Leave Me Alone Nostalgia: StarTopia

   0
Let me begin by saying, phew! What a week; trying to finish this game up in the midst of thrilling playoff basketball action while having to study for an organic chemistry exam and visiting old high school friends really takes some doing. Thatís summer though! Anyway this blog will be about a recent bout with nostalgia and the resulting experience.



This incident with nostalgia first took place on the 21st, during the supposed Rapture. I wasnít running around telling people to repent for their sins and accept Christ into their lives, rather I was trying to recollect the past events of my life, you know incase the world did end. While I was visiting the C-blogs and reading the various Rapture related blogs, I began to remember my past gaming experiences. There are always the main ones people remember like their first console or first RPG, but there are some experiences that are obscure and go unnoticed unless you dig deep and try to remember that special game you had when you were a kid. This obscure game for me was StarTopia. If you havenít played StarTopia then read on as I attempt to fill you in on this underappreciated PC gem. If you have played it, read on and see if weíre on the same page!

About Hohojirozameone of us since 7:46 PM on 08.31.2009

I never took the time to fill this out because when I first joined I didn't think there was much to talk about...and I still think so!

Cerealy, I'm currently almost done with college and pursuing a career as a veterinarian (yay more school!). Started gaming pretty young with the Genesis and SNES thanks to my mom. I love anything that intrigues me or provides a challenge. I've been into fighting games for the most part, but tend to drop off when people get too...projectile spammy (fist fights anyone?). I also play RPGs, tried some MMOs (Mabinogi?), tried RTS's, played first person shooters (CoD sometimes), and everything else in between.

Loves me some good pixel art and old school gaming now and again.

Watched too many cartoons, and still do. Favorites include classic 90s cartoons (Street Sharks), everything Looney Tunes (Bugs specifically), classic CartoonNetwork and Nickleodien (Dexter's Lab and Hey Arnold) fare, and Animu (Champloo).

Movies are similar to my gaming interests, a little bit of everything. True Grit, zombie flicks, summer flicks, action flicks, comedies, you get the idea.

Music is more geared to Hip-hop and Nujabes type sounds, but also a bit of everything (except Country...).

Interesting Side Note: I'm Brazilian! No I do not go around saying, "BR?" everywhere.

I have a theme song!
Thanks Alphadeus!
