So, yep

  It's been awhile I know, I basically stopped taking screenshots in game and felt it would be more appropriate to discuss each level as a whole and relate them back to each other.  This requires finishing the game first then going through and playing looking at the levels in peace.  Well actually I could do it anyway but the game is too interesting.

The other issue I had was that discussing short pieces of a level or physics puzzle ended being kind of pointless outside of the context of the level it's in.

So eventually I'll go back and take a look at the level designs themselves.  In the meantime, here's my last few.


Such a strange case. Not the medic, the computer.


Here it is zoomed in. 




At the top of the Citadel:  It's strange because all through the game wondering around through City 17 it looked deserted and run-down, now I come up to the top of the citadel and there are lots of lights, cars on the highways, working bridges...  It's also interesting that when I was on the ground the top of the citadel was obscured in fog, though now at the top you can clearly see the nightscape.  Maybe.. the "fog" has gone away in the evening..right sure it has...

So I'm going to start the FEAR expansion Extraction Point, then Portal, with Flatout as well every so often.  And umm, non-game things.  Outside.

Found this ad on my Windows Live Messenger this evening.


But hang on a second! Tokyo and "Sidney"  are not in Australia.  It's one of those stupid subscription services where you "win" the competition and then they just charge you for ringtones.

Seriously though, I don't get the whole ringtone thing.  Every phone on the market today can be configured for any mp3 (or other format) as a ringtone, it's not like it's hard to get the song on to the phone...  Getting the cable's the hardest (and most expensive) part though.
