unfortunately this part of the filing caps out at $30 mil which is a drop in the bucket for them, but that's no reason to not at least make sure they pay every penny of that $30 mil

no idea if it's normal or not but I am often also in the same boat where I do things for people out of a pure sense of obligation, of detached "I want to be the kind of person who would do this kind thing," with no real feelings associated with it.

I won 3 packs and won most of my games! I've never gone to a prerelease(or any sanctioned event) before EVER so I would have been perfectly content losing as long as it was fun matches! But I got to WIN and ALSO have fun matches! Everyone was super friendly but not like, weird about it?

Also I'd never been to that game store before but it was SUPER nice, my friends swear by it and now I see why. It had this HUGE back room for games with tons of people in it playing various things. There was something going on with some miniatures games over on one side, several mtg pods going semi-simultaneously, and then a handful of people just hanging out. overall like probably 50 people in a room with space for like... 200 at LEAST. Just a really great time, I felt welcomed, was kinda thriving in the group environment(turns out I'm more of an extrovert than my anxiety has led me to believe) and am definitely gonna plan to go back for every prerelease for the foreseeable future.

---------mtg cards talk past this point--------

I wound up with a blue/white flying-ish deck with https://scryfall.com/card/m20/36/sephara-skys-blade and https://scryfall.com/card/m20/52/cavalier-of-gales (which I drew in NEARLY EVERY GAME HOO BOY THAT FELT GOOD). Also splashed black for https://scryfall.com/card/m20/111/rotting-regisaur but I don't think I ever actually got to cast it (or even drew it? I forget). The deck came together really well thankfully, my red and green were both weak as hell so I didn't even have to really waste time considering them (which is good cause I've never had to build a deck on a time limit before, I finished with like one whole minute to spare D:)

I went uhhhh 5 and 2, I guess? I forget how the terminology works. won 2-0 against my first two opponents, then went 1-2 in my last match against this guy with the most ABSURD DECK I HAVE EVER SEEN (HE HAD 2 https://scryfall.com/card/m20/127/chandra-awakened-inferno FOR ONE FUCKIN THING). He was a super good sport though (everyone was) and I mostly just had fun hamming up how outrageous his deck was. And I was responsible for the single game loss he experienced for the entire event so I take SOME pride in that :P

I saw a good post a bit ago along the lines of, "with the internet we have to deal with the risk that anything, once posted, might be there forever, but we can never RELY on it." it's kind of the worst of both worlds. no guarantee of ephemerality, no guarantee of permanence, and we have no real control over which one it turns out to be

SUPERHOT, Grow Home, and Mark of the Ninja! I'm sorry apparently I never play AAA games ever, or short games either, this is all I got.

THO IF GAMES THAT ARE LIKE METROID ARE ALLOWABLE: HOLLOW KNIGHT PLAY HOLLOW KNIGHT IT'S SO GOOD HOLLOW KNIGHT IS SO GOOD(long tho)

impossible. it cant be done. how can we possibly introduce a viewer to our fantasy world without also hamfistedly introducing it to a character who's also new to it. no one has ever done this.

i cannot promise i will still be playing this game a week from now cause battle royales don't have matchmaking and get increasingly hostile to newcomers as time goes on and im bad at the game already but WE SHALL SEE

what would this look like

maybe like, a game where one person controls the character and another person controls the camera, but they're totally separate (so not like in games usually where the camera is centered on the character).

first person, I don't think it has building mechanics at all, but I'm seeing a focus on mobility so far. you can slide down slopes and climb walls n stuff!

as soon as i saw the description for the show's premise i was 100% on board, what a ridiculous and fun setup

tbh I feel like there should be a big flowchart that people have to take that will lead them to the review(s) that are relevant to their personal experience, preferences history with the franchise etc etc etc, and thus most likely to tell them if they'll enjoy the game

Inaccurate cat info in this cat anime. Misleading. 0/10.

(the going theory last time i checked is that cats catch surplus because they communally raise kittens, so they habitually bring the extra back for the mothers and kittens who didn't go out hunting. cats are actually extremely social creatures!)
