Benjamin Wimmer3,063Back in 1983 the ZX Spectrum classic *Manic Miner* by _Matthew Smith_ was released. 30 years later, it's the game to be played in the 4th _Retro Gamers Challenge_. h/t to @106168709712720711347 for picking this gem. While the targeted platform is ZX Spectrum, feel free to play it on whatever hardware you want and submit your score. As before, the event-feature is misused to define a deadline, so you can start posting your scores - yes, multiple submissions are welcomed - right away till Sun, Mar 10 (7:00 PM, CET). How to participate in this challenge: ○ Fire up your copy of _Manic Miner_ ○ Grab all the items ○ Jump over all the enemies ○ Clear as many levels as you can ○ Take a photo/snapshot of your score ○ Share your scores with this event ○ Repeat Lastly, although it's an event of the _Retro Gamers Community_ (you can join us here: goo.gl/ttIOe), sharing it with other gamers out there is of course welcomed. Past challenges #1: Tetris (GameBoy) goo.gl/FGTLi  #2: Chuckie Egg (Amstrad CPC) goo.gl/Yqwcl  #3: Time Bandit (Tandy CoCo) goo.gl/3E6pDRetro Gamers Challenge #4: Manic Miner2013-03-10 19:00:0015 
Benjamin Wimmer3,063Es gibt sicher ein paar Wiener *Ghostbusters* Fans da draußen, oder? Ich schmeiß ganz einfach mal einen unverbindlichen *Kino-HIRL*-Termin für nächsten Donnerstag im Wiener _Gartenbaukino_ raus und wer Lust und Laune hat, einfach melden und/oder vorbeischauen. Das Kino ist bekanntermaßen eh groß genug. Beginn ist 21:00, Karten gibt's um €7,50. Ghostbusters @ Gartenbaukino.at2013-02-21 20:30:002 
Benjamin Wimmer3,063With all the snow and ice outside, why not stay inside and join *Retro Gamers Challenge #3*? This time, it was +John Hattan who had the honor to select a game and he came up with the legendary TRS-80 CoCo classic *Time Bandit* (trs-80.org/time-bandit). As before, the event-feature is misused to define a _deadline_, so you can start posting your scores - yes, multiple submissions are welcomed - right away till *Sun, Feb 3 (7:00 PM, CET)*. How to participate in this challenge: ○ Open the CoCo Java Emulator available at haplessgenius.com/mocha/ ○ Click "Setup" > Tab "Bin" and chose the program "Time Bandit" ○ Press "K" to start a new game ○ Arrow keys to move and Space to fire ○ Shoot enemies, steal treasures, collect keys, jump into the teleport fields and clear as many worlds as possible ○ Take a photo/snapshot of your score ○ Share your scores with this event ○ Repeat You can of course also play on your original hardware or any other emulator. Regarding other ports (e.g. for _Amiga_ or _Atari ST_): these ports differ in various aspects, so while I look forward to see screenshots and scores of these versions as well, mixing these and the CoCo won't really be possible. Depending on the number of submissions, there is however a chance to compose a second highscore table :-) Lastly, although it's an event of the Retro Gamers Community (you can join us here: goo.gl/ttIOe) it is defined as a public event, therefore feel free to share and to invite other gamers. _Past challenges_ #1: Tetris (GameBoy) goo.gl/FGTLi  #2: Chuckie Egg (Amstrad CPC) goo.gl/Yqwcl Retro Gamers Challenge #3: Time Bandit2013-02-03 19:00:0010 
Benjamin Wimmer3,063There’s nothing better than starting a new year with a little challenge, right? The game to be played for the *Second Retro Gamers Challenge* was picked by +Jamie Gunn and he opted for *Chuckie Egg* on the _Amstrad CPC_. While the various ports do differ slightly, I would say that all platforms are welcomed although try to go for the _Amstrad CPC_ one if possible. Again, this event is misused to define a *deadline*, so you can start posting your scores - yes, multiple submissions are possible - right away *till Sun, Jan 13 (7:00 PM, CET)*. How to participate in this challenge: ○ Setup your gear (original hardware or emulator) ○ Start a fresh game (Difficulty level 3 on C64) ○ No cheating (cheat codes, use of save-stats) ○ Take a photo/snapshot of your score ○ Share your scores with this event ○ Play again ;-) Lastly, although it's an event of the *Retro Gamers Community* (you can join us here: goo.gl/ttIOe) it is defined as a _public_ event, therefore feel free to share and to invite other gamers. _Past challenges_ #1: Tetris (GameBoy) goo.gl/FGTLiRetro Gamers Challenge #2: Chuckie Egg2013-01-13 19:00:0011

Robert Misner2,172Hey folks, this is a bit of a circle share put together through +Michelle Marie's post today for "give me interesting people to circle."I don't normally do circle shares but I was going through it and adding a few people here or there, and figured I might as well just grab everybody - people were recommending loads of people I already have circled and find interesting.Upon putting it together as it's own circle it looks really good. Just give it a try and pull some people out of it. And if you're not going to grab the whole thing, at least grab:+Sarah Rios +Bliss Morgan +Halfdan Reschat +Linda Lawrey and of course +Michelle Marie herselfThese folks all have "lively" streams loaded with active comment threads.

Max Huijgen8,441Europe calling: the old giant wakes up and calls on its peeps!now that Europe shows up as the largest continent on G+ self awareness goes up and initiatives to get together flourish.It all started this Monday with my request to post your country if you were European. I offered to circle the first 500 who would do so without any obligation to circle back. Result: we needed a part2 as we hit the 500 comments limit.The original post was shared 225 times. You can find it here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/CdhmHGbYjgiPart 2 is still open and can be found here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/NDAhG4fP2a7If you didn´t do so already, post there and as long as I have spots free, I will circle you as I want to see my streams come alive during European hours.There was a shared feeling that it would be great to get some attention from G+ for Europe with official hangouts from the community managers during European times, feature roll-outs from Google no longer restricted to the US, having some central point to share European circles and last but not least the desire to have hangouts without having to burn the midnight oil. To help solve this and get Europeans together on the same page I created +Europeans on G+ It already has three managers out of the community but feel to offer a bit of your time as it must be a community project. Circle the page if you didn´t already do so. The first post can be found here:https://plus.google.com/100160648652252546872/posts/QXAJ1DFma68The community of Europeans responded and we got the following new initiatives:An compilation of the who is who in the EU countries:The Euro 200 Circle by +Euro Maestro Who are the most followed in Europe ? Who have the highest Klout score ? This circle helps to answer those questions. This is sort of a Who's Who list of Europe.https://plus.google.com/107040353898400532534/posts/YPv8bzRwYXDNext the even more exclusive circle of the most followed Europeans from all over Europe as compiled by me thanks to assistance of +CircleCount the best profiler site there is and they happen to be European as well :) The Euro Top 50 Circle: Europeans with the largest follower countNo pages, just people based in geographic Europe who were already famous or got their followers through relentless efforts on G+ https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/QUEP9UT9iVTAn attempt to crowd source the most valuable Europeans on and for G+ by +Gabriel Vasile MAKING A "BEST OF EUROPEANS" GOOGLE+ CIRCLEYou can still cast your votes there.2012-01-26 20:15:0850010012877

Photo stitching made easy

Looks like Microsoft Research's Image Composite Editor is back. After years without even the tiniest update the website and the tool were brought back to life. The GUI update is pure cosmetics but there's now a – quite sloppy and therefore not really recommended – auto completion feature as well as – and that's IMHO a Yay! worth – export options for Photoshop.

Big Box update

Three more titles have been added to my evergrowing video game collection and while I haven't (yet) played any of them, they are still special to me.

Daikatana I've got a copy of Descent to Undermountain on my selves meaning I'm not shy of adding mediocre horrible games and all I know is that Daikatana bombed big time: the game was not only heavily delayed resulting in being outdated before release but its gameplay mechanics and AI routines were a mess too. Being the gaming enthusiast that I am, all that is no reason at all to not giving it a try anyhow. I'll report back soon.

HEDZ I didn't find that much on the net but I do remember that there was quite a fuss about this game when it was first presented. The gameplay idea felt fresh, I'd even say like a true video game meaning that it builds upon a genuine concept only doable as a game. I haven't tried installing it, but I (hopefully) will soon.

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee Well, I've played that one before, or to be precise a demo version. The gfx were stunning and the setting intriguing but it was the game's slow pace that made me skip the full release. Some might say, I've missed out on a true classic; after all, the game spawned a couple of sequels and there's a full blown remake on the way (gog.com/game/oddworld_new_n_tasty)

Didn't know that Jeff Bridges is an enthusiastic photographer and that he has taken snapshots – using his Widelux, a fully mechanical swing-lens panoramic camera – from every movie he has made since '84.

Today, I gave in and got a couple of Dunkin' Donuts for me and my wife.
They're über sweet and kinda artificial but very, very tasty. 

I'll still go for a Powidlkrapfen (goo.gl/IVpoNQ) though.

I haven't listened to a Beck album in ages, kinda lost track after Sea Change and Guero is only a strange memory I'm not even sure having. Weird thing is, that's already closer to me first discovering him back in '94 – jep, Loser, what else, but that got quickly blurred out by the Stone Roses' Love Spreads (youtu.be/ct-qa6SjRZo) released in the same year – than it is to today with him having won another Grammy yesterday.

Anyway, I'll do have some listening to do, new and old stuff, like the one linked below.

Nice.

Check out the #Hovercast VR Menu.  A proof of concept demo as an #interface method for #VR . I like how things are attached to your fingers as you have somewhat decent control and knowledge of where your hands are, even when in a VR environment. Very cool find from the +prosthetic knowledge guys once again :-) Learn more on GitHub: https://github.com/aestheticinteractive/Hovercast-VR-Menu___Nice.

I've been asked a couple of times here on G+ if I've got a (wish)list of games  that I would like to add to my ever growing collection of big box games (goo.gl/H2M1fi and here goo.gl/ssERZC).

Honestly, there's of course a ton of games in my mind that I would be more than happy owning but nope, I don't have a written down list. Well, didn't as I sat down and composed such a list yesterday evening. Well, sort of as it's more of a very rough draft than an exhausting compilation but hey, it's a start :-)

The list can be accessed via the following link:

I've tried to stay realistic in regard of the games' rarity while incorporating my own budget restrictions, hence the split into three different sheets with the last one being a true "wishlist" aka that's never going to happen.
Also, I wrote it down in a single session, so no tweaking or reevaluation has been done yet.___

Let's see how many of them reach triple figures.

I'm curious about the advertised magic smoke FX though.

Off watching the 3rd season's finale of The Killing.
I'm sure it's as stupid as the 2nd season's one but damn I dig the show's mood, pace and roughness.

The third season of The Killing starts this Sunday?!
Last thing I heard was that the show had been cancelled.

Anyway, why isn't it listed on iTunes yet?___Off watching the 3rd season's finale of The Killing.

Hmm... feeling the urge to buy an amiibo but then again I don't know what to do with it. And which one to pick. And if I could stop after getting the first. And there's already two different Marios and Luigis and Peaches and Yoshis and Bowsers and who knows what else will be released over the next weeks/months/years. 

Nope, not gonna become a part of it.

A quick follow up to yesterday's Get Well Soon gig. 

Well, actually, I can't really say anything about Get Well Soon as we left early due to fear of being bored to death by the highly talented – jup, you've read that right, Gropper is top, just listen to his debut album (goo.gl/Bwdk0e) but the latest EP triplet just isn't – folks on stage and getting too scared by all those über-hip folks around us in the audience but what I can say is that attending a Get Well Soon gig always ends up with me buying the support act's records. Or record – yesterday's warm-up band +Vin Blanc / White Wine only got a single LP out but hell, it's a great one and it's on repeat all day long so far. Enjoy.

Oh boy, I just realized that I haven't added a single Big Box game to my collection since September! Good thing though, the following two titles picked up some time ago are without a doubt true classics:

Maniac Mansion II: Day of the Tentacle Well, some would argue that this is the best SCUMM adventure ever released and that it even tops Monkey Island (2) but then again some wouldn't. Me, I don't actually know how many times that I've played through Bernard Bernoulli's second adventure and I'm sure, I'm not gonna stop revisiting it. Not sure how I feel about the upcoming remastered version though.

The art style was and still is spot on – BTW one reason I didn't bother checking the Special Edition of the first two games – and humor and puzzles still fun.

With us having no internet access over the last couple of days (well, we did have our phones, but that's not the same) my wife and I decided to dig out some DVD do some old school movie watching nights. To make things easier we set out to re-watch the Alien series and after revisiting the first three films (in their Director's/Extended/Assembly cut versions) I have to say:

○ the first one is still top notch and even the movie's pacing and timing feel fresh and modern although it's over three and a half decades old.
○ the second one still sucks big time as it's a dumb 80s action flick that aged very, very badly. Then again, it got Biehn and Henriksen.
○ the third one is still my favorite when being watched in its re-cut version. Sure, it's a bumpy pseudo-workprint-cut with a lot of edges but at least it got character and style. And a lot of accents:-)... more »

The forth one is scheduled for today and while I do enjoy Jeunet's take on the Alien universe and the weird characters he put into it, it's kinda off and therefore not really in line with the original trilogy. Tomorrow, we'll watch Prometheus which my wife haven't seen yet and me, I've only seen it once years ago at the movies. Dumb scientists aside – honestly, I haven't had a problem with it because with only super smart folks on screen, we wouldn't have any horror/action/thriller/whatsoever movie at all, right? – I'm really looking forward to watching it again, enjoying all the beautifully framed sets and darkened Icelandic landscapes another time.

Anyway, what's everybody's favorite and why this and not one of the other two/three/four? ___

Quick Wii U update:

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
Based on the bonus levels in Super Mario 3D World this cute looking game should be one of the most polished gems for Wii U right now. Getting it was therefore a no-brainer and I'll grab and share some screenshots later.

Bayonetta & Bayonetta 2
Mind. Blowing. Games. Both of them. If you don't own a Wii U but a PS3 or Xbox 360, grab a copy of the first one.

Master Reboot
Actually, I don't know anything about this game except it's a spaced out first person adventure and was on sale earlier this week.
