Evil Dead: Endless Nightmare

You know i have a zombie addiction… Man this game is so cool, although i must admit i’m still getting used to the control settings, i panic when i see a zombie in the periphery and then i end up getting killed by one that pops out in front of me:

I lasted 16 seconds :(

The game is free in the app store. Basically you just run and kill zombies and see how long you can survive with the weapons you have.

Initially your only weapon is your fists, but as you collect blood droplets you can unlock weapons with a bit more kick.

I got a nail gun :D

Who left a barbed wire trench in the middle of the forest? Seriously i keep gravitating towards it, get stuck on it, and it throws off my whole survivalist strategy (yes i’m making excuses for doing so poorly).

What’s your most meters covered/how long have you survived?

Pokemon Go

Yes i know I’m late to be blogging about this (sorry), but as a Pokemon Master it’s still my duty…

Is this a joke?

Is this a joke?

I joined the game late, well maybe like 3 weeks after it launched? I’m currently level 23, just short of 24, but i haven’t been playing for quite some time (mostly because I still don’t have Charizard so I’m pouting about it)…

It’s strange how before the game came out, i’d always think to myself, ”yea, those would be my six Pokemon, they’re my fave, they’re so cool…” but when you actually play the game, your top six are totally not of your choosing (unless you’re willing to work hard, or should i say walk far), but otherwise if you’re just average into the game, your top six will mostly be determined by luck (hatching eggs, being in the right location at the right time).

When the game first launched, we went to the Sydney Opera House on the one Saturday, and literally everyone was consumed by the game – it’s one of those iconic moments, when people are no longer flocking for a selfie at a landmark, but rather to catch something rare…

I did try several times to take the Opera House gym, but its literally impossible, so many people are challenging it, it ends up actually like glitching and kicking you out – too much traffic. I have taken over other less crowded gym locations temporarily.

Is anyone else playing/was playing? I chose the yellow team because i liked the whole instinct/intuition story behind it, then later i learnt my friends all chose blue just because it’s their favourite colour, how annoying.

You found me…

Yes, I’ve been gone for 5 months, i didn’t mean to abandon you my Nerd Knights, but it was not in vain!!! I moved to a new country 5 months ago (now living in Sydney, Australia), and you’ll be proud to know that I’ve been doing my geek duty of catching Pokemon near the Opera House (among other things)…

The geek culture and fandom following here is definitely way higher than it is in Africa, so it’s really awesome to finally find a like-minded community to roam with.

Tentacle Wars

I’ve been playing this game on my phone, it’s creepy but i’m totally loving it! Tentacle Wars takes place inside the body of an alien creature:

Tentacle Wars Game

Basically you are the anti-bodies fighting a war against an infection/ disease within this alien creature (represented by the green and red microbes respectively):

Tentacle Wars Game

Tentacle Wars Game

It is a strategy game. You have to over-power the disease by ‘capturing’ those cells through extending a certain number of tentacles. However, sometimes enemy cells are more powerful than you, and you first have to accumulate neutral (grey) cells to aid your cause:

Sometimes you cannot attack enemy cells outright, because you will be blocked by other neutral cells which you cannot overpower. You have to plan how best to use your cell energy to capture the enemy (some ways are more efficient than others):

There are numerous zones within each level of the game, and as you guessed it – it gets progressively more difficult as you advance.

Merchandise Monday #50

Let’s go back to the 90s with  Star Wars Micro Machines! I know Micro Machines is still making Star Wars merchandise today, but I don’t feel the quality is the same as it was in the 90s:

The helmet cases open up to reveal specific scenes from the Star Wars universe. Some of the Micro Machine characters are so small, but the detail is still pretty good on that scale. Look how cute the little Ewok is below ❤ :

Some machines are bigger and have moving parts. The speeder below can ‘explode’ and disintegrate when you push a button (I think it’s about 4 parts assembled):

It’s my favorite place in the Star Wars universe: Jabba’s Palace! This is so cool, the trapdoor that Luke stands on actually does fall open when Jabba’s throne hits a weighted-lever. Of course the Rancor is waiting to receive Luke in the pit:

The next Micro Machine scene is the garbage compactor on the Death Star. Again, the chute to the garbage area actually opens and the figures can slide down. The walls also actually move to close in on the characters:

Where would we be without our two trusty droids, hmm? Let’s not leave out R2-D2 and C-3PO. Here they are in their escape pod headed for Tatooine:
