Unrecognized Fatal Exception GK3

So, I had just slaughtered the demon and just as I'm about to relish in Gabe dumping Madeline I get the dreaded Unrecognized Fatal Exception. It really destroys the game for me. Good thing I could play it (sort of) on my Dino before its E-drive took up smoking. I've been browsing the net for possibl...

Re: Board (Bored?) Games!

I finally managed to acquire a board game I've been dying to get for years - it was never released in The Netherlands, but lo and behold, there was the German edition in my second-hand shop for less than 2 euros: Agathas Letzter Wille or 13 Dead End Drive! Hurray! My chandelier is in one piece but i...

Re: What are some bands/albums that were defining for you?

The Musicology Student Talking Phase 5: Ah, the Baroque era... The switch to major/minor tonality, the extensive improvisation and embellishments, the basso continuo... In my studies this period started exactly in 1600, with Montevideo's opera Orfeo, considered to be the first true opera. Performanc...

Re: What are you playing now?

Just finished Beneath A Steel Sky and Lilly Looking Through. Beneath A Steel Sky was disappointing (although I liked the addition of Lady Piermont from the Broken Sword series, plus I understand that BS2 easter egg) - it is difficult but there is a lot of walking around and annoying animation cycles...

Yes, you can also lose some o the weapons. There's a man who always cycles away fast when you approach - because he has the booster you need to jump the gorge. Male with black hair iirc.

Re: What are some bands/albums that were defining for you?

Phase 4 of the musicologist talking: The inimitably enthusiastic Mr Jas was our teacher on renaissance music - he had reached infamy when he had made one hardrocker student swap his Fender for a renaissance lute. The renaissance era saw a development of polyphony, the development of rhythm and the e...

Re: Quarantine Sanity - Things To Do (Feel Free To Add Your Own)

Quarantine for me has been a return to old love - old music, Cluedo, and now I'm going back to the Duck-universe with my beloved Count Duckula. :D

Re: Epic.

Beau and belle are both adjectives. Along with bel these all mean beautiful. "Belle" is used for words that are feminine and "beau" for masculine words. Un beau garçon, un beau chanson, or the magazine Beau Monde.Une belle fille, la belle musique, for feminine words. Or as the famous song by Michel ...
