A great feature is the practice area. You can swap weapons quickly and practice combos. Also shows the button presses and combos on screen to better teach you. Much easier way to pick up a new weapon than just diving into a random mission and getting owned by the monster.

Used it to brush up on my gunlance and it really helped me grasp the different weapon controls.

The difference was they were the target of Zemo's plight?
Yeah. That's part of my problem though. It makes the Avengers hypocrites. If your kill-bots destroyed an entire country, the least you can do is stay a while and fix some ****. According to Zemo in that awesome scene with Black Panther, the Avengers left the country in the state it was in. We don't know exactly what happened to Sokovia post-Age of Ultron, but it's probably safe to assume its entire socio-economic infrastructure collapsed and thousands of people died. None of the Avengers answered for that. Who watches the watchmen?

And don't forget that Sam was reasoning and connecting with her, because not only does he understand where she's coming from, but he was a counselor, and was also trying to get more info out of her. Such as the location of the rest of the NuSS serum. That was until #NotMyCaptain burst in and blew the the whole fact finding mission with his whole "I'm the Captain Now" BS.
Understood, and that's also part of my problem. Wilson is a counselor yet he can't connect and empathize with a man whose family was killed and country destroyed as a direct result of the Avengers' negligence. Stark was willing to kill Barnes and go through Rogers to do so.

also, Zemo used to be part of some sort of Kill Squad, so he wasn't a boy scout prior to his CW actions.
No one is arguing that. Zemo was a colonel in the Sokovian army and commander of EKO Scorpion, aforementioned death squad. We don't have any details of what they actually did. Was EKO Scorpion killing bad people? The very first scene of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier showed Wilson kill a bunch of bad people.

I have a TCL TV.

Is it my TV or did that third episode of Falcon and Winter soldier have the worst lighting in years?

I had to set my brightness settings to their highest setting and everyone still looked like outlines.

I watched the final season of Game of Thrones. This episode was not too dark  ;D :D

That episode was 2 years ago now. That was the last time. At least that made sense from a plot standpoint. The Long Night was a remake of Army of Darkness.

I would strongly disagree on it making sense as there were plenty of films and shows that show night scenes perfectly fine. But I digress; I didn't notice any issues with the episode being too dark and we watched it on our older TV that doesn't always get the color right on part of the screen so we would have noticed it. I'm thinking it was your TV?

The episode looks fine on my other TV. The TV it looked too dark on is a newer 4k TV, but you couldn't see skin highlights. The only person on the show you could see clearly was Zemo because he's a snow beast. Sebastian Stan was hard to see. On my older tv, which Red is burning out, everything looks fine. So, it is the TV. We only got the TV summer of 2019. My mom is probably burning it out. She sleeps in the living room with the TV on all night. Maybe I can **** with the settings to get looking better. It seems to have pretty limited options. Nothing like my 2003 Sanyo Trueflat 24 inch 480i TV has.

I figured it out as there is a shortcut and I was making things harder than they had to be.  I only got killed by the Linel once when I tried to go for an arrow on top of a rock.

The Divine Beast was a fun fight in the first bit and then the puzzle then boss.   It makes the dungeons a multi tiered affair.

I'm starting to dig into this, and man there's a lot to this game. I've played a couple earlier ones but that was a long time ago and I never got that deep into any of them so I'm more or less going in fresh here. The tutorials are helpful, but they still throw a lot of information at you.

One nice thing about the game is that while there is tutorials there is hunter notes to look at in your own time. Think of it like the scans in the Metroid prime games but without the scanning. Information that is there if you need it and on your own time.

Also you don't actively have to document them with paintballs or anything like that. 

If you have any questions let us know.

The single tear rolling down his cheek got me.

Have you seen the Spaghetti O pie video? It was going around a couple months ago. I found the full version on Reddit.

what in the broke w___ hell was that!? A family recipe!? you don't pass that down, you bury that shame in your childhood and make sure your children never know the need to throw together $2 meal to feed a family of 8 people.

So I grew up with handhelds as a kid and I had lots of fun with them.

For the OG Gameboy I would add Dr. Mario, Mario Land 2, Jurassic Park, Balloon Kid. 

There are probably better versions of Dr. Mario on more recent systems but I do enjoy the original game still. 

Mario Land 2 as others have mentioned is still good and the levels are a bit more varied than the original.

Jurassic Park was a port of the NES game.  It can be challenging at some points but it gives nice exploration and danger on the tiny screen. 


Balloon Kid was one I played often growing up in the year I was at Newport Harbor and I was being tested for some things.   Anyway it is a sequel to Balloon Fight but it is a platformer.  You take Alice through the stages and you can fly in the air till you get to the end or you can also deflate you balloons and land on the ground if you need to get past an area that you can't do by floating with your balloons.  You can inflate your balloons when you are on the ground if you wish to. 

Other ones I am thinking of right now are The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle 2. It was a game where you had to make it through these series of rooms with different kinds of puzzles. Lots of timing in the game because there  can be lots of enemies in the stages. 

I haven't played these games but I hear good things about the Final Fantasy Legend series which is a more traditional JRPG but it has some elements where it can make replays near endless and that has to do with the different items you feed the Monsters who is one of 3 classes. Human and Mutants are the other two.   This evolving mechanic returns in the followups but more noticable in the 3rd game.

I have played this one and it is Game and Watch Gallery 2. It is a nice set of games where you can relive Nintendo's past and also play some of the games that were in Game and Watch Gallery. 

For GameBoy Color I mainly played Pokemon on there but there was a few that stand out.

The Dragon Warrior Monsters series is fun and fulfilling. This is mainly a pokemon game with a Dragon Quest skin but of you want to try something like this it is worth a go.

The Tony Hawk games on GBC are pretty good.

Resident Evil Gaiden is really solid for what it brings to the table and how well the game gets the most out of the system.

Pokemon Puzzle Challenge is a really good puzzle game and is one of the best puzzle games on the handheld.

Super Mario Deluxe is probably the best version of Super Mario Bros out there and there is so much unlockable content and ways to play.


Gameboy Advance is probably my most played handheld next to the DS.

The Super Mario Advanced games are all really good but if you had to play one I would say Advanced 4:Super Mario Bros 3 is the one.  It is a classic but it also has e-reader features to enhance the game.

The Sonic Advance games were really good but I would have to say I liked the 2nd one the most.

Wario Ware INC: Mega  Microgames is full of content and a blast to play.

The game which I highly recommend for the GBA is Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.  The story is really good and involving.  It can be very deep with the class system and You have to plan things out with your strategy.   The only gripe most people have which I do not is the judge system but if you take your time and plan things out before the battle it is not really an issue. 

If you want to try and find Final Fantasy I+II to complete the collection they are of their time but can be somewhat enjoyable. I personally prefer the DS Childs of Life game for FF1 and 2.  III is on the DS.


You covered most of the others and have a great collection so far.

You've got a lot of cool ones already! Perfect Dark looked really cool in magazines back in the day. I agree with Uncle Bob on recommending Mario Land 2. The progress they made between 1 and 2 is very impressive. Supposedly Tony Hawk on GBA is fantastic too.

As for Pokémon, I never liked Yellow as much back in the day. The early game is a bit more difficult than Red/Blue because you're saddled with Pikachu. He isn't useful in the forest, against Brock, or in Mt. Moon. So you'll probably want to grind up a Pidgey/Spearow to make it through the forest, and then a Mankey or Nidoran for Brock and the cave, and then you need to train a few others for Lt. Surge/Digglett cave. Although it's probably easier than I remember lol, so maybe you'll like it still. The FireRed/LeafGreen remakes on GBA were really cool.

If you're into technologically impressive ones like V-Rally 3, I suppose SSX 3, James Bond Nightfire and Lego Drone Racing could be worth a look. Although they're mostly just impressive for the system, maybe not so much as actual games.

Another curiosity I don't really recommend, but wanna note: there are some turn-based Harry Potter RPGs on GB Color, with Chamber of Secrets being the last game ever released on that system.
Meanwhile the GBA games were overhead action games, but weirdly the third movie got just a single portable game, and that was an RPG again. None of these rpgs are particularly strong, but they always made more sense for the franchise imo (roam around the castle, study spells to level up, talking to students) than the action games.
