Safe Words 16 - Next-Gen Edition
« on: October 01, 2020, 10:27:51 AM »


Welcome prospective consumers to Safe Words 16: Next-Gen Edition!
We’re in the middle of a brand-new global recession, and you know what that means – it’s the ideal time to launch new consoles! But since the poor old gaming industry, which only dwarfs all other commercial forms of entertainment combined, could really use some cash right now… We’ve decided to not just gauge our userbase with Five Hundred Dollars luxury machines (accessories excluded), we’re also going to sell them brand-new games (at a mark-up of course).

Rigourous budget cuts have been applied to QA Departments across the board to rush these products to market, so let’s hope none of these electronic entertainment products will Bomb at retail…!

Remaining words:
-   Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla
-   Bugsnax
-   Demon’s Souls Remake
-   Destruction AllStars
-   Dirt 5
-   Gears Tactics
-   Godfall
-   Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
-   The Medium
-   Sackboy: A Big Adventure
-   Tetris Effect: Connected
-   Yakuza: Like A Dragon

Play order:
-   Stratos
-   Tophatant123
-   Luigi Dude
-   MASB
-   Lolmonade
-   NWR_Insanolord
-   Nickmitch
-   Khushrenada
-   Mop It Up
-   Pokepal148
-   BeautifulShy
-   Mr. Bungle

Final ranking
12th. Mop It Up - 47 points (1 game played)
11th. Luigi Dude - 50 points (1 game played)
10th. Lolmonade - 54 points (1 game played)
09th. Nickmitch - 58 points (1 game played)
08th. Khushrenada - 62 points (1 game played)
07th. NWR_Insanolord - 66 points (1 game played)
Host. Steefosaurus - 70 points (0 games played, 1 hosted)
06th. Stratos - 71 points (1 game played)
05th. Pokepal148 - 76 points (1 game played)
04th. BeautifulShy - 81 points (1 game played)
03rd. Mr. Bungle - 87 points (1 game played)
02nd. TOPHATANT123 - 93 points (1 game played)

The Rules
« Reply #1 on: October 01, 2020, 10:28:58 AM »
The rules: There’s a list of 12 games supposedly launching day & date with the next-gen consoles. This number is equal to the amount of players.
Players take turns in picking one of these game titles from the list. If they pick a Safe Word, that player secures a spot in the next round. If they pick the Bomb Word, that player is eliminated from the game. Once a title has Bombed it is eliminated from the pool.
Which of the game titles is the Bomb Word will be decided by whoever would be next up to pick a title. [EDIT: Last player in rotation gets to decide going forward, see here.] For the first round, the Bomb Word is decided by the player who is last in play rotation.

Turn order: The initial order has been decided by assigning players a number and throwing these in a random number generator.

Time limit: I’ll give players a generous 48 hours to decide which word to pick. Time limits are counted as of the timestamp on my last post.

Reminders: Players are encouraged to keep an eye on the thread to see when they’re up to choose. I will try to send reminders (per Forum PM) if 24 hours have elapsed without a choice occurring. If you prefer to be notified on Discord instead, let me know. If you need a time extension, let me know.

EDIT: Rules have been edited once to rectify a mistake caused by my wording. I apologise.

Few things are as safe a multi-billion Dollar franchise! In Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales our hero fights against the Tinkerer who has been supplying super villains with gadgets ever since his introduction back in 1963. Looks like Sony will be delivering this gadget on time too, as Stratos moves on to round 2!

I need something that's going to challenge me.  Well since we all know the original Demon's Souls invented hard videogames, I'll have to go with the Demon's Souls Remake.

It's the Dark Souls of Next-Gen. 8)

Because we all have our eyes on much better next gen offerings like Balan's Wonderworld or GTA 5.

I honestly don't like that I am second to last or last in the first round. I am just hoping someone in front of me isn't safe.
Maxi is dead. I killed him and took his posts and changed genders.
Alexis, she/her/Miss

I'm happy with thinking pokepal148 is just eating a stick of butter. It seems about right for him. I don't need no stinking facts.

I think you're in a good spot. I'd rather be there. I'll be amazed if the first round were to go the distance. I actually think that nickmitch, myself and Mop it up are in the danger zone for the first round. If one us does pick the bomb word then you should be about the position Insanolord is right now in this round. Of course, if Insanolord or nickmitch were to pick the bomb word then I like my odds for the next round.

It ain't a new generation without some pretty car pictures! Insanolord follows the safety car onto the grid, qualified and ready, with eyes on the prize.

The choice might be Medium, but the pay-off is Large. Nickmitch sneaks to safety in two realities at once!

Will Khushrenada shake things up next?
