I had a blast this weekend! We went to Gothenburg to go to RSM, a retro game convention and probably as close to nerd heaven on earth you can get! ❤ Tons of games, tons of people and tons of fun! In this post I'm gonna show you what I bought! 😀 I always start saving for RSM the day after the con basically, just alittle here and there to make sure I can go each year. This year I did not go as crazy with the shopping as last year, I had a budget and I only went alittle above it! 😀 Here is what I got:
This was really cool, it’s the press-release version of Fairytale Fights for ps3, and it looks like a book! 😀 I also got a new screen for my Game Boy, a Zelda Iphone shell and A FREE BATMAN! 😀 ❤ Yay! Haha Even though I don’t have a C64 yet I just had to buy these two games, the fronts were just priceless so I had to have them! The I.Ball dude kind of looks like batman right?? I mean the design of him, exept from the fact that he is a ball! He even have the same crooked half smile! And this mermaid was just so….. wow! The look on that poor divers face, pure panic! xD I also got YOSHI SLIPPERS and Rush n’ Attack for nes! ^^ I also found some Vectrex games! The Armor Attack + overlay my sister sneaked off and got for me and then hid in my bags! I was so scared when I found it when I was unpacking later, for a few seconds I thought I had accidentally stolen it! xD Haha! Thank you again sis! <3<3<3<3<3 And here we have the traditional gaming themed head wear I have gotten each year so far on RSM! This year I got a Mario beanie! 😀 I also found inFamous: First Light REALLY cheap! 😀 I added 2 gaming cups to my collection and Tetris coockie cutters! I also bought 2 Sega Megadrive games, Lemmings 2: The Tribes and Zoop! I have no idea what Zoop is, some kind of puzzle game it seems. I was just really drawn to the front! 🙂 I also got some japanese Gameboy games, Hamtaro something, “another random game with a hamster” 1 and 2, Kirby’s Dreamland and something I’m guessing might be a cooking game! xD The awesome Likilato was also at RSM and he was selling games at the Söders Spel & Skivhandel booth! After I did some shopping at his booth I got to choose a game for free in his loot box, I went with Stuart Little 2 for Ps1! Thank you again Likilato! ^^ This year I bought alot of games that I felt was visually beautiful or funny, I took a dive in a Snes box and found alot of cool looking games, the two most beautiful was definetly Romancing Saga 2 and 3! The japanese really have a talent for making stunning game fronts! The game to the right of them I have no idea what it is but it looked cool! xD I also got Tetris, some other “pretty front game” and the game with the boys on the front I bought because Seb said it was fun! 😀 I bought Titan just because the guy on the front was so funny! That facial expression is so awesome! xD And all dressed in what looks like some kind of latex suit! And of course… EXPLOTIONS! This game must be packed with action judging by the front! Haha! xD All these games I got at the retrospel.se booth! If you are swedish check out their online store! 😀 I’m very happy with my shopping this year, I met alot of very nice sellers and got some great deals! Thank you so much! <3<3<3 The cats were very happy when we came home, Gin became a “Gin-sticker” and stayed as close to me as he could until he finally purred me to sleep! That’s why I’m posting this blog post one day late, I had written about half of it when his superpower was too much for me and I just fell asleep! He is a grey fluffy little Jigglypuff! xD I did however manage to try one of my new tea cups before I was in dream land! ^^ Oh! Btw, did you spot all the batmans? He is hiding in every picture :)))
I’m sick AGAIN! (This is ridiculous, stupid malfunctioning immune system) :(( I’m trying to chock my boby with tons of vitamins and anti-cold stuff so I get better asap! I’m really getting sick of beeing… uuumm, well sick! xO
I have been playing alot of Don’t Starve these past few days, it’s so much fun but oh sooooooo frustrating! x( I usually die somewhere between day 30-40 (yeah I’m a noob) and always for some stupid reason too like I don’t have enough wood or grass to make a fire when night hits, or standing to close to an angry beefalo, freezing or overheating… I never die in a cool way, like an epic battle or something like that! Just by making stupid mistakes! I was even killled by a bee one time! xD But hey, since the game is called “Don’t Starve” and I don’t technically die from starvation… that means I’m doing something right….. right??? xD Poor Wilson! I never manage to build something to cool him down with before he dies! x(
Oh and by the way! Look at this Gin-art made by AleaFlight! It’s so awesome, looks just like him! Thank you so much! I love it! 😀 Please check out Alea’s Deviantart to see more of her work! ❤
As some of you who watched my stream on thursday might already have guessed, I am now suuuuper sick! 😦 That stream was like a mini-docomentary on how fast a virus can spread trough the human body! xD So I have been very weak these past few days…
Since I have super high fever and my brain is so full of snot I haven’t really been able to play anything that takes to much energy… So I played The Sims 3 (no I can’t afford Sims 4 yet!) x) So I have been snuggled up in my sofa all day with everything I need around me: tea, sims, cats, juice, paper and alooooot of vitamins! I even ordered a salad to be extra healthy so I’ll get better fast! ^^
My sims family tree is growing slow but steady! I’m still not really used to playing the game with ageing turned on, I get so attached to my sims, I don’t want them to die! 😥 But it’s really interesting to see how much the children inherit both the parents looks! (This is old news, I know! But remember this is the first itme EVER I play sims like this, didn’t even do it in the first game! x)) ) My family is getting quite wealthy if I may say so myself! We own some real estates in town and have 3 homes, one whith I turned into a pool area! 😀 Only the best for my dear little sims! ;D My sims keep getting stuck though in front of house nr 2, really annoying! = P I have to keep reseting them so they won’t starve to death! :O
Oh! Btw! Since I’m still super sick I’ll have to cancel tomorrows stream! =( Sorry guys! I’m sure I’ll get better until tuesday so I’ll see you then! ❤ *lotsa hugs*
Haha! I knew I gained some unnecessary weight (too much gaming and pizza 😉 ) but calling me overweight is a little bit cruel! xD Stupid Wii… Haha! Oh well, one more reason to start exercising for real I guess! I am already trying to integrate exercising as a part of my life, mainly to get more energy (more energy to play video games) and I’m also too much of a cheapskate to buy new clothes xD I’m also planning to cosplay as Laura Croft at Swedens ComiCon in november so it won’t hurt to get a little fit, so I can pull it off! ;D
Me and my honey have been playing the Cat-Mario game (Super Mario 3D World) and we love it! ^^ It’s sooooo cute that you can be a cat! They managed to capture some typical “cat behaviours” too. Like how they wiggle their butts before charging forward! So adorable! xD There was one thing that struck me about the story in the game tho.. The evil Bowser caught all these poor faries in jars.. Mean huh?? But wait.. Doesn’t that sound like someone else we know?? Ring any bells? LINK! xD When he does it it’s TOTALLY ok… But when Bowser does it he is evil and must be stopped! Haha! I just find that a bit funny! I mean those poor faries must have been trapped in there for weeks, months! Or maybe forever if he forgets to let them out after his adventure is over! xD
On another topic, I still haven’t managed to get my stream working 😦 But I might have managed to figure out how to solove it, it may just be a temporary problem, busy twitch servers! If that’s what is causing it it will kind of solove itself, I’ll just have to find a less busy time/day to stream. Or the problem might be that I need a bigger RAM for my computer. I’m gonna look into it some more this week! So for now it will just be the cats watching as I play! xD Happy gaming everyone!
Like the girl I am I do enjoy shopping! ^^ It just tends to get done in the game/electronics section! 😀 So today I came home with some treasures! I been wanting Super Mario 3D World (or the cat-Mario game as I like to call it) for sooooo long so I could not resist! x) And The Sims were on sale so I gave them a new home as well ^^ I’m so exited (read “scared“) to try out my new webcam 😀 Maybe I’ll try it tomorrow! ^^ We’ll see! Now I need to go and hunt some trophies! Here are some photo cat-bloopers for you! See you tomorrow! ^^ *hugs* Did you know that on the cover of Super Mario 3D World Mario is actually cosplaying as my cat Gustaf?? True story! ;D Haha!
I really enjoyed playing the darkness, it was quite relaxing actually to play a ps3 title without trophies! xD And it had a great but dark story… I just finished it! ^^ It really seems like they put alot of thought into making the enviorment in this game, like the grafitti ((I found alot of them in swedish)) Kind of a nice touch by Starbreeze Studios. And another really cool feature that I LOVED is that the tv’s in the game actually show real movies and series! :O Not many people know this about me but I happen to be a BIG fan of old classic movies! (Charlie Chaplin is my favorite) ^^ So It was really cool to flip the channels and see titles like How to Kill a Mockingbird, The Man With The Golden Arm, Popeye and Flash Gordon! They should put this in more games! It was awesome! 😀 But kind of funny if you started thinking about it! Here I am, sitting in my livingroom playing a game… where I sit in a livingroom wathing a movie on the tv… in the game x)) The tv, in the tv… Haha!
Now that I’m done with The Darkness it’s time for a new game! But I think I’ll let the lottery rest this time because I really enjoyed both Dead Rising and The Darkness and I own the 2nd game of both of them so I might as well play them now! ^^ ((Also I need to get me some tropies! It’s been waaay too long since I heard that *pling*! xD I needsssss it!)) But not tonight, I need to go to bed soon cuz I have work early in the morning… So me and the cats are just casually playing some Order Up before bed! ^^ Such a silly but fun cooking game! 😀 Good night everyone and sweet dreams! Or have a great day depending where you are! ^^ *lotsa hugs*
