Tenchu's the only decent stealth game!

Go back and play it right now, then let me know if you still stand by that...  :D

Wow Dry Run  doesn't get a good start does it.  I mean we have this character Flair who is ANGRY and uncontrolled. So much so that her passions run over when she realises the woman they've handed over to the cliched big bad is skinned or a map tattooed on her back. Apalled she draws her blade but is restrained by her clamer headed colleagues. 6 pages later after some relatively random violence she draws her blade again this time to kill and innocent for no other reason than she'll get in the way...


...and its this and the other just unconnected stuff that's just thrown at the strip that reminds me why I remember so little of it...

... mind prior I also forgot to comment on the end of Final Solution and to be honest its 'cos in re-reading it pretty thin. It lacks the impact I remember and to be honest aside from glorious Simon Harrison art followed by some lovely Colin MacNeill art the story goes grip in the way I remember and feels a little forced. Big shame this one didn't hold up to my memory of it.

She makes her peace with the Goth-King, who cancels his bounty, allowing Durham to walk off into the starset with an assassin-priest named Toroni (with whom she hooked up in Night of the Hunters). All of which paved the way for Durham to wake from cryo-sleep a thousand years in the future

Thanks Alec for that fabulous recap and summary. I enjoyed Peter Hogans work, at the time it felt a bit like some old wounds were healing with the series and the characters started to reappear.

So Durham Red went off on her merry way at somepoint to the sleep machines, but where is she in the current series of Stronty Dog?

My guess is that's she's havng her snooze drifting off somewhere in time and space, but she's a great character to revisit in a different way as per the Scarlet Apocrypha.

If only someone would write a new story for her, maybe with a bit of a re-design and a different artist that's earned his spurs on some big stories... like Dredd... that would be ace!  :)

Midway seating for me. Not too close, not too far. I'm not that fussed though, if I can't get those. I prefer aisle seats so I don't have to squeeze past people too.

Last film watched:  Crowning Tiger Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny.

It was okay. The dialogue was a bit ,cheesy not really helped that most people were speaking English this time. I would have preferred Mandarin with English subtitles like the original. Which I could have got, by changing the audio and subtitle settings but then mouths would have been out of synch. (I'm not really a fan of dubbing.) I guess they figured the film would appeal more to an international audience in English, but I thought the original did pretty well.

Before that, last film I watched was Logan Noir. That's a black and white version of Logan which came on the Blu-ray with the original.

Seems like a gimmick? It actually works, very well, adding to the atmosphere and fitting the setting wonderfully.
General / 2000 AD App iOS 11.3

The 2000 AD Featuring Judge Dredd app had been working just fine on my iPhone 7 when it was on iOS 10 however today as I have updated to iOS 11.3 now whenever I am opening the app it is simply displaying a blank screen on the startup and crashing itself automatically. Any solution?

Some interesting stuff in there - great that Mark of the Ninja is getting a Switch release. An amazing game that deserves a wider audience. The only stealth game I've ever enjoyed.

Really? Not even the Dishonoreds? The only other stealth games I've enjoyed!
