Why everyone hates wii fit?

So I asked my cousin about the wii fit (because he owns a wii) is he’s planning to get one –“well yeah it looks fun”- he said and I said : “yeah why not? I don’t get why gamers are s angry at it”.

Ok so then I asked a friend what does he think about it and he said: “I hate it ;It makes us gamers look like lazy people and I don’t even consider it a REAL videogame”, so why does he hate it if is not even a videogame? Idk he’s just crazy, I don’t even need to prove anyone if am a lazy gamer or not and I don’t care who “plays” it or not, if its fun I will “play” it.

Some other people is angry at Nintendo because it promotes “casual gaming” ( well idk you guys but I think Nintendo is for kids ) but that’s an other thing, is just (in my opinion) that those angry gamers don’t want some noob saying they play videogames when they only play wii fit or wii sport and such games, “oh no they don’t deserve to be called gamers” well they’re obviously not is like if you say you’re hardcore gamer because you play DDR , so why to make such a big rack about it?.



So you guys just stfu about wii fit and go be lazy, who cares if you are!?.   read

When a gamers community goes wrong

So when I strated talking to people who likes videogames just like me on the hating machine AKA: “internet” , I was very amused and open minded about all the people like a innocent kid .

I started going to a chatroom on stickam named 4beatgamers , a chatroom dedicated to people who likes videogames , everything nice , people is cool they actually like games
They actually talk about it and still show some mental health and at that moment were proving me that not all gamers are socially retarded.

I stopped going for like a month because my computer wasn’t working, when I go back the chatroom host tells me that there was a huge drama involving this naked gamer girl (she found very pleasing to show her boobs on the chatroom and her … everything to perfect strangers to get attention) hating me out of nowhere.

Then all this girls and boys started joining the “gamers “ community , most of them called themselves gamers just because -they played DDR- (I know is stupid but they were welcomed) some of them loved discussing about the typical console war and regular stuff, but most of them were just gamers obsessed whit making a girl show them her goodies because they were super get used to the other girl showing everything .

I started to have think that any girl that put her face on the camera will be manipulated until she will accept the inevitable faith of being a camwhore, of curse not all the girls were like that the ones whit enough self respect and healthy social life and mind did not do it ( I did not do it if you are wondering) , but o be honest 80% of the girls did it and most of them more than 3 times.

Oh yeah right at that moment the guys were having a ball because of the naïve girls going to the chatroom then every day there was a new girl doing what a girl usually does on that chatroom , and I was a mod in the chatroom but I never kicked those girls , they were actually doing me a favor by doing the job that I am not interested in doing.

So then everything became so personal and obsessing in that chatroom and most of the people forgot about the main idea that was making a working community of gamers .

Thank you destructoid for not loosing track.   read

like....WTH?

So I have long time without a post in my blog.
Yeah yeah I suck, but still it was bad to give up on this D:
Coming up next: “Random comments of an apple"


So I don’t have MGS4 (yet) and all the cool kids don’t talk to me because of that.

I have developed a huge addiction to animal crossing: wild world.
am taking classes to get rid of my Mexican accent! , and also taking some grammar classes (i really need to improve my grammar).

am highly pleased by this robot face.

Oh btw I got bored of gta4 after playing it 2 weeks straight.

I rather play Mario kart for wii whit the wii wheel than the controller.

No more heroes makes me dizzy.

My hair is purple! (But is fading to pink)   read

A 2-year-old girl died after being beaten with a video game controller

"A 2-year-old girl died after being beaten with a video game controller by her mother's boyfriend and new charges are expected, police said Tuesday.

Darisabel Baez was pronounced dead late Monday at Hershey Medical Center, police Lt. Ron Camacho said.

The girl's mother, Neida E. Baez, 19, called for an ambulance Sunday saying her boyfriend, Harve L. Johnson, had brought the unconscious child to her, limp and wet from an attempt to revive her in a bathtub, a police affidavit said.

Johnson acknowledged beating the girl with a video game controller but did not say why, police said. Baez said Johnson had abused the girl in the past and said she heard the girl scream after Johnson beat her Sunday, according to the affidavit.

Johnson, 26, was charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and other counts.

Baez was charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Detective Dana Ward said Baez was charged because she did not intervene or try to get help for Darisabel."

i do really want to know witch videogame controller.   read

The Wings of love- a real life gamer stalker story.

Well after my mind was kind of distracted with wow and naruto stickam raiding, I started to remember all the videogames conventions that I been to and the people from those conventions.

I was the typical nerd that wanted to buy everything and trade videogames and when I saw the cosplay show I was like so into make some cosplay ,so for the next convention I cosplayed rinoa from ff8 that was my very first cosplay(I was 16) and a freak just decided to ruin my experience.

So like in every convention people wants to take pictures of your costume or just take a picture with you ,I have no idea why. I mean you get to appreciate the costume more when is the cosplayer by himself in the picture.

there was kind of like a line to take pictures with me and one of the guys taking a picture with me was non stop talking ,asking me if I played ff8 and telling me how much he liked the game that wasnt the annoying thing, the annoying thing is that he was grabbing my waist really thigh while talking and the stupid camera wasnt working!, people was making faces at him like omg give up!.

Finally the camera worked and I got rid of him , well thats what I though the truth is that he was following me all the convention and actually knew one of my friends from high school and that stupid bastard told him in witch classroom I was and all the information possible , so poof* instant stalker!

So one day when I was getting to high school he was outside and he waved his hand at me and well I just waved back because I had no idea who it was but am not good remembering people so I was kind of get used to that ,but he didnt stay there sitting like usually people does when they wave at me,he actually stand up and come talk to me I was like oh fuck I dont even remember this guy.

So when he told me who he was I was like how the fuck he knew I was on this high school and also how the fuck he knew at what time!?
So I just asked him really nicely how he knew and he said oh your friend Aaron told me yeah Aaron was so dead for me in that moment , the name of the stalker was Rodrigo and eh was 29 years old eh didnt told me, and eh actually didnt looked 29, witch it really scared me.

I dont know why the fuck I was such a friendly person when I was 16 and I didnt wanted to be mean to him and told him to stay away from me when I should.

He started going everyday to my high school and actually started talking to my friends , giving me strange gifts with poems every one of them related to ff8 like : a poster of squall ,a strange draw pretending to be an evangelion poster that I wanted ,he just decided to draw it because eh couldnt buy it , a very strange figure of squall and rinoa hugging made with color silicone and his little sister Barbie dolls hair
In a very heavy wood base with a poem from ff8 .

So I was trying to get rid of him talking him about a guy that I liked but he just didnt get it, he just keep talking how he was on jail one time (I didnt even wanted to ask him why), how he was planning to get a nose plastic surgery to look more like squall so we could be squall and rinoa.

And one time he saw me filling some papers for college and decided to copy my phone number from that papers and my e-mail address so I just didnt have him on high school every day and with my friends , now I had e- mails from him everyday and phone calls , but usually when he called I just asked someone else to say that I wasnt home .

He used to call from a public phone so it was easy to avoid , just one time my little cousin was in the house and he loved to answer the phone so he didnt lied about me not being home.
I had to take the call but I lied really fast that I was cooking some soup and hang up , but a half an hour later he called asking how was the soup.


And the most stupid thing that all my friends make me remember is that one time eh broke his leg jumping from a hill , why did eh jumped? well when I asked he answered: because I was thinking about you , and I though that if I think about you when I do something dangerous IM INVINSIBLE AND I GET THE WINGS OF LOVE , so yeah all my friends sang me that song that says : I believe I can fly , I believe I can touch the sky.

So there he was with a broken leg going to my high school looking for me in a rainy day and I was avoiding him , I asked a friend to pretend be my boyfriend in front of him so when eh talked to me I just made sure that my friend was next to me and eh still didnt care and offered me a gift , a video game and a VIP pass for a videogames convention, of course I didnt take it.

His reaction was calling to my house when I was in class and tell my family that he didnt found me in school not even on my class room , I am so lucky that my aunt drop me that day to high school (because it was mad rainy) so they didnt believed him , I was so angry because he decided to mess with my family so I send him and e-mail telling him how much he sucks and how I was tired of him stalking me, that I destroyed all his presents and that I didnt wanted to be mean at him but that if I see his face again I was not going to be nice at all.
He answered the e- mail saying that he was kind of sad and that no one will ever love me like him.

So he stopped stalking me and I started to be less friendly with people in conventions and stopped waving back at people that I dont remember.   read

Game experience may change during online playing

Today a friend told me that there were some guys on WOW level 70 killing themselves by drowning in the water because they hate WOW , the first thing on my mind was :well isnt that stupid? ,
And is not because I play WOW and like the game , is because of the fact that if you dont like the game you stop playing and paying for an account and stop wasting you money and time.

So yeah some people just dont like a game because they had a bad experience or is just not the kind of game they like, but do we even think about the notice that says : Game experience may change during online playing?

Not everyone has a good online gaming experience it all depends of the server and the people like every community ,and all depends of the attitude that people takes sometimes.

An example is when we play a shooter game like COD4 or Halo , sometimes players are aggressive that actually makes the game more interesting in my opinion; But sometimes theres just a guy that runs away from you every time you shoot at him and maybe for him is :wow am having a ball running away from this dude every time eh tries to kill me! :D lol suckeeerrrrr
While am like: what a fag ! why eh doesnt turn around and fights back?! >:O AGHHRRRR! then eh gets owned by my grenade.

This is just a very stupid example , but you guys get it dont you?

So I know Im not the only one that gets criticized by an other gamer when I say I play certain game and eh starts to tell me how that game sucks and why I should not play it and how you fail because of playing it ,well I dont really care but it is annoying when someone does that.

But we know that is useless to discuss with someone that has different game experience than me while playing an online game , still i like to try.   read

Parents blame the videogame, I blame the parents


Lately I been hearing about parents blaming all kind of technology that kids use , like internet ,mp3 player and videogames. And am getting tired of that.

Parents just decide to blame a videogame for his kid getting aggressive or less sensitive to human pain , they try to censor the games so everything they play be violence or sex free, hey is ok you want to protect your kids from that but thats not the way , and they still dare to demand the game company because of that or even make protests.

Well hello parents you bought the game for your kid and didnt pay attention to what eh was playing and now that you se what eh was playing you decided to blame someone else of your mistake, parents should sit and see what they kids are doing , stop complaining and do something about it because all education starts in the house and if youre not there to educate them the videogame or the tv will do it .

Thats why is said that Nintendo is for kids, parents should just get the Mario games for theyre kids and dont buy a xbox 360, a psp , or a play station 3. And the violence in the game is not the thing that makes a kid more aggressive parents should teach the difference between real life from a video game or tv show to theyre kids, because hey I grew up playing resident evil and silent hill and am not a person that gets a lot into fights or grab a gun and run around to the grand thief auto stile( but still I enjoy hitting a monster with a crowbar until it dies on a videogame or just kill someone with a sniper rifle with a head shoot).

Well I just wanted to take that off my mind ,I know this theme has been way to discuss, thank you for reading.   read

My Sims for Nintendo DS = Animal crossing?

Am a fan of all the Sims games specially for pc, so when I got my DS I was thinking about getting my Sims, or the Sims castaway , I end up getting my Sims because my cousin has the Sims castaway I honestly felt like the Sims cast away was a small preview of what the real Sims castaway for pc is, still the game is good and I had a lot of fun going around the island using the same bush that I harvest like a restroom.

When I started playing My Sims I was expecting the typical sim that gets depressed when they dont have all the moods in green or at least listen to the Sims language every time they had a conversation and try to find out what theyre saying by small images in conversation balloons , but this game is nothing like the typical Sims and you only listen to a few Sims words when you finish cheering up someone.


The game is basically being the host of a town , you HAVE to be friends with everyone (and the funny thing about playing Sims is that they can get to hate someone even wish to see that person dead) and your sim lacks of personality the only way you can give youre sim some personality is with clothes, you have a few mini games and cool stuff, but nothing like The Sims, Dont get me wrong I like the game but am disappointed when I just find out that the game is like plating animal crossing without the animals, from the moment you start playing you get this feeling that youre playing animal crossing , the faces are exactly the same as animal crossing.

I dont know how is My Sims for Nintendo Wii, but am sure that the Version for DS(like most of the versions for DS) is a small preview of the actual game.   read

Gamer girls? :yeah it happens get over it.

omg ty 4 the warm welcome , i hope you guys dont end up hating me.


so yeah i think the title says everything.
I was thinking about that because a friend was questioning me if someone bothers me wen i play wow, with things like :"youre a girl ,you cant play" , but actually no and i actually know a lot of girls that play videogames.
well I started to play videogames when i was like 6 years old, my brother didnt wanted to let me play because i was a girl and i was to little but i didnt care i just hide to play ;so i finally got all addicted to the games when i played super Mario 3 and Mario paint, then with the Sega sonic was like wow!! sonic!! haha, and the old Mario kart , Mario party, golden night oh well you guys know, then when i played final fantasy 7 and parasite eve i had to definitely keep playing , oh omg so many good games in the playstation like resident evil and silent hill, metal gear solid(omg megaman legends<3). also i remember my brother got the dreamcast and we had the sonic game it was awesome i played that game a lot and resident evil code veronica , crazy taxi and yeah well i just loved to play.
am kind of get used to people saying stuff like im a tomboy just because i like video games ,Or the people that says im too old to keep playing, haha but well is exactly the same 4 girls that 4 guys to play video games but i dont know why guys still are like "omg she's playing halo let's kill the girl plating halo" and then the girl kills someone in halo and everyone is like "lol you got killed by a girl" , like honestly that's so stupid.
or there's the typical girl that is always bitching about other girls playing video games because "she's more hardcore than her" (and she actually is an attention whore because you know some guys sometimes just love a gril because they like videogames) i actually had a horrible experience with two gamer girls idk why they hated me , but daaaamn girls can be really aggressive. i usually try to make friend with them but some bitches are just crazy so i mark my line with them ,sometimes i actually have to say that im a boy when playing so those kind of grils dont pay attention to me (a good example of a attention gamer girl whore are the ones that play halo , they make everything to get noticed , they even use the mic jus to show guys that there's a girl in the house and her master chief is PINK with a KISS logo and were not even playing red vs. blue and the only thing she says is how she likes walks on the beach) , or when is not online like when you know them in person is easier to avoid them "just-dont-say-you- play".
but dont get me wrong maybe is just me because i cant really make to much female friends XD and the few gamer girls that are my friends think exactly the same about attention whores " is useless to discuss or talk with them, those girls always think youre jealous because you want more attention".   read
