Spellrazor Is “A Haunted Videogame From 1981″

by Graham Smith

Spellrazor [official site] is a “creepy resurrection of a semi-mythical game considered lost back in 1981,” according to its Game Jolt page. It’s also a top-down shmup with 27 weapons, each one assigned to a different button on your keyboard, and a console where you can access the fictional story of the game’s own development. It’s also also free in its current alpha state and worth your time.

Frustrated Pirates Prophesise The Death Of Game Piracy

by Alec Meer

And on that bombshell

My eyebrow’s raised so high that it’s knocking plaster off the ceiling, but it’s worth sharing this oddity as a talking point if nothing else. It seems Just Cause 3 [official site]’s DRM is still presenting stiff competition to crackers over a month on from release, prompting one pirate collective to predict that we are in the game piracy end times. “According to current trends in the development of encryption technology, in two years time I’m afraid there will be no free games to play in the world.”

Obviously that’s garbage, both because people willingly make tons of free games and because many paid games choose not to include DRM at all, but maybe DRM really has become a new force to be reckoned with.

by Patrick Klepek

Media critic Anita Sarkeesian, in collaboration with other activists, has published Speak Up & Stay Safe, a guide to navigating harassment on the Internet. Even if you’ve been lucky enough to never deal with harassment, it’s a great reference guide to avoid sharing too much about yourself on the Internet, and to determine how much is already out there. (A lot, as you’ll soon learn!)

In ordering #5, self-driving cars will happily drive you around, but if you tell them to drive to a car dealership, they just lock the doors and politely ask how long humans take to starve to death.

Custom Super Mario World SNES Is A Thing Of Beauty

by Gergo Vas

Custom-themed, limited edition consoles weren’t really a thing back in the day of the SNES and the Genesis, so it’s up to a dedicated few to set things right. Zoki64 picked Super Mario World, the most obvious choice for his custom SNES.

by Nathan Grayson on Steamed, shared by Nathan Grayson to Kotaku

Kero Blaster, from the creator of indie classic Cave Story, is now on Steam. If you haven’t played the retro-style sidescroller on other platforms, now’s as good of a time as any. The latest version has more stages and a new mode and story. Also you are a frog. Frogs are cool.

Beerspresso: O café com toques de lúpulo

Beerspresso: O café com toques de lúpulo por Mexido de Ideias

Harmonizar drinks com café já é algo comum. Nós inclusive adoramos publicar receitas ou contar sobre os rótulos com notas cafeinadas. Mas os coffeelovers ao redor do mundo não cansam de nos surpreender. A novidade da vez é o Beerspresso, um espresso com toques de lúpulo (um dos principais ingredientes da cerveja).

beerspressoA técnica é uma invenção da cafeteria Taproom Coffee & Beer, localizada em Atlanta, nos Estados Unidos. Para produzir o Beerspresso, os baristas analisaram métodos de preparo de café gelado até decidir por um de origem japonesa. Para criar o sabor de cerveja, adicionaram lúpulo seco (que acentua as notas cítricas e florais do café). Ele não acrescenta graduação alcoólica ao café.

Além do lúpulo, um Beerspresso precisa ter a espuma característica da cerveja. Para isso, a cafeteria adiciona nitrogênio à bebida, garantindo uma espuma densa e cremosa. Segundo os produtores, ela lembra um pouco o leite vaporizado adicionado aos cappuccinos e espressos comuns.

Nós aqui do Mexido de Ideias ficamos curiosos e com vontade de experimentar. E você?
