Retro Game craving

I have recently purchased a brand new PS3 (I know very late behind everyone else) and now rather than a craving of new and wonderfully flashy games, I just want to play retro games! I actually blame the PS3 for this as it has a Lemmings theme that reminded me of the wonderful pleasure I had of playing the game as a kid when it first came out. I still remember the sound of the music in the room and the pixel graphics, and have fond memories of it all.
So after 4 days of managing to refrain from playing, I caved and now have the retro game cravings! I want to play the games that made me first fall in love with console and PC games. Those games that you remember as a kid and though can can’t remember the name, you never forget the fun or the characters.

I now am on the hunt for my earthworm jim disc and ‘where in the world is Carmen” game so that I can relive my gaming youth!

So what are your retro games? What was the first game that got you fixed to your computer?

By the way, if you want to play lemmings, you can do it here: http://www.elizium.nu/scripts/lemmings/index.php Have fun!

N00b vs newbie

I have always thought that a N00b and a newbie were the same or a very similar thing, yet I am quickly finding this is not the case.

There seems to be a difference in maturity in the two, and while I thought I was a N00b in terms of being a geek, I am not. Really I am a newbie as I have the unexperience yet strive to push my self.

I am not actually a n00b, who is perceived as annoying and a problem to those in the gaming and geeky world. This seems in fact a term for those who seem to think they are amazing… yet are not!

See I clearly know I am rubbish and still learning alot at everything… so I should be happy about that!

Shame it makes my name now seem silly… I guess it does show how much of a newbie I am at all of this!

A sad farewell till the next sfx weekender

This years sfx weekender was a folly of delights, witty remarks and incredible costumes. It is sad that it has ended, but excitement already, for booking has already begun for number 4.

Having panels with Brian Blessed, Eve meryres, Sylvester Mc Coy and Colin baker does make it harder for the team to plan the awesome event for next years.

Though pointins and their staff were the cause for almost all of the issues, with little the sfx crew could do to stop! One thing is clear, the staff were slow, daft and very rude, and I feel sad that the sfx guys had to deal with them more than us.

The weekend however was incredible, and the laughs had where great.

My biggest issue? The lady dressed as a female 6th doctor, not with our group, who groped my noob. Whoever you are, make sure you don’t do this in future, as I hope the next person has the balls to report you, you sexual fend.

The reason I feel so much about this, is I have been assaulted before, so it brought back memories, but also the trust is broken. In conventions there usually seemed to be an unwritten rule of trust and respect, allowing for people to feel safe in dressing up. I wasn’t even dressed slutty however, and made it clear she was just after boobage!

But, as I must, I will look to the incredible (and avoid her in future)

So bring on mcm expo in May!
