I wanted to let everyone know that I entered a contest over at CoffeeWithGames a couple of weeks ago for a chance to win 2 years worth of FREE coffee. Well, good news (for me) everyone, I WON!
Scott from CoffeeWithGames was gracious enough to host this contest on his site, CoffeeWithGames. For those of you who don’t know, Scott analyzes data from the Nintendo Channel and gives us his insightful and detailed take on Wii games. We have linked to a few of his articles in the past, and I encourage you to read up on his blog for information, game analysis and more.
Oh, and if anyone is interested here is my contest entry. It is a video game themed poem.
I awaken, all alone in a field,
surrounded by mountains
Defenseless, having no sword nor a shield.
What is this I hear?
My ears do they deceive?
Strange music abounds,
Reminiscent of classic, 8-bit sounds.
I look yonder, a cave is what my eyes perceive!
As I approach the entrance I see light from a flame,
Briefly, I am reminded of a magical old game.
Upon entering I see a bearded old man,
standing between two flames with something in his hand.
As I approach, he speaks,
“It is dangerous to go alone. Take this!”
I am jarred by those familiar words
Hesitantly, I reach for the sword.
Then he hits me on the top of my head and
says “Wake up Jeremy, time to get out of bed.”
Oh boy, it’s Monday morning, back to the grind.
I roll out of bed, and leave my dreams behind.
I step into the kitchen, right up to the pot,
grab a filter, measure out some grounds and whatnot.
Then I sit at the table as I wait for my brew,
Flip open my 3DS, to play for a few.
What game you ask? Why Legend of Zelda, of course.
I got it for free as an early adopter, and I have no remorse
For spending 249 plus tax on day two
Now excuse me please as I enjoy some of that brew.
