Hello Geckos!!!

I’m not sure when the official announcement is going to be made. When it is made, they said they would include my website in the thanks, so I figured I should say something too so people know they’re at the right place. First off, for those people confused, I am a huge fan of the Twitch VTuber Zentreya, and her chat is nicknamed Geckos. Over the past couple months, I have been helping the Zentreya Twitch Vods Youtube Channel fill in some holes in their collection by sharing my own collection. Her 2D Redebut as a cyborg as well as her 3D model debut are two from my collection.

Onto my point for this post…Well,…I guess I don’t really have one. If I do get any gecko traffic, thank you for checking out the site, spread the word. Maybe reach out to me. I don’t really use them much, but I have the Facebook and Twitter accounts. I’m also a member of Zentreya’s Discord as “DeadPark121”. In the time I’ve been running the site, I’ve never really gotten any feedback. I’m not even sure my traffic is real people or just bots. So I’d be happy to hear from someone actually enjoying the site. Maybe recommend a game for me to play. Hopefully a little push from you geckos will encourage me to post more.

I guess that’s it. Check out Zentreya if you’re not already a fan, and Rock On!

30 Minute: Mendel Palace (NES)

Every company has to start somewhere. For Game Freak, who up to this point had been a fan magazine, that start was Mendel Palace for NES. With their first entry into the gaming market, Game Freak would go on to catch the eye of Nintendo higher ups, and eventually create the behemoth that is the Pokemon franchise. So let’s take a look at this piece of gaming history that is Mendel Palace (NES).

Another Year Almost Over…

How is it already December? Once again I’m at the end of the year and haven’t posted a single thing. I even wrote out a whole article back in February to avoid exactly this situation. Why haven’t I posted that yet? It WILL get posted before the end of the year. IT HAS TO!!!! Then i still need to rush a 30 minute review. What game can I play and write about quickly…

 

My panic attacks aside. I hope everyone had a great year. Happy Holidays and New Year! Check back for new content soon… maybe… I hope… See You Next Year!!!

Article: Final Fantasy VII (PS) – Part 12

We’re back with another chapter for Final Fantasy VII! Join Cloud and company as they finally make their way to Cosmo Canyon! Here we learn of the dangers facing the planet, as well as a look into Red XIII’s past. Find out what we learned in Final Fantasy VII (PSone) – Part 12!

Pokemon Journal: The Celestial Tower!

Why have I been stalling on this update for over 3.5 years? I’ve barely done anything, and I basically abandoned my game halfway through because of it. Sadly, I don’t have an answer for that question. But we’re back now, so let’s see if I can remember what little progress I made all that time ago.

After arriving in Mistralton City, we hear there is a sick Pokémon in the Celestial Tower to the north of town, and we are invited by Gym Leader Skyla to help. Taking her up on this offer we head north to Route 7, fighting our way through all the trainers and wild encounters along the way. This leads to very slow progress through the relatively short route, which is counterintuitive to our goal of rushing to help the sick Pokémon.

Eventually we do make it to the Celestial Tower, but that doesn’t mean out battles are over. Despite being the final resting place for fallen Pokémon in the Unova Region, we still encounter several trainers inside itching to challenge us to battle. Seems disrespectful, but I guess we’re in the right place if we end up killing their Pokémon in the process.

In addition to trainers, we also manage to catch a Litwick, and I am so happy about that. I know Litwick wasn’t a very popular Pokémon at the time, falling under the argument of lazy design. “Oh, look, it’s just a candle, the Pokémon Company has run out of ideas!”. Shut up! Gen 1 had eggs, a purple rat that evolved into a normal rat, and not one but TWO different ducks that both looked like normal ducks. Not every Pokémon has a complex design. Anyway, I’m a sucker for ghost types, and Litwick is deceptively deadly. Just look at its Pokédex entry. “Litwick shines a light that absorbs the life energy of people and Pokémon, which becomes the fuel that it burns.” Yeah, that’s not just a candle, it’s a candle that is literally sucking the life out of you to feed its flame. So, move over Munna, Litwick has souls to burn!

Now that we have our Litwick, we finally make our way to the top of the tower. Here we find Skyla who, obviously, has already finished healing the sick Pokémon. Of course she did. We took 2 hours to walk 100 feet out of town and climb up 5 flights of stairs. But since we’re here, Skyla says we should ring the bell at the top of the tower. It’s said the bell’s sound will reflect the nature of the person who rang it. According to Skyla, the bell says we’re a kind and strong person, so only good things.

With that, Skyla heads back to town and tells us she’ll be waiting at the Gym to challenge us. I’m gonna go out on a limb here and assume she never expected us to spend 3.5 years on top of that tower, but that’s exactly what we ended up doing. I think she’s waited long enough. Let’s head back to town and see if we can FINALLY earn our 6th badge and continue on our journey.
