prnnography:

Some sketches and WIPs I forgot to throw up here.

Also, Shield Knight and Shovel Knight are now my favorite vidya couple. Sorry, robot husbands.

So I just beat Shovel Knight

Favorite game of 2014 so far. Full stop.

It’s a retro-style indie game that actually get it right! There’s so many indie games with an 8-bit graphical style, but Shovel Knight actually has the FEEL of a game from the NES era without the artificial difficulty that games made during that time had (having a certain number of lives, for example). The level design was really good and offered a lot of variety. I also think the whole idea of the Shovel Blade is really quite creative. And oh man, the soundtrack! So awesome!

OK, there are a few minor things that rubbed me the wrong way. The controls were a little hard for me to get used to at first, and the upgrades were a little lackluster (although that might just be personal preference talking; I stuck with one armor upgrade for the latter half of the game and never used the other ones, I also never used the charge slash). I’d also say the story was lacking, but that’s how old games did it, so moot point there.

So yeah, great game.

If you play Pokemon X and Y and you are intending on getting a shiny Gengar from the Gengar event at GameStop, PLEASE READ THIS POST!
I went to GameStop today intending to get my free shiny Gengar (as all of the posters said, free. FREE as in NO PURCHASE NECESSARY) and the employee behind the counter told the customer in front of me that they could only get a card for a shiny Gengar if they pre-ordered Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire. That sounded like really shady bullshit to me, so I got out of line, eyed the poster, saw absolutely nothing about pre-ordering being necessary, said “bullshit,” and left. Later, I googled the event and found an entire reddit thread of people who had the same experience. On this thread, I discovered that GameStop said on its own Facebook page that there is no purchase necessary, and that evidently, some stores have been told to tell customers they had to pre-order. Surprise surprise, GameStop has shitty business practices. Someone on the thread eventually found a store with a manager that insisted that they were supposed to be free and that the other stores were scamming customers.

If this happens to you, DO NOT pay for anything. GameStop is a terrible business as we all know and they do not need your pre-order money. Show them the poster IN THEIR OWN STORE that says “no purchase necessary,” or if it doesn’t, pull up this picture on GameStop’s Facebook page in which it says no purchase necessary on the poster.
I reported this store to Nintendo’s customer service, and they were totally on my side. They said that there is absolutely no purchase or pre-order necessary, they took the store’s information, and took my information in case they need to verify anything more with me. She said that if I know of any other stores that are doing this to report them as well. They even took my serial number just in case they can get me a code directly. Nintendo customer service 10/10. GameStop 0/10.
Here’s Nintendo’s number in case the same thing happens to you: 1-800-255-3700. I don’t recommend calling GameStop, because you never know whether they’re going to be unbiased about it. Nintendo, on the other hand, wants people’s free Pokemon to be free.
Please tell other people about this so they don’t get scammed. Goddamn I hate GameStop.

Yup, Homestuck updated all right.
For any non-Homestucks out there, this sort of thing happens every time Homestuck updates because of (I&#8217;m assuming) the enormous amount of server traffic coming to MSPA.
Yeah, it&#8217;s a pretty big fandom.

wtf the fuck at all of these posts i’m seeing on my dash defending outright emotional manipulation and abuse in friendships/relationships in general.

if you are at a point in your relationship with someone where:

  • they are openly (however passive aggressively) jealous about you spending time with people who aren’t them
  • they demand your attention above everyone else’s, or above other things you have going on in your life
  • they force you to fulfil a quota of communication with them every day, like communication with them is something you owe them instead of something that should come naturally for both of you
  • you have to walk on eggshells around them to avoid making them angry at you
  • they refuse to apologise for treating you badly becuase they ‘can’t help’ it
  • you feel guilty doing things that aren’t talking to them in case it upsets them
  • if you are generally interacting them out of a perceived obligation or fear of upsetting them rather than a genuine desire to speak to them
  • A MULTITUDE of really unhealthy shit

that is not healthy. that is not a sign of a healthy friendship. stop defending this shit. 

I watched “The Book of Life” in Latin American Spanish. Twice.

colorcinabrio:

Here my words.

Go watch it for yourselves.

That is all that I have to write.

I want to watch it again.

Now, I am going to wait for all the languages versions.

Plus, I need to solve the mystery about if the movie is going to be in Japan or not.

Personal reminder to go see this movie either by myself or with my friend.
