  1. It fucks up my iPad and thinks the sodding site is in Vietnamese. It’s impressive and all, it can the op please change the title so I don’t throw all my toys out of the pram.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Rouge On: A day in the life of an Alderaan Princess. (A Leia story)
  3. I’m definitely looking forward to that. Loved the art style of Firewatch and this seems even nicer (the woman’s hair is beautifully animated!) .

    Alien: Isolation

    Aside from it terrifying me, I’ve never been able to play it to too much simply because it just doesn’t work properly in my PC, and after so many crashes and so much tinkering trying to get the fucking thing to run I’ve effectively given up now. But, it is a remarkably atmospheric game.

    Yeah, the top of the staff is definitely on the wonk, but it's all good - it'll be nice to see one of my girls painted again!

    Alien: Isolation

    Just you wait. It’ll run out of juice at the worst time. Poo everywhere.

    And I think I'm pretty much done. More photos in this here spoilery bit:

    All things Yakuza!

    I might have posted this up a while back (can't remember!), but anyone wondering just what it is about the Yakuza games that makes 'em so damn unique and special could do worse than have a look at this little vid by Supereyepatchwolf. It's great. Also, I've got some sort of man-crush with Yakuza's creator...

    Favorite Gig?

    Don't really get to many gigs these days, but whenever she's over here I try my best to get to see a Portuguese singer called Mariza. She sings the traditional music of the country - Fado - but she is probably the greatest modern exponent of it. She's so bloody good that whilst I have absolutely no idea what the heck she's singing about it makes no difference to the emotional draw. Her albums are fine - you'd clearly be able to tell she has a wonderful voice - but the woman was just born to be in front of a stage and even though I've seen her around five times now, I always get chills watching and listening. Amazing stuff. Another really fucking amazing gig was when I first saw Afro Celt Sound System years back. I'd never really heard of them before, but a friend of mine urged me to come along and for most of the gig I was enjoying myself, but not thinking anything other than 'yup, they're pretty good'. And then all of a sudden there was this quite long dance beat that started (and they use all manner of ethnic drums and odd instruments to get this going). My friend said something along the lines of 'just wait for it...', and - BANG - fucking all hell broke loose and it was the most mental thing ever. Drunk hippies dancing all around the place, the beat was absolutely bonkers and after it'd all done I kind of collapsed in a bit of a haze. Bloody aces.

    And much more progress, due to finally getting into some sort of groove...

    Ah, that'll be it then - PC version here.

    South Park: The stick of truth

    I'm assuming it was only cut in certain regions? I distinctly remember playing through the anal probe bit!

    South Park: The stick of truth

    I wouldn't worry - there are so many more things in the game that go far and above what the TV show can do :p

    Star Wars Episode IX (December 2019)

    They really just want this trilogy to crowbar every sodding old character they can don't they? I do hope this means that they're really going to start from a clean slate for the new films.

    It’s been difficult to get motivated at the moment. Real life has been taking over huge amounts of time and energy, plus this weather isn’t exactly great for painting in . However, needs must and work has begun in earnest for my new project, which in theory should launch on KS sometime next month! Just so many parts to this set...around 25 I think! Eep.
