The Longest Journey

Only posting once per week is a valid option isn't it? Oh well... It is now.

The week started well with our tip across the city. Things didn't go quite so well as the first time (possibly as school was back from their mid-semester) and am sure we were stopped at possibly EVERY set of traffic lights for the trip across, eventually arriving 15 minutes late. Fortunately the prac wasn't as long this time so we still finished in time. The rest of the week was uneventful, with most of the time taken up by assignments and projects (which I should really finish).

Also on Monday evening, I found a new computer game, "The Longest Journey". Not really new considering it was released back in 2000, but a game I hadn't played or heard of. For those who haven't heard of it, it is of similar style game-play to that of Grim Fandango, the Monkey Island series and Full Throttle in that you control a lead character and puzzles are (almost) all inventory based, although the game setting is completely different.

Despite the aging graphics (compared to today's standards), it was very enjoyable and I even stayed up till the early hours of this morning to finish it. The game is heavily story driven so the game-play isn't as prominent but many of the games of the genre are similar to this. Now all I need is to find somewhere in Australia who stocks the sequel, Dreamfall.

I've also recently downloaded the Voices of the Lifestream album (a Final Fantasy VII OverClocked ReMix album). I am yet to listen to the majority of the songs (as they are on my computer, 300km away) however the first and last are very impressive so I have high hopes for everything else.

Only 4 weeks to go until summer holidays - scary.

I hope you enjoyed Voices of the Lifestream in the time after that you've had to check it out. Everyone really put forth their best efforts on it, and I think it paid off greatly.<br />

Thanks Larry.<br />

Both 'Voices' and 'Chrono Symphonic' are excellent compilations, and so are the majority of mixes posted. I do check back every month or two to get the newer downloads - keep up the great job :D<br />
