counterfeit games, cracktros, birdsite link for video 

bought a copy of wario land 4 earlier, but declined to check the label too closely, which was a mistake

the other counterfeit carts I’ve owned tried to be as close to a legit release as possible; only noticeable in some cases because newer hardware detected them

this one... this is the first time I’ve seen a cracktro running on the intended hardware rather than just a video of them

returning it tomorrow

podcast recommendation 

I’d like to thank one of the tech podcasts I listen to for introducing me to Two Headed Girl - it’s a trans guy discussing his experiences with transitioning after the past few years, with a lot of material recorded before the official start of the podcast so you can hear the changes to his voice on T during one of them

next gen console leaks, backwards compatibility 

if these leaks are accurate, i wasn't fully expecting sony to go down the route of underclocking back to ps4 pro/ps4 speeds again

it'll still be faster because of the SSD, but it means there's less possibility to improve older games that don't get a patch in other ways

while i expect MS to force higher resolutions on some base xbone games
probably more subject to potential glitches though

tried downloading the local version of ai dungeon last night

it turns out that if you're running under WSL, it can't actually use your GPU power, which causes some problems

homestar runner, ert+y76p 

(actually rewatching virus again, I'm somewhat amazed by how most podcasts i listen to have better audio quality on the voices)

Show thread

homestar runner, on a more positive note, ert+y76p 

what would a more modern take on virus for the web even look like

falling down an infinitely scrolling timeline would be one thing

but there's so much variation in devices that mimicking UI would be hard and playing with the frame would be harder still

mimic a popular website or app and it won't match after a major update
go back and look at the first parodies of youtube
or that ad for wario land shake where the page would break

Show thread

homestar runner, on a more positive note 

the last episode also takes heavy inspiration from "virus", and I'm reminded of just how good that was, and how it could only truly work in its original medium in its original format at the original time it was released (before pop up blockers became truly common)

8-bit is enough just can't get there - whether that's due to limitations of the telltale tool or to pass Nintendo's console requirements

Show thread

homestar runner, transphobia, birdsite link 

replaying through the entirety of the strong bad telltale series over the past month or so, and boy, those sure are some "strong sad is in a princess outfit" "jokes" in that last episode

i mean, perhaps it'd be one thing if it was strong bad only since he's explicitly an arsehole, but multiple characters get in on it

you can't go home again sometimes
but i'd still rather think of this version of the characters

gift art, strong 

an amazing gift from @poetfox, drawn by !

voice assistants, internet of things 

i'm honestly kind of glad that save the basic xbox voice commands when i had the kinect hooked up (i don't have the adapter cable they stopped making) & occasional use of siri when my hands are busy, i have no interest in using other voice assistants much

i've got an echo dot because it was free when i switched ISPs, it's currently unplugged

i've switched everything i can off related to google assistant on my android tv box and whatever my actual TV has

family tech support, but it's not me fixing things this time 

aunt got my grandmother a google nest hub(? whatever the one with the screen is), and hasn't shown her how to use it properly

but right now it's erroring immediately on saying ok google before you can even say the rest of the sentence

i assume a reboot would probably fix it, but my aunt gets funny with trying to help out with anything she's bought

christmas, secret santa gifts 

i got some pride pins and dragons from my secret santa gifts, among other things!

(i already had this particular spyro figure, but now i've got one for my desk at work!)
