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.

New PS2 games to my collection
January 18, 2019

Got a good deal on Amazon and pawn shops this December/January. The Simpsons Hit 'N' Run and Road Rage are very entertaining titles featuring voices from the original cast and the insanity from the ongoing animated series, with Road Rage emulating SEGA's Crazy Taxi and Hit 'N' Run doing the same but with the likes of Grand Theft Auto in the most hilarious of ways. I will be getting The Game when I can but will stay away from their skating title as I heard it plays poorly.

High Score Girl
January 15, 2019

Found out from a Discord server about this Anime featuring retro gaming arcade games played by a kid whose life is all about gaming and constantly challenged by another gamer girl enthusiast. It aired in Japan in 2018 and was released on Netflix this year. Seeing parts of it on the likes of youtube I can say this is sheer lovable nostalgia. The sypnosis reads as follows:
