Walkthrough Wednesday: The Great Kitchen Escape

With Thanksgiving just around the corner I assume most of us will be at home with our families either filling up our guts or just trying to stay out of the way of whoever is making Thanksgiving dinner. With that being said one place I do not want to be caught in is the kitchen. Lets just say I’m really thankful for whoever makes me food and that I spend more time trying to escape the kitchen then cook in it. This brings us to this weeks “Walkthrough Wednesday” which will help you master your escape tactics in our favorite kitchen game “The Great Kitchen Escape“.

In this culinary thriller you are trapped in the kitchen which normally isn’t a huge problem but what happens when you run out of food!?!? It’s up to you to find the right tools and make your escape before there is nothing left to eat. No you don’t get to eat anything while you break out! There are more important things to do (LIKE ESCAPE!). I want to send a shout out to dk00111 for putting this great walk through together. Thanks to him the kitchen will never be our end again! Stay tuned to the blog for more great  Walkthrough Wednesdays and keep on playing!

Top 5 Friday: Rock Star Fantasy Games

I WANNA ROCK!

I WANNA ROCK!

Alright, gamers, let’s have a heart to heart. How many of you are band nerds? Perhaps show choir nerds? Do you spend your days studying your John Philip Sousa pieces, preparing for the next band concert, or diligently perfecting your jazz hands? I won’t hold it against you, you guys, as I was also a complete and total band nerd. I happily signed up for marching band, and was usually the first to arrive in band class. I could play all my major scales on my saxophone before most other students, and used my break time to study and practice arpeggios. Never let anyone tell you being a band nerd is anything less than cool, because you know what we have that other people don’t?

The ability to relate to rock stars.

No matter how small, every band nerd has a secret desire to be a rock star. Whether it’s Lady GaGa, Avenged Sevenfold, or Josh Groban, we all want to be on stage performing, having the audience loving every second of our performance. And truthfully, we understand the pressure rock stars face, we know the level of dedication it takes, and we know how many bad decisions it takes to rock out with your socks out.

So, dear gamers, here are the top five rock star fantasy games on AddictingGames. Hey, if RPG dorks can have their moments, why can’t we??

5- My Party Band

Ah, bass, drums, and guitar. So simple, yet so effective. Imagine, if you can, performing on a stage with your two best friends, bringing the rock and being the roll. You and your buddies are the ultimate rock stars in this game, and the sweet riffs you get to pick from solidify that fact!

4- Celebrity Smackdown

No true rock star has made it until they have a public feud with a celebrity. It confirms your ability to kick some butt, and rock out while doing so! Did your tuba get stolen by a jock? Were you walking to your locker for wearing your band or choir uniform? Get your revenge out fantasy style in Celebrity Smackdown!

3- Stick Band
Similar to My Party Band, but just that much more challenging. Test your rocking out skills with Stick Band, and be the ultimate Stick Rocker!

2- Dress to Rock
The best thing about being a rock star is being able to wear crazy clothes, and getting away with it. It also is the most important. Test your rock star style knowledge in Dress to Rock, and wear your Mohawk with pride!

1- Rock Band Rampage
Did you say you didn’t want to see any green M&M’s backstage? Did you request 3-foot lavender candles, and exactly twenty-seven bottles of sparkling water? Were none of these requests met? Well, take your rage out in Rock Band Rampage, and show those show promoters who the rock star of this venue is!!
