Today happens to be my first (and maybe more) full year Azurilversary (would've said Marrilversary but what can you do), so I figure it would be fitting to create an AMA thread for the forum since I've made it this far. I do have some rules for this thread and they are:
Standard AMA rules apply
Please avoid questions relating to IRL politics.
Please limit your questions to no more than 10 per post. I'd be surprised if I got that many at once but this is just to give other posters a chance.
And with that, you may ask away and hopefully I'll be able to answer your questions. :o
Hey Tap, I has a few questions for this fine AMA...
Have you ever watched a game at Lambeau Field, or at least been to it?
If you live outside of Wisconsin, do you live in an area where the Packers are hated?
Out of all of the different Mega Man series, which is your favorite?
Have you ever watched Roahm Mythril's Battle Network LPs or his Mega Man Perfect Runs? If so, thoughts?
Do you watch sports besides football? Favorite teams?
...and lastly, are you up all night to get lucky?
I've been to Lambeau Field at least 5 times; twice for a draft party and the others just as a road trip/vacation thing, so basically I've not actual attended a game live.
Back in high school, I think there were more Bear fans than Packer fans. Now I'm an adult, it's closer to even if not more.
That's a tough one because most are series I play but I'd have to give the nod to Battle Network.
RoahmMythril was probably one of the first LPers I watched on YT but I have watched most of his BN & Perfect Runs. I could bring up the obvious on the limits of series that he does but hey, that's a matter of preference so to each's own.
I think you know college football with the Badgers is one, along with Badger basketball. Baseball I sometimes will watch, I've been split between the Brewers and Cubs during my life for different reasons. NBA I almost never watch with the state it's been in but I pull for the Spurs because they do things right, regardless of what the league 'says'. NHL I rarely watch but sometimes I'll tune into the playoffs, don't really have a pro team (for a state that has the Frozen Tundra and Badger hockey).
3. Out of the Lions, Bears, and Vikings, how would you rank them in terms of hatred or at least dislike? For example; I might do Saints(reason)>Falcons(reason)>Bucs(reason).
4. What is your favorite Pokemon generation?
5. Can I have an honest opinion of me?
Sadly not as much as I used to as a kid. Summer weather doesn't do it for me.
He is Emizel from Disgaea 4, a tactics turn-based RPG of sorts for PS3.
If that question was asked maybe a year or two ago, it would easier but not so much now considering the changes with each team regarding either coaches, players, or management. I'm probably going too far into this so...Bears (they hold the all-time record head-to-head barely) #1 > Vikings close#2 (a thorn in our side from the Favre thing) > Lions #3 (would've been up top with the coach and dirty players they had the past couple years but not anymore).
Since the early years of Pokemon, Johto region has been at the top for me but in recent months Unova has grown on me...but I still say Johto.
Being both part of TSI and Sylph, you are a sweet and helpful individual. (This is quite the spot to be in o.o) Post note: My formatting got screwed up...oh well. :/
If you weren't a Packers fan, which team would you support?
Will the Packers win another Super Bowl in the near future?
Favorite Kirby game?
To make this a fair list, I will only include one from my team and the rest being elsewhere.
Aaron Rodgers with the Packers because he holds the team together
Larry Fitzgerald with the Cardinals for being one hell of a receiver and cool guy
Rob Gronkowski from the Patriots for being a colorful goofball on and off the field that I like (from a team I'm not fond of)
JJ Watt from the Texans being not just from UWisconsin but a beast in general.
Derek Carr with the Raiders as I wish to see him succeed where his brother David...sadly didn't.
Same applies for the previous top. This is a very difficult list to make as I unfortunately can't include players like Barry Sanders and Walter Payton, as I barely remember seeing them as a kid, along with others I'm not thinking of.
Brett Favre with the Packers had some moments of all kinds during his playtime there. The departure was not pleasant but it did eventually end better as years went by.
Brian Urlacher with the Bears for being a tough and intimidating NFC North rival with character that I respect. (2006 overrated my ass)
Ladainian Tomlinson with the Chargers/Jets was a class act that I enjoyed watching when I could. It's a shame his departure with the Chargers didn't end well (I'm looking at you AJ Smith and Phillip Rivers :l ).
Michael Strahan with the NY Giants for being entertaining to listen to when mic'd up or just around in general.
Jerome Bettis with the Steelers for being...he's a teddy bear man. c:
Considering my family grew up mostly as Packer fans, I doubt it would be an NFC North rival. I have had cases of going with the Steelers as a teen so...I guess I'll say them.
No. There's been talk from Rodgers that he's, and I quote, "On the back nine of his career, but is just starting the back nine". Rodgers can only do so much and as long as they've got a head coach in McCarthy trying to make us believe that he's got faith that Defense Coordinator (Dom Capers) will bounce back like Mason Crosby (Kicker) did years ago. You can't put a DC and Kicker on the same level! Kickers kick-off, kick FGs and kick extra points......at times. DCs command an entire defensive scheme (with assistance from separate coordinators in different fields) and he's never on the field sideline to motivate...at all! Unless he proves me wrong, I don't expect it to happen with what's left in the Rodgers era.
This is a little tough as I want to say Super Star for SNES/Ultra DS for how much time I've invested into it in my life over the years but slowly Triple Deluxe has gotten up there. The worlds and locations just feel more Kirby to me and I enjoy (while being frustrated at some things in the game, screw you Pyribbit). I haven't played Return to Dreamland yet and haven't finished the main game of Planet Robobot but right now I'll say Triple Deluxe, despite not being done with Dedede Tour just yet.
2. If you had the opportunity to be transported to any fantasy of your liking, which would you choose?
3. What is your favourite Rock-type Pokémon?
4. Is there any country you would like to visit?
5. What would you rather fight: one horse-sized duck, or 100 duck-sized horses?
After sampling a number of flavors at the nearby confectionery place downtown, I eventually came to the conclusion that Banana Cream Pie is my favorite...despite only having it once in ice cream form.
In regards to a fantasy world, the world of Dream Land is one that I find pretty peaceful but crazy as well, maybe dark if you include matter or nightmares.
Even though there was the addition of Lycanroc with Gen VII, I have to go with the little guy that tries...Dwebble.
I had a thing in the past month going over things that I would hope to do as a bucket list, one being touring/visiting countries in Europe. Of them, I would say Italy would be the main pick due to being part Italian (German being the other) based on family history with parents sides. I'm not familiar with what it is like outside of the US but I think Italy would appeal to me most.
A horse-sized duck. As cute as having a bunch of little ponies would be, I would be overwhelmed on top of being claustrophobic in tight areas or groups. A horse-sized duck though...not only would I not mind it but also hearing some swag quacks and being put on my ass losing. I never said I had to win.

Where did your usertitle "Mr. Happening" come from?
Favorite new Pokémon introduced in Gen VII?
What's the next notable game release you're particularly awaiting?
This is more something I came up with due to being a past viewer of a Twitch group by the name of Team Poor Life Choices, as they do some things that aren't really in their own best interests like foods that aren't really that good, playing games that are really terrible or just weird stuff that happens that isn't the norm. I guess what I'm getting at is that some oddities have rubbed off onto me, hence the title.
There are some Pokemon that I love from this Gen but also some that I can't put as my favorite due to not having used them at any point (Litten line). Ultimately I would say Palossand/Sandygast. I don't care if it's another 'inanimate' Pokemon, this design is just endearing with the expression and having the shovel or just the grandness with the final form.
Probably Mega Man Legacy Collection 2, as that would be for PC. I won't rule out Monster Hunter XX port for Switch but that requires me to get one.
Ah, pardon me. My timing is as bad as you'd expect.
How would you rank the Kirby games you played?
The way I'd rank is as such; I'll have the first list be those that I've at least played half the game of and the other list being those I've touched but not very far into. Just to note, I haven't played Return to Dreamland or Star Allies yet.
Triple Deluxe - While the key gameplay is on whether or not you have become Hypernova Kirby through the Miracle Fruit, it is fun to use the endless vacuum that is Kirby for hilarious results. I like the locations and the abilites are solids, including the new abilities...most of them. Archer is OP, I love Beetle so much, Bell is cool, but Circus just...stinks.
Planet Robobot - Very good game in its own right, especially with the armor and the setting. This is slightly below TD due to bosses that I'm not the most impressed with and the ability set being weaker than TD; as I'm not really a fan of ESP like everyone else is, Poison is Water but probably not as good I hear, Doctor is fun but tough to use sometimes, and they brought back Circus. :l
Super Star Ultra - Despite not playing this anywhere near as much as the original, this one is much preffered.
Kirby 64: Crystal Shards - I love the ability combining and the music is great too. Graphics are a bit unusual though.
Dreamland 2 - A game I poured hours into and still enjoy, despite a couple of questionable key items needed for the true ending.
Super Star - Just as many memories with this game as some of the Game Boy titles mentioned here. The remake is better though.
Block Ball - Love the soundtrack to go with the breakout gameplay.
Dream Course - I never thought this kind of golf could be fun and or frustrating.
Dreamland - Pretty classic, even for a short game. Not much to say except, give Hard mode a chance I guess.
Dreamland 3 - It's been years since I last played this as a kid. Pretty cryptic at times but it has a style of its own.
Avalanche - A very strange game and with even weirder speech boxes and voices. Alright game I suppose.
Epic Yarn - Unbelievably charming to look and play. Warm and fuzzy feelings.
Kirby's Adventure (I grew up with NiDL) - There's a chance I did play this fully a year or two ago but I don't remember. Either way, I played NiDL before I got to this one.
Amazing Mirror - Didn't play much of this, as I wasn't sure of the controls and stuff. Probably will return eventually.
Canvas Curse - I had this game briefly before returning it to Gamestop. Unique gameplay, it's just that my life was in a weird place back then.
Who is your favorite unit to use in FEH?
It would be Felicia, probably because she's at a 5+9 merge. There's also her art I love.
What are you least favorite sports teams?
North Carolina Tar Heels - People in the chat hate Duke B-Ball. I myself can't stand UNC. A former Kansas coach (on the college board too) tries to get Wisconsin B-Ball coach fired in 2000 because 'you shouldn't play defense like that' despite his team doing the same years later and that's even mentioning the way players present themselves in games and the U being in the middle of an academic scandal and more. The former of which the NCAA is too gutless to act upon.
New England Patriots - Useless press conferences, multiple scandals beginning with the first Super Bowl win, the constant need to cry 'bulletin board material or humble pie' gets really old, players from other teams quitting to jump on the SB train if they can (looking at you Bennett). That should cover enough.
Baylor Bears - I wouldn't even have a problem with this U but...the legal issues and lack of regard for ethics is just sickening. I should leave it right there.
LA Clippers - A team that's had a hated owner in the past and offseason actions that raise the question of character or scream conflict of interest; Blake Griffin's battery charges, DeAndre Jordan and the league conspiring to screw over the Mavericks with the latter being in the red due to BS offseason rules, and Chris Paul's trade antics that should be against league rules but only when they feel like it. This spot should be reserved for the league office itself but...*shrug*.
New York Yankees - Highest playroll and it gets to the levels of absurd, with no chance of balance.
49ers - Even though they have Kyle as head coach still, this front office is beyond poor. Do you ever wonder why so many players retired early? They probably didn't want to play on a team which scapegoated Jim Harbaugh due to 'his antics getting old' (even if it's seeming more true every year in college now), multiple players of questionable character, and the firesale they pulled each year that would mirror the Marlins.
Miami Marlins - Do this organization care? I'd ask the fans but the stadium is half empty and probably because Jeter has played the same role as every other GM in the past decade and a half, which is having a firesale every other year. Oh and they pulled a 'accept our deal or we trade everyone' threat on Stanton. Yeah, I don't think they give a damn in the end.
Dallas Cowboys - I'm tired of Jerry Jones and the America's team deal. Tom Landry, come back.
Washington Capitals - Not a fan of the fanbase that is hostile, though more against Sid the Kid.
Chicago Bears - Being a Packer fan, I feel obligated to put them on the list. There's some good guys and all but that gets overshadowed by dumb head coaching, looking at you Marc Tressman.
