About My Blog

Just your ordinary Gamer with a Blog. I post my own opinions about anything in the Gaming Industry. Sometimes I do reviews and give out recommendations. Oh, and I also do talk about other Consoles & Games outside Nintendo.

About Me

I enjoy long walks in Electronic Stores. I love Nintendo but still am a Universal Gamer. I am very much in love with my girl friend Erin (<3) and have been known to talk about her in some of my post. I'm random and really nice if you don't push me to much.

Other Blogs

I have one other blog I've started called Simply Erin 2.0. It's a comic strip I made for my girl friend to make her smile. I make them using the Augmented Reality function on my Nintendo 3DS to use the Mii's as characters. For more info about Simply Erin 2.0 check out the page here

"I work for Reuters. I’m a journalist in the media business.

Back in 2008, I sat in a conference and reviewed some proposals to integrate news sources focused on electronic gaming into our RSS service as niche content providers.

We considered IGN, Gamespot, and a few other syndicated online info feeds.

Now, in order to white label a source as affiliated with Reuters, you need to run through a checklist of ~100 items that are necessary for journalistic integrity. The source and its organization has to score at least a 60 out of 100 for it to be considered fair and unbiased.

These tests are carried out by senior journalists, editors, and investigators.

NONE of the gaming publications scored higher than a 15. For reference, the National Enquirer scored a 38 and the MSNBC blogosphere scored 44.

Some failures included:
- Economic ties with publishers
- Acceptance of favors
- 0% of staff held journalism degree
- Very small percentage worked in other major publications
- No real editing process
- No accountability

tl;dr: Gaming “journalism” is a joke and the laughingstock of reporting media. Continue to read these publications if you want, but assume that everything you read is biased or an outright lie.”

Gaming news is officially worse than supermarket tabloids folks. Let that sink in for a while. These people are are several steps below “IS BRAD PITT CHEATING ON ANGELINA???” (via bonglorio)

The qualifications they looked for wouldn’t have worked for gaming news. No one is 100% unbiased when it comes to games. Also when reviewing a game, most of what one would say isn’t all fact. Sure if a game is glitchy as hell then that’s fact. But if someone says they Love CoD for so and so reason, someone else can say those reasons suck cause Battlefield has this or that. I bet if they did the same for Movie based news (not talking about actors personal live but just movies) would be the same.

Besides I can barely spell and have no journalism experience, yet doesn’t stop me and thousand of others from doing gaming news blogs… speaking of I should be updating more shouldn’t i..

micdotcom:

She pointed out the sexism in video games, so men threatened her until she fled her home

On Monday, Anita Sarkeesian posted a segment titled “Women as Background Decoration.” It examined how gratuitous sexual abuse and violence permeates contemporary video games. By the next day, she had received so many violent threats that she had to flee her home. And these weren’t idle Internet threats — some contained accurate identifying information about Sarkeesian’s home and family, enough for law enforcement to get involved.

But she’s not wrong | Follow @micdotcom

This is just stupid…Honestly, people really your threatening someone for the stupidest thing.Get your heads out your ass, if you don’t like what someone says then ignore it. Whats the point of threats. 

Like me for instance I think she’s wrong. Mainly cause it’s easy to find the points in game you can consider sexist or morally wrong easily. Like really, what do you expect in a game like GTAV? There is so much stuff in there that’s morally wrong, everyone knows this and other games are painting a picture. Video games are like movies, they try to show you what kind of character your dealing with. It’s not like it’s forcing your character to be that way. Besides, what do you expect to find in a strip club in a game. Lastly, games like that are mostly M rate, M of course for Mature. Of course kids get a hold of these games but it’s not the game makers fault. The Game is made for mature people who understand it’s a… wait for it… GAME. 

Anyway, for all you assholes who threatened this girl, go fuck yourself. This is how you respond to something you don’t agree with. You debate it or ignore it. Pick one and that’s it.

For all those Complaining about the Exclusive games for the New 3DS

Essentially what you’re saying is “Hey Nintendo, Awesome job on expanding the life of the 3DS by improving the features, hardware & software, but don’t you dare take advantage of all that!” 

Like seriously, not only will the new 3DS upscale certain 3DS games that are programmed to be, but it will also be able to have games that take full advantage of all it’s upgrades. Thats like if you get pissed off at Microsoft for having programs Window 7 can run but not Windows XP. Besides it’s not like the new 3DS gonna cost more then what a new 3DS or XL cost now. Granted I know people don’t have the money to spend on a new handheld, I don’t, but it won’t come out till next year in NA. Gives me plenty of time to save and if push comes to shove just trade in or sell my old one.

I honestly wasn’t sure if I should post this or not. It’s me playing Mega Man, recorded it last week, I edited it, but I didn’t really like it. Decided to post it anyway to maybe get some feedback.

STOP DEFENDING THE FUCKING COPS

I’m not taking sides or commenting on current event issues here, but in response to this. Some people have friends & family members who are Police officers. They aren’t cloned in a lab you know. So of course when people generalize that all Cops are gonna be racist and shoot you they will defend them. With every group of people there are good and bad so think before you make broad statements.

Super Smash Bros. Wii U bundle preorders open ⊟

The bundle comes with a Wii U copy of the game, a special edition GameCube controller, and a four-port GameCube controller adapter (Wii U console not included). It’s $99.99 for the package, which is $10 cheaper than what you’d pay for everything separately.

And here’s where you can buy everything separately:

You also have the option of finding someone to mod your 2DS/3DS with a GameCube controller adapter. Thanks to @Wario64 for the tip!

Is it weird that I haven’t even done 1,000 post yet? It’s been like 5 years now.

So I’m going to start my Old School Gaming video thing next week. I’ve ordered a tripod for my phone to record while I play. Like I said in my last post about this, going to start off with Mega man for the NES. I won’t be playing it on the NES though since I don’t have the original game, but I do have the Virtual Console game on my 3DS. I’ll probably just do the one video and if I get feed back on it or people would like to see another episode I’ll continue it. We’ll just have to see what happens when it’s done!

Old School Games

So I grew up with an NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, & and so on. As the new Generations of games came out I followed suit, but I feel bad that I never sunk my teeth into any of those games or tried to beat em.

With that being said I’m planning on playing some of these games, starting with NES, and record my reactions and thoughts on em. Kinda like a let’s play, but for the most part it’ll be my first time trying.

So yeah I think my first game will be Megaman for the NES, if anyone has suggestions on any NES, SNES, or Sega Genesis games I should try let me know!

people may not agree with me on this but it’s fine. I know plenty of women who don’t call them selves feminist solely because it’s just become a another way to hate a group of people. It’s not fair to say that because a women isn’t a feminist that they should abandon what it’s done. That would be like saying if you aren’t a Republican you should abandon what Abraham Lincoln stood for. Yet the republican party of his time would be what the democrats are today. I know it’s a random example, but I’m trying to say is a groups views and goal change over the years. Sometimes to the point where they don’t realized their original intentions have been twisted into something else. I support women in every way as equals. I’m not saying all feminist are the same, but for the most part the views have changed. Equality among everyone should be the goal, I understand men haven’t gone through the BS women have to, but doesn’t mean one group should look down on another especially since innocent people are being yelled at or even feel guilty for stuff they haven’t done. And above all why should you force someone to support or label themselves something if they don’t want to. I’ve said this before, I consider my self a peopleist (if thats even a thing) I support men & women of all races, beliefs or w/e as long is doesn’t cause harm to anyone else. 

Last thing I wanna say is reason I needed to say this is mainly cause people close to me have had to deal with this. Most of the time people are real aggressive about this to the point where it’s almost like bullying. If you want to be a feminist that’s fine, just don’t bully or guilt other people to label themselves something if they don’t want to. This is my opinion nothing more.

old vs. new

Umm, the 2DS and 3DS are the same thing.. Shouldn’t it be the 3DS on the left and DS, DS lite or DSi on the right?

You know it’s funny how everyone knows Nintendo just blew everyone away this E3 and yet I bet $100 that everyone will say they sucked.
