There's nothing like reclining back on a long trip home in a car listening to "pretentious art rock" and closing your eyes to look around at all of the beautiful, warm colors as the sun rays hit your eye lids (hopefully you are not the one driving). The video above is a band called Mew, performing the song Special from their latest CD. Mew is a Danish band consisting of three guys who look alike and have names with characters that I don't know how to create on my computer. The equivalent to the null sign in math. Anyways, whenever I return home from college, I like to choose a band to listen to on the way back. Old school. No skipping around the cd or putting the iPod on random. Just like popping in a cassette and singing along. Well this time guess what band I chose. Yea! Color Me Badd. How'd you guess? But still, Mew is amazing to listen to especially if you have a good imagination. Why? I don't know really, you just will. They are a dreamlike, prog, post-rock band with a vocalist. Imagine a toned down Anthony Green. This band is just so infectiously catchy. Although from what I've noticed it is not for everybody. But if you like music, definitely check these dudes out.
Awaiting for the release of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, I've been replaying the whole Metal Gear collection chronologically starting from; Snake Eater, then MG1, MG2, MGS, and finally Sons of Liberty (Unfortunately I don't own a PSP for Portable Ops). However in the middle of this epic journey through the fellowship of the nerd, I managed to drift away during MG2 and started playing Xenogears, now I could write a whole book on the greatness of that RPG but will condense that in another entry some other day. After a short stint with Xenogears, I decided to prepare myself for the closer coming GTA IV, as to MGS4, and went ahead and bought GTA: San Andreas. Finally being 18, I can buy cigarettes and such. Fortunately I don't smoke and bought an M rated game instead.
Now this is a great game and will soon be followed by an even greater installment. But in the midst killing dope fiends for their "chips" and speeding off of cliffs with an Hispanic fireball girlfriend who is screaming in my ear, I drifted off once again. No this entry is not a review of MGS or GTA, those will come later. This is the review of a far more intense game. The World's Hardest Game entitled, The World's Hardest Game.
This addicting game, brought to you by none other thenAddictingGames.com,will get you hooked faster than Peter Pan's nemesis giving away heroin that induces money flying out of beautiful women's bank accounts. The objective of the game is simple. You are a red square and need to get to point A to point B with moving obstacles that will cause an sudden outburst of curse words from your mouth when touched. Prepare to find yourself shouting obscenities during your lecture classes every time you fail. With 30 levels, you could probably defeat the game in a few days if you're determined. But the gameplay isn't the only five star feature. The sound is also grand. With music from some dude named Snayk, the electro, Pnuma Trioish, song will be stuck in your head. The sound effect of a punch when touching an obstacle will also bring back memories of bullies in third grade who picked on you because you knew what the square root of 9 was. Ah, those nostalgic memories of beating up nerds brings me back...
