This was an installation at the Musee des Beaux Arts in Montreal this summer. And of course I love how much they resemble a rendering! Just going thru pictures from a summer trip...

How did the Jesus get to the other side? Show more

@bowlercaptain Fixed-- I couldn't figure out a way to make i permanent so I set it up for a year... but... it's permanent. :)

@bowlercaptain Ah! Thank you-- I will fix this. The bundle discount should be permanent IIRC.

WILLOW for NES is fairly decent, expect to grind killing skulls a lot but the game shows a lot of attention to balance and rewards a thoughtful approach.

@timmcconnell Aww hehe :) I have to say I have quite the collection of crap I never use touch or look at-- despite my high minded rules haha

Hey Kacey, Q: Why was the Jesus so angry? Show more

Hint! But i might be wrong too... Show more

The kind of cool thing about buying old games like this, I can just turn around and sell them if I don't want to keep them. That's a really neat way to experience the economy.

(...)
4- Solar Jetman. Ditto, I've always wanted to play this ever since reading about it in Nintendo Power.
5- Willow. Another one I have been curious about for a long time. I'd also love to see the movie.
6- Air Fortress. I have a feeling this one is a little gem, I know it's a multi-modal game which alternates shmup with adventure scenes, like The Guardian Legend but lighter I think.

They were all 10 or 15 each, I think only LotW and Kung Fu Heroes were 15. A fun way to spend $50!

The games I bought, and I want to (and will) play them all:

1- Legacy of the Wizard. One of my favorite NES games, absolutely bonkers epic side scrolling dungeon game with music by Yuzo Koshiro; so happy to own it now!
2- Kung Fu Heroes. Fun 2 player game.
3- Startropics. Never played this, except just a bit in emulator, I know I'll enjoy it!

I went and bought some NES games, I had a gift card burning a hole in my pocket and decided this is the way that would give me the most fun.

Still... my guiding principles for buying anything is: 1) only buy stuff you'll actually enjoy, no collecting for collecting's sake 2) try to pass on stuff you don't enjoy anymore, don't hoard 3) don't buy more than one of anything, if you've already got it you don't need it again.

Maybe also 4) try to give something up any time you acquire something.

Ghengis Khan for NES spoilers. Show more

@draknek (well I prioritize somewhat, but only roughly) one important part of this is that I don't spend too much time/energy thinking about what I should do next, I just pick the top and do it. since it's small enough, usually, I can. I sometimes (often) break down tasks once I start them, too. even if it's something Ill be done in 5 or 15 minutes and am about to do immediately now I still add it to the list. well that's me!!!
PS hi! :)

@draknek I break down the list into tiny bite sized things, really truly tiny tiny tiny, then I tackle them ALPHABETICALLY

HOLY SHIT EVERYONE SHUT UP A SECOND, I JUST REALIZED THAT "UMBRAGE" AND "THROWING SHADE" ARE ETYMOLOGICALLY RELATED

Enjoying Ghengis Khan on NES. Anybody play this, ever? It's my first KOEI game.

@lorenschmidt I think about this a lot, the current situation is essentially:

a) private corps collect and keep a sales tax on every sale, and nobody minds.
b) the government doesn't issue a usable currency, and everybody thinks this is ok.

Kind of amazing and terrible :(

I picked up Genghis Khan for NES, it's the first KOEI game I've played (I think) but I've long been fascinated. So far it does NOT disappoint-- the possibilities feel so organic and it really does feel like I'm playing a story that could go so many different ways.

@lorenschmidt I remember in Thai there is only a word for color-sky (light blue) and color-sea (dark blue) not a common word for blue.
