i forget where i saw it today but i saw someone talking about an xkit extension i think? that creates a fake ask page that shows an anon checkbox but doesnt actually have one and man idk i get why people would think thats a good idea at first but imo thats unfollowr level extension-skeeze imo
I don’t actually get anon hate, but if I did I would rather just cut it off entirely than be able to name-and-shame a fraction of the people sending it
and it would be really bad news if someone was sending an anon ask for a good reason, such asking a question about a subject where they’re still closeted, and accidentally outed themselves to the world when they weren’t ready because some dope set a trap
there’s something surreal about the idea of sakurai affecting this anglophone accent, even though I know perfectly well that it’s nintendo’s translators handling it
the problems with the wii u’s hardware have nothing to do with nintendo’s ability or inability to deliver graphics commensurate with that hardware; the problems are that (A) they invested a big chunk of their R&D and manufacturing cost into an expensive controller that the market turned out not to give a shit about, and (B) the console itself does not meet the parameters of what third parties were/are looking for
a wii 2 that had no gamepad and instead put those freed-up resources towards a slightly beefier machine with an x86 architecture would probably still be in the game at this point, even if it were still weaker than ps4/bone
but it’s not possible to push the current hardware in that direction, even by removing the gamepad now, so the best they can do is muddle through this gen and try to learn some lessons for their next launch
(I say all this as someone who likes the small conveniences of the gamepad; it has its perks but it most likely wasn’t worth what they had to sacrifice to get it into the box)
"It means Nintendo is having trouble as it is making games with PS3/360 level graphics. Asking them to jump right up to PS4/Xbone graphics now would be hard to say the least."
this is my favorite thing i hear out of hardcore nintendo fans now.
get over yourselves, nintendo isn’t a 4 person company struggling to code. the only reason they have trouble with graphics on the wii u is because its got an archaic low-performance graphics setup and much like the 360 8 years ago people are going to need a few years of experience to get really good graphics out of it.
if the wii u had come with a modern graphics system to start with, it would be trivial to make things look good, even if they didn’t quite match up with xbone/ps4 graphics since the system was out a year earlier. with more graphics horsepower to throw at your problems, you have room to get sloppy but still put out a good quality end result on your screen. you don’t need so many of the performance tweaks and tricks needed to balance looks and performance on old slow graphics hardware like the 360/ps3/wii u
I don’t think nintendo is ‘having trouble’ with graphics per se anyway, so that point is a bit moot; they underestimated the necessary investment for HD graphics and it threw off their scheduling around launch, but games like pikmin 3 and sm3dw seem to be getting good visual mileage out of the machine
Anonymous asked: You probably look like a dude when you're not smiling. Most trans women do. Sorry, blame your own sex for that. A blank, flat, masculine face, even when wrapped up in lots of dressy layers outs you as easily as your pornsickness. You can't hide your predatory inclinations with eyeliner or skirts. Sorry, mister.
here’s the ask in question, i’m sick of this piece of trash clogging my inbox
i’m actually gonna reblog this and post my response publicly because if anyone following me thinks this shit is anything but grounds for punching i want them to unfollow immediately
hey anon you probably think you’re a “feminist” but you’re actually going to be second against the wall right after all the white cis dudes whose patriarchy you’re upholding right now, and every moment of your clownshow, brown-nosing, laughable life
the best possible thing to say to terfs
(at least I think anon is a terf, the talking points smell terfy)
There’s an extension you can get to tell you who sent anons. Out these fuckers.
is it on xkit and does it work on already-published asks? i’m on the computer at work but i’d like to keep it in mind for later
I think all that exists is an extension that replaces the anon checkbox with a non-functional fake. I doubt the data on who sent an anon post is even recorded anywhere after it’s sent.
