Midweek’s Blender!

Thank god is Wednesday, isn’t? Well, maybe some of you doesn’t like it, maybe some of you are looking for something to do the rest of the week. Here on TwoGamed, we have recommendations for you, who seeks for some new experiences.

So prepare your popcorns, grab some friends or go to your favorite book store, because we are going to give you our personal recommendations for this week!

 The ocean at the end of the lane by Neil Gaiman.

Stephen King described Gaiman as “a treasure house of story”, adding that “we are lucky to have him in any medium”. I am totally with Mr. King and this book is a strong proof of Gaiman’s unique imagination.

In The Ocean at the End of the Lane we found a Man that visits the place where he grew up to visit an old friend of him, but as he spends more time in the old house he starts to remember not just forgotten memories but impossible ones… Did it really happen? Was magic real when he was a child? Maybe. The fantasy gets really attached to the reality in this vivid book full of lessons. Are the key of every monster those ladies at the end of the lane? But seriously… Did it really happen? Read it to find out.

Inception

“We create the world of a dream. We bring a subject into that dream and they fill it with their secrets” My favorite quote from Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio). This really exciting Movie from Christopher Nolan will give you a huge headache and a lot of really classic moments (the kick, a dreams within a dream!, zero-gravity on a dream and… dammit Cobb! Your wife is dead… isn’t she?). The movie explores the capacity of steal information from dreams and the impossible mission of give a new thought to someone entering to his mind… while he sleeps.

Full of action. With a really crazy and awesome script, a magnificient music and a cast full of stars. This movie will give you chills, and more important… while make you reevaluate your life. And lock the door while you sleep.

 Shadow Fight 2

If you own an iPhone or Android, you must check out this game! Shadow fight 2 place us on the role of an ancient asian warrior, whose search for a worthy battle, ends up releasing some ancient demons, and turning him into *dramatic sound* a shadow… (Not to mention that the intro reminds me some cartoons from my childhood, and is pretty well animated)

t’s a pretty simple combat game, where you must fight the demons, their bodyguards and participate in some tournaments to earn money and buy new powerful weapons and armors. Yet, the biggest problem(besides the awful controls on every touchscreen game) with the game is the insane amount of grind (if you don’t want to pay to get better stuff, recover energy, etc), yet the game can be played without expending money.

Shovel Knight OST

And finally, the suggested music of the week: Shovel Knight Original Soundtrack. This game takes us back to the age of the supernintendo with his (not that original to be honest, there is a lot of “retro” games out there) style. The game is just amazing, and it’s the first in my experience that truly recreates that NES style of gameplay.

And the soundtrack of it is just lovely, go and listen to it by yourself, you can hear it by FREE on the link above, and you can buy and download it all paying WHATEVER YOU WANT. I can’t explain how much this music reminds me my childhood, and if you are looking for something to bring those old, good memories, there is nothing better than this.
