I’m one of the few that really enjoy what I do for a living and it does take a good bit of time, but it can be time consuming.

I’m actually participating in a tournament in Orlando next month, so Ive been playing a lot of Soul Calibur 6. I’ll be playing people way younger than me, but I’m also familiar with these fighting games since pre-mk when they really made an impact lol. My son even explained how a discord page works since a lot of people’s in this tournament use it. I really like Marvel vs Capcom too, but that’s because I love Marvel comics and being able to use my favorite comic book heroes in a real game makes me feel great when I actually win lol.

I also play a lot of Monopoly on the iPad Pro

Oh Marvel vs Capcom?

I'm a Street Fighter guy but I remember if you hit the player 1 or two button at the arcade you could get cheap shots after they fell. I only played the original. That used to annoy people.

Good luck at the tournament.

Is there money involved or just bragging rights?

RE: So what games are you playing? Table top or gamer thread.
Ive been playing a lot of Chip&Dale 2 and Kirbys Adventure on the NES 8 bits.

Both came out when the console was dead, but are two of the very best options for that system.

Chip&Dale2 improves on everything that the first one offered.
Cartoonish bosses that take different strategies to beat, miles ahead of the same sprites with repeating patterns that Super Mario Bros passes off as boss fights.
One of the best 2player games on the system, again unlike Super Mario Bros whose 2player mode with Luigi is but a big hoax.
Suffice to say that i consider Chip&Dale the better of the two series in 8bits, too bad that when it was released Super Mario World was already out on 16bits.
And the Rescue Rangers cartoon is also miles ahead of that horrible Mario movie.





Kirbys Adventure is a late addition to the console, but has to be the best single game available for it.
Very fun to play, runs like a 16bit game, Kirby has fluid movements and is a very fast paced character, unlike the other platformers available this one doesnt bring with it the levels of frustration that the others bring.
Not to mention all of the power ups, freedom to replay past levels and fight the bosses on the arena, loads of mini games, heck even though Kirby has the ability to fly around they even added a UFO power up!
A damn UFO!





Its my conviction that these gamse&cartoon producers were either divinely inspired, came from another dimension or were possessed by demonic entities by engaging on ritual magic and drinking adrenalized blood.
This kind of creations just dont fit in the same world as the human hive with all of its psychopathic politricks.

I've never played either, but for Rescue Rangers I remember Duck Tails on the NES.

As far as the frustration goes, Rygar was infuriating. I wonder if my kids would like Kirby?

I think that any person from any age that enjoys videogames is going to love Kirby, plays great, looks great, its very simple, fast and fun.

Duck Tales is not so fast paced with scrooge jumping around on the cane, Ducktales2 was worst than the first in my opinion, it lacks the two player mode that Chip&Dale has so i consider it inferior to the above mentioned two games, still it has way better boss fights than the Super Mario Bros series.

Havent tried Rygar, got nowhere in Clash at Demonhead so far but find it interesting that the skull and bones villain boss fortress is located on route 33.

Haven't hosted a table top session in a few weeks, but just picked up an interesting game.

Darkest Dungeon

It's turn based, got a retro feel, sort of a Lovecraft theme. The music and commentary are fantastic, the story line dark.

And, perma death.

The game is stressful. Right now I don't have anyone in the graveyard, but that was not the case on earlier runs. Seriously, one or two mishaps and see ya.

Right now it is $6.24 on sale at steam.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/26206...t_Dungeon/









Also the game has negative psychological impacts on the adventurers, like if you went to war or something, is a big part of the game.

The game will straight up tell you that often you must make the best decision out of two bad ones, that death is permanent and you will fail quests.

Think you could play this one for 100 hours the way things are going right now. But it can be a stressful game.

I love Darkest Dungeon. Currently playing Breath of the Wild with my kids to help them do the shrines. Other than that, revisiting Dark Souls since it was re-released for the Switch. Possibly one of my favorite games of all time.

Been playing Gloomhaven for a few months now. If you dig a good dungeon crawler boardgame, it's the best there is (and you can play solo too). Very complicated and a little intimidating at first, but once you get into it things run smooth. Also just picked up a Warhammer 40K starter set, still putting minis together but can't wait to try it out. Always wanted to give 40K a shot, and I love painting minis.

Oh and Wingspan too. I never thought a game about birds could be so good.
