@Alan_M @Rogueywon Thanks a bunch!

I remember playing Monty Mole on Amstrad CPC at my dad's work as a kid, but any subtleties have totally flown over my head.

@Rogueywon Wanted to ask the same question. Not an expert on UK history of the eighties, but Manic Miner didn't seem to have anything to do with actual real life events.

As for Monty Mole - could someone tell a bit more about it links with miners' strikes or point me in the right direction (article or something)?

Half-Life remake Black Mesa delays Xen level release one final time

BartsBlue

10 months ago

Not a problem. We've waited so long for this that additional couple months won't change a thing. I'd much rather have it December 2018 but polished up to the level of the rest of Black Mesa, instead of rushed finale to otherwise wonderful reimagining.

@Plumbus As someone who is also from outside of the anglosaxon world and uses alphabet with weird diacritical signs, I do understand why he does that. Easier to pronounce and to remember. Getting your name buthchered time and time again makes you simplify it.

By the way, Teslagrad really is a lovely game. If you haven't played it, try to catch up. I personally had most fun with it on Vita. Glad to hear they were able to make some profit out of the game.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia review

BartsBlue

11 months ago

@KinkyBoot If you have 3DS, start with Awakening - it's an excellent starting point, it's smart, charming, doesn't require knowledge of any previous instalments (except for bits of DLC, but that is not obligatory), difficulty is not overwhelming. It is not one of the highest rated 3DS games by accident.

The appeal of Nintendo's new handheld play is plain to see

BartsBlue

12 months ago

I never was a big fan of 3D,but after playing on New 3DS XL I was hooked.It's hard to describe, but 3DS games that use 3D well create something like beautiful little dioramas, small worlds that I can peer into.

Even simple 2D platformer looks better with 3D enabled (Steamworld Heist, Cave Story, Mutant Mudds, Shovel Knight), but some titles are just spectacular (Mario Kart 7 and the sense of depth, a very Ghibli-like Attack of Friday Monsters, artistic backgrounds of Bravely Default or some levels of Fire Emblem: Awakening).

It is something special and - which comes as a surprise to me - I am unhappy it won't be continued.

One afterthought, though - what do jellied eels have in common with deals?

I mean, okay, "Jelly Deals" and "jellied eels" are homonymes, but does confusing them bring any additional humouristic value?

Thank you! I actually had it under my nose: in Dishonored there is a brand of "Pratchett's jellied eels".

@tjtjtj Question from non-native speaker: why is that? What is supposed to be humouristic about this name? Similarity to "jolly", as in "jolly good deals" or something along these lines?

I actually am curious.

@AmorousBadger Same here. After the first Walking Dead always waited for the whole series to come up. After buying Vita port of it, never bought another one. I caught up with Borderlands and GoT thanks to recent Telltale bundle.

Wolf Among Us was great, though. Highly recommend that to everyone.

Sunless Sea - Zubmariner review

Zub, boyz?

But weak puns aside, I have to say it is a very good DLC, both expanding the original Sunless Sea and to a degree ironing out some of its kinks. Makes for much zmoother zailing...

I'll see myself out, sorry.

Bloodborne director reveals his favourite boss from the "Souls" series

BartsBlue

3 years ago

Guilty as charged! I was one of these invaders, specifically hunting for poor souls (pun inteded) around that level and at the right soul level (thirtish, if I remember correctly).

I especially recall one encounter where I really did a d**k move: waited just next to the fog and once a very unlucky player entered it, BAM, giant axe in the kidneys, health drops to less than half. I honestly wouldn't hold it against him (her?) if they rage quit at that moment. But they did not, they tried to put up a fight. Whoever you are, player whose name I've long forgotten, I salute you!

I do have Mirror's Edge myself, but on disc, so I've got this for the convenience of having it on hdd, just like one of early commenters. I also have NFS:MW on PS3 from PS+, but thought it would be cool to play it on Vita sometimes.

Very cool! Keep it up, EA.

Disclaimer: I am Polish and I might be biased towards Polish studio. Hell, I probably am.

But whatever little I played of demo versions so far seemed fine, if a little generic. It is not quite up there with * Souls series, that's true. But it's entertaining, has a couple new ideas (boss fights!) and is rather pretty. So I'd give it 7.5 and will be buying my copy.

Just my two cents.

I for one found it extremely overhyped. It's not an RPG, there's little to no place for proper tactical thinking and the story is chock-full of anime cliches. Didn't like it one bit.

Sony insists Vita is here to stay

BartsBlue

4 years ago

Vita is excellent piece of hardware and there are some gret games available on it, but my impression is that Sony just gave up on it.

Officially stating (again) that there want be any new high calibre titles coming to Vita is like saying "we don't really care anymore". Which is a damn shame, especially given how much Nintendo is doing recently to push 3DS.

Another great Sony console with potential, only this time Sony didn't even try to fight for it. I would say I will not buy Vita successor, but I don't think they will come up with another handheld anyways.
