Games / Re: Last game played...
« on: Today at 08:55:43 am »
Last game played (for the past 5 weeks or so) is Stardew Valley.
It has utterly, utterly charmed me, but I think I'm reaching the point where it's time to say adieu.

I know that Stardew Valley was inspired by the Harvest Moon games, but I have never played them, despite the proliferation of the series.

I'm looking for some recommendations regarding Harvest Moon- whats the best version out there, closest in style to Stardew Valley?
Ideally on the Wii U or 3DS Virtual Console.

Most of you regular YouTube viewers have probably already seen this, but I was just sent the link recently.
Very funny, and spot on too.

"Poe Damaron is my most trusted agent and I sent him on the most important mission the Rebellion had, and which was important to me personally, I trust him more than anyone in the whole of the Rebellion, even you, but I am specifically trying to teach him a lesson about going off and doing things on his own because that might result in deaths of people willing to follow him and others who will die as collateral and this is an especially precarious time for us all where any action might kill dozens, if not thousands of people and doom the galaxy to eternal fascism... what was I saying again?  Oh yes: don't tell him the plan if I get injured or something LOL.  Anyway, I'm just going to go sit on the bridge with Akbar for a minute.  BRB."

Its almost as if Johnson filmed the scene where they patronizingly patted 'troublesome' comatose Poe on the head first, then worked backwards from that moment, no matter how preposterous the plot.

Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander #1
While I think the cover was a bit lackluster, the issue itself delivered. Swords, sandals, gore and fancy things to say. Pleasantly surprised by this issue.

Big fan of 300, so had to pick this up.
Great to see that Miller is recovering from ill health and is back doing what he does best.

I've also been enjoying another Dark Horse book recently; Hungry Ghosts by Anthony Bourdain & talented chums. A series of food themed short horror stories in the vein of Vertigo / 2000AD. Really charming 4 issue mini series, with one issue left to go.

I'm not one for standard superhero fare lately, but I gave The Terrifics a shot on a whim, issue 1 and 2 were only €2.99 each.
Decentish, but not really my bag. I'll pick up the next trade of Black Hammer instead of continuing with it.

Hope you did the Lotto this week Jim.

I'm not sure a lot of the hate for TLJ will soften with time

Don't think so either.

Full Metal Jacket star R. Lee Ermey the savage drill instructor. He was a real Marine and went to Vietnam.

Currently climbing over the Pearly Gates quicker than old people f*ck.
RIP R. Lee.

Prog / Re: Prog 2074:Psiren Song

Just catching up on a few weeks worth of Progs, and I must say, this was the strongest one I've read in ages.

This all too brief Dredd story was simply top shelf stuff. The non-eye contact between Joe and Gerhart as he took the Long Walk was just Wagnerian.
Artwork in the entire Prog was second to none, just losing half a point from a perfect 10 for the coloring in Anderson. I'd have much preferred some monochrome Roach.

I've always had a bit of a bee in my bonnet with Strontium Dog since Johnny's resurrection (was never on board with it to be honest), but this was the first episode that softened my black Max Bubba heart. Brilliant stuff.

All wrapped in a great cover by talented forumite Mimikeke- looking forward to seeing more of her work.

who's Sam btw?

Judge Sam, from Williams' Enceladus arc (and follow-up story with the cloaking device ninjas).

Has Urban's recent casting as the lead in a new Amazon series Butcherd the chances he'll be on board for this?

the classroom sequences in particular contain much that is worthy. 

We don't wanna know how many times a chungwan in your class stenciled "LOVE YOU" to her eyelids.

All a bit of a moot point regarding the Nemesis figure- they were sold out by the time I checked the website at around 7.00pm last night.

Thanks for the recommendations. I really like short story collections so I'll definitely give 20th Century Ghosts a look.

20th Century Ghosts is a very fine collection indeed.
The opener, 'Best New Horror', being the pick of the bunch for me.

I'd also rate his first novel Heart Shaped Box very highly.

Due to clinically diagnosed Star Wars Apathy I managed to avoid even the trailer for this until I was snared in a cinema seat yesterday morning.

Pre-The Last Jedi I'd probably have been air punching my way from smile to grin, now that the veil has been lifted it looks like a loada pointless tosh.
