I just ate a whole Lindt chocolate bunny!
I was in heaven till I started to feel icky...But I'm OK... ish now....

But it was worth it! Hmmmmmmm...

I'm trying to collect games from companies like Apogee and Epic Megagames, and I recently made an order with Epic Megagames...

Which was quite "epic" I might say! Most sites sell them directly, but Epic Megagames directs you to Epic Classics, which just a mail order form, a SNAIL mail order form!

I was a bit weary so I snail mailed them my questions first with my email in hopes they had an email too, they did, and soon, after asking around a bit in retro gaming forums, I decided to just go for it and make an order...

They had no Paypal, so my only option was Western Union, the postman told me it cost 50€ to send the money, so I wasted a month looking for an alternative, just to find out he was joking! GRRR!!!

I must admit I'm impressed, the delivery was very fast, and I got TWO free games! When ordering these kind of games you usually just get a disk with the game in it, with the instructions in a text files, but they gave a reprint of the original manuals and maps even!

The downside... one of files of the games is corrupt and one of the free games disk isn't even readable... But they are still trying to help...

But i can finally play Jill of the Jungle and ZZT! YAY!

I'm not sure I'm gonna sleep well tonight, full of chocolate and all....



A few days I said I feeling I was no longer an otaku, but after explaining it to some other otaku friends they told me that it normal... With only kiddie anime in my country it's quite understandable I don't anime much lately...

Before I leave, I'm gonna make my first mini bitchy rant...

They other day I saw a new series called "Kid Paddle", a kiddie toon about a gaming geeky kid.... Which had SOO many things wrong with it!!!!
-Kid Paddle?!? The "paddle" was only used on the old Atari! How do you expect a little kid to get the reference? And it's not exactly a show an adult could watch...
-They kept ranting about... B-MOVIES! For heavens sakes! There hasn't been a B-movies on TV, public or private for DECADES! How can a little kid be B-movie fan in a country with no B-movies? Yes, the series was made in Europe.. If it an US series I would understand, but this? Well, actually he seem to watch movies by...
-He downloaded a movie through the internet! Way to go! Show little kids that they can pirate movies and games and that they never have to pay for them again! Geez!
-Of course, he gamed... Games that looked like they were from the 80's and a bit too violent for someone his age...
-The final insult? Abuse of "hip" jargon... They kept using "old" jargon with new ones too... Imagine someone talking like an 80's surfer and a gangtsa rapper in the same phrase! "Yo yo yo! Kid Paddle in the Hiz' ouse! Like, totally gnarly dude!"
