  1. I...I think I saw something in a tweet that is deeply upsetting.

    I feel a little sick. Serves me right for using twitter I suppose.

    I don't think I should say it and I don't know who I should talk to...

    My natural pessimism could just be assuming the worst, I don't know.

    1. PublicEnemy1


      Hey, if you feel uncomfortable in saying it in public, you can DM someone. I'm here for you, and even though I don't know you, I might be able to help. Damn, I wish there was a hug reaction.

  2. I was watching a video and learned something I never knew before.

    You know Tom's screams from the original Tom and Jerry shorts?

    They were performed by William Hanna. The Hanna from Hanna-Barbera.

    It never occurred to me to look that up before.

  3. Based on some stuff I've seen people say in various places, I get the feeling they don't understand or care why those like me prefer to keep real life and politics away from escapism.

    I can't speak for everyone but at least for some of us, it reminds us that the world sucks, people are stupid, life is pointless and it makes us want to kill ourselves.

    I needed to get that off my chest for some reason. Maybe it's inappropriate. I'm not saying I'm planning anything so don't worry about that. But if this gets taken down, I understand...

    Oh, I'm also not demanding anyone keep the political stuff out of the status updates, I'm saying this purely for informative reasons and simply the need to say it.

  4. I'm listening to this at the moment.

    It's relaxing me which is much needed. It's also a reminder that I suck at the harder difficulties.

    Devil Trigger!?

  5. I stopped make status updates about political issues and real life events because they make me crazy, they're more often than not, depressing and other times just f*cking tedious.

    I want to make an exception this one time. Seeing the public react to the tragic events of a Fire Fighter losing his business which was his dream he never even got to open. It was burnt down and looted.

    As of typing this, it's raised above $437,000. I don't know if that'll be enough to try again but it does rekindle my hope for humanity.

      Historically rioting, vandalism, looting, destruction has always been an effective tool for marginalized groups when protesting. Civil rights did it, stonewall did it, they’re doing it in Hong Kong right now. “Peaceful protesting” is not always the solution. After being a bit more educated on that, I’ve personally lessened my black and white view on this subject a bit more and can understand why it’s done. Especially when done against large corporations prioritizing wealth over lives(plus, far as I can tell, none of the targets or Walmart’s mass looted have closed down or doubled down work for employees), and especially when done against establishments playing a role in the oppression and fear permiating these communities. 

      That being said, I think it’s best effectively done when you aren’t destroying local community members local businesses. That really sucks for the guy.

      Gofundme is often a depressing highlight of how many people are needlessly suffering from ridiculous medical bills and countless tragedies, but I think alongside being able to post the bail for arrested protesters, this is one of the brighter spots of the community as a whole coming together and standing directly behind the people affected and against circumstance and oppression. It isn't an endless band-aid solution that can fix all of society's problems by existing, but it's definitely a ray of hope in the dark as far as I'm concerned, and I'm just glad I have a way to actually help out in the first place tbh

  6. I just learned I have 71 followers on twitter.

    Dunno why.

  7. Oof.

    I keep forgetting to use action commands to defend in Bug Fables.

    Maybe if somebody could mod Mario into the party, that'd help me remember. lol

    Haven't gotten far in the game but I'm enjoying what I've played through, even though I have a considerable bug phobia....

    But my performance has been pretty bad so I'd best not use that Hard Mode badge for now. ^^;

    Literally walked into a river when you're supposed to jump over it.

    1. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      I think the characters were designed so as to not put off people who are afraid of bugs, cause let's be honest, bug phobias are pretty common. I tend to prefer anthro bugs over anthro mammals, since I find it kind of fun to see how people turn something as ugly as insects into something more appealing. (Even though I don't really have problems with bugs to begin with.)

      That said, I'm really enjoying the game and its world, though I did have some troubles defending myself here and there. I actually had to force myself to stop playing, as I don't want to finish the game too soon... I'm enjoying it that much.

    2. DanJ86


      The cute designs certainly help for me. I had recently reached the moment of Lief joining the party to fight. They left the boss close to it's original appearance (A big nasty spider.) but still like a cartoon. And yes, it still creeped me out and had me pause before purchase.

      It feels like the developers had found a balance by making some enemies look more like the insects they are based on, it helps identify the bad guys and even add extra dread to a cowardly gamer like me. I'm glad I still bought the game, despite my reluctance.

      It can be fun trying to work out what insect a character is based on. It never occurred to me that Lief was a moth while Vi is pretty obvious.

      Oh, and because this isn't Paper Mario, we have moments of clashing personalities in the party. They are fun to have.

    3. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      Speaking of clashing personalities, I was more than elated to see that overworld "Tattles" on npcs were brought into the game, just like in the previous two Paper Marios. I always enjoyed walking up to characters and having Goombario/Goombella/Tippi, explain who the npcs were, as it added a little bit of worldbuilding.

      But not only was that incorporated, but now each character has their say on the NPC, making for some endearing and funny banter between the main three.

  8. I must have Paper Mario on the brain.

    Check out this absolute legend showing their Paper Sonic concept.

      Sometimes, it's better to remind everyone this is "Sonic" we're talking about. No matter what RPG system you adapt from, speed should be more at the forefront, so no walking Sonic. 

      But regarding a Paper Sonic, a Shell Toss like spindash and Sky Diving like Homing Attack are must haves. I'm also intrested seeing partner characters based on Sonic enimies here, although it'd likely easier to just use the side characters that're there.

    2. Plumbers_Helper


      I think an action RPG would be a better fit for Sonic, but I like what I saw.

  9. Has anybody heard about Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling?

    It visually looks like classic Paper Mario and judging by the synopsis, it might play like it too.

    It's coming out on the Switch in Europe tomorrow.


    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      I bought it for Switch, looking forward to playing it.

      The Steam reviews and Metacritic scores are very positive so far.

    2. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      I pre-ordered it and will be able to play it soon. 

      It sounds like it's right up my alley, a classic Paper Mario style game starring cute anthropomorphic bugs. How could I pass it up?

  10. Okay, so I've got this long video I'm working on and I completed a short animation, I'm now considering other ideas for short animations that could be made while the long one continues to get development. Got one potential idea, not sure on it yet, though. Meanwhile, I thought I'd share some pictures I made that were created due to interactions with others on the internets.
  11. My animation got me 2 "Likes" and a subscriber.

    That's tiny compared to others but I don't care. Me happy. :)

    1. Failinhearts


      Gotta start somewhere! Great start!

  12. I really like drawing Kirby.


    I consider him very easy to draw but also very easy to get wrong. This one took me less than two hours to make.

      Well, the instructions were easy in themselves:

      First you draw a circle,
      then you dot the eyes.
      Add a great big smile,
      and presto! It's Kirbo.

      I find even following the instructions to be much more difficult than it really is. I just can't seem to grasp what I'm overlooking...


  13. I've been so busy working on learning the animation process that I overlooked one major aspect.

    How do I get people to watch or care about what I animate? 😕

    1. Pelvic WOO! engine

      Pelvic WOO! engine

      I'm in the same boat. Been so focused on making pixel art and animation I overlooked this very dilemma.

    2. VisionaryofSUPER


      Persistently have people invade your workspace and talk shit with you until they spread the word of your wonder process.

  14. I did it. My very first completed animation with music and sound effects. 


  15. Here is what I've been promoting over the past week. My very first completed animation. If you're familiar with the Rhythm Heaven series, you might recognise the style and music.
  16. I think the hardest part for my parody animation is going to be arranging the sounds. I've already done most of the drawing required.


    This'll be the last preview of this specific animation. Hopefully, the next time I show it, it'll be attached to a completed animation with sound and music.

  17. Since my first animated video is taking some time to complete, I wanted to push forward with something simple that can be completed before it. I had an idea for a parody and this gif is a preview.


  18. If you are a YouTube content creator, you might want to check this out. It's about a new way to hack channels.

    One of my videos got a comment from this "Logan" thing. I only learned about this because is was being covered by a YouTuber I follow.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Watch. Youtube will just disable comments altogether cause they always know the best answer to everything.

    2. TheOcelot


      Thanks for the heads up.

      Yep I've seen them on some of my new videos. I never reply to those comments. I always delete them straightaway.

      What a scumbag.

  19. So I read that animation sends to have 3 different ideal numbers of frames per second.




    Seeing as I'm being self taught, I figured I'd start with 15. That's what this animation in progress was saved as.


  20. This'll be a little hard to see. I'm trying to workout what framerate is better for my animations.


    This is 10fps.


    This one is 12fps.

    1. Pelvic WOO! engine

      Pelvic WOO! engine

      I think 10 looks better.

  21. I wonder what it could be?

      oh god no

  22. Don't know if anyone really cares. Their was something strange about a The Last of Us 2 feature listed which was making it out that being able to kill dogs in it is a severe moral dilemma that has never been in a game before.

    While the feature is in the game and a choice you can make, it was GameSpot who made it sound like a bigger deal than it actually was.

    I felt like sharing that. I don't really play phone games so I can't discuss Sonic at the Olympics. 😕

      The whole screaming and gushing bout groundbreaking new features that aren't new and are insignificant itself ain't nothing new. We've been through this song and dance before-



    2. DanJ86


      True. They seem to do it in all forms of media. It does bug me as it feels like a disservice of what came before.

      Somewhat related, I have zero interest in anything next gen at the moment. I might just stick to the Switch, old games and maybe become a PC gamer.
