Made my way through Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars. Despite the Directors Cut being hit and miss at times, the game is still a joy to play.
I'm now making my way through Smoking Mirror Remastered which seems to be mostly in tact, and even appears to have gained a little from the remastering.

On a side note, I beat Detective Grimoire last week. It was ok, no real thrills but it was enjoyable enough to occupy my during a several hour bus trip without getting bored.

Ohh, another fight in an Uncharted thread.

You call that a fight?

Anyways. Here's the hub of Game Informer coverage UC4 for anyone interested. The videos were also uploaded on their YouTube page, which are also in the 'Features/Interviews' playlist, I mention it only if anyone likes better to see videos there than at the site.

By these forums standards I do, which is a good thing.
Though, last time it happened CDFN was never heard from again.

This is actually looking rather good.
I like the art style and what I've seen of the gameplay, but a few more frames of animation would do it a world of good.

Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars - Directors Cut.
Oddly enough, it actually seems to be a downgrade from the the original game, despite the added content.

I recall hearing this a lot. I'll likely just stick with the originals for all eternity. The mood is too great to ruin. For new entries though, I just got Angel of Death from steam weekly sale, since it apparently made it there at some point when I wasn't looking. Will probably start on it very soon and a few friends told good things about Serpent's Curse, so it's about time I catch up.

Then you might want to have a look at this weeks Humble Weekly Bundle

Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars - Directors Cut.
Oddly enough, it actually seems to be a downgrade from the the original game, despite the added content.
The new "art" is mostly redundant and quite clearly clashes with the original games direction. I do like the new inventory, a little streamlined but it does the job just fine.
The Nico stuff is OK though it doesn't do much to expand the story and arguably breaks up the flow of the main game. At least the puzzles seem to be intact and don't appear to have been dumbed down or removed, which is what I fear most out of these "remasters" (Dracula games come to mind).

Overall, I don't think the directors cut did the game any favours, but even with the slight downgrade the game is still a joy to play.

Ohh, another fight in an Uncharted thread. Is it that time of year already? My how time flies.
Anyhow, I'm assuming this is a PS4 exclusive, which is a shame because I'm not planning to pick up a console any time soon (and if I do it may, oddly enough, be a Wii U)
Would be nice to cap off the tetralogy (Unless the vita game counts, which would bring it up to five) but I'll make do with the three PS3 games.

So this is happening:

"go to vogue.co.uk and type (on your keyboard) up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A and watch what happens when you keep pressing A"

Tried it out: CONFIRMED.

It...actually does work... I'm not sure what to make of this. A gaming website I'd understand but Vogue?
Still, makes me want to try out the contra code on other sites now.

Mostly CS:GO on stream.
I'm still trying to find both the time and willpower to pick up Final fantasy XIII again and finish my playlog.
Need to finish off Breath of Death VII too. With over 5 hours logged into that game I should have been done by now.

I'm pretty sure Coleman wasn't confirmed for next season until the Christmas special aired. Her character was built on being surrounded by mystery so I'm not surprised that people find Clara less interesting now that the "impossible girl" and "someone making sure they meet and stay together" angles are resolved. I still like her as a character, but she's nowhere near as interesting as she was before.
Danny Pinks arch was very weak and I wouldn't be surprised if the reason they rushed it was because they weren't sure weather Coleman would be back for another season.

Its Danny Pink you're thinking of.
Just because he's dead doesn't really mean he's going to stay dead.
They could bring him back to life, they can have Clara travel back in time to see him again and get knocked up somewhere along the way or even
bring him back from the past as a series regular only to have a dramatic final episode where he "has to go back" knowing he's about to die.
Plenty of options really.
It's a show where writers can do whatever the  heck they want as long as they come up with a good enough excuse for it.

Personally, I was hoping for a somewhat darker and more complicated Doctor.
Not to say the season was bad, but I don't think it lived up to the promise of having the doctor push his moral boundaries.
In fact, I'd have to say that Smith's Doctor was actually darker and creepier at times while Capaldi's just comes across as older and grumpier.
The Danny Pink story arch was also rather rushed and it didn't really have the dramatic effect they ware going for.

It was fun, and Nick Frost was a fun-enough Santa.

I thought that was the show's little Christmas joke (Saint Nick and Jack Frost) until I read your comment and looked it up. Having a guy actually called Nick Frost play Santa, brilliant :)

Once again, at 10pm CET (that's roughly an hour from the time of posting), we delve deep into the madness that is Breath of Death VII. Will it be the thrilling conclusion? Probably not, but whatever adventures await DEM and his pals...will have to wait, because today we finally clear out that bloody cave.

The cave has now been fully explored and progress has been made, outstanding! At this pace I might just wrap this up in under 30 hours!

Today at 10pm CET (that is roughly 2 hours from the time this is posted) I will be doing part three of my incredibly "epic" and totally worth watching (would I lie to you?) run. Last time I made stellar progress and in just under 90 minutes managed to get absolutely nothing done, so today we turn it up to 11 and start backtracking as I attempt to loot a previous dungeon! Fantastic, if that's not a quality Tuesday evening I don't know what is.

Another day, another stream. After an hour I managed to finish the caste dungeon and beat the boss. Wouldn't be that much of an issue if that bastard didn't keep chugging down potions that restored ALL his health whenever I was about to deliver the final blow. Not enough time to do the backtracking I promised, but I'll get around to it next time...no really...it'll be worth the wait. Everyone knows that backtracking in RPGs is like wine, it only gets better with time. Yeah, wine, lets go with that.

Not to worry, The idea was to go back to finish looting the cave that connected the previous area with Motherbound but I ended up getting thrown in the dungeon and pretty much spent the entire stream getting wiped and starting over because I kept forgetting to save when I cleared a floor. Took me a while to figure out that the armour enemies have insane defence and I need to use armour ignoring attacks on them like Litas snipe. You missed out on a lot of bumbling but progress wise I'm still more or less where I left off last time.
It should still be floating about in my past broadcasts (at least for a few days) if you get the urge to catch up :)
29  Media / Game Journals / Re: Breath of Death VII (Livestream on twitch) on: December 22, 2014, 04:17:20 AM
Today at around 10pm CET I plan on streaming part two of my "epic" journey through Breath of Death VII. It'll be just as bad as the first one, so if you want to waste an hour of your life that you'll never ever get back, drop by my channel.

Stream is over, and after over an hour I've made almost no progress! I'm getting my moneys worth out of this one, that's for sure. As it stands I'm almost 5 hours in and I  only just got my 4th party member. The dungeons are getting trickier and I can't just mash my way through the fights anymore (I found that out the hard way). Having fun, I assume I have about two or so streams until I beat this sucker but at my pace it may very well end up being more.

Breath of Death VII. The game built on satire, nostalgia and countless references.
