Dream Job: Co-Owner of Eddie Murphy Museum/Store
About Me: I grew up in the boring old midwest with my best friend Chase. I went to culinary school for 2 semesters, dropped out, engaged in several dumb business moves with Chase (who got his dumbass into harvard) then finally started on our dream job. Our dream job was to create an Eddie Murphy museum, because we were both huge fans of his movies but then Chase decided it would be coolr if it had a store in it, so now it's a store AND museum! It's not done yet, but we have leased a location and are working on it! You can check out our website at theMurphitorium.com.
Oh yeah, I'm also a huge gamer. I have both an Xbox and a PC computer and my fav game is Halo 2. I'm also currently playing Spore and DQ Tycoon, which has actually helped my business management skills alot! lol
So I first heard of DQ Tycoon from here at destructoid and it sounded like a lot of fun. I liked Pizza Tycoon II and other tycoon games with food plus I love Dairy Queen, so I figured "why not?"
Even better, it ran on my terrible computer! The basic idea is like Dinner Dash where you have to help out all the customers as fast as you can. The graphics are pretty corny but will make you want ice cream not corn. There's all kinds of upgrades you can get for your store too so it's more like Dinner Dash but with more management stuff in there too.
The sound and music is pretty boring, so I usually just turn on some f.o.b. on media player and that works fine.
Overall the game is pretty good, on the murphiscale I give it a Shrek the 4th out of 5.
So my last post got a lot of comments, mainly because of my boneheaded room mate Chase. So here's the update. He actually didn't buy it on ebay but on craigslist and the seller isn't willing to cooperate. He's going to go down to the guys place tomorrow and try and talk it out, hopefully I won't be bailing him out of jail (well, I guess he can't cuz we have no money!).
OH and I almost forgot, like I said in our video blog, we finally got our permits! I wish I could scan and show these off cuz they were a pain in the a** to get. I never knew you had to have a permit for so many things. All the prep work is done, now we're just waiting on all the merchindise and we'll be open! Can't wait. We created a little fan club/frequent shopper club for the store, the link for the info on that is http://themurphitorium.com/?p=26
I will try and post a FULL review of DQ Tycoon soon, I'm still using the demo so I'll do the full one as soon as I get the full game.
