Quick Thoughts: Crimson Shroud

Image
We were so so lucky over Christmas we're in the ridiculous happy situation of having a stack of games to play through. We picked up Starship DamreyCrimson Shroud, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Star Fox 64 3D, Fire Emblem Awakening, the Pokemon typing game and Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. It's a great place to be, we're not taking this wonderful wonderful situation for granted. The only downside is what do we play first? Unfortunately, it looks like Nintendo eShop title, Crimson Shroud won't get a look in for a long time. We've played 6 hours of it so far. It got great reviews, technically it's an astonishing feat but with so much other gameplay to get through it's too.... well here's out quick thoughts (tm).

What we liked The aesthetic. It looks like a lovingly detailed tabletop game complete with branded characters bases.The ridiculous depth of the statistics.You get to roll virtual die. Second only to rolling real die. The story unfolds like a …

Gone since September. Ha he been working hard? Doing research? Travelling the world and conversing with the interesting people he found therein? I am proud to reveal the answer in a rare email from the estranged co-author of this blog.

Okay so playing Wow for some of it but not for 3 months surely?



Oh okay so maybe one month. Anything else?

Thank god! A casual game. There's hope for her yet. RIP in Richie.

You know what bothers me? iTunes Visualiser, It has been out for about 4 years now and if any improvements have been made to it, they have certainly not been aesthetic. To be honest I don’t even turn visualiser on anymore, for two reasons, firstly that fucking apple logo pops up in the middle every 15 minutes, and secondly it is the same patterns over and over again. I would like a bit more coding going into the visualiser I would like it to read the ID3 tags and interpret the song names genres etc.
Its simple, certain patterns will get created from certain genres:

Metal/Hard Rock – Mainly black with fire motifs spikes and chains.
Pop – Light breezy pinks, purples, blues, brighter.
Electro – Pulses of neon colours.
Classical – Hard to classify (sick) due to the range of classical music, suggest refined, bold colours like black and white, perhaps a sheet music motif.
Spoken Word – Simple oscilloscope
Podcasts – Given there appears to be a library of different patterns I believe that Podcast p…
