Since this is off topic, I will share with you my favorite Newgrounds flash movie of all time. It does help if you're familiar with Silent Hill 2, but it's a riot. There's a bit of blood and mild language, but nothing too bad. www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/334798

OK, today here's some webcomics that need more recognition:
Daily Dinosaur Comic www.qwantz.com/archive/001072.html Its the same comic, the same panels of a T-rex stomping a house etc EVERY DAY, but the words change every time and its still one of the FUNNIEST webcomics ever!
It manages to stay fresh every time, that's how good the writing is! Conversations between T-Rex and God and T-Rex's continuing love problems with Dromiceiomimus are just some the hilights.
And from a link from there, I found Isotown www.isotown.net/index.php A small pixellated town in the style of Simcity, each panel shows a step in the towns growth (scaffolding goes up, a planted tree starts to sprout), but the little stories that go along with the panels give the town great personality.
For example, recently a shop and a house were being built next to each other, and it became a race to see who would finish first. The house team used dirty tactics like vandalism, but the shop team refused to retaliate and managed to win anyway! Recommended for people who have a lot of patience. Start at the beginning of the archive.

That Bitey Castle is awesome! Very atmospheric!
OK, animation sites:
Homestar runner Most of you have probably heard of this one, its quite a popular one. www.homestarrunner.com Basically, its a series of Flash animations about a group of odd characters. Homestar is meant to be the main character, but his antagonist Strong Bad is much more popular, and has a regularly updated show on his own section of the site. Real people email him with questions, which he answers comically.
The site also supports a number of secondary series, usually involving characters invented or imagined by Strong Bad in his show. Its slightly american, but nothing is too confusing for us Johnny Foreigners! And it's hilarious!
Weebl's Stuff Now here's a good one. It's like the ruder, madder British cousin of the Homestar website! www.weebls-stuff.com Basically, the guys just chuck out crazy animations all the time (usually musical), and sometimes the more understandable ones (with a plot and everything!) become series's.
The flagship series is of course Weebl and Bob, about two egg shaped guys hanging out and trying to obtain pie. They love pie. Check out their song parodies - Justin Timberlake's Sexy Back becomes the hilarious "I'm bringing Pastry back!"
Also, there's a series about a guy who stabs people, one about a Lord who dabbles in drugs with amusing effects, and On The Moon with a slice of toast (the king of the moon) and his neighbor, Insanity Prawn Boy.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.

nocturnal YL: I settled on the games I'll showcase for my NinDB Top 25. I've tried a lot of games, but a list of favourites is going to be imbalanced regardless. There are absolutely no NES, N64, DS and original Game Boy games in my list.
Apr 26, 2021 14:41:07 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Given that I just said what my favourite games are not long ago, my list will be unsurprising. Now, should I attempt to rank them? What aspects should I highlight to make them more interesting? Hmm…

Nester the Lark: Remember the "Everybody Votes" channel on the original Wii? There was a section where you could submit your own suggestion for a poll. I seem to recall two of my suggestions being used, but I only remember what one of them was.

Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…
