The time when an NES rental store opened in my hood
May 24, 2020

Once upon a time in the early 90s a new privately owned business arrived into my old neighborhood in Mexico. A man leased the diminutive one-bedroom office with a second floor that was placed exactly at a corner of a street. This was a very odd building to say the least, but that did not deter me from the fact that the new little shop was videogame related. The man himself would rent out NES cartridges and NES systems, along with allowing customers to play inside said store for a flat fee for every other time allotted. You could play any NES game he had for 10 minutes which was measured by a huge timer he had besides the CRT monitor and the NES, on which the game would just turn off automatically. If you wanted to keep playing you would pay him for another 10 minutes before the timer

Mana Beast vanquished
May 19, 2020

Before that update from that snes emulator took place on which it pretty much left any single game save file and snapshot useless, I was on the brink of finishing a couple RPGs from the SNES library, one of them being the classic Secret of Mana, adored by many even above installments before and after it.

I was pretty much lucky in the fact that after having to start a whole new game I then persevered till I was able to defeat it a few minutes before posting this blog.

Views on Streets of Rage 4
May 07, 2020

This is not a review, just an observation as I am yet to buy this game to fully give it a proper review on it.

I saw a long playthrough of SOR4 a few days ago and I pretty much nodded in every other thing it featured. The gameplay seems solid with some additions into it such as being able to juggle opponents once they're knocked down for a few extra hits and the ability to perform a super move which can deal massive damage to the likes of bosses at the end of stages. Although some moves were scrapped off such as the ability to dash and roll between planes within stages, the gameplay remains classic at its core, pretty much as seen in SOR2 which was the greatest in the series and seemingly this is where it was heavily inspired from disregarding anything that happened in part 3.

Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge
April 29, 2020

Despite its title, Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge partially focus on the demonic specter of vengeance seeking out Sub-Zero than the overall premise of the animated film, which is a retelling of the first tournament that started it all. The movie opens with a very gory, very bloody intro depicting the titular character's demise at the cold hands of Sub-Zero who exterminates his entire clan and family. Scorpion then makes a pact with the current ruler of the Netherworld, Quan Chi to fight for him at the upcoming Mortal Kombat tournament in exchange to get payback for what he endured in his previous life and a chance to be reunited with his fallen family.

More updates on my current adventures
April 25, 2020

This awful month is ending and with it awful things have transpired, but at the same time good things have done as well. As I type this I am eagerly waiting about that job which a recruiter contacted me about after applying for it online and if things go right, I will have said job which fits into my current disabled condition and would not have to worry about surviving for the rest of the year. In all honesty, those discriminating people who shut down my benefits can go take a hike at this point. I am still fighting to get them back in case I do not get that job but at least I can now breathe a bit easier and sleep better knowing there is more hope during such horrific times. I am hoping this pandemic nonsense can come to a close with positive results. It is quite the nightmare.

A positive update on this unforgiving life of mine.
March 31, 2020

A silver lining is showing to say the least. The Law Firm I hired and is willing to work on my case is doing so still, giving it to those uncaring assholes. Its been days since I could not sleep well and not even think straight about this nonsense and I can state at least I will be able to relax a bit knowing there is someone fighting for my rights.

I still am yet to meet rent, so hopefully that Texas law stating landlords must be forgiving through April 2020 is still in effect until I get anything gathered and pay those OTHER assholes as well. Like I said, not sure how people can be so uncaring. It makes me ill.

Still, I am fighting on. I can tell all who read this that things are picking up a little bit. I will take all that I can.

Update on my declining life status.
March 27, 2020

Today the assholes at Social Security cemented their decision on not reinstating my benefits by sending another stupid letter wanting "their" money back which were sending while this crap was going on before they shut me down about said appeal. 7 thousands damn dollars. As if I would give them a damn cent back at all. Screw them.

Of course any family I have are too busy not caring, this before that corona virus nonsense started, but now are using as an "excuse" not to even visit and try to support me on this dire time of need. Fine. Whatever. Screw them as well.
