Well, technically it’s Fall right now… at least over here! I’d been bothered by the problematic headers from my previous themes, you know, those that wouldn’t adapt to the hardware used to view the blog and resolution settings. I found this very similar theme, twentyeleven, that looks a wee bit better than twentythirteen. And the headers work flawlessly here, which is ace!
I’ve Photoshopped a few headers, totally four of them at the moment, who change on each page much like my previous theme did. I’m planning to create a few more of them with Link, Samus, Sonic etc. Also I’ve added Wario as some sort of “Avatar” of sorts until I can post a satisfactory caricature of myself. I just can’t capture myself that well, and my biggest problem is what clothing I should wear. The face and expression has turned out well though, and that ought to be the most difficult part. The rest is crud, from the pose to clothing and the setting and such. Also I need something better than Photoshop to draw in, but Mangastudio (which I’ve tried and love) is way too expensive for me at the moment.
I’ve also added a few widgets to the left (it seemed more natural that way considering the rest of this blog’s current design).
There’ll be lots of posts in the future, I’m tinkering on 11 drafts, and you’ll be able to read about Game Hunting, Gaming merchandise, weird stuff I’ve encountered during my travels (movie and video game related) and also about some arcade gaming, amongst others.
For those of you who are illiterate gamers, or simply feel the need to revise your alphabet knowledge, there is help to be given. I present to you one of the examples of the Alphabet series, Gamer’s Edition and then a link the the complete list below:
I know y’all remember that stupid laughing dog in Duck Hunt- this topic probably has been done to death but I wanted to present to you these images, and the opportunity to shoot the dog once and for all, outside of the Vs. Duck Hunt game, of course:
This is my 251st post. Not only do I celebrate “the usual” milestones but also the numbers connected to the Pokémon franchise.
With the advent of Pokémon Gold & Silver versions, who were meant to be true continuations of Pokémon Red & Blue (but got hogged of the glory of being the first true sequels in the series by Pokémon Black & White 2), we were granted 100 new monsters to train and capture. This truly was a marvellous time for fans as the games made a huge jump in all aspects, and there are a lot of reasons many fans consider these two games being the best in the series, as they made the greatest leap forward.
Let’s celebrate this 251st post with this image of all the Pokémon up to that point, in the Hyaku style:
They’re listed from left to right, in the Japanese manner of reading, and I think Magcargo, Miltank, Azumarill, Mantine, Crobat, Snorlax, Weezing, Lickitung, Onix, Farfetch’d and Butterfree and Piloswine look really good in this style.
