Thought I'd bump this topic, as I have a new favourite TV Show! It's on in the UK on BBC2, Thursday at 9.30. It's called The Peter Serafinowicz Show, and it's one of the funniest things evar!
Not heard of him? He was in Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, was one of the writers for Look Around You, and provided the voices for Darth Maul in Star Wars Episode I, and Darth Chef in South Park (when he becomes a raging paedophile!)
Anyway... there's a load of YouTube videos of the show available, so I thought I'd share my favourite bit - Butterfield Direct!
He's wearing a fat suit, if you don't recognise him. And if you have some time to spare, watch the first series of Look Around You - each episode is only 10 minutes long, and hilarious! It's a rip on old science shows shown in Britain in the 70's and 80's. Module 1. Maths Module 2. Water Module 3. Germs Module 4. Ghosts Module 5. Sulphur Module 6. Music Module 7. Iron Module 8. The Brain
Yes, the whole show is basically ripping on TV shows and movies, and it's absolutely hilarious! He's so good at noticing the little things that make the parody pixel-perfect, and then mixes in really stupid jokes ;D
I just found something that's worthy of bumping this topic.
A friend of mine just introduced me to a cartoon called Usavich, which is a computer generated cartoon done in an old-timey American storybook art style. It aired on MTV Japan and it features two rabbits--Putin and Knpehehko, who are stuck in a Russian prison. And this hobo is HILARIOUS.
Okay, there is this guy on YouTube called Liam Kyle Sullivan. May I add, he is a comedic/musical genious! ;D He's really famous on the internet with his vid "Shoes". Here are his mainstream "Kelly" videos:
Shoes This one looks a bit old, and the beginning is a bit cheesy, just ignore that. The music video is hilarious! ;D Text Message Breakup This one has a much funnier beginning, as well as an awesome music video! Let me Borrow that Top This is possibly the BEST Kelly vid, as well as the newest! The beginning is long, about 4mins, but the music video is worth it so much! ;D
nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?

nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.

nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?

nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.

nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.

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.
