Videogamer’s rant about US Presidential election season 2016

This Presidential election season was a joke and I’m happy it’s over because the variety of Presidential choices were of lesser quality than the variety of videogame choices at a GameStop store; politics (at least on the federal level) in this country [United States of America] has been as bankrupt as Midway Games.

Videogamer’s rant on Bush V. Gore

MH4 gaming

I’ve been a videogame consumer since the United States of America’s 2000 Presidential election season. Living in the United States of America, I was an elementary-school child at that time.


Retroactively looking at the Supreme Court’s ruling on Bush v. Gore, which resulted in millions of Al Gore votes thrown away, I imagine myself like Nash knocked off a waterfall by M.Bison in Street Fighter Alpha 2. In the case of such a metaphor, the helicopter that shot me off a waterfall would represent the United States’ Supreme Court judges who gave the White House to George W Bush while George W. Bush himself would represent M.Bison.

As you can see, my personal comparison to both  Nash’s story ending in Street Fighter Alpha 2 and his resurrection in Street Fighter V is one of dark humor.

Nintendo Network rant

Going to the ‘country of residence’ page while setting up my Nintendo Network ID as of 1-2 years ago, Nintendo sent me a warning that said ‘if you change this [country of residence], then you won’t have access to Nintendo Network services’.

It’s ridiculous how Kate Upton is used as a ‘poster girl’ for that game called Game of War; Adding to the ridiculousness, I don’t love MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) games and hate having these Game of War ads with Kate Upton appear on my screen(s).
