this matters and you should stop ignoring this.

bitcoin price in the news but not the reprint of the sanrio amiibo cards. weird planet.

Animal Crossing 

May as well dump some screenies while the Switch is plugged in. (Really wish we had more options for organising and captioning them on Masto.)

Fourth pic: If you talk to someone just as they jump onto a chair it gets buggy.

Animal Crossing 

Accidental golden rose~

Don't really know what to do with it tbh it's hideous~

Black history month is a US thing like the rest of the Americas, Europe, Asia, MENA, and Australia also ain't doing their black folks dirty.

I think this is the most blatantly anti-capitalist game I've played.

Also the presentation feels more like it's made by Onion Games than Nintendo?

Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland is heavier than I expected. Geepers.

GM.S instance meta. Follow request on not-locked account 

Just got a weird UI message:

'Even though your account is not locked, the staff thought you might want to review follow requests from these accounts manually.'

I... am the staff ???

So if anyone else has something like that, I think it's because the request comes from n instance that's silenced maybe?

daydreaming about having a big collection of videogame controllers, turning it into a museum, and getting people to come in and make stuff for the more unusual ones.

doing time trials in enthusia, using the green vw polo my partner used to drive, is hitting the spot. really like the rallyish cave track.

anything more fancy than is a bit of a disaster. i never bothered to get my licence, so i don't really get gears and how not to spin out and shit.

outrun is too hard for me to chill with now i'm using a wheel. i think i need to use manual gearbox if i wanna play with that setup.....

Researching driving games to help me chill out and ended up at this via negcon research:

Hi! Game Making Social is a part of the Fediverse dedicated to being a well-moderated, cosy, friendly place to talk and share stuff about amateur videogame making, and everything surrounding that.

It's kinda an offshoot of Game Making Tools, which is a wiki(+) for a similar audience.

Game makers, game writers, game curators, etc. etc. most welcome!

I also try to maintain a list of not-jerk game-making communities on the wiki, which you might find interesting.

Please read the rules before signing-up :)

PS: We have Animal Crossing, LSD, and Klik & Play emoji :3
