Through Gamer Goggles News Episode 003

We opened this week’s show with a video game related song My Atari from Sudden Death who is better known as Devo Spice.  Devo Spice is a member of The FuMP which is short for Funny Music Project.

Video Games Good for You

From the Wall Street Journal 

“Videogames can change a person’s brain and, as researchers are finding, often that change is for the better. A growing body of university research suggests that gaming improves creativity, decision-making and perception. The specific benefits are wide ranging, from improved hand-eye coordination in surgeons to vision changes that boost night driving ability. “

Other points to note

  • Women that play video games are better able to manipulate 3D objects

  • Violent games have the strongest beneficial effect, But they are a two-edged sword. Compulsive video gaming can lead to obesity, introversion, and even depression. What was the name of that Bobby Brown song? Every gamer needs to listen to this while they play Don’t Worry Be Happy

  • According to the article the average gamer is 34 and plays about 18 hours a week.

We then played Pac Man by Devo Spice with Worm Quartet Both are members of The FuMP.

You’ve Been Sentenced Goes Country Music

Here is the basics of the game


 

Here is a video to watch about the country music version.


I was told By Don McNeill, the creator, today that this will be a totally new game, not just an expansion.

It will feature words like

Truck

daisy dukes

grub

y’all

mullet

Cowboy

girl

bow

survive

knife

sweet potato

sausage

grits

gravy

just to name a few.

We closed out with, due to a listener request, some chip tune music from members of the 8 bit peoples:

  • My Thin Skin from Nullsleep
  • Icarus from Trash80

As always, most of the music was found using Mevio’s Music Alley.
