To fully appreciate it you have to play The Grudge
under the right conditions. Don't get me wrong, this is a great point'n'click
game anyway, and it will spook you out, but I first played this in my flat, alone, at midnight, in the dark, with the sound up loud on my headphones. Try it. If you don't know what goose bumps are you soon will do. Guaranteed to set your pulse racing [thanks sam
I'm not sure if game
is the right way to describe it, Galactor
is a bizarre point'n'click thing
. Good luck finding your barings [thanks Incog Neato
Long time lazylaces visitors (both of you) will know that Friday is the day I attempt to maintain an on-going site theme of sharing musical links. What can I say? On Fridays I like to losen up a bit and have a bit of a sing-a-long and/or a dance in celebration of the arrival of another weekend.
This week I'm interested to hear what your current moby ring tone is? Bonus points as always if you post a link to some audio. My phone is defaulted to the Magnum theme music at the moment (MP3 here), with some other funky stuff I won't go into for specific caller groups. Comment here with your tunes.
Alternatively if you don't have a mobile, or you think having actual music as a ring tone is cheesy and you refuse to change from that bloody nokia tune, post what you're listening to generally this week. This week I am mostly listening to 'Let Forever Be' by the Chemical Brothers.
The user interface for TrueLove
will be familiar to you if you played MilkoGame
the other day as this point'n'click
game is from the same designers, and the graphic style is not too different either, which is no bad thing imho. The question on everyone's lips though, is can you find your true love
? I've personally been trying to suceed at this game for almost a couple of decades now without much luck, so I'll be interested to see your hints in the comments
;o) Better still if one of the lazylaces ladeez could give me a walkthru... [thanks debbie
was described to me as a point'n'click
game, but it's really nothing more than a flash version of the old 'spot the difference' game. However the basic point'n'click
cheat does work with it, you know - that
key, which means that if you really drag it out all 5 levels can be done in about 30 seconds. A discussion about how lame this is will ensue in the comments
Fight your way through the swarm
of puki (they're albino vampire baby freaks don't you know?) in this stylish little shoot 'em up. Shame to break up those minimalist lines with great big pools of blood, but what can you do?
I've been happily using Filezilla
for some time now when I need FTP access to look after lazylaces, which I'm still likely to do, but I've just started using Tango Drop Box
for some of the more frequent tasks like uploading images to illustrate posts. It's simplicity itself. Create a drop box icon on your desktop and map it to a specific folder on your FTP site - then to upload files to that location you just drag'n'drop them onto the icon. It makes my image uploads a sinch. The software is free to use, but you'll need the .net framework installed - if you're up to date with your Windows updates you should have this aleady though [via Red Ferret
It might be a garage
rather than a room, the computer might not be a Mac (or look like one at least), but the point'n'click
er in you will still get the idea: must escape confined space by over using mouse type device....clickerty click [ta Incog Neato
Red Devil 2
might swap the use of a mouse for having to press the cursor and space keys but it's still got point'n'click
written all over it (albeit figuratively). Shiny disco balls to you all (arrrrgh that song).
A new perspective
on Sony's PSP? Hang on! I'd like a chance to get used to the regular perspective first. An advertising campaign many months away for us in the UK, so here's a sneak preview which you will have probably forgotten by the time it's on television.
Side Note: The music is Take Me Out by Franz Ferdinand in case you didn't know (I headed straight off to download it).
