Ab sofort gibt’s hier jetzt also all den Kram, für den mir mein “normaler” Blog zu schade ist, der aber dann doch wieder zu toll ist um bei Twitter & Facebook unterzugehen. Was soviel heißt wie: Bilder, Kleinkram, sonstiges Zeug. Die Idee, hier eine (simplere) Zweitversion meines WordPress-Blogs zu bieten war zwar gut, aber der Arbeitsaufwand lohnt nicht wenn es dann...
Does anyone read this blog?
It’s a serious question. Does anyone actually really read this here? If so, do me a favour and leave a comment (here, on twitter or facebook). I’m trying to find out if this “have a second blog in english” is worth the work I’m putting into this. Otherwise I thought about switching this thing into an “random stuff” blog, like for pictures and stuff. So,...
52 Games - Speed
Topic no. 6 is out and I figured: Everyone seems to think that Speed is the same as fast. But why is that? Indeed, it’s understandable that most of us think about fast action, games, which are about goevenfaster. Breaking through the sound barrier in Xtreme-G 2 was pretty fantastic on the N64, get all the goals within the timelimit in Hanger, the first area of the very first Tony Hawk, or...
52 Games - Challenge
A few word at the start: This time the topic was “Prüfung”. I translated it with challenge, but you can also translate it with test or exam. Decide on your own if this entry fits or if it doesn’t. Anyway, this topic was actually a good challenge. Last week I complained about the too-easy topics so far, and now this one let me think for quite some time what to write about....
52 Games - Minimalism
Just when I saw this weeks topic I knew which game I want to write about. No big words this time, it’s Wario Ware Inc. - Minigame Mania (Gameboy Advance) This was a complete spontaneous buy, back in 2003 when it was released. Look kind of weird, I had to much money, just give it a try. And it became one of the most weirdest (yet good) experiences I ever had. In this minigame -...
52 Games - Nature
This time it was pretty simple, as soons as I saw this weeks topic I knew which game I wanted to talk about. But first: I’m ashamed. I never finished the game I’m going to write this entry about. Which is something I need to change, so, thanks, blog project, for reminding me about it. Without any more words, this time it is: Okami In form of a white wolf you play the godness of...
52 Games - Cold
Round 2 starts with the topic “cold”. Right from the start I thought about a game, but then I decided to think it over anyway. I guess every Jump’n Run the last 500 years had somehow somewhere something related to snow and ice, there’s a bunch of snowboard games - boring. The reinterpretation of the first Silent Hill, Shattered Memories, came to my mind, also D2 for the...
