SUCH GFX

I’m back baby, back from the land of the US of A! I ate far too many pizza slices, walked my poor feet into submission, and drove a car on the wrong side of the road – man that was confusing as hell. I enjoyed my time abroad but man am I glad to be back… there is so much Dota to be played!

Also, it happens to be Thursday which means I get to ramble on about some ancient title. Today’s game isn’t some old-school shooter, or even a platformer. It’s Striker – the very first football simulator I gave many hours to.

There was something addictive about it. It had a ton of teams (no South Africa unfortunately, meaning I always played with my backup – Portugal) and a variety of game modes to try out.

As a kid, I was only allowed to play games during holidays or over the weekend. I remember counting down the days to Friday so I could get lost in some SPERTS! I’ve definitely changed, I don’t even play Fifa anymore. Striker is different though – it’s actually fun! #Shotsfired

Don’t believe me? See for yourself:

Ok what the hell are the buttons? I just lost my first 2 minute game 8-0!

      Sword of Omens is a close second after Lightsabers for me.

        I’d rather have the Sword of Power thank you very much! Though I would not mind giving Skeletor’s Havoc Staff a twirl or two…

          Even better, though it might be a little big. I mean I’m pretty sure I can swing a broadsword like AB does a cricket bat.

            Haha. Yes. The average Claymore was 1.4m long and 2.5kgs. Not quite easy to wield.

        I’d like to see them do that the other way around.

          It’s like they say when you fight Tyson. He hits you and you have a broken jaw. You block when he hits you, you have a broken arm and jaw.

    Random recommendation alert: Have you guys heard of groupees.com? It’s kinda like Humble Bundle, but a lot more indies are involved. I only found it recently so I might just be delayed. Check it out. I tell you this partly because I care about you guys, but 99% because I want you to buy the epic music bundle. I need those last two stretch goals!

        I’m not sure, I kept seeing these really badly photoshopped pics of him in the States. So figured he went to the Vale and got locked in Geoff’s basement again.
