These are the recent stuff that i've posted for you, folks (up to three rows of new deviations).

Just one thing though: I do not want anyone stealing my stuff, as i worked really hard on either making art or by shooting snapshots, using my photo camera. So you can fave them if you want (that won't bother me), but please, do not steal them and use them as your own.

Also, your comments (as long as they're reasonable) and faves do help motivate me to continue working on them.

Thank you for your comprehension.

Random from The DX Divas and my other OCs, done by other

I do love to draw other peoples's OCs myself, but sometimes, it's also fun to see my OCs get drawn by other deviants in their own version. Whether it's my DX Divas, the DX Divas's eccentric mentor Heather Solomon, my otaku senshi Sailor Triforia or any other OC that i can come up with, you can see their version in here.

Quite interesting, to say the least, don't you folks think? Of course, the copyrights of each of their artistic versions of my DX Divas, as well as my other OCs belongs to them, although copyrights of all of my characters shown in my gallery belongs to me.

Random from Princess Peach's Castle

I just love Princess Peach, she's my favorite princess in all of the Mario series.

Anything that is all about the Mushroom Kingdom's kindest of monarchs will be shown in this collection.


shnoogums5060 has started a donation pool!
21,196 / 10,000

I had to start a donation pool sooner or later, folks.

So, if you liked my arts, then maybe you can donate some points to me (if you wish to do so, that is), as i'll need them for either a sub renewal of my CORE membership or to commission those who have points commissions opened.

Just donate what you can, folks. Small or big, it doesn't matter.

You can also help these people too, as they also need DA points as well, folks:

Also, points commissions are now reopened once more, folks. Check my journal for details:
Points Commissions Journal (REOPENED ONCE AGAIN)Hey everyone. How are you all doing? I hope you're doing great, because the time has come to finally open my points commissions to all of you, folks. And ten spots will be open, so come and claim your spot, although before you do, here's what you need to take into consideration. And i'll make sure not to confuse any of you, so here's how we'll proceed.
Before i let you know of that, take a look at my chart first: 

Alright, now here's my method of procedure:
1. You must comment on my journal first, letting me know that you'll commission me (with your DA points, of course). The first ten people that comment and tell me that they want to claim a commission spot will be included on the list. When all ten spots will be claimed, i'll be closing commissions afterwards, as i don't want to be overloaded.
2. Once your spot is claimed, you must tell me what you want and from which category, meaning let me know if you want:
- A Chibi Character (150 :points:)
- A Knees Up Char

You must be logged in to donate.

My thoughts on the NES Classic Edition

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 14, 2018, 3:52 PM
  • Listening to: NES Classic Edition Menu Theme
Hey there, folks, it's yours truly, Eric B., back once more with the delivery of my thoughts on gaming stuff... and boy, it's been months since i've last delivered something about a game or console or anything else that came into mind, so now, to remedy to the long wait, i'll talk about the one thing i should've talked about last year, but couldn't: The NES Classic Edition. Seeing that the mini-console is back in stores, due to high demand from consumers, i thought of talking about what this cool 8-bit mini NES is all about.

Now We're Playing With Mini Power by shnoogums5060

Like the Super NES Classic Edition that i've talked about a few months ago, when you first start off the NES Classic Edition, there's the language settings that needs to be set before getting started on playing the game. The Famicom Mini, like the Super Famicom Mini, don't have that luxury of selecting the language, so that's one thing missing for the japanese gamers. And the interface on those consoles are based on the colors of the original consoles themselves, meaning that the red and white color, along with the Famicom logo is what you'll see if you're playing with the Famicom Mini, while for the NES Classic Edition, in both North America and European territories, the interface is of light grey and dark grey. And save states can be created, but only when you push the reset button on the console OR if you push the Home button on a classic Wii controller, connected to the NES Classic Edition. For japanese gamers, however, like the original Famicom, the console has two controllers permanently wired to the mini console, so they won't have a choice, but to push the reset button each time they want to either change games or make save states.

One thing that the Famicom Mini have and that the rest of the world doesn't, is among the games that are included, there's those from the Famicom Disk System and when you select that game on that specific console, the Disk System start-up screen will appear, right before you start playing the chosen game in mind. This is something that the rest of the world, as mentioned, don't have on our NES Classic Editions, seeing that we've never gotten a Disk System peripheral on our NES consoles. Oh well.

And of course, 30 games are included on both consoles, which among the two different versions, there's eight exclusive games that the other console don't have, meaning that on the Famicom Mini, they have Atlantis no Nazo (by Sunsoft), Downtown Nekketsu Koshinkyoku: Soreyuke Daiundokai (originally by Technos Japan), Final Fantasy III (by Square-Enix, the original one and not the SNES version that they took from Final Fantasy VI in Japan there), Mario's Open Golf (aka NES Open Tournament Golf by Nintendo), Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari (aka River City Ransom by Technos Japan), Soromon no Kagi (or Solomon's Key, if you will, by Tecmo), Tsuppari Ozumo (also by Tecmo) and Yie-Ar Kung Fu (by Konami). Among those eight, NES Open Tournament Golf, River City Ransom and Solomon's Key were released in North America on the NES years ago. The rest were Japan exclusives, which is somewhat of a shame... for some of them, that is.

In North American territories, the eight exclusive games that we had, but that Japan never got were Bubble Bobble (originally by Taito), Castlevania II: Simon's Quest (by Konami), Donkey Kong Jr. (by Nintendo), Final Fantasy (published by Nintendo, but belonging to Square-Enix), Kid Icarus (by Nintendo), Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream (by Nintendo), StarTropics (by Nintendo, a game not published on the Famicom at all) and Tecmo Bowl (by Tecmo).

For both consoles, the common games were none other than Balloon Fight (by Nintendo), Castlevania (by Konami, known as Akumajo Dracula in Japan), Donkey Kong (by Nintendo), Double Dragon II: The Revenge (originally by Technos Japan and/or Acclaim), Dr. Mario (by Nintendo), Excitebike (by Nintendo), Galaga (by Bandai-Namco Games), Ghosts 'N Goblins (by Capcom, also known as Makai Mura in Japan), Gradius (by Konami), Ice Climber (by Nintendo), Kirby's Adventure (by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory, also known as Hoshi no Kirby: Yume no Izumi no Monogatari in Japan), Mario Bros. (by Nintendo), Mega Man 2 (by Capcom, also known as Rockman 2: Dr. Wily no Nazo), Metroid (by Nintendo), Ninja Gaiden (by Tecmo, also known as Ninja Ryukenden in Japan and Shadow Warriors in Europe), Pac-Man (by Bandai-Namco Games), Super C (by Konami, also known as Super Contra in Japan and Probotector 2: Return of the Evil Forces in Europe), Super Mario Bros. 1, 2 and 3 (all three by Nintendo, although Nintendo renamed the US Super Mario 2 game as Super Mario USA in Japan), The Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (both by Nintendo, respectively known as The Hyrule Fantasy: Zelda no Densetsu and Zelda no Densetsu 2: Link no Bouken in Japan).

Now, i'll go on record and say that among many of the included games... in our North American NES Classic Edition console, there's some that i've prefered skipping, as i would have too many problems understanding those... and truth is, i still had difficulty understanding those titles. Castlevania II, Final Fantasy, Kid Icarus and the two Zelda games, as well as Tecmo Bowl and StarTropics, i've never been able to comprehend them (though i did tried playing with StarTropics, at the very least), though for the Zelda ones, at least i was able to understand the mechanics in the Link to the Past one on my SNES Classic... which is weird, now that i think about it. But for the other ones, like the classic Mario games, the other black box games, the original Castlevania, Mega Man 2, Gradius and so forth, they're just as i remembered them. But one thing that i've noticed in the Pat The NES Punk video is that Pat himself mentioned that there was some lag in the final boss of Punch-Out!!, meaning Mr. Dream. As far as i can tell, i didn't got to him just yet, though i did remembered that i once got to Mike Tyson in my original copy of Punch-Out on my NES years ago and i've not had any lag problems in it. Maybe someday, once i get to Mr. Dream, i'll see if there's any lag to it. Also, Ice Climber, while i strongly remember that one via a pirated multi-cart years ago and had some fun with it, is kinda considered to be a poor choice of game, due to broken jumping controls in that one. Maybe they should've included a different NES game rather than Ice Climber, even if i had nothing against it and all that. Or maybe not, who knows.

Anyway, for the controllers of the console itself, the cords were kinda too short, so i had to buy an extensive cord, to make my NES controller longer. And there was also the fact that they only included ONE NES controller with the package. They didn't included two controllers at all, though they did sold additional NES controllers... if i could find one more, that is. Meh, like that matters, seeing that i can use my Wii controllers to have easier access to the menu on my NES Classic Edition, which a bubbly 8-bit-like music is heard when you're on that menu. Meaning this one:

Just by listening to it brings back fond memories of the good ol' NES days, huh? In any case, i really like the music and while some of the games, i would've wished they had brought something else for that list of games, at least they did what they could to please their audience. Sadly though, when they first released that console, they didn't had enough stock of NES Classic Edition consoles, so people had to go to scalpers to get their copies of that console... or get some cheap knock-off of that console, that had like 600 NES games in it. My sister did got said knock-off of it, that was called the Cool Baby or whatever it is called. And i've yet to see how it plays out, even though the format is similar to the NES Classic Edition... but in complete reverse, so tp speak. And she got that on Amazon, from what she told me. Now, i don't personally own that knock-off, though i'm curious to see how this one plays out. Maybe when she comes over for a visit someday, she'll bring that one and i'll check it out... though it's clear that hers is mostly a Famiclone of sorts.

Regardless, i was lucky to have found my NES Classic Edition last year, though i had to lend it to her for a few months during the holidays, if i do recall correctly there. And she didn't play with it, due to her life's work and all that, but i'm sure she'll check it out one of these days... for real. As far as i'm concerned, i truly enjoy replaying these NES games again, including the ones that i would probably want to skip, but... well, i'll think about giving another go at StarTropics one day... although if i could only get my hands on a Famicom Mini, that'd be cool... then again, it would cost me lots to get one, so... maybe i'll skip the Famicom Mini. Who knows.

Anyway, with the NES Classic Edition back in stores, i'm sure more people would be able to snag their own mini NES and have fun playing with the included games... though Japan would probably have fun playing with their own special Famicom Mini, that includes other Famicom games that are not on the NES Classic, such as Kinnikuman (aka MUSCLE in North America, a not so good wrestling game, so to speak), for instance. And who knows, maybe we'll probably see an exclusive NES Classic Edition that contains games that Japan would probably not see, like the TMNT games, for example or maybe some other licensed exclusives or whatever. Hey, a guy can dream, right?

Concerning Huang's hairstyle, should she let her hair all loosen up or should it remain as it is, meaning having it all rolled up? 

16 deviants said Loosen her hair down
11 deviants said Keep it rolled up


Is August going to be another tragic month for passing wrestlers? I've just learned that Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart has passed away at the age of 63. Cause of death unknown right now.
My dog gave me quite a scare this afternoon, as she had another epileptic attack on her. She hasn't done any for quite some time, though seeing her going all wonky was quite scary for me.

I called my sister, who works at a veterinary place, and asked her to come check on her. Luckily, she's okay now, but i'm keeping my eye on her, ensuring that she doesn't do another one again. I really hate it when she does these epilepsises on me there.
In terms of seeing some characters like Bomberman, Shovel Knight, Zero and Alucard being assist trophies, i will understand your frustrations that they're nothing more than assist trophies. Waluigi still is an assist character too, but to those who are angry about it, just know that the Smash development team are doing all that they can to please their fans in bringing those that you want to see as playable characters.

Though i will confess that just seeing some of the most wanted characters assist trophies is not very pleasant, but in my personal opinion (and i'm not targeting anyone here, just stating facts), you just need to take as it is, even if it's not a plesant thing to go with. Not all fans will agree with thst, i get it. But please, to those who are angry about your wanted characters not being playable in Smash Ultimate: Just get over it! Raging over it is not going to help make things better for Sakurai and his development team for Smash Ultimate.

That's all.
Just saw the Smash Ultimate Direct... and holy shit, they really are pouring things out to the max, aren't they?

Simon and Richter are in the main roster, as is King K. Rool, as well as Chrom and Dark Samus... though some other guests are assist trophies, mostly Zero, Alucard and... yeah, i know, Shovel Knight, but hey, what are you gonna do about that.

I'm an old school gamer and i've been doing that since 1983. I also like to draw and write, though it depends on what my mind can come up with at times... as long as it's well acceptable on my own part (and yours too, that is).

I'm more of a fan of Nintendo games and their consoles than other gaming consoles, but i don't mind adding a bit of gaming from Sony's Playstation 2 and PSP consoles.

My favorite video game characters are Princess Peach, Rosalina, Mega Man, Bass, Proto Man, Zero, Donkey Kong, Simon Belmont, Splash Woman (from Mega Man 9), Meta Knight and Wario. I also have a soft spot for some old school game characters like Strider Hiryu, Wonder Momo and Bomberman.

My favorite anime characters are Haruhi Suzumiya (from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya), Yuki Nagato (also from the Haruhi Suzumiya anime), Aika Sumeragi (from Agent Aika) and Cutie Honey (from most Cutie Honey incarnations).

I do also like to do crossover arts about game characters and anime characters meeting each other and my mind's full of that.

Oh, and please, if you're going to watch me, refrain from doing so for no reason, folks.
