    I got a Hat in Time not too long ago on steam. My lappytoppy can't play it all that well unless I really put it on minimal settings but it's still cute as heck and tons of fun! I would have waited till it was ported to the switch, but I wanted to play with the new DLC and all the mods too.
     
    While I was at it, I also decided to start Super Mario Odyssey as well (I have had it for a while, but always put off playing it). It's super fun too! It isn't quite as cute though. It's still cute, but not little girl with a big top hat cute, ya know? Other then that it's striking how similar the two games are.
     
    I think my favorite '3D platformer' of all time might still be Brave Fencer Musashi, although Brave Fencer Musashi definitely follows it's own kind of formula and leans more in the direction of Zelda then Mario sometimes, so it might not be a fair comparison.

    I was working on my game today! I started on a feature I have been wanting to do for a bit: Puzzle maps! It's a common feature in many Mystery Dungeon style roguelikes to have a collection of puzzle maps that can also double as a kind of tutorial. The first puzzle map I made to test it out for example is a map filled with rocks you can only get around by moving diagonally.

    I forgot to say anything about it, But I picked up Super Mario Maker 2 on Friday. Didn't even know that was the day it was released, I just happened to be visiting gamestop that day. Might have gotten the last copy too, or at least there were no more cases on display.
     
    Anyway, I don't have Nintendo's dumb switch online thing, but it's still fun to mess around with and play the story mode. Yeah, I could have gotten a bundle deal thing with a year of switch online for a bit extra, but honestly? I kinda thing switch online is kinda scammy and if I pay for it it will only encourage Nintendo to do it more.
     
    Also, I hear you can get it for free with twitch prime, which you can get for free with amazon prime, which my parents might have sine they use amazon a ot maybe. Donno. Even that might be encouraging Nintendo too much.
     
    But anyway, yeah Mario Maker 2 is pretty fun to mess with. Don't like the touch controls for editing much as they are way too finicky, but I just feel that way about all touch screens.  Playing with it kinda makes me want to restart my old Super Mario World romhacking project: The Adventures of Jiggles the Catgirl. I have thought of maybe someday restarting the project as it's own stand alone game instead of as a romhack, but it's kinda unlikely at this point.

    Ah, ya gotta love old demoscene demo music. Even if that visuals seem a bit dated and looks like something from the After Dark screensavers, the music is always... well... The title of the demo says it all doesn't it? :P I don't think the playback quality is the best though.

    Holy Moly!  They are actually finally officially released a version of Seiken Densetsu 3/Secret of Mana 2 in English (called Trials of Mana now apparently)? What's next? An official English version of Mother 3? Who knows? I mean, now that Reggie has retired he isn't around to throw fireballs at people for asking.
     
    Too bad everyone who cared probobly already played the unofficial version to death and moved on. Maybe I will pick up the remake they are making? I would like to see if they fixed any of the many many issues the original game had!
     
    Can you imagine if they decided to remake Mother 3 like that? It would be funny given it was originally gonna be a 3D n64 game.

    I think I am gonna add some difficulty options to my game or something. Before I kinda wanted to do old school roguelike full permadeath and still kinda want that to be an option, but i have played played dark souls a bunch recently and I like how it handles progression and death. So I was thinking maybe it would be better to just have you lose your items and progress to the next level instead of reseting your level completely... We will see!

    I was just experimenting with if statements that used if statements as conditions in ruby.
     
    Yes, you can do that.
     
    Only reason I was curious to see how well it worked was I sometimes want to do something like:
     
    unless ( if something     do_something   end or if somethingelse     do_somethingelse   end )   do_nothing end  
    Or in other words, I want something to happen if and only if nothing else happens. The usual way I end up doing this is like this:
     
    done = false if something do_something done = true end if somethingelse do_somethingelse done = true end do_nothing unless done But it sort of bugs me that I need a variable. Not a big deal, but I wonder if there is a better way?
     
    Note: The last line of an inner if statement needs to set a value for that kind of funny nested if statement to work.
     
    Edit: Oh, actually it wouldn't work the way I want due to short circuiting I think... I thought using 'or' rather then '||' would disable that but apparently not.

    Honestly it's kind of silly how unforgiving it can be. I mean, I get you wanna be hard game, but do you really have to let me dive right off into a pit if I am slightly at the wrong angle?
     
    You know in so called 'real life' people usually instinctively stop themselves from walking over edges. Just walking over one without thinking is something that mostly only happens in video games.

    Tomorrow is the day I start the journey to Singapore! Kinda anyway. More like the journey to where I will start the journey to Singapore which I will start the next day, and I already spent the last week or so with my human parents.
     
    Also: Haven't really been working on my game much lately. Been playing with Daggerfall Unity lately actually. It's almost feature complete! Only a few things that havn't been finished yet. It also has tons of cool mods!
     
    I still say Daggerfall is probobly the best Elder Scrolls game and the peak of the series and I really don't like the direction the series went in from Morrowind onwards. I mean even if I like Daggerfall for what it is, in theory I had no problem when them cutting back on the scale and making a more detailed handcrafted open world, but the problem was their more detailed handcrafted world was almost as lifeless and drab anyway. You want to see a good hand crafted open world RPG? Look at Ultima 6 and 7. Those games had actual personality. And yeah, maybe they could have trimmed down the number of skills (for example the language skills in Daggerfall are almost useless if you ask me), but did they have to gut the whole interesting character creation system? And the series hasn't really gotten any better.
     
    Don't get me wrong, Daggerfall can get pretty boring and irritating. I just rather have had them continue to improve the ideas started in Arena and Daggerfall instead of completely abandoning most of them for something that's just as boring and irritating in a different way.
