This year seems to be flying off very quickly, since it's about to April in 4 days. I'm not quite sure if I'm going to play an April Fools joke this year though. I have less than 2 months in school and I'll be out. Even though this year has gotten better for me, I'm still allergic to Monday . In between school and preparing for many other things for later on this year, I've been losing more and more free time in the process.
Meanwhile, I got volume 1 of Bleach two weeks ago. The volume was very good, and I plan on getting volumes 2 and 3. I also got book 2 of Thirst by Christopher Pike. So far, it's amazing. Even though it has 582 pages, I've manages to get page 328 in the past 2 days . I will most likely get book 3 when I get volumes 2 and 3 of Bleach. I haven't purchased any games since January. I think I might just splurge on the next shopping spree I have .
Tomorrow I get to fly a kite. I think it looks good, especially since I'm not very good at drawing. I played archery today . It's not that I was horrible, it's just that some of my arrows got stuck in the ground. Plus, one of my arrows flew over the target. Oh well .
I'm out for day.
The list isn't going in any particular , as some are remixes from the original theme are going to be matched up together(Some were worse than the originals).
Yes, I'm including remixes. But it will still say if it's the best or worst. Off to the list.
The Best and Worst from Street Fighter III 3rd Strike:
First up is Jazzy NYC '99 from Street Fighter III 3rd Strike. This theme song for Alex and Ken(Pictures are below), was very catchy. I also enjoyed Dudley's and Twelve's(Also seen below) themes. The bad thing was that when Street Fighter III 3rd Strike: Online Edition was released, the remixes where not meeting the standards from the original theme. Many(Including me), were disappointed. Although not all the remixes were horrible, a large majority wasn't good at all. I think out of all 20 remixes, I might've liked 2 or 3 of them. The worst ones in my opinion were actually the ones I liked best, which were Alex and Ken's theme, Dudley's, Elena's, and Twelve's. Although Twelve's remix wasn't that bad, it was still a disappointment. I'm submitting the links to the themes.
The sad thing is, Kariu's remix is better than the composer's remix that's actually in the game.
The other game I'm doing in this blog is Alex Kidd: In The Enchanted Castle. This game was fairly good, with decent music. I liked the Castle's theme and the theme were you are in a desert. Although most of theme were good, there was one theme in particular that was just horrible. It was the helicopter theme. That theme song made me want to pull out my eardrums. It was that bad. Again, I am posting the links at the bottom. I can't really say too much about the game, since there wasn't anything bad about the music.
Part 2 of this will be released by the end of this week or early next week
Yep, I'm about to discuss who in my opinion is the worst sidekick. Without a doubt, I think Navi is the flat out worst sidekick. Well for one, she's annoying. Two, she's annoying. And three, she's useless. She may be in my favorite color, but that doesn't mean a thing.
"HEY! LISTEN! HEY! LISTEN! WATCH OUT!" is all I hear when I'm playing the game, and I usually reply with a, "What on Earth do you want??!!". Good grief she's annoying. I can barely play the game in peace. And there was one time, I was playing a part of the game, and she got me killed . I was just playing through a cemetary, and I was about to beat a bad guy. She comes out of nowhere and says, "Look Out!". Before I can even respond, I got killed. Thanks Navi. To top it off, she asks questions that aren't even important. She had came out of nowhere and says, "I wonder if Saria knows about the third spiritual stone..." , and that was the 60th time she said that! A few seconds later.... "I wonder if Saria knows me" *Saves game, quits, and cries to sleep* .
In my opinion she's possibly the worst sidekick in gaming. Also, some other notable mentions that were close to being the worst:
Also, who would be the worst sidekick in your opinion?
Since I haven't made a blog in almost a blog, I decided to make one. Throughout the past few weeks it's been a bit wonky. School has made me be less active now, and my gaming has been put on hold. Furthermore, I'm not even sure when I can start back on my gaming. The 2 weeks have been the most stressful for me.
Aside from the fact that I have a science teacher that has the inability to teach, I had other things going on. Even though my friends were trying to support me, I didn't feel any better.I eventually managed to get myself together, but it's a slow progress. If anything, I might not be able to be as active as I could be with the amount of things going on right now. But remember, I will try to post at least ONCE a each of the unions I post at on a regular basis. Although at the moment, I have free time over this week.
Since I watched Resident Evil Retribution over the weekend, I thought it would be good to make this blog. However, there are more movies under the worst catagory than the best. Off with the list.
1. Mortal Kombat
In my opinion, I think Mortal Kombat is the best movie I've seen based off a game. I thought the characters were spot on, and the acting was decent. Score for this: 4/5
2. Street Fighter
Yeah, the movie was corny, but at least it tried to stayed true to the games. That's what I liked about. I still think Raul Julia looked silly in the M. Bison costume DCore: 3.5/5
3. Resident Evil
This movie was okay, it wasn't great. But then again, most of the movies of the Resident Evil series has been a miss. However, out of all of them, I thought this was the best movie out of all of them. Score: 3/5
Now that I've gotten finished with the best, let's get to the most dreadful movies of them all.....
The Dreadful Worst
1. Legend of Chun Li
What was this?? This movie was horrible, and it looked it could've been made in 10 minutes. Could I also mention that there were characters I had no clue about? Just pitiful.
The good about the movie: The actors got paid
The Bad: The movie was poorly made. As a fan of Chun Li, I don't think her name should be insulted the way it was by the movie.
*Sighs* This movie was just not good, as simple as that. The blood doesn't even look realistic. On top of that, it was a boring mess that was put together in a movie.
Bad: Almost everything.
They tried, they really did. I hate to say it, but it really just didn't work for me. The costumes were good, but it doesn't cover the fact that the movie was bad.
Good: It never made it to the theaters
Bad: Acting was mediocre and the storyline was confusing
4. Resident Evil: Retribution
It's not that the movie was terrible, I just thought it was mediocre. The movie didn't make sense at all, and everyone was confused(Except for me). The only reason why I watched it was because I knew my mom and sister would get confused, so I basically gave them my knowledge from the game. I somewhat wish I didn't watch it.
Good: It looks good on an HD tv
Bad: Too confusing, the acting for Wesker was laughable, and the fact that people are following someone that isn't real.
Well, that's it for the night.
The time has come that it is finally 2013, especially after the Mayans predicted the apocalypse and failed. I am happy to be alive for another year, and that everyone in my family is alive as well. I met awesome people on this site, and I hope everyone is having a good new year as well. Now... For the celebration party!

Most of you know already that I have to go to school 5 days a week, and 7 hours a day. Throughout the past 2 weeks, school has been frustrating and tiring. And some of the days, I just wanted to talk to one of my friends and rage about what happened throught out that week.
I know Konata, I know . Wednesday, I had to perform in front of the entire school(Since I'm in choir). Once the performance was over, I was okay. The only problem was, there were multiple disruptions throught both the choir's performance and the band's performance. Oddly enough, I heard people laughing while I was on stage. It took a lot of me not to hit anyone. I usually don't get mad often, but they made me absolutely embarrassed of my generation. Why is that they think it's okay to talk through the performance? That to me was irritating, not to mention there were over 900 people in one room. School to me gets worse as it goes on. More and more I get annoyed by my classmates. They think they're all that and that they'll be the best piece of chicken you'll ever taste, but they're not. It's not cool to disrespect people, let alone a TEACHER. A guy in my Spanish class argues with the teacher back and forth like there's no tomorrow. All because she wouldn't give him any money. Really? All over a simple dollar? That's stupid and rude.
On an off topic note, I feel that part of the reason my generation is like this is because of the shows they watch. Honestly, I don't understand half the shows that air on television anymore. At least when I was shows actually had a meaning to it, now al that's left are reality shows. Most people my age watch 16 and preganant and Jersey Shore(Honestly I find 16 and pregnant to be terrible). Why MTV? Why did you have to corrupt my generation?
Social media has gotten out of hand. And whenever I tell my friends I don't have a facebook, they look at me as if they've seen a ghost. I don't really find a purpose of having a facebook account, besides talking to family members who live away from me. And why do they have a twitter? I'm either falling really behind on what's going on, or they've gone nuts. Where are the parents in this?
Don't even get me started on music. If I have to hear one more song by One Direction, I think I'm going to go insane. I'm not sure which was worse, the Justin Bieber hype, or this new One Direction epidemic. I don't really care for a lot of the artists today. The only ones I actually listen to regularly are Mariah Carey, Katy Perry, and other artists. Other than that, I've just listened to J-Pop and K-Pop.
I'm currently embarrassed at the moment. I'll still be posting.
Some of you might I have noticed that I had randomly dissapered this past week. The issue was because my modem to my computer was no longer working, meaning I had to get a new one. However, the new one didn't ship in until Wednesday, which decided not to work until this morning(Thank Jesus). Meanwhile, I had gotten sick for a few days,but I've recovered.
Monday of this week, I got braces. Yes, they hurt a bit, but I'm used to them now. I have to get used to all of the rules of what I can and can't drink as well. My Thanksgiving was pretty good, I had a good time with my family, and I was able to eat pretty much everything, which was a plus .
Well, that's all I can think of for now. I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving
I was thinking about it over the weekend, so I felt that I should express my opinion about it. Over the past few years of me playing games, I've encountered some overrated games and underrated games. I realized that many of the overrrated games I played I didn't, and the ones that were underrated I liked. So here's my list.
Overrrated Games I Have Played
You can NOT believe how dissapointed I was when I played this game. I'm a huge fan of the franchise, so this game was a step backwards for me. From the gameplay, to the fact that the game didn't even have a command list. This game was just a complete miss for me.
2. Call of Duty Series
It's not that the series is bad, I think the series is decent. I just feel that the series was overhyped, which kind of ruined it for me. Again, I found the game to be decent, not great.
Can someone explain to me what this game is all about? Not only did I not understand the game, but I could not understand why a majority of my friends were all mushy over the game. Dolphins may be cute, but this game was far from it.
4.We Love Katamari
I could never understand(And I possibly never will) how this game became popular. I don't understand it. Even though I found some humor in the game, it could not sugar coat the fact that the game itself had no storyline.
1. No One Lives Forever
I never understand why this game was bad mouthed. I loved this game, from beginning to end. It was humerous and stealthy at the same time, making it both fun and challenging. I hope there will be a 3rd game added to the series.
2. Mischief Makers
This game may not be known by many, but I thoroughly enjoyed this game. Even though this game was a bit on the weird side of things, that's what I liked about it. It may sound weird, but sometimes weird games are the way to. Keep rescuing the old man Marina! SHAKE SHAKE!
3. Resident Evil 0
What was so bad about this game? Yes, Rebecca was weak, but it was still a great game. The storyline was good, and the cutscenes had nice graphics. And the best part of all, you get to kill zombies. A nice prequel to the series.
4 Yoshi's Story
This game had really poor scores. All I want to know is why. I thought whenever Yoshi was included in a game, it was good. Even though I died a lot while playing the game, it was pretty funny to see a rainbow full of Yoshi's across my tv screen.
Well, that's all for today.
A few days ago I watched the Legend of Chun Li. I will just let this meme speak for me first.
For one, I don't know what I was thinking. Assuming this movie would be good, but I should know by now movies based on games never turn out as well as planned(Minus RE). The movie itself had a lot of potential to be good, but seemed rather rushed and confusing instead. The commercial trailer looked good(When I saw it at that time), never(And I mean NEVER) assume a movie is good just because it had a good commercial.
The storyline of course is about Chun Li(Which is my favorite character ). By the time the movie was over I was like,"What the heck did I just watch?". Seriously, the movie is confusing enough, but the way the special moves were portrayed by the actress was so bad it ended up laughable. Ex., they ruined the spinning bird kick.
Originally:What it was instead:
See what I mean? I know the spinning bird kick can't really be pulled off in real life, but the least they could do was make it look believable. I don't think she even hit them. Another thing I thought was weird was how in the game, Chun Li's mother was never mentioned. But in the movie, BAM! There she is. At first, I was so confused in so many ways(I still am), but I just said forget it;I already paid for the movie (Rental only, Praise Jesus).
What makes it bad the most is how the storyline doesn't even tie together and the acting. Another thing, am I the only one that lives on this earth and got confused by M.Bison having a daughter? That just made me even more confused. Then they had characters in the movie I haven't even heard of before in my life. At least Taboo(The person who portrayed Vega), did what he needed to get and got out(Despite the fact that he was possibly the best actor out of the whole thing).
I am just going to end here and eat cake to calm my nerves.
I entered a union how I would originally before the glitch outbreak, looked the forums, and posted in my union! It actually works now. I'm not sure if it will work for everyone. If that is the case, then.....
5 seconds ago, I saw that I was unable to see my avy. Now I'm unable to edit my avy. The union boards aren't bad, but I can barely post in my MK Union(Which is kind of dead). These glitches need to be fixed.
Unfortunately, the one thing I thought I gave up on has been short lived. Killer Instinct. This game was my childhood for the N64, along with Super Mario and Star Fox. I stumbled through a few videos, mostly about how Microsoft continues to torture the fanbase of KI. I don't ask for a lot, and what's funny is that the one thing I ask for I can't even get. I feel bad for Rare, because as much as they want to make a new Ki, they can't. I'm trying not to complain, but I could not keep this to myself. Microsoft has basically performed the song "Forget You" by Cee Lo Green for everyone to hear. Netherealam Studios, if you have time, PLEASE make a 3rd one. I don't care what system you make it on, just make sure it's good. That's all for today.
I would've posted days earlier(Probably yesterday), but I got lazy. Anyways, I feel that I should say what I think of recent artists and controversy of people from reality shows.
Chad and Evelyn head butting, tv show dropping, and divorce: And yes, they literally head butted each other. I really never cared about Basketball Wives which comes on VH1, but the reason why I know about this is because someone told me about it. Tbh, I'm really confused because the two got married 40 days ago. Yesterday(Or the day before), Chad and Evelyn got in a fight, long story short, it ended with Chad head butting Evelyn and going to jail for it(She went to the hospital due to a laceration in her forehead). Not too long after that, their reality show, "Ev and Ocho" got dropped. Today was announced after 40 days of marriage, Evelyn filed for divorce.
My opinion: I found the fact that Evelyn filed for divorce to be expected(Don't judge me), simply because she left her other husband due to the lack of money. Chad got dropped from his Basketball team(But imo, basketball has one of the worst investments). With the head butting incident, I think neither one of them were right. Chad is wrong for beating Evelyn, while Evelyn possibly started it all. I think this due to watching footage from the show Basketball Wives. But at the same time, I don't think it was really their week. Enough of this, on to next topic.
Drake and his, "I am the first artist to Rap and Sing comment": Drake, did you think about the words before they came out of your mouth? Lauryn Hill, Ja Rule, and many others have acheived this before you have.Also, how Dare you make a song with Aaliyah after her family requested for you not to do this? Let me get out of my seat so you can get in it Drake.
PSA's from the cast members from the cast members from Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta: Mimi Faust and K.Michelle from Love and Hip Hop:Atlanta both made PSA commercial(I will be showing the pictures of these people at the end of this). I'm confused by both commercials. Not because of the concepts(Domestic Violence and Hate Crimes against women), but due to the people PSA chose for the commercial. K. Michelle, what happened to you occured years ago needs to be kept in the past. If you ex-boyfriend really beat you that bad, calling the police would've been the best solution. Mimi, after episode 4, I no longer had sympathy. I no longer had sympathy due to the decisions she made.
Chad and Evelyn:
I couldn't really post anymore pictures. Sorry. I'm sick of foolishness that's happened. That's all for today.No one will read this possibly.
The Mortal Kombat Union that I've been working on for months has been formed. I would like to thank the officers for joining the union, and the recruits who will join. Invite whoever you can. I hope everyone will enjoy your time here.
