Out of all of the former No Limit soldiers, Fiend has arguably been doing the best (besides Snoop of course) since he left the label.  Shortly after leaving the label, he hit the ground running dropping albums and mixtapes, and working with people such as Little John, David Banner, and Three Six Mafia before many of them became famous.  He had a deal with Ruff Ryders, even appearing on some of thier albums, but that fell through.  Now he’s independent, and his game is as sharp as ever.  This is probably his best post No Limit release.  The production comes mostly from him and Beats By The Pound (Now known as the medicine men) and the few guest appearences are from the artists on his label, mainly Corner Boy P.  The first track is a dope way to open the album, and another track I like is ‘That’s what you want”.  I was hoping to hear some 1998 No Limit style old school flavor, but the production here is slamming and fiend is comming dope as hell as always.  Fiend is one of the south’s illest lyricists and this album is more of what we love from the man.  He may not do a 5th of what he should sell, but he’s still hard as fuck.

Review: Mega Man collection (Xbox, PS2, Gamecube 2004)

June 21, 2006 at 5:14 pm (capcom, Reviews, Video Games)

megaman.JPGThroughout gaming, mega man has been one of the most consistent franchises ever. There have been over 40 games on nearly every major system, a cartoon show, a comic book, an action figure line, and several spin offs (mega man x, legends, zero, and battle network). this collection contains the first 8 games of the core series, and two unlockable fighting games that were until now, only released in japan. Also, players can unlock artwork and music. You can play the games in thier original 8-bit form, or in navi mode, with remixed music, new subscreens, and a hint feature for various level points. Still, you can't power up until mega man 4 or slide until mega man 3. For the few players who don't know about mega man, the series stars a robot. There are 8 stages in each game (6 in the original) which you can tackle in any order. After you beat each boss, you accuire thier weapon. The trick is knowing which weapon works on which boss. Mega man 2 introduced a password feature (although each game can be saved to memory card), while mega man 3, considered to be the best in the series by many fans introduced Rush, mega man's side kick. Mega man 4 and 5 improved on the formula, while 6 didn't garner much attention since it was released towards the end of the NEs's life cycle and mega man x made it's debut on the super nintendo at the same time. Mega man 7, which almost didn't come out due to the snes being near the end of it's life cycle, was the first game of the original series to hit the super nintendo. (until then, there was the mega man x series) Mega man 8 bought the series to playstation, with cd quality music and anime scenes. This pack is cheap, and anyone who considers themself a true gamer should pick it up. Due to the nature of this game, i can't rate the graphics. Sound $$$$$ playability $$$$1/4 theme/presentation $$$$$ overall $$$$$

+ – one of the best franchises in gaming

– – no mega man x, or mega man soccer.
