Hey! I'm a 24 years old man and I'm living in Greece. Video games aren't banned in Greece.
Here's another update to my blog description.
Hi, I'm Marioland and I'm a gamer for a long long time. Greece sucks in general. I'm still practically unemployed. We have a VAT rate at 24% for everything except milk and the cost of living vs the salaries are so unequal, that it is needed to have two jobs in order to run your own house. We are the generation that grew up and stays in parents' basements.
My angst for the lame gamers in Greece is now silenced. Everybody plays as they want. I don't care. I have enough friends to play with so, random matches are a stranger to me.
Younger gamers still can't afford to READ the solution for a game. Let alone play it themselves.
And, yeah. Somehow I feel happy. Also, I kinda like gaming on iDevices, as long as it's not an iPhone.
I am growing old to the gaming journalism, but I still count my self as a newcomer. I contribute to a greek gaming site called Game 2.0 where I post news, reviews and editorials. It's all in Greek so, it will be kinda Greek to you.
I still believe that gaming journalism is a harsh place. Everything you do gets a lot of negative attention (that's kinda good in a cynical point of view). But, now I know more of the people in other sites, I could see that some of them are actually good people.
Anyways, I own a DSi, a PSP, an Xbox 360, a Wii and an iPod Touch 4G 32GB. Feel free to ask me for friendship on these platforms. It would be nice to get my ass handed to me by someone from Dtoid.
OK just tell me. WHO THOUGHT OF THIS SHITTY ADVERTISEMENT?
I found this on Dtoid today. I totally understand that the AD server (whoever this is) that provides Dtoid with ads, looks up our IP and sends us the corresponding advertisements for the country that we are accessing the site.
But this one is the real shit. The creators of this little ad have violated one basic rule of advertising online: It has sound. And an irritating one too!
Why do I have to listen to punches every four seconds? Can't I see Dtoid listening to my own music or complete silence? WHY OH WHY THEY PUT FUCKING AUDIO IN THOSE THINGS.
Please, if you are from that ad company, go back and mute this horrendous ad that hurt both the advertised site and the site that this piece of shit appears randomly. It's not difficult to supervise and change some of them. JUST DO IT!
