The time when Mario made his first appearance in American TV
January 14, 2020

The very first time Mario ever graced the american tv airwaves was in the 80s on his Donkey Kong segment from Saturday Supercade which aired on CBS saturday mornings. This was aired along with other 80s arcade game adaptations like Kangaroo and Frogger, and would show up any other time along with Donkey Kong Jr. which took place in the same story associating with the huge woman-kidnapping barrel-tossing gorilla. Mario was voiced by Peter Cullen and would be accompanied by Pauline, both chasing Donkey Kong all accross the world in an attempt to capture him and send him back to the circus.

Now at Newsgrounds
January 10, 2020

I am not sure if this the same site from early 2000s where people used to create flash movies and all that stuff. Seems they had opened up to other types of submissions since then if that's the case. Decided to join up and post some of my own stuff just as well. If you are over yonder, make sure to stop by.

Another great sale at the thrift shop
January 08, 2020

Hit the thrift once more and found a lot of good stuff and under 20 dollars got this nice bundle. Soul Calibur, Grandia II, Shenmue, and a sample game disc Generator Vol. 2.

Got me PS2 games like Tekken 5, Neo Geo Colliseum, Soul Calibur 2 (with bonus sample disc,) Spawn Armageddon, Gundam Encounters in Space, Onimusha 3.

Along with that I also got Dragonball Z Legends for PlayStation, a Japamese import and an SNES controller.

While problems in my life are quite going worse than they had should, even when this is the first month of the year, at least I had a break and enjoyed game shopping with these finds. Can't complain too much.

Sonic the Comic
January 02, 2020

While IDW currently holds the rights to Sonic (which I still argue was a GOOD move overall,) I still can't get over the fact of how much Archie messed up the entire lore behind the blue blur and his surroundings, and how I always prayed that this comic either ended or be moved somewhere else before Archie continued F*cking it up even more than it was over a whole decade.

Are you a movie fan? I am sure you are.

I also review movies as well, even though I may just end up making you upset about my amateur ramblings. If you also have an account then let me know and I will sure follow you back.

Merry Christmas 2019
December 25, 2019

Merry Christmas to all gamers and to you a Happy new upcoming year, I gave myself my own present by hunting down some PS2 games on thrirft stores, pawn shops, and even Amazon sine I could find forgotten games I had seen at some point (Ninja Assault.)

This was quite a haul, and to have games like Space Channel 5 gives me this nostalgic feeling from when I played it on the Dreamcast all those years ago. I also got some games whose save files I still got on my system, such as Rampage Total Destruction, and others I had yet to try like Resident Evil 4.

All in all it has been an OK last month of this otherwise not so good year, and I think I can be fine with closing it in a high note than a bad one. Hope all of you had a great Holiday today and keep on gaming.
