Taking a closer look at my pirate carts.

By : Luis Zena

Mystery Cartridge for Genesis...what is it really?

By : Luis Zena
So here is an interesting question. I bought this supposedly pirate cart for the genesis thinking it was a multi cart but no games showed up. I decided to insert a cart on top of it since it has a connection thing for carts and the game started but with weird sounding music. So my question is, what the hell does this cart do? A friend of mine told me it's a region type of cart that'll let you play carts that are only for specific regions. Maybe it is or maybe not. Anyways, shoot me up with some info on this cart. I'm uploading four photos I took of the cart. Cya

Son of a beach! Laptop DVDR broken!~

By : Luis Zena
Man this really bites. Only two days left until I go away and the DVDR drive of my laptop doesn't work. It keeps spitting the discs out! Oh well not like I use discs at all but still. That really pissed me off. I'll check out if I can get it fixed during my trip because down there things are a lot cheaper. Anyways, that's about it, until next time fack!

Moded PS1 lives!!

By : Luis Zena
Oh man I had a scare since I got the moded ps1 from craiglist. The console wasn't reading the discs that well so I talked to a friend who gave me some tips on how to clean the lens to try to make it work. Well after some careful cleaning, the PS1 works flawlessly! It's great to have this one working fine. Now to find a place for it....

The days are coming closer

By : Luis Zena
Oh man I can't believe in four days I'll be off on vacation of a lifetime! This will be an amazing journey with vast dungeons and intriguing allies! hmm not really but it'll be a lot of fun. I'll be sure to bring my camera to show you guys my hometown and the place where I grew up. Also, if there are any game finds down there I'll be more than happy to show them off(mostly pirates I bet). These coming two weeks will be a time for me to relax and refocus on what I want to do in life. There are so many things I have to do when I go that it might not be a vacation after all! Well, I'll keep you guys posted!

A Day to Remember, Water Everywhere!

By : Luis Zena
Man I had the craziest day yesterday. The morning started with a lot of sun and heat, but then it turned for the worse. The rain started little by little and then real strong with winds and lighting! It was a pretty nice day to stay home and relax but nuuuuuuuu, I had to take my brother for surgery, then I had to pick up my mom, and then I went shopping. When I finally got home, the streets were flooded and stranded cars everywhere. It even got more scarier when I went to drop my mom off at work. She works in South Beach so the road to get there was just amazing. I wish I knew how it was because I would've brought my camera. Anyways, there were stranded cars everywhere in that area. Some houses had water reaching inside while others were barely saved from the flooding. The reason why cars got stranded is because many cars were driving through the water real fast which is the stupidest thing someone can do. Of course, water will get inside the motor and the result, a busted car. As I was driving, I saw a white ban coming awfully fast from the other direction so I had my window down. I didn't hesitated and pulled the window up as fast as I could but my wife and mom didn't know what was going on so they kept theirs opened. Well the ban didn't stopped and they got wet while I was spared lol. After dropping my mother off at work, I had to head south to pick up my sister from work. That was another crazy journey trying to find the less flooded street and drive through it. South Beach itself was crazy with cars and people going nuts(not sure why). I picked up my sister and we headed back. We were doing OK but the traffic was too much so we decided to try going back the way we came. We were doing good until once again a big car this time a bus drove by us real fast and got the car wet. This time the car wasn't spared as smoke started coming out of the front and I started to freak out! We had to pull over and check things out. I assume that water got inside the engine and that's what it was. I took a cloth and tried to dry it off and waited around ten minutes before trying to turn the car on. The car turned on fine but the smoke kept coming out of the car. The smoke this time had a burned plastic scent so that freaked me out even more. We stopped the car again and waited. As I was waiting, I looked at all the cars passing by and saw that some of them had the same problem but they were driving alright. I decided to take a chance and drove once again. We finally got out of that mess and slowly headed back home. I'm happy to announce that the car is in great condition but I will probably take it for a check up just in case.
