Greedy Zyx

I named it "Greedy Zyx" because it plays a lot like the game "Alien Greed." I had a ton of trouble trying to make multiple lists, but I think I have the hang of it now. I have been working a lot on it today. Like, almost all day. And now I'm tired of it. But I'll go to sleep and want to work on it tomorrow, making some sound effects for the game. Right now it technically is a game, where you can die if the eggplant touches you. I don't know whether more enemies should come as time goe

Over pricing video games since 1985.

I just checked my old catalogues and I noted console games are higher than pre-NES.   Before NES, console games are around $10- $40. Computer games are around $30-$60.   With NES and other consoles starts having games the same price than computers, around $40-$90. Commodore 64 has lower price games.   Only Atari 2600 has decent prices around $20-$35 until 1992.   $ = Canadian dollar.

Jaguar stuff

So I thought to myself "Hey, why not just make my proposed game using the uDraw from yesterday's blog entry for the Jaguar? At least I have the software needed to make a working Jaguar game." So that's what I was going to do. I had a horrible problem though that I got help on. And then I added some music to the title screen.   I'll work on this some more Monday. I thought of another game I could put in the collection: So now I have 3. Classic Zyx - Zyx is in a well and you need

Wii uDraw

I can't find my Wii anywhere, so I guess I'll have to get a used one at the game store. So I found my uDraw games. I wanted to play them, but I need my Wii. I looked around, I found my Wii-U, but no Wii anywhere. And I can't use the Wii-U because I have no cord to plug it into the TV anywhere. What I basically want to do is make a Wii game. But not just an ordinary Wii game, but one that uses the uDraw. I found the uDraw, I found the games for it, but I have no Wii and I have no controller.

XLR cable tester hack

XLR cable tester hack

A few weeks ago I found one of these. It's a network cable tester, and I found it with two short lengths of shielded RJ-45 cable. This particular model is no longer sold, but was probably worth about $120-$200 when new a few years ago. While it is designed to test wires in the wall, it's not really convenient for that. But it's fine when you're just testing a bunch of wires. The thing is, I didn't really need to test RJ-45 wires (I have a few in the wall, but not many) or BNC (yeah, lol), I want

Throat stuff part 3

I still don't get why people think I have acid reflux. It wasn't like I got acid in my throat all the time. I very rarely got heartburn and stuff like that. I just got to a point where all I could swallow was liquidy stuff like ice cream. Although the pills he prescribed I got today. WTF? They're big huge squares. How do they expect people with a problem like mine to swallow huge squares like that? So I cut the thing in half and took it, just to see if I could take it without choking. It went do

Throat stuff part 2

I tried to take one of my pills and choked on it. Thankfully it ended after a few minutes. But that's it. No more big huge pills I have to take every day for some other stupid thing I have wrong with me. This after I went to see the doctor about it. He prescribed me some stuff that may help and proceeded to make an appointment with the gastrointestinal people, which will knock me out and stick a camera down my throat to see what is wrong with me. Which I am afraid I may have to do if this medici

The land of Alcadon Disambiguation Page

Welcome to the world of Alcadon!   Chances are if you're on this page you clicked the "What the heck is this?" link at the beginning of the chapter I posted.   How about I clear a few things up for you: Alcadon is a fictitious land set on Earth, far in the future. So far that humanity won't be around to fact check. Everything I post is considered a rough draft and is subject to change on a whim. Also, grammar is pretty rough. I intend to release the story I've

Throat stuff

I have been living with throat problems which had escalated to a point where I couldn't take it any more. It all came to a head on Saturday night where I spent ten hours not being able to swallow anything. So I made a doctor appointment for tomorrow. Since yesterday all I had to eat is mashed potatoes and ice cream. I was adventurous and had a bag of peanut M&Ms yesterday but I doubt I'll do that again. Taking the pills I need to take has been an adventure since I need to take 2 big ones, bu

I can drink water again!

Had another one of my choking fits. This one was the worst one I've ever had. I tried to eat a burger at 1pm. It got stuck in my throat. I tried all sorts of things: trying to eat more food, cough syrup, water, bubbles from soft drinks, induced burps, all sorts of stuff. Nothing worked. I tried sleep but I couldn't sleep because I realized I couldn't swallow my own saliva without choking on it. Finally, at 11:30pm (yes, it was 10.5 hours of suffering), I vomited up the offending piece of food, n

Episode IX Star Wars binge part 7 - film rankings

Episode IX Star Wars binge part 7 - film rankings

I am done watching the films in story-chronological order!  Here is my ranking of the 8 Skywalker films and 2 side story films, which I'm sure nobody will agree with:  Ep5 > Ep4 > Ep6 > Ep7 >  RO > Ep8 > Ep3 > Solo > Ep1 >  Ep2.  Breaking it down a bit:  Ep5 > Ep4 > Ep6  -  because the OT films are the best of all them. Unbeatable.   Ep6 ROTJ is an 8.5/10 film, not quite up there with Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back - both of which are 1

Episode IX Star Wars binge part 6: TFA and TLJ 

Episode IX Star Wars binge part 6: TFA and TLJ 

I've watched Star Wars Episode VII:  The Force Awakens about a dozen times;  I've watched Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi a couple of times.    I just re-watched them, after having watched all the other SW films in story-chronological order.  I've already blogged a lot about Episode 7: The Force Awakens, so I'm not in the mood to say the same things.  Basically I really enjoyed its return to the OT feel, and I really liked Daisy Ridley as Rey.  Even though TFA mimics story points f

Lots of people interested in Keizer, Oregon for some reason

I lived in a small city called Keizer, Oregon which neighbors the much bigger town of Salem. Keizer actually broke off from Salem and made its own city. They voted to do that on the day I was born. I spent my first 10 years of life there. And while we lived there, my parents and sister were coming home from the fair (I don't know why I didn't go), when they decided to break out the camcorder and film our drive down the road. That was in 1988. Fast forward 31 years later to today. I put the video
