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

There are definitely too few postings covering the new Inbox in my stream today, so let's fix that with a short what's the fuzz all about post from yours truly – And before anybody asks, no, I don't have any invites to share (yet).

In the album below, find screenshots from the web version and the (Android) app. Mind, that I haven't gone full Inbox yet, so things aren't as ordered as they should be and my labeling system definitely needs a revision to fully blossom with the new view on my mails.

Noooooo! Combo Breaker! [1]

Kidding, here's my first thoughts on Inbox after clicking around for a couple of minutes:

○ Good to see that Reminders finally have a dedicated spot outside of Google Now
○ Love the compose button with my most frequent fellows popping up
○ Not really familiar with those bundles yet, but I do see the potential here

Anyway, I'm off to bed now, but I'll share screenshots and some more insights tomorrow (evening?).
Also, I haven't spotted how to share invites yet, but I'll of course share them too when available tomorrow :-)

With ello already being forgotton, let's all give the next competitor on the social media market a spin: tsū

Here's my "invitation url": tsu.co/BenjaminWimmer

Instead of ello's b/w non-interface, tsū offers big (and tiny) buttons painted in candy colors and at least a handful of useful features. It's still a bit crude but charming and it even does have a touch of the good old G+ early beta vibe to it.
Monetization? Nah, not seeing it as spammers will soon be flooding the network if there's the tiniest chance making a quick buck.

Anyway, what I've seen so far:
○ No circles, but also not public-only like ello either; it's just public or friends
○ Visibility can be changed at anytime for any post
○ No editing of published posts and comments
○ No elaborate text formatting but a title can beadded to ea... more »

○ Hashtags are supported
○ No permalinks for the single posts?!

A quick tip for sharing you G+ profile link (as I've seen all variants of it over at ello.co):

○ plus.google.com/u/0/117501271892858907275
○ plus.google.com/u/0/+BenjaminWimmer
○ plus.google.com/+BenjaminWimmer
○ google.com/+BenjaminWimmer

Jup, those are all working links and they do all link to the very same page here on G+. For sharing, I'd say either use the third (if you wanna emphasize that it's G+ you're linking to) or the last (and shortest) one. The other two are just plain ugly :-)

This just came up on my Play Music radio and now I'm all in for re-watching 23 (imdb.com/title/tt0126765) – which I shockingly haven't watched in ages.

Not sure if there's an international version of it, but here's the German trailer: youtu.be/FgB3S2ZlsQw

Uh! Disney's Black Hole is available via Netflix here in AT.

While it is certainly not the best movie around, it does bring back childhood memories like, we begged our uncle to record it for us so we could watch it over and over again. Also, "record it" as in my uncle was the only one in our family who owned a VCR back in the 80s and please note, we're talking about a cutting edge Video 2000 system here.

Also, the movie is a strange mix of a children's film and more mature elements, like the haunting James Bond like title track or the whole finale. Very exciting for us pre-teen kids :-)

All in all, good stuff when consumed with some nostalgia on top of it.

I have started reading Prophet (the first TPB) and instantly fell for it: the stories – or better, the rough story concepts – are irritating and confusing but fresh; the (changing) art style full of details while being simply beautiful.

Has anybody else read this series?

OK, here we go, 16min of Bayonetta 2 which means playing through the whole demo which was released yesterday.

I haven't played the first Bayonetta (but I will soon, as it's being re-released on Wii U later this month), but I've played other titles developed by Platinum Games like their infamous ultra-brutal Wii game MadWorld [1] and the more recent child-friendly-but-at-the-same-time-totally-insane Wonderful 101 [2].

Anyway, Bayonetta looks like the lovechild of those two games: over-the-top shiny gfx mixed with gorey finishing torture moves and jumpling from climax to climax. 

In short, it will definitely be added to my collection when it hits the stores on 24th October.

IIRC it wasn't until a year or so after joining G+ that I've blocked my first follower; on ello, it happened after only four(!) days. 

PS: Also, very hip but not so usable UI for muting/blocking. Who would cancel while in rage/mute/block-mode anyway, right? Duh!
(To be fair, hitting the ESC key works, but there's no clue whatsoever that there's another option than Mute and Block)

A couple of weeks months ago, it was a song by Garish (youtu.be/odqSQ3kYGIY) that was played every single time I turned on +radio FM4. Right now, the same is happening with the following song by Velojet.
For the upcoming weeks, how about giving GusGus some extra airplay (youtu.be/--wYCa-QO60)?

PS: Speaking of GusGus, youtu.be/K5cjbQHnJyc should definitely have more than just 3k views

First of all, I really like +Jim Sterling and his show Jimquisition [1] and that's not only due to Danny Baranowsky's awesome track Sacrificial from The Binding of Isaac that's being played in the background or Sterling's charming accent BUT him making a valid point in (almost) every single episode. I also wanted to share some of his videos before but strangely never managed to do so.

Anyway, today's episode is about games that are described as being "not videogames" may it be due to their artistic touch or for trying to separate them more clearly from the mainstream releases or for the old you just don't get it so stop criticizing it maneuver.

Sure, I've got a rather strong aversion to modern triple-A games that are graphically over-polished in order to cover up bad/forced game play mechanics [6] but on second thought I do feel bad now for going down this road. It's just plain arrogant calling games I enjoy true video games while denying games I'm not really interested in this very notion :-/

Almost done with Legendary Mode and can't wait starting with Adventure Mode.
Haven't had that much fun with a non-indie and non-retro game in a long time and I'm covered for the next couple of months too as there's DLC with new maps announced already :-)

Quick Wii U update:

It's just a single game that I've added to my collection, but it's one that definitely deserves a separate post: Hyrule Warriors.

I just love it and it made me wonder, why I haven't yet considered the Hack'n Slash genre as one of my favorite game genres.

When looking back, I've not only played quite a lot Hack'n Slash games but also enjoyed every single one of them big time. I don't know if it's the repetitive but flow-inducing game play mechanics or the fact that those games are often true video games aka fuck realism, let's just go crazy regarding story, character design and whatever else we've always wanted to throw at our gamers solely designed to bring joy. 

PS: Sry for not sharing any screenshots or videos, but I've played it only in Off-TV mode only so far.

I think, I've accidentally started a little snapshot project the other day – capturing #Vienna  from an askew perspective, cutting out people, streets and sights but focusing on the buildings around me instead. 

I'm not yet sure if I should stick to my phone or start carrying a real camera with me; the first is of course more comfortable, the latter would allow for higher quality and detail.
While writing these lines, I'm all in for the phone plus a little bit of G+ photo magic. It's dirtier, rougher and therefore closer to reality. Also, no photo whatsoever could capture walking the streets of Vienna anyway.

C64 game collection update

I've just added three new games to my collection, all coincidentally developed and published by System 3. One is – again [1] – a game that I've never thought would get my hands on (especially for paying only €3), the other two are games that I've tried but never really played back in the day.

Ninja Remix: It's fun to see all the ongoing discussions about HD Remakes for PS3 and Xbox360 games these days and how it is the latest shallow, creedy, pure let's make an extra dime cash-in idea of EA and co. Well, listen up kids, it's been done before. Ninja Remix is a beefed up version of Last Ninja 2 (the first Last Ninja if you're an Amiga or Atari ST gamer), released for the same(!) platforms only two years after the remixed game came out.

Anyway, I think I'm gonna need to update my #BenjaminsGameCollectingMoments  [2]

Myth - History in the Making: I do remember this game quite fondly and that I never really figured out what to do. Gonna need to revisit it sometime

Tusker: Again, I do remember having played booted up this one back in the day but the disk/game/crack was faulty and the experience therefore very limited. It's an action adventure – similar to Last Ninja and/or Vendetta – with a touch of Indiana Jones to it.

I've never played a Dynasty Warriors game before and frankly I'm not really a huge Legend of Zelda fan either but Hyrule Warriors kicks ass!

Nice!
Not that Bayonetta 1 & 2* hasn't been on my shopping list already, but a 10/10 from Edge never hurts.

Uff... tried watching Life on Mars (UK) today.
That's gonna be a tough show to watch understand due to the protagonists' Manchester accent and +Netflix not offering subtitles. Also, my mind's all calibrated to understanding Tony Soprano and his "family" – jep, (still) re-watching The Sopranos (goo.gl/0BEhYs).
