  1. There's a slot for a card on the top of your Switch. Place the game card in there, turn the Switch on, and enjoy!
  2. When normies go to a convention or Renaissance festival.
  3. By the way, check out some more of Fountains of Wayne. They're a really good band that sadly got hit by the One-Hit-Wonder Syndrome, even though they had hit singles years prior.
  4. Streaming did help. Plus I'll do little videos for Snapchat or Instagram stories. Might've forgotten to mention, during that second run through DW II, it was when I was in 7th grade. It was one of those weekends when school was out, but it wasn't Christmas yet. As John Mayer would say, one of those kind of mornings that last all afternoon. Just stuck inside the gloom. Just cold enough to not want to go outside. Nothing really going on, so I played DW II and really explored the map. Figured out the most efficient ways to get from point A to point B.
  5. I'm glad folks are enjoying it. It was really fun to do. Wish I was a little better on the mic, but I'm way better than I used to be.
  6. What part of store did you find the magnet? Hit up a couple Wal-Marts today and couldn't find it. It really depends on where you're looking. I still see lots of nice stuff, but there certainly has been a trending style. It also depends on what sort of illustrator the publisher pairs the writer up with, and how good that artist's agent is.
  7. Do what you want. Let Square Enix come after you and burn money trying to prove damages. It'll be fun.
  8. Surprised they did this. Horii is pretty staunch on not releasing old versions. He'd rather remake the game. The Wii anniversary collection was a rare exception. It's Japan. Things are generally more expensive there. Your average eShop game was what? $5-$8?
  9. Sometimes I'll watch a Meyer video or two. I have him to thank for introducing me to Space Bandits and No One Left to Fight, which are great. That's actually one redeemable thing about Meyer. He's not afraid to praise an author he doesn't like personally. Sitterson really dug himself into a hole, but he came back with a fun book that has stellar art that's selling out. (It obviously started out as Dragon Ball fan fiction, but that doesn't make it any less fun.) I actually follow the artist for Space Bandits on Instagram, but he only posts his convention commissions in bursts. Independent content IS sustainable if an audience is built with good, consistent work. Someone like Tennapel understands this. Meyer seems to have an actual business plan. Practically everything else sounds very similar to the Image boom. Lots of creators, lots of money, but they all crashed and burned before they had enough content for one trade. It sounds easy enough to be tempting. Align yourself with these people and your project is funded and then some. I just don't want to build my audience like that. Don't wanna be part of a movement or labeled. I want everyone who wants to read a fun story and likes cool artwork to check it out. I don't feel entitled to my audience's money. The only Kickstarters and Indiegogos I'll back are from trusted creators or projects where the book just needs printing/distribution.
  10. The reason why ANN's bad job is so important is they were the ones to really kick it off. People followed those bad leads instead of properly researching and vetting the sources. Then there was the Tumblr (was it?) where people could just submit accusations anonymously. It kept going down from there. Muddied waters like that lessen the seriousness and impact of real claims. If someone's crying for help, that cry can't be muffled by gossip and lulz. And I absolutely think Sabat needs to be looked into, but I doubt it will be a fair investigation. His claws are too deep in Funimation for him to get the boot. And that's a shame, because I've never liked his Piccolo and Vegeta. They sound practically alike anyway! EVS is a YouTube personality now. Straight up. Tennapel is destroying him with two 9x12 books this year. I can't hate Meyer for creating the books he wants to read. Some of the things he's said actually did have an effect. Marvel's staff has significantly toned down the polarizing political content and customer attacking. Things seem to be generally going well for independent creators. It's a good time to be one, but at what cost and is it sustainable? I just want to work on my books. I don't have enough time to do YouTube steams, pick a click, get others to fund my stuff, and so on.
