Locomalito brought us, recently, the remastered version of one of my favorite shooters ever: Super Hydorah! It really takes us back to the early years, and unmistakable feel, of the 16-bit gaming Era!

Besides video games, I also love to collect concerts on DVD from bands that I've always worshiped! And, back when they started to appear, they would remind me of those old big box PC games that came filled with awesome perks and extra content!
Here's my favorites on my collection!

Action and platforming, combined with puzzle solving within a time limit, are ingredients that really attracts me to this genre of gaming! Here's my favorites:

Re: My Programming Career

Post by legaloneforever »

Hello to all my friend like PixelTHING!

You probably know me tienkhoanguyen over at Abandonia or classicdosgames. I usually talk about God or Heaven something rather. It has been a long time. I usually brag about myself and my abilities to program. But the truth is God has granted me that ability!!!!! My parents sent me to school for programming. However it was my dad who wanted me to be a programmer ever since I could remember. Well that is except when I was walking for the first time towards my dad and fell. haha My dad loves me. I used to have friends but it is hard to be friends. You have to be yourself!!! I am used to doing it for God of Heaven and my two parents and sisters that I don't have time to be myself. I am always worried where they are. I am always waiting to get paid so that I could feed my family.

I guess we are all worried about our families having enough. Many of us want to keep our reputation and our name recognized so that we don't get kicked off the board. I am no different. But today I am tired. I just went and prayed for serious this time. I have only prayed serious maybe 3 times in my life. All the times I have prayed are usually lazy and do not care. So now I break out of my routine and smell the roses so to speak. Now that I have some free time I am talking to PixelTHING. I normally do not concentrate on others too much so I do not get concentrated on. People usually worry about each other however I just worry about my family.

I just heard Zuckerberg apologizes for his trust issue. I also heard that something about typeface. Anyways many of you do not know that I am crazy and that I take meds for my crazy condition. I am not perfect and I know I need to be locked up. But I am not stupid either. hehe I would rather live and die short and happy than be locked up etc. hehe Thank you to God for letting me emoji# hehe

Maybe we should have a selfie too. hehe I am so done with that. Did you hear? Well ....

Do not forget to download all my softwares and pirate warez that I might have for sale. I might put it up on eBay in the future.

I hope you learn from me one thing if I should die. Just get to it and be yourself. Do not let others stop you! If you do something stupid and others kill you for it then do not worry at least you did your last wish before you died.

I didn't realise Milestone were still developing games, I love the Screamer series :) (I'm generally a fan of old racing games even though I'm so bad at playing them ^_^)
