Earlier, I had an idea for a tabletop game I want to make or see made: Video Game Simulator 2016.

It would largely play like most other tabletop RPGs, but with the twist that things normally exclusive to video games could occur, such as invisible walls, players clipping through world geometry, or NPCs being stuck in walk cycles while not moving.

(Credit to +Ryan Morgenlander​ for coming up with the name.)

I know people comment on Matt Smith's chin and forehead, but it never quite hit me just how pronounced his chin and the place where his eyebrows should be are until I had to trace around them in Photoshop.

PR committee: an educational experience.

I also learned Spock's hair is quite as smooth up close as it appears to be from a distance.  It is still pretty smooth though.

Does anyone know anything about getting unresponsive 3DS face buttons repaired (ideally, for less than the $85+shipping Nintendo charges)?

Introduction

I am a 21-year-old game and software designer and developer.

I enjoy programming, level design, and user interface/user experience design, and I have extensive experience and skills in those areas—I have been teaching game and software design and development since high school.  I also enjoy drawing, 3D modeling, 2D and 3D animation, acting, and singing.  In my spare time, I also enjoy promoting wave, spinning poi, cosplaying, geeking out over sci-fi, and writing lyrics (usually parodies of existing songs) from time to time.  And normal things, such as playing video games and reading.

If you are interested in some of the things I make, you can check out my apps, wave gadgets (for Google Wave, Shared SpacesApache Wave, and similar systems), Portal maps, and other tech shenanigans.

Bragging rights
I can write a web app on a bus ride, and I spin fire poi.

One of the best, if not the best, Japanese restaurants in the area. They have a comprehensive selection of Japanese food and drinks and good service. The food is kind of expensive, but usually worth it.

Much of the food was mediocre. The main buffet had a good selection, but a lot of the other dinner locations served food of low to mediocre quality. The events were decent, but not all were very well-advertised. The club, Galaxy, had great atmosphere but odd, inconsistent music chosen by the DJ.

Amazing selection of comics, DVDs, and video games. The selection of amiibo was lacking, but the selection of other figurines and actual games was outstanding.
