Knock Knock. Whos there? Just let me in.

Hiatus.Invented by Bronson Alcott, who wanted his students to have active physical play and time to talk. It is also what my blog is back from.

So yeah i'm back. The people who actually read this will have something to read. So what should I review? Well what about what I promised all those months ago. Valkyria Chroni--ahahahaha.



I'm not reviewing this game.

Just go play it.

Make your own assumptions, I mean its been out since 2007 or 8? I mean why would I review a game that has been out for so long. What would be the point. Unless.... Right from now on this segment will be called "Fashionably Late". It will review games that came out between a year and 10 months ago and will be a weekly segment starting next monday. First review? Wait and see.

This is Tyramatt, and you will not have to wait 6 months for another update.

I have a blog? What?

Oh my god, been forever since I last posted... Been trying to relax a bit.

Ant-Man is now just an Ant. Although it is done.

May post a new game review tomorrow, but it will be for another old PS3 Title: Valkyria Chronicles.

Day 2.

Redid the Human Part, was unhappy with how the first one turned out. This will do for now, hopefully will fix any problems when UV Mapping and Turbosmoothing.

Day 1.

Alot of work done today. Basic Design drawn up and one 3D Model almost completed. Will probably complete it tomorrow.

Screenshots of Model.

This is Tyramatt, Day 1 over.

Return from Hiatus and New Project

For some reason my Google account froze me out of my blogspot from my last blog post to today, so that was fun.

Also this marks the start of my new project which is my first attempt to make a unity game! I will attempt to update this blog daily and will be working on the project daily. No promises that the blog updates will happen, but I am making it a challenge for myself to work on this every day.

Today there will be 3D Modelling done, but otherwise I have most of the basic game design down.

This begins, Day 1.

This is Tyramatt, Day 1 End.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Review


Let me just start by saying that I hate Keira Knightly and Orlando Bloom in Dead Man's Chest and At World's End. They acted out of the characters that had been established in Curse of the Black Pearl and while some may say that was chracter development for their characters, I refuse to believe that. It happened a bit quick. Just saying.

So when I heard that Knightly and Bloom were leaving the series I was happy lets say. I just wanted to see who was going to replace Knightly as the leading lady. They couldn't have made a choice that made me more happy. While I cannot dismiss the thoughts from my mind that they were trying to appeal to more of a male audience, Penelope Cruz was great in this film. Perfect for the role, I can't think of a better actress to play the character that had been written. It also helps that she is actually spanish.

There have been alot of negative reviews for this film and to be honest I can't really see why this film has the damning reviews it has. It picks up where the ending of At Worlds End left off where Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow is looking for the fountain of youth. We get a minority of the side characters back, but thankfully not all as I think that film was bloated with comic relief., from At Worlds End in the form of Gibbs becoming a more main character and Captain Barbosa still alive and kicking as a new Anti-Hero to go against Jack.

This film also has Blackbeard in it. With a twist of him being a weird kind of sorcerer who can make voodoo dolls and put ships in bottles. Strange.. But not a wasted opportunity.

I won't divulge many more of the details of the film, but all i'm going to say is that Jack makes an appearance more than once. I'll let you take that as you want.

It is a good film. I can understand what people are saying with "Jack Should not be the main character" and "It puts too much on the character" but I think this is a good film. Possibly better than Curse of the Black Pearl, which is my favourite of the series so far.

Pirates 4 gets a 9/10 on the Tyramatt Film Scale.

This is Tyramatt, signing off.

Four Loko - Lemonade and Fruit Punch

Thats right! Time for another double feature! You know, that thing I did once last christmas?

Lemonade is basically Lemonade. It is probably the most predictable of all of the ones I have had and actually tastes really nice. It tastes a bit of malt, but thats to be expected by this point.

Fruit Punch could not be further away from this. It is very, very rough. Although when I was drinking it, it started to grow on me quite a bit. I wonder if this is just the fact that it is alcohol and my judgement was clouded, or if the flavour was actually starting to grow on me... I let some of my friends have some and it came up about 50% like, 50% hate. A strange case indeed.

This is Tyramatt, and I won't be drinking for a while after this.
