Merry Christmas Zelda TIMELINE!Nintendo is celebrating Zelda's 25 year anniversary by releasing a Zelda encyclopedia/art book in Japan. From early reports and translations there's something rather unexpected in there... the much sought after Zelda Timeline.Merry Christmas Zelda TIMELINE! in Personal More Like This
Trying to figure out the Zelda timeline has been a geek pastime for decades, and it's only been made more desirable thanks to Nintendo releasing cryptic responses of both "yes we have one" to "no we don't" over the years. With the caveat that this might all be bunk because it's too early to tell just yet, here is how Nintendo sees the Zelda timeline: http://wii.ign.com/articles/121/1215301p1.html
First up you need to understand one thing... there IS a split in the timeline thanks to Ocarina of Time. Yes the split timeline theory IS correct... sort of. What you probably didn't know is that the split isn't into two alternate timelines resulting from the different endings... but actually THREE timelines. Let me explain...
In chronological order:
The Derpy Issue Part 3Seems like I need to clarify a couple things for people. If you don't know what the hullabaloo is all about, please read through the next couple paragraphs. If you're already caught up to the situation please skip to the second half.The Derpy Issue Part 3 in Personal More Like This
In the first season of Friendship is Magic, an animation mistake rendered a background pony with "derpy" eyes. The producers thought it was cute and left it in, occasionally sticking the pony in various scenes. While many people liked calling her Ditzy Doo (based on a remark made in Winter Round Up), the general internet population started calling her Derpy Hooves. Derpy became such a huge phenomenon online that the producers decided to include her in more episodes for Season 2. In Season 2 she started appearing more up close and doing strange things in the backgrounds, making for a fun game of "where's waldo" for the fans. The capper to all this was when Derpy got a speaking role in an episode and was referred to AS Derpy by Rainbow
VVVVVVNo that's not a typo. That's the name of an indi game that is currently available a variety of ways (including the 3DS and Steam). I purchased it on a whim off of the 3DS's eShop and was pleasantly surprised by what I found.VVVVVV in Personal More Like This
Don't let the low level graphics fool you. This is a seriously unique game and the retro feel and chiptune music all work together beautifully. It's kinda like crossing the level difficult insanity of Battle Kid with the exploration style gameplay of Metroid infused with the "no worries try again" aesthetic of Bit Trip Runner.
It's very difficult to describe this game but I'm gonna try anyway. The entire thing is built around the core mechanic of flipping gravity up and down. Your character cannot jump at all. The only way to move around is to flip gravity causing you to fall up or down. The level layouts are phenomenal at keeping you from getting too stuck or worried you might hit something bad, and there are plenty of checkpoints to ensure that you never have to
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

The Derpy Issue Part 2It's come to my attention that Hasbro has, indeed, changed Derpy. In the iTunes version of "the Last Roundup" where she finally talks and Rainbowdash says her name, Derpy no longer has "derpy" eyes (although they do seem to occasionally be crossed), has a different voice actress, and Rainbowdash doesn't say her name. If you want to see the clip you can see it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?featurelayer_embedded&v=X2CRjPO73Dg#!The Derpy Issue Part 2 in Personal More Like This
Sadly I can't get behind the bronies on this one. You guys screwed it up for the rest of us and I have no sympathy for your plight. Hasbro is entirely justified in their position as a corporation to protect their properties from perceive negative perceptions, and that would never have happened if we as a community hadn't thrown such a tantrum over a non issue.

NEWS STORIES (now with more sources!)George Lucas now says Hans Solo never shot first... ever. Even in the 1977 original movie. According to him he had filmed the scene in question from all angles and due to faulty editing it appeared as if Hans shot Greedo and was a "cold blooded killer." This portrayal of Hans apparently rankled in George's mind for such a long time that he attempted to "correct" it in all subsequent re-releases, much to the chagrin and annoyance of Star Wars fans. I could go into a lot of crazy detail about how his wife edited a lot of Star Wars because George can't edit his films, and the subsequent re-edits are possibly George trying to distance himself from his divorce and painful emotional memories (hence why Jedi aren't allowed to "love" in the prequels but are perfectly ok to do so in the originals)... but that would probably bore the crap out of people and I'm honestly just sick of George continuing to change things. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/115773-George-Lucas-Says-Greedo-AlwayNEWS STORIES (now with more sources!) in Personal More Like This

Late Lesson LearnedWhile doing research for the new SYAC, I actually stumbled upon something truthful on TVtropes.org. Usually I take everything from that site with a grain of salt, but this one bit actually was surprisingly honest and truthful about webcomics:Late Lesson Learned in Personal More Like This
Webcomics work on a very different set of standards than other fiction. Almost all webcomic authors are working pretty much entirely alone as they both draw and script their comics and most do not plan any further along than to the end of their current story sometimes not even that far.
Many of them try to adhere to a schedule they aren't really capable of meeting, resulting in them rushing to meet their deadline and making mistakes that should be avoidable. So many of the good 10% lack qualities standard in traditionally professional works. This can be because of the lack of editorial input as well as the lack of lead time. Not all webcomics suffer from this, though, and even the ones that do can still be interesting. Arguably, some str

EA refuses to waver from their stance that the always-online DRM for SimCity that's caused so many problems is absolutely necessary to the functioning of the game. However, a modder by the name of UKAzzer has proved that EA is basically full of shit. UKAzzer discovered that the code which checks for a connection every 20 minutes could be changed to 0, resulting in no checks at all. The game still plays and functions perfectly offline, with only minor hiccups.

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Earth. But

Just to let you guys know I'm writing up a story version of Descent into Dreams (as it happens) for you guys. I miss writing a lot. Writing Windows to a Haunted Mind back in the day was a lot of fun. So consider Descent into Dreams writing fodder too.
It will be uploaded as a fic the day the last page of the intro goes online. I only have 2.5 pages left to complete of the comic so it will be very soon (ie) this week.
It will hopefully add an extra dimension to the scenes shown in the comic

Olympic Fire and IndustryWell; the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics certainly was .surprising.Olympic Fire and Industry in Personal More Like This
As I predicted; there was quite a bit of content that just had me squirming in my chair, thinking "No! NO! Why did you do that?!". The absurdity of the nod to the NHS, for example, and the sudden appearance of various storybook villains, which felt (for lack of a better word) "Disney".
However; the "historical" section of the ceremony's opening half utterly blew me away. An unexpected appearance by Kenneth Branagh, playing Isambard Kingdom Brunel (who essentially WAS the Industrial Revolution), began a spectacular sequence that pretty much summed up what Britain's past was all about; fire and industry.
It was, without a doubt, the highlight of the entire spectacle, and if you either didn't get the chance to catch it or didn't bother to watch it, I urge you to track it down online!

I was merrily replaying Modern Warfare 3 and was on the final mission when the screen went funky. Now, this happened 3 or 4 years ago, so I knew what was going to happen; I turned the console off in the hope that a reset would solve the funky-screen issue, but rather than a clear image - I get no image at all.
It's a known problem, especially with the first generation of 360 machines and as mine is a "Launch Team" version (If you worked for M$ at the time, they gave you a special edition one with green plating) it certainly falls into that category.
Something to do with the cheap, shoddy soldering used by M$.

Thanks to the rebellion/revolution, the British Government changed the way it conducted itself so as to ensure such an incident would never happen again.
Had they not, a revolution similar to that seen in France, 1789, would have very likely occurred on home turf.
The French leadership maintained their "all powerful" façade, and in assisting the American colonies, spent a fortune. This further angered their already irate people, who, in seeing that it could be done, decided to have a little revolution of their own.
So, with the economy booming thanks to renewed transatlantic trade between Fair Blighty and the newly formed United States and with Britain's arch enemy France focused on tearing itself apart, there was nothing to stop the Empire's expansion.

The author of the video refers a lot to what one might call mass media vs more individualized works. On the one hand you have a product which is being worked over. You have elements which have been researched to sell and need to be there. He gives the example of romance novels and the character types and later talks about the audience surrogate. At the same time, he mentions how once the points have been hit on a product, there's a point where the people creating can kinda work on getting stuff past the radar, so to speak, translate a bit of their own creativity into a work.
This is just one part of the video where he goes into the perspective of Evangelion and how it challenged what he even puts above otaku culture…the super-fan (which I consider by name to be an oxymoron because it's actually people who abuse that which th

Beyond 2000I used to really love that show on the old Discover Channel. I even remember when it was called "Towards 2000" but I saw it the most with this particular designation. Beyond 2000 made me feel delighted about the future even in some of their stuff has been long surpassed and some was just imagined optimism. The world needs a weekly scientific optimism show. So much more of that needs to be out there. It impressed such a joy in me about what people might and will be able to do. But then at that age I was much more starry-eyed about possibilities. The Clinton era as they say. Sure, so much still sucked but it seems like a lot of things sucked less. I wouldn’t go back to that level of computers and internet though. Not more AOL.
