The EU is About to Destroy The Internet #DeleteArt13

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

This is of urgent importance! Basically, the EU are proposing a law where if you reference or link to anything, you have to pay an extortionate fee through the “link tax”.

I don’t need to say that this will destroy what we love about the internet, and chaos would surely ensue.

More information in the video below by “Computing Forever”:

Please do your part and visit https://saveyourinternet.eu/ and do everything on the site! We can’t let them go through with this!

As Gandhi once said: “First they ignore you, then they mock you, then they fight you, and then you’ll win.”

Then mainstream media have ignored us for so long, then a few years ago, they started to mock us.

Now they’re fighting us…

If we fight together, we will win!

While browsing Reddit, I discovered that some guy in the 1980s made a series of Vlogs, and someone has uploaded all of them to Youtube, and there is a tonne of them!

It’s so strange and fascinating seeing life back in the 80s! Definitely give them a watch!

A kickstarter for a new N64 game!

Friday, March 2nd, 2018

There’s a kickstarter for a new(ish) Nintendo 64 game.

I saw newish, it’s for finishing off a canceled N64 game, but it’ll still be a new release!

I hope to back this for this reason! It’d make a nice conversation piece!

I hope everyone reading this backs this also! This is going to be awesome!

Retro Diary #84 – “I’m great at this game!” *Crashes and loses wheels*

Sunday, February 4th, 2018

On Tuesday, I played some WWE 2K18 with my brother, and lost all matches… it’s getting really frustrating now!


On Thursday, I went to meet up with a friend at Geek Retreat, and we playes some SNES and N64 games.

If I recall correctly, we played some Super Mario All Stars, Street Fighter 2, Killer Instinct, Donkey Kong Country and Starwing on the SNES.

On The Nintendo 64 We played WWF No Mercy, Where we made The Coach, of all wresting personalities, Twisted Edge Snowboarding, which didn’t haave much to it and was mediocre, but was very 90s!

Finally, we played F1 Grand Prix, which was frustrating at first, but we got used to it, and had a blast. I found out that this friend of mind has a fascination with F1 and it’s video games, and seemed very knowledgeable on the subject!

He tried (Well, he didn’t try, he was just bad!) to bash the car as much as he could, and actually lost 2 wheels and front wing!

When I got home, I played some games of WWE 2k18 with my brother, and I finally got the hang of the game and how to work around it’s issues, and finally managed to beat him! …once.


On Friday, my physical copy of Undertale finally arrrived!!!

On Thursday, I met up with a friend of mine, and we played a bunch of board games, including Connect 4, Hunrgy Hungry Hippos and Jenga! We also tried to play Mouse Trap, but it was way too complicated to set up…

 


 

Retro Pick-Ups: The Sims… Life Stories?

Friday, January 26th, 2018

I was hanging out with a friend yesterday, and we decided to browse CEX, and I found this particular game that sparked my interest:

009

The Sims… Life Stories? What the heck is that? Well, from what I gathered from the back, it’s basically the Sims 2 with a Story mode… that actually sounds pretty awesome! So I bought it! …so yeah…
