We were at my grandparents’ house for Easter today, and my brother brought along the Nintendo Wii for our cousins to play
Only he forgot the sensor bar :T the thing that makes the wii-motes work and junk
Then he remembered this crazy myth he heard basically said if you light two candles, they act as a sensor bar.
I DON’T KNOW HOW
BUT IT TURNS OUT IT FUCKING WORKS.
So if you ever lose or break the sensor bar, and don’t mind your TV looking like an offering to Satan, I recommend candles :I
I’ll remember that for the next time my sensor bar stuffs up…
This also works with flashlights, in case you don’t have any candles handy. c:
The “sensor” bar doesn’t actually have any sensors. The sensors are in the Wii-mote. The sensor bar is actually just a line of infrared LEDs that an IR camera in the Wii-mote can see, which means you can substitute other IR sources, like candles and flashlights.
Science, hail Satan.

Ah this took a long time to set up. I had to constantly rearrange them because I ran out of room on my bed to add around 30 more XD Otherwise enjoy this update!

In any other scenario the remark, “This isn’t a game,” would be an acknowledgment that, in fact, it’s much more important than that.– Lucy Prebble

Some people say video games rot your brain, but I think they work different muscles that maybe you don’t normally use.

It’s not hard to put women in games. Capcom’s done it itself, with the really rather excellent Dragon’s Dogma. Dark Souls, to which Deep Down owes a lot more than a nod and a wink, did it. If you can put in a gazillion different kinds of armour and weapon you sure can take a little bit of time away from lovingly sculpting Grunt #6′s pectoral muscles to hastily slap together another option (or give players the ability to do it themselves in customisation), then award yourself a tea and a bun for a job if not well done than at least done at all. Better lazily-crafted women than no women at all. A for effort, and all that.– Deep Down the rabbit hole of ingrained games industry sexism | VG247 (via missflt) Via Discover Games
