@starbreaker @ayachan We’re not on the Big Island where this is happening. We’re fine.

@ayachan @KyokiKafuka Are you two OK? I just read about the that happened yesterday.

HINT: If you're standing up for racial minorities in Hawaii, remember the Micronesians!! You're a hypocrtite otherwise.

I want to take time to praise 's support team for their prompt response to my post the other day about their third-party products not working with 's .

My has allowed the issue to go to those with power.

@KyokiKafuka @Yuki_G_t9tK

@ayachan His thesis reeks of that of a typical gamer who feeds on Twitter or the YouTube comments section judging by his lack of understanding technical issues from the use of “marketing strategy” alone. But the concern remains the same. Nintendo just needs to open up about this issue. But I fear they’ll just take the usual route of “saving face” like much of Japanese business.

BIG NEWS!! ​ has released their most recent firmware update for : 11.3.1

Apple has unbricked all phones with third-party replacement screens. Good!! That move was beyond anti-consumerist.

If only ​ could learn this lesson, too...

​'s # Insignia products haven't been working properly with ​'s ​ . When prompted for reasons why, an employee was openly disdainful.

Nintendo has denied third-party support for years. We want answers!! Give us transparency!!



I'm still very nervous about this changing of the proverbial guard, but I tend to trust and thus, I'm going to hold my breath and see what happens. <3

Thanks to @KyokiKafuka for fidning this! ^_^


@Yuki_G_t9tK @juno

I'd like to see him get 30 years. This is unforgivable conduct and he is an a**hole. I want to see his name dragged through the mud for what he's done to the dozens of women who dealt with him.

Next on the chopping block (I hope) would be the likes of Al Franken, Harvey Weinstein, John Lasseter, Matt Lauer and more. Let's hold these a**holes to account!!


@Yuki_G_t9tK @KyokiKafuka

I absolutely *LOVE* science. <3 And this GIF is a perfect representation of it. The Japanese, 「恋の化学反応」, means "Chemical Reaction of Love." It's perfect for me. ^_^ <3

@ayachan @starbreaker @Yuki_G_t9tK Oh of course! But I think it becomes much more toxic when this attitude gets carried over to studying game design. Video games have never existed in vacuum and that's true of every era. Otherwise, you get wannabe developers going "imma gonna make the next Call of Duty" and not improving upon what was already there.

@ayachan @starbreaker @Yuki_G_t9tK I think one unintentional yet dangerous consequence of this fragmentation is that it would encourage younger gamers to not delve into the more important (and influential) titles when studying game design. The knowledge of how systems and game mechanics evolve and every game has influenced one another in some form.

@ayachan @KyokiKafuka @Yuki_G_t9tK No shit. Us older gamers might have the money, but we don't have the time.

@ayachan @KyokiKafuka @Yuki_G_t9tK Seems reasonable to me. One game I'm playing now, Sundered, might have been possible on the PSX or even the SNES or Genesis/Megadrive (albeit on a smaller scale), but I don't call it retro. I assume it's all hand-drawn.

Marketing games as "retro" will turn away new players from great content that is modern in its own right. Can we please *NOT* call games done in 2D or old-fashioned style "retro fun" or other things referencing retro gaming, please? Thanks.
