@ThanosReXXX - Oh man, that’s time you’re never getting back, sorry about that. Truth be told, when I called the original game Fantasy Pirates, I was only subconsciously aware at most that a game of that title exists. I thought I made it up until I saw it on sale in the eShop.

Funny you should ask about reading the books because the movies certainly pique my interest. I’m working on a basement organization and clean out project, and two of the books are currently sitting in a box of items to donate. Maybe I’ll thumb through them before I haul that box to Goodwill. My wife has filled me in on a lot of the good stuff that couldn’t make it on screen. The third movie should currently be sitting in my mailbox in a red Netflix envelope. Maybe I’ll spend another night not playing Link’s Awakening!

For mainstream cinema, it can't be too graphic, @ThanosReXXX .... &, overall, that (probably, since I haven't read them) be an accurate translation of those books
Just thought I'd make sure it was clear I have read quite a variety of books, including pretty hard-core erotica, in case anyone thought I was bashing literature
& I'm all in favour of mainstream films pushing the boundaries, too! I prefer not to watch actual porn, if I can get enough in proper films

@NintendoByNature - Just getting your veggies in. Responsible. Smart. This recipe situation is a project, no doubt. Not as big an undertaking as Kitten Mania or Calendar Project 2020, but tricky by its own merit. I don’t think my mom will be back home for a couple days, and then the variables begin. How many times will I have to ask her to take pics of the recipes? Will I have to drive there and just do it myself? What is the meaning of life?

@Heavyarms55 I'm kind of in the same situation as you, except I'm seeing Stadia ads on YouTube. Google really wants me to give up my Switch, don't they? lol

@ThanosReXXX re: your other post on another thread:. Wow the plain and full reality of it direct from a Californian in Amsterdam. Either there's actually hope for humanity i didn't see coming at all, or i really need to wake that windfish and get out of Koholint.....

@bimmy-lee Ha, be sure to bring lots of ice packs and some tranquilizers to the basement if you do...

@BruceCM Oh, boy, it would seem that you're in desperate need some educating on what actually can and can't be shown in mainstream media...

As long as a director applies for his script with the right forms and sticks to all the subsequent rules connected to it, then you actually can show quite a bit. But as mentioned before, it's usually done by lower tier actors and actresses. Or the ones starting their careers. Often times, it's also art house movies.

To get some idea of that, look up titles like The Brown Bunny, Lie with Me, Les Fruits De La Passion, Guardami, Intimacy, Ken Park, 9 Songs, Kids, Romance X and Shortbus, to name but a few. Most of them are indeed art house movies, as mentioned before, but plenty of the people starring in them have gone on to star in other movies or series, and are relatively well known in the business.

@NEStalgia What thread would that be? And did you actually just give me a compliment? Oh, my... the heavens must be coming down, indeed...

@bimmy-lee all great questions. At least I'll get my veggies in no doubt. My wife is now on this vegan diet or something like that. Tonight for the first time ever, I'm attempting Orange cauliflower(Orange chicken substitute) with some brown rice and garlic broccoli. All healthy enough to have some pie later

@Anti-Matter You're welcome, man. Best advice I can give you is to go at your own pace. Don't go beyond what you currently feel comfortable with, but do always keep an open mind. The past is the past, and the future doesn't have to be the same, unless you keep looking back to the bad things, in which case it's actually you negatively affecting your own path.

I mean between the kiddy games and the highly realistic and/or violent games, there's still an entire world of in-between games, which you might like after all.

For example: yesterday, I played the Ori demo on the Switch, and it truly is a very charming and enchanting game, which I personally could imagine to be quite fitting for you. I know you previously commented negatively on it, but that was your first impression, and first impressions aren't always right.

Over here, we have a saying, that translates to "you can't say you don't like a certain type of food, if you've never even tasted it", so sometimes, you just have to put yourself out there and try new stuff.

And if you still don't like it after having tried it, then you could always remove that demo from your Switch again, as if it was never on there in the first place, but I truly haven't found anything offensive or scary in there. To me, it was almost like playing a fairy tale.

@MarioLover92 It's pretty obnoxious, really.

@Sunsy I didn't used to hate EA as much. I loved the Mass Effect Trilogy. But you know what those games didn't have? A mountain of "surprise mechanics" and microtransactions. And, you know, they were actually quality, original games, and not the same game as the year before with slightly different graphics.

@ThanosReXXX On phone, Switch and tablet. I'm fully aware of adblockers but I try not to always use them with YouTube and Twitch because I know that hurts content producers. I only use it on PC. And since that only accounts for about half of my YouTube and Twich view time, I don't feel entirely like I am screwing content producers.

It was mostly annoying because it has been the same ad, over and over, for a product I distinctly have no interest in whatsoever AND is something of a rival product for things I do like AND is being advertised during videos about Nintendo games. Like Google is trying to make me not play Switch games.

@Heavyarms55
I was concerning to see more Expansion stuffs and DLC for The Sims 4 PC and consoles (Realm Magic, University Life). I did really hope the latest DLC was the Final add on because they were still pricey. 😣

Quick UGG update, I played it a bit with my kids today. While I had the stick, I was able to get the rake into the lake. Then my son took over and swam around the lake honking so much that the gardener came over to tell him what we were all thinking, “For the love of god, STOP honking!” In the process, he noticed the rake floating in the lake and took it back to the garden. I’m thinking that replaying the rake mission maaaaaay just add enough time to the game to make it “valuable”.

@NintendoByNature - Well earned then. We did a vegan curry earlier this week and subbed the cauliflower for chicken. It was okay. Would have been better if we did the cauliflower AND the chicken and just pretended it was vegan.

@Anti-Matter EA has been milking the Sims for so long with expansions... In any other series those expansions would be combined into larger packs and cheaper. EA gets away with it, because it's become the norm for the Sims...

@Heavyarms55 Which is pretty much why I play most of their older and classic games. Though, I did love Titanfall 2's single player, even if it was a more recent EA game.

@ThanosReXXX Firstly, thanks for reminding me, just downloaded the Ori demo. Secondly, I second the trying new games ideas. I'm reminded last year, I tried a visual novel game for the first time, and enjoyed it. If I never tried it, I'd never know I would like said games.

Sunsy

Heavyarms55

@Sunsy That's perfectly fair. Let me be clear, I don't hate EA because it's EA. I hate their business practices and the way they treat consumers.
