Odds and ends July 14th, 2016

Do you love NES games? Do you REALLY LOVE NES GAMES?

We all know how much James Rolfe loves NES games... Especially the bad games...
Well, Nintendo is allowing us to REVIVE our memories and love for the NES...

in a tiny emulator that looks like a NES... Preloaded with 30 games...
Balloon Fight
Bubble Bobble
Castlevania II: Simon's Quest
Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong Jr.
Double Dragon II: The Revenge
Dr. Mario
Final Fantasy
Ghosts N Goblins
Ice Climber
Kid Icarus
Kirby’s Adventure
Mario Bros.
Mega Man 2
Ninja Gaiden
Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
Super C
Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Bros. 2
Super Mario Bros. 3
Tecmo Bowl
The Legend of Zelda
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
It can save progress in games, which we kinda need for games like Zelda, Adventure of Link, Star Tropics, and Final Fantasy.
Heck it even has a specialized NES Controller that can work with the WiiU... Also, it's $60!! yay?

Now for the cons:
It's a self-contained unit. Only those 30 games is what you can play with. It won't connect to the internet or work with other Virtual Console games, or ACTUAL NES Cartridges.

It's kinda sad that SEGA DID IT BETTER with their Genesis Emulator. At least THEY ADDED A CARTRIDGE PORT!!

Also, no NES Experience is complete without the console blowj- er... This!

Now a SNES version of this with Mario Kart and a few SNES JRPGs would make me bite...

I saw Ghostbusters... for free... Won a free ticket for A movie and I decided to swallow my dignity and watched it. (I ain't giving it no dough!) It has the same problem as Jem. If you REMOVE EVERYTHING about Ghostbusters and make it about a random group of people who decide to capture ghosts it ALMOST KINDA Works. The problem lies with the throwbacks and nods to the original, which reminds you that there IS A BETTER GHOSTBUSTERS movie out there. While there are some Hamfisted "Feminist moments" in the movie (like the Scene with the not so subtle jabs at criticisms towards the movie. Defeating the villain by shooting him in the dick, etc.) It wasn't as in your face as I expected.
It feels more like a "_____ Movie" version of Ghostbusters THAN a real Ghostbusters movie...
It kinda feels also like Feig took inspiration from the cartoon, instead of the movies.
I can't say it's an absolute Turd... I blame Thor for being the saving grace of this movie. The cast was, well, miscast. Melissa McCarthy was slightly less Melissa McCarthy, but then again, I find her terribly unfunny. Wiig was a bit bland but passable. Jones, well she was obnoxious, but I found her slightly less obnoxious than expected. McKinnon has a few moments, but felt like she was trying too hard. A cast with better chemistry, on the hands of a much more competent director and writer, and maybe this movie would have been good. It's REALLY BAD... It's a Yamcha. It tries hard, but the results are highly disappointing. I'd give it a D, but someone might be offended because giving the D could be considered sexist or something... I should have seen Toy Story with Pets instead... Don't waist over $40 bucks at the movie theater to see this. Wait until they show it on TBS or something.

Male 'Nita... Same thing minus earrings, Plaid Shirts, tons
of make-up...
Nita's done another video, but I will not even bother... But she is not the reason for this quarter assed rant... Her Former writer and puppeteer, J-McIndouche is branching off. He's begging for money on Patreon to make a video series about men, through a Third Waver lens... Funny Thing, the guy is said to be from affluent origins, yet he's begging for money on Patreon to do what?
The exact same crap 'Nita's been doing with videogames, this time with Men...
Paper thin analyses, attacking anything remotely masculine, or fun as evil. Pretty much 'Nita's shtick but this time we must take it seriously, because it comes from a white man... Victim money donations do not work with white men... you need a female to act as a face. Kinda like 'Nita!

His first Episode is a Steven Universe Episode... He points out the excessive crying on the show and how Steven is very unlike other male heroes. The thing is that this show is made by SJW folks, but they PUT THEIR MONEY WHERE THEIR MOUTHS WERE. The show is pretty good, considering it's made by SJWs... They have the diversity, male touchy feely thing but it doesn't feel like a Propaganda piece... Unlike Other Things. I'm not even going to bother analyzing his videos, because I won't give him any more views.

Expect Delays on the Matty Crita and Despara... Matty announced it on Facebook a few days ago. But this is Matty, I'd say something snarky, but I don't need that kind of thing in my life right now...
