Salutations you damn dirty apes, I am vysethebold, fine purveyor of tales in any form whether they be in video game, film, comic, lyrical, or literary format. I’m on the constant lookout for something new and entertaining in all forms media. I scour all of obscurity for the best of stories, and many times I enjoy the terrible ones just as well. My theory is that the only truly terrible forms of entertainment are mediocre boredom fountains many of which may come in the form of easy listening radio stations or romantic comedies. The entertainment piece in question need not be a carefully perfect composed spectacle, but it needs to be unique and have character. These qualities are what fascinate me in media.
I’m not a guy who believes in ghost but this is something I cant explain. Thats why I’m posting it her to see if anyone else can debunk it or give me a reason to write it off. I’ve had a
few experiences before mainly getting sick upon entering a house where something tragic happened or having the feeling of being touched on my arm or shoulder.I’ve done a few
things with the Ouija board but it was mostly just me trying to scare my niece and nephew into thinking that a house was haunted by moving it around to whatever i wanted.
anyway here is what happened that night.
only person up at this …
This is the part 1 of The Fighting Game Fanatics: Capcom Vs SNK review, introducing new co-host Rod Fuller… In this part we battle it out to see whos better, Capcom or SNK? The Next Review will be
the Lets Play (LP) of the game. But in this one we duke it out! Enjoi! …
So CK and I got in to see JewWario. We opted to stand in the back of the room because we’re cool like that. They could only let so many people into the room, however, as the Fire Marshall is a douche. Zhu Zhu and Perry didn’t make it in.
Because there is an exactly-calculated one-man difference between everybody getting out safely and everybody burning alive with no hope.
JewWario was actually really interesting. Once they got things rolling, he talked at length about how to get your consoles to play import games. The DS plays them natively no matter what region it is. The PS2 needs a top-loader installed. And other such tips. About halfway through the panel, I get a text from N1NJ4 saying “Smells awesome in there”. I look around, and he’s standing inside the room, on the other side of the doorway from me, laughing. When I looked back minutes later, he was gone.
JewWario took some questions. One in particular caught my interest. At first, it was about Takahashi’s Challenge, but then he corrected himself to Takeshi’s Challenge. And I remember thinking, “Takeshi? Surely he can’t mean Beat Takeshi. Is there a Takeshi’s Castle game?” Finally, the panel wrapped up and we waited at the back of the room for Lotus Prince. I got bored and wandered off to see where that fantastic music was coming from. Turns out, we were next door to the JamSpace. I watched a band play a little Mega Man music and went back to get the guys to join me, but they were all busy with blah.
Eventually, we’re standing outside the room, and JewWario comes out with the Psychotaku. LP gets a picture with the two of them, and then I get one with the three of them. We hang out and talk for a bit, and then they must be on their way. I really like JewWario, and fully intend to check out his stuff, now. I’ve never seen anyone look so genuinely and completely interested in and pleased to be talking with his fans. He’s a really nice guy and, adding that to his interesting and informative panel, suddenly commands my respect.
While we’re here, I take another look at the sign by the JamSpace, and I realize… while I was in JewWario’s panel… I MISSED BRENTALFLOSS!
On Friday, we showed up to MAGFest and wandered past the severely diminished registration line (by daily comparison). N1NJ4 immediately points out to me that he just saw brentalfloss go down the escalator. I book it like there’s no tomorrow, then have a leisurely ride down as I see him walking out of sight. Now, my first thought is, “Wow, holy shit, he’s got a pretty big head.” My second thought was, “Ah, he looks like he’s with his girlfriend and CK said everybody’s gonna contact him about interviews and he’s got everything under control.” So I didn’t jump off the side of the escalator and knock down thirty people and then hump brentalfloss’ leg, like I was considering.
And then we never saw him again.
Let that be a lesson to you: I do not make good decisions. Jumping, knocking, and humping is the proper procedure for any and all brentalfloss encounters in the future. Make a note of it.
This really double-sucks because he and Metroid Metal were the two people/groups thereof that I had wanted to see and interview during my time there the most. I bought both of their CDs ahead of time in case they didn’t have any on-hand for me to buy and get signed.
So I’m out some cash, too, I guess.
I interviewed Sam Walters of King Hell! read the awesomeness
So the area directly underneath registration is the Dealer’s… uh, Room. I guess. I mean, it’s in a room. It’s not outside, so I’m assuming that’s true. I’m not an expert on the dichotomy of rooms and not rooms, but you could also call it an area or a general… sort of… dealery… zone.
We walk around the Dealer’s Coordinates for a bit, checking out all the shirts and artwork they’ve got for sale. One guy’s got some crazy Link artwork going on, and a bunch of other stuff I’ve completely forgotten, which is a shame, because it was rather amazing. You really should have seen it. Every time I get near the Game Room side of the place, I hear sweet Mega Man music cranked out of this one TV that people are stopping by to get their asses kicked on (I assume they got their asses kicked because Jesus, Capcom, why can’t you make one single goddamn game that I’m good at?). It’s a decent collection of dealer stands. Look out, more Otakon comparisons coming your way!
Otakon has about nine billion merchants. And there are only ever, like, three that I’m interested in. Two of those are because they’re selling manga and I need the next volume of Trigun Maximum. And the other one is usually a place with a cool action figure or shirt I like. MAGFest has like ten. And they’ve all got something interesting and if I had more money, I would be broke.
Anyhoo, as I mentioned this was next to the Game Room. Which is three rooms. Well, one of those rooms is also the same room that is the Dealer’s Room, so, well, let’s just not get into that right now.
All this geography is giving me middle school flashbacks.
Hey Everyone! Welcome to my VERY first video!!! Today we take a look at TMNT: The Aracade Game for both the NES and the actual Cabinet!
