23rd year

Today, is just another day. Even though its my birthday. But today, I'm going to visit a friend in the hospital. A fellow gamer, and otaku; heh they'd give me the rolling eyes and say "yeah, yeah". I think that sums it up for now.

 
 
 
 

Turning around

Look through your gaming library; name a title you haven't played in a long while. Now put that game in your system, watch the opening intro screen. What is the expression on your face? Is your hand over the start button yet? Let it go, si...

 
 
 
 

DMC4 demo

Late January, Capcom blesses us something fun. Even though the final game is pretty close to its release date. Gotta ask a question. What stage do you think we'll be "slicing & dicing? *sorry about the previous post, it was just a rant. B...

 
 
 
 

Weekend

From my last post, I meant it to be my rebuttle for 2k7. Although I did enjoy a bevy of games, sadly they weren't a part of my library. Just replayabily in alot of titles has just become a "hit & miss" deal. Btw, thanks for the CoD4 note....

 
 
 
 

Been there, done that

You know this scenario, playing through some of your gaming library; only to find out (said title) isnt fun anymore. Knowing the ins & outs, no matter the difficulty; its a done deal, you beat the game. But online, its a different story, yo...

 
 
 
 

Extinction

Six years ago, a director & crew came up with an idea; how to rebuild a horror film. Flashback to the 90's, the PSX has gained its ground; and taken 3D gaming a step further. Until a horror based title came to be, and it brought back a wav...

 
 
 
 

Hidden Music

Lately I've found myself playing DOA Ultimate (DOA1&2 together). Even though I don't play it often, there's something addicting about this series. 1) No its not because of the female leads; 2) Design? This has always intrigued me. There are...

 
 
 
 

Challenging yourself

To be honest, I haven't played my xbox in awhile. With the 360's ongoing "live" dysfunction, I'm taking a break today to enjoy other titles. I recently made new save files for Castlevania - Curse of Darkness, GunValkyrie, and Panzer Dragoon...

 
 
 
 

Ryu VS Ken - are you bored?

After seeing that lovely amount of boring chatter; and "glorious" footage. Seriously what is Capcom trying to prove here? Everywhere I look, its a positive comment, "It looks amazing!" "I wanna buy this when it comes out!".. yeah whatever y...

 
 
 
 

Advent Fantasy

Think back ten years ago; where was gaming at that point and time. We saw a plumber take his first leaps & steps; and an rpg taken to new heights. 3D was not quite the norm as it is today; diverging from gameplay to cutscene is a rigorous j...

 
 
 
 

Unsure

Right now I'm listening to Levo Lution IX's "Reflex" album; its a bevy of progressive trance remixes dedicated to RPG titles. And it gave me an idea, its made me reflect on how much nextgen games haven't actually been the "best", but at lea...

 
 
 
 

Taking the next step

Videogame developers across the map were making decisions, particularly when to go 3D. Many titles during the 90's were trying different leaps & deisgn ideas. Some worked, and some failed. Only with a few critical exceptions. Although every...

 
 
 
 

Blue Bomber & a Fantasy

-Hero of the future Welcome to day 1, of Mega Man & Final Fantasy week. This special event is dedicated to various classic videogame characters, which many of us grew up with alongside a NES or Famicom. But has anyone defined what a “hero” ...

 
 
 
 

Mega Memories

Gray & Black box, a controller, a weekend I'd never forget. I received Mega Man as a gift from a family friend. I popped in my copy, and began to indulge. Even though the stages were challenging, (we never gave up, now did we?) Who could fo...

 
 
 
 

Spiral pt 2

Blue, funky controller, awesome gameplay, and on a lil grey console. Oh yeah, that sounds familiar. Honestly I haven't played Sonic Adventure in a long time. Since I have the opportunity tonight, I indulged with the opening cinematic with t...

 
 
 
 

Digging a little deeper

Ever look through some of your gaming library, and find some hidden goodies. Like say, an extra song in the music library, or an enemy out of the blue. Sure there's plenty of easter eggs in alot of titles out there, but wonder if they're wo...

 
 
 
 

Weak Fireball

So the day has finally arrived. 1up delivers a screenshot, and cover for 1/08's EGM ish. SFIV Sneak Peek The gimmick? buy the mag = more info included. Does anyone subscribe to EGM anymore? My thoughts about this tease. Just weak. One sing...

 
 
 
 

Got Rings?

I'm going on a retro trip lately. I caught myself playing the "Ultimate Sonic" fanmade game. Addicting as always, I trekked through the first 3 stages (till i lost track of time). I miss stuff like this. Even though I own a Genesis, i have...

 
 
 
 

Snowfall

Hey crew, thanks for the msgs from my last post. My grandma came back home this afternoon. She's doing a bit better (aside from feeling out of it, lack of sleep) hospital visits are a mess. Hopefully she will gain some her strength back wit...

 
 
 
 

Mornings worries

Earlier this morning, I believe my grandma may have had a mild stroke. Lately her health hasnt been at its best, but she's always been a strong person. It hurts to see her in a weak state like this. Living with alzheimers is a tricky thin...

 
 
 
 

Cheetah Men II

Awhile back Kotaku's own Brian Ashcraft brought up an interesting NES title. The game? Cheetah Men II. It was known for being a horrible title, with bugs aplenty and problematic controls. But unlike its cons, its pros was the soundtrack its...

 
 
 
 

Zhu

As of Thanksgiving, I dove into my long unplayed copy of Shenmue II (Xbox version). And I felt that sensation I had with the first game, excited, but also a bit determined. Although its a well nodded title, during my play through thus far, ...

 
 
 
 

Making up title here

Looking @ nextgen a lil differently- Cost, its kinda hurting the wallet even more. Sure gaming has been the same price since day one. But sometimes it just seems like a parasite, untless you have control. Not sure if thats a good analogy, b...

 
 
 
 

Keep on trying

After a "leap of faith", I timed my moves wisely in the last "Babylon" track. Crud, I've never seen a stage so insanely difficult. But I managed to beat it. I feel better, but I really did get frustrated with myself for awhile. And I feel h...

 
 
 
 

Moving Forward

November 22nd, where is this month going? That aside, its also Turkey Day. So I've been keeping myself busy (aside from job hunting), playing some games. I managed to complete Shadow (with the True ending), and now with Riders (Last race ...

 
 
 


About kadoshoone of us since 2:22 AM on 06.14.2007

Every story has a beginning.. and mine starts with the classic consoles. From Atari, NES, to Gen. Odd how things worked out, from blips to characters sprawling over an open world. Either by pipe or a loop-de-loop. Those times have passed, but still are a part of our gamer hearts.

Well my playlist thus far.. Pitfall, Pac-Man, Super Mario Bros 1-3, Castlevania, Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star, Final Fantasy, Metroid, Earthworm Jim, Mega Man, and many more.. this list could take awhile trust me.

Apart from the D-toid family, I'm also a part of the AllGames Community, and the fun show Distributed Failure https://www.distributedfailure.com/
