Pinned toot

Hi, everyone; I'm tarah, otherwise known as lobst. I've drawn a few comics that people have seemed to enjoy, and programmed a game demo that won 10th-place in a 140+ entry game jam despite having no sound. My ability to finish any individual project has been stymied by mental health problems for over a year, but I've been seeking treatment and making progress. I've also been streaming videogames on weekends. Watch this space!

This SHOULD be me for the foreseeable future, unless (of course) they ever decide to add playable Bangaa, in which case I plan to spike this character into the nearest available trash can 🔸

Realized my desire to play FFXIV was partly limited by an unsatisfying character, so I deleted and rerolled; character name is now Harper Miret-Moor on Ultros, fellow players, feel free to add me to whatever ingame friends lists or social mechanisms you find appropriate 🔸

NieR Automata (Route C ending, spoilers) 

Assuming Picarto continues to behave well, I'll be going live at the top of the hour with more NieR Automata: 🔸

Misinfo, :gex: 

maybe the reason so many former goons transitioned is because they kept misreading it as "go back to GRS"

Tiny Computer Chronicles (RPi4 Saga) 

for the one millionth time, i am never changing my browser's default font back from jokerman

(I bounced off of most videogame podcasts because the usual outlets are too focused on the new hotness or the controversy of the week; while there's an appeal to that, I'd still like to reject the notion of any kind of media being inherently time-limited or disposable)🔸

It's a tricky proposition, since games are lengthy/hardware-limited and everyone has their own taste in genre! I'd still accept a show that said "Hey, play the Titanfall 2 campaign, then you can enjoy hearing these charismatic hosts talk about it for an hour", though 🔸

After subscribing to a few media podcasts I've discovered I like consuming culture via a 'reading list', turning it into a parasocial activity I can experience at my own pace. Now I just need to figure out how to work my mountain of unplayed digital video games into this 🔸

omg @unicorn drew my red panda gal Noelle and she looks gorgeous! Really captured her aesthetic. Thank you!

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX 

a kind soul uploaded fresh EverDrive Packs to, 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 

Pokémon Direct 1.9.2020 

my manager recently told me he couldn't find me on facebook. I rose three feet off the ground, my eyes glowing and fingers crackling with arcane energy as I exclaimed "I don't have a facebook."

I know this is the result of not having the correct language fonts installed for Taiwanese-published game, but it looks like Megaman is just screaming uncontrollably here.
