By the Swedes, for the Swedes. The Darkness.

So I just finished playing through The Darkness again. I haven't touched it since I finished it the last time, which was back in 2007 when it was released. I still think it's a fantastic and heavily underappreciated game.

Anyway, since the game is made by Starbreeze Studios, a swedish developer, there is a lot of grafitti and lettering spread about the game that is in swedish. So while playing through it this time, I acitvely looked for swedish words around the world. This is what I found.

"HATA ALLA!" Or "Hate everyone!".

"AIK", A swedish soccer team.

Hard to make out, but it says "Katt", which means "Cat".

"TANT", a word used in swedish for "old lady".

"SLAKT". Which means "Slaughter".

Not really swedish words, but at least it's swedish something. It says "Swedish Smorgasbord take-out" :D.

"Herr. A". Which is pretty much "Mr. A".

Not really a swedish word either, but "øl" is Danish for "Beer".

"Bjorn", almost "Björn", which means "Bear".

"STATY!", meaning "Statue!". And "FRITÖS?", meaning "Fryer?".

Advertisement for some band called "POLIS BATONG", which means "Police baton".

"STHLM". An Abbreviation for "Stockholm".

"ruttengubbe", basically meaning something along the lines of "rotten old man".

Not really a word, but a name. "Krille P". "Krille" is a common nickname for someone named "Kristian". Or it could, and probably is referring to the person who is believed to have killed Olof Palme in 1986. Since "Krille P" is a common nickname for him.

An english and a swedish word. "FOLK", meaning "People".

"GULDTAND", meaning "Gold tooth".

"LÅST", meaning "Locked".

"RUMPA", meaning "Ass". As in, someone's ass, not someone being an ass.

"Skurk!", basically meaning "Thief", "Bad guy" or "Villain".

I don't think this is an actual word, but it says "Läskväska" which would mean something like "Soda bag".

"Hårdrock", meaning "Hard rock". As in music, not an actual rock.

A picture of a bear with the word "Björn", meaning "Bear".

"KULT", meaning "Cult". Or it could mean that something has had a cultural impact on society.

"BÄVER", meaning "Beaver".

I'm sure there are more, but these are the ones that I could find. It was fun looking for all of them, because none of it makes any darned sense :P.

I can not for the life of me get some sleep!

Seriously, I'm so damned tired, and yet I can't sleep. No position I try seems to work and on top of that I seem to have developed some form disturbing pain eminating from the right side of my hip that comes in short bursts. As soon as I feel like I'm going to be able to fall asleep, what happens? Pain, yay! And I had such a good track record of getting up early in the morning, now I have to ruin it I think. Because when I eventually do fall asleep, I'm guessing that I'm going to need a lot of it. 
 
/End sleepy rant.

The Quest!

For more worthless points is on! Of course I'm referring to the new quest system on Giantbomb, it's surprisingly addictive! I've been going at it for about an hour or so now and I feel as if there's no end in sight. Although when I realise that it's something that I can never get all points in, I'll probably stop caring. It's fun though! I like it. 
 
In case anyone reads this, this is just to get more points, I do my blogging elsewhere.

Cat scratch fever.

Minus the cat.

So.. I've been sick for a week to the day now and it's only getting worse. A couple of days ago a regular cold had evolved into fever and some inner ear infection which ni turn makes me pretty much deaf on my right ear. All of this sucks, and there's no sign of it getting any better, only worse. As if that wasn't enough, I accidentally scratched my copy of Assassin's Creed when I walked past my 360 and accidentally pulled the chord and moved the whole console. So I had to order a new copy of that, although I did find it cheap, so it's not a big deal but still annoying.

Also, I've ordered a PSP 3004, so I have something to look forward to. I just hope that I won't regret that purchase once I get my hands on it. But I don't think I will, there are enough games out there now for me to have an interest. And I found that cheap too, so it's all good.

While writing this, I seem to have allready forgotten what I'm actually writing about, I guess that's fever for you. Confusing and disorienting you, awesome. PEACE!

The blue hog.

I'll be playing The Orange Box, Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2. I didn't play through Half-Life 2 or Episode 1 when I got The Orange Box so I'll be going through them to milk some achievements as well as replaying a great game. Pretty much the same deal with Sonic, I downloaded them both from XBLA a couple of months ago but never got around to finish either of them.
