Avoid Spikes #146: Time (Gentlemen, Please!) Tunnel Pt. 6

Avoid Spikes #146: Time (Gentlemen, Please!) Tunnel Pt. 6Guess you can tell I have been playing a lot of Fable 3 recently, with this little Victorian bit of our ongoing beer-fuelled time travel story. Well, true, the game isn’t strictly set in the Victorian period, but it’s near enough.

And who wouldn’t be disappointed by a lack of dirigibles?

Where I can, I like to draw inspiration for the strip from real life. In this case, totally stealing from a random re-tweet. If it was yours…then, well…yoink!

Avoid Spikes Quickie: #144 - Albion The Watch List

So I have spent (in total) a good couple of days over the last couple of months pottering about in the world of Fable 3. Never played any of the earlier incarnations, so I am not tainted by the “OMG they changed everything” school of thought. As I tend to enjoy just wandering about, exploring and finding things in virtual worlds (I decided to not just barrel through the story, which was a wise move) then this is right up my alley. Add to that the excellent “British” humor, awesome visual style and engrossing (if somewhat boiled down) story and I can overlook the game’s many flaws.

And – aside from a gorgeous soundtrack (which I am listening to as I write) – listen to the voice acting! OMG. Consider me absorbed.

Paleontologists can tell a lot from fossilised dinosaur bones. But in the same way that archaeologists would have us believe that pretty much every ancient structure was built as a “ritual site”, there are some things that will always remain pure speculation when it comes to how dinosaurs actually lived. I like to think that dinosaur life was not just all killing and eating and being all ferocious and scary. I refuse to accept that there wasn’t at least one dinosaur that didn’t feel right unless it was slouching about in a pair of slingbacks.
