Title: Mafia LXXXV: Metroid Dread. Dead Thread.
Post by: that Baby guy on March 26, 2020, 11:04:22 AM
Khushrenada, if you will, move this post to the dead thread.

Also, I was expecting to be killed after making yesterday's post. Oh well. Seems like it could be an interesting game!

Ah well, back to Animal Crossing.

I want to commend Kraid on his actions. It essentially removed all of the drawbacks of my decision to out myself early on while maintaining the benefits, since the day 1 vote record can't be erased. I do have other information I wound up taking to the grave but there's no way he would have known that and I'm interested to see how this plays out.
Title: A note on the current Mafia Game.
Post by: pokepal148 on March 29, 2020, 04:48:01 AM
I'll be blunt. I do not appreciate the tone that certain players have taken upon my death and while I was alive. I more than understand that people don't agree with my actions and honestly it was a bit shortsighted overall in retrospect and I probably wouldn't do it again. However I want to remind everyone that there are ways to express your issues with how another player has played in a respectful manner. I understand that real life is absolute hell at the moment and everyone is under a bit of stress but the amount of toxicity that I've seen during this game is unacceptable and I suspect I am not the only player who may choose not to participate in future games if this becomes the norm.

Since I know I'm not perfect in this regard, I ask that if anyone has any issues with how I am acting during the day thread in terms of how I choose to present myself or feels that I am coming across in a manner that detracts from their enjoyment of the game, I ask that they reach out and hopefully we can work something out.

Pokepal, I'm not going to lie, I only took that tone because I was trying to incite being hit overnight. I wanted to help with the numbers in this game, and I didn't want to be too focused on it with a lot of stuff going on in my personal life. I did think it was a bad idea to reveal yourself, but I also didn't actually mean you were going to screw things up, and I think your previous plans have been well-thought out, but just needed some work on execution. I chose hyperbolic rhetoric on my part to get myself killed, and in retrospect, I realize I made the wrong choice.

I'm sorry about that.

Post by: pokepal148 on March 29, 2020, 11:38:45 PM
It's fine. I didn't think any of it was intentional. Everyone is under alot of stress with everything that's going on so everyone needs to be careful to make sure that it doesn't spill over into the game and detract from the experience of others.

Hahaha.. me too. (The guessing part, not making anything memorable. Your super bomb exit was a sight to behold though!)

I was moderately confident that I'd be taken out, as mentioned in PM to someone, and so it came to be.
Oh well. It was fun-ish while it lasted.  :D

By the way, what are the rules for the dead thread?  I assume we just don't say anything pertinent to the game and make jokes?
Title: Re: Mafia LXXXV: Metroid Dread. Dead Thread.
Post by: BeautifulShy on March 31, 2020, 12:24:51 AM
Pretty much the main rules are don't try and play the game still and help the living players with theories and such.
Keep whatever info you have to yourself weither it is true or not.  Finally just have fun and enjoy your time here while dead.

Generally speaking the Dead thread at its most funnest turns in roleplay central and just chatting with each other.

Thanks for the clarification; all sounds reasonable.

Metroid Dread... or Metroid Dead... amirite?
Oh no, it's just us that are dead. I guess the Metroid is still doing fine. Oh well.

I recently ran across a tumblr for Metroid Headcanons called...Metroid HeadCanons.   While I am here and till the end of the game I will pull posts from there and just have fun with things in general.

Post by: ejamer on March 31, 2020, 04:41:31 PM
What was the first Metroid game that people played?

I remember there used to be Nintendo arcade games where you would get a set amount of time to play for each quarter, and could choose from a handful of different titles. Super Mario, Metroid, Punch-Out, etc...  It was probably one of these: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PlayChoice-10

Anyway, when I was a kid we didn't have enough money to buy the NES console, but I had tried some games when visiting friends. But seeing Nintendo games in an arcade was really intriguing - after begging for a quarter of course I'd give it a try!

Picking Metroid probably wasn't a good choice... not knowing you had to start out going left, or how to get into morph ball form meant that most of my 4 minutes was spent just jumping around. Not the best first impression, especially when stacked up to a more straight-forward Mario game!

Still, I was intrigued. Years later - just after the SNES was released - we did end up getting a Nintendo, and I had a chance to borrow and play through Metroid. Without a timing counting down while playing, I was absolutely thrilled to explore the caverns and search out hidden power ups. Finding secrets all over the game world, and even some weird and cool bugs. It took a lot of time and effort, but eventually I beat Mother Brain and escaped before the planet self-destructed.

Oddly, I never had the chance to play Super Metroid until getting it on Wii virtual console, but I was hooked on the series and eagerly played through all of the portable entries on GB/GBA. The series lost me a bit when going to 3D though; I didn't own a GameCube, and have never really gone back to it. What can I say? 2D is my life.
Title: Re: Mafia LXXXV: Metroid Dread. Dead Thread.
Post by: BeautifulShy on March 31, 2020, 04:59:15 PM
Hmm I think for me it was Super Metroid.    I remember getting it shortly after it came out and I was so engrossed with it and it took some time to learn the world and I even had the Nintendo Power Players guide for it. I think it was one of the items that I could get when resubscribing to NP.   It felt really huge and at times even to this day.   I also think my first exposure to Metroid was the Super Metroid comics in NP leading up to the release of Super Metroid. Fun times.

I do remember those Play Choice-10 in malls growing up and I would play them but I don't think I player Metroid till the Wii Virtual Console. Metroid II: Return of Samus I vaguely remember playing it on my Gameboy but I didn't play it that much and it may have been after I played Super Metroid.

Repohts of mah death have been heavily exaggerated. In fact, I'd even go so far as to call dem a part of an elaborate coverup.

Dey are trying to destroy me because I know da truth, but they forget that I am Ridley and I can suhvive anything.

Ooh... I remember those. A while ago we bought a book that collected the Zelda Link to the Past comics; I wish that I had the Metroid one in similar format, but don't think it was released the same way?  Probably accessible online somewhere, but I never enjoy reading books that way.

Post by: that Baby guy on April 01, 2020, 12:55:35 PM
I first played Super Metroid. I think my perception was that it might be similar to Mega Man X. Loved the game. Rented it several times. Didn't own it until I became an adult. Played Super Metroid and Metroid 2 well after. Didn't like either much, but I can see how they got us to Super Metroid, and appreciate what they brought to get us there.

I haven't seen the Super Metroid NP comics in book form like those LTTP books and the Super Mario Bros comics but I did find the old comics online.   https://www.metroid-database.com/old_site/manga/listing.php?vid=1

Clearly, I'll have to upgrade the poll to include this Mafia game but don't let that hold you back from commenting on the other games.

But yeah one of my pet peeves as a host multiple bolded votes from the same person.  I am sure Khushrenada can makes sense of it but for me I almost always ask that there is no bolded votes for the same person.
Title: Re: Mafia LXXXV: Metroid Dread. Dead Thread.
Post by: that Baby guy on April 01, 2020, 09:32:35 PM
I will say this now, while I'm dead, confirmed townie, not really on one side or another, and I'm saying it as a blanket statement for any future game I'm in:

Sharing screenshots or comparing messages from the host that say what role you are is something I'm strongly against. I don't condone it, I will not ask for it, and I won't do it. If you suspect me because I won't share that, it is in principle.

Oh, I wouldn't worry about it. I'm sure the players have read the rules and know:

However, if you change your vote then you must unbold and put "unvote" when editing your old vote in order for the new vote to count. So, Vote Bill Aurion would become un-vote Bill Aurion.

A few votes that are currently ineligible but I'm sure that's the player's choice and intention.

Who remembers the last time we voted out the host?   All the actions became null and void when we voted out pokepal in the GameShow Mafia game and I am guessing with certain roles for this game you don't get a second action tonight and perhaps because of the vote out of the host the next days actions are lost as well to find a new host.  I of course don't know if this would happen but it would teach a lesson to players to not vote out the host.

The only thing I can guess is that Kraid will end up being the townie MVP. Completely dominating the game at this point!  :)
Perhaps Mother Brain lucked into discovering Kraid's identity very early and has been helping pick targets?

Just a little heads up for everyone. I've had all the orders for the day/night come in so I'll be posting the next day a bit sooner since there's not that much left to play at this point. It should be up in around four and half hours after I get home from work. I advise all players to still refrain from saying too much yet until the day is up. Just wanted to let you know how long the wait will be for it to be posted. Don't want to drag the game on that long.
