  2. I have read this story to my son countless times and this part makes absolutely no sense to me.

Unless the course of action is to do things that rhyme.

Signs you’re no longer the target demographic: All you can see in this picture is a pair of ratty sneakers disgustingly close to open containers of food. Why are you even wearing shoes indoor, kid? Go put those back in the mudroom. Your mom and I didn’t buy this white carpet so you could track your filth through the whole damn house. I swear to god, you think we’re made of money, don’t you?

    X
    Argonaut/Nintendo
    Game Boy, 1992

    Not to be mistaken for the game we now know as Xenoblade Chronicles X, this is a sort of proto-Star Fox, a fancy 3D shooter that pushed the Game Boy hardware and inexplicably never left Japan. Silly Nintendo, Americans like shooting things.

    Also the first appearance of Totaka’s Song.

    Boxxle
    Thinking Rabbit/FCI
    Game Boy, 1990

    Soukoban greeted the ’90s with a zestful embrace: On Game Boy, wearing its baseball cap backwards.

    Animation and synthesized sound.

    The Sword of Hope
    Kemco
    Game Boy, 1990

    I’ll be playing this for the first time soon. I hope it’s not terrible!

    Holy shit, that font is so Kemco. How did I know it was Kemco just by that title font?

Rob Liefeld 

"so I’m working on this new character and it comes down to this: how many pouches does he need and what color should his giant jacket/armor be?"

I love that Cable has an outfit for every season here. “He may be a Summers, but he’s ready for action year ‘round!”

Clearly fake as there is no way the real Rob Liefeld would pass up on the name Cybrid.

  8. Listening to podcasts

    After using it for about three weeks now, I have to say Overcast is a damn nifty podcast player. Five bucks unlocks some features, two of which completely fixed a problem I had listening to Japanese podcasts. One, that the volume on them often seemed to be much lower than the other podcasts I had subscribed to and two, the slower speed of conversation.

    Which seems weird since Japanese as a…

Flying schoolgirl action from Attack Animal Gakuen, which I wrote about last week.

The single-pixel panty flash is actually kind of heroic in its sadness. Nor rain nor snow nor strict sprite resolution and palette limitations will stop us from showing a school girl’s underwear.

I always thought it a bit more upper thigh.

Then again, clone games have such little in the way of standards to begin with.
