yep, the more I read, it sounds terrible. May give it a rent and see how that goes
Yeah there's nothing wrong with kids and bad games, but if the game is downright broken, that's a different story. Sounds like you can't even get past the menu half the time.

Anyone play Tony Hawk 5? Reviews sound pretty bad, but this is for kids under 10 who never played the first 4 and love skateboarding
I get that it is for your kids, but this doesn't sound garden variety not-great, it sounds *really* bad.

Non Political Current Events Thread

People want free content, the idea of paying for a print newspaper makes millennials angry. Which is really sad, because there is something immensely satisfying to me about going down to the bottom of the driveway and picking up a fresh paper to read. One of those areas where I really wish we could...

Zesty Blood Orange Diet Coke tastes like burnt dadholes distilled in dip spit.

Do not recommend.
I don't think I've ever had a good flavored soda in that vein.

Our daughter wants to do Girl Scouts so we have been in touch with the Troop Leader down here in eastern Lancaster County.

Take away the glasses and Stumpf as a slight likeness to @dodint
You're not wrong, heh.

During my CG days, in order to carry OC, you had to get sprayed by it. I will never forget, 16 years ago, the "OC! OC! OC!" as my face got doused with the stuff. That experience sucked. Apparently I almost jumped off the pier into Little Creek Cove in VA :lol: And then it sucked again two hours late...

Still, a class B felony is a worrisome charge. Under New Hampshire law, a conviction would carry a potential sentence of three-and-a-half to seven years in prison.
For possession. "Live free or die", amirite?

Yup. There is a steady migration of toys that come up from the living room and to the bed. Every so often I make the return trip by grabbing a handful of them and returning them to the basket in the living room. :thumb: :lol: Yup, it's the most adorable thing. We have a mountain of soft toys behind...

We get Barkbox every month for our goldendoodle, Molly. She absolutely adores her toys, so I don't feel like it's a waste. When it is time for bed, she will pick up 2-3 toys in her mouth, bring them up to our room, and put them down next to her dog bed. Anyone else's dog do that? https://lh3.googleu...

A better argument is that there isn't enough talent in the NFL to support a 12 team league, draft order really becomes important the more teams you add. I'm in a 14 team league. It's fun.

If you hold a cup closer to a faucet, does it fill faster? Less distance traveled would imply a speedier transaction. But the water is distributed at a constant speed. Yes.

Voting exclusively by party lines isn’t a choice we all made. It’s something we’ve been forced into because Congress is broken. Well said. We are in a totally fcked two-party system.
