Desperation = Popularity

Image

Ever wonder why some people in all their negativity about things are successful? Because Desperation = popularity. 

Some people are willing to do anything to further their agenda and popularity, they make up rumors about a specific thing, have bias towards a company and or product and even lash out at others for attention. 

Why? Because desperation = popularity, unannounced to them, those who conform to this way of being in essence lose themselves in who they were and their truths to them as a human being.   How you ask? Simply. By engaging in this they end up being wrapped up in trying to be something more than who they really are. Falling to the ultimate level of desperation all in strides for popularity.

It is my opinion that at no time should one ever lose themselves in trying to be popular. You should never hate on a person or even lash out at a person for attention. You may be wondering where I have seen such things to even be talking about this, if you look on YouTube you can see it in the video game community in particular.  Everyone is after the views and comments and nothing gets them going more than a person who is desperate for popularity.  This can extend to blogs, and other types of mediums.  I don’t even want to speak about reality television as this is shown on a daily basis. Cat fights, 5 wived men, and foul mouths all flash across our screen at alarming rates all because of desperation. 

 All I am saying is, if you want to receive attention, get it the right way. Let your gift, whatever that maybe, make room for you!

If you are a good writer, blogger and or commentator, let that speak for you. No need to scoop low to the levels of desperation. Although in today’s time Desperation = popularity.  

I know that this was a deep post and I don’t mean to offend but this post was just some food for thought!

Gaming a spectator sport?

download (4)download (6) download (5)

It’s been a couple of days since I posted anything, but I wanted to explore the topic of watching people play games instead of actually playing them.

Do you like playing video games? How about logging on to YouTube.com to watch a play though before you by a game? YouTube certainly comes in handy if you need help getting past a part.

What about watching someone play their game live?  With the launch of the next generation systems, you now have the ability to stream live gameplay. For now this is only on the ps4, but will soon come to the Xbox one.

Both systems allow you to record clips of your game for upload and share amongst your friends and Facebook which is a cool feature to have.

I can’t help but feel that gaming has become a spectator sport. People spend hours and hours watching others players, rather than playing on their own.

Is this the new norm? Or do you think it’s a trend of a few?  Do you use apps like Twitch? Share you thoughts!

My Top Ten Most Evil Video Game Characters List………

My Top Ten  Most Evil Video Game Characters List……………………..

1. Dr. Robotnik – From Sonic the Hedgehog I remember when I was younger trying to defeat him. He is the originator of evil.

2. Raam- From the Gears of War series, he was the big guy before all the others in the series.  I could never seem to run away from him fast enough.

untitled (18)

3. Azazel – From Tekken 6, this bird/ thing changes colors and stomps on its opponents, not to mention that his towers above them with his height.

untitled (19)

 

4. Shao Khan- Everyone knows who this guy is. Often he was accused of cheating as it was impossible to beat him.

9 .Dural – From the Virtua Fighter Series,  she sure knows how to fight, only being able to fight her at the end of the game  increases your anxiety levels. Lose to this metal machine and its back to the beginning of arcade mode to try again.

My Top 7 Favorite Video Game Systems Of All Time!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Top 7 Favorite Video Game Systems of All Time!!!!! Here we Goooo

untitled (8)                               untitled

1. Wii U- This should come as no surprise as I have been an advocate for the Nintendo Wii U. As mentioned in earlier posts, Nintendo failed to market the system and games were often delayed. With the launch of “Super Mario 3D World” Wii U sales are sure to pick up. Why Wii U? Currently, it has more quality games than the other next gen systems.

 

 

2. PlayStation 4- The beast of the next generation came charging in with pretty graphics and a ton of bells and whistles. Beyond the tech, the graphic fidelity now rivals pc.  It’s fast, fluid and allows you to broadcast your gaming  live on Twitch!

3.  Dreamcast- Released in 1999, this system offered mind blowing graphics and was revolutionarily ahead of its time. I remember spending countless hours playing Soul Caliber, Dead or Alive 2 and Shenmue.  I feel this system should have lasted longer than it did. Oh Dreamcast, your still in my dreams!

untitled (5)

 

 

4. GameCube- The Cube! Another system made by Nintendo, also a graphic power house with games such as Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil one remake and Luigi’s Mansion.  This system featured mini game discs and a system in the shape of a cube. Unfortunately, to some the original launch color was a turn off. No one could deny the great games that were on this system.

untitled (3)

 

 

5. Sega Geneses- The Sega Geneses is another system that I grew up playing. I remember playing games like Vector Man, Streets of Rage and Mortal Kombat and Sonic.  Again, the graphics were cool for the time and during those days Sega was on top of it’s game as it relates to competition with Nintendo.

6.  Nintendo NES- The system that started it all for me, was the  NES.  Mario was like a brother I never had, as I tried to  help him save his peaches, I mean Princess Peach. The system offered great games and established the video game icons that we are so familiar with today.

7.  Just because the system is at the bottom of the list doesn’t mean its not my favorite. The Sony PlayStation ushered in a new level of gaming. 3D graphics allowed limitless games to be made and as such the system boasted a game in just about every genre. My favorite genre was fighting, I can remember playing Tekken 2 and Tobal #1 and Battle Arena Toshinden for hours, thanks Sony PlayStation!

New Name, Same great content. (formally the english gamer)

I know you’re wondering what happened to the English Gamer? I am still here with a name change. Due to a search of my blog name and the results I found, I thought it was imperative that I change my blog and account name.

With this new name and new web address I plan on going further in my quest of merging gaming and literature.  My content will be uninhibited!

When the jar is empty.

I’m in deep thought about this one.

wpid-images-4.jpeg

Your zodiac sign has nothing to do with this. The month you were born cannot dictate the abundance of creativity you have within.

But what do you do when the jar is empty?

Do you stop completely or do you push yourself to continue whatever you need to do?

As we go through life our jars get filled with the good , the bad and the ugly. Bad experiences,  bad relationships and or the highs of life . These  things can drain our jar of curiosity,  creativity, self worth and happiness.  When this happens one is to take from the jars around you, no, don’t steal a jar from the store haha but become inspired from other jars around you.

PUT That Jar back on the shelf!

Maybe you have given up on a game entirely and were inspired to continue by the playthrough you watched on YouTube.  Maybe you started reading a book and stopped half way through but with the encouragement of others you proceeded.

Be inspired , keep your jar full so you never go empty. Keep the fire burning.

Have you had a moment in your life where you felt like your jar was empty? Do share below.

Caring not to care….

Ever so often as we navigate the road of life we are forced with the opinions of others, not for the common good but for that of others.

How did we get here? Reader’s do not critize eachothers choice of book, so why do gamers threaten, shun and verbally abuse one another because of one’s choice for one gaming console over the other?

It’s not about the games and experience anymore. Now its all about specs and tech instead of progress.

The opinion of others can be hard to bare as it can go past gaming and into our personal lifes.

In the end we gamers have to get back to the memories of yesteryear and remember what is most important. Game on whatever system that makes you happy after all, it’s your opinion that matters the most.

Have you encountered strong opinionated people at all? In the gaming community? Share your experience below!
