Welcome to my place within Honest Gamers. I like retrogaming and wrestling. Hope we can be friends in gaming. I am also an amateur photographer, game developer enthusiast, and cartoonist, and I am a fan of 80s music as well.
No more ROMS? No more Gaming? No more preservation?
You probably have already heard on sites like Emuparadise, and probably others as a few videos on youtube have been shown about Nintendo taking down licensed roms from their own line on such sites. While I have already seen that titles like Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros and any other pokemon game rom has already been removed prior to the news about it only now I am seeing that others have been taking noticed and how alarmed they feel about it, which we all should really. I for one have a concern on what if Nintendo actually begins to question any gaming video where there are playthroughs of said licensed titles? While this may be far fetched is pretty much something to consider since the company is going around pulling off games on rom sites and such.
Not bothering with it
I tried using that Twitch thing and I'm afraid to say its something I will not bother with. That site asks a bit too much of anything I am trying to do in terms of streaming and uploading videos and I am not willing to waste money just to get all what it asks of me. I'll stick with youtube for the time being.
Had it up to here with Twitter's BS
I find one of my accounts suspended and my gaming account locked waking up. This is not that strange this happens in the likes of Twitter. However it has happened so often that I am no longer upset about it, because I know JACK (the CEO of said thing) and Twitter themselves could care less on how they just kick you out for speaking your mind or just being there, while toxic accounts spread their cancerous hatred everywhere and seemingly, are doing just fine, such an account notorious for spewing out vile as Donald Trump's. JACK himself stated the reason why Trump's PERSONAL account is allowed to be as it is is because basically, its "good for business." No joke.
The lesser known of the Lee Bros.
Sonny Lee's sole appearance was on Double Dragon III The Rosetta Stone in Arcade, and was sorely for multiple player purposes, being that the cabinet would have up to 3 players to use simultaneously and Technos would have to think of a way to fill the third slot. Funny thing being that after this game Sonny pretty much vanished into thin air, and was not included in any other adaptation of said game nor mentioned ever again just as well. However by the time Double Dragon IV was released, he was an unlockable who had his own variation of the moves, and seemingly, was even more powerful than the Lee Bros. themselves, having a limited stock of fireballs which could kill most enemy characters in a single toss.
Yuzo Koshiro's greatness
Its hard for me to explain how great and genius the Streets Of Rage OST is. Every time I hear either the original or remix/remake tracks it just sends shivers down my spine and I feel transported back to the early 90s overall
I am not OK with this.
You know, to me, a remake means nothing more than that. A remaking of something. The graphics and music will change to a point but will be an enhancement of what it was prior, maybe some things will be added to keep the update to a classic game fresh. In the case of Secret of Mana remake for PS4, views on it were mixed because the updated graphics and music didn't seem to go in par with the old gameplay intact for the most part, but nonetheless it was a REMAKE of an SNES classic and not much else. Now we get the lastest on a report about the FF7 which has been in the works for a while now, having it as an "action game" whatever that means. Seems some are OK with it because to their own views, turn-based RPG is just "too old" for anyone who would try said remake, and I already stated S
Some glitches that actually help gameplay more than ruining it
Ah glitches. Every other game is filled with such. While some are quite frustrating to the point of resetting your game, others help you out and give you a break allowing you to last longer in said game. Take for example the third stage of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for Arcade, on which when you place your turtle in the exact position where the road meets the water tiles, your character will go for the most part ignored by every enemy you encounter, including the boss at the end. However you can still defeat such enemies without ever getting hit once. Some versions have a pizza halfway through so there is the temptation of nabbing it and risk breaking said glitch. What other glitches have favored your own gameplay?
