I got Fable Anniversary today

First, the HD part. Yeah, the environments are pretty and honestly I have no problem with that part, but they dropped the ball when it came to the people. Dropped it on their faces, apparently.

Granted the original wasn’t fantastic in this regard, but there’s something…off about the HD Hero’s face. Like he’s constantly afraid of something….or he’s constipated.

Next up is the Fable 2/3 inspired control scheme. I’ll be quick about this since it’s optional. This control scheme doesn’t work very well for Fable 1, because the game itself wasn’t built to have the snappy combat that 2 and 3 have. Holding Y to fire a bow is uncomfortable, tapping it quickly to fire a gun every so often isn’t. Also I kept using magic when I wanted to run. Bollocks that is.

I’m not a fan of the Smartglass integration either. It’s as gimmicky as it gets, all it does is show you a comparison from the original to HD depending on where you are and a map. Y’know, the map that’s on the screen in the game….and the HD comparisons you can look up on a phone or a laptop. The point is, there is no point. The smart glass is dumb ass.

The general UI for menus and such isn’t very good either. I kept finding myself in the wrong section and getting frustrated. They also added some achievements, they have supposedly funny titles and I felt no desire to do them. 

The most annoying thing for me though is the screen instability. The bottom of the screen ripples and pixelates really badly whenever you’re moving. This isn’t minor either, this rippling and tearing sways back and forth about 3-4 centimeters for me. Utterly terrible.

Overall, get TLC second hand and you’ll probably have more fun. Anniversary isn’t an improvement.

My theory is that nanobii figured out how to make about 7 sounds and then decided to make the same song with them about 9 times

Why a dynamic mic?

i’ve always figured it’s because it can handle the high volumes better, but i may be wrong. Still, dynamic mics…

I’ve done this a few times, an Sennheiser MD421 and an SM57 are my go-to’s. Basically, you cross them in an XY position like Temporal says, but it goes a little further than that. You take one of the mics (either, doesn’t matter), and invert its phase, then you configure them until the guitar on the other side is as destructively phased as possible. Then you flip the mic that was out of phase back in phase and that should give you a really great capture of the tone and stereo image because they’ll be more or less perfectly aligned. 

You know how in Australia we have spiders and snakes and spider snakes and crocodiles masquerading as schoolchildren? Yeah those are bad and you don’t wanna run into them 

Well in the parklands where I live we have these 

that can be as long as your arm 

they’re called water dragons 

And even though they look like they’d eat your finger all they ever do is just chill out and do lizard stuff

I wanna play with a real 303 so damn bad

I have 3 options for going about my day tomorrow. 1) I lug 2 sets of clothes around for 12 hours and a bag to carry whatever I’m not wearing, 2 go back home and change (which would be twice as much in public transport and $20 for one day is too much for me)…or spend the entire day dressed as a pirate. 


This is my adult life so far.

Lately I’ve been getting better at just coming up with stuff on the spot and doing it from scratch. I’m also learning a bunch of new stuff about sound design, I’m pretty happy with how a lot of my stuff is turning out lately 

I figure someone might enjoy this. My dog in the studio in my parent’s place
