    lynx's art & writing thread!!

    So I guess I've gotten back into drawing and writing a bit, so I figured I'd make a thread to show those things off. I should say in advance that not all of this will be Mario stuff; in fact, the first thing I'll post is related to FNAF. (This is especially the case given that I am not...

    Unpopular opinions about video games in general.

    Time for a more disgruntled version of Lynx to come out here for a complaint I've had about internet reviewers of video games for a long time now. (Note: I don't dislike any of these people personally and at the end of the day, it's fine for them to disagree. It just kind of bites that it feels...

    Should Euthanasia Be Legal?

    I think the problem here is you're looking at it as outlawing anything, when in reality it's simply not legalizing a method and making it something that doctors have to do unless it is considered absolutely necessary. I also said earlier that I am not in favor of outlawing suicide period; I just...

    Should Euthanasia Be Legal?

    Death through injection isn't actually painless; it's done wherever the death penalty is, and it's more painful than using a guillotine. It also costs money to do it, and it can be botched just like any other suicide method (botched executions of this sort have happened plenty of times over)...

    Mario Fanfic Share & Discuss

    I have a couple of these that I can share! Stand Up and Fight, Luigi! by Lilypetal347 is a fic about Luigi's feelings during Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, and it's a very sweet fic that I love going back to. That one describes canon events, but if you want something a little more canon divergent...

    Should Euthanasia Be Legal?

    The problem is that making euthanasia legal is taking an official, legislated stance that encourages suicide as an option by making it a legal option (rather than simply having no stance on suicide at all by choosing not to give it a legal punishment). And honestly? If they found out that they...

    Should Euthanasia Be Legal?

    What practical purpose is there in legislating suicide? You can't enforce it against the person who committed it, as they would be dead, and if they didn't succeed at it, punishing them further (when most who commit suicide do so because they feel they have no out and that life itself is...

    Does Mario really kill tanooki

    Obviously I don't think anyone here sincerely thinks that Mario skins tanuki, but an interesting thing to note about the leaf aspect in particular is that it implies less that Mario is wearing the suit from a live tanuki and more like he literally becomes one with typical tanuki myth. This is...

    Unpopular opinions about the Mario series

    On a similar note, Partners in Time is really not that bad. In fact, I'd say it's a very good game, and I certainly wouldn't say it's the worst of the M&L RPG series. It's true there's a bit of strange curving when it comes to the HP that enemies have, but honestly, I never... like, honestly...

    Would you like another sprite based platformer?

    It's also very possible for them to use 3D models but model them in such a way that they resemble 2D sprites. That way, they can still have the efficiency of making models while at the same time being able to render within the pixelart style.

    Overrated Mario Characters

    This is kinda why I said it felt like a "pair the spares" sort of scenario. It's totally okay if people ship it of course but it just feels like pairing her with Luigi because he's the second character and she's the second princess. It's kind of a shame there's such a limited pool of men we...

    Things in Mario games that mystify you

    I mean, not really? The other responses you got were a bit more practical "he's possibly trans", but another explanation could simply be that Yoshi in general are able to reproduce asexually and egg-laying isn't really exclusive to their "biologically female" Yoshi. Binary gender concepts...

    I think everyone worries a little bit about other people's responses from time to time. It starts counting as a disorder when that fear is debilitating enough that it's getting in the way of your life and difficult to manage.

    I just beat __

    I just beat the Sonic.exe mod for Friday Night Funkin'. Pretty good mod! Main story mode is hard. Definitely harder maps that can give you some trouble, especially since Triple Trouble's map is a bit hard to read with the arrows being spaced out the way they are. As of posting this, I've beaten...

    Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl (Diamond/Pearl Remakes)

    Nah, I can see where they're coming from. While I do think being able to encounter whatever you want within the over-world is overall a very good QoL change, there's something being lost in removing random encounters entirely. When you see them roaming you know exactly what you're going to get...

    Overrated Mario Characters

    Given that I got a bit of an indirect response to my post in here, I'd like to rephrase my initial post (though I'll still leave it up there, for context's sake). Firstly, I completely understand where you guys are coming from on the word "overrated" being used in condescension. I also think...

    Overrated Mario Characters

    Mostly I feel this way about the partners in the first game. Besides Parakarry and Bow, I don't find them particularly... memorable? I know people really like Lakilester, but personally I don't see his appeal very much. I do think Parakarry is hilarious and Bow is to this day one of the most...

    Fictional Crushes (or characters you just found cute or something)

    I don't tend to have video game crushes as much as I do characters that I either think are cute or Uhh Damn Haha Come Here Often? Obviously fictional characters are idealized versions of real people and I certainly wouldn't take dating them over my partners in a real life scenario, but. Also...

    Do you know what the above user's avatar is?

    I do indeed! That is an Oho Jee from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, specifically when they are not lit on fire. The Oho Jee is specifically the red variant. In Superstar Saga, their role is supposed to be a sort of test dummy for fire and electric powers (the latter for the blue ones, to be...

    Rate the above user's signature.

    5/10. Not exactly my cup of tea with the art style in each of the pictures, but they're arranged nicely and go together cohesively, and the link surrounded by two pixel gifs looks pretty cute. The Oho Jee within the signature makes for a nice tie-in with the icon as well.

    Describe the above user's avatar in way too much detail

    Shaped like a chip, the Oho Jee marches obliviously onward to its own drum, one dusty brown shoe-wearing foot hovering within the air, somehow managing to levitate despite the clear and obvious absence of legs (or, in the case there would be any, its only possible location being squished against...

    Why did you choose your current avatar?

    I got impatient. Also, this is funny. I directly took the sprite from the mod, put on a generic png of a Santa hat, put in snow and the bi flag, and viola. Here we are.

    Game remakes you think are inferior to the original versions?

    Could not disagree with this take more. I kind of understand where you're coming from that the originals have a unique feel and it's why I go back to them, but I think HGSS is extremely charming. It's the first game that introduced following Pokémon, and it fleshed out the purpose of the...

    What game did you last play?!?!?!?

    The answer has changed since last time, so I'm gonna go ahead and say it: I've been playing Friday Night Funkin' mods. It's really fun to see how people in the fanbase of that game have grown creatively. Stickman's mod in particular is hilarious.

    Mario Kart: Double Dash!! vs Mario Kart Wii

    Doublel Dash!!'s gimmick sets it apart from all other kart games that are out to this day; while team racing certainly exists, it's not on the level of you both being in the same kart. Not to mention you can play two characters at once! Compared to that, MarioKart Wii's idea is very run of the...

    What Super Mario game(s) do you get the most nostalgic for?
