Syd the Sim A couple of weeks ago I made a small comment about the Sims [cfr. (insert title here)] and that made me look for that CD-rom and insert it once again. My harddisk still had an old neighbourhood peopled by Floydian personnel and I found a little man in a little house listening to the name of Syd Barrett. He was aptly dressed in a madcap costume and the first thing he did, after I had activated his personality, was setting the kitchen on fire.

Pixels imitating life.

The end is near... check http://atagong.com instead...

Celtic Warriors Yesterday I went to a biannual charity meeting in my village after my LA-girl had chained my hands and feet and dragged me over. I am not and will never be a social person and to enter a sport complex filled with 200 people I have never met is rather close to a living nightmare. If Tartarus exists my eternal punishment will be exactly that. But in the end it turned out to be not that bad because actually we knew about a dozen of good doers and after we had said hello to them all the event was almost over...

Killer Mum

The end is near... read http://atagong.com instead!

Last week my ma came to visit me and the first thing she said after she had entered was: “Comb your hair!” I took the order, because that was what it was, as an insult and retorted that as far as I could remember she was in my house that I had bought with my dough and that after 48 years of living it was about time for me to do what I thought was good for me to do. My father grinned inconspicuously and my LA-girl sighed and told her mother-in-law that she had since long given up trying to mess with my hair. Normally they hate each other guts but this doesn’t apply when there is some Atagong bashing to do.

Life is hard for a man who is relentlessly addicted to:
Cycling Manager 4 (Molteni rules!),
Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe (Felix Cars rules!) and, a newcomer that has been burning holes in my harddisk since a couple of weeks,
UFO: Alien Invasion (Atagong’s Green Alien Slime Destruction Team rules!)

Yesterday I spent most of the afternoon trying to figure out where a slimy alien was hiding before I found out that I had been the victim of the stuck person in a game syndrome... (continued at http://atagong.com...)

Pigs Might Fly

Entry 334 posted in: 4. The Pink Thing


Original and complete posting at... http://atagong.com

 

Have you ever seen President Sarkozy on the telly giving a speech? He always thinks he is doing a bloody Hamlet. His performances, because that is what he thinks they are, remind me more of Louis de Funès (or for the non-Francophiles among us: Benny Hill) than Napoleon Bonaparte, another one of those short short-tempered little men with a short fuse who think they can rule the world.

This post contains a fairly well hidden review of the Pink Floyd biography Pigs Might Fly by Mark Blake.

I woke up this morning with a Karen Carpenter tune whistling through my head.
Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?
It is the distinct proof that my brain is slowly alzheiming away. Although it is of course a great song… but not very cool to admit that…

To add insult to injury I found last week exactly the right time to download UFO: Alien Invasion. I had downloaded it before once, over a year ago, but then the game was way too alpha to be enjoyable and it had quickly disappeared from my harddisk. But this time was different…

I am of course on a nostalgia tour here because UFO: Alien Invasion is an open source equal of the classic game XCOM: Enemy Unknown, that was issued around 1993 by Microprose. The game was known under different names such as XCOM: UFO Defense and UFO: Enemy Unknown, depending on the country or the publisher you were buying it from...

Do you like tennis? (ArianeB 5.10 walkthrough [online version])

Entry 331 posted in: d. ArianeB


ArianeB is an adult dating simulator with a lot of different scenarios and outcomes. The story is fairly simple, make a date with Ariane and try to get her in the sack! Of course this sounds easier than it is and that is exactly what makes this game worthwhile. The best way is to experiment with the different situations the game offers and to learn from past mistakes. But for those with a restless mind I will put some walkthroughs for the game on this space. It takes out most of the fun though.

To get to Rebecca's new strip scene (that has replaced the scene from version 5.0) you need to do the following: read the full walkthrough at http://atagong.com.


All ArianeB 5.0 walkthroughs can still be found:

Sandbox of God Recently I have been in my cynical go-get’em-all mode and I want to apologise for that. I blame it on the season but it could of course also be that my bad character is beyond fixing.

The following text (part 1 and 2) is about gameplay for adults. If your legislation forbids to read this under a certain age and if you are under that certain age you are advised to skip the first two entries of this post and to read only part 3, which is about The Sandbox of God...

Franz Ferdinand German radio- and television-administration, die Gebühreneinzugszentrale (GEZ), send several letters to a Mr. Friedrich Schiller with the urgent question to pay his radio- and television-tax. These arrived at a local primary school in Weigsdorf-Köblitz (Saksen) and its principal replied that the German poet, philosopher, historian and dramatist the administration was looking for had been dead for over 200 years. Schiller is world renowned for his Ode an die Freude that was put to music by a certain Mr. Ludwig van Beethoven in his Ninth symphony and that became the official European anthem in 1972.
