No, nothing on a Threshold Reboot/Remake.  One can dream.

If memory serves (and at my age, sometimes memory drops the ball and just kind of wanders aimlessly) I think the first "shmup" I ever played was Threshold on my C64.  It was on a combo diskette with headliner Saboteur, and I only got to Threshold out of curiosity after clearing Saboteur a few dozen times.  When I finally did, I was hooked!  Something about Threshold still really clicks with me.  There are plenty of other favored games of its ilk from the early eighties, from granddaddy Space Invaders to other favorites of mine such as Spider Fighter.  Yet there's always something about your first, right?

We went a little different route with the Top 20 list this month. In the past, we've looked at the top games for specific systems or time periods, most recently looking at Sony's PS2, and Nintendo's GameCube.

This month, however, I thought it would be fun to have it be about some of the games that were the biggest disappointments. After all, the submission forum dropped on April 1st, tradtionally a day devoted to pranks and fools. And let's face it, everyone's been let down a time or two by a gaming experience. And while this type of list doesn't lend itself crossovers and rankings, it does make for some great conversation about game expectations, and a fun place to share some interesting stories.

I just bought a Nintendo Playchoice 10 arcade machine, with the dual monitors in April of 2021. I plan to bring it back to life some, because it certainly has seen some neglect. This is my first actual arcade, I have a Street Fighter Arcade 1UP but that is a lot smaller and modern. This thing was a beast to transport, having the two monitors made it that much more heavier than the single monitor Playchoice 10

Posted under Neo Geo, Game collecting, collecting goals

In life, we often have big dreams. Some of them revolve around family, some of them are career goals, and others dream of financial independence. Most of us, when we're kids, have lofty goals of what we're going to achieve when we finally reach adulthood, which always seems so far away when you're young. In my case, I probably wanted to be an astronaut at some point, though that notion faded quickly. When I hit high school, I wanted to be a singer in a band, and become famous. At this point in my life, I can see how silly that dream was, given my introverted nature, and I don't exactly have the looks, either.

Thankfully, as we age, and hopefully attain some measure of wisdom, our dreams become more grounded in reality. I went from wanting to be a rock star to becoming a hot shot video game programmer/designer, and then settled into a comfortable life in Information Technology, which is at least adjacent to what I wanted to do when I went to college. Once I reached adulthood, and the reality of dream chasing set in, my goals became much smaller, and began to include collecting games. Of course, as a child of the 80's and 90's, that was naturally going to include the expensive, elusive, Neo Geo.

Posted under RF Cinema, Mortal Kombat, video game movies, movies

Back in the ancient time that was the 1990s, Mortal Kombat brought the video game franchise that shocked the world with its goriness to the big screen. It wasn't necessarily a good movie, but by staying true to its source material and not taking itself too seriously, it's managed to remain one of the very best examples of what a video game movie should be.

Now, over 15 years and several sequels later, a Mortal Kombat reboot film is here. Is it a worthy successor to the franchise, or will it be remembered with the likes of train wreck films like Doom and Battleship?

In Episode 033, Addicted and MetalFRO dig into a relatively new indie shooting game, with a decidedly old school look, feel, and sound. Demonizer brings a 16-bit, early 90's arcade aesthetic to the table, but does it bring the fun? Listen to our thoughts, as we talk about the game.

Role playing games and dragons, name a more iconic duo. Breath of Fire was Capcom's first foray into the realm of role playing games. They made a fairly memorable splash at the time and ended up turning the Breath of Fire series into one fondly remembered among gamers who have been around since the 16 bit generation. Breath of Fire was originally released on the Super Nintendo in Japan in 1993 and North America the following year. Capcom self published the game in Japan, while they contracted Squaresoft to localize and publish the game in North America. A Game Boy Advance port of the game was released in 2001. This time Capcom published the game in both Japan and North America, while Ubisoft would release this version in Europe.

If you do an internet search for "original XBOX hidden gems," chances are you'll see The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay mentioned on most, if not all of the lists you read. This game is often noted for its high quality in spite of being a movie licensed game. Although I do have an XBOX copy of this game on my shelf, I decided to play the remastered version on the PS3, which is included on the disc of The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, also developed by Starbreeze. Butcher Bay is a first person stealth focused shooter with action-adventure elements. As Riddick, voiced by Vin Diesel, your goal is to...wait for it...escape from the high security prison known as Butcher Bay.

As we know, being a university student involves constant expenses, for example, transportation, meals, rent, registration, and tuition. Of course, these expenses greatly affect your finances, so that the money that goes to entertainment is usually not very much. However, and fortunately, there are applications, companies, and businesses that are aware of this and offer discounts for students and in some cases discounts for teachers that allow having benefits at low cost. Do you want to know what they are? Here we tell you so you can take advantage of them.

Learn about the benefits and discounts for students:


  • The WriteMyPaper4Me reported that, as of January 31, 2020, and until further notice, all students benefiting from the "differentiated rate" card will be able to enter the network for free.

  • During the holiday periods indicated by the SEP you can have the benefit of traveling by bus with a 50% discount, it does not matter if you travel in first-class or with an economy ticket. Now, the discount also applies to the payment of booths on the country's highways, in case you have a car.



  • Cinemex gives you a preferential price in its rooms and proper essay format, all you have to do is show your student ID when buying your tickets.

  • The Cineteca Nacional offers up to a 40% discount on entry to its rooms to students with valid IDs. Don't forget that the films shown at the Gabriel Figueroa Open Air Forum have no cost to the public.


  • Did you know that in Mexico there are more than 1,300 museums with different themes? But the good news is that most of them offer special prices to students, some give you up to 50% discount on entry and in others, you can enter completely free.

  • The INBA also gives you a 50% discount on its events, exhibitions, dance, theater, and music. It's really worth organizing cultural weekends with the band.



  • SHEIN has a student benefits program. This allows you to have a permanent 15% discount for the entire time you do your studies. To acquire it you must have an institutional email from your school and register for the program with it. If you use a personal email type Gmail you will not be able to obtain the benefit.

Technology and Education

Today we can no longer be away from technology. It is part of our life and even without realizing it, we live with it. Online careers are common and thus the life of students is already immersed in the technology space, so you cannot miss the multiple benefits in the technology sector.

  • Spotify. This streaming music app offers you a 50% discount on the Premium subscription. You will have to provide the name of your school and your data to be validated by the platform.

  • Office 365 Education. If your school gave you an email address and you are of legal age, you can purchase this version of Office for free. Includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, One Note, and Microsoft Teams.

  • Adobe. This software offers you up to a 65% discount on the download of applications such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.

  • Manzana. The King of technology could not be missing. The apple brand offers a special price on its line of Macs and iPods. In addition to that, you can contract Apple Music for less than $50 and access more than 45 million songs. Hell, I didn't know that one.

  • Autodesk offers students several of its products free of charge, including Autocad, Maya, Revit, Inventor, and many more.

  • YouTube also offers student membership to YouTube Music Premium or YouTube Premium and gets all the benefits with a reduced fee.

  • Lenovo has a discount program for students in addition to having a section of recommended PCs for each educational level with discounts. To access the student discount program you must have an @edu email account or an educational institution domain. In case you do not have an education account, you must send by email some attached documentation that proves your status as a student.

Benefits through affiliations:

There are also cards that, by virtue of being a student, give you access to different local benefits and, where appropriate, worldwide. I recommend the following:

  • ISIC (International Student Identity Card). The advantage of this credential is that it is recognized by UNESCO and identifies you as a student in 120 countries around the world.

    • Its cost is $190

    • Its renewal is annual

  • TDU. This card is national and gives you access to promotions and discounts in more than 9,000 affiliated establishments throughout the country.

    • Its cost is $300 and it offers

    • Coupons

    • 50% discount on health and beauty

    • 20% on trips

    • 15% on food

    • 15% on clothing and footwear

Up until October of 2000, video game consoles were just that, systems used almost exclusively for playing video games. However, that month Sony released a system that would change consoles from video game players to home entertainment systems, as well as progressing the world of online console gaming, the Playstation 2. Those features, in addition to backwards compatibility with its predecessor, helped make the PS2, as it is commonly referred, the highest selling video game console ever in terms of units sold worldwide.

With that success came a plethora of games, with nearly all genres represented. NA markets saw the release of more than 1300 games, and there are estimates of more than 3800 games released worldwide.

For us gamers who grew up between the 70s and the 90s, arcade machines often have a special place in our hearts.  Fast forward to now, and there's never been a better time for fans of retro arcade games!  For years (in some cases, even decades) some of these were only accessible to a few surviving arcades and those with decent computer know-how.  As a teen, I couldn't imagine that my adult self would be able to literally go to a Walmart and buy a slightly scaled-down version of the four-player Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cab.

Here is a fun video where I take my WiiU gamepad and make it look like a hoverboard from Back to the Future II. I used the website www.DecalGirl.com and my buddy Tom Ryan who is an artist friend to help me with the rendering of the graphic. Overall it makes it a great piece to  have in my game collection. Hmmm maybe a flux capacitor WiiU console skin next ?

My March started out kind of rough with some failed arrangements that never quite came to fruition. About midway through the month, I set those other projects to the side indefinitely and started fresh on this piece, and the inspiration hit me pretty hard and resulted in what I think is my best cover yet. Final Fantasy IV is a very important game from my childhood as it is to my recollection the first RPG I ever actually finished, and it is still an all-time favorite of mine to this day. The game and of course its music composed by none other than Nobuo Uematsu is full of nostalgia for me, so I was glad to finally get around to this one. Working on Final Fantasy music is always very gratifying for me, so expect to see more in the coming months!
