3DS News: Miss Swapnote? There’s MiiVerse at least..
Remember when they (more or less) ended Swapnote ‘cause of pervs showing their junk to kids with it?
Well, with MiiVerse you can now
show your junk to kids post comments and game photos, and also do small scribbled messages online, in kind of a community messageboard thing. I think the canvas is a bit more limited than Swapnote but it’s something; already I see cute drawings all over the New Leaf community.
(It makes sense. With this setup, they can actually ban accounts when people do the inappropriate thing)
Starbound Headcanon: Humans are Pervs
This is just a silly, random headcanon I came up with the other day:
What if none of the species in Starbound are into freaky interspecies mating, except for the Humans..
Humans showed up to the intergalactic scene and were immediately like, “I want to get with that…. and I want to watch THAT to get with that.” and the robots and mudkips and birds and plants and monkeys were all like, “What? Ew, why would we?.”
Those Glitch Brain-Domes
Everyone loves a robot with a braindome, especially Chucklefish apparently, since they made like eight or ten variations of brain-dome as head options for the Glitch race in Starbound (not even counting the uh… Eyeball-domes..)
It really makes me think, since the lore for the race is they’re robots programmed to think they’re medieval people and player Glitch are ones who have become self-aware. I think that’s how it went, anyway.
I guess the easiest way to make a robot self-aware is to just go ahead and put somebody’s brain inside it. Like, would my character have memories of being some other non-robot race? Would they reminisce about having aches and pains and hormones and genitals and such?
Heck, maybe the brain in the dome isn’t the Glitch’s mind at all. Maybe that’s just where they store loose brains they find. :I
I’m nicknaming one of my Pokemon ”Maynguene Banana”.
*scoff* This show is for little kids/girls.
Every time I see some iteration of the above words, I think I die a little inside.
There are TWO things VERY wrong when somebody makes that statement. First off all, is the implication that the media in question is not good enough for adults / boys but IS fit for children / girls to enjoy. So, right off the bat, the person is saying that they see young people as inferiors to older people, or women as inferior to men.
Here’s the thing: Children can only grow up to be intelligent, creative and mature adults if they are exposed to things that are intelligent, creative, or mature. If you determine something to be too unintelligent and too banal for an adult viewer to appreciate, but let your children watch it, they will grow up to be unintelligent and banal. Likewise, when people choose to pawn a bunch of flowery, insubstantial bullshit off on young girls, they really lose their right to accuse grown women of “not appreciating manly things”.
The second thing wrong with the opening statement, on the reverse side of the coin, is the implication that they can’t possibly enjoy something UNLESS it is filled with sex(ual objectifying of women), drugs, and violence. What kind of pathetic, craven pervert are you if you CAN’T appreciate a piece of media because it’s appropriate for a younger audience? Or, how insecure do you have to be that you won’t watch something if it isn’t MACHO enough?
So yeah, if someone derides a piece of media as “being for kids” or “being for girls”, we’ve got a problem. With the piece of media in question AND with the person making the statement.
Wehh. I’ve been working at the cafe in New Leaf for maybe three days tops now and I’ve been trying to figure out each villager’s preferences without cheating by looking it up…
But today the game decided I just shouldn’t have ANY more hints. Customers that have never been in before showing up and only saying they want “their usual”. :[
Oh my fucking god, I just now got the pun behind Luffy’s second and third gear abilities…
He’s a rubber man. He gets all red hot and smokes when he shifts into a higher gear…
HE’S BURNING RUBBER. I feel so dumb for not getting this pun for so long.
Be a Diet Soda Hipster in Animal Crossing: New Leaf!
Do you like your carbonated beverages as obscure as your music? Maybe you just prefer your diet colas to have saccharin for the sweetener instead of more common alternatives. Heck, maybe you just saw it referenced on Homestuck a few times and decided to start drinking it?
I’m referring of course to TaB! Probably the least-known of all Coca-Cola products or diet colas, and now available as a stylish pattern for Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
This pattern will look great hung on your wall or around town (the Coca-Cola corporation will probably not pay you, in bells or otherwise, for advertising to virtual animal homeowners). As an umbrella or hat the logo is less recognizable but it will look incredible anyways. It’s pretty good as-is for a shirt, but if you’d like a cleaned-up version with the logo just on the front, click below:

New Leaf: Where to put police station?
Aah, where to put my town’s police station?
- Immediately behind my town hall, right in front of the river, and just beside my cafe?
- Off apart from all other buildings, near the beachside cliff and behind my fruit orchard?
- As close to the train tracks as possible, between the train station and the event plaza?
I really can’t decide what would be the most ideal placement. It really bothers me that these public works buildings are permanent once placed; the decision would be SO much less stressful if I had the potential to remove or move them afterwards…
