MotherKojiro told me about this hack, and I think it's really neat so far. I love these dark color palettes... especially the black and pink combo.

HOI-YA! *cliclicliclicliclicliclicliclicliclicliclicliclicliclicliclic*

Anyway, that one reminds me of that few weeks when everyone was posting those "Cursed Images with Earthbound Music" videos, like it was the new Steamed Hams. That one didn't quite get as far as reworking an entire Pink Floyd album and calling it Steamed Side of the Ham, but it did at least get a little ridiculous.

I mean, the first thing I did was rescue her from a tower, where she was kept by some giant crow monstrosity, and then while I was trying not to drown, she ABANDONED ME TO GO SING AND DANCE. All we needed was a bunch of woodland critters crawling all over her, and it would've been complete. Even her facial expressions are right out of a Disney cartoon. Every time she makes a weird one, I can't help but yell out [Link] SHE'S EVEN DRESSED THE SAME. Infinite doesn't have much of anything to do with the other BioShocks, so it wouldn't be completely off-the-wall to try them afterwards, and in some ways, they're a lot better; you get to explore more, the plasmids (vigors) are generally more useful, and enemies are more interesting. The world is, too; I thought I'd really love the sky world, but its beauty just can't compare to the bottom of the ocean. The shooting is better in Infinite, but it sucks that I can only hold 2 guns at a time. In any case, I think one-and-done is a good approach to the series; I found out that they're available at GOG, but at present, I just don't feel the need for DRM-free copies.

RIGHT!? I got a notification in my itch feed, and I can't wait for the finished game. The only thing is that in my mind, it is so inextricably tied to that Grounseed song that the music is going to be jarring, no matter how good it is. Usually, Dungeon Crawlers aren't my thing, but I think this will be a notable exception.

I know how to change batteries without soldering, it's actually not that hard. First you'll need to have the security bit to unscrew it (they're $5-$10 on eBay I think), you'll need some electrical tape to bind up the new battery, and you'll want a small flathead screwdriver or something to pry the old battery out. It's not rocket science!

I believe the shirt came with a sort of special edition of the game back then. At least, that's what Wikipedia says, but it doesn't give a source. I'll bet you could special order it through Nintendo too.

I have only spent $200+ on a single game about four times in my life, but I may make an exception in this case because the game is so special to me. But I have to be patient because auctions for video games have become so rare on eBay, with uncommon stuff it seems like people always post at buy-it-now. There's a chance it won't even go up to $200, I got the Spain big-box Secret of Evermore release from an auction that wound up much lower than I was expecting.

I walked in at the conclusion of that, what a mess. (I put a lot of time into that last post too, damn it. )
Bullet points then, since you more or less got what I said last time:

1. You'll be happy to know that if you pre-ordered DOOM Eternal, if you do decide to get it on Steam after the fact because to Hell with Bethesda's launcher, any goodies will carry over. There's a button in the options called "Consolidate Entitlements" (interesting way of putting it). Pretty sure that only applies to pre-order stuffs, and not what's in the Deluxe package. Don't quote me on that though.

2. The Jaguar port of Doom is where the simplified versions of the maps were born. Unfortunately, most of the console ports that followed were based on that version, including the maps, even when it wasn't necessary to boost FPS.
Some of the ports that use the Jaguar maps do have a few levels unique either to them or a couple of other ports, like PS1/Saturn. The first Xbox port has at least one secret level of its own, accessed from E1M1, interestingly. I want to investigate more of these.

3. Blood is more playable now than it ever has been, thanks to Fresh Supply. No fuss.
They went the extra mile with the options menu, too. When I get around to playing attempting its "Well Done" difficulty, I'll probably switch from CD audio to MIDI, since the soundtracks are completely different. The coolest addition to the options I think is the ability to fully customize the difficulty, by changing the behavior of the enemies. Doom's "Project Brutality" mod has a similar feature (or was that Ultimate Doom Visor... I don't recall, I mix them together and recommend both).

"VGM: [Link] "

I forgot that the order of the songs on GBA is shifted one to the left.
Reminds me of how the SNES port of Wolf 3D replaces E1F1's song with E6F10, a song that only appears in that one secret map. (I do like it though.)
It was nice to finally hear Hangar, strange as it may be. If I recall, apparently the GBA port uses the music that would have been in the Jaguar port, if the Jaguar port had the resources to play back its own music. (The music is there, it just doesn't play.) They probably wouldn't have sounded alike but it's the same arrangement... I might be misremembering that. Citation needed.

Okay those weren't bullet points at all. Must be the extra coffee today, I'm on a roll. *twitch*
