Ys the Anime
October 30, 2020

The Ys Anime is based on the famous series of roleplaying games featured on console gaming. Both games are presented in three DVDs with the first two telling the premise of the first game and part of the second, while the third disk finishes the two chapters altogether. While I had not played much of the games themselves, I was very familiar on how famous they are throughout. Watching the Anime really opened my appreciation for said games for sure.

Darkstalkers the Animated Series
September 21, 2020

It was quite a curiosity as to HOW Darkstalkers had the attention of TV producers in western countries and went on making an American cartoon adaptation of the monster-filled capcom fighting game. There was already a Street Fighter American cartoon showing up in the USA channel, but given that was a far more famous gaming franchise, Darkstalkers just came out of the blue and was slapped into normal TV show spots in the 90s.

And that is pretty much how one would see it. If you could acquire the rights of a videogame to create a TV series why not two? Sure, Darkstalkers was not that known to the masses but maybe this could be the time that kids could find out about it right? Yeah well...

Beware servers like WHANGOUT (edited repost)
September 10, 2020

The original post refused to be updated for one reason or another, therefore this is an edited repost with everything I meant to include as intended. Previous post was deleted therein.

Not long ago I deleted a post mentioning a Discord server called "whangout," which was created by justin whang for his fans and whatnot based on his youtube channel. I did so because after exchanging words with the owner on this site went nowhere , it seemed like it would be a lost cause if said post was left up, along with said bullies who attacked me here denouncing me in the most crude of ways with their fake, spam accounts solely created for that purpose on this website.

Philips Announces the CD-i Classic Mini Game Console
September 07, 2020

I will admit, when I found this "article" online it had me really going. Would Phillips make the mistake on making such a thing after how infamous it became back then? Would history repeat itself just to watch a new generation of gamers lament the same experiences as anyone who went through the pain and suffering with these...games?

The SEGA 32X
September 07, 2020

Yes I know. The 32X was the most panned console add-on SEGA had ever created and one that came out in the wrong time when The Saturn was around the corner. The system had a tiny library as well, and not many games that were out on it were that memorable or even worth playing to be truthful. Also, why would you want to spend money on such a thing when another stand alone system was on its way anyway?

And it’s not like the 32X would exactly live to its promise either. The sound and graphic qualities were a bit above the Genesis but not by much and overall it just felt like SEGA was trying to sucker anyone into spending more money than you could ever bother to do at that time.

The voice of Cyclops passed away
September 03, 2020

Norm Spencer, the voice of Cyclops on both the X-Men animated series and Capcom fighting games passed away this month. He also provided voices for other Marvel animated shows like Silver Surfer. His voice samples in gaming included X-Men: Children of the Atom, X-Men vs. Street Fighter, Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, and Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

Cyclops is one of my very favorite X-Men characters if not the top favorite surpassung the likes of Wolverine who is ultra popular in pop culture, and who I always recognized as the face of said Marvel comics superhero property. Watched the FOX animated series as a kid all the way till it was over, and will always remember him by his voice samples shouting "Optic Blast!" as he balsted away at opponents. May he rest in peace.
