At times, even Electronic Arts do okay. By publishing something more thoughtful than the usual products. This game is a mix of a platformer and visual narrative story, it is made by some Swedish people, and it actually bigger than it looks at first.
We start out simple. You gain control over a weird red yarn-made doll, and you set out to explore photos in the old house, entering the appropriate memories and locations and just going through them. There's no really epic quest here - you just collect memories, making old family photos appear in the album. That's literally it. And along the way you, without all that much explanation, learn the story of a single family. That's about it, really.
What hides behind a simple premise, however, is an extremely well-crafted game. Starting with mechanics. You are made of string, and while you walk, you leave trail if strings behind you. On checkpoints you get more string, however, you might not have enough to directly reach your destination without some thinking first. So you have to be mindful of your own path, which is something you rarely see as game mechanic. In addition, levels offer you nice variety in puzzle types, some of which you solve by skill and quickles, and some by figuring out the physics.
And also, graphic and music. Music is just extremely damn good. Made specifically for each level, it harmonizes with the intended feeling. And it really creates your mood for the game. And graphic... well, as I said, you control the yarn doll in a game with simply story. How good can graphics be? It's extremely good. Shimmer of the water, snow-covered strings, animals in the background and foreground. Game looks pretty amazing, and there were no cut corners in its making.
All in all, it's a short enough game, with story that may or may not make you feel involved, but the work made for this game is absolutely incredible and deserves respect. Very nice platforming and visual experience.
And, of course, you can watch me going at it here.
Alright, we are moving! Thankfully, we had all the matches now, so here's the brackets.
Fights we are going to have now:
We are close to finishing here, so again, I am not setting strict time limits... just get it done. Fight!
@ccc first of all, I already asked you this question, here and through PM. No answer. Second of all I am waiting on chat. For quite a long time now.
Born: March 20, 1976, Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.
Died: July 20, 2017, Palos Verdes Estates, California, U.S (hanging)
Well, fuck. I guess, it is a thing, for rock-starts to die dramatically. You shine brighter than most, and you burn out faster than most, too. Chester Bennington - Linkin Park vocalist, in case you aren't aware - was found in his private home, dead after apparent suicide. Right now, details are scarce, but they say it was hanging. Noone can be sure of a reason, though, people speculate, that earlier death of Chris Cornell was part of it. Chris Cornell killed himself, also by hanging, and whose birthday it would have been this Thursday. Add to it alcohol and drug problems, which is a constant occupational hazard for rock-stars, and you can easily see, how they get emotional and kill themselves, of just plain overdose.
With being dead so early in life, Chester Bennington did give us a great deal of music. I mean, fuck, if you are a Linkin Park fan, I don't have to tell you anything. If you aren't - you still heard the songs, could not have avoided it in any way. So, if there's one thing certain - we do have a lot to remember him by now. Still, always sad to see a talent go. Always makes you feel a bit numb inside.
Will, I do work tomorrow, but sure. What timezone and time, anyways?
So I am not exactly a fan of Space Dandy anime. But this... THIS!.. So, music is "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars, and let me tell you, if you know that song, you know it's perfect for this anime. Add to this huge amount of editing - not changing imagery, but styling it as a comics book, and the wacky nature of series themselves... Worth a watch even if you aren't a fan.
Alright, so the fight that's lift is actually just mine with @ccc (reply btw). Finally things are moving.
@Rebel post the link
Okay, well holy fuck, Wolfy lost a match! Now, we are playing double fucking elimination, so this all can still get turned the fuck around, but this is already a major feat. Good work!
Now, let's see at the matches we had and did not have and let's decide on the winners:
First, fights we had:
@Wolfangle vs @Grinners - done fight, good fight!
@virtuNat vs @EvoRulz - almost wrote this one off, but hay, you did it after all.
@Kirn vs @Teru - good fight. I feel somewhat bad eliminating active player.
And the ones we did not have:
@holg0290 vs @Rebel - my fucking god, you fucking inept fucktards. Honestly, I hate you both and I almost want to give Rebel a win just for the retardness of it. But I will not.
@Qarr vs @AshitoKenji - Qarr is still dead, so yeah, nothing to say here.
@Farris vs @ccc - simply for this fucking 'Hey, sorry I forgot about this XD' Farris goes down.
If you have any problem with fairness of the tournament - no fucks are given, and here's how brackets look now:
You may notice it looks a bit weird. Now, here's the thing. Losers brackets needs to have more matches than winners bracket. So it actually needs to move a bit faster. So I can stall this shit as long as I can. So here are the matches:
@holg0290 vs @Rebel - fight, you fuckers, fight!
@Grinners waits for victor of that match, so... for now, take a break, train some more. Keep yourself in shape.
@Wolfange - you also waiting for now for results of next matches.
@AshitoKenji vs @virtuNat - elimination is at stake. Fight!
@Kirn vs @ccc - oh hey, turns out I actually arbitrarily decided that I will fight ccc and not Farris. Well, that's life.
So, to sum up, I want to see 2 idiots fight in winners bracket, and I want to have 2 good fights in losers brackets. I am not giving deadlines anymore, but do it within a week and/or before I get pissed again.
