    How to Prepare for Your First Convention

    How to Prepare for Your First Convention

    Attending conventions and meeting people are the two things I love the most about being a cosplayer. Every time I go to a con, it's like being at a party and seeing people in their costumes. If you're new to cosplay and searching for some ways on how to make your con experience enjoyable and memorable, then you have come to the right person. I've been doing cosplay for about four years and I get pumped planning for a convention. To me, it's like preparing for prom. I'll be sharing some pointers to make sure everything runs smoothly for you before your next convention.

    Kids These Days Will Never Know: Part Four

    Kids These Days Will Never Know: Part Four

    You have seen 15 of my favorite things I have experienced as a kid and I'll be revealing the last five items on my list. Being a kid in the 80s and 90s was so much easier and simpler. We have to sit back and appreciate nostalgia in general because if we don't, we won't have anything to look back on. Nostalgia, in my opinion, is sacred, because it should be respected and welcomed at all times. So without further ado, hope you enjoy the final five items on my list.

    Kids These Days Will Never Know: Part One

    As a kid growing up in Arlington, Texas, life and times were much simpler and easier. I'm a lover of nostalgia and appreciate the things that I was surrounded with.

It's going to be broken down in five separate parts and 20 items in total, in no particular order.

    'Super Contra' Review

    'Super Contra' Review

    When I first purchased and received my NES Classic Edition just weeks before Christmas in 2016, Super Contra, or Super C, was one of the games that I was eager to play. As a kid, I played the original Contra game, but was unable to get through the third area. In Super Contra, Pfc. Bill Rizer and Pfc. Lance Bean of the Contra unit must not only fight against their former comrade-in-arms, but also a new mutated form of the same alien creatures they fought during their previous mission. As for getting extra lives, it's a little bit different. On the original Contra game, on the title screen, you would use the popular Konami Code, which is Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start and receive 30 lives. In Super C, you would receive 10 lives by using the following code on the title screen: Right, Left, Down, Up, A, B, then Start. My favorite weapon, without a doubt, is the beloved Spread gun. It's my best friend and I say that because it's a lot more effective. There are eight areas in this game, so I'm going to give my review of each one.
