Happy Valentines Day, Romance in Video Games

As today is Valentines Day I would love to share few of my favorite romance sequence from video games.

8 bit heart

Prince of Persia (the original version that came out first on Apple II in 1989)

The story was you play as a the Prince and you kill the bad guy Jaffar, save the beautiful Princess and marry her. That’s what I call a perfect romantic story.

Here is a video of the game just in case you are too young to know which version of  Prince of Persia , I am talking about.

 

Super Mario Bros. (released in the year 1985, first released on NES)

You see I am a very good guy as the major part of my childhood was spend saving Mario’s girlfriend. How many people saves other persons girlfriend now a days?

Joking apart perhaps the game Super Mario Bros was one of the most famous game in the history of gaming.  The game play was simple you play as the character Mario and you go from one castle to another castle overcoming obstacles and killing enemies in your path and save the Princess Peach.

Government can Spy on Your Beloved Gaming Console too.

 

Well you knew that Government can peep into your computer and your mobile phone and now guess what, they can do the same with your gaming console ! (Yes, you read it correct gaming console like Xbox360, Play Station, etc). The US Navy was awarded with $177,237 sole-source research contract to Obscure Technologies like gaming consoles encryption key. As we all know that todays gaming consoles can not only play games but can connect to Internet , chat and store data on their massive internal storage, the Government thinks that they can dig a gold mine of sensitive information in them.

But i really wonder why will a terrorist play Modern Warfare over real war? and why will any criminal play Grand Theft Auto over real life crime? And if it happens that some real criminal does stores data that can e used by Government to stop crime or put the bad guys in prison, why wont the Government simply ask the vendor to decrepit the data I am sure gaming console manufactures will do hat for them. We have seen in the past how FBI took help from Google to unlock the Android pattern lock of a criminals phone.
