Whatever you choose I'm confident it will be a blast to play, so make sure you are ready to go before diving in. Don't rush quality.

I actually didn't like how they handled Toph. I always hate the "this is your battle young one" angle. It would have been a fitting parallel if she came back to support like how Bumi rejoined the military to help in the final battles of TLA. No reason she can't come back and help in some capacity.

In terms of newer shows, I'm not seeing any mention of Andor. Did I miss that conversation a few pages back? Its great. Some of the best Star Wars material in recent years I'd say. Can't wait to see where it goes.

Jeez I screwed myself out of points last year once again by going into too much detail.  Seriously, need to be brief this year to get the win.

Don't feel too bad, I forgot to make ANY predictions last year so really blew my lifetime score.

  • There will be a brand new Mario game released. (Bet you part of the reason for the delay in the film was to coincide with a new game)
  • Nintendo Switch Online continues the trend of offering DLC to major games as an incentive
  • Advance Wars Remake actually releases this year
  • Prime 4 is acknowledged and even shown with more than a new title screen, but does not release this year
  • New Fire Emblem project is announced; most likely another remake
  • Something Animal Crossing related is announced but not something fans were hoping for
  • Nintendo releases a racing game that is not Mario Kart or Mario Kart DLC
  • Release of a fan favorite game is teased in some cryptic manner and not actually announced or released this year (think like the weird comments about Pikmin 4, but for a series that isn't Zelda, Mario, or Pokemon)
  • We get another hardware revision that is not the Super Switch Pro
  • New Monster Hunter is announced for non-tendo consoles/PC

Bummer, did I forget to predict this year? Better luck this year!

Maybe we can upgrade Pokepal to version 149 finally? We've been on v148 for a while now.

If you can't see eye to eye maybe the shorter one of you two could get on a box or something to make your eyes level? Seems like an easy problem to solve.

I might eventually do this as well so hope to learn some tricks from others doing the same.

Yeah there is more going on and I'm instinctively leaning away from Taylor because she jumped so wildly to a boycott. People should be paid properly, but sure sounds like there is more than just pay going on here.

We cancelled the Disney bundle and now only pay for Netflix and D+. Also get Amazon because we buy Prime for shipping and such. No losses in months until this month. Wife bought a .99/month deal for Hulu to check out a new show and plans to cancel once she is done.


Hugh Jackman is back as Wolverine for Deadpool 3!

This is why I never take actor's words when they say they are "done" with a character. Even if they really mean it, they can always change their minds later.

I still think they should have worked something out for Chris Evans to stay on even in a repeating cameo role and letting him have opportunities to direct shows or films since half his reason for wanting to move on was to explore directing more. Gives him some experience doing it and lets him stay on.

He could still return if the money is good enough or if he gets an itching to pick up the shield again.

The hold up could be the uncomfortable possibility that the game sold poorly on the VC and so there isn't a huge draw to bring it back now.

I went to PAX this year and got to play a few rounds at the Nintendo booth. It was quite fun. I liked the new bow weapon. One of my sessions we got on the jumbo-screen and we won handily so that was a highlight of the event for me. Made me want to go grab the game but I'm on a pause from game buying due to personal situations.

I did go from not caring to really wanting to dive back into it.

Two things bugged me, though due to not having played 1 or 2 recently this could be a thing there.

1) I hated how slow you walked. I know surfing the paint is important but sometimes I don't want to do that or can't so wish I could move around faster.

2) I hated the "either or" for motion controls. Either I needed motion off, or I had motion without getting to use the second stick in tandem. I wanted something similar to how Breath of the Wild bow aiming was but it felt the opposite of that. I like using the stick, then motion to fine tune.

Still quite fun overall!

Everyone here in the pacific northwest USA is acting like it is over outside of medical facilities. My wife and I have even loosened protections a bit as well since our 16-month daughter has the first vax and getting the second dose in the next week. We still wear masks in crowded areas, but if it is less crowded or open air we are letting them go. We will be training our daughter to wear one soon because we want to do some travelling to see some family.

Washington State will be removing the Covid related state of emergency at the end of October so seems most people are pushing to move on now regardless of future risks.

Not that anyone is out there.... but could the no one out there update the title to include She-Hulk!?

Whoopsies! I'll fix it. Totally spaced out. Only seen the first episode or two of She-Hulk so been a bit behind on viewing myself. Got another month for Black Panther and Love & Thunder just dropped on D+ so I'll leave that as the film spoiler for now.

Totally missed the I Am Groot series, should that even get listed as a spoiler? Next series/show is the Guardians Holiday special.

At this rate it will be November before the game launches  :o

Happy so get more David Harbour. Some interesting stuff coming. I am wondering what will happen with Abomination and Zemo since they have gotten cameos.

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?

There is getting to be enough games I would want to play that I don't have physically that I could consider buying the expansion plan. But there is a time issue for me. Maybe once things settle down in life and I actually get to play Switch more consistently it would be worth it.

Off the top of my head in no particular order:

Mario Kart
Breath of the Wild
Mario Odyssey
Monster Hunter Rise
Monster Hunter GenU
Three Houses
Animal Crossing
Stardew Valley
Lets Go Pikachu

There are just my favorite and/or most played games on Switch so included the multiplatform ones as well.

I believe I was on my old account here at the time. I think I made my new one to be sort of "reborn" in 2005.
