Games / Re: Rogue Trooper Redux
« Last post by GrudgeJohnDeed on Today at 01:49:23 am »
I really like it when games purposefully play with your sense of morality, Spec Ops is a good example JamesC. I never played World at War though, I'm not sure how it was executed there. I'm working on a little indie platformer at the moment which will have it's own moral conundrum near the end,  assuming I don't bottle it!

On topic, I played a bunch of Rogue Trooper Redux with a mate, it was great stuff. It takes a little bit to get going but once you're all powered up with your biochips and the real gameplay has shown itself, it's still as good as I remember.

We also booted up the PS2 version afterwards to compare, it's interesting. Theres something more cohesive about the art style of the original, its much more stylised and then in the Redux they've injected some realism, perhaps creating a clash. Redux still looks cool though, the extra resolution goes a long way for a kick off! Does anyone know if it does 4k on the Pro and the X? that would be cool.

Can someone illuminate me as to if there is a link for more news on this? I'd like to know what format these are being released and in how many volumes...and when. I have just over half of the Titan collection but would consider picking this collection up instead. I do enjoy those hardbacks, however.

Back, the post-Peep Show Mitchell and Webb series.

Weirdly never really got into Peep Show, but this is great.

The funniest bits are the sweariest or pay-offs so don't really translate to trailers.

Well worth a watch.

I've found it's only helpful in certain circumstances. With really detailed linework, especially when it has crosshatching/texturing etc I tend to find that I spend more time fixing the flatting separations BPelt generates than I would just doing all the separations manually from scratch.

I imagine it’s the BPelt Photoshop plug-in. There are a lot of real colourists who swear by it, although when I flirted briefly with the idea of colouring professionally, I didn’t find it much help.

You’ll find everything you need here.
Creative Common / Chris Blythe Flatting software?

I always have questions after the 2000ad thrill cast with creators


Chris Blythe (colorist) said he uses flatting software to help with coloring, any know the name of the software he might be using?, or maybe his site that I might send a question?

The View From The Cheap Seats. A collection of Neil Gaiman's essays, introductions, and speeches. Extremely interesting reading.
Books & Comics / Re: Pat Mills - Be Pure! Be Vigilant! Behave!

Yeah, what CalHab said. It's a mess of a book, but there's a ton of fascinating (occasionally infuriating) content, even for those of us who read a lot of Mills rants.  You'l learn the Mills definition of synchronicity, for a start (it's when a Toxic! character of his has the same last two letters in his first name as Steve McManus, who years later developed Egmont's own Toxic). If you imagine it as 'Recollections From a Highstool in Marbella', it works better than thinking of it as a 'history' of any kind: although I still don't think that's an excuse for not running a spellchecker over it before slapping it between two covers.   

Definitely worth getting though, especially if you like anti-witchcraft conspiracy theories and quickly-glossed-over UFO encounters. Don't blame me if you come out of it with a deep sense of sympathy for past Thargs.

I do intend to comment on the actual content, but there's a lot to say and I need to find the time!

I would still say its worth reading. The criticisms above are broadly valid, it badly needs a professional editor, but the content has a lot of value.

It needs to be read in context with Thrill Power Overload and MacManus' book, in my opinion. I certainly wouldn't recommend it to anyone looking for a definitive history.
