Nintendo Rhapsody – ballad of video games we love

This Nintendohemian Rhapsody, as Geeks are sexy and its creators named it, shows a chunk of the history of games we played long ago on Nintendo. First video games were using cards and the TV was almost the entire day occupied with Mario or Shoot the Duck.

We evolved to new super-graphics games, but those old ones will be always a good memory. NFS III was the first game where I saw reflexions on cars and Half Life was the first shooter that had awesome graphics for its day and wasn’t about to kill my 300Mhz AMD processor. Enjoy this rhapsody of Nintendo games!

Saturday geeky presents via Vsauce 3

Vsauce 3 is the channel where geeks feel at home. Video games have inspired an entire culture so they gather all the possible things they can find about video game items and presents and show them in the videos. Such gifts would be nice for each one of your geeky friends.

From their selection I liked the iCEnhancer, a rendering engine that shows realistic cars in GTA IV:

And the tetris lights that light up when touched. Happy geeky Saturday (or Caturday for that matter)>

Medal of Honor: Warfighter is ON

The guys at Gamespot say that there are 5 reasons why you should play Medal of Honor: Warfighter. I will tell you only one: it’s an awesome FPS. Since the first time I played a shooter game form the Medal of Honor series I liked it a LOT. Warfighter has insane graphics and great action.

Frankly the plot is not so important in such fast paces games. You want to simply get in there and wreck the darn place and leave all in flames. Because that game is about fun, shooting, explosions and what not.

Of course, if I were to be asked about Max Payne 3, for example, then I would go more in depth about the plot, the entanglement of scenes and so forth. Of course, Warfighter is more than just shooting, but you get to savor the history behind it when you get to shoot the last bullet in the game. Then you say that it was cool. Can’t wait to get my hands on it and simply blow things up. 😀

Fallout in The Scream Version [epic photo]

fallout-scream-edition-reddit-version

Have you played Fallout? If not, then you have to. Ope world games are my favorite. You build up a complex character, weaponry, relationships and, of course, get to fight many bad guys.

The thing is, you may be the bad guy and you may not know it. The beauty of the game is given by the plot (post apocaliptic world), the insanely big world to explore and, also, nice graphics. In the pic above you can see The Scream, Fallout edition. They nailed it pretty good.
