April Fool...

Get ready for some crazy news tomorrow becasue April is here :D

Last year we heard stuff such as a Zelda movie, Assassin's Solid, Rock Band for PSP and many more, I wonder what jokes 2009 will bring uo, so What do you expect to hear? :D

Tim Schafer needs help...

While I was checking the latest gaming news yesterday I saw this funny mini game on the doublefine.com website which is called "Host Master and the Conquest of Humor".


It resembles the gameplay of the fine adventure games by LucasArts such as the famous Monkey Island and Sam & Max. In this mini game you have the control over Tim Schafer in a single room, he is in desperate need for some jokes to use at the GDC because he forgot to write new ones :lol:. So your mission is to search the room for some old jokes and then whenever you are ready you exit the door to start the GDC. I managed to find a total of 8 jokes which I presumed are all the ones I could search for and went out, then I've been told that I collected 8 OUT OF 22, :lol: I didn't expect there is a total of 22 jokes in this tinny room :shock:.

If you enjoy this type of gameplay and you are up to the chellenge of finding the 22 jokes then try it out, here is a direct link to the game ;)

Funnily the dude in the game looks exactly the same as Tim Schafer at the GDC, check out the below picture :lol::lol::lol:

Tell me if anyone of you got the 22 jokes ;)

Regards,

So, anyonoe of you who would like to be added to my PS3 friend list please post your ID here, Thanks :D

Cheers,

Poll No.23 + Picture of the day + more stuff...

How long it has been since I posted the last poll, one month I guess :shock: :lol:

Last poll was "What is your favorite Harry Potter movie?" and the result is

As you can see Prisoner of Azkaban is the winner with a total of 5 out of 12 votes, it was a pretty good movie, both Prisoner of Azkaban and Goblet of Fire are my favorites but if I have to choose then I'd go for the later ;). I didn't read the stories of Harry Potter but I hear they are great and are better than the movies so I will try to read them after watching all the movies. Can't really wait for "Half-Blood Prince" in July :D

Enough about Harry Potter and here is a link to the new poll

---------------------------------------------------------

Picture of the day

This is pepper a fictional character by `Artgerm but this image is the result of pepper minipulated in the mind of thali-n

the picture below is the original pepper by Artgerm

SEXY :lol:

I hope my selection was a satisfactory ;)

----------------------------------------------------------

One last thing :D

I know I said before that I created a blog called ilovegames2.blogspot.com but I already deleted that and created an allround blog to contain any subject whether it is game related or not. No change this time :oops: I promise :) I will just stick with this one, tell me if you like the look of it or not?
The url is "http://oln1.blogspot.com" which is pronounced All'nOne :D, is it a good name by the way?
thanks ;)

Regards,

OMG, I'm tagged O.O

My brother tagged me and he is insisting that I write something about myself which is something I haven't done before. I really didn't want to write but what the hell, why not :)

1- I'm a teacher at a high school and I hate my job :lol: but the students like me because they get enjoy talking to me if they findout that we have common interests such as playing videogames or watching anime :lol:

2- The more I get older the more emotional I get, specially while watching emotional movies. The last movie made me shed couple of tears :lol: was Benjamin Button :oops:

3- I totally detest Centipede :o, their shape gives me the shivers and unfortunately we have to see one or couple of them in the house every summer :?

4- My favorite genre of music is jazz which I think is loved by fewer people, anyone of you like jazz?

5- I used to hate rock but playing Guitar Hero made me like rock but mostly I'm into clasic rock.

6- When it comes to super heroes my favorite is Batman.

7- I love anime and my favorite series is "Death Note" which is a must for any anime fan.

8- I remember once in kindergarten I was rushing to the place we gather to eat breakfast and I was running fast without realizing that another student was running straight into my direction and BAM, we hit each others heads, funny that he had a little scratch but I had my forehead stitched :o, the wound was horrible O.O, I really can't imagine how hard his head was LOL

9- I have a friend exactly 1 day yonger than me and we were born at the same hospital :lol:

10- I'm 29 years old and still not married :shock:, you may think so what but in my country we usually get married at the age of 25.

11- I'm too realist.

12- I am a little good at playing the piano and I love playing clasical music, my favorite composer is chopin.

13- I'm provoked easily but I try my best to control my temper :oops:

14- I download a lot of stuff, mainly anime and I use utorrent 24/7 :roll:

15- I'd love to work and live in England and I don't know why :P

Time to TAG YOU :twisted:

But if you've already been tagged, or don't feel like writing just ignore my tag or pass it to someone you like ;) so here are my tags

Thomas-Crown
Colmillios
MorkkiTH
AbyssD
Nightmare-_-

Sorry for writing too much

New blog...

I've created a new blog at www.blogger.com dedicated only for games. I will mostly post there but I won't leave gamespot, I will post some stuff here too and will tell you whenever I post something there along with a link to the post.

My new blog is called "I love games 2" :lol:, I couldn't find a decent name, all were taken. Anyway, here is a link to the blog. You can either check it out from time to time or otherwise I will tell you when I post something there ;)

Banner solution...

Thanks all for commenting on my previous post regarding the new banner and I'm glad you enjoyed the idea of counting the games ;) so I decided to reveal the count and the name of the games here and as they say a picture is worth a thousand words so I decided to paste a picture better than writing the names :D.

Here is a direct link to the picture

Thanks and take care
