Hello everyone. Trying out this federated social network thing as an alternative to Twitter, because I am not a big fan of all the EvilCorps™ that reign the interwebs today.
I'll probably begin by cross-posting whatever I publish over there, just to get an idea of how things work here.
Anyway here's a pic of one of my modded Game Boys.
If anyone is interested, you can buy the Queen's Wii on eBay today. It's not even an official Nintendo variant, though. 😂
I actually like the Vita but more often than not, it seems that the system lacks the necessary performance to really deliver smooth and consistent frame pacing, paired with responsive controls. What a bummer...
Just tried out my newly acquired physical copy of Bastion for #PSVita. It targets 60 fps but very rarely gets there. Input lag is not an issue as with Ratchet & Clank, but it's a pretty inconsistent experience. Meh... I'd rather play it on PC or Xbox then...
Not a big fan of games where I'm constantly told what to do. Go there, kill all enemies, fetch me 10 dead chickens... #Metroid Other M is one of these games. I thought, Samus was a bounty hunter. Why does she have to follow orders? This somehow feels out of character to me ...
Some day, I hope to make an entire ritual out of it - with japanese tea ceremony levels of ritualness!
Today another local #GameBoy deal showed up and since the seller didn't live far away from me, I thought why not combine this with a nice biking trip. Worst case, I'd get some exercise and save on gas. Took some photos of lost places on the way.
Today I'm sharing my public retro gaming and tech-related YouTube playlist to which I'll be regularly adding videos which I'm particularly interested in:
Made it through Kirby's Dream Land 2 today. I must say, it has some of the most well-designed and polished boss battles on #GameBoy I have seen up until now.
This thing was part of my latest #GameBoy haul - behold, the Power Grip (by SpeedLink)... I have to say, it sits comfortably in the hand, but I think it looks quite silly. Sadly, it's missing the charger.
Interesting method to measure input lag "manually" in controllers and modern displays using the 240p test suite described by "NerdlyPleasures".

I don't toot much. Promise.
