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.

LOTRO: TSUHELM Implodes Then Turns Into An Angry Bird

4 Sep

‘I got the poison.
I got the remedy.
I got the pulsating rhythmical remedy.’

‘Poison’ – Prodigy

The Guardian discusses imploding GAMERS: Gamer implosion!

Gamer?

This term has been discussed a lot of late…

Someone who plays games…in the old days I imagine it could be cards (Does one fancy a game of Whist?) or chess…

Then it was Monopoly or Scrabble: horrible vices were propagated: greed and vocabulary.

Now co-opted as ‘computer game player’.

A long, long time ago this meant pubescent boys then demographic shifted to single men and now probably covers anything that can interact with a digital device…

Deep Blue playing chess on a computer (If I am not confused he became a free diver and eventually swam off with dolphins…or was that Deeper Blue!) or …goldfish playing pokemon…but this led to: 2 fish duking it out: FISH PLAY STREETFIGHTER 

So is this the End of days for ‘gamers’ as gaming becomes mainstream?

Let the idiots implode and the next generation will walk over their small, yet messy remains…

‘I got the poison, I got the remedy, I got the poison for your remedy!’

GAMERS will die out in the end…as ‘gaming’ gets more and more mainstream.

I suppose one day it will be as innocuous as TV…although I would say that about many games on mobile platforms already…

NEWS FLASH:

Adult women largest gaming demographic

Full REPORT: HERE

Thanks to Casual Strolling through MMOs for this heads up…great stuff.

GENDERinGAMES(US)

So no more are GAMERS all those sad boys…they are now ADULT WOMEN!

What changed all the boys into women!

OFFICIAL HEALTH SCARE: playing computer games will change your sex! Why? Because that is what the stats say!

So can we finally say that Angry birds is played by angry birds! And is that too offensive?

But that would be a bad joke…cos I could be described as an Angry Old Fart at times… and I am shamed to admit I did dabble with Angry Birds…the Star Wars version…just a little…

Whats in a name…

Inspired by: BIOBREAK, THINKINGPLAY and IHAVETOUCHEDTHESKY

Should I describe how I came up with Tsuhelm…

The Great Wave at Kanagawa Katsushika Hokusai (Japanese, Tokyo (Edo) 1760–1849 Tokyo (Edo))

The Great Wave at Kanagawa – Katsushika Hokusai (Japanese, 1760–1849 Tokyo)

Katsushika Hokusai (Japanese, Tokyo (Edo) 1760–1849 Tokyo (Edo))

One of my all time fav ‘images’  Under the Wave off Kanagawa (Kanagawa oki nami ura), also known as the Great Wave, from the series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji (Fugaku sanjūrokkei)

Tsunami: a huge sea wave caused by a great disturbance under an ocean, as a strong earthquake or volcanic eruption

Jpn < tsu, a port + nami, a wave

WHAT! – ‘tsu‘ doesn’t mean BIG?….Oops!

Some discussion that tsu should be harbor or port…I always though it was literally big wave!

Supposedly the word entered English lexicons in Hawai…I would love to know when it made it into OED but after wasting 30 minutes googling (that entered in June 2006) I gave up looking.

Since Commander Tsunami became ELITE, Tsunami has been my nom-de-jue…obviously this was no problem until I had to start registering online somehow the name had become popular don’t ask me why and suddenly I was not able to use it in its PUREST FORM.

SO for DOFUS I started off with Tsu-kate OR ‘big katana‘ (remember I thought up until today that Tsu was ‘big’…)

In LOTRO I chose Tsu-helm OR ‘big helmet‘! There was a naughty English side to this that demonstrated my mood at the time and continues to this day when I see my header every day! Self-critical and definitely not too serious.

I purposely wandered away from the normal gaming norms for presentation and content as that suits my odd, most would say bizarre, logic at times …so that why you get strong colours (British spellings: I love U…in colour!) and strange pics…

Obviously a winning concoction as the huge follower count of 41 demonstrates!

I LOVE it though…

The most impressive wave of all time could be landing, right now, on an empty beach, somewhere!

‘I got the poison
I got the remedy
I got the poison for the remedy to the poison’

Must get back to LOTRO…Crafting in Bree…er Screenshots are coming soon!
