If you are interested to work in my global organisation of evil (or like to wear bright yellow jumpsuits), e-mail me. We are still looking for mad scientist and simple minded goons. People with thick german accent prefered.
This one is interesting. It's a collection of jewelry made out of stolen immages of actual jewelry. Or to put it like this, the Designer Duo Mike and Maaike used google image search to find pictures of the worlds most expensive and famous jewelry. The found images where "stolen", doctored and printed onto leather. Hence the collections name "Stolen Jewels" And thanks to the leather used, they are elastic!
So granted, it's not directly connected to video games, but the 16 bit flair can't be denied.
So guys, this is the perfect gift for your retro loving girlfriend. Heck, I whould wear them. But it whould be hard for me to find a matching dress...
Hello fellow Eurotoiders, after a long hiatus the European Shitty Movie Night is back. I know you all waited for this. And by you all I mean Wilbo and GenkiJam, as they are the only ones that ever show up... Moving on.
We thought of something new for this week.
The Weaboo Edition!
For that, we are going to watch the biggest pile of Fanservice ever conceived by man, Rosario + Vampire. The whole "plot" of the show is a vehicle to get the best angle on the panties of every single female character in the show. Good times for all. And there are monsters and stuff. But I was blinded by all those sparkling white pieces of lingerie, so i couldn't really tell you any details.
If you happen to want to join in (WEABOO!), the whole thing is happening (as always) this saturday in ventrillo. Info's on how to get in here:
Joho, my man Wilbo had a Idea we want to try. The European Shitty Movie Night (more like
Wilbo's and n3rd's Shitty Movie Night) is dead, long live the European Shitty Movie Afternoon.
We will start today with Meet the Feebles. All you need to join in is Ventrillo and the
movie (torrent here).
We got a new law in my homecountry. According to this law, Killergames are now illigal to own
for minors. There's no exact definition of Killergames, but who cares. And since I'm no minor,
I can't be really bothered that it's now a little harder for me to get my Call of Duty's and
Halo's. I import anyways.
But what does bother me, is the fact that violent games are now essentially on the same level
as porn, guns, alcohol and smokes. And the "new media", like Websites and Blogs, can now
be shut down too, if they show "material that is harmfull to the youth". Good times.
And all for the sake of those damn politics, who just want to cop out of dealing with the real
issues we have with the youth in this country. Instead they say: "Once we locked away all
those evil video games everything will be fine."
So what next? Do I need to cover the new Call of Duty in a brown bag when I leave the store?
I never was a real fan of the Battlefield franchise. Mainly because when I had a PC, it was
way to crap to play any of the games. And the average player is a 12 year old bastard who
calls you (and your mother) a nigger every 2 seconds. But now we have BF Bad Company.
Single player, hooray. So I gave the demo a try.
Fired it up, nice menu music. So this one is not going to take itself serious. I can digg that.
Ok, let's try the Single Player Mode. Nice, graphics are good too. That doesn't hurt. But
then came the first little doubt.
The auto injector.
Interesting concept. So I can heal myself anytime. It's nothing like the "Halo-Shield",
'cause I have to do it myself everytime. Hmm. That could get tedious. And take away a lot
of the difficulty. But hey, at least it's something new.
On to the first encounter. I can blow up any wall with explosives? Great! But why do the
enemies survive a direct hit from my grenade launcher? Hellooooo, where's my goddamn
splash damage? Oh, whatever.
Moving on. Ok, first death. Almost no loading time for the last save. Nice.
...Wait a minute, I didn't have this weapon when I arrived here. So the game does not
reload, it just respawns me.
Let that sink in.
You respawn in the single player campain. WTF?! That's like the Vita Chambers in
Bioshock, except it makes no fucking sense!
And it turns the game into a joke. It kills any difficulty whatsoever. Why do I choose a
difficulty at the beginning, when it doesn't even matter? Tactics? Who needs that, when you
got infinite lives? Just storm the enemy lines untill they are all dead. Whoopdifuckingdoo.
I hope that you can turn that of in the final game. Sure, it takes a lot of the stress away,
read: It's good for casual gamers (I HATE that word with a passion), but it also kills
the gratification. At least for me.
There's no "YES I DID IT! I'M THE GREATEST!" feeling, like in say Devil May Cry 4, after
beating that last Boss.
It's more like a training session for the multiplayer. Damn. Why does it have to be that
way? Only focusing on multiplayer. Not that I don't like online multiplayer, but it's not
everything. But maybe I'm one of the last few who think so.
