Super Mario Land 2 – Memory Exploration

Tuesday, July 24th, 2018 at 10:30 pm | Video

Retro Game Mechanics Explained is an educational video series from Super Mario World speedrunner Dotsarecool. In Super Mario Land 2, it’s possible to glitch yourself right out of the map and into other regions of the Game Boy’s address space. Wandering around those garbage tiles and randomly flipping bits will usually crash the game, but it’s possible to trigger the ending credits from there. This reminds me of the game-breaking screen warp glitch I played around with in The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening v1.0.

sh/f Super Fireball Battle

Monday, July 2nd, 2018 at 2:12 am | Video

Now that I’ve got all my WordPress posts on Tumblr, what should I do with it? How about I introduce a tool-assisted video Sonic Hurricane debuted at Evo2k10? Evenly matched projectiles and beams clash like it’s Dragon Ball Z. This video got me into Shinichi Osawa’s album The One and the soundtrack to DoDonPachi Resurrection Black Label.

Oddheader – 100 Things You Didn’t Notice in Tony Hawk Games

Friday, June 1st, 2018 at 4:20 am | Video

In the PlayStation 2 era, I spent thousands of hours playing the Tony Hawk games online and making levels and videos. We’d get out of bounds and explore behind the scenes, and sometimes find the developers left some easter eggs for us. Oddheader has compiled the community’s findings into one epic 24-minute video that takes us through Neversoft’s entire run with the series.

The transition from WordPress to Tumblr is about 75% complete. 108 WordPress posts became 120 Tumblr posts (20 are Tumblr reblogs). I lose the mouseover text on images, Twitter embeds, email updates, and some layout control, but most things work and I’ve fixed about a dozen broken links.

Shattered Skies – The End and the Rebirth

Friday, April 13th, 2018 at 9:23 am | Audio | Video

Hello from Tumblr! I’ve been thinking, and I realize that my WordPress blog posts are basically Tumblr posts anyway. I might as well make it a Tumblr blog because I lose almost nothing. I plan to re-make all of my WordPress posts as proper Tumblr posts, properly reblogging the Tumblr stuff this time to comply with the posters’ wishes. For instance, my post for PiNe’s illustrations will become reblogs of every image when possible. Once I learn to Tumblr properly and get my theme and cross-posts working correctly, this is going to be good.

Kaplamino – The blue marble

Thursday, February 8th, 2018 at 1:35 am | Video

Domino builder Kaplamino also experiments with Rube Goldberg contraptions like PythagoraSwitch. Here, Kaplamino challenged himself to launch a tiny blue marble all over a tilted table in using clever magnet tricks. All these unstable setups arranged in 2D make me want to play some Incredible Machine.
