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
Nester the Lark: First, The Pokémon Company gets into trouble with that whole Pokémon Masters EX hashtag business, and now this.

nocturnal YL: That's very embarrassing (and also entertaining). But I wonder why would The Pokémon Company post something they probably didn't make themselves?

nocturnal YL: Got to the ending of Xenoblade. I'll do the post-game contents in Casual Mode since they started to feel grindy. I'll also go back to the parts I skipped (mostly quests and Colony 6); there isn't much reason to play NG+, so I'll just complete the 1st run.

Nester the Lark: I'd like to be playing Fire Emblem Engage, but it wasn't delivered when it was supposed to be, and the shipment tracking hasn't been updated, so I have no idea what happened to it.

Nester the Lark: Times like this make me wonder if Sakurai had the right idea, and buying games digitally is the way to go.
Jan 21, 2023 18:23:18 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Digital is usually more expensive and Switch only supports up to 2TB storage (about 140 to 200 games), but if you want to play games as soon as possible, it's the way to go.
Jan 22, 2023 1:48:00 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know when will I be getting it. I'm still interested, but it's no longer the "pre-order, premium version" kind of interested. These days I order games in bulks, so maybe I'll wait.
Jan 22, 2023 1:49:34 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Finally, an update. It's marked as "out for delivery" again. Fingers crossed.
Jan 23, 2023 12:58:22 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: About the prices of digital games, I often find that when they go on sale, it's usually for very cheap prices. Except for first-party Nintendo games, which rarely go on sale, and not usually for that big of a discount.
Jan 23, 2023 13:01:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: But then, first-party Nintendo games usually hold their value for a long time even physically.
Jan 23, 2023 13:02:21 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Welp, that's 0 for 2 on the delivery.
Jan 23, 2023 23:11:36 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: And it's out for delivery again. Third time's the charm?
Jan 26, 2023 12:54:55 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: And that's 0 for 3 on the delivery.
Jan 27, 2023 9:49:06 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: So, the delivery company gave up and sent the game back to the retailer. My order is being cancelled and money refunded.
Jan 27, 2023 20:41:21 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I've been in contact with a customer service rep from the retailer all week, and they didn't understand why the package wasn't being delivered, either. But they're sending me a $30 gift card for the trouble, so that takes the sting out of it.
Jan 27, 2023 20:43:16 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Still considering the digital option at this point.
Jan 27, 2023 20:53:05 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Went back to my Wii U and downloaded updates / free DLC for games I don't have, in case I want to buy those.
Jan 30, 2023 7:22:29 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Wii U having only 32GB of storage isn't helpful at all. 3DS and Switch are expandable via SD cards, while Wii U only supports USB hard disks. It made sense in 2012, but with SD cards going up to 2TB now, not supporting that sounds silly now.
Jan 30, 2023 7:27:19 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: What started off as me checking what can I do with the Wii U ended up with me just having fun with the system. Also relieved that it still works perfectly fine after 2 years of disuse. Except the Wii U GamePad vibration motor, which now makes weird noises.
Jan 30, 2023 12:43:42 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I actually planned to use a mod to dump my games and save data, so that in case anything happens to it I can move on to emulation (since, unlike Switch, there's no save data backup service). I haven't started doing that, though.
