Watch Out For Errors

Hello there, Billy here. I've been implimenting some backend features and shifting around a lot of code. The only visible result of this to you is that you can now thumbs up/down comments as well as posts. I ask that you please use this feature; if we get enough ratings, I can start adding algorithms for the most quality posts and stuff like that. Regardless, please be on the look out for errors and don't hesitate to tell me about them. Also, don't he

Microsoft's Latest XBoner

It doesn't matter where you preorder, right? It usually boils down to who has the best bundles, but yesterday, approximately 150 Target shoppers got a nice surprise in the form of an Xbox One! According to Kotaku, "Target had accidentally not assigned a release date," so when their shipments arrived from the manufacturer, Target did the responsible thing and sent them out.

So what did the lucky winners do? Just the obvious stuff, they attempted to sell them on eBay for ridiculous amounts, and posting unboxing videos on YouTube, which is a topic for another day--seriously, who cares about that? But Microsoft, in an unusually swift display of paying attention to its consumers, forced the YouTube videos to be taken down, and even banned at least one early adopter from Xbox Live.

All in all, it's a pretty hilarous story, from the company that's brought us one PR disaster after another, and I can't wait to see how this continues to develop.

Test my game! AKA Why RotW has been neglected

So as some people have pointed out RotW has been neglected as of late. There are many reasons for this, most of which is school. Aside from that, I've been working on a simple game: A remake (of sorts) of the Atari 2600 game Combat. The initial idea was to add online multiplayer, which is still happening, but is not included in this initial beta version. I encourage anyone and everyone to try it out and give me some feedback. Please read readme.txt first, though. All the

Wind Waker Wall Decals

Oh wow guys. Just wow. Cashing in on In honor of the HD remake of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, wall decal manufacturer Blik, a design shop that I've never head of, has released a series of eight wall decals featuring our favorite cell-shaded hero (Viewtiful Joe and Sly Cooper notwithstanding). The decals are beautifully rendered to look like stained glass windows that would fit in perfectly with the feel of the (spoiler) sunken Kingdom of Hyrule. Perhaps my favorite part of this is that when I first read about these I thought, "What is Blik?" then noticed that their URL also asks the same question. My only regret is that even if I could buy them all, my apartment doesn't have enough wall space for all of them. See more after the break.

New Features

Billy here, maintainer/coder for this site. If you hadn't noticed there's a sidebar on the left now. Why did I do this? Well, a lot of our content is pretty hidden, but now more of it stands out. I actually planned a major re-design of the site, but all the tests I made turned out... less than optimal. As per usual, please let me know if there's any errors on your end. Also, please feel free to suggest (reasonable) features that you'd like to see. I programmed this site from scratch for a rea

By the power of the Crown of Wishes, I, Desmond Moonstride, commission you.

 

            The Crown of Wishes.

            Legend had it that a glorious crown resided deep within the mountains. This crown contained numerous precious gems, and each gem held more power than that of the most renowned wizards. Those who wore the crown could have any wish that they could possibly imagine granted to them. Of course, such a legend did not come without warning, and it dictated that many had set out in search of this magnificent artefact only to fail, never to be seen again.

            Desmond Moonstride was quite willing to accept that risk.
