  • The UK's pretty cool, but I don't want to live in a country where I'm not allowed to make faces at the Royal Guard or to call the queen a c***.
    I probably wouldn't do it anyway, but by hell I want the option!
    Confession time:
    I have an extremely soft spot for people with mental illness. YouTube started recommending me Sweet Anita videos, and I can't help but wanting to hug her and tell her that everything's ok.
    Furthermore, my ideal woman has a minor mental illness like anxiety or depression, because I suffer from those as well, and an ideal couple would help each other conquer those feelings.
    Ticket redemption games are whore****.
    If you market yourself as an arcade, I want GAMES, not gambling for kids.
    There are only two races:
    White and political.

    Two sexes:
    Male and political.

    Two sexualities:

    Straight and political.
    One of my sub-dreams after becoming a world famous singer is to open a museum and have literally every officially licensed video game product ever made under one roof.
    Everything from McDonald's boxes to unreleased prototypes.
    The Left is pissed that Biden bombed Syria.
    The Right is pissed that Mr. Potato Head got rebranded.
    What is a man to do when he loves a girl so much, that he feels physical pain in his chest and stomach when he realizes that she is not in his arms?
    You may be a princess, my love, and I may be just another man, but I'd conquer eight worlds to catch your eye.

    Oof. I really wish romance were like a video game. Sure, some would still be naturally gifted, but you could still get as many tries as needed until you finally complete your quest and are rewarded with affection.

    I know. Heh. Sometimes I dislike my differences.
    Normal pickup lines: "Hey cutie. Mind if I buy you a drink?"

    My pickup lines: "Look. I ain't a psychologist. I don't know what the "right" thing to say to you is. I just know that I really like you. Quite exceptionally, in fact. Of all the people I've ever met, you're the one I have my heart set upon. In the abstract, there are many things I'm hypothetically willing to do for your affection, but I don't want to risk overstepping and making a fool of myself. I can promise, however, to always be honest, loving, and open with you. There is nothing in this world that I want more than your affection."
    Odd how one person can make you so happy, and inversely, their absence can make you so sad. 😔

    Kinda. I haven't heard from my special one in nearly a month, and I get separation anxiety.
    Is Pac-Man a puzzle game?
    :ultpacman:

    Hmmm... I suppose that depends... Actually, it might very well be. The object is to navigate a maze, with a requirement of collecting dots and avoiding enemies, so it is a maze (puzzle) game. The only trouble is that less attention may be given to the maze, and more given to the enemies. Still, unless there is a technical term that incorporates all of these elements, I think it could qualify as a puzzle game...

    How Classic IPs Can Be Made Modern:
    (By modern, I mean AAA $60 experiences, not budget titles like Mega Man 11.)
    Contra: Gears of War but with platforming elements. Imagine the Scout from Team Fortress 2 for Bill and Lance's movement.

    Mega Man: Hear me out. This may sound weird at first. Breath of the Wild with a futuristic robotic setting. RPG elements like Mega Man X (health upgrades, weapon upgrades, special items, etc). Instead of the four main dungeons, make eight "dungeons" for the Robot Masters (if not more). Mega Man's moveset would function similar to Mega Man Legends, but in an open world. If this sounds weird, remember that Mega Man revolutionized non-linear gameplay by allowing the player to take on the Robot Masters in ANY ORDER. Now instead of a level select, imagine each robot master having a base in the open world causing havock in their respective areas of the map.

    Castlevania: God of War, but replace Greek Mythology with Catholic Mythology. Give it a competent team with AAA resources, and it'll print money.

    Pac-Man: If you've ever played Ms. Pac-Man: Maze Madness, then you know that that's the ideal formula for a modern Puzzle Platformer (but add some actual platforming). Like Crash Bandicoot 4, if it ain't broke, don't fix it; just make it bigger. 100+ levels, secret collectables, secret challenge levels, etc. Just make $60 worth of content, and the Pac-Man name sells itself. Also, might as well bring the mobile Pac-Man game to console without being a "Gotcha" game. Pac-Man on mobile is full of content that I'd happily pay $10 for without the microtransactions.

    StarFox: I know they have "Modern" StarFox games, but they suck, so make it a game like Splatoon, a 4 vs. 4 competitive death match game, but with Arwing fights. Be able to land on planets to use the Landmaster. Dive underwater for sea combat. Even be able to jump out of vehicles to travel on foot with your blaster (you'd be able to hide better, but you'd have almost no defense against vehicles). The game would be over after all enemies are killed (or "defeated" in Nintendo language) or the timer runs out. Also like Splatoon, there could be a single player campaign that's basically StarFox Assault but bigger. You'd be able to customize your own character (don't even think about it, Furries) in terms of both cosmetic and loadouts for combat.

    Ninja Gaiden: Sekiro. 'Nuff said.
    I'd give anything for my chest to be the pillow you rest your head upon every night. 💜

    Justice, to a Right-winger is punishment.

    This is one of the fundamental differences between right-wing and left-wing psychology.
    This is why the Right is so much more likely to support harsher punishment such as the death penalty and life imprisonment.
    To a person of right-wing psychology, punishment is the goal of criminal justice. It doesn't matter that it has been statistically proven that harsher punishment does not deter crime, as this simply isn't relevant to them.
    Take the execution of Stanley Williams, he was put to death in 2005 with the support of Republican governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger despite writing numerous books urging teens to avoid gang life and even being nominated for Nobel Prizes. To the Right, this simply isn't relevant, as the crime had already been committed, and thus punishment must be carried out.
    I once posted a picture on MiiVerse of Stalin, FDR, and Churchill Miis beating up Hitler in Smash Wii U.
    Nintendo removed it.

    She outright said, "Well I'm not your Princess Peach," so I'm searching for someone that is.
    I have my eye on a very special girl right now, but I cannot make it go any faster than nature allows.
    I don't understand how people can choose to hurt someone else.
    It seems so unintuitive.
    But I guess that's why I feel like an alien. I don't understand normal people.
    Gotta learn three songs in less than 24 hours, and I'll most likely perform them intoxicated. Oof.
    Rumor has it that Twilight Princess and Wind Waker are also coming to Switch (Thank F***), but while you're at it, Nintendo, why not port the 3DS Remasters of Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask (and throw in Star Fox 64 3D as well)? I like the 3DS just fine, but my big gorilla hands prefer the comfort of a full-sized controller!

    My pipedream wish collection would be to see a Ganbare Goemon/Mystical Ninja Collection with all the Famicom, Super Famicom, N64, PS1, GB, GBC games and the DS game included. Sadly, all we have is The Legend of the Mystical Ninja on the VC and Switch Online as well as the crappy GB game. They never re-released Mystical Ninja: Starring Goemon and Goemon's Great Adventure from the N64 on these online services despite the N64 games and the others being the only released Goemon games outside of Japan. It sucks because the N64 games are some of my all time favorite games.

    Like, I have the original physical copies of these games and even The Legend of the Mystical Ninja CIB in box in perfect condition almost sealed. But I want to see these games notably the N64 ones get re-released to be preserved.
    F*** Covid.
    I need physical contact.

    While I am very hedonistic, I AM searching for a more permanent life partner to bear my children.
    I'm polyamorous, so it's hard to find committed partners open to my love style. Even recently, I was hurt by a girl I loved while simultaneously loving another. It isn't all about multiple sex partners, but also about having a network of people that care about you to the extent that they will call you their boyfriend or husband.
    Dating in general has been hard during Covid, and my body is very accustomed to being able to physically embrace another human being. I miss that feeling of warmth that holding another person brings, and while it is a physical pleasure, that pleasure contributes to my emotion stability and satisfaction.

    You have to bare it especially for someone who has a lust for life and love. The side effects of Covid are really dire for the Hares among us.

    I know its about the physical and emotional connection that having someone in your corner gives you but you have a duty to keep your love ones safe at all cost during this pandemic. It sucks and a lot of people want to get back to their lives. But due to actions of selfish people they made the pandemic even worst by violating safety guidelines. You can use video calls if you want to keep in contact with your group its just very ill advise to go out and socialize at this time. Because the Covid virus has mutated into a much more dangerous strain.

    Though on a side note it is a rarity to encounter a hedonistic. Mind if I ask a few questions for curiosity sake?

    Except Sakurai openly said that Rex would've been Fighter #71 had he had more development time and specifically said that his Mii Costume was a consolation prize.

    Maybe from that last time, but it is rather odd that he would have time for two different Xenoblade reps if that was the sole issue and I'm not sure why he couldn't have held off on implementing Rex until now. The only thing I can come up with is that they decided then to shelve the idea of another Xenoblade rep, but then changed their minds for some reason.

    Honestly, I think Sakurai chose Pyra/Mythea over Rex because of more diverse moveset potential as Sakurai said in the Terry Presentation:

    WOO! After 90 minutes of refreshing, I finally got my Mario 35th Anniversary pins!
    Now I can watch the Nintendo Direct peacefully.
    Hoping for Crash, predicting Monster Hunter.
    Just came up with a new hook for a song:
    Lyrics:
    If you're hungry enough, you'll grow a taste for blood.
    If you're thirsty enough, you will drink from the mud.
    If you're lonely enough, you'll call anywhere home.
    If they leave you behind, you will roam.
    My crush enjoys when I tell her how beautiful her body is, but right now, I need her heart to comfort me.
    Am I the hero of my story, or the villain?
    Am I the hero of my own story, but the villain of another's?
    People say that Captain Toad can't be in Smash because he can't jump as if Inklings didn't explode if they touch water in their main games.
    To whomever's deleting my cries for help, I have nowhere else to go. I have no irl friends. I don't even know if anyone here considers me a friend here. I really can't infer that. Every relationship seems parasocial to me. I hate even myself. I hate every neuron that I am trapped with. Therapy hasn't helped for over 20 years. I wish I was a better person. I wish I wasn't damaged. I wish that perhaps there is a soul inside of me to be reborn into a better place where I don't suffer.
    I wish I had friends. I wish I had a loving family. I wish I had someone that wanted to make babies with me. I wish I had a future to look forward to. Every night, sober or intoxicated, I lie in agony. No one loves me. No one feels lost without me. I don't even like myself.
    I pray that there's a better place for me, but even oblivion is better than the hell I live in.
    I love you all, even if you don't see me. My bonds to people Are distant and parasocial. If there is a god, I wish to return for their factory to be repaired or replaced. I wish I could've been a better person.

    Ultimately, I wish to be loved, to be told that I'm irreplaceable, and to feel "at home" somewhere, whether that home be a physical place or an online community.
