    Telltale Games closing

    Curious - what will happen to this IP now they’ve gone into receivership? Presuming someone could buy up the catalogue and continue to publish but guess over time there are limits on the licences? (Well, those self published games) Just thinking something like their Monkey Island - Wiiware discontinued, not sure if it’s on Steam but with so many of these digital only releases is there a chance they will be lost over time? Or is it the pirates who will end up ironically archiving output like this?
  2. Well blow me it works Find the keyboard is a bit too sticky/ slow to respond for my typing which is a shame. Message says back up battery needs changing. But quite a cute little thing to find for £1.
  3. Funnily enough I was wanting to get a Bluetooth portable keyboard to connect to my phone for writing...but part of me is hoping I can get this to work instead
  4. I got this. Think from this page there’s some interest in old Psion pdas. Guy was packing up, wanted £2, I offered him 1. No stylus pen or flash card, yet to put batteries in and see if it works. My kids thought it was cool the way it flipped up and the keyboard came out If it doesn’t work maybe I can make a 90s cyberpunk film and use it as a prop.

    Shenmue 1&2

    This is absolutely mad - hats off to Yu’s crazy attention to things The moon in Shenmue 2 is not a texture. It’s an actual 3D object in the distance correctly lit by the sun direction. This produces accurate phases. We were surprised by this level of detail! The Lucky Hit games adjust the physical behaviour of the ball based on the weather and temperature, calculated by the time of day.
  6. I was and still am a huge Sputnik fan and the advert on their album Flaunt It along with the upfront image in C+VG (think it was Degville holding up James’ decapitated head) had me very curious and excited. Think gtw64 ran a piece on it where they found an incomplete version - could this really be the finished game??? Starting bid is hilarious - at least the guy says he’s open to offers https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/ULTRA-RARE-THE-SIGUE-SIGUE-SPUTNIK-CORP-GAME-FOR-CBM64-FLOPPY-DISK-1-OF-A-KIND/253849111400?_mwBanner=1&_rdt=1

    Mr. Robot - Amazon video

    Definitely. I’m glad it has a proper conclusion as opposed to stringing it out unnecessarily.

    Shenmue 1&2

    I could be wrong but don’t recall any date with Nozomi - it’s painfully unrequited all the way through And I’m guessing Ryo might find some excuse not to go to the docks so you do the motorbike sequence. Lovely seeing so much love for this game all the years later. For those who’ve enjoyed 1 and about to embark on 2 for the first time I envy you. Ramps up everything and is just amazing. What a double bill of games!

    Shenmue 1&2

    I don’t have a PS4 but will get one when my copy of Shenmue 3 is imminent...but in the meantime I’d love to go back into this. Tempted to get the Bone version but thinking would make more sense stockpiling the PS4 version and play at a later date...my DC is still set up...wonder if S3 will be able to read a save game and carry it over if you play the remasters?

  14. Hi 'mukkers, Always found you to be an appreciative bunch when it comes to my film gubbins. In the last week or so I've finally finished my latest short film Knock Knock Knock Knock (so named as during the protracted production Eli Roth beat me to it with Knock Knock :) ) I've nicknamed it my "juvenilia" film, in that it's like a film I would have loved to have made when I was 17 so there's something contradictory wonderful to harken back to that age now I'm in my early 40s, but also I accept a bit ridiculous. It's a homage to Argento, Fulci and Bava - definitely some key elements I've cherry picked from their films...but I also discovered Hausu during pre-production and the "anything goes" insanity/ joy of that film became a definite influence. In my opinion it also has a bloody amazing soundtrack specially written by Umberto who I discovered thanks to the Hail To The Synth topic in the Music folder several years ago, been a huge fan and got to meet him when my mate put him on in Nottingham...we chatted and he was up for doing the soundtrack, which I am very chuffed with. The film has now gone off to festivals worldwide, will see what I get back, but in the meantime I've knocked up a little trailer for it which you can see below... Any shares of it etc would be truly appreciated to help try and gain some attention for it. I will share the finished film on here eventually, but for once I'm not letting the film out on t'net until after I've given it a fair crack at film festivals, then at least if it gets knocked back from festival submissions I know it's not because it was up online. Hope you enjoy this taste of it
