Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection
A good collection of some of my least-favorite Mega Man games. Currently replaying ZX. Achievements: 24 / 37 (65%)

Updated about 3 weeks ago

☆☆★★★ Normally I list each game in a collection separately, but I already own all six collected games on their original platforms, and the Achievements cover all the main games as well as the bonus mode.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD
Is it supposed to take 4 hours to get to the Forest Temple? I feel extraordinarily bad at this game for some reason.

Sorry for the slow response. I've been meaning to write back to you. Hope you're doing well, lately!

Thanks. I also appreciate seeing others descriptions on games they're playing, so I try to keep up with them too. The banner is from a PC game called Broken Reality. It's one of my favorite games! It's a surreal exploration game that's also a satire of the internet. Think vaporwave in video game form; it's so good.

Definitely let me know if you ever continue work on OH JOES!, or start any other projects. I'd be happy to even be a tester for you, if you want.

Never heard of it, but I seem to have found their page. I see MaGMML1 alone has 30 levels. That's quite expansive for one Mega Man game... I might just have to add that to my backlog. Is it a compilation of levels all made by different people? Wow, that's a really cool idea for a contest. I'm keeping an eye on this stuff for sure.

Also, holy shit, the 48 hour game consists of 100+ levels. I hope development is going smoothly enough. Are these all played using only the buster, and does each level contain a robot master? I'm curious about how it all plays out.

Thanks for sharing your final thoughts on Day of the Tentacle. It's kinda reassuring to know my first impressions of the game weren't biased or caused by not having experienced Maniac Mansion before. In fact, I never expected to hear having played Maniac Mansion ends up making things even more confusing instead.

That is probably the first opinion I have seen on Day of the Tentacle that wasn't overwhelming praise. Thank you.

I rather like the game, but I can totally see why others would not. There's a sorta 90's cynicism to the art style that I'm okay with in small doses but just sort of irritates me after a while, if that makes sense.

You're not bad at Twilight Princess, the early game is just quite a bit slower than other Zeldas. It will start to pick up rapidly very soon!

Hey, there, and thanks for the add! I'll go ahead and give you an add back. I've seen you around a lot around here, and on MotherKojiro's page. I'm actually familiar with one of your works. I thought 'OH JOES!' was an excellent Mega Man fan game, and probably one of the better ones I've played. I still have to get back to it at some point, so I can find all the little secrets, hehe. Hope you're having a good weekend!

No argument here; I loved Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid, and the premise of that is there is a virus with 2 strains; when someone with one strain brings someone with the other to a full, screaming climax, she turns into a weapon, and yes, of course, only women can get this virus. It's like Barkley: Shut-up and Jam Gaiden with titties instead of basketballs, and it's so fucking over-the-top that by about halfway through the second episode, it doesn't even track as sexual anymore. That kind of thing is fine. Legend of Heroes is the sort of thing that sells itself on story and characters; that is a VERY bad place to put the kind of fanfiction that belongs on BangBros. or whatever those sites are that pop up in the ads on pages where I'm looking at something like [Link] Yeah, that's much better. But you know the ones: the stepmom scenarios that are like GIFs that have about 2 frames of animation? Anyway, like you said, there's something insidious about putting it there, and that's to say nothing of how forcing two people into a relationship they don't want causes all sorts of problems; that relationship is fucked from the start.

Reflecting further on your essay, inclusion is another huge problem, and one that I've had with media for as long as I can remember. Inclusion is not just having a queer character; what we should be striving to achieve is having queer characters show up like it's a Tuesday; no big deal. Being queer is not a personality trait. Being queer is not the single purpose for one's existence. I do not want to hear someone give The Speech™. The one about how they've just come out, and THANK GOD I CAN BE WHO I AM. It isn't who you are; it's what you are. Being queer isn't some all-important thing that we need to spend a lot of time on; making it a spectacle just gives the bigots more ammo. Yes, discrimination and violence against us in a society that still hates us more than people realize is a thing that shapes our experience and our personality; that's people being shitty to us and not who we have sex with. I know we have to tip those scales back before we can balance them, but we have to be careful about how.

But yes, essays, rants, raves, diatribes, and even the occasional jeremiad are always welcome.
No matter where you go, there you are.
