LOTRO: BOWIE!

11 Jan

BOWIELOTRO.jpg

Ha ha ha, hee hee hee
“I’m a laughing gnome and you don’t catch me”
Ha ha ha, hee hee hee
“I’m a laughing gnome and you can’t catch me”
Said the laughing gnome

Laughing Gnome should be inserted into GAME..er or maybe not!

David Bowie passed today, more than an iconic musician… a poet!

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Tom’s a junkie
Strung out in heaven’s high
Hitting an all-time low

And:

Blackstar:

Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried

And finally this space oddity:

Major Tom has left his capsule
Float on in your most peculiar way
There is nothing we can do

GAMING: Yo, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want!

10 Aug

Or no I wont, cos I don’t really know what I really really want!

spice girls

And most GAMERS don’t either…

Great post by BRAX on Gaming Conversations.

and related piece by Syl on Green is the new Green.

http://mmogypsy.com/2013/09/green-is-the-new-green-why-none-of-this-really-matters-but-its-fun-all-the-same.html

SO WHAT DO GAMERS WANT?

It’s like watching your favourite movie ever, when you were 12… again 20 years later and finding it banal!

But we are human beings and have the most amazingly complex set of emotional and psychological sliders in our heads that I think enable us to enjoy stuff and different moments in different ways. Being consistent and marketing games at such a complex audience is impossible. Only the brave and foolhardy persist…

I have always said originality, fun and passion from the game maker is always appreciated much more than anything else… I may not like your game but I will hi five your spirit… And you never know, tomorrow my head, may, more likely than not, be somewhere else and those sliders may have realigned somehow and I find myself having fun in your game.

Thanks fools… this song is dedicated to you!

Yo, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want, 

So tell me what you want, what you really really want,
I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want,
So tell me what you want, what you really really want,
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna really really really wanna zigazig ha.

If you want A future forget THE past,
If you wanna TO get GAMING better make it fast,
Now don’t go wasting precious GAME time,
Get your act together IT WILL be just fine

I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want,
So tell me what you want, what you really really want,
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna really really really wanna zigazig ha.

If you wanna be A GAMER, you gotta get with my ONLINE friends (gotta get with my friends)
Make it last forever GAMING never ends,
If you wanna be A GAMER, you have got to give,
Taking is too easy, but that’s the way it is.

What do you think about that now you know how IT IS,
Say you can handle GAMES are you for real,
I won’t be hasty, I’ll give IT A try
If ITS REALLY bugGY then I’ll say goodbye.

Yo I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want,
So tell me what you want, what you really really want,
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna really
really really wanna zigazig ha.

If you wanna be A GAMER, you gotta get with my ONLINE friends (gotta get with my friends)
Make it last forever GAMING never ends,
If you wanna be A GAMER, you have got to give,
Taking is too easy, but that’s the way it is.

So here’s a story from A to Z, you wanna get GAMING you gotta listen carefully,
We got ALL GENRES in the place who likes to WAVE it in your face,
SUBSCRIPTION GAMES R NOT FOR FREE
WHILE F2P doesn’t NORMALLY come for free!
AS FOR FUN JUST WAIT AND SEE

Slam your CONTROLLER down and wind it all around
Slam your CONTROLLER down and wind it all around.

If you wanna be A GAMER, you gotta get with my ONLINE friends (gotta get with my friends)
Make it last forever GAMING never ends,
If you wanna be A GAMER, you have got to give,
Taking is too easy, but that’s the way it is.
If you wanna be A GAMER, you gotta, you gotta, you gotta,
you gotta, you gotta, slam, slam, slam, slam

Slam your CONTROLLER down and wind it all around.
Slam your CONTROLLER down and wind it all around (uh uh).
Slam your CONTROLLER down and wind it all around.
Slam your CONTROLLER down zigazig ah

If you wanna be A GAMER.

LOTRO: Who is Mr. Mysterious! It’s a Mystery!

20 Jul

Tsukuld actually almost wrapped up Thornhope and Entwash Vale…almost:

ScreenShot00049

I found Mysterious Old Man surrounded by dead smoking bodies, he sends you to kill a Captain Zan in Thrug-unur (goblin camp). Now these little gobs and wargs are quite tough and Tsukuld had to be careful not to attract too much attention to him, I wandered to the center of the camp hoping to find Zan to be disappointed, he is on the periphery… hiding in a tent, he came out of the tent and starting singing and dancing:

Captain Zan I am goblin not a man…
Wham! Bam! I am not a man!
I am Captain Zan, a goblin!
Lets do the Zan Wham rap
Wham! Bam! Bang for zang!
You cant tell me that I’m not a man.
Do! You! Enjoy what you do?
If not… Just Stop!
Don’t stay there and rot!
Enjoy what you do!
I do, I bang, I zang!
Cos I be Captain Zan!
And now I kill ya!

Of course he got burnt to a crisp by Tsukuld…

So warg teeth pulled and goblins killed for the landscape quests from the camp and Tsukuld headed back to My Mystery!

And this guy is witty! After wrapping up the ‘FANGS A MILLION!’ quest he say, “…Nevertheless they prove that you have either slain a number of Wargs or that there are now a great many toothless Wargs on the loose.” (LOTRO writer(s) rep points heading your way!)

Almost done, almost level 85, but time for work…

Who is this mysterious old man? It’s a mystery

Stay tuned…

Jamiroquai’s ‘Deeper Underground’

I myself continue to dig my self in deeper into my LOTRO drought…6 days and still I have not supped at the fountain of gameplay!

LOTRO: Dali for a DAY: Lollipop!

5 May

lolipop

From one piece of information can come a whole surreal post:

200px-Chupa-chups.svg

The logo above was designed by Dali! 

ChupaChups

‘Chupa Chups is a popular Spanish brand of lollipop and other confectionery sold in over 150 countries around the world. The brand was founded in 1958, and is currently owned by the Italian multinational corporation Perfetti Van Melle. The name of the brand comes from the Spanish verb chupar, meaning “to lick or to suck”’

‘The Chupa Chups logo was designed in 1969 by artist Salvador Dalí’

‘Its easy, its so easy, like taking candy from a baby!’

LOTRO game play?

Pink Floyd – ‘Candy and a Current Bun’

Odd psychedelia:

‘Ice cream, taste good in the afternoon
Ice cream, taste good if you eat it soon’

To obvious LOTRO reference:

‘Go buy, candy and a currant bun
I like, to see you run
Like that……’

The hobbit run animations, surely!

 

 

LOTRO: Tower of Behemoth

21 Apr

behemoth

U16 will be adding pet cats…

Not Behemoth from ‘Master and Margarita’  «Ма́стер и Маргари́та» by Mikhail Bulgakov.

‘Woland addressed Margarita, ‘I present to you my retinue. This one who is playing the fool is the cat Behemoth…’

Or a Behemoth pet of biblical proportions either: from JOB 40:15-24

‘Look at Behemoth,
which I made along with you
and which feeds on grass like an ox.
What strength it has in its loins,
what power in the muscles of its belly!
Its tail sways like a cedar;
the sinews of its thighs are close-knit.
Its bones are tubes of bronze,
its limbs like rods of iron.’

Or  the Behemoth that appears in John Milton’s Paradise Lost (Book VII 470–472):

‘Scarce from his mould
Behemoth biggest born of earth upheaved
His vastness: Fleeced the flocks and bleating rose’

CAT – Tsu

‘Cosmetic cat, maybe.
Crappy cat, could be.
Cosmic cat, should be.
Fat Freddy’s cat, wont be!’

ffct

 

If I ever do get a pet cat I will have to call it ‘Behemoth’…

LOTRO: Stairways to Heaven!

17 Apr

RelativityJuly 1953Woodcut28.2x29.4cm

Led Zeppelin ‘Stairway to Heaven’

‘There’s a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.
 
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.
 
And it’s whispered that soon, if we all call the tune,
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long,
And the forests will echo with laughter.’

TURBINE are you playing the pipes? Will we soon be laughing?
