President of Nintendo Apologizes for Defective Drifting Joy-Cons- But is that enough?

The president of Nintendo, Shuntaro Furukawa, apologized for the Joy-Con drift issue in a recent meeting with investors. This is what he had to say during a Q&A session, translated from Japanese by Kotaku (https://kotaku.com/nintendo-president-apologizes-for-joy-con-trouble-1844216184) from this source: https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2020/qa2006.pdf
"Regarding the Joy-Con, we apologize for any trouble caused to our customers... We are continuing to aim to improve our products, but as the Joy-Con is the subject of a class-action lawsuit in the United States and this is still a pending issue, we would like to refrain from responding about any specific actions."
So basically, this starts out with basically what Nintendo would reply with when asked for comment about the issue by various publications last July when a major sudden public outrage occurred over the topic, which has been prevalent since near the launch of the Switch back in March of 2017. The fact it took this l…

My Summer 2020 Blogging Plan (or lack thereof)

Hello, all. This is obviously a strange summer with quarantine and whatnot. I have no travel guaranteed, nor any in-person summer camp. I have lots of time on my hands, and an innate urge to be productive. So, yes, this is literally a godsend and practically the perfect summer for a blogging renaissance that I've been waiting for all these years. Go figure.
So, any grand plan? Schedule? Detailed agenda? Nope. I will be able to do daily posts all throughout this month, but they will be sort of a Super Mario question mark mystery box. No standard length, nor a topic. I will simply write whatever I feel like writing on a current day. A current event in gaming or another thing that catches my attention, a review of something, or maybe another collab story (Waluigi Tales part 3, anyone?) are all possible things I could do.
I could attempt to get back into posting my art here. Those would be cartoon drawings (anyone remember when I did Angry Birds crossover fanart four years ago? That was…

YOUTUBE VIDEO EDITED MEME: Trumpet Boy/Trompet Oğlan- Domates Biber Patlıcan (Barış Manço)

via IFTTT

Hello guys. This is my first time editing a meme like this, and my first time using Photoshop Elements. I finished making it during spring break, but didn't upload it until now. The song is “Domates Biber Patlıcan” by the Turkish rock legend Barış Manço. I do not own the song. Enjoy :)

The PS4's Share Play Feature is a Quarantine MUST! (It's great... mostly)

I have many close friends that I haven't been able to visit for a couch gaming session for a while. One of which is a pal who lives an almost two-hour-drive away from me and owns a PlayStation 4. Under normal circumstances, I would have maybe visited him once a month or once every two months. We could hang out, play soccer in his backyard, and then eventually get worn out and then go back inside. We would get to play some local multiplayer Gang Beasts (a GIF of which is shown below) or Rocket League, or take turns with the controller playing a single-player game like Marvel's Spider-Man

Our current time, obviously, is not normal, unfortunately. So, how would I celebrate his upcoming birthday with him from a distance? I could play a game online with him... or I could take it a step further with Share Play. Share Play, which was talked-about all the way back since the PS4's initial launch, has existed for a while. But I haven't gotten to try it out until yesterday due t…

Blogger Random Question Challenge #2: Right-Hand Man

Hello, everyone. This is Arca, and this is my second-ever post for a Blogger "random question" challenge. To know what that is, and where I'm getting the questions from, you can read my previous post: http://www.arcabaran.com/2020/06/blogger-random-question-challenge-1.html
Ah, I see. I got a good question that I actually picked to do on my first try clicking the "Save Profile" button. Here it is:
"Try writing your name with your other hand. Where was that person raised?"
I am a lefty, and proud of it. Lots of awesome, creative, and intelligent people (real and fictional) have been left-handed, from The Legend of Zelda'sLink to Da Vinci to Bill Gates to Aristotle to Caesar to Einstein to Marie Curie to Jim Carrey and multiple U.S. Presidents... the list goes on and on. I even visited the world-famous Lefty Store, "Lefty's", on my visit to San Francisco, California five years ago. But, if I were to be born right-handed, like every single…

Blogger Random Question Challenge #1: Fish + Bicycles = Armageddon

Hi, guys. This is Arca. I am very bored and want to make a summer daily post, yet don't want to write something requiring Internet research beforehand. Thankfully, Blogger already has a solution in its  profile customization menu, at the very bottom. It's called a random question, which is simply a fun writing prompt meant for you to answer shortly and display at the bottom of your profile page. It lets you generate new prompts just by clicking a button.I am going to try to find where I can edit my user profile in this brand new UI I'm not yet used to, and then keep generating random questions until I choose one I am satisfied with.
Oh. This one's pretty good. Here it is:
Well, maybe they don't need them, but don't you think that some fish might like a bicycle?
Well, yes, actually. Humans are able to walk, yes? They can also drive cars. And ride bicycles. And do many other things that they are physically capable of doing. What aren't they physically capable of…
