DNT! Great to see you again! I've got a couple kids now too, still married and trying to kick ass at life. As far as games go, I've been messing around with Street Fighter V, and my brothers have roped me into playing Anthem with them (though it doesn't look like a Liq game, we shall see). Good to hear from you though!

Played 88 Heroes (a platformer with 88 different heroes and 88 seconds to complete each of its 88 levels...) with a group of friends where we alternated the controller at each death. The new guy gets a new, random hero and a shot at completing the level before passing it on to the next guy. Great social game. I doubt I'd play it alone though.

I also played Street Fighter V at a Red Bull Conquest tournament this weekend. It was my first "real" tournament with 50+ participants. I ended up going out 3-2 (I think tying for 17th place with a half dozen other guys), but my losses weren't blowouts where my opponent was substantially better, so that was reassuring and I felt I was "hanging in there" with some of the area's better dudes. That said, there were some real killers there and after I was eliminated, I practiced with a Diamond FANG player to get some insight into that matchup, and that was a pretty good time.

Finished a playthrough of Thimbleweed Park. It was an interesting point-and-click style adventure game. It was just okay. The ending got weird and meta, and it just sort of fizzled out for me.

Also we've got SFV releasing a new costume for Vega finally (I think the last one was Halloween 2016). Capcom took about zero risks in the design, but I'm still grabbing it up. When they'll finally release his nostalgia costume, we may never know.

Even if there were 10 GSSs every week (there hasn't been one for over 2 months) that wouldn't be enough to pay for what's available.  The one this week also seemed to be invincible during various regular moves and his forward dash (he dashed forward through fireballs, my crouching MK passed through him while he whiffed a crouching MP, etc.), and can combo overhead dive kick into multiple dash punches into uppercut (over 40% health).  It's basically betting against the house.
I wish there were more opportunities for fight money and these golden guys weren't so few and far between as well. However, if you're having a hard time beating them in a standard 1v1, then you could just cheese the AI to make sure you end up winning. For whatever reason, the computer has a very hard time dealing with Vega's FBA, Abigail's run into flip, and Rashid's Eagle Spike if you are just wanting some easy fight money. Maybe something to consider for next time.

In other news, my friends and I are looking to get into a new MP game just to screw around once a week or so. We haven't officially settled on a title yet, but I think we're leaning toward Forza Horizon 3 or Ultimate Chicken Horse. Our common system is Xbox One, so it's gotta be on that particular platform. Both look like fun dink-around games when we are wanting something different from our usual. Ignoring FPS games since we've already done a lot of those, the common ground among our favorite games is relatively small (Respective favorites we play individually include SF, LoL, Fable series, Lego series). If you can comment on the fun factor of FH3 or UCH or even come up with a better game for our purposes, I'm all ears.

Yeah, I saw, although the changes to fight money and the lack of new ways to earn it have made me somewhat salty.  Saying "everything can be earned in-game" is pointless if no one will ever earn enough to buy half of what they put out.  0.9% of players have earned 1 million fight money, and 1.4 million is needed to unlock the 14 characters they've put out so far (plus another million+ for stages, million+ for costumes, etc.).  Halving all fight money earnings through missions and completely removing all fight money earned through trials, survival and story mode was a giant smack to the face saying "yeah, we lied, buy everything with real money or get out."  I've mostly gone back to playing CvS2, since that game is much deeper, has more characters, and has a lot of little touches like special intros that show some characterization.
Looks like the Golden Shadaloo Soldier quest comes back on April 12th with a payout of 18K after entry fees if you're concerned about fight money, but yeah, I too, wish that SFV had unique character intros and such.

Haven't been playing anything new lately.
The SFV season 3.5 patch dropped this week and your homegirl Cammy avoided meaningful nerfs and got some (minor?) buffs. Season of the 'beedo.

Got a copy of Secret of Mana for PS4. Surprisingly, not one I played on SNES as a kid. Will probably save it for when my brother is over since it looks like a game that should be up his alley.

Anyone else notice it took a super blue blood moon to bring Liq back out of hiding?
It was a nice visit. I'll see you all again on January 31, 2037.

@ maxbeedo- Add me on SFV if you want to throw down sometime. I don't play much ranked, but I screw around in casual mode fairly often. Find "Euthanasia" on Capcom Fighters' Network to add me as a friend.

I platinumed I Am Setsuna, mostly because of the interesting mechanics.  I wouldn't consider it above average in story, graphics, design or music (although a few songs were great), but it wasn't terrible either.  I would expect a 5-7 out of 10 game.
My brother loves that game. I haven't messed with it much, but I feel it has a nice SNES-vibe. Music definitely appears to be hit or miss. BTW, do you play SFV? I seem to remember you throwing down on SFIV.

sam/Ray- Hey, thanks guys! It was definitely a fun project. 24 mm buttons for small toddler fingers on that one. I do dig me some fight sticks.

hey, its that liquid guy, soiling our wall.  How are you?
Now that I've found this place again? My day just got better, Tim. Have I missed anything of note in the past few years? A Luch name change and another hundred pages on the thread of winning?

One more of those and we can walk the dog.

Started Hidden Agendas on PS4 with some friends and it's a cool party game where not everyone has to be a good gamer to enjoy it. If you can round up a handful of buddies (I think up to 6 since you can use phones as controllers) to play in your living room, it's a good time.

I'll occasionally play a SNES game or something, but mostly I'm into Street Fighter V these days. I even built my kid a fight stick (with a slimy, Ecto-cooler theme for those suh-weet style points) so he can get in on the action as well.
SFV: Arcade Edition and the Season 3 balance changes just dropped last week, so I've got to learn some new setups and new character matchups. Not sure how I'm liking some of my main's changes just yet, but I'll definitely make it work. I'm still the epitome of a character loyalist.
