hector

When nine-year-old Hector Montoya of Dallas-Fort-Worth heard that a mother and her young child perished in a home fire he was so moved that he gave up his PlayStation 4 savings to buy smoke detectors for families and individuals in need.

“I was going to buy a PlayStation but I decided saving a life was more important cause one life lost is too many.”

What more can you say?

Hector had saved up $300 but at age nine he was able to comprehend a reality far beyond his years. After making the purchase young Hector teamed up with a local fire department and went door to door to instal them.

When a reporter asked his mother how proud she was of her son she stated that “Hector has a big heart.” A big heart and wisdom that deserves to be rewarded.

In the end, Hector received the PlayStation he had been saving up for. When his story aired on NBC, a Texas brother and sister duo decided to step up and get him the PlayStation 4 themselves.

Pay it forward indeed.

  1. Pokemon hasn’t changed!! Nintendo should just end the series IMMEDIATELY!! THE ANIME IS A JOKE!!! THEY KILLED THE FRANCHISE!!! HOW THE HELL IS SATOSHI GONNA BECOME A POKEMON MASTER!? AND JUST FOR THE RECORD, THE ANIME HAS BEEN OUT FOR 17 YEARS AND HE STILL HASN’T BECOME A POKEMON MASTER!! REALLY!? POKEMON HAS BEEN OUT FOR 18 YEARS!! If Satoshi doesn’t even become a Pokemon Master by the time it’s 2016/2017 and if the Pokemon Anime doesn’t even end immediately, everybody’s gonna be very FUCKING pissed!! Game Freak has already made the series a complete joke because they haven’t even changed!! I’ve played and seen many series I liked turned to shit!! Pokemon has became one of them, Nintendo is just gonna keep milking these out and eventually the review scores will catch up with them!! It’ll be like the Mario series!! People will start to realize they’re getting milked, who aren’t fanboys and it’s all going to come down!! Pokemon isn’t even great of a series in my opinion, I mean it’s just terrible!! It’s the same game each time, the plot is formulatic, basically you play as a bunch of guys who are like, 「OMG LETZ BECUM DA POKEMON MASTA!!!」 and it’s a formula!! There’s a Professor, there’s a region, there’s a bunch of Pokemon!! You have to fight and evil gang, beat the Gym Leader, beat the Four Heavenly Kings/Elite Four and the Champion, you win!! Black and White tried to make the story more forced!! Nintendo is basically nickel-and-dime Pokemon fans and miliking until it’s dry!! All in all, Pokemon is just a 「meh」 series!! Save your munny and DON’T BUY IT!! Put your money on games that are actually innovative and games that came out in the same year as Pokemon!! As you can tell they saw some Mass Effect 2, Black Ops, Mortal Kombat 9, Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 in stores!! And when you find Pokemon Black and White, nope, you still have to find!! And if you can only find Pokemon XY, which SUCKED!! I’m putting this up on Rip-Ten NEWS and have everyone in the whole world to see it!! If you think Pokemon XY Anime and game is good, you are MENTALLY INFECTED AND HAVE NO LIFE!! You need to go see a Psychotherapist IMMEDIATELY!! You are a MAJOR THREAT to public safety and bring GRAVE DANGER to our society!! Thank you very much for reading this and have a nice day!!

  2. Another thing that killed Pokemon, you guessed it, Mega-Evolutions!! THEY LOOK LIKE FUCKING SHIT!!! THEY RUINED MEWTWO AND THE GEN 1 STARTERS AND RUINED MY CHILDHOOD!!! IT IS A — USELESS GIMMICK THAT ADDS NOTHING TO THE GAMEPLAY!!! You know the worst part!? Fans were ACTUALLY defending this!! Fans DEFENDED this useless gimmick BUT made a BIG deal when PETA made fun of Pokemon!! That’s right!! They care more when somebody makes fun of their game!! When Nintendo changed stuff in HeartGold/SoulSilver a long time ago, the replaced the slots with some Minesweeper rip-off which some people hated!! You know the worst part!? Fans were ACTUALLY defending this!! Fans DEFENDED this change!! When Nintendo changes stuff, they don’t care, they’ll buy it anyway instead of complaining or doing anything!! Basically they’ll buy up anything!! This is the most hardest proof yet!!

  3. I hope Game Freak lost a ton of money making Pokémon XY and I hope the Producers of the Pokémon anime lost a ton of money for not ending the Pokémon anime!!

    • It’s not that I HATE Nintendo, it’s just the that 2DS is a piece of shit compared to the PSP/PS Vita!! You can go on Ebay and buy a PSP and have a lot more fun!! If you want, you can EASILY hack it and play all your favourite older games like SNES/SEGA GENESIS/Gameboy/PS1!! All in all, 2DS is a WASTE OF MONEY!! Why does Nintendo need to make a 2DS!! I’m pretty sure you read my previous comment saying Nintendo loses money for make the Nintendo 2DS!! Whoever came up with this is DUMB and I hope they REALLY lose a ton of money for that!! save your money for the PSP instead so you can hack it to play old skool games and have a lot more fun so you won’t get bored!! Should I get a PSP!?It’s not that I HATE Nintendo, it’s just the that 2DS is a piece of shit compared to the PSP/PS Vita!! You can go on Ebay and buy a PSP and have a lot more fun!! If you want, you can EASILY hack it and play all your favourite older games like SNES/SEGA GENESIS/Gameboy/PS1!! All in all, 2DS is a WASTE OF MONEY!! Why does Nintendo need to make a 2DS!! I’m pretty sure you read my previous comment saying Nintendo loses money for make the Nintendo 2DS!! Whoever came up with this is DUMB and I hope they REALLY lose a ton of money for that!! I tore my 3DS apart!! I wish I could just get my money back…… But it’s too late…… Sob……

        • That’s cool!! I’m thinking of getting a PSP so I can hack it just to play old games like SNES/SEGA GENESIS/PS1/GBC while you can’t do that on the 3DS!! I was just playing my PlayStation 2 after I made that comment about one game has PlayStation 2 graphics!! A 3DS game with PlayStation 2 graphics!? WHAZZUPWITDAT!? That doesn’t make any goddamn sense!! I heard PS Vita just outsold the 3DS in Japan!!

  4. I think by now that I have always enjoyed playing Pokemon on my Gameboy when I was a child!! Many great games came out for the Gameboy Color espcially Pokemon GSC!! RSE for the GBA wasn’t as good GSC!! I heard DPPlatinum wasn’t that great in the end!! When Black and White came out, it looked like shit!! When XY came out, WTF IS THIS SHIT!? WORST POKEMON GAME I’VE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!!! WHEN THE NEW BW/XY SERIES FOR THE ANIME CAME OUT, THEY KILLED THE SERIES!!! BEST WISHES AND XY ARE A FUCKING JOKE!!! THEY KILLED THE POKEMON FRANCHISE!!!

  5. About Pokemon XY game, they look like shit!! The graphics for Pokémon XY!? More like a PS2 game!! How can they get away with such blatant rubbish!? CALL OF DUTY 4 HAD BETTER GRAPHICS THAN POKEMON XY!!! WHAT ABOUT CALL OF DUTY BLACK OPS!? IT WAS A FUCKING 2010 GAME JUST LIKE BLACK AND WHITE AND HAD BETTER GRAPHICS THAN BLACK AND WHITE!!! THE NEW POKEMON LOOK LIKE SHIT!!! If you think Best Wishes was bad, Pokemon XY is WORSE than bad!! You thought Pokemon XY couldn’t top Best Wishes but they somehow did!!

  6. RIP Pokemon
    1996 – 2010/2013

  7. Nintendo is even WORSE than Capcom, Square Enix, ACTIVI$ION, EA, whoever ever everyone HATES, Nintendo is worse than them!!

  8. What if Smash Bros. 4 was a PS4/Xbone game by Capcom, there’d be 65535 rants because they still do DLC (DISC LOCKED CONTENT)!! And if Nintendo does it, who cares!?

  9. THEY’RE JUST TOO BUSY PLAYING SOME SHITTY GAMES ALL DAY LIKE POKEMON XY!! CALL OF DUTY 4 HAS BETTER GRAPHICS THAN POKEMON XY!!! I’M NOT EVEN KIDDING, COD4 IS BETTER THAN XY!!

  10. THEY’RE JUST TOO BUSY PLAYING GHEY ASS POKEMON XY!! CALL OF DUTY 4 HAS BETTER GRAPHICS THAN POKEMON XY!!! I’M NOT EVEN KIDDING, COD4 IS BETTER THAN XY!!

  11. POKEMON XY IS FOR FAGGOTS WHO HAVE NO LIFE!! THE GRAPHICS ARE MORE LIKE A PLAYSTATION 2 GAME!! WHY POKEMON GAMES SHOULD BE MADE FOR PLAYSTATION 2!! IF THEY’RE GONNA MAKE POKEMON XY2, THEY SHOULD JUST RELEASE IT FOR THE PLAYSTATION 2!! FUCK THIS, I’M A GO PLAY PLAYSTATION 2!! AT LEAST IT HAS BETTER GAMES THAN THE 3DS!! If you think Pokemon XY is a good game, you are MENTALLY INFECTED AND HAVE NO LIFE!! You need to go see a Psychotherapist IMMEDIATELY!!

  15. Will you just shut up
    I actually have a both psp and vita as well as a 3ds and personally find the 3ds far more entertaining than both the psp and vita combined and saying that people that play pokemon have no life I think that if anyone has no life its the person sitting on his computer ripping on a company that has nothing to do with the article

    • You didn’t understand my comment!! What I’m SAYING is that people who think the ALL NEW XY Pokemon anime and game is good are mentally infected and have no life!! The 3DS/2DS/Wii U is not Nintendo’s future!! I expect Nintendo to say that on E3!! The 3DS/2DS/Wii U is not our future!!
