Are you hyped? Is this all you ever wanted?
Dissapointed to see this on 3DS and not on PS3/X360/Wii?

Poll Results

And so the poll has ended. The question was "How many hours per day do you waste on the computer"? Let's see the results.

As you can see, there is a total dominance of those who stay on the computer more than 6 hours per day. To be honest, I am one of them, and I do think it's too much time wasted.
So c'mon guys, let's try to change our lifestyle!

My Games of Choice

Everyone has their favorite games and so do I. Based on my experience and on what I've played, I'll post here, by genre, what my favorite games are. Of course, I'll have to leave many stuff out, but at least I'll let you guys have an idea about my taste.

RPG: Suikoden II

 This is probably the hardest choice, having played hundreds and hundreds of RPGs. When I first played Suiko2, I wasn't familiar with the series and though the system and graphics weren't too catchy, but as story progresses, I found myself in love with this gem. Definitely the best story a RPG ever had.

Adventure: Snatcher

Without a doubt, my favorite adventure game ever. Even though I loved Policenauts and Famitan2, this is definitely my top tier. Graphics, music, voices, gameplay, fanservice, this game has it all. A true masterpiece by Hideo Kojima.

Action: Streets of Rage II

Even today, I still prefer 2D beat'em ups to 3D action games, so this is my choice. Streets of Rage II, a game that made my childhood afternoons occupied. The game's flow is just amazing, each stage and character is unique, and Yuzo Koshiro made his best work for this game also.

Fighting: Rival Schools

Another hard choice, specially because I prefer 2D Fighters as a whole. But Rival Schools was one of he first fighting games I played and it will forever remain in my heart as one of the best. Interesting characters, excellent music, fun gameplay and good story mode, this game sure showed me how good fighting games can be.

Strategy: Age of Empires II

Not one of my favourite genres, but this game sure was fun back in the day. Build your empire, occupying territory and conquering the land, this game sure was revolutionary.

Driving: Gran Turismo 3

My first PS2 game and one of the reasons why I love driving today. A driving game couldn't be more realistic back in the early 2000's. A true gem for any car and driving lover.

VGM round 7!

Alright, how about some Game Boy Advance music this time? GBA sure had alot of titles, and among them many good tracks. I'll leave here some of my favourites.

Golden Sun - Venus Lighthouse (Perfect song for any last dungeon)

Castlevania Aria of Sorrow - Ruined Castle Corridor

Mega Man Zero 4 - Esperanto

Zone of the Enders Fist of Mars - Main Menu Theme

Sonic Adventure - Egg Rocket Zone

Gyakuten Saiban - Cornered

GO GO Power Rangers!

When people think about Power Rangers, they remember the awesome series they used to watch as kids.
But the franchise also reached the video game industry, and I always think about the awesome Mighty Morphin Power Rangers developed by Natsume for the SNES.
This is a very good beat'em up, much like Final Fight 3 or Ninjawarriors. Fast, colored and fun, this game gives players exactly what they want.
You can choose 1 from the 5 Power Rangers and engage in battle with Rita, your archenemy. Travelling from various levels and fighting many bosses, I guarantee this game is full of fun, even if you aren't a fan of the series.
Another strong point of the game is the awesome soundtrack, with amazing and catchy tracks.
Enjoy the video and comment what you think about the game!

VGM round 6

Ok, this time I'll try to post the most underrated musics from RPGs that I know.

The Granstream Saga - Arona Town

Terranigma - The Underworld

Riviera - The Angels Foretell Their Demise

Yeah, I broke the 100 followers barrier. Thanks alot for liking my blog guys!
To commemorate, let's have an awesome Castlevania Metal Remix by one of my favorite arrange composers, S.S.H.
Enjoy the video!

Trip to the Past - Snatcher

1996. One third of the world's population is wiped out due to the outbreak of a mysterious virus. 2044. A strange life form mysteriously appears out of nowhere in the city of Neo Kobe. This mysterious bioroids later become known as "Snatchers".
This is the introduction of Snatcher, a cyberpunk adventure game created by Hideo Kojima, creator of the worldwide known saga Metal Gear.
So, what's this game about? You control Gillian Seed, the protagonist, who has no recollection of his past. Recalling only the word "Snatcher", he becomes a JUNKER in hopes of recovering his memory.
Travelling around the city of Neo Kobe in a PC-style adventure game style, your only option is to uncover the truth and find out what "Snatchers" really are.
Having only an english released on the criticized Mega CD system, Snatcher still remains in the hearts of the hardcore gamers as one of the best games created.
For those who are curious, check out the wonderful introduction of this masterpiece.

VGM round 3

Here's some more music that I love, I'll try to get away from the mainstream again and post some not-so-known tracks for you guys. Hope you enjoy my taste!

PS: Sorry if all the Youtube links are causing laggy browser for anyone.

Rudora no Hihou - The Spirit Chaser


Final Fantasy Mystic Quest - Last Castle

Valis - The Fantasm Soldier

Psychic Force 2 - Burning Storm

Ventrilo Harassment

Ventrilo Harrassment - Duke Nukem

Ventrilo Harrassment - World of Warcraft

Ventertainment - 1337 haxz0rz

Trip to the Past - Dragon Ball Z Yu Buu Retsuden

Probably not many remember this gem from the Mega Drive generation. Outside Japan, it was released in European countries like France, Spain and Portugal, due the huge success DBZ had there.
Talking about the game, this was a competitor to the SNES's Super Butouden counterparts. Sharing a similiar gameplay and story mode, its strongest point was the superb soundtrack created by composers Amayangu, Asshii and Yokoyanma. From the introduction to the staff roll, this games shares very catchy music that much players still remember to this day. It was also the first game to included Krillin as a playable character, who never made an appearance on any of the 3 Super Butouden.
I strongly recommend every DBZ fan to try this at least once, and be aware, the music won't get out of your head for the next days.

Tuesday, September 7, 2010


Here's another post about the previous subject. I'll put more of my favorite tracks and try to avoid what's mainstream, that way some might find previously unheard music.

Samurai Legend Musashi - Village of the Sacret Beast

dot Hack - Water Capital Mac Anu (seriously, hearing this always gives me chills)

Captain Tsubasa 3 - Germany Theme (Fire shot!)

Guilty Gear X - Writhe in Pain


Video Game Music it's something I love to hear. From the times when game music were Bips to today's orchestras, I always felt fascinated when I heard good tunes playing while I was gaming.
If I prefer game music over "usual" music? I really can't tell, but it's quite possibly.
And now I'll leave some of my favorite pieces.

Ace Combat 4 Shattered Skies - Megalith

Castlevania - Wicked Child

Suikoden II - The Chase

Dragon Ball Z Bu Yuu Retsuden - Staff Roll

Sonic 3 - Hidrocity Zone Act 2

Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris. The one and only. Some know him from his acting, others from what internet made him. How about some curious facts about him?

1 - Chuck Norris's tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried.
2 - When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night he check his closet for Chuck Norris.
3 - Chuck Norris has already been to Mars; that's why there are no signs of life there.
4 - The Great Wall of China was originally created to keep Chuck Norris out. It failed.
5 - Chuck Norris's iPod came with a real charger instead of just a USB cord.
6 - Chuck Norris knows where Carmen Sandiego is.
7 - If you have 5 dollars and Chuck Norris has 5 dollars, Chuck Norris has more money than you.
8- If Chuck Norris is late, time better slow the f*** down.

Dat ball

Some call it football, others soccer, but no matter what it is called, it's one (if not THE one) of the most famous sports in the world.
Best sport ever? No doubt.


Final Fantasy VII, probably one of the most overrated and loved games ever. If you've never played it, you may be wondering, what is all the hype about? Is this a good game? Is this what made Squaresoft so famous?
To be honest, this game probably started my love for RPGs. Sure, it may have flaws, a bad translation and a very annoying fanbase, but when it was first released back in 1997, this sure was a masterpiece, like nothing ever seen before.
Love it or hate it, Final Fantasy VII marked the RPG genre and the Playstation generation.
Here's a little review video, done by the craziest person on Earth.
