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.

Really Bad Chess

Friday, December 29th, 2017 at 10:30 pm | Game

Really Bad Chess is a randomized chess game for iOS and Android. Both sides often start with several bishops and knights up front and multiple queens in the back. Never mind protecting all your pieces; both players’ material is going to get bodied for free.

When not occupied with yet another mobile game, I’ve been distracted by the hallway thing in the background, bootleg Famiclones, current events, and feeds getting added, dropped, and shut down. If you want to see more of the kinds of stuff I post, I suggest following TwistedSifter and Something Random.

I haven’t done one of these artist posts in over a year. Let’s fix that with PiNe. PiNe delivers vivid scenes and cool character designs in a handy RSS feed.

Trick or Treat!
When I saw this on today's Pixivision Halloween post, I knew today I'd have to post this too. Google Translate translates the Japanese title to "I do not have to make sweets!"

This one is from PiNe's artbook, Pangaea. I only found this one on the Tumblr and it doesn't show a name of its own.

So here's a mid-page art style shift that the artist uploaded on my birthday. The Tumblr description says "From top left to right bottom, May Emerald, June Moonstone, August Peridot, December Turquoise, September Sapphire, January Garnet, July Ruby, February Amethyst, March Aquamarine, November Topaz, April Crystal and October Opal."

Of course there's floating stuff. You know how long I've resisted posting all these "Floating Pine" images? This is as close as I'll let it get.

Another one of those scenes that only works in fiction. Where would I get a glass this big? So refreshing!
