What's the update?  Is Stadia still a thing?  And if so, is it a good thing?  The ads have died down and I haven't heard anything about it for a long while... so guessing the uptake isn't really buzz-worthy?
Here's the update.

This is why I like laptops.

May your day be filled with Bearrorists and unplayed copies of Ogre Battle 64.

Everytime I see a "Where is administration" spambot I just assume it's a Karen.

Other people can comment on posts that you make.

Black Flag is the only one I've really played and I suspect I won't be returning to the series afterwards. It isn't that I don't enjoy the series, it's just that I feel like I'm getting my fill of it out of Black Flag.

It definitely runs well on Switch and the way the world is set up with the little islands and stuff really helps it avoid direct comparisons with more modern open world style games like BOTW. I definitely recommend it.

I feel like I have a perfectly good anime thread you could use for that instead of feeding the megathread again but whatever.

My biggest anime recommendation is "The Great Pretender" but that's difficult to recommend to a younger audience.

RWBY is anime adjacent and is a really fun watch despite it's issues but it gets incredibly dark around the third season finale when everything pretty much goes to ****. It's not as dark as The Great Pretender but it's still pretty dark. It's a show with the kind of scope and ambition that something like Avatar: The Last Airbender had and while it doesn't have the same consistent quality that Avatar did it's still a really fun series. It's especially impressive considering it's a web video series.

Alphabounce is still sadly delisted which makes me sad.

My two big predictions are that we're going to get a new Pokemon game that's pretty much all open world style areas (they've been blatantly experimenting with that with the DLCs) and some kind of Switch Pro model.

Also, Zelda will slip into 2022.

You'll see new messages here every day. Check back often!

Sorry, as a Professional Ace Nintendo Loyalist I don't have time to sully my hands with players who are unable to clear a Kirby game without seeing the game over screen.

I suppose this is why he is only an "Ace Nintendo Loyalist" and not a "Professional Ace Nintendo Loyalist" like myself.

It's possible the game was delisted. Alot of Wii U stuff has been going that way unfortunately.

Stop it!

Edit: You mean I'm getting voted out now in Mafia?


I finished a game called The Hex. It's a weird little thing where you're solving a murder mystery with a bunch of Video Game protagonists as potential suspects.

Hell yes I'm in for among us!

I just have to breed some stuff to get a full living dex for gen 8 but since I don't hate myself enough already apparently, I have taken on another stupid hardcore Pokemon challenge.

There are these things called ribbons that you get that are a sort of quasi achievement system. You get them for doing things like winning contests or getting win streaks at the battle tower and they're tied to the Pokemon you used to complete those tasks so they can be transferred between games. There's a so called "Ribbon Master" community that tries to get as many ribbons as possible on a single pokemon.

Now let me tell you a story. My first shiny Pokemon (I'm assuming anyone who read this far knows what a shiny pokemon is but they're the ones that are different colors from regular Pokemon and have fancy star effects when they come out of the ball) was a dratini in Firered's save file. Sadly I lost that save file but since I have an everdrive I can get that dratini back and evolve it into a beautiful green Dragonite and since it was caught in the Safari Zone, it is in a Safari Ball which is a nice bit of synergy in terms of coloration. I've gotten really picky

So using the power of cheating, I have reclaimed my shiny dratini and now it shall become a beautiful dragonite that will get all of the ribbons and we will all live happily ever after.

I did Mt. Battle in XD: Gale of Darkness to get the Earth Ribbon and today I finished the contests in Ruby as well as the level 50 battle tower ribbon, the art ribbon, the one you get for beating the elite 4, and the effort ribbon so now I just need to do the level 100 battle streak thingy to get that ribbon and I can move on to Gen 4.

Contests are an interesting beast. The first round is something I'll get to in a second when I  but the second round is an interesting system where you try to get as many points as possible while screwing over your teammates. It's actually a really interesting system and I'm definitely curious to see how it gets iterated on in DPPT and ORAS. The problem with it is that it takes forever. The first round is a good minute or two of just mashing through text and the second round feels like it drags on forever. It's just a drag and it ruins what should otherwise be a fun little side mode.

My other issue with contests is that it repurposes your existing moveset for contests. It's really difficult to get a moveset that works for both contests and battles and I didn't want to do any more cheating for this beyond what I had to do to get the dratini and it's two cohorts (a Snorlax and a Metagross) for the battle tower so I was basically trying to make things work with what I had.

There is a ribbon for doing wi-fi multi battles in Gen 4's battle tower/battle frontier so if you are interested in getting a 50 battle streak in the battle tower I'm down for that.
