Reminder of how to send me a bit of cash if you are willing and able 

I made a Ko-fi. Do you like my posts? Have I done anything for you or anyone you care about that you found particularly valuable? Do you also think it would be neat for me to get my legal name and gender marker in order? Do you love when I can afford food and transit and want to be a part of that? Feel free to send me money here.

Battle.net; request to add me 

So, apparently the Internet is garbage and I would love to get some of you critters playing Diablo III or Overwatch with me.

Please DM me your Battletag! (My account isn’t notifying me of friend requests. I dunno why.)

Gaming; tech nerd junks; exotic architectures 

Does anybody else miss the good old days when video game consoles were all using microarchitectures that you otherwise could mostly only find in game consoles and supercomputers?

Some of my faves:

  • Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, and GameCube: PowerPC
  • PSP, PlayStation 2, and Nintendo 64: MIPS III
  • Dreamcast: SH-4
  • PlayStation: MIPS I

Super Mario Odyssey critique 

I love this game. Don’t get me wrong.

There is a huge problem with the movement as Mario, though. He feels so slippery. He accelerates slowly, changes directions slowly, and cannot stop quickly. I barely even can tell the difference between when I am supposed to be on a slippery surface and a regular one.

This wouldn’t be as big a problem if it wasn’t for the fact that there are several mandatory platforming segments where you need to navigate narrow pathways at fairly high speeds.

On top of that, I find myself fighting with the camera a lot. It seems to pan too slowly for rapid platforming and action segments. Oftentimes, I find that I am just impatient in games like this and rushing too quickly when I run into problems like that, but the action and platforming frequently requires fast reflexes.

I feel like this engine was built for a slower-paced, methodical platformer than they ended up creating. Especially in the last few worlds.

Resident Evil games I think you should skip out on as a Resident Evil fan; list 

  • 2000’s Resident Evil: Survivor
  • 2003’s Resident Evil: Dead Aim
  • 2003’s Resident Evil Outbreak
  • 2004’s Resident Evil Outbreak File #2
  • 2011’s Resident Evil: Mercenaries VS.
  • 2011’s Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D
  • 2012’s Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
  • 2012’s Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection
  • 2012’s Resident Evil 6
  • 2016’s Umbrella Corps
  • 2020’s Resident Evil 3

Play them if you wanna. I think they are p bad and definitely not good starting places for the franchise.

If you wanna know my recommendations for good places to start if you are new to the franchises, here are my faves and some notes on their ports:

  • 1996’s Resident Evil (especially the original PlayStation version)
  • 1998’s Resident Evil 2 (1998) (the PlayStation or Nintendo 64 ports are both p good)
  • 2002’s Resident Evil (Remake) (the GameCube one)
  • 2005’s Resident Evil 4 (the GameCube original is more actiony and has better graphics, the PS2 port has more content and a little more horror-y feel, and the Wii port has an interesting control scheme and the PS2 additional content)
  • 2019’s Resident Evil 2 (any port should be fine, but love yourself and don’t get an Xbox One please; it has no games)

lukewarm take; critique of gaming culture that is once again particularly relevant 

Gaming hardware manufacturer: *produces loud and obnoxious toy-looking thing that they expect you to put on display in your living room*

Gamers™: *drool over it*

Regular People: “What even is this? Why is it that ugly? Can I hide it or something? Shouldn’t my gaming hardware be an appliance, not a fixture?”

Fallout series; video game hot takes 

I take back what I have said in the past about Fallout: New Vegas. It isn’t necessarily worse than Fallout 3. It’s simply not substantially better and massively overrated.

Fallout 3 is a good game. Fallout: New Vegas is a good game. They’re roughly on par.

Instance recommend request 

I am meeting increasingly more people who are looking to get off of “traditional” corporate-run social media.

I am curious if anybody has recommendations for strongly anti-fascist instances open for registration at this moment to give to friends seeking a platform like that.

Isn’t playing a video game, reading a book, or watching a film/series technically just spoiling it for yourself? 🤔

“I’m not trans. I just really like wearing skirts, wish I looked more feminine, love when you call me a girl, and melt whenever people use she/her pronouns for me. Also, I like girls,” said the definitely-a-man who was definitely both cisgender and heterosexual.

trans affirmation; genital mention 

Remember that one’s womanhood is just as valid even if they don’t have a big dick

Friendly reminder that rioting is an important and healthy response to tyranny.

Please don’t forget this and please remind your friends and families if they need reminding.

disordered eating 

Me: *eats, like, 400 calories of tacos a day*

Also me: “I constantly eat too much and it is unhealthy”

PSA/Acvitism Snitch Warning; fedi user who keeps being invited into leftist circles 

Because she is apparently still welcome unchallenged in various leftist organizing circles, I would like to remind you that Laurelai Bailey (@laurelai@starrevolution.org) is a snitch who landed two activists in prison. There are zero acceptable excuses for letting a person who landed an activist in prison hang around your leftist organizing circles.

Like… Whether you believe her alleged victims or not about the several allegations of sexual assault and sexual abuse allegedly commited by her, she openly admits to being a snitch. At least two people have been imprisoned for important leftist work thanks to her “FBI cooperation”.
