I decided to make a comic just like all those ultra cool ones i see on tumblr nowadays!!
A handy guide to what games I could actually get out of Nintendo’s elite status rewards this year. The rest of them gave me Club Nintendo coins in the first place.
I mean, I don’t want to sound ungrateful, but this whole system has been gradually going downhill. They used to have statues, the Mario hat…really cool stuff you couldn’t get otherwise. Now their normal selection throughout the year is down to some pencil cases and tote bags, and the elite rewards we waited and collected all year for are…things we can just buy anyway? And most people probably already have? I mean…Ice Climber is on this list. Show me the person who’s picking Ice Climber for their elite reward. MINUTES of entertainment right there! I’m not interested in Dillon’s Rolling Western (people have said it’s good, but it’s not the type of game I’d be into) and I don’t know what Fluidity Spin Cycle is other than it sounds like a washing machine, so I guess I’m getting yet another Mario Vs. Donkey Kong game.
I don’t think I’m gonna bother going out of my way to purchase new games as opposed to used ones anymore just for the coins.
I’m seconding this. I just spent coins on Paper Mario and I can’t even play it on my Wii U because it has to be played through the Wii menu, and I can’t use the gamepad. They expect me to buy another damned controller! The Virtual Console is a goddamn mess. Sony does a better (but still imperfect) job with their downloadable PS1 games.

Also for good measure my 3DS code is 5155-2935-2957

I think all we need is a lemon cannon in Half-Life 3 to make him eligible for sainthood.
Sony is currently running a weekend flash sale in North America, with a ton of games being offered for 99 cents. Really! 99 cents! No PS Plus subscription needed!
I only own a PSP, so I picked up all the Crash and Spyro PS1 games, along with Gex 2! Of course I still had to suffer through the insane download times to play them. (Still, it was a good reason to finally dust off the PSP, seeing as how the 3DS hasn’t had anything noteworthy come out since Zelda, and still won’t until we get Smash Bros, unless you count a single Kirby game that’s been out in Japan for months or that boring Yoshi’s Island retread)
Other games in the sale include:
Retro City Rampage, for both PS3 and Vita
All the Telltale games released for PS3, in season format, all for $.99A bunch of Red Faction games
Plants vs. Zombies
It’s not often that you get downloadable game prices this low on non-mobile platforms, so go get ‘em, the sale ends Monday!
I bought Anime Studio 9.5, and this is my first test of its bone rigging system with 2D digital paintings. I figured a worm was easy to create. I painted it in SAI, animated it in Anime Studio, and imported it into Photoshop to export it as a GIF. I couldn’t get a video version of this to work, and since it’s a 1 second loop it works better as a GIF anyway. I will be making more complex animations with this program soon!
