I am not dead. Now back on the air. Too hot to be angry today.
So it seems tumblr have closed their api. Probably old news. Ah well. Took to the official app, now tumblng on the go. not very angry yet, but rest assured, that still happen again soon.
So I’m downloading a recently released demo on my trusty Playstation 3 home entertainment system. It takes awhile, but that’s not really news. The Playstation network has always been a slowpoke compared to the lightning fast Xbox Live one. And then the installation starts. And doesn’t stop. What’s wrong? I have no idea. I’ve now done my workout routine, taken a shower, written an article and will have finished this blog post before the installation is through.
So much for trying out a game real quick before starting the day. What the hell Sony, what is this, why does your console in another magnitude of time. Seriously. In related rants, why is data management on that thing so ridiculously fiddly? Not a good system for people like me who tend to be save file messies. Ah well. Just had to get this out.
God shmod! I want my monkey-man!
I realized why I was somewhat disappointed of the music of Deus Ex: Human Revolution this year. And actually it’s quite simple. DX:HR’s music is not Daft Punks sublime score of Tron Legacy. The two seemed to be pretty similar at first glance. But eventually were not.
Take a listen to this.
And then compare it with the “Theme” from DXHR. And then tell me I was wrong to expect DXHR to go down a similar road musically.
It seems whenever I discuss videogames with regular German folks, it turns out their perspective on the topic is either one of those or both with no middle ground in between. Seriously. Of course there are “mainstream nerds” these days, but for most of the people outside the nerdier spheres of things, whenever I say “I write about videogames” for them it means I spend my time with subject matter like this.
