Indiana Jones and the fate of Atlantis [nostalgia]

ScummVM (or Steam) and you can play this old, but beautiful adventure by LucasArts, the longest as someone told me.

Have not you ever tried it?
Jokes, beautiful environments and is not linear as it seems, the best part is that the AI ​​varies certain puzzles.

Well, you can't expect too much, it's from 1992!

Ok, let me conclude this so then I will play the previous chapter:
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure

Time to dig tombs and whatever.

Textual old style RPG online


Farm candies and lollipops, fight enemies, deal with frogs, witches and merchants, buy things, discover places etc...

Start eating candies (for HPs) and buy a good sword.

Click the merchant's hat for 100 free candies! And the lollipop icon for low prices.

candies rpg lollipop farm



it's drug.


Defeating the Dragon you obtain (if you kill some unicorn) the Magical Horn to regain health during quests.

With a GMOOH potion you can visit other places like Desert, Sea, Cow Level

Automation: are you a car engineer? I'm not.

I love weird games and "tech" games like this!
Build, setup and test your engine with different parts/materials/configurations.

PS: alt+tab during the game in some screen like tutorial, etc... there are bugs that allow you to use other engine parts.

[Nostalgia] I'm full throttled

Do you know Tim Schafer? Do you know LucasArts?
Yep, Grim Fandango, Monkey Island, etc...  (Psychonauts is by Tim Schafer too)

Now my hands are on Full Throttle!

From 1995 (and thanks ScummVM!)

Full Throttle Scumm Tim Schafer Lucas Arts

This game uses (obviously) the Scumm engine and the inventory and the actions are hidden on the screen:  a with a long left click on an object a menu appears with actions (look, talk, punch or action with hands, kick) and with a right click you can view your inventory.

I'm stuck at the dump, let's see if I can do something.

Clive Barker's Undying [nostalgia]


I have an unstoppable hunger for old games!
So this too has been digested!

Undying is a game developed in 2001 with the Unreal Engine by EA with the story written by Clive Barker.

In the game you have to help Patrick Galloway in his adventure with strange weapons and equally strange spells to help his friend, among twists, creepy monsters and lugubrious environments.

Some screen:

Easter eggs:  WTF guys!

CAD with LEGO: MLcad + LDraw

I'm building a Lego pc case and I need some help with the parts/building project and I found this:

MLCad only and Website:

MLCad + LDraw libraries (if you don't have LD... use this):

- The melting point of Lego bricks (I read 100°C somewhere)
- The hot plastic will make the air healthier?

- Where to order kilos and kilos of bricks?
- Grounding? (Pc cases are metal)
- Electric/magnetic radiations?
I'm crazy?

Virtual Reality

What happened to the Virtual Reality so often dreamed in the 80's and 90's?

virtual reality now?

What do we have today? Especially in the homes of consumers?

Sony Move: ok, but it seems very primitive
Nintendo Wiimote: Like Move, more or less
MS Kinect: Good, detects motion, objects (with nothing in your hands) and "textures" (pictures).

But none of these immerses the player / user in a virtual world as we thought then.

romantic virtual reality vision

What is missing? The classic goggles to wear, maybe with orientation sensors to direct the viewport (the view of the game, the camera in the 3D environment) and then show to the player what he should see.

MS IllumiRoom for the Kinect 2 and XBOX720
The next Xbox will have, as an accessory, a projector to project the game on the walls of your room (maybe using the Kinect to see where you're looking at?). Is it considered AR (augmented reality) or VR?
We'll see ...

Nope, Google Glass is not VR imho, but AR like Google Googles in your ... googles.

What do you think? What's the next step? What's the true VR?

GG EA: shitstorm on SimCity

ea simcity

EA has released the new SimCity game and  has generated online a shitstorm of considerable size, these are the main reasons:

1. Always online (DRM)
2. No offline mode
3. No terraforming
4. Small cities (future DLC?)
5. No control over regional transport (future DLC?)
6. No subways (future DLC?)
7. Cloud saves only
8. Origin client
9. Dumbed down gameplay
10. Bugs
11. Busy servers
12. Fake reviews with high votes

Windows BLUE, what's on your wishlist?

What's on your wishlist for the next Windows update?
  • better search (All, Apps, Settings, File)
  • more personalization without mess with regedit (i.e.:filetype icons, start screen backgrounds, etc...)
  • more out-of-the-box features
  • better standard apps (and many apps don't have a interface in docked mode)
  • better windows tiling (modernUI too), magnetic windows edges on desktop
  • modernUI apps work everywhere (WP8, W8, W8RT)
  • apps can run independently of Start Screen (i.e.: multi-monitor setup)
  • rebuild of old dialogs (i.e.: mouse/screensaver settings dialogs are from 1995 or 1998 or 2001?)
