On PewDiePie’s $7m…

The problem here isn’t the money this young man is making with his videos… the problem is that there areĀ 37 million souls watching him playing games instead of spending that time playing games themselves, which to me makes no sense at all.

It might be a sign that I’m getting old, but I rather play games than watching some guy doing it while screaming hysterically.

Bah! This kids today… <waves fist>

Diggin’ In The Carts

If you’re an old school gamer like me, you’ll know that one of the key aspects of retro gaming is the music. When remembering a really good game from the good old days, one of the first things that came up is the game’s theme, that memorable melody that’s carved into our brains.

Red Bull Music Academy has released a very interesting and well made documentary about japanese video game music, that covers a lot of untold aspects of the story behind the most influential music to come out of Japan.

You can check the several released episodes here.
