Oslo on January 25th was supposed to be my last show until Manchester on February 6th. So when I got back from Oslo, of course I sold a few things on eBay and bought a Paris ticket. I’d go, camp out, then come straight home.
Then a couple of days before the Brussels show, I saw my friend Anja selling a ticket for it. It was the day before Paris and would just work with my uni schedule… but I’d already booked my Ouibus to Paris. Did I abandon it? It was 12€ which is approximately 55 bowls of
Hey guys, I'm Nico and welcome to another episode of Nico Talks About Stuff!
Today's topic is something that annoys many people: Censorship in video games.
Well, I think it's okay if a few things are cut out of a game to have them allowed for ages 13 and up, but the part where I think "What the hell?" is the fact that even 17+ games are getting cut.
I mean, here in Germany, it's clear that they think underage kids are stupid and have never seen blood before, but if they really thi
Gosh, this title is so corny but oh well, it fits.
It's been pretty much exactly two weeks now since I quite spontaneously packed my bags and moved my ass north-bound from Frankfurt to Hamburg. For those who don't know, I've been offered a 2 month internship in the communications devision of Greenpeace Germany. I had applied for it back in April and heard nothing back until late August when they promised one of their employees would get back to me when he returned from his vacation. It was
Hey guys! I'm Nico, I'm wearing a hat with the colors of the German flag right now (I know it's not relevant to the topic, but whatever) and welcome to a new episode of: Nico Talks About Stuff, the blog where I talk about stuff.
Today's topic is something that annoys many gamers: Hackers and cheaters in online games. There are many types of hacks in games, and I will present them to you right here.
But wait! Before we begin, some of you might have seen the post called "Nico Talks About
Some new lyrics. Enjoy.
to the burning stage
Fading in the envy
of men from every age
From the canvas to the warfield
the body to the mind
Epilogue to the destruction
The theory we seek to find
Tell me again, what you do
Laughter falls from the flares to you
Exile the happenstance
There's more to you than first glance
You are not above, you've sunk too low
Here I stand
More or less intact
Sunshine on my back
In fact, I'm fine
I'm getting by
One reassurance at a time
I would write myself
A battle hymn
And sing the words
Day in, day out
Has a self-defeating way
Of burning out
And seeding doubt
I stare down my demons
But they don't tend to flinch
The guilt, the insecurity
And all this fucking baggage
If there's one thing that I've learned
It's that this shit is made of plastic:

Chapter/Verse/Hymn 2 - Pre-Consultation.
I always imagined therapy to have a big chair to lie on. Y'know, just like the movies or TV. Turns out not, maybe when I get to my first proper assessment.
So today was my pre-consultation aka "We booked this appointment for you months ago, remind us why you are her
Hi all. I just wanted to come on here because I haven't posted in a while!
I have been inactive online due to multiple things...here are some:
I have been incredibly ill since September 17th. I was admitted to hospital for sixteen days and am still ill. I was told everything in the book; that I'm allergic to mushrooms, that I'm pregnant, that it's more kidney issues, kidney stones (which I had before, it wasn't that pain), etc. I have a fischer on my colon which is over 2" in l

'Sup dudes, my name is Wilhelm. Nico isn't here yet, but I'm supposed to tell you this entry is all about Facebook. That was my idea! I told him to write something about Facebook, but he didn't want to do it because it has nothing to do with games. However, then I gave him some orange juice. It tasted so good he instantly told me I have good ideas. Everything went perfectly. Have fun!

So this is a blog! Pretty cool, I guess.
I'm not sure what I'll put on here, probably just whatever comes to mind. If there's anything you'd like to see, then you can message me and I'll see.
New here, so anyone who wants to reach out and chat, go ahead please!
It's five thirty AM and I haven't slept. I've been thinking about too many things recently, I feel like all I've done for the past month is think. It's so loud, this weirdly boisterous silence in my head.
Mom, all I want is to come see you again. Maybe I'll feel like less of a failure, as a person, as a daughter, if I can visit you without having a fucking panic attack. Because that's what happened isn't it? I managed to talk to your grave for a grand total of maybe two minutes, like you co
Hello everyone! My name is Nico (you don't say?) and welcome to the sixth entry of Nico Talks About Stuff, where I... talk about stuff. Mostly about gaming. Creative, right?
So, today's topic is how the media treats gamers. By now, it's no secret anymore that the media thinks that gamers like me are retarded kids with lack of reality. And of course we're the ugliest people alive. But sometimes I wonder: Well, who are the ones with a lack of reality here?

This one goes out to the Florida man,
The crazy motherfucker on the news
He rode a parasail into a hurricane
He gave an alligator weed and booze
That gator is still out on a bender
He bought some gas station mystery drugs
The Florida man used a homemade flamethrower
Inside his house to kill some bugs
I think there is a Fl
The start of a new collection of lyrics. Enjoy.
once told me how to live
The stone strives
for learning to forgive
only pulls so far
and the essence
grabs the remnants of the star
The heart pulsates
until it hatches
And we're free
then come the relapses
the beam supports you
The darkness ahead,

Green Day – Nimrod: Feature.
In 1997, Californian band Green Dayreleased their most underrated but diverse record in the form of Nimrod, an album bubbling with hooks and dark edged lyricism. The band had to prove they were still relevant after the disappointing Insomniac, a record which did have its hits, but never hit those meteoric heights. Dookie did so in 1994. That opus brought Green Day into the limelight, a light so vibrant and crucial.
Dookie was a statement of in
Hey guys, and welcome back to "Nico Talks About Stuff"! Now, hold onto your seats, this might be a bit crazy, but... my name's Nico. Today's topic is Nintendo!
Here's something most people don't know: Nintendo is older than you might've thought. The company was founded in 1889.
And if anyone says something like "What? Nintendo made video games 100 years ago?", please spell IQ for me.
Well, Nintendo sold playing cards back then. But who would've thought that Nintendo would ever mak

I really don't know what I'm going to post here, but I want it to be good. I want it to mean something.
So, I'm going into therapy next month, and that kinda scares me. Scares me because I'm going to be properly ripping my brain out and spewing its content out for the first time.

I thought now would be a good time to tell ya'll about the wonderful time my favorite best friend from Sweden, @I don't care, and I had exactly two months ago when she visited me in Germany.
Everything started about 10 months ago, when we met in the GDC chatroom (that small one on the bottom right corner of your window that <1% of you use) and realized that we were soulmates who just happened to roast ourselves into each other's hearts on an online forum of our favorite band. Our friend
