@bimmy-lee Too bad this malaise often happens on the wrong moments, such as World Cups...

But the weird thing is, that the Dutch for example, were truly playing their socks off during the European Championship, and so they not only won it, but they also truly earned to win that tournament, and then some.

As things are now, I don't really want to see them to continue to only just barely win, all while continuing to stumble their way to the top with ugly and sometimes even hesitant football/soccer. The team itself thinks otherwise, and I suppose I'd probably agree if I were in their position, but still, far as I'm concerned, it would definitely be a cup with a BIG smudge on it...

@HobbitGamer - Good luck. Sorry if my terrible dog analogy reminded you of your duties. What kind of pup?

@bimmy-lee It wasn’t too ruff......
The pup (Rocky) is a 10lbs, four year old Chihuahua Terrier mix, and he’s pretty awesome. The cat (Jack) is a 19lbs black short hair, and he’s a sweet jerk. Jack only has one eye, and he’s from the streets. Whatever took his eye chomped his head too, because he also can’t meow or sound like a normal cat. If he tries, it just sounds raspy. So he meeps a lot. He’s the one I’ve gotta brush and shampoo next. He’s also my favorite, clearly.

@NintendoByNature I don't know enough about basketball to properlly appericiate that, but it sounds fun!

@Anti-Matter I still need to finish that game. I think I am right outside the that city Yuna was supposed to go to before everything went wrong.

@HobbitGamer I need to revisit FO3. Never played the DLC for it. Wasn't there a UFO thing?

@NEStalgia TES games are pretty popular for that sort of thing, true. A buddy of mine did everything there was to do in Oblivion that could possibly be done in a single playthrough. He said there was one achievement that he couldn't get without playing again.

I really am enjoying Hollow Realization. It is by no means a great game that will change anyone's mind about SAO. If you do or don't like SAO it'll likely just reinforce your opinions. It does have a lot of cut scenes and I think that is part of the point. The fighting and exploration loop is pretty fun and there are elements of loot grinding which I believe is how I achieved demi-god status. Comparing my current armor and weapons with the ones you get commonly is like comparing an M-16 to a flintlock pistol lol. The character creation tool is actually really cool, but because you still play as Kirito it feels weird to change the look. Initiailly I didn't realize that was the case and I spent an hour making my female player avatar - only to hear Kirito's voice come out and ruin it. (I just restarted and kept Kirito's design) the graphics range from "really beautiful I can't believe they got the Switch to do this" - down to "this would have looked bad on a PS2" but somehow it all transitions well and is never jarring. The only time I ran into some performance issues was when I killed like 6 enemies instantly with one attack and all the particles from their disintegrating bodies went off at once. Which really shouldn't ever happen. It only lasted a moment though.

Oh an storywise the games don't follow the anime very closely. It's like an alternate timeline where characters met at different points and there are some characters either only in the game, or introduced at a point in the novels that the anime hasn't reached, idk I haven't checked.

Apparently there's a bowling minigame in Breath of the Wild and I have never ever seen it in-game

Yeah I don’t know either.

@Heavyarms55 Yes! Mothership Zeta was the name. While I liked the tone and setting in New Vegas, 3 had the more enjoyable DLC for me. Each one was like a different place, not just an extension of the Mojave

There is, and once you learn how to do it, it's actually one of the best ways to farm rupees.

I finally made it to the end credits in Ultra Sun last night. Overall I enjoyed the game, but I can't help but feel that the originals did things a bit better plot-wise in some regards. In about everything else, it feels like they filled in what was missing or left out of the original Sun. I hope to tackle the post-game soon but will probably just play some Kirby this evening.

@ThanosReXXX - Well, I hope one or both of your two teams can get it in gear and make you proud. If it ends up US/Netherlands, I’ll be tempted to hop a plane and watch it with you, though I’d probably just be an annoying casual in a tense situation like that.

@HobbitGamer - With that mix, I bet Rocky thinks he’s 100 pounds. Seems like all terriers think they’re the biggest on the block, and chihuahuas either think that way, or they’re scared of everything. I’ve always wanted a chihuahua. Sorry to hear Jack had it rough before he met you. Sounds like he’s living a good life now though. I have a big 70 pound mutt named Maximus (after the Charles Olsen poem) who’s probably around 11-12 years old. We’ve had him for 10 years. Funeral homes, huh... you’ve seen a real zombie, haven’t you? It’s okay. I saw one once in a park. Freaked me out.

@Morpheel - I think there might be a couple spots where you can do boulder bowling. There’s definitely one “official” place to do it, but I can’t remember where it is on the map. There’s boulder golf as well, it’s different from the Korok seed puzzles where you roll a boulder into a hole. I played that game soooo much, and I bet if I turned it on right now, I’d find something new and unexpected.

@Jimut123 have you ever played thrust it's an old spectrum game .It is a bit like gravatar or gravator (not sure how you spell both them names ) one of these are nearly the same as thrust and maybe better. Its not like pong at all but one of the best games you will ever play. You have a small rectangle as your ship on the screen and fire out the back of it when you press the fire button an just work your way around a small course and try and make it to the end before your fuel runs out. You can download it from the internet for free you will find some sites if you Google it

@bimmy-lee Yes, Rocky thinks he’s super fierce. He’s got the terrier speed, and covers the 3/4 acre backyard in about 3 or 4 seconds when he sees something. He’ll back at joggers and walkers, until they pay attention to him. If his commands go ignored, he’ll just stare and bark until they’re out of sight.
Jack has it very good. I even have a harness so sometimes I’ll walk him around the back with me. He thinks he’s smaller than he is, and always wants to share sleeping space with Rocky.
Fun fact; if you put too much formaldehyde in a person, they’ll begin to ‘sit up’. And depending on the conditions, gassed escaping the body can vibrate the vocal chords. My mother learned things like this when she was young and the embalming parlor wall was being renovated; it was a shared wall with her bedroom, with a painter’s curtain hung between.

@HobbitGamer - Oh man! What life lessons your mother learned. You know, it takes special people to do that work, from the anatomical preparation to helping the bereaved through their difficult process. In my dealings, the people at the funeral home have done everything possible to ease the burden. I had heard about the trapped gas/vocal cord situation, I think maybe I learned that from Return OTLD, but formaldehyde sit ups is a brand new terrifying tidbit. My wife dissected a cadaver in grad school, and the smell of formaldehyde just permeated her clothes. It’s a smell I’ll never forget. Kinda like how I’ll never forget how that zombie in the park smelled.

@Tyranexx I agree with regards to the way they handled Lily's mother. I thought USUM tried to tone down how crazy and cruel she was, but that was what made her interesting. USUM tried to make her almost as much a victim as an antagonist and far less cruel and that was lame.

@bimmy-lee Yeah, it’s definitely a work of passion. Another one of those trades people don’t really think about.
That reminds me, did you ever see the old Phantasm movies?

@Heavyarms55 Well, in one she becomes corrupted by the ultra beast, in the other she obsessed over stopping necrozoma instead.

She's really the same character, but in two different circumstances.

@Heavyarms55 On one hand, I'm glad that there was a proper resolution in regards to Lusamine this time around. One of the things that bothered me in Sun was that we didn't really know what happened to her post-fusion other than she was taken to Kanto to get therapy (IIRC). On the other, while I think they still captured her selfish personality fairly well, I felt that the revised version in Ultra Sun was less...interesting.

It could also just be that I'm drawn more to the previous plot twist, too. XD I went into both games blind story-wise and was genuinely surprised by a couple of things.

I could've also done without some of the new extras like the Alola Photo Club and the very chatty Rotom (Which wasn't bad at first and was almost welcome at times, but it eventually got old....), but I'm sure others enjoyed those aspects. I think my favorite thing they added this time around was Mantine Surfing; I thought it was nice to offer an alternative way to move between islands if you so chose.

@HobbitGamer I'm curious now. How did your mom end up next store to a funeral parlor? Coincidence? I'm sure that made for an interesting childhood!

I can attest that formaldehyde is horrible. I remember when the anatomy/physiology class was dissecting cats in high school. The process was done during a particularly warm early May, and MAN did the hallway reek for a couple days.
