Not quite a themed post like I usually do, but I have a huge backlog and ran into a bit of a few assorted posts. I did try to put it in chronological order of time taken and whatnot. The top photos down to the flowers were the last ones I took of the nature trail, and the last two photos are when we went to a Japanese Garden thing with Koi fish and turtles
Last MK8 post for awhile. I think you all will get what Shy-Guy looks like in his eight different colors, especially if you’ve played MKDS before.
I was more surprised in how they placed these new tracks, as I thought they would place them in a third row below the current two rows (seeing as the credits roll on the special and lightning cups). But I guess for being able to see all the map thumbnails correctly, they filled the screen from left to wright with the new cups being on the right side.
Sorry for the wall-spam of MK8 DLC stuff, I’m very enthusiastic about the Mario Kart series and seeing as I have recording software and stuff to take screenies, I thought this was a perfect opportunity to show people the brand new software.
I took screenshots of the new DLC Nintendo put out today. The full versions won’t release until November and May, but if you preorder both you get all those colors for Yoshi and Shyguy, as well as those icons to taunt you for half to a full year. GAH.
Took the screenshots a few minutes ago. I can some more of what Yoshi looks like in his colors, and then what ShyGuy looks like in his, but they’ll have to be in separate posts being 8 different colors.
Another tiny nature we saw on the nature path! We saw at least three or four of these natures around, and they just hung out on the paths despite the foliage next to them providing ample food and cover from the birds above.
Bunnies what even could you be doing on the gravel. There is NOTHING there that should be of interest.
I also tacked on the last three photos mainly due to not wanting to make another small post for them. Eh.
On the 29th of July, RushtheFort became one year old! Toderico and I decided to celebrate the occasion with a visual overhaul of our channel, as well as a marathon of the Wind Temple in Wind Waker HD. I feel bad when Todd is left doing most of the work for our channel (he edits, renders, and uploads the videos), so I was glad to take on the job of drawing our new banner and icon. To be totally honest, our original banner and icon were meant to be placeholders from the start, but after a while I suppose we both forgot about that. =P
Todd also recently updated our RushtheFort Tumblr page, and I think it looks absolutely fantastic.
If you don’t understand a word I’m saying and have no idea what the heck “RushtheFort” is, it’s a Let’s Play channel on Youtube that I co-host along with my friend Toderico. We play games both old and new, and do commentary over them. Check us out, and if you like our videos, it really helps to subscribe.
Hey! I helped with the idea stuff for the banner too ya know!
But yea, I felt the need to reblog this. I don’t typically reblog junk, as my Tumblr is primarily OC stuff, but in a way my Let’s Play show is OC in itself if-you-exclude-the-games-we-use-for-footage-which-falls-into-fair-use. I know it’s a bit much to ask, but you all should totally check out either or tumblr or youtube channel itself (or both hmmm?). If you like the humor in my photo-posts, then you’ll love our improv-styled commentary! I almost guarantee it!
Dragonflies that we saw while looking at those deer from earlier! The first one had some awesome scale looking exoskeleton scale things; the second one was nice in the sense that it worked with the composition of the rest of the shot.
Dragonflies are pretty awesome, although they rarely stop flying enough to nab a shot.
These are two deer we saw on the very same nature trail, or at least the only two we could really see clearly. They were also a bit desensitized, as was proven by a loud teenager complaining about her boyfriend or something to other people in her group that walked by as I was taking photos (I was afraid they would’ve scared the deer away, and I don’t get why no one else was stopping to view nature in action while on, I dunno, a nature trail?)
But yea, they were somewhat close to the trail, probably 20 feet away maybe? Deer tend to look at the camera a lot more than Turkeys do, as you can see by how many shots there were of just that.
The “:v” face on facebook is so far one of my favorite emotes, and tonight while chatting with a friend, I had the urge to put the sunglasses from the “B|” emote on the “:v” one. Eventually it led to this!
I’m…. I’m not sorry.
I’ll link to the transparent “:v” file that I enlarged using GIMP later tonight or so, apparently I had saved over it with the sunglasses version, whoops!
Turkeys! We went walking on this trail and these two giant turkeys where walking really close to the path! A lot of joggers just kept on running, but it appeared that these birds were pretty desensitized of people, so they didn’t get frightened; to be honest we were more afraid of them attacking us with how confident they were. At one point, as you see in the photos above, one of them stared straight at me!
We had intended on seeing nature when we went on that trail, but we didn’t expect two whole turkeys to pass by us and practically pose for the camera.
