80s era workout gear is basically indefensable stylistically. It’s about a step shy of clown motley. That said, I’m not going to insult your collective intelligence by pretending it isn’t one of my many fetishes. I saw a chance to indulge myself and I took it. I regret NOTHING. Both outfits are references to old cartoons, though slightly altered in some ways. Bonus points for anyone who can name the sources. I like this better than the movie quote thing because you can’t just google this shit. I don’t draw well enough for the image search to work, I bet. XD
I talked myself out of downloading Paper Mario Sticker Star. I just can’t stand the fact that it’s the same price as retail. It’s unconscionable. As much as I’d like to not have the extra mass in my way I just can’t stand it.
If you can also get a code for a free copy the DL version you get a copy of old school Donkey Kong. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUCK! Really? Donkey Kong. That’s your bonus game? Out of the entire library of possible games you choose the oldest lump of turd this side of Pac-Man? It’s like Nintendo just wants to hatefuck everyone who ever paid money for their products. If nothing else they could give people a selection of shitty old games to choose from. That’d at least be like choosing the hand that’s about to slap you. So you could go for the off one.
One of these days they’re gonna send me an email that’s like “Hey, we’re giving all out fans a free secret download for Christmas!” then, on the day they send it out I’ll download it, and it’ll be Startropics. That would actually be so perfectly awful I wouldn’t even feel bad exactly. It would somehow confirm that the universe is, in fact, under the control of a diety with a sense of humor I can understand and get behind.
Now I hope that actually happens. Even if it means having to have Startropics inside my DS for a few moments. Before I transfer it into another memory card, light it on fire, and piss it out.
I didn’t care for Startropics.
I still don’t understand how it is that Nintendo doesn’t have their entire library available for download. When I was working at Gamestop I knew a guy who had every SNES game on his PSP. It seems like if a dude in his basement can figure out how to do that then a company with millions of dollars aught to be able to pull it off too. Even if they intend to ask for absolutely ridiculous amounts of money for them. I should get a spare PSP and see if I can do that. It’s not ideal, but it woudl certainly be better than rebuying my entire library every software cycle for the privilege of playing shit I already own in a way of my choosing.
I’m feeling cranky tonight. Now I will look at Jo in legwarmers and be happy again.
