I relaunched my website!

I have to say that Mastodon, which I don't use as much as I wish I did, was part of this. It made me realize I want my platform back…

I'd love to see a modern remake of the original Legend of Zelda for the Switch.

Based on the video, Link's Awakening looks like it's going to really be a close remake. They might need to pad out a little bit of story if they wanted to remake the original. Also, the broken English was a just a byproduct of its time, when the localization happened in Japan. The bizarre punctuation though, I can't explain.

This game is infinitely repayable for me.

Link's Awakening is still amazing and I'm really happy that they're doing a remake for the Switch. I've been contemplating buying one, and this might be the thing that convinced me to finally do it.

The end of this game is legitimately kind of sad when everyone Link met just… disappears…

Don't get me wrong. Super Mario Bros. 3 is still a good game. It was amazing for its time, and introduced a lot of essential elements to the Mario canon. But I think its reputation is better than it deserves.

I played through all 90 levels and most are surprisingly short at easy. You can often just run and dodge enemies and make it through a level in no time. Despite the fact that you can use warp pipes to around the overworld maps and skip levels, the whole thing is fairly linear.

Super Mario Bros. 2 has a reputation of being the odd one out of the NES Mario games. I think it has a lot more personality and holds up better than Super Mario 3.

I've been playing lots of my favorite old NES and SNES games and taking screenshots along the way.

The world record for for beating Super Mario Bros is 4m 55s 796ms. My time is probably not quite so good, but I'm sure I can do it in under 10 minutes.

I haven't been posting on Mastodon lately because I had basically all the inisdes of my computer replaced and never reinstalled my client. Anyway, I'm back.

Having a Roomba is like having a little helper elf that cleans your house but you have to constantly save from drowning in the toilet.

I just reserved a fresh turkey from a local farm online, and it occurred to me that as I type this, my turkey is still alive.

I just ordered a hit.

I'm over emoji. I'm all in on hieroglyphics now.

Somewhere out there in the ether, I have a web hosting account with a ballooning Movable Type database.

People complained about the location of the Lightning port on the Magic Mouse 2, but half of every Magic Keyboard and Magic Trackpad I see in an office is plugged in literally all the time, despite the fact that a charge lasts for months.

If they could, people would absolutely be using the Magic Mouse 2 plugged in, 100 percent of the time.

Whose idea was it to make the quick brown fox jump over the lazy dog? Foxes are famously red animals. Dogs are often brown. How did we get to this point?

It’s 10:00 Wednesday night, and I’m racing to finish my early-week podcasts because Thursday morning…

Is there a definitive Mastodon client for Mac? I'm using Whalebird, but it's super Electron-y, and I don't love it. Anything Tweetbot-esque?
