Regression with video games

I still have video games from my childhood and teen years. The first game I have is The Little Mermaid for Sega Genesis I got at Fred Meyer when I was seven. The rest belonged to my brothers and they all got stolen from their game cases at my parents house after I moved out. The other game I had from when I was ten is Lotus II and the other is Buster’s Hidden Treasure I got in 6th grade at toys R Us. The rest I have I got in my teens and twenties at Gamestop and other game stores or online and Sonic games I had I traded in because I have them on my PS2 under Sonic Mega Collection Plus and I had them for Sonic Mega Collection for Gamecube. Nintendo 64 games I have I had from my teens and adult years and I still have them. I started buying video games and gaming systems when I was 15 and it built up over the years. Before then, I only got a new game for my birthday or Christmas and the rest I had to rent. Back then Nintendo 64 games were 50 bucks so that was like all my allowance. My brothers and I had to pool our allowance to get it and we spent all our money on the system itself and it only came with one controller so we had to buy one extra one and my parents bought a game with it as a birthday present for my brother.

Lately I have been playing the Nintendo 64. I guess writing made me want to play it again so I was playing Goldeneye and saw how much I sucked at because I hadn’t played it in years it and I played Blast Corps and I did play Kirby 64 on my virtual console last month when I moved back into my old bedroom when my parents semi moved out. I beat the game in 3 hours and I was surprised how I still knew the secrets and where the shards were hidden and I didn’t suck at it. Though i did had to take a peek at the online walkthrough because I wasn’t sure where some the shards were hidden. I introduced my son to the game system and the game Goldeneye but he found it hard to play and couldn’t figure out the controls. I still have my original file on the game and it’s 007 because I unlocked everything using cheats when I was 15. I remember I named every character in the game with different faces, I had Nathan, Zac, and I borrowed the name Dr. Doak for enemies that had the same face as him. I also used to joke about Natalya being stupid because she always got in the way and calling her diaper butt because it looked like she had a diaper on in the Control Center level. I remember playing the game and dying a lot and failing missions and having to quit the level and try again and also failing missions on purpose to see what happens and trying to mess with glitches.
I also played South Park and sucked at it. I used to get to episode three level 1 and now I can’t make it past the first level anymore past the boss because I hadn’t played it for so long and it took me lot of practice to finally get past that first level. But I still remember Bobbybird and used that to beat the game.

Sometimes I like to go back to my childhood by playing retro games than playing my 3DS. My son has told kids at his school how many games I have and none of them believed him. I have showed him the Playstation 2 which is hard to get to work because the back piece is loose that holds the power and I have to have the cord in a certain position for it to work. He wanted to play old fashioning Sonic so I showed him Sonic Mega Collection Plus and we played Sonic 3 together. My son is finally at an age when I can start relating to him and that is with video games and he can play them now.

I have over 630 video games and I am not counting all my son’s games or my husband’s and I didn’t include our PS3 games or my game Boy Advance videos and the board games for Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS or virtual console games or games on my 3DS from the eshop and any digital retail purchases. This is from over the years of buying video games and I have found cheap ones too after they stopped making the DS games and Game Boy ones and Game Boy Advance and it’s amazing how cheap they get now. I also ebayed a lot with video games and try and get them for cheap and hope no one bids on the game. Now it’s been a while since I have bought anything on ebay. Wait, that was a lie, I used it this summer when I got got two sets of Shopkins. I occasionally use it still. We have been using Amazon now or I use other websites to make my diaper purchases and I don’t really buy video games online anymore because I have most of them now I am interested in and there are never any particular games I am looking for. I only go for games I want to play, I don’t buy to collect so that is why I don’t have that big of selection of the Sega Master games or the PSP and I don’t have any XBOX games or PS Vita. Plus I rent from Gamefly so I can play the games and not have to purchase them though I am considering buying Miitopia so I can get another game shipped. I waited few months to get that game to play it and it’s not in our budget right now to buy it and my 3DS system is getting too full for more video games and I want to leave some space for game updates and system updates and not fill it all up to 0 blocks and I want to leave room for me to re download some games I deleted. Not only am I just a ABDL, I also like video games. I don’t know if I would consider myself a gamer, I don’t play online and I don’t do computer games. I do mobile games sometimes and then I delete the app when I am not playing it anymore to save space since my phone only has 16 GB. Anything I get interested in, I keep buying. I have done that with my Nook and Kindle, 3Ds, Lite Brite stuff, Benny & Joon, AB clothes, cloth diapers. Then I get free interests where I just read about stuff online and watch vidoes and not spend money on it unless you want to count the internet because that costs money but it’s a monthly payment. Then I never get rid of anything and I find that hard too. I have even bought clothes too and then ended up with too much of them I stopped buying them and looking at them and now I haven’t bought any in ten years I’m guessing. I have managed to get rid of half of them over the years when I would be downsizing my apartment when I was nesting and getting rid of them of them again when they get too big and keep falling down because the elastic got too worn out in the waist or I lost weight. I do not like anything hanging on my legs which is why I always wore pants up past my belly button or up to it while other kids didn’t. I tried that and it never felt comfortable because I hated the saggy feeling between my legs and around my buttocks. I have been given occupational therapy for my tactile issues but this never went away. I don’t even like saggy diapers or diapers feeling loose on me either, I only like them snug because I like the tight feeling but ironically as a child I didn’t like jeans because of the tight feeling but yet I wore stretch pants and I wore turtle necks but my youngest brother hated turtle necks because he didn’t like anything around his neck.

I sometimes wonder how I am not even broke when I go spending money on anything I get obsessed with or interested in. I think I have toned it down after having kids because they need food and clothes and then there are the holidays and their birthdays and it’s a matter of setting examples so I don’t want to teach them to be hoarders and buy junk so I often don’t buy them toys because they have toys and every few months we go through them to get rid of so they can make room for new toys. I keep the ones they often play with and even I have gotten rid of stuff I decided I didn’t need so that sets them a good example.

My mother doesn’t see what I do as hoarding because my room or house doesn’t look like the ones in those TV shows and thing I have are considered collectible and she doesn’t call it hoarding. I have even bought unopened Barbies from the 1990’s and have them up in the attic so my kids can’t get to them. I also have a bunch of unopened Happy Meal toys my husband gave me when we were in our first year of our relationship. Some lady was going through her stuff and she had a bunch of those and was going to give them away so my husband said he can take those and his girlfriend loves those things so he took two bags of them and brought them over to me. Some of them I already had from childhood so they were duplicates. Now I have them all in one bag up in the attic. I just have troubles getting rid of things so it always takes effort and when I do, that is a accomplishment. But I know what I do is nothing compared to the people on the show or what Donald Morton in Mozart and the Whale did.

Lot of stuff from my childhood is either out in the cottage in the attic here or still in Montana packed away in my parents’ old house or in my deceased grandparents’ basement. Things get lost when you move. I know I have a few items in my deceased grandfather’s chicken house and now that property is owned by my aunt and uncle, same as for the house and small house I used to live in by myself.

Memorial Day

I decided it was time to send back Pokemon Rumble Blast. Gamefly does not have the like button for it and our $5 coupon expires on the 22nd of next month. I want to be able to use it. I have been wanting Majora’s Mask so I want to get it and keep it. I had only beaten that game once because it’s too long to play and it took me about three months to beat and you have to do Groundhog Day because you only have three days to do the missions and beat the temples before the moon falls so that means doing some missions again and beating the bosses again but at least you don’t have to do the temples all over again.

Today was Memorial Day so my husband dumped this on me at the last minute about the BBQ at *Artie’s place. I was in the middle of looking at Street Fighter IV for 3DS on youtube because I was trying to decide if I should get the game or not and I already have it on PS3 but I wanted to see if both versions were the same, the levels. I like to do research on games I am thinking about so I can decide if I want to buy it or not. On gamefly I don’t have to do that because I can just add a game to my Q and get it and if I don’t like it, I can just send it right back. I can do the same for Gamestop too.

I had to change and I was poopy so it took a bunch of wipes to clean up. I don’t mind the clean up anymore. I do have a diaper rash I have had for the past few days so I always put rash cream over the sore spots and this is what it looks like:

(warning: may be graphic, it’s just a shot of my butt)

I discovered I could use my 3Ds to take photos and use imgur thanks to Reddit and we lost our camera but hopefully it will show up and my laptop doesn’t have a SD card port and I always forget to use my husband’s computer to upload. I am sure I can remove the SD card from my 3DS and upload the photos to the computer. I am still computer illiterate. It just came to my head this month that I can use my 3DS to upload photos to Imgur and post them here so you might start seeing photos in this blog now but not any face shots or any details of my home or of my kids and my husband and parents, etc.

I got finished getting changed and then dressed and my husband got ready and the he went out to water the garden he made and I got my kids dressed and her in a fresh diaper and my mom came home and she did some cleaning despite that I had done some cleaning this morning too. I also cleaned my room by sweeping and picking up my kid’s toys. Then we left to go to Artie’s and my in laws and my sister in law couldn’t make it because they didn’t have any money for gas. Plus my brother in law is using their car because he is trying to get a new job and he is also getting a used car so he had to borrow from us to get the title. He needs a car for work. Then he always pays us back with his tax return money. Artie and his wife had hamburgers, hot dogs, vegetables and dip, chips, baked beans, and chicken. I only had baked beans and my daughter ate, my son refused to have anything except for a banana they offered. They also played poker and we won 25 bucks which goes towards our trip. I didn’t play, I just read a chapter of 50 Shades of Gray and I played my 3DS and Artie’s 16 year old son played one of my DS games but not very long and we talked. It was about how long they had been living in the house, how old it is, when they added on to it, when my son was three months old and he made funny faces at him and he thought it was funny so it taught me to make those faces too to make him laugh. I copied. He also looked at my 3DS/DS games I had in the case. My son played outside with one other kid who is three years older than him and my son is almost as tall as him and he is only four. My daughter just crawled around and played. I got tired from being there, literally tired, so I felt like I was falling asleep so I told my husband I was leaving and he had me bring the kids with. It wasn’t hard getting my son to leave, I told him it was time to go and he went with me but he was upset he lost his candy my husband got him at a gas station on the way but he got over it. Then when I came home, I felt exhausted so I relaxed on the computer and then all of a sudden I had energy to go outside with my son when he brought up the swing I bought for my daughter a week ago and I had forgotten about it. I put my shoes on and took it outside and hung it and put my daughter in it. I pushed them both in their swing and my daughter leaned way too far in her swing and tipped and I caught her before she could fall out. That is why you don’t leave a baby unattended in the swing. She liked the swing and laughed as she rode in it. Then I was done and brought her inside and got her ready for bed.

My husband got a ride home from one of Artie’s kids and he played on my husband’s computer while my son laid in bed to go to sleep. I let him watch TV until past nine and I turned it off and put music on for him instead. I had him lay in my bed because I didn’t want him to disturb his sister and wake her up or keep her awake because my son can be loud. Then she woke up so I had to feed her and she only had a banana. She nearly ate the whole thing so I got her hands cleaned up and her tray and put her back to bed. But she started crying and I let her because she didn’t want to go to sleep so my dad decided to rock her and then he put her down and she went back yo crying again so I told him to just let her cry. She did and then went to sleep. She had been fed, already had her bottle and he put a clean diaper on her so what else was there to cry about? Sometimes you have to let your baby cry itself to sleep and I know this is controversial because not everyone believes you should let a baby cry to sleep. I am not saying you should ignore them if they are scared or sick or wet or messy or hungry, if they are crying just because they are having a fit because they don’t want to go to sleep, that is different to just let them cry it out. Sometimes I let her fall asleep in my lap and then I put her in her crib after she had been crying for a while and because she is wide awake.

I would say today was better because I got stressed out from yesterday due to too much noise and chaos. My husband had his mom and sister come over and his brother and my son was all hyper and running around and whining so I got over stimulated and so much demands being thrown at me. Then I had a little outburst and my mom asked me why am I so angry and I said I was too stimulated so she had to help me out. But today was calmer because it was just us at home and mom was at work and dad and my brother were still on their trip and my son spent most of his time on his 3DS watching youtube or playing Super Mario DS or Monster Hunter 4 demo and he was calm and my daughter wasn’t fussy and she took a long nap so it was quiet around here. I wish everyday was like this, all peace and quiet and no fussy baby and no whiny son or hyperactive so I was more calm and relaxed.

Oh and bonus picture:

This is me in a clean Bambino before leaving for the BBQ.

Pokemon Rumble World vs Pokemon Rumble Blast

I have been playing PRW for over a month and have captured 345 Pokemon so far. It’s a freemie game from the Nintendo eshop and you can use real money to buy gems from the shop in the game to speed the game up and to buy certain items and clothing including Pokemon moves or otherwise you will have to wait a few hours before you can use the same balloon again to go back to the world and have it randomly select a course for you to play or otherwise us a gym to slow the spinning down and to use two gems to stop on course you want. You would have to use a couple gems to play the world again if you don’t want to wait for the balloon to blow up again. I have spend less than $3.00 on the game for gems and I get my free gems from meeting other Miis from streetpassing and for calling someone free online once a day and for spotpassing. I added a bunch of people to my friends from reddit who were exchanging friend codes and some Miis will also hand you a free gem sometimes after you rescue them in the levels. You can also get free gems by doing challengers but you can only win them once after you do a challenge. There are no limited lives in the game so it costs you two gems to continue.

Because I liked this game I decided to try other Pokemon Rumble games so I rented PRB from Gamefly and got it. It’s almost the same as PRW but there are no gems, you don’t have to spend any real money, there are no hot air balloons, there is the world view of course like in Zelda or other Pokemon games and you get three lives. I have captured 101 Pokemon in this game. There is no spotpassing feature but there is Streetpassing and I notice the levels are identical like in the other one and so are the challenge courses where I go in the arena and fight the other Pokemon. I can do the same level over and over without having to use gems or wait a couple hours or three.

The game starts out the same because you just continue and there is only one saved file so it starts where you left off and you do save and quit when you are done playing and then you hit the home button and close out of the game. Now I want to try the Rumble Blast U for WiiU and the one on WiiWare. But I don’t want to get myself overwhelmed with all these games so I will stick with these for now. I just keep saving up my gems for another hot air balloon by meeting other Miis and them giving me a free gem and you get a free gem after every five Miis you meet so that is two gems there when I do spotpassing because I always get ten friends total and I get a gem from meeting Miis through streetpassing and calling someone online for free once a day and after that it’s ten play coins if you want to do it again or else wait until the next day to do it for free. I am just too cheap to spend any real money for gems and they are pretty cheap to buy.
