@signalstation I just remember “so that’s where my hat went,” “the Scrabble letters B, O, A, E, W, and R,” and “I don’t know, but it’s still moving”

@darius @aparrish but the sort of nerd who could do it for free is generally also the sort who’s become personally identified with the power and license to run their computer as long and hot as they damned well please

@signalstation are you familiar with the random table of owlbear stomach contents from the Story Games Names Project?

@signalstation the part where it’s your turn to get your ass kicked by the protagonist represents the night you finally get yourself to the gym

Waluigi’s Mansion could be the reverse-Scooby Doo game I think we’ve discussed here before - try to make it look like there are ghosts and scare Mario and his friends away

Luigi wouldn’t trash a hotel unless he had good motives, though. Although that makes me think, hapless destruction should enter the diegetic level of games more often. I want the GTA where you go from nobody to the most feared gangster in town, entirely accidentally and mostly without noticing.

I mean, they could have saved the dev budget they spent on all the ghosts, I would have played it if it was just Luigi Trashes A Hotel

I am still drawn to every LEGO set that looks like a mech even though they’re all essentially the same

Per last night’s half awake dream times, a good trick in the zombie apocalypse is to cross a river and wash away any pursuers. Correspondingly, don’t hang out near the shore because that’s where they all end up. Hope this helps

@signalstation it’s unrecognizable. You could be America’s first choice for anything

why are you still reading, language is a trap, go bay at the moon in your native guttural thoughtless language and be free

@fribbledom Baffled? At this late date?

They’re power worshippers. That’s a lot of the reason why they have the money.

The depression, meanwhile, is about my day job, and it’s been leading me to fantasies about becoming a professional streamer of a game I’ve yet to get my hands on.

Something’s not healthy about this. Being excited about a thing is okay, but this sort of all-encompassing tool feels a little like moral hazard. I don’t want to disappear, even into this.
