Sonic the Hedgehog
February 05, 2019

Not to be confused with the wacky, slapstick series that aired on weekday mornings, Sonic the Hedgehog had a more serious tone into the world of the blue blur with an attitude. It was loosely based on the videogame series and would also adapt characters from the Archie comics which circulated months before the TV series aired on ABC. The pilot episode mirrors said comic book series having characters like Sally Acorn drawn in the same style, then would change their look by the second episode that followed, as well as modifying the tone to reflect a much darker mood than what was first shown.

Adventures in Emulation
February 03, 2019

Been painfully succesful on trying out some emulation from GameCube being that seemingly, it is quite rare to find working emulators that can use some of the few ISOS I've been testing. Unlike the Sega Saturn emulation which left me seeing red at the fact that there is just no way to ever try such a thing seemingly, I have been able to play a few games with little to no slow down and even been able to record gameplay so I may even be able to create more content for my youtube channel in the future.

On the other hand I had been more successful on the likes of Nintendo DS and was able to experience games I always dreamed of playing but could never had a chance. My last handheld was the GBA SP therefore I had missed on quite a lot.

MegaMan the Animated Series
February 01, 2019

MegaMan was one of those videogame cartoon adaptations that I was happy to consider a guilty pleasure, surprising me when it aired on TV in a sunny Saturday morning and enjoying every minute of it from the kick ass intro to the end of the first episode shown. It had lots of personality and a lot of characters thrown for the blue bomber to do battle with as it were the case with his gaming counterpart.

Kirby Right Back At Ya!
January 27, 2019

I am not a big fan of Kirby. Its not to ssay that I dislike the cute, voracious pink ball of doom but it suffice to say I regard said character as I regard MegaMan, while I play some of tis games, I don't necesarily regard him as big as fans have done over the years. To me, Kirby has an orthodox way of gaming which leaves me utterly confused on how to play most games and simply go on to other platforms I am better at, nothing else.

Phantasy Star Portable
January 26, 2019

Been playing Phantasy Star Portable for PSP which is a retelling of Phantasy STar Universe for PS2 and a whole lot more intriguing, mainly in part because there is really no central character but your own creation, which works even better being you can feel a lot more interaction with NPCs here than with an established character you had from the beginning. Also, Ethan was irritating to begin with.

Being I have a soft spot for CASTS and Numan, I decided to make mine a CAST to enjoy the benefits of immunity to health status, even if it means I cannot cast Techniques but it does not bother by much. So far so good, I am enjoying this title very much.


(Not) Streets of Rage
January 24, 2019

During the 90s I would frequent a local video store to rent videogames and movies it featured. It also had an arcade room so it was the perfect hanging place after school for a good part of my life back then. Of all movies I checked out this one caught my attention being that I had played the excellent Streets of Rage 2 on Genesis thanks to a friend of mine introducing me to it by letting me borrow it for a while. I scratched my head as I looked over the VHS box reading how it had little to no resemblance to the games at all, and would not think the woman posing in the cover could had been Blaze herself either.

YouTube is silly.
January 23, 2019

The first time I ever received a notice about Copyright violation on my channel I was quite alarmed and upset. How could anyone sue my uploads when all I am doing is playing videogames and its just videogame footage not unlike plenty of channels that do the same? As I kept getting said nonsense I found out most were phony claims made by someone who had too much time on their hands to do anything productive overall.

Now I see that "Capcom" is trying to get a slice of the trolling pie. YouTube is certainly a place where I can't take seriously their idiotic "guidelines" at all.
