Old Practice Drawing of Rie

Apparently, I can draw. Here’s an old drawing of Rie that I did on January of last year.

I honestly didn’t think I could make drawings like this one. 😅

Before this, I usually just did stick figure drawings or some really quick and ugly looking ones when I tried something more. It was like I really wasn’t being careful or really trying. I think it wasn’t until the beginning of 2016 when I decided to really try to draw well based on what someone had told me a few years earlier. After that, it’s just been practice, careful observation of art styles that I like, and a few valuable tips from artists that I know.

How not to promote the Nintendo Switch Online service

Aka, Nintendo of America’s recent tweet foolishness.

Nintendo of America recently posted this on their Twitter to promote the upcoming Nintendo Switch Online service:

So their telling us that, with the new Nintendo Switch Online, we’ll be able to play Super Mario Bros. 3 online. A game where the two player mode is not simultaneous but instead is by turns.

Checking the full list of the first 20 titles that will be available, they could have selected either:

  • Soccer
  • Tennis
  • Mario Bros.
  • Balloon Fight
  • Ice Climber
  • Dr. Mario

All of those games have simultaneous multiplayer mode which would actually show the online service much better. But instead, they go with a game that goes by turns when switching player.

The only way NoA could have made this worse would have been if they had tweeted about playing The Legend of Zelda online.

(Btw, if you look carefully at Nintendo’s screenshot, the game isn’t even being played online but in single player mode, as noted by the player icons on the left. An actual online screenshot is at the bottom of this page.)

Unlocking Trygames version of Mega Man X5

Long ago, I bought Mega Man X5 for PC (Windows) through Trygames since I didn’t own a PlayStation. And of course, back then, everything worked perfectly fine. Today, though, that copy of Mega Man X5 is now permanently locked since Trygames is dead.

Moments when MMX Legacy Collections block screenshots and videos

It was expected but I hadn’t really experienced it yet. There are moments in both Mega Man X Legacy Collections when the screenshots and video recording are blocked. Once it happened once, I knew all the places where it would happen. Btw, I’m guessing these features are also blocked in a similar way in the Xbox One and PS4 versions.

MMX Legacy Collection 2 – Two X8 videos (and comparing with old ones)

Since I had those old Mega Man X8 videos already uploaded to the N Masters YouTube channel, I thought to myself, “Why not?”. So here are the new Mega Man X8 videos recorded from the X Legacy Collection 2. I decided to specifically record and upload these two already since they are the same content that was previously uploaded.

Loading times are surprisingly quick now. Also, the X Collections give me the excuse to record and upload more Mega Man X game videos to N Masters since they are all now officially in a Nintendo console. 😛

You can watch the previously recorded videos inside this post, btw. Those were recorded from the PC version.

An old Super Mario Galaxy wallpaper

Here’s another old wallpaper I made quite a few years ago.  This one’s based on Super Mario Galaxy. At one point, it was available at N Masters but now it’s not available anywhere AFAIK.

Again, like most of the other ones, there’s no other sizes available. It’s a simple wallpaper but I like how it came out with the starry background effect I did.
