One thing that really annoys me is when people debate over video game consoles.
Like, it’s one thing to prefer Microsoft over Nintendo or whatever, but whenever you outwardly express that “Wii is for little girls”, I have a problem. First off, a console is a PLATFORM. It is a COMPUTER. The quality and type of games on it are in no way defined by the console itself.
Let’s take a look at one of the first games for the SNES, Super Mario World.
Super Mario World was only one kind of game, and a very popular one at that.
Now let’s take a look at Donkey Kong Country.
Same console, same general mechanics, but still a very, VERY different game. There is a completely different feel in this game, and different plot and music and humor.
In case that’s not good enough, let’s take a look at Star Fox.
Once again, this was a game for the SNES, but a completely different game in pretty much every aspect. All three of them were very good games, but all very unique in a variety of aspects.
What games “define” a console? The answer is simply, none.
So what makes a console explicitly better than another? It may have more games that you like on it, but that doesn’t mean anything about the console. That’s exactly like saying that a painting is better than another because it uses a better kind of canvas.
I made a “comic”
I’ve wanted to make this for a while.
Dear people who follow me:
Since I do not know a majority of you, (which is debatable, because it says I have 11 followers, yet it only shows me 9?), a majority of you may not know that I am a game programmer, and that I am working on a game called Hello_World!, and plan to be working on it for the next 8 years. However, I was wondering if people would be interested in screen shots or stuff like that? I want to show people it, but it’s a bit awkward, especially this early in to it.
Plus there’s only 11 (presumably) of you, so it’s not exactly a wide audience. But it was just a thought.
No one has experienced true productivity until they have done work while listening to music at twice its normal speed.
Like seriously. It works.
I was on Google Earth the other day and I came across this in sky view:
I zoomed in and noticed this little constellation.
Wow, what a great representation of a small dog. Perfect. Spot on.
The Google Image search is even better XD
Introversion is “the state of or tendency toward being wholly or predominantly concerned with and interested in one’s own mental life”. Some popular writers have characterized introverts as people whose energy tends to expand through reflection and dwindle during interaction. This is similar to Jung’s view, although he focused on psychic energy rather than physical energy. Few modern conceptions make this distinction.
The common modern perception is that introverts tend to be more reserved and less outspoken in groups. They often take pleasure in solitary activities such as reading, writing, using computers, hiking and fishing. The archetypal artist, writer, sculptor, engineer, composer and inventor are all highly introverted. An introvert is likely to enjoy time spent alone and find less reward in time spent with large groups of people, though he or she may enjoy interactions with close friends. Trust is usually an issue of significance: a virtue of utmost importance to an introvert is choosing a worthy companion. They prefer to concentrate on a single activity at a time and like to observe situations before they participate, especially observed in developing children and adolescents. They are more analytical before speaking. Introverts are easily overwhelmed by too much stimulation from social gatherings and engagement, introversion having even been defined by some in terms of a preference for a quiet, more minimally stimulating environment.
Introversion is not seen as being identical to shy or to being a social outcast. Introverts prefer solitary activities over social ones, whereas shy people (who may be extroverts at heart) avoid social encounters out of fear.
THIS IS ME SO HARD IT’S NOT EVEN FUNNY
I haven’t been on Tumblr for 3 weeks, so if you guys wanted me to see something specifically, message it to me. (This means you, Jess)
