#can anyone source these These should all be from SNK fighting games like The Last Blade, The King of Fighters ‘xx (where xx is any year from 97 to 2003), Samurai Showdown, and Garou: Mark of the Wolves.
can we talk about how amazing the backgrounds are in some of those 90s fighting games

We think of extinction events in terms of populations, in terms of species but we forget to acknowledge that extinction can happen to people. We forget the minds of the hominids that lived and died unless we’re debating skills and cranial capacities. Neandertals were highly encephalised and I would argue fully capable of a large suite of deep and complex feelings. We’re only now beginning to acknowledge that species other than humans can feel complex emotions; Neandertals certainly did.
So, at some point, perhaps in a glacial refugia ~28kya, I wonder about a family of eight individuals that slowly dwindled into extinction. Three died of old age, two during a hunt, one of sickness and one during childbirth. Leaving only one man, a single intelligent individual who had watched his population decline, who had heard stories from his nan about way back when there were more of their kind, before even she was born. But he doesn’t hope to find others like him anymore amongst the tall, lanky newcomers with their foreign technology that now populate the land. He is 30 and has migrated his whole life across this territory and he hasn’t seen another group like his since he was a child. And now he’s old and alone and knows better than to hope so he sits down with his toolkit and cuts a few pieces of leather off his tunic and plaits them to pass the time and remembers when he was young, when his granddad taught him how to knap and he wonders who will bury him like he buried his own.
I don’t know what they are called but your last submission made me think of these ones I found near Santa Barbara Ca
Hi, aren’t these fulgurites? The structure that forms when lightning hits or burrows into sand.
I saw Suzanne and met Nick (finally) at MoCCA, and all-around had a nice time. My thanks to everyone who stopped by. The only other people whose names I was able to catch were Lance and Stanley, with both of whom I had nice chats. …Almost forgot to mention that even K.C. Green stopped by. Thanks! It makes me wish that I could have more stories finished to turn into books.
This is the first year it’s been run under the auspices of the Society of Illustrators, and that meant we got a much nicer setup. But there was no pre-signup for next year like there was in previous years. Because of this, it’s difficult to say whether or not I’ll be able to be present next year, but I’ll try.
If I’m there, I hope to see you there.
talikira replied to your video: I’ve been thinking about this series a lot lately…… Ahh, it reminds me so much of FF6. @A@ I think I would love this game…
Unfortunately, they were never officially translated. However, Romancing SaGa 1 got a remake for the Playstation 2 with the subtitle “Minstrel’s Song”.
Romancing SaGa 3 received a romhack translation from fans.
I’ve been thinking about this series a lot lately… Romancing SaGa and the original SaGa series on the Game Boy.
The Science of Aging
Why do we age, from a biological perspective? Are we really programmed to die?
Remembered this today. Made me laugh…
these are remakes, right? oooooh, please post more stuff like this QwQ
This is the only remake page that exists in all NofNA works. The original page was made on May 17th, 2007. It was replaced on August 23rd of that same year after I realized I was going to be in it for the long run.
i do not recall if this is the exact quote and i do not have access to my 10%+ addendum currently
it’s 1am and this took half an hour
then entire thing was done without zooming in, plus my hands are shaky as fuck from being sick
going to write a paragraph about my feels in a few
This is the first 10%+ Addendum art by a fan.
Thank you for your kind words as well.
