  • So I've got only until Saturday until I'm out of the house.

    I'm excited, nervous, sad all at the same time.
    So competitive Smash is imploding
    I completely forgot how good Greek Yogurt was. That stuff goes with everything.

    It's one of the best emulsifiers for Mac n Cheese, better than regular yogurt or milk like in the ingredients.

    I can't go back to regular yogurt after eating greek yogurt.

    Thanks to my mom for eating it before it became super popular though, because she said greek yogurt was more like "fromage blanc" back at her home I believe.
    To be honest, enabling Star and Screen KOs on all stages makes me far more giddy than the anticipated content tomorrow.

    Yes I have enabled those via mods. I also changed the max launch speed (if exceeded, turns upper blast line KOs to boring blast KOs) to make it ridiculously high, so it's pretty much 1/3 chance you'll get star ko'd.

    Game's so much more fun like this. Why did they change it to begin with since Smash 4?
    A baby blue jay appeared by my doorstep on my first full day at my new home. I couldn't find your ask thread for some reason, do you have Blue Jays in your area? I seem to have a whole family in my backyard :3


    Should I set up a birdfeeder?

    Our ask thread is "You don't believe me? Go ask the twins mofo." on the ask board. And no, we don't have Blue Jays in our area. We have the flat-headed California Scrub Jays instead which are commonly misattributed as Blue Jays, and they're cuties!

    Such a cutie. Hope it's fine, and not helpless there. Yes you definitely set up a bird feeder! You'll attract all sorts of birbs!

    I hope so too. I decided not to disturb it, when I went to see if it was still there in the evening it was gone. I'm hoping its parents nudged/guided it somewhere safe
    I find it weird to enjoy a game where you don't really care for the main protagonist or you're just "yeah he's cool" ambivalent, and you like other characters. My favorite characters from series frequently to be main protags (Mario, Kirby, Rayman, Link, Asterix, Cuphead, Fox/Falco tossup) if I say so myself.

    Of course it's not a universal rule but if I don't like the main protagonist (Yoshi, Wario, Donkey Kong, Crash), I don't think I can stick for long playing.

    Though in Shadow of Colossus, Agro the horse is my favorite character.

    Well games that choose your main character, I tend to be a bit more diverse there. It's the best way of having the main character be a vessel for you. Why Link doesn't have customization or even a gender option is baffling, and it's on top of Legend of Zelda usually being the franchise when you see women playing Nintendo games.
    Have you read any children's stories on birds (doesn't have to be when you're a child)?

    One story I recalled was "The tale of Tommy Nobody", which I don't remember fully but it's basically about a bird who was left behind by his family (because he didn't fly well) but when asked what bird he is, he didn't know. His search for his identity led him to encounter a few other birds and compare himself to them. In the end, a similar bird had informed Tommy that he is a...
    songthrush.

    I was reminded of this story because I was playing a game called "Songbird Symphony" (a bird-themed Metroidvania/rhythm game), which has a bird (called "Birb") who wanted to know what kind of bird he is, although he knows for sure that he's not like the other birds.

    I know very well the stories from P.D. Eastman where a couple try to find a home to build a nest because they didn't like their old home. I also recall Eastman wrote a story on a chick that asks everything if they're his mother. Are You My Mother and The Best Nest.

    Awww he likes you and is having conversation with you. Be nice, stretch hands with him.

    The furniture in Animal Crossing has more personality than the villagers yet people won't stop talking about the villagers.

    I don't even care that much of a lack of dialogue, we have hundreds of villagers. All are cut and paste from like 5 presets. They should've created subsets within the presets perhaps.

    I'm not saying this to assume furniture is bland by the way and just that the villagers are blander. Furniture in Animal Crossing games DO have personality in their quirky designs and themes and interaction. Even that's all they are, just exhibit one note, that's comparable to those villagers. And I enjoy collecting furniture and decorating my house a lot more than wishing for the right villager honestly.

    What's your favorite variant of "it's-a me, Mario!"? Mine would be the Mario Golf 64 one, it just sounds so cheery.

    Mario Super Sluggers is an honorable mention because Mario talks to plants for coins.

    The 64 version is a classic that started it all but I think the voice sounds a little off compared to most of Mario's voice library these days.

    My favorite is from Bowser's Inside Story (the original).

    Mario sounds ready for anything

    and Luigi saying "Okie Dokey" only adds to it

    Super Smash Bros. Brawl was the time when there weren't simulated depth to any textures, making everything look printed-on, so I question whether I even had backpockets to begin with.

    probably 2d sprites with normal mapping effects to make them pop

    @Sweetie Belle so I'm correct. To be technical, they're still 3D models, but a plane with an animated texture applied to it. The video refers to it as bumpmapping, though for contemporary games this is a "normal map" (Wikipedia article). A "normal", in 3D modeling terms, is a property of a model that determines how light hits it. A "map" refers to the UV texture map a model has, where UV refers to 2D coordinates. So a "normalmap" is a texture map that has specific information for how light hits a model, and this is used to simulate an appearance of depth. This is applied on top of a diffuse/albedo map which is just the pure color. I also want to say a normalmap's purpose is to simulate depth but there are additional textures that add more detail to a model such as roughness maps, ambient occlusion, metallic maps, emissive maps (self illumination), height maps. Brawl models seem to have just diffuse given the weaker hardware, so the textures on the artwork does have a flat appearance.

    The video says it's to save processing and stuff which is true, as it's easier to render a 2d plane with only four vertices rather than a multi-vertices object with bones and stuff, but it's not like models from source 2D Mario games are all that expensive nor are the textures so detailed they'll stress the Wii U. I do think there's a scene change part of it, but it does appear that Mario, Bowser, and Bowser Jr. are in 3D, but I'm guessing they deserve more detail or something while the enemies can just be streamlined into 2D planes. It's probably better to make Mario 3D because he has a lot of movement options which are better served with a 3D model + skeleton that can deal with more detailed animations.
    I see a lot of people hate their old selves and today they believe they're so much better and stuff. I've done a bunch of crap in the past and probably came off as an immature weirdo but I've accepted that for what I was and so I don't hate my own teen self. I have to say I don't 100% think I'm all THAT better. I still make stupid unfunny posts like usual.

    I'm still me, just more mature.

    That being said I can't really easily look at some of my first posts ever so it's harder to evaluate those changes over the years.

    My current self is best, older me was never bad but a bit too argumentative and such, now I make effort to be more mature

    It's just a vicious cycle. The more you feel you've matured, the worse the image of your past self looks. And after realizing that I feel like one day I'll look back upon myself now and bash him. Ultimately tho, I feel like I've always been a decent person anyway, no matter the small details. And I think that's what counts more.

    2016's presidential election process was... wild to say the least, and I remember there being a ton of celebrity deaths that year, but it wasn't a bad year for me personally. That was the year I joined the Mario Wiki and Boards, so that was one good thing for me. In terms of world events, I feel like 2020 is worse in a lot of ways than 2016. Mostly because of Covid, but also stuff like the Australia fires, WWIII scare (though that was a bit overblown), volcanos erupting in the Philippines, etc.
