|Finding odd stuff while gaming|
Not sure how to add direct links to youtube so here it is, a weird glitch when using the oil drum weapon on the first stage of Double Dragon for NES immediately after you defeat the onscreen enemies before it vanishes. The drum turned into a glitched baseball bat which I could even swing before it dissapeared.
|The biggest online gaming and media archive in the www|
I just found about this site, archive.org which is a massive site where retrogaming and old movies are archives within its banks. Games rank from PC DOS games to console versions including ZX Expectrum and even PlayStation 1. The archive also houses Arcade games using MAME software to run them, all for free to play and you don't need to register in order to enjoy them, except if you wish to review what you play and wish to contribute. Registration is also free by the way.
Enjoyed varios DOS titles such as Pac-Man, Jazz Jackrabbit (which is near impossible to handle being how awkward jumping is) and revisited the original Wolfeinstein 3D, which was a blast to go through even though I can't seem to get past Level 2.
|There's always Ys...|
I'm almost there!
But so many question marks remain. Aside from RFA, even the letters with games slotted in aren't a certainty.

|A chance meeting with Angry Joe at SGC con in Dallas years ago|
Here's a pic of when I found Angry Joe at the hotel where SGC was being held. I asked if I could take his photo but he then grabs my phone and sitands next to me and took a selfie of us both. What a guy.
|What it was supposed to bring gamers together is tearing them apart|
When I had first starting using Discord I had noticed that this is more like an iirc chat program with more features than any other chat available then. This is a plus, but it also has its negative setbacks. Its a chat program for one, and as all chats you may had experienced, some suffer from biased Staff and Ownership which turn on you on a dime in an unanimous vote to ban you from their server even when presenting evidence on anything that may had happened between you and toxic member of said server. Some even go as far as stating blocking someone for starting trouble with you is a valid excuse. And while you may shrug off being out of a server of many available, Discord actually goes the extra mile with said toxic members spreading ill word about you to other servers they had join

|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.
|J is not supposed to be a difficult letter|
So I have most of my remaining letters accounted for. I can't decide between my two Q options... it depends on whether or not I have time to go back and replay Quackshot, which I have always wanted to review. If not, I'll go with Quartet, which I've just put a bunch of time into, so the experience (lame as it is) is still fresh.
J, X, and Y remain. Jotun doesn't really interest me, I've had too many stops and starts with Ys Books I & II, and it turns out that I hate Xexyz.
If anyone has any ideas, shoot.

|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

|Booooo! Not cool!|
What is Lust for Darkness?
An erotic horror walking simulator where you rescue your wife from a deranged cult who engage in orgies.
Opinion 1: It doesn't wimp out or skimp on the sexual content. If you're here to answer "that question," the answer is yes.
Opinion 2: Its story is incredibly dull.
Opinion 3: It isn't scary in the least.
Opinion 4: You're better off playing a different horror walking simulator, because the erotic elements don't bolster the game beyond basic level horror adventure fare.
Review coming soon.
|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?
|Even if I like the game in question|
I once put over a dozen hours into Assassin's Creed II. I loved what I played, dug the missions especially and even enjoyed completing all of the side nonsense. I don't remember how far into the game I got, but a message popped up on my TV screen as the game autosaved. Something about corrupt data. I thought nothing of it because I figured there would be other autosaves. None of them took, though.
When I booted up the game later on, it didn't load my data. In fact, all of my data was gone. All of those hours were gone. Everything I worked for was gone.
I haven't restarted AC2 since that incident, and I probably never will.
|Lost Advanced Civilizations in RPGs|
As I approach the end of Secret of Mana, I once again revisit the Lost Continent's subterranean subway, a fraction of a city within the fallen continent's ruins. When you arrive you are greeted mostly by ghouls as you transverse row after row of seats within the moving platform until you reach its end and exit through the other side of it, confronted by a nasty Eggplant Man spawning lethal beings with high attack power and evasion (this can be avoided if you ignore the last couple ghouls which are easy to deal with however.) It is quite something to find such places in a high fantasy game like Secret of Mana which otherwise has little connection to the real world we live in save for some sections here and there, such as the temple at Mandala, where you get information from orbs called "v
|The First Levels of Sonic Games|
Have watched a great Sonic related video on youtube by user Super Bunnyhop, whose narration floats like a paper boat on calm waters, smoothly and quite satisfying to experience, very knowledgeable, quite an extnsive vocanulary, and you just know what he talks about in every segment of this video, you just must watch it to sexperience it. I cannot embed said video, so copy it and enjoy.
