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

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:
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
Censoring the InternetA few weeks ago I made mention of feminist Anita Sarkeesian who started a kickstarter for a web series called "Tropes Vs Women" specifically centered around how women are portrayed in video games.Censoring the Internet in Personal More Like This
Despite the fact that kickstarters are payed for by people who've made the decision they want to contribute their money to the project, Anita came under attack from gamers for "scamming" audiences when her fund far exceeded the target goal. Just this past week it's come out that a 25 year old man from Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, Canada, created a video game where the object is to punch the crap out of Anita. Wounds, bruises, and blood gush out the more you beat her up in this virtual game, and it's drawn some widespread attention.
Whether you agree with her viewpoint is not the issue, it's the fact that this retaliation is just "wrong" on so many levels. Do these people realize that what they're doing is shooting themselves in the foot? Making a video game where you beat up someone who's making
Arrietty is an evil movie, apparently...A few months back Fox News went after The Muppets for "promoting the liberal agenda" (whatever the **** that means this week).

They claim that both movies "demonize the 1%" and that people "offended" by these movies should fight back by... littering. Don't believe me? Watch the video and get ready to facepalm: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuFcWkFJZgk
Now I can understand (barely) how a conservative could possibly have an issue with The Lorax since it deals with criticizing the logging industry and promoting the dangers of excessive defore

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

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

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

One dead console.My XBox 360 died last night.......again.One dead console. in Personal More Like This
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$.

However; the "historical" section of the ceremony's opening half utterly blew me away.

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.

Indeed; Avengers is THE best Marvel movie since Iron Man. Ace cast, brilliant story, hysterical script, a scene that will stab anyone that's followed the films leading up to this point right through the heart and a fair few more surprises.
Chief among them being; how the hell did the Hulk become such a f**king awesome character after so many naff films?
I'm gonna go see this one again!

I did it. After three years, I opened up my DS holder and turned on my Nintendo DS. The battery actually still lasted a few hours without needing a recharge. I can remember why I dropped playing it because it’s awkward to hold and it can be quite a time sink. I’m playing Dragon Quest IV and I have some interesting reactions.

Megaupload got taken down because our corporate masters at USGov Incorporate are pissed. Which is weird they took it out on them because Megaupload is always polite with responding to any and all DMCA notices immediately.
Some interesting quotes I heard today.
"There's no point protesting SOPA. The USA is a rogue government and will do what they want regardless of a bill passing. The time to protest SOPA and PIPA is over, the time to protest the USA Government itself has begun."
"Shutting down Megaupload because you can find lots of illegal movies and music in there is like shutting down New York because you could find lots of illegal guns and drugs in there. With the only difference that music and movies don't kill."
And so on. In a world where their case was just "they're stealing stuff"...and it was whit

And Pinkie is officially scary again. But still cute.
So it was Saturday so I'll get my MLP reaction out of the way firstly.
It was a lot of fun. The best scene was probably given away by the teaser HUB posted but there were still a lot of great scenes.
Derpy fans are now in a puddle of happy. Or not...who knows with the internet but I found it cute.
Speaking of puddles...outhouses. Wow...yeah...that actually surprised me the most.
It was a good episode. You can guess where it's going. They did try a couple things which did kinda surprise me. It was a lot of fun though and especially cathartic after today.
And why? Because mom threw up just the other day, two doctors came to consult and yet...they want to rubber stamp her release. Because why bother taking responsibility when heaving a sick person on tired people is much cheaper to them. We will be able to restart the caregivers immediately at least.

First of all, I wake up and I hear on TV about a venture capitalist putting together some sort of creative venture where micro-donations of several thousand dollars will go to different cartoon projects. This is the iffiest one of the day because I don't remember the name and was sleepy at the time. If anyone has further info on this...feel free to tell me.
Then, remember I wished that Kickstarter had TV shows or even animes and such... - http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/729054704/the-new-kind?ref=recommended

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. But if I could transplant the science of now and the optimism for science back then into one reality, that would be fantastic.Beyond 2000 in Personal More Like This

Pleasing An Audience vs. Challenging ThemTowards the bottom of the NEWS section, you'll find a video about Evangelion which I watched a little while ago which got me thinking about the audience of a work.Pleasing An Audience vs. Challenging Them in Personal More Like This
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

Severe democracy crisis in Malaysia: Fraud in Malaysian 13th General Election by the National Front!
The National Front had played fraud in the Malaysian 13th General Election in order to retain its dictatorial rule on the nation.
The regime of Malaysian National Front had bribed to allow voters of Bangladeshi origins besides using all underhanded tricks in order to preserve its tyrannical rule.
One despicable event was that in the district of Bentong, Dr. Liao Tiong Lai had inevitably lost in the election. But after a mysterious blackout in the voting centre, 8 ballot boxes appeared mystically, covering the whole gap of 3,000 votes. The same non-democratic occurrences are also arising in the whole nation!
