A look back at the 2006 release, Sonic Riders. A very polarizing things, we look at what the game excelled at, while noting how some of the flaws may have led the game to be overlooked.
Games and TV Inspired Food: Let The Nomming Begin
I am someone who lives to eat, and will tell anyone who asks that I love food. I am someone who can take whatever is in her pantry and make something absolutely magnificent with a few ingredients and time… Or it could back fire and turn into slop. (Hey I don’t always make perfect concoctions.) I am also a gamer, so combining that with my love of food is a match made in heaven. So my fellow readers, in this article I will bring you to all of the lovely creations that the internet has provided to us gamers and foodies. Enjoy!
Feast of Fiction
Currently this Youtube duo is taking a small break from their channel, but that is not to say they don’t have goodies that are worth looking into. Their channel focuses on food or drinks from games, television, movies or books. Needless to say, when I found their channel I squealed in delight. They have Alice in Wonderland cookies, Ratatouille, Nuka Cola from Fallout, Ambrosia Nectar and Squares from the Percy Jackson series, several items from Adventure Time, Chef’s Chocolate Salty Balls from South Park, and Fish Fingers and Custard from the popular Doctor Who.
What’s that? One of the actors looks familiar? Oh that’s Freddie Wong’s brother, Jimmy Wong. He is one of the main characters from the web television series Video Game High School (VGHS). It’s why this channel is taking a break, they are still working on Season 2 of the show.
Rosanna Pansino: Nerdy Nummies
This Youtuber is is an avid baker and I’m always astounded by her creations. While she doesn’t completely replicate food from games, she still does make my mouth water. If you have some baking equipment lying around, you can definitely try out some of her recipes. However some of her stuff does require some fondant tools, piping bags, and candy/chocolate molds. She makes anything that is nerdy geeky and all around awesome. This talented woman has a very extensive collection of recipes to try out as well.
While this blogger doesn’t have videos to accompany their recipes, they make it up with mouthwatering pictures. This blog site strictly deals with food from games, which is pretty hard to do when you look at how much food is in games in comparison to books or movies. They also have a handy heart meter that lets readers know how difficult a recipe is. However don’t let a hard recipe deter you. The blogger has not received any formal or professional training in the kitchen, so if they can do it, so can you.
Now onwards to drinks! And yes I encourage people to drink responsibly and be of legal age. I’d hate to hear of someone keeling over because they had one too many Pacific Rums.
The Drunken Moogle
Not only do I find some awesome recipes on this site, but I always leave with a chuckle. Aptly named from the Final Fantasy character, the Drunken Moogle has everything from recipes, hilarious images, innovative and fan girl inducing glassware and flasks, and all things geeky. Often many of the creations listed on the site are originals, inspired from a massive television series to something as small as a Pokemon. The site is devoted to bringing of the best out of geekiness and booze.
This Youtube takes creations from The Drunken Moogle along with various other sites and mixes them with their own creations. Emphasizing on the sexy, these videos feature hot women alongside their drinks and a quick plug about the games their drinks are based off of. Many of these aren’t replicas from games, but I doubt that’s going to stop you from trying them out, right?
