Bebe's Kids Was a Bad Game for the SNES


A Look Back at Bebe's Kids

Overview of Bebe's kids for the SNES.

Based on the animated film of the same name, Bebe's Kid is a 2D side-scrolling fighting game in the style of the Simpsons arcade game. Players can choose to play as Rashawn the girl or Cahill the boy, though each character is played in the same way. Each button has a basic punch, kick, and jump button, as well as a modifier button that, when held down to match an attack, provides upward movement, knocking down basic enemies in a few hits. Most of the game is a simple side-scroller with some basic environments like a food court and a haunted house. There are some simple puzzle elements as well as maze levels[1].

Mind you, this game deserves its legacy. Bebe's Kids elevated the unlicensed era of side-scrolling SNES games to an art form. The only thing worse than having to look at the game's boring graphics and hear its terrible soundtrack is to be forced to navigate its horrific combat, confusing level layout, and punishing time limit when actually playing the game. To be honest, it's too bad to be impressive[2].

Searching for Philippine Jobs on Global Classified Ad Sites

In the process of trying to find a job, I decided to compile a list of websites where job listings can be found.  Compiling the list proved to be daunting since there were a number of different types of websites that I needed to sift through if I wanted the list to be as comprehensive as I wanted.

The primary sites for online job posts are job websites such as  Other types of websites that contain job listings are job listing aggregators and online classified ad websites.

For each of these types of websites, they can also be further segregated into sites that are focused only on local jobs, sites that cater to regional job seekers, and then sites that offer job listings located around the world.

Due to the difficulty of classifying and then compiling numerous websites, I have had to focus my attention on just one type of job listing website at a time.  The first article will concentrate on global classified ad websites.

Classified ad websites are sites that allow users to post classified ads for free and they will be limited to those websites that have a worldwide presence.  Please have a look at the article, "Top Global Classified Ad Websites with Philippine Job Listings".

23 Underrated XBLIG Gems - Goodbye Xbox Live Indie Games Part 3

Most of the popular or critically-acclaimed Xbox Live Indie Game titles can be found in the top 1000 user-rated rankings on the Xbox Marketplace.  Most of the XBLIG games I bought or plan to buy can be found within the top 1000.

There are a few Xbox 360 indie games though that I found that I liked which I bought or still plan to buy, that were not in the top 1000 user-rated titles.  Being outside the top 1000 means that these games are usually unnoticed by prospective buyers.  These games are not only underrated, they are left underappreciated.
