From the Vaults: And Then There Were None

agatha-christie-and-then-there-were-none-2005-game-engI think every gamer, past, present, and future has that one obscure game that they just absolutely love. It is that game that nobody knows about, nobody has even heard of, and by all accounts you feel like you are the only soul on this earth that plays it. But it is still one of your all time favorites and you will always go back to it whenever you are bored or feeling nostalgic. For me, that game will always be Adventure Company’s Agatha Christie inspired adventure, And Then There Were None. A very obscure point and click adventure, I found this gem when I was with a group of my friends in my local Wal-Mart one day. When I looked at the murder mystery, I studied it, and seeing the price tag I said ‘why the hell not?’ This purchase would be one of the best purchases that I have ever made as it has brought me nothing but joy for several years. But, this does raise the question, how does the game hold up over time? And I cannot think of a better use of the ‘From the Vault’ series then for a game such as this.

Agatha Christie and Why My Computer Hates Me

Yeah… This is how I feel about my computer.

I am happy to report that I just posted my most recent video to my site. It is a book review on one of my favorite authors and favorite books for that matter, Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express.

Now the review itself I thought turned out really well.  I thought I portrayed the book in a very positive light and gave it the review that a story of its caliber deserves. The book is after all, one of the best murder mystery novels out there and underrated for the quality that really goes into it.

But I can’t give too much away. If you wish to watch the review please check it out here: 

I also decided to go with a new look for my wardrobe. My original look I felt was too “college friendly”  and I must evolve my look in order to portray the place in my life I am at. Personally I quite enjoy the black dress shirt and blue jeans. It has a look of professionalism but with a little bit of a care free attitude.

However there was a problem I am ashamed to report. You see this review was scheduled for next week and the review this week was suppose to be a Transformers Comic Book Review and it would be finished now if my computer didn’t hate my existence.

One of the biggest hurdles that I have had to leap on this journey is my lack of a budget and “sub-par” equipment to work with. Now I know all people cannot start off with the best equipment in the business but still, I wish I could get a bone thrown here. My DVD burning software is good, my camera is decent, and my tripod is… Well a tripod.

The problem comes with my poor old laptop and my sub-par movie editing software. My laptop has reached the age of five and is in the twilight years of its life while the movie editing software I purchased can only be considered a few steps above Windows Movie Maker. It crashes often which means I have to save as quickly as possible to make sure I don’t lose my progress AND in the process of creating video files the audio will go haywire.

Hopefully I will be getting a little influx of cash soon in order to purchase a new laptop and a new movie editing software. Until then I guess I will have to continue beating my head against a wall and flipping the bird to Nero’s sub-par software.

But I will keep on pushing forward. After all the really good things in life are things that you have to fight for and I am not going to give up just because of a few minor problems.

You can look forward to seeing my Transformers Comic Review next week.

Thanks for reading.
