@NintendoByNature That's not one I've heard of. Straight horror movies generally do not interest me. I prefer to be scared as part of an interesting story overall.

@Heavyarms55 - If it’s that simple, then Nintendo should have packed a virgin in with every Switch. Just more anti consumer nonsense if you ask me. Hereditary has a great story, and it’s incredibly well acted. Great cast. There’s only a couple jump scares. The rest is psychological terror with supernatural horror. It might be just what you like. It’s streaming on Prime. Kinda feel like I’m cheerleading for it at this point, but it’s a great one.

@bimmy-lee Hey now, it's copyright infringement against God to sell virgins. Of course Nintendo couldn't do that!

I'll have to look and see if it's also streaming on Japanese prime. Amazon doesn't like my VPN.

@Heavyarms55 - Haha. Well, as the old saying goes, I’d rather ask for forgiveness than permission. I’ll start looking around for an appropriate someone to sacrifice. That should go well.

@bimmy-lee I was going to take this joke even further, but I think it was getting too dark. I'm gonna stop now. XD

@PACO_PEREZ Yeah man. Really like Julia’s Eyes. Del Toro has a rare misfire, but he’s great overall. Really liked The Devil’s Backbone especially. I think in retrospect, hype for Shape of Water kinda made me expect too much from it. I just thought it was the creature from black lagoon inserted into a cliche love story of social acceptance at the time. I still think Crimson Peak is a bit underrated. That film has a fantastic final act.

@bimmy-lee The 4ds is coming. It will be sad when it does, since it will render all other consoles useless. The reasons are obvious, so I don’t need to explain them to you.

@Heavyarms55 - Agreed. There are so many avenues for comedy here, but I think we’ve gotten all we can from it here on NL.

@NotTelevision - It’s probably going to make everything irrelevant. Even food and water. We’ll no longer need anything other than the 4DS to sustain us. The last time I checked my tracking number, it was about 75 years through it’s delivery from 3055.

@bimmy-lee Pretty good actually! I don't recall how many people we moved Friday (I think it was around three hundred), but we had a little over five hundred admissions on Saturday evening. That night was insane; it didn't really slow down until about half an hour before we closed. XD

Nobody actually soiled themselves that I know of, but we did have a guest throw up on Saturday. Apparently the guy wasn't feeling the best already, and one of the smells from an INTERESTING concoction in the kitchen area (And yes, I've smelled the stuff since; it's pretty bad lol) about pushed him to splatter point. Then he got scared in the next room, and that was it. They had to halt the house for several minutes until some of the non-costumed crew could clean it up.

We also had a first; a lady near the beginning of Saturday evening actually brought in a Chihuahua under her jacket. They didn't catch it at the ticket booth as her jacket was zipped up at the time. One of the actors in the house reported her (there are walkies and flashlights assigned to each room), so they pulled her out. She was ticked that she wasn't told we didn't allow animals (Seriously lady?), but what were they supposed to do? "Excuse me, sir/ma'am....Are you hiding any mammalian contraband in your coat?"

In 10+ years of operation, the owners have never had this happen before.

@bimmy-lee Yeah I asked the guy I ordered it from (who chooses to remain anonymous) what the screen resolution is. He simply uttered “where we are going, we don’t need resolution”. Not sure where he’s getting them, but various reports show that a Walmart in Pennsylvania has broke the street date of the 4ds by 75 years. I’d check your local Walmart tomorrow to see if they have any on the shelf. If not, you could always get Luigi’s Mansion 3 for 40 dollars.

Oh, dear, the ongoing 'Switch is a home console' nonsense.... What Wikipedia actually says is that it's a hybrid & the Lite is the handheld version.

@NotTelevision The 4DS has so many wonderful things to show us. Do you see?!

@Tyranexx Both those occasions sound hilarious. The doggo more so.

Looks like the summer fever in Southeast Georgia is finally breaking. It’s raining now through tomorrow, and we only have four more days this month with a high just above 80F. Thank goodness, because it’s been hot since May.

@HobbitGamer Hey Southeast Georgia. I Southeast Louisiana.

Every stereotype you can think of applies. Riding gators to work and eating gumbo for every meal.

Fall’s mighty nice ain’t it? The summer is nice for a swim and a cold beer, but the humidity and the mosquitoes get to you after a while.

NotTelevision

HobbitGamer

@NotTelevision I’d love to ride a gator to work!! That’d teach them GSU students what yield means.

Haha, no need to even swim with humidity as thick as it gets! I went to college up in Bristol TN/VA after living in coastal SC, and remember wondering why it was bone cold until I realized they have little to no humidity. It was so weird. That’s the only place I’ve ever lived that wasn’t at least semi-coastal (also lived in Norfolk VA, Coronado, CA), so the absence of an oppressive wetness was so foreign.

Here in the Heartland, we ride cows and pigs to work. My kids ride big chickens to school. Everything is 100 miles away at best.

@Tyranexx - Ha, she didn’t know it was against the rules but snuck the dog in under her coat. That borders on animal abuse in my book, but doesn’t actually surprise me that much. Seems like a good number of people view pets as fashion accessories these days. I can’t think of too many places the average dog would dislike more than a haunted house. Poor thing. Glad someone saw it and escorted her out. If only she could have been bit in the process. I don’t know averages, but 500 guests seems like a lot of people. Glad it’s going well then. Keep up the good scares. The vom guy had an extra layer of fear and humiliation!

@NotTelevision - Thanks for the hot tip! I won’t mess around at my local WalMart, I’ll just head straight to the PA WalMart in the middle of a time vortex breaking street date. Nintendo will not be happy about this, but in this day and age, it’s tough to coordinate a worldwide street date. Seems like lots of items break the date by a decade or two, though 75 years seems a bit much.

@BruceCM - I love threads like that. It was clear from the first sentence the person was joking/trolling (oh boy, at least I hope for their sake it was a joke), and I wanted to get in there with an an appropriate response before the lock. I’m surprised that hasn’t happened yet, but I haven’t seen our resident Chit Chat moderator around for a couple days, so that could explain it.

As long as everyone knows it's just fun, @bimmy-lee .... Thought I'd better just point out that Wikipedia doesn't actually say what they claimed
I certainly wish my Lite had come with a pretty virgin girl included....

@BruceCM - Yes, I was just having fun when talking about the existence of a 4DS with eight screens and volume drift, developed by a descendant of Iwata in the year 3055 and sent back in time to us in 2019. Hobbit, however, was not joking. He has one. I’ve seen it.

@bimmy-lee This is true. It is both transparent and opaque at once. Don't question it. 4DS has no time for questions. Literally and figuratively.

Dang. I swear I spent close to three hours trying to beat these traffic puzzles in Astral Chain. This small mini game took me longer than some of the chapters in this game. Good brain ticklers they are.

@bimmy-lee Here in the NEC, everything is 1.2 miles away but it takes at least 45 minutes to get there.

Here were I live, the hour of the day depends on everything. If I have to go to the hospital at 8am, I have to get in my car at 6:40am... But if I have to go at 10am I will get there in 15 minutes tops. Same as the return home, if it can be 15min, 30min, or up to 1 hr and a half of traffic.

For the record my home town is on the top five of traffic accidents in Latin America and also a desert area, traffic and boiling weather are really bad combinations.
