Noticed that I can't click any of the hot links Abby left for episode 1 of Thirteen Deadly Sims.

I'm using the latest version of Chrome on Windows 10.

The game has potential, but it lives and dies by its online community which doesn't seem quite high enough to guarantee being able to find a match in a decent amount of time.

Also I'm a beta player and in my first match a dude set me up for a super throw and then immediately left saying "gg I don't play with hackers" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Probably docked most of the time, then undock it and just play in bed during the evenings.

Looks like Nintendo might be cracking down on places hosting the game files? Still available via torrents and from the main AM2R website, this was just a mirror.

I've been checking in on this project for the past couple of years but figured it would either never be finished or Nintendo would come swooping in at some point and kill it. But sure enough, it looks like a 1.0 version is finally ready. Figured I would pass the news along here in case some of you guys had looked at this years ago and totally forgotten about it. I guess the concern now is whether Nintendo tries to take it down now that its actually done. I didn't play any of the demos so I'm excited to see how the entire game looks now

Edit: Been playing for a while and REALLY enjoying Samus' movement and the fluidity of the menus in general. There's options to switch between Super Metroid style controls and the more modern style that Fusion/Zero Mission introduced. Definitely feels like a labor of love that paid off well. Now, I haven't played the original Metroid 2 so I'd be curious to see whether any of you could draw any comparisons for how improved/altered the game feels (especially in terms of gameplay difficulty and things like that)

They really need to add casual battling and trading between players. Other than that it's a nice excuse to walk around and take really dumb pictures. I'm a little tempted to buy that Pokemon Go Plus thing so I don't have to walk around looking at my phone all the time while I'm with friends.

Thanks for all the advice! Definitely seems like a more than feasible option.

In the interest of saving money I've been thinking about cutting my own hair since I usually just get a simple cut at the barber anyways. But I'm pretty clueless on this stuff. Is there much of a difference between kits? How do I do the back? Any advice appreciated!
