Could we please change the name of the Haha reaction back to "Funny"
There are so many different tiers of amusement, both above and below that which would accompany a "haha". Obviously, this goes for WF post reactions, too and also, "haha" next to the cry-laughing emoji looks really dumb
does anyone know how I can get my hands on the old Android emoji's, the ones they've apparently gotten rid of in favor of some more universal (read: bland) updates? I've got some Lo-Res JPEG's on my PC already, but I want HQ copies if I can get them. These loser journalist sites are somehow able to get them, so how do I do that?
One of my favorite le monke moments of the gaming industry was when Rare was showing off their working prototype for Donkey Kong Country, and the executives went over and checked to make sure they weren't cheating by having a hidden IBM computer behind the scenes running SAWCH STUHNNING AWNBELIEVABLE GREAPHICS
I wonder where that mini-trope of Volcano music using Xylophones comes from. Not even Marimbas (because obviously that's due to Hawaii being a thing), but xylophones specifically. I've heard this phenomenon from two completely unrelated games, and I'm sure they're not the only ones that do this.
You know-- it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if at least one of the songs from Wario Land: Shake It! was inspired by Duran Duran. In particular Electric Barbarella feels like it could work as the Exploration theme for that one futuristic level.
One of my favorite little things you see in video games is when the terminology is very obviously just a real-life English word with some bits sawed off or changed to a different letter. Metroid is the prime example, here. Crateria = Criteria, Varia = Variant/Variable (in reference to its all-purpose environmental capability), and like, Norfair is literally just "Not fair" but someone's finger was a couple millimeters too far left of the T key.
Track unrelated No, that pun actually wasn't done on purpose-- the fact that it was coincidental is the reason I'm keeping it in.
I discovered that I accidentally recreated that screeching sound from Fist of the North Star using Subtractor in Reason. .....wait a minute, since I have control over its pitch as well, and as such can remake the "KEOWAA" from Dragon Ball, does that mean I've essentially unlocked The 80's Action Anime Sound Effect
So I came across this:
(Don't ask how; long story.)
It made me think: have you ever used a Yoshi's Island soundfont for one of your covers? The soundfont of that game is very suitable for making covers.
