Re: Random finds at used game store

Tinhead is really fun. The jumping is twitchy and bizarre (you go up and down at a constant speed, so the trajectory is a triangle instead of an arc), but everything else is excellent. It's a bit like Vectorman , with big levels to explore and lots of enemies to shoot. Really nice (if twangy) Genes...

It's very brown and takes place mostly inside an enormous dying tree. The tree's made of stone for some reason, but the atmosphere is still autumnal, especially in contrast with the ending cutscene.

Re: Book Review: Ready Player One

I don't have a lot of respect for Ready Player One . It's basically a catalog of things that you're supposed to recognize and feel excited about purely because somebody mentioned them in a book.

Re: Questions Regarding Caring for Cats?

I didn't see this thread, or I would have replied earlier. Sorry for the wait. The basics really aren't much to deal with. Feed the cat twice a day. Clear out the kitty litter with a litter scoop once a day if possible. Leave the cat with a friend or relative if you can't be there. Scratching is a b...

Re: Ray Harryhausen (And Stop-Mo in General.)

Parts 1 and 2 are available for purchase at the movie's website. I'm going to hold out until Part 3 myself, so I can watch them in one go instead of waiting after the first two.

Re: 2017/8/29: Playstation 3: Cabela's Adventure Camp, Dark Souls 2

Re: Ray Harryhausen (And Stop-Mo in General.)

Phil Tippet talks about a movie he's been working on for the past 30yrs. There's some interesting time lapse footage of him working on the animation; you can see the characters moving naturally with Tippet and other animators buzzing around them in fast motion. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=GLKxoo9...
