Today, the love-it-or-hate-it Super Mario Bros. movie turns 25. I plan to watch it again tonight (esp. since I own a copy). I hated it in a befuddled confusion when it was new, but have come to like it the same way you might your ugly dog that keeps walking into the wall.

+ YouTube Video

The SMB film has moments where it's not half terrible (and plenty of moments where it's straight up garbage). Somehow, yes, they balance out. I privately suspect alcohol may enhance viewing tolerance levels.

Best scene will forever be when Mario pulls out a bob omb when fighting Koopa. Crowd totally loses its shit and Koopa drops a brick into his pants. Priceless.

^That's funny because when I was thinking about it, one of the things I was looking forward to was the bob omb scene.



I'm watching it now and on the streets, there's also signs for "twomp" and "Bullet Bill's." But it's so weird since nothing matches. I guess actually setting it in the mushroom kingdom would be too expensive, but I don't know, the sets are still pretty complex. Seems like it wouldn't have been much harder to film it in meadows and construct some giant mushrooms to jump on.



I also forgot that Toad is played by Mojo Nixon (he even says "the king is everywhere") or possibly I didn't know who he was the last time I saw this.

1) Had a very suspicious E-mail from Epic Games when I got home, letting me know my account was ready to use and all they needed was to verify my E-mail address via account login. Just to cover my bases, I asked both my dad and stepdad about their recent gaming activities, both gave negative replies, so I did the obvious thing and marked-as-spam and then deleted the clear attempt at phishing. Since I didn't provide any login data, the only thing the assholes who sent it have on me is an E-mail address, so I'm fairly in the clear.

2) Fucking Bungo. Faction Rallies in Destiny 2 have long been despised, but now they're basically abhorred. You can only pledge to a single faction during the rally now. Not just per character, but PER ACCOUNT. Once you sign the pledge you need not even bother playing with another toon, because there won't be any fucking point. I myself am extra-pissed off because somehow I suddenly don't have my Dead Orbit helmet for my Hunter, even though I know I fucking had one before. There's pretty much zero chance I would have deleted it, aside from a one-in-a-billion chance it was by accident, so now I have to hope the RNG blesses me again, because it took fucking forever to get it the first time. Goddamn it.

"We want your faction choice to have deeper meaning," said Bungo. Yeah fucking right, said the entire goddamn community. Forcing players to only use one faction per account per month is a fucking disaster.

Massive added "shields" to The Division this week, new patches to unlock based on story progression, elite enemy kills, dangerous areas cleared, etc. Completing them unlocks rewards in The Division 2, but if the datamining is at all true, I won't be unlocking very many of them. Even if I do manage more than a handful, going by the rewards (broken into tiers based on how many shields unlocked), I don't even care for most of the unlocks: one shield gets you a weapon skin, four get you a jacket and a sleeve patch, and then the next backpack skin and various emotes.

Granted, audio logs are also unlocked, and those I would like to get and listen to. Doing so of these shields (like killing the weekly high-value targets) will require either some finagling on my part (e.g., I use a ballistic shield to stay alive) or a teammate.
