    How is this any different than the military using unmanned drones to take people out? If this is anything like that there will be civilian casualties that are “factored in”.

    Speaking of drones, my man over on Ordinary Things dropped a well timed video on the drone situation: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=V3eOjRhihLU

    MARVEL SNAP

    I never thought a f2p mobile card game would be taking over my gaming time but here we are. It’s just so well made and the gameplay is incredibly addictive. This game is the definition of “one more game”. And it’s similar to games like Mario kart where it’s simple to pick up and get into but difficult to master.

    There are so many ways to win a game it seems endless at this point. I highly recommend for anyone who was thinking about it. I never played hearthstone or any other card time games other than Dead Mans Hand and poker.

    Marvel Snap has me quite hooked right now so even if the movies are “ok” they’ve managed to branch out with their IP and keep it interesting.

    That’s not a shake up. A real shake up would be to bring Terrance Howard back in some manner after the fall out they had.

    I agree. I think they should call it a successful run and move on to something different. The daily show had its place and time but it’s done now.

    Barely getting into Hollow Knight.

    I’ve played many dungeon crawler types, my favorite so far being Blasphemous and Dead Cells being a game I constantly go back to. I actually bought HK when it came out and have been sitting on it this whole time. Seemed like a good time to finally play it with all the DLC out and silksong somewhere around the corner.

    Obviously the game is great and feels very familiar. I’m maybe 12 hours in and it feels like I have uncovered lots of the map already but I don’t know for sure since I don’t actually know what is base game and what is DLC.

    I’ve played plenty of Civ6 with a controller on the Switch. It doesn’t seem that bad but I have not used m&k to play any games since I was a child so I can’t really compare.

    I would say also people should check out the links awakening remake. I think any Zelda fan would appreciate that game. Also the crypt of the necrodancer/legend of Zelda mash up is very good.

    But I see why people are thirsty for another BOTW adventure. Hell there are so many games that were inspired by the first one. Nintendo set the bar so high with that game I think they are a little gun shy to drop a sequel to try and follow that up.
