Thank You

Only my wii games sold, the others are still mostly here with me. I barely made $300 off of them. I bundled the Wii with the remaining games that didn't sale for $200 minimum. I'm hoping that it sells. I forcibly overdrafted my account so that it's at a -$490.XX balance right now. My contribution, my girlfriends and her church kept her safe. Now all that I need to do is to continue to work, find a second or better job and get myself back n track. We have 90 days from last Friday to get $1,750 so that we can pay off the other half of her debt.

Paypal is holding on to most of my money. I got half of the games shipped right now. the other half are still with me. I'm really struggling to get the money to ship these items off right now. Since I've never sold anything they're holding on to the money for two more weeks or until positive feedback flows in. I just shipped off the first set of games so I may not have anyway shipping the rest until next week. At least by then I can ship off the games, then transfer the money to my bank so that I can at least try to pay my bells and rent.

I'm not asking for millions of dollars, just enough to help me get my balance back to zero please. If you could please donate to me with one of the download links below, I would be greatly appreciative. I'm still exploring as many avenues as possible for making more money. I'm looking for another job and a promotion at my current job. I'm donating blood plasma at CSL starting tomorrow. I'm open to most things, donating sperm isn't one of them. I have strong beliefs against doing so. That and I'm not good at whacking off. Even if I was, I wouldn't help to father a child if I wouldn't be taking care of it. Please help.

More details

I'm essentially trying to raise $1,750 by October 8th. I have $400 in hand now after paying my rent. I hope that through a combination of sales and donations that I will be able to save her. This isn't a game for me, it's not a simple pass-fail test. My Princess is not in another castle. She's right here in my castle with the law ready to drag her out with me being powerless. I will have the auctions up fairly soon. Tomorrow hopefully, if not the next morning. Below is a very, very, very rough estimate of what I have to put up. I only placed up what I could remember that worked and was in good condition. there are quite a few typos at the moment. I'm still in a bit of a haze. The auctions will be thoroughly edited, and future blog posts will be more detailed. Feel free to ask me questions or leave comments. Please share this link using the social networking links below. Please, just help us.

The shoulder buttons do need to be fixed, but the system is still within its' warranty. I can ship the system to you directly and allow you to complete the free repairs or I can send it in for the repairs myself, but have nintendo ship it to you. Other than that it's great. I would've replaced it before moving but it was packed up by mistake. Just got it out of storage and it still plays games great. Nintendo will repair it quickly, they may even replace the entire system for a refurbished one and just transfer the games over. It happens for reasons unkown to everyone but can only be seen as a plus.

I need as much as help as you're willing to provide

I have a steady job as customer support tech. I've just started to rent a home so that I can properly house myself, my three sisters and my nephew. I've fallen in love with a beautiful woman that just so happens to feel the same way. She's my girlfriend and she's become my heart. We've been going steady for a while now, I've known her for nearly two years now. She's sweet, funny and extremely caring. She's honest and a true believer in God. She's still human just like the rest of us. She sins like us and has sinned long before I met her. We believed that everything was going onto the right track until recently.

In the past she worked at a store that she stole money from. She was fired and signed a paper admitting to doing so. She did do it. She tried to work out a repayment or something that would allow her to try to redeem herself but it fell on silent ears. nearly four years later they've brought her to court with a lawsuit and documents that she's signed admitting to it. We need to pay back half of the owed amount by October 8th or she'll be facing criminal charges.

If we can raise the money up she'll be placed on an "under the radar" program, have to perform 6- hours of community service and stick to a payment plan for paying off the other half of the money. She didn't save up the money that she owed because she believed that their silence meant that they didn't want anything to do with her. Now we know that they were just "behind" in their litigation and do not respond to people before hand. I'm selling many of the things that I own, not least of which will be all of my video games. I'll be selling them on ebay, the posts will go up within two days. I need to test everything to make sure that they still work, get pictures and do quality comments so that I can have descriptive auctions. Everything will start at $0.99. If you see a game that you like that you want, please bid. Maybe you have a friend or relative that may want the game or something else that I'm selling.

I'll be updating this blog with updates as to how things are proceeding. Also, if you want to help out you can help spread news of my auctions, or even donate if it's within your power or heart to do so. I want help, but not at the expense of others. I do kindly thank you for considering and reading this post. I will continue to provide more details and updates on the situation. Thank you.

One More thing

A retro styled console has been built. It will be entirely supported by homebrew developers. I hope it can take off, it is more of a hobby type of project that I may decide to join in order to test my still developing programming skills.

The I learned of this interesting project from Gonintendo


There are so many errors below, I won't be blogging at night from my Wii anymore. Of course I can't since my Wii's MAC address has been blocked from the source of free wifi I was using. My DS hasn't, I'll name my DS after my Wii to mess with the guy and play some Advance Wars: Days of Ruin online tonight. Hahahaha.

I'm now in World 6 of SMB 3, I have one life left. I am going to die. I lost most of my life making fun of the walking candle ember in the fortress near level 3. hat was a dumb thing to do.

I am also playing through Sonic 3 & Knuckles (Sonic & Knuckles with Sonic 3 on top). I have a game of just Sonic, just tails, and just Knuckles going. I played each until I died for the first time. First was Knuckles, who made it to spring, weird zone with the boss fight in the air, he's in 2nd place right now. My Sonic didn't make it passed the 2nd world, a watery grave of evil. Yes, my Tails game is the furthest, making it to the Casino Zone, Act 2. I'm sure that I would have beat the entire game as Tails without losing a life if I wasn't stumped by weight puzzle. There's a sppinning cylindrical casino thingthat bobs up and down as Tails jumps on it. Timing the jumps Tails can make it delve lower into the gap its' blocking, but not low enough to get by. Needless to say, Tails only died because the 10th minute arrived. Whenever that comes it's death for everyone.

I'll be updating with a real and more coherent post later. It'll probably be to announce that I'm starting the Dave Perry Challenge using the DS as my system of choice. Too late for that i guess, I'll discuss and post the details later and will be using this blog to track my progress.

I'm So Full of Fail

Just like that pathetic marketing guy Neku insults, I am so full of fail. How and why? I lost every life I had in Super Mario Bros. 3 in the 3rd world, the water world. Big buford ate me, I hate him. Who/What is "Big Buford? That's what I used to call the giant Petey Pirahna (or it may actually be Petey Pirahna) that leaps from mellow waters of SMB 3 and eats Mario (Before today mine used to prefer Luigi).

How did I find myself staying up late in the night and playing Super Mario Bros. 3? I needed to play it, my body told me so. I've had this need going off all year, but I finally succumbed to it yesterday and downloaded the game from the Virtual Console. I Iove the VC's convenience,the legality of it is cool too. I may still be seen as idiot for buying it.I only have the game and emulator for it on my pc, my DS, my GBA, my flash drives, my e-mail, and even on my Wii. Even though I have emulators and roms I rarely use them. To even be able to play the game on my DS or GBA means I own hardware capable of pirating games, but like a nut I still buy games. The last DS game Ibought was Crosswords, with the two before that being Apollo Justice and Advance Wars: Days of Ruin. I don't remember the specifics of how I came to own Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword, but I beleve I found it on a bus or in a rest room. I'm in college andI can definitely use the money I spend on non-necessities on better things like hookers or pop, but part of being a gamer is collecting. I choose to collect games as part of my hobby.No, I don't wear plastic gloves and keep them vacuum sealed, or only turn them on test them, I play them off the real carts and I read through the manuals. I just love owning things, I'm too attached to this world. It's also nice being able to back-up my game saves as I would have been shit out of luck when my original DS (a phat) got drenched in a car wash when the sun roof was opened partway through the process. The game was fried, would not load ever again. Or rather it rusted and I took to long to replace my DS and replaced it. I sold it on ebay honestly, didn't get a lt from it, but I kept my box and manual, turns out there was a way to clean it and get it working again and the person I sold it to knw exactly what to do. Congrats to him, he scored games the way I often do. Beedrill. Wasn't I supposed to be blogging about my epic sucking t SM 3?

So anyway, I finally play the game, and the first thing I notice is how off the graphics are. After all, I only played NES version for a short amount of time, I was quickly upgraded to All Stars and actually played America's 2 a lot of the time befor 3 arrived in my house. At 5-6 years old I was a beast, the only thing that stopped me was one stage in the Ice world of 5 (or was it 6, I think 6 is the sky one) and world 8. Yes, I have never beaten the game, my favorite game of all time. The game I longed to play for nearly 8 months. Eight months ago I played Super Mario Galaxy. It's a beautiful game and wonderfully executed, but the 3D Mario's have nearly as strong of a hold on me as the 3D Zeldas. In fact, I stopped playing Galaxy within a week or so of buying it and didn't start again until last month. I had 23 stars before I forgot about the game and flocked to No More Heroes, now I'm up to about 110 of them. I want the full ending and the satisfaction of finally completing a 3D Mario game. Sunshine, I stopped at 114 shines, my memory card was erased by evil and I said to hell with the game and many others.

So Galaxy resparked my mario gene, after all, Galaxy is influenced by SMB 3 a lot. Both are games full of style, challenged, and worthless Luigi. After I loaded the game up and quickly trounced most of the first world I'm killed on the airship. I decided to taunt Bowser's kid (In SMB3 the first seven are still alive, Mario and Luigi kill them in the sequel: Super Mario World). I got anfry and ran into a bullet bill. I won the 3rd time through. 2nd world, I breeze through everything, ven the evil sun which I killed cold heartedly. I lose on the air ship again. Besides being frustrated with the air shipsI'm in love with the game again and am amazed that I remember so many secrets. I even discovered a new thing and glitch that lets me exploit donut blocks to keep them floating. 3rd world I thought I was going to bowl it over like I almost did the previous two. I never expected to have any trouble with any par of the game until worlds five or 6. In evel 7 or 8, that evil fish continually eats me. He whittles me down to one life, I even have a hammer so that I won't have to do the level, but my pride wouldn't let me use it then. fat abstard eats me again, but at 0 lives I'm still aliv. How blessedmuct I be? He gets me immediately, I didn't even gt to jump on the green koopas back. I am so full of fail. Can't play SMB 3 nor properly stay on topic in a simple Brawl. I'll edit this tomorrow from a real pc,I"m on the Wii channel. I will ne\ot chabnge any text,I will simply create paragraphs by parting the run-on paragraphs.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Crystal Bearers Various
See More Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Crystal Bearers Various at IGN.com
Parachutes aren't for everyone.

Where are you? There was a very promising but short trailer shown ages ago. It's had my attention more than many other games I'm actually playing and there's been no new information on this game.

The only new piece of potential information about this game is that the main protagonist looks like the king from "Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King".

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Crystal Bearers Various

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King Various
See More Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King Various at IGN.com

The art style is essentially the same with a different execution in each game, but there are enough similarities between the two for a case to be made here. Their ages are also different. Could My Life as a King be a game that's really the memories of older, fallen king? something that he's reminiscing about?

Is that title telling of what happens in the Crystal Bearers? Is the main protagonist really the king? If so, why is he no longer a king as the tile would seem to imply? "My Life as a King". "As" doesn't always imply past tense, but in this case it could. Is the main protagonist related to the king? he could be king before or after his ruling or it could be a relative or descendant. I don't believe My Life as a King is simply a filler title. I believe that the story of that game has some sort of significant relation to the Crystal Bearers besides being a Crystal Chronicles title.

de Blob is Evil!

This blog is not here to deliver the latest news and most up-to-date reviews. It is here to simply express passing and active thought about the games I play and the games that interests me, along with anything to do with gaming.

The video above is from IGN's latest preview of the game. I've been keeping tabs on this game and everything so far has been looking good. It's an exclusive for a system I own, I like the premise of having to literally bring color back to the world, and I finally get who you're plying as.

Anyone could tell you that it was de Blob, but often before video would have de Blob in motion and use a camera change to show him. I'd just acknowledge that the freaky, evil thing was de Blob. Now I can truly see that he is the blob that you play as. It sounds crazy, I know. I have to live with myself and you don't so be grateful.

That above is the blob. It contrasts greatly with the overlying world an both its' citizens and government conquerors. Without reading anything on this game, anyone could easily mistake it for an enemy. I like him, but he just seems like a menace and not the hero he's being made out to be. It's a very nice change of pace for a game, normally he would be an enemy or an anti-hero. Instead he's not only the hero, he's de blob.
