawkeye a bit late and just threw Spidey in as well since that should be releasing soon.

You must not confuse simple with not lively. This is really lively. It’s delicious, nutritious, super-slow fun as we wait two days for Stratos to select a word. Right. Let's play it!

Hay! My dishes just take time to make properly! You can't whip these together in 30 minutes to compete in some Fastest Chef that Makes Passable Food for Critics cooking show!

"Come death, and welcome! Juliet wills it so!"

I'll pick Strawberry!

Also vote BeautifulShy because I'm jealous of the crops she is growing. Maybe if I could grow similar crops I'll vote someone else later...

Take me to the emergency room sauce sounds like an amazing hot sauce name.

I'll select chili pepper, white dahlia, Alpaca, and Char for my items.

Vote Mop it up as is tradition.

I hear she uses toxic pesticides that they then dump off into the water supply and taint my Certified NWR Organic crops!

What time are you planning to have it go live? Don't want it to slip under the radar for me.

Could spin it into a Professor Layton style game with the need to solve puzzles. The roles could all be used by anyone each day but the catch is they need to solve a group logic puzzle to access it (limit once role unlocked per user per day).

That could actually be an interesting mechanic. Killer is unkillable and townies must complete some sort of group task or puzzle to beat them.

Or I could revive my "dueling gods" idea from Eternal Darkness mafia but make it where the god must kill off all the other god's followers to win.

The complaints I've seen for Eternals seem to be around the story and its scope. They try to get you interested in like 10 new characters not to mention villains and side characters, and cover this grand scope. Sounds like they needed an extra film or two to lay out the foundation for a lot of folks. Too large of a cast of new folks so everyone's scenes and plot parts are too short or rushed or flat out neglected. Also seems like a bigger version of the Captain Marvel complaint where they work in a major character retroactively that leads everyone to ask "where were they in Endgame?" Its always tough to do that.

Its cool to see how much you liked it Shorty. Probably one of the most glowing takes I've seen from the film and you mention things others from both sides don't even bring up.

I will say the trailers all don't do the film any service. The jokes about "heroes heroically standing around" was my take from the trailers and promo shots.

Though honestly everything post-Endgame feels a bit underwhelming. Either its because nothing can quite follow up after that conclusion or they are struggling to lay the road for things in phase 4.

In and hopefully life issues don't get in the way of playing.

You're in for a treat with the Kung Fu Pandas. Its one of those rare series where it gets better with each film and they actually ended on a good note instead of slowly dying due to over milking.

Its the octagon the N64 controller had that helped. Modern controllers have a round circle you roll the stick around for movement. I used the those corners in the octagon to ensure I could line up shots and stay steady on narrow ledges.

Bought Among Us hoping to play with folks but never gout any games together. I have no interest in playing with randoms. Would be nice to play with folks here.

Just logged in to redeem it. Sometimes the store logs me out and so I drag my feet on getting in.

Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse


Paladins Epic Pack

And apparently I have 176 games in the Epic Store and not a penny spent there.

I've only spent time in like 14 of them and of that only about half for multiple hours or more. Its basically a gaming retirement plan as thats probably the only time I'll get to most of these.
