Your favorite character (that's not in Smash Bros) is added to the next Smash roster! How would you react?

I care not how overpowered or underpowered she happens to be. I would play her through every game mode until I understand every possible trick I can do with her.

… And then I’ll play the rest of the roster, some more than others depending on who I like, but she’d totally be my most used character.

This is sparkle poi! Poi was created in New Zealand by the Maori people. It is the rhythmic spinning of weights on string. Modern versions include glow poi and sparkle poi. Glow poi uses LEDs or glowsticks to create colorful patterns, and sparkle poi uses lit steel wool. As the steel wool burns, parts fly off causing the effect seen above. I would guess a blue filter has been added, as it normally looks like this


it may be steel wool mixed with like copper chloride or something. still pretty cool

I wanna see foxbear do steel wool poi : D


Yep, that looks like Satyr Firedancer all right!

I know it’s almost Easter, but it’s been snowing all day and my brother couldn’t get to his classes for the day.

I swear spring and winter have been duking it out like mad this year.

… Welcome to Minnesota.

I know not all of my friends are as interested in game design or in Extra Credits as I am, but I know that quite a few people I know love video game remixes. I have a feeling y’all will love this show.

New episodes will come out on Tuesdays, and they’ll be hosted on Extra Credits’ YouTube channel. I recommend taking a look—they’re bound to bring some game remixers to your attention you didn’t know you’d love!

Yeah, my dreams are weird sometimes.
… In case anyone’s wondering, the fish didn’t realize that being eaten would mean dying. Or have any concept of what “death” is in the first place.

League of Angels: Quick Review

I recently got an email saying that if I try playing League of Angels for free, I could get a $3 coupon in the email. I’ve seen a lot of ads for the game, and they’re pretty much all “male fantasy” kind of ads, which usually tell me a game isn’t worth even taking a look at. Still, I figured it couldn’t hurt to spend one hour on it to see what it’s all about.

When playing this game, it quickly becomes apparent that’s it’s just another extortionist Facebook-esque game that tries to pump you for as much money as it can with the illusion that you’re playing a game. There are a number of energy systems that allow you a number of free attempts or rewards per day, then you have to pay if you want more of them. There are just as many things that require premium currency (diamonds in this game’s case) which I never earned one of in the game during my hour of play.

It would be one thing if the “freemium” model was all that was wrong with it, but it’s something I wouldn’t even call a game. Gameplay for me consisted of clicking on things the game told me to click and watching things happen. And when I say I was clicking things the game told me to click, I mean that literally. When you unlock something new, it often makes that object glow on the screen and the icon moves a bit until you click it. Or an orange box with the word “Click” in it appears with an arrow pointing at the obvious thing you should click.

Gold: Long hair takes time to grow and takes a lot of effort to keep clean and healthy. Girls who are willing to put in that effort are rewarded, because long hair is beautiful.
Crab: And ponytails are amazing because you can get beautiful hair with half the effort
Gold: Plus they just look amazing for some reason. X3
Crab: I swear [women keeping their hair short and messy] just seems to be part of negative natures...
Gold: Which is weird, because it's not like girls naturally grow hair faster or anything!
Crab: ...Actually is this a fact or something you just think it works that way? Cause I dunno if they do or not!
Gold: No, this is like the one time in 10 years where I've said "it's not like" and actually meant it's NOT like that!
Gold: Y'know... Did I ever tell you that an office I once worked in had their own Starbucks in the office building?
Crab: .-.
Crab: I've been to a church with several coffee shops, a parking deck, and a bookstore inside of it...
Gold: ... You win
Crab: lololol

So I just finished fixing my Gamecube’s diskdrive and played some Megaman X: Command Mission, it works great and I’ll have a bigger post on it tomorrow!

So I happen to have this on my hard drive. Ever wonder what Caramelldansen sounds like when it isn’t sped up? And is in English?

Actually, those girls sound pretty nice…
