TOPHANTANT123 will decide the next Bomb word.

Unbelievable! Once again, the host doesn't let me select a bomb word! What's going on here?!  ;)

I'll pick up Sackboy: A Big Adventure. Maybe they've figured out good platformer physics this time.

What we need is a good game of Bomb Words, then everyone gets a bomb word! Actually, that gives me an idea for a new version of the game where everyone gets to pick a bomb word at once. Bit of a mass Russian Roulette situation. Maybe I should host a game.

Sackboy gets a late-stage title change when the unfortunate implications of its title are pointed out to Sumo Digital by MASB... The new title is... Safeboy! MASB is rewarded with a trip to the next round for their contributions to customer research.

Next up: Lolmonade, will they make a drink out of these lolmons?

Yeah could be fun! I briefly considered letting the dead people decide the Bomb Word for this game, since it's difficult to keep people engaged once they're out of the game unfortunately. But there's an element of strategy in faking people out when the same pool of words keeps getting re-used and slowly shrinks, maybe I'll try that after your game one day.

Well, lolmonade is officially the worst player this game. :P

(Watch him show up later talking about having been at the hospital looking after his wife after she went into a coma from a terrible accident to regain our sympathy and make me look bad with that comment.  :-X )

48+ hours have elapsed, so unfortunately we need to conclude Miles Morales can't juggle his homework and stopping bombs in time. Hope Lolmonade is doing fine, but the game has to move on, Next-Gen does not care for indecisive consumers!

MASB sets the next Bomb, just to spite Khush.  ;)

Nope, this time it’s just being busy.  Good luck to everyone else still playing!

Not sure who's head I should try to get in: MASB, who picked the bomb word, or Kushrenada, whose guess I stole last time to some success.

But I guess I'll go with Yakuza: Like A Dragon after considering neither.
TVman is dead. I killed him and took his posts.

Well, you chose my head because that's what I wanted to choose! I had a joke all lined up! Unbelievable!! Everyone is out to make this game tough for me!!  >:(

I can only wonder how much more fist shaking one man can endure at this point!  :(

Yikes, audiences do not enjoy the pivot of Yakuza beat-em-up/karaoke to turn-based rpg/karaoke. Yakuza: Like A Dragon bombs in reviews. Nickmitch departs Safe Words, determined to study mahjong, plotting a future vengeance...

NWR_Insanolord sets the next Bomb, while indignantly shaking fists dot the horizon.

I don't know if I should retract my fist shake at Nickmitch or accept the result as proof that it worked.

And how am I still not selecting a bomb word already! The host seems determined to let everyone else but me get a shot at it...

Well, since I'm already working three jobs to afford these next gen consoles and all their accessories, I guess I'll sell all my jewelry and gold for cash in order to purchase The Medium because that game seems like a sure thing to increase in value over time.

No! Nickmitch, like his hero Matt Hardy, has become beautifully broken by the word bomb! May he laugh himself intio health and the woken state!

It's a volatile economy and with physical media on the decline this seemed like a sensible investment decision on paper. However, Khushrenada had mixed up his lessons on Boom and Bust economies... and inadvertedly invested during a Bomb economic climate! Now he's all out of safe words and in debt to Cash4Gold dot com. >:(

With both of the Safe Words gods departing the pantheon early, will this mark NWR_Insanolord's seizing of the throne...?

Find out in the next episode, when Insanolord sets the next Bomb Word!

Ugh. That's what I get for sticking with my random number generator system. I didn't like that choice and should have done my own. And worst of all, it was Insanolord's bomb word I lost to. Oh, the shame. If anyone needs me, I'll be sleeping in my car having sold my house to make up for some... less than stellar.. purchasing decisions.

Next-Gen is a moneysink Khush.
Gotta upgrade your TV to an 8k 120 fps HDR OLED, your games consoles of course, then you need new HDMI 2.1 cables, they don't work with your receiver so gotta upgrade that, and then your cabinet no longers suffices because the PS5 is ten foot tall. Welcome to the swindle.

Oh wow what a series of rounds with Nickmitch and Khushrenada getting quick exits.   

Oh also I am next if Pokepal doesn't make it.  I have my game in mind if I do have to chose next.   Now we wait...
Maxi is dead. I killed him and took his posts and changed genders.
