Video Games Have Given Us Back Our Faith?

February 27, 2013


Well it seems like a bold statement doesn’t it? They’re games. They tell pretty stories. Who comes off with this bizarre conclusion? Well I draw a lot of this from a lovely book by Joseph Campbell called The Power of Myth, and this particular quote:

 “We can’t have a mythology for a long, long time to come. Things are
changing too fast to become mythologized.”

Sounds simple enough – even if you don’t accept it. Now, where does faith come in?

Does Retro Mean Anything in Gaming Anymore?

July 9, 2012

This weeks video shows a YouTuber who goes by the name of Freddie25, playing a medley  of video game music. Before you say anything, I know, that isn’t very awesome, there are lots of video of video game medley. Freddie25 however, does it with a bit of a twist. He has constructed a medley of Video Game Songs with Lyrics. Freddie25 has taken popular Video Game Songs with Lyrics by artists such as Brentalfloss (any Megaman with Lyrics video and Tetris with Lyrics) and Martin Hagwell (Super Mario RPG Song), and blended them together into a very clever and unique sounding medley.

This is what happened to me when I first saw the video.
