Sofa is being deleted and I'm migrating!

I'm in a "high on something that is not drugs" mood today, for several reasons.

As some of you know, I have had this damn left over sofa in my apartment since we moved in. It has been in the way, it has caused me pain and it have silently mocked me every time I tried to squeeze through in the hallway. For almost 4 months I have endured this hell, but now... it is finally being amputated from my life!

Since I got some more space in my life, I've decided to migrate to a new group of friends (the old ones doesn't have any more money I can acquire with my evil scamming schemes).


The sofa of death is gone!

Well, it's in the hall way outside of my apartment but I still feel I've finally slain my dragon with my giant spear. Sofa, you are penetrated, dismembered and disgraced - just the way I like you. May you never rest in peace you IKEA son of a bitch.

And for all of you perverts that thought the paragraph above was a bit... you know: IT IS ALL IN _YOUR_ MIND SICKOS!

Hahah, gotcha! *high-fives myself*

The feeling of *Aaaah...*
New Groups and now complicated thingies!

I have lately, since my old group split up after the "old job" incident I have felt a bit lonely (and you can understand me since you know that I am a social freak of nature that require constant attention and love).

I've been so sad that every time I've seen a ginger boy chasing after girls in red dresses (referring to people reminding me of Håkan Sjölin) or whenever a Knight on a White Stallion has been riding by (referring to people reminding me of Fredrik Öhman), I must admit that I cried a little. I miss you guys!

(yeah yeah you jealous sons of a bitches I miss you all just as much!)

Luckily, I'm working with some fun new people that has chosen to include me (pfft, how could you NOT want to include me?) in their social group... even though one of them enjoys her sofa way too much. I wont mention any names but I'm talking about Louise Coady (yes of course, the singer!).

It's a fun new group. I will never get tired of Victorias craziness, Adelle's improper comments or my new soul mate Matts' tight heinie (sorry Craig but you've been avoiding me and I need way more love than you have shown me lately! You are demoted to number two in my list of soul-mates).

Alright, back to doing some work followed by watching House MD and Game of Thrones.

Assassins Creed 1, 2, Brotherhood and Relevations

Today I am going to have a few words about these games and what I think about the progression and the overall experience I had when I played each of these games.

Too bad the control improvements from each games kind of kills the replay-ability of the earlier games. It is easy to move forward... but to step back?


Altair you rock, game-play you kind of suck!

Altair, Assassins Creed
Initially this was just awesome. Loved every piece of it... until...

Repetitiveness. All the time the same thing. The ending was nice, the story was also brilliant. Great character development. I really felt like an awesome assassin with a great soul.

Altair Ibn La Ahad, I love you but I don't think I could ever replay you in this game.

I give you:
4/10. Okay, but something was missing...

Oh hello there Ezio! Let's go and screw the pope!

A new hero emerges. Ezio Auditore Da Firenze. In this game not really as strong character as Altair, but I am starting to like this guy.

Technology has caught up, I got my own place, Leonardo Da'Vinci is my buddy and my enemy is the Pope! Can it get more exciting? I don't think so. A thrilling story, a fun Gameplay with more things to do and improved controls. Plus, I got two hidden blades now. Kick ass.

Can't complain guys, you did a great job on this one.

8/10. Nearly there now!

Ezio, Assassins Creed 2 by TheBarcay on DeviantArt.com

Seriously Ezio, he is not that hard to kill!

Ezio did it again! And this time he is ready to step up and take control over Rome, the city if cities. A huge area to expand, renovate (my favorite part!), more Leonardo crazy stuff and even better controls. Well done!

But honestly, the Crossbow? Really?.. I have one ranged weapon, why would I want to use the Crossbow? Sure, it has more ammo but... it was a bit too much of a desperate "OH SHIT WE NEED TO INTRODUCE A NEW WEAPON!" kind of thing.

Story was really good, especially the "It's a me, a Mario!" part (check end of blog post for the video). The villain was a bit ridiculous gameplay-wise compared to the Pope (I mean, did you really have to beat him that much, couldn't you just shoot the fucker and get it over with?), but his character was much stronger and well developed. Almost a masterpiece IMO.

My own Assassins. Yummy.

9/10. Don't be desperate guys, just do what makes sense.


Ezio is BANG-tastic and I love him more than life!

This might be the best game in the AC Series. Highly optimized Apprentice/Recruitment system (it really makes sense now and every Assassins feels unique). The Hook Blade and the Bombs is actually the only new things I need, good choice. I love that the controls and the weapon customization and usability was greatly improved.

The story suffers I'm afraid. I fail to really identify a bad guy that I can watch how he develops. I haven't finished the game yet so I might be wrong, but I have come a fair bit into it. I don't like that Desmond is in a coma for so long, it feels like that the Developers tried to save time by excluding lots of the "non-Animus" game-play and replacing it with annoying mini-games inside a computer.

Still, I enjoy the game a lot and have had some fun with the perhaps flawed Tower Defence mini-game. I love to revisit Altair and I love to be Ezio once again in a very nice city (which I like more than Rome to be honest). I miss my horse though.

9/10. Please get that 10 in Assassins Creed III please.

A Swedish Easter, by Deckard Cain

Warning! This blog post is written by Deckard Cain from the computer game Diablo!

This is the story about the 2012th Easter since the false date of Jesus birth. Since many people celebrate this holiday, we will zoom into the city of Gibraltar and particularly the Swedish group plus their sworn companions.

Gathered in this faithful celebration (at some point from wed-Sunday) was: Joakim, Vlada, Johan, Trine, Leo, Nathalie, Pelle, Alexander The Great, Jamie the First, Mollie the Miniature Giant Space Hamster, Camilla, Charlotte Uffe, Marina, Paula, Michael, Johanna, Andreas, Zeru, Annika, Håkan, Phil, Jennie, Rebecca, Phil, Johan (the new Fredrik) and more.

The Quiz Battle for Britannia
The group of combatants was divided into two squads in the event called "Pub Quiz". War sungs such as "Vi äro små fiskar vi, blubb blubb" and "Vad kommer inte in på systemet? - Hunden; Katten (korven?); Glassen!)  was sung while the two teams answered tricky questions about the wetlands (Britannia).

Strangely enough, the smaller team won after the team with most Swedes got all of the Swedish questions wrong (Rebecca, Jennie and Håkan is responsible for this mistake about Sweden being a Kingdom or a Republic).

Johanna and Joakim sure knew how to get all of the answers right. Piece of cake.

Joakim, Johanna, Balrog and Rory

Friday Feast with the Milk of a Unicorn!

On the Friday the group gathered once again, but this time to celebrate and feast at the Tavern called Charlies! The evening brought the group to Brunos where lots of drinks and laughs were had. When the evening almost couldn't get any greater, the group discovered the legendary Milk of the Unicorn, which was devoured by Phil the Fierce, one of the local natives that just happen to love a warm jug of mead.

The Evening was a Success. Everyone was a winner!

Håkan and Trine with William in the background!

The Northern Gatherings of Saturday

An Easter Lunch was devoured to prepare for the Great Bowl of Greatness! Both events was very successful and amazingly enough, there was a Swedish winner in the Great Bowl of Greatness... Johan Renner! Johanna would have won if she had listened to Joakim. It's all in the hips.

Before the night was over this bunch had drunken buckets of beer, invaded Gilbert's Hunters Lodge and raided a nearby country (Spain). Well done Northern Adventurers.

Deckard Cain, signing off.

Uffe, Annika, Zeru, Charlottenlök, Michael, Paula, Marina, Johan, Andreas, Joakim, Håkan, Johanna, Camilla, Pelle, Johan (New Fredrik) and Rebecca!

Places to Eat in Gibraltar

I've been thinking for a while about writing a blog post about the pretty and the shitty places where you can eat in Gibraltar. If you can't take bad language you shouldn't keep reading, 'cause I'm pretty pissed at some of the places here (although quite happy about a few others).


Great Restaurants of Gibraltar!

Charlie's with my friends and old freelancers :)
1) Charlies Tavern, Ocean Village [their website]
Best food in Gibraltar. Indian Cuisine is fantastic, but their burgers, ribs and sea food is quote damn nice as well. The Service is usually really nice except from when this Blond Manager Woman misses out on the important fact that THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT! She can tell customers off for either their own or the customers mistakes, which is not cool. The rest of the staff is awesome and they even remember your favourite orders and make jokes etc. Love them.

2) Cafe Rojo, Irish Town [their facebook page]
Great food, but less to choose from. Little LCHF friendly food, but what they have is amazing. Service is great, but less personal touch than Charlies. Still really like this place.

3) Lek Bangkok, Eurotowers [their website]
Love the Thai food they got and their owner is awesome. He is just a god. A tad more expensive now than before but still produce the best Asian food in Gibraltar.

4) Ipanema, Ocean Village [their website]
Great food, although a bit bland sometimes and quite expensive. Drinks are the best ones in Gib as well. Love their meat buffet. Service is very good most of the times, but I've experienced clumsy bar men and waitresses (and sneaky extra fees!) a couple of times. But all in all quite good!

5) Taps Bar, Ocean Village [contact info page]
Good prices, nice food and the owners are just awesome. Two of their waitresses is really the bottom scrape of Gibraltar. I hope they both get fired. One of them had to take my order 4 times (by me walking to their actually not so busy bar) and still not delivering (but delivering the same dish to people who came later). This waitress in particular was probably dropped as a child.


PIECE OF SHIT Restaurants of Gibraltar!

If you want to die of food poisoning and have your night ruined, go to these places:

1) The Square Café in Casemates: Serves raw/frozen chicken, got food poisoned 2/2 times
2) Pizza Express (frozen pizzas are bigger and taste better)
3) O'Reillys (shit food and worst service in Gibraltar)
4) Celebrities Wine Bar: Good Drinks, shit food. Love the owner though.
5) The Casino: They heat stuff from Morrisons, end of story
6+) Most Mainstreet places actually.
