I am Mog Anarchy, and I like to play games. Whether they are old, new, retro, modern, online, offline, console, computer, critically acclaimed or notoriously bad. Here on my blog, I rant about, review, trash talk, praise and generally talk about all of my favourite and least-favourite games. I also write my own guides on how to accomplish tricky tasks, show off my creative endeavors and challenge myself with crazy in-game tasks. I also have a bunch of gaming merchandise which I am glad to show off. So drop me a comment, I love hearing your questions, criticisms, comments and general gaming discussions. :)


Video Game iPod Tracks: Flying Battery Romance

When I passed my GCSE exams in 2008, my mam bought me a 80GB iPod Classic as a present. I called her Lisa. She's stood me in good stead and I still carry her with me every time I'm forced to use public transport to drown out the sound of fuckwits and their screaming children.

Anyway, what's on my iPod? Mainly a shitload of heavy metal albums and practically every song that had been used in some manifestation of a Guitar Hero/Rock Band game. But also, I have a fondness for video game soundtracks (obviously). My biggest GB-fillers are the entire soundtracks to Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Final Fantasy VII and Sonic Adventure 2.

However - I'm a big fan of fan mash-ups, YTPMVs and original video game parody/homage songs. If anybody provides their song with a download link as an mp3 or iTunes link, I'm ALL OVER IT. (And for those who don't, I just use WavePad Master's Edition to steal it. :P)

One song I've recently added to my iPod is this amazing mash-up, a combination of Sonic & Knuckles and Lady Gaga - it's called FLYING BATTERY ROMANCE. It was made by the YouTube user spankypark and now has pride of place on my iPod. :)

Go to their video and leave them comments, thumbs and download  the damn song. It's so fucking awesome. It's not like the typical shitty mash-ups where the songs don't even match tempos - in this one, the two songs actually compliment each other really well.


Zora Link ROCKS OUT!

Recently re-playing The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask, I was messing about with Zora Link and his awesome guitar. I'm probably not the only person to discover this, but you can have minutes of mindless fun by simply whizzing the C-stick round in a circle and bashing the A button - to which Zora Link will rattle off what sounds like an awesome guitar solo. :)

Bear in mind, I did this on the Legend Of Zelda: Collector's Edition on the GameCube that I have and everybody wants coz it's going for like £50 on Amazon.co.uk. Tee hee, I got it during the blissful days of Club Nintendo where my brother and I shared an account and pooled our stars together to buy cool shit - and through us hording games we both managed to grab a copy of this game, costing only 2000 stars.

For those who don't remember, Nintendo games in the GameCube/Game Boy Advance era came with fold-out scratchcard inserts with codes on them that could be redeemed online for STARS. These stars could be then exchanged for cool shit. Most games came with 200/250 stars and peripherals like the Game Boy Player came with 400. And YES I KNOW, Club Nintendo still exists - but now they charge like 1500 stars for a FUCKING KEYCHAIN. We paid 2000 stars for a WHOLE FUCKING GAME. As always, Nintendo isn't as good as it used to be.

Anyway - I did it on the GameCube version - so I had a C-stick to spin around. This would be quite hard to do on the original N64 controller. :)

Here's a video anyway:

Oh, and get a fucking load of THIS:

That is the JACKSON ZORAXE, made by Jackson Guitars. Only SEVEN of them have been made. An exact replica of Mikau's fish-bone guitar from The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Even though I can't play the guitar (I play the keyboard actually), I would die for one of these. :D
