We've all been elsewhere neglecting this thread, but here we are! Back again and it tastes so sweet!

 

Holiday Prep Time!

 

 

 

 

I been playing the original Super Mario bros today while at work. It's kind of rough to go back to after being used to the physics of SMB3. I die all the time.

I've been doing a little Mario too, mostly Mario Maker tho. I still have not been able to finish an Expert run. Too much crap every time I try.

Hope the payoff is worth all the build up over the years.

I actually am really excited for Infinity War. Specifically, because I think that between the most recent revelation of Wolverine being back in the comics and the attempted acquisition at Fox, that Wolverine may be revealed to be the last person that has an Infinity Stone in a stinger at the end of Infinity War. Hugh Jackman said that the only thing that would make him come back for more would be if he could fight the Hulk or alongside Captain America, so I'm sure he'd be down. Biggest impressive thing is that it sounds like the main reason Disney is trying to buy Fox is for the Marvel licenses and they're willing to divest themselves of one of the news networks to make sure the sale isn't blocked by the FTC. That shit blows my mind. They'd be giving up a lot just to make sure all the comic folks can play together.

 

Now if only they'd buy Sony. I saw that a lot of people believe Spidey dies in Infinity War and is infected with the Symbiote so that he'll get his black costume. I'm kind of hoping that is a set up, because Venom without Spider-Man having a black suit first just sounds bleh. I want Black Suit Spidey fucking shit up for at least 20 minutes.

I need to get back into Mario Maker. I been mainly playing other games lately, but it's almost all Nintendo stuff. I wish they'd hurry up and release the Virtual Console stuff on the Switch.

Started playing Friday the 13th. Fun game, but it feels so janky and unpolished.

 

Super excited for Infinity War though, since Thor Ragnarok was so damn fun to watch!

It really does have Jank and that impresses me. You can’t even tell Gun made like fucking 100 million from it. Still, I had fun with it. I wonder if it was mainly my love of the series and my brothers, doe.

Thor Ragnarok was great. I need to rewatch it.

Totally stoked for Infinity War too.

 

As for the comics, I'm thinking Marvel will be slowly building up their own Infinity Stone storyline over the next couple years, and will probably pay off sometime near when Avengers 4 comes out. It's already starting in Guardians of the Galaxy, and will probably start seeping into other books next year.

Going to see Thor Ragnarok again tomorrow. Best Thor movie of the three made so far.

Next GGT will be a yearly number. We should make it during New Years.

Last GGT was one of the longest-lived ones ever. I'm not certain we can be done with this one by New Years, but I'll give it a try...

To be fair, we started using the Discord channel to play games.

The GGT was originally for random stuff, so that works.

It's 2017 and I bought a Wii yesterday. Wiis are super cheap now. Gonna set it up for my nieces and nephews to play when they're over for the holidays. It came with 4 controllers and a bunch of shovelware, but I did get Mario Kart and Mario Party 8 too, so there's at least something good for them to play. I never owned a Wii until now. Need to get an HDMI converter for it, because I hear Gamecube games look really good thru it.

I've played the Wii I have a few times with the family, but haven't touched it in like 3 years. But alone, I don't think I have played more than like 1 hour by myself.

Also, watched Wonder Woman for the 1st time yesterday. Actually liked it a lot. Movie was so badass. Also love the new theme. There was one scene where she puts on glasses and I thought at that moment that Gal Gadot was the most beautiful woman in the world.

New Mega Man game looks good. Glad to see a Mega Man X collection, but I hope its at least as good as the one they released on the PS2/Gamecube or I'll stick with my 'Cube version.

The Wii is a great system. Especially if you softmod it. I picked up a cheap, cheaaaaap one about 5 years ago now just for softmod purposes and totally didn't regret it. Was my favorite console for the mod capabilities until I got a Dreamcast. That system is just amazing.

Wonder Woman was amazing. I saw it three times at the movies and twice at the drive-in here. I also picked up the blu during Black Friday, but I've been busy rewatching Logan and every other movie that I picked up from that.

Just finished soft-modding my Wii, and it was easier than I thought and I'm glad I did it. I hear new licensed Dreamcast controllers and stuff is coming soon. The DC controller was one of the main reasons I never got into the system, honestly.

 

I've been working so much these past few weeks that I've barely had time for anything else, but I'm off all next week and don't go back until after the new year, so I'm hyped about some free time! Gonna play so many games, it'll be great.

I got a Marvel Legends Moon Knight and Captain Universe Spider-Man figure along with some Tove Lo and Fallout Boy records. I really had a nice Christmas. Man, I can't believe the GGT is so dead since we have a discord now. Makes me feel like CAG is really dying. 

 

I never even did the thing where I change my avatar to Christmas Turniphead on December 1st, then change it to the Krampus on the 23rd. I've been doing that shit for like, the last 6 or 7 years.
