Black Lives Matter–a Statement

I am finally getting around to writing my thoughts down about the current Black Lives Matter movement. To skip the tl;dr, I and this blog support Black Lives Matter. I have no interested in debating what is essentially basic human rights, if you disagree please kindly show yourself the door.

George Floyd was murdered by the police. He is one of many people who have been murdered by the police. Police officers who have murdered black people simply do not face consequences, and go on to terrorize and hurt more people. This needs to stop. We need to stop militarizing the police, we need to demand better training for police officers, and we to hold our officers accountable. (I have thought on this long and hard and I don’t think this goes far enough. Abolishing the police is really the only answer.) In my profession in the hospital there are consequences for us inflicting harm on a patient. The fact that police have weapons and less accountability then the people I work with is wrong.

Police Departments are disproportionately targeting black people. This is a national crisis. The lack of response by the people in Washington is unacceptable, and I will call my representatives and demand change.

I support the protesters. I think they’re right. Unfortunately due to my health conditions, I cannot go out and protest, but I am doing whatever I can to send money and supplies to those who need it. I will support those on the front lines in any way I can. And while a majority of the protesters are peaceful, I also think black lives are more important then property, so if destruction of property happens, so be it.

Now here’s the honest truth. I am white as fuck. I do not have black friends. I do not know what it truly means to be black in America, or what it means to be a good ally. But I am committed to learning. I am going to read articles and literature. I am going to strive to be better. I am self-centered, but I will learn to understand when I need to shut the fuck up and let black voices speak instead.

While I’m not the best at updating my blog, I am also going to focus on highlighting projects from black people that I think look cool whenever I can.

This is my statement. The time to complacent is over. Change needs to happen.

To finish this off, here’s a link of petitions, fundraisers etc to consider supporting. I’m particularly fond of the Columbus Freedom Fund which pays the bail for those arrested protesting in Columbus.

This Blog Supports Black Lives Matter

THIS BLOG SUPPORTS BLACK LIVES MATTER~ NO IFS ANDS OR BUTS.

I would like to get an actual post out about this, but two things. One I am very sick (fighting a kidney infection). Two, I don’t want to write a lengthy post and talk over black voices, especially when they’re saying what needs to be said and doing it much better. I’m still trying to find a balance between speaking out and not overshadowing.

In the meantime please take a moment to enjoy my new favorite black owned blog, Blerdy Otome , which features visual novel reviews. Check out this post for more awesome black creators you should be following.

In the meanwhile, I am posting on my twitter highlighting black projects among other things. Follow me @Pumpkaboocoffee.

All in all, fuck the police, and black lives matters.

Princess Maker 3 is hot garbage

For anyone planning to buy Princess Maker 3 on Steam, I’m here to warn you: Do not buy. It was so bad that I played for four minutes and refunded it. I have never refunded a game on Steam before in my life.

Now there are reviews on the steam page warning you not to buy, but I didn’t believe it was that awful. I bought and played Princess Maker 1 and 2 on Steam, which had similar complaints in the reviews. Let’s just say Princess Maker 3, in it’s current state, is on another level.

In the first four minutes of Princess Maker 3, I ran into the following problems.

1.) The font is a thin white or black font that is near impossible for someone who has bad vision (like me) to read.

2.) If you can read it, the script is full of typos and errors. Sentences start will lower case letter, and there are random commas. Word wrap doesn’t work properly either, so words just trail off the screen.

3.) In windowed mode, the images look blurry and unfocused. Making it full screen makes it looks worse, and apparently according to reviews, leads to the game crashing. You cannot change the resolution of windowed mode to make it better.

4.) The translation is really bad. I thought it was passable in Princess Maker 1 and 2, but for 3 it’s clear no time or effort was put into it.

Honestly it seems like CFK Co., Ltd, the company that releases these games on Steam did a rush job on this, and it shows. It would probably be better if the scrapped it and redid the translation with much more care and effort. I was really excited to play this, and am very disappointed. In six months to a year I’ll check up on it, and if the issues have been resolved, I’ll purchase it, but not until this is fixed.

Works in Progess

Guys! Work has been so busy and stressful I haven’t had a chance to write anything. Unfortunately paying the bills comes first! It seems to have calmed down, and I’m working on a few things right now, and will hopefully have more in the upcoming weeks.

Also I love and enjoy all your comments but if I don’t have a chance to log in the only way I can see them is in my email. Unfortunately sometimes they get stuck in my spam filter and I don’t see them! I’m so sorry guys, I will see any comments the next time I log in if I miss them. Unfortunately that sometimes may be awhile.

Pokemon Sweet 2th Nuzlocke part 4

We finally catch some other pokesweets, thank god.

Get Pokemon Sweet 2th Here!

Remember these rules.

1. If it faints, it’s dead and as it’s a corpse it can no longer battle. 

2. All pokesweets must be nicknamed 

3. Catch only the first pokesweet on every route. You cannot catch duplicates of a species. If you run into the same pokesweet on a route, keep searching until you find a new one. If there’s nothing new, touch luck. If it faints when you try to catch it, that’s it and you don’t get a pokesweet for that route. There is one exception–if I encounter a shiny, I can catch it. I cannot catch legendaries no matter what. If the game requires I catch one, it’s to be boxed and not used.

Working on my blog a little

Hello! I’ve made some changes. If you see them everything’s okay, I haven’t updated the place in years.

  • Blog Title has changed. I hated the name.
  • All the pages were outdated, showed how disgusting I was as a teenager, and taken down. I will update them in the future with relevant info.
  • I got a personal subscription because I had the money, and don’t believe in my readers seeing ads when I have the money to change that. I also got a domain too. I’d be more excited if I didn’t think it was garbage that WordPress makes my readers see ads.

Otherwise, I’d like to make/draw a new banner for the site.

VA-11 HALL-A

I made a video showing off the first half hour of VA-11 HALL-A because it’s a great game and I love it. VA-11 HALL-A is a cyberpunk visual novel where you play Jill, a bartender in Glitch City trying to make rent, and the writing as well as all the little details is amazing. 10/10 game, would serve drinks again.

Hardcore Henry Review

Better once in a blue moon then never, right? I went and saw Hardcore Henry tonight, and have a non-spoiler review. For anyone who also follows me on my tumblr at atelierjanette.tumblr.com, it is cross-posted there as well. Enjoy!

I really liked Hardcore Henry.

Hardcore Henry is sitting at a 51% on Rotton Tomatoes. I went to see to see it tonight and had a great time. It wasn’t the best movie ever, but it was what a movie needs to be–satisfying.
