I don't think Sony has any interest in entering the gym or gambling businesses, quite frankly.

I just thought her expression when he asked was hilarious.

TalkBack / Re: Super Mario 3D All-Stars (Switch) Review

Importantly, the controls in Sunshine have been deinverted. They did not make it an option, however, so if you like the original controls, it’s your turn to be annoyed like the rest of us have for 18 years.

What is with Nintendo and NOT providing that option?  I was going to pick up Luigi's Mansion until I found out it was plagued by the same issue.

It's taking me some time getting used to. Inverted controls feel normal with the game, so them reversing this feels weird. I've messed up a few times because i'm used to pushing up on the left analog stick to aim down with FLUDD. If they wanted to change the default option, I could live with that. But why not let players choose if they want it inverted or not?

It's weird, I work at a major Walmart and we got no copies in at all (it's not even in our system). Maybe it depends on the area you live in. I ended up having to get it at Target.

I'm still enjoying replacing Mario 64 and Sunshine though (i'm waiting for my JoyCons to be fixed by Nintendo, so I can't touch Galaxy yet).

I was at the Battle of Gamefaqs. The enemy barraged us with scratched discs and nearly finished us off with their dreaded Red Rings of Death. It's a miracle I'm still here today.

Kojima almost killed Konami before and now you want to have him finish the job?

You know, I don't think I've ever played a game made by Bethesda. For me, this news has been kind of a big shrug. It doesn't change my consideration of whether I'd get an Xbox console now or in the future. Even though Bethesda was a 3rd party, I always associated them more closely with Microsoft and Xbox. I guess Skyrim and the 360's promotion of it just tied them together in my mind. So, the move makes sense to me in that their software always seemed to be more in line with the type of gamer Microsoft would seem to advertise or appeal to.

I do appreciate how Bethesda helped changed the 3rd party conversation and situation with Nintendo and the Switch. When Switch was first shown with Skyrim, it was just taken as a situation like EA and Mass Effect 3 at the Wii U launch of a third party doing a quick port of an older game to offer some token of support with a popular game but I don't think anyone had high hopes that Bethesda would be bringing over more of their games to Switch. And, indeed, in the early months of the Switch, there were third parties throwing out various excuses for why they weren't including Switch in their plans despite its big sales. It seemed like this could be another Wii situation of being a market leader but 3rd parties keeping their big titles away from the system. But then Bethesda announced they were bringing over more of their big games like Doom and Wolfenstein and that seemed to spark a change with most third parties taking the Switch more seriously and as something worth supporting. Even with a lot of being their older games and stuff in their back catalogue, it has still helped make a difference in people's perception of the Switch. Hopefully this will keep things going in the future with third parties not outright dismissing Nintendo's hardware like they have been for almost two decades now. For that, I have a positive view of Bethesda just for being a smart third party by recognizing that it made sense to offer their wares to all segments of the market rather than ignoring a portion of it that was steadily growing. It helped signal that the Switch was going to be different from the Wii.

**** going back and looking at "meme of the day" makes me cringe so hard hahaha

Everyone looks back at their early posts and cringes. You mature, your ability to express yourself gets stronger, your tastes change. The result is that you look back and realize you'd do things differently now. So, don't sweat it too much. Good to hear from you though! It's been awhile since you've posted / checked in here.

I've seen some theory's for Wanda Vision, but this image is straight up terrifying...





I fucking love it.

**Potential Spoilers Below** I wanted to go in blind, but accidentally read a few theory's in my MCU starvation period....
abridged version of the theory I like the most is that: Wanda is in a coma and having a mental beak down, her mind creates a pocket reality, Vision isn't aware that it's not real, and slowly the walls keep breaking down as the real world is trying to wake Wanda. The reason the world is trying to wake Wanda is because she is affecting the world around her while "living" in this pocket mentalverse where she is going through eras of sitcoms. Crazy things are happening, and the longer it goes on the crazier it gets. Meanwhile Vision starts to become aware that he is not real, and **** starts to hit the wall as Wanda can no longer keep it together.

question is, does Vision make it out of this being alive again? Does she bring all her family to reality in the end? Will she have a hand in powering up Monica Rambeau (seen in the trailer)? Will she have something to do with "No More Mutants" and creating the setup for X-Men?
