My Minecraft Testificate InfestationIn Minecraft there are these squidward like villagers called Testificates. In a recent update they were given new abilities such as having babies to repopulating a town based on the number of houses there are. Since the requirement for a "house" is simply a room with a roof and a door, I decided to spend my time building a massive city for the Testificates to populate, using a generated village as a starting point.My Minecraft Testificate Infestation in Personal More Like This
After building a number of houses, I began noticing the little children running wild and there becoming quite a LOT of villagers. I undertook a huge task of building a BIG open area underground with a couple doors and lights. Because the area was so big, the Testificates began to... um... OVER populate.
These little buggers reproduced the village so fast that I couldn't keep up and soon they were overflowing out of buildings. Mob attacks couldn't keep up with the rate they were repopulating, and the iron golems that kept spawning (for every 15 villager a new one spawns) made
Minecraft Snapshot 12w17a - BOOKS!I haven't been keeping up with the various Minecraft updates recently. After 1.2 was released I suddenly found myself without much time to play. But recently since I've gotten back into playing Minecraft because a friend of mine wanted me to play on their server, I've been more keen to see what I've missed.Minecraft Snapshot 12w17a - BOOKS! in Personal More Like This
This is the most recent "snapshot" of the game and it's a BIG deal. You can now write in BOOKS! It's super easy to do too. Just take a book, an ink sac, and a feather and put them all in the crafting table. It creates a "book and quill." While holding the book and quill, if you right click it opens up a txt screen you can fill in with whatever you want!
You can write up to 50 pages of text and edit at your will. When you've got the book where you want it to be you can finish it by clicking the SIGN button. When you do this you'll be asked to give it a title. After that, it's done! No one can edit your book and you can re-read it any time you want!

Being Critical =/= HateLooks like I need to remind people about this again, as yesterday I got several comments in a row from people who assumed that me being critical about something automatically translated into me outright hating it. I don't know how to stress this enough but that's not the case... You can be critical of stuff you like and not hate it. I don't know why our culture tries so hard to force everything into such black and white terms but come on guys, really... being critical and smart about what you love doesn't mean you hate it.Being Critical =/= Hate in Personal More Like This
Take the Dragon's Crown comic, for example, in which I was critical of the Sorceress's design. From that someone hypothesized that I must HATE the game, and that's farthest from the truth. I know full well that Vanillaware is an amazing studio and they do fantastic work. One of my favorite games of theirs is Muramasa the Demon Blade. Dragon's Crown has scored really highly and it's most definitely worth your money to buy/download it if you can. BUT... I can still be
One Myth I Wish I Could Dispel"Feminism means you can't like sexy things"One Myth I Wish I Could Dispel in Personal More Like This
After doing a series of comics standing up for women's rights, there's a lot of really negative rumors going on around me right now. Most of which point to the hypocrisy that I use to draw fetish artwork and that recently I made pin-ups that were "sexy" in nature. Because, of course, if you're an artist who stands up for women's rights from that moment on you're not allowed to EVER draw women in a way that might be construed as potentially "sexy," lest you be labeled a hypocrite.
As I've mentioned before in previous journals, I really can't stand this mentality the internet has of polarizing extremes. You've always gotta be in one extreme or you're in the other. There's never the possibility that you could be in the middle like, you know, a normal person would be.
I understand why that is: it's easier to point out fallacies and bitch and whine about people when they fit into nice neat black and white spec
'Why Are We Even Talking About This?'I get that phrase a lot, that and "over react much?" whenever I bring up ANY issue, be it from a video game, politics, or whatever.

You'll be unsurprised to learn that I don't agree with that wisdom. In my books, if you don't do anything, nothing is going to happen. If there's an injustice in the world somewhere and you stay silent, that injustice isn't going to fix itself. It will just keep happening. That, my friends, is complacency.
Then of course there are those people who don't believe that the world will ever change, therefor there's no reason to try, and actively try to stop anyone who dares to stand up for something. I can't begin to describe how annoying that mindset is to me. It's almost sadistic in it's very nature, by actively trying to stop people from making the world a better place by being dismissi

If you want power, you need to turn the outlets on, and to do that you gotta push a switch down.

Socially AwkwardI like the internet, but I acknowledge that it's not perfect. The ability for everyone to be the invisible man allows for a lot of injustice, bullying, harassment, and stalking to take place. This is slowly starting to change, however, thanks to every website gradually forcing people to link to their facebook (or other social media equivalent) accounts. No one wants to lose their personal social outlets as a result of the stuff they were doing elsewhere on the web, if you know what I mean. But... with all good things there are some bad things.Socially Awkward in Personal More Like This
I don't know if it's just me, but I'm getting really creeped out how by how much everything is getting connected these days. Nearly every website asks me to post about stuff on facebook or twitter or reddit or whatever. Many websites don't even have personal accounts anymore and just have you link your social media accounts instead. And all of them want to update everyone on your every move 24/7.
And that's what's bothering me. I don't want every
Poking FunPokéFunPoking Fun in Personal More Like This
People seem to love to jump to conclusions. If there's one thing I want people who visit my page or read my comics to understand, it's this: If I poke fun at something, that does not automatically mean that I HATE it.
I'm restating that now because it came up again recently in the "Nintentroll" comic. People seemed to think that because the comic is making fun of certain pokemon that means I am decrying the whole series or somehow personally insulting those who actually do enjoy the specific examples I used. Let me reassure you, I am not.
I guess I just want people to lighten up and not always be in such a defensive mode all the time. Everyone has different likes and dislikes and if I don't like something or happen to poke fun at something you do, that does not mean I am personally attacking you and there's no reason to be so knee-jerk defensive about it. This goes for everything I do beyond the "Nintentroll" comic as well. If I poke fun at a movie, or video game, or spe
What's Wrong With Praise?So this is another one of those artistic taboos we're never suppose to talk about, apparently. The idea of giving back positive feedback to an artist. It's seen as "coddling" as "babying" as "inflating the ego" and has such intense negative associations. It seems to be generally accepted that the only way to critique someone's work is to point out ONLY the negative parts. Any attempt to point out anything positive or something you liked about the work is seen as being unhelpful towards the artist's growth.What's Wrong With Praise? in Personal More Like This
And frankly I think that's a bunch of hogwash.
Speaking from my own experience, I rarely ever get anything positive said about my work in a constructive way. I might get a lot of "good jobs" or people talking happily about my comics because they made them laugh, but I rarely if ever get any comments that go into detail explaining WHY I did something right. On the flip side, the amount of negative criticism and nitpicking is almost hilariously rampant, not just on my artwork but on th
A Journal about Elikiteru and Sylveon - EDITS!!!I'll address Elikiteru ( http://fav.me/d64x2op ) first. Electric/Normal Type. Interesting. For what purpose does it serve for the Normal to come as secondary? It would make a lot more sense for it to come as Normal/Electric like Bibarel, Sawsbuck, etc. And it's an odd design, too. Truth be told, it looks like something my little sister could come up with. It's pretty cute, I guess. It's my least favorite of all the new X and Y Pokemon, but I want a doll of it regardless. Anyway, it's design is so... how do I say this, subtle? I've seen a few points about it. For example, people think that the way it's ears(?) hang down make it resemble a Samurai's hat. However, I see something different. To me, Elikiteru appears to be wearing a head band; that is to say one that people have to literally tie on and let the straps hang down. Those types of head bands are often referred to as ones people wear when fighting. Personally, I think the reason Normal is it's secondary type is becauseA Journal about Elikiteru and Sylveon - EDITS!!! in Personal More Like This

So a new Mewtwo Forme was leaked, and although it's UNCONFIRMED to be true right now, the Forme is getting a lot of mixed reviews and feelings. In this journal you will hear my opinion of the forme, a review of it from my friend, and the evidence that shows why it could be real, or could be fake. It's up to you to take this information in any way you choose. This is my personal opinion, and I would appreciate if you try not to change it.
I personally don't mind the forme. I hope that it has it's own signature move, signature ability, different stats, and a different typing. With all of that, I think the new forme could be much more desirable. I personally think Mewtwo is overrated, and although it's an instant classic, I think a lot of people portray it as a much bigger deal than it truly is. Don't get me wrong, Mewtwo is a
Fairy Type pretty much ConfirmedThe other day, Pokebeach posted some rumors that were sent from inside sources specifically only to them. They apparently have quite a lot more information that they didn't post in fear of if it turned out fake, the source would lose all credit obtained prior. One rumor was the english names of the new Pokemon. The rumor stated the names were Gogoat, Fletchling, Panchum, and Helioptile. And today, those are exactly the English names revealed. The source also claims a Fairy Type, dual typed moves, Sky Battles, and apparently many more names to yet unreleased Pokemon. Most notably, however, the infamous Fairy Type has just been given substantial legitimacy. F***. There goes my Love Type theory...Fairy Type pretty much Confirmed in Personal More Like This
Mewtwo: The Forme ConfirmedCorocoro was leaked today, and in it, they didn't give us any new information. They mostly just focused on "Mewnew", or whatever you call it, and did reveal that it in fact is a new forme for Mewtwo. At least it has a name, at least. Now I await the new Movie Trailer coming out on April 18th. (And for those of you who don't know, the official The Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer will be released that day too. xD)Mewtwo: The Forme Confirmed in Personal More Like This
I am disappointed that it's not a Mewthree. I was hoping for that. But this does bring a new spark of hope. With Mewtwo, a classic Pokemon from the first generation, getting a new Forme six generations in, this means that any Pokemon could get a new Forme at any moment. That brings hope for Radiance Forme Meloetta, although I'm sure it's really doubtful. :\ One can hope, at least.
Corocoro's a comin'I'm pretty excited. I mean, obviously we'll be getting a recap of all the information we already know on Newmew/Mewnew, but I'm also hoping for new Information, too. I at least want a name, and an indication if it's a new Pokemon or a new forme for Mewtwo. I'm hoping for new information on Sylveon, but I think it's doubtful. It's killing me not knowing the type of it, so I hope they say something about it in this issue, since you know it's been out for two months and they haven't said a word about it. -___- If you want to be really hopeful, you can hope for new information regarding Xerneas and Yveltal, but like Sylveon, it's doubtful. I'd be pretty happy if we got another new Pokemon, but again, doubtful. What do you want? What do you think we'll get? Anything new? Hopefully!Corocoro's a comin' in Personal More Like This

The ice on the map...Is half of the entire Unova region really coated in ice? Or is it just there to hide some things? Looking closer at what is visible of the map, the ice covers half of the entire Skyarrow Bridge, the entire Pokemon League and Victory Road, and Iccirus City along with Dragonspiral Tower and Moor of Iccirus. The ice even coats a small section of Route 4, an area that isn't accessible in BW1 but is still desert. According to the laws of physics, I'm not even sure if that's possible. Anyway, are these ice-covered areas no longer accessible? Because it covers the Pokemon League, I find this theory to be false. The entire North-Eastern section of Unova is coated in ice. Especially a specific area that the mascots of the game could be found... *coughcoughgiantchasmcoughlacunosatowncoughcough* Like the first map of Unova from BW1, clouds were strategically placed to hide specific areas and landmarks, making it looks more geographic and realistic.

The only big news we've gotten since the announcement is the revelation of Sylveon, and all we know about it is what it looks like ans what it evolves from. I don't understand why Nintendo announced the game so early if all they're doing is hiding it all for so long. Its not a good business decision to do that.

I am going to admit I wasn't happy about them because I couldn't see them very well. Now that I can see them in full view, I'm proud to say that at least what we thought was a female player is the rival, because the female player looks soo much better in my opinion. Love her hair.

But, lucky us, because someone else was able to catch the video before it was deleted!

Loving every minuteBrighton is an amazing place. On my first real exploration of the town, we found dozens of little vintage shops, piercing and tattoo parlours, clubs, places to eat and more, not to mention Brighton pier which I have already developed a soft spot for, even if one of the rides nearly led to my bag being whipped into the sea. Nat cool!Loving every minute in Personal More Like This
I'm dipping into some slightly older archives, as it is very difficult to arrange shoots at the moment. I know I'm becoming sloppy with uploading, but please try to bear with me.

That wasn't three reveals, that was one. And it was a Mewtwo form. We didn't even get Sylveon's type. We didn't get any new gameplay footage, or new Pokemon. THAT'S IT. Gosh, I am mad.
And if you're gonna say, IT MIGHT MEWTHREE, NOT A MEWTWO FORM, just let me say this...
Mewtwo is already in the movie, why would they add a Mewtwo and Mewthree in the movie. And, Mewtwo appeared to change form in the trailer, so... Yeah...
WE GOT NOTHING I AM MADDDDD UGHHHHHHHHHHh
EDIT: The more I think about it, the more I think it's a Mewthree. Hmm.....

Okay, so They came out with a feature to change your name... but they will only allow it for Membership people! I mean, WHAT THE HECK!
That is some crap.
Now, I know some of you might be thinking: "But Nico, Why are you ranting about this?"
Well, I'll tell you.
I chose this dumb username when I was like 12 years old...
and I was obsessed with L4D back in the Day...
But If I want to change it without paying... I HAVE TO CREATE A NEW USER!
Now that is Not cool.
