Game Music Collective's Debut Concert

On September 20, 2017, Game Music Collective (a professional orchestra with over 20 members) had their debut concert in the concert hall (Finlandia hall) of the Finlandia Hall. Through a stroke of luck (meaning, the tickets were nearly...


It's nice to think the mod I made at least twelve years ago had a feature similar to something a reviewer talked about in a new acclaimed game. Even though I'm positive my mod had nothing at all to do with it.

Qtoid is a marketing channel. If it weren't for qtoid, I wouldn't have got Nerf N-Strike for Wii. Plus I got AKI Corp's Ready 2 Rumble Revolution (I hear it's bad) since they became the Style Boutique studio. And Sonic Colours DS just because.


#OkändOnsdag: Scramble (Konami, 1981) is called an influential shmup. At various times, it has been called the first part of the Gradius series. (YT video by MrPopsicle43/World of Longplays)


Going to a video game music concert tomorrow. "The concert features classic works, such as music from Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, Kingdom Hearts, and Halo." It'd help if I had played FF past 6, any KH or any Halo.


I'm not a believer in biorhythms but it's a comforting thought that what has gone down will come back up again even without doing anything. I didn't say helpful, just comforting.


If Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey had its world premiere in 2017 instead of in 1968, how many people would google for what happened in the movie after the viewing?


Fake schooled: Monkey see, monkey do (maths)

It'd be too easy to talk about how I learned English from video games... or despite video games, including one game that set up me the bomb in junior high school. At least Zero Wing (Toaplan, 1989) taught me to not trust all published ...


Trying to force myself to finish Picross 3D: Round 2. 183 done, 22222 points... The feels now: the video should start at about 1:55 or so, up to about 2:10.



I don't have a custom wallpaper, but when I did, I think this was the last one. #Wallpapertoid Sorry for late entry.


With Wii U, I bought many special editions (TMS, SFZ, PZ5, B1+2, ...). With Switch, only the Joycon+Snipperclips pack so far. Why? Because Switch gets games more than once a month.


I feel I'm doing something wrong when Doom's Switch port is the first platform I have that can run it. Not that I imagine I could play it with Joycons' small thumbsticks w/o alternate control scheme.


Okay, New Style Boutique 3 is the best news I got this night. I intend to pick it up and write up my impressions once it's out. And hope NSB4 will be on Switch for CJ's sake.


#AmigaTuneToid I never owned an Amiga, but I hear this game had pretty highly regarded music. For a poor version of the theme, see Megadrive version. EDIT: Sorry, mistyped the tag.


#OkändOnsdag Bosconian (Namco, 1981) is a 360-degree shooter that is said to have been the first arcade game with the continuation screen. Does that make this the first pay-to-win... if it could have been won?


"Nintendo UK has now confirmed the NES mini will return to shops here next summer." http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2017-09-12-nintendo-announces-nes-mini-is-back-in-production


Answers to my 2 truths, 1 lie: True (for maybe 1-2 hours). True (Rings of Power. Never played any others.) Lie (2D Metroids are at best 'meh' to me and M:OM was just fine.)


Two truths, one lie. I have played Dark Souls. I have liked a Naughty Dog game. I find 2D Metroids more fun than Other M.


Since I got my current PC, I've bought a Switch, a N3DS, a PS3 and a Wii U, in reverse order. No wonder I don't game on PC much any longer.


#MondayMusic Lotus III The Ultimate Challenge (Magnetic Fields/Gremlin, 1992) with some extra processing after recording for headphone users, I think.


Watching ST:TNG episode 2 of season 1. Wondering what was Wesley's lot in the mirror universe?


From my backlog: All Star Cheerleader 1+2

All Star Cheerleader 1 and 2 (Gorilla Systems Corp./THQ, 2008/2009) - the other cheerleading games on Wii. Known somewhere as All Star Cheer Squad. They're also the less fun cheerleading games on Wii in my eyes. I didn't know cheerlead...


TFW even CblogRecaps won't mention your cblog that nobody commented on... /fake%20 ;-)

Very much unprofessional writer, don't take anything I write without a truckload of salt.

I've been blocked on Disqus since late July 2015 (apparently Disqus considered my habit of posting what I thought to be relevant links and references as link spamming), so please excuse me for not partaking in the conversation outside posting Cblogs and Qposts.
