"Yellow Pikmin: Allows the player to see where all the Bomb Rocks currently are and what their countdown value is. This ability cannot be boosted."

Interesting, a stalling tactic maybe? Losing the red Pikmin was a huge blow to the mafia for making hits. Instead they might try to push for day votes to kill townies.

Would those who had bombs yesterday be willing to come forward?

No vote

I have withdrawn my vote for Crimm.

Given that the bomber is still in play, it might be prudent to spread out our votes to hedge our bets.

A point blank question deserves a point blank response.

1. I contacted BShy initially on the first day to say hello, as they put out the call.

2. Then later I got the PM about the bombs and I responded to that by saying that I wouldn't pass the bomb to anyone, I would join a bandwagon against the most voted person to dispose of the bomb that way.

I didn't however receive the PM about voting for Mop it up.

It's possible the BShy said those names as a trick, it's definitely more flimsy than the other evidence. Psychologically though I don't think you would want to associate yourself with anyone else in the mafia. If for example Bungle needed to rally votes to save BShy on later days, then that would look suspicious.

If everyone is telling the truth that exonerates Mop it up and likely Luigi Dude and Nickmitch.

This message from day 2 implies that each of these people are townies, unless it's an elaborate rouse.

"Only 3 people contacted me. Bungle5, Tophatant123 and pokepal148.   So for now Bungle and Tophatant123 are on my most likely not going to vote for them unless they give me a reason to."

I'm going to throw out another vote for an inactive for now.

Unvote Crimm

What a plot twist, BeautifulShy struck me as a townie with the PMs they were sending, it was all a ruse.

If the mafia are taking themselves out one by one that's fine by me

Insanely lucky hit from the vigilante.

The no vote ended up not being horrible all things considered. The rookie cop may have caused more confusion than help, so insanolord's loss isn't too much of a setback.

I'll continue chasing inactives.

Vote Luigi Dude

I've finished reading the rule tome and there's some fascinating stuff in there. The Pikmin gimmicks are super in-depth.

Also need to keep an eye out for the bombs and the rookie cop. This game's packed!

I'll start with the only way I know how, luring people put into the open. If you respond in the thread I will withdraw my vote.

Vote nickmitch

Editing on point

Another great episode and a fun history lesson with that last question. I appreciate the detail and nuance these topics get, rather than just making stuff up because it sounds true.

Like Triangle Strategy being developed by the same team that worked on Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness, using a heavily modified version of the Disaster Day of Crisis engine.

Thanks Khushrenada for putting on another great game, the theme really shined this time around.

I .. I .. I don't want to go

Exciting, I get to make the final choice, my destiny is in my hands now.

If you have any leftover tomato juice and Tabasco sauce you can transform your cocktail into a Bloody Mary. Let me tell you from experience, you have to handle this with care, what you don't want to do is spill the Tabasco all over your privates. I'm always burning my nuts.

I really had a good laugh this episode.

I've put Langrisser on the wishlist because I recently found out the team was responsible for, arguably the best SMT, Devil Survivor. A curiosity purchase, if it gets cheap enough.

(Love reading these statistics Khush, your dedication to forum games is indefatigable. Hoping to take the crown in style)

I know what you're all thinking, eggs right, are they vegetarian? Well the way I see it, on a farm when a chicken lays an egg, that egg is unfertilised so whatever you do it's not going to hatch. What else would you do? Take the chicken And just whack it up the jacksy?

If you don't want meat we can use other sources of protein; cashews, almonds, pistachios. You've got to be careful about keeping these at the right temperature, I'm always burning me nuts.

This art is... incredible!

I love pasta.

They'll be eating it and saying, "Oh! What is that??"

I'll point and say, "That's pasta".

I'm so happy that you brought The House in Fata Morgana to my attention. It's a wonderful game and handles it's themes with so much sensitivity. Once I got into it, I found it hard to put it down.

Nintendo Gaming / Re: What will Nintendo release in 2022?

  • The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 is NOT coming out this year. It's been moved back to the launch of the Switch 2
  • Speaking of the Switch 2, it's going to be announced at E3, with one of its features being backwards compatibility.
  • Metroid Dread gets a DLC expansion, again, I don't play it either.
  • Xenoblade 3 gets announced and released, it's got a whole new art style for the characters, different from 1, X & 2.
  • A brand new Fire Emblem releases, not a remake. Releases in the 2nd half of the year, after E3.
  • A port with new content for NES Remix.
  • I want to try and guess some new IPs with these next few. So let's go with an Intelligent Systems developed puzzle game with multiplayer.
  • Under represented genres on Switch? Let's say Nintendo put out an eShop only, 2D platformer roguelike game.
  • Nintendo release some internally developed visual novel, beautiful art style. The phrase "passion project" is used in the marketing material. Doesn't chart once on the US eShop monthly listings.
  • Lastly let's say some cool rhythm game that's a new franchise, not Rhythm Heaven or Band Brothers or Donkey Konga or something.

At the very least I managed to finish Horizon Zero Dawn. As they came out a week apart and have similar mechanics, it's hard not to compare this game with Breath of the Wild. I actually think the two games compliment each other well, rather than one being clearly better.

For an open world game Horizon has really great nuanced combat with a wide variety of weapons. In Zelda, combat isn't really a focus (though I will say a huge improvement over previous entries).

Zelda has a greater emphasis on freedom and exploration, with shrines, koroks, photos and resources. In Horizon there's not much of a reason to just head out and walk in a random direction, when I went somewhere it was with purpose.

Horizon has excellent lore to dig into, whereas in BOTW I thought the lore was pretty shallow.

BOTW's crafting system is really fun and silly, as you mash random things together and see what comes out. Horizon is a lot more utilitarian, there are only a very small handful of resources that you will actually need to pick up

Horizon has some amazing DLC that fits perfectly into the main game. As for BOTW's DLC, well I was so underwhelmed I never bought it.

BOTW has a crazy physics system that you can get really creative with. Plus the fact you can go literally anyway. With Horizon it's more of what you see is what you get.

Both the games are a phenomenal first attempt at an open world game, it goes to show what can happen when you get developers working on new genres.
