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!?.








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 naĂŻve 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.

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)








"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.








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 wasn’t the annoying thing, the annoying thing is that he was grabbing my waist really thigh while talking and the stupid camera wasn’t working!, people was making faces at him like “omg give up!”.

Finally the camera worked and I got rid of him , well that’s 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 didn’t 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 don’t 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 didn’t told me, and eh actually didn’t looked 29, witch it really scared me.

I don’t know why the fuck I was such a friendly person when I was 16 and I didn’t 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 couldn’t buy it , a very strange figure of squall and rinoa hugging made with color silicone and his little sister Barbie doll’s 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 didn’t get it, he just keep talking how he was on jail one time (I didn’t 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 didn’t 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 wasn’t 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 didn’t 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 didn’t care and offered me a gift , a video game and a VIP pass for a videogames convention, of course I didn’t take it.

His reaction was calling to my house when I was in class and tell my family that he didn’t 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 didn’t 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 didn’t 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 don’t remember.








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 isn’t that stupid?” ,
And is not because I play WOW and like the game , is because of the fact that if you don’t like the game you stop playing and paying for an account and stop wasting you money and time.

So yeah some people just don’t 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 there’s 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 doesn’t 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 don’t you?

So I know I’m 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 don’t 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.
