Let's Smash each other! (on 3DS)

Holy ciribot, I haven't blogged in forever.

I take it that I'm not the only one whose Scary Four Digits progress has been hindered by the new Super Smash Bros. for 3DS. We should get something going, because it's a fun game, and I know a bunch of you have it. Feel free to exchange friend codes, set up matches, or discuss the game.

Right now, I'm having lots of fun playing Mario/Dr. Mario. I put most of my time playing the demo into learning him. I also like Little Mac, being a Punch-Out!! aficionado, but I evidently need more practice to avoid all those premature deaths.

Xbox One = 359 steps back.

That Xbox reveal was underwhelming to say the least. Used game fee? Forget about it. They're going to see that's a mistake. In fact, during the reveal, Nintendo and Sony saw an increase in their stock value, while Microsoft took something of a fall on theirs.

No backward compatibility, the TV supposedly requires a separate device to do it, and you have to pay a fee to authorize use of a game on another console. If that isn't digging a grave for a console, I don't know what is. I see no reason to not get a PS4 instead, other than the fact that it's not backward compatible either, and I still want a PS3 for a lot of JRPGs I've missed out on. Maybe even the Wii U will go places in a year, and it'll find success, like the 3DS did (I got my 3DS a few months ago, and I absolutely love it).

EDIT: So, that's where all the applause was coming from:

EDIT AGAIN: From a Kaz Hirai parody Twitter account, proof that the PS4 is better.

What are your thoughts on this upcoming generation?

S4D: I think I'm going to regret this.

So I had the genius idea of making a 3D game with Unity for this contest. What was I thinking? I don't even have a whole lot of time to do this. It's going to be a hack & slash sort of game, and I'm hoping to have some nice, gritty, demonic enemy designs.

I already started the player model (RoffleWafl, my sprite/texture artist hasn't finished the body and hair textures). I still need to take care of the moving cloth parts of the sailor schoolgirl outfit, which have to be modeled separately. Then I need to figure out how to get that going in Unity. Expect me to take a while to figure this out.

Borderline NSFW, but the top half is almost completely pitch black.


I hate this quarter. It's a good thing it's almost over. The next one will hopefully be easier. Until then, I have my music and moe to keep me going.

And I came across this today, from an Ai Otsuka concert in Osaka that I'd have loved to be at:

"MOU IKKAI!" taken to a whole new level. I fucking love this song.

I'd give you some more updates, but I've been away so long that I'm too lazy to give you all of it. This is probably long enough. You probably didn't miss me anyway.
