Just an idea for a Waluigi’s gameboy game I had a while ago.

In this game you’d control Waluigi and he would be always carring a timing-out Bob-omb which you can throw (the count down is shown at the bottom of the screen), once it’s timed out, it explodes. So you’d have to time your attacks and always keep an eye on the exploding Bob-omb. You’d have 2 hit points. In the first hit (by enemy or timed out Bob-omb), you’d be dizzy for a short time (unable to attack / move), if you get hit again you’d lose a life and start the stage again. I think it would be a nice mechanic for a game. 

Paper Mario The Thousand-Year Door (2004)

Paper Mario The Thousand-Year Door is a role-playing video game developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo for the GameCube. The Thousand-Year Door is the second Paper Mario game. The Thousand-Year Door borrows many gameplay elements from its predecessor, such as a paper-themed universe and a turn-based battle system with an emphasis on action. 

For the majority of the game the player controls Mario, although Bowser and Princess Peach are playable at certain points. The plot follows Mario’s quest as he tries to retrieve the seven Crystal Stars and rescue Peach from the X-Nauts.

The Thousand-Year Door has a unique visual style. The graphics consist of a mixture of 3D environments and 2D characters who look as if they are made of paper. At different points in the game, Mario is “cursed” with abilities that enable special moves in the overworld, all of which are based on the paper theme. 

Mario can fold into a boat or a paper airplane by standing on a special activation panel, and roll up into a scroll of paper or become paper-thin. The game’s environments also follow this theme; for example, illusory objects that conceal secret items or switches can be blown away by a gust of wind due to the environment’s paper-like qualities.

Battles in The Thousand-Year Door borrow elements from Super Mario RPG and the first original Paper Mario game. The turn-based system, in which players select an attack, defense, or item from a menu, is augmented by timed button presses that can result in substantial attack or defense bonuses when performed correctly.

Outside of battle, the game contains some strong role-playing video game traditions. For example, Mario’s strength is determined by multiple statistical fields and status-boosting items that can be used in and outside of combat. The effects of these items range from healing Mario or his partner to damaging the opponent.

adhd michael headcanon dump as promised

  • michael has combined type adhd.
  • leg bounce leg bounce leg bounce.
  • “google, how the fuck do i read?”
  • hyperfixated on video games and old school/retro themed things.
  • he stims mainly by playing with his headphone wires, humming and repeatedly pressing buttons on game controllers (even if he’s not actually using it/playing a game).
  • michael is an angry crier and will cry when he’s frustrated. it takes a lot to work him up but when it happens, he reacts very emotionally. his rsd plays a big part in this.
  • he’s actually a super smart kid but due to executive dysfunction, his grades are pretty average and he’s lowkey given up on trying. his teachers have stopped even asking him for homework at this point and have low expectations for him.
  • getting high actually calms his adhd (it’s different for every person with adhd). he’s able to focus a lot more and relax with it.
  • hyperfixates on songs and can have a single song on repeat for weeks. he also constantly puts songs on repeat bc he gets distracted and will completely tune out the music without meaning to.
  • lowkey has trouble feeding himself and will live off of junk food mainly bc he forgets to get anything proper. 
  • avoids parties completely, not only because of his anxiety but also to avoid the sensory overload that comes along with them.

You’re sitting in class when a piece of folded up paper gets tossed onto your desk. Half asleep, you blink blearily at it before Monty gently kicks one of the legs to your chair. And glancing at him, he smirks before gesturing to the piece of paper.

What is it? He mouths since the teacher is too busy droning on and on.

You shrug before fully sitting up, stretching in your seat and then reaching for the paper. Unfolding it, you scoff at what you see. It’s someone’s lame attempt at a Who’s Hot- n -Who’s Not, pitting the female population of Liberty High against one another. And not one to give these type of things more than a second glance, you crumble up the piece of paper and walk it over to the trashcan.

8BitDo controllers work with Switch now ⊟ 

Get the 4.00 firmware update here, then set the controller to Switch mode (I didn’t know how the different modes worked on these things until just now), and you can be playing Switch games with whatever 8BitDo bluetooth controller you may have lying around! 

My NES30 doesn’t have enough sticks or buttons to play Zelda, but it still let me play! Shovel Knight worked great. Best of all, now I have a third controller!

Is this the first third-party controller, released long before the console itself??? Or, rather, the first huge line of third-party controllers, including arcade sticks? This is very cool.

Jason, Percy, and Capes

Or; Bi Ace Jason and His Journey of Self-Discovery

Or; Jason is Ace and I Am Projecting

So eventually Percy calling Jason “Superman” becomes kind of a thing between them. Jason only lets Percy call him that, and Percy uses it both to kind of tease Jason when he’s being extra heroic and praetor-y, and also as an affectionate nickname for his friend.

One year for his birthday, Percy buys him a Superman cape. He doesn’t wear it often, but it’s big enough that he uses it as a blanket a lot. When they hang out and play video games together, the winner gets to wear the cape. (He’ll never admit it, but sometimes Jason will let Percy win a little easier so that the cape will smell like sea breeze for a while after he leaves.)

A few months later, he sits Percy down and tells him that he likes boys as well as girls. Percy smiles, tells him that’s awesome! and that he does too, and hugs him. Jason hugs him back, burying his face in Percy’s shoulder. They watch a movie that night instead of playing video games, the Superman cape wrapped around them like a blanket where they sit shoulder-to-shoulder on Jason’s couch.

That year, Percy gets Jason another cape for his birthday. This one is just as big, but rather than red, it’s striped blue, purple, and pink. The bi flag, Percy tells him, a huge grin on his face. Then he unfurls it, and Jason sees the crudely sewn Superman logo in the middle. Jason laughs at that, head thrown back and just so damn happy, and Percy laughs with him. Jason refuses to take the cape off for the rest of the day (not that it mattered, since they spent the rest of the day bingewatching sitcoms on Netflix, but it mattered to Jason.)

Sometime later, they’re sitting next to each other on the couch, Percy’s legs flung across Jason’s lap, their video game controllers left on the coffee table from their last round. The bi flag Superman cape is tied around Jason’s shoulders since he’d been the one to blue shell Percy in the last seconds of the race and take first place. Percy leans forward, close enough that Jason can smell that sea breeze that just seemed to follow Percy everywhere, and starts picking at and fidgeting with the edge of the cape. So, if you’re Superman, he begins, nervousness wobbling his voice, is there any chance… I could be your Lois Lane? Jason smiles at him.

Things are going well between them. Dating is fun, even if sometimes their “dates” only consist of lighting a candle on the coffee table as they share a $5 pizza and watch cartoons together. Really, things between them don’t change much, they just get, well, closer. There’s more touching now, and for the most part, Jason likes it. He likes kissing Percy. He likes kissing Percy a lot, actually. And he likes the touching. He likes holding Percy’s hand, and he likes cuddling with him on the couch without fear of it being awkward. He likes when Percy comes up behind him and wraps his arms around his middle and rests his chin on Jason’s shoulder or presses his forehead to the back of Jason’s neck. He likes when they fall asleep curled up together and wake up with their legs tangled and Percy’s head resting on his chest, even if he drools, the bi flag Superman cape wrapped around them. There’s some things he doesn’t like so much, though. It’s nothing Percy’s done, because Percy would never do something Jason wasn’t explicitly okay with, but it’s the thought of it that bothers him. The thought of removing clothes and touching other places that leaves a distinct feeling of discomfort and repulsion in the pit of his stomach.

Unsure of what to do about it or what it means, he does the only thing he can think of and calls Piper. Surely, a daughter of Aphrodite would know what to do. He tells her what’s been going on, and when he’s done, she tells him that she thinks he may be asexual. When he lets out a noise of confusion, she tells him that it would probably be best if he talked to her half-brother Mitchell, since he actually is ace and could probably explain things better than she could. She gives him her brother’s number, and he thanks her.

Jason steels himself for what is to come. The talk with Mitchell had helped, and now that Jason has the proper words to put with what he’s feeling, he decided it was time to talk to Percy about it. It’s date night, which this time means takeout, a “clean linen” scented candle Jason had bought on sale, and a Star Wars marathon. When Percy steps through Jason’s front door, he greets him with a kiss and tells him he needs to talk to him before dinner. Percy nods, then asks if everything is okay as they sit facing each other on the couch. Jason nods, takes a deep breath, and carefully lays things out on the table, metaphorically speaking. He tells Percy about how much he likes being with him, but how the thought of doing… he fumbles for words… more… makes him nauseous. It’s nothing Percy had done wrong, just that this is who he is. He’s asexual, he explains, sex-repulsed. And he feels Percy has a right to know.

Percy has been nodding along as Jason explains things, ending with how he doesn’t think he’ll ever be okay with doing anything much beyond what they are doing currently. Okay, Percy tells him. He’s happy with how they are now, anyway, and he loves Jason so much that as long as Jason is happy, he will be happy, and that he’s happy Jason’s comfortable enough to tell him and that things are perfect as they are, and—

Oh.

He’d said—

I love you too, Jason says, and pulls Percy into a tight embrace for a few moments before pulling back and pressing a soft kiss to his lips. That kiss brakes when Percy’s smile grows too big for it. The rest of date night goes off without a hitch, and they fall asleep halfway through Return of the Jedi cuddled together under both Superman capes.

When Jason’s birthday rolls around again, he’s surprised when Percy hands him a familiar looking box. He opens it, and instead of blue, purple, and pink, the cape he pulls out is striped with black, gray, white, and purple. Percy’s grin is so bright Jason can’t help but smile back. He unfurls it, and sees the Superman logo stitched into it, slightly neater than it was on his bi flag one. He hugs Percy then, and Percy hugs him back, whispering I love you, Superman, into the junction of Jason’s neck and shoulder. There’s a lot of kissing after that. Then, they end up curled in the corner of the couch, legs tangled together and Percy half on Jason’s lap. Jason has his newest cape wrapped around his shoulders, while Percy has taken the bi flag one, and the red one lays across their laps. They talk for hours, about everything and nothing, from some new designs Annabeth has been coming up with to which flavor of Starburst tastes the best. Jason isn’t sure exactly when they drift off, but the last thing he remembers is nuzzling into Percy’s hair and being hit with that sea breeze as if he’s actually sitting on the sand and looking out at the ocean itself, and a passing thought about how comfortable and perfect he feels wrapped up there with Percy and all of their capes.

And THIS is exactly why I love going to flea markets.

I found an authentic, black Wii remote with MotionPlus built inside it… for $2!  Sure, that’s awfully suspicious, especially for such a cheap price… and at first glance, it looked like it wouldn’t work since it was absolutely filthy and whatnot.  Well, like many other controllers I’ve found at flea markets, we took it home and gave it a good cleaning, because over half of the time, that’s all they really need.

Well, guess what?  The remote works perfectly… no, really.  The ONLY thing wrong with it, as far as I can tell, is the + button is kinda stiff… and that’s it.  I just tried it right now (on Zelda: Skyward Sword) and it worked pretty much flawlessly.  Reminds me of when I found a wireless Xbox 360 controller for $4, and all it needed was cleaning and a tiny piece of cardboard under the LB button, and it’s been working great for over a year now.

It’s so silly how these folks just throw away these things or put them up for such a cheap price because they’re either too lazy or completely unwilling to clean them up or put a little bit of effort into fixing them.  But hey… instead of spending $50-$60 for each of these controllers, I now have a perfectly-fine Wii MotionPlus remote and perfectly-fine wireless Xbox 360 controller, and I spent all of $6 on the both of them.  Life is sweet sometimes. :D
