25 10 2009

Our meeting was at Saturday the 24th. As always (or nearly always) when we do a Kick Off training, there was a theme park at the parking lot, but all participants managed to find a parking place. First who arrived was Juan S. He told me, that some vandals had damed the bell and that my one is gone, a nice start 😦

Therefor Juan got me a bottle of spanish red wine as a present, thanks Juan. While we did our first matches, Frank F. arrived. Surprise surprise, he also had a present, a self made cake. Thanks Frank. So for the afternoon we had something to eat (because everybody beside me had to drive, we did not drink the wine). Last but not least, Jan K. arrived. He got me a burned CD, thanks to him too.

This time we decided to do no tournament even that we were 4 people. Instead we did some training games.We enjoyed the games and had a good time. We also watch the video from the Lund tournament and talked about the upcoming WC in Austria.

Juan then left and the rest of us continue to play. Later we ordered some food and played Tennis and Guitar Hero on the Wii. At last we watched (as a preparation for Austria) the austrian movie “Hinterholz 8”.

So this time we played a lot of Kick Off, but also did some other stuff. Thats a great addition to only play Kick Off, and we see what we could do at the next training.





WGL 10 2009

18 10 2009

After quit a long time, we managed to do another Wiesbaden Gaming Lab (WGL). The idea was born at the HomeCon III where I met Wizard (Holger) again.

Jan (Newa) was also glad that Wizard reappears and so we met on Saturday to play some old games.

We started to show each other the actual games in the STOT (Paradroid 90) and the Abbuc Bundesliga (River Raid).

 

Paradroid was to complicated for the 8 Bit crowd 🙂

River Raid is still a great game, everybody aggreed.

Next we did a break for some fine indian food we ordered from a nearby restaurant. Now we were ready to play a real 3 player game: Worms

 

We played worms on a ATARI Jaguar and Wizard who didn’t played the game so far leared fast (also to consider: Newa and I aren’t well known for our Worms talent). We will play it next time again definitly.

 

Also a great fun was Guitar Hero III on the Wii. I own the game now for half a year or more and never found the time to play it. But yes it’s fun, and I will play it again.

Next we had a look at various PSX games I got from SSB. The winner of the evening was “Circuit Break”. This game is really cool, it’s a Rally Speedway in 3D, and one of the very few games, I would say it was worth to have 3D graphics. It’s a big fun, to kick the opponement from the track down in the canyon and other things like that.

 

While I tried to assign a second and third pad to the Wii, Newa tried out Soulblade on the PSX, which has a nice soundtrack, but if you know Soul Calibur on the Dreamcast, it’s simply not as nice as Soul Calibur.

Finaly I managed to get the pads working and we played Grand Slam Tennis on the Wii. A really great Tennis game. Unfortunately I was not used to play without the motion controll, so Wizard won (next time …)

Afte Wizard left home, Newa and I played Metal Slug X on the PSX for a while, then Newa also left and the meeting was over.

Was nice to have the old WGL spirit back, and I look forward for the next meeting.
