Re: TV Series

I’ve been on a British kick lately. Just finished the whole lot of Not Going Out and have recently started Ghosts, which I absolutely love.

Re: Laura Bow and the Mechanical Codex

Er ... what is "bobblehead Maniac Mansion"? *curious* I've played Maniac Mansion (and its sequel, Day of the Tentacle) many times, but I can't remember any bobbleheads there! :) I just meant that the Manic Mansion characters all had exaggeratedly large heads, not dissimilar to bobblehead figures.

The cartoony style doesn't bother me too much. It's not too over exaggerated.
True. At least it’s not in bobblehead Maniac Mansion territory.

Re: Kyrandia Book 1 (Complete), II (In Progress), III (Pending)

Partly to divert myself from the stressors of the last few years, I’ve been digging into these three games deeper than I ever have before. Not just replaying them, but studying how they’re put together, and have found some useful hacks through trial and error. I’ve even managed to correct a few grap...

Re: Laura Bow and the Mechanical Codex

The location renderings all look beautiful, so I give them huge props for that. The characters are certainly well done, but I’m still not digging the overly cartoony aesthetic. It just doesn’t gel with the very dignified portrait art the first two games had. Nonetheless, it’s still exciting to see L...

Re: AI written article about Laura Bow

Huh. Isn't it "The Colonel's Bequest"? Not "Colonel Bequest" or "Colonel Bequests"? ;) (The second one makes "bequests" sound like a verb, instead of the noun it actually is. As in, "The Colonel requests the pleasure of your company...") ;) Just goes to show how unreliable this AI is. It messed so ...

Re: AI written article about Laura Bow

Don’t take anything this article wrote as gospel. It compiled text together from random sources, and spliced different factoids together.

It wrote me another piece which tried to claim Andrew Lloyd Webber and David Niven were cast members of “I Love Lucy”. So...yeah.

I prefer the original realMyst as well. The newer version is impressive, but a bit plastic looking.

AI written article about Laura Bow

I was recently testing out an online AI writing program, and asked it to do a piece about Laura Bow. What follows is the unedited, unaltered article it gave me, though I have bolded a few of my favourite lines. Based on my experiences, I believe AI writing to be currently useless at good research, b...
