    Release Reicast

    Sega's competitor to the PS1 was the Saturn. The Dreamcast was in the same generation as the PS2 but it came out more than one year earlier.

    Finished Megaman 4 I don't know if it's because it's the fourth game, because it's the first I play without a fix/improvements romhack or if there's a real drop in quality but I didn't enjoy it as much as 2 and 3. It has many screens where you have to die a few times to understand how it works...

    Absurdism corner

    According to the orientation of the holes, the adapter would be vertical and not horizontal. In the second image they aren't using the same plugs in the before and after pictures, probably because the 45° angle would have them look weird, plus I'm not sure the last fat plug would leave enough...

    The Communication Cube

    I'm more bothered by the limitations it puts on the art direction. Mirror's Edge is getting old but it's still one of the best looking games out there, not because it's realistic but because it has an amazing art direction.

    COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic

    I think the people who look down upon "sheep" compare themselves to wolves rather than goats. Using a completely outdated view of wolves. That "wolves vs sheep" metaphor is touted by some right-wing talking heads because it pushes people to a more individualistic approach, dividing the masses...

    I find the wind noise to be a bit too strong, it makes me feel like there's a highway nearby.

    In French, it was translated to something like: "By the power of the Ancestral Skull, I own the Almighty Strength!"

    Finished Megaman 3 (with a romhack to get rid of slowdowns and fix a few problems) It's good. It's quite similar to Megaman 2 except that you can slide and have a dog. It's also the first megaman game where I could beat a boss without having the right weapon, which was nice. There aren't so many...

    That's the Modern Monetary Theory. It doesn't apply to countries of the Eurozone since they can only spend the money the EU central bank loans them. But a EU-wide decision could still lead to something similar.

    COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic

    There are already a few mandatory vaccines for healthcare workers (and some other workers as well) in France. There are also some mandatory vaccines for children. The vaccine pass however is a legal clusterfuck: the QR code you're supposed to show contains personal medical data, which isn't...

    I've finished both Megaman and Megaman 2. The first one is not too bad, but it has a few very hard screens. I was glad I had state saves to avoid having to replay whole levels just to die repeatedly on the same screen and then start over. That yellow boss was quite difficult, but it felt good...

    Most consent popups actually aren't legal according to GDPR but until some company gets fined for this we'll probably keep having them. But it turns out that they're not that useless: many users took the pain of choosing to deactivate all optional cookies. So many that a few websites now have a...

    I finished Zelda II on my Pandora, with a romhack meant to make the game less frustrating. It was definitely not too bad, even though I probably wouldn't have really cared if it wasn't a Zelda game. I used guides to get the location of some secrets (because walking the whole map to find the...

    There's a difference between work and job. It's good to be able to work, but not everyone is happy with having a job.

    I think Null was refering Pinky and the Brain

    I've only played the PC-Engine version, I don't like the look of the Dracula X Chronicles and from what I've read it's not really an improvement over the original.

    Finished Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin. It's a good one. It's got one castle but there are paintings inside that lead to individual levels. The quality of the levels isn't even, some are extremely good while others aren't very interesting. You can switch between two characters, which helps push...
