Forget twitter
Posted January 14, 2021 by CptRetroBlue

I had only two accounts since 2012 when I made the mistake on joining twitter. One for gaming of course, the other for anything else. While I never bothered to announce that other account I chose it to be that way, because I talked about other things I enjoyed non-gaming related. Well when 2020 happened things had changed drastically and while twitter has been known to be a cesspool of toxic substances to anyone using it, that year became the catalyst to how I decided was not worth ever using anymore thereafter, with 2021 being the beginning on how everything fall apart between me and that volatile social media outlet.

Some youtubbers I no longer follow
Posted January 06, 2021 by CptRetroBlue

At some point I would had subscribed to certain channels of what you refer to as "youtubbers" uploading videos reviewing games or any other subject they would make their topic about. Others I never bothered with although I had noticed on their level of popularity with certain demographics online.

But then you find out stuff about these individuals that just make you stay away from them and not bother with for the rest of your life. Such things are also pretty serious as you will read on about below and not just any other thing which you would roll your eyes at on me using such as reasons to not bother with them.

Cheap controllers while being cheap overall
Posted January 02, 2021 by CptRetroBlue

I am flat broke, I had already so many problems that I cannot afford to spend money on things like a gamepad t play games on my PC. However when you see something that strikes you as a bargain for the tine being till you can afford better, you cannot help but to try it out. The results can be quite disastrous overall.

This is one of such instances with said cheap products. The JDROAD brand is the cheapest controller you could ever bother to get both in price AND quality. Hell, my first pad was a Logitech brand which was leagues better than this and only costed me $19.99 plus tax at some walmart. I am not sure how I could ever thing something like this would be as good but like I said, economy issues.

An Eggman Carol
Posted December 26, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

And when I say *twist* I do mean it. Sonic Stadium unveils a link to a vcide upload on youtube, featuring Eggman as Scrooge and having Sonic and his pals try to make him see the meaning of the Holidays. The ending here is just perfect as soon as you think you know how the outcome will play out.


Power Stone, the Anime
Posted December 03, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

Finished watching the Anime adaptation of Power Stone not long ago. For those who know it, Power Stone was a Capcom game that got ported to the SEGA Dreamcast in the late 90s and seemingly acquired quite the popular vote by gamers to the point of becoming a cult classic nowadays. I had never played the game myself, probably might never get the chance to either, but at least saw its animation adaptation so there is that.

Tekken the movies
Posted November 14, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

By now I have seen all what the media could ever get out of Namco's flagship fighting series, Tekken and the whole consensus can be determined that all are hits and misses altogether. The live action movies leave a lot to be desired and the Anime does it as well, although it does try to at least have some sort of substance on its story instead of just being totally mindless like most fighting game animated ports.

Shining Force II longplay
Posted November 03, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

Been working on playing Shining Force II and uploading it in parts. My connection is crap however, making such uploads last for DAYS even, and I hope to finish the game and upload it all before the year ends. A playlist has also been created to add more videos of my playthrough.

Ys the Anime
Posted October 30, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

The Ys Anime is based on the famous series of roleplaying games featured on console gaming. Both games are presented in three DVDs with the first two telling the premise of the first game and part of the second, while the third disk finishes the two chapters altogether. While I had not played much of the games themselves, I was very familiar on how famous they are throughout. Watching the Anime really opened my appreciation for said games for sure.

Darkstalkers the Animated Series
Posted September 21, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

It was quite a curiosity as to HOW Darkstalkers had the attention of TV producers in western countries and went on making an American cartoon adaptation of the monster-filled capcom fighting game. There was already a Street Fighter American cartoon showing up in the USA channel, but given that was a far more famous gaming franchise, Darkstalkers just came out of the blue and was slapped into normal TV show spots in the 90s.

And that is pretty much how one would see it. If you could acquire the rights of a videogame to create a TV series why not two? Sure, Darkstalkers was not that known to the masses but maybe this could be the time that kids could find out about it right? Yeah well...

Beware servers like WHANGOUT (edited repost)
Posted September 10, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

The original post refused to be updated for one reason or another, therefore this is an edited repost with everything I meant to include as intended. Previous post was deleted therein.

Not long ago I deleted a post mentioning a Discord server called "whangout," which was created by justin whang for his fans and whatnot based on his youtube channel. I did so because after exchanging words with the owner on this site went nowhere , it seemed like it would be a lost cause if said post was left up, along with said bullies who attacked me here denouncing me in the most crude of ways with their fake, spam accounts solely created for that purpose on this website.

Philips Announces the CD-i Classic Mini Game Console
Posted September 07, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

I will admit, when I found this "article" online it had me really going. Would Phillips make the mistake on making such a thing after how infamous it became back then? Would history repeat itself just to watch a new generation of gamers lament the same experiences as anyone who went through the pain and suffering with these...games?

The SEGA 32X
Posted September 07, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

Yes I know. The 32X was the most panned console add-on SEGA had ever created and one that came out in the wrong time when The Saturn was around the corner. The system had a tiny library as well, and not many games that were out on it were that memorable or even worth playing to be truthful. Also, why would you want to spend money on such a thing when another stand alone system was on its way anyway?

And it’s not like the 32X would exactly live to its promise either. The sound and graphic qualities were a bit above the Genesis but not by much and overall it just felt like SEGA was trying to sucker anyone into spending more money than you could ever bother to do at that time.

The voice of Cyclops passed away
Posted September 03, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

Norm Spencer, the voice of Cyclops on both the X-Men animated series and Capcom fighting games passed away this month. He also provided voices for other Marvel animated shows like Silver Surfer. His voice samples in gaming included X-Men: Children of the Atom, X-Men vs. Street Fighter, Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, and Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

Cyclops is one of my very favorite X-Men characters if not the top favorite surpassung the likes of Wolverine who is ultra popular in pop culture, and who I always recognized as the face of said Marvel comics superhero property. Watched the FOX animated series as a kid all the way till it was over, and will always remember him by his voice samples shouting "Optic Blast!" as he balsted away at opponents. May he rest in peace.

That Phantasy Star game no one ever seems to talk about.
Posted August 23, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

Phantasy Star Adventure was released for the GameGear in Japan in 1992 and never was brought to the US, probably for the same reason as those telenet games were never available for US gamers just as well.

The game is a complete side story from the main ones found on the Master System and Genesis, featuring characters that are also not related to any within those games as well. Instead of shooting lasers and slicing monsters to grind and get exp., the game focus more on lots of talking and puzzle solving as you investigate what the ruckus is all about. Some of said interactions are totally bland as well.

Trials of Mana seems to surpass expectations
Posted August 21, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

If what this article rings true, then the only thing I can say is that I am very happy being that this game which was missing from our youth back then is one of the greatest among the Mana entries and was happily brought officially after all this time for generations old and new to experience. I will add that hopefully this will motivate Square-(Enix) to create a new game that could potentially introduce many other mythos within the series that had been never been present on any game that has been out so far. Or at least just one game where the same mechanics that made Secret and Trials such a joy to play, I could certainly live with that.

StarFox characters from the Cutting Room gameleak
Posted August 10, 2020 by CptRetroBlue

If you hadn'r heard it yet, some leaks were revealed not long ago based on various Nintendo games providing discarded concepts and characters therein. These include StarFox which seemingly was worked as a prototype to the sequel on the popular SNES shooter of the 90s, but never released until it was included in the SNES Mini recently.

Seemingly there were going to be a potential number of pilots you could choose from, or at least, just concepts before deciding who would make the cut in the end. Some are robots, others even human beings. Another interesting thing about these is that includes facial expressions on characters which would had broaden the experience while playing the game. At least that's how I would look at it.
