     Global announcement:
    We're all a little older than we were when we got here! Celebrate the new Morban quinquennium with us as we pat ourselves on the back!
    :toot: HAPPY FIFTH ANNIVERSARY! :toot:

    Yes, it's been a whole five years since our humble beginnings! What began as a social group for people who were too rambunctious to be contained in Bulbagarden's Fun & Games section, soon evolved into an entire forum split off from the Bulbagarden site, with a little unexpected, unintentional assistance from the staff there.

    Over the years we've had a few

    Learn about the general regulations of the forum.
    Nothing in the new rules should be surprising. They've just been made easier to read and understand. Still, take the time to review them carefully!

    There are four basic rules, each followed by a few examples of how they could be applied.

    1. Be decent.
      - Treat others with respect.
      - Respect others' opinions if they do not cause harm.
      - Respect others' requests. (For example, drop a subject if someone is uncomfortable.)

    Pop quiz! What do a ninja, a shonen protagonist, and noodles have in common? If your answer is "nothing" then, well, you're surprisingly wrong. If your answer is "ninjas can be shonen protagonists and eat noodles" then you're technically right but that wasn't the answer I'm looking for. If your answer is "they're all represented as playable characters in Nintendo's new game ARMS" then you're correct!

    So! As usual, I'm Lief Katano, and that was your greetings for today! In case you couldn't tell from the title or the question I proposed at the beginning, today's Nintendo Direct...

    I was driving to Home Depot from Robotics Club about 40 minutes ago, it's dark enough that you can't see much beyond your headlights but there's still a little ambient light. I was sitting on the right lane of a 4 lane highway at a red light, first in line. Beside me, three cars. The light changed and the cars in the left lane accelerated away while I slowly worked through first and second gears. By the time I shifted into third and was doing about 30 mph in a 45 zone, we had gone about 800 feet or so and reaching the next intersection, an unlit one that had residential streets connecting at a...

    Greetings, internet! As per usual, I'm Lief Katano, here bringing you the latest information about Nintendo video games! Notably enough, this is our first Direct on Nintendo Switch games - namely, Splatoon 2, sequel to Wii U shooter superstar Splatoon, and ARMS, a fighting game tuned specifically so as to utilize the Joy Cons. It's also the first Direct that has games I am completely incapable of playing, as I am incapable of getting a Nintendo Switch. Yes, I'm still salty.

    Direct time! Yoshiaki Koizumi is our guide for this Direct. First we're starting with 3DS titles, surprisingly...

    Behold the power of my stand!
    What are stands?


    From JoJo's wiki:
    Stands are defined as personifications of "life energy" whose abilities are given visual form. When first presented, the kana スタンド (Sutando/Stand) in a furigana format is written above the kanji 幽波紋 (Yūhamon),

    I'm pretty damn sure I've missed a lot of happenings here on TPPS, and I'm not sure I wanna spend DAYS trying to catch up on it all. :B

    Also, how is everyone? Has your year gone well so far? :o Gimme all the details you feel like spilling!

    You are required to listen to this as you read, thank you.

    You might have noticed my theme has gone unchanged in such a long time!

    Well its not because of schedule slip...well directly anyway. I was planning to do this a while ago but hey, my procrastination made this better. Made what better?

    BEHOLD!

    I've got a lot of humble bundles...

    alot.
    of.
    humble.
    bundles.

    To the point that I now have over 100 games to finish...

    I went to the pet store today to get some more filters and some snails for my sister's Betta tank. While I was there I took my time browsing the animals and saw a cat up for adoption that particularly pulled on my heart. Knowing full well I don't have the room or desire for the expense of owning a cat, I turned to the reptile department. Owning a pet snake has been on my mind for a while recently and just watching the animals really started tugging on that idea.

    My local PetSmart offers California King snakes and Corn snakes, both being among the most commonly kept snakes. They seem...

    Wow, I actually did it again. Total silence for no reason, and this time it was what, like three months? Shit. Let me tell you guys what's going on in my life.

    I got a job, which sucks up a huge amount of my time, but for the first time in my life I have money that's not my mom's, so now I don't feel guilty about buying video games. Well... never mind.

    My depression is getting worse. "Tell us something we don't know, Jack." Whatever.

    I was evicted from my house, the house that was my dad's since 2001, the house that I basically grew up in. I'm living at...

    I'm Aro/Ace. No point in betting around the bust, I'm Asexual and Aromatic. That means that I'm never going to be attacked to anyone regardless of Gender. If you've visited My Tumblr then you know this, but I'd thought I;d make it official.

    I've know for a while that I was Ace, I've never really wanted sex, never wanted to "bang" a Guy(or a girl) When the people on Movies were shown wanting to cheat I was just like "Don't?". There isn't any need for pity. It's just like the idea that sex is a food, ad I don't have the craving. 

    Aro has been a bit harder to put down. Part of...

    Traffic conditions this morning weren't very good, though it's pretty decent right now actually. A couple of piles at the intersections that are getting run over and could damage cars lower to the road. To a vehicle with plenty of ground clearance and reasonable speed, it's no big deal.

    This morning was a little hairy, I felt like I was spinning a good bit the whole way, which I expected with the tires I had on the back and my lighter ballast load than last year. I just kept her nice and slow at 25 to 30 mph, gently applying throttle, shifting earlier than normally to keep the torque...

    My tax return should be coming soon, and with it, I was thinking of splurging on myself a bit...

    I thought about maybe getting a PS4 finally, but given that it's still like, what, $250 to $300 currently, that doesn't leave much... Heck, I'd probably need to spend around $400 or more total just to have something to go with it (a game or two, plus PS+ membership)...

    So what I was thinking instead was maybe building up my 3DS library with a couple games. I've been thinking about getting Ocarina of Time 3D, and maybe Majora's Mask if I like OoT, so there's that. I'm also getting...

    Greetings, all! As per usual, I'm Lief Katano. Surprisingly enough, we got another Nintendo Direct today - this time, for the Fire Emblem series! The main topic will be Fire Emblem Warriors, a Nintendo Switch game revealed at the presentation not-too-long ago. However, there are hints going around that the long-rumored Fire Emblem mobile game will also be detailed today. Namely that it's the Fire Emblem Direct, not the Fire Emblem Warriors Direct. I think that's a pretty good hint, myself.

    I also saw a rumor when I was checking to see what time it was that Revelation was going...

    Greetings, Internet! As per usual, I'm Lief Katano. Though I guess "per usual" is a bit of an understatement...overstatement? Whatever, point is - it's been a long time since a proper Nintendo Direct. Like...March. Seriously. At least I hope that there hasn't been one since March, otherwise I would've missed it and feel embarrassed. But enough about my problems! We're having the first Direct in almost a year for a very important reason - we're getting even more information about the Nintendo Switch! Formerly known under the codename of the "NX", this console is capable of being played both...

    You thought it would be about Vanguard didn't you?
    Now you many be thinking, Where's Mey? Where's Greece? WELL WE'RE HERE JUST THE INTERNET ISN'T.

    Also Data is low. 

    Now our Wi Fi likes to go in and out. but sometimes it goes Out out and it doesn't come back after being unplugged and plugged back in.  I am currently online, butttttttt I'm hooked into the Ethernet with my Laptop and it isn't an ideal set up. First we thought it was the router, but we bought a new on and it works with my laptop. Buuuuuuuuuuut not with the old desktop that we use to talk to router doesn't work. soooo we need a new computer to talk to stuff. I...

    Er… hey guys. *waves awkwardly*

    Laptop is still not fixed, unfortunately. Apparently, not only do I need a new hard drive but I also need software to get the original OS, which was Windows 7, and that is really expensive for two people who only get $1200+ a month all together. All of the money goes to food.

    I am also currently sick with a nasty cold. XP Which why I'm awake and posting this at a really weird time in the morning.

    (A bit of brighter news: I have Pokémon Sun in my possession, and I've pretty much completed it. THIS GAME IS AMAZING.)

    I've...

    For a while now, I've been debating this. I feel like I'm spending waaaaaaaaaaay too much time on the internet/playing video games lately...up to the point where I feel like it's becoming an addiction.

    So, starting January 1st, as a New Year's Resolution, I've decided to go cold turkey, meaning no internet, no video games, no Youtube, no nothing.

    How long will I stay offline? Mystery

    I know I'm going to miss coming online here, and also all the video game time I'll be missing, but it's...

    Ugh...I may or may not be more tempted to get the Ultimate God Pack DLC, which unlocks all the gods (both current, and all future ones), for SMITE now...

    I have quite a few gods unlocked right now, but I've also been playing ones I don't play as often and trying to unlock more...which is expensive Favor-wise... Favor is the in game currency that you get for playing, but it takes awhile to earn enough to just unlock one god.

    You can also use Gems, which is the cash grab of SMITE, but you can also earn Gems by other methods, like logging in consecutively...

    Bunnies discusses where she's gonna be in a few months.
    So, I've kinda been holding out on you all for at least half a year now.

    There's been a reason why I didn't jump at the opportunity to join Dichotomy, and I'll admit that the limited posts I made about it were not 100% truthful.

    Basically, I knew that I likely wouldn't be around the Pit Stop for a very long time soon, and I didn't want to slow things down for everyone.
    I also didn't want to mention this much, because I didn't want everyone to be worried or anything, or be...

    Decisions, Decisions
    Hey guys I've been thinking bout somethings and I'd thought Typing them out would help clear my head. You guys can comment if you want to.

    Anyway I've been spinning my wheels for a while now I haven't gone a semester in collage without changing my major because of that I haven't been making progress towards graduating. Now I'm not in a rush to get out of school, but that student loan sure is piling up. I can't seem to make up my mind on what I want to learn, or what I want to do. I'm going to change my major again so I think I've found three things I want to consider. 

    First...
