Watergames

picture_2_10.pngFinally,

I found a picture of this childhood toy. It was oringally manufactured by the Japanese company named Tomi. The game involved simple tasks like shooting balls into nets, pin ball style, only the action occurs in water. Present game giants like Nintendo have resurrected the Tomi toy and have merged another classic character, the Mario Brothers, to bring back the nineties.

Pencil Case Showcase

Pop out pencil case--a hit amongst kids in the 90s

This used to be a competition amongst girls back in grade school. The one with the most number of crayons wins. The one with the prettiest watch becomes the toast of town for at least two weeks. Lastly, the one with the most number of compartments for a pencil case will be crowned as Miss National Bookstore. 

Behold, the pop-out pencil case. This particular case boasts of a pencil sharpener, a kisses holder, a small container for paper clips, a calendar and it’s in bubble gum pink. What more can you ask for?

Sanrio in the 90s

Pochacco

Of the many characters Sanrio created, Pochacco one of the best to represent the nineties. Pochacco “grew up” in the nineties. He is drawn as a white dog with black floppy ears, but no visible mouth. He is often dressed in athletic attire, as he has a sporty and playful personality. He is the best three-on-three basketball player on the playground and a good goalie as well. His favorite food are banana ice cream and carrots (a vegetarian dog!)

Want to know which sanrio character are you? Take the test! http://guru.theotaku.com/view.php?action=retrieve&id=70

Which sanrio character do you want us to feature next? :)

It’s Crash Bandicoot time!

If Sega had Sonic and Nintendo had Mario, back then, Sony had CRASH BANDICOOT. Crash Bandicoot was one of the first platform games which rocked the world. The game had cool levels, outrageous enemies, and lots of FUN. What was cool about it was that Crash had the ability to become invincible with some mask he needed to wear. (Aboombaga!)

It’s Parappa the Rapper time!

Kick, punch, it’s all in the mind. If you want me to teach ya, I’ll do ya fine. Chop, chop, chop! –Master Onion

These are the famous lines in one of the most popular casual rhythm-based button-mashing addicting game of all time – Parappa the Rapper! This first rhythm-based PS1 game had a simple story with the easiest mission: press the corresponding buttons at the correct time.

By doing so, Parappa, who happens to be a paper-thin rapping dog, would progress in the story and complete his mission of winning the heart of his lover, Sunny Funny. Oh my gosh! HAHA! Simple as it may sound, this game is best remembered for its unique gameplay, cool graphic design, outrageous characters, and crazy plot.

Check the first challenge song out with the Chop Chop Master Onion!

Playstation mania!

The PLAYSTATION – it’s every gamer’s dream back in the 90’s (1994 to be exact). It was the birth to 3d graphics and the use of CD-Rs which were both new to ever person. This obliterated the regime of Nintendo and the enemy of the gaming market, Sega Dreamcast.

This successful machine had a successful launch with almost all types of games, including Twisted mental, Warhawk, Ridge Racer, and many more. The machine was widely accepted by the market and continuously was supported by numerous gaming companies such as Konami (Metal Gear Solid franchise), Activision (Vigilante 8 and Tenchu), Namco (Ace Combat and Tekken), Squaresoft (Final Fantasy series), and MANY MORE! Up to now, because of the success of the PlayStation brand, it has expanded its name to better products (PS2, PSP, and PS3).

So, how was your PlayStation experience? What classic games did you play? Share your insights! Comment below.

Here’s a playstation commercial. Crash Bandicoot v.s. Parappa the Rapper. It’s in Jap tho, haha! Look at the guy in the middle, he’s wearing a Playstation machine on his head!

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers!

  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]

  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
