System Wars Lounge v76 -- The Haunted and Holidays Edition!

Well, I was in Costco the other day, and I noticed something.

There is lots of Halloween stuff, and some fall stuff. Sure, that's expected. But Christmas stuff is already up as well! It seems that the holidays come earlier and earlier every year!

Anyways, since the lounge is not very often refreshed, I figured now would be a good time, since summertime is over, and the holidays are on the horizon, so get ready for all that shopping!

Normal rules for the lounge apply

1. No flaming, but light ribbing amongst friends will be tolerated.

2. Keep religion and politics in OT. We are here to hangout, not choke each other out.

Can I just say I really really want to see Bowsette in future Mario titles please Nintendo? And Princess Boo is a nice sweet edition too :3

Also, glad to see a new Lounge is in order.

New Lounge? In fashion with the theme... Totally buying a 7' tree for my new(ish) place. Christmas is kinda my jam.

@Chutebox: I knew the Buccs were pretenders! I feel bad for the Browns with the OT loss.

Holy hell, when did Sony catch up with the times and added a keyboard-like search function in their store?

That happened? I used it a couple weeks ago, and still had to use that scrolling letter shite.

@FireEmblem_Man: The whole time I was waiting for raiders to find a way to lose the game.

Also I can't believe colts went for it in overtime. 4th and 5 on your 45... punt

@davillain-: Please no. I saw the Boo version and it annoys me since i'm playing Luigis Mansion 2 right now.

After watching the last trailer from RDR2 I think PC will be the best place to (eventually) play it. Some of the texture quality is debatable.

I'm still happy to play it on console.

I'm more amaze it's getting way more attention other then just Bowsette, I didn't think King Boo would get the same treatment. Truth be told, Nintendo fans just wants an "Evil Princess Peach" to them.

This whole thing was funny at first but now, it's getting overly played now. But I still like the arts at least :)

And speaking of Luigis Mansion 2, I didn't know the first game will get ported to 3DS, I'm thinking about buying it.

@davillain-: Yeah, i'm hyped for that, but that co op thing looked weird if 2P is just a green shadow.

Also my switch died, so i had to dig up my 3DS to take to work.

Tweeted Christian Whitehead asking him to make a Shinobi game.

Have a feeling he'll 100% reply and do it.

Well, I find out that my state is going to be hit by parts of Tropical Storm Rosa. Not like we don't need the water, but I hope it doesn't screw my plans for Wednesday night.

LOL. I make a gameplay video on Overcooked on XBONE and I get a comment about Star Wars, SJW's and accusations of having alternate accounts (I don't), and instantly two dislikes. I know where it came from though, I called the Star Wars fandom over dramatic on EPN's rundown video, because whether or not you like the prequels or the Disney sequels, it's kind of true. There, I got accused for having two alts that thumbed up my own comment, though interestingly, I got two dislikes and one comment relating to that on, again, an Overcooked video (which is as far from Star Wars as possible). Funny that...

Even my political discussions on YouTube have been more contained (like when I watched and commented on John Oliver's recent video). *facepalm*

GOG continues to be God's gift to Man. I don't get much from there, but their diligence in releaseing old games DRM free is just downright commendable.

In essence :(

This site died so hard after they initially botched the re-design. It's fairly solid now, but it was broken as sh*t initially.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it! To bad GS Staff had to do it anyways.

Forgot how cheap the later levels on Revenge Of The Shinobi are. Almost every step or jump is designed to make you blindly go into an attack.

It's a good game for the most part, but Master Systems-Shinobi, GG Shinobi 1/2 and Shinobi 3 are better imo.

Shadow Dancer is alright and gets bonus points for having a wolf.

Indian Jones And The Infernal Machine was kind of a bitch to set up on the controller, other than, still a great game that holds up well. For £4 could do worse.

Missed your post! Yeah, I think the old GS site was just becoming far too dated for the evolution of media-consumption... More video/audio rather than written articles. It just sucks that it was botched so badly initially that it drove long-time users away. I'm not entirely sure why I stuck around, maybe it was just for the nostalgia.

I used to post every single day. Hell I remember bouncing between OT and SW, I do miss the good days when the mods are actually tough and you had to be creative in your trolling. I remember my original ban thread, that was fun.

Yeah, SW is shite now. Nobody gets banned unless you literally shout profanity for every word.

Tell that to QuadKnight. I honestly don't know how he could get banned? It's really hard to get banned around here in these parks.

Also, welcome back Clyde46 :)

NRL is done for another year and i'm gonna have trouble waiting until March next year for the season to start :(

Also how can you guys watch the NFL when the average game goes for 3hrs 12min, has more than 100 commercials and only 12mins of actual playtime lol.

alcohol is usually involved

Also, i think a lot of big NFL fans often have sports packages so they will watch multiple games, or only redzone action, at one time

Those 12 minutes are the best there is in the biz.

Think of it as chess, but with the best athletes in the world acting like the pieces.
