Whew! I can’t believe i made it so far! :))) Thought, the first blog post went live on 10/14/2010 (and got 12 views :)) there could have been many more posts than mere 200, i am not a blogging Terminator spewing 10-20 posts per day, so it really IS a huge number for me :) Thanks you all for reading this blog! I hope we all are having some fun here and I’m not boring you to death, lol :) Okay, there are some stats behind the cut, saved for the generations to come. I really can’t believe that ChickGeekGames.com hit nearly 279 000 views! (more…)
This is the best cat cosplay I’ve ever seen! Here’s the story: the cat’s name is Guagua (“瓜瓜”) and it was Guagua’s birthday celebration for which its owner, a user named toshiya86 from a Chinese blogging service Weibo (to see her page, unfortunately, you have to be registered in Weibo) drew these characters on cardboard.
I personally don’t think that sticking a cat’s head into dozens of small holes in cardboard pieces is the best birthday present ever, but the resulting pictures are awesome nonetheless. Characters and amine included in this awesome “cosplay” – Christine Mi, Dino, Gold Sparkle, Kiki’s Delivery Service, QB, Green Drive, the Old Anchor, Gintama and Naruto.
Gamer Spent REAL $2 500 000 on a virtual property in a “free to play” MMO – the biggest online shopping spree ever?
I guess we all already know that “free to play” games aren’t free at all and are built to lure people into spending hundreds and thousands of dollars on virtual good, but this guy took it on a whole new level. An anonymous player of Entropia Universe by Calipso Games (a total suckage of a game where ALL in-game items are sold for hard cash, i repeat that, ALL) had sealed a deal of spending $2,5 MILLIONS of REAL dollars on 25,000 virtual pieces of land, each sold for $100. Tell me about the biggest shopping spree ever. But, turns out, this may actually be a clever investment move (unless Calipso goes belly up in the nearest future). Could we be facing a beginning of a new era in banking and real estate? (more…)
Hello everyone, today i have a little something for you! This is the first time I’m doing something like this, but it’s cool, i promise. Some time ago Mike Plater of Espada Limited wrote me about classic gaming t-shirts he’s been designing – with PacMan and Pong and cool stuff – and my previous post was about 8bit MMOs, so I thought: hey, with all the nostalgia flowing around… So, here’s the cool stuff: if you get all nostalgic and absolutely can’t live without a “I PWN N00bs” sign on your wide chest, you can get 30% off with “chickgeek” code. “We have seen a rise in competitive gaming, e-sports, and huge gaming titles that touch every part of our community. I wanted to create a line of designs that brought us gamers back to our roots and reminded us of the beginnings we all share in common”, said Mike. More designs under the cut. (more…)
8-bit MMOs. That was bound to happen, sooner or later. Most of the “grown-ups” today were raised on 8bit games made back in 80s and even late 70s, and as they grow older, nostalgia for old games hits a whole generation. And while those kids born into a world of 3D shooters, World of Warcraft and handheld gaming platforms wouldn’t at first understand the earning for outdated, pixilated and primitive graphics, still the world turns around to face the classic-style games. And here they come: massively multiplayer games made in 8-bit 256 color graphics. (more…)
