|I'm selling off most of my physical library of PS4 games, many of them unopened, and that starts... NOW!|
Recently, I moved from one apartment to another and the process made me realize I have way too much... stuff. A lot of that stuff, admittedly, is games. And I do like games. I like owning a lot of them physically, even. But I've realized I need to be more selective about what I buy and keep, and I've accepted that a lot of the great games in my collection would give greater joy to other collectors while I shuffle priorities. So I purchased a lot of digital versions of games I own, and I went a little nuts and now I need to sell some stuff in a hurry.
|And it is Rivet|
A new trailer for the upcoming Ratchet and CLank game finally reveals who the mysterious female Lombax alien is called. Rivet is her name and she seems already eager to join the fight.
|Why does Nintendo hate her so much?|
Krystal and the failure on female character development
You already know that Krystal was originally a RARE character before Nintendo got their greasy hands on her. Besides that, and thanks to the original prototype Dinosaur Planet game you also have learned that her role in said game was a whole lot more than just being captured and sitting around until the big man of the game Fox McCloud showed up and rescued her.
|Giving motivation with a simple artpiece|
Never stop creating.
|G.U.N enters the scene. Maybe.|
Not long ago, the twitter account of Sonic Stadium posted about the Sonic movie sequel's movie sets, speculating that G.U.N, a group of antagonists featured in Sonic videogames back from Sonic Adventure 2, might just appear on said movie.
|You now have more time to snag PS3 and Vita games you may have missed, though PSP games are still hurtling toward their imminent demise.|
Today Sony made a proclamation and it was actually good news for a change. In a special announcement, Jim Ryan revealed the company has (mostly) reversed course on its recent decision to stop selling games from various older platforms on the PlayStation Store.
Currently, PlayStation 3, PSP and Vita games were set to disappear from the store on July 2nd (in the case of the first two) and August 27th (in the Vita's case). This has unexpectedly changed.

FINAL FANTASY SPIRITS WITHIN
I saw Final Fantasy the Spirits Within at the theater when it was shown over this city on its opening weekend. Needless to say I tried keeping myself awake during the entire thing just because I wanted to see how it would end. At the end of the entire ridiculous thing one guy shouted how much it sucked and I nodded to that, walking out feeling cheated out of the money wasted in watching it there than actually just waiting to do so a lot cheaper by renting it on DVD format.
|Here's a look at what I have and what I consider the standout software on a number of platforms affected...|
I've already blogged about why I believe it is a shame the PlayStation 3, Vita and PSP software libraries will no longer be available for purchase after July 2nd (for PS3 and PSP) and August 27th (for Vita). I won't repeat all of that here. Instead, I thought it might be useful to outline some of the games you can still buy today through the ludicrously awkward PlayStation Store on your PS3 console that you won't be able to purchase after the above dates.
|Bots make any upload on that site worth a laugh|
I had many so call "copyright claims" sent to me whenever I bothered uploading to youtube, but this would be the first time that it would give me such a hearty laugh I just had to share it. According to BOTS on that site, music composed and programmed into the first Final Fantasy game on the NES is owned by some company called Warner Chappell.
Really? I had thought it was composed by a certain music creator named Nobuo Uematsu all those years ago. Apparently someone owns someone else quite the monetary compensation this being the case.
|Escapism becomes more difficult than it needs to be when we don't fight to keep the doors accessible.|
On the NES, there is a game called Day Dreamin' Davey. It's about a young school lad who escapes into the worlds of his dreams and has adventures. I've played it before, and even recently added it to my collection. Someday, I'll probably play it a lot more. But my point in mentioning the game isn't to remind you that it exists. Rather, it's to say that if you changed the protagonist's name to Jason, it might well be a game about me.

Sonic cancelled movie and Genesis prototype ROM
While some may had heard of it, I had just discovered that there was a planned american Sonic movie back in the 90s, after following the cartoon series shown during that time period. As far as I had seen on a video, it states that it would have Sonic jump into the real world chasing Dr. Robotnik and being helped by some kid who was responsible for both characters in jumping out of a game he was playing. A weird note here is that Chaos Emeralds would be in the real world in contrast to said game, seemingly without much explanation.
|Its gotten so tiresome, demeaning, and unprofessional|
On a latest game related video upload to a channel I subscribe to, the person hosting it blatantly and casually refers to a animal humanoid character as a "furry," continuing the never ending cliche of somehow thinking this "joke" is still relevant nowadays and just making me want to punch someone in the face because I am so damn tired anyone bothers doing this sort of thing.
|The next Anime installment which I consider the best|
Released in 2001, it lasted two seasons, all covering an entirely original story with no relation to any game established up to that point. The Anime here does have various call backs to what the game series are about, and the
artsyle is pretty colorful and, well, fantasy like.
|The 4 Red Mage March|
Had started a playthrough of the original Final Fantasy using an all Red Mage party, first thinking on using White Mages as to challenge what others had done before, but after some thought I had decided to use the aforementioned class, being that they cover most of other classes in terms of magic and physical combat, but also because they look so darn cool as well.
|Want to experience what the game was going to be before Nintendo butted in? Here's your chance|
I posted my last blog entry about gameplay shown comparing the mostly adorable Dinosaur Planet with the meh-looking Starfox Adventures, noting that Fox being in said prototype was most likely part of the reconstruction into the latter game.
Well guess I was right on that observation. On a article at SyFy's website it tells the story on how a group called Forest of Illusion got a copy of a mostly finished ROM that was intended for the Nintendo 64 before scrapped and moved to Gamecube as part of the Starfox franchise. The video I posted here on my last update shows said ROM which now anyone can seemingly try and play. Said ROM was leaked this month too shockingly enough, so any Rare fan is not too late to experience it.
|Its a Rare-rity|
Have just watched a youtube video upload of Rare's scrapped game and the end result of said game with Starfox Adventures playing side by side. I have never seen the original game in motion before and can state it looked quite good and probably would had gotten my interest a whole lot more than what it ended up becoming.
|Or Earthbound 2 if you want to get technical|
Finally getting a try on playing Mother 3 on GBA. Found an emulated fan translated ROM at a site dedicated to the Earthbound series and so far its pretty intriguing albeit difficult. I am finding out using strategies in some spots is pretty much key in order to go forward, unlike its predecessor on which you can simply attack and use PSI attacks till enemies are done for.
The fight mechanic is tweaked a bit here, allowing you to make more than one hit when you got the know how. Just like its previous entries the game uses contemporary settings and tropes akin to our contemporary world instead of a medieval fantasy world, although monetary tropes here have been replaced by trading goods in order to get items to replenish HP/status/PSI and equipment.
|A New Sonic series coming up|
So the title to the new Sonic series has been announced, but don't get your hopes up on revealing anything that contribute to what will be about other than being on 3D.

|After so many years on using it I am sick of it.|
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.
|Not only on YouTube, but anywhere where they may be around as well|
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.
