The Very Best Computer Game Ever Made

Wednesday 17 September 2008 at 1:02 pm When I was going to Poland for exchange studies, I had with myself an ancient, bone-crushingly heavy laptop for typing essays and whatnot. That relic of a computer featured a black%white screen, a highly unresponsive keyboard, and a disturbingly slow 386 processor that barely ran DOS and Windows 3.11 (and looked like this). Before the trip I downloaded a few games for it, to keep me entertained in that strange country I knew next to nothing about.

The time in Poland was awesome (in fact so awesome that I went back there a year later!), but I did find some time to try out the games, too. I was happing to find that I had made some excellent choices - and one of them turned out to be The Very Best Computer Game Ever Made! (more)

The Muppets are here!

Wednesday 10 September 2008 at 10:44 am The Muppet Show

Hurrah! The 3rd season of the the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, muppetational TV series ever made has finally reached us! Judging from the first 4 episodes we've watched already, this is certainly the most hyper-active and bizarre season so far!

The region 2 DVD release is high-class, just like the previous seasons. The only grudge we have is the lack of Finnish subtitles (even though according to the box they should be in there!), but that's hardly a surprise, as the season 2 was never imported to Finland.

Budapest Defenders

Tuesday 09 September 2008 at 1:38 pm Budapest Defenders"The CIA has been encouraging the Hungarian people to rebel against their Soviet masters for over six years. They have also been supplying the freedom fighters with cash and weapons. It's October 23, 1956 and it's time to fight."

In Budapest Defenders your task is to defend the Hungarian headquarters from the invading Soviet forces. The highly limited resources need to be divided to build barricades and arm rebels, carefully constructing a defence network that the 30 increasingly massive waves of Russian troops cannot penetrate.

The plot of this actually fun and challenging game is set on historical context; the Hungarians did rebel against Soviet Union on October 23rd, 1956. However, less than two weeks later the rebellion was crushed.

Free Rice

Saturday 06 September 2008 at 10:34 pm Free RiceFree Rice lets you play for food. It's essentially a simple quiz, but for every correct answer the United Nations World Food Program donates 20 grains of rice to the poor of the world. So far over 2 million people have been fed through the program.

This is a highly recommendable way to kill some time - but please keep in mind that it does not mean that you should stop giving real donations!
