Directly from afterlife: Blood

From 1998 another good old game!
Thanks Monolith for this treasure!
Some screenshots from Blood:

You can buy (2,5€) from: http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/one_unit_whole_blood
You can play it in your Windows Seven OS too (32 or 64bit, no problem).

I have too many games paused now to play this one too. :-P
Next time, added in the playlist.

Prince of Persia

This isn't Altair from Assassin's Creed, it's only the special skin for the main character.
Some years ago I've played "Prince of Persia", the apocryphal chapter of the "normal" timeline of the Prince and occasionally I played it for fun (like today).
Obviously finished long time ago.

I was in love with the Princess, but this doesn't interfere with my judgement. :-D
I love the graphic style and the design of characters and levels.
I love the exchange of words between the two characters, which gives them a good personality (and their arguments and jokes are funny).
I love the stunts to be performed during the game.
The story isn't bad, but there are some bad points:
  •  there is no gameover...
  •  what you should do
When you fall down or when you died in another way the Princess helps you and puts you in the position like before you died.
It's a problem? For me not much, it's like a checkpoint, maybe is used too often...

What you should do? In the beginning of the game you know what you should do. You know everything.
You don't know some details, but you know WHAT you should do in the "infected lands" and where/what they are. Too obvious, it's like a routine task,  your mind thinks "booooring!". 
The only curiosity are: bosses, how levels are... but the actions are still known.

In conclusion a good game, maybe too repetitive, nice the two endings, both leave a bitter taste (ops, spoiler :-P, but the game is old).

There is a DLC for Xbox360.

Indiana Jones: concept art and more

I really love the old trilogy of Indiana Jones, so there are some concept art drawings of the first movie:

These drawings are sketched by Jim Steranko: http://www.thedrawingsofsteranko.com/raiders.html

I found an interesting website about a game developed with AGS (only Windows):
I'm downloading it.

Waiting for the new Tomb Raider

I am a big fan of the Tomb Raider saga, I have played the first trilogy on PlayStation (95>99) and then the other chapters like:
- Tomb Raider 4
- Tomb Raider Chronicles

One year ago I have played "Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness" for PC, this chapter was a bit underestimated, but I like it so much.

The new generation games like:
- Tomb Raider Legend
- Tomb Raider Underworld
are nice games that I suggest, but the best is "Tomb Raider Anniversary", the remake of the original Tomb Raider. Awesome remake.

Some screenshot from my FRAPS directory, enjoy them.
Nostalgia incoming.

It's now ~3 euro on Steam, what are you waiting for?

Graphic is a bit old (2007), but is nice, only one problem for me: shadows.
Shadows are like with DirectX8.1beta.

C you in the programmers heaven...

Who is Ritchie?

Directly from the past: Postal 2

I never tried this game... so I downloaded the DEMO


I don't understand the mission etc... but:
- pissing in the guy's mouth
- kicking his ass
- a bit of gasoline in his back when he is running away
- a match and *puff*, a human torch
- more kicking his ass with some tools till he died.

Now I can stop to hide corpse in my garden, this game satisfy me. :-D   yeah, just kidding.

Back in time the reviewers were not very happy about this game...

Iphone 4S revealed: foreveralone approved

8Mpx camera, some other things, but Siri is for :foreveralone:

New mouse! Logitech G700

Time for a new mouse!
I bought the Logitech G700, it's very good (66 euro).

Some features:
- cordless or corded mouse (you can use the wire for recharge the batteries);
- 2 modes scroll wheel;
- customizable buttons;
- dpi changer button;
- profile changer button;
- good material.

With SetPoint 6.30 you can customize every button for your preferred use and you can store your preferences in various profiles (macros, speed, dpi).
I had some problem with the SetPoint installation due to the old version already uninstalled, a cleaning in the registry resolves everything.
