Peter ‘Beandick’ Dutton

Monday, June 19th, 2017

I’ve been playing a cute little game called Tomodachi Life on the 3DS. Since the Wii, Nintendo consoles have these things called Miis—goofy people you design that you can use in some games—and this game involves filling an apartment building with them and dressing them up, making them do songs, keeping them happy, etc. The idea with Miis is that you make one to represent yourself, and yours and your friends’ live in each others’ systems. Tomodachi Life expands on this by making you give them personalities, lets you interact with them, and encourages you to make all sorts of different ones. A little searching will dig up lots of Mii versions of celebrities and things, and these can be shared with QR codes.

So I made Peter Dutton, and decided to treat him horribly. You have to give them a nickname, so I went with ‘Beandick’. Yeah, I dunno.

Here he is getting interviewed on the news:

Here he is looking lonely in a Japanese hotel while I hang on the door doing ninja stuff?

I only fed him once.

This is the time he sold colonial uniforms in the park:

Snoop Dogg wasn’t into it.

Here’s a shot of him giving me money:

Here’s a song I wrote for him to sing:

And here’s his QR code if you want to borrow him:

I’ve been trying to make a sequel to my game Castlevania 10, but been struggling a bit. To remind myself of the first game I went looking for the video of it someone had recorded and turned up some new ones (by other people)!

This was the first one I found, and is by a funny Finnish fellow called Kermakastikeritari. Browsing his videos also lead me to Mat Dickie, and I’m looking forward to playing through some of his games some time soon.

 

This one’s by Noyb, who I know from Glorious Trainwrecks. He runs some nice game-related blogs, too.

 

And these are both by bankbank, who I’m pretty sure is part of Quimdung. The last video is the current official world record, though I think it’s pretty beatable.

It’s about time I mentioned something that I have actually been doing:
