I want to play videogames, to watch movies, to eat, to drink, to listen to jazz and to pet the cat.

But I'm tired, the cat is tired, and we both are about to fall asleep where we sit.

I am using a piece of software that had its interface translated into Italian. Among the printing settings, I see two options (“strano” and “persino”) that translate back to English as “weird” and “surprisingly”. It took me a while to understand that it means “odd” and “even” pages

Pokémon: Glorioso Español is now officially a thing!

¡Pokémon: Glorioso Español ahora es oficial!

Sometimes you like a community a lot, they are a good resource and all.

But repeated encounters with their admin team teach they are not too different from other power-hungry admin teams in the past, that had the banhammer as the only tool to take criticism. and pick a bone with people who question that culture.

Worse, this is a Discord-only community.

Time to downgrade membership to "lurker", I guess. And invite their members to other places.

Today is Valentine's Day, which means I'm contractually allowed to crosspost my Nidoran Valentines' story.

Stay tuned.

Finally back from vacations but creative brain seems to not be fully armed and operational as of yet. Tried composing a scene and brain started punching itself on how to chain sentences together.

I don't even want to imagine how coder brain is doing.

It's still fucking ridiculous that Paul W.S. Anderson felt the need to make his Monster Hunter movie an isekai, because reasons. :blobglarenervous:

Spoilers: Pokémon Legends Arceus 

When your character still has anxiety after being Isekai'd into the wonderful world of (savage, red-eyed, interdimensional-empowered, Monster House-spawned) Pokémon!

(hey, at least they're still a human!)

I see reports that PLA (Pokémon Legends Arceus) freezes at startup and I guess those people rushed too much and didn't read the manual.

As for me, my PLA has been stuck for 10 minutes... at the starter choice screen. It's an incredibly difficult choice.

No matter what corporations tell you, there's one good thing about Totally Legit Means (/ the sidewalk store / the seven seas) that they can't and never will be able let alone willing to compare to.

All those videogames I wanted for Xmas? MHS2, MHGU, Y's IX, Pokémon Legends Arceus, etc.?

I can catch them all.

First Toot!

I make authentic NES graphics, sometimes NES games. This is for a game of mine under the codename "Borscht".

I have it on very good and reliable source that Monopoly Pacman is a very fun game to play with 3 friends and just about as good a friendship-smasher as... well, Smash :p

Very few things in the world are more uplifting for one's mood than picking up doot doot (aka "Hunting Horn") in GU / Rise and going into the internet to help random Low Ranks with their quests.

My only dismay is that Qurupeco didn't make it into to either game, which means no Peco doot doot.

(As a SA main, I can strongly recommend doot doot)

I get that "think of the children" is a factor but like... really. This is Pokémon. A stronger factor seems to be "protect yourself from the children" which to some point also makes sense, but doesn't everyone lie about their age on the internet anyway? On this internet identity for example, I'm 25.

It is sad how infectious and damaging corporate platforms like Discord are to fandom in general.

I'm a subforum mod in a community for a franchise dedicated to Pokémon — you, know, a franchise so geared for children that we former-children suffer from that aspect of it.

Recently the community took the decision to bar all underage users from the community. Ban all the children from engaging in a franchise for children.


Because they made Discord *mandatory*.

Waking up to the news that the mods of a forum want to help me get a series of rhymes published on their site. Nice, but also eeek, hoping not to disappoint.

While on my tour of old Atari ST software, I found an interesting UI concept I had not seen before. If you do something wrong in the Papyrus desktop publishing package, then it'll beep at you. But you need to hit ^? ("Why the beep") in order to show the corresponding error message.

I rather like this. It prevents the user being spammed by modal error dialogs, and the user can choose whether to read more about it. An interesting alternative to the now-common "Don't show this to me again" checkbox.

Late but hey,

A new entry has been published for the luminous legend that will sink the world.

**Luna of the Underworld**, featuring the Elder Dragon, Ceadeus.
