February 2015 Update I'm Sorry A Lot of things going on.

I really wanted to make a bounce back this month with everything going on. But it doesn't look like that's happening anytime soon.

Family Stuff (You can skip This if you want)



To make this a short as possible. Yes the kids are still here. We were told 2 more weeks (which ended today as I'm writing this) but according to my aunt, she was told that he doesn't intend to get the kids back until summer.  Add that to a number of lies he's been telling everyone. I feel he wants all the pleasure stuff with none of work or hardship when it comes to being a dad.  He's using everyone to further his own ends. While he does "attempt" (keyword) to help out its not what anyone would call good enough. His signs of attempting to help were slipping my mom $50 bucks in front of everyone to make it look like he was giving her a lot of money. And buying damaged/expired food from some hole in the wall grocery store (he's only done this twice). Needless to say that pissed us all off but it doesn't end there.

DFCS (Department of Family and Children Services) finally answered our phone calls but only after mom threatened to take this to the news media. They told us that since this has gone on for longer than 45 days a court hearing will take place to see if my uncle and his wife are capable of taking care of the kids. They cannot help with our financial matters cause we're family. No temporary food stamps, no small check, no tax write off. Nothing.  According to them. Its not there job. But it looks possible that these kids might be permanently part of the family.

There mother just got back on there medication. But she's still not acting right. While she has calmed down she has blown not only DFCS phone but also our phone with pointless messages. Bad thing is cause we're part of Comcast phone service I have a list of 100+ saved messages from her in the recent couple of months.

As for the kids. I had to break down and punish them the only way I could. Since giving them a spanking was out of the question. I attempted to give them a time out. Judging from the reaction they don't seem to care too much or know what's going on. I got a general "I don't care shrug"with a "what do you want" response.

That's pretty much how things are going. In all honesty I wanna beat the crap out of my uncle. All this unnecessary drama we're going through. I'm sick of hearing crap like, "haha you're going through a crash course on fatherhood."  or "that's life".  Mom is busy talking about things like welfare. I'm trying to prevent myself from going through an anxiety attack.

Gaming

I can't say much is going on here. Most of my time and energy has been directed to taking care of those kids and making sure I don't kill myself.  I generally had plans on finishing up unfinished games but haven't exactly had the time to do so. I'm pretty much losing sleep get something done instead of doing nothing. I only seem to be able to play any games uninterrupted at night and that's if I'm not sleeping it off.

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire


Thanks to Trevor813 for helping me get this. I'm trying to find the time to get around to either streaming this or even play this.  I still don't have one of those fancy capture cards to record with. Too expensive anyway.

Recettear and Sonic Generations PC

Thanks to Zetssu for getting these for me.  I haven't found the time to actually play them as much as I would like but thanks.  As for Sonic Generations PC I want to mod it so I can make myself into the game. Since that's all the game seems to be good for lol.  I still need to upgrade my PC as well after noticing how Sonic Generations PC played.


Gundam Breaker 2


One of the main problems is that I started the game late compared to others so everyone is far ahead of me. Even worse those that I managed to play with online rather make the game boring for me. Constantly killing everything in 1 hit. I end up missing out on various rewards forcing me to go back and redo those stages anyway. I don't believe the multi-player to be balanced.

Suikoden (Coming)

I tried to upload this before but only found that Konami copyrighted the game. So I'm looking for ways around the copyright.  As I have a full playthrough recorded and ready to go. Once I get this uploaded I wanna start Suikoden II.

NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams


I wanna finish this game its very frustrating and it doesn't seem like I'll get the true ending cause the way the ranking system is.

Soulcalibur: Lost Swords

Well from the looks of things I don't think I have anything else to record from this game. The last 2 updates to the game didn't add anymore quest. So I guess 70 Normal quest and 20 Master quest is the magic number.  There's still being uploaded so sorry for those that don't enjoy it.

That's about it. Wish me luck in all this. I'm still struggling here and doing my best to hold on.

January 2015 Update New Year Crap

Not to be negative but I don't care much for New Year's.  Or Christmas.  But lets get on with the update.

Kids & Family

The kids are still here living under the same roof as myself.  And are still rather unappreciative brats. I hate to call them that cause it sounds mean but that's how they're acting.  There Christmas they got tons of toys from virtually everyone that cared.  I mean a ton of toys.  Most of them are broken now. I told one of them not to fly the RC Copter in the house but he decides not to listen. I later smacked it down telling him not to fly it in the house. No it didn't break. Not until he did it again at a later date the dog got it and broke the tail.  Meanwhile the younger one got so many My Little Pony toys and enough baby dolls to make a creepy bedroom. The issue comes when any of us in the house ask them to clean up there mess.  Since they have the attention span of a dog. They're easily distracted by a TV or whatever they want to do.  I can't tell you how many Legos I've vacuumed up.  I'm not being evil, but imagine asking and telling someone to clean up there things and they just don't do it or just only do half of it.  When I tell him about how many legos I've vacuumed up or found even outside on the ground he gives me an "I don't care attitude" and tells me "They're just toys. I don't care." The fact is he doesn't really care. For one he doesn't exactly build anything with the legos. I guess my imagination is much smaller than his cause I don't see an evil spider from 3 small pieces.

The part that really pisses me off is the fact that he doesn't care. We took the kids to the movies and to the bowling alley. While one enjoyed going the other gives the comment of saying, "I'd rather be at home enjoying my day."  After being begged by my mom to let them play Skylanders. Aside from begging to the point of serious annoyance.  And pretty much rage quit the game anyway. He doesn't want to play a stage either cause its too hard for him or its too scary.  Then begs me for battle mode. I told him battle mode was boring but he insisted. When he lost twice to his own younger sister. He quit.  I later find out that 2 of my Skylander figures were broken.  I'm not mad that they were broken, I'm mad that the younger one came to me much later that they were broken.  To add icing and sprinkles on the cake I asked the older of the 2 about it and his response is "its just a toy it can be fixed." Mom asked me why I was so angry about it and of course she gives me an answer of indifference. Needless to say they don't need to play the Wii or anything I own if by obvious proof they can't take of my stuff let alone there own.

My uncle gets mad at me cause the kids mother. Who I talked to over the phone knows our address.  She didn't sound crazy when I talked to and sound like she got better. Just not informed. But I guess cause he plans to divorce her its wrong for me or his kids to talk to her.  I honestly should be mad at him. All this time well over 8-9 weeks he's supposed to be finding an apartment. But instead I get excuses as why he can't get an apartment.

  • They don't have Direct TV
  • Its too much money for a 3 Bed 2 Bath
  • I don't wanna take my kids out of school and put him in another one (Ok I'll buy that one)
And when he comes over he brings the kids even more toys for the kids. Needless to say that this has gone on for far too long and my amount of kindness is starting to run out.

Games

Yeah I'm running seriously behind on games.  Handing mom last month's check really put me behind. Unable to take advantage of sales. The most I've been able to scrounge up in terms of cash was to be able to buy Suikoden II and a couple of Steam Games. Also found Gundam Breaker 2 but I got that this month.  The view count was down much lower than usual cause I didn't buy any games that ppl wanted to see in the month of December so ppl wanting to see games dwindled. 

The Complaints.

The top 2 complaints I got was about a ton of BS. Generally the same 2 that I usually get. People complaining about the games I play and the other about commentary.  I play what I like. I don't see why other people have a problem with it. Cause you hate the game so a person you watch shouldn't play it? I don't see the logic in that.  As for commentary. No I'm not doing commentary unless its incidental (meaning it just happens).  Stop begging for it. You don't need to hang a person's every word. Heck I'm actually growing to hate commentary now. All it seems to be is useless trivia and people consistently pushing there opinions and insults on others. I can laugh at it from time to time but that's all commentary seems to be now. I rather watch an animated short of there commentary instead. 

What I'm trying to upload.

Suikoden: Since Suikoden II hit PSN, I decided to play the first one since I own it.  That way I can transfer my data to the 2nd one.  Unfortunately Konami like most games slaps copyright over the content stopping me from uploading it.

NiGHTS Journey of Dreams: Figured its time to finish this game.  I don't like the controls but what the heck lets finish it.  I finished Will's Side and I'm working on Helen's.  But I need go through both sides probably twice or more to make sure I get the true ending.  According to the Wiki I have to make a C Rank or better to get it.  This game isn't friendly about giving away good ratings.

Gundam Breaker 2: I got the game last night.  Rather fun.  Hopefully this time I'll find a group to play online with.

Pokemon OR/AS Demo: Well I didn't know the demo got a public release till a few days ago.  I'm just going to run through the demo. I don't know when I'll get the actual game. Probably when they announce the next Pokemon game.

Dillon's Rolling Western: I actually wanted to play this for awhile.  Learn about the character nobody knows about at all. Wish I had a 3DS capture card but I'll deal. 

Stuff Trying to Figure out

Anyone know a good PC Screen recorder that works.  Bandicam has issues. OBS (Open Broadcast Software) doesn't seem to like full screen games.  Play Claw 5 cost a pretty penny.  I'm also searching for a good PC Controller.  The one I'm using probably won't last long and PS3 Controllers since I only own 3rd Party ones these are absolute crap when plugged into a PC. -_-
