hey all! poking my nose into the fediverse beehive again, i'm nicole, she/her pronouns, i like old computers, game consoles, cats, and other random things-- feel free to follow if you like! #introduction
on #MAR10Day i would like to remind you that emulating the old super mario brothers games on your personal computer is perfectly fine and acceptable
I put Alien Crush and Devil's Crush on my virtual pinball machine; unfortunately, playing them with the same controls and same screen I use for modern pinball drives home how bad the physics are, I never really noticed before :x
(also a 4:3 screen on the middle of a 9:16 playfield monitor looks super silly but what did you expect)
If you're curious about the pinball table, I wrote a blog post https://nicole.express/2020/modding-the-toyshock-haunted-house.html
And if you're curious about the cat... well, I did write a post on that too last year :p https://nicole.express/2019/april-fools-joke.html

When he was eventually captured by the Romans, he tried to kill himself with poison, but failed due to to his immunity.
