The SNES classic launches tomorrow, who here is looking forward to it, what games are you planning to play first? I'll be camping outside Best Buy the following morning, if you happen to be going to the same store as me maybe we can talk to pass the time before the store opens, I'm going to the Best Buy in Santa Rosa California, hope to see you there.

Op explains it perfectly. As long as there's idiots who'll buy it, they'll keep selling it. Why not?

This is console nonsense merely reaching it's logical conclusion. Nintendo could have easily just released their games on the PC and other modern consoles, like Sega does while also allowing companies to make Genesis clones for those who want "authentic hardware" and without the artificial shortages to boot, but Nintendo wants to control everything.

To be fair to Nintendo, I could understand a console that can be very difficult to emulate well, like the N64 and I can see the appeal to someone who has no interest in PC emulators or even modding a PSP or 3DS but when it comes down to it, people have very little interest in emulators and nostalgia is the in thing now. I mean dude, Nickelodeon had that whole "90s are all that" block and they are making movies out of classics like Rocko's Modern Life and Hey Arnold!. Disney is shitting out remakes out of good classics too.

 No.17937

I get that nostalgia is "in" but what I don't get is why buy a shitty emubox over the generally cheaper real deal? TVs still have good ol' RCA jacks.

 No.17939

>>17937
You made me check my own tv to see if it had RCA input, I had a little chuckle over that one.

But, while the SNES Classic is a stupid product, it technically is a very good deal. I remembered reading that Earthbound is on that thing and if someone really wants to play Earthbound on real (or just Nintendo sanctioned) hardware, unless he/she is cool with buying a repro cart that game alone is over a hundred bucks. And that is not counting actually getting the actual console. And that's not factoring in the fact if you get a legit cart of the game, is the average person gonna do maintenance like replacing the save battery?

I'm actually cool with Nintendo making emulator boxes, although I wouldn't buy them myself unless it's for a very hard to emulate console. Because there does seem to be a good sized market for people who want their old games but don't want to emulate on their PC or phone but don't want to buy a 3DS or Wii for VC games.

My main personal beef with Nintendo on this product is the clearly intentional shortages of it. Obviously, Nintendo won't do the sensible thing and just release their games on PC or other, more popular consoles so the least they could do make the emuboxes more accessible for those who would buy it. I mean, Sega does it fine with no issues and gives you more games too.

Like I said, console nonsense taken to it's logical conclusion.

Hi uboachan!

I'm here to test your personal values (these should be quirky). So I bring you a test.

But not a fake-ass personality test that tells you what colour your nail polish should be - a real very scientific very complex magic research instrument that will stare deep into your soul.

You get a personalized report about your basic values and reference values based on your peer's data.

I get your anonymous data to fiddle with and check an idea that I nurtured for almost ten years.

Here's the link: unipark.de/uc/personalvalues

If you're interested in who I am and what I do, shoot me an email at personalvaluesandattitudes@gmail.com

On the other hand, W10 has native bash support; you can even run linux programs inside a terminal running X, native. They've literally done what wine has been trying to do for the past 24 years in no time at all. The shitty design and telemetry things are a problem, but you can always switch those off. It's still shitty, but not all of that is shitty.

Features and stuff like that aren't pluses for me when it comes to os'. The interface is the most important part. Frankly, I wish they just stuck to windows xp's interface while only improving the computers themselves. As far as interface goes, xp is as good as it gets in terms of appearance and functionality. Every change they made to it in vista and so on was completely unnecessary. Windows 10 has an unacceptable interface. It is vomit inducing.

Does anyone know the Youtuber "fdjkkdjf"? He's been playing YN fangames for a while now, most notably a 7-year-long playthrough of Yume 2kki exploring almost everything that game has to offer that's still going strong as the game is updated. There's also videos of .flow, Middens, Me, Someday, Fleshchild and he did a fantastic guided tour of Yume Nikki. Just… don't expect him to always finish the games he plays. Particularly .flow, which he's left unfinished just before the ending

Lately, he's been doing weekly "fangame bingo" livestreams where he plays random games from the ynfg wiki and they're a really good time even if you don't catch them live

If you want to give him a shot I'd recommend his Yume Nikki Retrospective series, but for the madmen out there you could dig into his currently 118-episode Let's Play Yume 2kki like I did. It's a journey, that's for sure

Crossposting from Lainchan (https://lainchan.org/r/res/3260.html#3260). I've been wanting to compile a large variety of "eye-opening" media, and then to organize it by increasing gradation.

For me, there was much media that helped me to see things as I do now, to question things, be wary of the government, and see the various flaws in society. Anything that encourages free thought or distrust in assumptions/governments is what I am aiming for.

My idea is to organize it in such a way that a "program" can be made of it to introduce to people to help them to "wake up". Intro-tier would have to be "accessible" enough as not to cause any conditioned aversion toward it, and to gradually increase the concepts as you move higher on the list.

As far as the media medium itself, music and movies are better introductions than interactive media or books/podcasts.

Here's a sample of my current, unorganized list:

Movies

>The Matrix (and sequels?)


>ARQ

Don't put the Matrix sequels and don't out in Avatar. The first reason for this being 1, the message is less effective if you put shit and the second is 2, Avatar doesn't even have that much to do with what you're talking about. Avatar is just another shitty, spectacle film filled with clichés and a heavy-handed message. The blue aliens look as cute and friendly and pet like as possible(to make them more sympathetic) while still being sexually attractive(to give them appeal to those types of people) and the cliché evil military guy. Watch mr.plinkett's review of it. Also, while welcome to the NHK is very good, it also has little to do with your message. Just having themes involving conspiracy doesn't make it about how you shouldn't trust the government. NHK was more about personal growth and how some people like to spin some kind of complicated story to explain the bad things in their life because they don't want to believe that it's either their fault or just coincidence. If anything, adding this show would subtract from your message because it would tell people that instead of deluding themselves into thinking that somebody else is out to ruin their lives, they should take things into their own hands. Frankly, I don't really agree with your base message. The government being shitty is just a reflection of how shitty people are. The government is nothing more than a bunch of self-serving people who either try to make a living or try to gain as much power as possible. Mixed in, there actually are a few people with good intentions. There is no grand plot. Everything bad the government does is just the culmination of a lot of selfish people's decisions. If anything, businesses are much, much more conspiratorial. I don't know why you put NGE. You might want to add something by Isaac Asimov. Good Fellas actually wouldn't be too bad of a choice either because it shows how easily the system can be manipulated by criminals. It's based on a true story too which gives it more weight. By the way, the only people who will see your collection are people who already agree with you. You're just adding another voice to the echo chamber.

>don't out in Avatar
I think you're definitely right on this. I just wanted to see what others thought. It has very vague military distrust, but I think it's too overpowered to be really effective, except maybe as intro-tier (but even then).

>welcome to the NHK is very good, it also has little to do with your message

It kinda points out flaws in thought and emotional traps and things. I think by learning to recognize these, you also learn to question your already-held beliefs. Although, this:

>would subtract from your message because it would tell people that instead of deluding themselves into thinking that somebody else is out to ruin their lives, they should take things into their own hands

I feel is quite true. Actually potentially detrimental to the intent.

>There is no grand plot

Even so, I feel the effect is just the same, and as well with wakening to it.

>I don't know why you put NGE

I feel it encourages empathy and seeing things through varying perspectives, which I feel is very important. I realize my OP is kinda vague, though I also intend to cause personal growth with the completed program, as I feel they help with the overarching intent.
