I liked where Sakurai addressed how difficult it must be to design and name a full cast of distinctive characters for each installment in the Fire Emblem series. The one I own (and would like to complete) has a female lead named "Celica", which just makes me think of the car and the paragraph of White Noise that uses that name as a punchline
NieR Automata (Route C ending, spoilers)
NGL, when A2 passes through a door in the massive artificial spire to reveal a perfect copy of the library from the original NieR I was ecstatic. It's a cheap move but I fell for it completely. I imagine it's what people in other fandoms think when they see Darth Vader's helmet in a film trailer or whatever
Assuming Picarto continues to behave well, I'll be going live at the top of the hour with more NieR Automata: https://picarto.tv/lobst 🔸
@Moot Only for Gex 3 in Europe, but I was also surprised to find it out regardless
@sutter The "until we meet again" with Dr. Frasier at the very end is iconic to me; since her visiting happened under such potentially catastrophic circumstances the exchange is far more in keeping with a LARPing crew welcoming back a former member who left
Tiny Computer Chronicles (RPi4 Saga)
Oh hey, the 40mm fan grill I eBayed for $2 arrived from Shenzhen today! It's a little crooked but still fits great and adds character; I also did a half-ass job of removing the SSD label and added a sticker from my friend Chu. The Katrina evacuee in me is a fan of having all this in a pocket-size form factor; 240GB is roomy for Raspbian, but I anticipate adding even more storage to it as I upgrade the storage in my other devices (like my PC and Switch).
omg @unicorn drew my red panda gal Noelle and she looks gorgeous! Really captured her aesthetic. Thank you!
a kind soul uploaded fresh EverDrive Packs to archive.org, get 'em while they're hot~
EverDrive Packs contain all-ish game roms for any given console, neatly organized, *plus* optional, highly curated "game collection" folders that gather, say, all games with co-op, all games based on movies, a media site's top 25 underrated games on that system, etc.
you can build the packs yourself from No-Intro romsets...
but with these downloads that hard work's done 👍
Pokémon Direct 1.9.2020
The thunder of "there's a new PMD" was stolen for me by the fact that it's a remake, but Rescue Team is a great game and this ensures it won't be trapped on the GBA or DS (which both have clumsy interfaces these days, especially now that the DS hardware is on its way out), so not only am I OK with this, I hope they do it with Explorers as well
Good on them for letting the Sw/Sh Expansion Pass take the place of this year's main-series release, also
