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.

I have such fond memories of Pokemon Stadium like going into Master Ball Prime Cup Final Round 2 with me using Mewtwo and using Psychic to try and get special drops in stats and then using Thunderbolt or Ice Beam to wittle down the Mews HP and hope for a para from Thunderbolt or freeze from ice beam to stop the Mew from using softboiled.   Just one of many memories.

I am glad to see Excitebike 64 as well as I played that a ton and it has a soccer mode which is the inspiration to Rocket League years later.  The create a track is also extensive.

I am going to have to sit out this one.  I am getting a packet of info and the housing voucher so my time in September will be finding a place out in Mesa so I have to step out of the game.

The first pick of the final four is in, and...

Khush strikes again.

Knew I should have gone with Sailor Moon/ Sailor Jupiter and the Milhouse angle.

Fandom shift

As a long time fan of all types of music but more recently(Past 10 years)  the K Pop fandom there tends to be lots of different members leaving these large groups and then focusing on their own careers.  So to the tune of that, I only have eyes for you, Art Garfunkel

Also go listen to Girls Generation new song, Forever 1!!!  It is so wonderful and amazing!!

Oh I'm in the top 4 that is cool.  I think that happened in one other game if I am not mistaken?

Sure why the heck not,  although depending on what happens in the next month or so with the move.  We have been approved we are just waiting on a letter in the mail to set the interview day.  The letter is supposed to be here some time the 1st week of September and then after the interview we have 120 days to find a place so we will see what happens.

So tentatively in and will update status closer to the end of the signups.

Ah right selecting a word. 

Fandom shift

Suddenly Pinkie Pie breaks the 4th wall and jumps on the forum and blurts out various things about the forum like Happy Birthday Mop it up,  How the site needs to do another Greatest Video Game Music of all time tourney again,  or about Caterkiller needs to post more about his martial arts or how there needs to be more discussion about Milhouse and his wierd timeline of his life.

Bummer I missed it! Had a busy weekend and it totally flew by me. And I've been actually checking this game for once until now.

Hasn't it been 48 hours since Stratos was supposed to select a word?

I didn't want to say anything Stratos but when the time went into the  60 hour mark I had to say something. 

Quick! Choose a Safe Word before BeautifulShy and take her place!

lol that would be an interesting mechanic but it would be chaos with folks going out of turn and picking all the different words only to leave a few words so that the other players would land on the bomb word.

I will bump this up and post my current top Ten from the games I have physical and digital versions.

Look forward to it some time this week.

I had to adult this week and I am recovering from something(No not Covid), but I will try to get my list out this weekend.

I'm also really interested in the AEW game. I haven't played a wrestling game in a while, so it'd be nice to get back into one.

I think the last wrestling game I played was way back to WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2011 at a neighbors house in 2015 for the Wii.

Just haven't been interested in the WWE 2K games to be honest.
