"Come death, and welcome! Juliet wills it so!"

I'll pick Strawberry!

Also vote BeautifulShy because I'm jealous of the crops she is growing. Maybe if I could grow similar crops I'll vote someone else later...

Take me to the emergency room sauce sounds like an amazing hot sauce name.

I'll select chili pepper, white dahlia, Alpaca, and Char for my items.

Vote Mop it up as is tradition.

I hear she uses toxic pesticides that they then dump off into the water supply and taint my Certified NWR Organic crops!

What time are you planning to have it go live? Don't want it to slip under the radar for me.

Could spin it into a Professor Layton style game with the need to solve puzzles. The roles could all be used by anyone each day but the catch is they need to solve a group logic puzzle to access it (limit once role unlocked per user per day).

That could actually be an interesting mechanic. Killer is unkillable and townies must complete some sort of group task or puzzle to beat them.

Or I could revive my "dueling gods" idea from Eternal Darkness mafia but make it where the god must kill off all the other god's followers to win.

The complaints I've seen for Eternals seem to be around the story and its scope. They try to get you interested in like 10 new characters not to mention villains and side characters, and cover this grand scope. Sounds like they needed an extra film or two to lay out the foundation for a lot of folks. Too large of a cast of new folks so everyone's scenes and plot parts are too short or rushed or flat out neglected. Also seems like a bigger version of the Captain Marvel complaint where they work in a major character retroactively that leads everyone to ask "where were they in Endgame?" Its always tough to do that.

Its cool to see how much you liked it Shorty. Probably one of the most glowing takes I've seen from the film and you mention things others from both sides don't even bring up.

I will say the trailers all don't do the film any service. The jokes about "heroes heroically standing around" was my take from the trailers and promo shots.

Though honestly everything post-Endgame feels a bit underwhelming. Either its because nothing can quite follow up after that conclusion or they are struggling to lay the road for things in phase 4.

In and hopefully life issues don't get in the way of playing.

You're in for a treat with the Kung Fu Pandas. Its one of those rare series where it gets better with each film and they actually ended on a good note instead of slowly dying due to over milking.

Its the octagon the N64 controller had that helped. Modern controllers have a round circle you roll the stick around for movement. I used the those corners in the octagon to ensure I could line up shots and stay steady on narrow ledges.

Bought Among Us hoping to play with folks but never gout any games together. I have no interest in playing with randoms. Would be nice to play with folks here.

Just logged in to redeem it. Sometimes the store logs me out and so I drag my feet on getting in.

Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse


Paladins Epic Pack

And apparently I have 176 games in the Epic Store and not a penny spent there.

I've only spent time in like 14 of them and of that only about half for multiple hours or more. Its basically a gaming retirement plan as thats probably the only time I'll get to most of these.

It was rather complicated to follow with all the items and such. I was struggling to follow it all before I had to step away from the game.

Congrats to the mafia for winning! Apologies for the abrupt AWOL but things took a turn for the worst in my personal life and I kinda forgot about the game while trying to pick up the pieces. Finally have some bandwidth to plug in only to find the end was here.

Sounds like some clever moves were made. Hoping to have the ability to get more into things in the next game.

I have a lot of games in Epic Store. Its actually been good/bad for my Switch because I get a lot of the indie games I would have gotten on Switch so I'm just not buying half the games I am interested in anymore.

Got both Playtonic not-Banjo games, Celeste, Civ 6, Jurassic World Evolution, and dozens more for free.

Most I'll never touch I bet, but I claim them all anyways. Not missed a week in like two years.

Will try to make a habit of posting here to remind people but no guarantees.

So Townies are just letting ourselves die out slowly. We need to change this.

I thought I mentioned this before but don't see it in this thread. I'm convinced that we won't see any true solution for the problem that is acknowledged until the class action lawsuits are resolved. Anything more than "we are always working to improve our products durability" could be viewed by the courts as an admission that they have a widespread problem and lead to a losing verdict.

We will either get new stealth launched "joycon 2.0s" post-lawsuit or clearly new models will release with new iterations of systems like how We got the Wii Motion Plus baked into the wiimotes later in the system life.

Vote Stratos because I'm pretty sure he hasn't bought Luigi's Mansion 3 yet.

Ha! Jokes on you! I bought it a good while ago! A whole....checkes download progress from eShop lots of unspecific time ago!

Humor aside, I did buy it a good while back close to its release and played a good deal of it. Was used with one of my last 2-game vouchers NOA greedily removed the ability to buy.

I'd re-vote Mop it up because of the false assumption, but things are more serious this time around and I don't want to forget to remove the vote later.

Tradition must be upheld!

Vote Mop it up

Since traditionally we pause on weekends, shouldn't we wait for a Monday to allow for a longer stretch of uninterrupted days?

What If.... ZOMBIES!!!

If there was a need for a full 42 minute episode, and then an follow up episode, and possibly even one more (to just make it a full 2 hour movie-sode) it was this episode.

So I'm slowly working through this and now Star Wars Visions as there isn't really an urgency to watch them. I hope we get additional seasons as there is so much fun stuff you can do with the What If scenario. Additional seasons could also allow us to revisit some of these timelines and see how things are going and answer some other questions.

And damn is this series dark. Between the original Avengers getting killed off, the zombies killing lots of them, the Dr Strange one, and the Kilmonger one have a lot of heavy deaths.

Well it sister tested positive for COVID. The anti-mask/vaccine/science sister. Apparently she thinks sending her husband to the store for various multivitamins will help and doesn't think it is worth testing her kids. Went through the whole gamut of emotions over it when I found out last night, especially how her kids could suffer. They are all such sweet children and don't deserve this. One thing is for certain, we are glad that we avoided all but one gathering she was a part of and had her and the kids wear masks around the baby (when we made it a condition to see her its amazing how easily she was okay with it when she saw we wouldn't be budging on the issue.

Just glad my mother is finally fully vaccinated (dad was months ago).

Now if only my employer would stop parading around like the pandemic is over and making mandatory return to work dates despite a growing voice of concern and dissent while claiming they are listening to employee concerns.

Its already turning into a headhunting situation as employees are asking about how to report others who are coughing in the workplace as if it were a new controversial law in Texas that paid a bounty for reports.

Share them. I had a few sitting on the back burner as well and would be happy to share what I recall of them to you to flesh out more fully.
