The Year of Luigi games that weren’t from Nintendo ⊟
Some of the neatest Luigi games that released last year were ROM hacks of NES titles released by fans! Sure, there’s already a Dr. Luigi game on the Wii U eShop, but I like that this version from Shugo notes it’s a “Year of Luigi” edition on the title screen.
And while Super Luigi Bros. isn’t played in reverse like the identically titled, official hack included with NES Remix 2, it features “30” blocks to celebrate the green guy’s birthday, similar to what we saw in Nintendo’s 25th Anniversary Super Mario Bros. hack.
And then there’s Luigi Bros., a Donkey Kong hack where Luigi has to save his brother, and Luigi dropped into Konami’s platformer Moai Kun — I cheated on that one because it released in 2012, but it’s worth checking out anyway.
The Year of Luigi officially ends today, according to Nintendo. Why not celebrate it by playing some of these hacks?
Anonymous asked: Since you reblogged that post about rape culture and disabilities that mentions deaf people, I just wanted to let you know that a lot of deaf and hard of hearing people don't consider themselves disabled. It depends on the person and their experiences, but talking about deaf people as disabled can be considered offensive and harmful. Audism is a good thing to google if you want to research it. Just for future reference. :)
Huh interesting, thanks!
Finally I can put my (almost (I’m 3 credits short)) Deaf Culture Studies minor to use on Tumblr!
This is true. A lot of Deaf people don’t like being called disabled. One reason is a lot of hearing people associate hearing as a fundamental part of communication and Deaf people can communicate just fine with ASL or whatever sign language they use. Deaf people can do pretty much everything that hearing people can do and (unsurprisingly) do some things better. Did you know Deaf and Hard of Hering (HoH) people get in less car accidents than hearing people per capita?
Some Deaf people prefer being called differently abled but some don’t because for a number of reasons so ask before you use that term as well.
The best thing to do is called Deaf people deaf (or whatever they prefer if they are okay with disabled or differently abled) and not treat them like they can’t possibly understand them just because they can’t hear you perfectly. Never yell or talk slowly either because that typically makes it harder for those who read lips to understand you.
Also, capital D Deaf is a cultural identity and lowercase d deaf is just a statement on one’s hearing ability. Lots of HoH people identify as Deaf and some people that are completely deaf don’t identify as Deaf, especially if they have hearing aides or cochlear implants.
at one time, the HPDH2 script had draco walking across the courtyard to his parents
until he saw that harry was alive
at which point he shouted
and ran back
across the courtyard
away from his parents
