  1. Say an article this morning where an epidemiologist said that, if you're wearing a mask post-vaccination, you're doing it out of solidarity or symbolism (his words, not mine). Not doing you a lot of good medically. I'm not really expecting every business to drop mandates immediately (but I can hope). It'll be interesting to see what our governor does. He's been rather proactive on erring on the side of public health, but he already promised to drop the mask mandate next month.
  2. If anyone knows of a site still selling unused digital codes for Super Mario 3D All-Stars, let me know. Thought I bought the game before it was delisted, but apparently not. Physical copies are still easy to come by, so I bought the physical edition yesterday, but no one has unused codes (codes can still be redeemed even though the game was removed from the eshop). Figured I might at least find a few on eBay at a markup, but no such luck. Got a good laugh when I realized I wasn't sure where the cartridge slot was. I bought my first Switch around August 2017 but never needed to insert a cartridge until now. SM3DAS is my first (and hopefully only) physical Switch game.
  3. Back in Feb, Experiment 101's creative director assured everyone that the game would be playable on Series X and PS5. But nothing concrete has been announced by the studio and his comments were vague enough that he may have just meant the game ran fine via backwards compatibility. Supposedly, performance will be improved on current gen systems even without optimization. I'm not too fussed about a Series X patch so long as it looks good and runs well. Everything I've heard or read about it lately has been extremely positive, so I'm cautiously optimistic.
  4. I feel like there's a fair chance Good & Evil 2 eventually sees the light of day, since there's a decent-sized audience waiting for it. Wild, on the other hand..... Given a choice, I'd much rather have Wild. Edit: The good news is that Ubisoft reiterated yesterday that Far Cry 6 and the Sands of Time remake are still expected to release later in 2021.
  5. Yes. The stip is ridiculous. There should be a zero percent chance that Rosa would agree to give up AEW and her outside gigs, even in kayfabe. So, naturally I expect her to lose. Could be some comedy in in it if she shows up in AEW under a mask and bills herself as Red River Jacqueline.
  6. I can't wait for the cinematic match where someone is thrown to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Of course, they'll be off tv for less than 24 hrs,. then appear on Raw the next night with a small bandage on their forehead to sell the 6,000 foot drop. Realism!
  7. Meltzer says that AEW still has big plans for Jungle Boy, but is holding off pulling the trigger until crowds return. That seems to be the AEW mentality in general: holding pattern in the hopes that they can resume shows with crowds soon. I dunno. Pushing a 45-year-old Jungle Boy doesn't seem that exciting to me.
  8. So many botches. I’m dying every time I watch this. Vince would have a stroke if this was on his show. They botch a spot pretty much every time they touch the briefcase. I do wonder if Sherri was supposed to clock Mongo, or if he was going to no-sell the shot anyway.
  9. Got a question. I was browsing the Nintendo eshop for old-school Nintendo games and I noticed that a lot of classic Nintendo exclusives appear to be available on the Wii U eshop, but not the Switch's. I'm talking about the Rare Donkey Kong Country trilogy, a lot of the older Metroid games (Metroid, Super, the DS games), Sin an Punishment, Super Mario 64 (?!) as well as the NES and SNES Super Mario titles, and most of the older Legend of Zelda games, including Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. Have these seriously not been ported to the Switch eShop or am I missing something? Is there a reason for this? It seems like making Majora's Mask and Super Mario 64 available on the Wii would be a no-brainer.
  10. Not gonna lie. I'm kinda disappointed the snowman broke kayfabe and didn't wear his mask.
  11. Sony's said contradictory things about backwards compatibility. Based on their latest cryptic rumblings, it seems like most/all PS4 games should work on the PS5, but a few people I've talked to thing Sony will whitelist games so that only games Sony's staff has had time to test will work on PS5. Last thing I remember them specifically promising was that the 100 most popular PS4 titles will be backwards compatible at launch. They inferred the number would be much higher than that, didn't specifically say that. My physical Sony library is heavy on imports and indie games from Limited Run and such. And I'm going to end up with a good sized digital indie library by year's end. I'm not counting too heavily on small indie games being whitelisted any time soon, if they go that route. The PS TV fiasco kinda soured me on that idea. The PlayStation TV should have been fully compatible with the Vita catalog but never was. Basically, most games which relied heavily on the Vita motion controls were not whitelisted. That's fine on the face of it, but there were a lot of games that had support for the standard controller patched in so it could be done. More annoyingly, there were a lot of games which were designed to accomodate a standard control scheme but still never got whitelisted because.... Sony never bothered to make them compatible. If they do go the whitelist route, I'm skeptical they are going to put in the effort to make 5,000+ PS4 titles compatible. And, with PS TY, you also got into the digital/physical issue. Some digital games were compatible with PSTV, but their physical counterparts are not. PS TV compatibility is a mess to sort out.
  12. Giving some thought to watching Darwin's Game? Opinions?
  13. That makes more sense. Looking at her Wikipedia entry, it looks like she's gotten a decent bit of work the past few years, albeit not in shows that were likely to make her a bigger star or land her a steady paycheck. She's apparently landing some smaller supporting roles in films and was cast in a couple shows on channels I don't follow (Starz, History Channel specifically).
  14. This seems odd to me. Or unexpected, at least. I guess her tv/film career hasn't taken off?
