PSA you are allowed to enjoy Tomodachi Life and enjoying it or buying it doesn’t make you homophobic or a bad person. But don’t act like its treatment of not including same sex options in a life simulation game (something which The SIMS has been doing forever) is something to be glossed over either - worst of all because it would be unfortunate but not terrible if it were not for the fact that Nintendo constantly patched over things and then made horrendous statements trying to cover it all up. Ahhh yes a “playful whimsical alternate version of reality”…. an alternate reality where same sex relationships don’t exist……….? Really uncool and the PR handled with the situation especially when it came out overseas was terrible. And no, being able to play same sex relationships “by making one of them a girl by gender but making them look like a guy!!” is no amazing breakthrough, that’s still really bad.
I kinda feel that Tumblr gets up in arms about something and then desperately tries to downplay the problematic stuff when it discovers it actually kinda enjoys it? A lot of people were angry about Frozen before it came out for multiple reasons but now on Tumblr all you see are endless powerpoints about why it’s great and how progressive it is, and everyone was boycotting Tomodachi Life until it came out and looked like fun. Something doesn’t have to be amazing and special and progressive to enjoy it, and you don’t have to act like it is to make it worthwhile - just don’t pretend it doesn’t have bad parts too! Idk, just my 2 cents, seen a bit of debate on Tomodachi Life lately. I personally can’t play the game at this point in time because #1 it’s ridiculously expensive for what it is and #2 I really can’t agree with the incredibly gross statements by Nintendo, but I don’t think that means that anyone who does is a horrible person or that they don’t care about issues. It just means it’s a fun game! Just not one I can get behind at this point in time.

Tried out FireAlpaca tonight! Idk why Tabitha happened I’ll blame Holly and I’s replay of Emerald/working on Child’s Game

I don’t normally like being that guy but I (poorly) made lunch and decided to check on that Pokemon comic I made, it had 800+ notes when last time I checked it had about 200 (still amazing!). I just went to get ready to do the dishes about 15 min after that and I check and now it has 1300+ notes! Thank you anyone who’s reading this who reblogged it, I’m glad you liked it!

Another fic I wrote on the plane about Badger and Socket, I’ve been hesitant about uploading it because I reckon it’s a bit OOC on Badgers part, because he’s not actually very shy in this, but he’s probably a lot more comfortable with the Black Ravens? IDK, hope you all enjoy it anyway!

Awww this is really cute! Badger doesn’t really say a whole lot in Last Specter after all so this was plausibly IC for me, I really liked the flow of this too! When I was on the plane I was just a gross tired mess, I could deff not write not one but two cute fics - you certainly are productive!

Petition for Tumblr to stop showing posts from recommended blogs that are actual trash??? Did anyone actually ask for this? The messaging system still doesn’t have a “sent” folder but we get posts from random blogs that are sometimes even on our blacklist shoved into our dash?

Grumpy old man

Ahhhhh what adorable creatures, I love the pink-ish tone to the colours here, it really makes it all pop out! Brilliant!

Experimenting with the new brushes I downloaded. I really like the watercolour-ish effect, and it makes me miss painting. I’m only capable of drawing anyone from MM, apparently. This was part of a bigger thing, but I’m going to post the rest later tomorrow.

I was replaying Pokemon Emerald recently and was reminded of this gem which you can actually see for yourself if you visit the island in the water near Mauville City’s bike road. spectrumv came up with the suggestion to turn this into a comic! I love how childish the original Team Magma and Aqua are, I hope that sticks in the remake.

I thought I’d share what Holly’s birthday cake looked like. Straight outta cakewrecks!

Okaydokay my thoughts on Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy which I played very recently with Holly, just so I can get them down. Disclaimer: I already knew basically all the major things that happen in the game as I’d  been keenly following its release in Japan. I was already very annoyed with what I’d heard. This will obviously contain spoilers, and I’m Miracle Mask biased which might leak in given a lot of people like AL but say MM is not enough like a classic Layton game! Let me know how you received the game or what your spin is on things!

oh no I completely agree about the ‘too many twists too fast’ clause (as well as everything else haha but that especially). it just seemed like chapter four took eons, and then Level 5 realized ‘oh we still have this much plot to hash out but the player’s been playing for a good 7-10 hours by now uhhh….let’s shove everything into the last half hour.” it was just not very good in terms of pacing. 

was I happy I played it? yeah! it looked really great aesthetically (I recorded myself playing a bit with a friend and a lot of it is me gushing about the sprites) and the puzzles were fun! 

was I disappointed? ohhhh yes. the story just didn’t seem up to par with most Layton games and (as you said) verged on the point of plagiarism with the rather obvious nod to Miyazaki

thanks for writing this!  

That’s really true! Chapter 4 had a load of things to do and quirky characers and all that, and then SUDDENLY PLOT TWISTS EVERYWHERE in an incredibly short time. All of them might have worked very well (although I would still have preferred a bit of foreshadowing in the previous games) but as you said, the big issue is the game’s very poor pacing.

I can definitely agree with you on the good points too! There were lots of really cute and funny moments and a few really nice surprise, and the GRAPHICS were so so good (I’d love to see remakes of all the games with that amazing quality and high definition music). And the puzzles didn’t look like they’d been solely ripped from a maths book either for once!

Thanks for commenting, I’ve had heaps of fun reading what other people’s interpretations of the games were (and I’m very glad it wasn’t just me seeing some of the worse things too)!
