Scurvy Scallywags. Ron Gilbert had a hand in it and it has the extra consideration of where your character is positioned in the puzzle field to battle monsters and collect treasure and upgrades. Might only be iOS but pretty sure they’ve kept updating it so should still work.

Nier. It’s very good. The sequel is also of quality but the most unique idea was in the original game and I felt it was more impactful there. I played them back to back last year though, so all ran together. If you’ve played neither I recommend that one two punch. And feel free to set it to easy if you aren’t digging the combat. The story and sub stories and how they are told are the cream of the crop.

If I was in San Antonio I’d go to a Spurs game.

Hey! Thanks for posting this. I really got into the PS4 version when it went Plus a month ago but a friend of mine only plays this version so cool there is no price barrier now. I guess I'll play a different class this time.

I was surprised they were comfortable going M rated but whenever I said that out loud I was told that was a silly thing to be concerned about. Also, I thought Syphon Filter came out post Dualshock so I am wondering how it controls without sticks? I never played it, I just wrote it off being in this thing because I saw it came out in 1999.

Five years and no one said Work Time Fun. I thought it was basically agreed upon by all Giant Bomb enthusiasts that the PSP essentially came into being so this miraculous piece of software could be experienced. It is a miracle and worth digging out that dusty old PSP for.

I played an inning of Baseball and concur, that game is junk. Wish they squashed that Tengen beef and put RBI Baseball on there.

I was kind of under the impression the online component for these would be more than online multiplayer. I imagined leaderboards so the world’s greatest Excite Bikers could finally strut their stuff but I guess no one ever actually said that would happen. As someone who just got an NES Classic a few months ago, I spent less than an hour with these when the service launched as I’d just gone on a nostalgia trip.

@flashflood_29: I've had several conversations about this outside of the thread since I first responded and I guess I concede I just really like Super Mario World and don't know how eating contests are organized.

@flashflood_29: My main point of reference is the pie eating contest in Stand By Me where that is absolutely the case but I also scrubbed through a Nathan’s Famous contest on ESPN’s YouTube channel and somewhat mistook what I was seeing. There are guys in blue hats standing behind the contestants with plates of hot dogs but they dish whole plates of what looked to be six dogs in front of the contestant when they are running low, not one dog at a time as I stated. Either way, Kirby’s advantage is limited because he can’t just approach a mountain of 100 dogs and inhale all of them. He is limited to a plate at a time and has to rev up his inhale each plate. At that point it becomes a question of whether Yoshi could snare all six with his tongue at a time and I believe he could, especially if he just aims for the plate itself. I still think Yoshi is the dark horse contender in this contest.
