Video Games Time Capsule, numero dose (((*Love*In*The*Year*3000*)))

No one should not be tormented by not being perfect.  I have had a few instances in my life when I have felt that way though.  When I was living with my mom I remembered bullying somebody back when I was in grade school... A long time ago.  And it bugged me quite a bit.  I also said somethings to my housemates that I later regretted saying and fixated on.  The asperger's syndrome makes this more prominent for me than it might make it for others.  But I can learn to control it better.


I shouldn't get down on myself for not being perfect.  THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE.  What I really need to focus on is being GOOD.  

And I'm glad to say I have done that pretty well.  I take time out of my day to burn mix CD's of my friend's favorite music for him.  I give 110% at work.  I volunteered to help the CAER food shelf package stuff.  I make people laugh with my ridiculously cheesy sense of humor.  I love my parents and step parents, step brothers, half siblings, and the rest of my family.  I'm a great friend.  Really the list never ends.  

DUDE!!!  listen to Public Enemy.  Best rap in the world.

And now for something completely different:

Doctor Dee's Video Game Time Capsule:

Pac-Man Arcade Gold (Jakks Pacific Plug 'n' Play console with a collection of old school games)  All the games are programmed into the controller, thereby making this game console very portable and durable.  The games: Pac-Man, Galaxian, New Rally-X, Bosconian, Pac-Man Plus, Pac & Pal and my favorite SUPER PAC MAN.  I love this thing.  Super Pac Man is great cuz if you eat a certain kind of pellet you temporarily gain the ability to eat through certain walls!  There is also levels devoted to eating as much food as possible.  Garfield would love this game.  Each level is unique and if your good you might be able to break the preset high-score and save a high score of your own.  It took me a few weeks to do that.  The graphics lag behind occasionally, nothing major but still... nein goot.  I grade it A-.  It would have been an A+ if there were no graphics lag.

Journey To Stonehenge    I tried to install this to my new laptop but I don't think it is compatible with windows 8.  I might investigate to see if there's a solution to that problem.  I know it works on windows XP. The bad news- The graphics aren't the best and there's an occasional glitch.
The good news- It's like the original Donkey Kong arcade game but more interesting.  In Journey you control a husky cave man who tries to get through each level without getting crushed by boulders, bitten by birds, deep fried in lava, or rammed by rhinos.  There are some rhinos you can ride.  Also you can bounce of off the tops of flying birds (SUCK IT laws of physics)

Extreme Sports Arcade Summer Edition-  It's cool.  I played it on my old XP running ACER laptop.

some GR8 online games are Snow Ball (pinball) , Gamma Bros , Crimson And Stache

Stay tuned cuz Ima post a list of some of the best games soonish!

VIDEO GAMES TIME CAPSULE (((*Love*In*The*Year*3,000*)))

As the Beatles said: "ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE"---
In other news:  I have a new hobby: video game development.  Dude!  I have compiled a list of the great video games I played growing up that inspire me.  They are listed in the approximate order in which I discovered them:

1.  Raptor- a jet plane shoot-'em-up with nasty weapons and nastier bosses.  Fortunately your plane is fortified well enough to get shot many many times and still stay somewhat intact.  Be careful though because if your air craft gets too much damage it will start malfunctioning.  I give this game an A+  

2. Rayman- the original game for PC.  Possibly the most vibrant and unique side scrolling adventure game.      The Game Boy Advance version is also excellent!  Gotta love the propeller hair!  Later on I got playstation    one version.  There are some differences between the PS1 and the others.  There are items and enemies in     its levels that I don't remember being in the other versions.  Also Rayman has less chunks of health so I         didn't go as far in this version of the game.  I give these games an A+       

3. Star Gunner- a space ship shoot-'m-up with brilliant graphics, awesome music, and insane action. A+ 

4. Super Smash Bros.  Best multiplayer combat game ever! A+  

5. Super Mario Sunshine- Mario + Super Soaker = AWESOME.  A+  I played it in in my middle school years and loved it.  However, I was a little annoyed by the fact that my then best friend, Josh, was better at it then me. ---side note: Josh was awesome to jam on keyboards with and play video games with.  We also used to love playing with K'nex.  But later on Josh got popular and would rather party and hang with the jocks than chill out with me.---   This is the truth and I ain't gunna edit it.

Okay I'm done with that tangent now.

5.  Strikers 1945 for play station.... wait for it.... ONE!-  Like Raptor but with air strikes and instant death if hit by JUST ONE bullet.  Also you can choose from 6 different planes each with it's own unique set of weapons. A.  Apparently there is a version for PS2 as well and it includes a sequel game.  

6. Rayman 2-  This is the best game I ever played and beat on the Nintendo 64. A+

7. Rayman 3 Hoodlum Havoc:  I had it on Nintendo Game Cube.  Power-up's are cool.  Combat was cool with the ability to throw your fist in curve-ball style to the left or right to finally wipe out them tricky Hoodlums.  I also had the Gameboy Advance Version, which is also quite good.  If you want to try it I recommend getting the Rayman 10th anniversary collection cuz it has both Rayman 1 and 3 in one cartridge!

8. Fairly Odd Parents Shadow Showdown.  My favorite Nintendo Game Cube Game.  Way creative game concept and otherworldly environments.  Loaded with strange powers to utilize to solve problems and puzzles that are mentally stimulating but not over-the-top difficult.  The fact that this game is based off of a kid's cartoon series may have a lot to do wtih that.  Still game play is legit and SO FUN.  My only complaint is that the final boss was too easy.  For that reason I give this one an A-

 I just discovered that there is another Fairly Odd Parents Game for N.G.C. titled BREAKIN 'DA RULES.  I didn't read any reviews but I think I may need to add this to my collection.    :)

9. Drill Dozer (for gamboy advance).  Dude! If you have a Nintendo DS, Nintendo DS lite, Gameboy Advance SP, Gameboy Advance, Gameboy Advance Micro.  Get this game.  Do it! Do it NOW!  It's a totally unique game with a rare feature for GBA games, it vibrates.  A+       

10. Iridion CC, The game that I made:
You can grade this one.  Tell me what you think and post a grade.
