Translation: For the first post of International Talk Like A Pirate Day I thought I would trawl through the lazylaces vaults for all the old games I'd linked to that involved pirates and all things piratey. In turns out there are only two though. And they're both recent. It's a good day to play them again though...

Dona Room 2 again and couldn't understand why, but then I realised that Extremely Common Escape (I'm not sure why the name needed changing - I didn't have a problem with that part), is actually the English translation of that original point'n'click game, which hopefully should make the thing a little easier [subed by jenz, f00 & superst4r].
The ABC Game is a very simple, at least if you know your alphabet, but very cute game. Trap the letters by clicking on them as they bounce around the scrolling landscape, and then reconstruct them in the mini-games (guess how many there are!) to prove you know which letters they are and what they should look like. Just the kind of un-taxing thing my brain needs first thing on a Monday morning [via jay is games].
I spent a large part of the weekend updating the stylesheets for Lazylaces because, well... just because really (hence the lack of posts yesterday). Sometimes you just fancy a change don't you? Oh, and I remember what started it now - I hadn't tested the site on my Mac for a while and some of the site was looking a bit weird so I ended up working on a complete revamp of both the lazy blue and lazy red themes. As with everytime I start tinkering things got a bit out of hand and it took a lot longer than expected so it's not ready quite yet, I still have some testing and tweaking to do, but watch out for an update on the site sometime this week. In the meantime I added a special background for the upcoming Talk Like A Pirate Day which I'm very happy with :)
International Talk Like A Pirate Day in pre'ious years, but I'm not goin' t' make the same mistake this year, I'm mightily lookin' forward t' it. So this is just a quick reminder for you all t' brush up on your pirate 'ocab prior t' this Tuesday (19th September). It would be great t' see some pirate speak in the site comments :o) Gar, Where can I find a bottle o'rum?

Morbus there's some medieval mayhem afoot. The game is a role player, and you're able to choose to play either a warrior, a traitor, a jester (this was the quite obvious choice for me) or an alchemist. Personally I found all the key controls a bit tricky, and I was liable to get them wrong in tight situations, I like a bit of mouse control, but curiously I found myself liking the lute and flute soundtrack - lets rock! I also found myself shouting "I'm going to get medieval on your ass" at the screen a lot, but I don't think I've come down off my fruit-sugar rush yet, which explains that one [subbed by Nick G].
Zero 7 for sometime now, and for the last few weeks their latest album has been my iPod soundtrack of choice for walking across London to work early every morning (not walking across the whole of London you understand, just the bit between the railway station and my office). Anyway I've just found the video for the track "Crosses" online. Cool. Not my favourite track, that would be "Today" (you can find it on the media player on their site), but a cool video none-the-less.
Blue Margarita, that's what I was looking for. If I can stop shaking for long enough to drive to the store I need to go buy some Tequila, Amaretto & Triple Sec.... (normal service will be restored soon, as soon as we can calm Graeme down anyway - Ed). Update: Scrap that. I just need some vodka & pomegranate juice. Thanks to Jacqueline for firing off a link to the Pomegranate, Blueberry & Vodka Cocktail as soon as I'd posted.
point'n'click adventures (and some other games too) tucked away in this Mercedes web site, primarily aimed at kids, but fun for everyone. I'm playing South Africa Adventure (sorry I can't directly link to it, navigate as follows: click game icon > adventure & strategy > south african adventure) as I've had one of my own, although mine involved less point'n'click puzzles. And remember kids, once you're done playing, tell mummy and daddy that they have to buy a Merc and don't stop until they do [subbed by winniethepooh].
point'n'click, a large dollop of violence, some video footage, and lashings of first-person-shooter gaming, and you get FPS IRL. It's quite a neat idea, if a little short (I'm guessing it takes quite a lot of work to make though), but not one for the kids, or peace loving hippies, to play. And remember folks: don't try this at home. Shooting people in real life is not big or clever [via gamershood].
Domino Pressure is a curious game where you try to squash tomatoes with dominos against a tight time limit. Knock down all the dominos in the process and you're rewarded with an increased time limit for later levels, leave some standing, and your time limit quickly diminishes. Not running out of time is very tricky, but then again so is not having just one more attempt [subbed by Meeker].
