1) For anyone that has an Intuos 4 drawing tablet, the cord input (the part of the tablet where the mini-USB cord plugs in) on mine has started to become loose and wiggly. If the cord moves in a way it doesn't like, it causes the tablet to lose connection with the computer... Currently this isn't causing any more than a minor annoyance, but I worry it might get worse. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience in dismantling an Intuos 4, and whether or not it'd be a good/bad/possible idea to unscrew the back of my tablet with the hopes of setting the cord input firmly into place.
2) I haven't been on Steam in forever-and-a-half, and am curious if there's been any good Metroidvania titles released in the last two or so years. The closest to the genre that I've found on Steam was 1000 Amps (which I really enjoyed). I heard that Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet had been ported, but everything I've read on it makes it seem less Metroid-y than I like (I love getting that provide benefits apart from just accessing new areas, like how the Wave Beam does more damage /and/ lets you shoot through walls). If only they'd port Shadow Complex to... anything... I don't plan on buying an Xbox 360 just to play it.
3) I've been thinking of putting together a commission price sheet, but lack a digital example of a monochrome picture! I just need one test subject, and I'll use a random number generator to pick a "winner" on early Sunday morning (which will actually be sometime around 7pm Sunday evening for me). For anyone interested, just include your favorite kind of pie in the reply box, and I'll give you a number ^^ It'll just be a simple, single character pose done in lines and shading, somewhat like how Pepper looks in this picture, only... y'know... actually looking good. Recipient would be free to do with it as they wish, but I'd get to use it in my planned commission pricing picture... whenever I get to it.
Thanks for reading! Hopefully 1 and 2 will get just as much attention as 3~
Update Using random.org to generate a number from 1 to 9, it gave me 2! Congo-rats to Kadm~
