Remembering I can pin toots now, so...
Hi! My name is Jamie Durbin, and I review games on a wee site called The Mad Welshman (themadwelshman.co.uk) . You can support my work in a variety of ways, or follow my art account, @TMWArtStuff , for artstuff, which I also do!

The downside of going through old Image/Image subsidiary comics is that, while you find the gems and the oddities, what you *also* find is crimes against anatomical drawing. I mean, where do I even *begin* with how this is wrong, wrong, wrong? 😭 (Image CW'd because holy heck, Escher ahoy) https://mastodon.social/media/AwDMnxB5x1ZIVuP4bIg
REVIEW: Freaky Awesome, alas, is gruesomely cool on the surface, but under the hood suffered from the toxic waste. http://themadwelshman.co.uk/freaky-awesome-review/
EARLY ACCESS REVIEW: Nowhere Prophet (Sharkbomb Studios) is very fun, for all that it's still in Alpha. Lovin' it! http://themadwelshman.co.uk/nowhere-prophet-early-access-review/

"Are you Antirax?"
"I am. I am also old, and tell only truth."
"But deceit is in a Dragon's blood, so it's said."
"I am old, as I stated, and truth, I have found, is a far sharper blade than my claws."
"Here. Two truths. Firstly, that from this moment, I know you, and you live by my blessing. No plane, no ship can hold this, should I choose it."
"Your king will fail. A simple truth, where the lie comes only from your seeking."
Well, only Tangledeep and Nowhere Prophet survived Technical Difficulties (the latter *somewhat*) , but here they are. Both enjoyable.

Thanks to everybody who hung out and chatted, it was good to see you. 😘 👍
Okay, streams over, technical difficulties were had, but folks seemed to have fun, and that's the *important* thing! (Well, that, and me wordsing gud)
Thanks to everyone who turned up, I'll link the VODs when they're freshly baked! :wink:
Well, it's 2 hours to streaming time, and today? It's ROGUELIKE-SORTA-LIKE-LIKE DAY.
Nah, just kidding, it's mostly Roguelikes. Planned are: -
KeeperRL (The tileless version, as I am a poor)
and Cogmind if I have any energy left at all after that.
Will be posting when I'm live when I'm live, but in the meantime, https://www.twitch.tv/jamiethed is the place to subscribe. 😜
...Guess who just lost 5 years of their life from shock? Folks, a rare sighting of *two* Slumberlings in #CavesofQud . AKA - "Pleaseohpleaseohpleasedon'tletEITHERwakeup!" (And yes, when I entered, a Snapjaw Hunter was in that right corridor. The cheeky (and suicidal) Sod!) https://mastodon.social/media/XeFWzSG8Z0wSMgjCIZY
The earlier issues were, on the one hand, blatant rewrites of other stuff with OCDNS replacements, like Blitz for Flash, Thunder Girl for Mary Marvel, Beacon for Green Lantern, so on... Although some of them were interesting, like the "Retrospective" on the comic depictions of their Image styled Cap'n America, US SOLDIER.
Notice I didn't necessarily say it was great. It was okay, a little too impressed with itself, but... Yeah, it *was* interesting.
Well, today has mostly been a self care day, and part of that, as strange as it may seem, iis going through old Image comics, *sort of* alphabetically (Skipping the oobvious POWER DEATH SQUAD OF DEATH AND POWER STUFF)
Got to Big Bang Comics, and... Wow, they got away with a *lot* there. Issue 10 *starts* with a Nightwing ripoff meeting Elektra and... The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. No homage, just... The TMNT, straight up.
REVIEW - Stars In Shadow's Legacy DLC adds a fair bit of content to a friendly entry point for the 4X-Curious. http://themadwelshman.co.uk/stars-in-shadow-legacy-dlc-review/
