As Ubisoft strategically times the lapse of embargoes to bury incriminating stories about them in the media, new impressions on the 12th mainline Assassin's Creed game roll in, and Pokepal begins believing the hype. Luckily for him the hype train departs the station safely, next stop: Round Eight!

BeautifulShy had her pick ready to go, so let's hear it!
-   Bugsnax
-   Dirt 5
-   Gears Tactics
-   Sackboy: A Big Adventure
-   Tetris Effect: Connected

Let's get Dirty in Dirt 5!!!

throwin' elbows / ring the alarm!
Give her some room / this one was overdue
throwin' elbows / ring the alarm!
She paid her dues / call this a mood
throwin' elbows / ring the alarm!
Let's get dirty! / that's the jam!

If ya ain't dirty / ya ain't here to party

BShy's plan comes together after her safety precautions, she dusts off her shoulder for another round!

Next up, Mr. Bungle!

Do I need to be on drugs and use VR to enjoy Tetris Effect: Connected? No, but it sure does make it more fun!

Quarantine has Mr. Bungle feeling restless, and now he can't even blow off steam at depraved dance parties in dilapidated drug dens. What to do, what to do?

There's only one way to transcend this cooped up existence... Mr. Bungle drops a line and gets ready to stack lines simultaneously. He fires up Tetris Effect to become truly Connected to the universe. Stacking a perfect 12-line dodecatris, he feels validated in his choice and becomes eager, itching even, to make another choice soon... if only the next round were here already!

Remember kids, if you do drugs, at least do 'em safely!

Stratos is our next user!

Will history repeat itself or will Stratos or TOPHATANT123 be out of the game?

Wowsers! This new Season of Bomb Words is off to a real fresh start. With ShyGuy and Lucario both absent and not signing up and Stratos, Insanolord, Mop it up, and nickmitch all out early, this is going to be a pretty open final. TOPHATANT123 is the last long-time veteran still in play.

Pah! Second guessed my gut. Thought this was my chance to retake the lead but at least this shakeup will make things interesting all around.

Great I am second to last in picking. Not feeling comfortable but I have picked out my choice and I hope one of the two I chose is still there.  Even better hoping for a bomb before it gets to me.

It's only Tophatant's fourth choice, but it sure does ensure a fifth! High five!
Maybe you should consider a career as safety car driver?

From five to four will MASB continue to score?

MASB's not getting sacked today! Using the knowledge gleamed from the recent PS5 user interface reveal (no really, those get reveals now, and 10.7 million people clicked on it), he knows exactly where to look for collectibles and charts a safe path to the next level!

Next to rummage in the sack is Pokepal! Here's what's left:
-   Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla
-   Gears Tactics
-   Tetris Effect: Connected

I'm going to go for Assassin's Creed again. Although I really wish they'd bring back the pirate stuff.

One who wishes for pirates should not be surprised when raiders show up... These may not bring cannons, but they did bring a bomb to steal Pokepal's chances at victory!
Ubisoft inadvertedly buries their new errrr flagship game under the weight of Watch Dogs 3 and Rainbow Six Siege launching "for free" on Gamepass, meaning Valhalla sinks at retail.

Thank you Pokepal. Valhalla was going to be one of the two choices I picked out for this round.

I think this is the furthest I made in a Safe Words game.

Yeah, I don't know Mr. Bungle very well. Is this his first game? For some reason I was thinking that he simply chose the one at the very top of the list.

The Bomb Word has been set, Top Four Time is here!
Let's take a quick look at our remaining contestants...

- MASB is our current Bomb setter, and our first of no less than two newcomers to make it to the Top Four! A dedicated player with previous winning experience in Mafia, their eyes are now trained on the Safe Words crown, and a top four position is already guaranteed. A star in the making...? We'll know very soon...

- TOPHATANT123 is the two-time champion, and our current incumbent coming hot off the win in Safe Words 15. With 6 prior games under their belt, TopHat's Antics are feared in the Safe Words major league. Rocking an impressive win ratio of no less than 33.3% so far, this is doubtlessly the veteran to beat. Will they extend their lead, or lose the crown to one of the upcoming talents...?

- Mr. Bungle is the other newcomer, storming the rankings and faking out veterans like it's nothing with well-placed Bomb Words. He may play the role of a bumbling newcomer picking the top of the list, but don't underestimate the obvious tactical prowess underneath this facade... Will he go all the way, or bungle a chance at a podium position...?

- BeautifulShy has already outperformed her previous outing, when she finished sixth in Safe Words 15. Two games of experience may not sound like much, but it's double what two of her rivals can bring to the table! This time around, with more players, and an unfortunate initial position low in the rotation, she's outlasting many players with more games under their belt. Can she secure an early podium spot? We'll find out right now, because BeautifulShy is first up to choose!

-   Dirt 5
-   Gears Tactics
-   Sackboy: A Big Adventure
-   Tetris Effect: Connected

Let's go with Tetris Effect: Connected.  Did anyone else have fun made up names for the tetrads growing up?

The straight line I called Linedeni.  Let me get another tetris with linedeni.

Alas poor Linedeni, I knew him well, accursed T-piece!
BeautifulShy's choice does not stack up well, and the Tetris gods deliver a T-piece instead of a line, ruining her progress. Disappointed, BShy informs all her friends not to buy the treacherous Tetris Effect: Connected, and the game is reviewbombed to high heavens.

Thanks for playing, congrats on a Top Four finish!

May this serve as a reminder to all that a 75% chance at success is by no means a safe one. Something to keep in mind the coming 2 weeks for no particular reason at all.

MASB selects a Bomb Word again!

I should have gone with my 2nd choice from last round SackBoy: A Big Adventure rather than my revised choice of Tetris Effect: Connected.   So close to a podium.

A new Bomb Word has been set, three players remain. Next-Gen is about to start and all we have left is one Sony exclusive, one Microsoft exclusive, and a top-tier third party release... The more things change, the more they stay the same I guess!

First to guess is Mr. Bungle! Which'll it be?
-   Dirt 5
-   Gears Tactics
-   Sackboy: A Big Adventure
