To be fair, Bowser has come close to success several times.
Mario Chat / Obscure manga reference?
« Last post by Boo Dudley on October 07, 2014, 05:44:47 PM »
So I picked up a manga called Kingyo Used Books. It's pretty much a manga about manga, yeah. Anyways, there's an ancillary character obsessed with an old detective series called Billy Puck by Mitsuhiro Kawashima, to the extent that he dresses like the boy detective despite being too old. But it was the hat that caught my attention. I coincidentally picked up The Thousand Year Door on a whim, and I noticed Pennington wears the same cap:

It's not a deerstalker so it cannot be a Sherlock Holmes reference. And It doesn't evoke any other influential detective series that I'm familiar with.

There is unfortunately almost no English or Japanese sites dedicated to Billy Puck. Yahoo site is the only page I've found regarding Puck or his creator. But I'm not about to doubt that such a property has a strong cult following there.

I reaaaallly wanna get it ASAP, but money is hard to come by for an unemployed 16 year old with no allowance, so I probably won't get it until Christmas. Oh well.

I shaded all the sprites I've made so far because there's going to be this water move:

which called for a darkening/contrast-raising effect (surprisingly I actually had to make a custom material shader to do this) for things made wet and shading to accentuate it. As for what else it does... nothing, yet. How anything reacts to a specific hitbox is going to have to be done on a case-by-case basis. But the funny thing is, I played Mario Sunshine again to see if it had any interesting applications for water that I could steal the [dukar] out of. And I ended up taking note of only one thing: expanding cloud platforms. Nearly everything else FLUDD does is either completely obvious, or makes no sense and is only there because when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Take away Mario's punches and kicks, suddenly everyone is hurt by water. A springboard that you switch from carry mode to use mode by spraying with water? WHY NOT. Fortunately I already have some other ideas of what to do with water, involving buckets, oversized cattle prods, ice, and things like that...

The death sequence (sans Freddie, whom I've yet to animate dying). The grave stays where it is after the player respawns and can be picked up, thrown, stood on...

Those little lantern guys on the left are just some placeholder objects for tests. In the likeness of these little lantern guys I made up for another game concept I want to do later. And as NPCs in this. And most every other game I make in the future because I love them

^That, specifically, isn't gonna happen, I drew that just for fun... although, specific stuff that's going to go on in the narrative is still up in the air and not of the highest concern. I do know that, for this, I want disconnected self-contained stories within the larger one like Paper Mario, but with a little potential for sequence breaking... or even total nonlinearity, in the case of a New Game + where you have all your moves already.

Nothing about game development is interesting and I am sorry to have betrayed your expectations
The Pizza Hut pizza isn't disgusting, just not great. No unusual ingredients. I hate the small fake bakeries they have (I call them fakeries). They will make mini-pizzas with ketchup instead of proper pizza sauce. My girlfriend doesn't understand the difference between Italian tomato-based sauces and ketchup. I'm actually going to show her tonight with some homemade spaghetti and a jar of pasta sauce.
having bowed to the irrational demand for mayonnaise on pizza.

....? Who thought that that was a good idea? Just thinking about it makes my stomach turn.

Speaking of failed pizza experiments, I recently had "hamburger pizza." Featuring mustard and catsup as sauce and small pieces of ground beef and American cheese as toppings, Hamburger pizza wins the blue ribbon of disgusting food mashups. My guess is that mayo pizza is not much better.
No, exactly the same in Beijing. But Pizza Hut is different (worse).
That appears to be a place somewhere in the world (OFC), but I don't think it's a chain restaurant.

Yeah, what is it with the Pizza Hut out here? The Pizza Hut franchise in WAGA-NIPPON (Japan) is also a sad affair, largely thanks to having bowed to the irrational demand for mayonnaise on pizza.

Also, hello again Forest Guy, sorry I'm late to the party.
The crust is stuffed with communist dissidents.

...and I've never liked Pizza Hut in the first place. It's hard for me to imagine a *worse* Pizza hut.
