Adding Lyrics to or Humming Game Music

Over the years I have found myself humming or singing made up lyrics to various video game related songs. Throughout my childhood I didn’t listen to all that popular music on the radio, or on CDs. The only music I would hear would be from video games and movies. It wasn’t just the music, I also added words to sound effects.

Role-Playing Games to Action Adventure Games

Everyday there are debates about what games are truly RPGs (role-playing games). Lots of people consider The Legend of Zelda series an RPG, when the series is actually an action-adventure title; with the exception of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, which is an action RPG. There are some people who believe that an RPG is defined as playing the role of a character in the game. The issue with that statement revolves around the knowledge of every game. Every video game results in the gamer picking up some sort of controller and playing the role of a character in their video game of choice. With this knowledge, every game would be defined as an RPG.

Qwikster is now nonexistent

Last month, Netflix announced that they were splitting their streaming and DVD services. The streaming portion would remain Netflix, and the DVD shipment would be named “Qwikster“. Qwikster would ship DVDs and Blu-rays, and soon video games. To reap the benefits of Qwikster, users would have to make an additional account, and have a separate bill on a completely different website.

As of today, October 10th, 2011. Reed Hastings of Netflix, has announced that Qwikster is no more. The DVD portion that was originally splitting off will be staying at Netflix.

“It is clear that for many of our members two websites would make things more difficult, so we are going to keep Netflix as one place to go for streaming and DVDs.

This means no change: one website, one account, one password… in other words, no Qwikster.

While the July price change was necessary, we are now done with price changes.

We’re constantly improving our streaming selection. We’ve recently added hundreds of movies from Paramount, Sony, Universal, Fox, Warner Bros., Lionsgate, MGM and Miramax. Plus, in the last couple of weeks alone, we’ve added over 3,500 TV episodes from ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, USA, E!, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, ABC Family, Discovery Channel, TLC, SyFy, A&E, History, and PBS.

We value our members, and we are committed to making Netflix the best place to get movies & TV shows.

Thank you.”

Netflix will continue to be a convenient service for people to enjoy. The death of Qwikster, will bring joy to some, and disappointment to others.
