I got a big whiff of nostalgia today.

Okay, so if you're unaware, all consoles in LBP have a jingle at this point, (except for things like developers kits) and if they don't, they need one.

Anyways, recently I was reading up on the Dolphin emulator and how they're actively trying to fix compatibility with a certain piece of microcode called the "Zelda µcode".

Their biggest hurdle left is the Main Menu for the GameCube, and the moment I saw that in the list with the rest on the blog post, it just brought me back. I had a GameCube as a kid, and I've never really took interest in what made the GameCube so great even back in 2001. So, I grabbed the latest version of the emulator, stole a BIOS, and loaded a random game up in the emulator, and disabled skipping that BIOS.

I died of nostalgia.

The sounds during the menu brought me back to the days back in 2005 or so when my sister and I would turn on the console before putting a game in. And that menu popped up every time. Those sounds were captivating.

I learned that when the menu was sped up 16 times, it was playing the theme of the Famicom Disk System. So I thought about making a new console (Not Skyton's) theme, but make the background music of the menu based on the Medius' theme. But since all I do is make beats, and not auras of ambiance, this'll be difficult to pull off taking that into consideration.

Not because we need to bring back the Medius all of the sudden, but because I liked the Medius' theme, and I wanted to do something to honor my innovation of breaking through my not-spectacular logic skills. That's all.

Any more and he'll start ripping quotes straight from hacker.actor.

We need to navigate the neural png capacitor!

The hdd capacitor is down, navigate the mobile capacitor so we can input the sas matrix!

There were some even cringier ones there.

Use the wireless sql interface, then you can calculate the mobile program!

We need to connect the online usb circuit!

Try to bypass the gigabyte capacitor, maybe it will generate the haptic monitor!

Man, LBP's like a reflection of that, isn't it...

Exactly, my friend. History repeats itself, or people are alike all over, or however you say it. I see many connections like this between times past and present.

If you're already catching up to the eighth generation of IRL consoles in terms of features, you are way beyond any other competitors.

:o

I can't think of making an efficient,awesome chip that would run any Console I make...

Like, you can't invent an engine? Perhaps try some experimenting with dud consoles or props(temporary rigs made to test features and stuff). But if you really feel you're not qualified, maybe stick to games for now. It's good practice.

Edit: WE NEED TO REVERSE THE POLARITY ON THE FLUX CAPACITOR!

Pong for the Medius was the first game I made, and even then there were problems with it. Every single time during gameplay, the ball wouldn't recognize the upper-left corner of the Medius' collision barriers and it would fly straight out like even it didn't want to be a part of the launch. You were right to call yours Better Pong because it probably worked better.

History repeats itself; I see many connections like this between times past and present.

Except when the console wars started there were tons of 'em in the 80's. Tons. Now there's so little.

:o

I know, right?

Better Pong was actually a dub name to differentiate, it was officially just Pong :P

Well, there were tons of consoles in LBP2, and now there's so little in LBP3. That was part of my point actually

My burn game is unusually high. inb4 permaban 4 lyfe

Most of my consoles are sequels or additions to another line. I've made 4 main lines, 1 of which is discontinued, another one I've dropped support on. Back then though, there weren't many other consoles. It wasn't until I release NeXT that we started to get things like Ignis, Kowan's stuff (which then lead him on to create other consoles), UV Core, Medius, etc. Then it started to become an issue and hence why I didn't release a brand new console until 2.5 years later with MusicPlayer.

Because it isn't a 360 or PS3 and these system processes don't need to be going on all the time. If they were simply emitted when needed then the thermometer would have a much nicer time.

Once again, you are merely ahead of the competition. I support the emitter idea you're thinking of here, but not the fact that they aren't comparable to the recent generation. Even though it's obvious they don't work the same on the inside, the features could easily be replicated. Except for Linux support on the PS3. That would take decades of work.

Tbf I didn't get it either

Your burns are getting kind of ambiguous in nature

I implicitly stated it was a burn nonetheless... but then again, "if your joke has to be explained its not really that funny"...
