woo-hoo…! Holidays

October 30, 2009

Just a little note to my millions of fluffy followers(ahem!).  I’ll be away for about a week as of this afternoon visiting family in the dear ol’ Motherland.

Only 3 reviews left, which i’ll pick up on when i return.

Have fun, and don’t drink too much.

As if, huh!? <snigger>


IF comp 2009 – The Grand Quest

October 29, 2009

Ah-hah. A grand quest.

Must be good. Hope there’s not a cave crawl in it though. D’ ya think there’s gonna be a cave crawl? Dammit. There is isn’t there? There’s gonna be a sodding cave crawl.  Maybe it’ll have a cave crawl, and it’ll be good. Huh…? huh…?

No. No, maybe not.

Ok then,

>Take lamp

…and off we go!

IF comp 2009 – Broken Legs

October 29, 2009

This looks good.

Cover helps of course. I know it’s shallow of me, but it does show that the girly-type author(huh! the author’s a girly-type. Well, well, well!) has loved her little creation.

Does it show?

Well, yes. Yes it does. It always shows in my opinion, even when i haven’t liked the finished product very much, the time and effort and… yes, the love has shone through(ok, you can throw up now). But seriously, it is worth spending that little extra time and effort to polish your beloved a little(polish what? you perv.)

So, I’m gonna play this one again. After the comp. Just for the sheer pleasure of it. Yep, the sheeeeer pleasure.

IF comp 2009 – The Duel That Spanned the Ages

October 29, 2009

I’m not going to labour the point.  Ya know, the one where i tell you over and over again that i really don’t like sci-fi in IF.

This one however, turned out to be pretty well done.

I still don’t think i’m ever going to be the type that gets immense enjoyment from this genre though.

So, we’re some kinda future hero-soldier with our cool, futuristic talking armour and our obligatory super-duper weapons and shit.  Nice.  And we’re gonna go find some people or at least find out what happened to ’em.  And then there’s futuristic creatures and stuff too.

Hope that’s not too spoilery.  Don’t think it gives much away anyway.

So, enjoy.  I kiiinnnnnda did.

IF comp 2009 – Gleaming the Verb

October 28, 2009

Hehe!  tricky little bugger this randomized list.  More puzzles.  More confusion.  More humiliation.

This one screwed me over big time.  Especially when i read some of the reviews afterwards and discovered that absolutely everybody(except me) found it extremely easy.  So easy in fact that intense smugness drifted out of the screen and wafted through the room in thick, saccharine swirls as i read each review in a desperate search for one single person, just one sodding person, that didn’t <smug> me to death.

Well, in the words of a very great man(!?!)

IF comp 2009 – Condemned

October 26, 2009

What the F**K man?  I mean, seriously now.  WHAT THE F**K?

At first i thought, my god someone’s getting hanged.  Then he gets his damned crucifix out.  And we’re not talking about a little iddy-biddy one on a gold chain here.  Oh no.  We’re talking a F**K – ASS one stashed in the garage.

I mean, WHAT THE F**K?

Just… get a puppy or something.

IF comp 2009 – Earl Grey

October 26, 2009

Stress, stress and more stress.

Bank holiday here.  Always a bit weird, these bank holiday weekends.  Anybody else got a headache?  I have.

So stressed!

Might be a short review, this one.

S’ very good though.

No, that wasn’t the review.  I’m just saying, S’ very good.  Well, i liked it anyway.

So, let’s go then.
