TalkBack / Re: Fire Emblem Engage (Switch) Review

Probably my next switch game.   I do have a question though.

Can you gain affection and get in relationships with say the female protag and a female party member.  Probably a small bar to pass but that is one of the things I liked about Fates.

That Grizzlies vs Lakers game was a roller coaster.  Not only on the court but that squable at half time with Tee Morant and Shannon Sharpe.   I was losing my mind the last 5 minutes of the game.

It may seem silly to care about who the sponsor is on your team's building, but as someone who was there when the Jazz's current arena opened in 1991 this story just makes me smile.

After 20 years of actual toxic waste companies and smart home manufacturers slapping their name on our building, the Jazz will once again be playing in the Delta Center starting in July. That building has always been "The Delta Center" to me, and this just feels like an old friend coming home.

Broodwars do you comment on SLC dunk?

No, never got around to creating a profile over there. It's just a very handy site to check for Jazz news.

Ah reason why I asked was I am apart of the wider community underneath the SB Nation umbrella and was wondering if I saw you there.

Well I am beyond heated about the calls at the end of the game and throughout the Mavs vs Lakers game.

Troy Brown Jr was clearly hit on the hand but their BS report is that Troy's shot was blocked and there was a follow through for a high 5 and that follow through high 5 is allowed.  What nonsense is that??   Argh!!!!

That screw up caused the Lakers to prevent them from leap frogging up to 10th in a 3 way tie and now we are below the Thunder who is probably upset about the call since it affects the Wemby chances.

One of my friends streamed this the other day.  It is adorable and seems like lots of fun.

Did I curse the game by saying I was playing? 

It has been 3 months roughly and no update. Does someone want to check in on Khushrenada?  I was hoping we could get up to 100 but it seems this Mafia Adventure is going to come to a close at 90.

I finished up the Victory Road story and then I beat the last Titan at the lake.  Now with all them beat I can scale pretty much everywhere with my ride pokemon.

I beat the Elite 4 and champ with a team of Quaquaval. Meowscarada, Skuledirge, Tinkaton, Pawmot and Toedscruel.  Those 6 pokemon cover with their STAB Water, Fighting, Grass, Dark, Fire, Ghost, Fairy, Steel, Electic and Ground.

The same type attack moves of the pokemon cover all pokemon with 12 pokemon being normal effectiveness and the coverage moves covering those last 12 pokemon. 

I only have 2 more Team Star areas to finish and then I can work on exploring more of Paldea and playing with others.

We thank you for your understanding.

This was only funny for a day.

Finished up all the gyms tonight. I had the Ghost and Ice gyms left and I used the team I was using for the Team Star battles.

 I had Kanto Persian, Vivilion, Bronzong, Gardavior, Dredraw and Clodsire.

The Ghost one was fun with the double battle. The Ice one was rough to start as I got rushed down with TailWind, Blizzard and Liquidation.   I even used my Terra early on to gain some ground.   I will say that if you have a Levitate Bronzong with Sunny Day the Ice gym is pretty easy.   I was 2 out of 3 with those. 

Now I think I am going to work on the Team Star battles.   I only have 1 down. I also have the dragon Titan to face as my last one of those.

I picked up Scarlet at launch and I am progressing nicely.  Yesterday I finished up the Normal gym to make 4 gyms beaten.Then had a row of Titans to beat and I now only one left. I haven't done anything with Team Star yet. 

I have my 6 pokemon team and just leveling up them. I do like the change of the gym badges and it going from pokemon won't obey if they are over a certain level to if you catch a pokemon at a certain level then even if they go over that level since you caught it below that level it will still obey you. You could in theory only have one badge and hatch an egg pokemon and level it to 100 and they will still obey you.

Oh my goodness we finally got another win against the Nets and it was a team effort.  Lots of taking time setting up and making the right play each time down the court. 

Next game is versus the Pistons on Friday and possible Schroeder, Thomas Bryant and LBJ back then maybe.  See what happens at that time.

Looks like Russ is playing well off the bench.

In two games he has been the engine off the bench and setting up others.

Sad day.

I didn't play the Phantasy Star series till the Wii generation but I really liked the art.

Skies of Arcadia is one of my favorite games of all time and she really deserves props for that game as a whole.

It is sad to see one of the 1st female game developers pass away but I bet she is happy with who she inspired.

Well for me the moving truck is coming tomorrow morning so I should be settled in by the 1st.  I have internet at the new place so I am good there.  If the game starts on the 1st or the 1st week of the month I will be good to play.

I didn't want to start a new thread for this.

My Disney+ subscription expires next month. I'm strongly considering the Disney+ and Hulu without ads bundle. I don't need so many streaming services so I may also cancel my recurring Netflix subscription and subscribe only when there's something I really want to watch.

Has anyone else done this or something similar? How is it working out for you?

I had Netflix for a time and got those gift cards so I could purchase Netflix when I wanted. 

A few months ago I switched over to Hulu with ads.  Costs 8.62 total for just the base plan. 7.99 before taxes.  You can add on different services like Disney +, 2.99 currently, 7.99 regularly,9.99 for ESPN+, HBO Max, Showtime, Cinemax and Starz has 1 week free trials.  They also have feature add-ons  like Unlimited screens for 9.99.

They also have live TV. Live TV, Hulu with ads and Disney + and ESPN plus for 69.99 or Hulu no ads with Live TV, Disney +, ESPN + for 75.99.

If you don't care for live TV then getting the 1 month free trial works and then you can figure out what you want to add to the plan. 

I sure hope Khushrenada is okay...

Yeah this is out of character for Khushrenada to not bring attention to the game after all this time

Good luck with the move BShy. It is going to feel great when you get all settled into your new place.

Yeah I am suppose to hear back from the Housing Athority this week so hopefully something comes of it. I will probably call them today or go out to them on Monday and see what is going on.

and I didn't really hear much for a while till like July where we had to give paystubs from my job at Vox Media.  I am the moderator on Silver Screen and Roll. Been at that job since July 2021.

Speed up to September and I get a voucher and we are looking at places and calling places on if they take a Housing Voucher and most but not all places we had on our list no longer take the voucher even though a month previous they did.   So we found a place after calling 10 other places and it is a good place.  More spacious than my current residence.  There is a sliding door in my closet instead of a walk in door closet. We have a dishwasher, electric stove and a working oven and garbage disposal.  We only have the disposal and gas stove at my Phoenix house.

Glass sliding door in the bathroom for the shower and we have working lights at the new place in the bathroom.   Phx place we have a light that runs on batteries and it is motion sensitive so it shuts off and a shower curtain, 

The living room is bigger with multiple outlets as opposed to 3 working outlets, and we have 5 outlets in the living room/kitchen total and two don't work in the phx house.  I need to go over tomorrow to check the outlets. I can bring my phone charger to check if they work or not. 

But yeah today I had to make a tough choice.   Pay the prorated rent for the next two weeks and the remaining 300 security deposit to get the key or wait to fill out the security deposit  application form, which mom had, when going to pay for the truck and that was going to be a tomorrow thing.  I wanted progress so I took out all my savings from my account and paid the $517 for the remaining 300 security deposit and the 217 for the prorated rent for the next two weeks of October.

I just have to line up the truck and move most large things on the 29th of October.  But till then I have the keys and I can bring small boxes over this week and the start of next week so when the 29th comes I can just get the larger furniture with the truck.

I don't even remember making this thread.

Well you did make it a decade ago.

Still it is a good topic because Gamestop is usually in the news for good or ill.

Hale tweeted this past afternoon about the situation.

Basically she supported every actor's right to be paid well and she has advocated for this for years.
Respect for peers and she advocates for everyone within the voice acting community.
She is under an NDA but her reputation speaks for itself.
Keep in mind the game was created by a full team of hardworking people and keep an open mind about what they created.
She hopes that everyone involved resolves their differences  in an amicable and respectful way.

Bumping this topic for reasons.

A user on SMM2 named Mikey_Mike since 2015 has been working on an unofficial SMB5.

His game is a 40 level game going through 8 worlds.

GameXplain did a 3 hour 4 minute stream of it yesterday and Mike has his Maker ID of OG9-XN4-FNF if you want to try it out. 

GameXplain video.

Here is Mike's feed on Twitter if you want to look at what is in store with the Maker levels.
