What the what...

Ever have a video or image or joke that's funny, and it circles around for being funny before it's just kinda ...forgotten?
But then it can come back and you remember all the reasons it was good in the first place and love it all over?


Love how there are people in the youtube comments defending this absurdity.  Oh internet...

As for the issue of silent male leads that you get to roleplay, it pretty much stems from JRPG designers believing that only Japanese high school aged boys play them hence them typically being dumb as bricks, that have absolutely no say in matters, terrible fashion sense, no personality, and the depth of a blank sheet of paper. Of course even if they weren't silent or lacking in a personality they'd still be teenaged males because there's no stale, overplayed, play-it-safe, cliched MC archetypes for females (except for the ones who either operate their dainty stores and only moonlight as an adventurer, dress up in their skimpy magic girl outfit as they battle evil magic girls in even skimpier outfits, or are too busy trying to garner the attention of her romantic interest/the male lead to be effectual in any meaningful capacity) or anyone over the age of 21.

Okay, and does any of that relate to Zelda?

Is this strictly about Zelda?
I think Dice mentioned silent MCs and he replied to it?

It's about as on-topic as most of Aeolus's rants.

Seriously, though, I've always thought silent protagonists were more popular in the west than in Japan anyway.  Can we blame that on Japanese teenagers too?

The PSP can't handle certain WPA2 key settings.  I forget the specifics since it's been a while but I went through headaches because of this too.  Sure you can disable or downgrade your security, but I like having security.  In the end I gave up and just started downloading everything on my PS3 and copying it over USB (which in a way is nicer since the PS3 can actually do other things while it downloads in the background, unlike the PSP...).  It's not like there are any PSP games I actually play online.

Fortunately the Vita does not have this problem.  It has worked with everything I've thrown it at so far.

Had to leave at 5:30am to catch a flight this morning.  Since lately I've been going to bed at like 3 or 4am I just said 'fuck it' and decided to stay up rather than try to get up when I normally go to bed.

Now I'm tired.

The best Zelda game is Okami ;)

Well, I went for it.  It was just too good a deal to ignore.  Not to mention that there's some decent stuff on the PS3 side as well (I never actually got LBP2, though I had some interest in it).

Oh, and P4G arrived.  Yeesh, when am I going to play all this stuff?  My pit of backloggery just keeps getting deeper and deeper.  And yet people say there's nothing to play on the Vita...I almost wish I had that problem!  Almost...

I actually liked the gameplay in Catherine.  But then I like puzzle games.  And you don't usually see puzzle games with a narrative like that...it was and interesting combination.

It is a pretty amazing lineup.  I've never been sold on the whole Playstation Plus thing (Sure there are lots of free games, but are they actually games I want to play?  I'm more worried about wasting my time than saving a few bucks), but this might just convince me to take the plunge.  I feel like a bit of a sucker, though, since I got Gravity Rush just before this was announced.

Once you get that together... how sturdy is it? How hard would you have to press on the top of that shroom to mess it up?

Well, it's definitely got some flex in it but it will restore it's shape after you let go with moderate pressure. 

The legs are the bigger problem.  If they get stuck together they don't come apart...

Estelle encounters a buckyball monster!

Why can't I make shit like that with my buckyball?  I wanted to make a star too, but the positives and negatives get all wonky and I'm left with some stupid shitty warped thing....

It's not that hard, you just have to make the building blocks first.  I recommend starting with hexagons (from a loop of 18 balls) because they're easier to mess around with.  They're super stable structures that bond to each other more weakly than within the hexagon, so you can link and unlink them as much as you want while you just play around.

The other major building structure is the triangle (made from 9 balls), but they actually take some planning ahead.  Once you've bonded a couple triangles together it's really hard to get them apart without deforming them and probably ruining the thing you're making so it's a lot harder to just mess around with them.  Though I did make the legs from loops of triangles but that's a pretty simple structure.
