From the lovely Dueling Analogs. Finished watching the finale of Heroes Season 3…. not impressed. I’ll leave it at that before someone goes “SPOILER ALERT”. Hmm, i might make a spoiler tag for the blog haha, but I doubt I’d be talking about Heroes all the time.
Today I went out and bought myself a copy of little BIG planet. It is quite an addictive game, such a simple 2d platformer with such immense graphics and customisation squeezed into it. Had to literally crowbar myself out to stop myself from playing it hehe. So yes, cute game and rediculously addictive. I just played with 3 german folks online trying to get through this stage, i nearly won but lost at the end 🙁
I thought I’d post this in light of Halloween since it sort of kinda makes sense… I dunno, I’m not really into Halloween any but whatever haha.
After seeing quite a fair few number of people dressed up as some of my favorite video game characters at the Video Games Live 2008 concert, I decided that I wanted to do this again! During the concert they had mentioned as part of the London Games Festival 2008, there will be a London MCM Expo which will be the host venue for hundreds and perhaps thousands of cosplay folk, all of whom are dressing up as characters from video games, anime characters, cult films and other sci fi and geeky stuff you can think of. Embracing my still warm geekiness after the gig, I decided that this event was one I had to venture into. So yes, sit back and enjoy the freak geek show!
Let’s step away from the crazy indie music scene and into a very small but vibrant music scene. This is for the video game geeks who spent quite a large proportion of their childhood playing video games, because, you know; getting someone from the opposite sex was just too easy :P*. As most of you should hopefully know, video games isn’t just mindless entertainment, there are some games which dive deeper than mere zombie killing or princess saving, some games (such as Final Fantasy) include very awesome storylines as well as in depth characters. The music side of it all does pretty well too, some (I’ll say some, because some games have sucky annoying tunes) of which aren’t just mindless catchy riffs but full on orchestrated pieces that build up a grandular (yup thats a word, honest haha) experience for the gamer. This is where Video Games Live 2008 comes in, a concert for reliving your past time gaming memories by listening to the songs we love and will always remember.
* = yup, just toooooo damn easy haha
Bought a new monitor so I thought I’d show off my desk hehe, it’s a lovely 24inch widescreen monitor, got myself a nice graphics card to compliment it too. Hopefully this will improve my productivity at home.
