Posted under Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch, Nintendo, Switch OLED

Hello. In the midst of all the talks about a potential Switch 2, I'd like to talk a bit about the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model).

I've had my Switch OLED for about two years now (wow! already?) and here's some of my thoughts on it.

Before I got my Switch OLED, I was watching some videos about it, and the number one most brought-up topic was the screen. At the time, I thought "What's so cool about a screen with individually lit pixels? The blacks are better, and that's it?" After getting my hands on it, however, I can personally say that the Switch OLED's screen looks phenomenally better than the regular Switch's screen. Not only does the screen not have that huge annoying bezel, but it feels like the screen just pops out with color. Blacks, obviously, look really good on it too; especially in games that feature black heavily such as Gato Roboto or UNDERTALE, that feature black heavily, you can really tell the huge difference. Sometimes when a game fades to black for a long time, (such as the case with moon's loading screens) I've thought that I accidentally turned the console off.

Another big selling point of the Switch OLED is the improved kickstand. I always hated the original Switch's kickstand, and I can say that this aspect of the system is also greatly improved upon. Honestly, with my original Switch, I almost never used the kickstand because whenever I would try, I would either knock the stand off or make my Switch fall in the process. Most of the stand's use for me was just something as a fidget. One day, I was fidgeting with the stand while I was really tired, fell asleep, and when I woke up later that day the stand was gone. I later found the stand under my bed a couple hours after I got my Switch OLED, ironically.

The Switch OLED's stand is a big step-up from the original stand. It is almost as wide as the console itself, allowing for extra stability, and is made of metal, not the cheap plastic-y substance that the original Switch's variant uses. I find myself using the stand very often for things, such as playing with the Joy-Cons detached, or with them sideways for games like TowerFall.

Lastly, the storage is doubled from the regular Switch. Whether this means anything to you depends on whether you are a digital collector or a physical collector. Obviously, that is not really a question, considering the website I am writing this review on, but I find (with my sadly mostly digital collection) that no matter what games you're playing, you're still probably going to need a microSD card anyway. If you only play physical games then maybe you could get around with 64GB of storage, but nowadays most physical Switch games have some portion of the game as a download anyway, so you're pretty much required to have a microSD card if you play more than  five games on your Switch.

A question that is brought up often is whether the OLED Model is worth the upgrade. I personally think if you already have the regular Switch, then you're fine. The screen, stand, and storage are the big selling points here. If you're just looking for a good console to play games on, then just stick with your regular Switch.

I've been koola, and people say the Switch OLED is trying to copy the PS5.

(Isn't that just the style now, anyways?)

Posted under Hypnospace Outlaw, Hypnospace Outlaw, the internet, 90s

Hypnospace Outlaw is a wonderful, splendid video game.

It is quite possibly the most human-feeling game, in my opinion, that I have ever played. The only game that I have beat that has gotten close is Persona 5 Royal, and that's a huge-budget game made by one of the most respected companies in the video game industry.

As the developers put it, Hypnospace Outlaw is a "90s internet simulator". In my words, Hypnospace Outlaw is a masterfully-crafted story told through the medium of various 90s Internet pages.

The game starts with you signing up to be a rules enforcer for a forum that you can browse while you sleep. Named "Hypnospace", it has several different zones assigned to its "residents", as they are called, who each have their own, very 90s, personal pages.  Your goal is to track down and remove all content that violates the rules of Hypnospace.

Each of the residents feel very distinct. I wasn't around in the 90s, but a lot of people I have listened to and watched attest to the accurateness of the pages. Stuff like rudimentary page design, obnoxious music, relentless typos, and more litters the pages: things that people look back on and think of as the golden age of the internet.

The beauty shines in the humanity of these residents. They aren't just meaningless characters who are only there to fill a role; each and every one of them has their own struggles and faults. They respond to actions of you and your company with their own genuine reasons and, like us, will get upset if you as an enforcer do something that they deem unjust. They each have their own likes and dislikes, which some of them make evident and others you have to search for, and just like our internet, there are hidden pages, leaks of companies, and people making joke pages just to show off their programming ability.

A good example of this humanity that I keep coming back to is the first case: you are assigned to take down copyright violations of a fictional old cartoon character, and after doing some digging you find they are just kids' drawings that their teacher posted. The teacher, thinking that she did nothing wrong, starts to lash out about it and eventually gets her whole zone to start a revolt against these "unfair policies". This is something I could genuinely see happening in the real world.

Without diving into spoiler territory as I admittedly often do, the story goes into places you would not expect. I came out of it feeling confused at first, but the more I think about it, the more the ending makes sense for where the character development goes.

Overall, Hypnospace Outlaw has one of my favorite stories of any game, and I highly recommend you check it out.

I've been koola, and I apologize for the long wait time and short article. There's been a lot of games that I've been starting, but the only one that I have finished was this one, and I didn't want to dive into spoiler territory.

(I wanna see a real life Trennis game. That sounds like a fun idea, honestly.)

Posted under OMNIFATE, OMNIFATE, game development

"Oh hey, just remembered I haven't gotten my article in for this month!"

looks at clock

8:30 PM, September 30

"Oh poop"

Hi. It's koola. You may know me from "wow this game is good" and "wow Toby Fox is amazing" and "something something music".

I made a game called OMNIFATE. Originally, I wanted to document the game's entire development on my blog page, but that did not end up happening, sadly.

I released OMNIFATE on September 9, 2023. If you want, you can pick it up right now from this link: https://store.steampowere...com/app/2521970/OMNIFATE/

I just wanted to spend some time going over its development history. Originally started as a companion project to a cancelled Game Builder Garage game, OMNIFATE's first playable version was a puzzle platformer. At the time, I was very proud of it. Looking back at it now, frankly that prototype sucked: it showed very little signs of polish (even though I had promised polish from it online), lack of originality (the first couple prototypes did not use original music), and you couldn't even die.

I worked on that version of the game for about two months, most of which was spent fine-tuning the physics. Honestly, at some point, I do want to make a platformer game, although I don't think that will happen any time soon.

That version of OMNIFATE was made in Unity. Unity is supposed to be an easy engine for newcomers to the field to learn, however nothing I wrote ever ended up working. I don't think that was the engine's fault; rather, I think it was the raw difficulty of C# for amateurs.

After about two months of development and the release of a demo publicly available prototype, I had felt like I was just growing overly tired of the project. I wanted to call it quits, and was thinking that this sort of thing is just not something a person of my age could come up with.

Fast forward a month. I was deciding what to do with the project. At the time, I had not fully realized what my favorite genre of video game is, but I had known that I had a fun time with many a turn-based RPG, so I decided to go with that. I could not find a single tutorial for RPGs in Unity, so I gave up.

In September 2021, I was considering my options. I could abandon the project directly, or start in a new engine. I looked into several options, but the one I ended up using was GameMaker Studio 2, which later officially changed its name to just GameMaker.

GameMaker seemed like a breath of fresh air. A unique workspace, tabs, no switching windows, and I could kind  of understand the code! I followed a tutorial on top-down movement in GameMaker and understood about 81% of what was going on. The way the tutorial's code was structured meant that I had to have a walking animation.

I asked my friend Rain if she could draw a walking animation for the player character, and waited. And waited. And waited. She was procrastinating, but so was I. I could have just made the walking animation, but I wanted it to look nice.

I ended up waiting for seven months. I regret that timespan the most out of anything I regret throughout the development cycle, because at any point I could have just slapped up a prototype walking animation.

On one day in June 2022, I finally snapped out of it and made the dang walking animation. After that, things finally started to look up. Throughout the rest of that summer, every day I worked wholeheartedly on every aspect of the game, with the goal of releasing a demo by the end of it. I succeeded. I released a demo of OMNIFATE on GX.games on August 30, 2022, two days before my deadline. After that, I worked on the rest of the game, and completed it in March 2023.

After that, I released a trailer, and sat my butt down. I relaxed. I playtested the game multiple times, noticed several bugs, but patched only a few. (I caught the mind disease known as "procrastination" again.) I also got several other people to playtest, and promised them the bugs that they found would be fixed. (I didn't fix them.)

In one day in July, I finally saved up money for publishing on Steam. I got everything ready, and asked my parents for playtesting. They proceeded to lovingly and caringly point out every bug they saw, while I wrote them down all while crying and telling them that I couldn't fix the bugs. Looking back on it, I was being a brat to my loving and caring parents who only wanted to see a quality game released.

So I fixed every bug that was written down, and they found more. This process repeated twice before I finally felt that a genuine, final, quality product was ready. I submitted everything, and relaxed again. It was like a burden had been lifted off my shoulders.

That's where we are today. The game has released, and I'm currently working on another project, in a different genre. (*It's not the platformer.)

Thanks for reading this, and hopefully you enjoy the fruit of my (mostly) hard work.

I've been koola, and, why are some letters bolded? Those weren't bolded when I was writing the article...?

(I'm sorry for the lack of a quickly written article this month. I was mostly focusing on school and family.)

Posted under This Way Madness Lies, This Way Madness Lies, Zeboyd Digital Entertainment, Cthulhu Saves Christmas, turn based RPGs

As I have noted in previous articles, my personal favorite type of video game is a turn-based role-playing game. I personally prefer the ones that are not strategy-based, but I have had some fun with all of them that I have played.

I prefer ones that change up the gameplay just a tiny bit, but not too much, have good humor, are short, and are genuinely fun. It's hard finding a good balance of all four, but there are a good few games that hit that balance (or at least get really close to it). Some examples are UNDERTALE, DELTARUNE, Helen's Mysterious Castle, and Dicey Dungeons.

There is exactly one video game company that makes games that hit all of these pillars with literally every single game I've played from them, and that company is Zeboyd Digital Entertainment. I could go all day talking about them, but this article is about their newest offering, This Way Madness Lies.

This Way Madness Lies is a turn-based RPG about Shakespeare and magical girl anime, which is funnily enough not even the strangest premise I've heard from Zeboyd. (Cthulhu saving Christmas, anyone?) This strange premise, in my opinion, already helps with the humor a lot, but even if it weren't there, I would still be laughing my butt off because almost every line in this game.

Given the subject material, you see a lot of Old English in this game, which might seem like a drag, but the game actually contains a translator for it. A minor complaint I have is that, as an English nerd, I can actually read a good majority of the Old English, and as such I have found out that some of the dialogue has a much simpler translation than I would have preferred or straight up has a different meaning. This isn't a real issue however, as even if you don't know a lot of Old English, you can mostly grab from context what the words mean.

The combat system in This Way Madness Lies is a masterclass of turn-based video game combat. Returning from other Zeboyd titles is the Unite command, in which multiple team members can combine their powers to make combat more interesting. All of these are super strong, and very fun to use.

There is no MP (or equivalent) in This Way Madness Lies, which at first might seem like a bad choice, but the way they compensate for it is very interesting, unique, and well-made. Every time you use an attack, it weakens. This is something that I think is done very well in this game. I can tell that a lot of work was put into balancing everything.  Toof often, in other turn-based RPGs, I find that multiple punishments for using moves often are enforced: MP (or equivalent), and a move limit. I don't think that move limits are a good idea for turn-based RPGs, as they often ruin the fun in them: you are forced to use a different, weaker move, and this often feels very limiting. How this differs from making the move weaker is that making the  move weaker punishes the use of it, but you can still feel the power of it, and oftentimes (as in the case of This Way Madness Lies) there is a skill that can refill how strong your move is.

Lastly is the length. I don't have too much to say on this one that hasn't been stated at length by countless others before me, but even ignoring our shortening attention spans, shorter games are a good thing. A lot of us don't have the time for a grand 80-hour RPG, some something that you can finish in 1/8 the time.

I very much enjoyed This Way Madness Lies, and I hope you give it a try. It is one of my favorite games now.

I've been koola, and I was recieved this game for free, so I pretty much had to review it.

(I would have positively reviewed it anyway. I love this game.)

In today's fast-paced world, where technology has become an integral part of our lives, it's essential to take care of our cognitive health. While there are various ways to keep our minds sharp, playing logic games and crossword puzzles stands out as one of the most effective and enjoyable methods. These mentally stimulating activities offer numerous benefits that extend beyond entertainment. In this article, we explore the importance of engaging in logic games and crossword puzzles for maintaining and enhancing cognitive abilities.

Boosts Cognitive Function
Logic games and crossword puzzles challenge our brains by requiring us to think critically, solve problems, and make connections between various pieces of information. This mental exercise helps stimulate different parts of the brain, promoting the growth of new neural connections. As a result, playing these games regularly can enhance cognitive functions, such as memory, attention, and reasoning.

Enhances Memory Retention
One of the significant advantages of playing logic games and crossword puzzles is their positive impact on memory retention. These activities demand the recollection of facts, patterns, and relationships, strengthening our memory muscles. Additionally, as we repeatedly tackle new challenges, our brains learn to store and retrieve information more efficiently.

Improves Concentration and Focus
In our increasingly distracting world, maintaining focus and concentration can be challenging. Logic games and crossword puzzles help improve these cognitive abilities by requiring sustained attention to detail and critical thinking. As players delve into complex problems, they learn to block out distractions and maintain unwavering focus. WordWays

Reduces Stress and Anxiety
Playing logic games and crossword puzzles can be an excellent way to unwind and alleviate stress. Engaging in these activities triggers the release of dopamine and endorphins, the brain's "feel-good" chemicals, which promote relaxation and reduce stress and anxiety levels. Moreover, the sense of accomplishment that comes with solving a challenging puzzle can boost one's mood and overall well-being.

Encourages Lifelong Learning
Logic games and crossword puzzles introduce players to various topics and concepts. This exposure to new information fosters a sense of curiosity and encourages lifelong learning. Moreover, as players encounter unfamiliar words or ideas, they are motivated to explore and expand their knowledge beyond the gaming environment.

Promotes Social Interaction
While logic games and crossword puzzles can be enjoyed individually, they also present opportunities for social engagement. Group puzzle-solving sessions or online gaming communities allow players to collaborate, exchange ideas, and learn from each other. Social interaction is vital for mental well-being and can lead to lasting friendships.

Delays Cognitive Decline
As we age, cognitive decline is a natural process. However, engaging in mentally stimulating activities like logic games and crossword puzzles can help delay this decline. Research suggests that individuals who regularly challenge their brains are less likely to experience cognitive impairment and are better equipped to maintain independence in their daily lives.


Logic games and crossword puzzles offer a multitude of benefits for our cognitive health and overall well-being. From boosting cognitive functions to enhancing memory retention and reducing stress, these mentally stimulating activities provide a fun and rewarding way to keep our minds sharp. By incorporating these games into our daily routines, we can nurture our cognitive abilities and enjoy a healthier, more fulfilling life. So, the next time you find yourself looking for an engaging and meaningful pastime, consider diving into the world of logic games and crossword puzzles. Yourbrain will thank you for it!

Posted under English Center, English Center Myanmar

In today's globalized world, fluency in English has become a valuable asset. However, not all English centers are created equal, and it is essential to select one that provides an authentic learning environment.

One of the key benefits of an authentic English center is the opportunity to immerse oneself in the language. By surrounding students with native English speakers and creating an atmosphere where English is the primary mode of communication, learners can develop their language skills more rapidly. This immersive experience allows students to practice their speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills in real-life situations.

Additionally, an authentic learning environment fosters cultural understanding. Language learning goes beyond grammar rules and vocabulary; it involves understanding different cultures and ways of thinking. Authentic English centers often incorporate cultural activities and discussions into their curriculum, providing students with a deeper appreciation for the language they are learning.

A personalized teaching approach is another significant advantage offered by authentic English centers. Each student has unique strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles. Authentic centers recognize this diversity and tailor their teaching methods to meet individual needs. Whether through one-on-one sessions or small group classes, instructors can provide targeted instruction that addresses specific areas for improvement.

In conclusion, choosing an authentic English center ensures a more enriching language learning experience. The benefits of an immersive environment combined with personalized teaching approaches contribute to more effective language acquisition and a deeper understanding of the English language and culture. So when selecting an English center for your language journey, prioritize authenticity for optimal results.

Posted under Steam Link, Steam Link, Steam Link hardware, Steam, Valve

I picked up a lot of things at CORGS-Con 2023. Such things included a DSi, The Orange Box, Mario Party DS, some amiibo, and... a Steam Link. My thinking was that it would be perfect for my setup, because I buy a lot of very interesting games on Steam that I want to show to other people, and I could also play Steam games on the big screen.

Did my wording right there make you think that this was a negative review? It is not. I LOVE the Steam Link, and I think it's one of the most underrated pieces of gaming hardware.

I hooked up my personal favorite controller (which is the Wii U Pro controller because I'm different) and it works beautifully for the most part. One issues I have is lag when there is a large amount of stuff on screen, it gets a bit laggy, but I think that's just the setup I have. I don't use it with Ethernet, which despite what some people may think, actually works fine for the most part.

I figured some people may be curious, so here's some games I have and their compatibility level:

F.I.S.H - Laggy sometimes, almost perfect
Geometry Dash - Very laggy
B.I.R.D. (Demo) - Perfect
Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy - Perfect
Plants vs. Zombies - Perfect
Operation STEEL - Laggy sometimes, almost perfect

Due to low sales, for a while there, Steam was offering them for five dollars. As such, you may have already bought one when they went for that cheap. I would recommend that you dust off your old one and give it a try. At least for me, it works way better than I thought it would.

I've been koola, and what's a Steam Deck?

(I've been playing waay too much Dicey Dungeons lately...)

Posted under A Retrospective, New Super Mario Bros, New Super Mario Bros Wii, New Super Mario Bros U, New Super Mario Bros 2, New Super Mario Bros U D

Well, I bet nobody expected that Nintendo Direct to be as good as it was, huh? (Maybe I'm just too pessimistic...) Regardless, it really gave some new games to look forward to, as this summer has given rise to me actually getting up and finishing a lot of games on that good ol' backlog (as well as trying out new games Lila's Sky Ark and Dicey Dungeons, which I may or may not talk about in their own future articles), meaning that I'm kind of running low on actual new games.

Super Mario Bros. Wonder is what many consider to be the highlight of that Direct. What caught a lot of people's attention (aside from the general unique art style) is the lack of a "New" on that title. Yep, just Super Mario Bros. Wonder. This is most likely the result of years of backlash that the New Super Mario Bros. series is just bad, not fun, and overall very stale, and while to some extent I do agree, I think the New Super Mario Bros. games are not as bad as people make them out to be, and I will stand on the hill that they are very fun games.

Before I start, if you'd like to consume more content relating to this topic, I'd like to point you over to Mariomikester's videos on the series. They do have language, which I do not like very much, but they are very great video essays and I highly recommend you watch them if you enjoy this article. You can find the supercut of his videos on the series here:

New Super Mario Bros.

New Super Mario Bros., colloquially known as  New Super Mario Bros. DS, was released at a rather interesting time in Mario's history; we had gone about 14 years without a 2D Mario game. So, you can see that when it was announced, a lot of people were excited. I, of course, was not existent when this was happening, so I can really only look at this from the outside looking in, but having played it myself, I really enjoy it. It controls well, looks really good for a portable game from 2006, runs well, and is just an overall good game.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii

New Super Mario Bros. Wii is actually a game that I myself have never finished. I am actually in the process of going through it right now, with the Nunchuck, which conveniently lets me talk about another point. For the most part, all of the attack buttons in New Super Mario Bros. games have been on the Y button, which is also the run button. I assume that most of us are just assuming that that is the only way to go about this, but New Super Mario Bros. Wii, specifically is you're playing with a Nunchuck, the controls that would normally be on the 1 button get split up between B on the Wii remote, and C on the Nunchuck. Run is now bound to C, and all of the attack commands (throwing a firewball, tongueing with Yoshi, etc.) are now bound to B. This sounds like it would play bad, but it actually feels really good to play.

New Super Mario Bros. 2

New Super Mario Bros. 2 is up next, which a few people might be surprised about. Actually, probably not many, because we are all collectors and know what's up with it. Either way, New Super Mario Bros. 2 is the third game in the New Super Mario Bros. series, and is a very good one. Aedmittedly, this is where the series starts to get rather stale, but that's no problem with the game itself. A common complaint I see people throw at New Super Mario Bros. 2 is that it was made by a different studio than the other games in the series. I personally think it's fine, but it is noticeable. Also, as previously stated, New Super Mario Bros. 2 came after New Super Mario Bros. Wii. This is cool, but it's pretty weird that New Super Mario Bros. 2 doesn't have the ability to spinjump, as the upcoming New Super Mario Bros. U does, as well as Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS. Additionally, a topic that I find not a lot of people bring up when talking about this game is the graphics. I  think that New Super Mario Bros. 2 is a beautiful-looking game.

New Super Mario Bros. U

Due to my age, New Super Mario Bros. U is the game out of these that I have played the most. It is the first HD Mario game, and because of that, it looks really good. It plays really well, has a lot of nice courses. Also, it comes with a challenge mode, which me and my older brother spend countless hours on when we were younger.

So, those are my thoughts on the New Super Mario Bros. games, and I'm very excited to see what Super Mario Bros. Wonder brings to the table.

I've been koola, and I don't know how to end this article.

(Elephant Mario isn't as cursed as a lot of people seem to think, especially if you look back and some of the previous power-ups we've gotten.)

Posted under travel, tr

One of the greatest pleasures of travel is indulging in the local cuisine and savoring new flavors. However, dining out can quickly eat into your travel budget if you're not careful. The good news is that you don't have to sacrifice taste or experience to eat well on a budget. In this article, we will provide a guide to finding cheap and delicious local food that will satisfy your taste buds without breaking the bank.

Explore Local Markets and Food Stalls:

One of the best ways to experience local cuisine on a budget is by visiting local markets and food stalls. These bustling hubs offer a wide range of affordable and authentic dishes. Wander through the stalls, try street food specialties, and interact with the vendors for a truly immersive culinary experience.

Research Affordable Local Eateries:

Do some research https://budget-travel-tips.com/ before your trip to identify affordable local eateries that are popular among locals. These hidden gems often serve delicious, traditional dishes at reasonable prices. Look for local recommendations, read online reviews, or ask your accommodations for suggestions. Avoid restaurants located in touristy areas, as they tend to be pricier.

Embrace Street Food:

Street food is not only a budget-friendly option but also a great way to taste the authentic flavors of a destination. From food carts to night markets, street vendors offer a variety of mouthwatering dishes at affordable prices. Look for long queues, as they often indicate popular and trustworthy vendors.

Opt for Local Specialties:

Each destination has its own culinary specialties, which are often affordable and packed with flavor. Whether it's Pad Thai in Thailand, Bh Min Vietnam, or Empanadas in Mexico, prioritize trying these local dishes. They are not only delicious but also offer a glimpse into the cultural identity of the place you're visiting.

Dine Like a Local:

Observe where the locals eat and follow their lead. Restaurants and eateries frequented by locals are more likely to offer authentic, affordable meals. Step away from the tourist areas and explore neighborhoods where residents live and work. Engage with locals to get recommendations for their favorite budget-friendly dining spots.

Take Advantage of Lunch Specials:

Many restaurants offer lunch specials or set menus at discounted prices compared to their dinner offerings. Take advantage of these deals to enjoy a satisfying meal at a lower cost. Additionally, consider having your main meal during lunchtime when prices are often more affordable than during dinner hours.

Posted under A Review, review, The Super Mario Bros Movie, game adaptations

I've always been a huge Nintendo fan, and the Mario series is one of my favorites overall.

I've also had an interest in the Gusiness Book of World Records for a while. The Gamer's Edition 2019 was the first time I heard of this new Mario movie being in production, by Illumination. In the book, they just made an offhanded comment about how Illumination came up with the Minions.

That piqued my curiosity, and I let that thought gather dust in my head for several years until mid-2021 rolled around, and Nintendo, out of the blue, just revealed the voice actors and release date for this Mario movie. I, like most, was shocked and turned off at Chris Pratt as Mario, but I was reminded he had done a good job as Emmett from The Lego Movie, so I wasn't too unhappy about it.

Fast forward about a year, and it is now October 2022. We are getting our first trailer! I was very surprised at just how high quality everything was. This is generally the same for both other trailers released.

Some day in April, (I actually forgot which), our family bought a ticket to go see the actual movie. Everything was super high quality, and even rose above my expectations. The--


Well, that was quite rude of you to cut me off like that. Anyway, as I was saying, the Bowser scenario with the pet name "Peaches" was something that I'd never really see in a Mario product, but that's actually not really a bad thing; it feels very oddly in-character for the Bowser of the Mario movie.

When I rewatched the movie yesterday, it was for a different family to celebrate one of their daughters' birthday. Aforementioned daughter we'll call K for convenience and privacy's sake.

K is a person I've known for a long time and basically have grown up with. K is also a big fan of Mario, and she had really high hopes for The Super Mario Bros. Movie. K does not have access to the majority of the internet; her only really way to get news about gaming-related stuff is the TV and the News app on her Switch.

When K, her family, and I were coming out of the theater, we were discussing the movie, and K said that the movie was good but it didn't live up to her expectations. I wondered why this could be, as we seemed to have the same experience going in. I think I know now what happened: she kept rewatching the bit that she did have and her expectations grew of the movie.

Here's another opinion I saw.

There is a person at my school with whom my personality clashes heavily. We'll call her A. When I was talking about the movie at school, A said that when she and her friends saw the movie, they absolutely hated it; they said it was the worst waste of an hour and thirty minutes they had had in a long time. At first I thought A was just trying to be mean and mess with me, but her line about her friends ALSO not liking the movie I was confused about. I don't share a lot of classes with A's friends, but I do share one. The class was going to watch a video on YouTube, and we pulled up the YouTube app, and up came Peaches from some previous activity that had totally not been of my doing (long story), and one of A's friends loudly chimes in "OH, THAT'S THE WORST SONG FROM THE WORST MOVIE!". Everybody in my friend group that had seen the movie instantly disagrees and says something positive about the movie, and an argument breaks out, which was put to rest by the teacher, and we watched the video.

I bring this up because it creates a point that I want to discuss: people who had not played the Mario games watching The Super Mario Bros. Movie. I think that if you don't get all of the references, you are going to have a way worse time with the movie. I still think the average optimistic viewer will like the movie, but they will probably rate the movie way less that those that do get the references. That is where I think the negative reviews are coming from; those people are paid to watch the movies from a point that is not their own, and rate them purely from a movie standpoint.

The best way to summarize this is thus: A person watching a video game adaptation without having played the game will not be able to appreciate it as much as people who have played the game.

This goes for The Cuphead Show!, The Last of Us, Uncharted, and everything else.

I've been koola, the GameCube intro for the phone was amazing.

(I'm glad they at least gave Charles Martinet a part.)

Posted under Music, Music, BGM, OMNIFATE

In my article "The Development of OMNIFATE", I (for about a paragraph) talked about my relatively newfound appreciation for music as a whole. So, I figured I, as a composer, would do this topic justice and give it its own article. (Also, yes, I know I already wrote an article this month, but to be honest, I'm not really proud of how that one turned out.)

(I was gonna start of this paragraph by mentioning the date when I made Wurly, but I can't remember the actual date, and my computer is literally giving me no help with that. Case and point:

Isn't technology amazing?)

When I made Wurly on [see above brackets for more information] about June 2021, I gained more of an appreciation for the true effort that goes into producing a song. Sure, there had been music I had appreciated before then, but it was mostly just Toby Fox and Jackbox soundtracks. Pretty much every game I've played since then I've had an ear for hearing the music for what it is: actual really good music.

It also helps that around 2021 I was able to create a Spotify account. I joke about having a lot of hours on YouTube, but Spotify is the service I by far have the most time on, even in just the two years I've had it. Most of my playlists on it are comprised of video game soundtracks, although recently I've added some songs from movies as well (including the Super Mario Bros Movie, which I will rewatch soon and write an article about probably next month).

Here are some of the most recent games I've played, here are my thoughts on their music.

Super Mario Land 2: Just like the rest of this game, the music has a really unique vibe to it.

The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe: AMAZING soundtrack, with pretty much no song in it having less than a 7/10 for me. Unfortunately, it is exclusive to Bandcamp, YouTube, and Steam right now, but the developers have confirmed that the soundtrack will be coming to other streaming services later this year (...the same as 2022...).

UNDERTALE: I mentioned this in the DELTARUNE article, but Toby Fox is probably my favorite video game composer. Also, yes, I did recently replay UNDERTALE.

ARK: Survival Evolved: The music gets repetitive, but in and of themselves the songs are good.

The last part of this is being a composer myself. I'm biased against my own works (which seems counterintuitive but think about the last time you went up on stage and didn't critique yourself at least once), but I have been told by early playtesters of OMNIFATE and people I've shown my music to in general that it is very well made. I myself can't wait to release the soundtrack to OMNIFATE, but of course I do have to wait until the game is out before I can. Attempting to throw away all biases, I find my music nice to listen to and better than average, but not as good as Toby Fox or Nightmargin.

Anyway, that's enough nerding out. Smiley

I've been koola, and go buy the OneShot Soundtrack from Bandcamp. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. DO IT, OR ELSE I'LL---[/i][/u]  <- Whoopsy! This is an RF Generation glitch, not my fault. The tags are written and workiong as intended on my part.

(I just described music in a written form for a dozen-ish paragraphs. If you're feeling tired of reading about music and want to hear some, here's a gift from me to you. Smiley )

Most companies rely on Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to manage the hiring process. These programs automatically scan resumes and sort applicants based on specific job requirements.

The ATS then matches job descriptions with candidates, rejecting those that don't match. To guarantee your resume passes ATS review, be sure to include keywords from the job posting in its body.

Keywords can represent any soft or hard skills relevant to the position you're applying for. Incorporating keywords into your resume helps the ATS detect you and rank you based on those competencies.

However, don't overstuff your resume with keywords - too many words can muddle the reader and irritate an ats resume checker system. Instead, focus on including a few well-placed key words that are pertinent to the job description so that your resume stands out from others.


When job descriptions are posted online or through an applicant tracking system (ATS), the system automatically scans resumes and selects the most qualified applicants. This is a tremendously helpful tool for hiring managers as it saves them both time and money by automatically eliminating low quality candidates.

To make your resume ATS-friendly, create a straightforward document that's straightforward for the system to read and comprehend. This means using standard headings and formatting that make it simple for an ATS to identify sections and keywords.

Create personalized headings for each section of your resume to avoid the ATS becoming confused and missing vital information. It is also wise to avoid acronyms and abbreviations, particularly for jobs, companies, and accreditations.

Finally, make sure to include dates for everything on your resume. Robots often approximate these dates so it's essential that they are accurate and consistent.


Most employers utilize applicant tracking systems (ATS) to filter and rank resumes to determine if they are suitable for the position. This helps hiring managers eliminate candidates with insufficient experience or qualifications.

An ATS scans your resume for keywords and other pertinent information to help recruiters identify the ideal candidate for the job. That's why it's essential to include relevant skills and experience on each resume you apply for.

Additionally, ensure the language on your resume matches the job description. This is especially crucial if you use industry-specific jargon.

Maintaining a clean, uncluttered resume is essential to passing the ATS screening. Avoid any fancy formatting that might appeal to humans but could confuse an ATS. Furthermore, remove symbols, logos, tables, and other visuals which are difficult for the ATS to parse or interpret.


Applicant tracking systems (ATSs) are software programs that assist human resources departments and recruiters in screening resumes to find the ideal match. ATSs work by scanning a resume for keywords and matching them against job descriptions.

Utilizing the correct keywords on your resume can make your document stand out from others and boost its chances of being contacted for an interview. When creating a resume, be sure to include words pertinent to both the job and position you are applying for.

Additionally, use standard fonts such as Arial and Helvetica instead of using fancy ones like Typewriter. Avoid including logos or fancy shapes that could be difficult for an ATS to parse. Other ATS-friendly features include using proper sizes for fonts, aligning headings correctly and verifying dates are correct. It might be beneficial to check your resume using a free online resume checker to see if it will impress the ATS.
