Hi there e-ones.

Most of us gamers need food in order to survive. “Eat” is vital  to continue alive. Logically we wanna be alive to play more and more awesome videogames. The problem is, food came from a source of energy or health all the way to be a controller-greasier. Nothing is nastier than a controller with disgusting food thingies all over it.

Well,  I’m going to share with you my TOP 5 videogame foods. Foods that give you the energy you need for that 18 hour Metroid marathon without turnin’ your controller into a total-mess.

Here we go!

 

#5 – Pringles

The variety of flavors is quite amazing

#4 – Lambertz Chocolate-Pretzels

Delicious Teutonic-goodie

#3 – Pizza-Rolls

 

That is a must. Practical and tasty

 

 

#2 – Home-made pasta

 

That’s what you need for gaming-marathons

 

 

#1 – Good’n old home-made Sandwich

 

Perfection

 

 

If you got a favorite gaming-food aswell, don’t be shy! Share with us!

Happy eating! Say no to greasing-controllers!

“Over the past week, large areas of Australia’s eastern seaboard have been ravaged by floods.Billions of dollars worth of damage has been done, and sitting quietly amidst that tally is this man’s retro gaming hardware collection.

Aussie collector NFG’s house in Queensland was among those affected, flood waters getting into his home and destroying many of his personal belongings. Among those belongings was an amazing collection of retro gaming hardware, once a glittering array of the medium’s past, now a worthless pile of mud-soaked plastic and chipboards (and rare Nintendo hanafuda cards).

PC-Engines, old Sega consoles, Neo Geos, Spectrums, FM Town Martys, old Nintendo Game & Watch handhelds…all gone. You can check out the damage in the gallery below.

The floods so far have cost twenty lives, with grave fears for dozens more still reported missing. To give you an idea of the scale of the disaster, late last week the total area of the state of Queensland lying underwater was larger than that of Germany and France put together.”

 

Damn. That was terrible. If you have got a strong heart and stomach, check the photos out here.

Awesome Indie-Games #1

G’morning Earthlings;
How are you doing today? I hope your thumbs are sore from all the gamin’ you’re getting! 😀

Anyway, I do love “Indie Games“. And as you may noticed, I do love series aswell. This series will cover those Independent video game development which basically is the process of creating video games without the financial support of a video game publisher. For you who don’t know much of that, Minecraft is an Indie-Game. It’s actually the most successful Indie-Game in the existence, and has sold over 1 million copies. Amazing, huh? Oh, you don’t know what-the-heck Minecraft is? Oh, you’re living under a rock then, buddy. A rock not worth livin’ under.
Well, another example of a famous Indie-Game is the “The Humble Indie Bundle“. This one has an interesting feature, being “Pay what you want” for the Bundle. Even though I, you, we could get those games for free on some Torrent website, it’s great to be able to support’em. They work hard on their stuff and deserve recognition, for sure. You’ll see how few bucks can give you almost endless fun. You can get more into that here and sure, Google is your friend if you wanna really go deep into the subject. I totally recommend you doin’ so.

But well, I am not here to talk’bout Minecraft nor Indie-Games as a whole. I briefly explain the reasons for me to like’em, gave you some examples and all, but the best comes for last.

I wanna recommend to you guys a game I stumbled across last week and I find it addicting and awesome. It has a delicious retro-feel’n look to it aswell as a recognizable graphics-style, right from the ZX-Spectrum, MSX and all those type of computers, which were the precursors of Isometric-adventure-games, btw.

The plot is consistent and grabs you almost instantly. The game is inventive, and really rewards you for exploring. As the developer briefly explains;

In the 13th century, the Cathars, who preach about good Christian beliefs, were being expelled by the Catholic Church out of the Languedoc region in France.
One of them, called Jean Raymond, found an old church in which to hide, not knowing that beneath its ruins lay buried an ancient evil.

Oh, believe me, this simple plot grabs you and don’t let go.

Anyhow, I’d love to give you more details of the game, but I gave it away too much already. I don’t want to ruin your gaming-experience, I want it to be as spoiler-free as possible. If you are interested in playing the game, and I don’t know why you shouldn’t, download it and know more about the developers and all that good stuff here. He also made another games, this time a spaceship-shooter called “Hydorah”, which is equally awesome. If you like good retro-style-games, wait no further. Play’em, you won’t regret it.

Cheers and good gaming!

 

 

Heya Earth-Citizens.

Finally, after a lot of expeculation, the new Nintendo’s portable videogame-system is seen showing what it’s capable of. There’re two games being shown at the “2011’s Nintendo World Exhibition” and honestly, it looks great.

Nintendo knows their stuff and knows how to please their consumers (most of the time, at least) betting on retrieve the classics, such as Zelda – Ocarina of Time, and I am pretty sure there will be more remakes to come on the 3DS in the future. This approach was already been seen with the Nintendo Wii, in which lately has been hittin’ hard on the “Nostalgia Factor” and well, it has been working pretty well.

Donkey Kong Returns was great! Thanks Nintendo!

But enough talk. Let’s see the new “Mario Kart” for the Nintendo 3DS aswell as the previously mentioned “Zelda – Ocarina of Time” Remake. See for yourself;

and…

The most exciting thing, to me, is that I’ll be able to buy a videogame console on it’s launch-day. I’ve never done that, if I remember correctly. That will be pure awesomeness. Seems like they mastered the “3D-effect without using the glasses thingie”, so I can’t wait to have my hands on one of these.

Nonetheless, I hope you liked it. Don’t be shy and share you opinion towards the Nintendo 3DS matter. You loved it? You hated it?. I’d like to know, that’d be great.

Regards.

All there’s to say’bout it. Enjoy.

Valhalla!

Hi there again, travelers.

How most of you may know, I do love medieval-stuff and winter. I also like of all sorts of table-top games, especially Warhammer. It’s a fantastic game, I highly recommend you get into it to know what it’s about. But I tell you right away, it’s about epic awesomeness.

The thing is, how about combining a Medieval-looking cabin on the mountains, Winter, Warhammer, good food and forest-walking? That’s the heart-attack combo to me, to be honest with you. Well, it isn’t a dream or a psicodelic LSD effect fortunately, it is real. And will happen soon. Well, if you are lucky enough to go there, wait no further. Here’s the information you need to know’bout this unprecedented event;

Here you can find specific information and well, just relax and…enjoy the view, e-buddy..

 

 

 
I really wish I could be part of it. But well, you cannot get all you want, right?   😀

Yes!

An unreleased “Alien” game made by Square in 1987? Hell Yeah! Even after 24 years years, the almighty Famicom is still a smile-maker, enough said. After all these years it still surprises me. Seriously. Check the whole article through my personal web-worm-hole here. You can watch the video there aswell!

Hope you like it, and most importantly, give it a try! Play it! You are about to experience a unreleased 24 years-old prototype game!

Exciting? No doubt’bout that! Happy Gaming, everyone.

Leo signing out to play more of the game.

Ok, I gotta be honest with you guys…

I’ve lied to you. In fact, I did! Sorry’bout the recklessness I had with the Blog. The thing is, I got busy. I mean, ridiculously busy. That sounds like an excuse and that’s because…it is an cheap-ass excuse!

Well, anyway, I’m on vacation now and this year will be really interesting to me, that’s for sure. I manage to organize my time a little better and all that, so I’ll be giving the attention and work the Blog deserves.

Mind you, I had a quite astonishing number of e-mails from people asking (and cursing me) “Why I am such a lazy bastard who do not update the blog”, so yeah. Thanks. Oh, the one I liked the best was;

“You’re a fucking piece of smelly-poop if you do not update the blog, bitch. Thank you.”

Pure awesomeness! Anyhow, I am truly back, adorable e-ones. I’ll be start to posting normally by tomorrow with the “Random Video of the Week” post, which will be…as random as any other one..

Regards!
