So, I think that I can say that my last post was good. Thank you to everyone that said that it was good! I didn't think that it would be like that! Back to the point at hand. (Not like I even started with a point... [wait I'm delaying myself even more my saying that ARRRRRRRRRGhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh])


So, I think that most of my family can agree that my hobby is glitching/breaking/bugging-out/bugging out games. (Heck, I've even broken the hyperlinked images on my blog. If it doesn't show reload the page. [Sorry, bickman2k.]) Traditionally breaking games is easy, if you know where to pick at. Platformer genre in general is all about clipping into things. Role-playing, executing more than one move at once, or dealing too much damage at once. Shooter, clipping and dealing too much damage at once. You probably can guess. PC games allow you to mess with the games files, allowing you to break the game(s) really easy. Here's an example:

Say Example: The Movie: The Game wants to access file1.fileex And file2.fileex is something you want to break the game by accesing earlier than intended.

Rename file2.fileex to file1.fileex (Usually most files in a game like this that ae gonna work are of the same file extension, in this case .fileex , but if they are of different extensions, then they need to be the same.)

And, if your game didn't crash, then congratulations, you've caused the game to load the wrong file!

Now usually it will carry out instructions that are contained in the file that it just loaded. (file2.fileex)

(If you're wondering how I glitched out the hyperlinked images on RFGeneration, I created a .png file with only one letter in its base:m. By doing that, most websites will cause them to not even show an image, breaking the tag altogether. [If I hurt your feelings bickman2k, then sorry.])




Now here's the part where coding comes in. Most of my breaking games actually helps in coding because then it's easy to understand what's going on behind the scenes in the games. I've seen t-poses, a-poses, unanimated models and sprites, completely given up games, confused games, black screens and wait--

Rebooting MerryGoRoundGaming's_trying_to_write_an_article.exe...

Success!

Anyways, as I was saying, I've seen a lot of how games break. And that helps me code, because I know what the polished developers do.

Coding is fun, but often times it can be very repetitve. Variables are my friend. It is fun to code, in my opinion.

In summary, I just like to test things and see what I can mess with.

Whew! I haven't gotten to geek out like that in a while!

Posted under Listing my favorite games, slackur, life in general, video games, list

Hello, everybody! I finally worked up enough courage to write an article on here. It was mostly slackur that helped me work up the courage so kudos to him. Speaking of which, I am his son. I have said this many times over, but this feels kinda final, y'know? Now, obviously, living in a house with well over 15,000 games will be making you want to play them. slackur has a rule in his house so that every  hour we are outside is  hour of screen time. On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays I have to be outside, using the aformentioned rule, Play with my younger brother and his therapist or do chores to earn screen time. On Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays I can play video games whenever I so choose. Game genres like RPGs, Puzzles and Sandboxes and Platformers appeal to me. I'm actually making my way through Miitopia right now. This is a list of my favorite games, in no particular order.
 
I feel like I want to get at least a "good amount of video games" but I do feel like my collection is too small at times. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is one of my favorite games. I really like playing it, but I did get bored of it. Sometimes I wonder if I get too bored of games too often...
                                                               
 

Miitopia has quickly became one of my favorite games lately. I've been playing it pretty much whenever I have an excuse to. I don't really have any "good aspects of it" to list, it's just a good game overall.
                                               


Like Animal Crossing, Tomadachi Life is one of those games that you can just unwind and play. I would say it is very different to people, most people think it's too boring, others think it's really fun. I think it is really fun, myself, which is why I'm putting it on this list.



Nintendo Land is a party game that I would reccomend. Some people say that it's Gimmicks: The Game, which to that, I say "It's definitely not." If you haven't yet, grab a few friends and play this game. It's definitely worth your while. Just, play this game with friends that trust you.



Mario Party 10 is another great party game. I listed "Mario Party 10" and not "Super Mario Party" because, I like Mario Party 10's Bowser Party Mode. If you're playing Bowser Party, definitely play it with people that really trust you, because it can get really hectic. And speaking of hectic...



Cuphead is not my kind of game, but It's definitely one that I'd reccomend. Play it, and you'll understand why.



Luigi's Mansion 3 is a game that really blew me away. I played some of "Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon", (or Luigi's Mansion 2 If you're not from South Korea or North America), and I just didn't really like it at all. But, when Luigi's Mansion 3 came out, I thought I'd give the series a second chance. And boy, did I like Luigi's Mansion 3. it was one of my favorite games of 2019, actually. It's a puzzle game, and a really funny one, at that.



Now, I love coding and I kinda like puzzle games, so what about a game that combines those two things?
Baba Is You is my favorite game. You control a critter called Baba, and you move blocks. But that's not all. The actual rules of the game, are, themselves, blocks that can be pushed around, allowing you to completely mess with the game. Now, I like glitching/messing around with games, and Baba Is You is a playground encouraging breaking the game up to solve the puzzles.


 
Now, I dwove many hours into the original Super Mario Maker, just messing around with it, and seeing what I could do in it. Now, you can imagine my surprise and love when the sequel was announced. I sold a lot of my game collection just to get this one game. Granted, most of those were games I did never play, but still.



Now, me, my older brother, my friend and her sister used to play Castle Crashers all the time. When they announced Castle Crashers Remastered, I knew I had to pick it up. And so far, slackur hasn't gotten Castle Crashers Remastered yet. So that's a game that I have that he doesn't! (At least on Switch, anyway)


And that just about does it for my favorite games list. I thank you for reading you all the way through!
