It's probably a little late for this, but I'm issuing a huge arachnophobia warning to interested parties who either haven't played yet or haven't gotten very far. There's a portion of an area called Deepnest where spiders endlessly crawl across the foreground (one type of enemy even emerges from the foreground before attacking), and egg sacs on the ground will explode into countless children when you pass them.
It's worse than a nightmare.
When the game first came out on Steam, I initially skipped it because I figured a bug-centric game would have at least one notable spider. At a certain point, though, after looking at the main character enough, I came to the conclusion that the spiders in this game would be way too stylized to be frightening, and enthusiastically waited for the Switch version. Some of them are indeed too stylized to be frightening, but not all of them.
In Resident Evil, thanks to the room-based structure and the slow combat, it's mostly possible to shut your eyes while occasionally opening the map to check where you are. In Donkey Kong Country 2, since the spider is a player character, you can squint and try to focus your gaze on the edges of the screen (maybe even tape a piece of paper on the center of your TV if you feel confident enough). I have not been able to devise any similar trick for Hollow Knight.
Pure Miriam: I always have ideas for new threads, but i think few people would post on them, for some reason.

Pure Miriam: By the way, general elections on my country today (Brazil). I know this isn't a political forum, but the first place in election polls is a mysoginist, fascist, racist, homophobic stupid pro-dictactorship man...And i'm afraid he can really win

Pure Miriam: (Sorry if there are other brazilians here who support that thug, it is just the truth)

Yän: Ugh, not another one of those. Wishing you guys good luck and smart voters, Pure Miriam. Go vote, everyone!

Pure Miriam: Yeah, thank you Yän. Brazil elections are in two rounds if no candidate achieves 50%+1 vote at the first round. I'm hoping at least we get to second round in president elections so we can try to stop that moron...

Yän: I just looked up more about him and... damn. He sure is one of the worst I've seen yet. Now I'm REALLY wishing you luck, cause if he wins Brazil is gonna have to prepare for some dark, dark times.

Pure Miriam: Yes. It is frightening. We are already on a difficult situation and things can get much worse. I hope we don't get into such a dark future..

Pure Miriam: Well, going to vote. Wish me (and us) luck.

Scuttlest: Eh, take Smash rumors with a grain of salt. Smash rumors just seem to get increasingly random as time goes on.

purifyweirdshard: I hardly take them at all, actually, I just mentioned it in case Mike hadn't heard. I'm already getting it after the Simon/Richter stuff so I haven't been following.

Autumn: Gosh, of all the corporate collaborations that could happen, Netflix and the American Red Cross wasn't one I would have ever expected. It almost makes me wish I lived around Los Angeles.
