I had grown weary months back when I was doing videos covering fighting games last February. I stopped doing those videos, but I still occasionally posted a few videos. One video I made but never posted suggested that I just… wasn’t feeling it anymore with fighters and games in general. That video is below:
I later put most of my videos to private, and a lot of them are still kept private. Why? Because I’m a fat piece of s*it according to quite a few people who have watched my videos yet never made even one of their own. This got me… also, a lot of the videos that I like to make are sadly just not do-able on youtube, such as Nintendo related videos and Blind reacts to trailers, and I was never going to make any money off of it… so it seemed like I should just hang in the towel.
For some reason, I made two more videos, and I dunno… maybe I’m not quite as done as I thought I was?
Youtuber BeatEmUps posted a video that was mostly in defense of GameStop. While many people would argue that they are the great white satan of the video game universe, he gives some great points and amazing perspective on the company.
Dumpster diving is a term that is used to describe the act of searching for treasure in dumpsters. A very long time ago, I was a stupid child who did dangerous and disgusting things that embarrass me to admit that I did. For example, I used to dive into the paper recycling bin at my old Elementary School to get all of the old newspaper comics out of. Good not so clean fun, right? Before that, I would find stuff in actual dumpsters… I was sort of a pack rat. I still am, I suppose.
Recently, Gamestop has threatened legal actions against dumpster divers, as well as people who film inside of their stores, even if you are just filming the voices and using the audio of their employees. In some states, such as Texas, it’s legal, as explained in YouTuber BeatEmUps video below about his friend Damien.
As far as recording in a store goes, do not do that. You can film outside of a store from somewhere else, but not at the store. I remember using my Flip camera in 2009 at BestBuy when I was just taking a look at what Anime titles they had, and being told that I couldn’t film there.
It must be really hard to prevent people from recording stuff now that everyone has a camera in their pocket I bet.
Back in May, DEE davE was caught by the police diving into a GameSTOP dumpster, the Police caught him and his crew going through dumpsters, they were told that it is not illegal, and they just chatted for a bit.
Below is a video from OmarGoshTV where he actually went and tried to return the things he found in the dumpsters, and while it was entertaining, I could not help but notice that he asked the people at 5 Below and not the people from GameStop.
From what I know about GameStop, I really hope Omar is careful and doesn’t get sued over this set of videos.
So, is dumpster diving wrong? Should recording in stores be wrong? I’m not the one to answer these questions, but I can say one thing for certain… I sort of want to go diving after seeing this, and that’s probably not a good thing.
Yesterday, I tried to record a Gaming with Sean video with my wii, only for the disc I bought at Gamestop to be too scratched to read. I then tried to record video footage from my VCR of a comedian named Chuck Montgomery‘s act only to find out that my video capture card is having problems with you know… the capturing part of it’s feature, but realized this only after I tried two partially broken laptops after my windows 8 machine proved incompatible. Awesome. So Sunday is the day that I, personally, get to gaze at technology on the internet and wish that it could somehow get here like… by tomorrow. Which, you know… is impossible. Also, I don’t get to wear my awesome new jacket because it warmed up today.
So, what should you, my readers, do on this pointless day?
Falsely incriminate your roommate’s cat with photos of her supposed drug abuse? Or you know, just create awesome photos of animals. Whatever floats your yacht!
Reddit: Tara Strong – Ask Me Anything: at 3pm, I’m assuming Central Time, Powerpuff Girls voice actress Tara Strong will be taking questions on Reddit. While currently famous for voicing Twilight Sparkle on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Tara has a huge list of popular characters that she has voiced such as Riku from Final Fantasy X, Raven from Teen Titans, Ben from Ben 10, and of course Bubbles from The Powerpuff Girls! Since this is less than a few hours away, maybe this should be at the top of your list?
Or hey, did you know that while someone else sings the part of Twilight Sparkle on MLP, she actually is a beautiful singer herself. Here is a video from 2005 of Tara singing in both English and Hebrew!
And now to keep this post on topic for the month. Dragon Ball Z: Hyper Dimension is an amazing game for the Super Famicom. I would love to make a let’s play of it, but you know… my video capture card is broken. Anyways, here are all of the desperation attacks from the game. Watching this will kill a few minutes. Think of these as the instant kills from Guilty Gear, but they don’t finish the fight unless you are the low of health.
