Tag Archives: streets of rage

I made a new blog intro that is already on the “World of MegaSonic” page under the one for last year. I devoted this blog intro to self-expression, much as I did the previous one but in a different fashion. I use a knowledge of video games and video editing experimentation to tell a sort of short story that describes what I hope to accomplish with this blog. Plus a bit of humor for Chrono Trigger fans.

(Channel: MegaSonic) No one watches my good videos on youtube. Maybe I just don’t know how to tag/promote them, but when less well developed videos have over a 100,000 views and better ones have less than 1,000 the question becomes, “why?” I believe my yu yu hakusho video (about 900) is worthy of more views than the castle in the sky video (over 100,000). However, either no one has an interest in the former, or it just doesn’t come up in searches. Most of my videos are rated fairly high, but the traffic is sometimes slow. I really expected more people to watch my Dr. Martin Luther King Jr video, my Mononoke Hime video, and my sonic the hedgehog videos. In fact, since my castle in the sky video was one of the first I put up, I expected almost everything else to do at least as well as that one. I personally, really enjoy my blog introduction video, but that is rarely viewed. I also like my streets of rage videos, especially the most recent one. I don’t really care too mch for the political videos I made. They make a statement, but the quality is not so great. When I make anime music videos, or game music videos I make them the same way I write poetry. That is kinda strange, but it works for me. I’ll be trying something fairly different soon, probably some health tips videos. please watch my videos, and say what you think. The tags list out everthing covered in my videos. http://www.youtube.com/user/MegaSonic

I completed an introduction video that will be on the “world of megasonic” page indefinitely, but for now it’ll be here too.

Yeah, the hurricane was over two years ago, but this stuff will never be old news, especially when so many people are still affected. Getting to what I wanted to say…when I heard reports of the chaos shortly after the storm ended (people roaming the streets, shootings, looting, etc.) I thought about the Sega Genesis game series Streets of Rage. The characters in the game were cops who set out to do what others were apparently unwilling to do, defeat a syndicate. Similarly, in New Orleans after Katrina much of the police force skipped out on their duties leaving only a small dedicated force.

Yeah, yeah. I like to write poetry. I don’t write very often but this is fairly old and since the blog is new it might be stacked with poetry for a while. Anyway, this is based on some Sega Genesis games. See if you can guess the titles, it shouldn’t be too hard. Look at the tags for the answers. Every line but two has a corresponding game.

There is a shout in the night

“all your base are belong to us”

an ‘echo’ reaches the depths of the ocean

The force of thunder rages outside

and the sound of bass drums barrel like a calling for evil as a contraption approaches

A Dark Force is behind the mayhem,

the streets are filled with rage,

it is time to escape.
