State of things continued
Posted April 09, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

Along with this damn pandemic going on which makes it harder for me to endure my current crisis, I am currently fighting anxiety attacks in thinking just what the hell I will do if things just don't pick up. The landlords here are being assholes, not caring about my current situation and just want their rent, the law firm I hired is having trouble making those other assholes to reinstate my benefits. The month is going on with no clear solution in sight.

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

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.
Posted March 27, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

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.

Once again I ask for help in any way you can.
Posted March 20, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

My nerves are shot at this point, besides the fact in being ever so irate at those uncaring snakes who just will not listen on about my inability to be able to live my life normally much less going out and work like I used to. Like I stated on my recent blog post I am not sure how such people can live with themselves, and I hope they never see themselves in such situation because I promise you, its not pretty. Its not right.

For now I am trying to scrunch up what I can get to pay next month's rent while I seek legal help or even find a job if they are WILLING to let a DISABLED man in without being able to do much. Who knows. I dont want to lose my home just yet that's for sure.

F*ck the world.
Posted March 20, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

Now, I know people moderating this site would have a problem with the title of this entry but to be honest, I am not caring much other than voicing my unhinged anger at how mch of a lousy system we have in America and the fact people just don't give a damn of the misfortuned to the point that they could care less if you end up in the street, battered, sick, and not even be able to walk long enough before any injuries you have as a result of being DISABLED might be the death of you.

No, America does not care that you are suffering, at least not TEXAS if anything.

My PS2 bit the dust and other crap
Posted March 10, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

Last week my latest PS2 console I had for almost a year simply didn't want to work properly. The TV set works, the cables are functional, the damn screen just doesn't want to show properly. I would not bother sending it to repair as I feel it would cost less acquiring another and quite frankly I am off to get me another PS3 in any case, so that PS2 business will have to wait for now.

Rurbo Grafx 16 Mini delayed due to Corona Virus scare
Posted March 06, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

I never evn heard about this being made and I would had the opportinuty to finally experience this console should it had been shipped. Now I guess I will have to wait a bit further it seems.

According to this Kotaku article:

"Regarding the TurboGrafx-16 mini console and its peripheral accessories, the manufacturing and shipping facilities in China have encountered an unavoidable suspension due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. As a result, the delivery of all TurboGrafx-16 mini products, which was originally scheduled for March 19th, 2020, will be delayed until further notice.

Megaman, a Retrospective
Posted March 03, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

Megaman began airing on Saturday mornings on my neck of the woods in 1994; a full year after Sonic the Hedgehog was introduced on TV for the first time and which would come up earlier than the super fighting robot's animated series. It was curious to see a cartoon featuring cute bipedal animals fighting robot dominance while a couple hours later you would see a robot fighting totalitarian robotic global control as well. Both cartoons based on famous gaming franchises that have tested the passing of time even to this day.

Posted February 28, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

Yuri Sakazaki made her debut in 1993's Art of Fighting as the damsel in distress, kidnapped by Mr. Big and rescued by her brother Ryo along with their best friend Robert Garcia. The end of the fighting game finishes in a cliffhanger as Ryo is about to finish off the mysterious Mr. Karate who was the last character between him and Yuri. Within the game's story it is revealed that Mr. Karate is indeed Takuma, their father who has been conned by a man named Geese Howard to work for him and had kidnapped Yuri in order to ensure his loyalty.

I am very happy about this upcoming documentary about one of videogames' giant in the gaming business throughout the decades. I personally will wait for it and seek it out when its about.

Sonic booms through opening weekend earning over 70 Million.
Posted February 18, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

Its quite amazing this movie is doing this well despite skepticism by some even after the redesign of the titular character. I am not complaining, this is great actually. I am happy one of the gaming mascots from my childhood game series is succeeding.

Deadline article of Sonic the Movie breaking through weekend opening.


Sonic the Movie reached 3 Million on opening day

IGN Reviews Sonic the Movie
Posted February 13, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

IGN sure made short work of reviewing this movie, which is still about to be shown here in the US in some states. Seems that the major thing they point out is Jim Carrey acting more of a cartoon character than the titluar CGI hedgehog, which I would agree by just seeing clips from trailers and such. Another thing they kept repeating over and over is that "IF YOU ARE A SONIC FAN" you would actually like it for what's shown there. In the end they just state the movie isn't half bad, giving it a 7 out of 10.

Sites like IMBd gives it a 7.1/10 while Rotten Tomatoes has it at 63% thus far.

That time Mother sold my NES system and anything on it for pocket change.
Posted February 12, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

Now I never got along with my parents. Actually, I never got along with my whole family then *and* now. Many things that I experienced and recent events on which makes me wish I was adopted. Saying this, it was a weird time back then when I decided to trade in my NES system and everything I got at a store called Funcoland now that I wanted to move on to the 16-bit era on which any other kid would mock you if you didn't "move forward."

Switch game impressions
Posted February 09, 2020 by JoeTheDestroyer

I've had time to pick up and play a lot of Switch games over the last month, some of which I've finished and either have reviewed or will review. What do I think so far?

A exhilarating top-down action game similar to Devil Daggers (kill as many enemies as possible, then try to break your record). You play a femme fatale armed with a katana and gun, mowing down legions of gangsters. It's a pretty minimalist game, but fast-paced and addictive enough to provide plenty of bloody entertainment.

Aldred Knight
A fairly plain, yet difficult, hack 'n slash platformer. It's a bit of a snoozefest because it plods along so slowly, though it can be decent in small bursts because of its stiff difficulty rating at certain points.

Seiken Densetsu 3

While I may never experience the remake on the Switch, I can at least continue my quest on emulation. This is truly a beautiful game.

Ratchet and Clank rumored to be among PS5's launch game titles
Posted February 04, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

Earlier on the day I read and watch thoughts by gaming sites and youtube channels about a rumored new Ratchet and Clank game as a launch title for the upcoming PS5. This could be a great opportunity for Sony should it also decide on other games that were highly popular back on its PS2 days like Sly Cooper and such. Read the article by Dual Shockers below:

New Ratchet & Clank Could Be a PS5 Launch Title

The Legend of Zelda animated series
Posted February 02, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

The Legend of Zelda animated series would debut as part of the Super Mario Bros. Super Show only on Fridays, replacing the timeslot with the animated Super Mario Bros. cartoon and would only have 13 episodes to its name. The show ends with no cliffhanger nor finishing up its premise whatsoever, probably for the fact that the main show was still airing and this would have been a good choice in repeating the series until it was taken off the air. Regardless of what actually happened, many would remember this cartoon mainly by its infamous quote shouted by Link in any other episode.

The time when Mario made his first appearance in American TV
Posted January 14, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

The very first time Mario ever graced the american tv airwaves was in the 80s on his Donkey Kong segment from Saturday Supercade which aired on CBS saturday mornings. This was aired along with other 80s arcade game adaptations like Kangaroo and Frogger, and would show up any other time along with Donkey Kong Jr. which took place in the same story associating with the huge woman-kidnapping barrel-tossing gorilla. Mario was voiced by Peter Cullen and would be accompanied by Pauline, both chasing Donkey Kong all accross the world in an attempt to capture him and send him back to the circus.

Posted January 10, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

I am not sure if this the same site from early 2000s where people used to create flash movies and all that stuff. Seems they had opened up to other types of submissions since then if that's the case. Decided to join up and post some of my own stuff just as well. If you are over yonder, make sure to stop by.
