In other sad news, it's nearly the one year anniversary of the death of Masato Masuda. He's the creator of Fire Pro Wrestling. He also made Pro Wrestling for the NES.
I only found out because I was trying to find out how I could transfer my PS2 memory card save games to my PC so that I could play Fire Pro Wrestling Returns using my saves on an emulator. Oh man is it complicated.
It's all the more complicated because I don't have a tv. So I was looking at how I could connect my PS2 to my PC monitor. Even that's complicated. There looks like a simple solution: buy a $40 "converter box" but they don't ship to the UK and I don't think they even make these things any more.
I don't think it's worth all of the hassle, frankly. I haven't played Fire Pro in over a year, probably. It's an awesome game but just setting it up on the tv was a pain. And then you can't watch tv. That's why it would be great on the computer but it looks like a huge, giant, mega hassle.
Well, I'll ask the folk on fpwarena. If anyone knows how, they do. It's the same group of nerds that I've seen there for the past 15 years or so.
I stand by Fire Pro Wrestling Returns being the greatest game ever. Masato Masuda was a true genius.
What else...oh, I was going to mention my idea of cataloging every memory I have. How boring would this be, though?
And I literally meant everything. Not memorable stuff but literally everything I could remember. Like the time that my mother threw away the Wizard of Oz cardboard house thing that I got from some book catalog from school even though I played it with as recently as the previous day (not that that should matter, nothing of mine should have been thrown away whether I still used it or not).
Or the time that I ditched a school pep rally and went home. It was pretty intense but all I did was leave from a seldom-used school exit and told my mother that it was an early day.
Or the time that I called a MILF Japanese dental assistant to suggest we get coffee and had to stiffle my laughter because she had a really high voice, as is popular in Japan. I think that they put it on because non-Japanese Asian people sound normal.
Actually, the more I think of this, the more brilliant this could be. If I could really get comrehensive, I could effectively create a copy of my own mind which could then be downloaded into a future artificial intelligence.
It wouldn't be quite the same, of course. For instance, unless I get really into the nitty gritty of what colour things were and whatnot, those details will have to just be filled in. And like I wouldn't know the layout of my school unless I described it in great detail.
Still, it would be something. Well, would it? Hazy memories where the AI has to fill in loads of missing information. And to what end? I mean, there's loads of stuff that one doesn't remember. It's not a big loss. Who cares if future generations won't know that my first job interview was at a casino and that I said, "I don't mind working" in answer to "tell me about yourself."
Life is all throw away garbage. Once an experience is over, it ceases to be of any importance.
