  1. Nintendo Megathread

    Here ya go.
  2. 2018 MLB Thread

    That's MLB Slugfest nonsense. Check him for midichlorians.
  3. 2018 NFL Off-Season Thread

    Isn't this similar to what Marshawn Lynch did before heading over to Oakland?
  4. NBA 2017-2018 Season

    Oof. So much for that Blake trade. That said, it turns out Atlanta also gets Houston's first round pick. We'll have a lottery pick plus two more first rounders. Trust the sped-up process, I guess.
  5. NBA 2017-2018 Season

    Props to Minnesota for making the playoffs and giving the Hawks their first round pick. That is literally the only highlight of our season in Atlanta. Couldn't even tank correctly.
  6. Sony Megathread

    Jeff Bakalar of CNET/Giant Bomb says it is absolutely the reason to buy a Pro and to avoid any and all spoilers. Patrick Klepek of Waypoint has a great review that touches on two extremely tiny spoilers. I'm trying to avoid story spoilers but seek out technological news about it. Only negative I've found so far is that it causes the Pro "to sound like it's taking off" (Brad Shoemaker, Giant Bomb), but meh, that's what I have surround sound and no close neighbors for.

    ASJ may be a good pickup because of the catch rules being changed. He had a few actual catches overturned because of nitpicking, so he may well be a solid TE1 next season.

    Nick Markakis hit the first walk-off home run of his career yesterday to finish a five-run comeback for Atlanta. Braves win 8-5 after being down 5-0 as late as the 6th. I reallllly want the Braves to be that plucky young team that does just enough to get hopes up. That'd be considered a good season for me.

    From what I've read, respawn timers are rough but they don't outright die. And just to go ahead and throw it out there: Boomer never dies. It's like a damn Marc Maron podcast with that animal.

    15-yard penalties for initiating with your helmet. Possible ejections, too.
  11. Nintendo Megathread

    Just how close to Meat Boy is that one on the frustration scale? I am quite intrigued, but I really don't need a game beating me over the head with difficulty right now.

    ...how do you feel about turkeys?
  13. Nintendo Megathread

    +1 to this. Breath of the Wild is a spectacular game, but it just never got to me. The sense of joy and wonderment people describe from this game is exactly what I'm getting from Stardew Valley, so hopefully I can hop back into Hyrule at some point and really get into it. Completed the first 'dungeon' in Blossom Tales a couple of nights back. The game can get a little too close to Diablo territory with the number of enemies it will throw at you simultaneously, but it's still nothing completely overwhelming. Throwing bombs is a bit of a pain, as the game seems to be inconsistent in what constitutes a long enough button press to throw a bomb versus just setting it down. These are minor gripes, though. Especially for $15 - let alone if/when it goes back on sale - this is a perfect replication of Link to the Past. Anyone spend some time with the Switch version of Night In The Woods? Been hearing many a good thing about it.

    If they can manage everyone's health (looking at you, Process), this team could be just as good as the Rockets in terms of depth in just a year or two. They remind me of the '01-'02 Kings; that plucky team that I fall in love with only to see them bounced by the obvious favorites.
  15. Nintendo Megathread

    I'd say Blossom Tales is well worth the $15. It is a blatant ripoff of Link to the Past, but that is not a bad thing in the slightest. Cute, some chuckle-worthy inside jokes ("She's a knight! With a shovel!") and mechanics that feel akin to a comfortable shoe you just slip on.
